CREATED TO BE LIKE GOD
Dr. Kluane Spake
We are MADE in His Image.
“Let us make humanity in our Image and Likeness.”
Behind the simple narrative of creation that has caused many religions to develop superstitious and confusing ideas, stands the incredible revelation that is hard to even believe —
HUMANS ARE CREATED TO BE LIKE GOD.
We read the Creation story to be about how physical creation occurred, but somehow it just doesn’t seem to answer all our questions. We look at numbers, names, places, and dimensions to be clues to understanding why God created us.
Maybe we could begin to see the intention of the Lord at Creation still stands. He has never changed His mind. The purpose for humans is still about Likeness and Image… RIGHT NOW!
The Promised One overcomes the Fall. If we eat of the Tree of LIFE (Jesus), we live (Gen. 2:17). To him who overcomes, I will grant to eat of the tree of life which is in the Paradise of God (Rev. 2:7).
Jesus was not just “another” Jewish prophet. He alone is the Messiah, Who came to fulfill God’s intention. Jesus came as the Last Adam bore the LIKENESS and Image of God.
Today, Jesus gives us the ability to become as He is. Here is one of the most remarkable Scriptures of all “We will know Him when we see Him because we will look just like Him” (1 Jn. 3:2).
Jesus gave us the HOLY SPIRIT to be our Guide. it’s not about knowing about the Holy Spirit doctrinally – it’s not about experiencing His reality on a hit-and-run basis… or perceiving the spirit impersonally as an expression of God’s power. But, it is about experiencing the LIFE-giving Holy Spirit continuously as YOUR personal Guide and Counselor.
Recognize the Holy Spirit as being personally present in your LIFE.
The quest of the Holy Spirit is to guide you into LIFE and Likeness and Image! Now you can pray with a lifted awareness and purpose to walk into God’s intention. Allow inspiration to arise.
Hear the “click” in your spirit! The Spirit of life is the LIFE-GIVING SPIRIT. The Holy Spirit guides and leads you into freedom without condemnation. “There is now no condemnation for the believer in Christ because of the saving work which sets us free from the condemning law of Sin and Death” (Rom. 8:1).
The Holy Spirit can do what the law could never do. His very presence in your life can bring you into the defeat of the power of sin in your life.
The manifestation of the sons of God – all creation awaits this revealing of Christ to come forth in a people – fulfilled and accomplished. It is heaven and earth IN US.
Believe that living your life here on earth is an art of discovering and delivering LIFE.
