Life in the Garden
Life with God is a prison with a fence – lie of the devil
Life in religion is a life of prison, behind the fence
Are you in the fence or the sin is in the fence?
Life in the garden is not a prison life but it does have fences (Genesis 2:8-17)
The word of God puts a fence over dangerous zones to protect us
Deceiver lied by saying that the fence is keeping good things from them
The purpose of the fence is not restriction but safety
Eve climbed over the fence of God’s word & her conscience
Humanity could never climb back to the Garden from that fence
Relationship with God; marriage; family; work is effected by that fence
Life behind the fence is life of being dominated instead of dominion
Covering is the way of escape
Clothing was the reason he was disqualified (Matthew 22:1-14)
Adam’s clothes were not good enough (Genesis 3:7-10)
If fig leaves were enough he wouldn’t be hiding and we wouldn’t need the cross
They were made of fig leaves – outward performance
Fig tree that had leaves but didn’t have fruit was cursed by Jesus
It’s much easier to please perfectionist mom then to try to please holy God
Our righteousness is like filthy rags
The story of shameful and stinking rags
God’s designers clothes (Genesis 3:21)
Cow’s skin makes nice leather shoes, and tiger’s fur makes warm coats
Many animals are not killed for meat but for clothing
You can’t wear the skin of the animal is the animal is alive
Jesus was skinned the cross so that you could wear His coat (2 Corinthians 5:21)
When you come God treats you like He would treat Jesus because of His coat
No body can be more righteous then Jesus
Prodigal son come home because the Father has the best robe
