God As The Archer by Pastor Melissa Scott

We have to learn about this. This hamartia was not what Adam did, what they call his transgression, but by his act, he introduced this, which was never in the world before: hamartia. Missing the mark was never there before because God, picture God as the archer. Pshew. He hits the mark all the time. It wasn’t there before so as a byproduct of Adam’s transgression, this enters in. And I know some of you are saying, “Well, tell me more.” You’re going to have to hang around for me to tell you more. I just want to kind of touch on this and make a couple of points and then we’ll move on.

According to Pastor Melissa Scott thatPaul is brilliant because he knows that when we’re in a state, a darkened mind state, the light could shine on you, which many times it did. It shone on me many times, but it wasn’t the time, as I used the analogy of Moses. It wasn’t yet the time and the scripture says, “I due time” many times. “In due time” God illuminates that which was darkened. Here he’s saying, “This is the condition we were all in.” “Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air.” Let me read through this first, “the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: among whom also we all” – not you guys over there in the corner – “we all had our” – the King James reads, “conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
