Genesis 3:6: Satan’s Temptation in Marriage

Posted by adventbiblestudy on October 1, 2011


Genesis 3:6 KJV And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

 

 

What happened to Eve? What went through her head? She had just finished a conversation with a serpent in which she told it, “God has said, You shall not eat of it, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.” Eve just finishes telling a serpent she is going to die if she touches it, and what does she do? Does she take God’s word? There is no evidence in the Bible showing God told Eve about the tree of knowledge. The Bible shows Adam was informed of the tree before Eve was created. (Gen 2:16, 17) If Adam had the responsibility of teaching this information to Eve, it is a sign of trust God had in Adam, and a sign of love Adam had for Eve. This also illustrates the responsibility of the husband, who is to share and discuss God’s law with his wife.

The serpent tells Eve, “You shall not surely die, for God knows that in the day you eat of it, then your eyes shall be opened, and you shall be as God, knowing good and evil.” (Genesis 3:4-5 MKJV) After a few simple words from a serpent, Eve begins to look at the tree in a whole new light. We don’t know how many times Eve had passed by this tree before this meeting. Adam may have shared God’s simple commandment while standing in front of the tree. Eve was aware of the danger involved, but chose to ignore it. Instead she looked upon the tree as something to be desired. It is hard to imagine anything that carries the curse of death as pleasant, but that is how Eve saw it through her eyes.

The Bible tells us Eve looked at the tree as a source of wisdom. Instead of heeding the word of her husband, Eve was willing to risk her relationship with Adam for a forbidden desire. Did Eve know Adam would follow her into a life of sin? I’ve heard many people say, “Adam loved his wife so much, he decided it was better to join her by eating the fruit, than to be without her.” This is one speculation. Another may be, Adam fell to the same temptation Satan uses today. When one marriage partner breaks a commandment, the other feels justified. This is the cause of divorce in many marriages. One partner in the marriage is tempted by an earthly desire they look at as pleasing. She falls to a false promise of a new experience. Instead of heading for the arms of Christ is prayer, like Adam, the husband follows the example of wife, and both fall.

Like rust on a car, it begins on the inside. You don’t notice the change. It may eat away for years before any signs show on the outside. When the rust tears through it creates an unsightly hole. In marriage sin has the same result. Sin creates a hole in your heart, life, a gulf in your relationship with God, and a gap in your marriage.
