God made us to have His physical, mental, and spiritual nature. How did we get where we are at.
As sin entered into the world through our forefathers we lost our physical, mental, and spiritual nature of God. But God did not leave us there. God had a solution for our dilemma. The earth has to be reinstated to the kingdom of God.
John 1:1–5 NKJV
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
The Word has always existed. The Word is God. He was part of creation. He was the spoken and it became to existence. The Word is the light of all men. The light came to us who are in darkness and we did not understand it.
John 1:6–13 NKJV
There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
John 1:6-13
There are many in this world that want to be god’s but there is only one God and the human form of God is Jesus Christ. Many people in Christ time thought that John was the Christ but he was just the one to lead people to the light of the world which is Jesus Christ. On the other hand, Christ has called us to be the new John’s of the world that will guide people to Christ and His second coming. Interestingly, the same way that they did not receive Jesus when He came the first time. Many will not receive Him now. Now if you receive Jesus and acknowledge Him as your creator then He starts the restoration process and calls you once again His children. To become His children when need to be born again not of blood, nor of the flesh, nor of any many, but we need to be born again by God.
John 1:14–18 NKJV
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. John bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, “This was He of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me is preferred before me, for He was before me.’ ” And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace. For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him.
John 1:14
God the Word, the light of the world; became flesh. In God’s wisdom the plan of redemption for His fallen creatures was to go down into earth and redeem the fallen world. Start a process of re-installation. Jesus left all the glory of heaven and came into our filthy world to redeem me, you, us. God became human because the creator is the only one that can redeem its creation. God’s image needed to be reinstated in the world. The light needed to be relight in the world. Jesus came to this earth to restore the image of His Father here on earth. Through that process we are redeemed. He then calls us to stand and become His children and be the image of God in this world. God calls us to be part of the process of restoration of His world to the original plan that He has created in creation. Would you want to be part of this process.
We can start by asking God to give us His spiritual nature and that He will
To be called His children and become His image once again is only possible by recreating us in His image. Longing to have His spiritual, mental, and physical being. What sin took from us can be given to us again only through Christ. We need to die to our natural self and ask Jesus Christ natural self to live in us. I need to ask God daily for His Spirit to live in me daily. I need to ask God daily that His mental nature to live in me daily. God has promised us to return our physical nature of God in us when He comes to take us to heaven and then return to this earth to see how He created this earth in the beginning. I want to be there don’t you?
