Creation, Dispensation, & Personal Development!

Order is defined as the perfect arrangement of things. It is also the appropriate sequence of events and other things. Note how God created everything in an order before bringing Man on the scene. Turning on the light symbolizes the Conciousness of Man which, initially, was in tune with God because everything He created was good (God-like). Day Two of The Creation is symbolic of the Discernment of Man, and his ability to see his life from a “higher” (more spiritual) perspective.

The Morality of Man is characterized by the Third Day Revelation and how we reap the “seed” which we sow, based on our dedication to either the Fruit of the Spirit, or the non spiritual works of the flesh (Gal. 5:19-23). On Day Four, the Progressiveness of Man (lesser light and greater light; increase in consciousness which he needs in order to make it through the “night falls” in his life) is depicted. Revelation of the Fifth Day is an indication of the Integrity of Man, or his veracity (exactness) in following God’s example so that the Lord’s purpose for creation is realized. The Sixth and Seventh day symbolizes the Refinement and the Perfection of Man respectively.

The Seven Days also correlate to the Seven Dispensations: Innocence (pure conscious), Responsible (discerning right and wrong), Human Government (moral code of sowing and reaping), Promise (progressing to a new day), Law (establishes/maintains integrity), Church (refined by the Holy Spirit), and Kingdom (we are perfected). Notice how the Dispensations which God uses to bring Mankind from innocence to perfection are mirrored by the   Stages of Moral Development for the individual Man today which are:

(1) Punishment and ObedienceBut of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die (see Gen. 2:17).Man’s consciounness was created pure (Gen. 1:28);

(2) Instrumental Exchange –And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons (see Gen. 3:7).” They discerned their nakedness, and realized they had to make amends, or an “exchange”, for their “FALL”, hence the aprons. The God-ordained “exchange” of animal sacrifice is found in (Gen. 3:21), which refutes the notion that such sacrifice is Man-made;

(3) Interpersonal Conformity –Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man (Gen. 9:6)” was God’s pronouncement in the Third Dispensation; this encouraged conformity to moral behavior by imposing a death sentence on killers;

(4) Transitory Stage Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee (Gen. 12:1).” Some in this stage may also become hippie-like as opposed to becoming more moralistic;

(5) Law and Order –Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine (Exo. 19:5)”; and

(6) Prior Rights and Social This stage deals with our individual, inalienable rights; situational ethics; and standards agreed earlier upon by society. In this Dispensation Man’s dominion was restored by the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, who sent the Holy Spirit! And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of My Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams (Act. 2:1/Joe. 2:28).”

The Seventh Stage is called (7) Universal Ethical Principles, and is based on the worth and equality of all human beings (the Golden Rule). It correlates to the Kingdom Dispensation, where we will come to know God personally, are granted the greater at-ONE-ment with Him, and are made perfect.For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put My laws into their mind and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to Me a people; and they shall not teach every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, know the Lord, for all shall know Me… (Heb. 8:10-11).”
