Greetings to you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. I am going to write about Man and God, how we got saved and all that.
We will start from Genesis the beginning of the Bible and oh yes, I am a believer of the Holy Bible. 2nd Timothy 3v16-17 says, 'All scripture is given by INSPIRATION of God, and is profitable for Doctrine, for reproof, for Correction, for instruction unto Righteousness, that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.'
You see, Man is a spirit, he has a soul and he lives in a body. The spirit of a man is what makes a man because the physical body we have is actually dust. Gen 2v7, 'And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.'
God created Adam the first man alongside his wife Eve, and put him in the Garden of Eden, gave him access to everything except a particular tree. Gen 2v16-17, 'And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, "of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that eat of it you shall surely die." '........This was the instruction God gave Adam but Adam failed to carry that instruction, because he ate the fruit after Eve his wife was deceived by the devil who entered the serpent(snake) and convinced her to eat the fruit.
When Adam ate that fruit that God said he should not eat, his spirit was separated from God. You must know that God is life and anything cut off from God is dead. Physically Adam was living, but Spiritually he was dead. Death, means poverty, diseases, sorrow, lack, darkness, fear, pain, hardship etc. All these things Adam suffered from and not only him but for every man that came into this world. God punished them both (read Genesis 3v1-end)
See, something remarkable that God told the serpent in Genesis 3 v 15, 'And I will put enmity between your seed and HER SEED; He shall bruise your head and you shall bruise His heel.'
I need you to hold the this last Bible quote, we shall continue from here in the next blog update. I try not to write very long messages in one update. Stay tuned and God bless you :)
