“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. “ ~John 10:10
In Chapter 10 of John, it is written that Satan came only to steal, kill and destroy. He is an expert at this! If you’ve already had things stolen, you know how bad the feeling of loss is.
What do you think Satan came to steal? He came to steal dreams, families, health, marriages, peace and hope. Yes, but actually all of theses things are just consequences of the real devil-theft. Satan came to steal, kill and destroy the life of God inside the man.
In Chapter 2 of the Book of Genesis, verses 7 and 8, it is written that God breathed into the man’s nostrils the breath of life. Life came from God and He put His essence inside the man. Breath of life in Greek: “zoe”, means life of God.
Many people think, “My life is quiet; why do I need God?”
We need to open our mind and heart to understand that God not only wants to give us benefits. We need to realize that there is life of God inside of us.
God wants to give you what you need and much, much more.
When God breathed inside the man, something got out of Him and got into the man. This is stronger and deeper than what we can imagine.
Do you know why God breathed into the nostrils of the man? Because oxygen enters by the nostrils and it brings life. God breathed at the right place: where the life God was giving to the man had to get in.
The devil did not accept this situation, and with sin, the life of God inside Adam and Eve died. The communion was over.
Satan’s intention was that man would multiply without the essence of God. The fact that man could breathe did not disturb him, but Satan shakes whenever he sees people having relationship and intimacy with God.
The question is: if the Spirit of God is missing, are we missing everything?
