Well, after adam and eve sinned against God by eating of the tree of knowledge. They have sinned and they're eternal life that was givin to them on earth, was lost because they sinned. And so they lived untill the day they died. And they went to heaven.
Well they died so they could've gone to heaven, if that's what happens when you die, because we really don't know if when we die we instantly go to heaven or if we just stay dead until Jesus comes again.
Well Gary from what I know is that Jehovah God created this world to be a perfect paradise earth free from sin and death forever. Paradise was lost do to satan the devil lying to Adam and Eve, saying that God was to restrictive and saying that God does not have the right to rule over humans, so the issue of God's right to rule was raised. God could have killed satan on the spot, but that would not be just on God's part because all the angels were looking, so God wants all of us to see for ourselves that He does have the right to rule over mankind, and from what I think is that He does have the right to rule over us, because Jeremiah 10:23 says to earthling man his ways do not belong, it does not belong to man even to direct his step. Well Gary I know that God will make this world into a perfect paradise earth again, just as He intended. Psalm 37:10,11
They were created to live in the garden forever. In perfect peace. But they were given free will to obey God. The tree of knowledge Would open their eyes to good & evil. They chose to disobey God So they got removed from the garden. Later... If they believed in God & chose to live by good.... Their body Would be in the ground & their soul to heaven. Old testament salvation = Abraham believed & it was counted to him as righteousness. Belief in God is the KEY.
Quite appropriately, the "book of Adam's history". tells us; "He become father to sons and daughters. So all the days of Adam that he lived amounted to nine hundred and thirty years and he died." (Genesis 5:1-5) He lived seventy years less than a thousands years. None of his offspring have lived a full thousand years, the oldest one, Methuselah living only nine hundred and sixty-nine years. (Genesis 5:27). Even from gods viewing a thousand years as one day. Adam died within the first thousand-year "day". of mankinds's existence. Where did he go at his physical death? Not even his "soul" (Neph'esh). had been taken from heaven, and he did not "return" there. He then ceased to be a "living soul." (Genesis 2:7). [King James] (Living person)[Living Bible] (Living Being) [New International] (Living Soul) [New world Translation] He ceased to exist. When his wife Eve died a physical death, she, too, ceased to be a "living person." There was no soul to live on forever and ever according to the Babylonian religious mythology. ( (
