The fall of man automatically brought suffering into the world. The fall of man is the transition of the first man (Adam) and woman (Eve) from a state of obedience to God to a state of disobedience. That is, Adam disobedience in the garden of Eden signifies the fall of man. When the first man and woman disregarded and disobeyed the commandments of God, God drove the first man and woman from the beautiful garden of Eden. A beautiful Garden specially created for man to enjoy a beautiful life.
Genesis 3:22 And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever: 3:23 Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. 3:24 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.
The wrath of God was unleashed on man instantaneously. God cursed man, punishment was poured to the earth.
Genesis 3:16 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. 3:17 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; 3:18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; 3:19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.
The grace of God was taken away from man, paving way to suffering to penetrate into the world. Our natural environment was corrupted. Corruption and wickedness , sickness, diseases, viruses presently in this world,all sort of problem that is ravaging the world today is as the result of our forefather sin.
You might be wondering why the world is suffering even though the present generation is not responsible for the sins of their forefather, right? Adam fall and in his fall the whole of his family got into a condition of distance from God. The curse placed on Adam and Eve after the disobedience was a generational curse. That is, God cursed Adam and Eve and also their offspring,even the unborn ones,the generation to come. We are suffering because of the sin of our forefather.
In this world today, children suffer because of the crime or wrong doing of their parents,so also we are suffering because of what our forefather did to God. Death sentence was imposed on man meanwhile this wasn't the initial plan of God.
God plan for Man was for man to be immortal but such privilege was taken as soon as Adam and Eve disobeyed God.
God's love and affection towards man before the sin was intense. In the beginning,God usually commune with man face to face.
But our natural inheritance was lost. But we thank God for our God is a merciful God. Our God is a God of love. Immediately after the ugly incidence, God provided a solution by which man can be reconcile back to Him.
Jesus gave his son to die for us for the atonement of our sin.(The blood of Jesus Christ atone our sins, this was the only way we could get back to God)
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
So before you can get back God's grace and mercy,you must pass through Jesus,by confessing your sin and pleading for God's mercy. That is, you go down on your knees,call on Jesus to forgive you all your wrong doing promising not to go back to them, promising to keep all his commandments, believing on God, when you do this,God the Father will be pleased with you and He will restore back his grace and mercy and love towards you and you will live a peaceful life, you won't be vulnerable to any harm that comes your way.
All humans are born in to sin, (born with sin,the curse affected us),you can't commune with God with your sinful nature,(we must beg God for forgiveness of our sins before we can enjoy God's grace), you can't enjoy the blessings of God with your sinful nature, so you will partake in the suffering of this world as far as you're still in that sinful state. People are suffering because they refused to acknowledge God,they disregarded God. If you disregard God you must suffer in this world. If you believe God and keep his commandments, you will escape the suffering of God,even though you're facing challenges,God will be by your side and help.
Psalms 33:18 Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy; 33:19 To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.
Psalms 34:19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all. 34:20 He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken. 34:22 The LORD redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.
You can't survive alone in this world without. You will be vulnerable to every harm that comes your way if you disregard God. So what are you to do to live a peaceful Life? Get save, pray for God's forgiveness for all your sin. Chose to obey all his commandments without exempting one,you will see how you will have peaceful mind,and the blessings of God (I am a beneficiary).
It is through Jesus you can escape the suffering of this world. When you make peace with God, you will have joy and peace of mind and all your desire will be granted. God bless you!
