In The Beginning

In the beginning, God created heaven and earth, night and day, the sky the land and sea.

Genesis 1:11

Then God said, "Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds." And it was so.

God created the creatures of all kinds in the waters, in the sky and on land.

Genesis 1:26

Then God said, "Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground."

God created male and female.

Genesis 1:29

Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.

Genesis 2:8-9

Now the Lord God had planted a garden in the east, of Eden; and there he put the man he had formed. 9 The Lord God made all kinds of trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food.

Genesis 2:15 The Lord God took the man(Adam) and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.

Genesis 2: 16-17

And the Lord God commanded the man, "You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; 17 but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die."

Adam was alone and God saw that was not good, so he brought the female of God's likeness to life.

Genesis 2:22 Then the Lord God made a woman(Eve) from the rib he had taken out of the man, and brought her to the man.

THE FALL

The one thing that goes wrong, is when Eve believes the crafty serpent and eats from the forbidden tree of knowledge. He (the serpent) convinced her that if she ate from the tree of knowledge that she would not die.

Genesis 3:4-5

4 "You will not certainly die," the serpent said to the woman.

5 "For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened and you will be like God, knowing good and evil."

Adam and Eve both ate the fruit from the forbidden tree of knowledge. In doing so, they disobeyed God's command. For this, all three of them were cursed.

~He told the serpent he would be cursed above all livestock. He will crawl on his belly and eat dust for the rest of his life.

~He told Eve, That her pains in childbearing will be very severe.

And in

~Genesis 3:17-19

To Adam he said "Because you listened to you wife and ate fruit from the tree about which I commanded you, 'You must not eat from it,' "Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat from it all the days of your life. 18 It will produce thorns and thistles for you, and you will eat the plants of the field. 19 By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground.

WOW, Adam and Eve had it all. Land, sea, dominion over all animals. Not a care in the world. They especially had The Garden of Eden. I can only imagine how beautiful and plentiful that was.

But they disobeyed Gods command. Of all the food they had available to eat, they ate the one thing they were told not to eat.
