Adultery

This is a few chapters in the second book of Adam and Eve. They tell of the first temptation of Adam to commit adultery. The devil disguised himself as a beautiful woman. The Lord spoke to Adam several words a few in the passage state"Is God black, can God take form of a woman". Most of the second chapter of the a passage is God teaching adam not to be decieved by the devil.
Adultery is a very dark thing. In modern times we take adultery very lightly. Because of christs new covenant it is no longer the law that we dont commit adultery it is Love. Love is the law Jesus said. We cannot judge anyone for committing adultery. It tells us in his gospels that even if we lust in our heart and mind for one another and are married we committ adultery. That would be most people who have ever been married and watched adult movies or looked at the porn mags. Every woman who or man who's married who masterbates or fantasizes about sex with someone other than their spouse. In this world that is alot of adultery. God will judge and Love is the law he will judge us about. Anyone divorced is committing adultery in their second marriage. Even if they stay true in their heart to their spouse they still committ adultery according to the gospels. So what the Lord is teaching us is his marriage to us is the purest bond. His marriage to our spirit is the matrimony we sin against. We have to love as christ loves us. God is so kind and forgiving we will get to heaven and in a mysterious glory that will serve justice to us all. We need to fear God who can throw us in hell. However its Jesus who teaches us to fear God. We cannot be God to one another condemning each other to try and teach to fear God. The Holy Spirit teaches us all we need to know about love and disciplines us through trials and tribulations. We are being perfected and transformed into christs image. That doesnt mean any of us are there yet.



GEN 39:12 She caught him by his cloak and said, "Come to bed with me!" But
he left his cloak in her hand and ran out of the house.

EXO 20:14 "You shall not commit adultery.

22:16 "If a man seduces a virgin who is not pledged to be married and
sleeps with her, he must pay the bride-price, and she shall be his wife.

17 If her father absolutely refuses to give her to him, he must still pay
the bride-price for virgins.

LEV 18:20 "'Do not have sexual relations with your neighbor's wife and
defile yourself with her.

19:20 "'If a man sleeps with a woman who is a slave girl promised to
another man but who has not been ransomed or given her freedom, there must
be due punishment. Yet they are not to be put to death, because she had not
been freed.

29 "'Do not degrade your daughter by making her a prostitute, or the land
will turn to prostitution and be filled with wickedness.

20:10 "'If a man commits adultery with another man's wife--with the wife
of his neighbor--both the adulterer and the adulteress must be put to
death.

11 "'If a man sleeps with his father's wife, he has dishonored his father.
Both the man and the woman must be put to death; their blood will be on
their own heads.

12 "'If a man sleeps with his daughter-in-law, both of them must be put to
death. What they have done is a perversion; their blood will be on their
own heads.

DEU 5:18 "You shall not commit adultery.

22:13 If a man takes a wife and, after lying with her, dislikes her

14 and slanders her and gives her a bad name, saying, "I married this
woman, but when I approached her, I did not find proof of her virginity,"

15 then the girl's father and mother shall bring proof that she was a
virgin to the town elders at the gate.

16 The girl's father will say to the elders, "I gave my daughter in
marriage to this man, but he dislikes her.

17 Now he has slandered her and said, 'I did not find your daughter to be
a virgin.' But here is the proof of my daughter's virginity." Then her
parents shall display the cloth before the elders of the town,

18 and the elders shall take the man and punish him.

19 They shall fine him a hundred shekels of silver and give them to the
girl's father, because this man has given an Israelite virgin a bad name.
She shall continue to be his wife; he must not divorce her as long as he
lives.

20 If, however, the charge is true and no proof of the girl's virginity
can be found,

21 she shall be brought to the door of her father's house and there the
men of her town shall stone her to death. She has done a disgraceful thing
in Israel by being promiscuous while still in her father's house. You must
purge the evil from among you.

22 If a man is found sleeping with another man's wife, both the man who
slept with her and the woman must die. You must purge the evil from Israel.

23 If a man happens to meet in a town a virgin pledged to be married and
he sleeps with her,

24 you shall take both of them to the gate of that town and stone them to
death--the girl because she was in a town and did not scream for help, and
the man because he violated another man's wife. You must purge the evil
from among you.

25 But if out in the country a man happens to meet a girl pledged to be
married and rapes her, only the man who has done this shall die.

26 Do nothing to the girl; she has committed no sin deserving death. This
case is like that of someone who attacks and murders his neighbor,

27 for the man found the girl out in the country, and though the betrothed
girl screamed, there was no one to rescue her.

28 If a man happens to meet a virgin who is not pledged to be married and
rapes her and they are discovered,

29 he shall pay the girl's father fifty shekels of silver. He must marry
the girl, for he has violated her. He can never divorce her as long as he
lives.

