1. SIN and DEATH are two sides of the same coin; did not originate in man and have their roots in Satan. SIN is the FALLEN NATURE of the devil and DEATH was the SENTENCE passed on him for REBELLION against God, as it is written: “For the WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH…” (Romans 6:23) When it pleased God to reveal Himself to His angels, He brought “…the FIRSTBEGOTTEN into the world, he saith, And LET ALL THE ANGELS OF GOD WORSHIP HIM” (Hebrews 1:6) Satan denied the REVELATION of God in the FIRSTBEGOTTEN and with LIES led a third of the heavenly hosts in REBELLION against Jesus Christ, “…the ONLY BEGOTTEN of the Father,..” (John 1:14 ; Revelation 12:4) The REBELLION failed and Satan became SIN, that is, incompatible with RIGHTEOUSNESS of God. Consequently, the SENTENCE of DEATH was passed on him, to perish in the LAKE OF FIRE (Revelation 20:10)
2. SIN is essentially REBELLION against the REVELATION of God in Jesus Christ. LIES, MURDER, ADULTERY, IDOLATORY, etc., are the FRUITS of SIN. Those who do these are CONTAMINATED and OPPRESSED by SIN, as it is written: “Wherefore BY THEIR FRUITS YE SHALL KNOW THEM” (Matthew 7:20) When Eve LISTENED to the devil, the human race was contaminated with SIN. When she BELIEVED the tempter, the SENTENCE of DEATH came into the world. At the appointed time, God MANIFESTED Himself in Jesus Christ to deliver us from bondage to SIN and DEATH. Those who BELIEVE the revelation of God MANIFEST in FLESH are delivered from SIN and DEATH to IMMORTALITY. If any man denies the offer of SALVATION in Jesus Christ, he is guilty of SIN and CONDEMNED to DEATH in the LAKE OF FIRE, as the Bible says: “Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:” (Matthew 25:41)
3. I warn everyone that cares to listen, the COMING of the Lord is at hand. In the twinkling of an eye, the King of kings shall appear in glory clouds to receive His Saints. I enjoin you, while there is yet time, to receive the SALVATION that is in Jesus Christ today and be free of SIN and SENTENCE of DEATH, amen.
