At that moment of the fall of man (arising from his own folly) god's design to save man was put in effect -- from god's continuous self-revelation up to the crucifixion.
One disobeys a rule when one thinks he is not subject to that rule -- which was the proposition of the serpent in the first place.
Adam and eve wanted an existence that is not dependent on god's grace -- that they would be 'god's unto themselves' -- hence is a rejection of god.

As I have already said, man's fall was not due to ignorance. Ignorance, after all, is excusable. Nor is it about the acquisition of power. Man's rational faculty already gave him dominion over creation.
Man's fall is the result of rejecting god's grace -- the essential element on which his entire being is dependent on.
