[]Preface

So many authors could write many kinds of literatures regarding Christian philosophy. But, the Holy Bible, being two parts i.e., the Old Testament and the New Treatment, appears easy to hold in our hands, contains the hidden secrets in the divine plan which are beyond the limits of the earth and sky. In reality, the kind of divine secrets which were revealed in the Holy Bible are not written in any other book or literature.

Dear readers! Moses, who was unaware of God, had no divine knowledge, and became the author of first five books in the Holy Bible. Merely God’s motive, will, knowledge, provocation, selection, surrounding, etc., were performed on behalf of Moses by the Lord. The state of the waters, the Spirit of God hovering over the face of the deep, the light which was delivered by the word of the Spirit of God, the creatures, creation and the deeds of the creation, were formed through this light and word; thereafter, he could write about the formation of the man, and the formation of the woman, the tree of Life in the Garden of Eden, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, the cunning serpent, etc. Thereafter, he could write the deceit of the serpent on the woman, the entry of the first couple into the sin, the enmity among the five elements, the pollution of atmosphere, diversity in the creation and the first couple were driven out by God. Likewise, he could write about the generation who came from first couple, the sin that spread along with the generation, and the result which was a great massacre through the floods by the Lord God. The Ark, which was constructed according to the divine plan through Noah, gave the salvation for the family of Noah through this Ark.

Dear readers! All these happened some thousands of years ago before the birth of Moses. These incidents were revealed to Moses by the Lord and made him to write during those illiterate days, in which there were no pen, paper, pencil and a type writer. The books, which were written in that situation, were first five books in the Holy Bible.

Dear readers! In those days, there were no preachers for Moses to teach him. The Lord God was the one, who trained Moses in literacy, divine knowledge, scripture, etc. God trained Moses, and revealed him the secrets in the construction of first five books in those days directly. Amongst them was the history of the Garden of Eden. This book is written by relying upon the secrets in the Garden of Eden.

[] The beginning

 

 

How was the God in the past? What existed at first? Was it the tree or the seed? Was the life first or the living being first? Was the creator first or the creation first? The reply we get is – If the tree isn’t there, we do not get the seed, if the life isn’t there, the living beings don’t possess mobility and if the creator isn’t there, the creation doesn’t exist.

 

Revelation 1:8” I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord Jesus Christ. In saying ‘Alpha (the first)’, he is the first among the creation of the heaven, the earth, the space, the planetary zones, the galaxies, the constellations, the stars, the celestial aurora, the oceans, the fire, the wind, etc., such creations. So, the first is the creator God. He is the first, the Primeval Supreme God. As he is the Prime Supreme God, He had created the whole creatures on this earth including the human being. From this, we realize that the God is the first the Prime. The creator God is the first one. But, let us learn how the Lord Christ becomes the first.

 

Among the Holy Scriptures, in the first ever is, Genesis 1:1 “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” It is written so. From this, we understand that the God had existed even before the creation. The very same God had created the earth and the sky and had given a shape and form to this whole creation. Genesis 1:2” Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.” From this, we realize that the creator had existed well before the creation. Hitherto, the verse, “Darkness was over the face of the waters.” This verse emancipates the natural state of the creation and the prior state of the creation. From this, we understand that the creation did not have a proper form. “The Spirit of the God had fluttered on the surface of the that, before the creation, the creator God’s Spirit fluttered on the surface of water which means the creator God’s Spirit itself also was just like the creation of that period, it was without form and to the eyes of that world it was visible as void. From this verse, it is clear that the Lord Almighty, the creator had a strong determination to give shape and form to this whole creation and the creatures as his Spirit hovered on the dark surface of the deep waters.

 

There are three strong reasons why the creator had a strong commitment to create this creation and the human beings, all the creatures and every believer must learn the three reasons in this.

 

The first reason: An angel named Lucifer who was the first born of God, due to his narcissistic vanity, revolted against the Father and was cursed and thrown out of the Heaven along with his companions and was fluttering on the dark waters without any form as said in the Genesis 1:2, then the Lord took pity on them, He too hovered on the surface of that unfathomable waters, and lifted up the hidden earth inside that waters and the father made to spread his son’s angelic luminaries, dried it, decorated this complete earth with whole flora and fauna, multitude of birds communities, rivers and streams, mountains and ravines, planetary alliances and stellar constellations etc., Finally, the Father, the Lord bestowed this earth to those angel’s attendants to wander as inheritance. Luke 4:6 “And he said to him, “I will give you all their authority and splendor; It has been given to me, and I can give it to anyone I want to.” The governments give food, bedding and accommodation, along with medical services, enough suitable places to wander about and also find out their welfare and take care of the inmates in Jail. In this same way, for Lucifer and his angels’ attendants, this whole earth was created to wander for their punishment.

 

The second reason: The Spirit of life which was a part of the Supreme Spirit, the God himself and which resided in him and was savoring the colossal abode had an ambition to rejoice by being filled on the entire earth which is created by God in the visible form and savor the pleasure by wandering on this creation. And for this purpose, this Spirit of life had made an appeal to the Supreme Spirit to let it go from the Heaven on to the earth on a visit to explore the earth and let him wander in the visual form. 1Peter 2:11, Hebrew 11:13-16 According to the request of the Lord Jehovah, the Lord God had created the Human body, breathed the Spirit of Life into it.

 

The third reason is the staunch aspiration of the Supreme Spirit himself. That is, He was not content with the nursing of the angels and their attributions and eulogiums. He had a strong aspiration that he should create another world in squarely with the invisible Heaven with the entire similar amenities and comforts in the visual forms, there a staunch aspiration arose in the Lord God to savour the attributions and eulogiums of his associates in his Spirit.

Due to these three reasons, the Father Lord Almighty had created this world. So, The Primordial Lord God had created this first creation, the first ever deed he had performed was the one mentioned in Genesis 1:3. “And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.” Then the Lord God, who is the Holy Spirit, had spelt one word first of all. When he had said, “Let there be light: and there was light.” This word existed as an emblem of the Lord Jesus Christ. We learn that this word existed with the God in the beginning, and that was spoken by the God who was the Holy Spirit. It is written that, according to word, immediately after this word had created the entire creation, the Lord God had scrutinized for everything to be in perfect condition and refined as dreamed by the God. While creating the Universe, he must have viewed well and done, mustn’t he? Again, why is it specially mentioned as seen? Here, the God in the Spirit form spelt one word. This word of God the Lord Jesus Christ had created the whole world completely ecstatically beautiful. Later, the God who was the Spirit saw this and said, “That is good”.

Prior to these words were first ever spoken by God, nothing was created in this creation. That was why, it is written, John 1:1-5 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. ^[* ]^Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. ^[ ]^In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. ^[ *]^The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” This word was the first thing that emitted from God in the form of light and shone brightly in the darkness and created the whole universe. In this way, the Lord Jesus Christ was the first one and had created the whole universe.

[] State of Satan before this creation

Dear readers! We already know, even then, there is a need to know once again about him in this book, because the names, i.e., the Lord God, the tree of Life, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, Adam, Eve, serpent, Satan, etc., will come frequently. But, there is no complete previous history of the Satan in the Garden of Eden. But, we can read the deeds of the Satan as well as the deeds through the Satan in the history of the Garden of Eden from this book. But, if we know real history of the Satan ahead of the original topics, it will be easy to grasp the topics in this book to the maximum extent.

Dear readers! We already know that there is a Heaven. In this, the Satan also known as morning star and Lucifer was the first dynasty in the proximity of Lord and made the sweet melodious music for the Lord. We can notice that Satan was seeing the Lord face to face as he made the sweet melodious music to the Lord, but, we as humans cannot see the glorified light of God with our eyes. Even Seraphim, the great angels in the proximity of the Lord also are not in a position to see the light of the Lord. We can read in the Holy Bible that they covered their eyes with their wings. “In the year that king Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple. Above it stood seraphim; each one had six wings: with two he covered his face, with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew” …Isaiah 6: 1-2. From this, even these Seraphim, who stood above, in the proximity of the Lord, could not see the light of the Lord; they covered their eyes with their wings. But, it is not written that the Satan closed his eyes whenever he plays music. Likewise, it is also not written in the book of Job that the Satan covered his eyes when he used to meet the Lord. Job 1: 6-12 and Job 2: 1-3; the reason for this is the privilege, which is given to the Satan by the Lord. This may be astonishing to us. But, it is true.

Dear readers! What is the inner meaning of the morning star, the Lucifer, who had such great privilege, was changed as the Satan? Let us know about this clearly. Isaiah wrote about the thought of the morning star the Lucifer in Isaiah 14:14 “I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High”. The reason to change this morning star, the Lucifer to Satan is this thought only. That means, he himself thought that he is equal to the Most High. After, he thought and after he changed into Satan, as in “How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, you who weakened the nations! Isaiah 14:12. Like this, the Satan was fallen down from the heavens. If we think that where this Satan was fallen down, we know that he fell down to the sheol i.e., the bottomless pit. “Yet you shall be brought down to sheol, to the lowest depths of the Pit” …. Isaiah 14:15,

Dear readers! The Lord God did not keep the Satan idle after he was thrown out of Heaven. The Lord God created a work even to the Satan also. And he gave the authority of temptation to the Satan. We can read from Job 1st chapter to the end of 2nd chapter. “So the Lord said to Satan, ‘Behold, all that he has is in your power; only do not lay a hand on his person’” …. Job 1:12. In this way, the Lord God gave authority over Job to the Satan. And also, “So the Lord said to Satan, ‘Behold, he is in your hand’” …Job 2:6, “Calling a bird of prey from the east, the man who executes My counsel, from a far country” …… Isaiah 46:11.

We must grasp the truth that the Satan, who was described in the book of Isaiah as the bird of prey, was an angel, who fulfills the deeds of the Lord God. The creation of the Garden of Eden and its history is one among the deeds of God. Likewise, everything in the Garden of Eden was created by the deeds of the Lord God. Only one, Satan was not created in the history of Eden. From this, we know that the Satan was formed well before the creation of Garden Eden.

We know through Isaiah 46:11 that each and every deed of Satan must be according to the determination of God. “Calling a bird of prey from the east, the man who executes My counsel, from a far country” …. Isaiah 46:11. From this, we must grasp that the Satan does not do any deed without counsel of the Lord God. This spirit of Satan is appointed to tempt us by the Lord God. “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world”…. John 16:33. “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world” ….1 John 5:4-5

God wants us to get victory over the Satan, his deeds, world and its deeds. Whoever overcomes the Satan, his deeds, world and its deeds, has the chance to enter in the heaven. So, Satan, who was appointed for us, is an obstacle only. So, the Lord God practically uses the Satan for temptation of humans starting from Adam. Even, the Satan tempted His Son, our Savior, and the Lord Jesus Christ three times.

Dear readers! Here, there is no need to know the complete deeds of Satan. But, let us understand the Satan’s deeds in the history of Eden through this book. And also let us know the plight of Adam and Eve, and how the Lord God existed in the Garden of Eden step by step from next chapters.

[] The first man

“And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being”…. Genesis 2:7.

Dear readers! The Lord God, who being the Spirit thought to create the man. Likewise, we can also read in the Holy Bible that the Lord God created the man. “Then God said, ‘Let Us make man in Our image according to Our likeness’”. “So God created man in His Own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them” …. Genesis 1: 26-28,

Dear readers! Let us know the most prominent physical and spiritual values of man’s life in biblical way. The mode of creation of the vast universe by the Lord God is different; the construction of creation is again different; the creation of the living creatures is different, how the earth’s natural set up is also different, the mode of formation of man is different; all these are inter-related with one another. Every creature in this creation is made by His word. That means this creation happened according to the word, motive, will, decision and plan of the Lord. That means the Lord God favored life to the earth through His word. Along with the trees, beasts, birds, and cattle, the earth is moving through its life. For this, especially the science Geography is formed in these days. The scientists have discovered that the earth moves around the sun. So, the earth has its movement. Because of the earth’s movement, the morning, afternoon, evening, and night are forming. The earth gained energy and produced the trees, grass, fruits, crops etc., according to the word of the Lord. So, the earth produced the earthly fruits through its life, which was favored by the Lord. In this way, the earth was appointed for the needs of man by the Lord and became the cause for three types of patrons.

They are,

1. The food for man’s need

2. The water for the existence of life

3. Air, the most essential need for the body of man.

In this way, the water, food and air are most prominent for the life of man. These three are favored to man on the earth by the Lord God. Likewise, the Lord God expected physical and spiritual fruits from man, who was formed through the breath of life by His own hand. Let us know about this through the Scripture. The fruits, which the earth ought to give to man, is three i.e., air, water, and food. Likewise, man, who is fed fruits by the earth and the Lord, must yield nine fruits. They are spiritually six and physically three.

Physically three are Faithfulness, Love and Hope.

Spiritually six are Virtue, Devotion, Peace, Kindness, Meekness and self-control.

Man, who is living by grace of God must be grateful to the Lord. But, if he remains ungrateful, he will be counted as a menial compared to all creatures.

Dear readers! Let us come to know the most prominent aspect in the life of a man, who was formed from the dust.

1. Making man’s body from dust

2.The Lord God breathed the breath of life into his nostrils, gave a name to the man as the living being and consecrated him in this vast universe.

Dear readers! Let us know the Lord’s thought about the man before his formation.

“Then God said, ‘Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness’” …. Genesis 1:26.

The inner meaning, which we ought to be known in this, is the image of divinity is not a single one, but multifold. Here, by saying, “Our image and Our likeness”, we must grasp that this sentence is not a single one, but multifold. The word, “Our”, is not singular, but it is plural. So, here we must grasp that there were some more persons, in addition to the Spirit of the Lord. Before the construction of the earth, God, being the Spirit, said,

“Let there be light”; and there was light……Genesis 1:3

This is the first deed of the Lord. The Lord God divided the light from the darkness. Here, we must grasp that this light is the Lord Jesus Christ.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it” ……John 1: 1-5,

From this, the Lord Jesus Christ performed His deeds as the light before the formation of this creation. In this way, when the Lord, being the spirit, mingled with the Lord Jesus Christ, the Light, created everything in the creation. We can read in the Holy Bible that the Holy Spirit was satisfied and made it to appear as good to the Lord. In this way, the Lord was in trinity. So, the Lord God said, “Our”, instead of “My”.

Dear readers! There is a need for us to know about His image and His likeness. The image and likeness of the Lord is the virtue and purity.

“Pensive peace with all men, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord.” …. Hebrews 12:14.

From this, we must grasp that the holiness is based on virtue and purity. So, without virtue and purity, no one will see the Lord. Not only that, we can read in the Holy Bible that the Lord selected each and every one basing on the virtue and purity only.

For ex:-Genesis 6:9, Noah was a just man, perfect in his generation.” So, the Lord God selected Noah according to his virtue and purity and made him to make the Ark. Likewise, Lot, Abraham, Job, etc. In this way, we have the fortune to be selected by the Lord through the virtue and to see the Lord through the purity.

Dear readers! Because Adam was formed of virtue and purity as the image and likeness of the Lord, he could see the Lord directly and talk to him. And also, He could christen all the creation when the Lord was near to him. We already know through Hebrews 12:14 that the virtue and purity, as the image and likeness of the Lord, was in Adam, so he could see the Lord. Thus, Adam saw the Lord and talked to the Lord. Here, we must grasp from the Scripture that the Lord God formed Adam with His likeness and His image. So, even though the body of Adam was formed of the dust, we must grasp that the base for the formation of Adam is the virtue and purity as His image and His likeness.

[] Is Adam made of dust taken from garden of Eden?

“And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man, became a living being.” …. Genesis 2:7.

Dear readers! It is clearly said in our original sentence that the construction of the body of Adam was formed from the dust of the ground. But, the Garden of Eden was also constructed on the earth. That means the Garden of Eden was also on the ground. Here, we must grasp that the Lord God planted the Garden eastward on the earth in Eden. So, the construction of the body of Adam was formed from the dust of the ground. Even then, which dust was used to construct the body of Adam by the Lord God? Was it from the Garden of Eden or the earth? Because,

“And out of the ground the Lord God made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. The tree of life was also in the midst of the garden and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil” …. Genesis 2:9.

Here it is said that every tree in the Garden of Eden was formed out of the ground.

“The Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there He put the man whom He had formed” …. Genesis 2:8.

Suppose, if Adam was formed in the Garden of Eden by the Lord then Adam was already in the Garden of Eden. So, there was no need to the Lord to put Adam in the Garden of Eden specially. According to the verse, the construction of the body of Adam was made outside the Garden of Eden. So, the Lord God formed the body of man from the dust which is taken from outside the Garden.

Another proof is, “For dust you are, and to dust you shall return” …. Genesis 3:19. The Lord God already knows that the man is weak. But, the Lord God gave entry to Adam in His Garden and loved him much. So, God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the Garden you may freely eat, but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die” …. Genesis 2: 16-17.

The Lord God loved Adam so much and told him about the secret of the fruit amongst the divine secrets to Adam for he wanted him to live. But, Adam could not retain the love of the Lord God for long and ate the fruit which was forbidden by the Lord. He yielded to the death by the curse of the Lord. If the Lord God buried the body of Adam in the Garden of Eden, it will be polluted. So, the Lord God, who knew of this before creating Adam, did so by taking the dust outside the garden on the earth. So, the Lord God drove out the cursed Adam from the holy Garden. From this, we must grasp that the Garden of Eden is not a birth place of Adam. It is confirmed that Adam was not formed from the dust of the Garden of Eden otherwise Adam would have fought with the Lord God days together like Jacob. Because the Lord God formed the body of Adam outside the Garden of Eden, Adam had no right in the entry of the Garden of Eden. So, he could not argue with the Lord.

Dear readers! From this, we know clearly through the Scripture that the construction of the body of Adam was formed outside the Garden of Eden on the base of the Lord’s image and likeness the virtue and purity. But, here we must know that his spirit is the lamp for his body, which was formed from the dust of the ground.

[] The garden of Eden and its construction

As in Genesis 2:8-14, the Garden of Eden was planted eastward in Eden on the earth by the Lord God. And the Lord God made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food out of the ground. Along with them, the Lord God planted the tree of life amidst the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. The specialty of the Garden of Eden is the tree of life, which resembles to the Lord Christ; He was in the Garden along with every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. Even though the Garden of Eden was planted eastward, we have the need to know the exact place of the Garden. It is very hard to say about this matter, because it is not written anywhere in the Holy Bible that the Garden of Eden was planted in so and so place. But, it is written that the Garden was in Eden.

Where was the Eden on the earth? We do not know the exact place. In these days, we do have the maps of the world. We determine the place according to the maps. For ex: -if one says, where is India? We can say that the India is in so and so place. In those days, there were no such facilities. So, it is hard to say about this matter. Not only that, the names of certain places of those days could not be identified exactly in these days. Their names are changed according to the situation. We forget their names after some period. But, these days our Government introduced the subject ‘History’ and makes the people to memorize the past history. We can say the past to the extent of the written history only. But, it is hard to imagine. When we talk about the history; we must understand that the Holy Bible is also a history. The history of the Garden of Eden was written in Holy Bible. So, the Holy Bible is also a historical book.

