What has The Word of GOD revealed to us of GOD'S
Eternal Power and Godhead through the creation of man?

Through The Eternal Power of GOD'S Word, The LORD Testified to the vessel Moses, and revealed to him What HE said to HIS Son when HE shared with Him HIS Will to make man. The Word Testified of The Father, WHO said to Him, "...Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth" (Genesis 1:26). This is the plan that GOD outlined for the creation of man by The Eternal Power of HIS Word, that man might reveal The Image of GOD to all, and have dominion over all the earth, Just as GOD has dominion over all the heavens. But having been cast out of heaven, the adversary with his angels sought for a place to establish his kingdom to fight against The Kingdom of GOD and overcome The Authority of HIS Word, whom he hated with violence.

When The Father sent HIS Word of Authority to speak HIS Will to Lucifer, The Word of GOD said to him, "By thy great wisdom [and] by thy traffick hast thou increased thy riches, and thine heart is lifted up because of thy riches: Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou hast set thine heart as the heart of God; Behold, therefore I will bring strangers upon thee, the terrible of the nations: and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of thy wisdom, and they shall defile thy brightness. They shall bring thee down to the pit, and thou shalt die the deaths of [them that are] slain in the midst of the seas. Wilt thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, I [am] God? but thou [shalt be] a man, and no God, in the hand of him that slayeth thee. Wilt thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, I [am] God? but thou [shalt be] a man, and no God, in the hand of him that slayeth thee. Thou shalt die the deaths of the uncircumcised by the hand of strangers: for I have spoken [it], saith the Lord GOD" (Ezekiel 28:5-10).

Notice The Prophetic Promise of GOD'S Word to the heart of Lucifer, in which HE--The Father with The Word of HIS Authority will bring strangers upon him. The LORD did not say by HIS Word that HE will bring a stranger against him. No; The LORD by HIS Word said strangers. And these strangers will draw their swords to fight against the beauty of the adversary's wisdom. They--the strangers will defile the adversary's brightness, and will bring him down to the pit to die the death of the slain in the midst of the seas. It has been the adversary's position that if he could overcome these strangers, who would come against him with The Sword of GOD'S Power, then by overcoming the strangers with The Authority of GOD'S Word and GOD HIMSELF, then he will reign with his power over all. And this was his plan against GOD and HIS Word of Authority. But he did not know The Hidden Power of GOD'S Authority in HIS Word.

When GOD by HIS Word made man in HIS Image, The Word of The LORD revealed to Moses how by Him "...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" (Genesis 2:7).

The Light and Life of GOD'S Word is breathed into the empty vessels
of men, to reveal GOD'S Image, Glory and Power to all.

If we are to repent and reflect The Image of GOD before Christ returns again, to receive us as His Own, then we need to know and reflect The Same Image GOD has revealed to us through HIS Word. But how do we do this? Whose Image do we present and reflect back to HIM at Christ coming? Should it be (A)--your view, and Image of GOD? Should it be (B)--the view and Image presented by the church? Should it be (C)--my view and Image of GOD? Or should it be (D)--the view and Image GOD has revealed to man outlined by The Authority of HIS Word? The Image GOD would be looking for at the return of Christ is The Same Image HE has revealed in Man, Which is outlined by HIS Word in HIS creation of man. If we do not reflect the Image GOD has created us to reveal of HIMSELF, then would we recognized HIM as our GOD at the coming of Christ? If we do not know HIS Image, because it is said to be a Mystery, could we say we are made in His Image after His Likeness, to reflect What HE has revealed of HIMSELF by HIS Word in us? And would GOD say by HIS Word, "...unto Zion, Thou [art] my people" (Isaiah 51:16).

When GOD by HIS Word called Moses up on Mount Sinai, to receive from HIS Word--The Covenant of Life to man; and Moses had delayed to return unto them, he testified of the sin that the children of Israel did in the sight of The LORD their GOD. The children of Israel wanted to worship GOD. But since they could not see HIM, they created an image to worship HIM based on the images seen by the Pagans in Egypt. Moses said, "...I turned and came down from the mount, and the mount burned with fire: and the two tables of the covenant [were] in my two hands. And I looked, and, behold, ye had sinned against the LORD your God, [and] had made you a molten calf: ye had turned aside quickly out of the way which the LORD had commanded you. And I took the two tables, and cast them out of my two hands, and brake them before your eyes. And I fell down before the LORD, as at the first, forty days and forty nights: I did neither eat bread, nor drink water, because of all your sins which ye sinned, in doing wickedly in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger" (Deuteronomy 9:15-18). As we look for the return of Christ, and at His apparent delay; have we done the same thing as the children of Israel, to sin in the sight of The LORD our GOD, by creating an image to worship and serve, which does not reflect The Image HE has revealed of Himself in the creation of man?

