Book of Adam and Eve
Then Adam said unto God:
"O Lord, take Thou my soul, and let me not see this gloom any more; or remove me to some place where there is no darkness."
---I think we all ask this of God at times. What does God say to Adam in reply?
But God the Lord said to Adam, "Verly I say unto thee, this darkness will pass from thee, every day I have determined for thee, until the fulfilment
of My covenant; when I will save thee and bring thee back again into the garden, into the abode of light thou longest for, wherein is no darkness. I
will bring thee to it--in the kingdom of heaven."
Again, we get the sense there are two creations. One is paradise and the other is the image.
23 It was necessary, then, for the copies of the heavenly things to be purified with these sacrifices, but the heavenly things themselves with better
sacrifices than these. 24 For Christ did not enter a sanctuary made with human hands that was only a copy of the true one; he entered heaven itself,
now to appear for us in God’s presence. 25 Nor did he enter heaven to offer himself again and again, the way the high priest enters the Most Holy
Place every year with blood that is not his own. 26 Otherwise Christ would have had to suffer many times since the creation of the world. But he has
appeared once for all at the culmination of the ages to do away with sin by the sacrifice of himself. 27 Just as people are destined to die once, and
after that to face judgment, 28 so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to
bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.
The thing that strikes me about the aprophical book of Adam and Eve is how well it matches up to the story of the Bible. Could we have someone that
wrote this in later centuries? Sure, but whoever this was--whether they were writing it themselves or copying it from an older text--they had an
understanding that seems to answer many questions.
My own speculations--and this is all we can have no matter who we are--tells me that there is a mystery to Adam greater than we know for certain. I
am just glad for the gift of the redeemer meeting me at the end. Truth is Aleph, Mem, Tav. Aleph is the beginning. Mem is the water of baptism.
Tav is two crossed sticks and the end of the Hebrew alphabet (Omega).
He said to me: "It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of
the water of life.
Amni is the river of life.
Amnio is the bowl that catches the blood of the lamb.
Amnion is the sac covering the womb.
Amniotic Fluid are the waters of life.
Amnesia is the condition of the water.
Amnesty is the forgiveness that only God gives.
Gotta have faith in the darkness that the light will shine.
