Sin...The Devil's Weapon Against Man

Sin...The Devil's Weapon Against Man (Notes from Broadcast)


1.) INTRO--
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.(NIV)

Sin Began with Lucifer

Lucifer fell from grace. He thought that he could be like God. He

thought that he was a match for God. He developed pride in his 

heart and did not want to submit to the One who created Him. He

thought that he was better than his Master. He wanted to take over 

Heaven and be in control. He obviously did not like the order that 

Heaven had. He thought that he could do a better job. He may have 

been jealous of Jesus the Son of God. Even though he was a high

 ranking angel, the position that he had was not good enough. He 

broke the 10 commandments before they were ever given to Moses.

Isaiah 14:12-15 How you have fallen from heaven, morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations! You said in your heart, “I will ascend to the heavens; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, on the utmost heights of Zaphon. I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.” But you are brought down to the realm of the dead, to the depths of the pit. (NIV)

How Did Lucifer Break the 10 Commandments?
1.)  You shall have no other gods before me.
a.)   Lucifer’s god was the god of self-entitlement.  He wanted to be like the Most High instead of submitting to Him. His desire to be God is where he made the desire for self-entitlement as his god.
2.)  You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above of on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them.
a.)   Lucifer allowed himself to be a godly image that 1/3 of the angels worshipped. They abandoned their heavenly positions to follow this false god. Therefore, Lucifer became the first false god to be worshipped.
3.)  You shall not misuse the name of the Lord you God.
a.)   Lucifer said that “he” would be like the Most High. He wanted to be God. He wanted the title that belonged to only God. He wanted the reverence and respect that is due to God. He actually wanted to “be” the Most High.
4.)  Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy.
a.)  Lucifer took away the eternal rest that the angels in Heaven had. This wasn’t a rest by which man gets tired. This was a rest from worry, strife, pain, suffering, evil, and chains of enslavement. By setting himself up to be a false god, he could not give them the blessed rest that is found in the true God of Heaven. Therefore, he broke this law of rest and so did the angels who followed Him.
5.)   Honor your father and mother.
a.)   Lucifer disobeyed God the Father. He set on a course that ultimately destroyed his relationship with Him. God wanted all things good for the Heavenly beings that He had created. However, Lucifer took it upon himself to dishonor God; therefore, disobeying the guidelines that he was supposed to follow.

6.)  You shall not murder.
a.)   Lucifer did not kill himself and the angels right away, but he signed their death warrant to hell when he disobeyed God. Sin cannot be tolerated in Heaven, so when he was kicked out, death row was his punishment. Therefore, he murdered himself and the other fallen angels.
7.)  You shall not commit adultery.
a.)   Lucifer allowed sin to come into his heart. That sin was pride. Therefore, he cheated on God by uniting himself with another god. The god of self-indulgence, pride, jealousy, and hate.

8.) You shall not steal.
a.)  Lucifer in his heart had stolen what did not belong to him. He
had stolen God’s throne in his heart. He had stolen God’s authority in his mind. He had stolen the worship from 1/3 of the angels that belonged to God and given to himself. He had stolen the love that God had for him and forced God to lose a piece of His creation by having to kick them out of heaven. At that moment, he stole God’s peace by creating war.

9.)  You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.

a.)  Lucifer made himself look as if he had the ability to overtake
      God. He lied not only to the angels but to himself by even
      thinking that he was on the same level as God. Him being the
      father of lies started in his own head.

10.) You shall not covet.

a.)    Lucifer coveted God’s title. He coveted God’s position. He coveted God’s power. He coveted God’s worship. He coveted God’s authority. His coveting brought about the breaking of all 10 Commandments with the end result being eternal damnation.
Lucifer was the cause of sin. He was the first one to sin and then he took 1/3 of the angels with him causing them to sin as well. That sin led to deception in the Garden of Eden. The sin that would lead to the fall of man.

2.) BREAK—Satan  Speaks Out – Devils Message to Man


Genesis 3:1-7 Now the serpent was more crafty 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’?” The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’ ” “You will not certainly die, the serpent said to the woman. (Satan knew that God would not strike them dead immediately because He did not immediately kill him. But he played on the words he spoke to Eve by mixing truth with error.) For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” (Wasn’t this what Satan wanted all along…to be “like” God? Ultimately, to be God?)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, (God’s wisdom comes from the Holy Spirit) she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. 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. (NIV)

Adam and Eve “sinned” because they disobeyed God.  Therefore, sin is disobedience to God.

