The First Sacrifice
January 19, 2014 Message Title: The First Sacrifice Part 3 of The Scarlet Thread series Pastor Ayars Scripture— Genesis 3:20-21  The man called his wife’s name Eve, because she was the mother of all living.  And the LORD God made for Adam and for his wife garments of skins and clothed them. Main Idea—The Scarlet Thread Contains Four Dominant Truths The Four Dominant Truths— The Creation of Man by the Direct Act of God The Fall—Original Sin—Total Depravity The Righteous Wrath of God Salvation Through Blood Atonement Creation—the clear testimony of Scripture is that God created male and female. He prescribes their duties, boundaries, and the unique structure of marriage. Jesus teaches this when he disputes the Pharisees. (Mark 10:1-9) Those who do not want to submit to God need to find another explanation for how we got here—evolution. It matters: No creation, no Adam and Eve. No Adam and Eve, no Garden. No Garden, no original sin. No original sin, no need for a savior. Fall—Man was created with a will. Our worship of God would be meaningless if we could not choose anything else. Their natures were exposed: first innocence, then corruption. They blamed-“the woman you gave me” “The serpent you made…” Wrath—response of a holy God’s hatred for sin. Taught in both the Old and New Testaments. Blood Atonement—God’s justice requires a sacrifice of blood. God killed animals to get the skins he provided to Adam and Eve. We need a “covering” as well to propitiate God’s wrath. Application Time— What “fig leaves” were you using in the past to cover up transgressions and make us look good? How is grace allowing you to be more honest about yourself and your need for God? Fill in the blank: If ever I cover up, it is usually in the area of ______________.
