POWER OF SIN

Bible-in OneYear- Day 2 (January 2)

Genesis 4-6

In Genesis 3, we saw how man fell through sin against God. We talked about how Satan negotiated for the serpent’s earth body to deceive man. Eve assumed the serpent to be just one of the animals she was taking care of, not knowing that Satan had negotiated for the body. We need to be very careful of wrong assumptions this year.

1 John 4:1 “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.”

Believing foul spirit caused man to fall for sin. Beloved, that evil spirit is still talking today. It is your duty to learn to recognize the source of the voice you are hear. The scripture says there are many voices and all of them have specifics to identify the source.

1 Corinthians 14:10There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification.”

The personality that spoke to deceive Eve, was the same personality that spoke to Jesus through the serpent and Peter in the New Testament.

Matthew 16:23 “But he turned, and said to Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan; thou art an offense to me: for thou savorest not the things that are of God, but those that are of men.”

It appeared to Eve as a serpent but used the mouth of Peter to Jesus. As at the time it interacted with Eve, the enemy had no access to human being then.  But through its success in Gen 3, access was gained into human beings. It may not necessarily lie but could have a great influence. Eve could not resist the suggestion of Satan in the serpent, but it was recognized and resisted when it appeared to Jesus in Luke 4. The motive of its seeming truth must always be weighed and viewed in line with the Word of God.

The transaction in Chapter 3 locked up evil in man as power of sin. This power of sin is the root of all other sins. The power of sin worked in Cain against Abel in chapter 4.

  1. Anger
  2. Envy
  3. Hate
  4. Murder
  5. Lie
  6. Indifference

All these sponsored by the Power of sin.

Genesis 4:7 “… and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. …”.

Before chapter 3, men never needed to call upon the Lord because God was always visiting anyway. But the moment the spirit of man became dead to God and he was driven out of the Garden of Eden, he felt his emptiness and started seeking the supernatural. There is a place within us that is to touch the supernatural. That part is our spirit. If the spirit is not revived, the soul touches the dark world. This is how a person is possessed; the soul interacting with the dark world. Your spirit does not do that; it only touches God if alive. That is the part we use to relate with Him. Men began to try to contact God in the time of Seth, the junior brother of Abel.

Genesis 4:7If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.”

The gruesome sin that displeased God was when men began to conceive for spirits (sons of God). Spiritual immorality increased, and more demonic beings increased.

Genesis 6:2That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.”

Evil spread over the earth. Wickedness became the order of the day; witch craft at high level and God concluded to destroy the inhabitants of the earth.

Genesis 6:2That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.”

As we discussed in the previous reading, God still need somebody of earth body to carry out His agenda. In Chapter 6, one with good grade of righteousness was chosen, the person of Noah.

Genesis 6:2That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.”

May you find grace in the eyes of the Lord in Jesus name. Amen.
