How the first woman-Eve- really messed us

From the gospel as revealed to Maria valtorta: You can first read her story here:

17. The Disobedience of Eve and the Obedience of Mary.

5th March 1944.

Jesus says:

« …Do we not read in Genesis that God made man the overlord of everything on

the earth, that is everything except God and His angelical ministers? Do we not

read that He made the woman the companion of man in his joy and his

domination over all living beings? Do we not read that they were allowed to eat

of everything with the exception of the tree of the knowledge of Good and Evil?

Why? What is the meaning of the words “that he might rule”? And what is the

meaning of the tree of the knowledge of Good and Evil? Have you ever asked

these questions, you man, who ask so many useless ones and never ask your

soul about heavenly truths? Your soul would tell you, if it were alive, because a

soul in grace is held like a flower in the hands of your angel, and like a flower it

is kissed by the sun and sprinkled with dew by the Holy Spirit, Who warms and

illuminates it, sprays and decorates it with heavenly lights. How many truths

your soul would tell you, if you only knew how to converse with it, if you loved

your soul that makes you like God, Who is a spirit, as your soul is a spirit. What

a great friend you would have if you loved your soul instead of hating it to the

extent of killing it; what a great and sublime friend with whom you could talk of

celestial matters, since you men are so eager to talk and you ruin one another

with friendships which, if they are not unworthy ones (as sometimes they are),

they are almost always useless and they turn into a vain and damaging tumult of

worldly words.

Did I not say: “If anyone loves Me he will keep My word, and My Father will

love him, and we shall come to him and make Our home with him”? The soul in

grace possesses love, and by possessing love it possesses God, that is the Father

Who preserves it, the Son Who teaches it, the Spirit Who illuminates it. It therefore

possesses Knowledge, Science, Wisdom, Light. Consider therefore what

sublime conversations your soul could hold with you. Such conversations filled

the silence of prisons, the silence of cells, the silence of hermitages, the silence

of the rooms of holy sick people. Such conversations were the consolation of

prisoners awaiting martyrdom, of cloistered monks and nuns searching for the

Truth, of hermits longing for an advanced knowledge of God, of sick people in

bearing, nay, in loving their crosses.

If you knew how to question your soul, you would be told that the true,

extensive meaning – as comprehensive as creation itself – of the words “that he

might rule” is this: “That man might dominate everything, that is his three states.

The lower state, the animal one. The middle state, the moral one. The superior

state, the spiritual one. And all three of them are to be directed to one sole aim:

to possess God.” To possess Him by deserving Him through a strict control

which subdues all the power of one’s ego and conveys it to one only purpose: to

deserve to possess God.

Your soul would tell you that God had forbidden the knowledge of good and

evil, because He had already granted good to His creatures gratuitously, and He

did not want you to know evil, because it is a sweet fruit to taste, but once its

juice becomes part of your blood, it causes a fever that kills you and produces a

parching thirst, so that the more one drinks of that false juice, the more thirsty

one becomes.

You may object: “And why did He put it there?” Because evil is a force that

originated by itself like certain monstrous diseases in the most wholesome body.

Lucifer was an angel, the most beautiful of all the angels, a perfect spirit,

inferior only to God, and yet in his bright essence a vapour of pride arose and he

did not scatter it. On the contrary, he condensed it by brooding over it. And Evil

was born of this incubation. It existed before man. God had hurled him out of

Paradise, the cursed incubator of Evil, who had desecrated Paradise. But he is

the eternal incubator of Evil and as he can no longer soil Paradise, he has soiled

the earth.

That metaphorical tree proves this truth. God had said to the man and the

woman: “You know all the laws and the mysteries of creation. But do not

infringe on My right of being the Creator of man. My love will suffice for the

propagation of the human race and it will spread among you and will excite the

new Adams of the race without any lust of the senses but with purely charitable

pulsations. I have given you everything. I am only keeping for Myself this

mystery of the formation of man.”

Satan wanted to deprive man of this intellectual virginity and with his venomous

tongue he blandished and caressed Eve’s limbs and eyes, exciting reflections and

a perspicacity which they did not have before, because malice had not yet

intoxicated them. She “saw”. And seeing, she wanted to try. Her flesh was

aroused. Oh! If she had called to God! If she had hurried to Him saying:

“Father! The Serpent has caressed me and I am upset.” The Father would have

purified and healed her with His breath, which could have infused new

innocence into her as it had infused life. And it would have made her forget the

snake’s poison, nay it would have engendered in her a disgust for the Serpent, as

it happens in those who bear an instinctive dislike for diseases of which they

have just been cured. But Eve does not go to the Father. Eve goes back to the

Serpent. The sensation is a sweet one for her. “Seeing that the fruit of the tree

was good to eat and pleasing and agreeable to the eye, she took it and ate it.”

And “she understood”. Now Malice was inside her and was gnawing at her

intestines. She saw with new eyes and heard with new ears the habits and voices

of beasts. And she craved for them with insane greed.

She began the sin by herself. She accomplished it with her companion. That is

why a heavier sentence is laid on woman. Because of her, man has become

rebellious towards God and has become acquainted with lewdness and death.

Because of her, he was no longer capable of dominating his three reigns: the

reign of the spirit, because he allowed the spirit to disobey God; the moral reign,

because he allowed passions to master him; the reign of the flesh, because he

lowered it down to the instinctive level of beasts. “The Serpent seduced me”

says Eve. “The woman offered me the fruit and I ate of it” says Adam. And the

triple greed has ruled the three dominions since then.

Only Grace can relax the hold of this ruthless monster. And if Grace is alive, nay

thoroughly alive, and kept more and more alive by the good will of a faithful

son, it will succeed in strangling the monster and will no longer have anything to

fear. It will not be afraid of internal tyrants, which are the flesh and passions;

neither will it be afraid of external tyrants, these are the world and the mighty

ones on the earth. It will dread neither persecutions nor death. It is as Paul the

Apostle says: “I fear none of these things, neither do I care for my life more than

I care for myself, provided I carry out the mission and the ministry the Lord

Jesus gave me, and that was to bear witness to the Good News of God’s Grace.”


If you still believe in talking snakes and magic fruits you are the one who is messed up!
