Gen. 1:27 Gd created man in His wn image, in the image f Gd He created him; male and female He created them. Gen. 1:28 Gd blessed them; and Gd said t them, Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule ver the fish f the sea and ver the birds f the sky and ver every living thing that mves n the earth. Gen. 1:29 Then Gd said, Behld, I have given yu every plant yielding seed that is n the surface f all the earth, and every tree which has fruit yielding seed; it shall be fd fr yu; Gen. 1:30 and t every beast f the earth and t every bird f the sky and t every thing that mves n the earth which has life, I have given every green plant fr fd ; and it was s. Gen. 1:31 Gd saw all that He had made, and behld, it was very gd. And there was evening and there was mrning, the sixth day.

2 Genesis 1D! 2 By Gd s hands, nt by His vice Culd He have spken men int existence? Yes The use f His hands suggest much greater cncern and persnal invlvement and even lve And what f the materials Gd used? In all ther cases, the things being made are frmed frm nthing r ut f the mass described in verse 2 In this case, man is made ut f an existing material: the earth itself This difference is critically, supremely imprtant In fact, this is s imprtant, it determines the curse f human histry until the Kingdm arrives We will see why in Chapter 3 When Gd begins t make man, He begins with a new statement Gd says let us create The wrd fr Gd in Hebrew is Elhim, which is a plural wrd The verb fr create is als plural Gd is shwn as mre than ne Persn even in the first chapter f Genesis Gd then creates Man The wrd fr man is adam, which literally means earth r dirt in Hebrew In chapter 1, the stry is telling us that Gd created mankind n Day 6 male and female We see this cnfirmed in chapter 2 Fr nw, the authr is cntent t simply men man in the general sense s that mankind is accunted fr in the stry He gives mre detail n this event in Chapter Verse By Verse Ministry f San Antni ( May be cpied and distributed prvided the dcument is reprduced in its entirety, including this cpyright statement, and n fee is cllected fr its distributin.

3 Genesis 1D! 3 The text says Man is created in Gd s image (r likeness), r accrding t His likeness (r His pattern) This detail alne cnfirms that Gd intends t set man apart frm the rest f creatin Gd is chse t express His nature and character int a creature that has the capacity t appreciate it and wrship it Such a gal requires a creature with the capacity t knw Gd in a manner similar t the way Gd knws Himself This is what in His image ultimately means S in what ways are we in Gd s image r like Gd? FIrst, in ur ability t exist as Gd exists We have the capacity t share in many f the character attributes that Gd Himself embdies Gd is the authr f lve, grace, mercy, charity In a very real sense, Gd establishes these cncepts by His very existence Gd IS lve, grace, etc. Furthermre, we can exhibit them t ne anther as Gd demnstrates them t us S we share in an existence that mirrrs Gd s wn nature and character Unlike the rest f Creatin Secndly, ur ability t make mral chices r decisins T bey r disbey authrity Finally, ur capacity t knw and relate t Gd Our intellect, reasning and ur capacity t wrship and glrify Gd The rest f creatin gives Gd glry by its mere existence We can g beynd that and glrify Gd by ur will 2011 Verse By Verse Ministry f San Antni ( May be cpied and distributed prvided the dcument is reprduced in its entirety, including this cpyright statement, and n fee is cllected fr its distributin.

4 Genesis 1D! 4 All f this adds up t a simple statement Gd created us in His image s that we culd have a meaningful relatinship with Him All these attributes result the capacity fr true relatinship A greater degree f relatinship than even the angels enjy Christ was the perfect example f what a man, created in Gd s image, culd achieve in terms f relatinship Perfectly bedience, perfectly pleasing t the Father, perfectly giving Him glry, One with Him in relatinship By faith in Christ, when we becme brn again int the family f Gd, we are called Gd s sns And we cme t share an even greater prtin f His nature We share in Christ s perfect nature t the degree we set aside ur ld self and pursue the knwledge f Christ in His wrd Cl. 3:9 D nt lie t ne anther, since yu laid aside the ld self with its evil practices, Cl. 3:10 and have put n the new self wh is being renewed t a true knwledge accrding t the image f the One wh created him Eph. 4:20 But yu did nt learn Christ in this way, Eph. 4:21 if indeed yu have heard Him and have been taught in Him, just as truth is in Jesus, Eph. 4:22 that, in reference t yur frmer manner f life, yu lay aside the ld self, which is being crrupted in accrdance with the lusts f deceit, Eph. 4:23 and that yu be renewed in the spirit f yur mind, Eph. 4:24 and put n the new self, which in the likeness f Gd has been created in righteusness and hliness f the truth. As we cme t faith and walk in that faith thrugh a grwing knwledge f Gd in His wrd, we actually mve clser t the state Gd intended when we were created We becme mre like the image f Gd and less like ur sinful selves Gd tells men t fill earth, subdue it and rule ver animals Rule = nadah = dminin 2011 Verse By Verse Ministry f San Antni ( May be cpied and distributed prvided the dcument is reprduced in its entirety, including this cpyright statement, and n fee is cllected fr its distributin.

Meat wuld require death n death With the intrductin f chay nephesh, we have anther huge prblem with the Day Age thery and evlutin Day Age (evlutin) requires death t advance creatin Bible says death came nly after man sinned (Chap 3) N death until then Rm. 5:12 Therefre, just as thrugh ne man sin entered int the wrld, and death thrugh sin, and s death spread t all men, because all sinned Rm. 5:13 fr until the Law sin was in the wrld, but sin is nt imputed when there is n law. Rm. 5:14 Nevertheless death reigned frm Adam until Mses, even ver thse wh had nt sinned in the likeness f the ffense f Adam, wh is a type f Him wh was t cme. S absent sin, and death, there can be n pprtunity t eat anything except plants Sixth day chart cmpletin (create vs. fill) Man is apart f Day six because we share much in cmmn with the animal kingdm in a physical sense But the text makes clear that we have an entirely different kind f spirit And the wrld and everything in it was given t man as ur dminin Gen. 2:1 Thus the heavens and the earth were cmpleted, and all their hsts.

