God and man

Exodus 4:10-11, Psalms 139, Jeremiah 17:9, Matthew 12:30-33, Mark 7:1-23, John 4:24 Romans 12:2, Ephesians 2:1-3, 4:21 -24, Colossians 3:10

1) Man was created in the image of God
Genesis 1:26-28, 11:7, 2:4-7, 5:1-4
We are all created in His image, like a king who creates statues to show his reign over a certain religion. We are Gods likeness, created to show His reign over the world. He created us to be in fellowship with Him but that fellowship was broken through the sin of Adam. Jesus came in the flesh to save us from our sins and make us one with God again. Psalms 96, Romans 11:33-34

2) Man in the last days without God
Titus 1:10-16, 3:9-11
Psalms 58:1-5
Mark 7:1-32
Luke 16:19-31
Romans 1:18-32, 3:9-19, 14:23
1Timothy 1:3-10
2Timothy 3:1-13
James 4:17

3) Man with God in fellowship
Psalms 91, 119:9-16, 139, 147:5-6
Ecclesiastes 12:12-14
Isaiah 40:28-31
Ezekiel 33:7-20
Romans 3:23
1Timothy 2:1-6
2Timothy2:15-16, 21-26
Titus 2

A) A Godly prayer
Psalms 119:25-40

B) God hates
Proverbs 6:16-19

1) Fear God Hebrews 3:12-15
2) Stay with God Hebrews 5:12-1 4, 6:1-7
3) Love God through trials
James 1:8-13
The old natural man is corrupt from birth (the flesh)
Our conscience is bad through sin brought on by Adam and we are all born under sin.
The new man (spiritual) is created after God. Created in righteousness and true holiness
Romans 3 – 6
Ephesians 2:1-18


8.The seventh day

God rests



His divine resting indicates the end of His special creation acts.

All is good and in order

His work is complete.


The seventh day is God’s sabbath.

A day set aside as holy unto Himself. Later on God introduces this concept to Israel as an element of His covenant(Ex 20:8-11)

This day of rest is also setting an example for man. Man needs to have at least one day of rest, the precise day does not matter. We should have at least one day for rest not because we are commanded but because God introduced it for our own good. It would seem unbiblical to work seven days a week all of the time and we should understand it was made for man not the other way around.
