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.
