This is the story about creation and it is very fascinating as you connect it the God’s ultimate plan of salvation and restoration.
We have all read in Genesis how God created the human race, but lets look at it slightly deeper:
Gen 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
The word for create is the Hebrew “bira” which means to make something out of nothing. So we see that God created Mankind out of nothing as MAN in this sentence is not talking about Male, MAN is the generic term for both Male and Female. So Man existed spiritually before Male and Female ever existed physically.
So in Chapter 1 God is describing what he did and by the time we get to chapter 2 God shows us how he did it.
Gen 2:7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
The Hebrew word for formed in “yasar” which describes how God took time the take the materials of ground and put man together, so we have his personal touch, we were tailor made! This is different from the rest of creation because with the rest God spoke them into being “Let there be and there was”
So he spoke to the Sky to bring forth the birds, he spoke to the waters to bring forth the fish and the see creator. He spoke to the land to bring forth the animals, how before he created MAN, he spoke to HIMSELF!
Gen 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
This is why man did not evolve from animals, we are completed different, we are God’s special design.
So MAN or mankind is both Male and Female but the interesting thing it that when God created the first earth suite for MAN, he created it Male but when he created the second earth suite for MAN, him did not go back to the dust of the ground for the materials to use, he reached into the Male Man and grew out the Female Man:
Gen 2:21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
The Hebrew word used for rib is “Sela”, which literally means “from the side of”
Gen 2:22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
The Hebrew word for made is “banah” which means to construct or to fortify or rebuild
So, God took from the existing Male and made Female, this is why both men and women are equal in essence but different in function.
Every human being after this point has come out of the original male, God only went to the dust of the ground once. It is interesting to note from a biological point of view, it is the male chromosome not the female chromosome that decides the sex of the baby.
So God created both Male and Female the same, on the same level and then told them to dominate:
Gen 1:28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
This is why a Male and Female in the context of marriage is supposed to establish societies and populate the world under a Theocracy, which means God’s rulership not a democracy which is the majority rulership.
Why do you think there is such an attack on marriage, from the attempt in society to break it up, to now the attempts to redefine it! It is because marriage was the foundational plan of God to demonstrate or to parallel the relationship with the Godhead and how true rulership is. Multiple persons, one MAN; Multiple person’s (Trinty), one God!
I am going to continue this next week because this is so big!
