NEW CREATION NUGGETS.
UNDERSTANDING OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.
QUIZ: THE FALL OF MAN CAME WITH SEVERAL EFFECTS. DISCUSS IN DETAIL THREE EFFECTS OF THE FALL OF MAN.
God created man “Adam” and was put in the Garden of Eden. God gave Adam instructions, “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.” Genesis 2: 17.
But Satan came and deceived man, and man willingly disobeyed God and obeyed the devil, thereby committing high treason.
What is high treason?
High treason is willfully disobeying God. It is a crime of disloyalty. An example of an ambassador going against the authority of his country. It’s like selling one’s country to the enemy. This transgression brought a lot of effects on man, and the entire humanity. We are going to be looking at, at least three of the effects of Adam and Eve’s actions
THREE EFFECTS OF THE FALL OF MAN:
1.MAN BECOMING A SINNER: As a result of Adam and Eve’s disobedience, disloyalty, or high treason, sin entered the world. From that very moment, every man or child born into this world, by a woman automatically becomes a sinner. The gene of man was corrupted, and hereditary sin was passed to man.
Romans 5:12 “Therefore, just as through one-man sin, and thus death spread to all men because all sinned.”
2.SLAVERY: The entire humanity became a slave to the devil: we were subject to sickness and disease, pains and even death.
Genesis 3: 17-19.
17. Then to Adam He said, “Because you have heeded the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree of which I commanded you, saying, “you shall not eat of it”: Cursed is the ground for your sake; In toil you shall of it All the days of your life. 18. Both thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you, And you shall eat the herb of your field. 19. 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 return.
Man gave the devil to power to be in charge of the world to the devil. Thereby making the devil to be the ruler of the world. a
3.FELLOWSHIP WITH GOD: Man lost his fellowship with God. Genesis 3:8 “And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in a cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden.” This explains how God lost that relationship with man as He came to fellowship with Adam and Eve. The man could no longer have that communion with God. Man lost everything.
