Genesis 3: 4-7

Dealing With the Three Temptations of Eve and Adam

Transcript

Genesis 3:4-7 the serpent said to the woman you surely will not die for God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened and you will be like God knowing good and evil when the woman saw that the tree was good for food and that it was a delight to the eyes and that the tree was desirable to make one wise she took from its fruit and ate and she gave also to her husband with her and he ate then the eyes of both of them were opened and they knew that they were naked and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loin cloths there are three 3 temptations that this talking snake brought to Eve and Adam sat right there and watched her do it of course watched her receive this didn’t do anything about it but the 3 temptations were these first one the tree was good for food and what that’s talking about really there are just 3 key temptations the lust of the flesh the lust of the eye and the pride of life so this first one the tree was good for food is lust to the flesh and then a delight to the eyes that one has to do with with the lust of the eye in other words greed wanting something more wanting money wanting things that other people have greed wanting something is the delight to the eyes the lust of the eye and then the third one is desirable to make one wise what is that? pride I don’t want to be under God’s authority I want to be God I want to know everything that God knows I don’t want to abide under anybody I just want to exult myself I want to be the top dog I want to be the king so walking in lust of the eye lust of the flesh and the pride of life these are the 3 things you see this consistently all through the Bible over and over and over 1 John, the book of 1 John talks about this in 1 John chapter 1 that all that’s in the world is the lust of the flesh lust of the eye, and the pride of life so there’s nothing new under the sun the enemy is still using today those 3 things which is basically money, sex, and power to attract people to knock people off their destiny off their purpose so you can expect that the enemy will just use those same 3 things that he used starting right here in the garden with Eve the tree was good for food a delight to the eyes desirable to make one wise lust of the flesh greed lust after something many times sexual things and power pride I want to be in control I want to be in authority I want to be the one that everybody looks to those sorts of things so the question today is in your life is the Holy Spirit speaking to you about any area of lust any area of greed any area of pride I encourage you to just take a couple of minutes and seek God God is there an area of lust or pride or greed operating in my life? I don’t want to be like Eve I don’t want to just go and partake of those things Father I want to repent and so just pray that God I want to repent of whatever area it is I do repent in the mighty name of Yeshua forgive me by His blood and as you go through your life today I believe if there’s any area that God wants to touch of lust, pride or greed He’ll expose it today but it’s just amazing that the enemy used that in the beginning in the garden still uses it to try to impact us today again as you go through your life with God today just be mindful of His spirit all day and love God with all your heart bless people around you and you will make a difference
