"The father of all sin is the DEVIL but the mother of all sin is LUST" -Dr. D. K. Olukoya
He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. #1John3vs8#KJV
But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death. #James1vs14-15 KJV
And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? #Mark15vs34#KJV.
This I must say is the greatest of all cry of Jesus through His stay on earth. Why? I say so because this was the first and only time God left Him and this He knew was to happen when He said that He was sorrowful unto death at the garden of Gethsemane.
Why did God leave Him?
Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: #Galatians3vs13 KJV
EasyEnglish Bible 2018 says; As a result of the Jews' rules, God would have had to punish us. God would have had to make us separate from himself. But Christ bought us, to make us free, because God punished him on our behalf. It says in the Bible: ‘When people hang someone on a tree to kill him, that person must be separate from God.’ Galatians 3:13 EASY
You must understand that God is holy (#1Peter1vs16, #1Samuel2vs2) and can not and will not dwell in an unholy (cursed) thing (#Joshua7vs 11and12) and at the cross, Jesus was such. Even for His own son, God did not change or belittle His standards and this you must know was the spiritual implication of the death of Jesus on the cross and the depth to which God hates sin.
We all have made mistakes at one point or the other but there are some mistakes we must not make.
Sin is sin in the sight of God regardless of the degree our carnal understanding wants to term it (big or small) but you must not be ignorant that the punishment and consequences for the nature of sin engaged in differs. There is a sin unto death and a sin not unto death (1 John 5:16-17)
Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. #1Corinthians6vs18#KJV
Fornication is one the mistakes a man must not engaged in and it still one of the ruling factor the devil uses to bring men down. Fornication is not until you commit extramarital sex. All form of pornography, masturbation and ungodly forms of sexual activity (even with your spouse) is fornication and we must not be ignorant that this is what has infiltrated the internet and media which is destroying souls in this generation. Lets all call on God to help us for truly this flesh is weak.
Many have found themselves in the loop of destruction (the path that is not of God). This is no time to nurse sins but to cry out to God to save us and help overcome the tempting desires of this world.
Lets all be careful, not every actions that led to the downfall of many were intentional. Watch and Pray.
Remember your Creator while you are young, before the bad times come—before the years come when you say, “I have wasted my life.” #Ecclesiastes12vs1#ERV
Have you ever fallen from Grace before? What or who made you fall? Is there a possibility of you falling again if that scenario plays out again? Lets all work on ourselves, the devil won't be lenient or merciful in tempting, so lets learn to discipline ourselves as we we watch and pray.
Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. #Matthew26vs41
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: #1Peter5vs8
