How The Image of God in Man Was Destroyed by Sin picked the interest of many friends once i brought up the topic, thank God for the spirit of understanding
The bible in genesis said man was made in the image and likeness of God.
This was true and perfect,
But Adam’s fall in sin had long completely destroyed that state of made, it never existed again.
So what happens when you are born again?
Yes, your spirit is saved when you are born again and can access God, BUT HAS NOT GOTTEN BACK THAT IMAGE.
Adam in Eden before he fell in sin was thinking just like God. After sin, no more image of God, no more thinking like God. MAN COMPLETELY LOST THAT IMAGE. This is How The Image of God in Man Was Destroyed by Sin
THAT image can be assumed here on earth, I do not know whether it can be 100%. I know it would be 100% after rapture, but it is absolutely possible to be achieve that 100% on earth because with God all things are possible.
How The Image of God in Man Was Destroyed by Sin; What is holiness?
There is no amount of prayer that can give you that image, no amount of worship, no. I cannot say no amount of holiness because the only meaning of holiness I know is TO THINK LIKE GOD.
But we have completely missed what is holiness all this years. Holiness is not trying to act like God, talk like God, put on godly dressing.
LOOK, THINKING LIKE GOD CONTROLS AND DEFINES EVERYTHING ABOUT YOU, IT WILL DEFINE YOUR ATTITUDE, YOUR CHARACTER, YOUR MODE, YOUR MOTIVE, YOUR LIFE, YOUR CHOICE, YOUR WORDS.
This is why I say we major on the minor and minor the major.
We try to correct our words, check our character, attitude, we try not to be negative, AND RATHER NEGLECT ON WORKING ON THE WAY WE THINK.
YOUR WORDS ARE WHAT YOU THINK, YOUR CHARACTER IS WHAT YOU THINK, YOUR MOTIVE IS WHAT YOU THINK, YOUR DRESSING IS WHAT YOU THINK, YOUR WORDS ARE WHAT YOU THINK, YOUR LIFE IS WHAT YOU THINK, EVEN YOUR GOD IS WHAT YOU THINK, BECAUSE YOU WORSHIP WHAT YOU THINK YOU SHOULD WORSHIP. SO YOUR VERY LIFE IS A PRODUCT OF YOUR THOUGHTS
Jesus left the earth, the Jesus you know left the earth. The Jesus you know, according to you is a person that came died for you, resurrected after 3 days, went to the father.
So that Jesus had left the earth, no more, he said he had to go. Jesus said, it is expedient that I go away. So he actually left.
But he also said, nevertheless, I am always with you and will be with you till the ends of the earth.
Please note, there is different between your
- spirit being saved
- Jesus living in your heart
- and Jesus saying ; I WILL BE WITH YOU ALWAYS.
- Salvation simply mean your spirit is saved, meaning that spirit is qualified to be with God, access God, and has potential to enjoy all of God. It also mean you are now of God, born of God.
But this does not mean you are like God. Your spirit being saved did not automatically make you to think like God, hence you cannot be like God automatically after salvation. If you cannot be like God automatically after salvation, it means you are not the image of God yet.
Image is likeness, likeness simply means you can do what God can do.
Please there is nothing like assumption in God, confession is good, but if you confess till eternity and do not do the works of faith, you will forever achieve nothing.
WHAT IS CONFESSION?
Confession is simply pronouncing what you already believe, you do not confess what you do not have knowledge of and believe
out of the abundance of the heart is what the mouth speak
We assume to work by faith many times but we do not know what faith is.
Faith is the word of God, and acquiring faith means acquiring the knowledge and understanding of the word by revelation.
Anything you do by this knowledge does not fail, if it fails; the knowledge was not enough to create the corresponding faith.
B) There is another form of Jesus that many people are not aware, not too conscious of. You might have read about this form of Jesus in john 1, but it never really made any meaning because, to you, that is not the form that saves. For some people, Jesus had left that form, he is no more assuming that form.
At least, he changed from that form to become flesh, so there is no way he would have gone back to assume the form.
Turn Men messages are being inspired by the Holy Spirit. If you spend time to meditate and pray on these messages, you will be empowered by the flood of light from God that will heal, restore anything lost and most importantly build your spirit to dominate the world as a son.
In case you are not born of God yet, you cannot reject Jesus. You were created by Jesus for Jesus. God created you for himself. To reject Jesus is to rebel against God. Jesus is your life, to reject Jesus is to reject your life. Give your life to Jesus today; repent, accept Jesus into your heart as your lord and savior and be born of God now, it may be late after now!!!!! Do not postpone. Please follow this steps to obey God now.
