ANOINTED

To be a FATHER / MAN pt 3

This anointing that a Father/ Man was created with, is for a very specific role and great value and importance was bestowed upon him; for this role. He was fashioned and created with specific traits, gifts, talents and abilities that he was to walk in, carry out and fulfill. God made MAN first and gave him instructions and then took from MAN and made woman.

Gen 2:15  And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.
Gen 2:16  And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:
Gen 2:17  But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
Gen 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.              Gen 2:19  And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.

 Adam…MAN was busy walking out his instructions that The Lord God had given him and then, woman was made from him, to help him. All the responsibilities were placed squarely on MAN’S shoulders, and the woman was there to be his helper. I know that God made MAN and woman on the same day and they were both given instructions, but MAN was made first and after he was made…He got busy with his instructions, commands and directives that was placed on his shoulders…it was while he was carrying these instructions out that God made the woman for the man; to be his help-meet and his wife.

Gen 2:20  And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.
Gen 2:21  And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
Gen 2:22  And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
Gen 2:23  And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

1Co 11:9  Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.

Men and fathers. You have been given great responsibility, power and authority to be great MEN. This rightful order and place of value has been bestowed upon you by Our Heavenly Father. The utmost honor, respect, and value is due you. Thanks to all fathers and MEN, who take up this thinking and walk in your God given role. This is totally amazing and when we realize just how big this is; you just have to stop, pause and say “Selah”.
