MAN: THE FIRST; THE HEAD PART 2

                                    The divine recognition



After God formed the woman and brought her to the man. The story was different. The first thing was recognition; she was recognized as part of his own body. Though with different modifications - feminine. The second thing was a nomenclature declaration: "She shall be called a woman".

Two quick questions here: how does he figure it out that she was taken from the man? and, how does he think of naming her a woman?


Inspiration! It was through Inspiration; the breathe of God. The man who named thousands of animals wouldn't had found it difficult to name the one taken out of his own body.

He is the man, the first, the head.


...she shall be called a woman... In our era, when you first meet that woman of your dream, the ensuing enquiry include: "may I know your name? May I have your number? May I know your place?", and the likes. But for the first man, it was 'she shall be called...' This is awesome! Indeed, he was the man; the first; the head.

He recognized, accepted and named the product of his bone.


What do you call her? It is a good thing she's dear to you. Your honey, your sweetie, your sweetheart, beloved and lots more, to express the dept of her uniqueness when she's adorable. All those are indeed fascinating!


Conversely, what do you call her when her flaws manifest? A moron? Idiot? Beast? Witch? Stupid and the likes. If you're in this category she'd never be proud of you as the man, the first and the head. Like Nabal "...and the name of his wife Abigail: and she was a woman of good understanding, and of a beautiful countenance: but the man (Nabal) was churlish and evil in his doing" 1 Samuel  25:3. One can clearly understood the picture that Nabal was an insolent. Perhaps, a man who called his woman diverse kinds of unworthy names.


"Let not my lord, I pray thee, regard this man of Belial, even Nabal: for as his name is, so is he; Nabal is his name, and folly is with him..." 1 Samuel  25:25. This is the testimony of a woman the bible identified as "a woman of good understanding, and of a beautiful countenance".


Who then is Nabal? He must be a very terrible man. Are you a man? What type of man are you? Are you the man; the first? The head? Or you're just another Nabal?


Think about it....!


Till we meet again

Peace
