Let’s get serious! The Word of The Creator of ALL as ‘Man’?

Accusation! Something (HuMan) that was Created AFTER us, is higher than us?

Whisper, whisper, whisper… “We will make our own kingdom…”

Arguments ensued/disagreements and a festoon of like beings gathered together…

Funny thing? God Knows ALL!!!

It is Spoken! Amen.


Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.

Why this diatribe? Garden of Eden. God Spoke to Adam warning Adam to not eat of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil!

Many believe that God spoke directly to Eve concerning the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. It is no wonder, because most assume that God explicitly spoke to Eve about it. But I believe this may be based on a faulty assumption — a speculation in which God spoke directly to Eve when we are never explicitly told that He did:

Genesis 3:3b: “God has said, ‘You shall not eat from it or touch it, or you will die.’”

If Eve’s is relating a face-to-face encounter with God, and if touching the tree produced lethal consequences, then what would have prevented Adam, who received a different message from God before Eve was ever created (2:22), from being killed if he touched the fruit as Eve stated?

It will be remembered that “the man” received his commandment directly from God (2:16-17):

Genesis 2:17b: “[For] in the day that you eat from it you will surely die.”

How then is Eve relating a personal encounter with God if she doesn’t relate the same message given to Adam in Genesis 3:3?

How? Because she was deceived. The weakness of human flesh has been known from Creation yet God sent His Word as Man to live not as royalty, but as a huMan offspring. So God’s Love for us is at some level rooted in our identity as His Image-bearers. By sending His Son – Jesus to die for our sins, God is working to restore the radiance of His own glory shining in and through us, Amen.

John 3:17  For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

1) Perhaps the best answer to the question: Why did Jesus come to earth? is found in Christ’s own words in Luke 19:10 — “to seek and to save the lost.” His heart is not to condemn, but to bring salvation to all who will receive Him.

In February 1969 I was an Air Force officer on temporary duty at McChord AFB, Tacoma, Washington. I had bought a New Testament, and I found myself reading it night after night. The truth of the Gospel broke through, and I willingly accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior all alone there in my room on base. How could this happen? Why? Because Jesus, the wonderful Son of God, left heaven and came to earth to seek and to save the lost sinner Jim. And He did that also for each one of you!


1 John 4:9  This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.

2) Why did God send Jesus to earth? — “that we might live through Him.” God the Father sent His Son Jesus from heaven to earth, where He died for our sins and rose again from the dead to enable us to move from death to life (John 5:24). From eternal condemnation in hell to eternal life in heaven. And Jesus makes this life available to all of us if we will “turn to God in repentance and have faith in our Lord Jesus” (Acts 20:21).

Before His death and resurrection — and long before ours — Jesus promised, “Because I live, you also will live” (John 14:19). He has delivered from fear of death (Hebrews 2:15) all who repent and believe in Him and has granted us eternal life in His glorious presence.


Acts 3:26  When God raised up his servant, he sent him first to you to bless you by turning each of you from your wicked ways.

3) God the Father sent Jesus to this world “to bless you.” God is not a vindictive, hostile God. He loves you! His heart and His intention are to bless you. And He does that through Jesus by (#4, just below)…

4) A sadly less-preached reason why Jesus came to earth was to “turn each of [us] from [our] wicked ways. Heaven is a place of absolute, 100% holiness, purity, and perfection. There will be no wickedness there. And through the saving power of Jesus Christ, God enables us to begin participating in that heavenly holiness by turning us from iniquity right now on earth.


Luke 4:43  But he said, “I must proclaim the good news of the kingdom of God to the other towns also, because that is why I was sent.”

5) Why did God send Jesus into the world? — to preach the good news of God’s kingdom.

