Excerpt from Adam’s Carmel Apple.
ADAM’S SIN BRING’S A CURSE ON THE EARTH
WITH GREAT CATACLYSMIC EVENTS
AND THE SECOND DEATH
And he said Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the LORD. And, behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the LORD; but the LORD was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the LORD was not in the earthquake: And after the earthquake a fire; but the LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice [1 Kgs 19:11-12].
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; Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; 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 [Gen 3:17-19].
These cataclysmic events could also lead to the answer to the question of why the four heads of water do not touch the River Kishon any longer. God destroyed the appearance of the Garden of Eden so we couldn’t find it until now, because we can only find it by digging in the Word, not by digging in the earth. But now Mt. Carmel is again a beautiful place and many wonderful plants and flowers can be found there. God has restored the nation of Israel like He said He would:
For the LORD shall comfort Zion: he will comfort all her waste places; and he will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the LORD; joy and gladness shall be found therein, thanksgiving, and the voice of melody [Isa 51:3].
It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the LORD, and the excellency of our God [Isa 35:2].
On Carmel, Keil-Delitzsch write:
. . .but in the interior it still preserves its ancient glory, which has procured for it the name of “fruit field,” the valleys being covered with the most beautiful flowers of every description, and the heights adorned with myrtles, laurels, oaks, and firs. . . .
