The Real Reason God Made Adam And Eve Leave The Garden Of Eden.
Many of us have read Genesis and the story of the creation of Adam and Eve, and the Garden of Eden. Genesis 1:26-27 Then God said " Let us make man in our image, according to our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the sky and over the cattle, and over the earth, and everything that creeps over everything on the earth. God created man in His own image, in the image of God, He created them, male and female.
We know what comes next, Adam and Eve both eat from the Tree of Knowledge. The tree which gave them the knowledge to know the difference between good and evil. Is that the reason that God made Adam and Eve leave the Garden of Eden? Many people say " Yes" However, according to Genesis 3:22-24 The the Lord said " Behold the man has become LIKE one of us. Knowing good and evil; and now, he might stretch out his hand, and also take from the Tree of Life and live forever. Therefore, the Lord God sent him out from the Garden of Eden to cultivate the ground from which he was taken. So He drove the man out; and at the east of the Garden of Eden He stationed the Cherubim and the Flaming Sword, the way to guard the Tree of Life.
Now, in Genesis 2:9 Out of the ground the Lord God caused to grow every tree that is pleasing to the sight and good for food, the tree of Life, and the tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.
Both of these trees were in the Garden of Eden. The only one Adam and Eve were not allowed to eat was the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, but they had not been told not to eat from the Tree that would make them live forever.
What is interesting however, is that God created man "In our image" Image in the dictionary can be defined as one that closely resembles another object. Or an optically duplicate counterpart, especially an optical reproduction formed by a mirror. God also said " Man has become like one of us" In the dictionary one of the meanings of the word "Like" is equivalent or equal. But, ( us) also means ( more then one) perhaps God was talking to the Angels
When Adam and Eve ate from the Tree of Knowledge, was that the reason they were taken out of the Garden of Eden? While reading Genesis, it seems as though the true reason Adam and Eve they were taken out of the Garden was because they had " Become LIKE one of us". God had to prevent, them from eating anything from the Tree of Life. God even stationed guards to the entrances to the Garden of Eden. The Cherubim and The Flaming Sword. The Cherub is a winged angel in the second order of angels and the Flaming Sword means To Guard. So, the Garden of Eden was guarded extremely well. Nobody could ever get close to the Tree of Life.
So, at first God Created Adam and Eve "In Our image", but after Adam and Eve ate from the Tree of Knowledge God said " Man has become like one of us". Is that the real reason God made Adam and Eve leave the Garden of Eden?
