The animal pre Garden of Eden lived in harmony without fear, and were not afraid to approached men beast as while it will be in the future Edendic as the Bible clearly states, ” The wolf will live with the lamb, he leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and the lion and the yearling together and a little child will lead them. The cow will feed with the bear their young will lie down together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox.8 The infant will play near the cobra’s den, and the child will put its hand into the viper’s nest.” Imagine if you would, a shark swimming beside a dolphins, a hungry feline being next to a bird. Or rabbits not being afraid of a hawk or an owl. Or a snake not slithering along the ground. Prior to the fall all God’s creatures lived in harmony with man and beast.
Because Adam and Eve violated God’s Commandments by eating the fruit from tree of the knowledge of good and evil. The animal kingdom drastically changed and were more afraid of mankind and beast. As LORD state to Noah,”The fear and terror of you will be in every living creature on the earth, every bird of the sky, every creature that crawls on the ground, and all the fish of the sea.”
A wild beast will either attack you or hide from you. Some animals are predators. such as feline family, bears, hawks, owls, snakes and falcons. Some are scavengers, such as, vultures, jackals, coyotes, and wild dogs, for example wild dog ate Jezebel when thrown out window. Some eat strictly fruits vegetables and nuts, such as rabbits, elephants, giraffes and monkeys.
There are animals that are pets people own such as dogs, cats, rabbits, parrots, and hamsters. Consider a cat one minute they’re sitting on the owner laps purring and content next minute they will be hunting a small beasts. One dog we owned chase squirrels. Most of animal of these would try trick you giving more food. One dog we owned would give you these sad eyes as though it has not eaten in several days. Orcas are playful mammal while in captive, crowds are amuse their antic, however, in their habitant they use the same tools to hunt prey. In short if you left dominative pets alone trey would be wild beast. While we think it cute and fun however, it part of the curse of sin in which humankind was solely responsible.
Prior mankind fell into sin the serpent was the most cunning and shrewd animal in the garden because the curse of sin it now slither along the ground as scripture states, ” God said to the serpent, Because you have done this, Cursed are you more than all cattle, And more than every beast of the field;On your belly you will go, And dust you will eat All the days of your life; ” Some snake are venomous, while others are nonpoisonous, whiles others compress their victims.
If Satan used the snakes as means deceiving the woman why is the snake cursed because Satan actions? Why is the snake curse due to Satan deceptive? Prior Satan being tossed out of heaven due to his insurrection he was highest rank angel in heaven and known as Lucifer meaning morning star or Venus found in Ezekiel 28:12-19, Isaiah 14:12-14 . He took a third angel with him found Revelation 12:4. and could appear as angel light found in 2 Corinthians 11:14.
God rightly could killed Satan due to his rebellion instead instead God displayed graces instead justice. Other angels appeared as men It appear that angels have the abilities to change foam. Satan chose a serpent because it was more cunning than the other beasts field. It was Satan who deceived Eve not the serpent. The serpent is part curse of sin due to Adam and Eve fell into sin. Satan is already doomed along with a third of angels as scripture states.
Who sinned Adam and Eve or the animals?, Remember mankind fell into sin not the animals. Than why did God slay the animal and use the skin of the animal to covered Adam and Eve body? found in Genesis 3; 21 The Lord God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife, and clothed them. God in His grace is providing a substitute for mankind way and the skin is meaning covering mankind sins, since hate sin.
Genesis 3; 15, 21
And I will put enmity Between you and the woman,
And between your seed and her seed; He shall bruise you on the head,And you shall bruise him on the heel.”
The Lord God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife, and clothed them.
After God pronounces a curse on the snake uttering these words, “Because you have done this, “Cursed are you more than all cattle, And more than every beast of the field; On your belly you will go, And dust you will eat All the days of your life;” God established a convent between Adam and Eve known as the Adamic Covenant seal it by slaying an animal, and replacing the fig leaves, and using the skin of the animal to cover their naked body, covering their sins. It was Adam and Eve who violate God’s commandment not the animal.
Four thousand later another person name Jesus Christ who committed no sin and took humankind sin, so that we might become the righteousness of God through Him. He willingly went to the cross and sacrifice Himself, took His Father wrath. To bridge the gap between His Father and mankind. To those confess repent and believe in His atoning work will not perish but have everlasting live with Him. For Son of Man did not come into the world to condemned it but to save it by sacrificing Himself on the cross.
