The lost dominion !

Gen 1:28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

God blessed Adam and eve with above blessing. With blessing God gave them power of dominion on all animals, birds, all creatures. Which means all living creature must obey Adam and even just like our pet dog obeys,  when say sit it sits down,  when we say get up it gets up. Adam could have ruled these animals for many years , before he fell.

After Adam and Eve sinned,  they lost their perfection. They lost their dominion on all these creatures. Not only Adam was responsible for sin.

In Genesis 6:2,3- That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
Gen 6:5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man [was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

Gen 6:6 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
Gen 6:7 And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.
  The the  above incident of marrying can be compared to love marriage (sin in the sight of God) . The sons of God chose the daughters of man because of beauty ( fair ). God is not pleased with it. Because God gave, Eve to Adam,  Rebekah to Isaac,  God knows and decides who to be our life partner.

Hence during  blessing Noah,  God blesses him like this way :

Gen 8:17 Bring forth with thee every living thing that is with thee, of all flesh, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth; that they may breed abundantly in the earth, and be fruitful, and multiply upon the earth.

The missing thing in the second time when God blessed them is the loss of dominion and subdue of all living creature. Which God had given them earlier.

But good news for us today is   our ” Lord saviour Jesus Christ “ regained the lost dominion. By the grace and blood  of Jesus Christ we get the dominion in eternity. Let us hope for that eternal glory.

Isaiah 11:6 The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.

Purpose of birth of Jesus christ

  Jesus Christ was born in this world for to correct the mistake of fallen man. In this month of december we remember and celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.

The relationship of God and adam was like father and son. Adam is called the son of God. Since the fall of Adam, God sent him out of eden garden. Eden garden had the tree of life, since man committed sin, father had to take strict decision and sent him out.  God prevented man to eat fruit of tree of life and live in fallen sinful nature for eternal.
Hence our saviour Jesus christ was born to correct man’s sin. Jesus Christ way to correcting mankind was different way. He gave only two Commandments. Two commandments were of Commandments of Love. Jesus christ led a perfect life, sacrificed himself for the redemption of mankind.
The relation of Jesus and church is compared to bridegroom and bride. This relationship is stronger than the previous relationship of  father and son i.e. God and adam.
Hence we who live in the period if grace enjoy the mercy of God  for His forgiveness. 

Jesus loved us so much, that He humbled himself,came down from heaven, was born on this earth in human form , overcame sin, led a perfect holy life , died on cross and resurrected. Now He is waiting for His beloved Bride(Church).   let us be  prepared to meet our bridegroom.
” For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” John 3:16

Oh! that LOVE sought me !!

“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”- Romans 5:8

 Even thou man committed sin and fell from perfection , but still God didn’t give up his eternal plan concerning mankind. He gave them commandments and law, sacrifice of animals was not able to correct man’s sin. 

Finally Jesus Christ Himself came in the form of human led a perfect life in this world  to redeem us from sin. That is the Love of Calvary. A love that cannot be described by words. His expression of love to man was to sacrifice himself to win man kind. 

Past thousands of years since the creation of man, but still God seeks , saves him from the sin. That is the greatest love that God has on man.

We are the most blessed people on this earth, whom God has saved. Let us pray to Jesus Christ , so that other unsaved people should also get saved. Praise God always.
