Universal sin and death were released through the fall of Adam. Through his transgression, sin and death entered the creation, which was represented by Adam.
Now this cosmic universal power of sin and death invades the cosmos and the entire creation.
We have been fooled by the powers of this age, into thinking that sin is a personnel calamity, which one does from time to time, which is very offensive to God.
But Paul speaks of sin as an invading enemy of creation, an outside force brought into a reality that was not, before Adams fall.
Sin is a cosmic power, which has invaded the good creation of a good God. It is a hostile force, which was allowed entrance into the creation, which has now marred and disfigured the entire creation.
Sin is an outsider that broke into the creation, resulting in a complete ruin and calamity, of the image bearing good creation, of a loving good God.
Sin is a universally violent force, which the creation is in the grip of. Sin has invaded and violently forced the salves of sin, into doing the will of the master, who is death, who is ruled by the prince of the powers of the air, the spirit that now works in the sons of disobedience.
Once you were dead because of your disobedience and your many sins. 2 You used to live in sin, just like the rest of the world, obeying the devil—the commander of the powers in the unseen world.[a] He is the spirit at work in the hearts of those who refuse to obey God. 3 All of us used to live that way, following the passionate desires and inclinations of our sinful nature. By our very nature we were subject to God’s anger, just like everyone else. Ephesians 2- 1 to 3
Somehow the rulers of this present, but passing evil age, have kept themselves hidden to this profoundly deep mystery of which Paul spoke.
Gods good creation was sold out by Adam, to this prince of this world. Somehow the serpent figure of Genesis took away the birthright from Adam.
Now we are salves to another. We have lost the freedom and liberty, which was given by God to his creatures. This new master of the Adam race is a cruel dictator, who rules his subjects with force and violence. He uses fear and intimidation to control his salves.
This is what this world is under. It is a mystery of the fall. It is hidden to us by nature as the subjects of this dictatorial force, which is hidden in the darkness of this present evil age.
This world is not the enemy of a good and loving God. God came to release this world, which he loves, from this cruel dark hostile force called sin and death, which is ruled by a dark and evil prince, of a dark and evil past, who the bible says sinned from the beginning.
This is a comic war, which we are involved with, it requires spiritual weapons to deal with spiritual realities, who dwell in a cosmic realm called the heavenlies.
We as the church are involved in a cosmic, universal battle, with very evil and real hostile realities, for the rights of this good creation, that a good God created.
God so loved this world that he sent his only Son, as a slave to redeem his good creation.
God does not condemn the man of his creation. God condemns the hostile force of sin and death ,which is the enemy of a good creation, which was created by a good and loving God.
I believe that everything God has done through Christ is only revealed in the revelation of the Cross of Calvary. When one sees the truth of Christ and him crucified, then one sees true reality.
