"Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe (do) all things whatsoever I (Jesus Christ) have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. 2 Corinthians 7:1 ... dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God."
I am a retired pastor of
the Church of God (Tennessee).
My name is Isaac Livingston. I am from Neyyoor India.
The declaration is: Adam and Eve sinned, they died in spirit, and lived in flesh. So, we must be born again for the Spirit. Explanation: They died on the same day when they ate the fruit. So, it was not physical death. But, their spirit departed, which was their covering of glory, and so they became naked. This death is passed upon all men. So, God has to quicken them, who are dead in trespasses and sins.
Adam and Eve broke the only commandments given to them. They ate the fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, which God told them not to eat, and death came on them. Death came on all of us also, because all of us have committed sin, even though we did not commit the sin of eating a fruit, that was Adam's transgression. The spirit was upon Adam and Eve and so they were living souls. The spirit was in the glorified form, because they were in paradise. It gave them covering as house to their physical body. When they died in spirit, that is when their spirit is removed, they saw their naked bodies. "2 Corinthians 5:1 For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens."
