THE EFFECTS OF THE FALL OF MAN
The Fall of Man came as a result of disobedience, Adam ate the fruit God asked him not to eat and so God banished him from the Garden of Eden where they were supposed to live eternally with Him, immediately placed on the east side of the Garden of Eden cherubim and flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life. Genesis 3:22-24
THREE EFFECTS OF THE FALL OF MAN
1) Recognition of Sin by disobedience – Sin came as a result of Adam’s disobedience to God’s order where Man ate the fruit of good and evil, hence man was separated from God. Adam listened to his wife Eve when she gave him the fruit that they were asked not to eat, for Eve was deceived by the serpent, telling her that God knows when they eat of the fruit they will be like Him knowing good and evil. Genesis 3:4-5.
2) Man lost fellowship with the Father – God always went to meet Adam in the cool evening almost every time, but when Adam and Eve’s eyes were open they noticed that they were both naked and were afraid. That fellowship was interrupted Gen 3:7 Man no longer had that relationship again for several years up until Jesus came to redeem man back to himself again.
3)Spiritual and Physical death – Man died a spiritual death when He couldn’t relate with God as usual because of separation, while the physical death was when God said you shall not eat it nor shall you touch it, lest you die Gen 3:3. This now confirms the “ You shall surely die, meaning Man’s days on earth automatically shortening and God reminding himself that if a man stays longer in the Garden of Eden He will eat of the tree of life and become like him to live forever and so He banished Man.
All the ripple effects happening to man to date were caused by Man but thank God for sending Jesus in the gap to bring Man back to fellowship again.
