Sample text

This was never the message God intended to convey! But when sin deceives a person, they will think and do incredibly stupid things. Why God Delayed in Giving the Law By the time of Genesis 6:6, sin had become so bad on the face of the earth that the Bible says, And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. God is long-suffering, and for Him to grieve that He even made mankind, people must have trespassed against Him greatly. In Matthew 24:37 Jesus is quoted as saying, But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Adam and Eve should have run to God when they sinned instead of running from Him. But that's the same thing we all tend to do. We run from God and try to get away from Him when we sin or feel unworthy. 5. Deception. Another important effect of sin is that it also blinds or deceives people. The Bible says in Hebrews 3:13 that our hearts become hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. Men's hearts were being hardened to the things of God in the Old Testament. They were getting so far away from God that they were justifying all kinds of sinful actions.

That's where He put His temple and where the ark of the covenant was located. God had commanded His people to worship Him only in Jerusalem. There was a time when the children of Israel rebelled against God and He allowed the northern ten tribes to be taken into captivity by the Assyrians. The two southern tribes, Benjamin and Judah, remained undisturbed on the land because they had maintained worship in Jerusalem. After the northern tribes were taken captive, the king of Assyria sent colonists from Assyria to inhabit the land of the northern ten tribes so the fields wouldn't go to waste.
