SIN- Satan’s Influential Nature.

For me, what comes to mind when the word sin is mentioned is, “Satan’s Influence Nothing else” (satan’s influential nature)! this is the state at which one is disconnected from God (it is important to note that the prefix “dis” thus used here stands for distant, meaning God is just distantly connected to us when we are sinners, but so distant, He can’t connect or help us), remember He said:

“…I will never leave you nor forsake you”…Hebrews 13:5b

 “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you…” James 4:8

Meaning He is with us, but in way that requires us going to Him. God doesn’t first of all draw close to us while we are still in sin because as much as He is a merciful Father (Deuteronomy 4:31); He is also a consuming fire (Hebrews 12:29). A sinner is who we have become not what we are; the true us is the image of God-

“So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them”… Gen 1:27

…if it is true that man is defined by life, then the mortal body is not who we are, God in all wisdom knew that man would fall- {someone might be thinking, if God is so good, why didn’t He just pretend the fall of man never happened and just create another master plan, why didn’t He just cover-up, no He had a plan, He still does concerning you, He solved it before it could ever come up-

 

“All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world”… Revelation 13:8

 

And we know from John 1:29 that the Lamb spoken of- here is Jesus

 

“The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world “John 1:29

 

And so therefore, here is what you should understand

 

“knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot. He indeed was foreordained (appointed) before the foundation (creation) of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you”… 1st Peter 1:18-20

 

This is to say, THE SOLUTION TO THE FALL OF MAN WAS SOLVED BEFORE THE FIRST MANT FELL!!!}

… But since His image couldn’t fall, He created a body to house the fall of man; called SIN. God hates sin not the sinner (not you, just the bad things you do), again this is prove that sin is not who we are, but what we have become. Sin is innate in our natural DNA; it’s not something you acquire after birth-

“Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity and in sin, my mother conceived me… Psalm 51-5”

…sin is a recessive gene that is dominant on earth once given birth too, and remains dominant until… (And that is why even a repented soul, after the sin gene has returned to its normal recessive nature even here on earth, when the person gives birth, that recessive gene picks up again in  the child and becomes dominant).

Now, realizing it’s not by your strength that the sin entered you, it is important to also note that, it’s not by your strength that the sin would be gotten out of you. Sin is the distance between you and God, the separation of you from God’s will- here is how it works in a sinner’s life:

GOD—GOD’S WILL—US… (What should be)

Now, since sin can’t take God’s place and can also not take our place, it takes the place of God’s will in our life (this is only because God’s will becomes manifest in us when we allow Him, the devil can control what we allow, if we let him), we now have,

GOD—SIN—MAN… (What actually is)

and so when GOD looks to see His will in man, all He sees is Sin in man, God’s will is defined as anything you can think of- that I know you’re thinking of right now!!! that’s what sin is stealing away (note, its present continuous, His mercies are new every morning, so every time they come, sin legally steals them away)

But, here is something that should interest you-

“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us”… Romans 5-8

…Christ did not die for us after we sinned, but rather while we were still sinners. This means the solution had been given long before we realized we sinned, of course, the essence of the death of Christ Jesus cannot be over emphasised. Sin was not in our master plan but became part of our master plan as a result of satan’s influential nature, and so, that’s why even while things were wrong, He was making right (He is making right)…He sent His Son to die for us because the devil comes to kill, to steal and to destroy!, the devil is greedy; he doesn’t just stop at trying to steal God’s will in your life, he also wants to kill and destroy our being which is the image of God, he doesn’t only want you to sin but, to also go to hell were, you wish you were killed and destroyed while eternally living, not somewhere even the devil wants to be but has to be…

Satan’s influential nature doesn’t have your name in it, only satan’s. You have been redeemed through the blood of the Lamb; the only  begotten Son of God and so don’t allow satan deceive you otherwise, thereby stealing, killing and destroying God’s will for your life.

“The thief (devil) does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I (Jesus) have come that they may have life and that they may have it more abundantly”… John 10:10

All scriptures are from the New King James version of the bible.
