Pamphlet #6226 Genesis KC 9-4
Adam and Eve now needed a covering,
because of sin.
If you still wonder why the covering was an apron to cover the loins better go back and read #2531 again.
[Genesis 3:1] Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them.
We all need a covering, because of sin!
Here we see animals being used (sacrificed) to provide that covering.
This beginning of "blood sacrifice" would continue down
through the ages until the supreme sacrifice,
of that unblemished Lamb of God, paid the price on the cross,
to provide our covering once and for all.
And guess what?
Because He did pay the price, we now get to wear the gospel
armour (Eph. 6)
as full protection from that fiery dart-throwing serpent.
I don't know about you, but I really likes the fit.
 And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:
As one of the Elohim, God and the host, i.e. God and His sons, the angels.
They certainly knew the difference between good and evil
from the "world that then was"
which God destroyed at judgment.
That's why we have the plan of salvation, of restoration.
 Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.
It is for that purpose you were created, i.e. to "till the ground".
God will eventually use this
man's descendents to cultivate civilization,
the real purpose for which he was created, using His "sword",
as both the plow and the seed.
It was to be the destiny of the race of eth' ha Adam.
History documents it thoroughly.
God's Word is true!
 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubim, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.
And in due time, right on time, as was first prophesied
in Gen. 3:15,
He did come and walk among men!
It was God's most precious gift to His children.
How can we not pour out our hearts in love to Him
when we see how much He loves us?
Do you see?
Well, we didn't quite make it far enough in today's study to meet Eve's twins, the two seed lines.
But they are "next up" in chapter four of this incredibly fascinating Book of Genesis.
What a thriller it is!

To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits;
to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