Dear readers! Here, if we imagine some extent, we try to imagine where about of the place of the Garden of Eden!

“Now a river went out of Eden to water the Garden, and from there it parted and became four river heads. The name of the first is Pishon; it is the one which encompasses the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold. And the gold of that land is good. Bdellium and the onyx stone are there. The name of the second river is Gihon; it is the one which encompasses the whole land of Cush. The name of the third river is Hiddekel; it is the one which goes toward the east of Assyria. The fourth river is the Euphrates” …. Genesis 2: 10-14.

From this, we know clearly that the birth place of above said four rivers are from the Garden of Eden.

Dear readers! I heard about the river Euphrates and Hiddekel i.e., Tigris among the four rivers. The presence of these two indicates the presence of Pishon and Havilah are also present near the Euphrates and Tigris or Hiddekel. Suppose, the names of these two rivers may be changed, even then Eden is the birth place of these four rivers. But, we must know that they are separated and aloof from one another according to flow. As in Genesis 2: 10-14, these four rivers gave the water for four different places. Suppose, if the birth place of four rivers are aloof from one another, there is no problem to say that the Garden of Eden was the biggest. Suppose, if the birth place of four rivers are near to one another, now also there is no problem to say, because we must grasp that the Garden of Eden was a small one. From this, we can understand the exact place of the Garden of Eden on the earth to the maximum extent. It is written in Holy Bible that the birth place of these four rivers is the Eden, because God planted His garden in Eden, refers Genesis 2: 8. Now, the name of Eden exists or not, the same place in those days was called “The Eden”. So, the Garden which was planted by God was also called as the Garden of Eden.

What else is there in the Garden of Eden apart from every tree good for food, the tree of life, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and head of four rivers? If we think about this, we know that there were animals and birds also. “Out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the air, and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them” …. Genesis 2:19-20. From this, we must grasp that the animals and birds were also present in the Garden of Eden. We can read in the 3rd chapter of Genesis about the serpent that was moving among the trees and talking with the woman. Thereafter, we know in Genesis 2:22 that Lord formed the Eve and kept her as a helper to Adam in the Garden of Eden.

Dear readers! Not only Adam, Eve, animals, birds, every tree good for food, the tree of life and the tree of knowledge of good and evil, there were two invisible power in the Garden of Eden. They were the Lord God, Jehovah and the power of darkness, Satan. After violation of God’s command, it is written that God drove out the man and woman from the Garden of Eden. And the Lord God placed cherubim at the east of the Garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life. For this reason, the human race cannot enter in the Garden of Eden directly. Hence what do we know? There is a gate to the Garden of Eden east ward. We know about this gate from Genesis 3:24. If this gate was not there, there was no need to guard the Garden of Eden. This is the embodiment history of the Garden of Eden.

Dear readers! Thus, where is the Garden of Eden now? Even though the Garden of Eden is mentioned here and there in the Holy Bible in Genesis, there is no informative narration about this. But, our savior, the Lord Jesus Christ favored those, who overcame this world and Satan to live in the Garden of Eden even though Adam and Eve lost the Garden of Eden. So, whoever competes for the virtue and purity of the kingdom of the Lord, and if he gets victory, he can eat the fruits of the tree of life. Where was the Tree of Life before? In Garden of Eden. Where is the Tree of Life now? In Paradise, as Revelation 2:7 says “To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.” If we think spiritually, we must understand that this Garden of Eden is in Paradise.

Dear readers! This Garden has seen both the stages of man i.e., from the highest stage of man to the lowest stage. So, let all of us all fight this world and its deeds and overcome Satan and his temptation, and gain the Garden of Eden as our inheritance! Amen.

[] The tree of life

“And out of the ground the Lord God made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. The tree of life was also in the midst of the Garden and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil”…..Genesis 2: 9.

Dear readers! It is written in above verse that the Lord God planted the tree of life along with all the trees amidst the Garden of Eden. But, even though the Lord Jehovah planted the tree of life from the ground, the Lord did not inform Adam that the tree of life is the fore symbol for the Lord Jesus; and also He did not inform that whoever eats the fruits of this tree live forever. But, the Lord God commanded the man, saying ”Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die”…..Genesis 2: 16-17. Thereafter, when the Lord christened every animal and bird through Adam, He did not inform about the tree of life that whoever eats the fruits of this tree will live forever. Let it be, when the Lord took the woman from the rib of Adam, then also He did not inform about the tree of life. The Satan and the Satan – entered serpent also did not know that the tree of life was in the Garden of Eden, because both the serpent and Satan thought about the tree of knowledge of good and evil, but they did not teach about the tree of life to the woman. From this, the Satan and the Serpent also did not know that the tree of life was in the Garden of Eden and whoever ate this fruit will live forever, because the Lord God hid the secret of the tree of life, but did not reveal to anyone.

Dear readers! Here one great secret is hidden. That is, there is no need for the Lord God to inform about the tree of life. But, there was a need for the Lord to inform about the tree of knowledge of good and evil, because when the Lord formed the man, He did not give death for Adam. And also, the Lord did not say, “Adam! You will live some period only”. For this reason only, the first man had no death when he was formed. This means had the man eaten the fruits of the tree of life, the man would have lived forever. Suppose, if he did not eat the fruits of the tree of life then also he lives forever. From this, if man did eat the fruit of the tree of life or if man did not eat the fruit of the tree of life, the result is same for both cases. That is, he lives forever. So, the Lord God did not teach about the fruits of the tree of life to the first man. But, the Lord God informed to the first man about the tree of knowledge of good and evil, because if the man would have eaten the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil knowingly or unknowingly, the result of which is death. So, the Lord God informed the man that you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.

Dear readers! Until the man ate the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, the Lord God had no reason to tell man about the tree of life. But, after the violation of the Lord’s command, the Lord God thought about the tree of life and guarded the tree of life and blocked the way of the Garden of Eden. “Then the Lord God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of us, to know good and evil. And now, lest he put out his hand and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever – therefore the Lord God sent him out of the Garden of Eden to till the ground from which he was taken. So he drove out the man; and He placed cherubim at the east of the Garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life”…..Genesis 3: 22-24.

Dear readers! Even though there was no need to the Lord to tell Adam about the tree of life, but after violation of the Lords command, the death became inevitable to man. Because of that reason God had the need for the tree of life to save man’s life from death. So, the Lord God made the prophets to prophecy about the tree of life i.e. about the Lord Christ, said, “Look! Whoever walks in the ways of the tree of life, the Lord Christ gets the everlasting life”. The Lord God made prophets in the Old Testament to inform about the tree of life the Lord Jesus Christ. Thereafter, this tree of life incarnated on the earth in the period of the New Testament. The tree of life, the Lord Jesus also taught in His teachings about Him as the living bread. “I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world” …. John 6: 51. Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day”. …. John 6: 54. In this way, the tree of life as the Lord Jesus Christ taught and established this as last supper and said to his disciples to follow forever.

Dear readers! Whoever follows the last supper and walks in His ways and overcomes the world, its deeds, Satan and his deeds, to him, the Lord gives the fruit of the tree of life. “To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God”….. Revelation 2: 7.

So, Dear readers! All of us are moving in the Lord’s ways and are remembering the last supper, which the Lord Christ already established. Whoever overcomes the world, Satan and his deeds, to him the Lord God favored the fruits of the tree of life, which was in Paradise. Also, it is written in the book of proverbs about the ways of the tree of life. “Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her and happy are all who retain her”…..Proverbs 3: 17-18. “The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life”, here, we must grasp that the fulfillment of one man’s desires are not more than the achievement of Christ…… Proverbs 11:30. “But when the desire comes, it is a tree of life”…..Proverbs13:12.

Dear readers! How many yields does the tree of life yield? For what purpose are the leaves of the tree of life used? Which river is near to the tree of life? Where will be the tree of life after the second coming of the tree of life? Let us know about these things clearly.

“In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations”…..Revelation 22:2. As in Revelation 22:1, this river is a pure river of water of life. The tree of life and river of the water of life are both the symbol of the Lord Christ. From this, the tree of life is either side to the river of water of life. The tree of life bore twelve fruits and yields every month. And the leaves of the tree of life heal the sick nations. The tree of life, the Lord Jesus selected twelve disciples as His twelve fruits. Thus, each fruit yields his fruits every month as the believers.

Lastly, let us know clearly about the one, who have not partaken in the tree of life. “But outside are dogs and sources and sexually immoral and murderers and idolatress, and whoever loves and practices a lie”….. Revelation 22:15. These are the people, who are not partaken in the fruits of the tree of life. Apart from these people, the Holy Bible has given entry to other type of people in above list. It is written in Revelation 22:19 about these people. “And if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this properly, God shall take away his part from the book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book”. …..Revelation 22:19

Dear readers! Suppose, we are not in the list of the one, who partook in the tree of life, must think that our life is vanity, accept our sins and trespasses, wash all sins with blood Christ and move to the path of life and become worthy to eat the fruits of the tree of life which gives us eternal life forever.

  • * The qualities of the tree of knowledge of good and evil

“And out of the ground the Lord God made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. The tree of life was also in the midst of the Garden and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil”…..Genesis 2:9.

Dear readers! This tree of knowledge is not an evil tree purely; because the name of this tree itself has the knowledge of good and evil. But, this tree had the command of the Lord. Let us know about the qualities and image of the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

“So, when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate”……Genesis 3:6.

From this, the qualities are,

1. Good for food,

2. Pleasant to the eyes,

3. Desirable to make one wise, and

4. Had the command of the Lord.

This tree had these four qualities. The knowledge of human beings is thrived day by day to achieve and grasping the power of good and evil by the effect of this fruit. And also, the first couple had the spiritual death by the curse of the Lord. How did it happen?

Let us know about this in the chapter, “The first and foremost command of the Lord”.

  • * The Lord appointed Adam as the care taker of Garden of Eden

“Then the Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to tend and keep it”……Genesis 2:15.

Dear readers! According to the above verse, we know that the Lord God made Adam as a farmer. The one, who belongs to any race or any country, digs the earth to cultivate the land, is a farmer. When one farmer digs the earth and cultivates the land, he arranges a guard to his field. If it is not possible, he himself guards his field or crop. The farmer keeps the thistles as fence around his field to guard his crop from animals, cattle, and thieves.

Likewise, we can read in the Holy Bible that the Lord God planted the Garden of Eden eastward.

The Garden of Eden can be guarded in two ways. God Himself can tend and guard the Garden of Eden or He can appoint another one. But, the Lord God choose the second method. How?

“Then the Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to tend and keep it”……Genesis 2:15.

Adam followed command of the Lord until Eve entered into his life. Adam entered in the trespasses and sin through Eve, who was formed from the rib of man, after this, the second method experienced decline in the view of the Lord. So, our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ also mentioned the same in His parable. A certain man planted a vineyard, leased it to vinedressers, and went into a far country for a long time. Now at vintage-time he sent servants to the vinedressers, that they might give him some of the fruit of the vineyard. But, among them, some were beaten, some were treated shamefully, and some were wounded and cast out by them. Then the owner of the vineyard said, “What shall I do? I will send my beloved son probably they will respect him when they see him. Finally they violated the agreement of lease and killed his son. The same incident happened in the matter of the Garden of Eden. Adam and Eve ate the fruits forbidden by the Lord as the vinedressers in the above parable and violated against the King of kings.

What happened in both incidents? The king removed the fields from the vinedressers and kept it in his control. We can say here that he may give it to whomever he wishes. Likewise, the Lord God drove out Adam the first farmer from the Garden of Eden and kept the Garden in His control and guarded it by closing the way of Garden. But, the Lord can give the Garden of Eden again to us. For this reason, the Lord Jesus Christ also said through John that He will give again this Garden of Eden as inheritance. “To him who over comes I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God”…….Revelation 2:7.

Dear readers! Why did Lord God appoint Adam as the caretaker of Garden of Eden?

Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness” ……. Genesis 1:26.

The Lord God formed the man in His image and likeness, the virtue and purity, the Lord God gave Adam whatever He had. One of the qualities man inherited is the work as a farmer. That means the Lord God is also a farmer. In which way is He farmer?

“I am the true vine, and My Farther is the vinedresser”….. John 15:1.

The Lord Jesus Christ Himself said these words. So, Jehovah, the Father of the Lord Jesus is the farmer.

“The hard-working farmer must be first to partake of the crops”….. 2 Timothy 2:6.

According to this verse the Lord God was only the one who worked hard for the Garden of Eden. So, He is the one who partook in the first fruits. Thus, the Lord God incarnated in the form of Jesus Christ on the earth for the sake of rescue of sins of human beings, and ploughed the sin as the field, compensated on the Cross, died and resurrected. For this reason, the Lord Jesus became the first person to partake of the crops of the tree of life. There was no one, who partook of the crops of tree of life before the Lord Christ. After Lord Christ, there are many people came to partake in the tree of life by the grace of the Lord.

“He drove out the man; and He placed cherubim at the east of the Garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life”…..Genesis 3:24.

There after also, the Lord God made Adam to dig the earth and cultivate the land with toil. The reason for this is, the Lord God is also a farmer. So, the Lord God took Adam and put him in the Garden of Eden to tend and keep it. Thereafter, the Lord God drove Adam out to dig the land with toil as in Genesis 3: 17-19.

Dear readers! There was no need for man to cultivate in the Garden of Eden. In that time, there were no mechanical instruments; and there was no knowledge of making those instruments. That means there was no plough; pick axe, crow bar, etc. There was no need to plough the earth. And also, there was no need of guard either for the man or the Lord to tend the Garden of Eden which was planted by the Lord God eastward. What is the reason by saying “Keep and tend?”

Truly, according to the above original sentence, it is not written in the Holy Bible that the man has to tend and guard the Garden of Eden, because there was no need of guard for the Garden of Eden. God Himself was the guard for the Garden of Eden. Suppose, if we think that the animals, cattle, and birds which spoil the Garden may enter in the Garden of Eden, they were already in the Garden of Eden. What cultivation could Adam do in the Garden? He could do nothing. So, it is not written in the Holy Bible about the kind of cultivation that Adam did. If we read in the Holy Bible according to the situation, it is not written that Adam plugged the earth and cultivated the land.

Dear readers! When Adam, who was appointed by the Lord God, was driven out from the divine proximity, the Garden of Eden, we must think that Adam was appointed to tend and keep the earth outside the Garden to fulfill the curse of the Lord as a farmer.

[] Adam’s freedom

“And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat”……Genesis 2:16.

Dear readers! Adam could eat the fruits of every tree in the Garden of Eden without any hindrance. There was no restriction in this. In this modern era, there are so many restrictions for the human beings regarding fruits based on the health condition.

Dear readers! Adam, who was in the Garden of Eden, had no diseases. So, the body of the first man, who was formed by the Spirit of the Lord, had the qualities i.e., holiness, health, innocence, power, etc., to eat all fruits which were in the Garden of Eden. From this, what do we know? There was no fruit forbidden to Adam amongst the fruits given as the inheritance for him by the Lord God. So, the Spirit of God gave freedom to the first man to move according to his will in the Garden of Eden without the fear of enemies, poisonous insects, diseases, atmosphere, etc. In this way, the first man Adam treated as specially among the creatures of the creation. There are pairs for all creatures in the creation. But, the first man had no pair. The first man had no helper. So, he was all alone.

The God, who created the man in his image, was the only helper to the lonely Adam. That means Adam was spending his time with the Lord God in the Garden of Eden. Every creature created by the Lord in the creation had the freedom. The birds of the sky have the complete freedom in flying in the sky. There is complete freedom for the wild animals also in the deserts. There is complete freedom for all the creatures, which lived in the waters. Likewise, there is complete freedom for the creatures, which are living in the heart of the earth.

Dear readers! The Lord God favored special freedom for the man. The Lord God planted the Garden in Eden for the man and created all kinds of valuable trees in it. While Lord God commanding the man, said, “Of every tree of the Garden you may freely eat”. This freedom was given to Adam in the matter of food which is eatable. We give certain selected food only for our children every day. There by I say that it is not freedom. But, by keeping all food items before children and say eat whatever you like, then it is reckoning as the freedom. But, the Lord God while giving the same freedom to Adam, said. “0f every tree of the Garden you may freely eat”. In this situation Adam ate whatever fruit he liked, according the freedom which Lord God gave to him, instead of taking the fruits according to the desires of the Lord. In this matter, we understand that how much love the Lord God had upon Adam.

Dear readers! This freedom was not only limited in the matter of food only for Adam. The Lord God gave freedom for the first man in each and every matter. So, Adam could move anywhere and do anything in the Garden of Eden according to his will. God favored the freedom to Adam without any obstacle. God also gave independent life to the animals, birds, and fishes in the Garden of Eden along with Adam. There were four rivers in the Garden of Eden. So, Adam had freedom regarding the drinking water from any of four rivers. This water was pure, because the Garden of Eden was the birth place for four rivers. Refer Genesis 2:10-14. The water, which came from the birth place of the river, is not artificial. The pure water came from the inner most parts of the earth naturally. God favored this water to Adam who was in the Garden of Eden. The Lord God gave freedom to Adam upon every bird, animal, and creature of the water.

“Then God blessed them, and God said to them, ‘Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it’; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth”…….Genesis 1:28.

Dear readers! From this, we know that the Lord God gave freedom for all from the beginning of this creation. The prior state of the serpent explains to us in Genesis 3:1 that the creatures which were created by the Lord God had the freedom in their life. This serpent had all parts i.e., wings and legs, and was living like an animals and flying like the birds in the sky from one tree to another tree, instead of crawling on the earth and was living free life. From this, the Lord gave one special privilege to the serpent along with the man.

Dear readers! Today, if we compared in every matter of Adam to us, it appears to us that we have no freedom at all. How did we lose our freedom? At first the Adam, who was the forefather of our body, lost the freedom in the Garden of Eden. Let us know how Adam lost this freedom.

“But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surly die”…..Genesis 2:17. This was the command of the Lord. The Eve, not only ate the fruit of the tree of knowledge forbidden by the Lord God, by yielding to the words of the serpent that was surrounded by the Satan, made Adam her husband to eat. In this way, they violated the command of the Lord and became slaves of the sin. The Lord Jesus said about this,

“Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin”……John 8:34.

In this way, both Adam and Eve became slaves of sin. That means, Adam and Eve lost the freedom. It is written in Genesis 3: 7-8,

“Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves coverings. And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the Garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the Garden”….. Genesis 3: 7-8.

In this way, Adam and Eve stepped in to the slavery. The Lord God cursed the Adam and Eve, who lost their freedom, drove them out from the Garden of Eden with the curse of death, which came from the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

Dear readers! The original hard-ships started to Adam and Eve from here onwards. The world, five elements, etc., started to work against Adam. It was changed as the fruitless life even when he worked hard. The earth brought forth the thorns and thistles, even though Adam plugged the earth with great toil according to the Genesis 3:17-18. Today, each and every one, who is plugging the fields, can understand that clearly. We see commonly in our fields that the weeds are growing along with the crops. What is the reason for this? The reason is Adam lost his freedom by eating the fruit which was forbidden by the Lord God.

