Tying up the Loose Ends of Genesis 1 – 11, II

 

 

THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE WORD

  1. It is the will of God for the believer to live a victorious life in the earth.
  2. Faith comes by hearing the word of God.  (Scripture reference – Romans 10:17)
  3. Without an understanding of the Bible, your spirit man cannot grow.
  4. The Bible is God’s method by which He reveals what is possible for the believer.

 

INTRODUCTION

  1. Before God begins anything in the earth, He has already “finished it” in the heavenly realm.
    1. Isaiah 46:9-10
      1. The word of God is the telescope into the other realm.
      2. Romans 4:17
        1. Abraham is made a father of many nations in the heavenly realm.
        2. When you release your faith, God makes alive in the natural what is already living in the supernatural realm.  However, you cannot be thrown off or swayed by what you see.  Your heart must believe the word of God more than the sense realm evidence.
        3. The word of God is the substance until the believer has the tangible manifestation of the Word.
        4. In other words, the word of God is the title deed, the proof of your ownership.
        5. Conversely, ownership is not contingent on the presence or absence of the tangible substance, the title deed (the word of God) makes it yours.
      3. Romans 12:1-2
        1. There is another world for the believer other than the natural realm.
        2. When God sat down on the seventh day of creation, he finished ALL his work in this other realm.
        3. We accept and receive His finished work by our faith-filled confessions.
  2. God began with what He said.
    1. St. John 1:1-3
    2. Colossians 1:15-16
      1. God made the intangible before He made the tangible in Genesis 1.

 

  1.          I.            What was God doing before He created man and the earth?
    1. God was fellowshipping and planning [for every man] with His son, Jesus Christ.
      1. Proverbs 8:22-30
      2. St. John 17:5
      3. St. John 17:24

·            I Corinthians 10:13

  1. God planned for every trial and arranged a way of escape for every person that would populate the earth.
  2. God and Jesus have planned your life from conception to death.
  3. Your next manifestation of God is already in the Book because the script of your life is already written.  You are the star of the movie of your life.

·            St. Matthew 6:34

  1. God has already pre-thought our days, and underwritten in each day is an answer for every challenge that will show up in life.
  2. We have sufficient grace daily to handle every satanic trap of the enemy.

    1. Job 38:4-7
      1. God has already created and anchored the universe.
      2. He was identifying and providing for those He knew would choose Him (known as the doctrine of election).
        1. Ephesians 1:4
        2. II Timothy 1:9
          1. Before anyone is born, God and Jesus planned the entire life of every person that will be born.  That’s over 7 billion people!
          2. God and Jesus have calculated the very day you would give your life to Christ.  Your salvation is already in the book!
      3. He was planning and providing for the Church.
        1. Ephesians 3:8-9
      4. He was preparing for the Kingdom.
        1. St. Matthew 25:34
          1. God finished the Kingdom and sat down.
          2. Your justifications of rewards in the Kingdom have already been finished.   Your assignment in the Kingdom will be no surprise to God.
      5. He was planning for the Savior.
        1. I Peter 1:18-20
          1. God planned how He would come into the earth in the body of a man.  He planned the conception of Jesus, His lineage through David via 42 generations, His death and His resurrection.
          2. An arrangement is made for a Savior is before the first man is ever created [to sin]!!!!!
        2. Psalm 16:11
