Unnatural Fruit

Now friends, here is an area that needs to be clarified because it has been distorted in the church. I know that Sunday School class didn’t teach you this, but the truth of the matter is that the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden is not an apple, orange, banana, or pear. It is a nature that has been transferred to humanity through obedience to the devil’s lie.

When God says do not partake of this particular fruit, it is not a commandment to stop man from eating some type of organically grown fruit from a literal tree. God was dealing with a nature, the fruit of a spirit. These fruit are outlined in Galatians 5:22-23:

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. Galatians 5:22-23

Just like the Spirit of God bears fruit, the spirit of Satan also bears fruit. All spirits have the propensity to bear fruit. Therefore, the forbidden fruit is a forbidden nature. The tree of the knowledge of good and evil produces fruit that is accessed by giving heed to Satan’s words. Satan is the tree, and the knowledge gained from his words is the forbidden fruit. When you eat forbidden fruit from the forbidden tree, you partake of the very nature of the devil.

However, Satan’s nature was one that man was never meant to possess. This nature is found in the seventeen (17) works of the flesh delineated in Galatians 5:19-21:

Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

Before Satan was able to entice man into this realm of the knowledge of good and evil, man had no knowledge of evil. He simply obeyed God by nature. But the nature of Satan gave Adam and Eve an awareness of both God’s goodness and the devil’s evil. Once Satan’s nature was introduced to man, he had the ability to operate in his own free will. This forced man to have to make daily choices as to whether he was going to obey God or the devil.

When Adam and Eve walked away from the anchor of their souls (the Lord God Almighty) into the soulish den of the devil, they immediately began to spiritually mutate into another life-type– one not created by God, but the devil. Detached from God, man became a strange creation. In God’s presence, he now felt self-conscious, paranoid, unusual, and strange. As we see in Genesis 3:8, man’s fallen nature leads him to hide from God, cover himself up and avoid the truth and light of God.

Since God easily sees all things in man, the only person he is really hiding from is himself. Through the fallen state, man has taken on the image of the devil—not by acts of sin, but by nature. According to the Bible, this makes us the children of wrath. By feasting on the forbidden fruit, we become the offspring of the devil, allowing him to rule the human soul by nature. Once man takes on this nature, he becomes the very antithesis of God and His Creator becomes his enemy. In light of this, God sent His Son, not to destroy us physically, but to destroy the nature we possess. For this purpose was the Son of God manifest, that He might destroy the works of the devil.

When Eve obeyed the voice of Satan in spite of what God had instructed, she gave him preeminence and the right to stand in the place of God. When Adam submitted to Eve’s lies, wiles, and seduction, he gave up his position as the authority for God. He bowed the knee and began to worship and serve Eve, who was supposed to be submitted to him. Here we see the gravest consequences of the fall. When Adam bowed to Eve in rebellion against the Word of God, for all intents and purposes, they switched places. Eve became the authority and Adam the submissive one. This is why we currently have matriarchal rulership seeking to take over and displace God’s Sovereign order.

When God came to Adam (as the authority) and asked, “What have you done?” the effect of the fallen nature is visible in Adam’s reply. He quickly turns to blame the woman. Without hesitation, the irresponsibility of his rebellious deeds is swiftly cast on somebody else. In a single breath, Adam walks away from his authority and responsibility before God in search of a scapegoat. Similarly, when the Lord addresses Eve, she blames the serpent. No one is accountable in this fallen, perverted, and mutated nature
