That’s what happened in the garden of Eden. But prior to this in-cident occurring Lucifer, was expelled or as we like to say kicked out of heaven because he wanted to be God. He was created by God and he wanted to be God to be worshipped as God was being worshipped by the angels he had created. But God is God and he will not share his glory with another. Earth became corrupt because of the pronouncement of God upon it. Man would now have to live by the sweat of his brow. No longer could he walk about in a perfect environment, reach up and pick any kind of fruit he wanted off a tree to eat, now he would have to realize to eat he would have to plant, water, and tend to his plantings.

Mankind ruined a perfect thing when he disobeyed God, and lis-tened to another voice. Today Christians need to be cognizant that there are more than one voice in the world. They are the voice

Archangels – Michael and Gabriel are the two archangels that are mentioned most in scripture. We first find the mention of Gabriel in the book of Daniel 8:16 when Gabriel was sent to explain the vision of the ram and he goat:

“And I heard a man’s voice between the banks of Ulai, which called, and said,
Gabriel, make this man understand the vision.” Here we have one of the visions Daniel is given concerning the great tribulation which is to take place prior to the return of the Son of God. And another time Gabriel came to Daniel was when he was praying and petitioning God, for his people. Daniel 9:21-22 states,

“Yea, whiles I was speaking in prayer, even the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, touched me about the time of the evening oblation. And informed me, and talked with me, and said, O Daniel, I am now come forth to give thee skill and under-

    The ones that walked away could be God’s wrath on sinful humanity “The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them”(Romans 1 18-19). Even though God was aware that this was going to happen he was still upset because instead of having all humanity suffer he sent his son…

    What ultimately causes the fall of man is pride. It is man 's desire to put himself on the same level as God. We see this outright rebellion against God throughout the whole story of salvation history. From the beginning of time when Lucifer defies God by not subjecting himself to the service of God because he wishes to be exalted before God, to the Israelites constantly creating and worshiping idols, showing their lack of trust in God, declaring that their judgment is better that the Lord 's and that they don 't rely on Him in any way, to modern times, when man is constantly trying to put himself on the same playing field as God, and thinks of himself as a deity. As a result of…

    Instead of Jonah rejoicing with God over their repentance, he sat under a tree asking God to kill him. He was despondent that God had spared them even though they had been the people that had destroyed their temple and carried them off their homeland. Jonah gives us lessons on the compassion of God on all people, even those that are characterized by wickedness. One of prophetic community’s dangers is to limit God by developing a superiority complex. We don’t get to define how God will use our voice to bring change.…

    The Old Testament made it clear that man is unable to save himself by showing the increase of sin in exodus that the Lord eventually needed to wash out. Man was unable to save himself from his sins and the world became a dark place that was void of hope and joy. In the New Testament, God sends his son to save us from evil and by the Lord’s death on the cross, believers are given salvation. Examples of the Lord choosing specific people to follow him is seen. While everybody can come to Christ, Christ also shows that it is through him that we are called and not through our good deeds or works.…

    These motifs assist believers in understanding a reoccurring idea which brings out the nuances of that theme generating a greater understanding of missions and its purpose. Two key motifs of mission theology that can be observed throughout scripture include The Kingdom of God and Jesus. There are layers of foundational missions, which is ultimately the Kingdom of God.

    Both of the rebellions were fueled by the feelings of anger and abandonment. The biggest difference is the fact that there was a reason for Satan to be “abandoned” but there was no reason for the creation to be abandoned. The creation was abandoned by Victor who thought that he could play God and this was the way that he rebelled against his creator, God. Victor acted through his knowledge and curiosity and created a “life” that only God is supposed to be able to do. Through the way that his creation turns out it is obvious that his creator was not happy with what was happening, this is shown through the hurt and chaos that the creation brings about.…

    A group of prophets came down (note the term, came down) from Jerusalem. Prophets had the gift of foretelling. The apostles and prophets played an important role in the early life of the church as they laid its foundation as seen in Ephesians 2:20. Speaking of the church Paul says, “having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the corner stone in whom the whole building being fitted together, is growing into a holy temple in the Lord.” Having accomplished their work, the moved off the scene. In New Testament times, the prophets received their word directly from the Lord through the Holy Spirit; today believers receive the Word from the Bible because we have the completed Word of God.…

    The Mosaic Law was created to reduce that sin through rules but Jesus overrode those rules and created a relationship with God through him. No one will be declared righteous in his sight by observing the law (Rom. 3:20). Paul tells the people that they will never be worthy of righteousness through their works because there will always be sin. Through faith in Jesus everyone can be forgiven for all sins committed past, present, and…

    However, I found other difference as well. One difference is whom the angel appeared to. In the gospel of Luke, the angel Gabriel visits Mary and the same angel also visits the shepherds. The shepherds were walking when the angel came to them and told them that a savior had been born and to go see him. They did go see him and each brought a different gift; gold, frankincense, and myrrh.…
