(Gen 1:28a) “And God blessed them; and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule…” Considering the definitions of God’s original (and unchanged) intention (“subdue” and “rule”), it would appear that we have a mission laid out before us with authority to get it done. Scripture offers the understanding that the Last Adam has won back all that the first Adam forfeited. It would appear that God actually is not responsible for evil happenings since He handed over the earth to Adam to “subjugate,” “prevail against,” “reign,” “tread down” and “keep under”.

No matter what national or worldwide catastrophe is making headlines, we are already obligated to the purposes of Almighty God in this earth. Really bad things that happen may make it a bit more difficult to get certain things accomplished and they may knock the wind out of us but they must not become insurmountable walls to us; they must only be obstacles which we overcome on our way to fulfillment of purpose.
May the Lord awaken people to true concerns about life and our nation. May people awaken and embrace biblical values, and think and act righteously so that our families and our nation not go to ruin.
“Woe to you who are rushing headlong to disaster! Catastrophe is just around the corner! Woe to those who live in luxury and expect everyone else to serve them! Woe to those who live only for today, indifferent to the fate of others! Woe to the playboys, the playgirls, who think life is a party held just for them! Woe to those addicted to feeling good—life without pain! those obsessed with looking good—life without wrinkles! They could not care less about their country going to ruin.” (Amos 6:3-6, Msg)
