Bible Study Prelude: Gen, Chron, Paul.

Genesis 1:1-10
1.)    In the beginning God created Heaven and the Earth
2.)    And the earth was without form and void; and the darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
3.)    And God said, let there be light: and there was light.
4.)    And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
5.)    And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.’
6.)    And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
7.)    And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above firmament: and it was so.
8.)    And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.
9.)    And God said, let the waters under heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.
10.) And God called the dry land Earth: and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.

To forsake it all to know you my Glorious God,
To forsake all to know you,
My Glorious God,
My Rock, and Savior

What day did God make the Tree of Life, and the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil?
Where is the Gates of Eden?
Understand the Area of Syria, the Hijaz Mountain Range, and Havilah.
Understand Turkey, and north of Turkey.
Understand Israel, and her surroundings.
Read the KITĀB AL-MAGĀLL, and write a theory essay on it.

Genesis 2:16-17
16.) And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:
17.) But of three of knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thout eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

My shield is God Most High,
Who saves the upright in heart.
Psalm 7:10

Chronicles 16:10-12
10.) Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD.
11.)  Seek the LORD and his strength, seek his face continually.
12.)  Remember his marvelous works that he hath done, his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth;

Chronicles 16 31-33
31.) Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice: and let men say among the nations, the LORD reigneth.
32.) Let the sea roar, and the fullness thereof: let the fields rejoice and all that is therein.
33.) Then shall the trees of the wood sing out at the presence of the LORD, because he cometh to judge the earth.

What is Heaven?
What is the roaring of the fullness of the LORD?
Where is the presence of the LORD?

Psalm 24:4
He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.

How can my heart become clean after years of cursing, sin, masturbation, thoughts of death, violence, and hatred?

Freedom from the Law
7 Brothers and sisters, I’m talking to you as people who know the Law. Don’t you know that the Law has power over someone only as long as he or she lives? 2 A married woman is united with her husband under the Law while he is alive. But if her husband dies, she is released from the Law concerning her husband. 3 So then, if she lives with another man while her husband is alive, she’s committing adultery. But if her husband dies, she’s free from the Law, so she won’t be committing adultery if she marries someone else. 4 Therefore, my brothers and sisters, you also died with respect to the Law through the body of Christ, so that you could be united with someone else. You are united with the one who was raised from the dead so that we can bear fruit for God. 5 When we were self-centered, the sinful passions aroused through the Law were at work in all the parts of our body, so that we bore fruit for death. 6 But now we have been released from the Law. We have died with respect to the thing that controlled us, so that we can be slaves in the new life under the Spirit, not in the old life under the written Law.

The function of the Law
7 So what are we going to say? That the Law is sin? Absolutely not! But I wouldn’t have known sin except through the Law. I wouldn’t have known the desire for what others have if the Law had not said, Don’t desire to take what others have.[a] 8 But sin seized the opportunity and used this commandment to produce all kinds of desires in me. Sin is dead without the Law. 9 I used to be alive without the Law, but when the commandment came, sin sprang to life, 10 and I died. So the commandment that was intended to give life brought death. 11 Sin seized the opportunity through the commandment, deceived me, and killed me. 12 So the Law itself is holy, and the commandment is holy, righteous, and good.

Living under the Law
13 So did something good bring death to me? Absolutely not! But sin caused my death through something good so that sin would be exposed as sin. That way sin would become even more thoroughly sinful through the commandment. 14 We know that the Law is spiritual, but I’m made of flesh and blood, and I’m sold as a slave to sin. 15 I don’t know what I’m doing, because I don’t do what I want to do. Instead, I do the thing that I hate. 16 But if I’m doing the thing that I don’t want to do, I’m agreeing that the Law is right. 17 But now I’m not the one doing it anymore. Instead, it’s sin that lives in me. 18 I know that good doesn’t live in me—that is, in my body. The desire to do good is inside of me, but I can’t do it. 19 I don’t do the good that I want to do, but I do the evil that I don’t want to do. 20 But if I do the very thing that I don’t want to do, then I’m not the one doing it anymore. Instead, it is sin that lives in me that is doing it.

21 So I find that, as a rule, when I want to do what is good, evil is right there with me. 22 I gladly agree with the Law on the inside, 23 but I see a different law at work in my body. It wages a war against the law of my mind and takes me prisoner with the law of sin that is in my body. 24 I’m a miserable human being. Who will deliver me from this dead corpse? 25 Thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then I’m a slave to God’s Law in my mind, but I’m a slave to sin’s law in my body.

When our lives are slaves to Sin, we become, lifeless beings, with no clue what is real or not. We live in a trance that is so dead, so rotten and ugly that it’s depressing.  But with Christ, we are no longer of the Law of Sin, we are in the Grace of God. Which abounds as Paul repeatedly reminds us, is not a joke, and is more than enough.

I know it’s hard to realize that, but it is enough for us to put off the corruptible man, and put on the incorruptible immortal. I believe that Paul makes this more clearer than all of the apostles, 
on this specific issue.

Corruptible vs Incorruptible
