Hello All, Grace and Peace be to you from our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.
The other day I was reading the BIBLE and trying to explain a passage of scripture from Genesis to my daughter when I came across something I had never caught before. I have read Genesis many times, but I had never seen this little nugget. Maybe one of you have, but I got excited when it came jumping out at me. Ok, I will not keep you in suspense any longer...
In Genesis 3:20 it says, And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.
Eve did not recieve her name until after the fall of mankind! She did not receive her name until after GOD had his time with the serpent, Adam and "the Woman". I was chuckling to myself asking the question, "Did Adam really call her woman before this time?" So, I checked in Genesis 2, and lo and behold what did I find? Genesis 2:23, And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. If you notice that the word "woman" is spelled with a capital W meaning it was her name.
I always ask GOD to open my mind of understanding when reading HIS WORD and this is what I recieved... Eve did not recieve her name until she was in trouble...When the world was perfect her name was "Woman", but when she sinned, she recieved her name... Now we know why we use the full name when scolding someone who is in trouble. For example, when my son is in trouble...Brandon Thoman Bragg get to your room and get it cleaned. See? The name. It is all about the name. Again, it was because of...The Woman!!!! We just can not get a break!!! LOL!!!
I hope you all enjoyed this little devotion as I did!!! LOL!!! I believe my husband did too!!LOL!!!
By the way...I appreciate all my family in CHRIST praying for me the past few days. I am feeling a bit better, but in a few days I should be fine. Thank you all so much! GOD bless you all!
