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.

Today's Bible Verse 1 Thessalonians 1:5

" For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake. "

Today's Bible Verse Ephesians 4:8-16

" Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. 
(Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? 
He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.) 
And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 
For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 
Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: 
That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; 
But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: 
From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love. "
