Genesis 3:1–6 KJV 1900
1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? 2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: 3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. 4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: 5 For God 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. 6 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.

THE STORY OF ADAM AND EVE IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN IS A VERY
FAMILLAR STORY. WHAT HAS OFTEN BEEN SAID OF GENESIS AS A
WHOLE IS PECULIARLY TRUE OF THE THIRD CHAPTER, PARTICULARLY
BECAUSE IT IS THE SEEDPLOT OF THE BIBLE.
IT’S CONSIDERED TO BE THE SEED PLOT OF THE BIBLE BECAUSE
ALL OF THE REST OF THE BIBLE KIND OF BRANCHES OFF OF GENESIS CHAPTER 3. AND I SAY THAT BECAUSE IN OTHER TO REALLY UNDERSTAND THE REST OF THE BIBLE AND EVEN TO UNDERSTAND WHAT’S GOING ON IN THE WORLD TODAY, WE MUST GO BACK TO GENESIS CHAPTER 3. BECAUSE GENESIS CHAPTER 3, I TELL YOU, IS THE “SEED PLOT” OF THE BIBLE.
GENESIS CHAPTER 3. BECAUSE GENESIS CHAPTER 3, I TELL YOU, IS THE “SEED PLOT” OF THE BIBLE.
NOW, GENESIS CHAPTER 3, MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS, IS SO
VITAL TO THE UNDERSTANDING OF THE REST OF THE BIBLE THAT IF
YOU WERE TO READ GENESIS CHAPTER 1 AND READ GENESIS CHAPTER
2, THEN OMIT GENESIS CHAPTER 3 AND READ GENESIS CHAPTER 4, YOU WOULD EASILY AND IMMEDIATELY CONCLUDE THAT YOU MUST HAVE MISSED SOMETHING. OH YES, MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS BECAUSE YOU SEE, IT WOULD BE KIND OF LIKE IF YOU WERE WATCHING A MYSTERY MOVIE AND RIGHT BEFORE IT GOT REAL GOOD, RIGHT BEFORE IT GOT REAL INTERESTING YOU GOT UP AND WENT INTO THE KITCHEN TO FIX YOURSELF A BAG OF MICROWAVE POPCORN.
BUT WHEN YOU RETURNED, LOW AND BEHOLD, EVERYTHING HAD GONE HAYWIRE. AND YOU CAN’T HELP BUT POSE THE QUESTION "WHAT HAPPENED WHILE I WAS GONE?" THAT'S THE WAY IT WOULD BE IF YOU WERE TO EXCLUDE GENESIS CHAPTER 3.
FOR IN GENESIS, MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS GOD IS REVEALED AS THE CREATOR GOD, THE COVENANT GOD, THE ETERNAL GOD, THE ALMIGHTY GOD, THE EVERLASTING GOD,THE MOST HIGHT GOD, AND THE POSSESSOR AND THE SUSTAINER OF BOTH HEAVEN AND EARTH.
WITHOUT THIS STORY, NOTHING THAT IS WOULD FALL INTO
PLACE.WITHOUT THE GENESIS STORY, WE WOULD HAVE NO
AUTHORITATIVE RECORD OF ANYTHING THAT IS. WE WOULD BE
WITHOUT THE KNOWLEDG OF TIME AND DATES.NO BEGINNING OF
RECORDS. WITHOUT THIS STORY, ALL THAT IS WOULD SEEM AS A
MEANINGLESS CONGLOMERATION OF MATTER WITHOUT PURPOSE.
WITHOUT THIS STROY, ALL OF THE EVENTS OF HISTROY WOULD BE
ONLY HAPHAZARD HAPPENINGS WITH NO PURPOSEFUL PURPOSE.
