We Shall Not Be Found Naked 2 Cor. 5:1

1 For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.

2 For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven:

3 If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.

Gen. 2:21 21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;

22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.

23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

Ch. 3:6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

8 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.

9 And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?

10 And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.

Wait a minute: I thought they had sewed themselves aprons:

7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

But here in vs. 10 ...after they had made themselves aprons, Adam still says he hid himself, because he was naked.

-obviously, HE KNEW that the little covering that he had was not sufficient enough to appear before the Lord.

Take it a step further: Adam and Eve were once clothed.

REALLY? CLOTHED? But the Bible says that they

were naked....back to Gen. 2:25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

So what were they clothed with? Purity, innocence.

They had no idea what guilt was.

No idea what condemnation was.

No idea what being naked meant.

Not only clothed with purity and innocence, but clothed with the Shekinah Glory of God..

BUT when SIN entered their lives, they lost their clothing, the shekinah glory, the purity, the innocense, they went from being UNASHAMED to FULL OF SHAME

They went from being clothed with glory to

being naked with shame.

That is exactly what SIN does to your life:

It strips you of the glory of God.

That’s why Rom. 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

All have sinned and have not measured up to

God’s glory.

-are not fully clothed like we read about in Gen.
