God’s Grace and Holiness

Revelation 4:11

You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for you have created all things, and for your pleasure they are and were created.

Gods grace or unconditional favor was upon man. Man and Woman were meant to rule the earth.

Genesis 1:26

And 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 fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

There was absolutely no real reason or purpose for God to put man in the position he was. Only possible reason was unconditional love.

Genesis 1

28 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.”

29 Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. 30 And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.” And it was so.

Man was king of all of Earth including the land as well as the Seas. It was the Grace of God.

Genesis 2
10 A river watering the garden flowed from Eden; from there it was separated into four headwaters. 11 The name of the first is the Pishon; it winds through the entire land of Havilah, where there is gold. 12 (The gold of that land is good; aromatic resin[d]and onyx are also there.) 13 The name of the second river is the Gihon; it winds through the entire land of Cush.[e] 14 The name of the third river is the Tigris; it runs along the east side of Ashur. And the fourth river is the Euphrates.

So what is really interesting point to the verse you have read is the fact this really supernatural. The river seems to flow ,and become 4 different rivers. Which is abnormal because here it Identified as source. Usually rivers are formed from tributaries. That small river sources ,add up to make a huge river. But here a small river ,why small because it watered a garden. If the river was too big,it might have washed away the garden.

God genuine genius way of providing Grace. So no way Man can say
Well those people just found really cool place thousands of years before and blamed God.It was actually supernatural.

1 Corinthians 1
28.God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things–and the things that are not–to nullify the things that are,
29.That no flesh should glory in his presence.

God is loving and almighty God.

Psalms 96:9
 O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness: fear before him, all the earth.

36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”

37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[a] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b] 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

So if ultimate standard of Holiness for us is love ,how much more does God loves us and all the world, his unconditional love and favor or grace is the beauty of his holiness

Remember God loves you.
