God said that mankind was to rule on the earth. It WAS and IS His Will that WE, man rule in this earth. Why? Because we are made in His Image! He rules, so He wanted us to be made in His image and rule here on earth! That is why God did not stop the fall of man when Adam and Eve were in the midst of sinning and going against what God had told them not to do. He had given them, man, rulership on the earth, remember, before they sinned He said, “let them rule . . . over all the earth.” And God will always keep His Word! He did it that day and He keeps it now. Adam and Eve had to make the decision; they had the authority to take care of that situation with the serpent (the devil) that day. They could have spoke to the devil and blasted him right out of that garden! But, instead of taking their God given authority and using it against their enemy, they decided to hand it over to him. God had created a perfect place in the garden, everything was joy, peace, no fear, no doubting, no sickness, no shame, no anger, no danger, no lack, no pain, no sorrow . . . NO SIN.
It was The Kingdom of God in this earth! It was a place where man and God, A Father and His Children walked together. God could be in this place, for it was as His dwelling in Heaven. For there is no fear, no doubting, no sickness, no shame, no anger, no danger, no lack, no pain, no sorrow in Heaven. Even Adam and Eve were literally clothed with God’s Glory. And when God’s man and woman sinned that day, the perfect, heavenly domain in the garden changed. For sin entered. The perfect seed bearing earth, the animals, and man, the perfect creation of what The Kingdom of God was like in this earth was now cursed. Faith was twisted into fear, health was cursed and became sickness, sorrow replaced joy, and peace was altered into torment. Shame, depression, poverty, lack, brokenness, pain and slavery came into this wonderful place and came to God’s beautiful creation, mankind.
Even the clothing of God’s Glory that was on Adam and Eve vanished. They had never known or ever saw nakedness, and for the first time in their lives they felt what shame was. They had lived in the Kingdom of God on earth, where what you looked like was God’s Glory, His Presence and Light.
