God loves you. “ The Lamb, who was killed before the origin of the world, is a man who has received support, splendor, wisdom, power, refinement, whole month, respect, faith and silt। Let him be glorified forever. ”Now came true Amen। In this world you have received everything but so far Jesus has not believed in Christ, you are the saddest and most righteous man ! The poorest people on earth are not without money but without Jesus Amen ! Your first need and need is the forgiveness of eternal security sins, salvation and eternal life – “ Behold, the Lamb of God who has raised the sin of the world’।And he is atonement for our sins, and not only for us, but also for the sins of the whole world। The only Creator God – Ekmatra Caste Man – Ekkatra Blood Red – Ekkatra Problem Sin – Ekkatra Solution Jesus Christ Do you know that there is eternal life even after the deer only God loves you ! Because God loved the world so much that he gave it to his only born Son – No one who believes in him is unhappy, But he may have eternal life, but God reveals his love for us: Christ died for us when we were sinners। Because you are saved by grace by faith; And it is not from you, it is God’s donation; He who is waking up to my door every day hears me waiting for the pillars of my doors, Blessed is that man। But God reveals his love for us: Christ died for us, while we are sinners। But in all these things we are even more than the winners by him, who loved us। Because I have been completely unarmed, neither death nor life, nor angels, neither the princes, nor the rights, nor the things that come from now, nor the things that come later, neither the heights, nor the deep, Neither any other creation can separate us from the love of God in our Lord Christ Jesus। Love is in this – not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent his Son to be atone for our sins। For God made sin for us, who did not know that we would be the righteousness of God। Jesus said to him: “ Bato, truth and life are me; No one comes to the Father except me. ” Your word is a light for my feet, and a light for my way। I cried before Miramire fell bright; I hope in your word। My eyes are open at night’s guard to meditate on your word। And call me on the day of the storm; I will deliver you, and you will raise me। He cures those with broken hearts and binds them to the ointment of their injuries। You will be in me and ask for whatever you want if my words are in you, and that will be done for you।

Jesus Was In All Points Tempted Like As We Are, Yet Without Sin.

  • What is Lust? Why do we Lust? What do we Lust for Our topic today concerns sin – the original sin of our first parents, Adam and Eve, in the Garden of Eden and our chief problem – by inheritance, as well as by nature. With God’s mercy, this study can perhaps give us a glimpse of why man is “born unto troubleas the sparks fly upward”, as we read in Job 5:7. Mankind has always been quick to blame others – even God – for his failuresproblemssorrows, and frustrations. However, this blame is altogether misplaced, since the Bible clearly explains that our problems stem from us – from our own pridegreed and lust – as we see in Jam 1:1315: “Let no man say when he is temptedI am tempted of Godfor God cannot be tempted with evilneither tempteth he any manBut every man is temptedwhen he is drawn away of his own lustand enticed”. So What is lust? –The Bible clearly reveals in 1 John 2:16, “For all that is in the worldthe lust of the fleshand the lust of the eyesand the pride of lifeis not of the Fatherbut is of the world”. These were the very same temptations that Satan successfully used against Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden and unsuccessfully against the Lord Jesus Christ when He was tempted in the wilderness for 40 days and 40 nights. These same enticements are the bases for our sin, which is rooted in our own selfishness. They also form the foundation of how unsaved man thinksspeaks, and acts. We see the vast difference that exists between the world (which really represents the kingdom of Satan) and the Father (Who represents the Kingdom of God). 1 John 2:17 also indicates that this present situation is only temporary: “And the world passeth awayand the lust thereofbut he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever”. Col 3:5 points out the very important principle that lust or covetousness is actually idolatryWhy Do We Lust? – Here in Jam 1:1315, we learn from God that our sin is a direct result of our lust – in fact we are “drawn away” or “drag away” by our lustPro 27:20 states, “the eyes of man are never satisfied”. In reality, we want what we cannot have. Man has the evil tendency to think that he knows more than God. He is deluded into thinking he knows what he really needs – what is best for him. How far this is from the truth! What Do We Lust For? – The Bible declares in Jam 4:25: “Ye lustand have not… Ye askand receive notbecause ye ask amissthat ye may consume it upon your lusts”. The problem lies in the fact that all that we lust for will never satisfy our soul. We can only “enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season”, as Heb 11:25 indicates. Our day, like much of the New Testament period is characterized by people who love pleasure more than God as we read in 2 Tim 3:4, “Traitorsheadyhighmindedlovers of pleasure more than lovers of God”.

