I want to examine a phenomenon I see in the bible in a couple of places. There are probably more, but in the past few days I have been zeroing in on these two. The Holy Spirit has been speaking to me through them.
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 creeps upon the earth.”
Recently, I went through a few days of pain in my body. I am not accustomed to pain in my body, having enjoyed the wonders of a very healthy and pain free life. Let me state unequivocally, and I’m sure all will agree: Good health is a BLESSING!
It was recently brought to my attention that the second Adam (Jesus) did what the first Adam was supposed to do in the beginning after his creation.
