When we talk about the ‘fall’ of Adam, we assume that the Adam of Genesis became ‘imperfect’ but are we justified in making that assumption?
Creation IS still Tov Mehod (perfect) because it is Yah’s creation and HE does not change. Adam was created in the “image and likeness” of Yah so he too IS perfect. But Adam was poisoned by the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. Did that make him imperfect?
We cannot know that until the last day when Yah winds up this Torah and brings down a new Torah.
Ir Adam is with Yah on the last day then his, Adam’s, perfection is revealed. Yah created us with a ‘homing’ mechanism like that of a pigeon, we take our inheritance (of perfection) and we stray off of the Way, we live with the pigs and eat with the pigs, but our perfection cuts in and some of us start on the way back to Yah.
Yah sends his servants to us and we are met from afar. There is great rejoicing and we are restored to sonship as if the deviation had never happened.
To understand this we must understand how much Yah respects our “freewill”; Yah will never override our freewill, he will always let us make the decision to turn away from the pig swill before we dine at His table. But this decision is embedded deep inside of our psyche, Yah himself placed it there, man will always seek a pathway to the gods, and for those who seek truth, and turn back to Yah, so Yah will send his servants to us as guides.
Few however seek the truth of the Creator, they seek other gods and godships, mainly material wealth and the self godship that wealth brings. Others seek the godship of false gods, and Satan thus gains a foothold in their lives. Yet more seek the godship of gifted men (and women); pastors, priests and rabbis who elevate themselves in false pulpits, who make a career and profession out of the exploitation of Yah’s gift to us.
The prodigal son did his deal direct with Yah, his Father, no emissaries, or go-betweens. He returned to his Father’s house so proving his own perfection in Him.
So we are not ‘fallen’ until the last day, and Messiah is here, now, to
“preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;”
Isaiah 61 v 1.
Who are the meek? They are those who are prepared to listen to what Yah has to say in His Torah and his scriptures, not to their own petty godships.
Who are the Brokenhearted? They are those who understand that their link to Yah has been severed and who seek its restoration (hear Oh Israel, thou shalt love Yahovah with ALL THY HEART).
Who are those captives in prison? Those who understand that this physical world is the sham and that Yah’s spiritual realm is the reality, they who understand that their physical senses are bonds which chain them in the prison of the physical….
Come out of her Oh my people!
