The Temptation

  1. The Tempter. The woman was approached by the serpent, Devil (Genesis 3:1; Revelation 12:9; Revelation 20:2).
  2. Means. He approached her by speaking in her own language and by Falsely interpreting the law of God (Genesis 3:1-5; John 8:44).
  3. Points Tempted. The woman was tempted in
    1. the lust of the flesh,
    2. the lust of the eye,
    3. and the pride of life (Genesis 3:1-6; 1 John 2:16).
  4. Results. The woman was deceived (2 1 1 Corinthians 11:3); the man was not (1 Timothy 2:13-15), but the eating of the fruit brought the speedy sentence of death (Genesis 2:16,17; Romans 5:12-19). All the guilty parties were involved in the results.
  5. General Results.
    1. The serpent was doomed to disgrace and destruction;
    2. the woman was doomed to sorrow in child-bearing and subserviency to her husband;
    3. and the man was doomed to sorrow, disappointment, and hard labor (Genesis 3:14-19).
  6. Remote Results. Man's will power was doubtless weakened by Transgression, but he still had the power to partake of the tree and Life and live forever (Genesis 3:22-24). His memory was doubtless weakened by sin, but he remembered all the circumstances of the temptation and Transgression (Genesis 3:1-13). His reason was doubtless weakened by disobedience, but he was able to attempt to shift the responsibility From his shoulders when confronted with the results of his crime (Genesis 3:12,13).
  7. Causes of Sin and Death. Sin, death, and their terrible consequences were brought about by
    1. hearing,
    2. believing,
    3. and yielding to a lie.
