What A Dedication Ceremony!
 

 

     We have talked before that there was a conversation that took place in Heaven a long, long time ago.  God so graciously let us in on this one conversation by making sure it was in The Bible by The Holy Ghost.  This conversation was between Father God, Jesus and of course, The Holy Spirit.  Let's look, seek and listen in, again.    

 

"Look" At THIS CONVERSATION - AGAIN!

 

“Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us. They will reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the livestock, all the wild animals on the earth, and the small animals that scurry along the ground.”  27 So God created human beings in his own image.  In the image of God HE CREATED THEM; MALE AND FEMALE HE CREATED THEM.  28 Then God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and multiply. Fill the earth and govern it. Reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, and all the animals that scurry along the ground.”  29  Then God said, "LOOK" I HAVE GIVEN YOU every seed-bearing plant throughout the earth and all the fruit trees for your food. 30  And I have given every green plant as food for all the wild animals, the birds in the sky, and the small animals that scurry along the ground—everything that has life.” And that is what happened.” Genesis 1:26-30 (NLT)

          How cool is this, Beloved!  Father, Jesus and The Holy Spirit are talking about . . . US!  They are discussing creating this new creature that will not be like anything else they had created yet.  Human Beings!  These creatures will be "like" them!  (That's us!  We are "like" them!)  And IN the discussion they are talking about making the Humans to rule AND BE IN CHARGE over all that they created in the Earth.  So, then verse 27 says, "So God created human beings in his own image.  In the image of God HE CREATED THEM; MALE AND FEMALE HE CREATED THEM."  So, in verse 27, the "Creation" of Human Beings happened.   And then in verse 28, "Then God blessed them and said, "Be fruitful and multiply.  Fill the earth and govern it.  Reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, and all the animals that scurry along the ground."  The word "Then" in verse 28 is a word that describes something happened and THEN something else happened.  So, what else happened?  After Human Beings were created, verse 28 says that, "Then God blessed them and said, . . ." 

     God blessed His new creation called Human Beings and then HE SPOKE TO THEM!  Now, why is that important?  Because that shows us that we were created in Heaven and not in the Earth!  God is speaking to Human Beings here!  Not just Adam and Eve!  He is talking to His new Creation!  We are "formed" in the Earth, NOT "CREATED" HERE!  We were "created" in Heaven, in that moment of verse 27!  Remember, in verse 28, He's "speaking" to us!  And He can, we are created and existing at this point!  He's speaking to us in verse 28!   

     Then the next thing that God tells the Human Beings is, “Look!”  “Look” means just what it says, “Look!”  Who, "Look" at what?  The Human Beings, both male and female, He just created!  "Look" at what I have created for you!  Human Beings, "Look" down there on Earth and SEE WITH YOUR EYES what I have created for you to “govern” and “reign” over!  Father and Jesus and The Holy Spirit had finished creating the things here on Earth (land, waters, trees, stars, animals) in the verses before verses 26-30.  God was telling, “them: male and female he created them” LOOK AT WHAT I MADE FOR YOU!  Look at the seed bearing plants “throughout the earth."  God was now having a conversation with the Human Beings that He created!  Look at those over there!  Those are "fruit trees" and you will eat them.  That will be what you will call "food."  Look over here, these are the green plants that are food for the creatures you are watching, those are wild animals.  Look at the birds of the sky, the small animals . . . Look at what I have given you!  And I want you to rule and reign and be in charge of all of this! 

 
 

      Can't you just see it with me?  Father is showing all of His Human Beings, He just created, all the things He created on Earth.  We are with Him in Heaven and He's telling us to "LOOK!"  "LOOK" at this over here and the trees over there, "LOOK" at the animals, the birds, the water . . . EVERTHING!  WE COULD ONLY "LOOK" IF WE WERE ALREADY CREATED TO "SEE" THESE THINGS!  Human Beings were created IN HEAVEN and told to look at Earth!  “Look” is a word that means you must have eyes to be able to do so!  The Human Beings had eyes and bodies and could look at Earth at what God was telling them to see on Earth.  Church, we were CREATED IN HEAVEN, we were FORMED ON EARTH WITH EARTH MATERIALS IN ORDER TO LIVE HERE!  We had to have “Earth suits” to live on Earth.  And we were "FORMED" here on Earth.  CREATED IN Heaven.   

