God went down to talk with Adam and Eve as usual in the cool of the day, normally they would be in the open and easy to find, but this time when God came they were afraid and had hidden behind some trees or bushes.
In the presence of YaHaWaH, you feel inner peace and secure, you know that He is the one taking care of things and looks after you. However in this case with Adam and Eve eating of the fruit of Good and evil, all the responsibility was suddenly on their shoulders, they had to perform and present themselves.
They could not walk in the garden naked anymore, and they had to defend their actions. Adam blamed the woman, the woman blamed the serpent, and they knew they were in big trouble, however they did not know what they had done to the rest of mankind in the future times. I think God felt sorry for them and saved them from comprehending the devastating result of what they had done.
- What did Adam and Eve do?
- Why were they afraid?
- Who was the crook behind it all?
