What Happened in the Garden of Eden? Part 5
What are the wages of sin? Through inspiration, the apostle Paul tells us: “the wages of sin is death.” Romans 6:23 Did Adam’s sin bring about physical death? Most never think it otherwise. What does the scripture teach? “wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: For until the law, sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law.” Romans 5:12-13 Any time you see therefore or wherefore in the written Book, you always remember that it is saying, “and because of this”! Now, because of what? Look at verse 11 of Romans 5. “We joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.” The at one ment with God has been affected by the blood of Jesus Christ, we are saved by His blood!!
If sin causes physical death, why do the sinless die? Here, comes the “inborn sin” of the denominationalists. Can I ask you a question? What animals or plants Christ created of this Earth, do not die? Do they inherit sin? Is not death an announcement that NOTHING from or of this planet will survive this planet? Is this not what Enoch preached some 5,000 years, ago? By the way, did Enoch die? Did Enoch sin? Understanding that sin is the transgression of the Law of God, no one can become a sinner (notice the word become, you become what you are not!) until they transgress, violate, go beyond the commands of, or come short of the Law’s demands!! One could not become if they were born, sinners!! Did they sin? Did they inherit the sin of Adam?? Is death just a means of population control or when people talk about the results of Adam’s disobedience are they not talking about another death-spiritual death?
Which natures created, other than man, is not of or made from this planet, do not die? Can something exist on this earth and not be made from this Earth? No, I am not talking about extra-terrestrial, they are someone’s allusion! I am talking about beings who, like man, are composed of substance, anatomy, nature, that are also not made from something of this Earth. One of these beings are angels. They are the other spirit beings made by Christ before He made man. Made, by the way, for the service He demands to His children, those who had sinned and those who had not sinned, before there was such a thing as sin!! (It would greatly help His blood-bought children to see themselves as, like the angels, not of this Earth!!- Philippians 3:20) Did sin not come into the angelic nature before it came to humanity? Did all angels inherit Satan’s sin? Can Satan pray to God? Spirits die when they lose the fellowship of God. Man and angels are eternal. Angels do not have bodies of flesh but can be separated from God and be lost?? Satan got past Eve by speaking of her physical anatomy!! Eve was deceived and not charged with sin, you and I know better when we forget our soul and spirit came from Christ!! Hebrews 12:9
Do not spirit beings influence and control inferior natures? Can spirits take over control the flesh?? Can more than one spirit live in a human body?? Successful parents succeed when by physical punish, but when they can demand the obedience of their spirits they gain their trust and are worthy of honor! Do not women who are weaker physically but stronger spiritually govern the house many times? Do not feel so unduly aggravated with Eve when, like ourselves, she went up against an arch-angel and was so easily out-thought and over-matched!! Why has “God given His Spirit to all them that obey Him”? Acts 5:32 “Of what a man is overcome, of the same is he brought into bondage”!! 2 Peter 2:19 Man, in the flesh, is fair game for Satan unless the Spirit of God is residing on the throne room of his heart!! Adam was charged with the sin, not Eve!
