Image of GOD
What is the image of GOD? Did Adam continued in the image of GOD which he was created? When could we build in the image of GOD and how? Who would be made in the image of GOD first?
Welcome Brethren to the 3rd day of the feast of tabernacle 2012, today I would like to expand on one of the characteristics of our LORD Jesus Christ….His Image. What is His Image?
In the beginning as in Gen 1:27 bible says man was created in the Image of GOD. But the time we come to the book of Revelation it shows that the majority of men have become beasts (2 Pet 2:12, Rev 13, 17, ) and the whole world is deceived by these beasts (Rev 19:20). At the same time CHRIST CREATED A FEW IN HIS IMAGE, AS THE FIRST FRUITS. What is GOD’s image? How could we acquire the same image? Who were made in GOD’s image first? Why did we fail to build the Image of GOD until now? We will prove that the only way to build the Image of GOD is to become a new person “in JESUS CHRIST ” and (not in God The Father) BELIEVE IN TO HIM, AND ABIDE IN HIS WORDS. If we want to build the Image of GOD, we must worship GOD in “Spirit and in truth”, and we must worship the GOD who Is THE SPIRIT AND the TRUTH (Joh 4:23)
If we want to build the Image of GOD, we must worship the GOD, who Is THE SPIRIT AND the TRUTH, or the ONE GOD !
We know GOD Is a Spirit. The Scripture below says, “JESUS CHRIST” Is that Spirit. He Is also the Truth, and Life”. If we are to have the Image of GOD, then we must worship this GOD who is the Spirit and Truth, with Spirit and Truth.
JESUS CHRIST said, that His people would not worship Him in Spirit and truth. Neither Israel could be born of Spirit, because; they worshiped the wrong GOD who was not the Spirit and did not have the full truth either. (The final falling way from the TRUTH is to happen in our days. So we know until now, no one has had the Spirit nor the truth) The churches of GOD, or the daughters of Jerusalem , or the wife of christ taught that we must worship the ‘Father” and He Is the Spirit. We will prove that the Spirit and the truth is JESUS CHRIST, and HE IS THE EVERLASTING FATHER as well. (And not the GOD the Father). Understanding the truth of … “which”… GOD.. is the Spirit and the truth, is the first step to build the Image of GOD. Because we have to become like Him. Until this is proven, no one in Israel (or whoever teaches that God The Father is the GOD whom we should worship JOh 8:54 ) will never be able to born of Spirit or build the Image of GOD.
JESUS CHRIST said… “except a man be born of water and Spirit”… (Joh 3:5- 6) they cannot enter the kingdom. What is ‘water”?? What is ‘Spirit”??
What if the Image of GOD is THE Spirit AND TRUTH? Then we should worship the GOD who is the Spirit and truth??? Could Israel build the Image of GOD??
Which GOD is the Spirit and truth ???
“the Lord is that Spirit”… 2 Cor 3: 14- 17.
“I AM the Truth”… (Joh 14: 6)
It is “JESUS CHRIST ”, who is that Spirit. (2 Cor 3: 14 – 17… Israel failed to understand that. ).
He Is also the TRUTH. Joh 14: 6
Would JESUS CHRIST accuse His people of NOT worshiping GOD in Spirit and truth if they really weren’t??? Then why don’t you believe Him?
2 Cor 3:… “their minds were blinded:…. which vail is done away in Christ. …, even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart…. when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away…., the Lord is the Spirit;… where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.”
Whose’ minds are blinded to NOT TO KNOW “JESUS CHRIST”? Their blindness is to be done away ‘IN CHRIST”. So the Laodicean era’s blindness has something to do with their belief in CHRIST. Obviously, they have NOT TURNED TO THE LORD WHO IS THE SPIRIT AND TRUTH. They are prophesied to stumble upon Him. If they want to be free, they must turn to JESUS CHRIST…
But this blindness is TEMPORARY. Now the time has come for them to turn to the LORD who is that Spirit and the blindness is to be removed. GOD said they will be given a NEW HEART. So you see… if Israel is to stumble upon JESUS CHRIST… and if they cannot be free or build the Image of GOD until they do so… don’t you think that you need to turn to JESUS CHRIST and not to God The Father??? Honestly answer… do you worship God The Father or JESUS CHRIST??? God The Father cannot give you gold or white clothes. Do not your leaders teach that God The Father is greater??? But by turning to JESUS CHRIST, we have built the Image of GOD. Then… prove all things and turn to the LORD who is the SPIRIT AND TRUTH to be set free…. If you are BLIND, (as all during the Laodicean era are blind)… then turn to JESUS CHRIST… He only can take your blindness away.
Now what is the “Spirit” which you need??? It is the ‘WORDS” that JESUS CHRIST speaks… (Joh 6: 63). IT IS ALSO THE WATER WHICH YOU NEED TO BE BORN OF as written above …. You must be baptized in the water, the Spirit and fire, which are the spoken words of JESUS CHRIST. Make sure you read these Scripture and prove the truth. If all Israel have failed to worship GOD in Spirit and truth as JESUS CHRIST said to the Samaritan woman in Joh 4, then, they need the Spirit and truth.
