2010.02.14. The Word of God 1 on the Sunday of Adam’s expulsion from paradise 2 Oh, I long after My love in man and My longing is long and hard. I am the One Who built the man out of My love to make him then the house of My love and to have rest in him, for love is hard and it needs rest. Before the man was, My love was, the love from God, and I made the man out of it, and then I made him out of dust in order to be the house of My love and so that I may look at it and have rest in it then from the hardship of My love, for God is big and He needs rest. I am coming as word into My book during these days, and I am finding it open and I am coming in and speaking for My beginning with the man. I am the Word of God and I was the Word at the beginning, as I am now, in the end, and everything has been made by My spoken word, and nothing was made without Me, for only God is the One Who works, only He. I am Who I am and I am the One Who does, and I did and I do everything out of love, for I am love, and My wound has been deep after I made the man, for I have not been able to rest with My love in him. I made him to have rest with My great and hard love and to look at it face to face with it, and I said that it was well, and since then I have been only sufferance. I was speaking the word of creation and then I was looking and seeing that it was good and then I looked over everything I made, and the heaven, the earth and their whole armies were very good, and on the seventh day I rested from all the creation that I made. The man knew only the good, as this is what I meant for him and in this way I loved him so much, and I wanted that he might not know the evil, and that the evil might not know the man either, and that is why I told him to keep away from evil and to work the good, to be happy and to be immortal. Only the one who knows evil, only that one is mortal, because I told Adam: «You shall not eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil; for in the day that you eat of it you will surely die». (Gen: 2/17) Oh, the man did not listen not to touch those that were God’s good things, those that only God had to know, to keep under control and to protect the man from tempting God; how- ever, man wanted to tempt God’s being and so he did, and then he saw his fall and was afraid of God and wanted to hide. However, I was walking and speaking over him and when I called him to answer Me where he hid, he died, he died to Me, for he who knows like God longs after himself and not after God and he does no longer have God to be great upon him, because he hides from Him, as Adam did. He, who hides, hides because of the evil in him, and men blame each other and from one another before God, as it was in the beginning and after man knew evil and thus becoming sin in man, that is God’s death in man. Oh, what great love for the man’s redemption from sin had those who established the opening of the man’s sight and days of long fast, after he sees his fall from life by the awakening of the evil in him! The saints and the fathers have established fifty days of fast for the faithful ones (See the selection topic: „About fasting and almsgiving”, r.n.) and they gave the example of Adam’s expulsion from paradise, so that man may have power of repentance and longing after the paradise, for the paradise was on earth and it is still on the earth now, and it is covered within mystery and it has the sword of the invisible fire within its gate. 1 2 God’s Word in „Holy Citadel New Jerusalem” monastery, Glodeni – Romania, redactor note.
