All of creation is waiting for the unveiling of ABBA's children, because creation itself will be freed from its bondage, when it sees ABBA's sons and daughter's enter into the glory of the freedom of His children (Romans 8:19-21).
JESUS was not limited to the ways of the orphan system of this world - even paid His taxes by sending His friend Peter fishing. Creation responded to His needs, because He was in full heart alignment with His ABBA (Matthew 17:24-27; John 5:19).
In the same way, creation responds to our needs, the more we wake up to our sonship and learn to rest in ABBA's embrace (Romans 8:14-17). In fact, this is the reason JESUS came - to reveal Who ABBA is and who we are in relationship to Him (John 17:26; 1. John 1:5; 1. John 3:1-2; John 10:34-38; Psalm 82:6).
Everything that has been lost in Adam is being restored back to us in JESUS, the Second Adam (1. Corinthians 15:22, 45; Romans 5:12-20). In fact, CHRIST is the blueprint of humanity, which was made in His Image (Genesis 1:26; Colossians 1:15), hence Adam was called the ‘son of God’ (Luke 3:38).
Paul speaks about the times of ignorance being over and how all men are called to wake up from their blindness to embrace their True Origin and identity (Acts 17:22-28) – with everything that entails.
This is the reason why Adam too was a magnet of favor as creation responded to him and the river Pishon even yielded its gold to him, without any sort of striving on his side (that was a result of being alienated from his FATHER later on – Genesis 3:17; Romans 8:20-21).
There was no toil and no sweat. For all we know, Adam might have tended to the garden simply through the spoken word, just as his FATHER framed the worlds (Genesis 1; Hebrews 11). In the same way, we see Adam speaking into creation as he named the animals and gave them thus their identity in relation to himself.
But even though Adam didn’t labor, he was nevertheless fruitful. The same is true for the restored new creation – more fruit, less striving. As we tend the garden of pleasure (which is what ‘Eden’ means), feasting on our ABBA’s love, creation will equally respond and we will be given wisdom of how to become channels of blessing and bliss for the rest of creation – all the while enjoying ourselves.
For in Christ the curse has been lifted that was enforced by the law of Moses on account of creation’s futility (Galatians 3:13; Romans 5:13, 8:20-21). Christ came so that our joy would be complete and we would have life in all its fullness and abundance (John 10:10, 15:11; Colossians 2:10). Even though we might at present not enjoy all aspects of our life and work, we can begin to experience the bliss of the new creation already.
For the more we find rest in the reality of our ABBA’s embrace and the truth of our sonship, the more joy, contentment and fulfilment we will experience – even in the midst of our struggles (for nothing can separate us from His love) – and creation will increasingly respond to our needs, so that we ourselves become channels of ABBA's abundance. For this is ultimately what creation is longing for.
