Origin of man’s sin Genesis 3: 1-13

Consequently, the woman saw that the tree was good for food and that it was something desirable to the eyes, yes, the tree was pleasing to look at. So she began taking of its fruit and eating it. Afterward, she also gave some to her husband when he was with her, and he began eating it.

Genesis 3:6

Satan is the invisible Ruler of the World….and the force behind evil.

We know that we originate with God, but the whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one.

1 John 5:19

Sin through one man.

That is why, just as through one man sin entered into the world and death through sin,+ and so death spread to all men because they had all sinned.”

Romans 5:12

17 And to Adam* he said: “Because you listened to your wife’s voice and ate from the tree concerning which I gave you this command, ‘You must not eat from it,’ cursed is the ground on your account.+ In pain you will eat its produce all the days of your life.+ 18 It will grow thorns and thistles for you, and you must eat the vegetation of the field. 19 In the sweat of your face you will eat bread* until you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken.+ For dust you are and to dust you will return.”

Genesis 3:17-19


To the woman he said: “I will greatly increase the pain of your pregnancy; in pain you will give birth to children, and your longing will be for your husband, and he will dominate you.”

Genesis 3:6,7

Signs of last days

Those who deny.

First of all know this, that in the last days ridiculers will come with their ridicule, proceeding according to their own desires  and saying: “Where is this promised presence of his? Why, from the day our forefathers fell asleep in death, all things are continuing exactly as they were from creation’s beginning.”

2 Peter 3:3,4

The global refugee crisis presents an enormous challenge for healthcare provision, and supporting vulnerable refugees and migrants…

 But know this, that in the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here. For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, haughty, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, disloyal, having no natural affection, not open to any agreement, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, without love of goodness, betrayers, headstrong, puffed up with pride, lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God, having an appearance of godliness but proving false to its power;+ and from these turn away.  

2 Tim 3:1-5;
13 Look! He will come like rain clouds,
And his chariots are like a storm wind.+
His horses are swifter than eagles.+
Woe to us, for we are ruined!
Jeremiah 4:13
