【Bible Study】Genesis 01 Part 1: May the will of God be done!

Bible Study: Genesis

God’s will is to let people live out the image of God

Dear brothers and sisters! Today, we will talk about Genesis Chapter 1: Part 1. Everyone needs to accept a new concept, Genesis is very important. It is the beginning of the world and humans, and the Book of Revelation is the end. Our Jesus Christ is both the start and the end.
Today, we need to build on a very important concept—Genesis is the foundation of the Bible. The God in the Old Testament is the same in the New Testament. Unlike the usurpers in the Roman and Persian Empires, God has never changed from start to finish, so reading Genesis pulls us right back into God's will. No matter what kind of life you live, whether you live right or wrong, can we understand God's mind? What does God want for you? That's the most important thing!

I will do a few weeks of sharing on the first chapter of the Book of Genesis because it is very important. Genesis is the foundation of the entire Bible; The first 11 chapters of Genesis are the foundation of the entire book of Genesis; The first three chapters of Genesis are the foundation of the first 11 chapters; The first chapter of Genesis is the foundation for the first three chapters. So the first chapter of Genesis is so important that you need to read it constantly because it contains God's great plan. After you read this chapter, do you know what God’s will is for you? God has a great plan for you. I know you can't, and God knows you can't, so don't be discouraged. Didn't God put Jesus on the cross for our great salvation? This salvation is the power of God. What is God’s will?

Then God said, "Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground." (Genesis 1:26 NIV)

You are managing the donkey, ox, and horse, not the donkey managing you. Don't make it upside down.

So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. God blessed them and said to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground." (Genesis 1:27-28 NIV)

So this is God's will for us. How good God's will is for us! We should not live like a grandma but live like a god. God's will is too important! The idea is that we should live like God. However, people often live like ghosts because they talk and act like ghosts; God can do anything, but they can't do anything; Everything God sees is good, and everything they see is negative. When God opens his mouth, things will get done, but when you open your mouth, things will get corrupted. So, the topic of today’s sharing is 《May God's Will be Done》. That is why we often pray that,

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. (Matthew 6:9-13 NIV)

We often pray like this, but we don’t think about and know what we are praying for. In the past, I only knew that God created the world, but it was not like this. We need to know that God has a wonderful will for us. If you can't live like God today, don't give up. Hold on to God's hand tightly, and no matter what, I will bring you into the kingdom of God. I know you can't do it by yourself because it's not you who can do it, it's God who can make you do it, so I wish God's good will be fulfilled in you. God's will is to create a good image for people, and he made a very honourable image for man. Don’t let this image go away. If you are self-righteous, you can’t do anything. We need to know that we can't do anything without God, but we can do it by being connected to God.

Don't lose your temper so easily or fight with your shepherd. We need to learn to live in God’s will and put ourselves down because restoring the image of God needs to put ourselves down. When people leave God and are self-righteous, they can’t do anything because believing in God is God’s will.

God's will is about man's days on earth

In today's Christian faith, there are many false teachings on "what is the will of God". After I read the book of Genesis carefully, I found that God's will is on the earth. When God created man, he created him on earth, not in heaven.

Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground. (Genesis 1: 26 - 28 NIV)

God's will is for man to manage the things on earth, and God is in charge of the things in heaven because after God created Adam and Eve, He told them to manage the garden, so the Doctrine of Destiny is going to correct many Christians' wrong teachings and logic.

Many Christians want to manage the things in heaven, but they can't even manage the things on earth well. That's why we say that God is the God of the living! But many Christians treat God as the God of the dead. We need to believe in God when we are alive because God is the God of the living. As for where people will go after they die, it depends on what you looked like when you were alive. There is evidence in the Bible. In Genesis 5, it mentioned a man in the image of God's glory, Enoch, and later, God raised the man who had his image into heaven. So, your ending will be determined by how you live on Earth.

Enoch walked faithfully with God; then he was no more, because God took him away. (Genesis 5: 24 NIV)

We need to know that God’s will is on earth, not where to go when you die. Some people shout "Hallelujah" all day long, but they don’t live well, so we need to live in the will of God, and God’s will is for us to govern on earth and for us to flourish.

