Man in Adam before he sinned, and yet innocent, was not fit to enter into the Kingdom, that God prepared for them [His Elect] that Love Him James 2:5 5 Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him? This Kingdom was prepared for them before the Foundation Matt 25:34 34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: You see, at the time in the beginning, when the elect stood in Adam, they did not Love God, that was evidenced by the yielding to temptation and consequent disobedience to God's commandment ! Jesus said The first and greatest commandment is this Matt 22:36-38 36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law? 37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. Adam was not there yet, and consequently neither were the elect in him !
