The Adamic Covenant conditions the life of fallen man--conditions which must remain till, in the kingdom age, “the creation also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the sons of God” Romans 8:21. The elements of the Adamic Covenant are:

(1) The serpent, Satan’s tool, is cursed (Genesis 3:14), and becomes God’s illustration in nature of the effects of sin--from the most beautiful and subtle of creatures to a loathsome reptile! The deepest mystery of the atonement is intimated here. Christ, “made sin for us,” in bearing our judgment, is typified by the brazen serpent ; Numbers 21:5-9; John 3:14; 2 Corinthians 5:21. Brass speaks of judgment--in the brazen altar, of God’s judgment, and in the laver, of self-judgment.

(2) The first promise of a Redeemer (Genesis 3:15). Here begins the “Highway of the Seed,” Abel, Seth, Noah Genesis 6:8-10, Shem Genesis 9:26,27, Abraham Genesis 12:1-4, Isaac Genesis 17:19-21 Jacob Genesis 28:10-14, Judah Genesis 49:10, David 2 Samuel 7:5-17 Immanuel-Christ ; Isaiah 7:9-14; Matthew 1:1,20-23; 1 John 3:8; John 12:31.

(3) The changed state of the woman (Genesis 3:16). In three particulars:

(a) Multiplied conception; (b) motherhood linked with sorrow; (c) the headship of the man (cf) Genesis 1:26,27 The entrance of sin, which is disorder, makes necessary a headship, and it is vested in man ; 1 Timothy 2:11-14; Ephesians 5:22-25; 1 Corinthians 11:7-9.

(4) The earth cursed (Genesis 3:17) for man’s sake. It is better for fallen man to battle with a reluctant earth than to live without toil.

(5) The inevitable sorrow of life (Genesis 3:17).

(6) The light occupation of Eden Genesis 2:15 changed to burdensome labour Genesis 3:18,19.

(7) Physical death Genesis 3:19; Romans 5:12-21, See “Death (spiritual)” Genesis 2:17. (See Scofield "Ephesians 2:5") .

Genesis 3:14-16

14 And the LORD God said unto the , Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:

15 And I will put between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

16 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy and thy ; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.

Romans 8:21

Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the of the children of God.

Numbers 21:5-9

5 And the people spake against God, and against Moses, Wherefore have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? for there is no bread, neither is there any water; and our loatheth this light bread.

6 And the LORD sent fiery among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died.

7 Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, We have , for we have spoken against the LORD, and against thee; pray unto the LORD, that he take away the serpents from us. And Moses prayed for the people.

8 And the LORD said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he upon it, shall live.

9 And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived.

John 3:14

And as Moses the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:

2 Corinthians 5:21

For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the of God in him.

Genesis 6:8-10

3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall be blessed.

4 So Abram departed, as the LORD had spoken unto him; and went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran.

Genesis 17:19-21

12 And he dreamed, and behold a set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God on it.

13 And, behold, the LORD stood above it, and said, I am the LORD God of Abraham thy father, and the : the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed;

6 Whereas I have not dwelt in any house since the time that I brought up the children of Israel out of Egypt, even to this day, but have walked in a tent and in a .

7 In all the places wherein I have walked with all the children of Israel spake I a word with any of the tribes of Israel, whom I commanded to feed my people Israel, saying, Why build ye not me an ?

8 Now therefore so shalt thou say unto my servant David, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, I took thee from the sheepcote, from following the sheep, to be ruler over , over Israel:

9 And I was with thee whithersoever thou wentest, and have cut off all thine enemies out of thy sight, and have made thee a , like unto the name of the great men that are in the earth.

10 Moreover I will a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own, and move no more; neither shall the afflict them any more, as beforetime,

11 And as since the time that I commanded judges to be over my people Israel, and have caused thee to from all thine enemies. Also the LORD telleth thee that he will make thee an house.

12 And when thy days be , and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed out of thy bowels, and I will establish his kingdom.

13 He shall build an house for my name, and I will stablish the of his kingdom for ever.

14 I will be his father, and he shall be my son. If he commit iniquity, I will him with the rod of men, and with the stripes of the children of men:

15 But my shall not depart away from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away before thee.

Romans 5:12-21

12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:

13 (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not when there is no law.

14 Nevertheless death reigned from , even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam’s transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.

15 But not as the offence, so also is the . For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which isby one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.

16 And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto .

17 For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)

18 Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto .

19 For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the of one shall many be made righteous.

20 Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where abounded, grace did much more abound:

21 That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto by Jesus Christ our Lord.
