Speaker 1

Yeah, this one. Okay, so this person says, what makes you think Satan was in the Garden of Eden as the influence of the serpent?

Speaker 2

Go ahead with that one, Tina.

Speaker 1

No, no, no. You started.

Speaker 2

No, no, no. I mean, I’ve got going to be talking a lot today, I think. Go ahead with that.

Speaker 1

Well, if you don’t mind, I’m just going to do this real quick.

Speaker 2

Pull it out.

Speaker 1

All right. I got to grab things sometimes. That’s the life of a mom, though, right? It’s just like all you do all day long. So what I would definitely say as far as why do I think Satan was in the garden? First of all, it says so in Genesis, chapter three, if you want to go there really quick. Genesis three. And it talks about the serpent. So actually, you know what, before we start opening God’s word, do you mind if we have a quick word of prayer? Oh, yes, thank you. We got so excited with the first question there. I guess it’s an important step. I know. I just don’t like to open up God’s word without praying for that day or Wednesday. Would you mind praying for us?

Speaker 2

I could. Heavenly Father, we thank you so much for getting us through another work week. And we pray that you please be with us today as we do. Open up Your word, please send your spirit to be with each of us, those of us speaking, those of us listening that your truth may be heard. And we thank you for giving us Your word that we may learn about you. This we pray in the name of your Son Jesus. Amen. Amen.

Speaker 1

Amen. Amen. So as far as the Satan being in the Garden of Eden, it’s pretty clear if you look at Genesis chapter three, verse one, and actually just read verses one and two, and it says, now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea hath God said, shall you not eat up every tree of the garden? And then it goes on to say that the woman said to the serpent, we may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden if you keep going. Sorry, in verse three, but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, Goddess said, you shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die. So basically, we see here this serpent is tempting Eve and questioning God’s word. So he’s saying, did God really say to not eat of this fruit of the tree? And Eve is saying, well, God did say, we shouldn’t eat of it. That is what God said. And then she added, like, and we can’t touch it, which is a good rule of thumb or practice to not even get near sin.

Speaker 1

But God didn’t say that. So that was a little bit of I think wife went astray, as cause she added to God’s word. But if you keep going, you know that the devil basically tempts eat to sin and then she gives her husband and they eat and they sin. There’s a very interesting promise which is actually the first prophecy speaking about Satan and this controversy between Satan, the devil and Jesus. In verse 15 it says, and I will put enmity between thee speaking of the serpent and the woman, between thy seed and her seed, it shall bruise thy head and thou shalt bruise his heel. Basically this is a prophecy of the coming Messiah who would save the human race which is Jesus Christ and the Messiah. In the process of crushing the head of the serpent, it would bruise or hurt the heel of the Son of God. And we see that on the cross. Now how do I know that the serpent is indeed the devil? Now that’s the next question because we need to know our Bible. So let’s go really quick to Revelation, chapter twelve. Just so you know, I’m not making this up.

Speaker 1

And it talks about Revelation twelve is all about this controversy between Michael who is in essence the name of Jesus before he came to the Earth and he’s fighting against the devil. And in verse seven, in Revelation twelve, verse seven, it says, and there was war in heaven. Michael and his Angels fought against the Dragon and the Dragon spot and his Angels. And in verse nine it depicts who is this Dragon. And it makes it very clear and that great Dragon was cast out, that old serpent called the devil and Satan which deceived the whole world. He was cast into the Earth and his Angels were cast out with him. So basically we know that this serpent was in the garden of Eden and he is the devil. Satan the Dragon. He has several names, all describing terrible aspects of his evil character. Satan means enemy. Devil obviously is just the evil spirit. Dragon is this terrible beast or this terrible animal and serpent, this subtle and cunning deceiving animal. And so just to show you one last verse to prove that he indeed was in Eden, I believe in the book of Ezekiel, chapter 28.

Speaker 1

Yes. And in verse 13, just basically the context of Ezekiel 28 is talking about the King of Tyre and he likens the King of Tyre to the devil. And in verse twelve it talks about that this prophecy is taken up against the King of Tyre. And in verse 13 and make it very clear in Ezekiel 28, verse 13 it says, Thou hast been an Eden, the garden of God. Every precious stone was thy covering the thardius Topaz Diamond barrel Onyx Jasper, Sethfire Emerald, carbuncle gold. The workmanship of thy tablets and of thy pipes were prepared in thee in the day thou wast created. Now when you look at this, this cannot be the King of Tyre because the King of Tyre, which is Tyre, was in Lebanon and that came about way after Eden and so it’s talking definitely about the devil and if you keep going to verse 14, it says, thou art the anointed cherub that covers. We know that Satan was once a glorious angel or cherub and he was covering in the throne of God he was the closest to God any angel could be. But he fell because if you keep reading it was because he let his beauty get to himself and he had pride and so was the devil at Eden.

Speaker 1

Yes, absolutely no question about it. And that’s why, sadly, he was tempted into sin and essence tempted her husband into sin as well. So that’s it nice.

Speaker 2

Very thorough. The only thing, man, if there’s just one more verse I would add is Jesus said that Satan is the father of all lies.

Speaker 1

Yes.

Speaker 2

And so the lie in Eden Satan was the father of it even more evidence that it’s all from him. Absolutely.
