Text: Genesis 3:22-24.

22: And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:
23: Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.
24: Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.

Adam was kept in Eden (a place of delight and pleasure), he was meant to keep it and dress it. Genesis 2:15. This is like bringing someone from the village into a city, put him a well furnished house in a good environment. Put everything a man needs to be comfortable there and tell him to enjoy himself and keep the house in order.

Adam had everything to himself even to the naming of all creatures. Adam was delegated authority by God to exercise dominion of over all that God made.

God made everything before he made Adam, he wanted Adam to lack nothing, he wanted everything for Adam’s pleasure. This is like when a father wants his son to be comfortable, makes everything ready for him.

But Adam was soon deceived by the devil, this is like when the person you brought from the village failed to keep to instructions, of course, you will send he or she back to the village. The disobedience of Adam and Eve necessitates their expulsion from Eden (the place of delight and pleasure).

Adam and Eve were expelled from a city kind of life to a village-like life. No light, no road, they were to struggle for their survive, they were sent to a place of darkness, sorrow, pains, struggles, misery, destruction, death, wickedness etc.

Have you ever wondered why God would allow evil befall people? Some people will even say, ‘ why did God allow evil to befall people? . The answer is not far fetched: this is because Adam and Eve were returned to the world of darkness and empty waste Genesis 1:3. (I will expatiate this later)

The place they were expelled to is the world we are now, world of pains, calamity, evil, wickedness, death, destruction etc. They were chased out of the place of pleasure and delight (Eden means place of delight and pleasure). So God is not responsible for the evil men encounter in life it was Adam who through disobedience brought humanity out of the place of pleasure and delight.

God willing to take us back to the place of pleasure sent his son, Jesus, to died for our sin. I will continue from here in part 5.

* Thank you Lord for sending your son to die for me.
