The making of man by the creator

Besides first speaking the manifestation of light (Gen.1:3, not the sun or stars) God spoke 7 times for things to be made. Gen. 1:6 Then God said, "Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters."

But not everything made was spoken into existence. God spoke His created things into existence but not man, being the last of his creatures he made, he personally fashioned him from the ground and breathed life into him. All the other creatures he made by two’s, (male and female) in abundance but He made only one human creature, man- Adam. Everything was prepared for man on earth before he arrived into existence. When God decided to make man He used no previous creation for an example, no animal or angel was used for a prototype. Man was not given the powers of the angels nor the freedom to move through the atmosphere as they can. He was created a little lower than the angels. As a creature he was limited to earth and the natural laws such as the law of gravity. He was limited in his intelligence and power, though he had far greater capabilities than the other creatures. When Adam was created he was perfect creature of his species, having no flaws.

He was created mature in mind and body and he was made with age (even though he was 1 day old), as was all of creation. How did Adam become a human being? Gen.2:7 The Hebrew is nephesh chayah meaning, living being. Nephesh does not mean a soul, as in a separate entity. The man that was formed from the ground became a breathing creature, having life within himself. Because God breathed into him, he became alive. He had a unique personality all his own. Man then was made of two distinct parts physical and non- material, substantially made a tri-part being spirit, soul and body. The image and likeness of God was directly given to man by the breathe of God that gave him life. Gen. 2:7 ‘And breathed into his nostrils the breath of life’- literally in Hebrew: lives. Adam was endowed with the property of continuing life and nature to his offspring. Thus God said to both He and Eve Gen. 1:28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth." The same pronouncement made to the other creatures the day before (Gen 1:22).

After the fall Adam begot his first son Cain and other sons and daughters in his own image and likeness. All those who preceded from Adam and afterwards received a deformed, marred image of God along with a preserved image of Adam in our nature. In a like manner Jesus had resurrected from death is the first resurrected glorified man and is able to be the giver of new life to man to restore the image of God in man. Being the last Adam, He succeeded where the first one failed.

1 Cor.15:45-49 ‘And so it is written, ‘The first man Adam became a living being.’ The last Adam became a life-giving spirit. However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural, and afterward the spiritual. The first man was of the earth, made of dust; the second Man is the Lord from heaven. As was the man of dust, so also are those who are made of dust; and as is the heavenly Man, so also are those who are heavenly. And as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly Man.’ This is why man must now be born again to live forever, to be in God’s kingdom. The Holy Spirit was given again so that the true image that man was made in would be restored to its original spiritual intent.
