There are certain very important principles or focuses when it comes to God, and one of those is the importance of Purpose. I discovered something about man’s purpose and I’ll be divulging that in a minute.
Just before I go on to divulge that, I’d like you to understand that everything God created as recorded in Genesis, he didn’t create them because he didn’t know what to create, or that he would create things to a point and start thinking – what else should I create? – No! It didn’t happen that way, and it wasn’t recorded so by Moses. Everything God created and birthed forth were as a result of the whole existence of these things within him. I call it Potential.
Everything God created, he created as a result of the potential of these things that he carried in himself. So all he had to do was to birth them forth. You would even notice this in the arrangement in which he created everything. He wouldn’t create something when its survival was yet on another creation that was yet to be created. So you would see a definite order of creation by one who already knew everything he was to create from the beginning before he even started to create at all, because the potential for all of creation already existed in him; the creator.
Having that in mind; that God didn’t get to a point and started thinking of what else to create, therefore, man wasn’t created out of a mere need to create something (or someone) but a response to a calling forth from the depths of God. Now, we can proceed to the point. So, let’s start from this angle right here…
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.
You know, one of the misconceptions in this verse is the silent believe in you that when God said; “Let us make man in our own image, and after our likeness”, he was giving a response to a question of “how should we make man”. That is a definite No, because we understand that a knowledge to one of the Godhead is a knowledge known by all of the Godhead.
Moses never even recorded any of this springing forth, i.e God being asked a question. Moreover, God happened to be the only one on the scene, and a question definitely wasn’t protruding out of God to God. So, you would come to understand that when God said; Let us make man in our own image, and after our likeness; what he was actually doing was to state -in passing- what man is made of / how man was created…and not that he was saying that in response to a question but so that we would understand and know our origin and essence is directly of God’s spirit himself.
So, you would understand that man carried the same essence that God is full of, and God had to make that known and clear. Alright?
So, when God said again; “let them have dominion…“; the word ‘let’ wasn’t a matter of permission or giving of the dominion status, because as spirits carrying the fibre of God, we already possess the dominion status just as God possesses it. The word ‘let’ is however a matter of definition of the dominion status, domain or region.
That’s why you’d understand that everything that followed ‘let them have dominion…’ are actually a sum total or basically just saying or referring to ‘earth’. So, he basically was saying; let them have dominion over the earth. It was not a matter of God actually giving the permission, it was a matter of God defining our domain of dominion, or else, we probably would be dragging his own throne (heaven) with him. So, he said, man rules over the earth, while I rule in heaven.
Ultimately, you’d have come to understand that when God wanted to create man, it was not a matter of him just creating for the sake of it, it was because man is meant and was created for a purpose and a need (by the response to the depths of the potential that is in God). Purpose is key in everything, and God never created anything just for the fun of it. He did for a Purpose.
So, permit me to ask you…Have you discovered your Purpose yet? If so, what are you waiting for to start walking in it? Now is the time to start taking over your place and domain of dominion!
