UNDERSTANDING GENESIS–The Lord God sent him forth from the garden…

I read a meme recently that made the claim that it was the gospel in a nutshell. It said

God made it-

Adam broke it-

Jesus fixed it.

If you believe this is the Genesis account in a nutshell then you do not know the first thing about the true and living God. His Son Jesus. Or what the atonement was for.

In Rom.5:12,13 Paul tells us that when Adam sinned it brought sin into the world. Not all sin. Just his. And Paul also said this sin was not imputed to him or anyone else. This means that God did not hold this sin against Adam. So that he, nor anyone else for that matter, was not punished for it.

So how could Adam be accused of breaking anything? And how can the rest of mankind be punished for that sin? What really happened is

Oh, but you ask wasn't death punishment for Adam's sin? God says it was not. Will you believe Him? Or will you believe the teachings of the Augustinian cult?

The Bible shows that it was a necessary step for man to be able to come to a true and saving faith in Jesus. Because without man coming to realize his own mortality, which the Bible says he did after he could no longer eat from the tree of life, he would never have realized his need for Jesus. His need for a personal and loving relationship with his Creator.

A personal relationship with God that only a spiritual being can have. Because as Paul tells us in 1Cor.2:14 the natural man can not perceive the things of the spirit. Neither can he know them. And in John4:24 Jesus said that God is a Spirit. And those who worship God must worship Him in spirit and in truth.

The main difference between the Augustinian cults- ie Roman Catholics, protestants, evangelicals, mormons, jw's, etc..., and Biblical truth, is that these cults believe man was created a spiritual being. And that the real reason man needs Jesus is because he lost his connection with God because he is immoral. So... works.

While the Bible teaches that the reason mankind needs Jesus is that man was purposely created without a spirit. And Jesus and Paul said flesh and blood can not inherit the kingdom of God. But, when he comes to faith in Jesus a spirit is birthed in him so that now he is related to, and in relationship with, God by birth. So... grace through faith without works.

Praise God for His wonderous grace!! Grace that is why in John1:12,13 we see that "as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God."

This all relates to why God sent Adam from the garden. Because Adam was made a natural being. He had no spirit when God made him. He was flesh and blood. He was mortal. He was natural. And 1Cor.15:45-48 tells us that our flesh is just as Adam's was when he was made.

So if you have believed that you need Jesus because you have been bad. Or because you have inherited someone else's badness. Then this shows you that this is absolutely not the case. And that it is only the fact that we are all mortal when we are born that creates our need for Jesus.

But, Adam did not know he was mortal until after he ate the fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

Until then he had access to and ate from the tree of life. As God instructed him to eat from every tree that was in the garden except for the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. This is why he did not begin to die until after he was sent from the garden on the very same day he ate it. And this is why God sent Adam from the garden.

We see God's statement saying why He sent Adam from the garden in Gen.3:22-24. He said it was because "the man has 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 for ever: 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."

The fact that the Augustinian cults I mentioned earlier all read this and conclude that man was always immortal is stunning.

How can an immortal being die? The fact that one can die is proof he was never immortal.

So this mortal being God called Adam, after being sent from the garden, came to realize he was mortal. And in Gen.4 we see that this is when men began to call upon the name of the Lord. They began to seek after God.

Why? Because after seeing death for the first time in Abel he realized his own mortality. Think of it. When Cain killed Abel no one had ever seen death. Until then they still did not know what death was.

But, after seeing death and Seth was born as a replacement for Abel. We are told that men began to call upon the name of the Lord. And so it has been ever since. Men realizing their mortality call upon the Lord to save them from it.

And the beauty of God's love for mankind is that when men call upon the Lord to be saved, He saves them. This is what a judge does. A judge delivers people from the hands of the oppressor. And the oppressor is satan. And God being the ultimate judge delivers all who will call upon the name of the Lord Jesus and are delivered from mortality to immortality.

This is what Paul teaches in 1Cor.15. He says, "So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:

It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:

It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.

And Paul goes on speaking of this mystery saying, "51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,

In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.

But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ."

All this was made possible only because Adam was sent from the garden. If he had remained there none of this would have been possible. Because he would have remained only flesh and blood. A mortal man without a spirit to relate to God with while he continued to eat from the tree of life to live forever.

Never understanding his need for God because he had the facade of immortality produced by eating from the tree of life.

Never knowing his need for God that could produce for him a personal loving relationship with his Creator that only spiritual beings can have with the Creator.

This is why Peter shows us in 1Peter1 that it was God's will that Adam eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil by saying Jesus, "was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you,

Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.

Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:

Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away:

But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you."

Man would never have known that all flesh is as grass and withers away if Adam had not eaten from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. He would never have known his need for the word of the Lord that endures forever by which he is born again of incorruptible seed.

So this is why God sent man from the garden. Not as punishment. But, so that when men realized their mortality they would begin to call upon the name of the Lord. To be delivered, saved, from their mortality to immortality. From natural life to spiritual life. From temporal life to eternal life.

And God is faithful. He loves us all so much that He answers everyone who will call upon the name of the Lord Jesus for deliverance. And if you have realized your mortality, and want His gift of immortality, call upon the name of Jesus today. Will you call upon Him to deliver you from your mortality to His immortality? Praying,

If you will then you will have eternal life. If you will then you will become a child of God and heir to His kingdom. If you will then you will be made a spiritual being and will have a personal and loving relationship with our Creator.

If you will... then I will see you there or in the air!