Today we need to know that our God is the God who is on the earth, and his will is on earth too. He is the God of the living, not after we are dead. As long as you are alive, God is your God.

God is the God who manages. his will is that we should rule over the birds in the air, the animals on the land, and the fish in the sea, and then, we should be fruitful and multiply and rule over the land. In the future, The Doctrine of Destiny will delve deeper into management, with courses on business management, time management, and project management.

Some people say that God can do everything. Why did God take six days to create the world? Why doesn’t he just create the world instantly? However, we need to know that everything needs to go step by step. Just like building a great business, which is built step by step, and managing a project is also done step by step. Later, I found out that many Christians want to solve the problem instantly.

One time, I was praying for a person from 1:00 to 3:00 in the middle of the night because her leg was in pain. Then I met her husband the next day, and he said to me, "Ps. L, you prayed for two hours, and it's not good to pray like that. You should pursue to solve the problem instantly." However, I found out that it is very corrupt for Christians who want to solve the problem instantly because it doesn’t require faith. When something is not finished, we need faith to do it, and our God treats those who have faith as precious. People who pursue solving problems instantly are not the people who manage.

God's will is for us to govern

Then I figured out that God had given us a demonstration of managing with a plan. Management must manage the order of doing things. For example, if a person has finished pooping, he needs to wipe his buttocks first before putting on his pants. You can't put on pants first and then wipe your butt after pooping.

We all understand this simple truth and will not do such a stupid thing. But we do many stupid things in our lives, so we have to do things in order. I find that people like to rush, and when they rush, it will easily create confusion. Before God made heaven and earth, his plan was more than these six days. Even Jesus Christ came into the world as a man and died on the cross for us, and even you and I were chosen in God's plan.

God already had a perfect plan. Adam and Eve were corrupted because that's what he planned, not because God didn't do a good job. Otherwise, God wouldn't have made the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. We need to know what is God's plan, so that "we can live out the image of God and become precious in His sight.** We should take step by step each day by faith. God will fulfil his will in you so that you can be on earth as you are in heaven. He will make you live prosperously, manage well on earth, and live according to God's way. Have you ever seen God in a flurry? No! People just don't want to go forward step by step. They want to jump to the end in one step.

People who know me will know that I am a good manager. Good managers do things step-by-step. I have a clear idea of everything, like what to do and how to do it. We need to plan to do things and manage. God is a God who plans, and you are a man who plans. That is the character of God. We have to implement it step by step, stage by stage, and that is the image of God. What God does, you do it too. Don't be in a rush, move forward one stage at a time. Even Jesus Christ has come to earth for 33 and a half years, and he didn't come out to do sermons when he was just a week old. Instead, in three and a half years, he brought out the image of God and managed very well. God's will is to manage on earth. Do what you can do. There is no need to be in a flurry.

Man needs to rely on God's Spirit

You will find that the Spirit of God works not by a car or by a horse, but by the Spirit of God. It is good to rely on the Spirit of God. **If you want to rely on God's Spirit, you must not pursue doing something instantly. We need to connect with God and rely on God's power, and then, let God's power fill us. Whether on earth or in management, we have to rely on the Spirit of God. We have to be poured out by the Spirit of God. A person without faith and without the Holy Spirit will do things in a panicky and fickle manner, and it will be difficult to rely on the Spirit of God because you are relying on yourself.

**people who are impatient, fidgety, and panicky because they don't want to lay a good foundation, don't want to grow, don't want to follow the steps, and want to reach the top in one step. But one step can take you to the grave, but not to the sky.

Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. (Genesis 1 : 2 NIV)

The Spirit of God is always at work, and if you want to be calm and peaceful and deal with the vices in yourself, you must know that God is in charge of everything.

You will find that the Doctrine of Destiny does not talk much about the sovereignty of God. It is not because God is not in charge. God's will is accomplished in us, so it is clear that God is in charge. In the first chapter of Genesis or in the later chapters, it doesn't say that God's will is to make many cancer patients or sicknesses on the earth. These are not God's will.