Dear readers! We can read in the Holy Bible that our Lord Jesus Christ redeemed the sinners, who are slave to the sin in this way through His precious blood. So, Paul says in his letter,

“For you, brethren, have been called to liberty”……Galatians 5:13. Who called them?

The one, who called them, is the Lord Jesus Christ.

For what sake, have been they called?

They have been called to liberty.

If they have been called to liberty, they must be the slaves.

To whom are they slaves?

They are slaves to the sins, so, they have been called to liberty.

Dear readers! Are we, living in this world today, as slaves or free? Suppose, if we are slaves to the sin, world, and Satan, we must dedicate our self to the Lord Christ to become free. Now if we get liberty, we will be living our next life free in the kingdom of heaven. Suppose, if we are slaves, we are bound to live with Satan in the bottomless pit as the slaves. Let us grasp this matter to get ready and to live freely in the love of the Lord! Amen

[] The first and foremost command of the Lord

And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die”…….Genesis 2:16-17.

Dear readers! This is the first and foremost command, which the Lord God gave to the man. This was the law of forbidden fruit. But, the God said to Adam, who was formed with His Spirit, “Of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat”. Different kinds of questions would have been raised in his mind immediately after hearing this command, because if any one says, ‘No’, about anything, we think about, “Why he is saying no?”. And also we think that suppose if we do what will happen. Before these questions arise in Adam’s mind, the Lord God, who knows the innermost secrets of the heart, informed him what will happen in the day he eats of the fruit clearly.

“For in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die”.

This is the command, which they are bound to follow. The Lord God gave this command to the man. Why was this command given to man? Let us know about this now.

Dear readers! Just before this chapter, we know clearly about the freedom in Genesis 2:16 and the Lord God, who favored the freedom. But, we know about the law of the forbidden fruit to the man from Genesis 2:17. Why was the command given to the man, who had complete freedom? Let us know about this now.

Dear readers! Even though the Lord God formed the man in His image and according to His likeness as in Genesis 1:17, we can read in the Psalms 8:5 that He created the man little lower.

“For You have made him a little lower than the angels” …… Psalms 8:5.

“This little lower”, is because of the command only. For this reason, the Lord God gave the first and foremost command to the man. The Lord God created man little lower as the command in the form of the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. The man is bound to follow this. If this command was not to the man, the man was equal to the Lord God. The man is never equal to the Lord, because the Lord God formed the man, but man did not form the Lord. For this reason only, the Lord God formed the man little lower and gave one command to follow. Here, the Lord God had desire regarding the man. The Lord God, who wanted that the man should follow His command, and not yield to the temptation to become the partner with the tree of life, the Lord Jesus as in Revelation 2:7.

Dear readers! Adam, who heard this command, was obeying perfectly. For this reason, the Lord God made Adam to christen all animals and birds. Thereafter, the Lord God thought that it is not good that man should be alone, so He formed the woman Eve from the rib of Adam. Thereafter, man lived by joining with his wife as one flesh. The Father of Adam is the Lord. The mother of Adam is the earth, because he was formed from the dust of the ground. As along as Adam was with his Father, the Lord God and with his mother the earth, followed the command of the Lord and was not subjected to the misfortune.

“Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh”…..Genesis 2:24.

According to this sentence, Adam left his Father and mother and joined his wife Eve and they became one flesh. As long as Adam was living by joining with the Lord and walked in the footsteps of the Lord, he followed the command. And also, he did according to what the Lord God said. When he joined Eve, he had the situation that he bound to violate the command.

Dear readers! As in Genesis 2:1-6, when the woman was alone, Satan, who was in the serpent, deluded the woman with his words and made her to eat the fruit, the first and foremost command of the Lord. In this way, the Eve violated the Lord’s command. Not only that, she made Adam to eat the same fruit. So, Adam also violated the Lord’s command. So, Adam became violator of the command. Here, we have the need to grasp one thing. That is, Adam ate the fruit without asking a single word. That means,

“Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh”…… Genesis 2:24.

This sentence worked strongly and powerfully in the life of Adam. By saying, “One flesh”, they are not separate, but they live as one body. So, Eve must obey whatever the words of Adam. Likewise, Adam also must obey whatever the words of Eve. Here, there is no chance to talk against one another. The same incident happened here. So, when woman gave the fruit, Adam ate the fruit without asking a single word. So, he violated the Lord’s command and had gone against the Lord.

Dear readers! Let us know about the outcome of this violation.

And He said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you that you should not eat?” Then the man said, “The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I ate”. And the Lord God said to the woman “What is this you have done?” And the woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate”. So the Lord God said to the serpent: “Because you have done this, you are cursed more than all cattle, and more than every beast of the field; on your belly you shall go, and you shall eat dust all the days of your life. And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; He shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel”. To the woman He said “I will greatly multiply your sorrow and your conception; in pain you shall bring forth children; your desire shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you”. Then to Adam He said, “Because you have heeded the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree of which I commanded you, saying, “You shall not eat of it’: Cursed is the ground for your sake; in toil you shall eat of it all the days of your life. Both thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you, and you shall eat the herb of the field. In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for dust you are, and to dust you shall return”. …….Genesis 3:11-19.

Dear readers! In this way, the first couple had under gone the death. This death did not leave this world with Adam and Eve. We know clearly that this death is persecuting us from the generation to generation. The reason for this is Adam and Eve, who violated the Lord’s command. But, it is to say, “This death is the first death”.

That means Adam and Eve were not buried physically through this death. For this reason, we can say this is the spiritual death. That means, it is said that all human beings are dead, because they are separated from the relation-ship with the Lord.

“But Jesus said to him, ‘Follow Me and let the dead bury their own dead’”……Matthew 8:22.

Here, in which way are the dead buried the dead?

Here, the first dead are the dead spiritually. Paul said in Ephesians 2:1 about the spiritual death.

“And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins”…..Ephesians 2:1.

Paul said these matters to Ephesians, who were living alive in the Lord Christ. For this reason only, we must grasp that the first dead that was said in Matthew 8:22 by the Lord Jesus is the spiritual death. For this reason only, John also said in Revelation 3:1.

“I know your works, that you have a name that you are alive, but you are dead”…..Revelation 3:1.

Dear readers! Immediately after eating the fruit which was commanded by the Lord not to eat as the first and foremost command, the Adam and Eve were dead spiritually. Thereafter, they were dead physically by the curse of the Lord.

“For dust you are, and to dust you shall return”…..Genesis 3:19.

It is to say that it is death pertains to the flesh. In this way, human beings died spiritually and physically by violating only one command. But, the spiritual death came immediately after eating the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil. But, the death of the body is performing the deed according to the time which given to the spirit by the Lord God.

So, Jesus said, “Follow Me, and let the dead bury their own dead”…….Matthew 8:22.

Here, the Lord Christ said, “Follow Me, and let the one, who died through the fruit of the tree spiritually, bury their own who died through the fruit of the tree spiritually and physically according to the time given to the spirit”. Now we already know clearly about the misfortune, which happened to the human beings by eating the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil, which was commanded not to eat by the Lord God. Is there any way to come out from the spiritual and physical death? Let us know about this.

“Then the dust will return to the earth as it was, and the spirit will return to God who gave it”……Ecclesiastes 12:7.

So, there is no need to worry about the death which pertains to flesh, because this flesh was prepared from the dust only. So, we have nothing to do with dust. So, there is no need to worry, as it returns to dust. But, we have a need to know that how to escape from the spiritual death?

Dear readers! Even though the Lord punished the human beings, who were dead spiritually through the floods and fire and brimstone according to the situation, the Lord gave the covenant and Ten Commandments to them. We can read about the covenant and Ten Commandments in the 5th chapter of Deuteronomy. It is otherwise called as the covenant of Moses. The Lord God Jehovah said here and there in the Old Testament, “Whoever follows these Ten Commandments, I will give heavenly Zion to them”. But, the nation of Israelites could not follow these commandments. The Lord God gave only one command to the man in the Garden of Eden, but the commands given by the Lord God to the nation Israelites are ten. If such misfortunes happened for only one command, let us know how many fortunes and misfortunes happened for these Ten Commands.

Dear readers! So many people say commonly in many matters that we are trying to follow at least one command correctly among the Ten Commands.

Some more people say that we follow first four correctly.

Some people say that we follow seventh and eight commands. Likewise, they go on telling about the Ten Commandments.

Regarding these matters they say that it is very difficult to follow each and every one. But,

“Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you”……Joshua 1:7.

This was the order from the Lord Jehovah. The fortune, which came to the Joshua, who followed the covenant of Ten Commandments in this way, is Joshua 1:9.

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go”……Joshua 1:9.

In this way, whoever follows covenant and do according to the covenant the Lord God will be with them and leads them into the life. The covenant of the Ten Commandments was from the Lord God implemented to the people, who wants to cross the spiritual death, which came by the violation of the first and foremost command. If we think about how many persons escaped from the spiritual death, hardly one among the millions, because,

James said, “For whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all”….. James 2:10.

The one, who follow some commands and not follow some other commands according to just before said, became culprit for all; so, he will not be coming out from the spiritual death.

Dear readers! Let us know about the misfortunes received because of not following the covenant. The divine nation, Israelites experienced torture many times when they were handed over to the heathen by the Lord in the Old Testament. Now, the covenant of Ten Commandments, being in heaven, became the reason to all kinds of misfortunes on the earth and performed its action.

“Then the temple of God was opened in heaven, and the ark of His covenant was seen in His temple. And there were lightnings, noises, thundering, an earthquake, and great hail”…..Revelation 11:19.

In this way, the covenant shows its fury on us, who are experiencing spiritual death.

Dear readers! In these circumstances, the Lord God Himself reduced His fury, glory and power, and incarnated on the earth through Virgin Mary. The Lord Jesus Christ, who performed many glorified deeds among us in this world, favored His grace and purchased us by His blood. But, the Lord Christ also gave some commands to us. Let us know what these commands are and what the plights are now. Here, we must grasp that the reason for the incarnation of the Lord Christ in this world is the spiritual death of the man only. If it is so, which commands did the Lord Christ gave us? He also gave same commands which the Lord God gave as the Ten Commandments through Moses. That means if we are following the Lord Christ perfectly and violated the Ten Commandments, we must grasp that it is useless. It is not just to say that we are in the period of grace, so there is no need of Ten Commandments of the Old Testaments. No one can judge as the righteous according to the covenant. While following the covenant of Ten Commandments, if we are the deserved one to the grace of the Lord Christ, we can escape from the spiritual death by canceling the violated command in the Lord Christ. This much only, but it is not to say that I am in the grace of the Lord Christ, so there is no need of following the Ten Commandments of the Lord. The Lord Christ also taught the Ten Commandments. Let us know the commands which Lord Christ gave us to escape from the spiritual death, instead of Ten Commandments. And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature” …. Mark 16:15.

We are bound to follow this command, which the Lord Christ gave us, along with the Ten Commandments.

Then Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you, and lo, I am with you always even to the end of the age”. Amen…..Matthew 28: 18-20.

Not only that,

“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another”….John 13:34,

So, this second command of the Lord Christ is to fulfill the covenant of the Lord only. If we follow the second command of the Lord Christ, it is equal to fulfill the covenant. So, Paul said,

“Love deeds no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law”……Romans 13:10.

Dear readers! We know so many commands in this topic which is written till now. But, it appears to me that any one of these commands is not burden to us. We have gone against the command according our mind’s weakness. So, here, we must grasp that we have not gone against the commands according to the burden of the law or commands. Likewise, John also said his opinion on the commands like me,

“His Commandments are not burdensome”…..in I John 5:3.

So, our Lord Jesus Christ also compacted too easy to remember the all commandments as two commandments to remember and to follow easily.

“Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength”. This is the first Commandment. And the second, like it, is this; ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself’. There is no other commandment greater than these”……Mark 12: 29-31.

According to this reference, we many think that there is no need to teach the gospel. But, even though we love the Lord with all our heart as the first command, if we love our neighbors as the second command, we must try to see that the neighbor escape from the spiritual death by teaching them the gospel. If we have no love on the neighbors, we do not teach the Gospel to them and we become the reason for the spiritual destruction of the souls of our neighbor. So, our Lord Jesus Christ said, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself, as the second command among the main commands”.

Dear readers! Let us also know the plight of the one who are not following these commands. They are deserved persons to the second death. The Holy Bible explains that this is horrible state.

“Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death”…… Revelation 20:14.

“But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death”……Revelation 21:8.

Dear readers! The first man Adam, who violated the first and foremost command of the Lord, ate the fruit of knowledge of good and evil and had the physical and spiritual death. But, the Lord God gave a chance through the blood of His Son the Lord Jesus Christ to get the previous grandeur and to enter in to everlasting life by escaping from the spiritual death. If we utilize this chance, our Spirit enters in the everlasting life and enjoys the everlasting happiness in the presence of our Savior the Lord Jesus Christ. The Scripture says that whoever utilizes this chance; they are not subjected to the second death. In which state are you in? Please examine before it is too late.

[] Is it not good that man should be alone?

And the Lord God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him”…..Genesis 2:18.

Dear readers! Lord did according to His thought.

“So, Adam gave names to all cattle, to the birds of the air, and to every beast of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper comparable to him. And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. Then the rib which the Lord God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man”… Genesis 2:20-22. From this, we know that the Lord God’s thoughts had the fulfillments already.

Dear readers! Every creature that God created in the creation has the pair. Each and every creature i.e., cattle, birds, insects, aquatic animals, amphibians, etc., has male and female in its race. Male is the helper of female, and the female is the helper of male. It is written in Genesis 1:26& 2:15 about the formation of man.

Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness” …. Genesis 1:26.

“Then the Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to tend and keep it”…..Genesis 2:15.

It is also written in Psalms 8:5-9 about the way of control of the creation through the man by the Lord God. “For You have made him a little lower than the angels, and You have crowned him with glory and honor. You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet, all sheep and oxen-even the beasts of the field, the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea that pass through the paths of the seas. O Lord, our Lord, how excellent is Your name in all the earth…Psalms 8:5-9.

Man, who had so much wealth received from the Lord had no helper according to above verse. The Lord God not only thought that this is a big deficit, but also we know from the scripture that the Lord felt sorry for this. If Adam remained alone in the Garden of Eden, today we would not have remained as the human beings. Now, we are living, we have to understand that it is the result of first man only.

Dear readers! The Lord God felt sorry for man’s loneliness. Adam had no suitable helper in those days. Man’s birth is different from the birth of creatures. Each and every organ in the man and each and every aspect in man’s life do not belong to this world. The Lord God formed the body of man with His own hands and gave His spirit and life. The Garden of Eden, which the Lord God favored to man, also belongs to the Lord only. The wealth, which the Lord God has given to the man belongs to the Lord only. Because each and every thing belongs to the Lord, and there is no relationship to the man with anything which pertains to this world. In this way, Adam did not belong to this world in those days. So, the Lord God did not search the need for a full helper in worldly way, and viewed His spiritual sight once and examined clearly and decided that the woman must be related to the humanity. At that time man was alone. So, there must be a helper as the image of woman. It is waste to create a helper to the man without the difference of sex. Every creature in the creation has the difference in sex. Adam was the only one, who lived without the knowledge of difference of sex. So, the Lord prepared to create another image. “But for Adam there was not found a helper comparable to him. And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. Then the rib which the Lord God had taken from man He made into a woman”….Genesis 2:20-22.

This deep sleep can be said as dead sleep. From this, what do we have to understand? Adam was dead in the matter of the construction of woman, who was taken from the man. This is called as induced deep sleep. It is also called as immovable state. This was the state, in which the sprit was separated from the body. We have to understand that while the woman was being formed by the Lord, Adam looked with his spiritual eye and grasped the formation of the woman from his rib with his spiritual knowledge. After dividing the spirit in this way, Adam was awake from deep sleep and said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.” …. Genesis 2:23. If he said in this way, does it mean that Adam could understand in sleep? So, we must grasp that this sleep not an ordinary sleep.

The woman, who was formed from man, was arranged as the helper to the man by the Lord God. Till now, Adam was joined to the Lord. After that he joined with his wife. As long as Adam was joined with the Lord eating the fruits in the Garden of Eden, Eve, who taken out from him, was embedded in him in the form of flesh and rib” The Lord God said, “It is not good that man should be alone;” and He did so. Here the father to the Adam is the Lord God and the mother to the Adam is the earth. Eve’s father is the Lord God and her mother is Adam. Because Adam’s body came from the earth and Eve’s body came from Adam. “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh” …. Genesis 2:24.

According to the prophecy, now Adam, who was aloof from the Lord and earth who gave the birth to him, must live by joining to the woman who was formed from his rib. After living together for some time, again the loneliness was formed. One day when Eve was away from Adam, the Satan entered in the serpent and taught to Eve about the forbidden fruit and made her to eat. The Scripture explains that the Satan not only made the woman to eat, but also Adam, against the command of the Lord and made them to be subjected to the punishments i.e. death and secular life. Let us know clearly from here onwards about the fortunes and misfortunes which happened to the man when he was alone.

Dear readers! Loneliness causes people pain, danger, destruction, looting, addiction to pornography, rape, etc., in human life. This loneliness is not only against the humanity, but also against the divinity. A lonely man’s life is hard in modern civilization. The life of a lonely person is full of problems. So, the elders’ proverb in Sanskrit language is “Brahmachari Shata Markata”, it means, “A bachelor is equal to hundred monkeys”. This proverb still stands in our society.

Dear readers! We know how a lonely person faces the misfortunes, in his life. It is easy to kill a person in his loneliness. We, as the believers of today, should not forget that we are living in such a dangerous era. Like this, the dangerous aspect of lonely life is seen through media. The accidents, which are formed through the loneliness are not new. Let us know about the loneliness through the Scripture.

Dear readers! When first woman Eve was alone, she was tempted by Satan through the serpent. She not only yielded to the teachings, but also ate the forbidden fruit and went against the command of the Lord. She made the man to eat the fruit. So that he also was against the command of the Lord along with her. For this reason, he deserved the death by the Lord and became the cursed one. If the woman Eve had been together with her man Adam, this misfortune would not have happened. This is the explanation about the lonely life of the first couple. Likewise, it is written about Cain in this way. “Now Cain talked with Abel his brother; and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain raised against Abel his brother and killed him” …. Genesis 4:8. The loneliness is the reason for the death of Abel. We can read from the Holy Bible that Cain was cursed by the Lord when Abel was killed and became vagabond in his life. The Lord God compassionate towards Cain, who became a vagabond, set a mark.

“Now it came to pass in those days, when Moses was grown, that he went out to his brethren and looked at their burdens. And he saw an Egyptian beating a Hebrew, one of his brethren. So he looked this way and that way, and when he saw no one, he killed the Egyptian and hid him in the sand” …. Exodus 2:11-12. This action of murder was happened in loneliness.

