The Devil's A.I.
What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? Psalms 8:4
This is an age long question of humanity “Who am I?” The Natural man (1 Corinthians 2:4) will always be seeking the answer outside of God. The scriptures tell us that Adam the first human was created in the Image of God. God in His wisdom was to house himself in the body of Adam (Gen 3:15). To walk among humans (John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us) and rule His creation (Gen. 1:28). When God created the body of Adam from the clay of the earth and blew into it the breath of life (spirit), it became a Living Soul. Adam was an immortal being able to communicate, fellowship with his Creator he was the son of God. His duty was to dress and keep the garden (Gen 2:15) and not eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Adam named the creatures of the garden and Adam found no help meet for him. The LORD God then done the first operation and caused Adam to sleep and pull the rib out of Adam 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 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh” Gen. 2:23 -24
The LORD God seen them as one is quite clear. The human species will continue through them. Now the Devil through the serpent began his treachery and deceived the woman into disobedience and Adam to blatantly be disobedient. Adam ate of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and this changed the very being of both. The devil had achieved to subvert Adam-kind and have dominion over them.
Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out John 12:31
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 2 Corinthians 4:4
The change of Adam caused sin to enter the world
Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: Romans 5:12
Adam-kind went from immortal to a mortal being and all of Adam’s posterity bore the image of fallen Adam not the image of God.
And Adam lived a hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, and after his image; and called his name Seth: Genesis 5:3
So all humans are under Satan’s rule,
Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. John 8:31
Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath Ephesian 2:2-3
Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me. Psalm 51:5
In short, all human at birth are Adams fallen image (A.I) therefore a child of Devil therefore the Devil’s A.I. but there is hope through Jesus Christ the Almighty’s Image (A.I) to bring the lost back to Him.
So, who are we? We are the Devil’s A.I until we are called by God by His Grace (see 2nd post Salvation is a God work only) to be in the image of Christ (Almighty’s Image).
For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son… Romans 8:29
