The Consequences of Sin Falls Upon Adam

With all things there are consequences; the consequences of sin fell upon Adam, Eve, and even the serpent. Here is how it all went from Genesis 3:

9 And the Lord God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?

10 And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.

11 And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?

12 And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.

13 And the Lord God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.

14 And the Lord God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:

15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

16 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.

17 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;

18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;

19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

20 And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.

21 Unto Adam also and to his wife did the Lord God make coats of skins, and clothed them.

22 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:

23 Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.

24 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.

Brief Comments

The LORD GOD called Adam, but Adam was visibly afraid and told the LORD GOD he was naked. He was asked how he knew he was naked; obviously, he’d spoken (eaten) from the tree he was commanded not to eat from.

Adam went into coward defense mode; he blamed the LORD for giving him the woman (he also blamed the woman). She’d forced or encouraged him to eat. The LORD GOD turned to the woman asking for an explanation of what she’d just done. She claimed she was tricked by the serpent.

The serpent was not asked a thing, instead, he was sentenced immediately with consequences and judgment. He became cursed above all cattle and beasts. He would eat dust all his days, which also means he will eat at the man all the days.

Strife Between the Seeds

In addition, enmity was placed between the serpent and the woman as well as between their seed. This has spiritual connotations to it; the woman is not Eve per se, the woman now is represented in the LORD’s bride, which will begin with Abraham’s seed.

The serpent’s seed is Canaan, Babylon, and those attached to them. The woman’s seed will prevail. The woman was given multiplied sorrow in childbirth and her desire will be her husband’s desire (this is deep). Her husband will rule over her also.

To Adam, he’s getting a workload he would have never had. A sacrifice was made for their sin, even the Lamb which was slain from the foundation of the world, and Adam was separated from the Tree of Life as he was sent out of the garden of Eden.

Lastly, Cherubims were placed around the Tree of Life with flaming swords to keep the way.
