Man created Immortal
Made in GOD’s image, mankind was originally created immortal. Although this was lost, it has also been restored because GOD’s will always wins.
Part of the curse that GOD laid upon man was mortality
“In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread
Till you return to the ground,
For out of it you were taken;
For dust you are,
And to dust you shall return.”” (Genesis 3:19)
Preparing the Bride for GOD’s Story
How do we prepare as the Bride of Christ? One aspect is to learn GOD’S STORY. He created us in His image…. Piece by piece, and peace by peace, we learn to walk as He has walked. And we learn His perspective.
Today we’ll see that GOD’s will always wins. How?
Man became mortal
With the rebellion, the fall, the sin of Adam: which ever way you choose to label it, man lost his immortality when he ate of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
Genesis 3:22b-23 reads,
““And now, lest he put out his hand and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever”— therefore the Lord God sent him out of the garden of Eden to till the ground from which he was taken.”
GOD cast Adam and Eve from the garden in order to prevent them eating from the tree of life. Did that mean GOD didn’t want man to have life forever?
As a consequence of Adam’s sin, all of humanity lost physical immortality, inheriting the same consequences. All born from Adam, we all have inherited mortality.
…. But then comes Jesus who offers us eternal life once again.
Salvation from Jesus gives us eternal life… again
Not only was Jesus born free from sin, but through faith in Him, we inherit eternal life.
Although all are born into mortality — eternal life is through Jesus.
GOD’s will is done
GOD created humanity in His image, immortal. This was and is His will for us. His will ultimately is done as He offers salvation to those who choose it, through faith in His son’s death and resurrection. It is a huge cost which GOD bore, and yet, it was and is in His will.
No matter what’s Satan tries, GOD has His ultimate way forward, and the ultimate victory, always. Hallelujah!
So we can move forward in all our circumstances, knowing GOD wins, always.
