You do not have to make things right first before you are made right. Make yourself right first by coming to Jesus, then He Jesus will make things right for you.
We were made right first, then we made thing wrong.
So, we can go backward by making our wrong right first, before we are made right.
It’s not our method that works but Gods method.
God the Creator
Genesis 1:1 (NIV)
1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
God made us in His Image
Genesis 1:27-28 (NIV)
27 So God created mankind in his own image,
in the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them.
28 God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”
We have a body, Soul, and Spirit (When He breathe life into us)
Genesis 2:7, 15-16 & 22 (NIV)
God made men
7 Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.
The commanded. Free will He gave us to obey the command or disobey.
15 The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it. 16 And the Lord God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; 17 but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.”
God made the women
22 Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.
The Choice is presented to us.
Genesis 3:1, 6-7 (NIV)
1 Now the serpent was craftier than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?”
To disobey is what was chosen.
6 When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.
Knowing what is right and wrong now became a reality. They were pure because they were made naked once they notice they were naked they were no longer pure.
They covered their nakedness with fig leaves. That is what we do. We try to cover our wrongs our sin with good works and worldly pleasures. Anything so we do not feel the guilt that we have sinned against a Holy God.
7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves.
From right to wrong. From pure to impure. From walking with God to no longer walking with God.
The curse and the way of Salvation
14 So the Lord God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this,
“Cursed are you above all livestock
and all wild animals!
You will crawl on your belly
and you will eat dust
all the days of your life.
Salvation first Prophesied by God Himself
15 And I will put enmity between you and the woman,
and between your offspring and hers;
he will crush your head,
and you will strike his heel.”
16 To the woman he said,
“I will make your pains in childbearing very severe;
with painful labor you will give birth to children.
Your desire will be for your husband,
and he will rule over you.”
17 To Adam he said, “Because you listened to your wife and ate fruit from the tree about which I commanded you, ‘You must not eat from it,’
“Cursed is the ground because of you;
through painful toil you will eat food from it
all the days of your life.
18 It will produce thorns and thistles for you,
and you will eat the plants of the field.
19 By the sweat of your brow
you will eat your food
until you return to the ground,
since from it you were taken;
for dust you are
and to dust you will return.”
Before they were kicked out of the garden they were clothed. God killed a lamb to clothe them.
By doing this He showed us what needed to happen.
21 The Lord God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them. 22 And the Lord God said, “The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.”23 So the Lord God banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken. 24 After he drove the man out, he placed on the east side[e] of the Garden of Eden cherubim and a flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life.
The lamb that God killed to cloth Adam and Eve before they were kicked out of the garden was to shade its blood as an atonement for their sins.
Leviticus 17:11 (NIV)
11 For the life of a creature is in the blood, and I have given it to you to make atonement for yourselves on the altar; it is the blood that makes atonement for one’s life.
Jesus is the LAMB, who shaded His blood for you and me. To be the atonement for our sin.
John 1:29 (NIV)
29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!
He (Jesus) became our SIN so we can be Clothed in HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS
2 Corinthians 5:21 (NIV)
21 God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
Come to Him as you are
Mark 2:17 (NIV)
17 On hearing this, Jesus said to them, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”
Choose to believe
Romans 10:10 (NIV)
10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.
John 1:12 (NIV)
12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—
Make yourself right first by coming to Jesus, then He Jesus will make things right for you.
2 Corinthians 6:2 (NIV)
2 For he says,
“In the time of my favor I heard you,
and in the day of salvation I helped you.”
I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation.
