ASV notes on Genesis 9:20-21, 26 and questions

Sinners

We are all born sinners, the sin is there for the devil to exploit and affect our way of thinking. We need to keep our mind on God, not now and then, but every day, all day. You cannot be serious, yes I am serious, I am dead serious, the life with Jesus is a walk, Jesus in your life is walking on the narrow road, you have to keep up, and you cannot resist sinning and the devil on your own, follow Jesus or you are left behind.

Enemy

Noah wanted a good life, like you and me, and he made wine and drank it to feel even better than only being with God and his family. By doing that he messed up a lot and got his grandson cursed. The life with God is not satisfying your flesh all the time, but the flesh is your enemy, it is against you, God is for you, and with Jesus, you will have a Good life here and now.

ASV notes on Genesis 9:26

No other

Noah was a sinner like you and me, but God made him prophesy for his family, for the future mankind. Can God use sinners? Well He has no other, Noah though being a sinner was obedient to God’s word; he spent about 50 years building a wooden box on inland probably far from water, believing God. Noah walked with God in patience and faith. As God told Cain that the sin is there and crouching at the door, but you must master it. To master the sin God gave us Jesus, who mastered the sin and saved us from it.

Questions

  1. Is the devil smarter than you?
  2. How do we master the sin?

ASV notes on Genesis 3:20-24 and questions

The source of life

Life reappears

Adam gave a name to his woman and called her Eve, which means a source of life or life-giver, because she was to give life to all the people that were to be born on earth. Eve died but her name was still Eve and she did not change it. She was now going to give birth to dead people, people without the spiritual connection to God’s spirit. People were “dead” but the name of Eve was still “the source of life.” In the gloom of death Eve still was a living prophesy, that one day the life would reappear and once again fill the hearts of people.

God loves you

Now Adam and Eve had sinned but God still loved them and looked after them, He made them tunics of animal skins, God made tunics, not one tunic, but several. The tunics God made must have been of first class.

Another tree

In the middle of the garden, there was another tree, the tree of life having fruit with the everlasting life in them. The problem now was that if Adam and Eve ate from that tree also, they would live in their fallen state forever and fill the earth with sin and death, no they had to die if not, sin would develop in all its horror and fill the earth with gloom and darkness.

Leaving the garden

However, God still loved them and all the people after them; therefore, He blocked the access to the tree of life. Because God loved humanity, Adam and Eve had to leave the garden. 

Questions

  1. Why did Adam and Eve have to leave The Garden of Eden?
  2. Does God know how to sow?
  3. Does God know better than you and me?
