Hath God Said
By David J. Stewart
“Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?” —Genesis 3:1
Carefully notice Satan's method. The serpent said to Eve, “hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?” That is NOT what God said. The serpent LIED. Here's what God said to Eve in Genesis 2:16... “And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat.” Satan is a big liar. God said that Said Adam and Eve could eat from every tree in the garden, except one. Satan comes along and perverts God's Word, trying to convince Eve that God said something different.
It seems everywhere we turns these days, we are hearing those same demonic words in our ear... HATH GOD SAID? So many people are attempting to question whether or not the Bible really means what it says. Is homosexuality really a sin since it's a form of love? Isn't Christian feminism a good thing? Is abortion morally acceptable in certain situations? Is Rock Music ok in the church if it lures teens into church? Isn't violence on TV a good tension release therapy? Isn't divorce a good thing when husband and wife are miserable living together? Honestly, anything can be justified if you're willing to cast aside the plain commands of God's Word.
God told Adam and Eve in the simplest of terms... do not eat of the forbidden fruit. They knew what God expected of them. Eve started to rationalize and became her own worst enemy, and Adam's enemy as well.
Eve's 3 Excuses to Sin
From the evils of murderous abortion to vile homosexuality, Americans have excused their sins. In Genesis 3:6 Eve had at least 3 good reasons IN HER OWN MIND why she should sin:
- She saw that the tree was good for food.
- It was pleasant to the eyes.
- She had convinced herself that it was a tree to be desired to make one wise.
Eve became her own worst enemy. Sound familiar? If Eve had only purposed in her heart to obey the Word of God, she wouldn't have succumbed to temptation. Where was the serpent when Adam and Eve were expelled from the Garden of Eden? He was no where to be found. Isn't this the way people are too? When troubles arise and the fun stops, your friends all start to disappear one by one until they're all gone. Adam and Eve were left broken, suffering in pain, working in the hot sun in turmoil and paying for their ONE SIN.
The serpent's only goal was to cause Eve to disobey God, knowing that she would bring down Adam, and the human race. Satan is no different today. He attacks the woman of the home, knowing that she'll bring down her husband and destroy the family. This is why God hates feminism with a passion. Feminism is rebellion against God in the home, in the church and in society when women refuse to be submissive to masculine authority. Take away the women from Pentecostal churches today and the Charismatic Movement would cease to exist. There's nothing wrong with America that couldn't be solved if women would get right with God. We need some mamas to teach their children to have faith in God once more.
"The spiritual life of a nation, city, town, school, church, or home never rises any higher than the spiritual life of women." —Dr. R.G. Lee (Payday Someday)
It is a sad day in America that so many women are attacking the Bible, twisting the Scriptures in an attempt to justify divorce, lesbianism, feminism, witchcraft, immodesty and rebellion in the home. Eve destroyed her husband, her children, her family and every generation to follow, because she RATIONIZATION why it was ok to disobey God. Think about that. Women today who make light of abortion are doing the same thing as Eve.
Women who dress immodestly, wearing pants and inappropriate attire, are disobeying God's Word. God commands women in 1st Timothy 2:9 to dress in modest apparel. Many women enjoy dressing immodestly to tease men. It is evil beyond words. No wonder America is in such a moral mess today. Put some clothes on! Sadly, American society has become accustomed to filth and perversion. Judgment Day is coming!
From the homosexual community to the those bringing worldly music into the church, they are all buying into the lie of the Devil... HATH GOD SAID?
We don't need to question what God said. The Bible speaks loud and clear. We don't need any new corrupt bibles which remove the word “sodomite” completely, like the New International Version. You can keep your homosexual-friendly bible old Devil, I'll stick with the proven and tried King James Bible.
Please don't make the same grave mistake and commit the same sin as Eve, who allowed Satan to raise doubts in her mind concerning the Word of God.
