Back in the garden days … Adam and Eve walked in unhindered fellowship with GOD, their CREATOR…..until…..the fall.
When sin entered …fellowship between GOD and man was broken…physical and spiritual death occurred as a consequence.
And the all the authority that Adam had, as GODs child, was handed over to the enemy, the devil…the prince of this world…
Adam was then forced to forage through this temporal life…relying not on HIS intimate relationship with the LORD, not being led by the HOLY SPIRIT but relying on his own 5 senses….what he saw, what he smelled, what he heard, what he tasted, and what he felt (emotions).
Adam navigated through this life…depending on his own instincts… his own abilities …and his own assessments.
Adams life… marks the life apart from GOD…because of the sin-separation.
We would all be living that Adam life today, were it not for the LORD JESUS CHRIST….WHO came to become sin for us, pay the penalty for that sin, and restore us to right relationship with our CREATOR….through HIS death on the CROSS.
And glory, hallelujah, HEAVEN becomes our eternal home. The price has been paid, relationship restored..and we walk with the LORD again…in that sweet garden of fellowship.
And glory, hallelujah, we now walk through this life being led of the HOLY SPIRIT of GOD, in union with our KING…..no longer pressing forward limited to our own 5 senses…what we see, what we smell, what we hear, what we taste and what we feel (emotions)….but we live the KINGDOM life and adhere to BIBLE WORDS like these:
TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, LEAN NOT TO YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING, IN ALL YOUR WAYS ACKNOWLEDGE HIM AND HE WILL MAKE STRAIGHT YOUR PATHS…PROVERBS 3:5
What a marvelous, glorious thing….living with eternity in view…by the power of HIS SPIRIT!….because of the BLOOD of the LAMB!
