Bible Study Terrible Results of Sin

Satan had succeeded so well in deceiving the angels of God and in ruining noble Adam that he thought he should be successful in overcoming Christ in His humiliation. He looked with pleased exultation upon the result of his temptations, and the increase of sin in the continued transgression of God's law for more than four thousand years. He had worked the ruin of our first parents, and brought sin and death into the world, and led to ruin multitudes of all ages, countries, and classes. By his power he had controlled cities and nations until their sin provoked the wrath of God to destroy them by fire, water, earthquakes, sword, famine, and pestilence. By his subtility and untiring efforts he had controlled the appetite and excited and strengthened the passions to so fearful a degree that he had defaced and almost obliterated the image of God in man. His physical and moral dignity were in so great a degree destroyed that he bore but a faint resemblance in character and noble perfection of form to the dignified Adam in Eden.

At the first advent of Christ, Satan had brought man down from his original exalted purity and had dimmed that golden character with sin. The man whom God had created a sovereign in Eden, he had transformed into a slave in the earth groaning under the curse of sin. The halo of glory, which God had given holy Adam to cover him as a garment, departed from him after his transgression. The light of God's glory could not cover disobedience and sin. In the place of health and plenitude of blessings, poverty, sickness, and suffering of every type were to be the portion of the children of Adam.

Satan had through his seductive power led men to vain philosophy, to question and finally disbelieve the divine revelation and the existence of God. He looked abroad upon a world of moral wretchedness and a race exposed to the wrath of a sin-avenging God with fiendish triumph that he had been so successful in darkening the pathway of so many, and had led them to transgress the law of God. He clothed sin with pleasing attractions to secure the ruin of many.

But his most successful scheme in deceiving man has been to conceal his real purposes and his true character by representing himself to be man's friend--a benefactor of the race. He flatters men with the pleasing fable that there is no rebellious foe, no deadly enemy that they need to guard against, and that the existence of a personal devil is all a fiction; and while he thus hides his existence, he is gathering thousands under his control. He is deceiving many as he tried to deceive Christ, telling them that he is an angel from heaven, doing a good work for humanity. And the masses are so blinded by sin that they cannot discern the devices of Satan, and they honor him as they would a heavenly angel while he is working their eternal ruin.

--Sin Ending!--

First we are God's creation! All of us! We have a 'brain' that responds to the Holy Spirit one way or the other!! All of God's CREATION have this FREE CHOICE! We are told that the Lords Holy Spirit will not [ALWAYS *STRIVE WITH MAN]! (FACT) See Gen. 6:3. None of Gods creation is doing his [own] thing. See Eph. 6:12, or the mature END result as seen in Gen. 4:7's [free choice]. Christ asks Cain a question, do you care enough about your question to read what Christ told him??

Now: "[SEE], I HAVE SET BEFORE THEE THIS DAY *LIFE AND GOOD, AND *DEATH AND EVIL: IN THAT I COMMAND THEE THIS DAY TO LOVE THE LORD THY GOD, TO WALK IN HIS WAYS, AND TO TO KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS ...

BUT, (conditional free choice like the 'tree' of testing for a [perfect] Adam & Eve before they fell) if thine heart TURN AWAY, so that THOU WILT NOT HEAR, BUT SHALL BE [DRAWN AWAY], and worship other gods, and serve them; (see James 1:15!)

I DENOUNCE UNTO YOU THIS DAY, THAT YE SHALL SURELY PERISH, ...
(again notice!)
I CALL HEAVEN AND EARTH TO [RECORD THIS DAY] AGAINST YOU, THAT *[I HAVE SET BEFORE YOU *LIFE AND DEATH], BLESSING AND CURSING: [THEREFORE *CHOOSE LIFE THAT BOTH THOU AND THY SEED *MAY LIVE]. ... That thou mayest love the Lord thy God, and that thou mayest OBEY HIS VOICE, and that thou mayest [CLEAVE UNTO HIM: FOR HE IS LIFE,] and the length of days..." (Deut. 30:15 on in part & with my emphasis)

"But when the [righteous] turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, [shall he live?]

All his righteousness [SHALL NOT BE MENTIONED: IN HIS TRESPASS THAT HE HATH TRESPASSED, AND IN HIS SIN THAT HE HATH SINNED, *IN THEM SHALL HE DIE].

...IS NOT MY WAY EQUAL? (???? ) When a RIGHTEOUS MAN TURNETH AWAY FROM HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND COMMITTETH INIQUITY, AND DIETH IN THEM; [*FOR HIS INIQUITY THAT HE HATH DONE *SHALL HE DIE].

AGAIN, WHEN THE WICKED MAN TURNETH AWAY FROM HIS WICKEDNESS THAT HE HATH COMMITTED, AND DOETH THAT WHICH IS LAWFUL AND RIGHT, [*HE SHALL SAVE HIS SOUL ALIVE.] BECAUSE HE CONSIDERETH, (WHY??? CONSIDERETH IS A FREE CHOICE, COME LET US R_E_A_S_O_N TOGETHER SAYETH THE LORD!) AND TURNETH AWAY FROM ALL HIS TRANSGRESSIONS THAT HE HATH COMMITTED, [*HE SHALL SURELY LIVE, HE SHALL NOT DIE]. ...

*[FOR I HAVE [NO PLEASURE IN THE DEATH OF HIM THAT DIETH, SAYETH THE LORD GOD: *WHEREFORE TURN YOURSELVES, AND LIVE YE.]" (See Eze. 18:24-32 in part)

OK: We see also that this is talking about the SECOND DEATH! See Eze. 18:4 & Eze. 18:verse 20!! "The [SOUL] that sinneth, IT SHALL DIE]."

Hell will be a hot hell that will find the second death ones gone! Obad. 16
And the ones that will be punished the longest will be?? Read the Master's Words of Luke 12:47-48.
