    The Dominion Lost

    This was man’s original dominion, but it was not retained. In the Epistle to the Hebrews we have the words of the Psalmist quoted with the following comments:—EVCO 32.2

    “For not unto angels did He [God] subject the world to come, whereof we speak. But one hath somewhere testified, saying, What is man, that Thou art mindful of him? or the son of man, that Thou visitest him? Thou madest him a little lower [or, “for a little while lower”] than the angels; Thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of Thy hands; Thou didst put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that He subjected all things unto Him, He left nothing that is not subject to him. But now we see not yet all things subjected to him. But we behold Him, who hath been made a little lower [or, “for a little while lower”] than the angels, even Jesus, because of the suffering of death crowned with glory and honour; that by the grace of God He should taste death for every man.” 2Hebrews 2:5-9 RVEVCO 32.3

    A wonderful picture is in these words opened to our view. God has put the earth, and all that pertains to it, under the rule of man. But that is not the case now. “We see not yet all things put under him.”EVCO 32.4

    Why do we not now see all things put under man?EVCO 32.5

    Because man lost every thing by the fall. But we see that Jesus, who was made “lower than the angels,” that is, He was made man, has tasted death for every man, so that all who will believe may be restored to the last inheritance. So that just as surely as Jesus died and rose again, and just as surely as by His death and resurrection those who believe in Him shall be saved, so surely will the lost inheritance be restored to those who are redeemed.EVCO 32.6
