The order of our God’s Creation – Law of First Things – The Constitution.

A. God established through creation that a man and a woman should be married.  He first created Adam then Eve, who became Adam’s wife.   As the Lord God envisioned the creation of  man, He said, “let us make MAN  (H120/‘adam) in our image, after our likeness  and let THEM have dominion” (Genesis 1: 26).

God used the word “man” in a plural form to refer to more than one person, who He initially called THEM.

 

B. God then created MAN, more than one person – He created them MALE and FEMALE

So God created man (H120/‘adam) in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male 
and female created he them (Genesis 1: 27).

And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought
her unto the man (Genesis 2: 22)

This [is] the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man,
in the likeness of God made he him;

Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam,
in the day when they were created (Genesis 5: 1 & 2).

 

C. Adam, who was created first,  was referred to as THE MAN  (Genesis 2: 8, 15, 16, 18, 22, 25 etc.)

 

D. God’s order of creation was that a FEMALE would become the WIFE of  a man

God’s order of a male – female marriage and not same sex in any form was  clearly set out at creation:

And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man

And Adam said, This [is] now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh

And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed (Genesis 2: 23 – 25)

 

E.  Adam’s marriage partner was also referred to as the Woman

God’s established order is that a man would marry a woman and that a woman would marry a man.   Adam himself  verbalized this when he said that Eve was “..now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man”.

 

F. The order of creation was that a man and woman would bear children

God designed the man and woman each with unique body parts specifically for the purpose of  multiplying the species. Eve and not a man therefore was designed to be the MOTHER:

And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living (Genesis 3: 20).

And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have
gotten a man from the LORD (Genesis 4: 1).

 

G. Jesus ENDORSED that marriage is between a male and female

Jesus  reinforced the order of creation when He was asked whether or not it was legal for a man to divorce his wife. His response matches Adam’s exclamation when Eve was given to him.  Jesus’ response indicates that the God family had taught Adam what Eve was designed for:

And the Pharisees came to him, and asked him, Is it lawful for a man to put away
[his] wife? tempting him.

And he answered and said unto them, What did Moses command you?

And they said, Moses suffered to write a bill of divorcement, and to put [her]
away.

And Jesus answered and said unto them, For the hardness of your heart he wrote
you this precept.

But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.

For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife;

And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one
flesh.

What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder (Mark 10: 2 – 9).

The Words of our Lord overrides those of  film makers, writers, Gay rights activists, legislators and Presidents  and others who endorse and legalize same sex marriages and relationships.

More to come on  God’s laws against homosexuality and lesbianism.
