1 Presents Compiled and Illustrated from The Scriptures & The Spirit of Prophecy December 2013 The Great Controversy Between The Christ and The Adversary (Part 6-A)

2 For we read from the writings of Ellen G. White that… In part (5), we saw that man was made to have dominion over the creatures of the sea, land and air, and have dominion over all the earth, which is the habitation of systems in both the kingdom of plants and animals, which minister one to another, in a system of planets that revolve around the light and warmth of the sun, which ministers to the ecosystem of the earth.

3 “No bird that cleaves the air, no animal that moves upon the ground, but ministers to some other life. There is no leaf of the forest, or lowly blade of grass, but has its ministry. Every tree and shrub and leaf pours forth that element of life without which neither man nor animal could live; and man and animal, in turn, minister to the life of tree and shrub and leaf. The flowers breathe fragrance and unfold their beauty in blessing to the world. The sun sheds its light to gladden a thousand worlds. The ocean, itself the source of all our springs and fountains, receives the streams from every land, but takes to give. The mists ascending from its bosom fall in showers to water the earth, that it may bring forth and bud” (The Desire of Ages, Page 20, 21).

4 In part (5), we also saw that man was made in The Image of God to reflect and reveal The Glory of GOD. Just as Christ, Who is of GOD, and is The Expressed Image of The Father’s Glory, in shining from Him--Light to gladden more than a thousand worlds; man was made to reflect and reveal through him The Glory of GOD, as The Spirit of Christ shines in and from man, who is made to reflect His Image in revealing GOD’S Glory. For The Treasures of The Light of The Knowledge of The Glory of GOD is revealed to all by The Light of GOD’S Word. For The Treasures of The Light of The Knowledge of The Glory of GOD is revealed to all by The Light of GOD’S Word.

5 To reflect The Image of The Son of GOD by His Spirit. To reflect The Image of The Son of GOD by His Spirit. With all the systems in place for man to physically reproduce like a cell after his own kind, man was made to reproduce after GOD’S Image, by The Spirit and Power of HIS Word abiding in the highest form of dust, to reproduce and reflect GOD’S Image in man. Male Female To be children But The Image that GOD made man to reflect is The Image of HIS Son, Who is The Expressed Image of HIS Glory. But like a cancer in the body that works to take over the body; the enemy wanted man to reproduce after his kind, to be against GOD. This enemy set out to imprint his image in the mind of man. GOD is revealed by Him. The Son of GOD

6 The Glory of GOD is Expressed through Christ With Christ Spirit like the nucleus of a cell, at the center between GOD and man, His Image shines from those, who allow His Spirit to abide in them. The Way Honor Knowledge Strength Counsel His Life Treasures Righteousness Understanding Durable Riches Substance His Fruit The Truth Judgment Power Instruction Wisdom The Word of GOD His Love Mercy Joy Peace Longsuffering Gentleness Faith Meekness Temperance Virtue Patience Godliness Brotherly Kindness Charity Goodness Light Holiness Eternal Life

7 More clearly The Truth of The Godhead, as GOD is revealed by HIS Word through those, who received HIS Word. More clearly The Truth of The Godhead, as GOD is revealed by HIS Word through those, who received HIS Word. In part (6) we seek to understand For it is revealed through Paul, who said of HIS Word… Like the DNA code of a cell, which stores the patterns to be reproduce in the cells that makes up the whole body, The Word of GOD is The Source Code of GOD’S Pattern to be reproduced in all of mankind. But if the cell, or man cannot read or understand the code of GOD’S Word, then man cannot reflect, or reproduce the correct Image of GOD’S Word within themselves.

8 “…that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed [it] unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, [even] his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse” (Romans 1:19, 20). “But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake” (2 Corinthians 4:3-5).

9 From what we know of man’s form and structure, which GOD created to reflect HIS Image; did HE by HIS Word make man to have a brain with… When GOD said “Let us”, was HE speaking, or communicating with two other Divine Beings, or was HE communicating to HIS Only Begotten Son? Or Three Cerebral Hemispheres? Three Cerebral Hemispheres? Two Cerebral Hemispheres? Two Cerebral Hemispheres?

