God is omniscience, all-knowing.
He knows all that is knowable from His sovereignty and absolute authority.
We were created by God to honor and worship Him based on His sovereignty and authority.
We were created in His image to honor and worship Him.
The greatest honor that man can yield unto God is the study, intake and metabolism of doctrine, (His Word,) on a daily basis.
The Word of God, the Mind of Christ, is the only prerequisite by which spiritual growth can become eternalized.
The first step towards this acquisition of knowledge is the act of confession unto God, Himself.
Not the, “Please forgive me ole Father,” syndrome.
To ask forgiveness is not in the Protocol plan of God.
However, confession is a priority. Scripture itself if accepted, is self-explanatory
Surely an all-knowing God would have known.
Perhaps the object of the rebellion was invisible.
The object of this rebellion towards the Lord God is the ignorance exhibited by Adam as he submitted to Eve.
He, Adam, became invisible to God. “Without question, Adam, “did eat,” verse 6.
“The women whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat,” verse 12.
The following is based on the work and study of, my son Jared Benjamin Reeves, the Administrative Pastor of thefishersnet.com.
His doctrine of, “Invisibility,” will explain why under our human viewpoint, God did not recognize Adam’s position.
God cannot and will not look on sin or the purveyor of sin.
As He will pronounce at the judgment seat, so it will be pronounced in this dispensation.
“I tell you; I know you not whence ye are, depart from me, all you workers of iniquity,” Luke 13:27.
Under the active operation of sin, a believer or unbeliever is not visible to God.
God cannot look upon sin therefore the sinner and the production of sin is out of God’s sight whereby becoming invisible.
As our Lord, on the cross, took the sins of the world, past, present and future, He became invisible to God and the Holy Spirit.
“My God! My God! Why have you forsaken me?” (Matthew 27:46).
God and the Holy Spirit turned their backs to Jesus. Christ would raise His eyes towards Heaven, seeing nothing.
At that nano-second, Christ as human, lost His identity.
Anyone that sins is a non-entity.
The sins that Christ had taken for us, was imputed or ascribed to Him.
He was innocent of the behavior of sin’s action; therefore, the sin was not accredited to Him.
He had no reason to confess to God, for He bore the pain and separation from sin’s scar.
Whereas, we as sinners must confess our sins to God to regain our identity to Him.
The only solution to this state of desolation is confession, made unto God.
It is only in this submissive will, that a person will become visible and heard by God. 1 John 1:9 is the promise and provision unto confession.
“If we confess our sins, He (God,) is faithful and just to forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
I do not see or read anywhere within this passage, “Please forgive me Father,” as a blanket prayer.
The only, “forgive,” present is Christ forgiving us.
The sins must be stated unto God before He acknowledges your presence and He sees you as the prodigal son.
This is called, “Rebound “.
However, man would prefer to remain in ignorance rather than embrace the truth, thereby exposing their unjustified pseudo-Christianity.
“Ignorance:”- The state of being ignorant which is; a lack of knowledge, or the result of the lack of knowledge. Is this to say that our
Lord was not all-knowing? Surely, he was and still is the all-knowing creator. Why would He indicate that he did not know where Adam was at the time?
