  Study Tools

Tonight begin discussing covenants of God

Start with covenant of Creation

We will work our way to the new covenant- the greatest covenant

Covenant of Creation

Covenant with Adam

Covenant with Noah

Covenant with Abraham

Covenant of Sinai

Covenant with David

The New Covenant

Most people think the gospel starts is Matthew

The gospel starts in Genesis- the good news is Jesus returning us to the beauty of the Garden

The most hard headed guy you’ll ever meet is God

People talk about strong willed kids, people

God has always had a plan, and he has never changed his mind

When he made the world and man, he had a plan for both

The gospel starts in Genesis, this was the beginning of God’s plan

God did not create us to be defeated, and live in the shape that were in

And he didn’t create the world to be in the shape that it’s in

Let me prove that creation was a covenant

Jeremiah 33:20-21 called day and night a covenant

What is a covenant? It’s an unbreakable agreement, a treaty

Vs. 25

God has made a covenant with the moon, stars, sun, trees,

God spoke to them and they responded

Just like the covenant with us- He speaks, we respond

Gen 1:26-28

1. Man is the image of God

2. Man would have dominion- not just the “CHURCH” ----man

3. 2:1-3- Sabbath Rest- man need rest- Weren’t made to work all the time

religion teaches, man was made for the Sabbath –

other way around- The Sabbath was made for us

4. Marriage- another part of the covenant- God created marriage, not man

Man doesn’t get to change the rules of marriage- God created it

Has nothing to do w/ attacking or speaking against anyone, it’s covenant

“Man and woman” have the right to be married”

I’ve been ridiculed for marrying unbelievers-

The same people would judge them if they’re not

1. Man was made in the image of God

Psalm 8 Expound

Man can never experience victory- find out what he was made for

JUNGLE BOOK- boy raised by lions, thought he belonged in forest

Once he saw that girl- he saw a purpose he didn’t know he had

Church once we figure out- where we belong- we’ll thrive

Who am I- The direct image of God

God didn’t have a body when he said this

So it’s not our bodies that look like God

God told Moses at the bush- Tell them “I AM”

Not the I was, or I’m gonna be

He’s the great I am, You are a little I am-

Animals don’t know they’re here-

They don’t question their existence

MIRROR, SOMETHING ON TAIL

Men and Women Judge- Why?

God judges----- animals don’t

We Create-Why? God creates----- animals don’t

We Paint – Why?-God paints------animals don’t

Build hosp. - God cares for hurting people---

animals don’t

Man has the image of God- That’s why we must love all people

Not all are going to Heaven, but they were made in His image

2. God said, take dominion- I’ve said it before, it’s not up to God the change the world

God gave us the dominion over the Earth-

Are we using God’s power

Too many Christians going, “God when are you going to do something?”

GENESIS 2:18-22

God brought the animals to Adam- So we would know adam greater that the animals-

GOD EVEN SUBMITTED TO ADAMS DECISION
