Below are the consequences of Adam and Eve’s disobedience starting from the 4th
While in the Garden, man was made to live forever. Death had no place in God’s Garden of Eden. When man disobeyed God, they were driven out of the garden to another place where they became exposed to suffering, pain and death.
God himself made the first prophesy in the bible when he pronounced judgment on the woman as a result of her disobedience. This prophesy was a sign of hope to come at the appointed time.
The prophesy states thus:
Notice that the above prophesy is directed to the woman, and it applies to her offspring (singular).
The woman to whom this prophesy is directed to is Mary and her offspring is Jesus.
Jesus crushed the head of satan (whom was represented by the snake in Genesis 3:14) by virtue of his death on the cross of Calvary.
After Adam and Eve committed sin, they realized they were naked.
God in His Love made clothes for them out of animal skin.
After Adam and Eve had disobeyed God, they became unworthy of the Garden. God sent them out of the garden as a result of their disobedience.
Note: The Garden of Eden is sometimes referred to as paradise.
The angel said to her, “Don’t be afraid, Mary; God has been gracious to you. You will become pregnant and give birth to a son, and you will name him Jesus.”
Without and doubt, this is the biggest consequence of man’s sin (sin of disobedience). In fact this consequence outweighs the sin itself; since it flowed from obedience, love, humility and mercy in the person of Jesus Christ.
Come to think of it, do you think Jesus would have been revealed if man had not sinned and became death worthy?
For this reason, scholars will regard the disobedience of Adam and Eve as a "sweet fall". It was this fall that revealed the love, mercy and justice of God.
The main purpose of the coming of Jesus was to save all human beings from death; which he successfully accomplished by shedding his precious blood on the cross of Calvary.
Jesus justified man with his humiliations, beatings, sorrows, pains and eventually, His death. It was the death of Jesus that opened paradise once again.
