What Happened in the Garden of Eden? Part 45

This entry is part 45 of 48 in the series What Happened in the Garden of Eden?

Knowing the origin of sin was Satan, that all angels (spirit beings with no human bodies) are masculine in gender, and that Christ always “pleased the Father” be it before, during, or after creation and that Eve was the second generation creation; just what was Eve’s part in the sin of Adam, 2 Timothy 2:12-15? Always keep in mind that with God there were NO SURPRISES!! What we see in the creation account was all apart of a carefully laid part of the “mystery of the ages.” God NEVER REACTS, HE ALWAYS ACTS, all was planned even allowing man to use free will!!
Did woman in general EVER have a specific covenant/command with God before Christ instituted His New Testament?? (By spiritual, I mean to have a covenant that bound the soul and spirit to obedience). I know there were specific women who had a specific, individual covenants with God like Eve, Sarah, Lot’s wife, Rebecca, and Mary, the Lord’s mother; but was woman EVER allowed spiritual communion with God before Christ or did that have to wait until Christ?? It had to wait on Christ!! When woman obeyed, it was through man that she obeyed, not directly to God!! “And God blessed them (Adam and Eve), saying, be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish (male’- to fill) the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion (Adam and Eve) over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moves upon the earth.” Genesis 1:28 {Do men and women, today, have dominion over every living thing? Absolutely, not; don’t try and take on a Lion, Cheetah, or a Whale!} God gave to Adam and Eve the command to pro-generate, Eve was created so Adam would have the means to accomplish this “mystery”, but BOTH were commanded, but again, without Adam, Eve could never have fulfilled this command!! Eve was the ONLY woman ever to receive the command to multiply and replenish (just like Sarah, Rebecca, and Mary, the Lord’s mother had specific commands.) With the way men and women are acting today, one might think they think they are under this command. They have no hesitancy about having sex with every man or woman that is “interested in them and brag about it.”
This brings up an interesting question, did the Patriarchs or High Priest offer animal sacrifices for women or just for those who had a sealed covenant with God? Was salvation offered in any covenant previous to Christ? Was the woman’s soul inferior to man’s or did they ALL have to wait the death of Christ? Did the Jewish High priest offer sacrifices for the Gentiles? No!! The Patriarchal offerings were so much superior to the Jewish. The Patriarch offered “looking forward” to the blood of Christ being shed while the Jewish offered “looking back” on sins still against themselves!! In Egypt, during the passover, the father had to put the blood of the slain Lamb on the post or lintel of their OWN house!! (It seems like fathers have forgotten this, today. Unfortunately for their children, they expect someone else to teach their children, religion!!) If the High Priest of Israel offered ONLY for those born of Jewish mothers, circumcised the eighth day who kept the laws and commandments given them, who offered for women?? Answer, no one. Did woman sin? Surely, for “all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23 How did they sin, you might ask? They were human, and all human beings had the “law of the conscience.” Romans 2:14 Well, who offered sacrifices for them? No one. Do you still think this was all just a mistake? Did God change things, reacting not acting or were they PLANNED? “Known unto God are all His works from the beginning of the world.” Acts 15:18 Who offered for woman? Christ! 1 Timothy 2:15 tells us: “Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.” It took 62 generations of women to bring Christ into the world. Paul relates in Revelation 12:1 “And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun (the brightest light of all time-the Christ was being birthed by a woman, Romans 5:2), and the moon (the lesser light would have been the Mosaic Law) under (the covenant of Christ was far superior to the law of Moses) her feet and upon her head a crown (the stephanos-a crown of royalty 2 Timothy 4:8), of twelve (number of the chosen apostles) stars (the source of the given light). And she being with child cried travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.”Revelation 12:1-2 Christ was born and salvation has “appeared unto all men.” His blood flowed backward to Eden and forward to the end of time!! Thank God for His great “mystery’!!