  

THE "FORMING"

1 John 4:17 (KJV) ". . . because as he is, so are we in this world."

 

     Then what happened after we had this "Meeting" with The Lord where He TOLD us and SHOWED us everything about Earth and all that would be waiting for us down here?  TIME happened.  For we see in Genesis 2 that after everything was complete, He rested.  Then He saw that the "wild plants nor grains were growing on the earth."  And the reason that they were not growing is found in verse 5-6.  "For the Lord God had not yet sent rain to water the earth, and there were no people to cultivate the soil.  6  Instead, springs came up from the ground and watered all the land."  Human Beings had not yet been sent to Earth and things were not growing because of it and due to the watering.  "Then" (we went over what "then" means) we see what God is doing with one of the first Human Beings to be sent to Earth on ASSIGNMENT!  7 Then the Lord God FORMED the man from the dust of the ground.  He breathed the breath of life into the man’s nostrils, and the man became a living person.WE ARE "CREATED" IN HEAVEN, WE ARE "FORMED" IN THE EARTH!  

 

 "So the creation of the heavens and the earth and everything in them was completed.  2 On the seventh day God had finished his work of creation, so he rested from all his work.  3 And God blessed the seventh day and declared it holy, because it was the day when he rested from all his work of creation.  4 This is the account of the creation of the heavens and the earth.  When the Lord God made the earth and the heavens, 5 neither wild plants nor grains were growing on the earth. For the Lord God had not yet sent rain to water the earth, AND THERE WERE NO PEOPLE to cultivate the soil.  6  Instead, springs came up from the ground and watered all the land.  7 Then the Lord God FORMED the man from the dust of the ground. He breathed the breath of life into the man’s nostrils, and the man became a living person. 8  Then the Lord God planted a garden in Eden in the east, and there he placed the man he had made.” Genesis 2:1-8 (NLT)

 

 

 

     Just like when a baby is "planted" in a mother's womb, the baby or Human is "FORMED" in the womb.  But, that's not when we are "created!"  We are forming into our "earth-suit" that comes from our parents, who were made from the Earth, just like the first Human, Adam.  He was "formed" from dirt and so are we.  We had to be made from the means of Earth that we are sent on ASSIGNMENT to!  We are with God in Heaven and then sent to Earth!  We are sent here and given a Gift called Life!  We are given a Free Will, a Destiny, a Soul (mind, will, emotions) and A PLAN and PURPOSE.  Just like Jesus was!  1 John 4:17 (KJV) ". . . because as he is, so are we in the world." 

      Don't miss this so important Truth, Beloved!  We are like Jesus!  The NIV Translation says it like this in 1 John 4:17, "In this world we are like Jesus."  Jesus was with Father God at first and so were we.  He had to come from Heaven into a womb of a woman and through the canal of a woman with an “Earth suit” made of flesh too.  His flesh was made from dirt, just like ours was (from Mary.)  In order to live on Earth, you have to be made from, or FORMED FROM what it’s made from.  You and I were CREATED IN HEAVEN and we were FORMED HERE ON EARTH!  Because we are Born Again, we also now have IN US The Place we originally started from . . . The Place is The Kingdom of God!  ". . . behold, the kingdom of God is within you." (Luke 17:21 (KJV))  The Holy Spirit of Jesus comes to live IN US when we are Born Again.  The Holy Spirit was right there in the very first conversation that happened about us in Heaven with Father and Jesus.  He is from The Kingdom of God too!  He comes and lives IN YOU!  The Kingdom of God, WHERE YOU ARE FROM, comes inside of you and I!
