They Saw the Light - Adam and Eve - Part 2

Come into my heart
Come into my heart
Come into my heart, Lord Jesus
Come into today
Come in to stay
Come into my heart, Lord Jesus.

"Clothed in the skins of divinely sacrificed animals, the two (Adam and Eve) walked away from the Author of Life and His intimate presence into the darkness of a world that had now been introduced to sin.  They saw no hope.  The voice of their Master, Creator and Friend was hidden by their own inner voices of confusion.

As they exited the garden which was their home, they remembered once more the words which had been uttered when their disobedience was uncovered.  It was a word spoken to one who had tempted and deceived them.  It was a curse spoken by the Creator; but in it was a PROMISE—the only word which now gave them hope." *

“So the LORD God said to the serpent: "Because you have done this, you are cursed more than all cattle, and more than every beast of the field; on your belly you shall go, and you shall eat dust all the days of your life.  And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel"(Genesis 3:14-15). 

Adam and Eve were given a promise.  A day would come when this tempter would be destroyed by a divinely anointed deliverer.  In the midst of their darkness they saw light.
