The first Adam fell for it and fell out of relationship with God. The last Adam, Jesus, fixed it, taking our sins in His body on the tree, so we can die to sin and come alive together with Christ, into righteousness (1 Peter 2:24) found ONLY in Christ who is the only one who can unveil you to behold the glory of the Lord and be changing into his image and likeness one degree of glory to another; for this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit (2 Corinthians 3:12-18). Jesus took the curse (Galatians 3:10-14) so you and I can be FREE to have intimate relationship (NOT sexual; I wish I didn’t have to point out the obvious; intimate communion as in Revelation 3:20) with God once again. So the enemy of our souls has come up with another plan, another ruse, another trick, another scheme, another device, another wile, another lie, another falsehood, another SUBTLE snake-like beguiling, serpent-like bewitching, deception, delusion, illusion of help, for people to fall for.
Genesis 3:1: more subtle than any other; 3:6: looks like a good idea; seems desirable; 3:11: God says, “Who told you…?” and they became naked and afraid and hiding so God clothes them with animal skins no longer able to be clothed by God as before they fell. God clothed Gideon with Himself, but until the finished work of the Cross, no one could be clothed permanently and continuously with the Spirit of God, until through Jesus we can be clothed with Christ when we come out of the world system and into Christ, reconciled and reconnected and regenerated, born again of God, of the Water of Life, of the Spirit. Apart from Christ is doubt about what God says in His Word, enmity and division and fear…
But God! in the fullness of time — sent Jesus — brought the gospel of God and the kingdom of God (Mark 1:14-15) — died, buried,resurrected, ascended, glorified at the Right Hand of God our Father, to give those who come to Jesus VICTORY over sin, death, and the works of the devil, including the virus the world system has given a name “corona” that means crown, BUT the Name of Jesus is ABOVE every name that can be named in heaven AND on earth — for Jesus is the Word of God made flesh — he is the King of kings and Lord of lords over everything, and everything has been put under his feet (Ephesians 1:19-23), so when we are individual members of his one Body and one Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:12-27) we have COME OUT of the world system and COME TO Jesus, yoking, learning, and finding rest in God’s Victory, who conquered, overcame, triumphed OVER the powers and principalities (Colossians 2:13-15); gloriously VICTORIOUS over the world system and the god of this world who BLINDS MINDS. In Christ and Christ in you we can fully SUBMIT to God our Father through Jesus by the Holy Spirit, and resist the devil — not consent, comply, compromise, tolerate, go along with, or conform to this world — and the devil must flee from you.
The New Covenant makes the old obsolete (Hebrews 8:8-13). In Covenant with Jesus, we are in the true Royal Family, in the Household of God, under Abba Father, yoked to the Son of Righteousness. Because of one man’s trespass, DEATH REIGNED through the first Adam, but how much MORE do those who RECEIVE the abundance of abounding grace upon grace AND the free gift of righteousness REIGN IN LIFE through the one Man, Jesus Christ (Romans 5:17). “You must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God IN Christ Jesus” (Romans 6:11).
“Jesus partook of our human nature, that THROUGH HIS DEATH he DESTROYED him who has the power of death, that is, the devil, and DELIVERS all those who through FEAR OF DEATH are subject to life-long bondage” (Hebrews 2:14-15).
“For freedom Christ has set us free; STAND FAST therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery” Galatians 5:1
Don’t fall for it; rise with Christ Jesus into the new life of the new creature of the new creation of the New Covenant in the one Body and one Spirit of God in Christ (Colossians 2:11-20; Ephesians 4:4; 1 Corinthians 12:12-27). “IF any one is IN CHRIST, you are a new creature, a new creation, the old has passed away, behold, the NEW has come” (2 Corinthians 5:17).
“His divine Power has granted to us ALL THINGS that pertain to LIFE and godliness, through the knowledge of him who CALLS US to his own glory and excellence, by which he has granted to us HIS PRECIOUS and VERY GREAT PROMISES, that THROUGH THESE you may ESCAPE THE CORRUPTION…and become PARTAKERS of the divine nature” 2 Peter 1:3-4