To build the Image of GOD in us, we need the mind of JESUS CHRIST as well. That is revealed in His words. With His words and mind, the Gentiles have already built on Him. (Eph 2). It is JESUS CHRIST’s mind which we should have also. (1 Co 2: 16). That mind teaches us all things which He wrote… or His words even the hidden things of spiritual secrets.
The ‘flesh’ profits nothing. (1Co_10:18 Behold Israel after the flesh) If one wants to build the Image of GOD, they should be born of Spirit, which are the words of JESUS CHRIST. This is why it is prophesied that in the ‘LAST DAYS” GOD will pour His Spirit upon all flesh. (In the end time, all are FLESH and not are Spirit) To do that, one needs to join to the LORD, who is that Spirit. It is JESUS CHRIST, who is that LORD we should be joined with. And it is the Gentiles who are JOINED to the LORD who is the Spirit. (Isa. 56). This is why when JESUS CHRIST comes the SECOND TIME; He comes to Gentiles as they seek Him. So He gave all the words to them as the waters cover the sea… (Isa. 11: 9 - 11). So the ‘words’ which are Spirit as JESUS CHRIST said in Joh 6: 63, are given to Gentiles. That includes all the deep spiritual secrets.
IF JESUS CHRIST, IS THE TRUTH AND SPIRIT, ……AND IF WE MUST WORSHIP GOD IN Spirit AND IN TRUTH, THEN WE MUST WORSHIP HIM in TRUTH AND THE Spirit. This was the failure of all Israel, even to this day. We who know this must pray to GOD to TURN their minds TO HIM FOR their BLINDED MINDS TO BE OPENED…!!!
The judgments are to give light. (Hos 6:5) Which means after the judgments, the truth will be given. ONE AND ONLY TRUE GOD, who is JESUS CHRIST, THE CREATOR, is preached in Rev 14: 6- 7. That is why during judgments this gospel is preached. Then only all will come to know Him. Every knee should bow to The Creator…. Israel will have their minds opened as the Tree of Life is offered after the exposure of the sin of unbelief . You have to get the words of GOD from those who are given. Isa. 11 clearly says, it is the Gentiles who seek Him when He comes the second time…!!! And that is the time CHRIST will redeem those who are scattered abroad.
To build the Image of GOD, first of all one must prove which GOD is the ONE TRUE GOD. Without knowing Him, how could we build His image??? Is it God The Father …. Or JESUS CHRIST?
JESUS CHRIST Is the Image of GOD….
Col 1:15 Who is the image of the “invisible” God, the firstborn of every creature: }}}…JESUS CHRIST, is the Image of GOD. What is His image??? Who has His image? How could we build that image?
“Image” means likeness, representation, resemblance, used of the moral likeness of renewed men to GOD…., the image of the Son of God, into which true Christians are transformed, is likeness not only to the heavenly body, but also to the most holy and blessed state of mind, which Christ possesses…, one in whom the likeness of any one is seen…., etc.
If He is the image of the INVISIBLE GOD… whom we can see…, then we should turn to Him to have His image, as it is the Image of GOD!
JESUS CHRIST, the “PHYSICAL” body, is the Image of GOD, of the ‘INVISIBLE” GOD…., who Is a Spirit. JESUS CHRIST, came as the BODY to appear on the earth. To this same image, the TRUE CHRISTIANS also will be transformed.
“firstborn of every creature:”…He Is the ‘first born’… How was He born?? By the “words” of GOD, according to the spoken words of GOD or written words. The words said a Son will be given… A Saviour is sent… He Is the Messiah, The Anointed… The CHRIST … the ‘SENT ONE”, who IS ALSO THE EVERLASTING FATHER ( Isa 9:6). The Word OR The CREATOR SPOKE THE WORDS AND ARE WRITTEN, … and it happened… He died and was resurrected… all happened according to the spoken words of GOD. Which GOD’s words are they? It is JESUS CHRIST’s own, while HE WAS THE SPIRIT… or the Invisible GOD…!!!
The first fruits also will be born of water the words… and all Israel also will be born of water, fire, Spirit which are the words of JESUS CHRIST…!!! Jas_1:18 Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.
JESUS CHRIST, is the Spirit. But how can we see that Spirit??? Through the ‘words’ of JESUS CHRIST, which are Spirit. Joh 6:63.
How can we know the ‘Truth” as we cannot see JESUS CHRIST who is the truth?? Through His “words” which is the truth. (Joh 17:17).
You see… when you turn to the LORD who is the Spirit… you will be set free… (2 Cor 3: 14- 17)…
And… when you know the LORD who is the ‘Truth”, also will set you free… (Joh 17: 17, 8: 32). Finally, it is JESUS CHRIST’s words which are Spirit and truth… which will set you free and give life. Without the words of JESUS CHRIST, no one can build the Image of GOD as we shall see.
Man should know he has the image of the beast first;….
Before the man builds the Image of GOD, he must know that they are beasts as they do not understand the truth or the Spirit… and then turn to the LORD who is the Spirit so they can be free and build the Image of GOD. GOD WANTS ALL TO KNOW THEY ARE BEASTS.
Ecc 3:18 I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts…..
Here is the same verse in GNB…
Ecc 3:18 I decided that God is testing us, to show us that we are no better than animals….. }}}…We must understand that without the truth , and the Holy Spirit or the mind of JESUS CHRIST, we are beasts and GOD wants us to know that first, and then turn to Him to learn the truth in order to build the Image of GOD in us.
