The Three Pillars: The Adamic Covenant

“This is what Yahweh says: ‘Maintain justice and do what is right, for my salvation (יְשׁוּעָה - yesh·ü'·äh) is about to come and my righteousness will soon be revealed.” (Isaiah 56:1) 
Salvation for who?
Those who keep from defiling the Sabbath 
Love the name of Yahweh 
Holds fast to My covenant.
“Blessed is the man that does these things!” What things? Holds fast to the Covenant.
The Adamic Covenant is pronounced in Genesis 3:14-19 as a result of the Adam & Chavah's (Eve) sin. When these first humans were placed in the Garden of Eden, they had all they would ever need. It was beautiful, food was plentiful, and there was no need for anything else. The only prohibition issued to them by Yahweh was to not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good & evil. 
A serpent (haSatan’s possessed) tempted the woman with equality and she was deceived to eat of the tree’s forbidden fruit. She then took the fruit to Adam who willingly ate the fruit he knew was prohibited. 
"Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner." (1 Timothy 2:14) 
Most people are familiar with this account, but few realize the consequences brought upon the entire human race thereafter.
"...sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned...." (Romans 5:12)
Yahweh issued a curse against the serpent for allowing himself to be possessed by HaSatan: “Because you have done this,
‘Cursed are you above all the livestock and all the wild animals!
You will crawl on your belly and you will eat dust all the days of your life.
And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers;
he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.’” (Genesis 3:14-15)
“To the woman He said:
‘I will greatly increase your pains in childbearing; with pain you will give birth to children.
Your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you.’ (Genesis 3:16)
Yahweh said to Adam:
“‘Cursed is the ground because of you;
through painful toil you will eat of it all the days of your life.
It will produce thorns and thistles for you, and you will eat the plants of the field.
By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return.’” (Genesis 3:17)
Redemption was secured in the Adamic Covenant when Yahweh cursed the serpent. The curses are inescapable, but a great promise of grace and forgiveness was issued. 
"...in Adam all die, so in Messiah all will be made alive. But each in turn: Messiah , the firstfruits; then, when he comes, those who belong to him. Then the end will come, when he hands over the kingdom to Yahweh the Father after he has destroyed all dominion, authority and power. For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. The last enemy to be destroyed is death. For he “has put everything under his feet.” Now when it says that “everything” has been put under him, it is clear that this does not include Yahweh himself, who put everything under Messiah. When he has done this, then the Son himself will be made subject to him who put everything under him, so that Yahweh may be all in all." (1 Corinthians 15:22-28)
