TEXT: Luke 19:10  For the Son of man(Jesus Christ) is come to seek and to save that which was lost.

The moment Adam the first Creation committed High Treason (Gen. 3:6-7), he lost the spirit of God; he died spiritually, that is, he became alienated from God and joined to the Satan.

Man, a creation in the image of God, a spirit being, is dependent upon a higher power than he for his spiritual life. He must partake either of God’s nature or of Satan’s nature. So, when Adam the First Creation fell he took the Satan’s nature, as a result we all came to this world bearing the satanic nature, separated from God. Ephesians 5:1-2, Romans 5: 12, 17-19.

Spiritual Death, the nature of Satan, is the ground out of which has grown sin, sickness, physical death, and every sorrow that darkened the life of God’s man

Howbeit, the good news is, Jesus Christ came to redeem us from the Satan’s nature, and re-alienate us back to God; to bring back the existence of the Father-God’s fellowship which Adam had with God, to switch from Spiritual Death to Eternal life. Romans 5:10, Romans 5:19 Col.1:13, John 3:16, John 10:10, John 1:12, 1 John 5:1

But, before Eternal life can be given to man, he must be declared righteous.

If you are yet to receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour you are living in the Satanic Realm (Spiritual Death). It is only through Jesus Christ that we can have Eternal Life and walk with God just like Jesus did when he was on earth. 1 John 2:6. Even if you have backslide, no matter how terrible you have been Christ would welcome you; He will transform your life and make you a testimony to the world. It is terrible and dangerous to continue to live in the realm of Satan; living in sin. Sin has wages and the wages of sin is death Rom.6:23. It is sin that produces sickness, affliction, bondage and distress; but the moment you are found by God through Jesus Christ, you begin to enjoy good health, abundant life and the peace of God.

It is through Christ we will be able receive the spirit of God and for God to dwell in us 1Cor. 2:12. This would also bring man, again to the realm of God’s ability, the realm where all things are possible Matthew 17:20. Before the first Adam fell he was living in God’s ability; God’s nature. Gen. 2:20.

 

Key Point:  What humanity need is Life, the Nature of God, but God cannot impart His own Nature to man until He first makes it legally possible for man to be freed from the Nature of Satan. For this reason, Jesus Christ was born, so that through Him we can, from the Nature of Satan, transit to the Nature of God.