1 John 3:4-10 Everyone who sins breaks the law, in fact, sin is lawlessness. But you know that he appeared so that he might take away our sins. And in him is no sin. No one who lives in him keeps on sinning. No one who continues to sin has either seen him or known him. Dear children, do not let anyone lead you astray. The one who does what is right is righteous, just as he is righteous. The one who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work. No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in them; they cannot go on sinning, because they have been born or God. This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not God’s child, nor is anyone who does not love their brother and sister. (NIV)

James 4:17 If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is a sin for them. (NIV)

Romans 3:23 For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. (NIV)

3.)  BREAK--Missing the Mark-What is Sin?

Do Not Keep Repeating Sin!

Proverbs 26:11-12 As a dog returns to its vomit, so fools repeat their folly Do you see a person wise in their own eyes? There is no more hope for them. (NIV)

2 Peter 2:21-22 It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them. Of them the proverbs are true: “A dog returns to its vomit,” and, “A sow that is washed returns to her wallowing in the mud.” (NIV)

James 1:13-15 When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For god cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed. Then after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death. (NIV)

Galatians 5:13-26 You, my brothers and sister, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love. For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” If you bite and devour each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other. So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want. The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft, hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy, drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit, Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other. (NIV)

Sin separates us from God.

Ezekiel 16:59 “This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I will deal with you as you deserve, because you have despised my oath by breaking the covenant. (NIV)

Joseph Fled from sin. Even though he may have been tempted to sleep with Potipher's wife, he did not yield to the temptation. 

Hebrews 3:15 As has just been said, “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion. (NIV)

Micah 7:18-19 Who is a God like you, who pardons sin and forgives the transgression of the remnant of his inheritance? You do not stay angry forever but delight to show mercy. You will again have compassion on us; you will tread our sins underfoot and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea. (NIV)

4.)  END--What is Sin?

Atonement...Jesus our High Priest

Atonement (NOTES from Broadcast)


1.) INTRO—Prophetic Holy Feasts-Day of Atonement 05:34

Atonement-The reconciliation between God and man through the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ.

Adam and Eve Sinned

Genesis 3:15 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.”
Adam and Eve had sinned. God had a plan of redemption to save mankind. Therefore, Satan would come up against Christ, but He would have the final victory.
Isaiah 53  1Who has believed our message
and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?
2He grew up before him like a tender shoot,
and like a root out of dry ground.
He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him,
nothing in his appearance that we should desire him.
3He was despised and rejected by mankind,
a man of suffering, and familiar with pain.
Like one from whom people hide their faces
he was despised, and we held him in low esteem.
4Surely he took up our pain
and bore our suffering,
yet we considered him punished by God,
stricken by him, and afflicted.
5But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
and by his wounds we are healed.
6We all, like sheep, have gone astray,
each of us has turned to our own way;
and the Lord has laid on him
the iniquity of us all.
7He was oppressed and afflicted,
yet he did not open his mouth;
he was led like a lamb to the slaughter,
and as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
so he did not open his mouth.
8By oppression and judgment he was taken away.
Yet who of his generation protested?
For he was cut off from the land of the living;
for the transgression of my people he was punished.
9He was assigned a grave with the wicked,
and with the rich in his death,
though he had done no violence,
nor was any deceit in his mouth.
10Yet it was the Lord’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer,
and though the Lord makes his life an offering for sin,
he will see his offspring and prolong his days,
and the will of the Lord will prosper in his hand.
11After he has suffered,
he will see the light of life and be satisfied;
by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many,
and he will bear their iniquities.
12Therefore I will give him a portion among the great,
and he will divide the spoils with the strong,
because he poured out his life unto death,
and was numbered with the transgressors.
For he bore the sin of many,
and made intercession for the transgressors.

The first sacrifice had to be made in order to make garments out of skin for them to wear. Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. (NIV)
The separation from God started in the Garden of Eden when God had to kick them out so that sin could not reside there.