Adam…, when disobeyed, he was cursed to be dust again. That is to die like a beast. Tree of Life which pictures the Truth and Holy Spirit was cut off from him. He died like a beast… and the rest followed. “For that which happens to the sons of men, and that which happens to beasts…”... (Ecc 3: 19). THEREFORE IF THE BEASTLY MEN WANTS TO BECOME GOD, THEY MUST HAVE THE Spirit AND THE TRUTH. THEN ONE CAN BE BORN AGAIN AND BE CREATED IN THE IMAGE OF GOD.
GOD sends evil as well to test people as the Scripture says…
Why did GOD allow all evils inside the Sanctuary, in His own temple? Why did JESUS CHRIST say that GOD’s house will be desolated? Why did He declared the last era as the evil generation? Because, the image of GOD, (as we shall prove,) is the ability to choose GOOD, from evil and He knew man cannot do that. To choose good, the man has to know BOTH GOOD AND EVIL. Otherwise, how could you choose good from evil? GOD Has to make the man know, that he is a beast and there is no life in himself and must depend on GOD’s mercy and grace to have Everlasting life. To build the Image of GOD…, GOD Had to show evil first and then show the good. For that purpose He chose the first fruits to be born as JESUS CHRIST was. So all others can follow them by learning from them later.
Image of GOD has the ability to choose good from evil….therefore, the man has to know the good and also the evil and then choose good. For this purpose the PHYSICAL had to be made known first.
Gen 3:5 for God knows that in the day you eat of it, even your eyes shall be opened, and you shall be as God, knowing good and evil….}}}… “as”... GOD… knowing good and evil. In Isa. 45, we saw, GOD sends good and evil. The whole Bible is full of man’s evilness. Remember it is GOD’s own GOODNESS AND MERCY which causes one even to repent??? (Rom 2:4) Besides, the two trees in Eden, is contrary to each other. One gives life… the other causes you to die.
Gen 3:22 And Jehovah God said, Behold! The man has become as one of us, to know good and evil. …}}}…The man became one as GOD, to know good and evil. But has he chosen good??
Gen 3:6 And the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and the tree was desirable to make one wise. And she took of its fruit and ate; and she also gave to her husband with her, and he ate. }}}… man judges according to the appearance or what he SEES... or whatever his body desires. He wants to be THE ONE… wise on his own way.
Gen 3:7 And the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked. …}}}… She saw… she wants to eat… and it looks good… but she did not know that what looks good is evil and against GOD. We must see SPIRITUALLY. The spiritual things we cannot see. It has to be REVEALED. She remembered what GOD said but still disobeyed. Instead of becoming as GOD, she became EVIL. (Adversary or enemy)The last era should be naked and be GOD’s enemy also as she has sinned. Rev 3, the message to the Laodiceans proves that she too is naked. Micah proves the wife turned as an enemy in the last end.
Only JESUS CHRIST can choose good from evil. ( Isa. 7: 15) .
Isa 7:15 He shall eat curds and honey until He knows to refuse the evil and choose the good. ….}}}… REFUSE….. REFUSE the evil and CHOOSE GOOD…. The devil did not tell Eve that she has to choose good from evil. He only told that you can become as GOD to “know” good and evil. When she disobeyed GOD, she became the adversary…. And ever since that, even to the last high priest, they have been the adversary of the LORD JESUS CHRIST.
Isa 7:16 For before the boy shall know to refuse the evil and choose the good,…}}}… this is one of the reason why JESUS CHRIST Had to come to the world. To show how to choose good. He obeyed the words…CHRIST said the ONE GOD IS GOOD.
Mat_19:17 And He said to him, Why do you call Me good? No one is good except One, God! )He always looked for the written words to fulfil and to quote. When the Jews confronted Him, always quoted the Scripture. (But we know now, it is His own words. )that is the Spirit and truth we need to build the image of GOD.
Since the man kind became adversary of GOD, HE cut off the knowledge about good or JESUS CHRIST. This is why GOD kept the knowledge about the MYSTERY OF GOD till after the judgments. The Tree of Life, and the MYSTERY OF GOD is revealed only in Rev 10: 7, and Rev 22. That is about the GOOD LORD, which gives one Everlasting life. GOD could not reveal Himself, until all evil is exposed and removed. Just as the truth has no parts with lies, the knowledge about JESUS CHRIST, which Is good, has no part with evil. Remember JESUS CHRIST said that ONE Is good… that is GOD?? Luke 18: 19.
Knowledge of the “written Word” needs to build the Image of GOD.
The three temptations of JESUS CHRIST proves that He could choose good. How did He overcome the lusts and temptations of the devil? By quoting the Scripture. So to build the Image of GOD, and to choose good, one must know the words of GOD. … This is why they need to be baptized in the sea of knowledge of GOD …. So they too can overcome the devil with the Word of GOD. those who were given the knowledge of GOD are therefore made in His image. ( Isa 11: 9 – 11 proves they are the Gentiles ).
