God created man in His image, male and female HE created them (Gen 2:27). All the attributes of male and female were present in the first man and also in the Son of God (Col 1:15). Jesus said if you have seen me you have seen the father. (John 14:9) The Son was sent to save the world and to give man a more abundant life (John 10:10).
The first woman was separated and created from the flesh and bone of the first man. One flesh became two individuals. In the sexual relationship of marriage they again become one flesh. God placed the male and female in the garden. His plan was that together they would rule over all other created beings. He viewed them as one flesh. God’s plan for the man and woman from the beginning was for them to be fruitful and multiply so that the whole earth would be filled with His glory through the image of the family.
In His human form on earth we know that Christ was male. When the Son departed the earth and was seated at the right hand of God, as promised (John 16:7) He sent the Holy Spirit as man's helper. Every true believer has the indwelling of God's Holy Spirit (Ep 1:3). Whether male or female they are considered the bride of Christ, the Church, or the body of Christ. God is a spiritual being, in Christ there is no longer male and female (Gal 3:28). Our human form will one day pass away and only our spiritual being will live eternally in perfect union with God. (John 3:15-16).
God’s Holy Spirit is the Life giver of the body of Christ. God's Holy Spirit, as our teacher, gives light to the word. God's Holy Spirit is our promised helper! God’s Holy Spirit that gives us life and wisdom is presented in scripture as a female in Proverbs Chapter 8.
From the beginning she was there with God when He created mankind. The Holy Spirit works in perfect unity with the Father and the Son. God's Holy Spirit does not contradict His word. God’s Holy Spirit delights in His creation as the mother of a newborn baby delights in what she and her husband have created together. God is LOVE! There is no greater picture of love than when a mother looks upon the face of her newborn baby for the first time, or when a new father sees his wife and newborn child for the first time after birth.
The perfect image of God in all His splendor is the family (father, mother, and child). The image of the Triune God is complete in the image of the family.
Do we wonder why the family is under such attack today or why babies are being sacrificed by the thousands every day at the altar of abortion? Satan has waged war against the woman and her off spring since the garden. That war continues to this today. Knowing what I do about the suffering a woman goes through after an abortion, I can only imagine how the Holy Spirit of God must grieve at this shedding of innocent blood in our nation.
It is time for a nation that claims to be a nation under God to draw a line in the sand and stand against those that are waging this war against the most defenseless among us. It is time for abortion to end in America!
