What "heavenly organization" did God have then?
Does that still function today?
I will leave onewithim to deal with its relationship with Adam (as I've not come across that idea) but yes we do believe that God has a heavenly organisation.
1 Corinthians 14:33
The prophet Ezekiel was given a vision of the heavenly part of Jehovah’s glorious universal organization.
states "God is a God not of disorder but of peace".
For countless billions of years YHWH (Jehovah) has coexisted with millions, perhaps billions of created spirits, referred in scriptures as "the sons of God" (Job 1:6; 2:1; 38:7; Daniel 3:25). These spirits can be considered an organisation because they are numerous, have rank, position and order and all work to a common purpose.
ARE THE ANGELS ORGANIZED?
The angelic forces like an army, are evidently highly organised all having their respective position, rank and duties.
- organized into groups comparable to legions (Mt 26:53)
- ranked as cherubs, seraphs, and angels (Isa 6:2, 3; Ge 3:24; Re 5:11)
- Headed by princes (Jos 5:13-15; Dan 10:13)
- Certain angels making up their armed (fighting) forces lead by the Archangel Michael (Jos 5:13-15; Dan 10:13)
DO GOD'S ANGELIC SPIRIT CREATURES ALL HAVE A COMMON PURPOSE?
REVELATION 7: 11,12
All the angels were standing around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and they fell facedown before the throne and worshipped God, saying: “Amen! Let the praise and the glory and the wisdom and the thanksgiving and the honor and the power and the strength be to our God forever and ever. Amen.”
CONCLUSION If a group of individuals working in an organised way to a common goal is an organisation
, then the millions of loyal spirit creatures in heaven serving Almighty God Jehovah in an ordered and harmonious way can accurately be described as his heavenly organisation.
