Then God said, ” Let Us make man in Our Image, according to our likeness; let them have DOMINION over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping things that creeps on the earth. Gen. 1:26
When God created Adam and Eve , they shared same responsibility. They were the ones who named every creature in this world. Every things we can see or not see was named by them. That time, they have at peace with each other, do the same things, happy together and have communion with God, the Creator.
God commands them to be fruitful and multiply and subdue it. If not for the fall, we are populated on earth but without trials, problems and pain. We are a happy people dominating everything for ourselves but one day, while Eve was walking in the garden and visiting place near the forbidden tree, without the husband as other always argue that she must not leave her husband so that she was not deceived by the evil one. She was always walk alone for she has the power over the creation of God.
One thing that makes her fall, she listen and follow the voice of the deceiver. God said to Adam and Eve, that if they eat the forbidden tree they will die. What makes it bad with Eve, while she was strolling on that place, she believes in the evil words that God’s words is not true. Especially , when she ate it, she was still alive so she brought it to the hands of the man. Bringing sin to her husband, he was indulge to distrust the words of God. He too, ate the forbidden fruit.
The rule of God was broken because they gave in to the rule of evil deceiver. You see, God gave rule to His kingdom. What make human fall because they follow other voice and decide by themselves without seeing what God commands.
When they fall, the dominion was transferred to the evil one. They became under the power of Satan and it transferred up to our time.
If we want to have dominion on Earth, we must believe and follow (obey)God’s word. His word is true and it give us security. Evil deceiver will never make us happy. I encourage everyone to obey God’s word so that our dominion on Earth will remain.
