Image Of God

Spread the love

We are the images of God, when God created us, he created us in his is own image

and he make us have dominion over the earth, over the fish of the sea,

the fowl of the air and over all creeping things

in the earth and he loves us a lot among all the things he has created. God loves us so much

that he made us in his own image that is why we need to love him back, when you

love someone you will never want to offend that person, you will try your best to keep

the person happy, that is what we ought to do for God, because he created us and he

use every thing to satisfy us, look at how God deliver the Israelite out of the hand of

the hands of Egypt, God fought for them and the Egyptians they saw they see them no

more, if God stand for you, you don’t have any reason to disobey him, God can never

turn his back on who he loves and he will always be with them through out their trials,

He will always be there to help them fight their battle, but God also want us to love

him back because if we use love that God has for us for granted we will reap the

repercussion, for example: when Tyrus sent whole captivity to Edom without

remembering brotherly covenant, God because of this he will send three

transgressions to Tyrus and the fourth on is that he won’t withdraw the punishment,

and send fire to the wall of Tyrus to devour the palace, In 1 Samuel 3 (KJV). When

Samuel was born his mother vow that he will always be with God all his life

and it was so, when Samuel was sleeping and

God called him three times but he thought that he was his father that is calling him but it wasn’t him,

the father realized that God is calling Samuel and he told him that any time he hear

the voice again he should say speak for his servant is listening, and God told Samuel

that he will do something powerful in Israel, that he will act against Eli, God told

Samuel that he will judge his house iniquity forever, because his son, Hophni and

Phinehas made themselves vile, and he didn’t restrained them and because of that

he has sworn that the iniquity of Eli’s house will never be purged with offering or

sacrifice, and when Samuel woke up he told his father And he said that since is God

let him do what he seems is right, and 1 Samuel 4 (KJV). Israel had a big battle with

the Philistines and Eli’s Sons Hophni and Phinehas and Philistines slew four thousand

men of the Israelites and they were so scared that they all went to the temple of God

to fetch the ark of the covenant and they all became happy but on the day of the

battle the Philistines still slew them and no one returned including Eli’s two sons

Hophni and Phinehas, now Eli was ninety’ eight years old and his eyes were dim, that

he could not see, and a man said to him that he fled from the battle on the day of the

battle, and Eli said where is my son? And the man told him

that the Philistines slew all the men there and his sons are dead and the ark of God is taken, when he mentioned

the ark of God, Eli fell backward off his chair by the side of the gate,his neck was

broken and he died, for he was an old man, and he was heavy, he had led Israel forty

years, as I said earlier if we take God for granted we will always see the repercussion,

God loves Israel and he fought for them but when they disobey God they all reap the

repercussion of it, the Bible says in Joshua 5:6: For the children of Israel walked forty

years in the wilderness, till all the people that were men of war, which came out of

Egypt, were consumed, because they obeyed not the voice of the LORD: unto whom

the LORD sware that he would not shew them the land, which the LORD sware unto

their fathers that he would give us, a land that floweth with milk and honey (KJV).

We need to obey God because he is our creator, he mould us in his own image, we are

the image of God so we should live by him and we should fear him if God said we

should not sin like drinking alcohol, adultery, fornication, gambling, killing, stealing,

gay, lesbians, lies, betraying, and many more of them, and food that he has forbidden us to eat,

all these things that God said we should not do,

it is for our own good, obedience is better than sacrifice, many sacrifice that we are

doing is of no use. The Bible says in Proverbs 1:5-7 A wise man will hear, and will

increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels: To

understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark

sayings. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise

wisdom and instruction (KJV). We are the images of God so Let’s fear the Lord, he

loves us lets us love him back, hate sins and he despises unrighteousness,

as I said earlier he created us in his own image, we are the image of God so let’s us

live in his image, let us love what God love and despise what God despises, what is

the profit of a person that gains the whole world and lose his own soul, remember

that God knows you before you were created, he knows your beginning and he also

knows your end, he gave you a soul and he can also take it back, and after death, he

will still be the one that will judge us, so why can’t we obey God, serve him and live in his own will.

I pray these pray Into your life:

1. The power to overcome flesh shall overwhelm you in Jesus mighty name.

2. Anointing to heal from the wound of flesh fall on you in Jesus” name.

3. The grace to obey and fear God shall fall on you in Jesus’ name Amen
