Garden of Eden – Reenacted

Garden of Eden – Reenacted

Over and over again the Garden of Eden is reenacted. The LORD God told Adam what to do and what to not do. When tested, Adam listened to Eve instead of obeying the voice of The LORD God.

God speaks to men and tells them what He wants them to do and what He does not want them to do. It was Adam’s task to instruct Eve in the Word of The LORD God. Either he did not do that adequately or she did not accept it as truth to be followed. In any case, she did not obey what God required. Adam, then sinned willfully by also eating the offered fruit.

This is not blind, blistering, blathering patriarchy. This is obedience to the will of the Father. God breathed into Adam the breath of life. Eve’s life came from Adam. We are inextricably bonded together, but the man is the head of the woman. That is what the Bible says and it is what it means.

For man is not from woman, but woman from man.
Nor was man created for the woman, but woman for the man.
For this reason the woman ought to have a symbol of authority on her head, because of the angels. Nevertheless, neither is man independent of woman, nor woman independent of man, in the Lord.
For as woman came from man, even so man also comes through woman;
But all things are from God.
I Corinthians 11:8-12

There is no difference in value between men and women. They are equal. The difference is in function. Women are not to assume authority over men.

Men, we are to wash the women in our lives with the water of the Word. In-other-words, we are to be the Spiritual leaders in the home and the Church.

Men, what are you doing? Are you living in absolute integrity? Are you bringing the Word of The LORD God to your wife and family and all other persons in your life, or, are you listening to the voice of Eve.
God can and does speak through Eve. He can speak through your wife, mother, sisters, and other women in your life. But, it is your responsibility to know when that is happening and when it is not happening.

Women who are controllers are the scourge of our communities. Men love to have it so. It takes the weight of duty off of your shoulders and allows “Eve” to make the decisions and plans. That is wrong. It is your fault. You are wrong. Grow up. “Eve” is not the head of your life. She is the ‘suitable helper’ God made for you.

You are passing on a flawed legacy of sinful behavior. You are passing on a faulty legacy of lack of responsibility and lack of courage and lack of discernment and lack of integrity. Your sons see your behavior and reenact the story of the Garden in their own lives and marriages. Your family needs your guidance. You are raising a generation of confused children. Your sons do not know how to be men. How would they? Where would they learn it? Your daughters are not learning how to be women. How would they? Where would they learn it?

Stop playing the old script over and over again. It is a broken record. It did not work then and it will not work now. When “Eve” speaks and you know it is not God speaking; listen and obey the voice of The LORD God instead. You will be blessed. Your wife will be blessed. Your family will be blessed. The world will be blessed. The Church will be blessed. And the LORD God will be honored.
Amen
