Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.(Genesis 3:16) KJV
On July 2 we proposed that the curse on Eve to have painful labor in childbirth meant that Revelation chapter 12, the war in heaven, had to have happened after the fall of man.
And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.(Revelation 12:1-2) KJV
How could the heavenly woman in Revelation chapter 12 be travailing in birth if Eve hadn’t been cursed yet? More to the point, why was she even pregnant if the curse of death hadn’t come upon the world? Reproduction isn’t necessary if we live forever.
For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.(Matthew 22:30) KJV
We have some interesting things to consider and by so doing we find another reason why we can confidently say that Satan couldn’t have anything to do with the fall of man in the garden of Eden.