Gen 3:6 “And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food [lust of the flesh], and that it was pleasant to the eyes [lust of the eyes], and a tree to be desired [covet] to make one wise [pride of life], she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.”

Col 3:5 “Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornicationuncleannessinordinate affectionevil concupiscence, and covetousnesswhich is idolatry

Jam 4:25 “Ye lustand have notye killand desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. Ye askand receive notbecause ye ask amissthat ye may consume it upon your lusts. Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with Godwhosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy?”

  • Destructive Nature of Sin – We see in Jam 1:1315, man is enticed by his own lust, and it is lust that “bringeth forth” sin, and sin “bringeth forth” death. The bottom line of all sin results in destruction and ultimately, everlasting death in Hell. In other words, the payment for our sin is to spend an eternity under the white-hot anger of a Holy and Righteous God that demands absolute perfection from each of His rebellious subjectsNum 11:3334 dramatically records Gods judgment upon the Israelites who complained and lusted after meat, “And while the flesh was yet between their teethere it was chewedthe wrath of the LORD was kindled against the peopleand the LORD smote the people with a very great plague”. That is why the Bible has so much to say with regard to our sinfulness. From even a casual reading of the Bible, we are brought face to face with not only our innate weaknesses and inadequacies but, more importantly, with our sins that are sending us pell-mell to eternal damnation. This is the accurately painful description that Eph 2:3 paints: “Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our fleshfulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mindand were by nature the children of wratheven as others”. Gal 5:1921 itemizes the works of the flesh – the “conversation” or “lifestyle” of someone who has not been saved. Even if a person were to refrain from committing these particular sins outwardly, they would still remain guilty for having committed these in their mindsRom 7:5 explains, “For when we were in the fleshthe motions of sinswhich were by the lawdid work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death”. To be “in the flesh” signifies that we are not saved. In Rom 8:13 we find these words, “For if ye live after the fleshye shall die”. Thus, we are introduced to the principle of sowing and reaping, which is inherently active in the life of any person. They will either be sowing and reaping “to the flesh”, or they will be doing the same “to the spirit”. To be “in the spirit” signifies that we are saved. The outcome is also spelled out in Gal 6:8, “For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruptionbut he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting”. Our problem with sin, and its well-deserved consequence – punishment in Hell forevermore – has to do with the fact that we are accountable to God for our sin, since we were created in the image of God1 John 3:4 explains, “Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the lawfor sin is the transgression of the law”. Furthermore we understand from Rom 7:7, “What shall we say thenIs the law sinGod forbidNayI had not known sinbut by the lawfor I had not known lustexcept the law had saidThou shalt not covet”. This is why we read in 1 Cor 15:56, “The sting of death is sinand the strength of sin is the law”. May God deliver us from His wrath in order to grant us His mercy.

Jam 1:1315 “Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evilneither tempteth he any man: But every man is temptedwhen he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceivedit bringeth forth sinand sinwhen it is finishedbringeth forth death

Num 11:3334 “And while the flesh was yet between their teethere it was chewedthe wrath of the LORD was kindled against the peopleand the LORD smote the people with a very great plague. And he called the name of that place Kibrothhattaavah [which means graves of lust]: because there they buried the people that lusted.”

Gal 5:1921 “Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; AdulteryfornicationuncleannesslasciviousnessIdolatrywitchcrafthatredvarianceemulationswrathstrifeseditionsheresiesEnvyingsmurdersdrunkennessrevellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.”

