GENESIS 1:1 “ In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”
The Bible reveals that God not only created the heaven and the earth, but He also created every thing in them. That includes the mountains, lakes, rivers, streams, and even all the fowls of the air, beasts of every kind, and everything that moves upon the earth. Then the Bible reveals that God looked at it all and said, “ It is good, it is very good.” But God was not completely happy with it all. His very nature is to love, and He was so proud of it all; God wanted to share it. So- GENESIS 1:26-28 “And God said, let us make man in our image, and 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.” So God created man in His own Image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them.
And God blessed them, and God said unto them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and replenish the earth; and subdue it." It is reckoned God was talking to His Angels when all this was happening. At this point many would try to imagine how God accomplished all this, but no mere man will ever know or understand how God did it.
If we were created in the image of God, it is believable that we look like the physical appearance of God. We are told we are made from the dust of the earth and God breathed into the nostrils of man and he became a living soul. That makes man completely different from any other of God’s creations. When God breathed life into the nostrils of man he was also given a Spirit that no other creation has. Also man became a living soul. Man does not have a soul, but he is a living soul. God actually gave man a part of Himself for him to become a soul. God is the only One that can create a soul, and praise God, He is the only One that can destroy a soul. Satan can trouble your flesh; even make it sick, and perhaps even kill it, but he does not have the power to touch your soul. But be aware and believe your Bible teaches God has the power to destroy both your soul and body in hell.
It would be ridiculous to doubt why He created man as male and female. He commanded them to be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth. That is only possible because they are male and female, which permits the world to become perpetual; and in reality it is the only thing that is eternally perpetual. Everything God has created with life has the ability to reproduce after their kind; therefore all living creatures have male and female characteristics.
But now as a summation to this subject, God has given man priority over all His other creations. Man has used many of the other creations to become food for his existence. Man is truly the greatest of all God’s creations; but men have throughout the ages greatly disappointed God. If we sincerely study creation we will fear Him and love Him for that is what He created man to do. God is the Almighty and Powerful; but He is LOVE, and has the ability to forgive. Where would you and I be if He did not?
