God is still
on the throne
When the Lord created man, he said to him, "The earth is
subject to you. Earth belongs to you, however, here is a tree
and you are not allowed to eat its fruit, for when you eat from
it you will surely die."
It was Satan's desire to obtain rulership over man and the earth,
and he also already knew how. Satan knew that if he could bring
it about that one of them would eat the fruit, then the other
one would also eat it. And when they eat, that will mean that
they have sinned and will die. "I will then be the lord
over mankind and the earth," Satan thought.
Genesis 3:4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall
not surely die;
Genesis 3:6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good
for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to
be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit, thereof,
and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he
ate and God drove them out of the garden. A new day began, the
sun rose again, however, it was a different day than usual.
Spiritual darkness covered the earth. Satan and the demons were
already waiting for both of them and they kept saying to themselves,
"We've got them. We've got him. Adam belongs to us. Eve
belongs to us." Satan and the fallen angles rejoiced that
they had authority over mankind and earth and everything upon
They knew that God had promised a savior, they knew that this
savior was determined to take back their power and authority
over the human race, animals, and the earth.
However, they would make sure that they would kill him when
he came. They were sure about that. They had already got over
the first hurdle and they would also make it over the second
• From now on, they would get people to be so involved
with themselves, that they would have no longer have any interest
whatsoever for God.
• They decided to created substitute gods, and gave them
idols and religions. We will give Eve everything so that she
will be distracted from God.
• We will show Adam how much freedom he now has, how good
it is being without God. We will keep Adam under the false illusion
that he is his own boss. "You can do what you want, no
one can tell what you have to do. Adam, don't let anyone to
talk you into something, you're intelligent and you're the boss."
However, instead of freedom, there was captivity, instead of
peace, there was only fear, instead of joy, there was only uncertainty
and instead of life, there was death. And so they are deceiving
many people even today, also within the church. It is strange
that a person does not understand what is driving and guiding
him to do what he does. His nature became anti-God, anti-Christ,
anti-authority. Only the "I" and NOW counts.
• Death is the end, and such an individual does not believe
in eternity. Today, many people no longer believe in the Word
of God. Oh, dear, what a terrible awakening it will be when
eternity begins - without any hope of God's help. Therefore,
it is now important, as long as you are still among the living,
to be converted completely to Jesus Christ and to ask HIM for
forgiveness and direction. Call upon HIM so that you will be
saved from worldliness and sin, before it is too late. For God
is still on the throne! rw
