Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. (Genesis 3:1-3)
The Hebrew word for knowledge is daath [דעת]. This is a kind of particular type of knowledge, a unique and experimental type of knowledge to the Consciousness. It is not related to the intellect. It is not related to belief. It is not in the form of thoughts, words, ideas, concepts, theories or dogmas. It is relative to a consciousness and related to the soul, which has to be placed in to practice allowing the internal knowledge related to elaboration and creation of the soul. The word “knowledge” is translated from the Hebrew word “daath,” meaning “cunning knowledge” (Strong’s 1847); “to perceive, to be sensible of, by sight, by touch, but chiefly in the mind; hence, to understand, observe; to consider; marking and observing with a purpose. Adam and Eve decided to take the place of the creator. They committed the same violation as the devil himself. The devil played on their pride; which became the first sin. Disobedience was the second sin. Taking the place of God was the encompassment in to the second sin.
In Hebrew, דעת Daath is spelled with three letters: ד daleth, ע ayin, and ת tav. The twenty-two Hebrew letters symbolize and encode the entire path to awaken the Consciousness and to have the direct experience of God, the entire path to become a fully-developed soul.
The initial letter in the word Daath, is daleth [ד], Which symbolizes a door. The meanings of Daleth are, to move, to hang and to enter (entrance). Daleth is the fourth letter of the Hebrew alphabet, and carries the value of the number four. Adam and Eve went through the door and disobeyed the commandment. They descended to a low state, a state of existence burdened by death and suffering. It wasn’t God who kicked them out from eternal paradise; it was them walking through the door to have their own experiences. God only stated the fact they already knew when he told them they have to leave.
In the early Semitic/ Hebrew language literally an eye was draw to represent this letter.
Ayin also means to watch, to know, the shade and the experience.
Finally, the third letter Tav [ת] symbolizes a covenant, a seal. It is the twenty-second letter, the final letter of the Hebrew alphabet. In the early Semitic/Hebrew language, the crossed sticks represented this letter. The meaning of this letter is; the mark, the sign, the/to signal/ the monument. So, it is the seal or completion of the twenty-two letters. The twenty-two letters contain all the knowledge in symbolic form; subsequently the Tav is the synthesis of them all. It is the completion, the end, the seal of the covenant.
The letters of Daath say: Daleth is the doorway, Ayin is the way to see, and Tav is the end of the work. The word Daath contains a message. Through the knowledge you can arrive at the vision, the insight, the perception of the complete path of all the work and skill, to discern, and understand and have experiential wisdom of all creation. The twenty-two letters symbolize and encompass all the laws that manage everything that exists. Daath becomes a discipline of sorts, an art or a science to perceive knowledge or wisdom and to access it.
And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons (v.7).
And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:
Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the Garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.
So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.(v’s. 22-24)(KJV)
Subsequently, by eating the fruit of knowledge, man has chosen the law. The law which reveals the truth; albeit, because the cross is the covenant, within the fruit of experimental knowledge God already had the covenant prepared. This covenant was our Lord Jesus Christ, Yeshua, for the Lord saves.
There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you. Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. (Romans 8:1-17)
