Adam didn’t fall.
Math.17: 2 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light….
Now this transfiguration was the display of the garment of the priestly office. It was the Body of glory, the kind of Body Adam had before the fall. We can rightly say, Adam fell from a paradise state into the realm of carnality. He allowed the wrong voice to communicate to him through the wife and so lost the glory. When I used the word, Adam allowed, it is deliberate because there was no way Adam could have been made Adam fall. The word is clear..
John.1: 5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
The word comprehend which is katalambano, means ‘to take eagerly, i.e. seize, possess, etc. ,apprehend, attain, come upon, comprehend, find, obtain, perceive, (over-)take.
So the Amplify will say.. John 1:5 And the Light shines on in the darkness, for the darkness has never overpowered it [put it out or absorbed it or appropriated it, and is unreceptive to it]. AMP.
Meaning as long as Adam was living in the light, there was no way he could have fallen to the voice of the serpent. Just like the serpent tried it on Jesus “Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me”.( John 14:30).
What was the devil going to do to Jesus, he was to question the authority of his sonship and what he knows about himself as a son of God.
Look at the way he worked on Eve.. “ …And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?”Gen.3:1).
Can you not see that it was a question? Hath God said? It’s like saying ‘are you sure? Do you believe what God said about you?. So to Jesus is like asking him, are you truly sure you are the son of God even though you have heard him say so to you? What evidence do you have to prove that you are the son of God? etc etc
These are the very questions that confront us every day. Do you think this Christianity of a thing is real? Is there truly any benefit in worshipping God? Is Jesus truly God in the flesh? What do you stand to gain being a Christian? If you think you are a son of God why are you not performing miracles etc etc. All these accusations in our minds are aimed at nothing but our sonship in God. That’s how the devil talks to us.
But how do we overcome? by simply replying back with the word by saying .I am a son of God because the word says so, I don’t need any evidence to prove that not even a miracle.
Now this is where the light you have in Christ takes effect, for the darkness, which is ignorance produced by the accuser in our hearts cannot comprehend the light.
I mentioned that Adam was not deceived and so didn’t fall . How do I know that, because the word says so.
“And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.” (1Tim.2: 14)
So how did Adam fall? He gave himself willingly to it because Eve the wife has fallen.
Now there is a major ministry to this fall of Adam here, also that we need to understand. After all Pual’s admonition concerning the husband and the wife,(marriage) he ended up by saying it is a ‘mystery’ “This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church”.Eph.5: 32.
What then is this mystery of the marriage of the church and Christ; it’s that if Adam has not willingly given himself to the fall by following the woman that was deceived, Christ would not have died for the church, the redeemed sinful humanity.Becasue Adam died in flowing the sin of Eve, Christ have to die that through death man, the wife of Christ, the church would be redeemed.
Therefore, the light body that Jesus demonstrated at the time of the transfiguration was a revelation of immortality
This is why we are told in Lev.8: 35 at the consecration of Aaron’s sons into priesthood that
“Therefore shall ye abide at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation day and night seven days, and keep the charge of the LORD, that ye die not: for so I am commanded”.
Now Peter got that revelation too hence he requested of Jesus.. “…Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias”.(Math.17:4).
You know what he was saying? Master, we can stay on here and enjoy immortality as represented by the feast of tabernacles, just as Aaron’s son were supposed to stay in the tabernacle and never die. No more going down to the earthly realm from the spirit dimension of glorified sons, to manifest immortal light Bodies.
In Luke’s account (Luke 9:33) it was added to the request of Peter “not knowing what he said”. So why did Peter not know what he said? Because he was trying to structure that which is future from the time they were. Jesus has not even gone to the cross yet and he wants to manifest immortality. This was the very reason that God has to drive out man from the Garden less he partake of the tree of life and live forever, meaning if man has eaten of the tree of life after he has eaten that of the knowledge of God and Evil, he would have immortalized death, so it was for man’s good that he was driven from the Garden.
Adam fall was a willful submission to death so Christ can submit to the death of the cross for the redemption of mankind, the church. For darkness cannot comprehend the light that we carry even now. “The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light”. Math 6:22.
So don’t doubt your faith or calling. Stay with what God says about you. Know firstly, you are a born from above son of God., you maybe a nepios, (an infant) now, but you are a son coming to maturity ultimately ..
