Fate of man without God
The fate of man without God
Through Adam came the fate of man without God.
Without the understanding of God’s redemption plan through Jesus Christ, man has the same fate and ending as an animal’s everlasting death. Life is meaningless, futile and lacks purpose without the revelation of God’s love for mankind obtained on the cross through the shedding of Jesus’ blood so that we can have abundant life. God’s love and grace through the finished work of Jesus redeemed man from the curse of sin, death, disease, fear and condemnation. The fate of man changed through Jesus Christ.
The following is the fate of man without God found in Ecclesiastes. Your sin nature is because of Adam, not based upon your actions or performance. Thus, also God’s redemption plan giving you the Gift of Righteousness is not based upon your performance but on and through Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection.
18 I said to myself regarding the sons of men, “God is surely testing them in order for them to see that [by themselves, without God] they are [only] animals.” 19 For the [earthly] fate of the sons of men and the fate of animals is the same. As one dies, so dies the other; indeed, they all have the same breath and there is no preeminence or advantage for man [in and of himself] over an animal, for all is vanity. 20 All go to the same place. All came from the dust and all return to the dust. 21 Who knows if the spirit of man ascends upward and the spirit of the animal descends downward to the earth? Ecclesiastes 3:18-21 AMP
17 For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ. Romans 5:17NIV
The redeemed, restored and reconciled fate of man is through Jesus Christ. God’s perfect sacrifice of Jesus Christ was a high price to pay. It was paid for with Jesus’ blood and suffering for all mankind’s sin and disobedience.
For those who put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ’s finished work, they are blessed because all their past, present and future sin has been paid for on the cross. The Divine exchange of man’s sin for God’s righteousness happened on the cross.
With the Divine exchange the benefit package of abundant life begins, as found in Psalm 103. You are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus now. You are in Christ and Christ is in you. HE has given you a spirit of power, love and sound mind, not a spirit of fear. Receive your benefit package.
- 1 Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, O my soul; and all that is [deepest] within me, bless His holy name!
- 2 Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, O my soul, and forget not [one of] all His benefits-
- 3 Who forgives [every one of] all your iniquities, Who heals [each one of] all your diseases,
- 4 Who redeems your life from the pit and corruption, Who beautifies, dignifies, and crowns you with loving-kindness and tender mercy;
- 5 Who satisfies your mouth [your necessity and desire at your personal age and situation] with good so that your youth, renewed, is like the eagle’s [strong, overcoming, soaring]! Psalm 103 AMP
