The Great Exchange Pt. 1: Where It All Began

The very first law God gave to mankind was to not eat of the Tree of The Knowledge of Good and Evil, or they would die. We all know the story, Eve ate, then Adam ate, but neither one physically died. Why? Did God make an empty threat? What kind of death was God speaking of? Join Reverend Kenny Yates as he answers all of these questions and more in his fiery message, The Great Exchange: Where It All Began.

Where It All Began Verses

The Command

15 The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it. 16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, “You may surely eat of every tree of the garden, 17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.”

Genesis 2:15-17

The Sin

Adam and Eve didn’t just sin; they made an exchange. They exchanged their soul for knowledge.

So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate, and she also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate.

Genesis 3:6

16 For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life—is not from the Father but is from the world.

1 John 2:16

The Consequence

Adam and Eve’s innocence was taken from them the day they ate the fruit from the Tree of The Knowledge of Good and Evil in the midst of the Garden of Eden. They didn’t die physically but spiritually. This is where it all began. This was the beginning of sin.
