God’s Perfect and Permissive Will
Genesis 1:28 (KJB) And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
God desires to bless and spiritually blossom each person through procreation. Having offspring serves to multiply man’s presence in this world through natural reproduction. According to God’s perfect will man is to reproduce, stand unequivocally for things of God, and have dominion above all creatures by placating in his command over them.
His perfect will, is beautifully declared right here in this scripture verse. It is God’s perfect plan for every man and woman to marry becoming one with each other and God, be fruitful, and multiply to replenish the earth. Since the beginning this is God’s perfect intention and we know that His eternal character and will does not change (Hebrews 13:8).
However, we live in a world with many imperfect and unholy people who choose to exist with spiritual darkness at work in their heart. This leaves them to be naturally subject to whims or the blowing of contrary winds in this world. The call of their flesh often replaces their desire to be found properly submissive to the authority of God.
God’s perfect will is now His permissive will.
God, through His servant Moses, announced permission for divorce in cases of hardened hearts and permits remarriage in certain situations. Marriage unions, which were intended to be inseparable to both God and a spouse, are now subject to fleshly fracturing. They can be broken apart rather than facing any or little attempts at repairing them or facing longsuffering forever.
Boy does this world have God’s perfect will and His permissive will in a twist and backward today. Mankind always favors what seems to be right, what feels too good to their flesh, and what is easy, rather than choosing to live according to the will of God for their life.
Because of a proliferating fleshly identity crisis raging in this world, many are choosing a pathway littered with unfruitful deeds and darkness, decreasing the birth rate and multiplying the abortion rate, and choosing to marry or coexist with whomever they please to please their own dark agenda, rather than living in spiritual alignment with God’s will.
A man’s self-serving nature feeds his own dark and wicked nature, thereby starving any possibility of possessing the holiness and virtue of God for a dark agenda continually works to increase evil.
God’s perfect will calls for having a personal relationship with Him and for the multiplication of man through natural procreation. God gave the example of Adam and Eve and the first family. The Bible’s declaration of being pro-family is clearly declared throughout the whole cannon of scripture, and includes a call for parents to bring their children unto Him:
Genesis 9:1 (KJB) And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.
Matthew 19:13-15 (KJB) Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them. 14 But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven. 15 And he laid his hands on them, and departed thence.
Most people elect to exist in this world being naturally dark and carnally minded, living far from alignment with either God’s perfect or His permissive will. A man’s selfish choices proliferate sin and wickedness blooms into the next generation an even greater wickedness. However, no act or choice man does can snuff out the righteousness and holiness of God, for He is and forever will be alive forever.
