For most of my life, until this point, I had been exposed to listening to those who were giving out misinformation, half-truths and down right lies about their interpretation of the Holy Bible.
I know that I am not alone in my search for the truth concerning our existence and purpose for being here (on earth at this time), therefore I will continue my quest for truthful information that can be backed up by the WORD of God and pass it along to those who are seeking the same.
This discussion will start at the beginning for clarity (Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.)
God's original intention was and still is, to make the earth a colony of His kingdom in heaven.
But let's start at the beginning. He had to set the stage by creating the back drop and props first
This portion of His creation is explained in scripture (Genesis 1:2-26.)
After everything was in place, He created man. Now remember that every good architect and designer has a purpose in mind for everything that He does before it comes into existence. Scripture tells us that He "knew us individually" before He began creation. He is Alpha and Omega.
Genesis 1:26-28 "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.
God is a triune and Spiritual Being (Father, Son and the Holy Spirit - The Godhead.)
Genesis 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 first part of verse 27 explains that man is a triune being after the image of God (Spirit, Soul and Body.) God gives the Spirit, which is a part of Him. The Soul comprises our five senses, our ability to reason and choose etc., and our Body (Our "Flesh Suit" is necessary to exist in the earth realm.)
The second part of verse 27 clearly states that God created man to be both male and female.
Let's stop here for a moment. In everything God does there is order and purpose to it. All living things that God created are designed to reproduce after their own kind, including man. Even though God created the male first, He knew that it was not good for man to be "alone" or "all-in- one." So He made a fe-male (a male with a fetus) so that woman (man with a womb) could reproduce and be a companion (helper) to the male. Hence the male carries the "seed" and the female was designed with the womb to conceive and give birth. There is nothing secular man can do to change God's original design ... period!
Genesis 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. "
Though God made the female after the male, He gave them both dominion over the earth and not each other originally. The "man" Spirit in both male and female are equal in the eyes of God. It is man's "heart" that God looks at.
God is not the author of confusion and His WORD will not return void. His will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
