Wesley's Notes for Genesis 3:10


3:10 I heard thy voice in the garden: and I was afraid - Adam was afraid because he was naked; not only unarmed, and therefore afraid to contend with God, but unclothed and therefore afraid so much as to appear before him.

    Robert; It is forbidden for men to add to or change or take away from the Word of God! You are saying things out of your own imagination, or are listening to false teachers; but whatever the case, they are NOT what the Scripture says! The LORD God said, Thou shalt NOT! For in the day you eat thereof YOU SHALL SURELY DIE! Not, Well, maybe later; but, THOU SHALT NOT! That's how sin deceives!
  • ROBERT
    GOD put those two trees so that at the appointed time Adam and Eve were to eat from its fruits, and they did eat before the appointed time... 1.the tree of life was suppose to be eaten and they live forever, that's what GOD wanted 2. As for the tree of knowledge of good and evil was to be taken by Adam to Judge satan later in the course of his life. that is the main reason why GOD put those trees.
  • A disciple
    Jeff; that is such an important point, and what all history and the whole need of our redemption hinges upon. Have you also wondered why the man and his wife were not killed outright upon their disobedience? Look closely at the Trial and Proceedings: God heard the testimony of the man and his wife of what all happened, and God judged the devil; pronouncing his eternal doom by the coming of Christ.
  • Jeff Berry
    Adam's death that day was spiritual. He also began to die physically. Blessings!
  • Russell fleenor
    But God said that the day they eat of the tree they will surely die but they didn't die, they ate and what the serpent said was correct, they didn't die and they knew good and evil.
  • Welcome
    How great is our God amen.
