DO NOT OPEN THIS
You are just like Adam & Eve!
You see, they made the same mistake that you just did. All they had to follow was one rule, and they disobeyed—JUST LIKE YOU DID! “And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die” (Holy Bible, Genesis 2:16,17, KJV). “She took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat” (Holy Bible, Genesis 3:6, KJVV).
Why did they disobey? For partly the same reason
that YOU JUSTDID—CURIOSITY!
You just had to see what was inside this little paper, didn’t you? And Eve just had to find out for herself what could possibly be so bad about eating a little fruit from that tree! The world has never been the same since that day. “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” (Holy Bible, Romans 5:12, KJV).
What else is there that draws people to disobey,
JUST LIKE YOU DID?
God mentions three things in this world that PULL YOU TO SIN. “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the LUST OF THE FLESH, and the LUST OF THE EYES, and the PRIDE OF LIFE, is not of the Father, but is of the world” (Holy Bible, I John 2:15,16, KJV).
How did that first one, the
LUST OF THE FLESH, affect Eve?
“And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat” (Holy Bible, Genesis 3:6, KJV).
Eve’s flesh was now attracted to the fruit, because she saw it was “good for food.” There is no limit to what people will do to satisfy the FLESH! Whether it is EATING, or IMMORAL RELATIONSHIPS, or ALCOHOL, or DRUGS—people love to “satisfy their flesh.” What about YOU?
How did that second one, the LUST OF THE EYES, affect Eve?
“The woman saw… that it was pleasant to the eyes.” How many people are hopelessly in debt, because something LOOKED TOO GOOD to pass up, and they bought it? How many people are now separated from their husband/wife, because someone else LOOKED TOO GOOD to pass by, and they committed adultery? People love to “satisfy the eyes.” What about YOU? Watch out! God says, “The eye is not satisfied with seeing” (Holy Bible, Ecclesiastes 1:8, KJV). But you probably already knew that from experience, didn’t you?
How did that third one, the PRIDE OF LIFE, affect Eve?
Eve saw it was, “A tree to be desired to make one wise.”
Everyone likes to think he/she is a little smarter than the
next guy. How about YOU? Let’s do a little test to see!
Do you think that you are good enough to get into heaven? Yes? No? God says that you are not. “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Holy Bible, Romans 3:23, KJV). “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” (Holy Bible, Romans 5:12, KJV). The sin nature that was passed down to us by Adam and Eve, was not passed down to Jesus Christ, because He was born of a miraculous virgin birth. Jesus then lived a perfect life, and died on the cross to pay for our sins. He arose victorious from the grave, proving that His pure blood paid the price for all of our sins.
The decision is in your hands.
Will you now repent of your sins and false beliefs, and place your complete trust in the Lord Jesus Christ to save you? “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name” (Holy Bible, John 1:12, KJV).
“Dear Lord Jesus, I do believe that you are the Son of God; that you are God Almighty in the flesh, the Creator of heaven and earth. I do believe that you are the only Savior; that you died on the cross for me, and gave your precious blood to pay my sin debt; and then you arose from the grave the third day. I do now repent of my sins, and receive you as my Savior. Please forgive me, and save my soul. Please raise up my life from sin and shame, and use it now for your glory. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”
Yes, I just asked the Lord Jesus Christ to
save me, and I desire to now live for Him.
God wants you to now openly confess Him by getting baptized under the water at a good Bible-preaching church, and to faithfully attend the services there. If you will write to us, we have some excellent Bible Study booklets to help you learn more.
