Fifteen - Kingdom Handed to His People
Fifteen is the hand of the Spirit and the handing of the kingdom to His people. For the kingdom has been handed over to His people to complete the Spirit's works. And when the work of the Spirit is complete, all shall be handed back to the Father.
“God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. God blessed them; and God said to them, ‘Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth.’” (Genesis 1:27-28) Thus God handed His kingdom to mankind, that man may complete His good works. For “You make him to rule over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet, all sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field, the birds of the heavens and the fish of the sea, whatever passes through the paths of the seas.”(Psalms 8:6-8) But man in his ignorance and greed, has fornicated and destroyed the inheritance of the earth. Thus mankind and earth shall be destroyed. “For the Lord has a day of vengeance, a year of recompense for the cause of Zion. Its streams will be turned into pitch, and its loose earth into brimstone, and its land will become burning pitch. It will not be quenched night or day; its smoke will go up forever. From generation to generation it will be desolate;none will pass through it forever and ever.” (Isaiah 34:8-10)
