Adam’s First Wife: Eve or Lilith

We all know the creation story of Adam and Eve. It’s one of the first stories you learn as a child in Sunday School or as a new Christian. Even though many of us know of the creation story of Adam and Eve, does that mean that that’s the true story? Is there something more to the creation story that we’re missing? Was there another woman before Eve? Was Eve really Adam’s first wife, or was there another before her named Lilith? Join ArieRashelle as she searches through Scripture to find the truth behind the creation of man and woman in her video, Adam’s First Wife: Eve or Lilith.

Adam’s First Wife: Eve or Lilith

The Creation of Man and Woman

The Verse That Caused Confusion

26 Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

Genesis 1:26-27

The Explanation

Many believe that this is evidence that God created Adam and then his first wife, Lilith, and then finally Adam and Eve. This, however, doesn’t match Scripture, nor does this verse hint at that idea. Genesis 1:26-27 is simply saying that God created man first. He created man in His image and likeness. Then God explains that He created Adam and Eve, male and female. This follows the exact order of the Genesis 2 account of the creation of man and woman.

The Creation Story Pt. 4: The Theory of Evolution

Throughout our public-school system and private schools, Evolution is taught as a fact with it being the absolute and only truth explaining the existence of mankind. While Creationism is not only removed from the curriculum but mocked and called foolishness and a crutch. This now begs the question, “Is Evolution fact?” Join Reverend Kenny Yates as he digs deep into the claims of Evolution compared to Scripture in our latest video, ‘The Creation Story Pt. 4: The Theory of Evolution.’

Genesis 1:26-28
Genesis 11:1-9
Acts 8

The Dangers of Evolution vs. Creation

Evolution is currently the only explanation for the existence of mankind taught in our public school system today. Evolution is the Scientific Theory that all organisms evolved from one common ancestor through Natural Selection and Genetic Drift. The earliest undisputed evidence of life, according to secular Scientists, dates back 3.5 billion years ago during the Eoarchean Era.

Evolution states that mankind or homo sapiens evolved from primates or more specifically Genus Homo. This evolution from primates to humans took around 15 to 20 million years to evolve and mutate into the mankind we have today. This is in direct contradiction to the Genesis account of Creation.

Genesis 1:26-28

26 Then God said, ‘Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.’ 27 So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 And God blessed them. And God said to them, ‘Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.’


According to Scripture, which is the Word of God and is directly God-breathed, God came down to earth and formed man in His own image. He then put the man to sleep, took one of his rib bones, and formed a woman from man. They then went on to multiply and fill the earth. So, according to God-Himself, the Creator of everything, we did not evolve from apes. God formed us by hand. We were divinely designed.

Some could ask what could be the danger of believing in Evolution rather than Creation? Well, here is one danger. According to The Theory of Evolution, mankind evolved from Primates into Neanderthals, and finally into humans. Secular scientists tell us that blacks were the first humans on earth and that Africa is the motherland of all people. This statement doesn’t sound like a problem until you take your time and really think about what this statement is saying. According to The Theory of Evolution, we are evolving to survive, and only the strong survive. Therefore, the more we evolve, the smarter, stronger, and more superior we become. So, as Yale so kindly pointed out in a video showing our evolution as humans, the most evolved humans are white.

So, according to Evolution, all non-white blonde light-eyed people would be inferior as they are less evolved. Therefore, evolution not only justifies the slavery and extermination of any and all non-whites, but it also encourages it, as only the strong shall survive. This dangerous thinking can lead to many injustices and even genocides, such as the Jim Crow Laws, Holocaust, the Armenian Genocide, the Native American Reservations, to name a few.

What Does God Say?

This is not the way that God created nor intended us to see or treat one another. We were all created and formed by the hands of God. He came to die so that none would perish, but all have Eternal Life. God is not a God of hate or evil, but instead, He is a God of love and goodness. He sacrificed Himself so that we may live and not die. No man or woman was created inferior to another; instead, we were all created equal. Not only is Evolution false, but it is also a racist, degrading, and chaotic belief that leaves humans divided amongst each other with no purpose for existence. Evolution is a hopeless belief that divides us as the human race, while creation is filled with hope, unity, and equality.

Why Was Adam Created In The Image of God?

We’ve been taught that Adam and Eve were created in the Image of God, but when they sinned, the Image of God was corrupted. So, Jesus came to restore the Image of God in mankind, but is that true? Is that what the Bible teaches us? Were both Adam and Eve to be a provider and protector as God is our provider and our protector?

Why Was Adam Created In The Image of God?

God is our Provider

24 O Lord, how manifold are Your works! In wisdom have You made them all; the earth is full of Your creatures. 25 Here is the sea, great and wide, which teems with creatures innumerable, living things both small and great. 26 There go the ships, and Leviathan, which you formed to play in it. 27 These all look to You, to give them their food in due season. 28 When You give it to them, they gather it up; when You open Your hand, they are filled with good things. 29 When You hide Your face, they are dismayed; when You take away their breath, they die and return to their dust. 30 When You send forth Your Spirit, they are created, and You renew the face of the ground.

Psalms 104:24-30

Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving; make melody to our God on the lyre! He covers the heavens with clouds; He prepares rain for the earth; He makes grass grow on the hills. He gives to the beasts their food, and to the young ravens that cry.

