Creation – Day 18
Mankind was given authority to rule over all the earth. How we failed!! We have failed because the devil intervened with his seductive ways, and Adam and Eve gave the rule over to him. But God knew that would happen. He had a plan of redemption even before time began.
So God created man in His own image. In the image of God He created him. Male and Female He created them.
After the brief discussion and agreement among the Godhead, (the verse which begins “Let Us”… that we looked at yesterday) mankind began. It began with two human beings. Male and Female.
There was no suggestion of any in-between beings, and no doubts as to who was male and who was female. It was obvious. In fact it was the same with all the animals too!
Maybe you don’t agree. (If so I am ready to discuss this further via private e-mails.)
Mankind was given authority to rule over all the earth. How we have failed!! We have failed because the devil intervened with his seductive ways, and Adam and Eve gave the rule over to him.
But God knew that would happen and He had a plan of redemption even before time began.
Jesus was part of the discussion about whether to create humans or not, and He had already agreed to come to earth in bodily form and be crucified for us.
Even before time, those decisions were held. What an amazing God we serve!
1Peter 1:19-20 … A lamb without blemish or defect. He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake.
Thank God today for His perfect plan of redemption, and give Glory to Jesus for His obedience. Dare to tell someone you see today about this “too good to be true” plan.
Pray for those you know who have not yet met Jesus.
Pray for any you know who have problems of sexual identity, ask God to reveal Himself to them as the loving forgiving Lord that He is.
For confirmation of what the Lord thinks about male and female, read the following verses. Leviticus 18:22 & 20:13, Romans 1, Timothy 1:9-11, Revelation 21:18.
