Jesus In Genesis … John 1:1-3 … Genesis 1:1 … February 12, 2017

     In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made. John 1: 1-3 ESV
     In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1:1 ESV
     God is the author, artist, and creator of all things and all life. All things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made. John 1:3 ESV What an awesome God we serve. He is bigger and more glorious than our minds could ever imagine. Yet God, knowing we needed a Savior, became flesh. And the word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have see his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14 ESV A Savior needed because, by the third chapter of Genesis, we read the account of the fall/sin of the man and woman that he had made and breathed life into. God chose not to destroy Adam and Eve but to bridge the gap of separation by sending his only Son to suffer the consequence of all sin. And this is where the story of Jesus begins – in the beginning of all things. When the serpent deceived Eve into doing what God had commanded her not to do, and Adam also disobeyed, the result was sin. Sin will always be dealt with by God for he is not author or creator of sin. Sin was the the result of the serpent’s deception and the woman and man’s disobedience.
God dealt with the serpent. The Lord God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this, cursed are you above all livestock and above all beasts of the field; on your belly you shall go, and the dust you shall eat all the days of your life. I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring; he (JESUS) shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel.” Genesis 3:14-15 ESV
God dealt with the woman. To the woman he said, “I will surely multiply your pain in child bearing; in pain you shall bring forth children. Your desire shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you.”      Genesis 3:16 ESV
God dealt with Adam. And to Adam he said, “Because you have listened to the voice of your wife and eaten of the tree of which I commanded you, ‘You shall not eat of it,’ cursed is the ground because of you; in pain you shall eat of it all the days of you life; thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you; and you shall eat the plants of the fields. By the sweat of your face you shall eat bread, till youreturn to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for you are dust, and to dust you shall return.”
Genesis 3:17-19 ESV
     In the third chapter, sin became a reality, but God dealt with it immediately as stated above. He dealt with Satan by informing him: I am coming after you. “He shall bruise your head” The “HE” is the offspring of the woman… JESUS- God becoming flesh in his only Son to deal with sin in the flesh. So the battle began and continues to this day. But in reality the battle has already been won by the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. Satan, however, will never give up and will continue to deceive all who will listen to him. Satan delights in causing pain which is always the consequence of sin. Jesus, the one who conquered sin in the flesh, has a different desire for your life. “I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.” John 10:10-11 ESV
     The call to us is still the same in all we do in life; we must make a choice as to whom we will listen and obey. May your answer be as stated in Joshua 24:15 “But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
Because of His Grace ~ Pastor David
