Something To Think About:
THE INVISIBLE GOD
When God said let Us make man in Our Image—The “let us make” is Qal and is imperfect. Imperfect means, and I use a partial quote: Used to describe a single (as opposed to a repeated) action in the past; the imperfect adds color and movement by suggesting the “process” preliminary to its completion. God already had in Mind to create beings that possessed His heart, mind, and emotions, The shell containing these attributes had nothing to do with the image on the outside only the composition of what makes God, God..
Scripture tells us our Awesome, Wonderful, Wise, Creator God is Spirit that was not seen.
John 1:18 No man has seen God at any time; Jesus declared Him and made All His attributes known.
Colossians 1:15 Jesus is the image of the invisible God, the Firstborn of every creature:.
I Timothy 1:17 Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.
INVISIBLE ATTRIBUTES OF AN INVISIBLE GOD MADE MANIFEST IN BODILY FORM. WHAT FORM?
Male and female were bodily made to Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it. Again, the inner being, the heart, mind and emotions were God’s. Bodily a man was made stronger to provide and protect. A woman was made with muscles to produce and nurture. Most men are one tracked to conquer and most women are multi-tracked to conquer without using as much bodily strength.
Genesis 1:27 So God created man in HIS own image, in the image of God created HE him; male and female created he them.
Genesis 5:2 Male and female created HE them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.
and let them have dominion over . . .
(The above Scriptures also repudiate the statement that only males were made in God’s Image. More thoughts on that later)
In the New Testament Peter brings more light to it when he tells the woman not to try to use their beauty or accessories to win their husbands to Christ but let it be the hidden “man” of the heart, that is “incorruptible” which is God’s image in them, a peaceful spirit. IT IS NOT THE BODY BUT THE GOD IMAGE INNER BEING THAT CHANGES US AND THOSE AROUND US. This Scripture applies to male and female that God called “Man” or ‘Adam”
