God and the fallen Man

I. The Lies

Lie about God's provision(v1)-First words out of Satan's mouth are lies- essence of Satan is a misrepresentation of God, who he is and what he said

Lie about God's honesty (v4-5)

Lie about God’s character and credibility

Lie about God's Identity

II. The Sin (v6)

Sin of misappropriation for Eve (Deceived)

Sin of omission for Adam (Was with Eve but chose to do nothing)

Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:

Romans 5:12 KJV

https://bible.com/bible/1/rom.5.12.KJV


For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.

1 Timothy 2:13‭-‬14 KJV

https://bible.com/bible/1/1ti.2.13-14.KJV


Every time God is leading you to do something or say something, and you did nothing, you are doing the sin of Adam. The sin that damned the whole world.


III. The consequences- separation

Between man and woman-Nakedness is no longer an indication of perfect intimacy but now of shame (v7)

And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

Genesis 2:25 KJV

https://bible.com/bible/1/gen.2.25.KJV

And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

Genesis 3:7 KJV

https://bible.com/bible/1/gen.3.7.KJV


2. Between God and creation


And they heard the voice 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 amongst the trees of the garden.

Genesis 3:8 KJV

https://bible.com/bible/1/gen.3.8.KJV,


IV. The judgment

a. Serpent-cursed

Plural- children of Satan are always in conflict with the children of God

Singular- Jesus will crush the serpents (Satan's) head

b. Woman-pain

Pain in childbirth

Pain in marriage and relationships

The fall introduced distortions into the relationship between men and women in the following:


In the Home

The husband's loving humble headship tends to be replaced by domination or passivity. The wife's intelligent willing submission tends to be replaced by usurpation or servility.


In the Church

In the church sin inclines men toward a worldly love of power or an abdication of spiritual responsibility. Sin inclines women to resist limitations on their roles or neglect the use of their gifts in appropriate ministries


c. Man- ground is cursed. Pain in work


Lessons

Essence Of Sin- Questioning God, with regards to sin, family, church, sexuality

Satan is still telling us the same lies, that we can become gods, we can make our own decisions, that we are the captains of our fate and the masters of our soul.

God is Judge and Redeemer
