entered him, they did their creative work and, as the Bible says,
“Man became a living soul.”
The Hebrew commentaries put it his way:
“He became a living, speaking spirit like God."
As a living, speaking spirit like God, man had the same power to speak that God Himself had. He
was full of God’s own faith and had the authority to speak creative, compassionate words and
exercise dominion with them. Born of God’s WORD and created in His exact likeness,
> man was Love just like God is Love.
> Man was Light just like God is Light.
> Man was full of Compassion just like God is full of Compassion.
> Man was Life just as God is Life.
The only difference between man and God was this:
Unlike God who is eternally sovereign and independent, man was dependent on God.
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
Those words of BLESSING marked the coronation of mankind.
They were the first words Adam ever heard.
They were the most important words God has ever spoken to any man at any time because
they carry within them God’s unchanging plan and purpose for His family.
They settle, once and for all, the eternal truth that God’s will for man is THE BLESSING.
