We know that all the activities of earth in relation to God, is to a God who created the earth. Jesus taught us to pray saying, “Our Father, who art in heaven…”
God brought forth creation and entered into creation; He caused the earth to interact with the heavens. Everything in the universe is known by God. God knows the value of everything in creation.
Matthew 6:28-29 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
Everything in creation is useful to God. Before now, we have situated ourselves in a frame of mind that thinks God only cares for some things within a set time and some set days. But everything is under the care of our God. God cares for everything He has created.
God ordained that His Son Jesus who is the heir of all things, would reign over the entire created realm. Not just Jesus alone, but Jesus and His bride – He and the rest of His brethren who are sons like Him.
The kingdom of God is, God and His sons “incorporated”. They are ONE.
We know there is an innumerable company of angels created by God; that these angels have different tasks. They populated heaven before man was created.
The angels have their classes and their function in the heavenly realm. As there are spheres and layers of the earth, there are also spheres and dimensions of the heaven, even as there are also different layers of reality.
When God created the earth, the Bible says, the heaven, even the heaven of heavens belongs to God, but the earth has He given to the sons of men.
Psalms 115:16 The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD’S: but the earth hath he given to the children of men.
This scripture should change your perspective about the earth. The original intent behind the placement of man is clearly stated in the Bible.
Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
God made man and told him to exercise dominion. Man was called to be a co-ruler with God in the governance of the universe. God put capacity in man; the tools and design to govern.
Fashioned into man is a desire to govern, to control; a desire to put things in place and to ensure it conforms to an order.
God has a throne in heaven, and He reigns over heaven. God gave men the capacity to master and subdue the universe (that which is not heaven).
It is in the DNA of man to rule, to govern, to exercise dominion.
Psalms 8:6 Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:
The servitude that Israel was subject to in Egypt is not the true order for man’s labour. Your job should have a kingly or kingdom relevance. It shouldn’t enslave you.