Mat 4:4 But answering, He said, It has been written: "Man shall not live by bread alone, but on every Word going out of the mouth of God." …}}.. Why did JESUS CHRIST say this? What is every “WORD”? … The words are Spirit and Truth which gives life as written above. The “Word’ is JESUS CHRIST… and Spirit and Truth also Him. It is through Him, that we are to live by. “Every Word” means ‘words’. That is the Spirit, the Father as PROVEN.
Young men, because ye have overcome the wicked one. I write unto you, little children, because ye have known the “Father”. …we know now the ‘Father’ is CHRIST’s own words which also sent Him.
Young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one. ( 1 John 2: 13- 14). …}}}… the little children overcame as they know the ‘Father ’. We proved that ‘Father’ means JESUS CHRIST’s own words. (If you read John 16:25, you will see that the word ‘Father’ is a proverb which will be revealed only now.) So the little children, who are the Gentiles as PROVEN, have the Word of GOD in them… (Father) and that caused them also to overcome the wicked one.
We need to have the same mind of JESUS CHRIST… otherwise how could we overcome or choose good from evil?
Unless you have the mind of JESUS CHRIST, no one can build that image. That mind is given to Gentiles, as Jews rejected Him. (1 Co 2: 16). We are to have ONE mind… ONE FAITH and ONE Spirit. (Php 1:27). Can you claim that you have the mind of CHRIST?
Know the LORD through His words
To know the true GOD, we need to KNOW the TRUE GOD and His words. GOD made Prophet Samuel also to know Him through the Word of GOD. This is the same way, GOD made Himself known to Gentiles as well. When JESUS CHRIST gave His mind to us, then He opened our minds to see His name and KNOW Him.
1Sa 3:7 And Samuel did not yet know Jehovah, and the Word of Jehovah had not yet been revealed to him.
1Sa 3:21 And Jehovah again appeared in Shiloh. For Jehovah revealed Himself to Samuel in Shiloh, by the Word of Jehovah. …}}} … GOD revealed HIMSELF… by HIS Word… this is the same way, GOD reveals HIMSELF to us now as well. Not only about Him, but about all things which are written and which are to be fulfilled. Therefore, when JESUS CHRIST says, the proverb about the ‘Father ’ will be revealed in that day, it will be revealed through the words of GOD…, in that day and not before. The day which GOD’s Word shows when the MYSTERY OF GOD will be revealed is; during the judgments in Rev 10: 7. That is the time JESUS CHRIST came to Gentiles as Col 1: 27 says, to reveal all the secrets. Then, only JESUS CHRIST’s identity also will be revealed. How can you build the Image of GOD not knowing JESUS CHRIST through the words?
Col 1:26 the mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints. }}}… when the book of Colossians is to be fulfilled, during the last era of the church, the mystery of GOD is revealed. At this time, JESUS CHRIST Has already separated the saints and the wicked and evil generation. Then it is to the Gentiles, who are the saints who will know this mystery which has been hidden all these years.
Col 1:27 For to them God would make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory, }}}… CHRIST, IS IN THEM… THE Gentiles) giving all knowledge… this is the second time JESUS CHRIST comes to give the knowledge as the sea…Isa. 11. Gentiles are prophesied to seek Him … and He gives the words to them…He brings justice and judgment to us… He Is greater than the temples… and we have GOD living in us…then we should have the image of GOD !!!
Col 3:4 Whenever Christ our life is revealed, then also you will be revealed with Him in glory. }}}… when JESUS CHRIST is revealed, when the truth about GODHEAD, or the truth about JESUS CHRIST, (that He IS THE ONE AND ONLY TRUE GOD,) is revealed, we who are the saints who have JESUS CHRIST in them, also will be revealed.
Now see who will be working with JESUS CHRIST when He comes the second time… LET THE WORDS OF GOD REVEAL IT….
Isa 11:9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea. …}}}… The FULL KNOWLEDGE OF THE ‘LORD’ is given when He comes the second time. Who are called to GOD’s Holy MOUNTAIN? (Isa. 56). The Gentiles.
Isa 11:10 And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious. …}}}… the earth is given the full knowledge of the LORD, when JESUS CHRIST comes the second time. This is why in Heb 1:2 that He comes to teach in the last days. (Hos 6:3 He comes as the rain). And who would be with Him??? And it is the ‘Gentiles’ who seek Him. and it is called the ‘rest’. Entering in to the REST means one has believed JESUS CHRIST THE LORD and the works are finished.
Isa 11:11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set His hand again the second time to recover the remnant of His people..}}}… When He comes the second time… the people will rest… at that time, and it is the Gentiles who will seek Him. Even in the first century, it is the Gentiles who sought Him after Jews rejected Him ( Act 28:28). This is why all seven eras are prophesied to FAIL or FALL. Their failure is also written to the seven Gentile churches. That is also why the New Testament is written in ‘Greek’. And He came to give the full knowledge during the Laodicean era … as Col 1: 27 says. “Christ in you”…that is when they were built in the image of GOD.
What is the knowledge which one needs to have Everlasting life???
Joh 17:1 Jesus spoke these things and lifted up His eyes to Heaven, and said, Father, the hour has come. Glorify Your Son, that Your Son may also glorify…. You,}}}… “GLORIFY” means to KNOW AND UNDERSTAND GOD. (Jer 9: 24). There is a definite time which He calls “THE HOUR” to know and understand about GODHEAD. That is when JESUS CHRIST comes the second time. And as written above, it is the Gentiles who would be revealed about the NAME and KNOW Him. When would GOD be glorified?
