Then God commanded: 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 you eat of it you shall surely die. And Adam and Eve were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
But Satan appeared on the scene… • The devil • A deceiver • Our adversary • The father of all lies • Chief of fallen angels • The prince of this world • Poses as an angel of light • He wants to take you to HIS destination - HELL
Satan attacked by sowing doubt… Has God REALLY said, “You shall NOT eat of EVERY tree…?” At first, Eve resisted… We may eat of the trees in the garden, but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, “You shall not eat it - nor shall you touch it - lest you die.”
But Satan persisted… You will NOT surely die! For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.
And Eve was deceived So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, She took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband, and he ate. Disaster struck the human race…
Adam & Eve ate of the fruit And sin entered the world
Sin evoked God’s judgment And separated sinners from God
And so sin entered the world, and death through sin. And death spread to all men, because all sinned. Genesis Chapters 2 & 3 The wages of sin is death! And the consequence…
Even today… • NO ONE is right with God • not even one – • FOR ALL HAVE SINNED • And come short • of the glory of God. • Romans 3:10,23 Is there a way back to God?
God Provided a Rescue Operation He sent His Son to pay the penalty for our sins And the consequence…
God loves you! He wants you to know the truth But Satan hates you and does not want you to believe this!
Jesus said: Broad is the way that leads to destruction and there are many who go in by it. Narrow is the way which leads to life and there are few who find it. (Matthew 7:14)
Jesus said… I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. If you trust Jesus, you can escape eternal death!
Your life depends on it! Eternally!! The End Margaret Lepke ~ www.HeartbeatPresentations.org
