Scripture Reading: Isaiah 14:12-17

Sin originated with Satan. In I John 3:8 we read, "He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning." The Lord Jesus Christ said, "I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven" (Luke 10:18). This fall is described in Isaiah 14:12-17. Of particular interest is Satan's five "I wills" as recorded in verses 13 and 14. This provides a key to all sin - self will, not God's will.

Therefore, sin entered the world by Satan. Sin entered man through Adam. "Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon men, for that all have sinned" (Roman 5:12). Adam was created as an innocent being in the image of God and was a free moral agent. God gave Adam and Eve the Garden of Eden with all its splendor and beauty to enjoy. The only limitation was that given in Genesis 2:17 "But of the tree of the, knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die." This is where God drew the line between Creator and the created; between good and evil; between God and man. As a result you and I are born sinners. This is our inheritance from Adam. "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23).

 How God Saves Men
 Believing Christ DIED, that’s HISTORY.
 Believing Christ DIED for YOU SINS and Rose again that’s SALVATION.
 Read Acts 16L31 Romans 1:16, and 1. Corinthians 15:1-4
