Firewater Friday - Ancient Love Triangle

I think it’s safe to say that most people know the story of Adam and Eve.   God formed Adam from the earth. Some religions believe that Eve was not Adam’s first wife.   It is written that a woman was created at the same time and from the same earth as Adam . . . and her name was Lilith.  Because she was created as an equal to her mate, Lilith refused to be subservient to Adam and left the Garden of Eden.  It was then that God created Eve from one of Adam’s ribs.   Because Eve was born of his flesh she would be bonded to him and thus obedient to him.  Adam would not be alone and they could fulfill the mandates of God . . . . to eat, sleep and produce offspring.  Oh, let’s not forget the tree . . . the tree of life or death or knowledge, depending on your beliefs . . . they had to stay away from that. 

When Lilith left the garden she consorted with fallen angels and her body was transformed from its womanly shape to a body that was of a woman from the waist up and a serpent below

We know from the stories that Eve was tempted by a serpent, took the apple from the tree and shared it with Adam.  
Upon which God expelled them from the garden for disobeying and from then on were forced to labor and toil to survive.  The serpent  . . . was it really a snake at all?  Lilith, although now banished forever from the Garden, sneaked back and it was she who tempted Eve . . . innocent and naïve . . . by handing her the Punic Apple and so was responsible for the fall of man.

The Punic Apple . . . possibly not an apple at all, but a pomegranate . . . Punica granatum.  The name "pomegranate" derives from Latin pōmum "apple" and grānātus "seeded".  The genus name Punica refers to the Phoenicians.  Pomegranates have been cultivated in the Middle East since ancient times where the Garden of Eden was thought to have been.
Here’s to evil temptresses, forbidden fruit and fizzy cocktails.


Pomegranate Fizz
  • 1 Liter Club Soda (Or Lemon-Lime Soda For A Sweeter Drink)
  • 1 1/2 Cups Pomegranate Juice
  • 1 1/2 Cups Vodka
  • 1/4 Cup Triple Sec 
  • 1/4 Cup Fresh Lime Juice
Combine all ingredients in pitcher and stir.  Server over ice and garnish with a lime wedge.


  1. seat of goverment

  2. satan by the power of the deceit of sin (satan=sin=deceit=the lie) put a wedge between Eve and Adam, and Adam chose the fruit Eve then offered him! Eve was deceived, Adam did CHOOSE. Adam's CHOICE caused ALL their children to be taken captive by satan into sin.

    The consequences are many, but God "framed" all the consequences of this catastrophe in Genesis 3:

    14 And the Lord God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:
    15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
    16 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.
    17 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;
    18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;
    19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

    With all my heart I believe we need to meditate on this section of God's Holy Message. We need to chew on it like a cow does the cud, and let it sink deeply into our hearts.

    "I will keep thy statutes: O forsake me not utterly.
    Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.
    With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments.
    Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
    Blessed art thou, O Lord: teach me thy statutes."
    Psalm 119:8-12
