In the Beginning God created Man, after his own image and likeness( Gen. 1:26-27) God who is Spirit, created Man after his own image and Likeness, In essence God was replicating himself, God's intention was for this created being to rule over the works of his Hands, Gen 1:26. Now this created being who was also a spiritual being, needed a body to carry out the assignment of the Spirit, in accordance with God's will (Gen 1:26), hence God molded and shaped a form from the dust of the Earth, then He breathed his breath of Life (Zoe- in Greek means that which makes Gods) into he Body and it became a living soul He named this form "ADAM" . The name of the body was Adam, while the name of the Spirit being was "Man"
In (Gen 1:27) God had created "Man" with both attributes of Male and Female qualities, thus God being the possessor of the said attributes, which he placed also in 'Man'. Subsequently God duplicated the Spirit Man, when He put him to sleep and took a "RIB" an expression used to indicate a part of the Spirit man. ( Spirit Man does not have ribs, only the Physical Body carries ribs) God subsequently formed Adam's help meet from the "rib" and called her "EVE" meaning mother of Creation.
God had in reality created other Gods like himself, (Psalm 82:6) He then proceeded to give them charge in (Gen1:26) He also gave them the power of choice, Hence God gave them Free will, just as God himself has free will, there was no restriction except one. " Do not eat of the tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil." for in that day should you eat, you shall surely die.( meaning to lose Spiritual contact with God, to be separated from God) The question many have not asked, is what is this knowledge that God was referring to, well the actions of Adam & Eve gives us an indication of that knowledge. (Gen 3:1-7) Their partaking of this knowledge cause them to become aware of their bodies, but not just aware, but that awareness led them to feel naked, hence they sewed fig leaves and made themselves aprons, now their upper body parts were still exposed, but that seemed to be no issue with them, just where the "aprons' were covering, that is that part of their body that was used in the partaking of this peculiar knowledge.
Hence the covering up of that which was used in their mis-adventure. If someone was caught eating the cookies from the cooky jar, they would cover their mouth to hide any evidence (residue) that would incriminate their behavior. Now in ( Gen.3:6 ) when the "woman" a spiritual being still connected to God as God, saw the "Tree" , that it was good for food. Now God has referred to us a Trees in many areas of his word, (Psalm 1:3) is one example,"He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water" Christ also said the "By their fruits you shall know them" Trees bear fruits also.
When "Man/woman" chose to disobey God, and became reckless with their Spiritual responsibility, there was a consequence to their decision and action, it caused them to lose their Spiritual consciousness, and that was replaced by their physical consciousness, or Carnal consciousness.
Hence since the fall of "man" from the consciousness of his spiritual nature, he became disconnected, and lost the power and Glory, he once experienced when they were walking in accrodance with the will and oneness of God their creator. This is why it is known as the fall of "man"
Since this peculiar event in eternity past, all mankind thereafter born of a woman, via the process of Carnality, have been disconnected from their true identity. "All have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God" the very words of the Christ. (Rom. 3:23) Since then to present day, every human being on this planet identifies with their "BODY" as their being. But this is not really so, for we are Spiritual Beings created in the Image and likeness of the Creator God . The human race has a serious problem, called an "Identity crisis". Many say they are a child of God, but would stop short of saying that they are a God. Now Sheep produce young sheep (Lambs) Pigs produce piglets, an apple tree produces apples, that carries within seeds that will become apple trees. God produced beings called "Man" who are his children, hence they must also be gods. (Psalm 82:6)
When we come to the consciousness of the God presence in us, or the Christ presence, does not make a difference, since Christ being the True Son of God, is also God, for when you behold the Christ, you behold God, for The Father is in Christ and Christ is in the Father, together they are one. (John 10:30) We also will boldly declare that "Iam God, God I am" with the understanding the you are a spiritual Being, walking around in a Body, so that your Spiritual assignment can be carried out by using the body,which is your vehicle, or the house for the Spirit, or the container for the God Presence (The I AM Presence within the body) Though we are many we are all one Spirit in God (Ephesians 4:4-6). In all our getting we are encouraged to get understanding. The understanding that we are Spiritual beings, is liberating and empowering. This understanding frees us up from a lot of stigmas and labels that have attached itself to our minds. Now the Mind is that mirror within, that reflects what we attach ourselves to. Since "Man" became disconnected from his true nature, the mind has convinced itself that the body is what it is, and so the being of "man" relates to everything through the spectrum of the Body, hence our minds have become carnal, or flesh conscious..
When "Man" chose to walk away from Spirit, by choosing to walk after the flesh, The mind which is meant to be the servant of the Spirit, and the Body be the servant of the mind, so that the will of God would be made perfect in Mans obedience, instead :Man: lost their Dominion as a Spirit being, and the mind has become a slave to the body, where the body dictates and the behavior of man no longer reflects the nature of God, but rather the nature of flesh. Such as Fear, Anger, Envy, Jealousy, Hatred, Lies, deceitfullness, Thinking out of Lack, covetousness, murder, war, impatience, faithlessness and so forth, you can add to this list of maladies. But when "Man" walks after the Spirit, which reflects the nature of God, Man will Love, be Peaceful, Kind, compassionate, doing good for the benefit of others, for He will also see God in others, Patient, long suffering, forgiveness, Spread Joy, Speak well of others, Faithful and be of a good report. See Fruits of the Spirit (Gal. 5:22-23)
