How Adam & Eve Reflect God's Kingdom!
"Let us make man in our image." Such
a Scripture does not support the trinity, but it does
support the plain truth that the Word was God and the
Word was with God, two Beings with the
one sacred name of God/Elohim (John 1:1-2). "In
the Beginning was the WORD (Logos/Spokesman/Revelatory
Thought), and the Word was with God, and the
Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God."
This clearly reveals, to objective readers, TWO Beings
who shared the ONE family name of GOD. (Ephes. 3:15).
God created all things through Yeshua/Jesus who was
the Word (Ephes. 3:9).
When the Word became flesh He was "God with us" and
thereby became the "Son" and the One who remained in
Heaven thereby became the "Father." They had coexisted
eternally in a SHARED GLORY (John 8:42, 7:5,
8, 16:27-28). We can either accept or reject Yeshua's
revelation of the UNKNOWN FATHER FIGURE whom
mankind has never heard or seen. The Word who became
Yeshua is the God-Being who dealt with ancient Israel.
They didn't know the Father and most still don't
today, and they can't unless the Son reveals
Him (John 5:37, 6:44,46, 8:54-55).
And we can either accept or reject Yeshua's explanation/interpretation
of what "one" means: unity/united. He said the Father
was in Him and He was in the Father (through the Holy
Spirit and unity of mind and purpose) and He prayed
for the Church of God to express and exhibit that exact
same unity and oneness by the Holy Spirit
(John 14:11, 15:4, 17:11, 21, 23). Please check out
these Scripture references and see that it is
so. One Holy Spirit of UNITY AND DIVINE PURPOSE (I Cor.
The Scripture says "Let us make man in our
image," and it says "ELOHIM (not YHVH) made man in His
image." It's saying the Word and God made man "in OUR
image" and, that as ONE GOD FAMILY UNIT/KINGDOM, the
united God made man in HIS image. It elaborates, for
our sakes, by also saying Elohim created MAN in His
image...MALE and FEMALE created He THEM" (Gen. 1:27).
So there's a reverse of the singular and the plural,
man/them and our/His. This "mystery" is
further revealed when it's written in Gen. 5:1-2: "In
the day that Elohim (Gods) created man, in the likeness
of God made He HIM; male and female created he them;
and blessed them, and called their name ADAM."
The ONE ADAM FAMILY then had a son, Seth, in "his
(Adam's) own likeness, after his image" (Gen. 5:3).
Does this exclude Eve? Wasn't Seth also in her human
likeness and image? Yes. For conclusive proof
that God PURPOSELY inserted all this into the Genesis
account to REVEAL to us later about the ONE GOD FAMILY/KINGDOM,
the apostle Paul preaches: "For we [Christians] are
members of his [Yeshua's] Body, of his flesh, and of
his bones. For this cause shall a man leave his father
and mother, and shall be joined to his wife,
and they TWO shall be ONE FLESH. This is a GREAT MYSTERY:
but I speak concerning Christ and the Church" (Ephes.
That's how the ONE GOD FAMILY (Elohim with the Father
Supreme and the Son gladly subject to His authority
- 1 Cor. 15:28) can be and is presently composed of
two God-Beings, and is in the conversion process
of "bringing MANY SONS TO GLORY" (Heb. 2:10) since Christ
was the "FIRSTBORN OF MANY BRETHREN" (Rom. 8:29).
Jesus was the PROTOTYPE of a new genus: the Kingdom
It's illustrated that even as MANKIND has shared in
Adam's earthy image, we're soon to share in the HEAVENLY
image of the Second Adam when we're born again of the
Holy Spirit (John 3:3,6 4:24), with righteous character
and composition! Mankind after the Godkind! And all
through the ONE SPIRIT of God that unites us.
"Christ in you, the hope of glory" (Colossians
1:27), "who shall change our vile body that it may be
FASHIONED/CREATED like unto His GLORIOUS BODY" (Philip.
3:21), "for we know that when He shall appear, WE SHALL
BE LIKE HIM" (1 John 3:2) - we are not going to be dogs
or cats, or even angels, we are to be heavenly beings,
HOLY SPIRIT-COMPOSED, born
again GOD-BEINGS in the one divine family unit/Elohim!
We are presently members of MANkind, huMAN, in the
ADAMic Family unit (Gen. 5:2), but God promises we'll
soon be changed in the twinkling of an eye, miraculously
transformed, and join the HEAVENLY SPIRIT/GOD
We've clearly seen how "two" can be "one" whether
in the God Family or in the Adam family. It's right
there in the Bible if we'll just believe what we see
and read. It's the plain truth of the Bible for those
willing to believe what God has revealed.
Those who reject the testimony of the Scriptures (to
hang on to vain traditions of men, whether trinity or
oneness) are unable to explain what we're to become.
Why have we received the down payment/earnest of the
Spirit? (Ephes. 1:13-14). What conversion process are
we in? (2 Cor.3:18). What are we being converted to
if not into the character and composition of the Holy
God is spirit. We must be born again of the
SPIRIT. Yeshua is the FIRSTBORN of many brethren (Rom.
8:29). We're presently partakers of the DIVINE nature
(2 Pet. 1:4). God is our Father, Yeshua is our elder
Brother - a family relationship. We're in Adam's
human/earthy image now; we're to be in the Second Adam's
spiritual/heavenly/divine image soon.
God is reproducing Himself! That's what the
conversion process is all about: God became man
so man could become God. Mankind was created after the
Godkind so after a life of conversion and purification,
we can be resurrected to GLORY and share the glory of
the Father and Son as born-again sons of God (Elohim).
Again, what are we to become? How can you strive to
enter God's Kingdom, the Kingdom of Gods (Elohim), leaving
the human kingdom behind, if you refuse to accept the
awesome potential God (Elohim) offers? Take receiving
the Holy Spirit and being born again of the Holy Spirit
to its logical/biblical end/fulfillment.
When we're glorified God-Beings,
worshipping our Supreme Father God in His Kingdom (I
Cor. 15:28), just like Yeshua will submit to the Father
as all in all, we'll be immortal Priest-Kings (Rev.
5:10, 20:6), and God will be the "God of Gods" (Ps.
97:7, 136:2). Christ is the King of Kings (we're those
kings), and the Lord of Lords (we're those lords), and
the Father is God of Gods (we're those Gods/Elohim)
- (Micah 4:5).
We either accept Yeshua's revelation of the UNKNOWN
FATHER and His eternal coexistence with Him, and His
work as Creator, as the Word, under the supervision
of the Father, or we must reject the New Testament.
The Jews know Yeshua's claims and don't water them
down to fit their religion. They reject His revelation
for now, like most of traditional Christianity,
but both Houses of Israel (Anglo-Saxons, Western Europeans
and Jews as taught by Brit-Am
Israel) will get over this stumbling block and soon
embrace our transcendent calling to become literal
members of the Heavenly Family of Gods (Elohim), higher
than the animals and angels (Heb. 2:9-10).
We don't call God the Father for nothing, or do we?
We're to be the literal children of God, the
Children of the Resurrection (Luke 20:36).
