Chapter 1 WHERE IS THE SOUL?

Gen. 2:7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

God did not breathe into Adam’s mouth that His Spirit went down into the lungs, or into the belly, but God breathed into Adam’s nostrils, into His head, entering into the mind of man, creating the mind of Man in God’s image, a living soul. Therefore is the soul housed in the mind, the life of man in the mind, and life or death, abiding in the mind, for when a man is considered medically to be ‘brain dead', he is considered, dead, whether his heart is beating, or whether all the organs and the totality of the rest of his body be in abundant health, when the spirit of the mind is dead, the body may be alive, but the soul is dead, and is gone from the body. And when all life support is withdrawn from the body that is keeping it ‘alive’ in man’s terms of living, forces outside the body keeping the body functioning, when these things are taken away and withdrawn, the body quickly enters into its death for the spirit of life, the soul, has already departed the body. Life is in the Spirit, and the flesh profits nothing, and has no power in its own self to sustain life once the soul has left the body.

The mind therefore, is where the Spirit dwells. The Apostle Paul said . . . .Rom. 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Gen. 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. 2:16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: 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. 18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. . . . . . . .21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; 22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. 23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. 24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. 25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

Let us reach forward now after the disobedience. . . . .Gen. 3:7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons. 8 And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden. 9 And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou? 10 And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself. 11 And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat? . . . . . .21 Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them.

ADAM, WHERE ARE YOU?
Words & Music By Martha ©

You thought you were gettin’ by
Runnin’ from the LORD
You thought a little sin didn’t matter
But GOD’s been keeping score
Where you gonna’ hide your sin
When the voice of GOD starts callin’?
There ain’t no fig leaf big enough
To hide your shame

Adam, Adam, where are you?
Why are you hidin’ from me?
Adam, Adam, where are you?
There ain’t no fig leaf big enough
To hide your shame
There ain’t no one else here
To take the blame
Where are you?

You can’t blame the woman GOD gave you
She’s gonna’ tell on you
The devil is a witness, too
And GOD is calling on you
Where you gonna’ hide your face
When the eyes of GOD start lookin’?
There just ain’t any way to hide
This thing you have done

Adam, Adam, where are you?
Why are you hidin’ from me?
Adam, Adam, where are you?
There ain’t no fig leaf big enough
To hide your shame
There ain’t no one else here
To take the blame
Where are you?

Adam and Eve were trying to hide their shame. When a woman is raped, she is known to get into the shower or into water to wash and wash and cleanse herself, being tormented of her uncleanness, not from guilt, for a woman raped is guiltless, yet she is trying to wash and wash and get rid of the horrible filthy feelings, and trying to wash away the filth that has touched her flesh. To no avail, for it is not possible to wash away with water and soap the defilement she feels. It is unwashable. It is unhealable. For satan’s spirit has defiled her spirit and there is no way to wash her mind, to wash her heart, nor to wash her very flesh from the horrors she has just experienced. Her soul has been raped. Not only has her body been defiled by the raping, but her soul has been raped. Satan literally joined his own spirit with her soul and spirit, and entered into her most holy of holies, her soul.

When a young boy is assaulted and raped by a man or another boy, he goes through this same unbearable pain to wash and wash and for hours and hours, wash and wash. It is unbearable, this defiling of the soul. There is no healing and no balm and nowhere to go to receive peace to the soul that has been torn in pieces by this savagery. And what can be said for little children who have been so helplessly accosted, abused, raped, molested and tormented in like fashion? And in the rights of freedom, nakednesses of women and men and young boys and girls in all manners of displays infiltrate holy souls and holy minds in an instant of a second, and in the name of rights and freedoms of expression and speech, and censorship, the wicked cry their rights to defile souls created into the image of God? The tree of the knowledge of good and evil is alive and well and bearing his fruits everywhere and in every nation and tongue and people, planting his roots firmly and growing stronger and stronger every day, spreading his branches wide and broad and high.

For it is still written. Gen. 3:23 Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. 24 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.

Chapter 2 THE IMAGES

God created man, male and female created God, in His image.

Gen. 5:2 Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.

Now, the image of God is male and female, and male and female as One Adam, or one creation, or one image. And they join flesh, and they create a male or a female from one male and one female, creating their image, begatting their images, both male and female, the male sperm uniting with the female egg, begatting a living soul. Now, the image of God is not male and male, which is an abomination, nor is the image of God female and female, which is also an abomination. These defile God. These desecrate God. It is written concerning those who forget God or who will not retain in their minds and souls who and what God is and what God’s image is, it being both male and female, joining as one flesh.

Rom. 1:19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 20 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: 21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. 24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. 28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; 29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: 32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

Homosexuals and lesbians are filled with . . . . . .29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful.

The image of God therefore in flesh, is both male and female, being righteous in their bodies, and in their minds, and in their souls, and in their hearts. Seeing as the mind is the stomach of the soul, and the soul dwells in the mind, if that soul, that mind, is filled with all manners of wickednesses, shall it see the face of God after death, or the face of damnation?

Rom. 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness. Let it be known with all sobriety of mind and soul, that the unrighteous shall not inherit the Kingdom of God.

No homosexual, nor lesbian shall inhabit eternity with the children of God, the images of God. Hear again and see again the soul of the homosexual and the lesbian. . . . .

29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful.

2nd Cor. 3:18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord. 2nd Cor. 4:3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: 4 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.

The image of God, Christ Jesus, is hidden to those who are perishing, for the god of this world has blinded their minds and destroyed their souls in unbelief, they having cast aside their knowledge of God, exchanging it for the worshipping of the lusts of the created. Understand again, and hear again, and see again, the soul and the minds of the lovers of their own kinds. . . . .29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful.

Can this mind therefore be reasoned with? Can this mind therefore be compromised with? Can this mind therefore have any understanding concerning righteousness? God shall redeem those in the image of righteousness, that they perish not, and God shall damn those in the image of unrighteousness.

The image of God is righteousness, and God created man in His image, both male and female created He them, and they at their creation were created in the image of God, righteous. God shall return to the earth to resurrect all the dead, and to translate the living, and those in His image shall He take unto Himself, and forever shall they abide with God, but the wicked, those not in His image, shall be damned and shall burn in the lake of fire, and this damnation too, is forever. No homosexual or lesbian shall have their names written in the Lamb’s book of Life.

Rev. 20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. . . . . . .15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. And do not these reprobates say, God made them that way. What is written? . . . . .Rom. 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind. And so God did do it. It is their judgment for despising Him. It is their judgment for despising His image and His commandments of righteousness. God did turn them over to their own damnations. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of an angry, living God, as written.
