WHAT DOES GODS WORD SAYS ABOUT SIN: GOD COMMANDS ALL MEN TO REPENT AND PUT YOUR FAITH IN CHRIST
We will examine the resulting opposition to building those walls. Anytime a believer takes a step of faith in obeying God, he can expect opposition (1 Pet 4:12Open in Logos Bible Software (if available) KJV). Satan only fights things that hinder him from stealing, killing, and destroying (Jn. 10:10Open in Logos Bible Software (if available) KJV). Another biblical principle is that the greater the hindrance to Satan, the greater the opposition will be.
It is not true that we came up from the slime and the beast through the jungle, and that we pass out into a night of oblivion unlighted by a single star.
It is true that “in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” and that He made “man in His own image.”
The phrase, “Let us make man,” proclaims, I think I can say without fear of contradiction, the greatest creative act of God.
“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”
“When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained; what is man, that You are mindful of him? and the son of man, that You visit him?
“so, god created man in his own image, in the image of god created he him; male and female created he them. and god blessed them, and god said unto them, be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. and god said, behold, i have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. and to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to everything that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, i have given every green herb for meat: and it was so. and god saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. and the evening and the morning were the sixth day.” — Genesis 1:27-31
We will find that every act of the Godhead carried out on this earth is done through the person, agency, work, power, ministry, and office of the Holy Spirit. The only exception to that would be the ministry of Christ in this world in His first advent, but even then, the Holy Spirit functioned in every single capacity of His conception, birth, life, ministry, death, and resurrection
“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” — Genesis 1:1 KJV The phrase, “In the beginning,” speaks of a time in eternity past when God began the creation of the heavens and the earth. Williams says, “Beginning is the… Continue Reading →
The personal holiness of Christ was more strikingly presented in the sin offering than in any of the other sacrifices. The Holy Spirit through Moses said, “It is most holy.” The sin offering, whose blood was brought into the sanctuary, symbolized Christ bearing before God the sin of the whole world. The sin offering, the blood of which was not so brought in, but its flesh was eaten by the priests, presents Christ as making His own the sins of the individual sinner who believes upon Him.
