GARDEN OF EDEN RESTORED
“For HE HAS PUT ALL THINGS IN SUBJECTION UNDER HIS FEET. But when He says, "All things are put in subjection," it is evident that He is excepted who put all things in subjection to Him.” 1 Cor. 15:27
Divine restoration of all creation back to the original order. vs. 25-28.
The Kingdom being given by the Father to the Son of Man, we can, keeping this fact in view, appreciate the fact stated in 1 Cor. 15:27-28, viz: "But when He saith, All things are put under Him, it is manifested that He is excepted, which did put all things Under Him," etc. As this point will be brought up under the perpetuity of the Kingdom, it is only necessary to add, that a Theocracy in the very nature of the case, as seen in the form of the Kingdom, in its past history as given, and in the manner of its future restoration under David's Son must ever retain the position of being subordinate to the Divine Will of the Father as the creation began. This Theocratic idea Paul seeks to impress, and this very subordination is essential to our doctrine of the Kingdom, being indicative of a Theocracy here on earth.
This subordination is manifested in the investiture as described by Daniel 7, and will be most strikingly exhibited at "the holy mount." The place of public inauguration by "the Ancient of Days."
