Each human being has a solar plexus which is in the middle of the chest just above the stomach. When an embryo is in the womb, the first part to be formed is the solar plexus. It is the receptacle for the human spirit which enters at conception and proceeds to direct the process of human development. As the fetus develops, the spirit transmits into the solar plexus the memory of Eden that all human spirits have, because they all are descended from Adam and Eve.
The memory of Eden is a memory of an idyllic life in which the forces of hell are kept at a distance, and humans have an opportunity to explore their humanity without consequences. They can make mistakes as they grow and develop, and they have the opportunity to erase those mistakes as if they never existed, and recreate the excised portions.
When Satan tempted Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, he gave them a half truth--that they could know good and evil. However, they already knew good and evil because they had the wisdom of God and were obedient to spiritual laws. The difference is that they did not suffer consequences. Thus, he promised to give them what they already had. In accepting Satan's gift, they were required to also accept his consequences. The most cruel and cunning exchange is one in which you sell someone something that already belongs to them, secretly knowing that your sale price, though handsomely presented, is death in disguise. Imagine giving your life to purchase something that you did not realize you already owned.
Satan tried to convince Jesus to enter into the same contract. He promised to give Jesus a kingdom if he would bow down and worship him. Jesus knew that God already had promised him a kingdom, so he promptly refused Satan's gift. History does not have to repeat itself if we take note of its lessons. History's purpose is to warn so that we do not need to repeat the mistakes of the past.
Satan is having far more success selling the same stolen goods to modern humans than he did with Jesus, and the price tag is just as high. He tells them that if they bow down and worship him, he will give them eternal life. They know that they already have a promise of eternal life from God. However, he tells them that his "gift" is free in that no obedience to spiritual principles is necessary. You can lie, murder and steal and be subject to rampant greed, yet still have eternal life. You can betray every friendship and still have eternal life. And ultimately, you can live a life of debauchery, addiction and immorality and yet have eternal life.
The earth is groaning in pain under the weight of sin, and many cannot imagine it surviving intact for much longer, if the current circumstances continue. Yet Satan has convinced them to accept an eternity living under the same or worse conditions than currently exist on the earth. If you genuinely want eternal life, be sure to examine the fine print of the contract prior to signing it. If it tries to offer you something that God already has freely given you, beware. If it states that the reward is freedom from God, beware. If it indicates that you can have more than God has offered, beware. Your solar plexus knows the truth about the Garden of Eden. It knows that the only eternal contract that is worth having is the one that comes from the God of creation, El Elohim.
