Oh To Be Wise Meditations

(This is the account of the heavens and the earth when they were created, when the Lord God made the earth and the heavens. Now no shrub had yet appeared on the earth and no plant had yet sprung up, for the Lord God had not sent rain on the earth and there was no one to work the ground, but streams came up from the earth and watered the whole surface of the ground. Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being. Gen. 2: 4-5) Notice that Scripture wants us to realize that the earth was not fully developed, there was no one to work the ground. Then the LORD made man and placed him in a garden called Eden. I find it amazing how the LORD created man for a purpose, for a being. This is why men are so drive oriented, focused on one goal at a time. Men look for a hill to die on, to pour out there blood, sweat and tears and expend all strength. We are wild at heart, praise God he gave man a woman to work along side him at this thing we call life. I will touch on the women aspect tomorrow, how Eve was brought in the perfection of Eden. This is why we are to cultivate the women and care for her like Adam did for Eden. Instead man worshipped this great goddess God created and sold his soul to the Devil for her. My key point for this writing today is notice God had a plan and being for man. What that would have looked like through Adam we will never know because of sin. But Jesus came to earth as the second Adam and showed man how to live. He was every bit of a man as well as God. He is our example for being man after God's own heart. We still have our Eden's here on earth that we must provide and care for. We still have our Eve's that we must honor and cultivate them to be all that Christ wants them to be. The Scriptures tell us, “The first man, Adam, became a living person.” But the last Adam—that is, Christ—is a life-giving Spirit.

What comes first is the natural body, then the spiritual body comes later. Adam, the first man, was made from the dust of the earth, while Christ, the second man, came from heaven. Earthly people are like the earthly man, and heavenly people are like the heavenly man. Just as we are now like the earthly man, we will someday be like the heavenly man.
