Genesis 3:22-24,4:1-4 King James Version (KJV)
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.
1 And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the Lord.
2 And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.
3 And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the Lord.
4 And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the Lord had respect unto Abel and to his offering:
What the seven are saying:
The “man” (along with mankind) just made the biggest blunder known to the creation. If you can imagine it, you can see all the angels viewing just slap their heads at the decision of the man, which was to listen to his wife over his Creator!
Sentences or consequences had been passed upon the serpent, woman, and man. At last, the LORD Almighty confessed to half of the serpent’s statement to the woman. “Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil,” the LORD stated.
Because of man’s new-found knowledge (and ability to return to such sources), the Sovereign LORD of Host decided to put the man out of the garden of Eden. Mankind could continue to eat in the garden and even center his attention to the tree of life, eat and live forever, tainted as he was and all.
Cherubims with Flaming Swords
Therefore, he was sent away to work the ground from which he was taken. The Creator placed Cherubims with flaming swords to keep the way of the tree of life after the man was sent away. The LORD placed the Cherubims in the east of the garden of Eden.
These seven verses take us right into the fourth chapter of the book of Genesis where the story jumps years ahead. At this point, Adam and Eve came together intimately and were doing so to have children. They had a son named Cain and he was followed by another son named Abel.
Abel kept the sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground. In the process of time, as they grew older, they brought gifts to the LORD; Cain brought the fruit of the ground. Abel brought the first of his flock and the fat. The LORD respected Abel’s offering. Seven verses!
