Genesis 3:15; Roman’s 5:19-21
Sometimes in the English language the rules sometimes don’t make sense. Like ‘parkway’ where we can drive fast, and where we park our cars is called a ‘driveway’. Or like silent letters, why is the ‘L’ in there when I’m supposed to leave it out.
He brings this up in regards to ideal functionality. Function. Everything has an activity. A way for how this thing is supposed to work. The lights in the ceiling that we are sitting under right now has a function. It has a way that it operates.
Function and purpose are not always synonymous. We don’t always live out our purpose by function. It’s possible to be functional while you are not in your purpose. One can function even while they are out of purpose. Ones function is enabled…we become overly obsessed with function that we forget our purpose. So we end up settling for instead of going after what we don’t have. Perhaps you are in a place where your function is not.
Perhaps that agitation in you is your soul saying, ‘Show me my purpose!’
Eve does not (first) show up to Adam until he is operating in purpose.
Lord show me my purpose. I don’t want any relationship I want what You have purposed for me. I don’t want just any job, any income, Lord, show me my purpose.
Stuck on function, but not really seeing the purpose. If you’re not ashamed to admit this…those who struggle with their sexuality struggle with this bc their focus is on function and not on purpose.
If you will sit down with the Lord you will see that everything that was needed was provided. The first thing that He establishes is the environment. When He speaks light He speaks it into the darkness. When He speaks fish, He talks to the waters, when He speaks crawling things, He speaks to the ground. When He speaks man, He talks to Himself.
If we want to be healthy, successful, we have to be found in God. Because even deep down in your soul you know deep down I (you) need to be in God.
If we want more, if we desire peace, it can only be found in God.
Man was created to reflect God, He establishes mans ability to be ____.
When He makes women, He made woman to help. He looked at Adam and realized there was none suitable for him. Even the serpent had an ability. “The serpent was cunning…” Cunning means to be sharp and to be smooth. The bible says this, God made it. God made the serpant.
Be fruitful, multiply, duplicate, I’ve given you the ability to create and to establish your self. Have ability and over come the earth. …his instruction was to subdue. The animals came to him, he gave them a name and that’s what they were.
Look and realize they were all functioning. The snake was being cunning, the woman was helping Adam to eat. She brought it to him and he ate. He(Adam) establishes a new order. They no longer live in the comfort of being covered. Adam established a point where they had to cover themselves.
The issue was not that they didn’t have what they needed.
I want you to know something, you have what it takes.
…even now in their error, they were still capable, even in their ability …even when you mess up, God still has a purpose over your life! Even when there is alcohol on your breath, purpose is still covering over you. You have what it takes. Adam doesn’t use his power against satan, he uses it against himself. So death reigned from Adam. Because Adam used his function outside of his purpose.
We very passively train our family to become agnostic when we sporadically go to church. (And tell them to go to school and we go to work…)
When God finds error and ____, He makes a plan for redemption. He already came with the Savior.
While we were yet sinners, Christ died for the ungodly.(Romans 5:8)
He brought redemption. He says I’m going to bring the One that will break the mold. I’m bring up One that will live in their purpose.
Did you know that the word ‘subdue’ is also meant to crush?
Jesus is not just our Savior, Jesus is our example.
What has come against you is not meant to kill you, what comes against you, you are to crush it. Jesus intended to crush what Eve passified.
We gotta stop pacifying what is supposed to be CRUSHED! Counseling this, holding un-forgiveness, having grievances unnecessarily. Just forgive.
Jesus breaks the cycle of suffering because He conquers what His parents did not.
The cycle of divorce or poverty the cycle of abuse it’s time to CRUSH IT!
Cast down every imagination. (2 Corinthians 10:5)
