TEST OF STRENGTH by Pastor Paul Locke for loxland.com 30/10/2015
Created in the image of God, in other words you are a clone of God, your Father in heaven. (Gen 1:27) God communed with Adam and also with us who are in fellowship with the Holy Spirit of God, the Spirit of Jesus. Jesus said, “My sheep hear my voice.” Our faith in God is imputed when we seek Him with all our heart. Sham faith in God comes from the devil in an attempt to separate you from God and is known as a Religious Spirit a demon. (Acts 17:22)
Sin is separation from God and occurred after Adam and Eve ate of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. (Gen 3:23) Doing what is right gains acceptance with God and otherwise “sin crouches at the door, it desires to have you, but you must master it.” (Gen 4:7) Now armed with knowledge man knew what sin was and must master it to be able to live in peace with God. Cain killed Abel and was cursed by God who drove him from the land.
Descended from Noah or Nephilim after the flood is the question? (Gen 6:4) Sons of God were descended from Adam and crossbreeding with humanoid Nephilim became a sin problem that caused God to flood the earth. Then later God confused their speech and scattered them into different nations and territories. (Gen 11:8) How many pairs of animal Nephilim went on the ark is not known but different kinds and sizes of people were scattered that suggests many interbred Nephilim exist today.
Cursed by sin, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Rom 3:23) The sin of Adam a generation curse falls on every child born into this world and only God can remove it. Jesus Christ, God incarnate was hung from a tree taking this curse upon him for all mankind, for all sin, and for all time. His blood was shed for the forgiveness of sin for all who believe in Him. (Jhn 3:16)
Jesus Born of the Virgin Mary makes Jesus the Son of Man and Jesus born of the Holy Spirit is the Son of God. (Jhn 1:34 & Lk 1:35) Muslims have a problem with this and Jews have the problem with Jesus being Christ a suffering servant. Ishmael and his descendants cursed by God, “He will be a wild donkey of a man; his hand will be against everyone and everyone’s hand against him and he will live in hostility toward all his brothers.” (Gen 16:12) To change, repent and receive Jesus your saviour.
