And I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people. Hebrews 8.10.

What is God after in the universe? In Genesis 2 we learn that after God had created man, He merely hinted that man should exercise his free will to choose God's life. This passage did not openly state what God desired to get in the universe. In another passage, Genesis 3, we learn that man fell into sin, but again, this passage does not uncover what the devil wished to steal away. Things remained veiled, until the day when God in proclaiming the Ten Commandments began to spell out His heart desire.

The first of the Ten Commandments is: "Thou shalt have no other gods before me." The second is: "Thou shalt not make unto thee a graven image, . . . thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them; for I Jehovah thy God am a jealous God . . ." The third commandment is: "Thou shalt not take the name of Jehovah thy God in vain . . ." And the fourth is: "Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy" (Ex. 20.3-8). These four commandments reveal the heart desire of God. It is none else than that God desires to be God. God is God, and He wants to be God among men.
