Are we God’s?
Since the beginning of time man has lived under a lie in which, through unbalance thinking, has thought of himself as God. As a result of these special men having mental problems and unbalance thinking, millions of people have suffered and lost the lives.
We are created beings:
In the very beginning, it was God Almighty through his great love who created man and through His divine Spirit gave man a living soul. “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” Gen. 2:7 KJV
If we hold that the Bible is the true living inspired word of God, then we must accept this passage as being true in understanding our creation. Just because God created us and gave us his life giving Spirit and brought us into existence, thus his spirit lives in us, this fact does not make us gods?
The first Great Lie:
“Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.” Gen. 3:1-5 KJV
Since this lie first came about in the Garden of Eden, in the history of man we find this same lie being, believed, practice and retaught over and over the down through the centuries and generations of man history. In Genesis, we read the story of the tower of Babel which men believed if they built a building high enough to reach heaven they would be equal with God and be like him.
In the ancient world we know of the following people, leaders, kings who thought of themselves as being god on earth, such as: The Pharaohs, Japaneses Emperor, Chinese Emperors, Roman Emperors, Gnostic, Natchez Rules, the Sailendros, Maharajah kings, Dala Lames, Inca Emperors, Nepalese Kings.
George Washington, Lili Zamenhat, Jose Rizal, John Nicholson, Jiddu Krishnanusti, Haile Seassie, Taher Seifadkin, Sathya Sai Boba, Yahweh Ben Yahweh, Mitruo Matayasliu, Meher Baba, Mita, Jim Jones, Nimala Srivostava, Franciseo Macius Nguenia, Apolla Quiboloy, Joseph Kong.
When you study the teachings of various occult and new age thinkers, believe of them selves as being gods because the Spirit of God lives in all human beings. In the circle of Wicca (witches) which is accepted today as a religion of nature, these people practice magic and believe they are gods. In reality nothing can be more from the truth.
It has been promised by God that after Judgment day when we enter into our reward and our glory with him who died for our sins and our body will become changed unto the likeness of Jesus body giving us immortality. Just because we receive immortality from God once we are with him in heaven does and will not make us gods.
Let us all keep a levels head and keep our minds and thinking in a balance that we always know who we really are, human beings and not gods.
