Between the Deceivers and the Deceived, To Whom is God More Wrathful?
Revealed October 10, 2011
We have been conditioned by the religions to hate the snake that deceived Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, as it is written in the Book of Genesis of the Holy Bible. But they failed to tell the real lesson behind the story.
In the Garden, God told Adam that he could eat all the fruits of the trees in it except the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil located in the middle. If he would eat it, he would surely die.
Eve was created, and she was tempted by the snake to eat the forbidden fruit. She would convince Adam to eat it also. Who should Adam and Eve follow - God or the snake?
But they did eat the forbidden fruit, they disobeyed God. As a result of the disobedience of Adam and Eve through the deception by the devil or snake, God banished them from the Garden and meted out death as their punishment! The snake was not cast out of the Garden, but was only made to crawl on its belly as a punishment. None of the death meted out to the couple! Why is that?
The punishment was more severe for Adam and Eve (the deceived) than the punishment for the snake (the deceiver). This is because they were warned so clearly not to eat the fruit that was forbidden lest they die, and yet they believed the deception by the snake saying that eating the forbidden fruit would make them like gods and they would not die. They ate the fruit. Did they believe the deception and did they follow the snake or not?
Therefore, God banished them from His Presence and from the Garden; God does not want disobedient people! God gave them the intellect, eyes, ears and the needed faculties in order to distinguish what is right and what is wrong.
The wrath of God is great on people who allow themselves to be deceived by others. God gave clear commandments and clear consequences for disobedience. Yet people choose to disobey because of the promise given by another (the snake).
The work of the deceiver is to deceive others. The work of the snake or the Devil is to deceive people, as he did to Adam and Eve. The deceiver prospers because people allow themselves to be deceived. In the case of Adam and Eve, if they did remain steadfastly obedient to God and did not follow the snake, the deceiver would not have prospered and it would have been out of work. But with the empty promise made by the snake that they would be like gods and have immortality, the couple chose to eat the forbidden fruit and thereby disobeyed God.
How does it relate to our present time?
Almost everyday we can see on TV, hear on the radio and read in the newspapers, that more and more people are dying in different parts of the world because of natural disasters, climate change, destruction, hunger, plagues, poverty, war and other conflicts.
Sometimes we wonder. Why does God allow us to experience these kinds of sufferings? Are we being punished? Does it mean that we are also being punished for having been deceived, just like Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden?
In our present time, in what form is the deception being done?
Let us use our understanding and common sense. During natural disasters and conflicts, the religions ask us to pray to God. They tell us to call on Jesus for salvation and receive eternal life (immortality in heaven)! Does God hear our prayers? Do the disasters stop? No, the disasters are even getting worse. This means that all the prayers, including those of the religions', are not heard by God.
Maestro Evangelista explains thus: When people are faced with disasters and a variety of difficulties and conflicts, the religions teach us to call on the name of Jesus in order to receive salvation. Yet we have always known that before Jesus died on the cross, he cried out: “My God! My God! Why have You forsaken me?”
Jesus cried out to God but God let him die on the cross. How could the religions teach us to ask Jesus for help and salvation when he was not able to save himself? Are the religions not deceiving us?
To belabor the point further, here was a man beaten, tortured, killed and admitted that God has forsaken him, and here comes a preacher who teaches us that that man who was beaten, tortured and killed is our savior from whom we should seek help. It is all too clear that that preacher is deceiving us!
With a very effective propaganda machinery, the religions practically convinced all and the whole world to accept that Jesus is the savior of all in order to receive eternal life. What a wonderful deception made by the devil or snake and his disciples!
Because we let ourselves believe in the deception by the religions - to call on Jesus for salvation, instead of calling on God directly – is it not only reasonable to expect God to punish us?
This is the reason why the people of the world are currently experiencing severe difficulties. It is because we allowed ourselves this deception, we are now being cursed and chastened by God!
We can not blame anybody else but ourselves for the hardships and sufferings that we are experiencing today, because we let ourselves be deceived. We believed in the teachings of the religions that are full of lies and deceptions! We did not use our own understanding, but simply believed in the false teachings of the religions.
But as we read through this website, there is hope. God wants us to free ourselves from this deception by opening our understanding to His true teachings written in the Holy Book as revealed by Maestro Evangelista on this website. It is up to you to believe it or not.

The Revelation of the Foreigner as mentioned by King Solomon in:
“As for the foreigner who does not belong to your people Israel but has come from a distant land because of your name— for they will hear of your great name and your mighty hand and your outstretched arm—when he comes and pray toward this temple, then hear from heaven, your dwelling place. Do whatever the foreigner asks of you, so that all the peoples of the earth may know your name and fear you, as do your own people Israel, and may know that this house I have built bears your Name."
I Kings 8:41-43 (NIV)
