CONSEQUENCES Margaret Lepke ~ Please click to forward slides at your leisure
In the beginning God created all things
He provided ideal living conditions
Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die. And Adam and Eve were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed. Then God commanded:
But Satan appeared on the scene… The devil A deceiver Our adversary The father of all lies Chief of fallen angels The prince of this world Poses as an angel of light He wants to take you to HIS destination - HELL
Has God REALLY said, “You shall NOT eat of EVERY tree…?” We may eat of the trees in the garden, but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, “You shall not eat it - nor shall you touch it - lest you die.” Satan attacked by sowing doubt… At first, Eve resisted…
You will NOT surely die! For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil. But Satan persisted…
So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, She took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband, and he ate. Disaster struck the human race… And Eve was deceived
Adam & Eve ate of the fruit And sin entered the world
And separated sinners from God Sin evoked God’s judgment
And so sin entered the world, and death through sin. And death spread to all men, because all sinned. Genesis Chapters 2 & 3 The wages of sin is death! And the consequence…
Even today… NO ONE is right with God - not even one – FOR ALL HAVE SINNED And come short of the glory of God. Romans 3:10,23 Is there a way back to God?
He sent His Son to pay the penalty for our sins God Provided a Rescue Operation And the consequence…
But Satan hates you and does not want you to believe this! God loves you! He wants you to know the truth
Jesus said: Broad is the way that leads to destruction and there are many who go in by it. Narrow is the way which leads to life and there are few who find it. (Matthew 7:14)
If you trust Jesus, you can escape eternal death! Jesus said… I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
Can you truly say… ?
Your life depends on it! Margaret Lepke ~ The End Eternally! !
