What should I learn from this chapter?

  • The first commandment in scripture is in Genesis, the first book of the Bible “Do NOT eat of the fruit of the tree in the middle of the garden”. The last commandment is in Revelation, the last book of the Bible, “Do NOT take the mark of the beast” Rev 14:11 .
  • The first prophecy in scripture is in Genesis 3 which points directly to Jesus’ interaction with the Pharisees and specifically “the unforgivable sin”.
  • About the headline: “prof” is like professor, shortened to prof/proph es and cee pronounced “prophecy”.

Genesis 3

The Temptation and Fall of Man

Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent was more cunning (crafty, manipulative) than any beast of the field which the Lord (Yĕhovah) God (Elohiym) had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God (Elohiym) indeed said (Did He really really say?), ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?”
Genesis 3:2-3 And the woman said to (answered) the serpent, “We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden; but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God (Elohiym) has said, ‘You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.’ ”
  • Before Adam and Eve sinned, even before God created the heavens and the earth, God knew all that would happen. The Father already had a solution: the death of His only begotten perfectly sinless Son.
    • Revelation 13:8
      All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
  • From the foundation of the world, the plan had been laid, the covenant was made and could not be broken.
Genesis 3:4-5 Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. 5 For God (Elohiym) knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened and you will be like God (Elohiym), knowing good and evil.”
Genesis 3:6-7 So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate.
Genesis 3:7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened,
Genesis 3:7b and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves coverings.
Genesis 3:8 And they heard the sound of the Lord (Yĕhovah) God (Elohiym) walking in the garden in the cool (literally: Spirit) of the day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden.
Genesis 3:9 Then the Lord (Yĕhovah) God (Elohiym) called to Adam and said to him, “Where are you?”
Genesis 3:10 So he (Adam) said, “I heard Your (God’s) voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid myself.”
Genesis 3:11 And He said, “Who told you that you were naked?
Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you that you should not eat?”
Genesis 3:12 Then the man said, “The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I ate.”
Genesis 3:13 And the Lord (Yĕhovah) God (Elohiym) said to the woman, “What is this you have done?”
The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”

