Genesis 3:19, 23
19. In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.
23. Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.
God levied a curse against man owing to rebellion, and we operate under it even today. The curse lifted only when God’s dear Son, our Lord and Master Jesus Christ returns.
It ought to be a constant reminder of sin; rebellion against Almighty God, which originated in the Garden of Eden so long ago.
I would hazard that at some point Satan and his battery–as they are wont to do – again insinuated that God was being unjust; a recurring event and man once again took a bite of the proverbial apple.
Rather than tilling the ground, only 3% of the population in the United States alone engages in farming, which is nearly a 180-degree shift primarily since the mid-1850s; the industrial revolution. Intrinsically, 90% of the world’s population lives in cities.
The order of the day is consumerism and leisurely entertainment. One needs only to consider the U.S. advertising economy (239 billion in 2019) and that the average citizen watches just over 5 hours of television a day.
Satan and company are pleased with themselves, surely.
However, God is ultimate. These items agree with His sovereign will, overall plan for the earth as we know it.
