Adam & Eden

The issue of sin and death is a very delicate one. The message on sin has encountered so much controversy. There is so much that clouds the real intent and the divine motive for abstaining from sin. Not sinning because you don’t want to go to hell is just like being in a hostage situation and complying. The whole thing looks like there’s a threat you want to avoid,  hence the compliance. The children of light must dwell in light no matter what happens,  that is the life after salvation. 

John said in his epistle,  “I write unto you that no man sin,  but if any sin,  let him know that we have an advocate… Jesus Christ”. The reason for the statement is that,  you should not be a christian with bucket lists featuring sins of different breeds,  instead,  you should make a habit of living in light,  so that if at one time you fall short,  do not think of yourself as prodigal, needing to leave home,  but as loved,  needing an embrace. Not an endorsement for sin in any way. 

Like it or not, many leave the church body daily because they sinned and felt unworthy of the light anymore so decided to take strolls through life. 

When Adam sinned against God, God walked into the garden and questioned him. Adam did not speak with regret. He said, “I am naked!” The proclamation of who he now believed he already was, was a dangerous step he took. Why? The scenerio is just like an adopted son having to find out the Truth about himself will going through something and decides to leave the home he’s been always because he feels he has knowledge of who he actually is. 

The truth is that,  with this our eye Adam was naked,  but before we had this kind of eye that detected nakedness,  God didn’t want us to know about our nakedness. Now we are all adopted into being sons of God,  Paul said. And God wants us to forget what we were so he blinds our eyes with heavenly realities so that we do not find out that we were once on drugs,  in sexual sin, liars and all that. Unfortunately, the devil brings the thoughts back. The thoughts defeat us more than our acts because as a man thinketh in his heart,  so is he. 

But God, knowing that Adam knew he was naked, expected that Adam will be sorry for his actions but Adam blamed his wife,  his wife blamed the snake. And when God spoke about sending them out of the garden, Adam named his wife Eve. That’s to say, he was more concerned about his weakness and didn’t bother to lose the presence of God. 

Most Christians leave the Church because we feel we know who we are and can’t force ourselves to be Christians. We are “naked” and that’s all we can be,  that is how we think and then we leave the Church. But allow me to show you why leaving the church is not the best. 

Genesis  3:21 Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them.
God made coats of skins and clothed them. Adam was using leaves to cover himself and his wife,  but how much covering could leaves cover? God knows that we want to cover our shame, we couldn’t, so he put a new skin on us, so that we won’t find the old skin. We won’t blame ourselves anymore. Adam still did not see the love of God enough to beg for forgiveness. Most times,  we sin and God continues to bless us,  we don’t realise God’s goodness so we plead for his mercy but we walk away from his presence chest out. 

Genesis  3:22 And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:
This is what we miss when we decide to walk out of the presence of God. We lose the opportunity to eat of the tree of life and live forever. Jesus is the tree of life. Asking for forgiveness is pleading to dwell in the presence,  to stay in the fellowship. The longer you stay there,  there will be a word you’ll hear that will repair you forever! 

Don’t leave the Church! Don’t denounce your Faith in God! Press on unto the mark of the higher calling. Eternal life is available for those who have eaten from the tree of life. Don’t nullify the effects of the tree by walking out of the Faith. Stand Firm. You’ll make it to heaven without even trying.

Demons – Underground Works! 

There are times when I wonder about so many things. There are several happenings in the world in which we live that provoke deep thoughts and intense reasoning with an aim of undertanding them. 

These times,  we wake up to meet weird and absurd stories that not humane in nature. Children being slaughtered by parents, sons slaughtering parents, parents raping their children,  brothers killing their brothers, human beings kill their kind, etc. All these happenings are not normal,  at least even the strongest atheist believes they’re not normal happenings. 

A man’s actions are determined by the soul he carries. That very soul is just like a steering, though it’s the control,  it’s actually not in control. A man’s spirit controls his soul. That Spirit, which is the man himself, is also controlled by ruling spirits. 

Into the spirits ruling over a man’s spirit; a born again believer has the Holy Spirit as the ruling spirit whilst an unbeliever has cosmic powers ruling over them in spirit. For this reason,  an unbeliever will respond to whatever a cosmic authority instructs to be done, hence the coining of the phrase,  “if you go to Rome,  you do what the Romans do”.

In Ephesians 6:12 we learn something that most of the things we fight against are not of the natural. Police fights Crime, crime is seen in the natural but what causes the crime is something very serious from the spiritual realm. 

“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.”

Ephesians 6:12 KJV

This scripture tells us how organised the devil is when it comes to his mode of operation. He doesn’t Just enter the world and do things, there are forerunners who don’t break ranks. Every demon knows when it’s their turn to enter and do their job specification. 

Before any man will do something that men consider as wicked,  the person has gone through different stages of possession. When Jesus met the mad man of Gadara,  the spirit responded,  “we are many”. The reason that man could cut himself is because he has been through different levels of infestation. 

Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first.

Luke 11:26 KJV

Before a man will kill himself,  kill a loved one,  kill a random person,  rape someone,  hold malice,  blaspheme and all the likes,  that individual has been through stages of demonic possession. 

Jesus said in the above verse,  if a demon comes into a man,  he goes to bring seven other wicked demons to make the man worse than he(the first demon)  could make him. 

So an example, there is a loose demon that enters a man like a desire,  he begins to love pornographic material, another one is brought in by the first just to make the individual masturbate, that one also goes to bring in another that will move the individual into sexual immorality and it goes on and on making the individual worse until he or she loses his or her salvation(that’s if he or she has been saved) by confessing against Christ. 

There are underground demons. A lying spirit is a underground demon. These demons are those that barely look like they are demons,  they are the way pavers. They have to enter a man before other major spirits can have a way to enter. Moodiness is an underground demon. Isolation is another. Lust is also one of them. 

These demons have underground works. So subtle to be noticed. A lying spirit can tell a lady she’s not beautiful. Whenever she looks into the mirror,  she doesn’t see her beauty because her conscience has been seered. If she encounters a brokenheart situation,  she might quickly think of suicide because she thinks she is not good enough.

There are many works of the devil that can be stopped if we begin to identify these underground demons and fish them out before they invite squatters. When the house tenant(the underground demon)  is cast out,  the squatters(invited, more wicked demons) will have no choice but to leave.