People need to know that God's will is in us and that God is looking for those who believe in him. Those who believe in him should know that God is in charge, and we should not be panicky. In the first chapter of Genesis, you can’t see God flustering. He just does it step by step every day. We need to know that it is by the Spirit of God that things are done, so do not be in a flurry.

I encourage everyone to be a person who has faith and relies on the Spirit of God. Both the Old Testament Bible and the New Testament Bible talk about relying on the Spirit of God. In the New Testament Bible, the man accepted Jesus as his saviour, then was baptized in his name, received the promised Holy Spirit, and was filled with the Holy Spirit.

So, we should always be filled and poured out by the Holy Spirit, but many people do not have faith in them. They only gave a superficial appearance, as if they did the things by themselves. When things are done, they brag about themselves, but if they are not done, they dwell for half a day and then complain with tears that they have not grown recently. This is the time to ask yourself what people have done by themselves.

Some people say they don't know how to rely on the Spirit of God, but, relying on the Spirit of God must be known from enlightenment. We need to know that the gospel we believe in today is a powerful gospel. We must develop a calm and peaceful habit.

This is what the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One of Israel, says: “In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength, (Isaiah 30:15)

We need to grasp the key. The reason why we can be calm and stable and return to rest is because God is in charge, and we can do things by the Spirit of God, so we don't need to be nervous.  If you still don't want to repent and continue to be impatient and run desperately to death, then I can only say may God have mercy and good luck!

We have to understand the will of God. Our minds and wisdom will come back when we are calm because God will give us wisdom. When we rest, we will not be so busy, and we will have wisdom and understand that nothing will collapse. People who are always fidgety are because they are afraid they will collapse if they don't do things in a specific way. Living is a simple thing, but people make it very complicated. Like some pastors, they desperately pull people to the church, but we know that it is useless, so we don't do this and do not care at all.

If we rely on the Spirit of God, we will surely be blessed by God! Let's not talk about others, but let's talk about ourselves. We were busier than Joseph, the prime minister of Egypt; we were busier than Daniel, the prime minister of Babylon; we were busier than Mordecai, the prime minister of the Persian Empire; and we were busier than Nehemiah, the governor of Judah. However, when they were done, they built the walls of the city, and when we were done, the walls of the city collapsed. Therefore, today we should learn to put ourselves down, imitate God, and have a plan when doing things. Living is very simple.

God wants to make you a creative person

The Book of Genesis is not about God creating everything; it is about man learning how God creates. If the things you do are in emptiness, abyss, and darkness, you need to become a man of creation because when we create, things according to their various kinds. **If you want to be a man who manages, you need to manage with creativity.**Our God is the God who does new things. We need to reflect on how long it has been since we have improved. You can't manage without doing new things. Today, we need to think about who is doing new things. It is to improve things, to improve constantly, and it will be more and more clear.

To be a person who can create and manage needs all of that. The first chapter is not talking about God creating; it's for us to learn how God creates and to develop good habits. There are some people who, the more creative they are, the messier they are. That is because they have demons in them, and they are not creating, they are destroying. A person who creates will make things more and more organized, and they do it in a calm mood. So, to become a creative person, you need to think about what you have done and to improve things little by little. After my sharing, I encourage you to clean up your living environment, organize the things you study, and keep creating new ways to study. This is the image of God. Any condition of emptiness and darkness is an opportunity for creation. If you are in a state of emptiness and darkness today, start creating like God and change the place. Let this place be filled with the glory of God and your creativity, which is the will of God.


Firstly, we need to start to change our vision. People who always cry because their vision is not right. They see despair instead of opportunity. Our eyes need to see all the things to be good. Secondly, we need to speak. It is important to speak and be able to describe things. So God created the world through speaking, and we need to create things through speaking too. Today, I shared with you about God's will clearly through speaking, and everything starts through speaking. By describing things clearly, things will be accomplished, and they will be according to their various kinds and get better and better.

May the lord bless you!