  • Deceptive Nature of Sin  Let us consider the Biblical notion that all sin is based on deceit, or based on a lieDeceit is the opposite of truth and is, therefore, the opposite of the Word of Truththe Bible. In our time together we want to look at the following: 1. Deception in the Garden, 2. Deception in ManSin first reared its ugly head in the least likely of places – a perfect environment where two individuals who had been created perfectly by God and in His image existed in perfect fellowship with their Maker. Unfortunately, this idyllic situation was short-lived as their Creator presented them with a test, which they tragically failed, as we read in Gen 3:114: “Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field… And the woman saidThe serpent beguiled meand I did eat”. At the very onset we see how rapidly and to what extent sin manifested itself in the form of lies, and blaming others. In 2 Cor 11:3 we find this statement, “But I fearlest by any meansas the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtiltyso your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ”. We also learn from 1 Tim 2:14, “Adam was not deceivedbut the woman being deceived was in the transgression”. This verse do not mean to suggest that Adam did not sin – he most certainly did – but he was not deceived: he knew full well what he was doing. We understand this because when Eve “took of the fruit thereofand did eatand gave also unto her husband with herand he did eatAnd the eyes of them both were openedand they knew that they were nakedand they sewed fig leaves togetherand made themselves aprons.” The awareness of their physical nakedness merely served to underscore their spiritual nakedness, which meant they had died spiritually, and deserved the just punishment of an eternity in Hell for their disobedience. This in turn compelled them to foolishly think they could DO SOMETHING on their own to avoid Hell – this is the reason they sewed fig leaves together in an attempt to hide their spiritual nakedness. Next let’s look at how the deceptiveness of sin affected every human being born after Adam and Eve. Rom 5:12 explains, “Whereforeas by one man [Adam] sin entered into the worldand death by sinand so death passed upon all menfor that all have sinned”. Rom 7:11 states, “For sintaking occasion by the commandmentdeceived meand by it slew me”. Satan acquired control of this present universe by default, owing to the sin of our first parents, Adam and Eve. That is why the Bible states in John 8:44, “Ye are of your father the deviland the lusts of your father ye will do …”. The most fundamental deception of sin denies the very existence of sin itself. 1 John 1:8 declares, “If we say that we have no sinwe deceive ourselvesand the truth is not in us”. 

Gen 3:16 “Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yeahath God saidYe shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath saidYe shall not eat of itneither shall ye touch itlest ye die. And the serpent said unto the womanYe shall not surely dieFor God doth know that in the day ye eat thereofthen your eyes shall be openedand ye shall be as gods [God], knowing good and evil. And when the woman saw that the tree was good for foodand that it was pleasant to the eyesand a tree to be desired to make one wiseshe took of the fruit thereofand did eatand gave also unto her husband with herand he did eat.”

Gen 3:1114: “And he said, Who told thee that thou wast nakedHast thou eaten of the treewhereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat? And the man saidThe woman whom thou gavest to be with meshe gave me of the treeand I did eat. And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman saidThe serpent beguiled meand I did eat. And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life.”

John 8:44 “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truthbecause there is no truth in himWhen he speaketh a liehe speaketh of his ownfor he is a liarand the father of it

Rev 12:9, “And the great dragon was cast outthat old serpentcalled the Deviland Satanwhich deceiveth the whole worldhe was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him

