The Night Is Far Spent

Depravity of Man, Righteousness Of God,
& A Tidbit Of Thought
Depravity of Man:
The depravity of humanity shows us that a Divine God exists. Shortly after humankind was “created” by God’s existence, our fallen nature has been waging war against the Creator due to Adam and Eve’s sin against the Almighty. The Book of Genesis backs up the teaching that humanity has ever since been waging war against our beloved Creator.
“And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.” Genesis 2:16-17.
During man’s first recorded history of our existence, God put Adam and Eve in a perfect utopia. The environment designed in Eden would be in continuous harmony with nature, and all living species, small and large, weak and strong, lived in absolute peace. Jehovah only had one established rule. This rule was simple. “But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.” (17).
Before the rebellion started by Adam and Eve, all life served the Lord in absolute harmony, as all life could see God’s love by His willingness to create life on Earth. The entire created order naturally bowed with servitude onto Jehovah God. All big animals and small animals laid down with each other without strife. Hunting wasn’t needed for survival as death was not yet in existence as all animals and man lived off plentiful vegetation. Ultimately this drastically changed once Adam and Eve spiritually died by their new awakening of knowledge of “good & evil.” Adam and Eve would also as well get punished with now being forced to physically die as a punishment for disobeying God’s one ordained law. This punishment of physical death was do to no being able to access anymore of the tree of life which gave them eternal life. “And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and how, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever: Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to kee the way of the tree of life.” Genesis 3:22-24. This violated ordinance occurred once Eve gave in to the serpent’s lies when she willingly chose to eat of the forbidden fruit. This fall also included Adam has he would eventually get seduced by Eve, Biblical Reference: “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.” “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.” Genesis 3:4-6. This new awakening by Adam and Eve was for sure coded genetically within humanity. Why? Because of the newly founded knowledge that was received by eating the “fruit,” which ended up costing them both by being cast out of an eternal perfected utopia in Eden’s garden by the created ordained provenance of God. This newly bonded genetic virus and spiritual death have subsequently passed down to every generation of humankind. The Holy Bible teaches this throughout God’s entire scriptural teachings. “Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.” Psalms 51:5.
You see, dear reader, throughout the entire Holy Scriptures, God teaches us that the fall of humanity explains why we are living in a never-ending spiral fall of sin. You see, once Adam and Eve ate from the only tree not allowed by God for consumption, this disobedience opened up the eyes of Adam and Eve for evil, and at that very moment, the depravity of man’s new condition began. This condition was the fall of humankind against God. This condition was also the new natural biological state as man’s genetics would be changed and require a physical death of all life and spiritual death for humanity. This depravity is the reason why a child grows up and eventually physically dies. This depravity is the reason why we have cancer (diseases (HIV/AIDS &, etc.) ), birth abnormalities (disabilities), chemical addictions (drugs & alcoholism), mental addictions (gambling &, etc.), lying, stealing, abuse, murder, etc. Put, because man’s eyes were awakened (genetically) of “evil knowledge” as verse 17, chapter 2 of Genesis proclaims. Humanities nation-states also illustrate humankind’s depravity as various nations are always thriving for wars and rumors of wars. The design of man’s needed military is a prime example of our species depravity. Primary Example: Military might (power) is a thriving force required for an ungodly people, from ancient wooden swords & ships, to now modernized military advancements of current weaponry (automatic machine guns, tanks, bombers, metal-warships, chemical & biological weapons (COVID 19?), laser weapons, the atom bomb to more advance nuclear weaponry). Even President Donald John Trump signed the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act, which authorized the establishment of Space Force. Now our depravity can start the beginning stages of weaponizing space. Space Force has become the sixth branch of the armed forces of the United States of America. Leading nations will follow suit as they claim their weaponry is the mechanism needed for so-called lasting peace. Humankind’s authorities will never limit its potential of creating more ways to continue their spiral of militarized approval of death.
Although military defense is a necessarily required function for any sovereign nation’s survival (For a just people and an unjust people), since we are an evil species fallen under a sinful nature, it illustrates man’s heretical depravity. One can not explain it any-other-way. No government has any exception. It is a survival mechanism completely as natural as lions in Africa’s jungles using its claws and teeth as a weapon of defense to protect its needs and interests. This survival mechanism will continue until God stops it by destroying the wicked and redeeming God’s faithful men.
“The Earth is utterly broken down, the Earth is clean dissolved, the Earth is moved exceedingly. The Earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again.” Isaiah 19:20.
Are these two verses above illustrating the potential of man’s evilness by affecting the Earth to be heavily damaged at some point? Our technology is advancing so rapidly that the potential to destroy the planet is virtually here. Image for an example: The Death Star in the thrilling adventures of Star Wars: The New Hope. Such potential power source capable of destroying entire planets. As the trilogies and independent, stand-alone movies like Rogue One film, nickname and illustrate such a weaponry machine as a “A Planet Killer”, is what shows the heart of man in actual reality seeks. Death and more death. Never-ending death is the virus humanity got injected within our genetics. Think about the thousands of known nuclear bombs the United States, Russia, and China have; this does not include all other nation-states like North Korea? Imagine the destructive nature these bombs could do if another global war were to break out in an age of weapons of mass destruction? Take this seriously because I assure all the listeners who read these articles that the Holy Bible will not be proven wrong.
