Among the absurdities of secular humanism’s defiant, religious sounding theory, Evolution (last century’s Carl Sagan and now his protégé, Neil deGrasse Tyson both view a suddenly exploding out of nothing cosmos as now an eternal, living thing to which they impart god-like qualities and admire to the point of worship), is man’s mysterious appearance in and ascendency from primordial waters to the top of the food chain after millions of years. Since it is a matter of faith, I and every aspiring strong man of God in the image of Jesus Christ choose to believe the testimony of God in His Word that He purposely created man from the dust of the earth to rule over His creation (Genesis 1:26, 2:7)!
Truly, man was created in the image and likeness of God as a race of rulers to rule as God does (Psalm 103:19) and with the divine nature and character (Exodus 34:5-8; Deuteronomy 32:4; Isaiah 6:1-5; 1 John 4:7-8; Revelation 4). This purpose of God for His creature remained intact as man in mortal form was divided into male and female for the purpose of procreation (Genesis 1:27-28, 2:18-25, 3:20, 5:1-2) and after their sin induced by Satan since in judgment, God also announced a Deliverer (Genesis 3:1-19, 21-24). He came as foretold to save and restore the fallen race of rulers: God the King and Savior in mortal flesh (Isaiah 7:10-14; Matthew 1:18-25, 18:11)!
Save and restore the Son of God who is “the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person” did for those who believe by His sacrificial death, burial and resurrection from the dead in which after, He bodily returned and took His seat “at the right hand of the Majesty on high,” (Hebrews 1:1-4, NKJV). Why all of this to-do over man? Because God loves man and would not be thwarted in the divine purpose that man should rule over the creation (Hebrews 2:5-15)! Where Adam had failed in disobedience, Jesus Christ succeeded in perfect obedience after being tempted and tested in every way possible as a Man (Hebrews 2:16-18, 4:14-16).
Jesus Christ, the unique God-Man has fully earned the right to rule under the Father both in Heaven, the heavens and earth (Matthew 28:18; Philippians 2:6-11)! He has replaced the first Adam as the federal head of mankind and is its Judge (Matthew 25:31-46; John 5:24-30; 1 Corinthians 15:21-28, 45-49; Revelation 20:11-15). Those that have looked to Christ in faith for salvation have been brought into the divine family as sons (John 1:12-13; Romans 8:14-16, Ephesians 2:19-21), are destined to reign with Him (Luke 22:28-30; 2 Timothy 2:11-12) and share in His glorious, eternal inheritance guaranteed by the indwelling Holy Spirit (Romans 8:17; Ephesians 1:11-14).
Indeed, in Christ and after His image, we who belong to Him completely fulfill the original divine plan that man be king/priests--a holy race of rulers (1 Peter 2:4-5, 9-10; Revelation 1:4-6)! It is our destiny to implement the righteous Kingdom rule of God with Christ beginning in the physical creation with this earth (Revelation 1:7-8, 2:25-29, 5:8-10, 20:4) and reaching into the spiritual realm since we will also judge angels (1 Corinthians 6:1-3). Therefore, Jesus Christ is called “King of kings and Lord of lords” to the glory of God the Father (1 Timothy 6:15; Revelation 19:16, NKJV)! In the divine nature and character of Christ God crafts in us, our rule will and is to be now just and merciful.
Supposedly superior to the present mortal rule of men from Adam’s seed still bound by sin and satanic shackles, the rule of professing Christian men at this hour in three major areas important to God comes up short. In God’s plan to restore men, He equips His sons first to rule self (Proverbs 16:32; Galatians 5:16-25; 1 Thessalonians 4:1-8), then to become outstanding husbands and fathers in the home our second rule which is also the preparation ground finally, for rule in God’s house churches are to recognize (1 Timothy 3:1-13). However, as He is shown in Psalm 82, God stands in the midst of us to judge and what does He see?
Men who profess to know and be related to Him by faith as family refusing to obey His Word. Instead, every man does what is right in his own eyes as if we had no King, (Judges 17:6). They rule unjustly and show partiality. As the authors of confusion, they are to the letter as foretold in 2 Timothy 3:1-5. Therefore, be warned: the Judge of judges shows no partiality. While He has promised the destiny of eternal rule to His sons related to Him by faith at present, it will come only to those that persevere in pleasing Him out of that faith as seen in their deeds not the words of a profession long ago made (Romans 1:16-17, 2:5-11; Galatians 6:7-10; Hebrews 3; James 2:14-26). The risen, living Christ continues His cry among American churches, “Who is on the Lord’s side?”
