Gods Salvation Because of Adam and Eves Fall From the Garden of Eden
Salvation came because of Adam and Eve falling from the garden and God sending us a deliverer..
(Exploring the reason why we need salvation.)
Adam and Eve. The First Humans. Started out in Paradise, in a blissful garden. Choices they made ended us all up in the earthly domain of life. Subject to heat and cold, Hunger and thirst, Temptation. Working by the sweat of the brow. Pain and sorrow. Labor in giving birth. Separated from God. But God made a covenant with Adam, that HE, GOD in 5,500 years would come to earth, and be condemned to death by kings, so that through his offering of blood for the sins of mankind, Adam and all his seed after him would have opportunity to re-enter the presence of God through the Death Burial and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. In the interlude, many generations have come and gone, many civilizations have stood and fallen. Many individuals, both men and women, have been called by God to serve in his kingdom. The tools of Gods kingdom are established on faith of the believer in Gods Word.
The Power of God is based on his living word. Jesus was the living bread that came down from heaven. The Spirit of God is the Living Water that flows on this side of Golgotha. Yes, we can have some of the promises that Holy God made to Adam. The Gift of God in Salvation at the Cross established a new kingdom, in which, though we still live in fleshly bodies, we now have access to heavenly gifts. In his word God states that his blood would flow out upon the bones of Adam at Golgotha. Did Adams bones get carried upon the Ark in Noah's day, and be buried at Golgatha's Hill? That is what archeologists are saying. and I will put my faith upon Gods word that it is so.
Adam sinned causing his expulsion from the garden of Eden along with Eve. Even so, God so loved Adam that he determined to redeem him to the garden through God himself becoming the redeemer. Hebrews refers to Jesus as the second Adam, leading us back into the Garden and Gods presence. Do you know what life and truth is really about? It is about escaping from the liar and deceiver of all mankind, Satan. Satan took Gods most precious creation away from him. God loved Adam and Eve. If God had not acted to show Adam a new covenant, Adam may have died and we might not be here today. In the process, God challenged Adam and Eve and asked him over and over, Did Satan give you all he promised? Of course not! God went to Adam and showed him mercy, and showed him how he would save him in the end, but most importantly, Adam was sorrowful. Adam did cry out to God at the gate of Eden, God Please have mercy, and please restore us to your presence! Yes he did! And God listened and was merciful!
It is about having Eternal Life In Jesus Christ and being born again with him in baptism unto a new life. It is about being reclaimed unto God as an heir to his kingdom. All we do in this life is vanity, if we do not accept these teachings and follow his salvation plan. Much of modern technology is based on Satan's kingdom of darkness and depending on mans knowledge. The problem with that, it is so much lower and less than the light and knowledge of God. God proved it when he asked Adam, "why doesn't Satan give you all that he promised you, when he tempted you to eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil?" The simple and only answer was sin brought Adam into suffering and grief, not into Godhood as Satan declared he would. Satan can only lead you to destruction and departure from God.
In Adams plight of sin, God devised a plan of divine redemption to restore Adam and Eve, and every one who will, back into his presence. John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whoever believes in him should not perish , but have everlasting life." Jesus said, "behold I am the light of the world. a city that is set upon a hill cannot be hid." Peter the Apostle said "beloved now are ye the sons of God." We may have been born the sons of man, but through Jesus lifeblood, we can become the Sons and Daughters of Almighty God and have access to those living waters. One last thing, Adam and Eve changed from a bright spiritual nature when they left the garden into an earthy state. Now they had need of earthly food and drink. But they knew that it was different. they knew the water was different even outside the garden. They could no longer physically see the angels and beings of heaven (unless God specifically showed them, as it is with us now). Their eyes were darkened to spiritual things. God spoke to Adam that it would be so, until Satan was defeated in Jesus Death and resurrection. That living waters would flow after Jesus descended into hell and took the keys to the kingdom, defeating death, hell and the grave. Today, we are witnesses of living water and of spiritual renewal purchased by Gods salvation action at Calvary. Of his death on the cross, His burial and Resurrection, and of his ascension back into Glory. Acts 1:1-8
But the Word of God says, in 2 Thes. 4: "But ye shall be changed, in a moment in a twinkling of an eye, ye shall be like him.. ye shall be caught up together to meet the Lord in the sky." We shall be re-united with our God, with Adam and Eve. we shall have life eternal in the heavens. But know this, if you do nothing, Satan already has you as his servant of darkness. We are born in sin and shaped in iniquity. Psalms 51-5
Only if we repent of evil, "God, I am sorry for my sins", and turn to the Living God.(Jesus said I am the way, the truth and the life") Confess Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Receive baptism into the body of Christ, in his name; Receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. Romans 6, Acts 2, Luke 24. Don't just read one portion, but all of Gods word leads us to his divine salvation. "All scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable.." 2 Tim. 3:16
Paul said it all when he said, "I count all things but loss, if I don't have Christ." Phil 3:8 : Jesus said, "without me you can do nothing" John 15:5
By not knowing what our salvation is to us, it is Satan's strategy to keep millions from being saved. He will do anything to keep a soul out of Gods presence. Jehovah said "my people are destroyed for lack of knowledge." Hosea 4:6: It is so critical that we share the Gospel message, "for this gospel will be preached unto the entire world, and then shall the end come." Matt: 24-14
Jesus said to his disciples: “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which someone found and hid; then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field." Matt: 13-44-46
In my theological studies, I have come to believe we were withheld some important information. History declares that the Lost Books were part of the written bible before the 1800's. They were excluded when our modern bibles were copied and sent to the North American Continent. Church leaders and printers of the Bible together decided that the center section, the Apocolypse was no longer necessary to have within the modern bible. It was considered outdated, and too costly to print. So we got gypped out of having the rest of the bible due to bible printing budgets of that day, as well as the presumption of church leaders that it wasn't any longer necessary to include within the biblical text. Even though, the bibles in England and throughout Europe printed prior to 1800 were inclusive of having the middle section, the Apocalypse which included the Books of Adam and Eve, and the other books of Solomon, etc. I find this reprehensible and inconsiderate to the point of cheating us of important biblical/historical accounts of Creation and the following events of Mankind upon the Earth.
