WISDOM TAUGHT ME… 23rd of September, 2019


What might that be?

The Woman was wrong to have sat discussing with the serpent. She discussed with the serpent until he lured her to eat the forbidden fruit. I want to guess here that the woman after eating the fruit must have lured or persuaded Adam to eat that forbidden fruit. I guess the devil stepped aside after winning the woman’s heart to eat the fruit, leaving her to persuade her husband.

Even Apostle Paul affirmed: “And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression.” I Timothy 2:14 NKJV. The Woman was DECIEVED, and fell. Then, she made the man eat the same fruit. Look at the trend, when GOD asked the man; ‘have you eaten from the three I told you not to eat?’ Adam didn’t say the serpent gave it to him, he said: “… The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.” Genesis 3:12. But when GOD asked the woman, ‘what have you done?!’ She said; “… The serpent beguiled {or DECIEVED} me, and I did eat.” Genesis 3:13.

The serpent DECIEVED the Woman to eat the fruit, and the Woman made the Man eat the same. When GOD was to punish the Man, He punished him because he heeded his wife’s suggestion without fighting it as the Leader in that home. “And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto THE VOICE OF THY WIFE, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life.” Genesis 3:17. He should have refused the fruit vehemently. GOD cursed him, and the woman…and they were driven out of Eden.

Adam could blame the woman for their predicament. He could grow forever bitter towards her. They were cursed, and we’re being barnished from the garden. In the middle of that commotion, Adam changed the Woman’s name to Eve. “And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.” Genesis 3:20. Adam could still see a glorious future in his wife. He changed her name from “taken-out-of-man” Woman, into “Mother-of-all-living” Eve.

You and I too can learn to forgive our spouses. Blaming one another about the mistake we both made won’t help us, it doesn’t matter who started the error. We won’t make progress if we are fighting our spouses. Notice something significant here. The moment Adam changed her name to Eve, Mother-of-all-living, GOD showed up to cover the two of them! He removed leaves from them and gave them leather clothings to cover their nakedness (their shame). He gave them a longlasting covering. “And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living. Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them.” Genesis 3:20-21.

I see GOD fixing that problem for your family. He will step in to remould your broken home. Drop the boxing glove. Stop attacking and accusing one another. Blaming yourselves for the wrong any one in between you caused won’t allow you to see your glorious future. And you would be making it hard for GOD to help you. GOD knows exactly what to do to solve your marital problems. He will clothe you and your wife. He will cover your shame with His own covering. In fact, for your shame, He would give you double honor. Learn, at least, this one thing from Adam. May GOD bless, cover, and protect your home in Jesus name.
