Quick post on the Messianic pre fall restoration. The lion will lay down with the lamb. there was a time when there was no violence between animals or between men nor between men and animals. See genesis where all the animals were brought before Adam and he named them. The messiah returns dominion over the earth and the kingdoms of the earth to mankind, after Adam had given it up (instead of letting Eve catch the full impact of her transgression). This is also how we inherit sin and indeed death as well, from Adam. Thanks buddy.
Ultimately we give up dominion to the enemy. He cannot take it from us, but he can usurp it from us. “So called ruling from behind the throne”. The enemy tempts us, entices us and deceives us, he cannot blatantly take from us.
When you have righteous kings or judges over a nation then the nation can receive the full blessings of God.
But when we abdicate dominion, for example in the Kingdoms of men, the enemy can rule, through sin. Think sinful rulers etc.
This was part of what the restoration of the fall includes, that which Jesus came to restore in us. It will culminate in fruition upon his second and final return.. soon to come.
Praise the Lord Christ Jesus!