  • Only Gods Truth Can Overcome Deception  Heb 3:10 describes deception as a matter of the heart: “Wherefore I was grieved with that generationand saidThey do alway err in their heartand they have not known my ways”. This is actually speaking about the congregation in the wilderness – the nation or people of God – who were considered by God to be the apple of His eye. We also know from the Bible that only those Israelites under the age of 20, actually arrived safely in the Promised Land, a beautiful picture of Heaven. In 1 Pet 2:25 God likens a believer to sheep going astray (the condition of every human being) which is the same meaning as to err in heart, “For ye were as sheep going astraybut are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls”. Sin also caused man to lose his spiritual “life” – so that all of our first parents’ progeny, the whole human race, are born spiritually dead and continue in that state unless God intervenes in their lives to give them eternal lifeCor 4:6 highlights the necessity of salvation, by the Lord Jesus Christ, the only Savior for sinners: “For Godwho commanded the light to shine out of darknesshath shined in our heartsto give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ”. Our only hope lies in the work of the Lord Jesus to pay for our sins in Hell, and bestow His righteousness, or goodness, upon us. This fact is emphasized by 1 Cor 15:22: “For as in Adam all dieeven so in Christ shall all be made alive”. The first “all” refers to all mankind, and the second “all” comprises all of Gods elect. The work of salvation was accomplished entirely by the Lord Jesus Christ, the “second man” (or “last Adam”), Who came to redeem and recreate man in the image of God (1 Cor 15:4547). God uses the words of the Bible, to give people spiritual life in their souls. As one reads the Bible, the Holy Spirit convicts of sinrighteousness, and judgment, as we find in John 16:8. We also understand from Rom 7:7 that the Bible, as the Law of God, is designed to expose and condemn our sin, “… I had not known sinbut by the law: for I had not known lustexcept the law had saidThou shalt not covet”. And we also are aware that faith (which is a synonym for salvationcomes by hearingand hearing by the Word of God, as Rom 10:17 tells us. On the other hand, 2 Cor 4:34 gives us more insight of unsaved, “But if our gospel be hidit is hid to them that are lostIn whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe notlest the light of the glorious gospel of Christwho is the image of Godshould shine unto them”. May God have mercy of us to see how easily we are deceived by our sin, and may we flee to the Bible and to the Lord Jesus Christ Himself as our only covering for sin, by His righteousness alone.

Tit 3:3 “For we ourselves also were sometimes foolishdisobedientdeceivedserving divers lusts and pleasuresliving in malice and envyhateful, and hating one another

Eph 2:12 “And you hath he quickened [made spiritually alive], who were dead in trespasses and sinsWherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this worldaccording to the prince of the power of the air [Satan], the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience

1 Cor 2:14 “But the natural man [or a non-believerreceiveth not the things of the Spirit of Godfor they are foolishness unto himneither can he know thembecause they are spiritually discerned

1 Cor 15:45-47 “And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soulthe last Adam was made a quickening spirit. 46Howbeit that was not first which is spiritualbut that which is naturaland afterward that which is spiritual. 47The first man is of the earthearthythe second man is the Lord from heaven.”

  • Jesus was in All Points Tempted like as We areYet Without Sin  We have seen in Jam 1:1315, man is enticed by his own lust, and it is lust that “bringeth forth” sin, and sin “bringeth forth” death. The Greek word bringeth forth is only used one other time in the New Testament, which is located 3 verses below, in Jam 1:18: Of his own will begat [bringeth forthhe us with the word of truththat we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures”. And it is indeed interesting that this same word “bringeth forth”, or begat, is the only hope that the human race has of being rescued from an inevitable rendezvous with the Judge of this universe. This of course is speaking about the will of God in causing us to be born from above. The Bible is crystal-clear: “For the wages of sin is deathbut the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord”, as we are reminded of in Rom 6:23. That is why the Bible has so much to say with regard to our sinfulness, and by the same token, much to say about Gods love – the only solution to our sin problem. In John 3:6 the Bible declares, “That which is born of the flesh is fleshand that which is born of the Spirit is spirit” and verse continues, “Marvel not that I said unto theeYe must be born again”. The Bible informs us in Rom 6:16 that we cannot serve two masters: “Know ye notthat to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obeyhis servants ye are to whom ye obeywhether of sin unto deathor of obedience unto righteousness?” As God saves His people and they grow in grace, one thing they quickly recognize is that the Christian life is a battle. Even after a person is redeemed he struggles with sin because his body still remains unsaved, even though in his soul he has received eternal life. This is clearly seen in a number of verses like Rom 7:20, “Now if I do that I would notit is no more I that do itbut sin that dwelleth in me”. Mat 26:41 adds, “Watch and praythat ye enter not into temptationthe spirit indeed is willingbut the flesh is weak”. Also in Eph 6 and throughout the Bible one learns that the only “real” strength that one can possess is that which God alone gives to each of His redeemed children. “Be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might” highlight the supremacy of Gods everlasting power in bestowing His salvation upon His elect when He saves them and sustains them by His graceEph 6:1013 explains who the real enemy is in this spiritual warfare, and states that a believer is to “put on the whole armour of God that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil”. 2 Cor 2:11 tells why this is: “Lest Satan should get an advantage of usfor we are not ignorant of his devices”. These verses also outlines the various parts of the Christians armor2 Cor 10:36 further adds that this spiritual battle is to be fought with spiritual weapons. The words “wiles”, “power”, “darkness”, and “wickedness” found in verses 1112 highlights the Deception of the DevilEph 4:14 also highlights the deceptive teaching that is rampant in our day. Eph 6:1018 highlights the objective for wearing the pieces of armor, which are defensive in nature – except for the Sword of the Spirit (or the Word of God) which is the only offensive weapon in the Christian’s armory. This weapon – the Truth as revealed in the Word of Godthe Bible – along with all the rest of the armour of God can overcome Satans Deception. The Bible clearly reveals in 1 John 2:16, “For all that is in the worldthe lust of the fleshand the lust of the eyesand the pride of lifeis not of the Fatherbut is of the world”. These were the very same temptations that Satan successfully used against Eve in the Garden of Eden and against the Lord Jesus Christ when He was tempted in the wilderness for 40 days and 40 nights. But Jesus did not succumb to Lucifer, as Adam and Eve did, instead he combated Satan with the the Sword of the Spirit – the Word of God.

