BEFORE ADAM AND EVE WERE EXPELLED FROM THE GARDEN
Emails: email@example.com ; firstname.lastname@example.org
I have read with keen interest some write ups from the scriptures and they are not actually the truth. One of such topics was “how Adam and Eve were naked when they were expelled from the Garden of Eden”. It was one of the write ups which was also supported with pictures showing Adam and his wife running away from the Garden. These pictures were drawn by those who taught us the word of God when we were yet little children. Now that we are grownups, and we can now read the Bible by ourselves, we have discovered some little faults from our fore fathers and teachers. I believe it might interest you to read and to know the truth from this blog site, because this site is word based though we may show some secular articles in it at different times.
AS WE GROW UP:
As we grow up and become born again by the mercies of the lord we begin to look into some of these topics and write-ups and see where they have some mistakes. And we will not just follow their mistakes no, but we will try our very best through the eternal Spirit to make some corrections. Even though they tried on their own to show us some of those pictures which made us to feel sorry for our first Parents Adam and Eve, that was their level of knowledge of the scriptures at that time. But now we have a duty to lead the next generation with the truth. Adam and his wife Eve were not naked when they were running out of the Garden. The Bible has this to say about their departure from the Garden that they were clothed.
On the day God came down to have fellowship with Adam and his wife, because he used to come down at the cool of the day according to the Bible and had fellowship with them, but on this day he discovered that they were no longer at their usual position. Then God called out on Adam saying “Adam, Adam where are you”? From his hideout among the trees he answered “I heard thy voice in the Garden, I was afraid, because I was naked and I hid myself” Gen. 3:10. Although he did not just answer God’s question, his answer immediately revealed to God that he had eaten the forbidden fruit. Then God quickly replied him “who told you that you were naked, have you eaten the fruit which I told you not to eat” Gen. 3:11. God knew immediately that he had eaten the fruit, because it was only that fruit in the Garden that could open their eyes. Instead of saying I’m sorry to God, he then returned the blame to God by saying “the woman you gave to me, she gave the fruit and I did eat”, as if what God did to him in giving him a wife was wrong. That was a wrong impression on God by our first Parent Adam. But God was and is still merciful.
Adam acted as a sharp guy before his maker but he never knew that God was sharper and super sharp than him. God does not take excuses from man, neither would he take blames from human beings. Ok Adam said the woman you gave me, she gave the fruit to eat and I did eat, that’s fine. God turned to the woman and said “what is this that thou has done”? She also was a sharp woman and she equally shifted her fault to the Serpent and said, “the Serpent beguiled me and I did eat”. One thing was obvious, God began at the Serpent first in punishing them by saying to the Serpent “because you have done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every Beast of the field. Upon thy belly shall thou go, and dust shall thou eat all the days of thy life”Gen.3:14. From this moment, the Serpent which was like a cattle was recreated immediately, and it started licking the dust as its food.
Then God turned to the woman and said “I will greatly multiply thy sorrow, and thy conception; in sorrow thou shall bring forth children, and thy desire shall be to thy husband and he shall rule over thee” Gen.3:16. Coming to the man from where he started he said “because thou has hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and has eaten of the tree of which I commanded thee saying, thou shall not eat of it; cursed is the ground for thy sake. In sorrow shall thou eat of it all the days of thy life. Thorns and also thistles shall it bring forth to thee, and thou shall eat the herb of the field. In the sweat of thy face shall thou eat bread till thou return unto the ground. For dust thou art and unto dust shall thou return” Gen. 3:17-19.
In verse 20, the Bible said that Adam called the name of his wife Eve, because she was the mother of all living”, i.e. mother of all human beings. So it was Adam who gave name to his wife not God. But in verse 21 something great happened, and it was the reason this post is written. God himself having heard about the complaint from Adam that he was naked did not leave them like that, no. He went forth and killed a Lamb and used the skin of that Lamb to make coat or Apron for them and clothed them before he expelled them from the Garden of Eden. That was where the Lamb of God was killed for the first time. Adam and his wife were part of God’s plan of Salvation for mankind. They enjoyed the salvation that was in Christ Jesus who is the Lamb of God. And that is why the reference said “the Lamb of God slain from the foundation of the world” Rev. 13:8b. I told you that this site is word based. Come here to search for that article that you are searching for. We promise that if you don’t see it here kindly use the email address above the page to indicate that you want it and we shall provide it for you. You can now see that God did not leave them naked before expelling them from the Garden. Our God is the all wise God, there is no way he could expel them like that, no. he clothed them before expelling them out from the Garden of Eden.
God could have left them in the Garden but for the tree of life which was also in the Garden. If by omission or commission they eat from the tree of life, they would live forever without dying again. But that would bring the word of God to naught, for he said “in the day that thou eatest of it, thou shall surely die” Gen. 2:17. So God drove them out of the Garden because of the tree of life Gen. 3:24, and placed the Cherubims there. And from that time till now, those cherubims had been there, and their name have been changed to Angels as at today.
