God’s Purpose for Man is Management
God’s Purpose For Man Is Management
So, what was God’s purpose to create man?
Genesis 1:26-27 AMPC
26 God said, Let Us [Father, Son, and Holy Spirit] make mankind in Our image, after Our likeness, and let them have complete authority over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the [tame] beasts, and over all of the earth, and over everything that creeps upon the earth.
27 So God created man in His own image, in the image and likeness of God He created him; male and female He created them.
Isaiah 45:18 NIV
For this is what the Lord says-
he who created the heavens, he is God;
he who fashioned and made the earth, he founded it;
he did not create it to be empty, but formed it to be inhabited-
he says: “I am the Lord, and there is no other.
The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it. The world and all its people belong to him.
The heavens belong to our God; they are his alone, but
he has given us the earth and put us in charge.
Genesis 2:5-7,15 NIV
5 Now no shrub had yet appeared on the earth and no plant had yet sprung up, for the Lord God had not sent rain on the earth and there was no one to work the ground,
6 but streams came up from the earth and watered the whole surface of the ground.
7 Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.
15 The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.
God’s purpose of creating man in HIS image and likeness is to establish the invisible Kingdom of Heaven in the visible KINGDOM of God on earth through man.
God’s purpose for man is to manage HIS Kingdom of God on earth as it is in the Kingdom of Heaven.
God’s purpose for man is the Work-Management of the Kingdom of God on earth.
