Consequences of the disobedience of Adam and Eve:

In this article, we will continue on the effects or consequences that resulted from the disobedience of Adam and Eve. In case you missed the first 3 consequences, please click here to read on them.

Below are the consequences of Adam and Eve’s disobedience starting from the 4th

 

  • Suffering, Pain and Death was introduced into man’s world

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.

You will have to work hard and sweat to make the soil produce anything, until you go back to the soil from which you were formed. You were made from the soil and you will become soil again.

Genesis 3:19

 

  • The first prophesy was made

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:

I will make you and the woman hate each other; her offspring and yours will always be enemies. Her offspring will crush your head, and you will bite her offspring’s heel.

Genesis 3:15

Notice that the above prophesy is directed to the woman, and it applies to her offspring. 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.

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.”

Luke 1:30-31

When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby moved within her. Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit and said in a loud voice, “You are the most blessed of all women, and blessed is the child you will bear! Why should this great thing happen to me, that my LORD’s mother comes to visit me?”

Luke 1:41-43

 

  • Clothing was made by God

After Adam and Eve committed sin, they realized they were naked.

He answered, “I heard you in the garden; I was afraid and hid from you, because I was naked.”

Genesis 3:10

And the LORD God made clothes out of animal skins for Adam and his wife, and he clothed them.

Genesis 3:21

 

  • Paradise was temporarily lost

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.

So the LORD God sent him out of the Garden of Eden and made him cultivated the soil from which he had been formed. Then at the east side of the garden, he put living creatures and a flaming sword which turned in all directions. This was to keep anyone from coming near the tree that gives life.

Genesis 3:23-24

Note: The Garden of Eden is sometimes referred to as paradise.

 

  • Man's disobedience brought about the revelation of Jesus and the re-opening of 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.”

Luke 1:30-31

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 and 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 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.

And he said to Jesus, “Remember me, Jesus when you come as King!” Jesus said to him, “I promise you that today you will be in paradise with me.”

Luke 23:42-43
