Today's Favorite Verse: Abraham 5:13

Today's Favorite Verse: Abraham 5:13
"But of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it; for in the time that thou eatest thereof, thou shalt surely die. Now I, Abraham, saw that it was after the Lord's time, which was after the time of Kolob; for as yet the Gods had not appointed unto Adam his reckoning."

In the time of Kolob one day equals a thousand years to man. I have often thought about the serpent tempting Adam and Eve in the garden. Telling them they won't die by eating the fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Of course the serpent was Satan and all he can do is lie, and deny God's word. For God told man that in the day that they ate of that fruit they would die. As it happens once they eat of the fruit neither of them dies right away. So did God lie because they didn't die within the day?  No, for the reckoning of time was 1,000 years to equal the day in which Adam would die. For Adam in our time lived to be 929 years old. So he did die within the day counted by God. This simple story shows me how God never lies and everything he says is fulfilled. It's man that just doesn't understand his ways.

Day 572
