Teaching: How Did We Become The Children of Wrath? Don’t Let Satan Win

Los Cabos, Peace, Padilla, I, Mexico(Vic_Padilla)

As we all know, thousands of years have now passed since a 1/3rd of the angels rebelled against Yahweh. Adam & Eve learned a very important lesson on that day when they ate the fruit of the tree of good and evil and that was never to listen to the devil again! You see, the devil cannot force us to do anything but he is very persuasive and works through our thoughts and can get you to do his dirty work. He preys on your weaknesses and knows how to infiltrate your mind so that you will act on the temptation (the sin). Yah created Adam & Eve and the serpent quickly came right in and bequiled Eve so he could establish his credentials over their lives and rule over humans

(Gen. 3:1-5 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil)

The devil told them they could be like “gods” and insisted Yahweh was lying to them so Eve tested Satan’s claims

(Gen.3:6,7  And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons)

Did they become like Yahweh? NO! Instead they became rebellious and disobedient like satan. All of a sudden, because of their disobedience and allowing sin to enter in, they felt guilty and tried to hide from Yahweh, they were fearful of Yahweh because they now knew they went against Him. It was their “nakedness” that made them afraid for there is nothing hidden from Yahweh. Yahweh had now become their enemy because Adam & Eve knew now there would be penalties for “disobedience” and knew they would be “separated” from Yahweh. They found out what “having a conscience” meant and so now would be exiled from the Garden of Eden to learn the differences between good and evil. They needed to learn lessons now and choose the right path and return (Gen. 3:21-24). To this day, when we are in disobedience we are in enmity with our Creator.

Yes, we were born into sin, but we were put here to learn lessons in life and are being tested and tried to see which path we will choose to stay on. The path that will lead us to our destruction or will we return to the righteous path that will lead us back home to Yahweh. If Adam & Eve obeyed Yahweh they never would have had anything to fear and nothing or no one could harm them but one act of “disobedience” totally separated them from Him. He cannot look at sin.

Paul spoke of this in Ephesians 1:9,10. Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: 10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:

WE all have a purpose here on earth and it’s not to just work, collect material things and gain wealth and do as we please. That is living by satan’s standards but we are all called to rise above that and live for Yahweh and return to the ways of righteousness, to overcome our weaknesses and temptations, to help one another, to love and serve our Creator with all our heart, mind and soul. Satan managed to pull us so far away from our true purpose in life and keep us so far away from Yahweh. Crafty and devious satan is! But Father is so good He knew this and all things will be made right again and be made new when Yeshua returns and all nations will be subject to be under his rule. Then there will be nothing that He will not rule over but those that overcome and endure ’til the end will be saved and shall rule and reign with Him. You see, He has a grand plan for mankind and people need to get back to the ancient paths because most right now do not have the foggiest idea about their true purpose in life and so they do not subject their life to Yahweh and continue to disobey. Satan loves this because he can then take them with him when he goes to the pit. Get out of the miry clay and back to the true reason why you are here on earth!

So contrary to popular belief systems in place by the false doctrines out there, this “mystery” was never ever meant to be abolished or that we are allowed to be in disobedience to Yahweh’s laws. When we disobey, we are rebels in the eyes of Yahweh. You won’t win that war my friends so why do you keep fighting with Him?

In fact Paul tells us otherwise in Ephesians 2:1-3 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others

People love to say we can never stop sinning and why not? Can you not stop lying? Can you not stop stealing or coveting your neighbor’s wife? Can you not overcome your temptations? You can’t because you don’t want to. Do you love your sins so much you desire never to be set free? Yes, it is very difficult and usually temporary when we try to overcome on our own but nothing is impossible for Yahweh and when we repent and return to Him it is the Comforter, the Holy Spirit that will remove these weaknesses of our flesh once and for all. WE must allow Him into our lives though and that happens only when we repent and ask for forgiveness and surrender our will.

Example: I used to smoke cigarettes and drink wine and they went together and my excuse was I am under stress (lol). I loved using that excuse. Well, eventually these two major weaknesses were controlling me and I was losing control over them (just as satan wanted it) so one night I cried out and said “I can’t do this anymore and I was literally broken because it was controlling my life”. Honest truth here. Well, lo and behold, the night I surrendered it I was freed from it & didn’t even know it yet. I always went to buy a pack of smokes and a bottle of wine after work and this night (the night after I surrendered to needing help) I went straight home. Never thought about buying either. Next night, same thing and next too and then it dawned on me that I didn’t even have a desire for it anymore. That was over 7 yrs ago and still free from both.

The point I am getting at is that it was only in brokenness and surrender that I could be set free. I had no idea I could do this because no one ever taught me this so I learned the hard way. There is something so powerful and someone much bigger than me that was more than happy to set me free yet I was battling against Him in my own spirit. All praise and Glory to Yahweh for his continuing compassion on us all. Later I learned that Yahweh reads our hearts and He saw I was sincere in needing help and was crying out for someone to help me. I was crying out for My Savior to help me and didn’t know it.

Moral of story: Don’t let satan convince you that you are hopeless, that you can never overcome, that you are worthless, that you need that drink or that cigarette, that you are powerless, and that Yahweh does not love you and will never be there for you. Don’t let satan win and take you with him in the end because it is for all eternity and we can never get a free “get out of jail card’ in hell. Come back to the One Who Loved us First. He loves each and everyone of us the same. The devil is a murderer, a liar and a thief and don’t let him steal the joy that you can have by returning and being set free. Stomp on the devil’s head instead!

I love you all my brothers and sisters!
