The Fall and God plan of Salvation
Text: Genesis 3; John 3:15-23;
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. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. Gen. 3:3-5;
Meditate on this Verse Gen. 1:26;
Afterward talk about this
According to the statement of the devil in Gen. 1: 1- 8, what kin of God was the Devil telling the woman that she would be like?
Things to do before the next time
If Man had told his wife the truth, the way God said it what would been the fate of the serpent before Eve, find out in your home or family the truth, if has not been cover to prevent the children from the societal virtues has it help such children, if it help them or not let know your reply.
Write a page of how you get save telling it the way they are can help your children overcome social evil.
Truth is one of the factor as Christian we must be careful of because there is no such thing as absolute true that is truth across every culture and nation, so truth is faith or believe. what we believe in become our truth, Serpent true was a selfish, misinforming truth but the woman believe his truth “1 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?2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: 3 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. 4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: 5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.” Gen. 3:1-6; these are the three type of truth that the serpent said 1. What did God said? 2. You shall not surely die! 3. You shall be as God.
1. What did God said
One principal tactics of Satanic decision is what did God say, what is Law saying about it and what is written in the Bible. The devil deceptive method is to tell you, it is written because what is written is a confirmed truth so the only way to get man to rebel against his maker is it is written, but the different between what is written is understanding the meaning that provoke faith because this is the only weapon against him. Christian today are deceive by the word it is written this is satanic tactic of deception in churches because many fail to understand it takes understanding of the word to overcome not the quotation because the devil is always there to tell you how shore are you about what is written.
2. You will not surely die
Second principle of satan is you will not surely die which mean you will recarnated in some way to through your grant son or distant friend or becoming your wish. This fact is believe among africa, Asia and North American citizens to a great extent and above all it is the Gospel of the newage and clearly thought in our school as theory of evolution which bring about the survival of the fitest which bring about the elimination of the weaker race so that the stronger race can grow into superman Hitler dream and this same dream of all the world rulers in history which give birth to Satan super Kingdoms which we will discuss in detail in understanding prophecy. But the word not surely means you will die but not instantly in Satan terminology but for man he think it mean living his life forever and possibly away of escaping death which is the purpose of science rather it bring more swift destruction on them.
3. You shall be as God
This Satan final goal and final deception for man telling them that they can be limitless god in their knowledge, invention, and discovery but which God was man trying to be like, is it the father of love who want every body to be one in him as he is one and make man in the image of his oneness and likeness or Satan kind of god who is the “I will” kind of god who want every thing for himself and himself alone who care nothing for even those that where his follower or in his captivity as a result of doing his will. Yes this is his dream for man to turn themselve to himself which indeed became him when they put themselves before God and others in their business, Job, Church and Missions, all this happen because man was made to believe that that God never want them to be like him which is still believe among Jews till today but how is it that he make man a God over all the earth make them to have all his atribute as voice, wisdow, creativity, love, unity and peace etc. Which you can’t find among other creature which mean the devil never knew God as he taught he did because this could explain why our understanding of God would change our action, believe or faith in him.
God plan for salvation
Now man who was the image of God has choosing to become devil by delibrately chosen to become devil in his act of disobedient to his maker thereby condenming himself to a lost eternity and change the short work of God to broaden door of unknown but God which is a merciful father will not allow his word to return to him void because he has said let man have dominion over all the earth. And God knew that man sin has brought nakedness before the enemy which is at the verge of destroying man his creature forcing him to execute Judgement upon his creature and man knowing he has sin try to make amendment by making for themselve apron which was religion meaning we want to leave right so that our sin can be forgiven but the question is how much righteous living can undo the fact that man has rebel against his maker just as no act of religion would get us save today because without the sharing of blood there is no remission for sin which mean all the fig in the garden would not have clothed man from the enemy so that his nakedness is not exposed.
God move of redemption
God knew that for man to escape divine Judgement from the enemy, that the traitor has be to kill and that would means killing man which he has made and delivering them to eternal torture, so instead of this Judgement one innocent Man has to be put to death since it was one man that sin, but he must has some qualities it has to be a kins man of Adam but has not sin after the nature of Adam, he must be willing to perform, ready to perform and able to perform though tried like Adam and was the symbol of the lamb that was slay to cloth Adam and his wife in the garden but not without consequence though because they lost their freedom and where send out of the garden. This is a lesson to us because though God forgive iniquity but he by no means clear the guilty.
Spend a minute to change the world
Pray for our Church system in europe, Africa and America that God should make us to represent him in the through sense. Because we have thousands of churches and church leaders who are serving devil by their action on daily basis.
