“He knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust” (Psalm 103:14).
When a woman makes a cake she knows what ingredients she puts into it. When I created man I chose every ingredient very carefully; because I saw into the future and knew what the future held for him.
That is why I made him from the dust of the earth, because I knew that he would not be able to keep his original estate (My likeness), and that the day would come when he would fall, and lose his glory, and therefore he would have to return to his origin — the dust of the earth. That is why I said to Adam after he sinned that he would return unto the ground; “For out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art; and unto dust shalt thou return” (Genesis 3:19).
Every cell of your body has the same chemical components as the dead brick of a building. It wasn’t until I breathed LIFE into Adam that he became a living soul. When I withdraw that Breath of Life, man “expires” — he dies; because there is no self-sustaining life in creation, only in the Creator (Acts 17:28)!
On the Resurrection Morning, when the dead in Christ shall rise, those same DNA components out of which you were created will come together again for each individual, in a moment, a twinkling of an eye. My Breath will enter into you and you shall become My great Army (Ezekiel 37:10) who shall rule over this world and succeed where Adam failed (Genesis 1:26). For the Tempter will be kept in prison for a millennium of time, and all his demons and evil principalities and powers will be held in the dungeons of the depths of Hell, called in Scripture, “The Bottomless Pit” (Revelation 20:1-3).
When man fell, not only was he cursed, as the Eternal Life of God left him, the dust of the earth was cursed also. Did I not say to Adam, “Cursed is the ground for thy sake” or as The Message Bible says, “The very ground is cursed because of you” (Genesis 3:17).
But when I died on the cross I not only redeemed the human race, I redeemed the earth, and even the dust of the earth. And on that Glorious Morning when the Dead in Christ shall Rise and the Manifestation of the Sons of God takes place (which all nature waits for with painful groanings), the dust too shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption. So will the animal kingdom, which survives by killing and eating each other, thereby living in fear all their lives. That is why the lion shall eat straw (Isaiah 11:6). When it is delivered, it will no longer devour its fellow creatures, but shall have the appetite of an ox. I will change your appetite too! Enjoy your beefsteaks now! You won’t want to eat meat in the New Kingdom! Heaven’s Menu is very different to the earthly menu.
As a loving father has mercy on his child, I have mercy on My “mud-balls!”