THE PROPHECY OF JESUS, THE VIRGIN MARY, AND THE UNFORGIVABLE SIN

Genesis 3:14-15 So the Lord (Yĕhovah) God (Elohiym) said to the serpent:
“Because you have done this, you are cursed more than all cattle, and more than every beast of the field; on your belly you shall go, and you shall eat dust all the days of your life.
Genesis 3:15 And I (God) will put enmity (war) between you (Satan) and the woman (from the line of Eve all the way to Mary),
And between your (Satan’s) seed (descendants) and her (Eve’s) Seed;
  • The serpent is none other than the devil, Satan. Does the serpent or the devil have “seed” ie descendants? If so, who is the serpents “seed”?
    • Jesus points to the Scribes and Pharisees as “Satan’s Seed”:
      • John 8:44
        You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.
He (Eve’s descendant from the virgin Mary, Jesus) shall bruise your head (destroy Satan’s authority),
  • But women do not have “seed”. In scripture only men have “seed”. Therefore; this is the first statement of a miraculous birth; that a virgin will give birth (have the “seed” of a Male Figure).
    • Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel.
  • Jesus will “bruise” the head of the serpent ie the dragon which has seven heads at the end of the seven year tribulation. The last, or seventh head, is the Antichrist, indwelt by Satan aka the “Leviathan”.
    See Genesis chapter 3 – The Leviathan
    • Isaiah 27:1
      Israel Will Be Restored
      In that day (at Jesus’ return) the Lord with His severe sword, great and strong, Will punish Leviathan the fleeing serpent, Leviathan that twisted serpent; And He will slay (remove the head of) the reptile that is in the sea (of people).
  • The kingdom of the Antichrist is the feet of iron and clay on Nebuchadnezzar’s statue in Daniel 2:33-34, 41-42. The ten kings who give their power to this beast are the ten toes on the statue. Jesus is the “rock” who strikes this kingdom, destroys it, and lets it grow into a mountain of a kingdom ruling the entire world.
and you (the serpent) shall (have previously) bruise(d) His (Jesus’) heel (authority)
  • Both the head and the heel symbolize authority, the first is a leader, the second steps on the neck of the leader, conquering his position.”
  • Satan’s attempt to kill Jesus becomes a non-deadly assault because it is a vain and an unsuccessful attempt to keep Jesus in the grave.
    • Psalm 2:1 Why do the (gentile) nations rage (the Romans),
      And the people (the Jewish leaders) plot (consort together) a vain (empty, impossible, useless) thing? (To kill Jesus and keep Him in the grave).
  • Both Eve’s Seed (Jesus) and Satan’s seed (the Scribes and Pharisees) have a confrontation concerning Jesus’ parentage when they announce to Him and accuse Him:
    • John 8:41
      You do the deeds of your father.” Then they said to Him, “We were not born of fornication; we have one Father—God.”
  • In summary, they are aware of the rumors concerning Mary and call Jesus “the Son of fornication” denouncing any thought that He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and is the Son of God the Father. This is the unforgivable sin: one either believes in the virgin birth by the Holy Spirit, or…like the Pharisees, believes Jesus is the son of fornication. There are no other choices. Jesus announces:
    • Matthew 12:31
      The Unforgivable Sin
      “Therefore I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven men (neither in this age nor in the age to come).
  • Genesis 3:15 is the first prophecy in scripture foretelling the redemptive plan of God.
  • @Prophecy Fulfillment Alert: Gal 4:4-5, Matt 1:18 (Seed of a woman – virgin birth) (Old Testament prophecy fulfilled by Jesus) Reminder: Women don’t have “seed”. Only men have “seed”. Therefore it speaks of a “virgin” birth for the seed of a woman.
    • John 8:44 You (Pharisees) are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.
    • I John 3:8 He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.
    • Hebrews 2:14 Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil,
Genesis 3:16 To the woman He said: “I will greatly multiply your sorrow and your conception; In pain you shall bring forth children; Your desire shall be for your husband, And he shall rule over you.”
Genesis 3:17-19 Then to Adam He said, “Because you have heeded the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree of which I commanded you, saying, ‘You shall not eat of it’:
Genesis 3:18-19 “Cursed is the ground for your sake (because of you);
In toil (hard work, sweat) you shall eat of it (from it) all the days of your life.
  • Life is now hard for Adam and Eve; if life gets easy it’s man’s sin nature to bend toward misusing God’s blessings for his own sin filled purposes.
Genesis 3:18 Both thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you,
  • When Jesus emptied Himself of His Godhead, He became a man and as a man, He endured the curse of the thorns when the Roman soldiers put a crown of thorns on His head.
    When Abraham began to offer up Isaac as a sacrifice, the ram substitute was the shadow of the sacrifice to come whose own head was caught in thicket of thorns. [Ref Genesis 22:16]
  • Jesus hung naked on the cross.
    Thistles and thorns is a symbol of desolation or wilderness. Thistles grow in any naked piece of land. They love to takeover in a vacuum of greenery. God is where life is (greenery), but troubles (thistles) spring up in a vacuum.
  • He who wore the thorns reversed the curse of the thorns.
Genesis 3:18 And you shall eat the herb of the field.
Genesis 3:19 In the sweat of your face (stress) you shall eat bread (literally: bread/meat/food) till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for dust you are, and to dust (red clay) you shall return.”
Genesis 3:20 And Adam called his wife’s name Eve, because she was the mother of all living.
  • Eve is the mother of ALL living. This excludes theories of other wives predating Eve or other children.
Genesis 3:21 Also for Adam and his wife the Lord God (Yĕhovah Elohiym) made tunics of skin, and clothed (covered) them.
Genesis 3:22-24 Then the Lord (Yĕhovah) God (Elohiym) said, “Behold, the man has become like one of Us (plural),
Genesis 3:22 to know good and evil. And now, lest he put out his hand and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever”— 23 therefore the Lord (Yĕhovah) God (Elohiym) sent him out of the garden of Eden to till the ground from which he was taken.
Genesis 3:24 So He drove out the man; and He placed cherubim (angels) at the east of the garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life (vs the tree of good and evil).
