The Bible is a very mystical book. The Holy Bible is a collection of sacred texts or scriptures. It is full of lessons, divine inspirations and stories. From the book of Genesis to The Book of Revelations, there are 1,189 chapters; 929 in The Old Testament and 260 in the New Testament.
From the 17th century, the world had many stories. Started from Aladdin down to Marvel Comic books. All these stories depict fun and sometimes lessons. Bible stories depict so many things; righteousness, reference, betrayal, significance of dreams and so on.
These stories teach human beings, lessons. Every Bible story is unique. 2 Timothy 3:16 says “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.” As a follower of Jesus Christ, we have to learn these lessons, in order to make the world a better place.
Story of creation.
When we read the story about creation of our world in the book of Genesis. We admire the beauty of God’s powers and abilities. Genesis 1:26 says “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”
Looking at the creation in another perspective, it makes believers acknowledge that there is a Supreme Being, Who loves His creatures. Human beings are destroying the Earth with bombing, spilling innocent bloods.
God gave us a responsibility to take care of his property; plants, animals and the earth. The responsibility to take care of them and preserve the earth treasures.
Story of Adam and Eve.
They were known to be the first man and woman created by God. Even the unbelievers attest to that, but some don’t acknowledge the lessons. God created everything, and He gives humans the opportunity to serve him. Psalms 150:6 “Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord.” God gave us the amazing opportunity to become a spiritual being and reign with Jesus, son of God, in God’s Kingdom. We aren’t on Earth to live, enjoy in Las Vegas or South of France and die.
Another lesson in the glorious story of Adam and Eve, is it’s not good to be alone. Woe unto men who believe loneliness is the prefect solution to their problems. Genesis 2:18 says “It is not good for that man should be alone”. God has given us the inner desire for companionship. The wisest King of his time, King Solomon, wrote in Ecclesiastes 4:9-12:
Two are better than one,
Because they have a good reward for their labor.
For if they fall, one will lift up his companion.
But woe to him who is alone when he falls,
For he has no one to help him up.
Again, if two lie down together, they will keep warm;
But how can one be warm alone?
Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him.
And a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
The story of Adam and Eve is fascinating and full of lessons to live a zealous Christian life. In Christianity, Marriage is sacred. God instituted marriage and it’s a life contract between two individuals. It should not end in divorce or separation. Jesus Christ told us in the book of Matthew. Matthew 19:7-8 talks about the reason why a lot of marriages now fail; they said to Him, “Why then did Moses command to give a certificate of divorce, and to put her away?” He said to them, “Moses, because of the hardness of your hearts, permitted you to divorce your wives, but from the beginning it was not so. In Genesis 2:24, it says “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.” Christ further teaches us in Matthew 19:6: “So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate”. Couples and newlyweds should not allow Satan to cause any ruckus in their marriage. And that takes us to our next lesson in the story of Adam and Eve.
Satan, also known as the Devil seduces human beings into sins and falsehood. When Adam and Eve were in the Garden of Eden, Satan tempted and deceived Adam and Eve. Right from the start, he waited patiently for the moment to approach Eve and persuaded her with lies. He said in Genesis 3:1: “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden?” Obviously, this is false. God never said that they can’t eat of any tree in the garden. This should not surprise you because Satan is the pioneer and grand master of lies. Referring to Satan, Jesus said: “When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.” Lying is not good. A good Christian doesn’t lie or tempt others to do bad things. As a believer of the truth, you must always show others the truth and the light. We shouldn’t twist the truth, that was how Devil tempted Adam and Eve. From there, he planted a seed of doubt in Eve’s mind. Nowadays, people change the truth to deceive fellow human beings. Satan destroys people’s faith in God, making evil good and good, evil. Don’t be deceived by the Devil, for he is the greatest trickster ever.
