When Adam and Eve fell in the garden of Eden all creation was affected by the Fall. Now we can blame them for what happened but the same might have happened to us when tempted by the devil. God had provided a way of escape but the temptation was too great to prevent them from eating of the tree of good and evil. Jesus was slain before the foundation of the world and came to fulfil this plan on earth. The devil thought he had won but God reversed the curse on the Cross. Few of us appreciate this great reversal. We continue to live as if we are still bound. God set us free from the curse two thousand years ago. Yet we continue to choose to eat from the tree of good and evil.
At Calvary all my sins were cancelled. All my diseases were healed. I was restored to my original sate. The Bible says we are a new creation in Him. The old is past and the new has come. This is the revelation we need to live that abundant life here on earth. We will continue to face temptation but God has provided a way of escape. Eat from the tree of life and live. The tree of life is Jesus. We are grafted into Him and now we can live through Him. There is no other way to live His life on earth but through His Spirit who lives in us. What a wonderful plan of redemption.
When we partake of the communion remember the work on the Cross. This reversed all that was stolen from us. Now it is up to us to draw from the river of life and be made whole. There is no other healing balm available but through this sacrifice of Jesus on the Cross. The devil was defeated once and for all and he is destined for hell fire. He knows it and we have to remind him of this. Till Jesus returns we have to reclaim all that was lost and restore His Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. This is our assignment and calling wherever we maybe. Let us join hands and proclaim this victory for all to hear and be saved.
