Text: John 3:7
Introduction: Throughout history there have been numerous accounts of organized killings on a massive scale. We aren’t just talking about 100 people…WE’RE TALKING MILLIONS! Even though this has taken place throughout history it is a serious perversion of the Will of God!
Genocide- The deliberate killing of people who belong to a particular racial, political, or cultural group.
I. In the day you eat thereof…
A. Thou shalt surely die (story of man’s beginning)
-God did this for man’s safety. He doesn’t want wickedness forever!
-God is holy and runs competition with NO ONE!
-God loved Adam & Eve…but they still died BECAUSE of disobedience.
II. The Old Man Must Die!
A. Romans 6:6- Knowing this, that our old man is CRUCIFIED with Him, that the body of sin might be DESTROYED, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
B. We must remember that to whomsoever we yield ourselves to we are the slaves of. That’s why God warns us he that continues in sin is of the devil and will have the same fate as all the enemies of God.
-Kill the old man before he damns your soul!
III. The New Man Must Live!
A. 2 Cor. 5:17–Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a NEW creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new!
-I wonder if Paul just got up and danced after writing such beautiful words!
B. Your enemy can’t defeat you if you know who you are. And you are a NEW creature! Bought with the Blood of God! And the Treasure of Heaven now lives within every believer!
THE OLD MAN IS DEAD!
LONG LIVE THE NEW MAN!
IV. There Will Be Peace On Earth
A. When the cause of chaos is gone (Proverbs 22:10)
-“Peace” in ancient Hebrews means destroy the authority that establishes chaos
-The devil, every evil influence, and every sinner will burn forever in the Lake of Fire…
B. While the Children of the Most High will burn with excitement in the presence of God and all the Holy Angels! Ruling the nations in righteousness for all eternity!
