We’ve all either read or heard the story of Adam and Eve in the garden? satan came in and deceived Eve and Adam went along with it. God had given the garden to Adam to occupy so it belonged to him. When satan came in as the sneaky serpent that he is, he had No power. He didn’t even have the guts to go directly to Adam, instead he went to the weaker one, Eve. This is why it’s so important for the husband to be the leader, the stronger one, and watch out for his family. He should have stomped on that serpents head right then and there but he didn’t, he went right along with this! God had already given him a command to tend to the garden but instead of obeying the Word of God, he obeyed satan and when he did that satan became his Lord.
God had given Adam authority, but when he gave into satan that day he gave his authority over to him, that is why the Bible says that “satan is the god of this world.” This is when the earth and everything in it was suddenly cursed. As we read in Romans 5:12 “Through one man’s trespass, death passed to all men.”
But listen! Here is Good News! You don’t have to live under the curse any longer Christian! God set us FREE from the curse through His Son Jesus! In Galatians 3:13 it says, “Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us; for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree.” Somebody should be running around the room right now!! This is GOOD NEWS!
When you receive Jesus as your Lord and Savior, that very moment, you are redeemed from the curse! satan is no longer your Lord! You have been brought from darkness into Light! The curse is still out there in this world, but you now have authority over it using the Name of Jesus.
God has done everything that needed to be done to redeem you from the curse that was put on this earth when Adam fell. But YOU have to rise up and take your authority in the Name of Jesus. But just knowing this today should change your life because you don’t have to live a sick, weak, defeated life any longer Christian!
Jesus said, “Occupy until I come!”, He gave us authority over all the power of the enemy! We are Christ’s Ambassadors as though Jesus were making His appeal through us!
Read Romans 5:12-21
Now you know why we sing songs that say “Jesus is my Redeemer!” He has redeemed you, bought you back, set you Free from the curse! You are blessed and didn’t even know it but the Truth, the Word of God sets you Free and whom the Son sets Free is Free indeed!!
