Have you ever thought about how long it took Satan to influence the first Adam, to turn on God in rebellion, and to deceive Eve in the paradise of God? The age of innocence was lost in an instant after the taking of the forbidden fruit which was "to make one as God" and "to make one wise" knowing the difference between "good and evil." On that day, mankind's intellect fell from its spiritual understanding and eternal potential and has been falling ever since, even as worldly wisdom without the knowledge of the Holy Ones has increased. The intellect that was made to be illumined by the Spirit, now in its present fallen state, produces chaos, confusion, and every evil known to man. God's covering, lost in the garden, can only be restored through genuine repentance and faith in the finished work of Calvary: the sacrifice of the Blood of the Lamb, slain before the foundations of the earth were laid. Spiritual Intelligence and Spiritual Common Sense is based in the unadulterated Word. Evidence of man's delusion of superior intellect without the knowledge of the Holy is the deepest deception. God is not just a god of love, but of justice and righteousness with mercy, because of Christ. He is the God who judges sin, which is moral corruption in any manifested form and under any pretense of the defiant self-will.
