The Nature of Our Heart

Genesis 8:21 And the LORD smelled a sweet savor; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake; for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more everything living, as I have done.

God speaks here that all humans are wicked except Christ Jesus who is perfect human and God. If you start to dig in to the nature of any man you will be surprised with what you will find. You don’t have to go far. Just stop for a second and start to think about your own heart. Most of the time no one wants to look deep in to the nature of his own heart since we already know we are wicked by nature.

One of the reasons that we are wicked by nature is because of the curse we inherit from the first man, Adam. Adam was cursed by God and that curse goes down to generations of men and women till today. Most of the curses we may experience came from the past generations that go all the way to Adam. Some curses are generational. These curses play a vital role in understanding why we act the way we act without Christ.

There are also curses that are present in our lives as a consequence of our sins against the laws of God. The laws of God are from the Word of God. The Bible is the word of God. If we don’t do what the Bible tells us to do, we are under a curse. This is not to say we are destined to be wicked by God. In fact I am saying God paved a way to get out of the nature of our heart. We are our own prisoners tied by wickedness, fear, hate, blasphemy, anger… The gospel is the good news towards all men and women to break the bondage of sin and curses that came from one Man, Adam.

Sin entered in to the world thorough one Man. Before that Adam or Eve didn’t know or commit any sin. But once they committed their first sin, they opened the channel of communication to devil. They started having fellowship with the Devil himself. Before that they had only fellowship with God and God used to visit them in the Heaven and they talked to God as we talk to each other, person to person.

Now Christ entered to the World to break that fellowship with the Devil and restore our relationship with God. There is hope in Christ. When a person is born again of the Spirit of God, the old nature that we inherit from Adam is dead. We are no longer bind to our old way of thinking. We have a new heart that is the vessel of the Holy Spirit. As Paul described it in Romans 5:12, through one man fault, sin entered in to the world, and through one Man, Jesus Christ, sin will be eradicated from the world. At least that is the purpose of Christ coming to Christ. Whether we will believe in him or not is up to us and without believing in him there will not be cancelation of debt.


Romans 5:12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:


13 (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law.


14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.


15 But not as the offence, so also is the free
gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.


16 And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: f

r the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification.


17 For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)


18 Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.


19 For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.


20 Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:


21 That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.

In summary, after we accepted our Lord and savior, Jesus Chris, and be born again from the Spirit of God, we are no longer attached to the old man which had the same characteristics of the first man and was associated with the curses.

As born again Christians, we have freedom from guilt, the ransom of our soul was fully paid, no more fellowship with the devil and a brand new channel of communication with father God was established, praised God, which means instant healing, deliverance and guidance by the Holy Ghost.

Many have believed the sins are forgiven but failed to communicate to the father through the Holy Ghost. Many haven’t experienced the fire of the Holy Ghost that is the power to live and preach the gospel. Many are still living under the darkness of the devils authority since they don’t know their yolks are broken and they are free indeed. Brothers and sisters, if the son of God has made you free, you are free indeed. No evil or principalities have power over you to oppress and rule over your life.

God almighty, we pray that you give us the power of the Holy Ghost with fullness to do the works you gave us more efficiently. Please let us know you better than we do now. We make our selves available to be used and utilized as much as possible. Glorify your name by doing the work you have planned and started in Jesus Name.

Amen!
