Freeborn, This is my first post about Adam & Eve. These are my own words. I hope you like it. Tweety
Creation of Adam & Eve This message is my attempt to talk about the creation of Adam & Eve from the Bible. Let us look:
Gen. 1:26. “ And God said, Let us make man in our own image, after our likeness; and let them have domination over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over everything that creepeth upon the earth. “
Right here I think that I could write a whole paragraph on what this verse means to me.
Let us look at this more closely. God was talking to others, that is the first thing that I see when I read this passage. How many other people? The scriptures do not say who or what he was talking to. But I think there was more than 1. People say this is the Trinity. FATHER, SON, HOLY GHOST. God said: “LET US”. There is no Trinity in scriptures. So, that belief is false.
This would lead the reader of this passage to interpret that he was not alone when he said this. God does NOT talk to himself. So there had to be other spiritual being/s there that he talked to. But right now, I have not studied this out enough.
But then again as I think upon this more. He would not have consulted with angels, since HE made angels not as powerful as HIM.
I believe by this time Lucifer had been cast out of heaven long before this was said. We do not know much about what happened in heaven before Lucifer was kicked out of heaven. Lucifer was an angel of God, so He would not have consulted with Lucifer about the creation of man. The other thing that I get from this one verse is that God was going to make man in HIS image. Yes.
We have the same thing as God has. Body, Brains, Hands, Fingers, Feet, etc. But he is more powerful than us. He created us. We did not create HIM. For God to even suggest that we be made after His image and likeness shows the reader that he loved us so much even before we were created, that we were to look like HIM.
The next thing that I notice about this verse is we were chosen to have domination over the fish of the sea, over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over the whole earth, and everything that creepeth upon the earth.
Just imagine before man was even created-God thought about what we were to have control over. Again, this shows God’s love for us BEFORE MAN was created. He fell in love with us long before we came into being. What do you not see in this verse? Can you see it? God made us to have possession and domination over the sea, air, and animals that were NOT made yet upon this earth. God had already clearly thought out that we were above animals that had no inhabited this earth yet. We were a special creation. We were LIKE HIM in every way. But we DID NOT have domination over the heavens. That is God’s territory. That is why we do not have power over the weather, or the changing of the seasons. God has always had domination and power over that. And that will never change. We have no domination over what is in heaven. Just this earth. And it also suggest that before we were created we were to have free will. But man would be obedient to HIM. 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. God created man in His own image. Right there tells you that we are just like God when it comes to physical appearance. God alone made male and female in HIS image. So all that stuff about how man came to being, by apes long ago is utter nonsense. Science is just a way for man to disprove that God exist and everything he created on this earth, was made from something on this earth. We were made by GOD himself in Heaven. 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 domination over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. This passage tells us alot. God blessed the man and women after He created them. He spoke to man & women directly. And from the moment that they were created they could reproduce. So that means that Adam and Eve were created adult like. You would not suspect that God would tell little children to fruitful and multiply? So, they could reproduce and have children right after they were created. Now this next passage in scripture tells me something. God told Adam & Eve to replenish the earth. Why would the earth need replenishing? And in the next sentence God says subdue the earth. Was earth when Adam & Eve were created a place that needed subduing? Why? In this passage, I will go on what DAKE says. That they earth was inhabited by sons of god. They are the giants of the earth. Getting into that is a long story. The giants were he offspring of the angels and women that were cast out of heaven when Lucifer was thrown out. He was cast down upon the earth. I believe somewhere in scripture God said that Lucifer was suppose to be ruler over the earth, but he rebelled against God. Man was created to bring life back to earth. God had destroyed everything that was upon the earth. This is NOT Noah’s flood. But Lucifer’s flood. And he gave Lucifer’s position to have domination over the earth to man. That is why he hates man so much. In his pursuit of continuing to defy God he will try and destroy us any way that he can. Gen 1:29: And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. This verse also tells us that in the beginning that man and women were created, that they were only to eat herbs and fruit. You don’t see in this verse where he says that man was to be eat meat of the animals. Only herbs, and fruit were to be meat and substance for Adam & Eve. Gen 1:30: And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and everything that creepeth, upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given, every green herb for meat; and it is so. In the beginning, God made the herbs of the earth for man and beast to eat. There was no meat eating for the beasts of the earth of fowls of the air. That is interesting. When did man want meat to eat?
