Notes

Genesis 1:1 (ESV)
1 In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.

In the beginning God created everything out of nothing.

The “everything” He made was basically manifest in two realms:
1. Spiritual Realm
2. Natural Realm

Romans 1:20 (NASB)
20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.

The World is language to communicate the glorious realities of the eternal and invisible God.

We are actually called on to set our “Eyes” upon the invisible realm which is the eternal realm.

2 Corinthians 4:18 (ESV)
18 as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.

So, in a real sense - the spiritual realm is the Root of Reality and the natural realm is the Fruit of Reality.

An unintended and unholy divide is produced between these two realms after Creation by the Fall of Satan and a third of all angels.

Genesis 1:2 (ESV)
2 The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.

But immediately we see God in the Spirit Realm activating dominion order into the chaotic and devastated natural realm.

Genesis 1:4-5 (ESV)
4 And God saw that the light was good. And God separated the light from the darkness.
5 God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day.

Actually man is made to be God’s image bearing partner who brings the Lord’s LIFE and RULE into the natural realm.

Genesis 1:26-28 (ESV)
26 Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
28 And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

Man is clearly revealed as the most unique creature in all of God’s creation.
Not only is his source God - but his very DNA contains the breath of God.

Genesis 2:7 (ESV)
7 then the Lord God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature.

Jesus was the ultimate spiritual man walking in the natural realm releasing supernatural power to heal, restore, and deliver.

We are called to walk in two realms.
1) Ephesians 1:1 (ESV)
1 Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, To the saints who are in Ephesus, and are faithful in Christ Jesus:

2) Ephesians 2:6 (ESV)
6 and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,

3) Ephesians 6:12 (ESV)
12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.

True discipleship will train a born again believer how walk in both realms.
And also how to manifest the life and power found in Christ through the Holy Spirit, in the spirit-realm, into the natural realm.

We are to pray, preach, and minster the Kingdom of Heaven into the Earth.