10 When we look at the image of a normal healthy person, the body does not have three heads, but one head, which controls the functions of the whole body. Through HIS servant Isaiah, The Word revealed what The Father said to Him in the very beginning… The head does not have three eyes, but two by which the body is directed by the brain to interact with its’ environment. The head does not have three noses, but one with two nostrils by which the body receives fresh oxygen into both lungs, to help the body produce the energy it needs. And the head does not have three ears, or three mouths, but two ears to hear, and one mouth to speak with the voice, to communicate the will of the brain.

11 “…I have put my words in thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou [art] my people” (Isaiah 51:16).

12 And through His servant Moses, The Word of GOD spoke to the children of Israel of The Will of GOD. who testified of GOD by who testified of GOD by GOD revealed HIMSELF by HIS Son He spoke to the children of Israel of The Will of GOD. He spoke to the children of Israel of The Will of GOD. to and through The Father said by HIS Word to Moses, to speak to the children of Israel, saying… The Power of GOD Moses

13 “Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared. Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my name [is] in him. But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries. For mine Angel shall go before thee, and bring thee in unto the Amorites, and the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Canaanites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites: and I will cut them off” (Exodus 23:20-23).

14 “Thou shalt not bow down to their gods, nor serve them, nor do after their works: but thou shalt utterly overthrow them, and quite break down their images. And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee. There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in thy land: the number of thy days I will fulfil” (Exodus 23:24-26).

15 Notice that by obeying The Voice of GOD’S Angel--The Word of GOD, Who was leading them, as a body in The Way of GOD, they were to break down the images of the false gods, to live by The Image of The Only True GOD. The same battle takes place in the cells of the body. By following the DNA genetic code, which is written in the cell, to keep the cells in the way of reproducing correctly; the DNA code would help to prevent the cells from following the codes that leads to transgression, and cause cancer to spread within the body. For by transgressing the correct code that maintains life, the wrong image would work to spread the code of corruption and bring an end to the way of life. It is for this reason that Moses testified of The Word of GOD, Who spoke to Adam, saying…

16 “And 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).

17 But like a cancer that was invading the whole heavens, by spreading darkness upon the face of the deep, the enemy led man to transgress The Law of Light and Life found in GOD’S Word, to bring darkness and death to the image of man. By eating of the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil, the seed of the enemy’s wrong image of GOD and HIS Word was implanted in the heart of man, to cause man to bear fruit in sinning against GOD and his fellowman. When we look at the growth of a tree from a seed to it’s many branches that bear fruit, the growth is similar to that of man. And by being in darkness to the cause of the suffering in this world, men continue to transgress against the code of life between GOD and man, just as cancer cells spread throughout the body without regard to the life of the cell.

18 The growth of a single seed when planted in the earth, grows to bear fruit on many branches. As a tree grows from a seed, to a tree that bears leaves and fruit, so likewise, man also grows from a seed to bear fruit. The seed in the earth The forming of the stem and roots The forming of the stem and roots The full tree without leaves, or fruit

19 When the growth of a single seed of the man is planted in the egg in the womb of the female, the embryo grows with many nerve branches, that connects the systems of the body to the spinal cord, which is connect to the brain of the body, to bear good fruit. The womb of the female is not the only place that receives the seed of reproduction. For it is written that... The male seed The male seed The brain, spinal cord and nervous system The brain and The spinal cord The brain and The spinal cord

20 “Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower. When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth [it] not, then cometh the wicked [one], and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side. But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it; Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended. He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful” (Matthew 13:18-22).

21 “But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth [it]; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares? He said unto them, An enemy hath done this…” (Matthew 13:23-28).

22 The Spiritual tree of the enemy evil and good The Spiritual tree of the enemy evil and good knowledge evil powers good riches beauty understanding brightness fruit treasures unrighteousness evil ways darkness death perverseness wickedness destruction corruption On one side, this angel reflects the goodness of The Son. But on the other side, he cast an image, which is contrary to GOD’S Will.

23 When GOD made man, he was connected to GOD by The Spirit and Power of HIS Living Word, to reflect and reveal GOD’S Image from the heart of man. By causing the death of man, or man’s rejection of The Light and Life of GOD by HIS Word, the enemy caused man to sever his ongoing relationship with GOD, by HIS Word. But being led to accept the fruit of the enemy, as being good for food, and pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, the woman took of his fruit and did eat, and gave also to her husband to eat. And because of the false image of GOD that was planted by the enemy in the heart of man, in his ongoing Light and Life with GOD, man was led to turn against GOD and his own flesh and blood, to bring darkness and death upon man. The same work of deception was being used against the children of Israel, to reject GOD and HIS Son. To those, who were like cancer cells rejecting Jesus, as The Son of GOD, Jesus said...

