The Servants of Yah met the prodigal son from afar, and guided him home, and that is wonderful, but first he had to leave the pigsty….
If you are a pig, then pigsties are nice, comfortable places, but if you are not a pig then they can be very smelly and brutal.
Adam chose to use his own godship, so Yah had to evict him from Eden into the physical existence that we call this world. An existence where we can build and wallow in our own pigsties in peace, knowing that Yah will leave us to it.
But for some of us, even the pigsties of our own building are not very comfortable, and we start casting around for a way out. We look, and we listen and sometimes we realise that our own godship is just not enough.
It is at this point we have to make a decision.
