We live in a fallen world. Ever since the days of Adam sin came into the world. God has given man free will. He wanted man to love him, but it had to come freely. It had to come from the man’s heart. He will not force us to do anything. When Adam and Eve ate of the tree of good and evil their eyes were opened to sin. They were no longer pure. They saw sin for what it was and sin began to control all men.
Man could no longer control his nature. Men fell away from loving and honoring God.
Cain and Abel were born and there became trouble. That honoring of God was easy for Abel but did not come so easily for Cain. God accepted Abel’s sacrifice. But Cain did not have the same heart attitude. God spoke to Cain: ‘if you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door, it desires to have you, but you must rule over it.’ Genesis 4:7. NIV
Cain grew jealous and angry, letting sin run through him and struck his brother and he died. Ever since that day sin and the creator of sin (Satan) has been leading people astray. Abel did not deserve to die but he did.
“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; l have come that you may have life, and have it to the full.” John 10:10
Satan has had a hand in turning many away from God over thousands of years.
God loves us and wants to give us a fulfilled life. Satan on the other hand has terrible plans for those who will listen to his evil ways. And those evil ways hurt people.
God has laid out his plans for a perfect and fulfilling life in his word. Not all choose to read our awesome creators words let alone do them.
“all have sinned a fallen short of the glory of God,”
We have all sinned. No one is perfect. God does not owe us anything. But because he loves us he has made a way for us to be redeemed. We no longer have to be a slave to sin and death. Many have chosen not to accept this free gift.
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus the Lord.” Romans 6:23
People will continue to be deceived and be controlled by evil desires. Things like hate, murder, jealousy, and pride will continue. We can’t stop it. Bad things will continue to occur even to good people until that day when we who have believed gather to meet the Lord in the air.
There will not be sin in heaven nor death. We will be with him forever. In that perfect world. We will be a family.
“so that by two unchangeable things (His promise and His oath) in which it is impossible for him to lie, we who have fled (to him) for refuge would have strong encouragement and indwelling strength to hold tightly to the hope set before us.”
Hebrews 6:18. AMP
