In Genesis we read how that God created A MAN and his name was ADAM. He did this creative act AFTER he had created all the rest of creation [animals, insect, plants, etc]. His deliberate act of separating the creation of man from all the rest of the creation is a very important fact that we must understand fully to know God’s plan for all his creation.
The fact is Man was a SPECIAL CREATION BY GOD. He created everything else, THEN HE CREATED MAN. The Lord then turned around and took a rib from Adam and created for the Man a Woman. This creative act was documented as MORE IMPORTANT than the Animal creation and all the rest. The reason was disclosed in the Creation account. Read the reason here:
“26 God said, Let Us [Father, Son, and Holy Spirit] make mankind in Our image, after Our likeness, and let them have complete authority over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the [tame] beasts, and over all of the earth, and over everything that creeps upon the earth.
27 So God created man in His own image, in the image and likeness of God He created him; male and female He created them.
28 And God blessed them and said to them, Be fruitful, multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it [using all its vast resources in the service of God and man]; and have dominion over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and over every living creature that moves upon the earth.
29 And God said, See, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the land and every tree with seed in its fruit; you shall have them for food.
30 And to all the animals on the earth and to every bird of the air and to everything that creeps on the ground—to everything in which there is the breath of life — I have given every green plant for food. And it was so,” Genesis 1:26-30 AMP.
The FIRST foundational principal God put in place in his Creation is clearly seen in the fact that MAN was created IN GOD’S IMAGE [IN HIS LIKENESS]. It is clear that Man was SPECIAL and DIFFERENT FROM ANIMALS [and all the rest of creation]. The fact is MAN WAS IN THE VERY IMAGE OF GOD HIMSELF. Man was made IN THE LIKENESS of God.
SECOND: We see and understand that God first created FOR ADAM a Woman to complete him. The Lord said, Man is alone and needs a help-meet to be with him:
So the NEED FOR A FAMILY did come up AT THE VERY BEGINNING of his Creation.
THIRD: We need to see WHAT God intended to do with this MAN AND WIFE [HIS INTENT WAS A…..”FAMILY”]. It is clearly stated in the verses above, when it says: LET THEM HAVE COMPLETE AUTHORITY over ALL THE CREATION. This is a PIVOTAL FACT that needs to be understand about the purpose of man. In this ORIGINAL STATEMENT about the EARLY FOUNDATIONAL PRINCIPALS of God, we learn that Mankind was to HAVE DOMINION OVER ALL THE EARTH.
God then made another (very important) statement:
BE FRUITFUL [Multiply and Fill the Earth]. It was clear that God’s purpose and plan was for Man to HAVE CHILDREN TO FILL THE EARTH WITH INHABITANTS. One only need read this Scripture wording to understand that the FIRST PRINCIPAL OF FOUNDATION TO MANKIND was and is ***(((TO MULTIPLY [TO HAVE CHILDREN AND TO RAISE FAMILIES OF MEN))), Genesis 1:28.
The Foundation of God is then clearly seen and understood. THE VERY FIRST ACT OF GOD TO MANKIND WAS TO COMMAND THEM TO BE A FAMILY. In this union they were supposed to populate the Earth, with Families of Mankind. It is clearly understood than that God FIRST ESTABLISHED THE FAMILY.
The Family was then commanded to HAVE DOMINION OVER ALL THE EARTH.
Now let me CONCLUDE WITH A COMMENTARY:
***(((The FOUNDING OF THE FAMILY did precede all other institutions of mankind.)))***
The one most important FOUNDATION is then the FAMILY. There is NO OTHER more important then the Family. No not even the Church. The fact is without the FAMILY the Church will not function correctly. Take the FAMILY OUT OF CHURCH; …… the Church will NOT GO FORWARD.
It was the ORIGINAL PLAN OF GOD TO GOVERN [***STARTING FROM…. THE FAMILY]. The Family then becomes the sole most important CREATION OF GOD. When and if anyone puts something else in the place of FAMILY, they destroy the very Foundation of God and thus afterward there will be only confusion, and struggle.
