About Our God Reigns Series
Martha's thorough and definitive series on one of the most pivotal spiritual issues, and one of the most misunderstood: Authority.
Eve failed to reign over the “creature that moved on the ground,” and Adam failed to lead her. It was more than mere disobedience. When Satan became their advisor, he became their master – in the place of God. He became their “authority” and they, his subjects. And because of that, they lost their own authority.
Divinely Given authority is only operative in surrender to the Supreme Authority . . . of God.
So Adam and Eve were banished from the Garden of their Original Calling: to-Multiply-by-Ruling.
The sin was disobedience and the repercussion of death included the loss of their authority. Authority FOR God can only function UNDER God.
