6 - THE SHORT CUT LIE IS QUID PRO QUO

 

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8).

FALLING HARD IN THE GARDEN

GOD’S instruction to Adam and Eve was that they could eat any fruit in the Garden of Eden except one. He said: “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” (Genesis 2:17).

We so often try to assemble something without the owner’s manual. Likewise, we try to win a spiritual battle without the armor of God protecting us.  Sadly, prayer becomes the final cry for God’s help after first trying all carnal options and worsening the problem through our misguided self-determination!

God created everything in the Garden for Adam and Eve to eternally enjoy. However, He gave them one commandment to obey, and they failed by listening to the lies of the serpent. Paraphrased, "don't eat it, or you will die."  The Word precisely says what God said! 

Eve’s main problem was that she had a conversation with Satan in the first place! Scripture states: “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you” (James 4:7-8a).

Half-truths, lies, the world, and our old nature, which includes pride and greed are some of the most common strategies Satan uses to tempt us to sin against God. His goal is to keep us from God and eternal life. Reflecting the Image of God by the renewing of our minds is our calling now.

We win the battle for control over our mind as we 'put on the whole armor of God.’ The helmet of salvation will serve us well as we move forward in our relationship with God. The Apostle Paul writes, "For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds; Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God and bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ” (2 Corinthians 10:4-5).
