    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.
