THE CREATED MAN
- Sermon By: Pastor Gbolahan Odunsi
One of the greatest mystery of the kingdom of God upon the earth is the creation of man.
A subject that went a as making the angels including the devil to wonder among themselves,
“And the Lord said, behold the man is become as one of us” Gen 3:22
The story of creation was born out of God’s intent to duplicate himself into a vessel known as man. An agenda designed to makes God accessible on earth for a purpose which angels find hard to understand.
“To wit that God was in Christ reconciling the world unto himself not imputing their trespasses unto them and hath committed unto us the sword of reconciliation.” 2 Cor5:19
If reconciliation was the secret plan of God, then we must of necessity begin to approach it. That approach in effect represents the wisdom of God for which man was destined to become a role model and to made in the image and likeness of God.
“And God said, let us make in our image after our likeness” Gen 1:26
As an image of God, man became a spirit being after the likeness and image of God just as it i written in God’s word:
“That which is born of the flesh flesh and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.” John 3:6
In other words, the creation man is the spiritual man and the spiritual man is the man in Christ.
I believe blessings we pray for been provided for in the covenant through the blood of Jesus. You see, what we call blessing, God calls promise and that is why you and I can be rest assured that through salvation, God has made an arrangement to fulfill his promises which is our blessings.
Our responsibility therefore is to comply with God’s terms for the wing of his promises before we can partake in his blessings. Hebrews 5:2
