Ive appreciated a lot of your posts, I have a question for you if you dont mind?
Was God tricked by Satan when he got Adam and Eve to sin?
This is explained in the Lost Books of Adam and Eve. God had a plan. First, the end of the plan:
4 And God created that sea of his own good pleasure, for He knew what would come of the man He would make; so that after he had left the garden, on
account of his transgression, men should be born in the earth. Among them are righteous ones who will die, whose souls God would raise at the last
day; when all of them will return to their flesh, bathe in the water of that sea, and repent of their sins.
Second, the nature of the legal matter of the fruit:
16 Then, concerning the tree, I commanded you not to eat of it. Yet I knew that Satan, who deceived himself, would also deceive you. 17 So I made
known to you by means of the tree, not to come near him. And I told you not to eat of the fruit thereof, nor to taste of it, nor yet to sit under it,
nor to yield to it. 18 Had I not been and spoken to you, O Adam, concerning the tree, and had I left you without a commandment, and you had sinned --
it would have been an offence on My part, for not having given you any order; you would turn around and blame Me for it. 19 But I commanded you, and
warned you, and you fell. So that My creatures cannot blame Me; but the blame rests on them alone. 20 And, O Adam, I have made the day so that you and
your descendants can work and toil in it. And I have made the night for them to rest in it from their work; and for the beasts of the field to go
forth by night and look for their food. 21 But little of darkness now remains, O Adam, and daylight will soon appear."
Third, there is a plan.
1 God said to Adam, "I have ordained on this earth days and years, and you and your descendants shall live and walk in them, until the days and years
are fulfilled; when I shall send the Word that created you, and against which you have transgressed, the Word that made you come out of the garden,
and that raised you when you were fallen. 2 Yes, the Word that will again save you when the five and a half days are fulfilled." 3 But when Adam heard
these words from God, and of the great five and a half days, he did not understand the meaning of them. 4 For Adam was thinking there would be only
five and a half days for him until the end of the world. 5 And Adam cried, and prayed to God to explain it to him. 6 Then God in his mercy for Adam
who was made after His own image and likeness, explained to him, that these were 5,000 and 500 years; and how One would then come and save him and his
450 years later, God delivered a judgment to Enoch that the Watchers would be judged in 70 generations. A generation is the precession of the Earth
divided by 360. That's 5055 years. Enoch was taken at around 950 past Adam. Today, the 5500 years is up.
