In God’s original intent, He created Adam and Eve in His own image with the capacity to birth a race of immortals who would carry out a dominion mandate beginning from the Garden of Eden to be fruitful, increase in number, fill the earth, subdue it, and rule over all creation.
Has this Genesis Mandate been abrogated by God, or is it now to be accomplished in Christ as we rule and reign with Him, advancing His Kingdom from generation to generation? Is it not the same test of obedience every human must still pass today? Choose Christ the Tree of Life and live – disobey and you will die.
We are immortals – our life on earth is the testing ground. Chose Christ and you will be spiritually clothed with a glorified body giving you access to an eternity in heaven. Reject Christ, and you will enter eternity naked – access to heaven denied. What a glorious future God has prepared for those who love and obey Him.