23:17 No Israelite man or woman is to become a shrine prostitute.

27:20 "Cursed is the man who sleeps with his father's wife, for he
dishonors his father's bed." Then all the people shall say, "Amen!"

22 "Cursed is the man who sleeps with his sister, the daughter of his
father or the daughter of his mother." Then all the people shall say,
"Amen!"

23 "Cursed is the man who sleeps with his mother-in-law." Then all the
people shall say, "Amen!"

PRO 2:16 It will save you also from the adulteress, from the wayward wife
with her seductive words,

17 who has left the partner of her youth and ignored the covenant she made
before God.

18 For her house leads down to death and her paths to the spirits of the
dead.

19 None who go to her return or attain the paths of life.

5:3 For the lips of an adulteress drip honey, and her speech is smoother
than oil;

4 but in the end she is bitter as gall, sharp as a double-edged sword.

5 Her feet go down to death; her steps lead straight to the grave.

6 She gives no thought to the way of life; her paths are crooked, but she
knows it not.

7 Now then, my sons, listen to me; do not turn aside from what I say.

8 Keep to a path far from her, do not go near the door of her house,

9 lest you give your best strength to others and your years to one who is
cruel,

20 Why be captivated, my son, by an adulteress? Why embrace the bosom of
another man's wife?

21 For a man's ways are in full view of the LORD, and he examines all his
paths.

22 The evil deeds of a wicked man ensnare him; the cords of his sin hold
him fast.

6:24 keeping you from the immoral woman, from the smooth tongue of the
wayward wife.

25 Do not lust in your heart after her beauty or let her captivate you
with her eyes,

26 for the prostitute reduces you to a loaf of bread, and the adulteress
preys upon your very life.

27 Can a man scoop fire into his lap without his clothes being burned?

28 Can a man walk on hot coals without his feet being scorched?

29 So is he who sleeps with another man's wife; no one who touches her
will go unpunished.

32 But a man who commits adultery lacks judgment; whoever does so destroys
himself.

HOS 1:2 When the LORD began to speak through Hosea, the LORD said to him,
"Go, take to yourself an adulterous wife and children of unfaithfulness,
because the land is guilty of the vilest adultery in departing from the
LORD."

MAT 5:27 "You have heard that it was said, 'Do not commit adultery.'

28 But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already
committed adultery with her in his heart.

32 But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital
unfaithfulness, causes her to become an adulteress, and anyone who marries
the divorced woman commits adultery.

15:19 For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual
immorality, theft, false testimony, slander.

19:9 I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital
unfaithfulness, and marries another woman commits adultery."

18 "Which ones?" the man inquired. Jesus replied, "'Do not murder, do not
commit adultery, do not steal, do not give false testimony,

MAR 7:21 For from within, out of men's hearts, come evil thoughts, sexual
immorality, theft, murder, adultery,

10:11 He answered, "Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman
commits adultery against her.

12 And if she divorces her husband and marries another man, she commits
adultery."

19 You know the commandments: 'Do not murder, do not commit adultery, do
not steal, do not give false testimony, do not defraud, honor your father
and mother.'"

LUK 16:18 "Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits
adultery, and the man who marries a divorced woman commits adultery.

18:20 You know the commandments: 'Do not commit adultery, do not murder,
do not steal, do not give false testimony, honor your father and mother.'"

JOH 8:4 and said to Jesus, "Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of
adultery.

5 In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?"

6 They were using this question as a trap, in order to have a basis for
accusing him. But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with
his finger.

7 When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them,
"If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at
her."

8 Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground.

9 At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones
first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there.

10 Jesus straightened up and asked her, "Woman, where are they? Has no one
condemned you?"

11 "No one, sir," she said. "Then neither do I condemn you," Jesus
declared. "Go now and leave your life of sin."

ROM 7:3 So then, if she marries another man while her husband is still
alive, she is called an adulteress. But if her husband dies, she is
released from that law and is not an adulteress, even though she marries
another man.

13:9 The commandments, "Do not commit adultery," "Do not murder," "Do not
steal," "Do not covet," and whatever other commandment there may be, are
summed up in this one rule: "Love your neighbor as yourself."

1CO 5:11 But now I am writing you that you must not associate with anyone
who calls himself a brother but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater
or a slanderer, a drunkard or a swindler. With such a man do not even eat.

6:9 Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God?
Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor
adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders

10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers
will inherit the kingdom of God.

13 "Food for the stomach and the stomach for food"--but God will destroy
them both. The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord,
and the Lord for the body.

15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ himself? Shall I
then take the members of Christ and unite them with a prostitute? Never!

16 Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one
with her in body? For it is said, "The two will become one flesh."

18 Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside
his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body.

GAL 5:19 The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality,
impurity and debauchery;

21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did
before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.

