Co-Dominion

Do you know that in the beginning, when God created the earth and man. When he said to man “it’s not good that man should be alone” I will make him a helpmate for him”. When He created the woman out of the rib of man. He also said, therefore shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife; and they shall be one flesh.

Before He actually created man; He said to the Son and Holy Spirit; let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let THEM have dominion over the firsh of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth and over every creaping thing that creaps upon the earth.

Before God ever brought Eve into existence , He gave THEM dominion over the works of His hands. What God intended not only in the beginning, but also now. Is for man and woman to be in such harmony and unity (one flesh) that they actually have the same power and authority. But, when Eve listened to the serpent and took of the apple from THE TREE OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL. That changed everything. It put us under the authority of our husband! No longer did we share that same power and authority.

But, in saying all of that I want to explain to you what God did! Because Eve was actually deceived, Adam was not deceived.  God told Adam before He brought Eve into the equation. Gen.2:16-17 And the Lord God, commanded the man, saying, of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat; but  of the tree of Knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it; for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die. (the death God was referring to was spiritual death). Not being able to commune with God.

So Adam was not deceived, he had been told by the Lord not to eat of the tree and told what the consequences would be if he did. So because he already knew and chose to do it anyway. God has held him accountable to Himself. As we women walk in submission to our men God can cause good to come out of some of the worst situations. As long as we submit (not that we submit to something that is ungodly) but every day things.  God can and will cause good to come to His precious daughters.  As long as we walk in submission the best we know how (that doesn’t mean being a door mat). God will hold His man accountable on how he obeys God and how he treats you his daughter.

But, those of us that have been born again by the blood of Jesus claim freedom of that deception. We have the Holy Spirit and are no longer deceived, the veil on our eyes has been removed.   But, we don’t take that freedom too far in thinking we are never decieved. We must all submit one to another as the word says in Ephesians 5. (IICorth. 3:16-19 – Nevertheless when one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of  the Lord is there is liberty. But we all with unveiled face, beholding as in the mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord) But we must keep our eyes on the Lord or we can be deceived.

God’s perfect way is for marriages to truly represent Jesus and His church (bride). Walking in love and unity with each other and Him our Lord. In that place we again have been given back the co-dominion. We are able to walk in the power and authority God first gave to His c reation (man and woman).
