WELCOME BACK FAMILY, WE’RE ARE SO GLAD TO HAVE YOU HERE ONCE AGAIN. HERE WE ARE DIVING INTO THE WORD, TO DISCOVER WHO WE ARE IN CHRIST JESUS; GOD’S PLANS FOR US. WOW, WE’VE HAD A WONDERFUL TIME SO FAR, AND WE’RE STILL ON THE TOPIC ”WHY IN THE WORLD DID JESUS COME?”, AND THE FALL OF ADAM. AND WE ARE SO GLAD TO HAVE YOU ON BOARD.
ANYWAY, IF YOU ARE JOINING US FOR THE FIRST TIME, WELL, WELCOME TO THE FAMILY. MAKE YOURSELF AT HOME. AND WHILE YOU’RE AT IT, YOU CAN ALSO CHECK OUT OUR COMMUNITY LOBBY, AND THE H.J SHOWS. WE WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU.
LET’S GET STARTED
SO, WHY IN THE WORLD DID JESUS COME? WHY DID HE COME FOR ME? WE’VE GONE ALL THE WAY BACK TO GENESIS, BACK TO CREATION. WHEN GOD MADE THE WORLD, EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT. THERE WAS NO CORRUPTION IN GOD’S CREATION.
GENESIS 1: 31
31 And God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
LISTEN, IN 1 JOHN 1: 5 THE BIBLE DECLARES THAT GOD IS LIGHT AND IN HIM THERE IS NO DARKNESS AT ALL. THEREFORE, IF THERE WAS DARKNESS IN GOD’S CREATION, HE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN PLEASED WITH IT. SO ACCORDING TO GOD’S STANDARD AND CRITERIA, THERE WAS NO FLAW IN WHAT HE MADE. EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT, INCLUDING MAN.
THE REBELLION OF THE DEVIL
HOWEVER, AFTER CREATION, SOMETHING HAPPENED IN HEAVEN. THE DEVIL OVERSTEPPED HIS BOUNDARIES; HE TRIED TO TAKE WHAT WAS NOT HIS. PRIDE ENTERED HIS HEART, HE REBELLED AGAINST GOD AND WAS BANISHED FROM HEAVEN.
SATAN WAS CAST DOWN TO EARTH.
REVELATION 12: 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.
YOU SEE, THE DEVIL KNOWS HIS END. HE KNOWS THAT HE’S GOING TO END UP IN THE LAKE OF FIRE, AND HE WANTS TO PULL AS MANY PEOPLE DOWN WITH HIM. THE BIBLE DECLARES THAT THE DEVIL CAME ANGRY, KNOWING THAT HE HAS LITTLE TIME. WHEN HE CAME TO EARTH, HE FOUND ADAM AND EVE IN THE GARDEN. SO, HE POSSESSED A SERPENT AND BEGUILED EVE. HE ENTERED A SERPENT, AND ASKED EVE THIS QUESTION (PARAPHRASING GENESIS 3: 1)
“DID GOD REALLY TELL YOU GUYS NOT TO EAT FROM ANY TREE IN THE GARDEN?”
AND EVE SAID
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.
MASTER OF DECEPTION
BEFORE WE CONTINUE, I WANT YOU NOTICE SOMETHING ABOUT THE CHARACTER OF THE DEVIL; HIS STRATAGEM. SATAN KNEW WHERE HE WAS GOING TO, BUT HE DIDN’T GO THERE DIRECTLY. OTHERWISE, EVE WOULD HAVE BEEN SUSPICIOUS. AS SHE WAS TRYING TO EXPLAIN THINGS TO HIM, HE SAID
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.
HE GAVE HER SOME PORTION OF THE TRUTH, BUT HE MIXED SOME LIES IN THERE. HE TOLD HER THAT SHE WOULD NOT SURELY DIE, THAT WAS THE FIRST LIE. EVE DIDN’T KNOW THE CONSEQUENCES OF HER DISOBEDIENCE; ALL SHE KNEW WAS “THE GOOD NEWS” THE DEVIL HAD PRESENTED TO HER. SO SHE ATE, AND SHE GAVE SOME TO ADAM. WHEN ADAM ATE, HE SINNED AGAINST GOD.
THAT WAS WHEN MAN FELL. THERE WAS NOW A GAP BETWEEN GOD AND MAN.

ON WE GO…..
WE’RE TALKING ABOUT WHY JESUS CAME.
YOU’WE REALLY GOT TO UNDERSTAND THIS, SO THAT YOU CAN UNDERSTAND WHY IT IS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY TO RECEIVE THE SALVATION GIFT THAT JESUS CHRIST GIVES US.
GENESIS 3: 7 – 11
7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons. 8 And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.
9 And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou? 10 And he said I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself. 11 And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?
