Message 5: The Fall of Man and Man’s Need of Salvation

C. The fall of man:

  1. Satan deceived man, causing him not to depend upon God, but rather to depend upon something other than God—Gen. 3:5.
  2. Satan’s way of deceiving man was by causing man to question God, His word, His heart and His intention—Gen. 3:3–6.

Genesis 2:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, of it you shall not eat; for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.

Genesis 3:3-6 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the middle of the garden, God has said, You shall not eat of it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die. 4 And the serpent said to the woman, You shall not surely die! 5 For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will become like God, knowing good and evil. 6 And 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 to be desired to make oneself wise, she took of its fruit and ate; and she also gave some to her husband with her, and he ate.


Read over the outline points and verses above and use these for your prayer to spend time with the Lord in the Word in the morning. After your prayer time, jot down in your notebook one or two things that the Lord touched you with.
