God’s Ultimate Domain

God is the obvious hierarchy in Genesis chapters 1-3.  He gave Adam life, tasks to complete, Eve, a wife, and unceasing grace.
The serpent had an influence on Eve as he was able to deceive her into believing that the fruit of the tree of life was not harmful to eat, even though it was forbidden by God himself.  But God was in ultimate control as he cursed the serpent “more than all cattle” and put him into a dusty, no legged life.  God also brought an end to the eternity Adam and Eve’s lives, “for dust you are and to dust you shall return” said God.
However, God would eventually bring man back into a thriving, grace filled lifestyle with many blessings to come in the near future.