In teaching us how to pray, Jesus said, “Our Father in heaven … thy kingdom come…” (Matthew 6:9-13). When I pray the Lord’s prayer and come to this portion about God’s kingdom, I often pray something like this: “Lord, rule and reign in my heart … in my home … in my family … in our church … in our nation…”

John the Baptist’s first biblically recorded message was: “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” (Matthew 3:2, NASB). Jesus’ first recorded public preaching was: “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” (Matthew 4:17, NASB). The Bible describes the Lord Jesus Christ as “Lord of lords and King of kings” (Revelation 17:14; 19:16). In serving Jesus right now, while we live on this earth, we are serving the One who has received from God the Father “all authority in heaven and on earth” (Matthew 28:18). Through Jesus we pray to the Father, “Thy kingdom come!” And that kingdom of God has come to this earth in the Person of Jesus Christ.


Luke 4:18-19  “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”

6) Jesus was sent by God the Father to proclaim good news to the poor. This poor man (me) was lost in sin, spiritually bankrupt, until I heard and embraced the saving Gospel (the “good news”) of Jesus Christ. God sent His Son from heaven to earth to bring that good news to our ears and our hearts.

7) He was sent to proclaim freedom for the prisoners. The Bible teaches that “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). As a result, we were imprisoned and held captive by our sins and all the foul habits resulting from our sinful natures. But Jesus was sent to save us and bring us freedom from those captivities.

8) Jesus was sent to earth to bring recovery of sight to the blind. This is certainly true spiritually, as the truth of God’s Word breaks through to us and we turn to Jesus Christ in faith and repentance. It is also true physically. While on earth Jesus healed the blind, the deaf, the lame, and those afflicted with all kinds of illnesses. And Jesus still heals today! Why? Because He “is the same yesterday and today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). He saved people from sin 2,000 years ago, and He saves us from sin today. Likewise, Jesus healed the sick 2,000 years ago, and He does the same today, in the 21st century.

9) He was sent to set the oppressed free. The Father sent the Son from heaven down to earth to free us from oppressions of all kinds. Are you under stress, pressures, afflictions, perhaps even crushing calamities? Look to Jesus. He was sent to set the oppressed free, and that absolutely includes you!

10) He was sent to proclaim the “year of the Lord’s favor.” That favor from God can be yours today. His blessings are not just for the ancient Bible heroes; they are not just for those already in heaven. They can be yours today in Jesus Christ. The apostle Paul exhorts us: “I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor” (2 Corinthians 6:2). How can I receive God’s favor, His blessings? — “No matter how many promises God has made, they are ‘Yes’ in Christ” (2 Corinthians 1:20).


Mark 10:45  For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.

11) A somewhat surprising reason why Jesus came to earth (again, in His own words) was to serve, to give, not to be catered to. He washed their feet, He gave His life. This is astounding! The King of kings, the Lord of lords, came from heaven to earth to serve! Ask yourself: If Jesus, the Lord and Savior, left heaven to serve us in His life, death, and resurrection for our salvation, how much more should we be humble, willing, self-sacrificing servants of the Lord and of our fellow man?


John 6:38  For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me.

John 12:49  For I did not speak on my own, but the Father who sent me commanded me to say all that I have spoken.

12) Why did Jesus come to earth? — to do the Father’s will and to speak the Father’s words. He said, “I do nothing of myself” (John 8:28). Our Savior Jesus was entirely committed to submitting His own will to that of God the Father. So should we. The perfect example of our Lord gives new meaning to the prayer He taught: “Our Father which art in Heaven … Thy will be done…” (Matthew 6:9-10, KJV).

And as Jesus did, so should we determine that our speech, our words, our conversations, will reflect the words and the heart of God. This confirms the great importance of reading our Bibles regularly, so that we are increasingly familiar with the thoughts of God on a multitude of subjects and can share those divine thoughts in our everyday speech.

And we pray:

Blessed Jesus, no words can describe the awesome influence of Your life. Generations have tried and none can come close to fully capturing the power of Your Love for us. Thank You for Loving me, Lord Jesus, and thank You for allowing me to Love You. You have taught me everything that I need to know: Love The Lord with all my heart, strength and love one another. I Love You and pray this in Your name, Amen.