Joh 13:30 Then, receiving the morsel, he immediately went out. And it was night.
Joh 13:31 Then when he had gone out, Jesus said, Now the Son of Man was glorified, and God was glorified in Him.
Joh 13:32 If God was glorified in Him, God also will glorify Him in Himself, and immediately will glorify Him.
Joh 13:33 Little children …}}}… it was “NIGHT”… the PROPHESIED NIGHT… is when the Laodicean era is in darkness as PROVEN. This is why JESUS CHRIST comes as a thief IN THE NIGHT…. and it is the Gentiles who are with Him in the night. They work when JESUS CHRIST was betrayed again, by the last high priest. THAT IS WHEN GOD WILL BE GLORIFIED OR MADE KNOWN... OR UNDERSTOOD. That is when the night watchers are made in the Image of GOD. When JESUS CHRIST comes the second time to Gentiles, Israel is in darkness.
Joh 17:3 And this is everlasting life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom You have sent. }}}… ONLY TRUE GOD. GOD Is the Spirit. JESUS CHRIST is the physical image as written above. There is a definite time to glorify the Son of GOD). …This is the knowledge which we need to have Everlasting life or to have the Image of GOD. Or to become children of GOD… Without first knowing the ONLY true GOD, no one can have His image.
There are TWO images in GOD’s people when the book of revelation is to be fulfilled, which are the "Times of Gentiles", being the "Day of The Lord”. Some have GOD’s image, and name written on their foreheads, the other , the beasts and the harlot, who is JESUS CHRIST’s wife who turned as an enemy in the last end, has the name of the beast written on them. She always has been a harlot, and she never knew GOD nor understood Him. That is why she sat on beasts… remember a beast is a man without understanding. So GOD Has blinded the minds of Israel … and then they are WITHOUT UNDERSTANDING… and are beasts.
When you know and understand Him, you are ready to have Everlasting life.
1Ti 2:4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. }}}… to be SAVED, we need the truth… that is JESUS CHRIST Being the ONE AND ONLY TRUE GOD … Please prove to yourself, why did JESUS CHRIST write all these saving truth to Gentiles ?? Why did He give these mysteries to Apostle Paul, to write to Gentiles if it does not have an end time fulfilment by the Gentiles?? Does not the prophecy say that there is a time called the "Times of Gentiles”??? Rev 11: 2- 3, Eze 30: 3, and many more…
Even the repentance comes from the full knowledge of truth. Without which no one can build the Image of GOD.
2Ti 2:25 in meekness teaching those who have opposed, if perhaps God may give them repentance for a full knowledge of the truth …}}}… All men would be saved, when they come to have the full knowledge of the truth. The full knowledge is given only when JESUS CHRIST came to Gentiles as PROVEN above… the knowledge shall cover as the sea. Gentiles are the sea which comes to you… (Isa. 60) And when you learn the full knowledge of the truth, then GOD will forgive you and cause you to repent of not believing. (They did not believe JESUS CHRIST and that is what they should repent of).
After JESUS CHRIST came to Gentiles, they were made perfect in knowledge. Then, they are to warn every man…and they present every man full grown in CHRIST.
Col 1:28, whom we announce, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man full-grown in Christ Jesus,}}}… Until JESUS CHRIST came to Gentiles and saved them by forgiving them and giving them the truth, no one could be presented to JESUS CHRIST. THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN Jews AND Gentiles IS THE Gentiles BELIEVED JESUS CHRIST.. We announce every man… we teach every man the wisdom of GOD…SO THEY CAN BE PRESENTED FULL GROWN IN CHRIST.!! remember at this time, the wisdom of the wise has perished. !!!
How could you become one with GOD ??? You must join to the LORD who is that Spirit, who is JESUS CHRIST. Then only you can build the Image of GOD in you to choose good from evil.
1Co 6:16 … know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.
1Co 6:17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit. }}}… GOD says, the church has always been a harlot. All seven eras was a harlot as Rev 17- 18 says.
But… the LORD says; The Gentiles have joined to the LORD. (Isa. 56:3). So THEY HAVE BECOME ONE!!! As all Israel failed to join to the LORD that is JESUS CHRIST, their minds were blinded to not to know Him, but to stumble upon Him. They are prophesied to not to build upon JESUS CHRIST, the Chief Cornerstone. So how could they build the Image of GOD??
Gentiles became JESUS CHRIST’s own flesh and bones…THAT IS HIS BODY. THEN THEY ARE MADE IN THE IMAGE OF GOD…
Gen 2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
Eph 5:30 For we are members of His body, of His flesh, and of His bones.
Eph 5:31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
Eph 5:32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. …}}}… Since we are joined to the LORD, He considers us as His own flesh and bones. Is there a greater mystery than this??? The Gentiles, as they JOINED to the LORD….; ALMIGHTY GOD THINKS AND DECLARES THE Gentiles ARE HIS OWN FLESH AND BONES!!!!!!!
If we are His flesh and bones, then don’t you think that we have built the Image of GOD….???
Adam’s and Eve’s marriage was done by GOD to show the marriage of JESUS CHRIST and the church. So who left the Father and the mother? It is the Gentiles… and they are joined to the LORD… and have become one Spirit as written above. They only can call JESUS CHRIST …..”MY LORD”… as Sarah called her husband!
