At the apex of time, the first man, Adam and woman, Eve did not believe EVERY word of God.
“The LORD God commanded the man, saying, of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou [SHALT SURELY DIE]” (Genesis 2:16–17).
“And the serpent said unto the woman, ‘Ye [SHALL NOT SURELY DIE]’” (Genesis 3:4).
Here is the deception: the “crooked serpent” (Job 26:10), the devil, aka Satan stated correctly to Eve, “Yea, hath God said, ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?” However, the statement “YE SHALL NOT SURELY DIE” was not what God told Adam.
These words were a LIE!
GOD DOES NOT LIE: The word of God is TRUTH FOREVER!
“[GOD IS NOT A MAN, THAT HE SHOULD LIE; NEITHER] the Son of man, [THAT HE SHOULD REPENT]” (Numbers 23:19).
“And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to [REPENT]: Because he hath [APPOINTED A DAY], in the which he will judge the world in [RIGHTEOUSNESS] by that man whom he hath ordained; [WHEREOF HE HATH GIVEN ASSURANCE UNTO ALL MEN, IN THAT HE HATH RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD]” (Acts 17:30-31).
“He that believeth on the son of god hath the witness in himself: [HE THAT BELIEVETH NOT GOD HATH MADE HIM A LIAR]; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.
[AND THIS IS THE RECORD, THAT GOD HATH GIVEN TO US ETERNAL LIFE, AND THIS LIFE IS IN HIS SON]” (1 John 5:10-11).
“That whosoever [BELIEVETH IN HIM] should [NOT PERISH], [BUT HAVE ETERNAL LIFE]” (John 3:15)
“For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming” (1 Corinthians 15:21-23).
JESUS CHRIST, the only begotten Son of God says: “I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live; and whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die” (John 11:25–26).
“[I AM HE THAT LIVETH, AND WAS DEAD; AND, BEHOLD, I AM ALIVE FOR EVERMORE], Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death” (Revelation 1:18).
“Behold, he cometh with clouds; and [EVERY EYE SHALL SEE HIM], and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen” (Revelation 1:8).
