Watchman Daily Devotional,the Initial Plan For Man Was to Rule the Planet


"He did not subject to angels the world to come, concerning which we are speaking. But one has testified somewhere, saying, 'What is man, that Thou rememberest him? Or the son of man, that Thou art concerned about him? Thou hast made him for a little while lower than the angels; Thou hast crowned him with glory and honor, and hast appointed him over the works of Thy hands; Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet.' For in subjecting all things to him, He left nothing that is not subject to him" (Heb. 2:5-8).

We can't help but wonder, "What is man?" when we consider the small dot we name earth in the middle of the huge, seemingly limitless universe. What right do we have to occupy God's thoughts so much?"

David responded: "Thou hast made him for a little while lower than the angels... crowned him with glory and honor... appointed him over the works of Thy hands... put all things in subjection under his feet" (Heb. 2:6-7). The Hebrews''author used a passage from Psalms (8:4-6) to demonstrate that God created man to be a king.

"Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth" (Gen. 1:26) is surely how David based his psalm. In his primordial will, God intended for man to rule over a pure planet.

God bestowed respect and glory upon Adam when He created him, since he was pure and innocent. "Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet" (Heb. 2:8), declared God, making man the king of the earth. All of God's creation will be subjugated under our feet when we reclaim the right to dominate the planet.


As a way of praising God on your own, read Psalm 8.

Examine Daniel 7:18–27 and take note of the scope of the final authority of the saints.
The initial plan for man was to rule the planet.

The Great Tribulation

It is our belief that the Great Tribulation referred to in the New Testament Book of Revelation (chapters 6-11) is unfolding before our eyes.

The Watchman

In the Bible, the Watchman is responsible for keeping watch and warning others of potential danger or impending judgment. The role is mentioned several times in the Old Testament, particularly in the book of Ezekiel. In Ezekiel 33:6, God says to the prophet Ezekiel, "But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, so that the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any one of them, that person is taken away in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at the watchman's hand."