How does JESUS CHRIST marry the church?? BY HIS ‘WORDS”
Eph 5:26 That He might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
Eph 5:27 That he might present it to Himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. …}}}… Is there a Father who does anything to present the church to her Husband??? It is CHRIST’s words, and His will to wash the church by His words and present it to HIMSELF. The Scripture is the written Word of GOD. The full knowledge has to be given for all to be cleansed. Unless the full knowledge is given, as written above, no one can repent even as they do not know what to repent of. Does Israel know that they have rejected JESUS CHRIST and HE IS THE ONLY GOD? No. This is why Israel have to repent, and be baptized in water, fire and Spirit. They need to be baptized in the sea of knowledge. The water, fire and the Spirit are the words of JESUS CHRIST. Mal 3 says, He comes to purify the ministry. This is how they will be purified… by the Word … and as written above, Israel need to be cleansed also.
Rom 6: 3- 4… we are baptized in to CHRIST, also to His death. We are buried with Him, and raised and we walk in newness of life… those who BELIEVED are saved (Rom 10:9). The exceeding greatness of His power is given to us, who BELIEVE… (Eph 1: 19, 1 Thes 2: 13).
Col 2:13 And you, being dead in the deviations and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all the deviations, ..}}}… CHRIST cannot come to a person unless he is justified. (Rom 8:29-30). HE MADE US …. ALIVE…TOGETHER WITH HIM. These are JESUS CHRIST’s own words. IF WE ARE ALIVE WITH HIM, THEN WE ARE MADE IN HIS IMAGE.
HE MADE US …. ALIVE…TOGETHER WITH HIM!!!
HE MADE US …. ALIVE…TOGETHER WITH HIM!!!
How could one be alive with JESUS CHRIST, as humans? We have the Image of GOD… He said who believes in Him shall not die… Joh 11: 26.
Eph 2:15 Having abolished in His flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in Himself of twain one new man, so making peace; }}}…To have the Image of GOD, one’s enmity has to be removed. That is done only by JESUS CHRIST. This is why the Gentiles who DO NOT HAVE THE Law was easy to be made new as they do not go after the Law, but have faith in JESUS CHRIST to do what they cannot do. GOD Has made it easy to have His Image of GOD through JESUS CHRIST. Those who have the Law are powerless as they cannot overcome. (Rom 8). JESUS CHRIST condemns the sin in the flesh. Rom 8:3-9.
Abide in the words to be ONE with GOD…
We become one with the Father and Son “By abiding in the words”. JESUS CHRIST’s words abide in Him, and we abide in His words. (Joh 15: 3- 8). This is how we can glorify the Father, and the Son. V 8 says if we abide in His ‘words’, the “Father” is glorified. Because, as PROVEN, the ‘Father’ means the words. Glorify means to know and understand,… so we come to know and understand the Father , through JESUS CHRIST’s words.
When we become ONE with GOD, He wants the world...( Jews) to know that, so they may believe at that time, the truth about the Word ‘Father ’ and how JESUS CHRIST came to be. When the spiritual Jews see us that we are one with JESUS CHRIST, then they will know the Father as well.
Joh 17:21 that all may be one, as You are in Me, Father, and I in You, that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. …. }}}…How could the Father Be in the Son? Does the Father’s Spirit come upon the Son? Father, or the ‘words’ abide in the Son and this is the same way, the Father, Son and the believers are to be ONE (by abiding in the words)
Joh 17:22 And I have given them the glory which You have given Me, that they may be one, as We are One:
Joh 17:23 I in them, and You in Me, that they may be perfected in one; and that the world may know that You sent Me and loved them, even as You loved Me. }}}… “ONE with GOD”… JESUS CHRIST is saying that some will be ONE WITH Him, before the world. The ‘world’ here is the spiritual Israel, as PROVEN. They are the vessels of WRATH, while the Gentiles are made the Vessels of Mercy. The world, who are “within the Law” who needs to be JUDGED in Rom 3: 19, is spiritual Israel, who are in Egypt spiritually, having the last high priest as a man of sin, Joshua, the antichrist etc….( The Law was given to Israel. Psa 78: 5).
“Perfected in ONE WITH JESUS CHRIST”…. That is the Image of GOD. This was not fulfilled until after the judgments when the Tree of Life is once again offered.
“I in them”… When would JESUS CHRIST be IN SOME BODY??? It is during the Laodicean era, but HE WILL BE IN THE Gentiles… “Christ in you”… (Colos 1: 27). The Gentiles, are to be one with JESUS CHRIST, and are to be perfected given the full knowledge, as it is written….
“even as You loved Me”…}}}… GOD planned to have mercy and love the Gentiles even before the beginning…, (2 Thes 2:13) before they did anything. Just as He chose Jacob over Esau which we know the story…
“I have given them the glory…, that they may be one, as We are One”….}}}… what is this ‘glory”??? It is to know and understand the GODHEAD… (Jer 9: 24)… While the Jews are called the “beasts” (without understanding), the Gentiles are given the knowledge about GOD and they understand the truth.
