The Gospel of God – Part 11

Eden must have been a marvellous place. With a statement like this one tends to think of the natural beauty of God’s creation, and rightly so.

But the beauty of the place was established by the presence of God Himself being there.

We are told in Genesis 3:8 “they heard the sound, or the voice, of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool, or breeze, or wind, of the day”.

It seems that Adam and Eve enjoyed being in the company of the Lord Himself in the garden He had placed them in. They were born into this, they were created for such intimacy and fellowship.

I have often wondered how long this state lasted as Scripture does not say.

Was this uninterrupted state of living experienced for a few days, weeks, months, years, decades?

However long it had been it ended decisively.
