Elohim created the seed-bearing trees and plants in order for them to produce seed after their own kind. Thus, Adam was created with the righteousness of the Creator. Adam was to be one with his Helper and reproduce seed after that same Kind—the seed of Righteousness. Adam wouldn’t know all the knowledge or wisdom of the earth, but only Elohim and what He would reveal to His seed.
Part of Adam’s own body was planted into another creature called woman. This was a picture—the Creator planted part of Himself into man as he was created in Elohim’s own image. Similarly, the woman was not created as a replacement of Elohim or man, rather she was made as an example of the relationship that all men and women were to have with the Creator as His helpmate.
Instead of hearing the voice of Elohim, man listened to the voice of the woman, thus allowing her to be the voice of an elohim/master to him. This was only after woman had done the same by allowing the serpent to be the voice of her master instead of heeding the voice of her husband and the Creator. The serpent had already fallen from a place of helper and covering (Ez. 28) as he embodied haSatan/the adversary and was bent on taking the Master’s attention off of His new helper, the one that was to tend the place of Paradise, a former job description of the fallen one.
Since the adversary could not gain acceptance in the eyes of Elohim, he desired to create man in his fallen image by passing along the seed of sin, causing man to be separated from the Creator. By passing along his seed of unrighteousness into the creation of the earth, the adversary removed inherent righteousness from the earth which caused a cycle of predetermined events to proceed; all of which would need the interjections of YHVH’s perfection for redemption to take place. Until then, the fall of man would be echoed into every human birth.
The curses that Elohim pronounced would be handed down to every generation causing a rift between the Creator and his creation.
Adam and Chavah/Eve were cursed along with the serpent so that death would certainly come upon them and all of humanity. This death would endure in two forms; separation from Elohim in life and in eternity, and physical, perpetual decay that would strike every living thing. However, in that curse, there was a revealed hope. Even though the serpent’s seed would bruise man’s heel, it would be man’s heel that would bruise/crush the adversary’s head. The promise of hope was given by the same curse. This is the Covenant that Elohim established with Adam—his heel would prevail over his enemy.
Adam and Chavah’s expectation of this curse was so great that they would name their first son Cain literally meaning begotten one. As a foreshadow of the Begotten One, Messiah, their hope was fixed on a great deliverance from their own transgression.
The seed of the serpent is still alive to this day. Like a roaring lion, the enemy still consumes man by his own evil seed that was planted in the garden, taking root in the earth and being reaped in today’s culture.
Fortunately, we have the Righteous Seed that is from YHVH Elohim. It can be traced through Abraham who believed and was promised a Seed that would bless all the nations of the earth. While the enmity between man and the serpent still exists, we have been given victory over the adversary by the Life of Messiah who is the promised One that has crushed the enemy’s plans and will completely crush his head at the end of days. Until then, we have His same power. His blood has ransomed us from the curse of the Law of sin and death. Moreover, His power within us, through His Ruach HaKodesh/Holy Spirit, provides us with the ability to overcome denying and overcoming away the enemy and our own flesh. What was once a curse upon man, woman, and the serpent has become a blessing and fulfilled by His Covenant to all of us who believe and call upon the name of Yeshua our Salvation.
Dwell upon Galatians 3:18-19, “For if the inheritance is based on law [Torah], it is no longer based on a promise; but YHVH has granted it to Abraham by means of a promise. Why the Law [of sin and death] then? It was added because of transgressions, having been ordained through angels by the agency of a mediator, until the Seed would come to whom the promise had been made.”
