Let us recall the history of the first man in the world Adam, in which we find the image of man’s initial settlement in obedience to God. As well as man’s fall, through disobedience, from the spiritual relationship with God. Disobedience implies emancipation, separation, rebellion, empowerment, and the like. These are equivalent to man’s departure from God’s will. He was made to live with God and feed on God, and he dies once separated from God. The reality of people’s rebellion and wandering from God is present in the insistent calls of the Old Testament prophets to God’s people.
Adam is the first man in the world. God created him to populate the planet and give birth to true worshippers.We know that God started creation in the presence of the first man in the Garden of Eden. He was Adam. Adam’s disobedience brings the fall from a relationship with God and the perversion of human nature.
All men will inherit this fallen nature, damaged by separation from God through disobedience. The lifting of men from the state of disobedience will be accomplished by God sending His Son into the world. The importance of obedience as an essential element in recovering and remaining in a relationship with God is emphasized in the life and teaching of the Saviour Christ.
Who came first, God or Adam?
Genesis, the so-called genetic myth, and the creation myth are terms from mythology that explain the vast process of the world’s creation in their legendary way. The genesis myth is understood in different religions such as Chinese mythology, Egyptian mythology, Mesopotamian mythology, Persian mythology, Japanese mythology, Hindu mythology, Norse mythology, and many others that have a view and history related to this myth.
God is the one who created Adam and God has no beginning and no end. So God came before Adam.We learn that God created the world in six days and rested on the seventh day. After making the world, he gave life to a man named Adam, and from Adam’s side, he formed Eve.
How did God create Adam?
Breaking the commandment caused people to multiply through marriage since Adam disobeyed the law given by God. Therefore, all worn of Adam “is born in transgression,” falling under the condemnation of the greatest sin. So Eve, our mother, the mother of us all, gave birth in sin, that is, of pleasure. Therefore, we, too, have fallen under the curse of our mother, Eve, who says we are born in sin. Some of the Holy Fathers say that if Adam had not sinned, the human race would have multiplied by the word of God.
In the Bible, we are told that the Lord God made man of the dust of the earth, breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul.When God created man, he invested a lot in him. In the first man, Adam has invested a colossal¹ wisdom. A powerful memory surpassed the memory of all today’s gadgets, good hearing, and a remarkable ability to see. Man created by God is a creature born of God in His image and likeness.
Who was made first, Adam or Eve?
Adam worked with God. He named all the animals, all the flowers, all the birds, all the living things in the waters, all the living things on the earth, all the plants of the world, all the trees, all the riches in the heart of the earth, all the mountains, all the rivers, all the waters, all the insects, all the things on the planet. This was a great work of Adam with God. Adam knew them all by name; he was not wrong to name several creatures the same. Everything was perfect and right. After Adam finished this great work, he enjoyed God’s creatures. Therefore, everything created by God obeyed Adam, he communicated with them, and they followed his voice. So Adam was the great king of everything on earth.
Adam is the first man in the world who was created before Eve. Eve was made from the rib of her man. Satan knew well that if Adam obeyed him, it meant that Adam was serving² Him and doing his bidding.
In this case, Satan immediately takes away Adam’s right to kingship. In addition to this, he puts eternal enmity between God and Adam. But satan did not know God’s plan to save humanity and did not know that God had prepared His Son to be an unceasing sacrifice. Not only to save humanity but also to cleanse the Heavens.
Satan knew well that he could not deceive Adam because Adam was the first man in the world and was in close communication with God.
He was created in God’s image.
Adam is the father of all generations.
“The first man was from the earth, a man of dust; the second man is from heaven.”
1 Corinthians 15:47
