What was the Original Sin That Got Adam and Eve Kicked out of the Garden of Eden? Note: I did not ask you what most churches teach! I ask what that sin really was. Let’s find out.
We’ll first look at the Hebrew words translated eat and touch in the Bible as they apply to Genesis 2:16-17 and Genesis 3:3 and what they are really telling us if we correctly divide the “Word of Truth”.
If you want to unlock scriptures you can't just stick the key in and open up the door and stand there and peek in. You have to go in and look around. If you are not familiar with the original languages then at least check out other translations from credible scholars
The great scholar E. W. Bullinger wrote in his Introductory to "How to Enjoy the Bible", Kregel Publications, pg. 6. "When we come to ask ourselves, and say, 'Where did I learn this?' 'How did I get this?' 'Who taught this to me?' it is astonishing to find out how much we have imbibed from man, and from tradition; and not directly and for ourselves, from the Word of God.
"All that we have learned from our youth up must be tested and proved by the Word of God. Where we find it is true we must learn it over again, from God. And where it will not stand the test of His Word we must be not only content, but thankful to give it up; and receive Divine revelation in the place of man's imagination."
WARNING: Rightly Dividing the Word of God can be hazardous to your traditional beliefs.
2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth
Now, read these definitions of some Hebrew words that have to do with that sin.
Hebrew #398 'âkal
A primitive root; to eat (literally or figuratively): - X at all, burn up, consume, devour (-er, up), dine, eat (-er, up), feed (with), food, X freely, X in . . . wise (-deed, plenty), (lay) meat, X quite.
Hebrew #399 'ăkal
(Chaldee); corresponding to H398: - + accuse, devour, eat. (figuratively, Do what he says, as in eat it up!)
Eat: Genesis 2:15 And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. 16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: (do what he says) 17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat (figuratively, do what he says) of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
Hebrew 5060 naw-gah'
A primitive root; properly to touch, that is, lay the hand upon (for any purpose; euphemistically, to lie with a woman); by implication to reach (figuratively to arrive, acquire); violently, to strike (punish, defeat, destroy, etc.): - beat, (X be able to) bring (down), cast, come (nigh), draw near (nigh), get up, happen, join, near, plague, reach (up), smite, strike, touch
Touch: Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? 2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat (listen to) of the fruit of the trees (men) of the garden: 3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch (have sex with), it lest ye die. 4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: 5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil
Now that we’ve covered those definitions; We are going to go to the New Testament book of John and listen in on a conversation Jesus had with the Jews because Jesus knows what happened in the Garden of Eden and that Satan is Cain’s father.
John 8:38 I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father. 39 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham. 40 But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham. 41 Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God. 42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. 43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. 44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He (Cain) was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. 45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.
Note: God did not specifically mention touch (to figuratively lie with a women) in Genesis 2:17, but Satan must have been putting the make on Eve and God knew it, since she said God said it. Maybe it was in a private conversation she had with God, but not recorded in Genesis chapter 2.
The narrative at the bottom of the picture below reads:
"Adam and Eve were told by God not to eat apples from a certain tree in the garden. An evil serpent tempted Eve and she and Adam both ate the forbidden fruit. Because they disobeyed God, they were forced to leave the Garden of Eden."
This picture represent church tradition as taught in most so-called Christian churches; but it is not Biblical as Jesus just taught us in John 8:44.
Are we correct, or is the traditional Christian belief correct? You need to decide for yourself. I repeat: 2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
every instance in the Bible where the word FRUIT is used it is talked about in
the context of the actions of a person. Does he produce GOOD FRUIT OR BAD
FRUIT? as per the comparison to a fruit tree, is it’s fruit good or bad?
And of course when God talks about trees in the Bible He is most often figuratively talking about men, whether they are in flesh and blood bodies or still in angelic bodies.
So, let me ask you, who would be more likely to introduce Adam and Eve to do something bad than Lucifer/Satan who was a priest of God in the first earth age and rebelled, enticing 1/3 of all of us, God’s originally created children, to rebel with him.
When God made this earth livable again after having destroyed it in his fierce anger over Lucifer’s rebellion and then placed us here again, this time in flesh and blood animal type bodies, in our turn, as a way to teach us that Lucifer’s now called Satan’s ways are not workable. Who would be more likely than Satan himself, “The Tree of the Knowledge of Both GOOD and EVIL” (God more than likely had not placed any other tree/person in the garden who was part of Lucifer’s original rebellion; Therefore, His instructions to Adam and Eve were, that they could listen to what any tree in the garden instructed them to do except Satan, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.) to SEDUCE EVE, planting his seed in the human race, hoping to destroy Adam’s and Eve’s pure pedigree before our savior, Jesus Christ, would be born to a virgin descendant of theirs; thereby ruining God’s plan for Jesus to be born of perfect pure pedigree blood as a human, and to remain pure without sin. Then shedding his sin free blood on a cross at Calvary to cover the sins of mankind. If we will only repent of those sins and invite Him, Jesus Christ, into our heart to change it and make it perfect, like His own.
