Adam and Eve were sinless and walked around naked, can we?
Pastor Jim Montgomerie    [email]    ( Netherlands ) 2017-04-14     Views : 53     Touched : 6
Adam and Eve walked around naked until they knew what sin was, after having this knowledge they tried to cover their nakedness because of shame and guilt before God. They tried to hide their shame behind fig leaves, but within no time they just dried up and withered away, and would have had to go through the same routine to hide their sin every few days or so. This was when God made the first animal sacrifice to cover their shame and guilt with the skin of the sacrifice.


If God had not stepped in and made the first two leather coats then Adam and Eva would have had to continue to cover their shame and guilt with their own thoughts, but their way of thinking just continually withered away exposing their nakedness time and time again.



Here we can see the difference today between someone who believes with his own thoughts that he has become born again, and someone who has become truly born again by their faith in the gospel of the water and the Spirit. Adam and Evaís way of thinking kept them in their guilt and shame, Gods way of thinking covered them once and for all.



This is what God has done for mankind today, He has covered their sins for once and for all with his gospel of water and the Spirit. It is finished, there is no more offer to be made for the forgiveness of sin. The born again saints are wearing the covering which God has made for them, therefore we have nothing to hide, no more shame and guilt, no more having to ask forgiveness for something which has already been forgiven.



Whereas, todayís Christians who believe through their prayers of repentance that they will receive forgiveness for their sins each and every time they commit them, have the same guilt and shame as Adam and Eve had. Their prayers for forgiveness just wither away, the same prayers for the same sins keep returning just as the covering of the fig leaves did.



Anyone who has not become truly born again of the water and the Spirit cannot have his sins covered by God, he can only hide them under his own form of covering, the Blood and the Cross only. By believing that the Blood and the Cross is all you need to cover your past, daily, and future sins is only using the same thoughts as Adam and Eva, theirs withered away just as yours do. The fact that you continually beg for forgiveness for the same old sins is proof enough of this.



[ Although someone who has become truly born again of the water and the Spirit has a sinless heart where the Holy Spirit of God dwells, he/she can still commit sin because of the weakness of their flesh. But those who have the indwelling of the Holy Spirit are different. Because they believe in the Jesus-Given gospel of the water and the Spirit, they despise their sins even more. Because the Holy Spirit who lives inside, our sinless hearts feel uncomfortable when ever we do commit sins due to our weakness, therefore we are not able to continue to do so. The Holy Spirit within us convicts of this. ]

[ This excerpt is taken from Rev. Paul C. Jongís book No19 The Love of God Revealed through Jesus, the only begotten Son of God (II) ]



When the Holy Spirit of God dwells within a sinless heart, he goes where ever the owner of that heart takes him, he hears whatever the owner of that heart listens to, He sees whatever the owner of that heart looks at, he hears every word which is spoken from the mouth of the owner of that heart, he knows every thought which occurs from within the heart of the owner, he also eats, drinks, and breathes whatever the owner of that heart does. No one must ever make the mistake that the Holy Spirit is not with us when we go out, shower, go to bed, whatever we do, where ever we go, The Holy Spirit is there also, to watch over us and to guide us. This is why we cannot cause him discomfort, we are not able to continue to do so.



Conclusion! Those who are without the indwelling of the Holy Spirit can never please God. Their prayers for forgiveness for their sins is proof of their guilt and shame. These prayers are just like the fig leaves, they wither and are worthless. So long as they refuse to believe in the gospel of the water and the Spirit, they will continue to feel guilt and shame for their sins. Because the Holy Spirit is not living in their sinful hearts, there is no one to convict them that the discomfort they are feeling should be rectified. They believe they have the indwelling of the Holy Spirit and still they continue in a life of iniquity, but it does not matter what the unborn do or where they go, the Holy Spirit is not there to offend. Their guilt and shame they have come from believing in God, but they do not know His Son and the gospel of the water and the Spirit He gave to save mankind.



The Moral! We were just like Adam and Eve before we knew what sin was, therefore just like them, we could walk naked and do as we pleased. Now that we know what sin is we canít cover it up any more like Adam and Eva did. God covered the sins of Adam and Eve with leather jackets, God has covered the sins of the righteous with His gospel of the water and the Spirit. Just as Adam and Eve could no longer walk naked, neither can we. Those without the Spirit of God will never get the moral.
