It can not be done now in the beginning, but it can be done now in the beginning of the finish. Let us now finish making man. We know that God started the making of man, and we know that God did not finish the making of man. We also know from the scripture that God left it to man to finish the making of man. And now that I’ve had a chance to really look at this making of man process, I can see the two part making of man as it was done by God and by man. There are two parts of the physical man in the garden, the tangible and the intangible. And be sure to remember that man was not a spiritual being yet, but a pure soul without sin until man failed the test. Now the God team, the let us make man team, was responsible for the tangibles: the exterior limbs and features, as well as the interior organs and parts. Yeah, anything that was basically a fixture and physical part of the body of man, well God made all of that. Then God ran an early test on the man, and found out that it was not good for the man to be made in his image. It was through this very first test that man faced in the garden in which God was able to determine theses two things about making man in his image: one, man would not be perfection, although he was made by perfection; and two, the male and the female man would not be as all one, although the man was made by the “let us make man team,” which is the Godhead team that is all one. So right from the beginning, without the perfection of God, and the oneness of God, the man is already deep in trouble when it comes to the image of God. This is one reason why we should be so thankful for Jesus, for he knows our pains and sufferings first hand. The Father, the Spirit, put the earth house on the line knowing that his image would just be perfect when the time came to face the serpent in the garden. Nope, God found out that image and likeness alone in a natural creation, would not get it done without it also becoming the will of man. So the fall of the man in the garden was just the beginning of the finish for the man to build up the intangibles of man to walk in the imagine and likeness of God.

Well, it all started out as all things start out with God, God just said to let it be. Genesis 1:26-28, “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. 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. 28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” You can see the Father, the Will, just going over the kingdom plan with the Word, not made Jesus yet, and the Holy Ghost, the power; and this would be concerning all that he wants to do with the creation of man. The Will was just being laid out for the creation of man as it had been done for the first five days of creation with no problems; and it was all just good. In verse 27 above we see God create the man in his own image, as God had the man made as one, just as are the Will, the Word, and the Power are one. Then God tells the man above in verse 28 basically the same Will in which he had already laid out to the rest of the “let us make man team” in verse 26. And I can only imagine what is now going through the mind of God as he after having made man in his image, sit there awaiting to see his likeness come through.

Now, not only did his likeness not come through, as the man disobeyed God, which is something that Jesus showed us later is not to be done; but God was able to determine also that it was not good for the man, male and female, to be alone or all one. Genesis 2:18, “And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.” Why was it not good for the man to be alone or all one? Well, we know that in the image of God that the Word, the Holy Ghost, and the Father all have the power of life unto each of themselves. And if the male and female man also being in the image of God each had a will unto themselves, then if they are not being as one as we with hindsight know to be possible, then it would not be good for them to be bottled up together as one in the one body. And since the day that the man ate from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil was his last day in the garden, we have to deduce that the other thirty some odd days in the garden that the enemy was busy on the scene before the decision to separate the man was made in Genesis 2:18. So what discussions was the serpent having with the male and female man as they were still in one body? My oh my! So as God watched it begin to unfold, and he did not see his likeness coming forth after this image, he did the rib operation, and the man was no longer alone, or all one. The man, both male and female, now have his own will separated in which he can submit to God without having to battle with another’s will from within. We still do have many others’ will to battle from without, but their wills are not our burden to carry. So now let’s create the relationship that we want to have with the Father as we finish building our own intangibles; therefore, we can then have the image and likeness of God as he wants us to have through the submission of our will.
