Every time man sins he blames the devil
Out of a whole I simply wonder
What is the quota that belongs to the devil?
Can someone please tell me?
Adam was standing right beside Eve
When the tempter came,
The tempter said. ”Eat it is sweet and knowledge enhancing ”
Eve had heard enough, she looked at the fruit, and it pleased her eyes
And she did eat
Adam did not need much persuading; Eve simply passed it to him
And he did eat without a word
‘Oh! Woe is me’, he said when the Lord came looking for him
But alas! It’s too late, the deed is done
Last show of bravado, Adam brazenly blames the Almighty
For giving him a wife and helpmate; ‘what effrontery’!
In the moment, he forgot HE was given THE COMMAND NOT TO EAT THE FRUIT
King David saw that Bath-sheba was beautiful to look upon, desired her
He knew she was married, still he had his way with her, she became with child, which they planned not
When he knew, the king tried to con her husband Uriah to false paternity,
When that failed, he planned for his death.
Where is the devil guilty here, even David acknowledged his guilt
A man strays and abandons his home and family
He daily abuses his wife and child, causing pain and depression every hour by the second
The virtuous woman endures and holds on, hoping against hope that one day all will be well
How much pain can a man endure, how long before the firm resolve wears thin or even finally breaks
Then something drastic, outrageous and totally godless is done and of course who receives the blame again? You guessed right!
Jesus told us we should not be deceived
The journey is not going to be neither a smooth sail nor the ride devoid of bumps; He only assured us that He would always be right there by our side
Even the Apostle Paul acknowledged the battle that goes on between the spirit and the flesh but the WORD tells us what we must do:
James 1:13-16-- LET NO MAN SAY WHEN HE IS TEMPTED, I AM TEMPTED OF GOD: FOR GOD CANNOT BE TEMPTED WITH EVIL, NEITHER TEMPTETH HE ANY MAN: -----
Do I say that it is easy?
Let’s just say that we should begin to accept to pick out first the big log in our eyes before we can even see clearly to remove our brother’s little speck
Like King David; ACCEPT and declare like he did
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
