【Bible Study】Genesis 02 Part 2: All of God's Creation Have Life! (2022-11-28)

Bible Study: Genesis

All Living Organisms Created by God Have the Right to Make Choices

Hello, everyone! Today, let's continue with Genesis chapter 2. What did we talk about last week? Last time, we talked about a big topic, "All of God's Creations Have Life", which shows that living things are great. The two things that are important are "living" and "life.".

If you search the Internet, the Bible study on Genesis that you find is not the same as what I am talking about. Over the years, I have not been particularly satisfied with the Genesis Bible studies that I have found. Later, I simply made one myself. It turns out that there is a lot of spiritual knowledge in it. God's creation is alive; it has life.

Last time, we talked about the fourth point. The first point is an introduction; the second point is that everything that has life needs rest; the third point is that God made the seed; and the fourth point is that God made a living being with a spirit. Today we are talking about the fifth point, which is that as long as something is alive and has life, it has the right to make choices. Man has the right to make choices, and man is not a puppet, which is the most amazing thing of all God's creations.

The pets have lives and are not puppets. Do you want to be a puppet, or do you want to be a living person? You have the right to choose because, among all these things that God made, there is a very amazing thing: the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

And the Lord God commanded the man, "You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die." (Genesis 2:16-17)

This is an interesting word. When I lead Bible studies, I find it often a bit strange that Christians ask, "Why did God make the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil?" It's as if he is more powerful than God. Some may say, "If God had not made this, there would be no such thing." However, this is God's great plan. If you don't know that this is God's great plan, you are identifying the knowledge of good and evil and thinking that God did a bad job and should have done something different.

Although I am not God, I have a good understanding of several things that have been examined in detail. We need to develop an attitude of learning, and a rigorous attitude of learning is closely related to being a human being. God made a fruit of knowledge of good and evil to tell us that we are living creatures and have the right to make decisions, either to live or to die. It is not God who makes your decisions; it is you who make them.

Some people live until they are 50 years old and don't understand why they live like this, yet it is all the decisions they made. Or you may say you were tricked by the devil, but the devil didn't force you with a knife or a gun. Everything was chosen by yourself, and you have to take responsibility for your own choices.

Sometimes, we look at things and feel it is unfair, but if you study carefully, each person in this generation has the right to make decisions, and different choices have different lives. Later, we concluded that all poor people have something to hate.

I have ministered to a lot of poor people. Later, I found that these people have dirty minds. They always make wrong decisions, do wrong things, do not have that rigorous learning attitude, and do not want to understand the things they do not know. If people do a little research to understand before choosing, they will not be tricked. There are people who are cheated by someone and lose a million dollars and ask God why He doesn't stop them. How can you blame God for your decisions? God gives you the right to choose. How you choose, is your destiny.

It is a little difficult to fool me because I want to understand everything. It is very important to learn to make the right decisions.

I made my choice by understanding the law of things. Many people today are often fooled, so can you learn not to be fooled? Can you figure out how to choose and build a logic for making choices? Adam and Eve ate the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil, showing that God created man with the right to make choices. If a man often makes the wrong choices in their life, then that is your choice!

I have often wondered how to make my brothers and sisters wise because a person who is not rigorous can easily be cheated and fooled. A few days ago, one of our sisters was cheated by someone, and she was going to send tens of thousands of dollars to that person. Then the police called her and told her not to send any more money to that person. It is a scam.

If you also got scammed, is it your fault because is you pressed the button to send the money. People are often not rigorous in their work and study, so the Doctrine of Destiny is trying to help brothers and sisters solve the problem of not having a smart mind.

There is another sister among us, she is a lawyer. One day, the province where she lives suddenly had a policy that every lawyer is required to do a live broadcast, and she ended up being ranked first because we told her to do live streaming two years ago. Now, she has a lot of followers, so she immediately became number one. I'm happy that this person is finally a living person!

