This Week's Sermon ( 6-27-17 )

" Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me. "   Psalm 51:5

David said we are born in sin.

Most people do not believe what David said here and prefer to believe that only after we are born, as we grow, we later then, become sinners.

If you believe Adam and Eve existed, as many do not, they were created to have an eternal relationship with God and would have lived forever as they were.

They had a relationship with God that was everlasting because they knew no sin and did not commit sin...as of yet, anyway.

They later disobeyed God's command not to eat of a certain tree.

Eve listened to satan rather than God and was deceived by satan and did eat of the tree God told them not to eat of.

Paul said;

 " For Adam was first formed, then Eve. 

And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. "   

1 Timothy 2:13-14

When this act of disobedience happened, God's first human beings spiritually became separated from Him for all eternity.

Ever since, every human being that has ever been born to this present day is born in sin and is eternally separated from God.

Many people prefer to believe all human beings are children of God at birth and consequently believe all human beings will eventually end up in Heaven.

Not so.

According to the Holy Bible only those who believe in Jesus become children of God and that is only by adoption.

Technically, Jesus is literally the only flesh and blood born, only begotten Son of God. 

Not us.

Jesus declared;

" For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. "   John 3:16

Jesus did say;

only begotten Son, "

This does not include us.

Jesus is literally the only son of God by physical birth.

Paul said;

" For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. 
For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. 
The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: 
And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.  "   Romans 8:14-17

" And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body. "   Romans 8:23

After Eve's transgression, the human race became separated from God eternally and is in need to be saved from eternal hell and to be restored back to God as it was before Eve's transgression.

All human beings are in need to be saved.

There is only one way for us to be saved and redeemed back to God...not multiple ways.

I will continue this soon.
