Lets Read The Bible: Genesis Chapter Three In Genesis chapter three, we learn of the first appearance of the

Devil whom took the form of a serpent, whom had left his first estate and trespassed into the Garden of Eden where he did not belon and with the Devil!s appearance betra"al followed# The Devil is craft" like that of a serpent seekin to deceive and destro" all that G$D had created, beca%se the Devil &L%cifer' desires to be worshiped like the (i hest &G$D'# The serpent successfully tempts Eve to eat from the Tree of Conscience through deception he deceives Eve. The serpent convinces Eve that she would not die if she ate from the Tree of Conscience and after Eve ate the fruit thereof and did not drop dead then Eve tempted her husband Adam to take the fruit and eat thereof and Adam did as his wife asked. Now, the Devil accomplished what he set out to accomplish in the world that at that time consisted of Adam !an" and Eve #oman". $e the Devil caused !an to fall away from %&D and into 'in and Death. (ecause of Adam)s disobedience by eating from the Tree of Conscience, which %&D had forbidden Adam and Eve to eat from, and because Adam !an" disobeyed the #ill of %&D, 'in entered into the !an. Although, Adam and Eve did not drop dead physically after eating from the forbidden tree, they did die spiritually and were now separated from %&D)' #ill. A physical death would come later, but a physical death did come upon them both. As result for Adam)s disobedience 'in", %&D cursed the ground making life harder for !an)s own sake. 'ince Adam chose to e*ercise his free will to do that very thing that %&D forbade Adam not to do+ %&D who is ,ust and -ighteous had no choice but to allow Adam !an" to e*perience what life will be like living !an)s own way, since %&D did not want to put to death the !an that %&D created, but had a plan to save !ankind to the %lory of %&D. &nce sin entered into !an resulted in a fallen spiritually dead" nature that is then passed down to every man and woman born into the world that are from the seed of the first Adam. Thus every man and woman born into the world are sinners evil", because all are born spiritually dead and not by nature seeking to do the will of %&D. Every man and woman seeks his or her own way in life, to do their own thing, to make their own laws and to lord over others the way that the believe is right and fair. Romans ):*) ./or all have sinned, and come short of the glory of %od+. !an by his own fallen nature is born spiritually dead blind" and he sees himself as a good person even though his heart is evil continuously. 0usting after his own desires and not that of %&D)' desire for him man". No man that who sins is good by nature, but evil is in his thoughts from the day he was born.

Romans ):+,-*, .12 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one3 11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after %od. 14 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable+ there is none that doeth good, no, not one. 15 Their throat is an open sepulchre+ with their tongues they have used deceit+ the poison of asps is under their lips3 16 #hose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness3 17 Their feet are swift to shed blood3 18 Destruction and misery are in their ways3 19 And the way of peace have they not known3 1: There is no fear of %od before their eyes. 1; Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law3 that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before %od. 42 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be <ustified in his sight3 for by the law is the knowledge of sin.. There is hope for sinners to be forgiven and to be saved from death and hell. To go from spiritually dead blind" to spiritually alive sight restored". /rom being eternally separated from %&D to being eternally <oined to %&D. /rom knowing not the truth the #ay" to knowing and walking in the #ay Truth". /rom wondering and stumbling in the Darkness to walking in peace in the 0ight. There is hope as long as there is still breath in the lungs and life in the body. Romans ):*+-*. .41 (ut now the righteousness of %od without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets+ 44 Even the righteousness of %od which is by faith of ,esus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe3 for there is no difference3 45 /or all have sinned, and come short of the glory of %od+

46 (eing <ustified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ ,esus3 47 #hom %od hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of %od+ 48 To declare, = say, at this time his righteousness3 that he might be <ust, and the <ustifier of him which believeth in ,esus. 49 #here is boasting then> =t is e*cluded. (y what law> of works> Nay3 but by the law of faith. 4: Therefore we conclude that a man is <ustified by faith without the deeds of the law.. As we learn from %enesis chapter three, that sin first entered into the world by the deeds of one man Adam"+ %&D sent $is only begotten 'on ,esus Christ second Adam" to be the propitiation last sacrifice" to pay for our sins on the cross by the shedding of $is precious blood, so for all who will believe in ,esus Christ alone as their saviour who had laid $is own life down for them, was buried and rose from the dead back to life ??? all who will believe in ,esus Christ and confess they are a sinner and need ,esus Christ to save them then they will be saved. Turning to %&D through ,esus Christ is reflective of them turning away from sin in their heart and turning to the only one that can save them ??? the only one who $imself is without sin, the 0ord ,esus Christ, the only begotten 'on of %&D. #ith all of this being said, .0et)s -ead The (ible3 %enesis Chapter Three.3 Genesis ) 1 .Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the 0ord %od had made. And he said unto the woman, @ea, hath %od said, @e shall not eat of every tree of the garden> 4 And the woman said unto the serpent, #e may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden3 5 (ut of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, %od hath said, @e shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. 6 And the serpent said unto the woman, @e shall not surely die3 7 /or %od doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. 8 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her+ and he did eat.

9 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked+ and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons. : And they heard the voice of the 0ord %od walking in the garden in the cool of the day3 and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the 0ord %od amongst the trees of the garden. ; And the 0ord %od called unto Adam, and said unto him, #here art thou> 12 And he said, = heard thy voice in the garden, and = was afraid, because = was naked+ and = hid myself. 11 And he said, #ho told thee that thou wast naked> $ast thou eaten of the tree, whereof = commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat> 14 And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and = did eat. 15 And the 0ord %od said unto the woman, #hat is this that thou hast done> And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and = did eat. 16 And the 0ord %od said unto the serpent, (ecause thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field+ upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life3 17 And = will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed+ it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. 18 Anto the woman he said, = will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception+ in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children+ and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee. 19 And unto Adam he said, (ecause thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which = commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it3 cursed is the ground for thy sake+ in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life+ 1: Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee+ and thou shalt eat the herb of the field+ 1; =n the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground+ for out of it wast thou taken3 for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return. 42 And Adam called his wife)s name Eve+ because she was the mother of all living. 41 Anto Adam also and to his wife did the 0ord %od make coats of skins, and clothed them.

44 And the 0ord %od said, (ehold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil3 and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever3 45 Therefore the 0ord %od sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. 46 'o 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.. &/ote: 0ll 1cript%res %sed in this Bible readin comes from The 2in 3ames 4ersion of The (ol" Bible and is free to %se non-commerciall" or commerciall" as its stat%s is 5%blic Domain#'