“And he arose that night and took his two wives, his two maidservants, and his eleven sons, and crossed over the ford of Jabbok. He took them, sent them over the brook, and sent over what he had. Then Jacob was left alone; and a Man wrestled with him until the breaking of day. Now when He saw that He did not prevail against him, He touched the socket of his hip; and the socket of Jacob’s hip was out of joint as He wrestled with him. And He said, “Let Me go, for the day breaks”. But he said, “I will not let You go unless You bless me!” And He said, “Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel; for you have struggled with God and with men, and have prevailed” ……Genesis 32:22-28. Here only a good thing happened, because Jacob was with the Lord God.

Thereafter, it is written as in 2 Samuel 11:1 about the loneliness of the great king David. The king David purchased this loneliness according the weakness of his mind, but really he was not weak. But, he became weak. The reason to the weakness of David was his loneliness. David’s desired loneliness lead him to sin openly. We can read as in 2 Samuel 11:2 that this sin attracted the heart of David. David, who forgot himself, was attracted to the beauty of the woman. At that time, the king David forgot about his nation, the war, the divinity, and the responsibility which the Lord God kept on him. Apart from this, instead of casting his eyes on her, he came to know her details through his servant and he was laid with her. This was the temptation in loneliness of David, a man of God, the prophet, an author of Psalms, the lamp to the Israelites, the great king, great philosopher, and forefather of the Lord Jesus. We know that the harm that happened through David, who experienced this through his dynasty.

Three kinds of great evil deeds in the life of David were,

(1) aloof from divine nation by violating the divine law;

(2) lay with her

(3) to kill her husband in the battle field.

We can read in 2 Samuel that the king David experienced the grief, obstacles and troubles by the curse of the Lord. The Lord God struck the first born son, who was begotten by Bathsheba whom the king seduced, and died.

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour” ….1 Peter 5:8. The Satan wants lonely people. It means by loneliness we gave lenience to the Satan.

So, dear readers! We must grasp that the loneliness is the reason for all kinds of problems. So, we should take care of ourselves without getting entangled in it. Instead of craving for loneliness, we must desire the fellowship of the servants of the Lord to lead a happy life in Lord. Here, we must grasp that we must lead a family life. If not, we must lead a life in the Spirit of Lord by leaving the loneliness. Amen.

[] The greatest and biggest ceremony of the christening

“Out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the air, and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them. And whatever Adam called each living creature that was its name. So Adam gave names to all cattle, to the birds of the air, and to every beast of the field”…..Genesis 2:19-20.

Dear readers! We know from above sentence that the ceremony of the christening is started from the Garden of Eden. In these days, we do the ceremony of christening for new born child independent of the religion we belong to. From that day, the new born child is called with this name. But, the day of christening in the period of the Old Testament was performed with the deed of circumcision on eight day. Likewise, the same ceremony was held to John the Baptist also.

Now so it was, on the eighth day, that they came to circumcise the child; and they would have called him by the name of his father, Zacharias. And his mother answered and said. “No; he shall be called John”…..Luke 1:59-60.

Likewise, the same happened in the matter of Christ in the period of New Testament also.

“And when eight days were completed for the circumcision of the Child, His name was called JESUS, the name given by the angel before He was conceived in the womb”…..Luke 2:21.

Likewise, the ceremony of the christening was held in the Garden of Eden. Here, the ceremony of the christening was not performed for the new born child. But it was performed for all cattle, birds, and the beast of the field. Here we must grasp the matter that whatever Adam called the cattle, the birds and the beasts of the field, the same names are called for those cattle, birds and beasts of the field even today also. Dear readers! It is natural that the surprise arise in us how the innocent Adam could christen all cattle, birds and beast of the field? Here, we must grasp that this ceremony of christening was not performed with Adam’s own knowledge. In which way, could Adam call the cattle, birds and beasts of the field? Adam called the cattle, birds, and beasts of the field according to the instigation of the Holy Spirit. Was it not the power of the Lord that Moses could write the history which happened before his birth? How could he write about the formation of creation? Moses was an illiterate and stammered. If Moses could be writer of the first parts of the Holy Bible, we must grasp that it is the instigation of the Holy Spirit. Likewise, we must grasp that John also could not write about the end of this world and the incidents which will happen in the period of the second coming of the Lord Christ with his own knowledge. John could write only according to the leading of the Holy Spirit and according to the instigation which came through the Holy Spirit. So, John said about himself,

“And he carried me away in the Spirit”…..Revelation 21:10.

Likewise, when Adam was carried in the Holy Spirit, the Lord God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the air out of the ground, and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them. And whatever Adam called each living creature that was its name. So, Adam gave names to all cattle, to the birds of the air, and to every beast of the field.

Dear readers! Here one question may arise in us that the people of all languages are not called the name, which was christened by Adam. What is the motive to say that whatever Adam called each living creature that was its name? The people lived as one tongue and as one nation before the construction of the tower Babel. It is written in the Holy Bible that the Lord God interchanged their languages during the time of the construction of the tower Babel. The present day tongues are the tongues, which were formed at that time only. That means there is one name for every animal in any language. This name was called according to their language which was given by the Lord God. That means they called the name, which was given by Adam, in their language or tongues. Here, we cannot forget that the Lord God gave these languages.

“And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. Now there were dwelling in Jerusalem Jews, devout men, from every nation under heaven. And when this sound occurred, the multitude came together, and were confused, because everyone heard them speak in his own language” …… The Acts of the Apostles 2:4-6.

From this, there is no doubt that we are calling the cattle, birds, and beasts of field with the name, which Adam gave, from our own languages.

So, Dear readers! We do not know that how many days, was the first ceremony of the christening held, but we can say that it was the biggest and greatest ceremony of the christening. Amen.

  • * The lord God created the woman…… Adam called her as the woman

And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. Then the rib which the Lord God had taken from man, He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man. And Adam said: “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man”……Genesis 2:21-23.

Dear readers! Now let us know the secret in the construction of a woman.

“It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him”…..Genesis 2:18.

But, just before the Lord God did a helper comparable to him, He formed every beast of the field and every bird of the air and brought them before Adam. And the Lord God created the instigation of the Holy Spirit in Adam and made him to christen every beast of the field and every bird of the air.

Thereafter, again the Lord thought in this way.

“But for Adam there was not found a helper comparable to him”….Genesis 2: 20.

Dear readers! Here, two thoughts of the Lord are appeared to us. The first and foremost thought of the Lord in this chapter is,

“It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him”.

The second thought which came after the first thought to the Lord God is,

“But for Adam there was not found a helper comparable to him”. Among these two sentences, the Lord God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the air out of the ground, and brought them to Adam. Adam christened them by the instigation of the Holy Spirit. Here, we know from about two sentences that the Lord God saw that Adam could keep any one among the animals and birds as a helper. But, Adam did not keep any one among the animals and birds as a helper to him. Thereafter, the Lord God said, “But for Adam there was not found a helper comparable to him”.

So, there was no such thought in the view of the Lord also to keep these creatures as a helper to Adam. So, the Lord God is ready to make a helper comparable to him. At first a part in this, the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept. And He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place.

Dear readers! Here, a secret is hidden. We have side- ribs. These ribs are two sides in us. But, even though Adam also had the ribs in both sides just like us, in Adam one side- rib would have been more than the ribs of us. It is written in the Holy Bible that the Lord God took this rib and closed the flesh in its place. But, which side was the Lord God closed up the flesh in its place? This place is the place in which the Lord God took one rib. Suppose, if the Lord God did not close that place with flesh, is it not an empty place or a pit! For this reason only, the Lord God closed up the flesh in its place.

Dear readers! Then the Lord God had taken the rib from man, He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man. Here, it is not written that the Lord God did not use the dust of the ground in construction the woman. But, according to the words, which Adam said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh”; the Lord closed up the flesh in its place and performed the construction of the woman with same flesh. That means the bone and flesh of Adam were used in the constructive deed of a woman.

Dear readers! In this, a secret was hidden.

That is, man be joined to his wife, and they shall be come one flesh as in Genesis 2:24. “Woman is the flesh and bone of my body”, this opinion is in man’s thought, and then only, they become together as one flesh.

Likewise, “I came out from the rib and flesh of my man, so I must give honor to him”, this opinion is in the woman’s thought, then only, they become together as one flesh.

So, the Lord God did not form the woman with dust, but with the bone and flesh of the man. So, Paul says in his teachings in this way. “Every sin and trespasses will hold outside the body, but, the adultery held within the body, so it spoils the body”.

Dear readers! The meaning in this sentence is the man must be with one woman, who was taken from his body. But, he should not spoil the flesh and bone of another’s body. So, we see so many diseases which started with adultery. But, when the Lord God brought the woman near Adam, Adam said “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man”. Here why did not Adam call the woman as the sister or daughter? We have the need to know why Adam called her as the woman.

Dear readers! There was no helper for Adam. All that time, the Lord, God made woman and brought her to the man. The helper may be a sister, daughter, mother, or wife etc., in every matter, they mingled with each other, except joined together in flesh. It is also not written in Genesis that Adam and Eve were together and they shall become one flesh. But, here we have the need to know about the blessings to the human beings from the Lord.

“Then God blessed them, and God said to them, ‘Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it’”…..Genesis 1:28.

By this reason only, when the Lord God brought her to the man, Adam, who was instigated by the Holy Spirit, said “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man”. That means he received her as his wife. For this reason, after they violated the command of the Lord, they became the fore mother and father to so many nations. Amen

[]One flesh

“Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh” …. Genesis 2:24.

Dear readers! This is a great annoyance which is entangled in most of the houses. This is annoyance between mother-in-law and daughter-in-law. We are commonly seen in our society that a mother teaches her son good ways of life. The son who follows the words of his mother without breaking gets a good name. We are commonly seeing such a person is praised by so many elders. After the marriage of same son, we are commonly hearing that the same mother bewails about her son that he is not hearing her words anymore. What is the original reason for this? The reason for this is Genesis 2:24 only.

“Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to this wife, and they shall become one flesh” ……Genesis 2:24.

Dear readers! The Lord God said firmly in this verse that a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife. Is there any way to remove their moaning noise? As parents, we must realize that one day our child shall leave us to join their spouse. So, we must be ready for that day. After the marriage of their son, it is good that they must live aloof from the matters of newly married couple as for as possible.

Dear readers! What about the parents?

“Honor your father and your mother, as the Lord your God has commanded you, that your days may be long, and that it may be well with you in the land which the Lord your God is giving you” …. Deuteronomy 5:16.

According to this sentence, the man, who already married should honor his father and mother, who live aloof in his matters. Then only his days may be long.

“You shall raise before the gray headed and honor the presence of an old man, and fear your God” ……Leviticus 19:32.

Dear readers! From this, what do we know? The parents should give some private space for their married children and stop involving in their day to day life. The man honors their parents, who are doing in this way, and leave them in the fear of the Lord and join his wife and they live as one flesh.

Dear readers! If we think spiritually about new coming daughter-in-law in the house, we can understand one thing. Before the coming of, the daughter-in-law, there is one master in that house. He is the father of her husband. Till now, everyone in that house is doing according to the master, the father. But, in the matter of daughter-in-law, her husband is her first and foremost master. The Holy Bible also says that she must live by obedient to her husband. But, when she is entering in that house with her master i.e. her husband, there is another master whom she comes across i.e., the father-in-law. What does the Holy Bible say in this matter?

“No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon” ……Matthew 6:24.

From this, the daughter-in-law selected her husband as her master and go against to the second master.

Dear readers! In the matter of wife, the Holy Bible says that she must obey her master i.e. her husband. But, in the matter of daughter-in-law, the parents of her husband i.e., the father-in-law and the mother-in-law, must recognize one thing that there is one master for the daughter-in-law more than them and also grasp that she must be obedient to her master. And they should not give orders to her and give her freedom to be obedient to her husband i.e. the master. If everyone lives according to this, their lives will be happy.

[] The glorified white robes

“And they were both naked, the man and his wife” …. Genesis 2:25.

Dear readers! This verse says that Adam and his wife were naked. This sentence was written before they entered in the sin.

“Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves coverings” …. Genesis 3:7.

This sentence was written after they entered into the sin. Were they not aware that they were naked ever since the creation till they entered into the sin? Let us know the divine secret in this matter that they came to know that they were naked after they ate the forbidden fruit.

Dear readers! When the Lord God created Adam, He said:

“Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness” …. Genesis 1:26.

After His thought, He created both male and female. But, did the Lord God keep them naked? But it is written,

“And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed” …. Genesis 2:25.

They were not ashamed, so they did not know that they were naked. When Satan entered in the serpent and spoke with woman, he did not say about their nakedness. The Lord God also did not say that they were naked. We can read in the Holy Bible that the robes of Jesus transformed as the white robes in the transfiguration of the Lord Christ.

“Now after six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John, his brother, brought them up on a high mountain by themselves, and was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and His clothes became as white as the light. And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with Him” …. Matthew 17:1-3.

From this, we know that the worldly garments changed as the glorified white robes. These glorified white robes shined like light and covered the body without showing their external parts. What they see in Matthew 17:1-3 is His face shone like the sun and His clothes became as white as the light. Because of this they could not see anything. It is written in the Holy Bible that the divine angels also could wear the robes.

“His countenance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow” …. Matthew 28:3.

From this, the angels, which were in invisible state, had the glorified white robes.

Dear readers! The Lord God also has the white robes. The angel of the Lord also had the white robes. It written is in the Holy Bible that the one, who enters in the heavenly kingdom wears the white robes. “They shall walk with Me in white, for they are worthy” …. Revelation 3:4.

“Around the throne were twenty-four thrones, and on the thrones I saw twenty-four elders sitting, clothed in white robes; and they had crowns of gold on their heads” …. Revelation 4:4.

“After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands” ……Revelation 7:9.

In this way, the people who are worthy to enter in the kingdom of heaven, 24 elders and the selected people, who are from all nations had to wear the white robes. We cannot forget that they are in the proximity of the Lord. What is the reason for the Lord God creating Adam and Eve as naked?

Dear readers! Truly, Adam and Eve were not naked, because God created man in His own image, according to His likeness. That means in which way He was, in the same way He created the man. He made Adam and Eve to wear the robes with which He adorned them. They are the glorified white robes. Then why did God used the word, “Naked”?

Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’- and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked” ......Revelation 3:17.

From this, we have the need to know that our life is naked life forever. And we must recognize that each and every thing in this world will not come along with us. So, the Lord God said to the first human being according to this matter, “You were naked”, because, the Lord God already knew that they ate the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, and became naked. So, the Lord God made Moses to write in Genesis 2:25 that they were naked. From this, Adam and Eve had worn the glorified white robes. So, in the connection of Satan spoke to Eve through the serpent, he did not say, “You were naked”.

Dear readers! Let us have the need to know the time when Adam and Eve lost the glorified white robes. When Eve trusted the words of Satan through the serpent and ate the fruit of tree of knowledge of good and evil by violating the command of the Lord, they came to know that they were naked. That means they did not know that they lost the glorified white robes. So, they said,

“I heard Your voice in the Garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid myself” …. Genesis 3:10.

The Lord God cursed Adam and Eve, as they were not worried about the lost glorified white robes; and when the Lord God drove out the man from the Garden of Eden, it is written in Genesis 3:21 that He made tunics of skin, and clothed them.

Dear readers! Let us have the need to know the matter that how we get again the glorified white robes, which Adam and Eve lost.

“And they shall walk with Me in white, for they are worthy” …. Revelation 3:4.

Here it is said, “They are worthy”. Here, we must grasp that the worthy people are those, who ended the deeds of Satan and world. The Lord God gave them the glorified white robes, which was lost by Adam and Eve. After they wear, they move with the Lord.

Dear readers! We must recognize in which state we are in because we must wear the glorified white robes again. So, we have the need to end the deeds of the Satan and the world. Let us gain the worthiness for the glorified white robes, which the Lord God promised to us. Amen

[]Ashamed

“And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed” ……Genesis 2:25.

Dear readers! According to the previous chapter, the Lord God, who already knew that the man lost the glorified white robes and became the naked and who knew the future, prophesied before Adam and Eve became the naked in Genesis 2:25 that they were both naked. In the same sentence, the Lord made to prophecy the words, which are related to our topic. That is, “They were not ashamed”. Now, let us know the quality of ashamed clearly.

Dear readers! The quality of Ashamed is absent in the Lord God, because, He will never do the shameful acts. So, when the Lord God created Adam and Eve, He gave glorified white robes to cover their nakedness; so, He made them without ashamed. But, the quality of Ashamed entered in Adam and Eve when they ate the forbidden fruit of the Lord. The quality of Ashamed started from Adam and Eve in the human race. But, the reason for the entry of ashamed and by losing of the glorified white robes till now, they were afraid and hid themselves behind the trees when they heard the voice of the Lord. The qualities for Adam and Eve for hiding behind the trees are 1. Ashamed and 2. Fear.

Here, Adam and Eve were ashamed for their nakedness and for their deed. Not only that, they hid from the Lord God, because they were afraid of the Lord. The ashamed must not thrive day by day along with the sin. But, it is written in Genesis 6:1-6 that the human beings spread the sin beyond limits. But, it is not written that they were not ashamed for their spread sin. But, after Adam and Eve entered in the sin by violating the divine command, their eyes were opened and hid behind the trees due to fear for the sound of the Lord God. So, even though the Lord God cursed them for their sin, he made them the tunics of skin to cover their nakedness for their salvation. But, for the people were not ashamed for their sin in Genesis 6th chapter, the Lord God whipped them away through the floods.

Likewise, in the period of Lot, the people in the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah were trained in the adultery and trained to ravish Lot and the angels, which came to guard their family. But, it is not written that they were ashamed for their sins. So, we can read in the Holy Bible that the Lord God destroyed the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah with fire and brim stone.

Dear readers! Paul the apostle also prophesied about this ashamed.

“What fruit did you have then in the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death” …. Romans 6:21. But, Adam and Eve were ashamed later for their deeds, even though its end is death, they could get the skin tunics for their salvation from the Lord. The people in Genesis 6th chapter and the people of the cities Sodom and Gomorrah were not ashamed for their sinful deeds, then and there; they received their end, “The death”.

So, Paul said to us, “What fruit did you have then in the things of which you are now ashamed? And also, Paul gave warning to us, “You must escape from the end of sin i.e., the death”.

Dear readers! In which matter, should we, who live in the period of grace, be ashamed? In which matter, should we not be ashamed? Let us know these things also. Today, if we see besides us as for as possible ways, the robbery, bribe, adultery, cheating, etc., are seen. Even in Christian also, it is found. The people who say, “I am Christian”, are following the qualities of Satan. If anyone says, “It is a fault”; they are not in a position to hear, because to days’ society is not in a position to repent by knowing their faults.

” Because, you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing, – and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked” …. Revelation 3:17.

