Where Was Adam?
Where was Adam?
Using Mark Johnson notes.
Genesis 2:8-9 (KJV)
-Notice 3 kinds of trees:
Fruit trees for food.
Genesis 2:15 (KJV)
-He was created outside the Garden.
-Now he is put into the Garden.
-AND gives him a job (vocation).
God’s Command to Adam
Genesis 2:16-17 (KJV)
Notice that Eve doesn’t even exist yet.
-Adam is told that he could eat of ALL the trees but one.
-There would be NO DEATH unless he ate of that 1 tree.
Genesis 2:21-25 (KJV)
-Naked but not ashamed.
-Leave father and mother.
-Become one flesh.
The 1st Deception!
Genesis 3:1-5 (KJV)
-The snake was just one of many “beasts of the field.”
-Satan went into the snake (manifested as a snake).
--Was the snake this subtil on it’s own?
--Snakes don’t speak as far as we know, unless…?
So Satan speaks to Eve in v.1
Genesis 3:1 (NKJV)
Genesis 3:1 (TLB)
Did you ever notice anything unusual in verse 3?
-There is an UNTRUTH in the verse!
-God never said anything about touching it.
Let’s go back a bit.
-God only told Adam about the trees.
-Adam must have told Even about the trees.
--Somehow the communication got twisted.
---Who could have caused that!
-Genesis 3:4-5 (TLB)
Now we come to a very key point.
Genesis 3:6 (KJV)
--Did you catch the significance here?
Where was Adam when Eve was being deceived?
-Was he fishing?
-In the garage with his toys?
-Maybe he was over on the other side of the Garden!
NO, he was WITH HER!
-Let’s see, was he not paying attention?
-Doesn’t he even see the problem?
-IS HE AFRAID…to correct her?
-He is certainly not protecting her!
Have you ever heard it said, “my husband just doesn’t get it!”
-Obviously, Adam doesn’t get it.
-He is guilty of being “passive”, rather than taking his “authority.”
So I present to you the problem:
-Too many men are tormented by a “spirit of passivity.”
-Calling it a spirit is less frightening to most men.
--The raw truth is that it is a demonic spirit.
--It has intelligence, and an order to destroy you.
--Destroying your marriage is just part of the deal.
-It will get the rest of you if it can.
So, what to do about the problem.