24 “I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father. They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham. But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham. Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, [even] God. Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.” (John 8:38-42).

25 “Why do ye not understand my speech? [even] because ye cannot hear my word. Ye are of [your] father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell [you] the truth, ye believe me not” (John 8:43-45).

26 As cells that make up the different systems, or the different organs of the body of Christ, we are members one of another. And when men do not see this as the case, they are blind to the code of life, to co-labor with the enemy, to destroy each other without regard for The Life of GOD that is given to man, who is made in HIS Image. Yet, men and women, who suffer from this disease, they do not desire to lose their members, or the parts of their bodies that have lost the rule of law. But to prevent death to the body, they submit to having that part of the body removed, that the rest of the body might be restore to health. But many are led to continue feeding the healthy cells the same diet that fed the cancer that was removed. Cancer is defined as a disease in which certain cells grow wild and spread throughout the body. It is a growth--a tumor, which is made up of such cells, which grow without regard to the life and health of the body, to kill the body. Its’ law is “Do as you please”. With the wrong image spreading over the earth, GOD cleansed the earth of sin by a flood. HE said by HIS Word to Noah and his sons..

27 “…surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man's brother will I require the life of man. Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.” (Genesis 9:5, 6).

28 By causing man to turn against his own flesh and blood and The Source of Light and Life in GOD and HIS Word, man was led to choose darkness and death by believing the enemy of GOD and man. The enemy deceived the woman, who led man to eat also of the lie of the enemy. And the lie of the enemy was as poison to the soul of man, to cause man to turn against GOD and HIS Word, which many still do to this day. By accepting the fruit of the enemy, as being good for food, and pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, the woman took of his fruit and did eat, and gave also to her husband to eat. And they did die. But when men are restored to GOD, by the receiving of The Code of Life, The LORD by HIS Word led His servant Ellen G. White, to write and say…

29 “God Protects Man's Rights.--How carefully God protects the rights of men! He has attached a penalty to wilful murder. "Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed." (Gen. 9:6) If one murderer were permitted to go unpunished, he would by his evil influence and cruel violence subvert others. This would result in a condition of things similar to that which existed before the Flood. God must punish murderers. He gives life, and He will take life, if that life becomes a terror and a menace (MS 126, 1901). {1BC }

30 “Satan and all who have joined him in rebellion will be cut off. Sin and sinners will perish, root and branch (Mal. 4:1)--Satan the root, and his followers the branches.... "They shall be as though they had not been." Obadiah 16. It will be seen that Satan's rebellion against God has resulted in ruin to himself, and to all that chose to become his subjects. He has represented that great good would result from transgression; but it will be seen that "the wages of sin is death." Rom. 6: An end will be made of sin, with all the woe and ruin that have resulted from it….

31 “Says the psalmist, "Thou hast destroyed the wicked, thou hast put out their name for ever and ever. O thou enemy, destructions are come to a perpetual end." Ps. 9:5, 6. He {Satan} had hoped to break up the plan of salvation; but it was laid too deep.... He himself must finally die, and his kingdom be given to Jesus. (The Faith I Live by, Page 357) “Says the psalmist, "Thou hast destroyed the wicked, thou hast put out their name for ever and ever. O thou enemy, destructions are come to a perpetual end." Ps. 9:5, 6. He {Satan} had hoped to break up the plan of salvation; but it was laid too deep.... He himself must finally die, and his kingdom be given to Jesus. (The Faith I Live by, Page 357)

32 By causing darkness and death to come upon Adam and Eve, the enemy also caused The Spirit of Light and Life of Christ in man to be cut of from the body of man. GOD, WHO give to man The Gift of Life by The Power of HIS Word, HE by HIS Word will take and punish the murderer of HIS Gift of Life to man. It was to fulfill this promise of GOD by HIS Word that He said to the serpent…

33 “…Because thou hast done this, thou [art] cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel” (Genesis 3:14, 15). End of Part 6-A
