God created Satan as an Angel. The most beautiful and chef Angel of the heavenly host. However, this wasn’t enough for Satan! He wanted to become God and have total power. Sadly, Satan rebelled against,God, and there was a massive battle in Heaven. Satan lost and, with his followers, was thrown out of Heaven. It was Satan, in the form of a crafty serpent (or snake), who tempted first the woman EVE by influencing her not to listen to God about not eating from the tree of knowledge of good and evil which God commanded them not to partake because it will cause them to die inevitably. Satan was successful with his negative influence by telling Eve,”God knows that when you eat from it, your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” I (GOTCHA) meaning, “I got you.” Now trapped and eceived causes the whole world plus you and me to be unworthy in the judgment and wrath of the all mighty God. Satan used pride and greed, the same sins as he was guilty of when he rebelled against God. If you look closely, you will see the word pride written in the strength of Eve’s neck. Eve’s body is pure as it begins to transform into a vessel of death. From the neck up, her head is being filled with the lies of the serpent; As you open the tree, you find the enlightening works of good and evil. To the reader, and onlooker, if you ‘ve ever wondered why you disobey God’s commands or can’t seem to stop at your own will, in three words, “the snake GOTCHA.”
