He Has You Covered, Part 2of3, Evans Olang

Posted on Updated on


Genesis 3:1-21, “The Lord God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them”

A garment is a type of coat or robe especially used for official purposes. In Genesis after the fall of man, Adam and Eve having had knowledge of their nakedness moved to cover themselves by making for themselves clothing out of leaves. When men fell, 1. Immediately they knew they had failed God, 2. They discovered they were naked and 3. They developed a need to hide. We understand that there are things as human beings we can do on our own and might work but the truth is, it will not last for long. They had leaves covering them not realizing that leaves would soon dry up and fall off. So man tries so hard to cover his nakedness only for it to work but for a season. The bible tells me that there are things that if God does not do, anything someone else will do will be in vain. Psalm 127:1, “Except the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain that build it: Except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh in vain”. I would say that this verse means that anything you are going to do if the Lord is not involved in it, however hard you try and do it, it will never work. Read the rest of this entry »

Genesis 3:21, “21 And the Lord God made for Adam and for his wife garments of skins, and clothed them,” (TRSV).

Adam and Eve disobeyed God, Eve was deceived and Adam listened to his wife and disobeyed God. Immediately they went into hiding because they were naked and a shamed of what they did. They tried to cover themselves with leaves, which did not do a good job as they were bound to dry and fall off. Read the rest of this entry »
