THE BLAME GAME

Today’s Reading: Genesis 3-4

Click scripture link to read online or HERE to listen online (then click the symbol of the audio speaker above the scripture portion).

 

On the lower slope of the Mount of Olives is the Garden of Gethsemane. It is claimed that some of the olive trees here are over 2,000 years old – perhaps these trees were the ones under which Jesus’ disciples slept during the night of His arrest. Like Adam and Eve, no doubt they had excuses for their failure to obey. Jesus had told them to “Watch and pray!” The building  you see in the background is “The Church of All Nations”.

Key Verse: Genesis 3:12

Then the man said, “The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I ate.”

 

A most important Word that Jesus used over and over is “Repent.” Adam and Eve provide us with examples of what repentance is NOT! They attempted to blame others for their sin. Adam blamed both God and Eve. Eve blamed the serpent. The message is, “STOP THE BLAME GAME!” Pray the sinner’s prayer which Jesus guaranteed would make a person right with God: “God, be merciful to me, a sinner” (Luke 18:13). Two verses following the key verse, God, Himself, gives the first prophecy. He speaks of a most unique event to come. All through the Bible in procreation, it’s the seed of the man, e.g. Abraham (Galatians 3:29), but Jesus is the “Seed of the woman” (Genesis 3:15). He crushes Satan. Satan comes in many forms to tempt us. Remind him that his head is crushed by Jesus. Jesus gives us power (authority) to join Him in trampling on the serpent and “Nothing shall by any means hurt you” (Luke 10:19). Confess it! Believe it!

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

Lord Jesus, You and I are “trampling” on the serpent. James wrote,”Resist the devil and he will flee from you” (James 4:7). I do this now, Lord Jesus. The devil has no power over me. In Your authority, Lord Jesus, I pray. AMEN!

 PERSONAL WORDS:

Every day before going live to air with the daily 100 Huntley Street telecast, I would state in front of the other hosts, the on-air guests, and the studio audience, words something like this…”We trample on Satan in Jesus’ Name! We pull down the ‘strongholds’ of the enemy” (2 Corinthians 10:4). On the human level we do not defend ourselves. No defence! No offence!  We are to love one another, whether friend or enemy! “We do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in heavenly places” (Ephesians 6:12). Throughout over 10,000 telecasts, Jesus, our production and administration team, our financial supporters, our on-air guests, our telephone prayer partners (over 10 million phone calls) have confirmed the crushing of Satan’s head, and have watched God accomplish mighty works for time and eternity in the lives of infinitely precious people.

To the current Crossroads team and every reader of my blog, KEEP TRAMPLING!!!,

David

P.S. Speaking of trampling on the enemy, I’m thrilled to let you know of the appointment of the new Crossroads ministry President and CEO…someone who is already known and loved by so many of our long-time 100 Huntley Street viewers…Lorna Dueck. HERE is a link to the official announcement on the 100huntley.com website.

  1. In Adam we were lost … In Christ we gain the victory! In Adam we were led by the carnal mind … In Christ we are guided by the Holy Spirit! In Adam we were in sin, in Christ we are made anew in His righteousness! We have much to rejoice about when we have Jesus as our Lord and Saviour. Thank you Lord for saving us, for being with us, for guiding us … when we first make that decision to put our trust, our faith in You. Amen.

  2. Good News about Lorna Dueck’s appointment as President and CEO!