But, the Lord God said as in Genesis 2:25, they do not know that they are naked, so they are not ashamed. But in which matter are we ashamed? And in which matter are we should not be ashamed? We should not be ashamed in the matter of the Lord and in the matter of the gospel. But, the people of today’s era are ashamed in the matter of the Lord and in the matter of preaching gospel, but they are not ashamed of their trespasses and sins. Instead of this, they argue that whatever they did is correct. But, the Lord Jesus Christ said,

“For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him the Son of Man also will be ashamed when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels” …. Mark 3:38.

According to this sentence, whoever is ashamed for the Lord and for the gospel, the Son of Man, the Lord Jesus Christ also will not accept him before the glory of His Father. Likewise, while the Paul the Apostle told about the gospel, said,

“I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ” ….in Romans 1:16. So, whoever is ashamed about the Lord God and gospel of Christ, we must grasp that they will be ashamed before the presence of the Lord. Whoever is not ashamed in above two matters and ashamed about their sins will not be ashamed before the presence of the Lord.

Dear readers! The Holy Bible taught in Genesis 2:25 that they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed. This sentence was proclaimed before they know the quality of ashamed and when they were adorned with glorified white robes. At that time, Adam and Eve were not naked. They were clothed with glorified white robes. The Lord God, who knew the future, saw the down fall of man in His view. When the Lord God sees the man about his future, He saw that they were naked. And also, He recognized that they are not ashamed for their sins. So, we must grasp here that the Lord God made to write this verse in this way. Amen.

[] The cunning serpent

“Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made” ……Genesis 3:1.

Dear readers! The serpent was the one among all the beasts of the field which the Lord god had made. This serpent had the cunning quality. The one, who gave the cunning quality to the serpent, is the Lord God only. But, at first, this serpent was leading holy life in the Garden of Eden.

A question may arise in us that the serpent is unholy, but how did it lead a holy life in the Garden of Eden?

The Garden of Eden is the holy one. The Lord God Himself made every creature and birds in it with the dust of the ground. So, each and every one in the holy Garden of Eden is holy. This serpent is not like now a day’s serpent, had wings and legs, and lived flying from tree to tree. The proof for this is in Genesis 3:14.

So, the Lord God said to the serpent. “Because you have done this, you are cursed more than all cattle, and more than every beast of the field; on your belly, you shall go, and you shall eat dust all the days of your life” …. Genesis 3:14.

From this, what can we understand? This serpent had the legs like a cattle and wings for flying like a bird.

Dear readers! What is the reason for the curse to the serpent, which had this much privilege? The cunning quality in the serpent gave the place for the Satan. The Satan surrounded the serpent by using the cunning quality and told a lie.

“You will not surly die” …. Genesis 3:4.

The lie is against the kingdom of the Lord. The Lord Christ is the replica of the righteousness and purity, but not for the lies. But, the Satan is the replica of lies.

“You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and father of it” …. John 8:44.

So, Satan basing on the cunning quality in the serpent surrounded him and made him to lie. We must think about the plight of the serpent, which was surrounded by Satan and laid.

“But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers, and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie” …. Revelation 22:15.

According to the above verse, the Lord God cursed the serpent who lied. After this the serpent lived by crawling on the earth.

Dear readers! The prophet, Isaiah also prophesied about the serpent which was in the Garden of Eden.

“In that day the Lord with His severe sword, great and strong, will punish Leviathan the fleeing serpent, Leviathan that twisted serpent; and He will slay the reptile that is in the sea” …. Isaiah 27:1.

Leviathan the fleeing serpent is the cunning serpent in the Garden of Eden. But, this serpent was cursed though the word, the sword of the Lord. The fleeing serpent changed as the Leviathan that twisted serpent through this curse. This twisted serpent also performed the deeds against to the Lord and brought up the sin along with the people and changed them as the dynasty of the serpent. For this reason, the Lord Christ said in this way.

“Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks” …. Matthew 12:34.

In this way, the Lord God punishes the dynasty of vipers from Genesis 6th chapter. But, it is written that the punished twisted serpent changed as the reptile in the sea.

“I will tell you the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns. The beast that you saw was and is not, and will ascend out of the bottomless pit and go to perdition” …. Revelation 17:7-8.

It is written in the same chapter that the sea is the nations. That means the twisted serpent will rise from the dynasty of the serpent i.e., the nation i.e., the sea. But, the sentence in the Holy Bible says he will go to perdition.

Dear readers! Let us know how Satan talked to Eve by entering in the serpent. Ahead of this, we have the need to know certain incidents, which are happening now. We see many temples of Satan around us. Among them, some are the images of human being; some more are the images of animals, birds, trees, etc. The people are worshipping by keeping these images in that temple. If we ask any one, whom are you worshipping? They say, “These are gods”.

Do we think at any time about this? If we think about this, we can recognize one prominent secret. Satan deludes the people with such images. And he is worshipping in that image by attributing them as the lord. Likewise, Satan entered in the serpent by basing on the cunning quality in the Garden of Eden and made Adam and Eve to violate the command of the Lord and changed them to give birth to the dynasty of the serpent. Even though the serpent in the Garden of Eden was changed into the twisted serpent, this was a cursed one.

So, the Satan is using the serpent immensely among the heathen and makes it to stand as goddesses. And also, the Satan makes the people to worship the serpent as the goddesses. But who told these people to worship this serpent? If we think about this, we know that whoever is surrounded by Satan, tell lies to these people to worship the serpent saying that it is the image of the Lord. The Satan, who made the serpent to lie in the Garden of Eden, is performing these deeds now by surrounding the dynasty of the serpent. Even though the Lord God is punishing the serpent, which is changing its image into many transfigurations, and its dynasty here and there, lastly the Holy Bible says that the serpent changes as the wild beast on the sea and go to the perdition.

Here, we must recognize that any cursed one is the dwelling place of Satan. So, the race, heathen is worshipping the Serpent, who is the dwelling place of Satan, and also saying that there is world for the Serpent. In this world, there are most powerful serpents. This is called as the “Nagalokam”.

  • Nagalokam: – it is written in Hindu theology. It is the dwelling place of the serpent.

In this way, the dynasty of the serpent raises the name of Satan and degraded the name of the Lord. So, the word of the Lord warns them in Revelation 22:15.

“But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie” ……Revelation 22:15.

Here we must recognize the meaning in, “Outside”. “The outside”, means the bottomless pit which was prepared for Satan and his angels.

So, Dear readers! We must reject the deeds of Satan and the serpent which are against to the Lord and rectify our lives worthy for the entry of the Heaven, the blessing of the Lord. Amen.

[] The first and foremost lie

Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the Garden?’” And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit of the trees of the Garden; but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the Garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die”. And the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die”. For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened and you will be like God, knowing good and evil”. So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate…….Genesis 3:1-6.

Dear readers! Let us know about the first and foremost lie and its plight from the original verse. If we say about an incident to someone, later if we hear the same incident from anther, it is common that the same incident changes according to their understanding. The same happened in this incident.

And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the Garden you may freely eat; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die” …. Genesis 2:16-17.

The Lord God said this command to Adam, but not said to Eve. But it is written in our original sentence that the Eve said about this command to the serpent. If we think who told Eve, we know that the Lord God and Satan did not tell her. The serpent, who was surrounded by Satan, also did not tell Eve, because, the Serpent asked Eve to know about the forbidden tree here.

And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the Garden?” …. Genesis 3:1.

Dear readers! Adam must be the one who told Eve about this commandment. After Adam joined the woman, Eve, who was formed from his bone and flesh, he would have said with Eve by showing the forbidden fruit tree about the command of the Lord. The serpent, who was surrounded by the Satan, and who was aloof from them, did not hear clearly about this matter. So, the serpent, which was surrounded by the Satan, waited for the time, when Adam was absent, said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, “You shall not eat of every tree of the Garden?” It looks as though the serpent and Satan, who had the little knowledge, extracted the matter from Eve about the fruit of the forbidden tree. The serpent would have asked Adam about this question, he would have told correctly what God said, because, he was the only person who had this command from the Lord. But the serpent asked Eve by seeing her loneliness.

Dear readers! Here, it looks as though the words of the woman were exaggerated. Let us know what she talked in exaggerated manner through the Scripture. The woman did not hear the command directly from the Lord. So, the woman gave the information about the forbidden tree to the serpent in exaggerated manner.

And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit of the trees of the Garden; but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the Garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die” …. Genesis 3:2-3.

What was the command of the Lord which the Lord God given to Adam?

And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the Garden you may freely eat, but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die” …. Genesis 2:16-17.

If we scrutinize these two sentences clearly, even though it looks similar in saying, has some exaggeration in the Eve’s saying. That is, the woman did say to the serpent, “Nor shall you touch it”.

But, there is no specification of touching it or not in the command, which the Lord God gave to Adam.

But, it is only written,

“You shall not eat” …. Genesis 2:16-17.

But, Eve said to the serpent by adding some more words, “That nor shall you touch it”.

It looks like a lie, but it is the manner of exaggeration.

But, what is the plight for the one, who said in exaggerated manner? “For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plague’s that are written in this book” ……Revelation 22:18.

According to the verse, the plagues, which were entangled to the earth, is the Satan only. God gave this plague to Eve. The Satan, who grasped these things, made the serpent to tell first and foremost lie. And the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die”. For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil” …. Genesis 3:4-5. The mind of the woman was turned on the tree of knowledge of good and evil to the exaggerated words of her and by adding the first and foremost lie of the Satan through the serpent. At that time, the Satan, who was the plague, which came by the exaggerated words of the woman, surrounded her by leaving the serpent. So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband along with her, and he ate. So, Adam and Eve violated the command of the Lord and gone against the Lord. This first and foremost lie did not end in the history of the Garden of Eden, but thrived day by day along with people. We can read in the Holy Bible about plight of the lies.

“There is none righteous, no, not one; there is none who understands; there is none who seeks after God, they have all gone out of the way” ……So Romans 3:10-12.

  • * Eve was the first one to eat the forbidden fruit! Wasn’t she naked when she provoked Adam to sin?

“So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate” …. Genesis 3:6.

Dear readers! Before knowing this matter, there is a need to know about the command of the Lord.

And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the Garden you may freely eat; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it shall surely die” ……Genesis 2:16-17.

According to the chapter “The glorified white robes” Adam and Eve had worn the gloried white robes in the Garden of Eden. But, they did not know which is good and which is evil. If I say in one word, the life of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden is the life equal to the angels of heaven. They did not know the quality of ashamed according to the Genesis 2:25. In such situation, Satan provoked the woman through the serpent. Refer Genesis 3:1-7. Thereafter, the woman took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate. Then the eyes of both of them were opened and they knew that they were naked.

Dear readers! In our original sentence, firstly the woman took of its fruit and ate. The quality of this fruit is to give the knowledge of good and evil only. The eye of Eve was opened by the effect of this fruit. The meaning in this is the eyes do not pertain to the body, but the enlightenment of mind only. For this reason, the quality of ashamed started in the woman. But, when she went near Adam, did she make him to do the sin covering her nakedness or without covering her nakedness?

Dear readers! Already, we all know the matter that there were no clothes for them to cover their nakedness. But, a question may arise in our mind that the quality of ashamed would have not arisen in the woman. It is written,

“Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves coverings” …. Genesis 3:7.

According to above verse, after the eyes of both of them were opened, the quality of ashamed entered and started in them; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves coverings. This incident happened after the eyes of both of them opened. But, ahead of the man, the woman ate the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, how did she go before him? Did she cover herself?

“But if a woman has long hair, it is a glory to her; for her hair is given to her for a covering” ……I Corinthians 11:15.

According to this verse, after she ate the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, the quality of ashamed entered in her, here we must grasp that she probably covered her nakedness with her hair and went to Adam. Amen.

[] The eyes of both of them were opened

“Then the eyes of both of them were opened” ……Genesis 3:7.

Dear readers! It is written in our original verse, “That the eyes of both of them were opened”. Were not the eyes of both of them opened before? If not, even though they had eyes, had they no vision? If we read from Genesis 3:1 to Genesis 3:7, it is written that Eve could see the serpent and the tree of knowledge of good and evil. And also, Adam could see Eve and the fruit which was given by Eve. But, it is written in our original sentence that the eyes of both of them were opened. Let us know the inner meaning in this.

Then the Lord God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of Us, to know good and evil” ……Genesis 3:22.

From this, we must grasp that the knowledge of good and evil started in them after they ate the forbidden fruit. Till now whatever they could not see, after eating the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, they could see.

For Ex: – Before they ate the forbidden fruit, they were covered with the glorified white robes. But, they did not know this. But, after they ate the forbidden fruit of knowledge of good and evil, they knew that they were naked.

The meaning in, “The eyes of both of them were opened, is to know in this way only.

[]Coverings

“They knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves covering” …….Genesis 3:7.

Dear readers! The Garden of Eden is only the first and fore most garden, which was formed in the creation with a group of great trees. The place, in which all creatures lived in unity i.e., all cattle, all birds of the air and every beast of the field is in the Garden of Eden only. The central point to the pleasant atmosphere and to the divinity is the Garden of Eden only.

Dear readers! The place, in which the Lord God was walking before the consecration of His spirit in the body of a man, is the Garden of Eden only. So, the Garden of Eden is called as the holy Garden. The creatures, which lived in the Garden of Eden, were also the holy creatures. We can understand from the prominent matters in the history of the Garden of Eden that the first couple, being the children of the Lord in the holy garden, lived as the partner in His spirit and in His inheritance, i.e. the Garden of Eden.

Firstly, let us know clearly about the Garden of Eden, which the Lord God planted with His word. The Lord God did not plant the Garden of Eden on the earth for His own sake. When the Lord God created the man in His image and His likeness, He planted the Garden of Eden for the existence of the man and for executing the spiritual test. That means the Lord God planted this Garden to find the nature of man as the testing center.

As the first test for Adam, the Lord God said to him, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die”.

Like this, the Lord God commanded to the man. It is proved to us from the incident of talking between the serpent and woman in her loneliness that the Lord God tested the faith of Eve and the cunningness of the serpent in the testing center called Garden of Eden. Here, we must know that the Lord tested the nature of Eve by handing over to the temptation of Satan. The Lord God was hidden to the eyes of Eve in this test and made her aloof from Adam and performed His test upon Eve. If Adam and Eve would have been moved together, the tempting test would have not happened. Likewise, Lord God handed over Jesus to the temptation of Satan after he was baptized and received the Holy Spirit. If we read Matthew 4:13, it is proved that the Lord God performed the temptation towards the Lord Christ through the Satan. Likewise, the Lord God subjected Eve who was in the Garden of Eden for the test of faith. Not only she failed in this test, but also she made her husband to eat the forbidden fruit to make him a partner in her failure. In this context, also, the Lord God gave a test to Adam regarding his spiritual state. Is he going to give prominence to words of Eve? Or will he follow My command? When Eve made Adam to eat the forbidden fruit as the test of the Lord, at this situation also, the Lord God hid Himself from Adam. For this reason, the history of the man and woman proves that the man and woman both were fallen away by Satan in the Garden of Eden.

Dear readers! The reason for the fallen away of the first couple in this way is the attractive teaching of the cunning serpent of the field and the attraction of the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil, instead of the attraction towards the Lord. The Eve yielded to these two attractions.

Even though the serpent was invisible to the man, he was attracted by the woman, who ate the earthly fruit of the knowledge of good and evil, and was in the grip of sin by forgetting the divinity. According to the effect of the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil in the couple, who were fallen in to the grip of sin, they lost the glorified white robes then and there. And also, they knew that they were naked and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves coverings. Here, we must grasp this a temporary solution, because the clothes, ornaments, etc., which are used for covering the nakedness are not permanent.

Dear readers! It may be said that the meaning for the covering here is to cover the nakedness. Who created the thought in them to prepare the coverings? Is the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil! Here, the knowledge of the Lord is not with them, so, they prepared the fig leaves as the coverings by the tree of knowledge of good and evil and wore it.

[] The walking of the Lord in the garden of Eden

“And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the Garden in the cool of the day” ……Genesis 3:8.

“The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters” …….Genesis 1:2.

At first while the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters in this way, He created everything, which we are seeing now. Likewise, after the Lord God formed the Garden of Eden and Adam, He used to walk in the Garden of Eden also.

Dear readers! The Lord God had how much love on the first man Adam; the Lord God had that much love on the nation of the Lord, the Israelites. If I say in one word, the Lord God had abundant love upon the dynasty of Jacob, the Israelites, more than Adam in the Garden of Eden. So, it is written in this way.

“God so loved the world” …… John 3:16.

From this, we know that the love of God had no boundary. The Lord God walked more amidst the Israelites than with Adam and His created creatures in the Garden of Eden. The surprise is that the Lord God did not perform any miracle for Adam in the Garden of Eden. But, the Lord God favored Adam the grasping power when He formed the woman from his rib. That much only, but there is no proof that the Lord God performed the miracles through Adam in the Garden of Eden, but the Lord God performed many miracles through Moses, who was the first leader and the prophet to the divine nation, Israelites. There is no need to write about these miracles. We are aware of them already.

How did God save the Israelites? It is written in the Holy Bible that the Lord God moved as a pillar of cloud in the day and as a pillar of fire in the night. But, there is no proof that the Lord God moved in the Garden of Eden for Adam as a pillar of cloud in the day and as a pillar of fire in the night. It is written,

“They heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the Garden in the cool of the day.” …… Genesis 3:8.

But, there are no proofs that the Lord God was attached to Adam day and night.

Dear readers! In this way, the Lord God, who did not perform any miracle in the matter of Adam, performed many miracles amidst the Israelites after they were selected. We can read about this in Exodus. From here onwards, the Lord was performing the miracles of every kind in the matter of the prophets and was moving amidst them.

Ex:-In the book Daniel, the Lord God moved amidst of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed – Nego in the burning fiery furnace.

Dear readers! God was born amidst the Jews in the form of Christ and performed many miracles. How about now in the period of grace? Is the Lord God moving among us? Let us know about this.

“For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them” ……Matthew 18:20.

According to the words, which the Lord Jesus said, when we are gathered together in the Lord’s name, the spirit of Christ is moving amidst us. If the spirit of Christ is moving, we must grasp that there is a great chance to happen many miracles. But, why is the Lord God, who moved amidst His devotees, walked in the Garden of Eden? The one, who walked in the Garden of Eden, was not the Son of God. The one, who walked in the Garden of Eden, was not the Holy Spirit. The one, who walked in the Garden of Eden, was not the angels of the Lord. The Creator, the Lord God Himself walked in the Garden of Eden.

Dear readers! We already knew that the Lord God did come for His people, but it does not appear that the Lord God came for Adam in the Garden of Eden.

As in Genesis 3:8-9, Adam heard the sound of the Lord, who was talking to another one. But, this Adam was moving fearlessly in the Garden of Eden before he entered in to the sin. The Lord God saw this and went on His way.