2 Cor 10:36 “For though we walk in the fleshwe do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnalbut mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holdsCasting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.”

Eph 4:14 “That we henceforth be no more childrentossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftinesswhereby they lie in wait to deceive;”

2 Cor 2:11 “Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.”

Eph 6:1018 “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his mightPut on the whole armour of Godthat ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and bloodbut against principalitiesagainst powersagainst the rulers of the darkness of this worldagainst spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of Godthat ye may be able to withstand in the evil day [judgement day], and having done allto stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spiritwhich is the word of GodPraying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;”

Matt 4:111 “Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. 2And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred. 3And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of Godcommand that these stones be made bread [lust of the flesh]. 4But he answered and saidIt is writtenMan shall not live by bread alonebut by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. 5Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, 6And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of Godcast thyself down [pride of life]: for it is writtenHe shall give his angels charge concerning theeand in their hands they shall bear thee uplest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. 7Jesus said unto himIt is written againThou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. 8Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the worldand the glory of them [lust of the eyes]; 9And saith unto him, All these things will I give theeif thou wilt fall down and worship me. 10Then saith Jesus unto himGet thee henceSatanfor it is writtenThou shalt worship the Lord thy Godand him only shalt thou serve. 11Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.”

Heb 4:1216 “For the word of God is quickand powerfuland sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 13Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do. 14Seeing then that we have a great high priestthat is passed into the heavensJesus the Son of Godlet us hold fast our profession. 15For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmitiesbut was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of gracethat we may obtain mercyand find grace to help in time of need.

For he that findeth me shall find life, and shall receive mercy from the Lord. But he that sinneth against me, harmeth his own soul; All those who hate me love death.’ Proverb. 8:35-36 But God shows his love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 He committed no sin, nor was any guile found in his mouth; He did not rebuke in return; He did not threaten when he suffered, but committed himself to the righteous judge. He Himself bore our sins in His own body on the cross, that we might die to sins and live to righteousness; By His stripes you were healed. 1 st. Proverb. 8:35-36 Nor is salvation in any other; For there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12 Jesus said to him: “I am the way, the truth, and the life; No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6 Behold, he comes with the clouds, and every eye shall see him, even those who despise him; And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of him. So be it! Amen! Revelation 1:7 And he was clothed in blood; And his name is called ‘Word of God’. Revelation 19:13 “And behold, I come quickly; And I have my reward to give to every man according to his work. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.” Revelation 22:12-13 Note: Today people don’t even have time to go to heaven. Believe in Jesus Christ and you will receive forgiveness of sins, salvation and eternal life.
