the Satan in the garden of Eden? – some people can ask such a question.
Yes, in Ezek.28:13-20 it is told: «Thou hast been in Eden the garden of
God; every precious stone was thy covering …the workmanship of thy tabrets and
of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created…Thine
heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by
reason of thy...». The
Satan in the image of a serpent was incredibly beautiful.
it and feeling himself superior to all the other angels and insufficiently
appreciated the Satan wanted the power. He tried several times to establish the
domination in the heaven, by plunging in doubt the trustful angels with his lie.
But now another opportunity appeared. The Most High created the man to worship
him. The Satan was thirsty that somebody worshipped him; he wanted to have the
same glory, as the Most High. But it was unreal to force Adam to worship him.
When Eve was created, he understood, that she would not worship him as well, as
the nature of the first people was divine: they were children of
God. He knew that if people would be his children, they would worship
him. And, thus, he could win earth from God, so God himself would begin to envy
him. The successor was necessary, and the Satan began to execute his foul plan.
Bible tells that as soon as Adam and Eve ate a forbidden fruit, their eyes
opened, they saw, that they are nude and sewed them the girdles. They did not
cover the mouths, because ate something dirty. No, they covered the parts of the
body, which participated in a sin, namely: their sexual organs. When God found
out about the sin, he, damning the serpent said: «And I will put enmity between
thee and the woman and between thy seed and her seed...». And addressing to
Eve, said: «I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow
thou shalt bring forth children». See Eve and the serpent are judged by God for
a sin, and the speech goes about the seed and about pregnancy. What is Adam
blamed for? “Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast
eaten of the tree...» (3:17).
But why isn't it said in the Bible about Eve's fall? Firstly, allegory is frequently used in the Bible. So think over the following saying: « Such is the way of an adulterous woman; she eateth, and wipeth her mouth, and saith, I have done no wickedness » (Prov.30:20). Isn't it a speech about the forbidden fruit? And secondly: with the help of allegory God hid from the people until last days, that, when in the Bible it is spoken about «the children of the kingdom » and «the children of the wicked one » (Mat.13:38), about «father the devil» (John 8:44), about « children of God » and « children of the Devil » (1John 3:10) and so on, it is not only the question of moral principals, but also about real devil genealogy, the blood line of Satan.
So, the sin was accomplished. Eve was tempted by Satan, and his seed was in her, when God spoke about the enmity between the Satan's seed and human's one. What happened further? Eve gave birth to Cain and said: «I have gotten a man from the LORD». (Eve was sure that the Satan was God!). Abel was born later.
