The book of Genesis is commonly regarded as a history of man's beginnings, starting in the Garden of Eden. The book of Revelation, from our current perspective, details the future redemption of a fallen world and its return to something akin to the beginning. Genesis and Revelation are books that are controversial on our world today, however they should be read carefully and taken literally.
In Genesis man lived in a perfect world with no sin, no death, no curse and the entire world under his dominion. Had sin not entered the venue, man would have ruled the earth for God's glory. God cannot be defeated. Even though sin and death have infringed for a time, whatever God intended in the beginning will most assuredly come to pass in the future. Revelation thoroughly chronicles the return of the earth to its original perfection with no sin, no death and the curse removed.
The worlds of Genesis and Revelation are not quite the same. In the beginning the world started as sinless. Even though being perfect it was a provisional or probationary place. It was a place where man experienced sin and failure. In the final world, after man has experienced salvation and redemption, the planet is renewed. Man will be changed. He will be made perfect and will dwell with his Creator, his Savior, and his God.
There are similarities, comparisons and contrasts that can be made between the original "Genesis World" and the future and final "Revelation World". Some of these contrasts are seen below and are worthy of personal study and meditation.
