You always know what a baby animal will become and do. Never for a human baby. Why? Study Genesis First – 22

Animals: sleep, eat, reproduce, and survive, and they do it remarkably well. But that’s all they do: Puppy or calf’s behavior and accomplishments will always be the same.

Genesis 7:15
animals ONLY possess the breath of life (Ruach – SPIRIT).

Animals are animated by ruach-spirit alone.

Humans: every child is different! You cannot predict their adult behavior or accomplishments.
God gave humans rulership over Earth – each manages their chosen path differently.
Humans possess something animals lack.

Genesis 2:7
the LORD breathed the breath of life (Neshama – Divine Essence) into humans;

Genesis reveals humans are not animals.

Creation Events Unfold God’s Astonishing Master Plan for Humankind. – 23

  1. Creates Environment: Earth as a training ground for His children.
  2. Creates Humans: His future sons and daughters.
  3. Creates Garden of Eden: Humans with God, the meaning of Emmanuel
  4. Creates Sabbath: Their 1st event before any work.

Strong H7673.
שָׁבַת Sabbath: cease (from sin), rest by applying God’s way, confirmed by Christ.


Matthew 11:28-29
Come unto me, all you that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me (Our responsibility); for I am meek and lowly in heart: and you shall find rest unto your souls.

Study Genesis First. The whole plan of God is there.

Genesis Chronology Unlocks God’s Purpose for Creating Humanity – 24

In Genesis 1:1, the backdrop is Heaven and Earth, but the overlooked verse 2 is crucial.

The start is tohu va bohu confusion.

  1. God’s first goal: is to create Light. Representing Christ (John 1) – all things are put under his feet (1 Cor. 15:27).
  2. God’s second goal is from the void of Day 1 to the Sabbath, ceasing from sin and resting in God’s peace, the ultimate 7th Day
  3. God’s third goal is confusion progressing to “not ashamed” (Gen. 2:25 means not confused; see Strongs H954)

1 Corinthians 14:33
God is not the “author” of confusion but of peace!

That’s the author’s story in Genesis 1-2.

Incredible Creation and Destiny of the Man and Woman in Genesis 2 – 25

Why only ONE verse for the creation man and FOUR for the woman?

Genesis 2:7 breath of life is NESHAMA
This is the ONE ESSENTIAL component that makes humans human.
Each human gets this at birth, and it returns to God at death.

Mind-Body Problem Solved explains that humans are a composition of dust + neshama + ruach, material + immaterial.

Woman = bone and flesh of the man. Study Genesis 3:20 “the mother of all living (H2416).”

H2416 > H2421
חָיָה châyâh
KJV translations – recover, repair, restore to life, revive, save..

Woman is a resume of salvation explained in the book Origin of Woman.

God States His Entire Higher Purpose for Humanity in Genesis 1 and 2 – 26

Some think there’s confusion when God creates man + woman in Genesis 1 and 2
Absolutely not, Chapter 2 complements and completes Chapter 1

Genesis 1:28

  1. Human Dominion: In modern terms, sustainable ecology is a key subject today.
    — a. Human impact on our land, air, and water
  2. Humans Multiply, establishing families, and nations
    — a. Today consider the mental health of children and adults in society

Genesis 2: details the same subjects

  1. Dominion is reaffirmed with dress and keep Garden of Eden
  2. Multiply: end of chapter 2. Adam + Eve one flesh is sexual relations including procreation for establishing family

Study Genesis 1 and 2 to see they go together like a hand-in-glove.

Genesis Reveals 2 Creations. The Physical is Evident, but the Spiritual is Hidden – 27

1 Corinthians 15:46
… not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural…

  1. 1st Natural, physical Creation, Days 1-6
  2. 2nd Spiritual Creation, Day 7

The proper translation of Genesis 2:3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because in it he had rested from (with) all his work (humans) which God created and made (an infinitive in Hebrew to make).

God is making humans on the Sabbath. This makeover is a spiritual conversion.
That is the Sabbath (cease from sin and rest in God’s way)

Physical Creation is finished, but spiritual Creation is ongoing.

1st Physical then 2nd Spiritual. We Rule & Teach NOW to become FUTURE Kings & Priests – 28

God gave humans their dual purpose in

Genesis 1:28
God said to them … multiply (family) … and have dominion (rulership) over … earth.


Revelation 1:5-6
Jesus Christ… has made us kings and priests.

  1. Future:
    — 1. We’ll be Kings with dominion – rulership
    — 2. Priests teach – Deuteronomy 24:8
  2. Now:
    — 1. In our vocations, we rule or manage our earthly resources.
    — 2. In our families, we teach children

Government and Family. Rulership and Education

Our profession & family are the perfect physical training situations for developing into spiritual Kings and Priests.
