In the time before the great fall
The power of fire was known to man
Imparted at creation as a vital component of the human soul
And the only knowledge that the enemy did not possess
And the reason that he deceived humanity
Many ages have passed since that time
When the evil one made his pact
When men were yet ignorant to the truth and easily deceived
In exchange for the keys to knowledge
Mankind gave up their immortal souls
Corrupted by the enemy
The souls were held
Encased in ice
Indefinitely

    General CommentThese songs in the physics of fire (a total of four) are a history of mankind as portrayed in the Bible. Before "the great fall" the "power of fire" was know to man. This power of fire is the Holy Spirit, as Adam was, for a time, without sin and indewlt with the Spirit. Through the fall of mankind, this fire was removed due to the results of sin. When Adam Eve ate of the fruit of the tree of knowledge, they was gaining knowledge, but trading their eternal soul in the process. After this, the corruption of the enemy and of sin strangled their lifes, and the lifes of the human race, encasing them in spiritual ice for all time. Fortunately there is more to the story. See Fire Made Flesh (The Physics Of Fire Pt. 2).
