3 John 2 New King James Version (NKJV)
2 Beloved, I pray that you may PROSPER IN ALL THINGS and BE IN HEALTH, just as YOUR SOUL PROSPERS.
As YAH (GOD) was creating the Heavens and Earth, HE created the SECRET TO PROSPERITY / SUCCESS IN LIFE! YAHUVEH/YAHWEH GOD Almighty then revealed that SECRET to Adam (and Eve). We learn from Genesis that while in the GARDEN OF EDEN, the SECRET lied in Adam’s and Eve’s Relationship with YAH – OBEDIENCE TO YAH. The minute, they disobeyed YAH’S TORAH, the CLOSE RELATIONSHIP between them and their CREATOR / MAKER changed. They were banished from the GARDEN OF EDEN as it was perfect and they were no longer perfect! They were fallen beings. Satan had become a fallen Angel. Satan then sought to make mankind fallen beings as well in revenge against YAH Almighty for making mankind higher than the Holy Angels. Sadly, Satan succeeded.
We learned through the 1st and 2nd Books of Adam and Eve, that YAHUVEH/YAHWEH GOD Almighty communicated with Adam and Eve Outside of the Garden of Eden but not as before. HE did not come to them physically as before or even talk to them unless they PRAYED/ CRIED OUT TO HIM! Instead GOD THE FATHER whose name is YAHUVEH/YAHWEH GOD sent HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON whose name is YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH. This is saddening but also shows how seriously YAH hates SIN, that is to say, how SIN separates from YAH. Adam and Eve had to work harder on their RELATIONSHIP with YAH in order to be SUCCESSFUL IN LIFE! They were placed in a world they knew nothing about. They therefore needed YAH’S Guidance constantly! Satan did not stop tempting and attacking them. He persisted even after they left the Garden of Eden to-date.
Adam had to learn the hard way how to be an overcomes as well as successful plus prosperous in life in YAHUVEH GOD’S way!!!
All his children after him learned from him and most especially Enoch who came much later on in life after him.
By Abraham’s time, “the obedient to YAHUVEH GOD’S descendants of Adam” were much better equipped on how to deal with Satan and his evil ways. Abraham was tempted by Satan on several occasions just like today’s mankind is. He overcame except in the area of bringing forth Ishmael. He wasn’t perfect but he tried and pleased YAHUVEG GOD so very much….
