Destroying Death.

Discussion in 'Bible Study' started by CCW95A, May 23, 2014.

  1. Destroying Death

    (Genesis 2:15) And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.
    (Genesis 2:16) And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:
    (Genesis 2:17) But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

    After God created man in his own image, he commanded man not to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil or he would die. There was not anything bad contained within the tree of the knowledge of good and evil to cause death to Adam and Eve. In Chapter one God tells us,

    (Genesis 1:31) And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

    Every thing the Lord created was very good, so we see that all the trees in the garden was good for food. What was it that caused Adam and Eve's death from eating from the tree that God commanded them to not to? It was there own conscience of disobedience. Guilt is a killer, condemnation brings death to those who have it. Adam and Eve tried everything they could to try and get rid of it, by sewing fig leaves together to cover there shame, and guilt. Today those in Christ are no longer under condemnation, for ”there is no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus” (Romans 8:1) There ability to receive revelation from God ended by there disobedience. God was no longer there God as Jesus tells us in the gospels,

    (John 8:34) Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.

    The Serpent now became there lord, and God, we know this is true from the new testament,

    (2 Corinthians 4:3) But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
    (2 Corinthians 4:4) In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

    Who ever you obey, you become there servant.

    (Romans 6:16) Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?

    Adam and Eve never ate from the tree of life, for if they had things would have been greatly different today. “They sinned unto death” as the Apostle Paul tells in Romans 6:16.

    Revelation is God revealing his truths to us his children. Without his revelations given unto us we are on our own to try, and figure it out using the only thing we have left, which is our physical senses. Using our mind and physical senses in an attempt to gain this type of knowledge is futile. We will always get it wrong! The Apostle Paul tells in 1 Corinthians.

    (1 Corinthians 2:9) But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

    It is interesting to note, Paul was quoting from the book of Isaiah, but he did not quot the entire verse for some unknown reason. Here it is,

    (Isaiah 64:4) For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him.

    Adam and Eve lost there only source of information of finding out what God had from the beginning had already prepared for them. If they had eaten from the tree of life this is what they would have discovered. This my friend is what gives us Life today. With out this knowledge we will continue to live in darkness. Jesus him self is that tree of life, he is the Wisdom we need to be able to experience the reality of His Kingdom right now, not someday down the road as most believers think! Its time to wake up and arise from the dead, and Christ will give us light.

    How did Jesus destroy death (which is not knowing what God has already prepared for us)?

    (2 Timothy 1:8) Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God;
    (2 Timothy 1:9) Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,
    (2 Timothy 1:10) But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:

    Verse ten, Jesus destroyed death by bringing life and immortality to light through the gospel!!!
    Because of Adam and Eve's sin we to have lost that ability to find these things out, but not anymore!
    Jesus has revealed everything to us that his Father has already prepared for to us use and experience right this second, right now!!!! not tomorrow or the next day, or any day!!! Listen, God dwells in eternity, there is no tomorrow, or yesterday in his Kingdom. If he was going to give you something tomorrow, how would he do that if there is no tomorrow where he lives? The only thing God can do is give it you right now, and then help you try and find out what he has already given you. Seek, and find knock, and it shall be opened unto you, find what? Open what? Everything already completed from the beginning for you, and it is ready for your use!!! Come for all things are ready! Once you find out what God has given you, and you understand it, then faith is the easiest thing to have. Jesus told us that the only people who will prosper in his Kingdom are those who hear the Word and understand it! Lets destroy death together by finding these things out and share them with others. Read these two verses, especially verse 10. But God has already revealed these things to us, by his spirit....

    (1 Corinthians 2:9) But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
    (1 Corinthians 2:10) But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.

  2. 1Co 15:26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.

    1Co 15:55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
    56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
  3. Are you living in death?
  4. Are you? I have eternal life..and live in the eternal Spirit..I have freed from the law of sin and death by the "law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus".....The law of Moses is the ministry of death and condemnation.

    2Co 3:7 But if the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones,
  5. just asking
