The Fall of Man

September 9, 2013

The fall of man began when Adam (the first man) disobeyed God and was enticed by Eve. Adam became weak and vulnerable by eating of the “tree of knowledge”.
God gave man dominion over every living thing upon the face of the earth. Man, in his infinite wisdom, thought he could out-smart God and do things his way. In the Garden, God gave man only one command. Man could not keep that one command. Adam was more interested in pleasing Eve, rather than pleasing God.
In today’s society it seems as men, we are more about pleasing ourselves rather than God. Man has relinquished his authority over to the woman. Men don’t want the responsibilities of being the head of the house or the Head of God House. There are men that would rather stay out all night; drinking, partying, going from house to house, woman to woman or doing drugs.
As with Adam, he found the fruit to be pleasing in his sight. What fruit is Satan dangling in front of us, to cause us to be disobedient to God? Some men won’t lead their families in prayer, Bible study or carry their families to church. They have elected to give that authority and responsibility to the woman.
In God house, there are more women than men. In past generations, men were men. Man was not too good or ashamed to bow on their knees and pray for God to bless their homes, the community, the government, the church and their children. In today society, men would rather wash their automobiles; mow their lawns, in which God blessed them with. Some men go fishing, hunting or just prefer to sleep late.
When Jesus rose from the grave, the women were the first at the tomb. Where were the men on that morning? Where are the men today? Males make babies and leave them for the mother or the government to raise and they call themselves men. Real men stay and take care of their children. Men have decided to walk around with sagging pants, a couple of earrings in their ear and rob rather than work. They have totally disrespected the role of manhood, themselves, God and the purpose they were created for. Godly men don’t follow the world or things created for women. As I have often said “any man that put earrings in his ear, is unsure of his sexuality”. Why stop with earrings? Why not put on a dress, hoses and women shoes?
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. (Genesis 1:26)
But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel. (1Timothy 5:8)
The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man; neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abominations unto the LORD thy God. (Deut. 22:5)
What man will go for the Lord? “Also, I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me”. (Isaiah 6:8)
What man will rule his house? “And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD”. (Joshua 24:15)