WITHOUT THIS STORY WE WOULD HAVE NO KNOWLEDGE OF A CREATOR
NOR WOULD WE BE CONSCIOUS OF OUR CREATUREHOOD. MAN WOULD
HAVE NO STARTING PLACE TO TRACE HIS OWN BEING.THE DARWIN
THEORY EVOLUTION WOULD BE THE AUTHORITY.AND WE WOULD BE
FORCED TO BELIEVE THAT WE ARE THE OFF SPRINGS OF THE LOWER
ANIMALS OR THE PRODUCTS OF CHANCE OR OF MAMMALS OF THE SEA.
WITHOUT THE GENESIS STORY, NOTHING THAT IS,IS WORTH ANY
CONSIDERATION. WITHOUT THIS STORY, MIND AND MATTER ARE IN
THE SAME CATEGORLY. WITHOUT THIS STORY, WE WOULD HAVE NO
GROUNDS FOR BELIEF IN ANYTHING; WITHOUT THE GENESIS STORY,
HUMAN HISTROY IS A MONSTROUS JOKE.SO MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS TO REFUTE THIS STORY WOULD MEAN DOING AWAY WITH ALL HUMAN REASONING AND FAITH IN ANYTHING.FOR YOU SEE MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS ALL ABSOLUTE TRUTH HAS ITS BEGINNING IN THE GENESIS STORY.
THE GENESIS STORY BEGINS WITH THE WORDS, IN THE BEGINNING
GOD CREATED THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH.YOU SEE NO MAN, NO
MATTER HOW LEARNED HE IS, CAN GO BEYOND THIS IN HIS SEARCH
FOR THE BEGINNING OF THE WORLD AND ALL THINGS CONTAINED
HEREIN. TO ATTEMPT TO GO BACK BEYOND THE BEGINNING IS SIMPLY
HUMAN SPECULATION AND VAIN BABBLING.ANY TIME A MAN ATTEMPTS
TO GO FURTHER BACK THAN THE BEGINNING, HE ENDS UP WITH A
CONFUSED MIND AND CONFUSES ALL THE MINDS THAT LISTEN TO HIM.
IT IS IN GENESIS THAT THE FOUNDATION OF OUR DOCTRINES ARE
LAID AND UPON WHICH OUR FAITH MUST REST. IT IS IN GENESIS
THAT MAN BECOMES KNOWLEDGEABLE OF A WORLD ABOUT HIM, AS WELL
AS OF WHO AND WHAT HE IS.THIS IS THE STARTING POINT OF
KNOWLEDGE. IN GENESIS CHAPTER 2, WE READ THAT MAN WAS
CREATED IN THE IMAGE AND LIKENESS OF GOD. , WE READ
THAT GOD MADE HIM A LITTLE LOWER THAN THE ANGELS AND CROWNED
HIM WITH GLORY AND HONOR.
HERE WE READ THAT GOD PLACE MAN IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN AND
GAVE HIM DOMINION OVER ALL THE FOWLS OF THE AIR AND THE
BEASTS OF THE FIELDS. HE GAVE HIM EVE AS HIS HELPMATE WITH
THE COMMAND TO DRESS THE GARDEN AND KEEP IT.SO ALL WAS GOOD
IN EDEN. ALL WAS PEACEFUL IN EDEN. IT WAS A GARDEN OF
DELIGHT, A GARDEN OF PLEASURE,AND A GRADEN OF PLENTY. I TELL
YOU MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS ALL WAS PEACEFUL IN EDEN.
. THERE WERE NO ILL WINDS THAT BLEW IN EDEN AND NO VIOLENT
STORMS AROSE IN EDEN.NO TORRENTIAL RAIN FELL IN EDEN. NO
SHOCKING EXPERIENCES TOOK PLACE IN EDEN, AND THERE WERE NO
UNSUPECTED HAPPENING IN EDEN.THERE WERE NO PERPLEXING
PROBLEMS FACING ADAM AND EVE. NO BURDENS REST ON THEIR
SHOULDERS AND NO SORROW PIERCED THEIR HEARTS.THERE WAS
NOTHING IN EDEN TO UPSET THEIR NERVES.AND SICKNESS WAS NOT
KNOWN TO THEM AND PAINS WERE NEVER FELT.
