Genesis 2:7 states that man was created by God from the dust of the earth. God breathed into man the breath of life, and he became a living soul. God decided it was not good for Adam to be alone (Genesis 2:22). God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, then He took one of his ribs and from it created the first woman who was named Eve.
Adam called his mate woman, which means “she-man” or “joined to man,” because she was taken out of man. This is where the word “woman” originated.
CREATED IN THE IMAGE OF GOD:
Genesis 2:26-27 documents that God created both male and female in His image:
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness…So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them. (Genesis 1:26-27)
MAN’S FIRST RESPONSIBILITY
Adam and Eve were told by God to:
-Replenish the earth.
-Subdue the earth.
-Have dominion over every living thing on earth. (Genesis 1:28)
It is interesting to note that God’s first command to man and woman was to “be fruitful.” Spiritual fruitfulness is a Biblical concept traced from this initial command to the final harvest among the nations prophesied in the closing book of Revelation.
Adam and Eve were to be fruitful in each area of their triune nature, physically, spiritually, and mentally as they replenished the earth, subdued and took dominion over it.
Many believe that women’s only purpose here on the earth is to marry, work a job, bear and raise children and ‘go to church’ to be told how to cook well, take care of husband and children and allow men to dominate them and they have no voice.
But from the beginning, women have been created to help and assist, subduing the earth and to have dominion. It is past time that the world begins to understand that women have been created by God’s divine design and that they are women of right design.
Rise up Women! Be that Queen that you have been created to be here in the earth. I have great confidence in you and stand in partnership with you that you be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.
