2A5.  God’s nature expressed as power:

God still sustained the whole universe and His authority over it was not diminished by His Enemy, by the FALL or by the people’s sinfulness

2A5(title)   God’s nature expressed as power

God continued to demonstrate His power in this Era which extended over a long period of at least 1656 years [2A(intro)4)].

2A5(sub-title)  God still sustained the whole universe and His authority over it was not diminished by His Enemy, by the FALL or by the people’s sinfulness

Despite the FALL God continued to sustain the whole universe!

God’s condemnation and curse upon His Enemy (in the form of a serpent) after the FALL had already shown that God’s power over him had not been diminished Gen 3:14,15.

God let people continue living on Earth and enabled them to multiply Gen 4:1-2,17-22,25-26,  5:3-31.  Yet their rejection of His authority continued and their rebellion against Him increased Gen 4:5,8,9b,19,23-24,  6:1-2,5.  But their sinfulness did not diminish His power over them in any way Gen 4:10-16,  6:3.

Finally God declared that He was going to bring judgment upon all this evil, in overwhelming power Gen 6:7.
