Genesis 2: 23,25.
And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
The disobedience of Adam and Eve, was the cause of all human problems. They never knew they were naked until they broke the rule of their covering. The glory of God that shielded their nakedness from them and all other creation was withdrawn automatically, at time of the first bite of the apple.
As human, we probably wouldn’t have needed any of the material things that we have become so depended upon in the world today. For example, if human needed clothing, God would have created a physical one as of today and clades Adam and Eve in befitting one. Every need or want we are craving for, and slaving for today wouldn’t have been an issue if Adam and Eve had trusted the Lord and remained within the divinely set perimeters of knowledge.
Without the acquisition of the knowledge of good and evil, we would not have had evil ideas of hurting and destroying one another. God that created us knew that we are not capable to be a good custodian of the knowledge of good and evil. It was His transparency and righteousness that causes Him to share the information about tree of knowledge of good and evil with Adam and Eve. (Psalm 84:11)God will not withhold any good thing from his children. Up till then, Adam and Eve have been walking uprightly with God. There nakedness was exposed because of their iniquity, which lead to their down fall (Ezekiel 28:15). Satan knew that God will not condone iniquity, and concluded that the best way to destroy human relationships with God is to manipulate man into committing sin. It was a lesson he had learnt first hand, he knew if he could beguile Adam and Eve successfully, the human race would be damned. But God grace kicked in for man, and thwart Satan’s Plan.
Lessons for us today is to Trust God’s judgement in everything.
Romans 8:32-He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?
However, if He peradventure keeps certain things out of our reach, we should know, He has a good reason for doing so. If we venture out on our own to acquire such a thing, we should also be prepare for the consequences.
Many are struggling with issues they would not have had to deal with, simply, because they thought they were smarter than God. What happened to Adam and Eve then, is still happening today to many Christian. Check your yourself out .
Before Adam and Eve’s disobedience, they were never aware of their nakedness, and no-one ever noticed their nakedness either. Why ? That was because they were clothed with the glory of God. That glory of God that enveloped them, also carried with it certain element of honor, power and authority which compelled all other creations to reverence them, and submit to them-(Genesis 1:26).
Prior to their being beguiled, even serpent could not see their weakness, or their nakedness. But after their disloyalty to God: the glory, the honor, the power, the authority and the dominion grace departed from them. They lost their dominion specter, and became powerless, and shame sets in. From that moment on, they became a servant to those they supposed to be exercising dominion over. The head becomes the tail, This grieves God beyond measure. Hence: He initiated a superbly expensive rescue mission that would cost Him His only begotten son.
(Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ, Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father: To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.)-Gal.1:3-5.
Paul used these Scripture in his salutation to the Galatians to remind them how their Salvation was obtained.
You and I also, must know
should we deviate from the path of righteousness and failed to obey God.
