Have you ever been to a Potters House? What you notice is the Potters Wheel where lumps of clay are turned on a round table that spins while the Potter takes his hands and shapes the clay into different forms of bowls, vases, plates, and containers. It is an exciting work as you see the clay shaped by the talented hands of the clay artist.
The Bible tells us that we are the Clay. In Genesis we find a direct reference to the original clay sculpture made by God when he formed the house that Adam would live in: his body. Consider this following verse and see God as the First Clay Sculptor:
GENESIS 2:7 KJV [special emphasis are miine]
“And the Lord God formed (sculpted) man of the Dust (Gray Clay) of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul(mind or intellect).”
It is clear when you study the Hebrew word for “DUST” you will find the Hebrew word is, “aphar” which carries the meaning of “Grey Clay”. The Lord God went out and found such grey clay and formed it in his hands even as a sculptor does. When you study the verse above note the word ‘FORMED”. The Lord God FORMED MAN out of the DUST of the ground. The Hebrew word “FORMED” is “yatsar” which carries the meaning, 1. SQUEEZING INTO SHAPE and 2. TO MOLD INTO A FORM as a Potter does CLAY.
Now understand with me that the First thing God did in the Creation of man was to FORM OR MOLD a BODY OF GREY CLAY into the shape of man. God is seen as a CLAY SCULPTOR and ARTIST who worked and squeezed and molded clay shaping the form into a human body. Upon his Sculptors bench he FORMED MAN. No doubt that the “Man Sculpture” that God had made was the GREATEST WORK IN CLAY EVER SCULPTED. He was God, and can anything God does be less than any? I think not. God made mans body and that body was the “Crowning Creation” of God.
It is interesting to note that the world of “Science” has said that man began as a lower form that became more and more complex until he arrived a Modern Man with greater intellect. When you read the scripture it was just not that way at all but man began (Adam) as the Greatest Man ever to live. It is just backward to the theory of evolution that wants us to see men rising up on a scale from fish to primates to modern man to the Bible Account which shows how man began with great intelligence and stance and degenerated downward till he is as he is today; small, dwarfed and sick. Adam (and Eve who was made from Adam) did at the time of creation have great intellect and are seen in the Garden of Eden as “Superior over all Gods creation,” and were even given the job of naming all the animals and species of life and to have dominion over them all.
Adam was Formed and then Eve. She was made by taking a rib from Adam and God called her Woman. It was the most wonderful and intelligent and mighty couple that has ever lived because God Created them with his own self and breathed into them his intellect.
We understand that when God breathed into them his breath that He created them in his image. God is no man or even can be described to have a Body because we understand from Scripture that GOD IS A SPIRIT. The Lord Jesus himself when He appeared to his disciples after his resurrection described what a Spirit is in Luke 24:
Luke 24:39 (AMP)
“See My hands and My feet, that it is I Myself!
Feel handle Me and see, for a spirit does not have flesh and bones, as you see that I have.”
It is clear then that Jesus who is God manifested in the Flesh, was SPIRIT before he took up his Body by way of Mary in his birth into this earth. God himself has no body but is ONLY SPIRIT. So, he made man into a shape that he wanted and THAT BODY WOULD BECOME ONLY A HOUSE IN WHICH HIS MAN WOULD LIVE. Like wise we understand in the BREATHING INTO by God into Adam he did breath more than just intellect or his Soul, but he did breath into man HIS SPIRIT and Adam was created a SPIRIT MAN.
In reality Man is a BODY and a SPIRIT. God did MAKE ADAM FIRST and does CONTINUE TO FORM MAN. It is here that we need to YIELD TO HIS FORMING HANDS. He STILL FORMS MAN AND MAKES HIM A SPECIAL VESSEL FOR HIS HONOR. Please consider this study and KNOW that God is MAKING YOU INTO HIS VERY SPECIAL VESSEL…..
IN HIS SCULPTING STUDIO….
Now CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING BIBLE VERSES:
Jeremiah 18 (AMP)
“The word which came to Jeremiah from the Lord:
2 Arise and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause you to hear My words.
3 Then I went down to the potter’s house, and behold, he was working at the wheel.
4 And the vessel that he was making from clay was spoiled in the hand of the potter; so he made it over, reworking it into another vessel as it seemed good to the potter to make it.
5 Then the word of the Lord came to me: 6 O house of Israel, can I not do with you as this potter does? says the Lord. Behold, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are you in My hand, O house of Israel.
7 At one time I will suddenly speak concerning a nation or kingdom, that I will pluck up and break down and destroy it; 8 And if [the people of] that nation concerning which I have spoken turn from their evil, I will relent and reverse My decision concerning the evil that I thought to do to them.
9 At another time I will suddenly speak concerning a nation or kingdom, that I will build up and plant it; 10 And if they do evil in My sight, obeying not My voice, then I will regret and reverse My decision concerning the good with which I said I would benefit them.
11 Now therefore say to the men of Judah and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, Thus says the Lord: Behold, I am shaping evil against you and devising a plan against you. Return now each one from his evil way; reform your [accustomed] ways and make your [individual] actions good and right.”
When considering this truth, WHY DO MANY NOT SEE THAT GOD “CAN” CHANGE ALL MEN… EVEN THE NATION? In the above verses we see that in verse 6 it says Israel IS CLAY IN THE POTTERS HAND. It goes on to say in verse 7 the Lord goes on to say: I WILL SUDDENLY SPEAK CONCERNING A NATION OR KINGDOM, THAT I WILL PLUCK UP AND BREAK DOWN AND DESTROY IT. Yes, the Lord CAN DESTROY but it goes on to say in verse 8: “And if [the people of] that nation concerning which I have spoken turn from their evil, I will relent and reverse My decision concerning the evil that I thought to do to them.” Yes, Not only can the Lord Destroy, but He can REBUILD AND SHAPE THE NATION/S….. AGAIN.
So I would like to say:
AMERICA (AND ALL OTHER NATIONS) YOU ARE YET IN THE HAND OF GOD. GOD CAN. He can yet CHANGE ANY NATION. So we should begin to PRAY AND BELIEVE GOD NOW…. TO CHANGE THE EVIL MEN AND NATION. THEREFORE… YOU MUST YIELD “REPENT” of your evil deeds and TURN BACK TO GOD. He will forgive and REFORM YOU INTO A BEAUTIFUL MAN OR NATION!
