Plan of Salvation: Separation of Man From GOD – Lesson 18
The separation of GOD’s human creation from Him is the focused heartbreak of GOD. His beloved creation being out of direct communion and engagement with Him is not His intended purpose in created mankind; the jewel of His creation.
Thus, it is the central theme of the WORD of GOD; restoring His created being to right relationship with Him so that GOD and His created people can once again be in full, complete fellowship with one another.
This separation creates the ultimate demonstrated love of GOD towards us through the gift of His Son, Jesus, Who provides the means to bring us back into the intended relationship with GOD our Creator.
Lesson Scripture: Romans 5:12-14
“12 Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, anddeath through sin, so death spread to all people [no one being able to stop it or escape its power], because they all sinned. 13 Sin was [committed] in the world before the Law [was given], but sin is not charged [against anyone] when there is no law [against it]. 14 Yet death ruled [over mankind] from Adam to Moses [the Lawgiver], even over those who had not sinned [a]as Adam did. Adam is a type of Him (Christ) who was to come [but in reverse—Adam brought destruction, Christ brought salvation].”
“Type” defined: a symbol of something in the future, as an Old Testament event serving as a prefiguration of a New Testament event. (Dictionary.com, July 8, 2017, 10:12 AM) This is what Adam was, “a type of Him (Christ) who was to come [but in reverse – Adam brought destruction, Christ brought salvation].”
It is through the empowering Spirit of GOD that all who believe that Jesus is the Son of GOD sent into the world to redeem separated human creation to GOD the Father are brought into right relationship and fellowship with the Creator GOD.
If you believe this to be true, will you accept Jesus Christ today as your LORD and personal Savior? If so, confess your sins to Jesus today, and acknowledge Him as the Son of GOD Who died for your sins, and sufficiently paid the debt of death. Confess that you believe that GOD raised Him from the dead, and He now sits on the right hand of GOD interceding on your behalf to GOD the Father for the forgiveness of all your sins you have ever committed and will ever commit.
Once you have prayed this prayer, believing, you are forgiven and are saved through your faith in Jesus as your personal LORD and Savior. Now connect with a Bible-believing and Bible-teaching church and study the WORD of GOD to understand the height, depth, and width of GOD’s love for you.. Then share with others that they too can be reconciled unto GOD through Jesus.
Thank you for yet another wonderful lesson. May God continue to bless you and yours…