DEATH WAS UNKNOWN. THERE WERE NO FUNERALS . THERE WERE NO
CONDOLENCES TO BE SENT, NO OBITUARIES TO READ, AND NO
EULOGIES TO BE DELIVERED.THERE WERE NO HEARSE-WHEELS TO
ROLL, NO GRAVES TO DIG,AND THERE WERE NO BENEDICTIONS TO
PRONOUNCE. I TELL YOU ALL WAS PEACEFUL IN EDEN.
GOD'S DELIGHT WAS IN MAN AND MAN'S DELIGHT WAS IN GOD.
THEY WERE CONSTSNT COMPANIONS. EDEN WAS A GRADEN OF PERFECT PEACE.MAN'S HABITATION AND ABSOLUTE INNOCENCE WAS MAN'S STATE.ALL THAT ADAM KNEW WAS A PARADISE OF LOVELINESS, A
GARDEN OF BEAUTY, AND A HOME OF PEACE.
HOW BEAUTIFUL AND PEACEFUL IT WAS IN EDEN FROM THE FIRST
CHAPTER THROUGH CHAPTER 2. BUT IN CHAPTER 3, THERE IS A
SUDDEN CHANGE. SATEN APPEARED IN THE FROM OF A SNAKE. IN
OTHER WORDS THERE'S A SNAKE IN THE HOUSE
TELL THE STORY
AS I CLOSE THERE IS A SNAKE IN MANY MODERN-DAY HOMES.HAVE
YOU EVER WONDERED WHY SATAN ATTACKED THE FIRST HOME? WAS IT
NOT BECAUSE HE RECOGNIZED THE HOME AS HIS ENEMY? WAS IT NOT
BECAUSE HE KNEW THE HOME WOULD BE A BENEFACTOR OF MAN IN
PROVIDING PEACE,SECURITY AND STRENGHT? DID HE NOT RECOGNIZE
THE HOME AS A FORTRESS FOR TRUTH AND RIGHT AND THUS TRIED TO
INFILTRATE IT AT THE BEGINNING TO ROB IT OF ITS POWER? SATAN
KNEW MORE ABOUT THE VALUE OF THE HOME THEN THE SO CALLED
INTELLECTUALS OF OUR DAY. IF THE HOME HAD NOT BEEN IMPORTANT
SATAN WOULD NEVER HAVE BOTHERED WITH IT.
THE HIGH DIVORCE RATE, THE PLAGUE OF MARITAL INFIDELITY,
THE ABUSE OF CHILDREN AND SPOUSES, AND THE GENERAL SPIRIT OF
UNREST ARE EVIDENCE OF SATAN'S PRESENCE IN OUR HOMES TODAY.
WHEN SATAN FINISHED HIS WORK IN THE ORIGINAL HOME, HAPPINESS
HAD TURNED TO SORROW, TRUTH TO LYING, INNOCENCE TO SHAME AND
STABILITY TO INSTABILITY. AND MY BROYHERS AND SISTERS HE IS
DOING THE SAME THING TODAY. SATAN MUST BE RESISTED BY
FILLING OUR HOMES WITH THAT WHICH IS GOOD, PURE, AND HOLY.
THERE IS A SNAKE IN THE LIVES OF SOME CHURCH MEMBERS.
SATAN'S INFLUENCE IS EVIDENCED BY THEIR WORLDLY LIVING. THEY
LOVE THE WORLD AND WORLDLY THINGS. THEY BLEND IN WITH THE
WORLD, INSTEAD OF SHINNING AS LIGHTS THEREIN. THEIR LIGHT IS
UNDER THE BUSHEL OF WORLDLINESS. THEIR SPEECH, DRESS, AND
HABITS BETRAY THEM!
there is a snake in the house: contrary , gossiping and hateful,
sowing the seed of contrary confusion and division
the seed of bitterness and anger, the seed of i cant’s and they wont
I cast out the sankes in this house as God cast satan out of the garden
the serpent has been and is defeated and the hill of christ has been bruised has
put on humanity and taught us how to live, ...............
