More Creation Significance

| | Comments (5)

Genesis 2:8-24

Hopefully what you've read so far of the creation account has highlighted for you how significant you are to God. But we're not quite done. Today we move on to Genesis 2:8-24. Now, Adam and the rest of creation (plants, animals, bodies of water, the Garden of Eden) are in existence at this point, and what happens next, gives us even more to consider about how important man (humans) are to God.

So what additional things did Genesis 2:8-24 show you about your significance to God? (Remember, we learned that we were created in God's image (Genesis 1:26-27). Then from Genesis 2:7 that man was formed by God's Hand and that we were given life by God's breath.) What is the most meaningful thing you learned from the entire creation account (Genesis 1-2) about your significance? Tami W.

So God created a Man and put him in the Garden to Keep it.
Not a vomiting self defecating infant, not a slim-mold wriggling out of a primordial-ooze.

A mature Man.

Just like He, God, created a Mature Earth.

In Six Days.

Macro-Evolution is a lie.

. 15 The LORD God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it. 16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, "You may surely eat of every tree of the garden, 17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die."

Lucifer's lie is to deny Gods Revelation to Us. Satan has no power against Almighty God.
But satan can hurt Gods heart by making us deny God and choose our own future in hell.

Adam and Eve, not adam and steve

. 22 And the rib that the LORD God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man. 23 Then the man said, "This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man." 24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.

The last days are never more evident.

Accept His Grace, repent and accept Christ's imputation of righteousness'.

Grace and peace, until Judgment Day

That God not only gave man dominion over other creation and the responsibility to care for it. But a position of a son and daughter that were in a close relationship with God a close trust with his handy work.

God created us with a need for community and human companionship. This wasn't a result of the fall; it was programmed into us from the very start. In a sense, in addition to being created primarily to glorify God, and with the responsibility to care for His creation, we're also created for each other.

I am in awe of verse 24. The mystery of "becoming one flesh". It implies completeness. One partner. We lack the capacity to be loyal, on the most part, to our mate. Hence divorce. Ripping that completeness apart. Sending the partners in different directions in pain and incompleteness. I don't think we get it. God is our manufacturer. He knows the reasons he designed us. He knows the ways in which we would function the best. If we don't follow the manual we will not get the best that life has to offer. Instead we suffer the worst.

'they shall become one flesh'. We go in to marriage with the idea that we are going to be a perfect couple. It takes many years to become 'one'. People give up too soon thinking that it's not perfect so it must be the wrong person. My husband and I have been married 39 years and knew each other for 5 years before that. Neither one of us is 'perfect' so there have been ups and downs, but always grace and forgiveness and committment. We are very blessed to be 'one', but it took putting God first to accomplish that.
