GOD MADE US IN HIS IMAGE
I know that what I write will make some of you wonder.
God does things in order and we know this by how He had them to write the Bible. It is all written in order.
God spoke the world into being. He spoke light into firmament of the heavens to divide day and night for signs and seasons and for days and years.
God made the spirit man first in His thoughts in heaven, and then He formed man’s body out of the dust.
Therefore, when you read in 1 Corinthians 15:46, where it says man came first and then the spiritual man, it is referring to the order of the earthly man. Then with His breath, He gave us the breath of life.
Everyone has breath that lives and everyone has a spiritual life that lives inside of him or her. You know this, because the Bible states that we all have a measure of faith and faith is spiritual. Romans 12:3
The Bible does not give us an image of God but it does tell us that God created man in His own image. Genesis 1:27
As you read throughout the Bible, it states that God is Love, God is light, and God is faithful.
Therefore, the formed body that God formed is not the image of God.
If it were true then we would know what God looks like but the Bible tells us no one has seen God and no one knows what He looks like. John 1:18
God created the spiritual man in His image. That is why in Matthew 19 Jesus tell the Pharisees, “He who made them at the beginning made them male and female,” and said, “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” “So then, they are no longer two but one flesh.” How can this be if Jesus is not talking about the spiritual man?
God made us in His image. Therefore, the spirit man that God created before He formed the body. That spirit man is like Him.
We do not know how much time past between the time God created man and when He formed the body.
This is where most believers get the wrong understanding. We do not know what a day is in God’s time.
Preachers speak as if it is in our time, a twenty-four hour day, that is not true. A day can be as quick as a blink of an eye or as long as a thousand years-in God’s timing.
The point I am making is that we were kings (gods) of this earth, not the God in heaven, but a god of this earth. This is why God himself gave us dominion over things on this earth.
Adam and Eve fell from grace and when Jesus came He restored us back to grace.
Now look at yourself as a believer being a god of this earth, now you must understand what Jesus was saying when He said, “I assure you, even if you had faith as small as a mustard seed you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible.” Matthew 17:20