But, this time, Adam did enter into the sin and the eyes of them were opened. They knew that they were naked. So, they were ashamed. For this reason, they were afraid and hid themselves behind the trees. Whenever Adam hid behind the trees by hearing the sound of the Lord, the Lord God did not find the couple who were moving fearlessly. A thought entered in the mind of the Lord that where they would have gone? Or, where were they? So, the Lord God called Adam and said to him, where are you?” During previous days, the Lord did not ask Adam, who was moving fearlessly. But, He asked Adam on that day, because he was not seen to Him. But it is written that Adam heard the sound of the Lord in the Garden of Eden. If we think spiritually that with whom the Lord God conversed? We can know clearly one divine secret.

Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light……Genesis 1:3.

This light is the Lord Jesus Christ.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made though Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it” ……John 1:1-5,

From this, we know that the Lord Jesus Christ was before the birth of earth. The Lord Christ performed His action as the light when this creation was created, there after the Lord Christ lived in the Garden of Eden in the form of the tree of Life. As it says in Genesis 3:22 that whoever eats the fruits of the tree of life, he lives forever.

Likewise, we know clearly that whoever partakes in the blood and flesh of the Lord Christ, he also lives, forever. So, the tree of life is fore symbol to Christ. So, the Lord Christ lived in the Garden of Eden in the form of a tree of life.

Dear readers! Here we must grasp that the sound, which Adam heard, was the voice of the Lord, when He was talking to the Lord Jesus Christ, who was in the form of the tree of life. Because,

The Lord Christ said “I and My Father are one”. …. John 10:30. So, the Lord God was talking with Christ, who was in the form of a tree of life in the cool of the day about His deeds. Amen.

[] Where are you?

Then the Lord God called to Adam and said to him, “Where are you?” …….Genesis 3:9.

Dear readers! One question may arise in us, that why God is asking this question when He knows everything? Even in our modern world, the judge in the court house gives a chance to speak for the accused when investigating the crime. If the accused accepts his crime in this investigation, the punishment will be less. Suppose, if the accused did not accept his crime then the punishment will be more. We already know these things.

But, the Lord God, who knew that where Adam was and what crime he did, asked Adam to know that what he will tell, that means the Lord God tested Adam whether he will accept or not. Here, another doubt may arise in us that does not the Lord God know that whether Adam will accept or not. Because the Lord God is Almighty, He knows everything. But, Adam became the wise man to know good and evil by eating the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

By this reason, the Lord God, who grasped that Adam had the knowledge of good and evil, called Adam and said to him, “Where are you?”

In this a great secret is hidden.

As long as the man lived with the Lord God, he was in the inheritance of the Lord. After he violated the command of the Lord, the first man forgot the state in which he was! In which way Lord God and he lived that also he forgot and he got into fear instead of getting in to the fellowship with the Lord. Thereafter, he came to know of his nakedness, which he already had, and became the common man, and covered their nakedness with the leaves of fig tree, and took shelter behind it.

So, the Lord God called Adam and said to him, “Where are you?” Adam was himself responsible for the sin he committed. The one who knew the command of the Lord and the secrets of the Spirit of the Lord was Adam. The one, who knew the secrets in the construction of the creation, was Adam. Adam, who knew the construction of the woman from his rib as in Genesis 2:21-22 in his spiritual state, lost the aroma in the fellowship of the Lord. So, the Lord God called Adam and said to him, “Where are you? The meaning in this is, till yesterday you are with Me, and I am with you, but now, where are you? The answer, which Adam gave to the Lord, is astonishing one. Adam, who was formed as the image of the Lord with handsome figure without any fear, said to the Lord, “I heard Your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid myself” …… Genesis 3:10.

Dear readers! How many times Adam heard the voice of the Lord? How many times he would have spent time with the Lord God, how many times he would have moved together with Lord? Adam forgot all these on this day and said, “I heard Your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid myself”.

How much regretful it is!

Is it proper for Adam, who lost the fellowship of the Lord, his inheritance, holy life and union with the Lord in the Garden of Eden, to hide himself as a coward? In this way, Adam informed the Lord God about his downfall, but did not tell the Lord about his sin, which he did already.

Dear readers! Adam said before the Lord, “I am naked”. Adam, who said that I was naked, is the child of the Lord. Today, the child of Christ, who hides before the world, does not accept Christ openly.

Dear readers! According to the above answer, Adam, who was with the Lord till now, “Where are you by eating fruit of the forbidden tree?” Where Adam was! He was hidden behind the tree, because he was afraid. That means he was entangled in the grip of Satan. So, he was afraid to come before the Lord as the culprit. Not only that, there is no obstacle between Adam and the Lord before this. But, now Adam kept the tree between the Lord and him, and answered the Lord. In this way, one veil was formed between the man and the Lord. Thereafter, the Lord God performed His deeds secretly behind the veil as the Lord of Israel. For this reason, the main prophets, high priests, etc., only could see the Lord. The remaining people could not see the Lord directly. So, it is to say that a veil was formed between the Lord and man, but, we cannot forget that the Lord Christ stood between the Lord and man by removing the veil through the His death and resurrection. Here we must grasp one thing that the Lord God investigated Cain in Genesis 4:9 like above.

Likewise, the Lord investigates every man’s sin and trespasses. So ahead of the Lord, it is good for us to accept our sins and trespasses before Him”. Amen.

[]Fear

“I heard Your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid myself” ……Genesis 3:10.

Dear readers! Here, the quality of fear can be noticed. Before this incident, when the Lord God was speaking to Adam, the fear was absent. Also, there was no fear in Eve. Even the serpent had no fear. When Adam ate the forbidden fruit, the quality of the fear entered in the human beings and in the animals.

Dear readers! This fear is started from the Garden of Eden and followed each and every human being, creatures, etc., till today. But, this fear is not formed from the birth of man. When the Lord God created the man, He did not create him as the fearful. That means the Lord God did not create him as the coward.

It is written,

“But, the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.” …. Revelation 21:8.

If Adam was formed with the qualities of fear and cowardice, the Lord God wouldn’t have kept him in the Garden of Eden. The reason for the cowardice is the fear. This fear performs its action in different methods from one creature to another and one man to another. The foundation to this fear is the fruit of tree of knowledge of good and evil amidst the Garden of Eden. The man, who ate this fruit along with his wife, did not have courage to speak before the Lord. Immediately after eating the fruit of the forbidden tree the quality of the fear entered in the man and woman. In this way, the fear was placed in the animals, birds, fishes, etc., each and every one in the creation through the violation of the command of the Lord by the first couple. The man lost his freedom in this vast universe. And the man became a coward. And, the man lost his worthiness to stand before the Lord.

Dear readers! The Lord God said to the man, who yielded to the quality of fear, as in Psalms 125:1 that you add this quality of fear to the devotion and keep it in the Lord.

“Blessed is everyone who fears the Lord who walks in His ways” …. Psalms 128:1.

From this, we must fear the Lord only. But, the Lord said that you should not be afraid of any one or in any matter, except to the Lord.

Dear readers! We are commonly seen in the Holy Bible and also in the neighbors that the human beings are afraid in every matter. Likewise, in the matter of John, the Lord, who appeared in the vision of John, said,

“Do not be afraid?” Revelation 1:17.

So, here we must grasp that the Lord did not create the quality of fear in the man. The quality of fear will not go away Just because we grasped this matter. But, just as it is said in Psalms, the one, who fought with the Satan by keeping fear in the Lord, gets the victory over the Satan; he can become heir to the kingdom of the Lord. Amen.

[] Who told you that you were naked?

And He said, “Who told you that you were naked?” …. Genesis 3:11.

Dear readers! God knows everything then why did He ask that question to Adam? The breath of life, which was blown in man by the Lord, had the power of knowledge to know the deeds that happened and the future. So, the Lord God consecrated the spirit, which had the capacity to know the birth secret of a woman, who came out from the rib and flesh by the Lord, in man. So, the prime history of the creation of human being explains to us that the man had the power which was equal to the power of the Lord. The Lord God, who knows the inner most thoughts of the Lucifer, the musician, who had the privilege of main position in every matter in His proximity and who was the beloved one among His angels investigated the future of the man, who was created by Him, and put one command before the man. The Lord God tested Adam through this command and cursed Him to weaken his life span and the power of his spirit. Thus, the man became a worldly man.

If man remains the same in the proximity of the Lord, the Garden of Eden, he was in useless state without off spring. So, the Lord God had not desired in man that he should not have off -spring. So, the Lord God leaves His hand to tempt Adam through the Satan. At first, the Lord God gave the authority to Adam to rule over this creation, except the five elements. The Lord God kept the five elements in His control. The Lord God felt that if the five elements are under the control of man, he will not be submissive to Him. So, the Lord kept the five elements in His control. The Lord God had the thought that if He created the man without death as the stable one on the earth, the man forgets Him.

So, He gave one command in the form of a fruit to keep the man in His control through the deed of death.

Besides, is it wrong to eat such fruit?

This question may arise in us. It is wrong, because God the Creator is the father for the cause of the birth of human beings on the earth. Is it not the sin to go against the words of the father? It is proved from this incident that the Lord God followed this doctrine only. Just as the son, who goes against the father, loses his grace, in the same way, Adam, who violated the command of the Lord, lost the grace form the Father, the Lord God. Not only Adam lost the parental affection from the Lord, but also he lost the divine proximity i.e., the Garden of Eden. And he was subjected to the punishment of death, natural calamities, etc.

Dear readers! Now, we came to the effort in which we must think spiritually. While the serpent, which was surrounded the tree, spoke to the woman, and he did not tell that you were naked, because the Satan was naked. So, he moves in the darkness, because he pertains to the dark. He cannot come to the light. He cannot be adjusted to the light. So, the serpent did not utter about the first couple that you were naked.

Here, we must have attention towards the words of the Lord to Adam, “That who told you that you were naked?

The serpent did not tell that you were naked.

The Eve also did not converse to Adam about their nakedness.

Dear readers! As along as Adam became a wise man by eating the fruit of knowledge of good and evil, he could not grasp that he had the glorified white robes. That means he lived as an infant. To remember the life style of Adam to present day’s human beings, the infants are born with nakedness. From the birth to the 4th year, the child, born from the womb does not know that he/she is naked. We are seeing commonly that our children are also moving naked before us. Thereafter, we are adorning them with frocks, shirts, pants etc., this is common matter. Even though the parents are silent by seeing the nakedness of our children, it is common that our neighbors calling our children and says, “Oh! Young child put on some cloths.”

But the Satan, who spoke through the serpent, did not teach about their nakedness to them.

Dear readers! Thus, who told Adam that you were naked?

The answer to this is written in the second part of Genesis 3:11. “Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you that you should not eat?” …. Genesis 3:11.

The Lord God asked this question to Adam.

What did the Lord God ask?

And He said, “Who told you that you were naked?” Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you that you should not eat?……Genesis 3:11.

From this, we must grasp that the one, who made Adam and Eve to know their nakedness, was the tree of knowledge of good and evil, which was forbidden to eat by the Lord. Amen.

[] Never ending punishments

Which punishments and to whom did the Lord God give them? We can know about this clearly from Genesis 3:12-19. Even though it appears that the Lord God punished Adam, Eve, serpent, and earth, but these punishments are suffering human race as a shade from generation to the generation. Let us understand the severity and pain of these punishments given by God.

Then the man said, “The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I ate” …. Genesis 3:12.

According to this verse Adam knew clearly about the fruit, from where Eve had taken. And also, he knows about the fruit clearly that was forbidden by the Lord. But, if the Lord asked Adam and said, “Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you that you should not eat?” Adam put accuse upon Eve. But, Adam knew clearly that the fruits given to him were from forbidden tree. So, he said, “The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I ate”. Here by Saying, “Of the tree”, we must grasp that the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. If he ate unknowingly, it is to be compromised, “Alas! He did not know, because, he was innocent”. But, Adam did the sin knowingly. Adam did the sin without speaking a single word to Eve about the fruit, when he was passionate to the beauty of Eve, because Eve ate the forbidden fruit firstly and lost her glorified white robes, and came near Adam by covering her secret beauty with her hair as in Corinthians 11:15.

Till now, Adam was with glorified white robes. Till now, Adam saw the woman, who covered by the glorified white robes. Now, the same woman lost her glorified white robes and came to Adam by covering her secret parts with her hair. Adam saw the beauty of the woman firstly, so he was passionate towards her. So, even though the fruit, which she gave, was forbidden by the Lord God, he ate. For this reason, the Lord God said in Genesis 2:24 in this way.

“Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh” ……Genesis 2:24.

Because the beauty of the woman made Adam to eat the fruit of the tree without single word, even he knew that this fruit was forbidden by the Lord. In this connection, we must recognize that how much powerful this beauty.

Dear readers! Here, it is proved that Adam sinned. Still the Lord investigated the second person Eve.

And the Lord said to the woman, “What is this you have done? And the woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate” …….Genesis 3:13.

According to this verse, when the Lord said to the woman, “What is this you have done? The woman did not accept the sin, which happened through her by eating the forbidden fruit of the Lord, like Adam and said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate”. In this way, the woman, Eve also showed her crime upon the serpent. But, if we read from Genesis 3:1 to the Genesis 3:6 we know the desired words of the serpent with Eve about the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden; but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the Garden, God has said, “You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die” ……Genesis 3:2-3.

Not only she took of its fruits and ate knowingly, but also she made Adam to eat. From this, it is proved that the woman also sinned.

Dear readers! When the Lord said to the woman, “What is this you have done?” The woman was showed her crime upon the serpent. But, the Lord God did not investigate the beast of the field. The serpent, it is written in Genesis 3:14-15 that the Lord punished the serpent directly. Why did the Lord God not investigate the serpent? Let us know about this matter in this connection. We can read in Genesis 2:7 that the Lord God gave His spirit to Adam. A part of the spirit, which the Lord God given to Adam, Eve was made from him. But, the Lord God did not favor His spirit to any beasts, birds, etc., which was on the earth. Besides, Adam and Eve had become wise to know good and evil by eating the forbidden fruit of the Lord. The Lord God investigated only Adam and gave punishments.

Dear readers! Let us know which punishments and to whom, did the Lord God had given here.

The first punishment which the Lord God gave to the serpent – So, the Lord God said to the serpent. “Because you have done this, you are cursed more than all cattle, and more than every beast of the field; on your belly, you shall go, and you shall eat the dust all the days of your life. And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; He shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heal” ……Genesis 3:14-15.

Dear readers! According to this verse, the serpent had the wings and legs before the curse. After the curse, the serpent lost his wings and legs and we are seeing now that the serpent is crawling on its belly. But, just the Lord God cursed the serpent; it must eat the dust all the days of its life!

But, we are seeing that the serpents are living by eating the small animals. We have the need to know that how it happened? Before the curse, we know that the food for the serpent was not the dust. But, the serpent ate different kinds of food materials according to the determination of the Lord. But, after the curse of the Lord, even though all the serpents are eating different kinds of food, the dust is mixed in the main food in every serpent.

Dear readers! Totally, all the race of the serpents lives in the dust. They eat the dust or not, their life, the dwelling place, each and everything are in the dust only. That means the race of serpents, which lived in branches of the great trees freely is living in the dust hills, the crakes of the stones, the burrows of the ground, etc.

Is it not the result of the curse from the Lord God?

The second punishment which the Lord God gave to the woman: – To the woman He said: “I will greatly multiply your sorrow and your conception; in pain you shall bring forth children; your desire shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you” ……Genesis 3:16.

Dear readers! Each and every woman has the experience of this punishment in their life, except the barren woman. Even though, the labor pains are terrible, we cannot forget that she gave birth to the child. We are commonly heard that the woman, who gave birth to child just now, says that I will never conceive again and I do not want children again. But, we are commonly seeing that the same woman will conceive again after some months. The reason for this is the curse which the Lord God gave to the woman.

“Your desire shall be for your husband”.

But, the Lord said to the woman, “He shall rule over you”.

It is not the meaning in this that the woman is a kingdom, he rules her according to his will. So, he shall not do anything to the woman according to his will. But, he shall rule over the woman. In which way, shall he rule? In which way, the Christ becomes the head to the Church, in the same way man becomes the head to the woman. As Christ tortured the church? Or does the Christ love the church? Determine yourself. The meaning in this is he shall rule the woman in this way.

Dear readers! The Lord God created the enmity between the seed of serpent and the seed of woman. We are commonly seeing that it is happening even today also according to the words.

The third punishment which the Lord God gave to the man – Then to Adam He said, “Because you have heeded the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree of which I commanded you, saying, ‘You shall not eat of it’: Cursed is the ground for your sake; in toil you shall eat of it all the days of your life. Both thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you, and you shall eat the herb of the field. In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for dust you are, and to dust you shall return” …. Genesis 3:17-19.

Dear readers! Before Adam was cursed, we must observe that the earth was cursed in the third punishment. By this reason only, the earth does not give the fertility to the crop now comparatively the earth gave the fertility to the Garden of Eden. The man toils days together to get the crop. But, we are commonly seeing that the different kinds of thistles and thorns are growing along with the crop and the farmer wrests thistles and thorns.

The Lord, who cursed the earth in this way, said “you shall eat of it all the days of your life in toil”.

Lastly He said, “For dust you are, and to dust you shall return”. The proof for this is the burial programs, which are held in these days. The Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground. So, the body of man mixes in the dust lastly.

But, the Ecclesiasts says that the spirit, which kept in the man, will return to God who gave it.

Dear readers! In this way, the Lord God punished. There is a peculiarity in these punishments. That is, even though this fault occurred in the Garden of Eden, we are experiencing these punishments from generations to generations. Amen.

[] The mothers in our life

“And Adam called his wife’s name Eve, because she was the mother of all living” …….Genesis 3:20.

Dear reader! There is one specialty in our life which no creature is having in this world. The mother of any creature in the creation is one only. In the matter of the race of birds, one bird keeps her egg in another nest. In this connection, the bird of hatches the eggs is another one. Ex: – cuckoo. The bird cuckoo keeps her eggs in the nest of crow and runs away. But the crow hatches out the eggs of the cuckoo as her eggs and fed the young cuckoo as her child. Likewise, we are also hatch out the egg of duck under the hen. The surprise is the young bird that is hatched out, grows up and tries to reach its own race without any gratitude. In reality, only one mother who brought us up appears to us. But, if we think in spiritual view, there are seven mothers to us according to the Scripture. Let us know about them.

1. Earth: – The earth is the mother to the first man. Genesis 3:19, “For dust you are, and to dust you shall return” …. Genesis 3:19.

So, the earth is the mother of the first man Adam. We know clearly that the earth the mother fed the first man Adam with her produce and gave pleasant atmosphere.

2. Eve: – “And Adam called his wife’s name Eve, because she was the mother of all living.” ……Genesis 3:20.

3. Sarah & Virgin Mary: – Sarah was the wife of a divine faithful one Abraham. Abraham is the father of faith. So, she was the mother to faithful nation. Each and every one, who was in divine faith, was the son of Sarah and Abraham. Likewise, the mother Mary is the mother to everyone, who believes in the Lord Christ. For this, The Lord Jesus directly and practically handed His mother to His disciple on the Cross, said, “Behold your mother!” By saying, “Behold your mother!” She stood as the mother to everyone, who are living as Christian by accepting Christ as the Lord. There is no church in this world without uttering the name of Mother of Jesus in their sermons. The reason is,

“For He has regarded the lowly state of His maidservant; on behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed” …. Luke1:48.

