Eve's Choice-Annihilating Mothers

So, why is there all of this crazy battling over our children and the souls of the mothers anyhow? In my quest to get to the heart of the matter I sought out the best expert resource I could find, the bible. My friend Pam and I let the Holy Spirit lead us. We didn’t know where to begin. I had it in my heart to start with Jezebel or maybe study Esther or other female characters in the bible. I knew that the topic of abortion, sex trafficking, pornography had come from evil and was of satan but somehow I hadn’t even considered going to where it all began, in the beginning. Pam and I read Proverbs 31 and were led to Genesis. I am really glad I didn’t go on a rabbit chase with all of the other biblical stories first. In reading Genesis 1-3, I really had an epiphany. The devil has been wanting to destroy women since the beginning of time. This may be obvious to many people but this was the first time I had read the book from the perspective of the annihilation of the woman and her children.

So Adam is there all content in paradise. God had commanded Adam to stay away from the Tree of Knowledge (Genesis 2:17). God decides that in order to take care of the beautiful garden that Adam with need a helper which He will make out of Adam’s rib. Adam lived with his beautiful helper (woman)blissfully innocent about evil and they don’t even know what shame was. All is happy and good. The devil comes into the garden in the form of a serpent and the serpent tells the woman that she should eat the fruit from the tree because then she would be ‘like God, knowing good and evil.” She gives into temptation and eats the fruit and in fact somehow convinced Adam that it was perfectly fine to eat from the tree. So then immediately they do know the difference for the first time ever between good and evil. And it is not good. All of the sudden they have shame and start to cover themselves or hide parts of themselves from eachother.

So God is walking in the garden and can’t find the man. He then discovers the man is hiding from Him. He figures out that Adam disobeyed His orders and actually did eat from the tree. Adam confesses that the woman talked Him into it. Then God curses the serpent with these words which are the key to all the problems we are facing now. God says to satan Genesis 3:15 “I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers…”. So, from the beginning there has been a battle between the devil (and his offspring of demons and unbelievers) and Eve who is the mother of all the living including Jesus. Jesus the offspring of Eve is the chosen one sent by God to offer an opportunity to eternal life to all who believe in Him. So the devil and eve continue to fight. Eve’s first choice was to take the fruit or obey God and have faith in God. She had never been introduced to evil before this so was easily persuaded although she did know that God told her not to eat from the fruit.

This battle continues. When a woman is faced with an unplanned pregnancy she is given a choice. The devil says to her “this will empower you and surely God will not want you to keep this baby when you are so young, unemployed…this is a wiser choice.” Abortion then kills one of Christ’s children and then the devil tries to annihilate the woman too who isolates herself and hides from God in her shame believing in a lie that God will never forgive her. Many times the devil succeeds as some women never turn to Jesus and spiral down into the abyss. But when the woman turns to the Lord in spite of her devastation her soul is saved to be reunited with her baby who is indeed in the arms of the Lord in heaven.
Still the devil is in hot pursuit to kill the children of God. His devices are abortion, sex trafficking with stealing children from mothers, pornography or any other demonic scheme that will take the offspring of eve out of heaven and into a burning eternal hell.

So the battle continues repeatedly throughout the bible. We end up in a world full of sin rather than the idyllic Eden and therefore constantly battle…

in romans 7:18-20 Paul says “For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do. No, the evil I do not want to do---this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.”

This is the same dilemma and struggle that Eve dealt with in the Garden of Eden. But the distinction and salvation is Christ embodied also in the Holy Spirit. God used the sacrifice of one of eve’s offspring JESUS to grant everlasting life to all of the other children of God who abide by the laws of the Spirit…

Romans 8 1-3
Life Through the Spirit
1Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus,[a] 2because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death. 3For what the law was powerless to do in that it was weakened by the sinful nature,[b] God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful man to be a sin offering.[c]

So as believers reconciled with God it is up to us to abide not by our sinful natures but instead by the law of the Holy Spirit..

Romans 8-12-16Therefore, brothers, we have an obligation—but it is not to the sinful nature, to live according to it. 13For if you live according to the sinful nature, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live, 14because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. 15For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship.[g] And by him we cry, "Abba,[h] Father." 16The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God's children.

The Holy Spirit unites with our spirit and proclaims us to be Chilren of God…looking back into genesis 3:15

He does say to the serpent
15 And I will put enmity
between you and the woman,
and between your offspring [a] and hers;

But it also says
He (the offspring…Jesus and those of us that the spirit has called us sons of God) will crush [b] your head, or IN JESUS WE CAN KILL THIS EVIL SERPENT THAT IT STRYING TO DESTROY US….and ti also says that the devil will strike his heel…the devil may be able to attack the heels of the sons of God but the son of God will win when he squashes the head of satan..

So eve made her choice….her children were and are targets but in the end God was merciful granting those children eternal life in spite of Eve’s bad choice…as long as we cling to THE SPIRIT there will be no condemnation and eternal life for all of eve’s offspring who have grabbed hold of the law of the Spirit through their brother JESUS CHRIST… AMEN!

This is good Deanna, the Devil comes to kill, steal, and destroy. Boy is he doing a good job with the women's movement and abortion alone, not to mention all the rest! Keep going girl! Love ya!
