Most, if not all of you, reading this know in your hearts that God is the only real answer to the dramatic increase of evil darkness that is attempting to rule the world.

However, the question is, “What can I do about it?”

The answer to this question is not to pray and ask God to fix it. Our first question or prayer should be, “God what do you want me to know about this?” We need to get the answer from God to this question before asking what we should do about any situation we face.


There must be an open channel and a direct connection of an in-love relationship with God to receive a clear understanding of what God wants us to know about the situation.

Father God has provided specific patterns written in the Bible. These patterns are not laws to restrain or limit His people and they are not just to prepare us for heaven after we die. They are the ways of life that bring freedom, righteousness, peace, and joy, in this life.

Through our in-love connection with God, the wisdom of the biblical patterns is revealed in our spirit by Spirit God and then received into our minds. Thus, renewing our minds to the wisdom of God to change us first and then the world around us.

Our natural mind without the Holy Spirit of God within us cannot receive the truth of the revelation of God’s patterns for life.

But as it is written:
“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
Nor have entered into the heart of man
The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.”


A previous article stated, “God’s pattern is the same for family, business, ministry, kingdoms, or any functioning group or institution on Earth.”

Biblical secrets are unseen by natural minds but revealed to the generations of those who love Him. As God’s people fall more intimately in love with Him fresh light reveals more depth of real meaning for the world

Let us look more closely at God’s pattern for the human family on Earth to grasp His pattern for family, business, church, ministry, governments, educational systems, and all other functioning structures of life’s organizations.


God’s original purpose for mankind includes being His special spiritual sons on Earth to oversee and care for His marvelous and beautiful creation of life from spiritual heaven on Planet Earth, all to the GLORY of GOD.

God first formed Adam of dirt and breathed His own Spirit life into him making him a living Spirit being in an earthly body. (Genesis 2-7).

Genesis 2:15-17, “Then the Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it. 16, And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, ‘Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; 17, but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.’”

All mankind descends from Adam. Therefore, Adam represents all mankind at that time. All mankind fell when Adam fell.

Mankind’s first job toward the Garden is to tend and keep it. We are here individually and as a family to tend or trim and to keep or take care of this world. We are God’s family on Earth to bring forth the created order of God as it is in heaven on Earth by His wisdom and power.

Adam was told he could freely eat from all the trees of the Garden except one. God told him not to eat of the tree of the “knowledge of good and evil” because the day he did eat of it he would “surely die.”

Adam had a choice to trust God and His words or to figure things out from his own mind (the Tree of Knowledge). Pure holy love always begs a willing response.

Briefly stated the “Tree of Knowledge” refers in part to mankind independently of God valuing his own understanding above what God says. It is replacing Spirit God with our own thoughts apart from God. It is man figuring out what is good or evil in his own mind. The “Tree of Life” involves hearing and aligning with God by the word of His Spirit.


Genesis 2:18-23, “And the Lord God said, ‘It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.’ 19, Out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the air, and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them. And whatever Adam called each living creature, that was its name. 20, So Adam gave names to all cattle, to the birds of the air, and to every beast of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper comparable to him.”

21, And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. 22, Then the rib which the Lord God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man.

23, And Adam said:
‘This is now bone of my bones
And flesh of my flesh;
She shall be called Woman,
Because she was taken out of Man.’”

Have you ever wondered why God made all the animals with mates but made Adam alone without a mate? This has to do with being made in the image and likeness of God. GOD ALSO HAD NO MATE IN HEAVEN.

There is no multiplication of souls in heaven.

God created everything that is in heaven including the angels and His Son. All spirits were created in heaven. However, no earthly flesh, bone, or blood is made in heaven.


Planet Earth and human beings are largely about pro-creation, THE CREATION OF NEW SOULS ON EARTH TO COMPLETE THE FAMILY OF GOD IN HEAVEN ON EARTH. God like Adam had no mate and thereby no system or means of pro-creation.

God made a mate for Adam from Adam.

God is making His mate BRIDE from Himself on Earth.

God in Christ Jesus is multiplying “many sons” with His Bride on Earth. He is bringing many Sons to GLORY. (Romans 8:14) (Hebrews 2:10).

When we fall in love with God and are as married to Him we can produce children that can grow into marriage with God and sons that can become the army of the love of God ruling on Earth bringing heaven to earth, and all things become one in God. (Romans 8:19-22) (Matthew 19,4-5)


Natural marriage and family on earth is to be a perfect replica of the Heavenly marriage and family of God. It is the model or picture whereby mankind can understand the spiritual reality.

Genesis 2:24-25: “Therefore, a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.”

For years in my distant past, I was often involved in marriage counseling. One common but serious problem was husbands who were still under the dominance of their fathers or “tied to their mother’s apron strings.” Perhaps even more often the new wife would look to her father or mother for guidance instead of her husband. Sometimes even a pastor would be trusted above the husband’s leadership. (More on the perfect husband later.)

Leaving mother and father and establishing another family under God is necessary for a godly family. The parents become grandparents and should always be considered for advice to the new husband and wife but not the final say. Only the husband and wife together under God must make the decisions as an autonomous family.

The husband and the wife are to become ONE in pure holy love. This can only happen when they each become one with God in love with Him.

25, “And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.”

There is enormous attraction to being physically naked without shame. However, this verse also means more than just physical nakedness. It also means being transparent or without hidden secrets or agendas.

Speaking the truth in love is a must for true love relationships.

Marriages can be severely challenged when deep-hidden secrets are discovered. And even when they are not yet discovered, they can cause distance in the pure deep relationship of becoming and remaining as ONE.

Yes, godly wisdom and pure love must be a part of revealing deep or dark secrets. Truth in love earlier is better than revealing hidden secrets later. True love of God will make room for hearing secrets that could cause shame. God can show us how and when to reveal so that we are naked and unashamed together as one.

Summary: This is only the beginning of this pattern of God. So far we have looked at the general purpose for mankind and family on earth and how to hear or receive the biblical patterns from God. We touched on being formed by God to be His Bride or mate just as Adam’s mate was made from a part of his own body. From the Body of Christ God is making His Bride or mate. We have ONE God. If we are the Bride of Christ, we are the Bride of God. We also looked briefly at producing or becoming sons of God and ruling on earth by the direction and empowerment of God. We also spoke of the transparency in the two becoming one in marriage.

We will be covering much more new detail of the family pattern including the offices of service of husband, wife, children, and servants, and how that order relates to business, ministry, and all relational structures in the world.

“For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” Ephesians 5:31.
