Genesis 3:4,5 [ESV] But the serpent said to the woman, You will not surely die. 5 For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.
Genesis 3:4,5 [Message] 4 The serpent told the Woman, “You won’t die. 5 God knows that the moment you eat from that tree, you’ll see what’s really going on. You’ll be just like God, knowing everything, ranging all the way from good to evil.”
Here’s one I hadn’t thought about before, Genesis 3:5 says; “ For God knows that when…”; the verse says “when”, not “if”!. The verse doesn’t say if you eat of that tree, it says when.
What else does God know I’m going to do today?
Will I make Him smile?
Will I make Him frown?
Will I make Him glad?
Will I make Him sad?
Will He pat me on the back, or kick His feet in the sand?
Will He say, Well done or will He say what have you done?