If to you "love truth" you will study the truth, which is His Word. Look out across the land. How many folks do you know that truly study His Word? You can tell by just listening to people that they have not received the "love of the truth", even though they may attend a church! 2 Thes. 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
Now I would like you to look at the definitions of two other Hebrew words, both translated AGAIN in English.
The first one is H3254
A primitive root; to add or augment (often adverbially to continue to do a thing): - add, X again, X any more, X cease, X come more, + conceive again, continue, exceed, X further, X gather together, get more, give moreover, X henceforth, increase (more and more), join, X longer (bring, do, make, much, put), X (the, much, yet) more (and more), proceed (further), prolong, put, be [strong-] er, X yet, yield.
The second one is
The second one isH5750
From H5749; properly iteration or continuance; used only adverbially (with or without preposition), again, repeatedly, still, more: - again, X all life long, at all, besides, but, else, further (-more), henceforth, (any) longer, (any) more (-over), X once, since, (be) still, when, (good, the) while (having being), (as, because, whether, while) yet (within).
In 4:2 we have the Hebrew word H3254 (often adverbially to continue to do a thing) Eve
and continued to do that thing, she bore his twin brother Abel. Yes,
she had twins, but, to two different men. During their orgy she
conceived Cain with Satan and
she conceived Abel with Adam.
In 4:25 we have the Hebrew word H5750 (again, repeatedly, still, more) Eve conceived Seth in another sexual encounter she later had with Adam alone.
Now also take note that:
Now also take note that:
lineage is listed starting in Genesis 5:.1. Adam's lineage, verse 3,
starts with his son Seth. (no mention of Cain being his son, and of course Abel was
Cain's lineage is listed starting in Genesis 4:16.
Cain's lineage is listed starting in Genesis 4:16.Note, Cain's lineage does not start with Adam. Cain had no human father.
Who were these Jews that Jesus is talking to? We must first understand that there are two different kinds of Jews in the world, as Jeremiah told us in Jeremiah 24.
In Jeremiah 24 the prophet is going to see two baskets of figs set out in the land of Judea. Here is a sneak preview of what he saw: Jeremiah 24:2 "One basket had very good figs (Jews of our brother Judah), even like the figs that are first ripe: and the other basket had very naughty figs (Kenite Jews), which could not be eaten, they were so bad."
We have the same 2 groups of Jews today just as were in the world when Jesus
walked this earth. The same mixed lot, most of which live in that Middle East
country we call Israel today. Some are descendants of our brother Judah (the good figs, descendants of our brother Judah who was one of the 12 sons of Israel) and some are descendants of Cain (Kenite Jews, the bad figs, descendants of Cain/Kenites through Satan)
Satan has that country we call Israel today so
brainwashed that they don’t even recognize Christ as their savior. And
he will soon, if we don't wise up, accomplish the same with us in the
Christian nations also. Mystery Babylon and Satan's "NEW WORLD
ORDER", the first beast of Revelation is taking care of that.

But the Kenites, and they are not all called Jews, are not all in the Middle East; They are mixed into and with our general population, even our Christian churches in Western Europe, the isles of Britain, and the Americas. They’ve taken control of and are running our church denominations, our so-called Christian publishing houses, our governments, our schools, our news media, and our banks. That pretty much covers the Four Hidden dynasties of Religion, Government, Economics and the Media doesn't it?
You see there are two different definitions of a Jew.
1st. definition; A descendant of Judah. (as in a descendant of one of the twelve tribes of ancient Israelites, Judah)
2nd. definition; A resident of or from Judea.
From G2448 (in the sense of G2455 as a country); udaean, that is, belonging to Jehudah: - Jew (-ess), of Juda.
Of Hebrew origin [H3063] or perhaps [H3194]; Judah (that is, Jehudah or Juttah), a part of (or place in) Palestine: - Judah.
From H5186; extended; Juttah (or Jutah), a place in Palestine: - Juttah.
From H3034; celebrated; Jehudah (or Judah), the name of five Israelites; also of the tribe descended from the first, and of its territory: - Judah.
