The Fall (January 27, 2013)
* Gen 2:15-17 – Then the Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it. 16) And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; 17) but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.”
* In Eden mankind would have lived forever, sin entered, the curse of sin marked them and all mankind for death. The word die actually means dispatch one to their death. We all know that this took place that all could choose God and receive eternal life.
* Rom 1:19-20 – Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 20) For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
* God altered their life expectancy because of evil: Gen 6:3 altered it to 120 years and then in Ps 90:9-10 – For all our days have declined in Your fury; We have finished our years like a sigh. 10) As for the days of our life, they contain seventy years, Or if due to strength, eighty years, Yet their pride is but labor and sorrow; For soon it is gone and we fly away. (Average life exp. 78.7 yrs)
* God removed them from the garden and cut them off from the tree of life, assuring our death. Rom 5:12 – Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned.(This is both physical and spiritual death.)
* Mankind was originally created to subdue and rule the earth.
* Gen 1:28 – And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
* Adam and Eve relinquished mankinds rule: Rom 6:20-21 – For when you were “slaves of sin”, you were free in regard to righteousness. 21) What fruit did you have then in the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death.
* There can be no real dominion when all mankind became slaves to sin. There appears to be, but it is only the deceitfulness of sin working within them that deceives and deludes those blinded by sin.
* It is by default the devil became the ruler of the world and all mankind became subjects or pawns of sin and the devil, keeping unbelievers and even believers under his control.
* Matt 4:8-9 – The devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. 9) And he said to Him, “All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.”
* Ps 24:1-2 – The earth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness, The world and those who dwell therein. (In principle God ultimately rules over the affairs of all, but there is a legal precedence that He must follow because of His word.)
* Slaves don’t become rulers, they become slaves of what holds them captive, to sin and death and the devil to retain them in bondage.
* The devil is the overlord of the world ruling with authority and power.
* Eph 6:12-13 – For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
* The word used for power (exousia) meaning authority to rule. (Luke 10:18-19 – And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. 19) Behold, I give unto you power (exousia) to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.)
* Only in the Spirit can Christians rule on earth over the works of the devil.
* 2 Cor 4:4 – In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
* John 14:30 – I will no longer talk much with you, for the ruler of this world is coming, and he has nothing in Me.
* Rev 12:12 – Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time.”
* It is a woe to those not willing to suffer their flesh while at the same time the Spirit within us is teaching us how to put the devil under our feet.
* Rom 8:36-37 – As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. 37) Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
* We are conquerors only in walking out our death, as a living sacrifice, by the Spirit of grace and truth.
* Rom 8:13 – For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
* Jer 17:9 – “The heart is more deceitful than all else and is desperately sick; Who can understand it?
* In these days there is no place for spiritual lethergy and ease for the Christian, it will kill us..
* John 10:10 – The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
* Sin, brought death to all mankind. It altered our DNA to bring our death and connected the receptors of over 100 trillion cells in us to a world system ruled by the devil to accomplish it. This connection brought forth forces of darkness to bring forth sickness, disease and every malady known to mankind, with calamity, and great evil and wickedness to kill us.
* What we speak, what we watch, what we hear, and we eat and take into our bodies, and the actions that come forth out of us can continue the death process in us or result in life and it more abundantly.
* 1 John 2:16-17 – For all that is in the world — the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life — is not of the Father but is of the world. 17) And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.
* There are things being done today to foods and drugs that is coming from a anti Christ spirit on earth that is trying to speed up the death and destruction of mankind, because he knows his time is short.
* Remember, Rev 12:12 – Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.
* Aspertame sweetner is the most dangerous food additive on the market today. It has caused tens of thousands of deaths in this nation and the FDA is linked to the maker and distributer of it. Our government which knows about it will do nothing about it. It is used in over 9000 products that most ingest daily in our nation and throughout the world. (Aspertane is known to cause brain cancer, birth defects, diabetes, emotional disorders, epilepsy/seizures, depression and much, much more) Aspertame foods do not have to be labeled , but many are; label must have atleast “phenylalanine” on it. Secondly America is being overdosed with sodium poinsonig and nobody does a thing about. We co-labor with Palmetto Project to intervene in peoples lives in our area that are at great risk of heart disease. A major part of that intervention is relaying the importances of a proper diet. The incredients in processed foods in America is the reason for most sickness in America.
* The corruption in this nation, allowing such additives to be added to our foods and the fallen nature of mankind will cause tens of thousands of Americans to die yearly. Sadly the ultimate blame is upon those eating the food and subject to food addictions and qlutony. The devil is just carrying out God’s warning in the garden, “if you eat of the fruit the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall surely die.” This is just the tip of the iceburg in America and throughout the world . Do an internet serch on GMO’s – Genetically Modified Organisms; it is literally a virus in a seed, that spreads throughout the land meant to take control of all crops and eventually kill those eating it. Those making this food have a motto, “those who control the food control the world.” It is an anti-christ spirit in the world today
* 2 Tim 3:13 – But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
* Here’s the real problem with most people, even Christians; They can’t stop ingesting these foods and drinks because they are addicted to them through their receptors. It’s like cigarettes; even knowing the danger they can’t stop.
* THE QUESTION: DO WE REALLY BELIEVE GOD WILL KEEP HEALING AND SAVING US FROM OUR OWN BAD HABITS THAT MAKE US SICK AND DEPRESSED WHEN THROUGH HIS GRACE AND POWER WE CAN BE SET FREE FROM THESE SELF INFLICTED ATTACKS FROM THE DEVIL?
* 2 Tim 1:7 – For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and discipline.
* God desires that we be a healthy witnesses of His presence in our lives, with His DNA working in us giving us energy and vitality, for we are His body, His flesh and His bones.
* Rom 5:20-21- Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: 21) That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.
* Grace is not an excuse to continue to sin, it is the the power to escape the power and sin and decietful lust the blind believers and unbelievers alike.
* Heb 4:16 – Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
* This kind of grace must be sought after as if in desperation to escape our on blindless and deceitful lusts holding on within us.
* Luke 18:7-8 – And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? 8) I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?
* WILL HE REALLY FIND FAITH IN YOU WHEN HE COMES?
