Few Important Points to Understand:
- If it was created, God created it
- If it was created, it was created good.
- Darkness isn’t a creation, it is an absence
- When we remove God from the picture, what was created good reverts back to a state of disorder and darkness
- Therefore if I want to restore it, I must return it!

THREE SIXTH DAY CREATIONS THAT THE ENEMY IS SEEKING TO DESTROY IN THE LAST DAYS

#1 IN THE BEGINNING GOD CREATED MALE AND FEMALE, BLESSED THEM, AND CALLED THEM VERY GOOD

vs 26 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. And God blessed them.

- Gender (male and female) finds identity in God
- Gender is both Distinct and Divine

Why is this important: If your identity is rooted in the way you were created, then the fulfillment of your purpose, personality, and passion is found in a connection with your Creator

If you want to restore it, you must return it!

#2 IN THE BEGINNING GOD CREATED MARRIAGE, BLESSED IT, AND CALLED IT VERY GOOD

Genesis 2:21–25
21 So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh. 22 And the rib that the Lord God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man. 23 Then the man said,
“This at last is bone of my bones
and flesh of my flesh;
she shall be called Woman,
because she was taken out of Man.”
24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. 25 And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.

- Marriage is the first institution in Scripture
- God officiated the first marriage ceremony
- God gave away the first bride
- Jesus began his public ministry at a wedding
- Jesus affirmed marriage

Mark 10:6–9 (ESV) 6 But from the beginning of creation, ‘God made them male and female.’ 7 ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, 8 and the two shall become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two but one flesh. 9 What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.”

Why this is important… In order for Marriage to be blessed it must remain in the hands of the one who created it, and called it Good

Hebrews 13:4 (ESV)
4 Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.

Marriage is HOLY and BLESSED… a paper from a state doesn’t make it holy or blessed… placing it in Gods hands does!

If you want to restore it, you must return it!

#3 IN THE BEGINNING GOD CREATED THE FAMILY, BLESSED IT AND CALLED IT VERY GOOD

vs 28 And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

- The FAMILY was God’s design for filling the earth and building community and nations
- The FAMILY is of the utmost importance
- The FAMILY is where you learn: identity, values, culture, language
- The FAMILY is where a son learns to be a man and a daughter learns to be a woman.
- The FAMILY is where children learn how to pray and how to be men and women of God in the home.

Study after study affirms that the FAMILY is the single largest factor in the success of a child

Is it any wonder the enemy is so focused on destroying family

If you want to restore it, you must return it!
