WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 20 – 26
God creates with words. He created Adam in His own image with words of dominion. Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion…, over all the earth….” (Genesis 1:26).
In Adam, He reproduced Himself. God gave Adam His own authority over everything on this planet and crowned him with His glory.
What is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that You visit him? For You have made him a little lower than the angels, and You have crowned him with glory and honor. (Psalm 8:4-5)
God created Adam to rule – a living speaking spirit, like his Creator. God never changes. He used the same process by which He created Adam to create Jesus the last Adam: His words.
And so it is written, “The first man Adam became a living being.” The last Adam became a life-giving spirit. (1 Corinthians 15:45.)
Jesus is The WORD. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (John 1:1).
The WORD was made flesh, spoken into the earth by God’s words through the mouths of His prophets until the Seed was born through whom all the nations of the earth would be blessed. In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.” (Genesis 22:18)
Through His words Jesus operated in dominion in the earth.
Walked on water, Now in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went to them, walking on the sea. And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, “It is a ghost!” And they cried out for fear. (Matthew 14:25-26)
Spoke to fig trees. And seeing from afar a fig tree having leaves, He went to see if perhaps He would find something on it. When He came to it, He found nothing but leaves, for it was not the season for figs. In response Jesus said to it, “Let no one eat fruit from you ever again.” (Mark 11:13-14)
Transcended time. Then they willingly received Him into the boat, and immediately the boat was at the land where they were going. (John 6:21)
