Godís Deputy is an insight to the purpose of God for man on Earth, to live life without crawling. God said to man whatever you shall bind on earthÖ so itís in heaven God gave man the dominion right over every creatures and said to him have dominion, subdue and rule the earth, while He (God) rules the Heaven. Man became a representative of Godís ability and strength on earth. His symbol of divine authority and the mouth piece of the immortal omnipotent God. Man has continued to exhibit a dynamic ability, given the power to named whatever on earth. Satan is not the God of this world as we have been indoctrinated to believe. He is the ruler of the kingdom of darkness. The kingdom of darkness in this context is the ignorance of men. Therefore any man living in ignorance is living in the kingdom of darkness where Satan is the boss. Satan is also refers to as the god of the worldly systems or the god of the evil world. (II Corinthians 4:4). Ephesians 6:12 gives the understanding that the devil is the ruler of darkness of this age. Understand also that principalities and powers, the rulers of darkness of this world and spiritual wickedness in high places are the cadres in satanic hierarchy. And Satan rules the world of darkness from the sit called RULERS. The Earth was given to man as a kingdom to rule. Having lost the dominion right in the Garden of Eden, God made a redemptive plan to restore manís lost kingdom through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Man is a direct investment of Godís potential and ability.
A definite carrier of His image and likeness. He said, ďYe are godsĒ. Man was made to be a ruler to rule over the fowls of the air; the fishes in the water; and the creeping things on the land. If God was to rule on earth physically, he will be a stranger. Man is a candidate of representation to effect a change on earth. We are to dispense Godís attributes and ability. Speaking on Godís behalf entails to be the mouth-piece of God. We are made to order things in it right place by divine authoritative language. Man is in partnership in executing Godís plan on earth.
ďAnd he said unto Abram, know of a surety that your seed shall be a stranger in a land (Egypt) that is not theirs and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years, and also that nation whom they shall serve will I judge and afterward shall they come out with great substanceĒ Genesis 15:13-14.
God saw the future suffering of the seeds of Abraham. God has the ability to know the future from the beginning. Having revealed to Abraham about Israel captivity in Egypt, also He promised them deliverance. How could this have been possible if no one was to speak for God? God is not going to live on earth physically to have fulfilled this great assignment. After their captivity of four hundred years, God looked for a vessel to speak for him. And He found Moses a chosen vessel. This will be discussed more in chapter 2. The same power that prevails in heaven is to be dispensed on earth. Earth is to be part of heaven, and there will always be days of heaven on earth. Man is an instruments designed to be assign for signs. We are to bring to pass the days of heaven on earth. God has given the earth to be subdued and dominated. We are made to interpret Godís mind and purpose, to find a direction in them to please Him. In a definite attitude, we are Godís ladder to the Earth. Itís a sincere Gospel truth, that if you remove man from the earth, then God will be handicap on earth. We are the hands and legs of God. His mouth piece. God said: ďwe are the apple of His eyesĒ. God canít express Himself perfectly in any other creatures, but man is a visible likeness of God, having His divine nature.
ďBear with me a little, and I will show you that there are yet words to speak on Godís behalfĒ. Job 36:1. Every one of us can speak on Godís behalf. Just like Elihu. Remember, man is a Pencil in Godís hand. We donít look like apes, we are not a product of Evolution, and we certainly look like God and we operates through His delegated authority to us as sons.
ďWhen I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers. The moon and the stars, which you have ordained, What is man that you are mindful of him? And the son of man that you visit him? For you have made him a little lower than the angels (Elohim) And you have crowned him with glory and honour. You have put all things under his feet, All sheep and oxen Even the beasts of the field, The birds of the air, And the fish of the sea That passes through the path of the seas O Lord, our Lord How excellent is your name in all the earthĒ. Psalm 8:3-9.
The name of the Lord will become excellent on the earth, when man takes his rightful position as Godís Deputy. What is man, that you are mindful of him, David who wrote this Psalm asked this question. God have been so mindful of man, and He crowned him with glory and honour, and made him have dominion over the works of His hands. This really amazed me how God lavished his love, strength and authority on man. Man became a General Overseer of Godís creation. There is no other way to describe man, than to describe him as Servant of God, a Representative, an Ambassador, a Deputy General, and a General Manager of Godís creation on earth. By this responsibility of man, the Excellency of God is reveal all over the earth. To speak on Godís behalf as His deputy on earth is one of the purposes of God for creating man with cordial fellowship where man has the opportunity to lavish worship on his creator. Man was created to represent Godís interest and to be a God on earth.
