Understand the Bible: The Creation of Man

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 – Genesis 1:7

God created man, whether you believe in this statement or not. He is the source of everything existing according to history and scientific facts. No matter what your belief system, Elohim (the Creator of this Universe) created this ecosystem and their physical environment. Before the study of science and stories of history were written, generations seen and heard from God Himself. This is far to understand and grasp this simple concept in this generation; due to scrapping God’s image away from male and female. Within creation, God created man in His image according to Genesis 5:1 from the book of the generation of Adam.

Male and female were created by God from the Beginning.

Genesis 1:27 states, “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them,” and from Jesus explanation in Matthew 19 about improper marital vows. Apostle Paul also said in the first Epistles of Timothy, “For Adam was first formed, then Eve,” and in the first Epistles of Corinthians that “For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man.”

Understanding the Bible: Male and Female

God saw everything that He has created very good. Blessed them and watered the ground. The soft clay formed man’s body and the breath of life awaken a living soul.

Do you know the reason for the creation of mankind? In Genesis 1:26, we are told the man will watch and keep the animals. All human’s life are sacred according to Genesis 9:5-6. Why? Because we are made in God’s image and after His likeness. Every follower of Christ should be motivated to help save the unborn and protect the widows and needy: for in the divine image God made human being

If society takes this away completely, we will not know the TRUTH in the power of Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection. The apostle Paul shares with us another Epistle of Colossians telling us about the forgiveness of our sinfulness through Christ shed blood. I suggested that you read that book if you haven’t already. It is clear that God’s Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature (2 Corinthians 4:4; Revelation 3:14).

Satan (the god of this world) has blinded the minds of those who believe not in the glorious gospel of Christ. Guess what? They are made in the image of God and are afraid of the light that will shine from within them; just like God commanded the light to shine our of darkness. However, the gospel of Jesus Christ is hid to them who are lost. There is a vail upon their heart only the blood of Christ can help to set at liberty.

In Christ Jesus, our Lord, we have redemption and forgiveness of sins: who is the image of the invisible God the firstborn of every creature that in all things He might have the preeminence. If any turn back to Hashem (God), they in no wise perish in this life or in the one to come.

God is looking for his true worshippers according to John 4:23- 24:

23But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.

24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

The creation of man has not change from the beginning until this present generation. We are created in Hashem (God’s) image. Just like in the Garden of Eden, His desire is to communicate with He creation. Some of us (those make in his image) are hinder from doing so because of spiritual blindness. However, they can rationally believe by faith that God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

God made humans so they would seek Him, perhaps even reach out to Him and find Him. In fact, Elohim (God) isn’t far away from any of us. We are His creation. By faith I can say this, we have no need to image God in statues or picture images: for God is a spirit. He will overlook your ignorant, if you change your heart and repent to what Hashem has created you to be – male or female.
