Introduction: In order to accept the "good news of of salvation, people must first realize their sin which is the work of the holy spirit and not ours and then they will see the need for a saviour.
FELLOWSIDP BETWEEN GOD AND MAN IN THE BEGINNING
a. GOD CREATED MAN IN HIS IMAGE - means man has the spirit part, that which as able to communicate with God. Gen 1:27
b. GOD WOULD VISIT MAN IN EDEN. [KJV] Genesis 3:8 And they heard the voice of YEHOVA God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of Yehova God amongst the trees of the garden.
FELLOWSHlP BROKEN WHEN MAN SINNED AGAINST GOD
God provided for all the needs of man. But he also gave them command not to eat of the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good
and evil. (Gen 2:16) But Adam and Eve disobeyed & sinned against God. When God visited them in the Garden, they were ashamed and tried to hide themselves from God. (Gen 3:8b). Then God drove them out of the Garden of Eden. The fellowship was broken.
THE RESULTS OF THE FIRST SIN ON THE HUMAN RACE What came into the heart of Adam & Eve after they sinned? a. GUILT- being aware they have violated God & His law, they hid from God b. FEAR- because they God rightly have something against them. c. DEATH- Sin brought death! Rom.6:23. Death as a result of sin
State of separation: man's spirit became dead towards God, even if he is physically alive - ' you were dead in your transgressions and sins' .Eph 2:1
Eternal separation from God (Who is God) - ' it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment. Heb 9:27.
'He will punish those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Yeshua. They will be punished with everlasting destruction and shut out from the presence of יהוה YEHOVA and from the majesty of his power'. 2 Th 1:8-9
d. CONDEMNATION- 'under God's wrath'- already condemned. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son. John 3:18
a. WE ARE BORN WITII A SINFUL NATURE- 'All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our sinful nature and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature objects of wrath. Eph.2:3
b. WE ARE GUlLTY- Because of our sinful nature, we sin, and so we are guilty and deserving punishment.
c. WE ARE BOUND - under the control of sin. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do;no, the evil I do not want to do - this I keep on doing. Rom 7:18-19
All flesh had their lives given up to the sons of God (fallen angels) and were and mixed with them. They overcame their genetical differencies by technology and the outcome was babies that became giants and other upnormal beings that rebelled against God. Wars killed a big part of mankind and after all they made war against each other so that the prophecy of Enoch was fulfilled that the fallen angels should see the slaughter of their children. En 10:13 To Gabriel also the Lord said, Go to the bastards, to the reprobates, to the children of fornication; and destroy the children of fornication, the offspring of the Watchers (sons of God), from among men; bring them forth, and excite them one against another. Let them perish by mutual slaughter; for length of days shall not be theirs. The spirits of these earthborn slaughtered children of the sons of God became restless on earth and are now the devils bothering us. We find this in the book of Enoch that was early taken out of the bible by the Roman church. Still we find several quotes from it in other parts of the bible which confirms that is was in the time of Yeshua a normal scroll in every synagogue.
WE CANNOT SAVE OURSELVES FROM HELL - WE NEED A saviour the one that brings us into Heaven as a real child of GOD.
