Genesis 3:1-5 now the serpent was more crafty than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made and he said to the woman indeed has God said you shall not eat from any tree of the garden? the woman said to the serpent the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat but from the fruit of the tree which is in the middle of the garden God has said you shall not eat from it or touch it or you will die the serpent said to the woman you surely will not die 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 an interesting thing is that Adam was standing right there the whole time while this serpent while Lucifer was talking to his wife Eve and many many times I find men are passive God has not called us to be passive as men God has called us to rise up and to lead our families spiritually God has called us to be the head to be the leader if Adam would have done that this whole thing would have turned out differently all Adam had to do was say wait just a minute Mr. Serpent I’m going to go check with God almighty whom I walk with and talk with daily they could have finished this whole thing by just talking to God and asking Him LORD this serpent says this and this and that what do you say? neither of them did that and it’s just amazing that they believed this deceptive creature that came and said the opposite of what God had said Why was satan so interested in getting them to sin? it wasn’t just to create sin just think about this satan who is Lucufer in heaven had authority in heaven I mean he was an incredibly powerful and beautiful being in Heaven with great authority when he rose up in rebellion against God he lost all his authority he had no authority in Heaven no authority on earth no where to operate he was looking for someone with authority that he could operate through and he realized God has delegated authority to Adam and Eve Genesis 1:28 God said I give you dominion over the earth you rule it so God delegated authority to Adam and Eve why was Lucifer so interested in getting them to sin? because he realized when they sin they voluntarily give up their authority and he could take it and operate on the earth and that is exactly what happened that was why he was so interested in getting them to sin is he was able to capture that delegated authority that God had given to man to rule the earth satan took it now fortunately Yeshua Ha Mashiach Jesus the Messiah took it back when He rose from the dead gave it back to us believers in Him to function on this earth with His authority so satan has no more authority on the earth since Yeshua rose from the dead but you look at what happened here in the garden Adam should have put a stop to that instantly and he could have he sat right there and let this deceptive creature talk to his wife and deceive his wife and she chose to sin and he stood right there and did nothing I find many many men in families are passive spiritually they allow the wife to do all the praying the wife sort of runs everything spiritually that ought not to ever be in a family God has called us as men to rise up and to lead our family by example and so I’m especially speaking to men today God has called you to rise up and lead your business spiritually you should be the one who creates a bible study in your business God has called you to lead your family you should be the one who leads in prayer you should be the one who leads in studying the word of God trains your children covers your wife with spiritual authority God has called us as leaders I know many men feel not capable or not qualified to do that you’re qualified because God made you the head of your family God made you the head of the sphere of influence that He gave you the garden He placed you in He gave you authority to rule in that garden and I just feel an urgency in my spirit today to pray to break the power of spiritual passivity especially in men but really in any of us so is there an area of your life where you’ve been spiritually passive you’ve just been sitting by and letting other people take the lead spiritually or really allowing the enemy to come right into your house and speak to your daughter speak to your son speak to your wife and you passively allow it to happen time to rise up and to be the man of God time to rise up and lead your family by example in godliness in reading the word in loving the LORD with all your heart in blessing people that’s our job as men so I just want to pray Father in the name of Yeshua I break that power of spiritual passivity of being passive and just allowing other people to function and even allowing the enemy to invade our garden Father we take authority over that and listen if you’re relating to this you’re going I have been passive would you just speak these words Father God in the name of Yeshua I repent of my spiritual passivity and today LORD I rise up to take my place in the garden you’ve given me and I will operate in the authority you gave me in the name of Yeshua the Messiah Amen
