don’t follow the first Adam

Sin & Death did not enter into the world because Adam forgot to encourage, provide, fellowship, or work. It’s when men abdicate their role to Protect and Discipline, that they are following the first Adam, instead of the second Adam, Jesus Christ. 

It’s much easier to follow a woman and keep everything soft and emotionally positive 25/8/375 days a year no matter what the serpent is doing or what Spirit of the Lord is saying… Instead of doing the difficult uncomfortable work of challenging the enemy and disciplining those that listen to the enemy. But that’s the reason for the mess that we’re in.

I’m not saying encouragement and other forms of leadership are wrong… By all means carry on in those good works. But as men, we cannot avoid the more difficult activities of protection and discipline when those matters arise unexpectedly… because eventually it’s the man that will be held responsible, not the woman. Because Adam was not deceived, Adam was disobedient, which is worse, and it was disobedience that brought sin & death into the world.

1 Timothy 2

12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.

13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve.

14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.

Adam was not deceived, Adam was disobedient. Here was Adams disobedience:

– he refused to protect the woman from the serpent

– he refused to discipline the woman for listening to the serpent

– he refused to discipline or stop the woman from following the serpent

– he listened to the woman and followed her in obeying the serpent

Romans 5
12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned…

19 For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.