So, all generations call her as blessed one among the women.

4. Babylon: – “And on her forehead, a name was written: Mystery, Babylon the great, the mother of harlots and of the abominations of the earth” ………Revelation 17:5.

The father of lie is Satan. The mother to the abominable deeds, unholy deeds, and unjust is the Babylon. The mother of the unholy church is the Babylon. The food and drinks of this mother is the body and blood of the martyrs of Christ. It is written in Revelation 17:6 that the Babylon drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus.

5. Rebekah: – And they blessed Rebekah and said to her: “Our sister, may you become the mother of thousands of ten thousand; and may your descendants possess the gates of those who hate them”. …Genesis 24:60.

Jacob, who born through this womb, fought with God and became fore father to 12 tribes of nation, Israelites. The mother, who gave birth to such man, was arranged as the mother to the Israelites.

6. The Earthly Jerusalem: – “Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children” …….Galatians 4:25.

This is our church in which we are. In New Testament, the mother Mary gave birth to the Son of God. We, as the people of today’s Era, have the fortune to worship true God through the Son who was born through her. The Lord Jesus formed the church as His bride. This is our mother. The surprise fact is that the church, the bride is the wife of Christ spiritually. Now, even though the church, in which we are, has the name, the earthly Jerusalem, this is the church formed by Christ and is the fellowship of Christians. So, it is called as the church of Christ. From this, the Christ is the head of the church. This church became the bride to the Lord Christ. Now, the head to the woman is man. The head of the church is the Christ. The head of the Christ is the Lord God. The sixth mother is the earthly Jerusalem.

7. The heavenly Jerusalem: – “But the Jerusalem above is free, which is the mother of us all” …….Galatians 4:26.

“This heavenly Jerusalem, the holy city coming down out of heaven from God prepared as a bride adorned for her husband”. ………Revelation 21:2.

“Come, I will show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife” ……Revelation 21:9.

[] The tunics of skin

“Also for Adam and his wife the Lord God made tunics of skin, and clothed them” ……Genesis 3:21.

Dear readers! The Lord God clothed Adam and Eve with glorified white robes and kept them in the Garden of Eden as the light of the garden. But, Adam and Eve ate the fruit of knowledge of good and evil which the Lord commanded the man not to eat and had gone against to the Lord. In this connection, the privilege, which the Lord God favored them, was lost. In this place, the knowledge of good and evil was joined with human beings. Is the knowledge of good and evil alone sufficient without the divine help? If we think a little, we will understand that it is not sufficient.

Dear readers! The first and foremost work, which Adam and Eve did after they achieved the knowledge of good and evil, sewed leaves together. Here, we must grasp that the Lord God gave this knowledge of sewing through the fruit of knowledge of good and evil. Today, the man is preparing different garments with different kinds of fashions. It we keep the types of garment, which was prepared from Adam till today, in the exhibition, we can grasp that our life period is insufficient to see them. In this way, the Lord God gave the knowledge to the man to prepare surprising articles through the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil. So, we see the surprising articles in our life. But, the base for this knowledge is the Lord God given fruit only.

Dear readers! These articles are working in two ways as the name of the tree.

Ex: – The knife: – It is used in two folds either to cut the vegetables or to kill the man.

Pen: – It is also use in two folds to write either good or the evil. In this way, there is good and evil in every article.

Dear readers! The Lord God cursed Adam and Eve, who violated against His command, and made the tunics of skin and clothed them before they were driven out from the Garden of Eden. But, it is appearing to us that the Lord God showed compassion towards them even thought, the Lord God drove them out from the Garden of Eden. Here, let us know why the Lord God gave the tunics of skin and why He drove them out? The Lord God is the image of love. So, He made the tunics of skin and gave to the first couple. The final meaning in this is, the Lord said as the example to us again, “I will favor the salvation”. That means, the Lord God said to us that He will incarnate in the form of human being and favour us with the glorified white robes as Christ. So, the Lord God incarnated in this world in the form of Christ and favored the glorified white robe as the Lord Christ.

“For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus”. …. Galatians 3:27-28.

The Lord made the tunics of skin and clothed them in the Garden of Eden as a symbol to future salvation which will bring glorified white robe as the Lord Christ.

Dear readers! After Adam and Eve violated the command of the Lord, the Lord God thought that they were unworthy to live in the Garden of Eden. So, He sent them out of the Garden of Eden. But, the same Lord said as in Revelation 2:7 that I will the fruits of tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God. That means, the Lord God promised us, that He will give the entry in the Garden to Eden, which is in the paradise, to the one, who over comes the world, worldly deeds, Satan and his deeds. That day, we will become holy like Adam and Eve, same as before the violation in the Garden, that day the Lord desired to live us in the Garden of Eden and gave us the chance to enter in it again. This is called as the small heaven named paradise.

The heaven is the place, in which the Lord God lives. The small heaven, namely the Paradise, is the place before the entry in the Heaven for the holy people. In the connection of the penance of the cross, the Lord Christ gave the entry in the Garden of Eden to the thief on right side. That means he gave the entry in the Paradise. That means He gave the chance for the thief to eat the fruits of the tree of life.

Dear readers! Now we need to know that how the Lord God prepared the tunics of skin in the Garden of Eden. Not only that, we have the need to know that from which animal was the Lord killed and prepared the tunics of the skin?

“He indeed was foreordained before the foundation of the world” ……1 Peter 1:20.

In this way, the Lord Jesus Christ was foreordained as the light by the Spirit of the Lord in Genesis 1:3. This light divided everything from the darkness. Thereafter, the Lord Jesus Christ performed His deeds in the Garden of Eden as the tree of life. Thereafter, in the matter of Adam and Eve, the Lord Jesus Christ appeared as the lamb as the symbol that He will incarnate in this world to redeem us from our sins. Just as Abraham sacrificed the lamb instead of his son Isaac, in the same way the Lord Jesus Christ appeared in the Garden of Eden as the Lamb and was sacrificed by the Lord. And the Lord God made the tunics of skin through Lambs skin, and clothed them.

“Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom, and strength and honor and glory and blessing” …. Revelation 5:12.

In this way, the Lord Jesus Christ was fore ordained before the formation of this world and was sacrificed in the matter of Adam and Eve, and Eve and favored the tunics of skin as the salvation armor. Thereafter, the Lord Jesus Christ was born in the New Testament and sacrificed for our sins to created permanent salvation.

From this we must grasp that the tunics of skin are the symbol for the permanent salvation of Jesus. Amen.

[] Precautionary measures from God

“ Then the Lord God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of Us, to know good and evil. And now, lest he put out his hand and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever”- therefore the Lord God sent him out of the Garden of Eden to till the ground from which he was taken. So, He drove out the man; and He placed cherubim at the east of the Garden of Eden, and a planning sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree life” .......Genesis 3:22-24.

Dear readers! Here we can observe that the Lord God Himself took precautionary measures in the matter of man because the man had become like the Lord to know good and evil. If the Satan added with Adam and provoke him to eat the fruit of tree of life and live forever as sinners without repentance, so the Lord God, who grasped this took precautionary measures.

This question is between the everlasting life and death.

But, the Lord sent them out from the Garden of Eden before their knowledge comes on the fruit of the tree of life.

And He placed cherubim at the east of the Garden of Eden, so that the man could not enter in it again.

Not only that, suppose, if man crossed the cherubim, he placed a flaming sword which turned every way to guard the way to the tree of life.

In this way, the Lord God cared about the Lord Christ, who was in the form of the tree of life.

In which way, the Lord God cared in the matter of Christ, in the same way, we also must be careful in the matter of Satan, and trust in the Lord Christ to be joined in the proximity of the Lord again. Amen.

  • * How could Adam, who could see the creation of woman in his sleep, not find the sin of the woman?

Then the rib which the Lord God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man. And Adam said: “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man” …….Genesis 2:22-23.

“But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the Garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.’” And the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die”. For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate…….Genesis 3:3-6.

Dear readers! In the Holy Bible, there is a great secret hidden in the creation woman which is impossible to grasp. That means, when the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept. And he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place, and he made into a woman, when He brought her to the man, Adam who woke up from the sleep said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man”. If the man explained clearly about the deed that happened in unconscious state, here, we must imagine how great is the power of the breath of life, which was kept in the man by the Lord.

When the woman, who heard the words of serpent and ate the fruits of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, gave the fruits to the man, who had such great powerful breath of life, why could he not grasp the details of the fruit that was given to him?

What happened to the effect of the breath of life in Adam, who knew the construction of Eve, could not recognize the fault that was done by the her and ate the fruit without any fear or hesitation?

Let us know about this now.

In that critical juncture, the Lord’s power, which was in the man, was hidden. Even though, Adam was filled with Lord’s breath of life and was the child of the Lord, there is a plan to spread the human race in this world through the woman. The promise about this plan is written in Genesis 1:28.

“Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it” …. Genesis 1:28.

There was a promise, so we must grasp that the effect of the powerful breath of life, which was in Adam, was curtailed and hidden.

How? The Lord Jesus Christ also was the Son of God like Adam. He was powerful more than Adam and did not belong to this world. He, who was reckoning as the son of Lord, did many miracles and signs, healed the sick, cured the handicapped and raised the dead to life, and proved the Lord’s glory on the earth. He could notice the bleeding woman touch among huge crowd as could feel the passing of His power. It so happened to such powerful Lord Christ that He was seized, whipped and scourged by the people, and was subjected to the unjust judgment, and was punished to be nailed on the cross and died. Who caused this? Is it Satan or Lord God? Of course, we all know that it is Lord God.

Likewise, Adam could not grasp the deed which the woman did. Just as Jesus was feeble in His matter, in the same way Adam also lost his spiritual power and became a slave of the woman and sinned. Likewise, the Lord Jesus Himself lowered before the Lord God and fought with the powers of the world as an ordinary man, died and raised. Again, He appeared to His children as the light and will come like a king in His second coming.

Dear readers! Likewise, if we read the history of Job, we can read that the Lord God handed over Job to the Satan. In the same way, the Lord God also handed over even the Lord Christ to the Satan. Adam, who lost the power of spiritual grasping, could not know grasp the woman’s fault. So, Adam who yielded to the temptation lost everything of him. But, Job, who did not yield to the temptation, gained more than what he lost. The Lord Jesus Christ, who did not yield to the temptation, gained the throne of the Lord God and will come to judge us again in His second coming.

Not only that, the Lord God will hand over each and every one to the Satan. The one, who over comes the temptation, the Lord Christ favors the great blessings.

[] Actions of forbidden fruit

Dear readers! Are you grasping this at any time?

The first couple, who violated Lord’s commandment by the effect of the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, which was admired by the Satan through the serpent, were made as the worldly persons by being separated from the spiritual life. After this, in which forms, is the tree of knowledge of good and evil performing its action from those days to these days? The reason for not grasping this is due to the effect of the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil only.

Even though the name of the fruit is not mentioned in the Holy Bible, we have to understand its effect and its name from the qualities of the fruit according to the context. Here, we must grasp the first words, which Satan uttered through the serpent, and he said to the woman “Has God indeed said, “You shall not eat of every tree of the Garden?” If the woman, who was the creation of the Lord, was fascinated by the sweet and aromatic words of the serpent, what happened to the divinity which was in her?

Today the woman the house wife is suspecting her husband’s behavior, ways, and nature according to the time and connection, and stays alert towards him. If so, why did the first woman of the divine creation did not have such knowledge? If we think about this, it is so surprising. We must feel naturally in the matter of today’s woman, who is fully indulged in worldly affair and sin, could not have the divinity completely. Not only the woman, but the man also could not have the divinity completely. That means there is none, who had the divinity completely.

Here onwards, let us know from the Holy Bible that the Lord God created the decline stage to the creation by the fruit, which the first couple ate. Because of eating the fruit, the earth quake is formed. The eruption of volcano, the wiped out the creation by the floods, solar eclipse, hot winds, sun stroke, typhoons, chill, cold, hail storm, polluted atmosphere, etc ways, the nature is against to the man. Along with these the life span of man is diminished from the hundreds. So, we lost our life within the multiples of tens. Now these days, there is no particular determined time for the life span. And there is no specified time for the death. The life span plays its role on the earth that the death will happen on any day, any hour, and any moment. The reason for this is the effect of the fruit only.

Let it pass, suppose we forbid the fruit and get rid of it, we have already declined to such a stage that we are bound to live basing on the fruit from the birth until the death. The nature and the man are against each other by this fruit only. The man and the divine creation are against each other. That means, wild animals like cheetah, leopard, lion , bear, wolf, etc., wild beasts like elephant, bison, rhinoceros, etc., all cattle, birds, serpents, scorpion, centipede, etc., all these are against to the man and they harms the man to bring death. The man hunt, kill and eat finally some of them, is also the result of the fruit only.

Like this, the fruit created against to the Lord God, made the man to forget the divinity completely. If we read Romans 1:18-31, we know the down fall of the man the effect of the fruit. But, the effect of this fruit did not leave the man completely. So, the Lord God, who gave the command not to eat, took the fault of the forbidden fruit on His behalf and incarnated Himself in this world as the medicine.

“Most assuredly, I say to you he who hears my word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life” ……John 5:24.

“Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink in indeed” ……John 6:54-55.

“And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up” …….John 3:14

Luke 19:10, “For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost”.

Thus, the Lord God came to this world in the form of the Lord Jesus Christ to nullify the effect of the fruit, which the first couple ate by the Satan.

While the Son of the Lord God, Jesus Christ, who fulfilled in this way, showing the effect of the fruit on His own flesh as the example to us. He experienced the sorrow, which we ought to the experienced. He experienced the punishment, which we ought to be experienced. He died, which we ought to die for our sake. Thus, He proved that the fruit, which the Lord God forbidden, is the cause of death. Whoever believes the Lord Christ and follows in His path, even if he dies, will rise from death as an example. The Lord Jesus rose from death and appeared to His disciples.

Dear readers! The fruits, which He planted in the Garden of Eden, are before us. The fruit, which the Lord God forbidden to eat is also amongst us, but the name of this fruit, is hidden. If you say, is it not so? How we are born from the first couple? According to the curse of the Lord in those days, the man toils until the sweat of his face to plough the earth now also. According to the curse of the Lord the woman have the labor pains. According to the curse of the Lord, she gives birth to the children. The Serpent, which was cursed in those days, lost some main parts, i.e. legs and wings, and lives in the dust hills and crawls on its belly. Today the tree of life, which the Lord God planted amidst the Garden of Eden, is living in the house of every believer among the people in the form of the Gospel. If these are, why does the tree of knowledge of good and evil not exist which the Lord God commanded that you shall not eat of it? This also exists, but the name of the tree of knowledge of good and evil is hidden.

So, this secret is great one from those days to the end of these days, the secret of the tree of knowledge of good and evil is working in every man’s worldly life in both ways i.e. secretly and openly. The man, who merged with the nature through this deed, is closer to the creation and aloof from the Almighty. The man, who aloof from the Almighty the Lord God, merged in the creation, and changed the knowledge of the creation and its deeds to the knowledge of science; and he himself is spoiling his spiritual life. For this reason, the fury of the Lord God went out and created the calamities, hail storms, earth quakes, etc., natural misfortunes.

The first man, Adam lost the fertility of the earth and the crop from that fertility, which the Lord God favored us. Thus, the man is experiencing the artificial fertilized crop that is harmful to the health. With this sickness, his life span is reduced more than the life span, which the Lord God gave to Him. For this reason, the body of the man is debilitated and is subjected to the untimely deaths. Thus, even though the effect of fruit, which the Lord God forbidden to the man, is whatever may be, the abominable deed which the first couple did by eating the forbidden fruit is the reason for the reduced life span, the calamities of the nature, and the existence of the body.

Dear readers! Our ancestors experienced the fruits of the earth which was from the natural fertility. And also, they lived on the earth for long times. There were so many people, who lived between one hundred twenty-five years to one hundred fifty years in our ancestors. This is the effect of the fruit from the natural fertility, which the Lord God favored. And also, they lived without sickness in any of their parts of the body, white hair, decayed teeth, the wrinkled skin, loss of vision, loss of hearing, joint problems, etc., until their death. If I say in one word, they experienced the complete health which the Lord God favored to us. If we think about ourselves or our children, who are living in today’s era, they are subjected to the weakness in the body i.e., the loss of vision, headache, toothache, caries of teeth, etc. The reason for this is the artificial crops and their products. Now a day, everything is artificial. The crop is artificial; the fruits and milk are also artificial. The cooking methods are also artificial. Now a day, the man is using the gas and electric stoves, instead of wood and charcoal. In these days, the man is using the vehicles for traveling. It is rare to go anywhere by walk. The vehicles, which are used for traveling, are many, so the atmosphere is also polluted. Along with them, the impure material is mingled in the oil, and the cool drinks. These all are the implements for the reduced life span of the man.

The surprise is, the history of human beings tells us that the man lived hundreds of years without knowing the preparation and usage of the cigarettes, alcohol, black powder, etc. After knowing the preparation and usage of these materials, man is subjected to the misfortunes i.e. diabetes, hyper tension, cancer, heart strokes, etc.

Dear readers! There were no misfortunes like the above in Adam and His sons. Abraham, who was devotional fear in the Lord, had long life through his faith and made his life-span, which the Lord given to him, fruitful. From this, Abraham became the father of faith, but he did not become the father of the bhang or drunkard. Likewise, Isaac, the son of Abraham desired the meat, but not the alcoholic drinks. All of them experienced the fruit of the promise of the Lord in their life and their history is vivid to us. If we, as the race of present Era, are not in a position to live at least 100 years. The reason for this is not the Lord and the trespasses and sins done by Adam and Eve. But, we must grasp that the reason for this is the one, who thinks the divine knowledge is the mad by neglecting the Lord.

From this, the David explains in Psalms 90:3, and said, “You turn man to destruction, and say, “Return, O children of men.” According to the verse written by the Musician David in Psalms 90:3, the children of men i.e. the human beings must go near the Lord God again.

It is binding for everyone.

But, there is a method for the human beings to return.

The man must return with the divine knowledge by utilizing the life span given to him by the Lord God. And also, man must return as the newly born infant in obedience, righteousness and purity by leaving the knowledge of the tree of good and evil. The Lord Jesus Christ also said about this in His teachings, said,

“Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it” …. Mark 10:15.

Thus, the Lord God wants the knowledge of little child from us. The thief on the cross behaved with this knowledge in the proximity of the Lord. The queen Esther also did pray with this knowledge along with her maid servants, and made the Jews her nation to relieve from the clutches of death.

So, we must return with the knowledge of little child by leaving the knowledge of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Amen.

[] God punished Earth! Satan walked free!

