MEDITATIONS ON THE TRUE CHRISTIAN LIFE
By Glenn H. Jackson
______...."This book of the law [the Word of God] shall not depart from [always be in] your mouth, but you shall
meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful [take heed] to do according to all that is written in it; for THEN you will make your way prosperous, and THEN you will have success".... Joshua
THE CREATION OF MAN
[part 4 of 6]
declare that when man was created, he had a mind, intellectually of such character that he was able to name the entire animal creation. Genesis 2:19-20, "And out of the ground Jehovah God formed every beast of the field, and every bird of the heavens : and
brought them to man to see what he would call them : and whatsoever man called the living creature, that was the name thereof. And the man gave names to all cattle, and to the birds of heaven, and to every beast of the field."
we realize that there are 500,000 bugs, birds, worms, animals, fish and reptiles that Adam named, we can understand that he possessed intellectual capacities that enabled him to rule creation. We know that the reason for man's existence is the Father-God's
craving for fellowship. Therefore, man's mental capacities were such that his mind could fellowship with the mind of his Creator.
...."For who has known or understood the
mind [the counsels and purposes] of the Lord so as to guide and instruct Him and give Him knowledge? But we have the mind of Christ [the Messiah] and do hold the thoughts [feelings and purposes] of His heart"..... 1 Corinthians 2:16 The Amplified Translation