When they become ONE with the GOD Who makes them one, and then JESUS CHRIST calls them His ‘brethren”…
Heb 2:11 For both He that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause He is not ashamed to call them brethren …}}}… ‘Brethren’ in this verse should mean… ‘Christians who are exalted to the same heavenly place”.
Who sanctifies??? It is JESUS CHRIST. Who are sanctified (2 The 2: 13), it is the Gentiles. They are ONE… And this verse further proves that.
To build the image of GOD, one should fulfill the Law…
Unless one fulfils the Law, cannot build the Image of GOD….
The Gentiles fulfilled the Law as they believed in JESUS CHRIST… and because of their love towards GOD and others…
Gal 5:14 For the whole Law is fulfilled in one word, in this: "You shall love your neighbour as yourself."…. we proved that the Gentiles fulfilled the whole Law, by their love towards GOD and neighbour.
We must have Grace and Truth also
To build the Image of GOD, just as JESUS CHRIST had Grace and truth, one should also have.
Joh 1:14 And the Word became flesh and tabernacle among us. And we beheld His glory, glory as of an only begotten from the Father, full of grace and of truth. …}}}. Because, He brings grace and truth. v 17. And the Gentiles have heard and KNEW grace and truth. (Colos 1:6.) This is why we have built the Image of GOD in us and why JESUS CHRIST came to us as v 27 says. This means we have His image. The elect lady to whom Apostle John wrote his second epistle, and the third, also have grace and truth. 2 John 1: 1- 4,
But Israel not wanting to hear JESUS CHRIST, are blinded…
2Co 4:4 in whom the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving ones, so that the light of the glorious gospel of Christ (who is the image of God) should not dawn on them. …. }}}… if any one does not abide in the doctrine of CHRIST, does not have GOD … they transgress. (2 John 1: 9). Israel do not know the gospel of CHRIST which shows the Image of GOD…
The Gentiles are to have the Image of GOD first by Grace???
Rom 9:11 for the children not yet being born, nor having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of the One calling, }}}…”born” means “to procreate…, fig. to regenerate…, to be born, make, in a Jewish sense, of one who brings others over to his way of life, to convert someone…, of God making men His sons through faith in Christ’s work”. …In the same manner of choosing Jacob the younger, GOD Has chosen the Gentiles to make them in His image first through His MERCY. (v 15 – 28), This is the time, when GOD’s MERCY IS POURED, GOD will do a short work… bringing all things to END. (V 28). Then, v 30 says, the Gentiles have ATTAINED TO THE RIGHTEOUSNESS through FAITH… and Israel …. Has NOT. This explains that the short work will be done by the Gentiles. As they have faith, and have attained to Righteousness, they have built the Image of GOD.
The purpose of GOD, is according to the ELECTION”… those who are elected, called NOT BY THE WORKS, but by His purpose. They are the children of GOD…
Election” means; the act of picking out, choosing
1a) of the act of God’s free will by which before the foundation of the world he decreed His blessings to certain persons
1b) the decree made from choice by which He determined to bless certain persons through Christ by grace alone
2) a thing or person chosen
2a) of persons: God’s elect….
Rom 9:23 and that He make known the riches of His glory on vessels of “mercy” which He before prepared for glory,
Rom 9:24 whom He also called, not only us, of Jews, but also out of Gentiles.
Rom 9:25 As also He says in Hosea, I will call those Not My people, My people! And those not beloved, Beloved! Hosea 2:23
Rom 9:26 “And it shall be, in the place where it was said to them, You are not My people, there they will be called, "Sons of the Living God.”}}}…IF THEY ARE SONS OF GOD, THEN THEY SHOULD HAVE HIS IMAGE. The riches of HIS “GLORY”… “GLORY”… This is why JESUS CHRIST prayed in Joh 17… V 10 “I am glorified in them.” … then, they are ONE… (v 11).
In Joh 17, JESUS CHRIST prayed that the believers will be kept from evil. That means they are appointed to be good. They are sanctified by the truth. The truth would prove who are His people who have built the Image of GOD…
The only way to have the Image of GOD is through JESUS CHRIST… this is why the Gentiles have the Image of GOD first.
If we could build the Image of GOD by ourselves, there is no need for JESUS CHRIST to come the second time. Besides it is when He gives the true knowledge…. as Isa. 11 says. That shows that we needed more knowledge when He comes, as the leaders who try to attain to their own righteousness by keeping the Law could not build the Image of GOD.
2Co 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new….}}}… Everyone becomes NEW in JESUS CHRIST… as that is the only way to depart from evil and unrighteousness. (2 Ti 2:19).
If any man be ‘IN CHRIST ”…becomes a NEW creature….not in God The Father. Israel, to this day exalts the Father. This is why, to renew them, they need a NEW heart… they need to hear NEW things. That is; they become new man “In JESUS CHRIST”.
