Greetings in the name of my Master, Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Today man has decided he does not need God in his life to tell him what to do or how to live, but in the beginning it was not so. Today children don’t obey parents, most parents don’t obey authority and man doesn’t obey God.
GENESIS 3, verse 1: Now the serpent was more subtle (clever) 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? (Do you really believe God said that?).
Verse 2: And the woman said unto the serpent, we may eat of the fruit of the garden:
Verse 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.
Verse 4: And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
Verse 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.
Verse 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 to her husband, and he did eat. (The word is fruit, not sex, most people kept saying it was sex; the Bible said fruit). Say what God say, not what man says.
Verse, 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.
Before they disobeyed God they were not ashamed to be naked. After they disobeyed, they became ashamed. That’s just like you and I. When some of us are tempted we never call on God first, it’s after we have sinned, and that’s when we call on him.
Man/woman don’t want God in their life, but the minute he/she gets into trouble they call on God, not knowing that if he/she is not living for God he isn’t going to answer them.
If you are not living your life for God through his son Jesus, there is no need to praise, thank or call on him, etc, because he is not going to answer you. You must be born again for God to answer you.
JOHN 3, verse 3: Jesus answered and said unto him, verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Jesus Christ is the bridge to God; we cannot go to God on our own. We are too filthy (dirty). Man does not find God, for God is not lost. God finds man because man is lost. The end is near my people.
1 THESSALONIANS, 5:2 – For yourself know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh upon them as a thief in the night. (Death is a thief, it comes when we least expect).
Verse, 3 – For when they shall say peace and safety, then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail (pain) upon a woman with child and they shall not escape.
So my friends if you are not living your life for Christ, now is the time to repent of your sins and start your new life for God.
My friend the time is at hand let Christ into your life. May God through his son Christ Jesus keep blessing Dominica.
