Genesis 2:7 tells us, “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” (KJV) When God created Adam out of the dust of the ground his body and soul were dead. It was the breath of life that brought forth life into that body and, into that soul.From that moment on humans were not supposed to die; we were supposed to live forever. The spirit in us is our deepest part of us. Life itself flows out of our spirit. If our spirit leaves our bodies, we are instantly dead.
In the New Testament we also have examples that the spirit in us is what gives life to the body. In Luke 8:41 a leader of Synagogue came to Jesus. This man’s 12-year-old daughter was dying, and he was desperate. He asked Jesus to come to his house. Before Jesus could get to her, the little girl died. However, Jesus stated that the girl was just sleeping. In Luke 8:52-55 the Bible tells us,
Now they were all weeping and lamenting for her; but He said, “Stop weeping, for she has not died, but is asleep.” 53 And they began laughing at Him, knowing that she had died. 54 He, however, took her by the hand and called, saying, “Child, arise!” 55 And her spirit returned, and she got up immediately; and He gave orders for something to be given her to eat. (NASB 1995)
Sin brought a drastic and tragic change; sin brought forth death. That should not surprise us for we know that the wages of sin is dead according to Romans 6:23. After Adam and Eve sin God told them in Genesis 3:19, “…For you are dust, And to dust you shall return.” (NASB 1995) The sin of Adam and Eve spread like wildfire starting with Cain killing his own brother Abel. Adam and Eve walked with God in the cool of the day in perfect harmony and relationship with Him (Genesis 3:8) However by Genesis 6:1-8 we see sin contaminating the Body, the soul and the spirit of every human being; only Noah was found righteous.
Now it came about, when men began to multiply on the face of the land, and daughters were born to them, 2 that the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves, whomever they chose. 3 Then the Lord said, “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, because he also is flesh; nevertheless his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.” 4 The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who wereof old, men of renown. Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.6 The Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. 7 The Lord said, “I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, from man to animals to creeping things and to birds of the sky; for I am sorry that I have made them.” 8 But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord. (NASB 1995)
What we saw here were fallen Angels raping the beautiful daughters of men as they pleased. Don’t think for a minute that these women were voluntarily giving themselves away; this was a horrendous act. The sexual intercourse between these fallen angels and women brought forth an evil species; the Nephilim (Giants). Satan was able to successfully change what God promise in Genesis 3:15,
And I will put enmity
between you and the woman,
and between your offspring and hers;
he will crush your head,
and you will strike his heel.”
Our bodies were visibly corrupted as these Nephilims were giants; they had a different DNA and a different composition. Our souls were also corrupt as we can see, “…every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” That means that our mindset, the way we think, our decision-making and our emotions were damage greatly. The human race is dealing with a corrupt spirit within themselves. Now our worship belongs to the devil and not to God. The essence of the human race was altered, therefor, God needed to wipeout the whole earth from these Nephilims. The problem is that the Bible tells us that that “…The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward.” What makes us think that Satan will not do this again; there is plenty of biblical evidence that these giants.
In Number 13 God tells Moses to send 10 men to spy the promise land. Eight of these men came back terrified of what they saw. In Numbers 13:31-33 tells us,
But the men who had gone up with him said, “We can’t attack those people; they are stronger than we are.” 32 And they spread among the Israelites a bad report about the land they had explored. They said, “The land we explored devours those living in it. All the people we saw there are of great size. 33 We saw the Nephilim there (the descendants of Anak come from the Nephilim). We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them.” (NIV)
In First Samuel 15:1-3 God tells the Soul through the prophet Samuel,
Samuel said to Saul, “I am the one the Lord sent to anoint you king over his people Israel; so listen now to the message from the Lord. 2 This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘I will punish the Amalekites for what they did to Israel when they waylaid them as they came up from Egypt. 3 Now go, attack the Amalekites and totally destroy[a] all that belongs to them. Do not spare them; put to death men and women, children and infants, cattle and sheep, camels and donkeys.’” (NIV)
These Amalekites were giants; notice that just like with the flood, God also ordered the killing of all animals. I have no doubts that these animals were altered to make them bigger for food. God was not only revealing himself through the children of Israel, but he was also judging the land and fighting these giants.
Out of that precious spirit our inner most expression also flows. If we are born again, we are able to worship God in spirit and in truth (John 4:24). Our spirit is corrupt when we fall into idolatry. Idolatry is to worship anything else outside of God. Idolatry is the worse sin of all. Idolatry is what caused the fall of Israel. Idolatry is the worse sin because the innermost part of us is prostituted.
The first two commandments are dealing with idolatry not to have any other god before Jehovah and not make idols (Exodus 20). The whole Law is about loving God above all things (Mark 12). Revelation 18 describes the idolatry of the world; how the world has committed adultery with Babylon (The secular world). There is a cry in Revelation 18:4 for folks to get out of such idolatry.
Your idolatry is manifested in the way you spend your money or resources (Matthew 6:21), in the way you spend your time (Ephesians 5:15-17), in what you talk about (Luke 6:45) and in whom you are around with (First Corinthians 15:33 / Proverbs 18:24).
I strongly believe that the devil will do the atrocity he did in Genesis 6. I believe he is doing it already; but he will do it at a larger scale; not as obvious; as I don’t think they will be giants, but the evidence that they are Nephilims is that these are folks whose only delight is in doing evil continually.
Beloved, the bottom line is that our spirit must be born again to escape the wrath of God as the direct consequence of our idolatries. In John 3:3-5 Jesus tells us,
“Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.”
4 “How can someone be born when they are old?” Nicodemus asked. “Surely they cannot enter a second time into their mother’s womb to be born!”
5 Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit. 6 Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. (NIV)
Are you born again, do you have a new spirit within you or is your spirit corrupt with idolatry? God desires to give you eternal life with Him. God desires for you to be born again; for your spirit to worship him above all things, for you to have a relationship with Him. Are you feeling the prompting of His Spirit within you? Do you feel that God is addressing the condition of your heart right now? Are you willing to repent of your sins? Do you believe that Jesus died for your sins and that God the Father raised him from the dead on the third day? Then God is already doing a deep work in your heart. Are you willing to confess what God is already doing in you? Pray this prayer,
“Jesus, I believe that you died and that the Father resurrected you on the third day. I believe the good news, you died for my sins. I confess my sins today, please forgive me. I thank you that today I am born again, that my spirit is now alive, that I belong to you. Thank you that I am now a part of the family of God. In Jesus name, amen.”
