As I was doing my quiet time this morning, I came across something in the scripture and it got me the very moment I read it.
It is a part of the Bible that almost every one of you has read or heard about in a sermon before.
But as I came across it, it drew my focus on something which I consider it to be a Mistry
And I asked myself; how many people living on this planet have ever thought about this from my perspective. So I deem it worth it to share with you.
THE INHERENT POWER OF MAN
Reading from the scriptures GENESIS 1:26 & 27 and I quote: Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us. They will reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the livestock, all the wild animals on the earth, and the small animals that scurry along the ground.”
27.”So God created human being in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them”.
This very scripture kept me thinking for more than 1hour.
One phrase I want you to focus on is that and I quote. “Let us make human beings in our own image, to be like us”.
When I considered this particular phrase to other verses of the same scripture about creation,
I realized that, everything that God created from day one of the story of creation, was pointed to or was made out of something he has already made.
Of which you and I can boldly identify its source from the same chapter of the bible.
Thus, after He created heaven and earth, He also saw that, the earth was empty and formless. So he made his spirit moved over the surface of the waters.
Then commanded that, let there be light. And there it was.
So clearly, we can see that the light was made out of the heavens which He has already created and that becomes the source of the light.
So after He had also separated the Darkness from the light He saw that, the light was good.
Then again God called the light day and darkness night. That gives them their unique and natural identity.
Then, God created a space to separate the waters from the heavens and that of the earth
Calling the space that he created the SKY
Which is also from something He has already made which is the heavens.
From here, God realized that the heavens is now looking beautiful and conducive but the earth still remain formless.
So he called out all the waters beneath the space to flow and gather at one place so he can get a very dry ground.
So He called that dry ground space the LAND which also has it source from the Earth he created from the beginning.
And the gathered waters the sea which also own it source from the Earth. So he now commanded these three of His creatures to reproduce based on their inherent nature.
So He called out of the land vegetation, all sorts of seed-bearing plants, and trees with seed-bearing fruit. Their seeds should produce plants and trees of their own kind.
Then back to the sky, He called out the light to separate the day from the night to indicate as a sign to mark the seasons, days and years.
So the light is supposed to shine from the heavens to bright and earth so that there will be that interdependent of both the heavens and the earth.
Now to the waters on the earth is supposed to be filled with swimming creatures like fish and other life. And the sky also be filled with flying creatures like birds of every kind.
The reasons why a fish cannot survive life without water is that, the water is where it was made and formed. So it naturally have the surviving capacity in water and not on a dry ground because the water is it source of existence and life.
So it do not need atmospheric oxygen to survive. So as you also do not need any magic pills to succeed in life.
So the sky or the space is to also produce offspring of their kind to be able to live and survive within the space.
Which also have a natural surviving capacity of the space or the sky.
After God has gone through this part of his creation, He blessed the three different kinds of creatures to be fruitful and multiply.
In other words, He caused them to naturally increase in numbers of their own kinds with equal producing capacity.
From the verse 1 to the verse 25, everything God created was directly out of something he has already created.
But the MISTRY behind God’s creation was revealed in the verse 26 & 27.
This is a full package that we’ll dive deep into it in our next episodes. Love you all.