Some years ago, I found that Christians who believed in the Lord would become foolish, which made me feel upset. God made the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil because this is God's wisdom, God's action, so that you can be trained to live like a living person and make the right choices. To accomplish this goal, God does not care how many people choose to eat the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, nor does he care how many people die. As long as a few people make the right choice, God will be happy.

Therefore, I hope that our brothers and sisters can follow me to minister to people so that they can come out of their foolishness. People must learn to learn and maintain a rigorous attitude toward everything, not just learning.
You have the right to make choices, and you need to study the choices you make. I work fast because I like to think about how to work. My mom make dumpling, noodle fast, and I can make it fast too. She wondered why I do fast because I don't do a lot of homework. I don't actually do it, but I use my brain to figure out how to do it and watch while others do it. Soon, I know how to do it.

Management is the Responsibility of a Living Person

There are people who don't care about anything. Some people start to do nothing in their forties and retire. Doing nothing is similar to eating, drinking, and waiting for death. Eating, drinking, and waiting for death are not the kinds of things that a living person should do. If you don't work, then how can you live? I like to work. I made a secret decision in my heart that if I didn't die today, I would work. What exactly is "work"? All the work is management.

Often, there are some 70-year-old people who retire and begin to eat, drink, and wait for death. If you come to the Doctrine of Destiny, I will give you work to make you alive. If a person can't work, they're dead. I was thinking that management is the right of the living person. Then I figured out that management is work, and doing work is management.

What is management? I then often denied myself. Our Bible study on Genesis is the sixth edition of the Doctrine of Destiny. The reason why there are so many editions is that I always feel like I am not doing the right thing. I find that management is very interesting. I always feel like I'm not doing it right. I used to tell people that management is about managing people and things, but I always felt that I did not talk about the fundamental principle of management.

Then I asked myself, "If I make a male cat into a female cat and a female cat into a male cat, am I doing something that humans should do?" No, this is not renewing because this is against the original law of things. Later, I thought about it carefully, and my understanding of management was upgraded. Maybe in the future, I will deny this understanding of myself, so you must renew your understanding with my new version.

God's destiny for Adam and Eve was management. The example I just gave you is to let you understand that it is not management. True management is management according to the original law of things, and the result of management is to multiply. For example, if this is a cat, you should follow the laws of cats to manage it. If this is a pig, you should manage it according to the laws of the pig. What I mean here is that you should manage according to the laws of people like you.

When I have understood this matter of management, I minister to people according to their wants. Later on, I began to understand that the most important responsibility of a teacher is not to pass on knowledge but to motivate students according to their abilities so that they can learn.

The external factor can be effective only if people have internal motivation! It is the teacher's job to motivate the students, and business management should do the same thing to motivate the employees. doing transcription is to motivate you so you have the wants to move forward. Some brothers and sisters have been doing text transcription for a year, so they can go to the next level to train the people below them, which means they can go into management. You don't always have the opportunity to manage in a business, but you can do it in a church. I used to learn all my management knowledge in the church, and then I was promoted in the workplace so I could manage people.

Managing in business and managing in the church are completely different levels of management. Managing the birds of the air and the beasts of the earth requires different management methods. Adam and Eve were managed by the snake because their brains were not good. Management is very important, and the authority should not be reversed. The person doing management should have a very clear head. The managers have big responsibilities, and they need to learn, explore the nature and law of things, and move forward with the team.

Management is the responsibility of a living person. You must like the work. You will have a bad head if you do not work.

Managing people is to manage them according to what is inside them so that they can be motivated, and managing things is to grasp the essence.

My management approach is very simple. It is about efficiency, creativity, and innovation. Before, you needed to do the work for 10 hours, today, you can do it in 5 hours, or even 1 hour. Through this, the student will surely become a top student. People do everything well because they can grasp the essence. This is all trained by the Doctrine of Destiny!

"Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will send you out to fish for people." (Matthew 4:19)

Management needs to grasp the essence of things. If you are a teacher, you need to motivate students; if you are a manager, you need to motivate your employees so that they will love to work. I used to think about how to make my employees willing to work? 

