We have lost our connection to the Father because of the disobedient spirit that was implanted within us. Every man and woman who is born in the flesh is born with that sin of disobedience which we have inherited from Adam and Eve. (Romans 5:12) This is what separates us from the Almighty Father. And this is why we need salvation.
In order for us to go back to that relationship with the Almighty Father, we have to surrender that which has separated us from Him, and that is our sin, which is the serpent seed, the spirit of disobedience camouflaging itself as our human will. This can only be accomplished by repentance.
Luke 13:3 says, “Unless ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.”
2 Peter 3:9 tells us: “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is long suffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.”
