Verse Genesis 4.25 Adam Made Love T

Ariya Ybarra opinion on Verse Genesis 4.25 Adam Made Love T

Adam and his wife Eve were the first human beings created by God on the 6th day of creation before rest. They were created in God's own image and likeness, and given the power to rule over all living creature on Earth. Being in God's image and likeness made mankind the most special and favoured creature of God's creation, to an extent He entrusted them to look after his work of art. He gave them the permission to have whatever pleases them in the beautiful garden of Eden, but strongly warned them against moving close to or eating from the fruits of the tree in the middle of the garden. Mankind was further instructed to bear children of their own,as many as they could, and spread all over the world. There were no toiling nor death of mankind and we see the relationship between God and man was so strong.

However, we see man falling into temptation and disobeying the Lord's command of not eating from the fruit of the tree in the middle of the garden of Eden. This really upsets God and he punishes Adam and Eve for their disobedience. Earlier on, we don't see Adam and his wife having to toil the land for food nor being attacked by any animal. Instead, they had ready fruits and seeds for food and all animals respected and brought no harm upon them. Upon sinning however, we see God not only driving them out of the Garden of Eden but also cursing them. Man now had to start farming the lands for food and

He made the child-bearing process very painful for Eve.

It was during this time that Adam's wife,Eve, gave birth to Cain and Abel. Cain,who was the first born, was a farmer and his younger brother, Abel, was a shepherd. The two brothers used to burn their offerings to the Lord at the same time, though in different alters. Since Abel used to offer his best flocks as offering, the Lord looked at his offering with a lot of favour, unlike his brothers. This made his brother Cain angry and jealous of him to a point he ended up killing Abel. God was so unhappy with Cain that he cursed him out of the land and made him a wanderer.

We see Adam and Eve having another son, Seth to replace the loss of Abel. This is a sign of hope for Adam and Eve from God, being they had lost both their sons.-Abel dead and Cain an outcast. The birth of Seth marked the continuity of Adam's lineage as Seth went further and had a son and descendants. This verse shows how God is merciful and forgiving, despite the sin we have committed against him. It a lesson to Christians not to give up in life despite the hurdles they could be going through in life. If Adam and Eve would have let the weight of losing Abel weigh them down they would not have had Seth.

Lord sees our hope and faith in life and he surely rewards us for it as seen in this context.
