Just had a lightning strike in my heart today . . .thought I'd share it with you. I'm going to post some Scriptures, pretend they're dots . . .as you see them, see if you can connect the dots. Once they're connected, what picture presents itself to you?
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:
Whatsoever goeth upon the belly, and whatsoever goeth upon all four, or whatsoever hath more feet among all creeping things that creep upon the earth, them ye shall not eat; for they are an abomination.
20But if thou hast gone aside to another instead of thy husband, and if thou be defiled, and some man have lain with thee beside thine husband:
21Then the priest shall charge the woman with an oath of cursing, and the priest shall say unto the woman, The LORD make thee a curse and an oath among thy people, when the LORD doth make thy thigh to rot, and thy belly to swell;
22And this water that causeth the curse shall go into thy bowels, to make thy belly to swell, and thy thigh to rot: And the woman shall say, Amen, amen.

The spirit of man is the candle of the LORD, searching all the inward parts of the belly.

And of course, the culmination of all passages come together through this great proclamation . . . .the reversing of the curse . . .