EPH 5:3 But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality,
or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for
God's holy people.

5 For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person--such a
man is an idolater--has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of
God.

HEB 13:4 Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept
pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.




Chapter 3
Satan appears as a beautiful woman tempting Adam, telling him he is still a youth, "Spend thy youth in mirth and pleasuse," The different forms which Satan takes.



1.As for our father Adam, at the end of seven years from the day he had been severed from his wife Eve, Satan envied him, when he saw him thus separated from her; and strove to make him live with her again.



2 Then Adam arose and went up above the Cave of Treasures; and continued to sleep there night by night. But as soon as it was light every day he came down to the cave, to pray there and to receive a blessing from it.



3 But when it was evening he went up on the roof of the cave, where he slept by himself, fearing lest Satan should overcome him. And he continued thus apart thirty-nine days.



4 Then Satan, the hater of all good, when he saw Adam thus alone, fasting and praying, appeared unto him in the form of a beautiful woman, who came and stood before him in the night of the fortieth day, and said unto him:-



5 "0 Adam, from the time ye have dwelt in this cave, we have experienced great peace from you, and your prayers have reached us, and we have been comforted about you.



6 "But now, 0 Adam, that thou hast gone up over the roof of the cave to sleep, we have had doubts about thee, and a great sorrow has come upon us because of thy separation from Eve. Then again, when thou art on the roof of this cave, thy prayer is poured out, and thy heart wanders from side to side.



7 "But when thou wast in the cave thy prayer was like fire gathered together; it came down to us, and thou didst find rest.



8 "Then I also grieved over thy children who are severed from thee; and my sorrow is great about the murder of thy son Abel; for he was righteous; and over a righteous man every one will grieve.



9 "But I rejoiced over the birth of thy son Seth; yet after a little while I sorrowed greatly over Eve, because she is my sister. For when God sent a deep sleep over thee, and drew her out of thy side, He brought me out also with her. But HE raised her by placing her with thee, while He lowered me.



10 "I rejoiced over my sister for her being with thee. But God had made me a promise before, and said, 'Grieve not; when Adam has gone up on the roof of the Cave of Treasures, and is separated from Eve his wife, I will send thee to him, thou shalt join thyself to him in marriage, and bear him five children, as Eve did bear him five.'



11 "And now, lo! God's promise to me is fulfilled; for it is He who has sent me to thee for the wedding; because if thou wed me, I shall bear thee finer and better children than those of Eve.



12 "Then again, thou art as yet but a youth; end not thy youth in this world in sorrow; but spend the days of thy youth in mirth and pleasure. For thy days are few and thy trial is great. Be strong; end thy days in this world in rejoicing. I shall take pleasure in thee, and thou shall rejoice with me in this wise, and without fear.



13 "Up, then, and fulfill the command of thy God," she then drew near to Adam, and embraced him.



14 But when Adam saw that he should be overcome by her, he prayed to God with a fervent heart to deliver him from her.



15 Then God sent His Word unto Adam, saying, "O Adam, that figure is the one that promised thee the Godhead, and majesty; he is not favourably disposed towards thee; but shows himself to thee at one time in the form of a woman; another moment, in the likeness if an angel; on another occasions, in the similitude of a serpent; and at another time, in the semblance of a god; but he does all that only to destroy thy soul.



16 "Now, therefore, O Adam, understanding thy heart, I have delivered thee many a time from his hands; in order to show thee that I am a merciful God; and that I wish thy good, and that I do not wish thy ruin."





Chapter 4
Adam sees the Devil in his true colors.




1. Then God ordered Satan to show himself to Adam plainly, in his own hideous form.



2 But when Adam saw him, he feared, and trembled at the sight of him.



3 And God said to Adam, 'Look at this devil, and at his hideous look, and know that he it is who made thee fall from brightness into darkness, from peace and rest to toil and misery.



4 And look, O Adam, at him, who said of himself that he is God! Can God be black? Would God take the form of a woman? Is there any one stronger than God? And can He be overpowered?



5 "See, then, O Adam, and behold him bound in thy presence, in the air, unable to flee away! Therefore, I say unto thee, be not afraid of him; henceforth take care, and beware of him, in whatever he may do to thee."



6 Then God drove Satan away from before Adam, whom He strengthened, and whose heart He comforted, saying to him, "Go down to the Cave of Treasures, and separate not thyself from Eve; I will quell in you all animal lust."



7 From that hour it left Adam and Eve, and they enjoyed rest by the commandment of God. But God did not the like to any one of Adam's seed; but only to Adam and Eve.



8 Then Adam worshipped before the Lord, for having delivered him, and for having layed his passions. And he came down from above the cave, and dwelt with Eve as aforetime.



9 This ended the forty days of his separation from Eve
