Desire is the root of temptation, without a desire you cannot be tempted. The desire that God has placed inside of us is a natural desire for everything good and perfect, and that comes from him. (See James 1:17). One rule, one love, one desire, all in HIM. Satan used manipulation along with natural desires in such a way that it attempts to undermine the word of God. Satan used Eve’s desire through manipulation to give her a strong feeling of pride and she wanted more power. Living as citizens of the Kingdom of God means that our every desire is sinless when it is done in order. You can desire a woman, when it is your wife, desire an office when it is a good thing and desire God while you seek first the Kingdom of God. Satan is constantly asking us, why did God give you natural desires and not let you have what you desire? No one said that you cannot have what you desire when the desire is according to the word, and will of God. We not only see manipulation of the word desire in Genesis, but we see it also in the church today. If an unnatural desire is allowed to run its course it will grow and develop and it will end up with death. In the case of Eve we can see how her desire was conceived in a thought, fed through manipulation, grew into a passion, developed into sin, and resulted in DEATH.
