You to show you exactly what i’m talking about so the first scripture we’re gonna go to is isaiah chapter 46 isaiah chapter 46 and right here in this scripture the bible tells us that god sees the end from the beginning so look at that real quick isaiah chapter 46 verse 10 it says actually if we’re gonna start at verse 9 it says remembering the former things of old

For i am god there is none other i am god there is none like me declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times the things which are not yet done so we see right there god has an intention and everything that he does let’s turn real quick to a popular scripture in jeremiah chapter 29 now this is like i said a very popular passage of scripture in isaiah

Chapter 29 verse 11 it reads like this for i know the thoughts that i think toward you says the lord thoughts of peace and not of evil to bring you a future and a hope now you see right here god has an intention with creation that in with creation of mankind to bring us a keep you a future of pleasantry a future of hope future of goodness and not just exist with

No purpose let’s look at another scripture oh my old friend isaiah chapter 55 let’s take a look at it shel and we all look at verses 10 and 11 let’s look at what it says let’s take a look it says for as rain comes down and snow from heaven and does not return there but water the earth and make it bring forth but that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the

Eater even so much my word even shall my word be that goes forth from my mouth it’s shell would not return to me void but it shall accomplish that would i please and do and it shall prosper in the thing that i sent it so we see right here when god speaks a thing he speaks that thing to be accomplished and not just because now the reason that is important when it

Comes to the purpose of mankind you see god give us our purpose doing creation turn over to genesis chapter 1 real quick now this is a scripture you know it’s one of my favorites genesis chapter 1 verse 26 and it reads like this it says then god said let us make man in our image and according to our likeness and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea the

Birds of the air and over all the cattle of the earth and over every creeping things that over every creeping thing that creeps on the ground so god made man in his own image and the image of god he created him male and female he created them then god blessed them and said to them be fruitful and multiply replenish the earth and fill the earth and subdue it have

Dominion over the fish of the sea the birds of the air and over everything that moves upon the earth now it’s a similar passage of scripture that we find in the eighth song turn over there real quick turn over with it i know we do when some bible study today but you need to do your bible study i hope you do it daily now turn over to gen to turn just turn just turn

Turning pages now this is a psalm of david in psalm 2 a song where david acts a question but then around and answers that question now look at what it says it says in verse verse 6 i believe no verse for psalm the a psalm verse 4 it says what is man that you are mindful of him and the son of man that you visit him for you have made him a little lower than the

Angels you have crowned him with glory and honour you have made him to have dominion over the works of your hands and you have put all things under his feet now get that god created us a little lower than the greek i’m sorry the hebrew word that’s used in that passage of scripture is the word elohim now that word elohim everywhere else in the bible is translated

God if you really look at that what that scripture says it says you’ve made man to like little of yourself a little of yourself god so we were created as you see in that passage of scripture and in genesis chapter 1 verse 26 so operate and function as god’s functions to to accomplish his will and to act as his proxy on the earth i’m not saying that we’re god big

G but i’m saying that we were made and molded in the image in the likeness of our creator to accomplish his purpose on the earth now what is that purpose to subject the world to the kingdom of heavens influence so that the world would look like heaven now how am i getting this if you look at the word image and likeness in the in the hebrew text that term those

Terms actually mean living symbols reflecting the reign of god it means essence it means glory it means nature we were made to reflect god’s essence god’s glory and god’s nature god created us to be his ambassadors on earth his regions his proxies creating created and functioning in the way that god functions again in his image and in his likeness having dominion

Over the world now even with the fall of man we still see that as this is the case today that is the reason why the earth is the way it is because now the earth is under the will of fallen man but as we come back to christ our purpose in christ to restore as many back to the lord as possible as we are now ambassadors to the loved the lord for for his for his son’s

Sake for his glory sake bringing people back to god reconciling people back to god in the way that we were intended to be in the first place and it’s through this reconciliation through jesus christ’s salvation that were not that we’re able to then gain the perspective of god to operate and function in the way that god wanted us to operate and function in the first

Place and this can only happen with a renewed mind in christ jesus so that comes through studying the word and allowing the holy spirit to minister to you as you study the word to grow and and be who god called you to be in all of his fullness so yeah that’s all i got today this is a short one this is straight to the point but at the same time we got some scriptures
