The Fourth day

Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord has made. And he said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden?” —Genesis 3:1 (NIV)

Here are a few points of my little understanding of today’s verse:

The serpent is an image of “Satan”. One of the argument is :If God has created all things Good, where did Satan come from?

Originally, Satan was an angle of light called the Morning Star (or “Lucifer”). He rebelled against God and fell from heaven, taking one third of the angels with him. Rather than retaliating directly against the Father – a fight that he could not win – Satan took his revenge by tempting human beings to forsake God and abandon the intimate relationship they had with God.

Unfortunately, our first human parents were seduced by Satan and failed in temptation. They chose to sin from a state of primal innocence and intimacy.

From then on, SIN has entered the world from Adam. We are all sinners and were separated from the Father – ORPHANED.

    There are two passages in Bible that make my heart hurts. One is the crucifixion of Jesus, the other one is the verse. Satan was tricky. He didn’t say anything against the Lord to Eve. What he did was that he just made Eve start to doubt the word of God. (Did God really say you must not eat the fruit from that tree?) But that slight doubts was deadly enough to cause the first as well as the most devastating sin human being has ever sinned. Today we still are suffered from it.
    Do we sometimes doubt the word of God? Do we occasionally put our own understanding before the word of God? Yes we do. The doubts we have today has no difference from that of Eve. Since doubts had been used before by Satan and it was so deadly, Satan would use it again on us. Be on your guard!
