ADAM AND EVE’S COMMISSION
Adam and Eve, creatures in His image, filled with His glory, reflecting His righteousness, were commissioned with a one-sentence command: “Be fruitful and multiply, and replenish the earth and subdue it…” They were created with a natural fertility according to their kind. It was expected of them to put their fertility into action, so that the replenishment could take place. This was the beginning of an earth filled with a God-kind of people – a human race in constant fellowship with their Creator – a kingdom that would rule over the animal world.
God had no intention to grow this race by adding more to it, but chose for them to multiply themselves. This would cause a hereditary multiplication of that which God had created in His image, giving man the pleasure to create with God, through a natural ability placed within him. Until this day, every parent is filled with awe at the birth of a child. The thought that they had a part in this wonderful creation is overwhelming.
Father’s vision was that the expansion of the human race should result in a replenishment of the earth. The vision was an earth filled with a people expressing the glory of God, living in a state of complete righteousness and enjoying an intimate relationship with Father. However, the sad story is that the first Adam failed through sin and the thus the entire
human race fell into a hereditary cycle of sin and death. Did it change Father’s heart for the world? No, not at all.
From the moment that God declared “And I will put enmity between you and the woman and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head and you will strike his heel.” (Genesis 3:15), Father put in place a rescue plan and doomed satan to defeat. In an instant, the heavenly announcement echoed through all eternity, declaring the promise of the last Adam who would crush satan’s head.
THE LAST ADAM’S COMMISSION
So, what does this have to do with church planting? Let the last Adam unfold it for us. He took up the commission of the first Adam to restore everything that Father had in mind for us (Acts 3:21). Father’s vision is to see all men saved and coming to the knowledge of the truth. Christ, the last Adam, came to redeem us from the bondage of sin and death. He
restored righteousness by becoming our righteousness. He came to establish God’s Kingdom here on earth as it is in heaven.
The commission to the first Adam was, “Be fruitful…” It is written about the last Adam that, “He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.” (Col 1:15) “And He is the head of the body, the church; He is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead…” (Col 1:18) Jesus is showing His fruitfulness through his body – the
church. Just like the first Adam was made fruitful to multiply the human race, so the last Adam is made fruitful to multiply His body (the church) throughout the earth.
He said, “…I will build My church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.” (Matt 16:18) The prophet Habakkuk declared Father’s vision for the earth when he said, “For the earth .will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.” (Habakkuk 2:14) How is Father going to do this unless it is done through His bride, the church? The church is the reflection and carrier of His glory. In Paul’s epistle to the Corinthians he says, “And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into His likeness with ever-increasing glory which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.” (2 Cor 3:16).
The last Adam is fulfilling Father’s vision through multiplying His church throughout the earth. Through this reproduction the earth is receiving the knowledge of the glory of the Lord. As the church is multiplied, it brings the incarnate presence of Christ into a community.