THE BLAME GAME: MAN’S MISTAKE
DID YOU SEE THE SCRIPTURE ABOVE? GOD KNEW ALL ALONG, BUT HE WAS JUST PLAYING ALONG WITH ADAM. HE KNEW WHERE ADAM WAS!!!!! BUT I BELIEVE THAT GOD WAS GIVING ADAM AN OPPORTUNITY TO REDEEM HIMSELF. I BELIEVE IF ADAM HAD ACTUALLY COME BEFORE GOD AND SAID
“LORD I’M SORRY, I DISOBEYED YOU AND I ATE. AND I NEED YOUR HELP; I NEED YOUR FORGIVENESS.”
IF ADAM HAD OWNED UP,I BELIEVE THE PUNISHMENT WOULD HAVE BEEN LESS SEVERE. GOD COULD HAVE EVEN BEEN ABLE TO REDEEM ADAM, RIGHT THERE AND THEN.
HOWEVER, ADAM DIDN’T OWN UP. INSTEAD OF COMING BACK TO GOD (BECAUSE HE WAS WITH GOD BEFORE), ADAM RAN FURTHER AWAY FROM GOD. ADAM RAN INTO THE TREES. CAN YOU IMAGINE THAT? WAS HE THINKING THAT GOD COULDN’T SEE HIM IN HIS HIDING PLACE? HE TOLD GOD “I WAS AFRAID BECAUSE I WAS NAKED”, AND GOD “REALIZED” THAT SOMETHING WAS WRONG. ADAM AND EVE WERE CREATED PURE. THEY WERE NOT SUPPOSED TO KNOW WHAT NAKEDNESS MEANT. SO GOD ASKED HIM
ADAM COULD HAVE SAID “LORD I’M SORRY.”
HE COULD HAVE SAID “LORD, HAVE MERCY.”
OR PERHAPS; “LORD, FORGIVE ME!!!!! I REGRET WHAT I’VE DONE.”
WHAT DID ADAM SAY?
The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.
HE SAID, “IT WAS THE WOMAN THAT YOU GAVE ME. SHE MADE ME DO IT.”
IN OTHER WORDS, HE WAS INDIRECTLY ACCUSING GOD AND EVE. WHAT HE WAS BASICALLY SAYING WAS
“IF I WAS HERE ON MY OWN ALONE, I WOULD HAVE BEEN OK. BUT YOU GAVE ME THIS WOMAN, AND SHE GAVE ME THIS FRUIT. SO IT’S BASICALLY YOU FAULT.”
ADAM BLAMED EVE, AND GOD.
JUDGEMENT AGAINST THE DEVIL
14 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…..
PAUSE THERE, AND CONSIDER THIS: “WHY DIDN’T GOD ASK THE SERPENT/ DEVIL THE QUESTION HE ASKED ADAM AND EVE? BECAUSE THE SERPENT, THERE, WAS SYMBOLIC FOR THE DEVIL. IT WAS SYMBOLIC FOR LUCIFER THAT GREAT DRAGON WHO TRIED TO CORRUPT ALL THE ANGELS IN HEAVEN. SO, GOD DIDN’T HAVE TO ASK HIM QUESTIONS; HE KNEW HIS HISTORY.
NOT ONLY DID GOD KNOW THE DEVIL’S HISTORY, HE ALSO KNEW THAT HE WAS THE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SPIRITUAL FOR THE FALL OF MAN. HE INCITED THE DESIRE IN EVE’S MIND. GOD WAS NOT READY FOR ANY MORE OF HIS LIES. SO, GOD TOLD HIM:
“YOU KNOW WHAT, I’M GOING TO DEAL WITH YOU SEVERELY. I’LL MAKE YOU PAY FOR THIS.”
THE PRICE OF DISOBEDIENCE
CONSEQUENTLY, FROM THE DISOBEDIENCE OF ADAM, SIN CAME INTO THE WORLD.
GOD TOLD ADAM “YOU’RE SINFUL. I CAN’T LET YOU DWELL IN MY PRESENCE ANYMORE. I’M HOLY AND YOU’RE SINFUL. YOU NOW IN DARKNESS, IN THE DEVIL’S DOMAIN. IN YOUR DISOBEDIENCE, YOU’VE SOLD YOURSELF TO THE DEVIL. SO, I CAN’T LET YOU STAY ANYMORE, I HAVE TO DRIVE YOU AWAY. YOU ARE NOW A CHILD OF THE DEVIL.”
THAT WAS HOW MAN WAS CAST OUT OF THE GARDEN OF EDEN.
BUT LET ME ASK YOU A QUESTION. GOD SAID “YOU WOULD DIE THAT VERY SAME DAY.” BUT ADAM LIVED TO BE 930 YEARS OLD; SO WAS GOD LYING?
THINK ABOUT IT, AND PLEASE SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS, AND OPINIONS, WITH US IN THE COMMENT SECTION BELOW. WE WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU.
TELL US WHAT YOU THINK; WAS GOD LYING?
YOU NEVER KNOW, YOU MIGHT JUST BE THE ANSWER TO SOMEBODY’S UNASKED QUESTION; THAT’S THE JOY OF THE COMMUNITY.
WE’LL TALK ABOUT IT, AND MORE, IN OUR NEXT VIDEO.
TILL THEN, WALK IN LOVE, AND GOD BLESS YOU.
