I really wanted to make the title of this blog “the fall of the man” but for SEO (Search Engine Optimization) purposes I had to make it less precise and call it the fall of man. When most folks hear the words the fall of man they tend to think “the fall of man-kind, or perhaps, the fall of human-kind. Really, the fall of man-kind is not bad; if, it were understood as eesh-kind or male-kind, but it takes time to train our mind to think in those terms. This is a subtle distinction, but one that we must embrace if we want to understand the instructions which Yehovah gave through Moses.
After the fall of man, Yehovah came to the garden. Who was it that He called to? Did Yehovah ever talk to the woman before she had disobeyed her man? What did Yehovah tell her?
The first time the man, “the adam” is called “Adam” with no definite article “the” before it, was after the fall when Yehovah was pronouncing on him the consequence for listening to his woman and not obeying His Elohim.
Now man has become “like one of us” … – what is that about? There is no “us”!
And what is Yehovah saying when He tells the serpent that He will put enmity between his seed and the woman’s seed? Does a woman have seed? Does a snake have seed that we need to worry about? Perhaps this seed is spiritual seed, and we need some better understandings from the words which Yehovah spoke through His prophets. I am going to suggest a possible answer which will not agree with the doctrines and traditions of men that most “Christians” and “Messianics” want to believe.
Finally, who was it that was kicked out of the garden after the fall of man? You may be surprised to find out. Remember: As “bone of his bone and flesh of his flesh” – she, is he!
So much to learn, so little time; and this is just the third chapter.
I delight to do Your will, O my Elohim (my only lawmaker and judge), and Your Torah is within my heart.” (Psa 40:8)
