Morning Message of Motivation
Leadership Transitions: 10
By Rev Robert Ampiah-Kwofi
The reign of Adam and Eves as the rulers of this earth was cut short by the trickery of an external force.
Genesis 3:1 NKJV
“Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?”
The cunning serpent set out to overthrow God’s system of governing the earth by Adam.
The serpent knew that God had a covenant with Adam.
The serpent knew that Adam’s authority depended on his covenant with God.
The serpent knew that the covenant rested on Adam, not eating from the Tree of knowledge of good and evil.
The serpent knew that if Adam ate of the forbidden fruit, he would lose everything.
The serpent knew that he could not deceive Adam.
1 Timothy 2:14 NKJV:
“And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression.”
The serpent knew that he stood a greater chance of success, if he worked on Eve.
Adam and Eve were living in the dispensation of innocence.
They had no knowledge of good and evil.
They were not aware that evil forces wanted to dethrone them, and steal their blessings.
John 10:10 NKJV
“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”
Unfortunately, innocent people often fall victim to the enemy because they are ignorant of his tricks.
2 Corinthians 2:11 NKJV
“Lest Satan should take advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices.”
Adam and Eve were ignorant of Satan’s tricks.
May the word of God dwell richly in you.
May you stay committed to God. May you overcome all the tricks of the enemy, in Jesus’ name.
