Why I prefer the Devil! (It’s not what you think) Pt.1

It is said that nature works in pairs. Most things have their counterpart e.g light and dark, male and female, positive and negative, god and the devil. These two equal but opposite forces have battled ferociously throughout the ages. Perhaps this balance is best described in the Chinese Yin/Yang symbol, which shows even though two parts may be opposite they still have a little of one in the other. For example males and females both have oestrogen and testosterone, but at different levels.

Since I was young I was given this god and the devil concept. I remember my house girl in Nigeria once singing UP UP Jesus, Down down Satan! I went to a All boys Cat-Holic school founded by the man who started the Illuminati ‘St.Ignatius’. I was forced to go to church by my parents who though they were doing the best thing for me, (raise your child in the way of the lord and they will not depart from you.) I generally believed that God loved me and was looking over me. Until I had some experiences at university which made me question this……………!

After a thorough weekend of brainstorming I came to a conclusion that there was no God! And shortly after that, my housemate introduced me to some things which made me confirm that idea. I have been introduced to higher learning, different things, what can be described as universal and spiritual science. Nothing can beat that! This has been one of the most delightful experiences of my life, one I look back at with joy, and try and constantly improve. But during my quest for the truth I was to uncover probably one of the greatest secrets that were never revealed to man!

What if the devil was good and God was bad!

Some of you may decide to stop reading at this point and fair play.! Go back to Church and pray for me! You belong there. But seriously what if? Have you ever given that thought. Don’t worry I’m not a Satanist. I don’t pray to the devil and his hosts, and I don’t do demonic rituals and consult witches, and warlocks like Harry Potter. I don’t play quizzes with Damien and I haven’t sold my soul to the Devil like Homer Simpson. Nor am I part of the Church of Satan started by Anton Levy in 1966!

To explain my point, I would like to take you back to the start in the glorious garden of Eden, a wonderful time of bliss, pure unadulterated good times, where you could laze around all day, eating fruit and sunbathing like hedonists on a tropical island.

Remember the story of the forbidden fruit? God said to Adam and Eve in Genesis 2:17 “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.” Pay close to attention to day and die. Now we all know a day is 24 hours for those of you who aren’t stoned, and well die means die, right… Stop breathing, cease to exist, buried, go to heaven or hell, which some of you people would do anything to avoid right?

A day is described in Genesis 1:5. “And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.”

So basically you can eat any tree apart from that one in the corner, you know the one where the sun don’t shine, or you’ll dead! Right?

So then comes the serpent, who just happens to be the most cunning beast of the field that God made. This serpent just happened to have a voice box, you know a trachea which we humans use to talk. Not only that he spoke to Eve in tongues, I mean Gibberish, no sorry Akkadian or Ugaric which the Ancient Sumerians spoke at that time. He went straight to the woman who was naked (I don’t blame him!) and said in genesis 3:1, Did God say you can eat of every tree of the Garden?” Eve replied yeah, that’s right. We can eat of every tree apart from that one in the corner, you know the one where the sun don’t shine.”

The serpent replied, “Oh really. You won’t die. God knows that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

Now Eve, be-lie-Eve’d him or believed him because she saw that the tree was actually good for food, pleasant to the eyes and would make her wise. She ate it and convinced Adam to eat it, cuz well, maybe the bible left out the part of her nagging continuously. But listen to what happens after. ‘And the eyes of them both were opened, they knew they were naked. Then Zeus, I mean God came along and asked them where are you? Maybe he had his sunglasses on but I thought he would know, being God and all dat, you know the one who made the heavens and the Earth! He asked them? Did you eat the tree? Yes, said Adam? Why? Because Eve made me! (Guess that’s why some of us bruddas blame our women. …!)

She said, “the serpent, the most cunning animal who you left us alone with tricked me.” So because of this God cursed the serpent, made snakes and humans hate each other, as well as curse women to have pain in childbirth and submit to men. Then he cursed man to work a 9-5 until he sweats and becomes depressed, or drinks his life away, or ends up robbing banks and doing 419 just to put food on the table. What a loving and wonderful God!

But listen to what happens next. Gen 3:22. And the Lord God said, ‘The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. So he drove them from the Garden of Eden and said get to work suckers, you are not worthy to be in my presence.”

Now! What age did Adam die? Adam lived all the way to 930 which we see in Genesis 5:5.

So my question to you good folks is who lied? GOD OR THE DEVIL! They both have completely different sides in the story, it’s mutually exclusive. (That’s my probability class shining right there.)

Let me do a recap like I’m the motherfucker from the Saw Movies. God said, “you can eat of any fruit of the tree, apart from that one in the corner where the sun don’t shine, (I love that bit!) cuz if you do, you die that fucking day!”

Then the devil, I mean serpent, slithers along and says, “is it true god said that, cuz u wont die, God doesn’t want you to be smart. He doesn’t want you to be knowledgeable. He doesn’t even want you to know you’re naked cuz he’s got CCTV footage everywhere and he’s actually a voyeur! Now Adam and Eve both eat the tree and we know that, at least Adam didn’t die until he was 930.

So my question to you again is, WHO LIED? Before you battle with yourself and make up stories, a day is day proven in the bible. The word days Key Word Study Bible #3117 yowm means to be hot, a day, warm hours, can be sunrise to sunset or figurative.

How about die, #4191, muwth a primitive root, to die, kill, dead, body, death, destroy, necro, get the picture? And please don’t say the 1 day = 1000 years ting because that applies to God not man. As in the day YOU eat it.

Do you see the part where the eye shall be opened. What if I told you it was the third eye. Would you have any idea what this meant? I’ll give you a clue. The eye opening is symbolic of the third eye, your inner soul which can learn the greater mysteries. Where you can perceive other planes of existence. Its symbolic of the brow seat or chakra, near the pituitary gland. Theres more, but I’ll leave that to digest with you for now!

It’s obvious to me who lied. I’m not gona tell you cuz u won’t be-lie-eve me and you’ll battle me or cuss me but based on this scenario and all the variables, I think it’s safe to say the DEVIL was the more honourable man here. Read on to part 2 if you dare!