Ex. 20:11 Fr in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in them, and rested n the seventh day; therefre the LORD blessed the sabbath day and made it hly. Deut. 5:15 Yu shall remember that yu were a slave in the land f Egypt, and the LORD yur Gd brught yu ut f there by a mighty hand and by an utstretched arm; therefre the LORD yur Gd cmmanded yu t bserve the sabbath day. Accrding t Scripture, Gd s rest was intended t set an example fr the Jewish natin under the Law We knw that Gd desn t tell Adam t bserve a rest Adam des wrk, but he desn t get a cmmand t rest Als, Gd s rest was NOT a physical rest Gd is Spirit nly and therefre He didn t need physical rejuvenatin His rest was nt physical in nature By ceasing frm His wrk, Gd was setting an example Therefre, the Sabbath s ultimate purpse was nt t prvide us with physical rest In the same way that water baptism was nt cmmanded t ensure we clean ur bdies f sin Just as water baptism was a picture f a mre imprtant spiritual event Similarly, physical rest n the Sabbath was always intended t be a picture f a greater spiritual rest The weekly physical rest Gd cmmanded fr the Jews was a picture f smething even greater What spiritual truth des the Sabbath picture then? 2011 Verse By Verse Ministry f San Antni ( May be cpied and distributed prvided the dcument is reprduced in its entirety, including this cpyright statement, and n fee is cllected fr its distributin.

8 Genesis 1D! 8 First, cnsider we have been saved and transfrmed by Christ 2Cr. 5:17 Therefre if anyne is in Christ, he is a new creature; the ld things passed away; behld, new things have cme. 2Cr. 5:18 Nw all these things are frm Gd, wh recnciled us t Himself thrugh Christ and gave us the ministry f recnciliatin, Secnd, Scripture says that ur recnciliatin with Gd is the result f a wrk that Gd Himself did n ur behalf Heb. 10:11 Every priest stands daily ministering and ffering time after time the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins; Heb. 10:12 but He, having ffered ne sacrifice fr sins fr all time, SAT DOWN AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD, Heb. 10:13 waiting frm that time nward UNTIL HIS ENEMIES BE MADE A FOOTSTOOL FOR HIS FEET. Heb. 10:14 Fr by ne ffering He has perfected fr all time thse wh are sanctified. Gd did the wrk f ur salvatin We did nthing t accmplish ur salvatin We were simply the beneficial After the wrk f redemptin was cmplete, Christ sat dwn He rested r ceased frm His wrk nce redemptin was cmpleted Likewise, Gd did the same in the time f His creatin Gd did all the wrk f creatin We did nthing t assist in the creatin f the wrld Man was simply the beneficiary Once Gd was dne creating, He ceased and rested S did the wrk n the crss and we were the beneficiary (withut ding any wrk f ur wn) And if we have trusted in Gd s wrk fr ur salvatin, then we knw that ur wn wrk cntributes nthing t that salvatin 2011 Verse By Verse Ministry f San Antni ( May be cpied and distributed prvided the dcument is reprduced in its entirety, including this cpyright statement, and n fee is cllected fr its distributin.

The Sabbath is a perfect picture f hw the Law is a tutr t lead us t Christ In keeping the law, a man s rest n the Sabbath is nly temprary After the Saturday Sabbath, each man s wrk resumes n Sunday The rest was nt lasting N man culd rest securely and perpetually n the Sabbath He always knew wrk wuld begin again the next day This pattern was als reflected in the sacrifices required under the Law The animals were sacrificed cntinually t atne fr sin Prving that the Law itself wasn t a remedy fr sin Whatever rest was made available by the Law was temprary, just as atnement was temprary Trying t remain righteus by keeping the law r any ther system f wrks will ultimately frustrate us because ut effrts are never-ending There can never be any assurance f salvatin, n rest frm the wrks There is never an indicatin that enugh has been dne Each day brings the need t d mre Any rest ne might achieve is temprary at best In the end, any man wh relies n his wn wrks t please Gd will die with his wrk incmplete 2011 Verse By Verse Ministry f San Antni ( May be cpied and distributed prvided the dcument is reprduced in its entirety, including this cpyright statement, and n fee is cllected fr its distributin.

Heb. 4:2 Fr indeed we have had gd news preached t us, just as they als; but the wrd they heard did nt prfit them, because it was nt united by faith in thse wh heard. Heb. 4:3 Fr we wh have believed enter that rest, just as He has said, AS I SWORE IN MY WRATH, THEY SHALL NOT ENTER MY REST, althugh His wrks were finished frm the fundatin f the wrld. Heb. 4:9 S there remains a Sabbath rest fr the peple f Gd. Heb. 4:10 Fr the ne wh has entered His rest has himself als rested frm his wrks, as Gd did frm His. Entering Gd s rest = entering int salvatin Gd did the wrk f creatin fr six days and then ceased frm that wrk Then man enjyed the wrk f Gd and shared in Gd s rest Similarly, Gd des all the wrk f ur salvatin in the sinless life f Christ And by faith we can jin in that rest by resting frm ur wn attempts as righteusness And we participate in the rest f Christ 2011 Verse By Verse Ministry f San Antni ( May be cpied and distributed prvided the dcument is reprduced in its entirety, including this cpyright statement, and n fee is cllected fr its distributin.