Then I came up with this solution: I took a newspaper with two positions listed on it, one with a monthly salary of $20,000 and the other with a monthly salary of $50,000. The employee's current monthly salary was only $7,000, so I asked him if he wanted to have the $20,000 position, and of course, he does. Then I encouraged him to work well, and I promised him that I would give him a good project in the future so that he could put it on his resume after he finished it, and I would attach a recommendation letter to him. In addition, if there is a good opportunity, I would tell him. In this way, he was very motivated. Later, I just need to advise my employees to take a rest. Once people work for themselves, they will have motivation.

Every Living Thing Needs a Spouse

Every living thing requires a spouse, which is God's most wonderful creation.Flowers are pollinated with "pistils and stamens," and God wants to create a mate for man to help him.

The Lord God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him." (Genesis 2:18)

God looked at the birds and the beasts and thought they were not good enough, so he took a rib from Adam and created a woman. Thus, the man needs to leave his parents and become united to his wife, and they become one flesh. This is a great mystery: When God created Adam, he said that Eve was "bone of his bones and flesh of his flesh," so she was called a woman, but in the end, she became a bone spur. Many people think that God's creation failed and that husband and wife became "enemies" after living together. In fact, God's creation did not fail; it prefigured Christ and the church. Man became a living person with the Spirit, and the church became a living church with the Spirit. The Spirit of God fills the body of Jesus Christ, which is the church. The Bible says that Jesus is the head, and the church is his body.

Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. After all, no one ever hated their own body, but they feed and care for their body, just as Christ does the church— for we are members of his body. For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh." This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church. (Ephesians 5:22-32)

Paul was speaking about the relationship between Christ and the church, not about the things that happen in our marriages. The first couple that God created was not good, so how can the next couple be good? God created Adam and Eve, but they could not become one flesh. How can today's couple become one flesh? What I mean is that if we can live well in our marriages, then live well; if we can't, don't take it too seriously. One thing that needs to be emphasized is that Christ and the church must become one flesh.

If the church is dead and not filled with the Spirit of God, then it is in trouble. There are many people who are not healed who come to us and get healed because the Spirit of God is in us. We try to be united with Christ, which is the will of God, and the book of Genesis is referring to this too. Today you can gradually understand the theological system of the apostle Paul, which refers to something other than marriage.

Now for the matters you wrote about: "It is good for a man not to have sexual relations with a woman." (Corinthians 7:1)

Are you pledged to a woman? Do not seek to be released. Are you free from such a commitment? Do not look for a wife. But if you do marry, you have not sinned; and if a virgin marries, she has not sinned. But those who marry will face many troubles in this life, and I want to spare you this. What I mean, brothers and sisters, is that the time is short. From now on those who have wives should live as if they do not; those who mourn, as if they did not; those who are happy, as if they were not; those who buy something, as if it were not theirs to keep; those who use the things of the world, as if not engrossed in them. For this world in its present form is passing away. I would like you to be free from concern. An unmarried man is concerned about the Lord’s affairs—how he can please the Lord. But a married man is concerned about the affairs of this world—how he can please his wife. (Corinthians 7:27-33)

This is the apostle Paul's system of theology, so, we need to know that Genesis Chapter 2 is about the church and Christ. This is why the Doctrine of Destiny focuses more on building a church full of God's glory and the presence of God's Spirit. It is the will of God. Today, we need to know that in order to be fruitful and numerous, we must be united with Christ. To have many children does not mean to have children of the flesh. It is talking about the children of heaven.

All of God's creations have life, but man chose the path of death.Today, if we want to be alive, we must have the Spirit of God, and the Spirit of God must dwell in the church. The church must unite with Christ Jesus. Let us go back to Genesis chapter 2: the first point is that all of God's creation has life, and the analysis then moves on to rest, seeds, having a spirit, making choices, management, and spouse, all of which are explained clearly, step by step.But hopefully, in a few years, we will come back to read Genesis 2 with an upgraded version.

May the Lord bless you!
