After the tragic fall of Adam and Eve that took pace in the garden of Eden, Mankind in society began a process of repair, to get back into a meaningful relationship with God. In the future, mankind is destined to becomes the sons and daughters of God. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

Destiny heirs of God

In the cool of the afternoon God would converse with man, their conversation would be about pure things season with grace, never about speaking profanity, beneficial things that would bring edification, in the exaltation of man, the angels in heaven kept asking God certain questions, which were thought provoking, "what is man is man?
is he a creature? or freak of nature or creation accident?

For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour" these are the same words spoken by Jesus, he too was crown with glory and honour, he became a man to experience what all men would go through, he was totally innocent, without spot or blemish, yet it please the Lord to lay upon him the iniquity of us all, for all we like sheep had gone astray.

In our fleshly nature, mankind cannot live forever in this limited body, corruption must redress itself and put on in corruption, the mortal body has to en robed and put on immortality, ideally, mankind is a spiritual being, which lives in a physical body, and the body is only a house to carry the spirit around until he reaches his destiny.

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28

Man was placed on earth to demonstrate the rule of God and to do it with honour upon him, Adam could have done more than what he did when the Serpent showed up in the garden of Eden, Adam could have protested a little harder, made a fuss, even refuse a few times before falling, but instead we find him and Eve been quickly defeated by the trick of a serpent.

When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate; and she gave also to her husband with her, and he ate. And both Adam and Eve died spiritually, they would also later die naturally, But the ultimate destiny of mankind is to live eternally.

Genesis 3:6
At this stage the Bible present mankind in a poor condition, he had lost his birthright, chase out of his inheritance and made to feel like a worthless vagabond; but God would come to the aid of mankind, by providing a solution to the problem that was self-inflicted, through moral choice, through disobedience it resulted in the fall of mankind, and man who was made in the image of God, a perfect specimen of what it was meant to represent God; but Adam failed miserably.

For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God's abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ.
The image of God identified in man was corrupted, but it was not lost entirely in sinful deprivation, God restrain sin through the availability of grace, renewed by the salvation of Christ. Mankind was created with strength and dominion, but after the fall became weak and defenceless, before the fall, mankind had a high self-esteem, but after the fall even nature turned against man in critical behaviour.

For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. Romans 8:14

For everything in the world, the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does come not from the Father but from the world. The consequences of consciousness are alive in the behaviour of mankind, we have all become like sheep gone astray, and death is the conception door waiting to apply inclusion.

Although the centuries, mankind has neglected God, perhaps blaming him for our demise, but God has not neglected mankind. He has sustained us and kept the world together in spite of our differences, the unaccepted social behaviour, the disharmony among nations, the loss of identity and the misuse of power, even with all these anomalies, mankind is still Gods most gifted creature.

Satan and his fallen angel will no longer plague humanity, they will have been cast into the Lake of Fire and Brimstone, we will get a taste of what the greater future holds in the millennium reign when Jesus rules from Jerusalem.

Behold, I will create new heavens and a new earth. The former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind. But be glad and rejoice forever in what I will create, for I will create Jerusalem to be a delight and its people a joy. Isaiah 66:18
What then is mankind's compensation for the loss of Eden? Will we be elevated to a new level? And be commanded by God to enjoy moments of defining rights, I believe there will be a new heaven and a new earth, and old things will pass away, after the events of the end times takes place, the eternal dwelling place for the righteous will be the new Jerusalem.

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.

There is coming a time when death shall have no power, the sting of death is sin and the strength of sin is law, but thanks be to God which gives us the victory.
And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. And they will reign forever and ever. Revelation 21:1
