Any reading, even casually, will tell the readers, that Genesis chapter one's first five days of Creation, was towards the preparation for the climax of His creation works, His children Adam and Eve.
Genesis 1:25-27 "And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 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. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them."
Note(JB) in the 3rd sentence find the word Dominion, and know that it means, "A King and his domain" That WAS Adam's position until the fall into sin, and that single act of rebellion against God, caused the transfer of dominionship to the tempter, Satan.......John 16:11 " Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged."
Satan, was judged back in Ezekiel 28, read it and see. This was one of other reasons why Jesus' death was required, by the law of the Kinsman-redeemer, for payment of human sins, and to show the character of The Father!.
May we add, that these actions were not founded upon Human sciences, but upon love and serenity?
It was Jesus Christ, who "sculpted" man in His own image, as He is an "hands-on God" ...
John 1:1-3 " In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made."
John 6:33 " For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world."
NOTE(JB) If you do not accept that Jesus is also God, then who else is able to heal, to raise the dead, and calm the sea and storm, and walk upon the water? Today many also claim man is god, but NONE are able to do what Jesus did and does. Right "Charismatics"?
After the first Wedding ever, ......
Genesis 2:21-24 "And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh."
What did Jesus give the wedded couple, as a wedding gift? Well it was a gift for all, even unto to the eternity, The Seventh-day Sabbath, to resat in The Godhead, of God, the Father, God, the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
Genesis 1:1 "In the beginning
NOTE(JB) 'elohiym [elo-heem] 430. Gods- plural, more than one, thus all three Divine Members of the God head were involved in the creation.
Therefore, from the First Seventh-day Sabbath forwards, we have been the receivers of the the Blessings of "A Day of Rest in Jesus" and the Sanctification process, that is a part, and the blessings of God's sanctified un ions in the Marriage of a man and a woman..
Just as there are Three Primary colors, Red, Blue and Green, from which we can produce all other colors, these three Primary Blessings, or primary Blessings will give us a complete life and a day of rest, in Christ, when we can and should "UNPLUG" from the world, and rest in worship and Bible study with the fellowship of like minded brothers and sisters.
Jesus created life, by His "Breath of Life/Spirit, [Genesis 2:7] and by the free-will gift of His own human side life, He paid for our Redemption, and purchased back the Dominion ship of earth from Satan, whom He totally defeated on the Cross!
Ephesians 1:4-5 "According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,"
Ephesians 1:7-10 " In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence; Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: That in the dispensation of the fullness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:"
John 17:19-21 "And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth. Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me."
John 17:22 " And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:"
NOTE(JB): "...that they may be one.." as in marriage, a "Spiritual Union of ALL in ONE".
Therefore all marriages under God's law, make One Flesh, and our honest full filling of the Sabbath allows us to be AT ONE with God!
Note(JB): I can not know dear reader, your understanding of the first two chapters of Genesis, but I see love and freedoms here for mankind, do you?