Psalms 147:7-9

25 Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?
28 And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, 29 yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
31 Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

Matthew 6:25-33

Just as God is our provider, Adam was created to be Eve’s provider because He was created in the Image of God.

17 And to Adam He said, ‘Because you have listened to the voice of your wife and have eaten of the tree of which I commanded you, ‘You shall not eat of it,’ cursed is the ground because of you; in pain you shall eat of it all the days of your life; 18 thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you; and you shall eat the plants of the field. 19 By the sweat of your face you shall eat bread, till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for you are dust, and to dust, you shall return.’

Genesis 3:17-19

God is our Protector

1 I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth. He will not let your foot be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, He who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord is your keeper; the Lord is your shade on your right hand. The sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all evil; He will keep your life. The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forevermore.

Psalms 121

So Jesus again said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. All who came before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them. I am the door. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved and will go in and out and find pasture.
10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. 11 I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep. 12 He who is a hired hand and not a shepherd, who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees, and the wolf snatches them and scatters them. 13 He flees because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep.
14 I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me, 15 just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep16 And I have other sheep that are not of this fold. I must bring them also, and they will listen to my voice. So there will be one flock, one shepherd. 17 For this reason the Father loves me, because I lay down my life that I may take it up again. 18 No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it up again. This charge I have received from my Father.”

John 10:7-18

22 At that time the Feast of Dedication took place at Jerusalem. It was winter, 23 and Jesus was walking in the temple, in the colonnade of Solomon. 24 So the Jews gathered around Him and said to Him, “How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are the Christ, tell us plainly.” 25 Jesus answered them, “I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in my Father’s name bear witness about me, 26 but you do not believe because you are not among my sheep. 27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. 28 I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. 30 I and the Father are one.

John 10:22-30

Just as God is our protector, Adam was created to be Eve’s protector because He was created in the Image of God.

15 The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it.

Genesis 2:15

The Order of Creation

God created everything in a specific order. Why?

1 In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. And God saw that the light was good. And God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day.

Genesis 1:1-5

God created heaven and earth before He created anything else. Why? Why didn’t He created the sun first? Why did He wait for day 4 to create the sun?

14 And God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years, 15 and let them be lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light upon the earth.” And it was so. 16 And God made the two great lights—the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night—and the stars. 17 And God set them in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth, 18 to rule over the day and over the night, and to separate the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 And there was evening and there was morning, the fourth day.

Genesis 1:14-19

The Creation Story Pt. 2: The Creation of Man

God created man in His own image. After He found no mate for the man He had created, God created woman. If God created man and woman, when did they evolve? Where does evolution play in the creation of man? And why was woman created from man? Join Reverend Kenny Yates as he opens our eyes to the truth behind the creation of man in the second part of his, The Creation Story series.

Genesis 2:1-4
Genesis 1:1
Hebrews 2:6-8
Genesis 2:19
Genesis 2:7
Genesis 2:21-22
Genesis 2:24

Just to clarify, the word Heavens in Genesis 1:1 is not actually a plural word when going back to the Hebrew. We firmly believe that only the Third Heaven (and Earth) was created at the time Genesis 1:1 is referring to, not the other two heavens discussed in the video above.

The Creation of Man

Science teaches us that man evolved out of apes. But is that what God has told us?

The Creation Story: God first created man

When no bush of the field was yet in the land and no small plant of the field had yet sprung up—for the Lord God had not caused it to rain on the land, and there was no man to work the ground, and a mist was going up from the land and was watering the whole face of the ground— then the Lord God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature.

Genesis 2:5-7

The Creation Story: Then God created woman

18 Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.” 19 Now out of the ground the Lord God had formed every beast of the field and every bird of the heavens and brought them to the man to see what he would call them. And whatever the man called every living creature, that was its name. 20 The man gave names to all livestock and to the birds of the heavens and to every beast of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper fit for him. 21 So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh. 22 And the rib that the Lord God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man.

Genesis 2:18-22

Then They Became One Flesh

24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.

Genesis 2:24

According to Scripture, man did not evolve. He was created in the image of God. If Scripture does not support evolution, then evolution cannot be deemed true. Instead, it is a lie sold to us by the enemy. We did not evolve, we were created. Formed by the creator Himself.

The Creation Story Pt. 1: How Old Is The Earth?

We all know Genesis 1:1, “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” But do we all know what that means? Do we understand what Moses meant when he said, And God said, ‘Let there be light,’ and there was light.” (Genesis 1:3). Or maybe when he said, And God said, ‘Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.’ And God made the expanse and separated the waters that were under the expanse from the waters that were above the expanse. And it was so. And God called the expanse Heaven. And there was evening and there was morning, the second day.” How about evolution, is it fact or fiction? How old is the Earth? Does the Bible even say how old the earth is? Why did Moses say ‘evening then morning,’ if there was no sun? So, join Rev. Kenny Yates as he uncovers the truth behind the Creation Story in part one, How Old Is The Earth, of his four-part series, The Creation Story.

How Old is the Earth?

Does the Bible really say how old the earth is? The Bible starts with the words in the beginning.

1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

Genesis 1:1

If the Bible starts with, in the beginning, then wouldn’t it make sense that the Bible gives us the age of the earth?

But by the same word the heavens and earth that now exist are stored up for fire, being kept until the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly. But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.
