God provided a garden for Adam and gave him authority to rule over it. But, unknown to Adam, while tolling the land, Eve was deceived by the serpent, a.k.a. lucifer, the “shining one.”
satan planted a seed that both Adam and Eve partook of, resulting in their spiritual eyes opening, and the shame of nudity plagued them. By partaking of satan’s seed of rebellion, they both experienced a spiritual death and were forced to exit the Garden of Eden forever. The reward for their sin was a harvest of evil and corruption. Not only for them but for future generations to come.
After the completion of creation, God rested from all His work, but because of man’s fall, God broke His rest (Gen. 2:3). Man could not redeem himself from the curse of sin because, at that time, there wasn’t an earthly savior. Therefore, the voice of the Lord went walking through the garden on the cool of the day (v.8).
“Where can I go from your spirit? or where can I hide from your presence?” – David, (Psalm 139:7).
The voice of the Lord cried out, “Adam, where are thou?” (Gen. 3:9). It wasn’t that God did not know where Adam was and needed to ask. Adam and Eve tried to hide, but where can anyone hide from an Omnipotent, Omniscient, Omnipresent God?
“IN THE beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us” (John 1:1, 14a).
The word has now gone into redemption, and the time had arrived for the plan of redemption to unfold. Jesus came down forty-two generations to save sinners from the enemy’s curse. Jesus sacrificed Himself on the cross. His blood covered the mercy seat and satisfied the sin debt. Now man is no longer a slave to sin. The blood of Jesus paid man’s debt in full. So you see, the power of Jesus’s blood redeemed man from eternal damnation and set us free.
The voice of God that came for one man came again for all. Jesus is the vehicle by which God preordained to fix the sin problem. Your past, current, and future sins are atoned for. The blood of Jesus reaches forward throughout generations. He is now seated at the right of the Father, living to intercede for us. For it is written, “It is finished!”
The highlight of the story is, satan did not get dominion over a beautiful garden as he thought. He is now the prince of a cursed kingdom that brings forth thorns, thistles, and death (v.18). SATAN is a DEFEATED FOE. Hallelujah! Read the plans for his future in the Book of Revelation, Chapters 20 and 21. Justice has been served!
(Scripture Reference: Genesis Chapter Three)
Blessings to you!

Amen! Yes! God is calling “Come to me, all who are heavy burdened and I will give you rest.”
