Adam & Eve

God Banishes Them from the Garden of Eden

"And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew. And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the Lord."

Bible Study Article Covers :  Genesis 3:20-24

In the last article we'd learned that after Lucifer (Satan) had been cast from heaven, we find that Lucifer sets out to seek revenge against God. He does this by attacking the highlight from within God's entire creation, the human race. And although at this moment in time, there was only Adam and Eve, understand that the couple still represented the human race as an whole.

Be that as it may, we find that the Scriptures reveal that it would be at this point in time, Lucifer begins to set the trap for Adam and Eve. For we find Lucifer setting a trap that consists mainly of three lures, or temptations: "the lust of the flesh," "the lust of the eyes," and the "the pride of life."

Keep in mind, when Adam and Eve fell, and being that they represented the human race, when they fell, all of humanity had fallen right along with them. But in spite of all of this, the Sacred Record reveals that although Adam and Eve had allowed themselves, to be deceived by Lucifer (Satan) -- God didn't exercise His right, when it came to destroying them for their disobedience.

And even though God had passed judgment on all the parties that were involved: Adam and Eve, the serpent, Lucifer (Satan), and nature (yes... nature too). When it was all said and done, by God not destroying them, we get the first glimpse from within the Sacred Record, when it comes to the mercy, grace and forgiveness of God.

Nevertheless as we move forward, it's at this time, the Sacred Record reveals that Adam names his wife. For he gives her the name "Eve." Know that this name signifies life. Now I'd also like to point out, it would be at this time, Eve would be given the title: The Mother of all Living. Now it's at this point, God shows Adam and Eve more mercy. And He does this by providing for them, some coats of skin. God did this, in order to hide their nakedness: "Also for Adam and his wife the Lord God made tunics of skin, and clothed them." - Genesis 3:21

Man Loses Immortality

Although Banished - Things Are Still Doable

Now after God had given Adam and Eve a blessing of provision, which was done through the providing of the coats of skin. We find God making an announcement:

"And the Lord God said, 'Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life and eat, and live forever.' Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life." -- Genesis 3:22-24

Now again, the passage above, reveals that Adam and Eve were banished from the Garden of Eden. Now I would like to point out that although the couple were banished, personally I believe that the land that they ended up inhabiting, wasn't all that bad. But of course, nothing can compare to the Garden of Eden. However, know that I'm making this statement, based on the fact that Adam and Eve (with a lot of hard work) were still able to get some type of production and value, from the land that they were now dwelling.

Cain's Banishment

Notice how later on in the Sacred Record, we find that after Cain had killed Abel, he too was banished from the land, where his family (the household of Adam & Eve) had currently settled, after being banished from the Garden of Eden. Now understand, God had to banish Cain from that land, since it was (although no Garden of Eden) still productive. So God had to remove Cain from that place, so that He could move him to a land that was considered unproductive.

This was done in order to punish Cain for his crime, without destroying him completely: "And He said, 'What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood cries out to Me from the ground. So now you  are cursed from the earth, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand. When you till the ground, it shall no longer yield its strength to you. A fugitive and a vagabond you shall be on the earth.'" -- Genesis 4:10-12

In Spite of their Fate

Adam & Eve Stayed Humble

Now I also like to point out, the Sacred Record seems to reveal that, Adam and Eve had continued to obey God, in spite of their new unfavorable situation: "And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew. And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the Lord." -- Genesis 4:25-26

So in spite of their disobedience, we find God continuing to use Adam and Eve, when it came to His overall plan. A plan that dealt with God eventually, restoring humanity back to it's rightful place. Now this plan is somewhat demonstrated, by the fact that Adam and Eve had another child after Cain and Abel. And the name of this child was called Seth. Know that this name meant founder. Now notice how from within the passage above, how it states that after Seth was born, he too, had a child named Enos. And then it would be at this time, men began to call on the name of the Lord.