Dear readers! It is written in Genesis 3:1-20 about the entry of the sin and the curses which the Lord God gave to the Serpent, Eve, Adam and earth clearly. But, the Lord God punished the serpent, because the serpent made Eve to violate the divine command by telling a lie and by deceiving her. So, the punishment, which the Lord God gave to the Serpent, is justifiable. Thereafter, the Lord punished Eve, because Eve should not have violated the command of the Lord whoever forced her. But, she was deluded the words of Satan through the Serpent and violated the divine command and ate the forbidden fruit of the Lord. This punishment is also justifiable. Thereafter, the Lord God punished Adam, because he ate the forbidden fruit of the Lord by yielding to the attraction of the beauty of Eve. Thus, this punishment is also justifiable.

Dear readers! There after The Lord God punished the earth. Let us know it is justifiable or not. Why did the Lord God punish the earth? But, The Satan made Eve to violate the divine command through the serpent. But, why did the Lord God not punish the Satan? We see through these verses; the Lord God looks as though He is partial to the Satan and enemy to the earth. Let us know how far it is justifiable.

Dear readers! The reason “The Lord God did not punish the Satan” is, He gave the chance to the Satan to enter in the Garden of Eden. It means the Lord God Himself created a work to the Satan to tempt them. So, The Lord God did not punish the Satan, because the Garden of Eden is holy one. There is no place for unholy things in the Garden of Eden. So, The Lord God drove out the unholy Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden. But, how did it happen that an unholy Satan gets entry in the holy Garden of Eden? Here, we are bound to accept that the Lord God would have given the chance to the Satan. If not, there was no chance. Here, let us know through the example. In the history of Job, the Satan came to the proximity of the Lord from going to and fro on the earth, and from walking back and forth on it. But, The Lord God mentioned about Job to the Satan. Then Satan answered the Lord and said, “Does Job fear God for nothing?” Have You not made a hedge around him, around his house hold, and around all that he has on every side? You have blessed the work of his hands, and his possessions have increased in the land. But now, stretch out your hand and touch all that he has, and he will surely curse You to Your face!

So, the Lord said to Satan, “Behold, all that he has is in your power; only do not lay a hand on his person”.

In this way, the Lord God handed Job to the Satan;

Likewise, The Lord God gave second chance to the Satan in the matter of Job by handing the body of him, except his life. But, here Job did not yield to the Satan. He gets victory over the temptation. Likewise, the Satan entered in the holy Garden of Eden according the chance that the Lord God gave to him and tempted Eve and Adam. This temptation happened through the command of The Lord only. So, the Lord God did not punish the Satan.

Dear readers! Why did the Lord God punish the earth? 1st reason: – Adam was formed from the dust of the ground i.e. the earth. And Adam violated the command of the Lord God by eating the forbidden fruit and made his body a cursed one. So, the dust in the body of Adam was cursed one. This dust came out from the earth only. So, the Lord God cursed the earth. The second reason: – The fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil was formed from the ground only i.e. from the earth.

The third reason: – The Lord God punished Adam. So, if it is to be fulfilled, the earth ought not to give her fertility. So, the Lord God said, “Cursed is the ground for your sake”. ……Genesis 3:17.

Dear readers! The Lord God punished the earth because of above mentioned reasons and left Satan unfinished as he followed His command. Amen.

[] Where was God, when Satan was deceiving Eve?

Dear readers! We are bound to accept a matter that how far we are grown up as the Christians among the Christianity which spread in this world; we are still living in clueless stage. It is very rare to find great scholars who digested the Holy Bible completely.

Dear readers! So many religious scrolls in the world are formed with different descriptions and with human knowledge by arranging different kinds of images of the gods and goddesses. These scriptures are of the fiction stories of these images. But, the scroll, the Holy Bible was not written with the knowledge of human being in this way. The Lord God prophesied through the prophets whom He had chosen and made them to write the Scripture.

The history of the prophets in the Old Testament and the Apostles in the New Testaments explains us clearly how the Holy Bible was written. From this, the authors of the Old Testament are called the prophets. And the authors of the New Testament are called the Apostles. It is impossible to grasp the hidden secrets in the books written by the Apostles and Prophets without carrying the Spirit of the Lord i.e. the Holy Spirit.

Dear readers! If we understand the history of the Garden of Eden completely, it is possible to understand the Holy Bible completely. Whatever may be, let us go to our original topic, “In the beginning, was not the Lord God there, when the Satan spoke with Eve in the Garden of Eden? Truly, this question confuses the believers. The answer to this is, the Lord God was before the woman. How was the Lord God before the woman? It is written,

“And out of the ground the Lord God made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. The tree of life was also in the midst of the Garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil” ….in the Genesis 2:9.

From this, the Lord God kept two covenants before the couple in the Garden of Eden to test them.

1. To live forever in divinity – The Tree of Life

2. To enter in everlasting death – The tree of the knowledge of good and evil i.e. the tree of death.

“See, I have set before you today life and good, death and evil” …. Deuteronomy 30:15.

The tree of life is the fore symbol for the Lord Christ. So, The Lord God who was in the form of the Lord Christ i.e. the tree of life was before Eve, when she was tempted by the Satan through the serpent.

[] How could serpent know about the forbidden fruit?

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? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: 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. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: 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. 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. – Genesis 3:1-6 KJV

Dear readers! Even though it appears to us that the serpent spoke to Eve, the one, who spoke to Eve, was the Satan only. In which way, the Satan gets the permission from the Lord God in the matter of Job as in Job 1:1-2:9, in the same way the Satan gets the permission from the Lord God to tempt Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. So, the Lord gave the complete message about the Garden of Eden to the Satan. So, when the Satan entered in the Garden of Eden, he knew about the forbidden fruit tree. But, the Satan entered in the serpent and said to Eve as the unknown person, “Has God indeed said, “You shall not eat of every tree of the Garden?” That much only, the serpent did not know about the forbidden fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

  • * What is the motive for the Satan using serpent, instead of speaking invisibly?

Genesis 3:1-6

Dear readers! The Satan, who thinks in advance, was a tempter. So, Paul also says that it is very hard to know the way of the Satan’s temptation. So, the Satan, who thinks in advance, thought that suppose if he speaks to Eve in invisible form, they would have doubts about why the Lord God said, “Not to eat”, before, and why the Lord Said, “To eat”, now. And also, the Satan grasped that Adam and Eve may argue with him about the forbidden fruit, because they think that the one, who spoke with them in invisible form, is the Lord God. So, the Satan entered in the serpent, instead of staying invisible, and tempted the Eve through the serpent.

[] The fruits of the tree of life

 

 

Revelation 2:7 “To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God”

As written in the Genesis 2:9, God had sown this tree of life in the Eden Garden towards east. We also read that along with this tree, he had sown another tree which would give the knowledge of the good and the evil. One was divine while the other was pertained to this material world. Though the first man was a complement of divine spirit, his body was worldly, and so he lived in such a way that he could not know the hidden secrets of the tree of life. The human doesn’t seem to have been in at least the premises of that tree. But, the Satan who was the leader of the world, approached the spouse, the helper of the man and preached in relation with the world, presenting the God as a liar, with his crookedly tactics made the man eat the fruit that gave the knowledge of the good and the evil and was victorious in performing this deed. This victory of the Satan evolved as deadly to the man. Through this, the man had acquired the accursed death. Then, what happened to this Tree of Life in the Garden of Eden? How did this Tree of Life come into this Paradise? This question may arise in us. God is not biased to anyone. He would not harm or do injustice to anyone in any circumstances. Swing that, instead of eating the fruits of the tree of life, the man had eaten the forbidden fruit, God had given an immense thought, he had foreseen that the man can eat the fruits of the tree of life with the knowledge of the good and the evil, the man who had joined hands with the Serpent, with the world, with the fruit of earth would never hinder in performing any sort of deeds and obstructed the way to the tree of life with the flaming sword. This means that he had created such a condition that man cannot reach it. Due to the specific protection that the God had given to that tree of life in those days the human being is unable to find it even today.

Then, what about this Tree of Life? Who had observed it so far? This fact is still hidden even today. Then where is this Tree of Life now? There aren’t any evidences in the history to prove that it is removed from the Garden of Eden. After expelling the first human couple from the Eden, the God had foreseen that they would eat the fruit and acquire the life forever, on the way to the Tree of Life; he had installed the flaming swords of life to guard and obstruct them. In this way, he could prevent them approaching even the premises of that tree. And in real, what is this Tree of Life? What is the glory in it? How did it exist? Why was it sown? Why is great care taken to keep its existence a secret from man? This knowledge is not in reach of the thought and wisdom of a man and his spiritual state. This reveals that the human being is not even giving a thought at all about the state and condition of the tree of life or its fruits or any knowledge about it, and limited himself with only the consumption of the fruits of the good and the evil leading his life with the knowledge of discrimination of this material world which is bestowed by this fruit. We must know that the eating of the forbidden fruit that day had bestowed the knowledge of the good and the evil of life pertaining to this world, to the people of this generation also.

But, this Tree of Life is like a model to the Lord Christ. Because, in his preaching he said, “If they do these things in the green wood, what would be to the dry?” comparing himself to a tree. “I am the true Vine, and My Father is a Vinedresser.” In the same way, he is comparing the believer to the grape vine, the climbers, and asking them to wind up to himself and produce the divine fruits. He preached, he who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruits.” Revealing about himself to the world, the Lord Christ says, John 6:41 “The Jews then murmured at him, because he said, I am the bread which came down from heaven.” John 6:50-51 “This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.

I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eats of this bread, he shall live forever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.” These verses reveal that he is comparing himself to a tree. Isaiah 53:2 “For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. “Even in the Song of Solomon and Genesis 49:11, he is written as the vine.

To give life to the useless lives like ours, unprofitable i.e., dried up trees transform into green living sprouting trees and fruits, the lord God possesses the necessary power and the essence and effect and resurrection and thus it is reasonable to consider him as the tree of life. We find numerous species in the world and every tree requires water and food to survive. In the same way, the human life is exactly the life of a tree. If the man transgressed the god’s order by eating the forbidden fruit, the human being is just like a tree. The attitude of human is like that of a tree. The wisdom of a man is the wisdom of a tree. So, the Lord Christ who was the son of God had compared himself to a tree. He is preaching the people that he is a vine and the people must survive by getting grafted with the tree of life named the Lord Jesus. He is preaching them to be fruitful through him. John 15:4 “Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch, cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.” So, if we all believe in the Lord Jesus are got grafted with the tree of life of named the Lord Jesus and be united with him are related to him, we will have peace and conciliation in our families and have the lives eligible for the divinity. Spiritually, we understand that every human is like a tree. If we think deeply about this, John who had offered baptism to the Lord Jesus said, referring to those who approached him to embrace baptism, Matthew 3:10 “And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore, every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.” So, every tree which doesn’t bear good fruit is cut and thrown into the fire. This means that they would part take the death of the fiery lake of burning Sulphur.

So, even John who had offered baptism to the Lord Jesus also compared the human who was not in the life which can’t bear the spiritual fruit eligible for the divinity to a tree that was ready to be cut. The astonishing fact is that, as the human possesses life so do the trees. Even the trees possess various parts similar to humans, like branches, stems, twigs, leaves, fruits ripe and unripe, buds etc., Just how the human possesses mobility though stands firm with roots, it would sway in the air and glorifies with greenery. It gives shelter to various creatures. It shadows every creature under it which suffers in the singeing hot sun and offers them relaxation.

According to the boons of wisdom that the lord had bestowed to us, according to the air, light, food, the spiritual Lord’s supper and drink and Lord’s water of prayers, we who are living in the relation to the earth, we would develop as those related to the spirit and make the fruits of the spirits fruitful. But, we are making the fruits of our bodies fruitful in relation to this earth. But, there are fruits of spirits or spiritual fruits. About the fruits of body, it is given in the Galatians 5:19-22 “Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

Envying, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith.” The trees do not possess the fruits of body and spiritual fruits as a man possesses. Because, the trees do not possess spirits and so do not possess spirits they follow the seasons and perform their deeds accordingly and would give us the fruits as bestowed by God. But, a human being is completely different from this. The human being is not following the strict rules and regulations and is leading a life viewing the divinity, the worldly society, the humanity and the gibberish equally. This is a wasteful life. it means a lukewarm life. Such life is ineligible for the society and the divinity. And so, the man is a useless for the society and is declined to the state of curse for the divinity.

Though the Tree of Life or the fruit of the Tree of Life do not exist among us in live, the tree exists invisible. The fruits of the trees or the effects of those fruits still exist in the humans performing everlasting deeds. Who is the one that observed this? The tree which was sown by God himself in the Garden of Eden practically got invisible due to the transgression of the man, and now exists among the humans as a moving as a living tree and is giving vision in the form of the Lord Christ. The human being who had eaten this earthly quiescent fruit, as he could not observe the former half meaning of this tree of life, it was severed by human beings and due to all these, today, in the hearts of every believer, the seed of this tree is sprouted out. Its influence alone is the pervading of Gospel. That seed alone is the verse of the God. The place where it is sown is the heart of every believer.

Ephesians 4:6 “One God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.” In saying so, as the seed of the tree of life must be present sown in us and not in the Paradise that exist high above the mountains, in the form of the Gospel, the seed of this tree of life is sown in the heart of every believer.

But, then, the Lord had promised that he would allow the victorious eat the fruits of the tree of life. But then, Revelation 22:1-2 “Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb, down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.” According to this verse, this is the base that this exists in the Paradise. These deserve to be the food for the Spirits.

[] Entry of Sin! Was it from Adam or before Adam?

Romans 5:12 “Just as sin entered the world through one man, and death resulted from sin, therefore everyone dies, because everyone has sinned”. So, sin entered in to this world due to Adam’s denial of following God’s command. Were there any sinners before Adam on this earth? No, not in humans because Adam was the first human. But bible says that there was sin before Adam in angels as per 2 Peter 2:4” For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but threw them into the lowest hell and imprisoned them in chains of deepest darkness, holding them for judgment “. From this we can understand that the angels were the first one to sin because heaven and angels are created before earth. Also, you can read in first chapter that this was one of the reason for extracting earth from waters which was used as punishment place for fallen angels.

What may be the reason for angels to sin as they are not married or given in marriage, there is no fornication and they had everything they need? Mark 12:23 “In the resurrection, when they rise again, which one’s wife will she be? For all seven had married her.” Jesus said to them, “Is this not the reason you are mistaken, that you do not understand the Scriptures or the power of God? “For when they rise from the dead, they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven.” The root cause of sin in angels as well as humans is the ingratitude. We need to be thankful to God for all the blessings given instead we can see that some worship idols, demons and some say there is no God. Same thing happened among angels, God has given them all the powers to see and experience wonderful creation of God. All He wanted from them is a little gratitude and a share of love in their enjoyment. Instead they revolted against God with a great proud. We can read about Lucifer’s proud and his fall in Isaiah 14:12-15 “you have fallen from heaven, morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations! You said in your heart, “I will ascend to the heavens; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, on the utmost heights of Mount Zaphon. I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.” But you are brought down to the realm of the dead, to the depths of the pit”

Also, Luke 17:17-19 says that 9 out of 10 cured of leprosy did not express their gratitude. What happens to those who don’t express their gratitude towards God is explained in Hosea 2:8-10 “She has not acknowledged that I was the one who gave her the grain, the new wine and oil, who lavished on her the silver and gold which they used for Baal. “Therefore, I will take away my grain when it ripens, and my new wine when it is ready. I will take back my wool and my linen, intended to cover her naked body. So now I will expose her lewdness before the eyes of her lovers; no one will take her out of my hands.

Perceiving God’s existence and his power is very easy says Romans 1:19-22 “since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse. For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools”.

We can understand that the root cause of sin is ingratitude. So, dear readers, please do not forget to say thanks and praises to God for all that you have received.

[] The crown of life

“For You have made him a little lower than the angels, and You have crowned him with glory and honor. You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet” ……Psalms 8:5-8.

Dear readers! The Lord God formed the man in His image according to His likeness, and clothed them with glorified white robes. At the same time, He gave the crown of life to him. The crown of life is one privilege. We can read about the people who are crowned in the visions of John in Revelation 4:4, 9:7, 12:3, 13:1, 19:12, 2:10, 3:11, 4:10, 6:2, etc. From this, what do we know? We know that the crowns are in the heaven. These crowns are the privileges, which the Lord God gave to the man. These crowns give the information to us about their high position in the heaven.

Dear readers! When did the Lord, God give the crown of life to Adam? And when did Adam lose the crown of life? Let us know about these now.

“For You have made him a little lower than the angels, and You have crowned him with glory and honor. You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet” …….Psalms 8:5-8.

In this verse, the Lord God gave one crown to the man as the authority over His work. This crown is the crown of Life. The one, who have this crown of life, lives forever.

Dear readers! When Adam and Eve violated the command of the Lord and entered in to the sin, in the same day, they got the spiritual death by losing the glorified white robes and the crown of life. But, how do we get the crown of life again? Each and every Christian can easily give answer to this question.

“You will have tribulation ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life” ……Revelation 2:10.

“Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been proved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him” ……James 1:12.

From this, Adam did not stand in the temptation and lost the crown of life.

So, the Lord God said in the form of Jesus Christ to John His disciple, “You will have tribulation ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life”. Amen.

The Divine Plans in the Garden of Eden

So many authors could write many kinds of literatures regarding Christian philosophy. But, the Holy Bible, being two parts i.e., the Old Testament and the New Treatment, appears easy to hold in our hands, contains the hidden secrets in the divine plan which are beyond the limits of the earth and sky. In reality, the kind of divine secrets which were revealed in the Holy Bible are not written in any other book or literature. Dear readers! Moses, who was unaware of God, had no divine knowledge, and became the author of first five books in the Holy Bible. Merely God’s motive, will, knowledge, provocation, selection, surrounding, etc., were performed on behalf of Moses by the Lord. The state of the waters, the Spirit of God hovering over the face of the deep, the light which was delivered by the word of the Spirit of God, the creatures, creation and the deeds of the creation, were formed through this light and word; thereafter, he could write about the formation of the man, and the formation of the woman, the tree of Life in the Garden of Eden, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, the cunning serpent, etc. Thereafter, he could write the deceit of the serpent on the woman, the entry of the first couple into the sin, the enmity among the five elements, the pollution of atmosphere, diversity in the creation and the first couple were driven out by God. Likewise, he could write about the generation who came from first couple, the sin that spread along with the generation, and the result which was a great massacre through the floods by the Lord God. The Ark, which was constructed according to the divine plan through Noah, gave the salvation for the family of Noah through this Ark. Dear readers! All these happened some thousands of years ago before the birth of Moses. These incidents were revealed to Moses by the Lord and made him to write during those illiterate days, in which there were no pen, paper, pencil and a type writer. The books, which were written in that situation, were first five books in the Holy Bible. Dear readers! In those days, there were no preachers for Moses to teach him. The Lord God was the one, who trained Moses in literacy, divine knowledge, scripture, etc. God trained Moses, and revealed him the secrets in the creation of first five books in those days directly. Amongst them was the history of the Garden of Eden. This book is written by relying upon the secrets in the Garden of Eden.
