When did the devil gain "all this authority and their glory" of this world in Luke 4:6?

In Luke 4:5-6 the devil claims that he has been given all the authority and the glory of all kingdoms of the world. Did he get it when Adam sinned being trapped by the devil in Genesis 3?

Luke 4:1 - 13

ESV - 1 And Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit in the wilderness 2 For forty days, being tempted by the devil. And he ate nothing during those days. And when they were ended, he was hungry.
