Hold to the Faith

1 Now the serpent was more crafty than any other beast of the field that the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God actually say, ‘You shall not eat of any tree in the garden’?” ~ Genesis 3:1

I believe the serpent was challenging Adam, the herald for God, or at least, he was the conveyor of the Law, or the word of God “Thou shalt not eat …” In other words, he was casting doubt on the accuracy of what was passed down to Eve. “Did God actually say …?”

How do you know? You weren’t there. You didn’t actually hear God say it, Adam told you, and he could have changed it up, or left something out, or got something wrong.

You see, as I understand it, Eve wasn’t created when the Gospel was given. The law was given to the man before the woman was created. So, the Gospel, or the Law, or the word of God was handed down to the woman just as it is handed down to us. The evil one came and tried to question the reliability of the word handed down to her.

“Did God really say …? I don’t mean that your husband is a liar, but, after all, he is just a man.”

Eve answered with full confidence, relying on the accuracy of what was handed down to her. She said, “God did say …”

Although Eve didn’t quote Adam word for word, she actually added in “… nor touch it,” Eve was confident that her husband heard directly from God. How confident are you that the authors of the Bible heard directly from God? How confident are you that the Word of God is God-breathed? Your faith will be tested at some point in time if it hasn’t already, but you have to be confident in your beliefs and not give in to any doubt as Eve did. Because if you conquer, you will receive everlasting life with Christ Jesus.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Hold to the Faith.
