The pattern of intimacy between the man and the woman was established at the creation of man.
Friday, February 6, 2004
It became clear to Adam that he could not be on the basis of intimacy with the animal creation.
So God gave him a helper, an ezer = a responder and fulfiller.
Don’t panic, God’s timing is perfect.
The first mention principle – when you establish a precedent, it is to show that this is a firm established principle from the beginning of time to the end of human history.
The pattern of intimacy between the man and the woman was established at the creation of man, GEN 2:21-25.
EPH 5:31-33 – just as there is one edification complex for one soul (one developed system of thinking), there is one man for one woman in God’s design.
Respect – pres-mid-subj – phobeo = to respect, to be in awe of, to revere, to treat with esteem, courtesy, high regard or reverential obedience.
When the right man initiates love to the right woman, she responds with respect.
Your feelings towards him are always strong, one way or another.
The thing that will be developed in the woman’s relationship with the right man is respect.
The thing that will be developed in the man’s relationship with the woman is love, aggressive, initiating love.
Ladies, beware about being sentimental about a man whom you do not respect.
The first great decision that you make is to believe on TLJC as your Lord and Savior.
The second greatest decision you can make is your right pastor-teacher who can teach you Bible doctrine and the mind of Christ. The third greatest decision is finding the right man or right woman God has designed for your life.