Rejection of JESUS CHRIST, the true GOD began in Eden…
2Co 11:3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. …}}}… the serpent beguiled Eve”…. In believing the …. Simplicity that is in CHRIST” …. So the deception which began in Eden, is compared to the deception about the knowledge about JESUS CHRIST….This is why JESUS CHRIST said to the Jews, that they are the sons of the devil, as they did not believe Him. …. After JESUS CHRIST comes the second time, He would destroy the words of the devil, and then he cannot beguile anyone in the manner of Eden and this is why only after the judgments, the Tree of Life IS OFFERED…
See how the Gentiles became new in JESUS CHRIST…;
Rom 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to those in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to flesh, but according to Spirit. }}}… those who BELIEVE IN JESUS CHRIST… are walking in the “Spirit’…. SO ALL Israel MUST LEARN THESE.. they are justified by His mercy… the Vessels of Mercy. This is why the Gentiles could be saved first. We have no condemnation. But the ministry of Israel, who are called the ministry of death (2 Co 3:7), is condemned… because, THEY PREACH ABOUT God The Father, according to the traditions of the fathers. The first step to build the Image of GOD is to believe in JESUS CHRIST…. this Scripture proves another fact; that all Israel are condemned BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT IN CHRIST …!!!
This means if we are not in JESUS CHRIST, we are condemned. Do you see why the Jews who do not believe in JESUS CHRIST are condemned????
Your SINS WILL BE FORGIVEN ONLY IN JESUS CHRIST. Then only you can become a new creature. This is why JESUS CHRIST called the ministry of the Spirit, new covenant, and reconciliation and justified them for this purpose. (Rom 8: 29-30).
Rom 8:2 For the Law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus set me free from the law of sin and of death. }}}… In JESUS CHRIST, we are made free. So Israel, as they are NOT IN CHRIST, still are not free from sin and death. This is the truth which sets all free.
Gal 5: 1- 4 says, we are set free by JESUS CHRIST… and the wanting to keep the Law, separates one from the grace of JESUS CHRIST, which alone can save any one. This is how the Gentiles, who did not have the Law, are set free by JESUS CHRIST…
Image of GOD is built during the judgment when salvation comes…
Understand… that the salvation comes only in the judgment. That is the time all will be given the truth to build the Image of GOD. Until all called out ones are proven, exposed and corrected by the Scripture, GOD would not make Himself known to man. Also, one builds the Image of GOD, not because of our righteousness, but through the belief and by the blood of the Lamb. Would JESUS CHRIST choose any in Israel who are under the Law and need to be judged to give salvation first…??
Rev 12:10 And I heard a great voice saying in Heaven, ….“Now”… has come the salvation and power and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of His Christ, because the accuser of our brothers is thrown down, the one accusing them before our God day and night. …}}}… when is this ‘NOW”??? It is when the accuser is thrown down. When was he thrown down?? Only in “JUDGMENT”… (Joh 12: 31- 32… and Zion is cast down with him as Lam 2: 1 says) and then only, as v 32 says, JESUS CHRIST will be lifted up….
Joh 12:31 Now is the judgment of this world; now the ruler of this world shall be cast out.
Joh 12:32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, I will draw all to Myself. …}}}… “NOW” means during the judgment … when the ruler is cast down, (Zion too) only….. then only, JESUS CHRIST will be lifted up… and then …. It is not God The Father, but JESUS CHRIST will draw all to HIMSELF. !!! So you see... the judgments have to come for all to be drawn in to JESUS CHRIST…!! THEN ONLY ONE CAN BE BUILT IN TO THE IMAGE OF GOD, …
Remember… if you do not gather to JESUS CHRIST, scatters, (Mat 12; 30) and this is why all tribes are scattered as Jam 1 says.
Gentiles are forgiven, complete in “JESUS CHRIST”.
Col 2:6 Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, walk in Him,}}}… We have already received JESUS CHRIST, during the Laodicean era because that is the time, GOD divided the sheep and the goats… and we are rooted and built up in Him… v 7.
Col 2:10 And ye are complete in him….who is the Head of all rule and authority…}}}… JESUS CHRIST, is the HEAD of ALL RULE AND AUTHORITY…. . We are made complete in JESUS CHRIST… We have to make Zion understand that JESUS CHRIST is THE HEAD… in ALL RULE AND AUTHORITY…!!! Understanding this truth made us complete. The kingdoms became the LORD JESUS CHRIST’s during the "Times of Gentiles"…
Col 2:12 Buried with Him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with Him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead. ,,,; }}}… “operation of GOD” means a strong working by GOD. Buried in baptism”… Buried means “G4916
This means the Gentiles, DIED and are raised with JESUS CHRIST… not in the physical baptism, but by the ‘OPERATION” of GOD, or the strong working by GOD, and through FAITH, they are raised up having the full knowledge.
“Col 2:13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses…}}}…”Dead in your sins”… even when we are dead spiritually, because of our sins… giving the full knowledge of the truth, GOD made us to be alive. This is the same way Israel too will be raised to life. They too died lacking the knowledge even they are CIRCUMCISED. Our UNcircumcision is nothing for JESUS CHRIST’s mercy and grace. Could the CIRCUMCISION in flesh save themselves or build the Image of GOD ??? So when the full truth is given, after admitting and repenting, by the grace of GOD, all are forgiven and made to be alive.
The only way to build the Image of GOD is to become a new person “in JESUS CHRIST ” and (not in God The Father) BELIEVE IN TO HIM, AND ABIDE IN HIS WORDS. If we want to build the Image of GOD, we must worship GOD in “Spirit and in truth”, and worship the “GOD who Is” THE SPIRIT AND the TRUTH !
Worship the “GOD” who Is the SPIRIT AND TRUTH!!!
