The Human Race Inherited Their Ancestor’s Earthly Carnal Condition
After GOD Created Mankind/Adam, Man Descended from his Holy Estate through the >> Sin of Unbelief & Disobedience. << See >> What is Sin? << Adam did not Believe GOD. He did not have Faith in GOD; he Disobeyed HIS Commandments creating Enmity against GODEternal Death and that Penalty was passed to all of Mankind, who were in the Loins of their Natural (Carnal) Human Progenitor, the First Adam – the First Man.
Rom_5:12 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:
Heb_11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
Rom_8:8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
All things, including all Genetic Material, Traits, Characteristics and a Sinful Nature was passed on to the Descendants of Adam/Mankind as his heirs. Mankind was no longer an heir of GOD nor was he in the Image of GOD or bearer of any of HIS Characteristics because of his Polluted State in Sin.
Rom 8:29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
Rom_8:15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
JESUS CHRIST changed all that Sin had wrought upon Mankind through the Atonement, JESUS CHRIST is the Express Image of GOD as Mankind is Destined to be after the >> Resurrection. << JESUS CHRIST, as the Last Adam, is the Way to the Restoration of Son-ship with GOD The FATHER. The Purging of our Sin is through the Atonement Work of CHRIST JESUS, a Facet of HIS Eternal Works and the only Way to the FATHER.
Joh_14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Joh_1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
Heb_1:3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;
1Jn_3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
Rom_8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
Rev_4:11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created
Rev_5:2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?
Rev_5:9 And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;
Rev_5:12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.
The HOLY OMNIPOTENT GOD
Rom_8:11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
GOD is Omnipotent and has other >> Attributes, << | >>Titles and Aspects << that Portray HIS Powers such as Being All Knowing. This being the case HE knew that Man would be Deceived by a Malefactor, would Sin and have to undergo the Penalty of Sin which is the “Curse of Death”. Being Omnipotent, GOD Planned Salvation and a Savior for the Demise of Mankind. Salvation was in the Form of HIS Son, JESUS the CHRIST who was the Destined Savior of the Sons of GOD in the World before the Foundation of the World. HE was Prophesied to be the Savior of Mankind and the Conqueror who will Destroy the Oppressor (the devil) Adversary (Satan) and Enemy of Mankind and his Evil Works. JESUS CHRIST have been Prophesied of from The Book of Genesis to The Book of Revelation as the Promised Seed which would Bless all of the Nations of the World.
Gen 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
1Pe_5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
Rom 5:18 Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.
Rom 5:19 For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.
Alpha & Omega
>> Creation << was the Decree sent forth from Eternity and the >> Grand Design << was the Earthly Development and Implementation of GOD’S >> Divine Plan, << All was initiated before the Foundation of the World. JESUS CHRIST who was from the Beginning was Instrumental as Co-Creator of the Divine Plan. As Alpha – the First before Creation (HE Who was) with GOD. HE is the Resurrected CHRIST and the First Begotten of the Dead (HE Who is). HE is also the Omega, the Last (HE Who is to come). HE is All in All. HE will raise HIS People as Kings and Priests to GOD, the Father of Spirits.
Rev 1:8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.
Joh_4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
Heb_12:9 Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?
Rev 1:5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,
Rev 1:6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
Rom_11:36 For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.
The Book of the Revelation of JESUS CHRIST depicts how Mankind was doomed to die and how Mankind was Saved through the >> Person << and >> Eternal Work (& Worth) of JESUS CHRIST << as was Purposed by the Mercy and Grace of GOD, before the World began, through the Lamb of GOD (JESUS THE CHRIST) who was Slain from the Foundation of the World.
Rev_13:8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
In the beginning, of the Book of the Revelation of JESUS CHRIST, it is Revealed that JESUS CHRIST, identifying HIMSELF as the ALPHA & OMEGA, was Revealed to John in a Vision.
CHRIST sent an Angel to John who was HIS Disciple/Apostle while HE was Performing GOD’S Purpose on the Planet Earth which were >> The Manifold Works of CHRIST << & >> The Eternal Works of CHRIST << which included but was not limited to >> GOD’S Divine Plan << and >> GOD’S Grand Design << for Earth and its Inhabitants. There are additional things Planned that we are not yet Privy to or familiar with because GOD has not Ordained that information to be released as yet.
It is for this reason Individuals should not try to Purport “New Interpretations”, “New Revelations” or “New Truths”. It is usually the cause for Dissension and Schisms of the Organized Church. When GOD Desires a “New Dispensation” of Spiritual Truth or Revival HE gives it and it has “HIS Seal” upon it. When it is not of GOD, as all false Prophecies are, it too will be known. Believers are not to put their Trust in Man but in GOD, JESUS CHRIST and the >> Bible. <<
Act 1:7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.