In this world today, FAMILIES have come under direct attack by the enemy. The enemy knows that GOD’S ORIGINAL PLAN WAS FOR A MAN AND WOMAN TO HAVE CHILDREN AND FOR THAT FAMILY TO HAVE DOMINION. He knows that if you destroy THE FIRST FOUNDATION then there is NO FOOTING for any other building to be built.
I know without a shadow of a doubt that you will not have a STRONG CHURCH, GOVERNMENT, or ANYTHING ELSE; without STRONG FAMILIES. This is the reason our society is facing the most serious problem ever faced before. It is because this society has MOVED AWAY FROM THE FAMILY. Real Families used to exist everywhere; the Church flourished and prospered, but the day came that the Family was divided. Now the modern Church is made up of Individuals divided. Dad’s without a wife, a wife without a husband, children without parents who are present. The Church is SICK AND WEAK because the Families are gone. This weakness has overspread into the LACK OF UNITY IN THE WHOLE FAMILY OF GOD, until there is NO UNITY AT ALL, only brokenness… much like the broken Families.
I have learned this from many years of serving as Pastor. Back in the days when FAMILIES were real and had a GOOD FOUNDATION AT HOME, then we had a REAL CHURCH. But now, most churches struggle without proper leadership and support. The Church has no money to sustain itself because it is filled with hurting people; people on fixed and inadequate funds, people who struggle just to maintain their own lives. When Families suffer, the Church always suffer.
Again the Church is greatly hindered because there is NO FAMILY [A DADDY “MAN” AND A MOMMA “WOMAN”. Today’s children grow up PRODUCTS OF BROKEN FAMILIES and do live effected by the fact they did not have this Family. Today’s psychologist are telling us EVERY CHILD NEEDS A FATHER AND MOTHER in order to avid psychological dependencies in their life. A chile that was raised without a Father is hurt. Also, A mother is a Vital Part of the Training of a Child.
The result of the LACK OF REAL FAMILIES has filled this life [in church and elsewhere] with people who are STILL CHILDREN though they are grown up and supposed to be functioning as adults. This is why there is so much CHILDLIKE BEHAVIOR.
It is easy then to understand why the enemy wants to destroy the FAMILY by substituting FALSE FAMILIES. It is a misconception to think that TWO OF ANY SEX can create A FAMILY. Again, we know that GOD MADE FIRST THE FAMILY AND THAT FAMILY WAS ONE MAN AND ONE WOMAN THAT “PRODUCED AND RAISED” HEALTHY CHILDREN.
THE ENEMY WANTS TO DESTROY THE CHURCH. Right now it appears he has done his work well in many places. Churches all around us all are LESS THAN THE BEST AND HAVE LOST THEIR IMPACT.
But, thank God, some REAL FAMILIES DO STILL EXIST TODAY. I am a product of a GOOD FAMILY. My Father was always there and taught me and trained me in the Way of the Lord. My Mother was A GODLY WOMAN who sit me on her knees and told me many things. She Prayed for me, and I AM HERE TODAY BECAUSE OF HER AND DAD. I love my Family and thank God for them. I GREW UP IN CHURCH TO BELIEVE IN THE LORD.
BUT… Sad to say, today in this land of America, FEW CHILDREN HAVE FAMILIES. ***I SAID… FEW… CHILDREN…. HAVE A FAMILY!!!! Many Children are thrown out on life without foundations.
There is a reason for the NEWS WE READ TODAY IN THE NEWSPAPER about the MARRIAGE LAWS UNDER ATTACK. We who know the Word of God should know the answer to this problem. We who know God, know for sure WHO IS BEHIND THE PROBLEMS WE FACE. His name is lucifer. [Satan, the old dragon, the deceiver, the fallen one cast out of Heaven, beelzebub].
The fact is, this nation will cease to be strong and sure as long as there are NO FAMILIES. The Church will be weak and inadequate as long as there are NO FAMILIES. The further this country goes away from MARRIAGE BETWEEN A MAN AND WOMAN (as God originally instituted them) IT WILL CONTINUE TO BE DESTROYED.
