The sole purpose of man is to worship God. God desired creatures who would freely worship and love him. The only way for this love to be real it had to be tested. Test are given to measure effort and knowledge. God gave the first man and woman a test by allowing the serpent (Satan) to enter the Garden and deceive Eve. Mankind failed God’s test and sin entered into the world. It grew extremely fast. Murder right out the gate with Cain killing his brother Abel. In an effort to save man, God circumvented his owns words by preparing a lamb (his Son) to die in-place of man. Jesus became the scapegoat.
Now we fast forward to the year 2016 and there is still turmoil in the land. Wars and rumors of wars fill the social media accounts and household table-talks. The answer for them in the Bible was Jesus and today he is still the answer. In fact, that is why Jesus has not transferred all of the Christians out of the world. Jesus said, I have given them Your word and the world has hated them; for they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. I am not asking that You take them out of the world, but that You keep them from the evil one (John 17:15).
Who is this evil one? It is the same Satan found in the Garden of Eden. He is still being used to test humans love for God. We fight him the most aggressively when we love Jesus. Those in Christ will be kept. You can be confident that the blood shed on the cross and the Holy Spirit given as the earnest expectation of our salvation will deliver us from hell. Let us not grow weary in well doing.
All Christians have a responsibility to be salt and light. Flood the social media and the airwaves on youtube with light. Let the world know that the problems we face started in the Garden of Eden and the solution is Jesus. Any other solution will create for you a wandering in the desert effect. A cycle of depression and suicide in your family. A cycle of sexual, alcohol, and drug abuse. A cycle of mental disorders and sleep paralysis.
God wants to deliver us from all of our afflictions, but he has placed some parameters on it. Love him with all of your heart, soul, mind, and strength. This will lead you into all truth and set you free.
