THE KING OF CREATIONS
(in focus: GENESIS 1:29)
PONDER OVER THESE:
Who do you think you are?
What authority do you have?
Whom are you accountable to?
”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.”
How awesome it was, to notice an authority free from blemish bestowed upon man by the Supreme God Almighty. ” 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”
How an honor it was to humanity, crowned as the chief all creations. How inspiring and marvelous it was to see a creation commanding the creations of the air, domineering over the creations of the sea, and the creations of the land, responding eagerly to the to the King of creations – mankind. ” And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good”
A solemn authority still remains in the bosom of mankind, the King of all creations. How then thou do we enact our authority? The home, the family , the community, the country awaits the undiluted authority conferred on the creation by the Creator. ” male and female created he them” to domineer over all creations purposefully within the scope of the authority bestowed on them. Is the creation equal or superior than Creator? Ney! ”Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him.”
Who is in authority?
PONDER: a simple way to discard an authority is to disregard an authority