Although The Image of GOD is said to be a Mystery, by so many leaders within the church; yet, because of their understanding of the Image of GOD, many within the church have constructed an image of compromise to fit the understanding they have accepted, which is said to be a Mystery. The question that must be answered in our hearts is this, Was GOD pleased with the image of the molten calf, which represented HIS Image to the children of Israel? And would HE be pleased today with the image of compromise, which does not reflect HIM according to HIS Word?

The Word of GOD has said to us through His vessel Paul, saying, "...that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed [it] unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, [even] his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse. Because that, when they knew God, they glorified [him] not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen." (Romans 1:19,25).

Notice that GOD has clearly revealed The Truth of HIS Eternal Power and Godhead in the things HE has created by HIS Word, that through the things created by Him, HE might reveal HIS Glory to all, and that all, who seek to know HIM would be without excuse of not knowing The Truth HE has manifest in man of HIMSELF. Yet, the enemy has caused many to become vain, (ineffective, unproductive, unsuccessful, and hopeless) in their imaginations, and have caused their hearts to be darkened to The Truth revealed of GOD in all of creation. Why? The Word revealed through Paul that those, who were professing to be wise, they became fools by changing The Glory of The Uncorruptible God into an image shaped and made by the compromise of men, whose hearts became corrupt, because they changed The Truth of GOD'S Eternal Power and Godhead into a lie, to worship and serve the creature, which they created in their imagination, rather than The Creator, WHO made them for HIS Glory. Like the children of Israel, who worshipped and served the molten calf in the wilderness, many are today worshipping and serving an image created in the minds of men, which is difficult to tear down, because the enemy have protected this image by the use of the name Mystery. But GOD has revealed that HE has given all Power unto HIS Son, and has said to Him, "See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant" (Jeremiah 1:10).

It is He--The Word and Authority of GOD'S Judgment, Who gives Power in men, who fight in the battle at HIS Side against the adversary of GOD'S Word of Authority. The Word of GOD said to His disciples, (the strangers), "He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me. And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name. And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven" (Luke 10:16-20).

GOD'S Word of Power is breathed into His willing disciples,
to Speak in His Name The Word of Power against even devils.

Through the vessel Moses, The Faithful Witness of GOD spoke and revealed The Truth of HIS Glory to the children of Israel, to pass on The Truth of HIS Glory to each generation until HIS Word of Power reached our hearts today. He said to Moses, "...God created man in his [own] image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them" (Genesis 1:27). (Note that the word "own" within the brackets was added by the translators of the Bible, to make sense in the way they understood the texts, but it was not need.) For The Father did not say to HIS Son, "Let ME make man", or "I will let you make man". No; HE said, "Let Us make man", not in MY IMAGE, or in Your Image, but "in Our Image, after Our likeness". The question we need to have answered is this; What Image was GOD revealing when HE said to HIS Son, "Let Us make man in Our Image, after Our likeness"?

To help us to get a clear view of The Image that was revealed by GOD through the creation of man, we must apply GOD'S principles of seeing The Invisible Things of GOD by faith, which says, "Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen" (Hebrews 11:1). In other words, if it is our desire to see clearly The Things that are not seen of GOD, then we must perceive The Invisible Things of GOD through the things of substance, which HE has made, to draw our focus through the evidence seen, to reveal The Things not seen of HIS Glory; Which is the reason why many are spiritually blind to The Things of GOD, and They are Mysterious to their understanding. For of The Things of GOD, Paul said, "While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal" (2 Corinthians 4:18).

BY the principles of faith, we look not at the things that are seen,
but at The Things, which are not seen through the things that are seen.

           

What would men need to change in the image of GOD'S creation of man,
in order to keep the wrong image men have perceived of GOD?

When we look to perceive The Image of GOD through the creation of man--male and female, we see The True Image of GOD, WHO created all things through and by HIS Son, Who is The Word of GOD, and The Eternal Judgment and Power of GOD'S Authority to all created beings. Through Him GOD created firstly, the man named Adam, and He performed the first human surgical procedure, to take a rib from the side of Adam, and make secondly, the woman named Eve. The LORD GOD spoke by HIS Word of Authority through Adam to testify through him and establish a principle pattern for man to follow in doing HIS Will. By Adam The Word of The LORD spoke and said, "This [is] now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh" (Genesis 2:23,24). Then, as we catch on to the principles of faith in GOD'S Word, we see through the first Adam to understand What The Second Adam was saying, when, The Father said through Him, "...Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and [of] the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit" (John 3:5-8).

We have all been born of the flesh of Adam, including Eve, who was formed from a rib out of the side of his flesh, to be his helper and companion. But in order to be born of The SPIRIT, The Father has said of HIS Word through His vessel John, saying, "He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, [even] to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God" (John 1:10-13). He also revealed by His vessel John, and said, "My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any [man] pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave [them] me, is greater than all; and no [man] is able to pluck [them] out of my Father's hand. I and [my] Father are one" (John 10:27-30).