2.) BREAK—Prophetic Holy Feasts-Day of Atonement (Part 2)

Aaron was the high priest and had to make atonement for himself and the Children of Israel. Leviticus 16
Leaders within the Body of Christ must make sure that we do not have anything that is keeping us from God ourselves.

a.)  He had to come to the Most Holy Place when God allowed him.
b.)  Bring a bull for a sin offering; a ram for a sacrificial offering.
c.)   He must put on sacred garments.
d.)  2 male goats from the Israelite community for a sin offering (forgiveness of sins) and ram for a burnt offering (sacrifice).
e.)  Must sacrifice for his own sins first and then those of the Israelites.
f.)    He had to sprinkle the blood.

Order of Melchizedek

Genesis 14:18-20 Then Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine. He was priest of God Most High, Creator of heaven and earth. And praise be to God Most High, who delivered your enemies into your hand.” Then Abram gave him a tenth of everything. (NIV)

Psalm 110:4 The Lord has sworn and will not change his mind: “You are a priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek.” (NIV)

Jesus our High Priest

Hebrews 4:14-16 Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. 15For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. 16Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. (NIV)

Hebrews 5:1-10 Every high priest is selected from among the people and is appointed to represent the people in matters related to God, to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins. 2He is able to deal gently with those who are ignorant and are going astray, since he himself is subject to weakness. 3This is why he has to offer sacrifices for his own sins, as well as for the sins of the people. 4And no one takes this honor on himself, but he receives it when called by God, just as Aaron was. 5In the same way, Christ did not take on himself the glory of becoming a high priest. But God said to him, “You are my Son; today I have become your Father.” 6And he says in another place, “You are a priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek.” 7During the days of Jesus’ life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with fervent cries and tears to the one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission. 8Son though he was, he learned obedience from what he suffered 9and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him 10and was designated by God to be high priest in the order of Melchizedek. (NIV)

3.) BREAK—Jesus Christ-Anime of His Last Day 09:14

Matthew 27:26-56 26Then he released Barabbas to them. But he had Jesus flogged, and handed him over to be crucified.
The Soldiers Mock Jesus
27Then the governor’s soldiers took Jesus into the Praetorium and gathered the whole company of soldiers around him. 28They stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him, 29and then twisted together a crown of thorns and set it on his head. They put a staff in his right hand. Then they knelt in front of him and mocked him. “Hail, king of the Jews!” they said. 30They spit on him, and took the staff and struck him on the head again and again. 31After they had mocked him, they took off the robe and put his own clothes on him. Then they led him away to crucify him.
The Crucifixion of Jesus
32As they were going out, they met a man from Cyrene, named Simon, and they forced him to carry the cross.33They came to a place called Golgotha (which means “the place of the skull”). 34There they offered Jesus wine to drink, mixed with gall; but after tasting it, he refused to drink it. 35When they had crucified him, they divided up his clothes by casting lots. 36And sitting down, they kept watch over him there. 37Above his head they placed the written charge against him: this is jesus, the king of the jews.
38Two rebels were crucified with him, one on his right and one on his left. 39Those who passed by hurled insults at him, shaking their heads 40and saying, “You who are going to destroy the temple and build it in three days, save yourself! Come down from the cross, if you are the Son of God!” 41In the same way the chief priests, the teachers of the law and the elders mocked him. 42“He saved others,” they said, “but he can’t save himself! He’s the king of Israel! Let him come down now from the cross, and we will believe in him. 43He trusts in God. Let God rescue him now if he wants him, for he said, ‘I am the Son of God.’ ” 44In the same way the rebels who were crucified with him also heaped insults on him.
The Death of Jesus
45From noon until three in the afternoon darkness came over all the land. 46About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eli, Eli, lemasabachthani?”(which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”).
47When some of those standing there heard this, they said, “He’s calling Elijah.” 
48Immediately one of them ran and got a sponge. He filled it with wine vinegar, put it on a staff, and offered it to Jesus to drink. 49The rest said, “Now leave him alone. Let’s see if Elijah comes to save him.” 
50And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit. 
51At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split 52and the tombs broke open. The bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. 53They came out of the tombs after Jesus’ resurrection and went into the holy city and appeared to many people. 
54When the centurion and those with him who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and all that had happened, they were terrified, and exclaimed, “Surely he was the Son of God!”
55Many women were there, watching from a distance. They had followed Jesus from Galilee to care for his needs.56Among them were Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James and Joseph, and the mother of Zebedee’s sons. (NIV)