Surely, especially the young souls of this 21st century will ask me, “What is the big deal about women leading men in the churches? They are doing so everywhere else in the world. Aren’t you just being sexist, legalistic and judgmental?” If the matter of divine order was not to be taken seriously, then I am thoroughly convinced God would not have me wasting my time bothering with it as it concerns restoring men or for any other reason. However, divine order is the critical issue of this present age. Since fallen angels and mankind have rebelled against it, the Holy God has pronounced judgment on both! God is a God of order throughout all of existence (Jeremiah 23:24).
As the Lord led me to write about in The Strong Man Of God: Back To Basics, the divine Family of Father, Son and Holy Spirit have order within their triunity and equality as God. God the Father reigns as absolute supreme, sovereign with the Son and Holy Spirit in joyful submission. The Holy Spirit carries out the will of the Father and the Son. From eternity, the triune God has reigned over the environs and creatures of the spiritual realm (Exodus 3:13-14; Psalm 90:2). Led by a single rebel, some of the holy angels created in the order of their domain and ranks rebelled against God to be condemned to everlasting fire (Ezekiel 28:11-19; Matthew 25:41; Revelation 12:3-4, 20:10).
It is written: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth,” (Genesis 1:1, NKJV). With that statement as the opening of the divine commissioned written communication to mankind through Moses, God makes the unequivocal declaration that God is the Creator of the entire physical creation or what is called today, the cosmos which according to the Encarta Dictionary is “the universe considered as an ordered and integrated whole.” Indeed, the order that exists in the universe from the smallest particles to the largest galaxies in the billions filled with solar systems and planets such as our earth in orderly procession is mind boggling (Psalm 147:4-5; Isaiah 40:25-26)!
Clearly, the God of order created the cosmos with order! Even the most cynical fools among scientists today that say “there is no God,” must acknowledge the staggering order of the cosmos (Psalm 14:1-3, 19:1-6, NKJV). Our Creator even created His cosmos, the earth and its contents in an orderly fashion leading to the apex and ultimate purpose for the divine work: the creation of man to rule over all that God had created (Genesis 1:2-26; Psalm 8; Hebrews 2:5-8a). God gave mortal man purpose and order (Genesis 1:27-28, 2:7). Man dwelt in a body of order and could appreciate not only the technical wonder of the creation that surrounded him, but its beauty (Genesis 2:8-14).
In the order God gave man, God retained the right of sovereign Headship as Creator giving him tasks and a commandment (Genesis 2:15-17). After creating his female companion from him for him in accord with the divine order of marriage, she led them to rebel against God (Genesis 2:18-3:6). Nevertheless, their sin did not cause God to change the divine order of marriage. As I wrote in an April 2011 Commentary for another platform, “Man as male and female in marriage is God's orderly program for them to fulfill His purposes in this age. Man the male as the head of his family--even after falling in sin--is so by divine will, design and order (Genesis 3:16b).”
We now exist in and observe a cosmos as well as earth with all of its many systems of order after their ruin at the rebellion and fall of man (Genesis 3:17-19). As God did not change the divine order of marriage after man sinned and the pre-announced judgment was carried out, neither did God alter the ultimate divine purpose for mankind to rule over the cosmos. In accord with the foreordained divine plan, the Son of God came down to make atonement for our sins in His death on the cross, burial and resurrection so that God might righteously forgive and fully restore men that believe (Hebrews 2:8b-18). After redeemed men, God will also restore the cosmos (Romans 8:18-22).
Truly, the Lord Jesus and His apostles joyfully heralded God’s good news! The apostle Paul in particular sent to the Gentiles taught the will, instructions and commandments of God’s order faithfully (1 Timothy 2:11-15). But now, knowing the plain warning of the apostle Paul that applies to all men (Romans 1:18-2:16), many professing Christians are participating in the world’s rebellion against God’s order of marriage and that of His house with women leading and taking authority over men. Therefore, as only a foretaste and warning of the wrath to come, the whole world that banks on the dependable order of time installed by God at creation will experience among other of His judgments very near, its abrupt disruption as humanity has known it on earth (Revelation 8:12-13).
Again, as I wrote in that 2011 Commentary, “If the fixed order of day and night that God has established were to be disrupted, chaos on earth would ensue. So it is now with human rebellion against His fixed order of the family” and I add for this blog, His house. But no one seems to care about this except the faithful--every aspiring strong man and great woman of God! Since the world and many professing Christians in rebellion believe that casting aside the divine order is no big deal, God is about to show them as a consequence how wrong they are. Let the faithful saints be comforted in their foreknowledge and understanding of why the Lord’s judgment suddenly falls. The risen, living Christ continues His cry among American churches, “Who is on the Lord’s side?”
