WHAT WAS THE MINDSET OF ADAM AND EVE? Genesis 3:5-6 For God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” 6 When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was desirable to make one wise, she took from its fruit and ate; and she gave also to her husband with her, and he ate.
THEY WANTED TO BE LIKE GOD. Now we have a world full of self idolization becoming our own idol and our own god. This is called worship of self. What happened to Herod when he accepted the title god?
21 On an appointed day Herod, having put on his royal apparel, took his seat on the rostrum and began delivering an address to them. 22 The people kept crying out, “The voice of a god and not of a man!” 23 And immediately an angel of the Lord struck him because he did not give God the glory, and HE WAS EATEN BY WORMS AND DIED.
ISAIAH 43:10 “You are My witnesses,” declares the Lord,
“And My servant whom I have chosen,
So that you may know and believe Me
And understand that I am He.
BEFORE ME THERE WAS NO GOD FORMED,
AND THERE WILL BE NONE AFTER ME.
