Perfect Creation

“It was good” – with man “It was very good”

God didn’t create anything evil.

Attack on Creation

– introduces the serpent
Genesis 3:1 ESV
Now the serpent was more crafty than any other beast of the field that the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God actually say, ‘You shall not eat of any tree in the garden’?”
· – introduces the serpent
o Who is he? ()
Revelation 12:7–8 ESV
Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon. And the dragon and his angels fought back, but he was defeated, and there was no longer any place for them in heaven.
Revelation 12:7 ESV
Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon. And the dragon and his angels fought back,
Revelation 12:9 ESV

Revelation 12:9 ESV

Ancient Serpent - Devil
Devil is real
Devil is created
Was in heaven and lead a rebellion against God
- HE will crush YOUR head

What does he do?

Genesis 3:1 ESV
Now the serpent was more crafty than any other beast of the field that the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God actually say, ‘You shall not eat of any tree in the garden’?”
Did God actually say …”

Took her eyes off God’s word and made it about her desires.

o
Why didn’t God stop him?
§ And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, “You may surely eat of every tree of the garden, 17 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.”
o God gave Adam (and Eve) a choice to love him.
o Love always involves a choice or decision to love.
o Where does this leave me? ()

Where does this leave us?

The perfection of God’s creation was now tainted with sin.
the fallout would be catastrophic
We now know a world full of death and disease
Nothing Like the one originally created
Downward spiraling of sin would start with this initial judgment
Genesis 3:16 ESV
To the woman he said, “I will surely multiply your pain in childbearing; in pain you shall bring forth children. Your desire shall be contrary to your husband, but he shall rule over you.”
Genesis 3:19 ESV
By the sweat of your face you shall eat bread, till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for you are dust, and to dust you shall return.”
§ -
Relationship with God was now broken
Man was no longer able to reside in the presence of God
BUT GOD LOVED US TOO MUCH TO LET IT END THERE!!!!

Plan for Salvation

Genesis 3:15 ESV
I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel.”
Gen 3:15
· – “he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel.”

Is this Jesus?

Isaiah thought so
Isaiah 53:4–6 ESV
Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned—every one—to his own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.
· Salvation is needed by ALL

Salvation is needed by ALL

1 John 3:7–8 ESV
Little children, let no one deceive you. Whoever practices righteousness is righteous, as he is righteous. Whoever makes a practice of sinning is of the devil, for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil.
o Inference: No one can be righteous (except Christ)

Victory in Jesus

· Jesus and Nicodemus
John 3:3 ESV
Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
All need to be born again
All need to be born again
Because ALL have sinned ()
John 3:14–15 ESV
And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in him may have eternal life.
o Jesus paid the price for sin on our behalf (“lifted up”)
o So we may have eternal life (restored relationship with God)
John 3:16 ESV
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
·
o For God so loved the word – (us – Love triumphs over sin/ death)
o He gave His son (Jesus)
o By believing in Him (salvation by faith alone)
o We may have eternal life (our sins are removed, and we have access to God now and for all eternity)