During the Presidential Administration of Bill Clinton, people across the United States signed a petition to have the Pentagon looking into creating an actual non-fictional Death Star. Although most individuals did not take the petition seriously, to even proclaim the notation, the USA’s citizens need this for national security only illustrates man’s wicked hearts. The craving of death is upon man’s souls who do not understand God’s gift of eternal life by His merciful grace. These same people might desire eternal life, but their actions only spring forth the stench of rotting flesh.
You see, dear reader, humanity was injected with a killer virus that leads to physical death and, more importantly, a spiritual death. This virus is more deadly than all of nature’s viruses we can receive biologically here on Earth. What? Viruses ranging from syphilis, The Flu, COVID, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) will NEVER be as deadly as the virus we inherited by Adam and Eve. What is this virus?. Answer: A virus that kills humanity not just physically but spiritually. The Book of Genesis is NOT playing games. Once Adam and Eve broke the only law at their time, eating the forbidden fruit, their eyes were open to evil. This evil is that virus. This virus is deadlier then any living microorganism we as a living mechanism might receive biologically on Earth. This virus KILLS and is so destructive that the only cure for it is the Blood of Jesus Christ. The sole other remedy to stop the spread of this lethal virus is a REAL QUARANTINED. That quarantine is the separation from the Living God. That separation is the eternal flames of fire (HELL) where all the pollution, filth, SIN must be stored on the day of wrath from an Eternal Righteous Godhead.
From a scientific standpoint, we can readily see this in our lives. All men have lied; all men have stolen; men always thrive on violating God’s natural law. From adultery to murder, nothing is new under the sun. Indeed NOTHING AT ALL. Humanity seeks the desire of their flesh. The flesh is rotten to its core. The ungodly are indeed the walking dead upon us; they hunger nothing but death. Purity is an impossibility for man. No antidote will ever get formulated to grant men everlasting life that walketh under the same conditions that their flesh currently is bonded with. The only antidote that can stop this death is the purity of God’s Son, Jesus Christ Blood. A man who knew no SIN. A man who had crushed SIN by His sinless perfection. His Blood is sincerely the fountain of youth, the fountain of enteral life. Welcome to reality, dear reader. Destruction is upon humankind. The only doctor who can heal us from the SIN virus is Jesus Christ. Period, period, and PERIOD.
What humanity needs to strive out this virus is a physician. Not an earthly physician but a spiritual-physician, God. As the Bible proclaims the following verses below to think upon,
“But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.” Isaiah 53:5.
“When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.” Mark 2:17.
“But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick. But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.” Matthew 9:12.
Righteousness Of God:
The Holy Bible proclaims without any doubt that the God of the Bible is indeed righteous. The Holy Scriptures teach us that God is Holy, and nothing in existence is like Him. This God is indeed unique. Nothing is like the God of the Bible. Why? Put, because He is the One True Holy God. His Deity is perfect without sin, and He can not fail. No faults are with the God of scriptures. This righteous God who created all of existence will be given praise by those who willfully serve Him, and those who choose the path of destruction must get separated from God. This separation from God is a fact, and nothing can stop it. One must choose their destiny.
“That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.” Ephesians 4:22-24.
“Therefore thus will I do unto thee, O Israel: and because I will do this unto thee, prepare to meet thy God, O Israel.” Amos 4:12.
A Tidbit Of Thought:
“But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.” Isaiah 64:6.
If someone was too honestly look at the authenticity of the Holy Bible, I would assure all readers that the Bible will not be proven wrong. All other religions ranging from Islam, Buddhist, Catholicism, Mormonism and etc., These groups of false beliefs (false doctrine) dedicate in their teaching that eternal paradise can only be available to those who work-hard-enough to earn salvation. The real God of the actual Holy Scriptures, the Bible teaches the absolute opposite. Humankind is separated from God because He is Holy. The God of the Bible is Righteous. We can not earn our way to heaven by our own works. Why? Because our works are as filthy rags. They fade as a leaf. The iniquities of man are the reason why we are in separation from the One True Godhead. A true believer that is actually SAVED is saved by the realization of their depravity. They are saved because they “who” realize their iniquity (sin) is indeed for a Savior. That Savior was written thousands of years ago in the Old Testament to come as prophesied and fulfilled in the New Testament now. Salvation is a supernatural gift from God. An individual who is lost most be born again. “Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” John 3:1. This new birth is a spiritual birth. God’s merciful grace is how we are saved. A repented heart leads towards God. The un-repented leads towards death. It is a choice. Choose wisely. The costs are high.
Warning! Remember the above verse Amos 4:12 when it states if you are ready to “meet thy God”? Amos 4:12.
