God's pattern: restoration through judgement

The big flood
Step 1: The sin
Everyone on earth was sinning, like very very very very significantly. Stealing, killing etc.
Gen 6:11-12 v.11 Now the earth was corrupt in God's sight and was full of violence. v.12 God saw how corrupt the earth had become, for all the people on earth had corrupted their ways.

Step 2: The judgement
God knew that he had to wipe earth clean of everything living.
Gen 6:13 v.13 So God said to Noah, "I'm going to put an end to all people, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth.

Step 3: The called
God called Noah and told him that he, his wife, his sons, his son's wives and 2 of every kinds of animals should go inside the ark.
Gen 6:18-20 v.18 But I will establish my covenant with you, and you will enter the ark----you and your sons and your wife and your son's wives with you. v.19 You are to bring into the ark two of all living creatures, male and female, to keep them alive with you. v.20 Two of every kind of bird, of every kind of animal and of every kind of creature that moves along the ground will come to you to be kept alive.

Step 4: The promise
God promised that he would never ever again flood the earth.
Gen 9:11 v.11 I establish my covenant with you: Never again will all life be cut off by the waters of a flood to destroy the earth."

Step 5: The command
God commanded Noah to be fruitful (have lotso kids) and fill the earth.
Gen 9:7 v.7 As for you, be fruitful and increase in number; multiply on the earth and increase upon it."

The tower of Babel
Step 1: The sin
The people decided to build a huge tower so that they could be great (I think they were basically telling God they were better then him).
Gen 11:4 v.4 Then they said, "Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves and not be scattered over the face of the whole earth

Step 2: The judgement
God decide to spread confusion so they couldn't finish their work.
Gen 11:7 v.7 Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other."

Step 3: The called
God chose Abram from all of the people from the tower of Babel.
Gen 12:1 v.1 The LORD had said to Abram, "Leave your country, your people and your father's household and go to the land I will show you.

Step 4: The promise
God promised that he would have lots and lots of kids, that the kids would stay in the promised land (if they obeyed him) and that the kids would bless the whole earth.
Gen 15:5 v.5 He took him outside and said, "Look up at the heavens and count the stars---if indeed you can count them." Then he said to him, "So shall your offspring be."

Step 5: The command
God commanded Abram to just leave everything and go to some place.
Gen 12:1 v.1 The LORD had said to Abram, "Leave your country, your people and your father's household and go to the land I will show you.

Human Rebellion

The proper pile (Gen 2).
1. God is over man.
He commands and protects man.
Gen 2:15-17 v.15 The LORD God took the man and put him in the garden to work it and take care of it. v.16 And the LORD God commanded the man, "You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; v.17 but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat it you will surely die."

2. Man is over woman.
The man takes care of the woman.
Gen 2:23-24 v.23 The man said,
"This is now bone of my bones
and flesh of my flesh;
she shall be called 'woman',
for she was taken out of man"
v.24 For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.

3. People are over creation.
People do what they want with creation. And in the 'take care of the world' sense they also need to take care of it.
Gen 2:19 v.19 Now the LORD God had formed out of the ground all the beasts of the field and all the birds of the air. He brought them to the man to see what he would name them; and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name.

How it all got flipped (Gen 3).
1. Creation over woman.
The snake is creation. By telling the woman what to do it was going over her. 
Gen 3:4-5 v.4 "You will not surely die," the serpent said to the woman. v.5 "For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil."

2. Woman over man.
The woman ate the fruit. By telling her husband to eat it she was going over him.
Gen 3:6 v.6 When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desireble for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.

3. Man over God.
By eating the fruit in the first place, the man was disobeying God, thus, putting himself over him.
Gen 3:6 (read verse above) v.6 ... She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.