All, who believe and receive HIS Word, they have received
HIS Word of Power to be born of GOD through HIS Word.

Notice that from The Testimony of The Word of GOD, The Father is GREATER than The Son, because He--The Son came out from The Father, and was sent of The Father to all, who will hear HIS Voice. And The Son is Greater than man, because The Father has created man in The Image of God by HIS Son. And The Man, who is given dominion over all the earth, would rule also over the woman, because she was taken out of man, and her desire would be to her husband. And having a desire to follow after The Voice of GOD, Who is sent to lead men back to GOD; the vessel Paul testified of The Word of GOD, Who spoke HIS Voice through him and said, "Be ye followers of me, even as I also [am] of Christ. Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered [them] to you. But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman [is] the man; and the head of Christ [is] God" (1 Corinthians 11:1-3).

All, who follow after GOD, to reflect HIS Glory,
He, or She will give Honor and Glory to His, or Her Head.

Behold and Notice the sayings of The LORD by His vessel Paul, Who spoke by The Word of GOD, WHO reveals The Truth of HIS Word to His church, or to those, who will believe on HIS Name, to follow HIS Voice out of darkness into The Light of HIS Word. For The Word of Authority has revealed through Paul that it is important to maintain the ordinances that He has given to him. Why? Because The Truth of The Godhead is faithfully preserved and revealed in the ordinances given of GOD to all, who will receive HIS Word of Truth to follow HIS Voice back to HIS Side. For through Paul, The LORD has revealed by HIS Word What HE would have every nation to know of....

The True Image of The Godhead
The Head of every man is Christ. And
The Head of the woman is the man.
And The HEAD of Christ is GOD.

From the Image of The Godhead presented in these words, it would appear that "the woman" and "the man" written in the text is focusing our attention back to Adam and Eve at creation; but The Word of The LORD did not say "the head of woman is man". He said, "the head of the woman is the man". And to preserve The Truth all down through history to us today, Paul wrote to Timothy and gave to him The Key of GOD'S Word of Authority to unlock The Truth of HIS Sword, to break the cover of darkness on The Image of The Godhead. He said, "I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, [and] giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and [for] all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this [is] good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. For [there is] one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time" (1 Timothy 2:1-6).

It is GOD'S Will that all men be saved,
and come unto The Knowledge of The Truth of
"The ONE GOD and The One Mediator between GOD and men
The man Christ Jesus
Who gave himself a ransom for all."

To understand What GOD was saying by HIS Prophetic Promise, of HIS Sword of HIS Authority to Lucifer, The Word of The LORD said to His disciples--His Bride, who desire after Him, Who said, "Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven. (Luke 10:21-24). HIS Promise is given to all, who believe on HIS Word of Authority. Being filled with HIS Spirit in his vessel, Paul testified and said, "...I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power. Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; And to make all [men] see what [is] the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:

"To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly [places] might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God, According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord. In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him. Wherefore I desire that ye faint not at my tribulations for you, which is your glory. For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what [is] the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him [be] glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen" (Ephesians 3:7-21).

We are complete in Christ, Who is One with,
The Father, WHO is GLORIFIED by Him in us--His Bride.

Notice that it is The Father, WHO works in the church by Christ Jesus, to make known HIS Son, of Whom the whole family in heaven and earth is Named. Those who follow the will of God to glorify HIS Word in them to reflect HIS Son to men; Jesus--The Son of God said, "I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father" (John 16:28). He also said, "...I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and [to] my God, and your God" (John 20:17). As vessels for The Word of GOD, to proclame The Father's Will from HIS Heart, through our hearts, to seek and to save the lost...

The question we must address in our hearts
How many will choose to leave with Him to be at HIS Side
in The Light of HIS Glory for Eternity?

we are called to fulfill HIS Command by HIS Word of Authority in us, to work as ONE with HIM in accomplishing The commission given to us of GOD, to "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son,
and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, [even] unto the end of the world. Amen" (Matthew 28:19,20).
For The Word of Authority said, "I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world" (John 9:4,5).

If we are to work with The LORD in fulfilling His commission to overcome the power of darkness in the hearts of men, who have sided with the adversary by believing the wrong image of GOD, then we must believe What The Father has revealed by HIS Word in His Bride and Companion of vessels for HIS Word. For through John, who testified of HIS Word of Authority, The Word said, "...This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent" (John 6:29). And "Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform [it] until the day of Jesus Christ" (Philippians 1:6). "Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of [this] calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of [his] goodness, and the work of faith with power: That the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ" (2 Thessalonians 1:11,12).
