"Wherefore, as by one man, sin entered into the world, and death by sin: and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned."
GOD created man (Adam), then later took a rib from his side and made him a Help-meet and called her name "Eve" which means "the mother of all living". (Gen. 2:20-25) "And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an Help-meet for him. And the LORD GOD caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept; and HE took one of the ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the LORD GOD had taken from the man, made HE a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, 'This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore, shall a man leave his father and his mother and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.' And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and they were not ashamed."
NOTICE: Eve was taken from Adam's side: not from his head, to rule over him: not from his feet to be trampled under him, but from under his heart, to be loved, cherished and protected by him. This is also a beautiful picture of CHRIST and HIS bride (the Church) the "Church" was born from the wounded side of CHRIST. (Eph. 5:28-33) "So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the LORD, the church. For we are members of HIS body, of HIS Flesh, and HIS Bones. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. This is a great mystery; but I speak concerning CHRIST and the church. Nevertheless, let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband."
What was Adam and Eve's condition, standing, etc., in GOD's sight, right after Creation?
(1) We know Adam was an adult with great knowledge, for he gave names to all the cattle, to all different fowls and birds of the air, to every creeping thing, and to all the beasts of the field Think about that! Could you give names to 100 things without associating them with something similar? Try it! (2) We know that Adam and Eve had fellowship with GOD, HIMSELF, for GOD walked with them. (Gen. 3:8) "And they heard the voice of the LORD GOD walking in the garden in the cool day; and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD GOD amongst the trees of the garden." (3) They lived in the beautiful Garden of Eden. (4) They could eat all the fruits of the Garden except the tree of the knowledge of Good and Evil. Adam's responsibility was to dress and keep the beautiful Garden. (Gen. 2:15) "And the LORD GOD took the man, and put him into the Garden of Eden to dress it and keep it." Also (Gen. 1:28) "And GOD blessed them, and GOD said unto them, 'Be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth, and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth." Does this sound like the monkeys and cavemen that the evolutionists have our ancestors coming from?
Adam, the first man, was made a living SOUL, (I Cor. 15:45) "And so it is written, The last man Adam was made a quickening SPIRIT."
