Genesis 3:6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.
Eve ate and then Adam ate.
Was Adam there to hear the serpent speak to Eve? Did Adam eat right away? What was Adam thinking at that moment before he ate? Did Eve take the fruit to her husband and then eat without telling him where she got it? Was there anything special about the appearance of the fruit so that Adam would know the source of the fruit? Did Adam believe the lie?
All these questions and more are not addressed in the bible. Adam ate. That is all we know. If we ask all these questions and insist on knowing the why of it, are we seeking God’s message to us or looking to satisfy our own curiosity? What makes us want to know the why of it all?
Allow me to take you back to yesterday’s blog and point out on important factor. We were born into the realm of the prince of the power of the air. We were born into dust and where we landed held sway over our life experiences and influences until that day we came to discover Jesus and invite Him into our hearts.
The need to know why came as a part of Satan’s realm. It is that lie Satan tells each of us. You have to know why before you can trust God.
Here is what the bible says about this event. God said don’t eat. Adam ate. Their eyes were opened. They saw what it looked like to be disobedient. No one knows what it feels like to lose our innocence until we lose it.
