19) The Two Paths
AIM: To show the two paths people follow in their response to God’s Salvation plan: Complete obedience or partial obedience and partial doing it your own way.
Outline: In the chart From Freedom to Slavery we saw that Adam and Eve had locked the human family into Satan’s kingdom. In the Chart The Promised Seed we witnessed God’s breathe taking plan to liberate the human family and offer us the choice to re-enter God’s kingdom. In this chart we see the two human responses to God’s plan. From Abel we trace a remnant of people who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus to the very end. They follow God’s instructions by simple faith and trust. From Cain we trace another larger group who acknowledge God but want to serve him on their own terms. These two groups culminate in Revelation 13 and 14, God’s faithful giving the First angel’s message and point the world to the true gospel and the creator and those who follow the beast and His image.
