Bible Reading: Genesis 3:6-9
Adam emanated from God. His body came from the dust. Man is a spirit who lives in the body. He came from God yet he fall. It wasn’t the fruit Adam ate that made him fall prey. He honored the one who gave him the fruit than He who gave him instruction and kept him in the garden. This was the reason he fell. He honored the woman than God.
In the School of Success, what matters is not the manifestation but the intimacy. Adam was lost in the radar of God. Radar is a system for detecting the presence, direction, distance and speed of aircrafts, ships and other objects by sending out pulses of radio waves which are reflected off the object back to the source. Once there is loss in communication, you have lost the radar of God. Once you are not in the range (radar) where God placed you, you are not protected and when God doesn’t see you, you are not saved and it shows that the way god placed you is not the way you are appearing before him.
One sin begets another. An illustration is that of a bee, when you entertain a queen bee, other bees join. When you move below the radar, you will leave the altitude.
DANGERS AND CONSEQUENCES OF HONORING MEN THAN GOD
- Generational Curse. Genesis 3:17-19; 1 Samuel 2:30-33. You will live in perpetual tears when you honor men than God. 1Samuel 3:1
- God replaces the man. Don’t give your spouse, Pastor and Children the honor that belongs to God. 1 Samuel 2:35
- Poverty becomes the lot of such persons. 1 Samuel 2:30; 1 Samuel 3:13.
In conclusion, nobody on earth will be seen by God if he keeps remaining in sin. If God does not see you, you sink. The church is like a man covered by the bees with so much sin and evil. In all, we have to be deliberate in living our Christian life rightly.
