Who is Adam and Eve? They Walked With God in the Garden of Eden

Genesis 3:8. Adam and Eve were not alone in the garden of Eden. They were with God. God not only visited them on a regular basis, but he walked with them in the garden of Eden. Genesis 3:8 says, “And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.” This passage gives us the distinct impression that God regularly walked in the garden. He just did not visit the Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden to issue commands and edicts, but the garden of Eden was where he fellowshipped with Adam and Eve. This fellowship was mutually enjoyable, but this changed the day Adam and Eve sinned and ate of the forbidden fruit. They were now ashamed before God and God banished them from the garden of Eden and his presence .

Adam and Eve were not the only ones to walk with God, but they were the first to be in fellowship with God before sin was found in them. Others who walked with God included Enoch (Genesis 5:24, “And Enoch walked with God …” and Noah, “... Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.” Leviticus 26:12 says, “And I will walk among you, and will be your God, and ye shall be my people.” When we are without sin we can walk with God and not be ashamed in his presence. God desires to walk with us just as he walked with Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden. Through Jesus Christ, mankind can walk with God again sinless and blameless.
