Adam and Eve

From.Easton's Bible Dictionary: "Adam was the first man whom God created with intelligent power to reason like Him."

Adam.(like us today).had a special spirit placed inside which allows introspection:.Proverbs 20:27; Zechariah 7:12; 12:1; 1Corinthians 2:11).

Adam was formed out of the dust of the Earth.(and hence his name), and the Creator breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and gave him dominion over all the lower creatures:.Genesis 1:26 "And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the fowl of the air and over the cattle and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth."

Genesis 2:7 "And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground.(Ecclesiastes 3:20; 12:7;).and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and man became a living soul."

He was placed after he was created, in the Garden of Eden prepared for Adam and Eve to enjoy:.Genesis 2:8-15. He was to cultivate it and to enjoy its fruits under this one prohibition:.Genesis 2:17 "Of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat of it, for in the day that you eat thereof you shall surely die.(verse doesn't mean the same day he may eat it but means the time of his presence on Earth, because Adam lived 930 years: Genesis 5:5."

Adam and Eve were curious of new things:.Ecclesiastes 7:29.

Good to be interested in new things, once you become aware of them, but curiosity can lead one into big trouble when the desire to find out is so great that one risks losing what he has in order to satisfy that curiosity. Better to be patient and wait for the Creator to bring things into one's life to enjoy them, than to be so curious that you have to overstep bounds, going hellbent to satisfy a curiousity.

The first recorded act of Adam was his giving names to the beasts of the field and the fowls of the air, which the Creator brought to him for this:.Genesis 2:19..(we see that from the beginning that the Creator was enjoying a relationship with man).

Thereafter the Lord caused a deep sleep to fall upon him and while in an unconscious state, took one of his ribs and closed up his flesh again and of this rib he made a woman whom he presented to him when he awoke. 

Adam received her as his wife and said:.Genesis 2:23 "This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh. She shall be called woman.(meaning 'weaker man'), because she was taken out of man."
   He called her Eve, because she was the mother of all living. 

Eve or 'life', 'living' was the name given by Adam to his.woman.as the original has it, because she was the mother of all living:.Genesis 3:20 "And Adam called his wife's.(original 'woman').name Eve." Genesis 4:1 "And Adam knew.(had sex with).Eve his wife and she conceived and bare Cain and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD."

When she gave birth to her first son, she said."I have gotten a man from the Lord",.(Revised Version:."I have gotten a man with the help of the Lord.").thus she welcomed Cain, realizing birth was a process the Creator had made to make new life possible.

The account of her creation is given in.Genesis 2:21,22 "And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam and he slept. And he took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh instead thereof.("instead thereof".is not in the original according to the most reliable translations). And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman and brought her unto the man."

The Creator could see that it wasn't the best for man to be alone:.Genesis 2:18 "And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone. I will make him an help meet.(or, 'fitting and able to support').for him.".(original is)

By creating for him a suitable companion, the Creator gave sanction to monogamy.

He created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Eve and Susan or Adam and Steve, but did allow polygamy.(more than one female sexual partner one could be committed to and therefor take care of her).in the Old Testament:.Genesis 2:24, "Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother and shall cleave unto his wife and they shall be one flesh."

In the New Testament we are totally free to live from our hearts and to learn what works to have an ever increasing relationship with the Father in heaven. Heaven is inside you and it's higher consciousness that lifts you to that level of living.

Having more than one physical relationship.(two women, for example or even one women with two men),.I think, would require too much effort away from a relationship with the Creator in order to have the increasing depth each physical relationship would normally  demand.

Too many women equals too little time for spiritual concerns. So, where's the priority? would be the question to answer. A quest toward a deeper relationship with the Creator and also a deepening relationship with one's partner, would seem to be the best for one hot on the spiritual path and especially so in this busy day and age.

This companion was taken from his side to signify that she was to be beside him and involved as a help in what all needed to be done; not off and away as some career woman sacrificing her love of husband and children due to an acquisitive addiction. More.

She was not taken from his head, lest she should rule over him, nor from his feet, lest he should tyrannize over her; but from his side, to denote that equality which is to subsist.(to remain or continue in existence).in the marriage state.(adaptability).

And again:.That wife/woman that is of Creator's making by special grace and of His bringing by special providence, is likely to prove the right helpmeet to her man.

Through the subtle temptation of the serpent.(story in Genesis 3:1-13).she violated the guidance given by the Creator for their good, by taking of the forbidden fruit, which she gave also unto her man Adam:.1Timothy 2:13-15 "And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing.(fulfilling her purpose as woman), if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety." 2Corinthians 11:3 "But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ."

It is very simple to always love. It cleanses all the crap.(Luke 11:41), manipulation and confusion from one's life..

In the beginning the Creator told Adam what's best for him and what wasn't. But that wasn't believed by him. Today it's different.
