Adam’s sin destroyed the intimacy he had with Yahweh, and only he was responsible. Yes, Eve took the first bite, but Adam was responsible. He was God’s special creation. It was into Adam’s nostrils that God breathed His Spirit, and he alone created the problem mankind has been dealing with since that day—rebellion against the Almighty God, Yahweh.
Take a look at this exchange between God and Adam and Eve and see if it does not remind you of a parent talking with a child. Yahweh knew what Adam had done, and He knew Adam was hiding, but he asked, “Where are you?” (Genesis 3: 9)
Adam replied, “I heard the sound of You in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid myself.” (Genesis 3: 10)
Then God said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you not to eat?” (Genesis 3: 11)
Since God knew what Adam had done, He was simply trying to get Adam to admit his mistake and accept responsibility. But as a child does, Adam made excuses instead: “The woman whom you gave to be with me, she gave me from the tree, and I ate.” (Genesis 3: 12)
In other words, Adam was telling Yahweh that He was ultimately responsible for the problem, because He had given the woman to him, and she had offered him the fruit. From Adam’s perspective, the fact that he disobeyed Yahweh and ate the fruit was beside the point. Is this not exactly the way a child thinks?
Then God turned to Eve and asked, “What is this you have done?” (Genesis 3:13)
She replied, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.” (Genesis 3:13)
Eve was behaving like a child as well. In her mind, she was not responsible, because the serpent had told her the fruit was good. It did not matter to her at that moment that she had eaten the fruit so she could be as wise as Yahweh.
Adam and Eve denied responsibility for breaking intimacy with Yahweh, and both of them were wrong. They were responsible for creating the gulf between God and mankind, even though Satan tempted them, and Adam was ultimately responsible. Although Adam and Eve created the problem, only Yahweh can repair the damage they did.
In today’s SnyderTalk Commentary, I want to focus your attention on The Temple Institute. I’ve mentioned it before, but today I’ve added it to “Websites Worth Following.” Take a few minutes to explore the website. You’ll be glad you did.
When you’re in Jerusalem, you can go to The Temple Institute’s facility in the Old City and see garments and implements for Temple worship. They have already been made and are ready for use. You can also see the Gold Menorah on the Cardo in the Old City. It’s ready to go as well.
Take a look at the videos below for more information:

The videos will help you understand what is taking place behind the scenes in Jerusalem right now. The violence that erupted recently on the Temple Mount was directly related to a group of Jewish people praying on the Temple Mount and then announcing that fact to the world. Muslims have declared that it is illegal for non-Muslims to pray on the Temple Mount. It’s laughable I know, but if they think you are praying while you are on the Temple Mount, they will arrest you. Thankfully, we don’t have to lay out a prayer rug and touch the ground with our foreheads to pray.
We know that the Romans took the original Menorah to Rome in 70 A.D. We have a depiction of it being brought to Rome on the Arch of Titus. Most knowledgeable people, including me, believe it is in the Vatican today stored somewhere in an out-of-the-way place where people can’t get to it. That’s a shame because it doesn’t belong to the Vatican. It belongs to the Jewish people, and it should be returned immediately.

Stay alert because there will be a Third Temple, and it will be built on the Temple Mount exactly where the First and Second Temples were. It doesn’t matter one iota what Muslim religious leaders think or want. They can’t prevent it from happening because Yahweh said it will happen. Their efforts to keep the Third Temple from being built will be just as effective as blocking up the entrance to the Eastern Gate. That’s correct. They read in the Bible that the Messiah will return through that gate so they blocked it up. The Messiah, who is Yahweh, will not be deterred by a few stacked stones. The very thought of locking Him out of the one place on the planet where He said His Name will reside forever is comical.
