What is man?
Man without God is the most wicked creature on earth. In Genesis chapter 2, the bible talks about how God created man using Adam as an example. Genesis 1:24-31, talks about the things God created on the sixth (6th) day including man. The bible says after God has formed man out of the dust, God breathed into his nostrils the breathe of life. We all know God is a spirit and if He God has now breathed into the man that He has formed out of dust to become a living being, that means the life that is now in man is also spirit since that life is coming from God who is a spirit. From all that you've read now, I am sure you now understand why Jesus said in John 10 the verse 30 that, "I and my Father are one." This is because, though we all see Jesus as man, He believes the breathe in Him is from God and therefore He is God. When the people wanted to stone Jesus because they don't see the reason why a man should make himself equal with God. Somewhere in the book of Philippians 2 from the verse 5 to 8, the bible explains why Jesus humbled Himself.
By now, we all should know that man in the first place is a spirit from God, he then has a soul (what makes him feel pain, joy, etc.) and lives in a body (house, container, also temple). All these tell us why our body is the temple of God.
1 John 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. 8 And there are three that bear witness in earth, the spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.
The bible says in Psalm 82 that, God standeth in the congregation of the mighty, and judges among the gods. Here you can see that man is seen as mighty and not only that, but also god, since man is a spirit from God.
In Hebrews 12:9, the bible says, God is the father of spirits. Spirits therefore needs earthly bodies in other to operate or function on this earth. Again, since man is a spirit that is why the bible urges man to worship God in spirit and in truth, since it is only your spirit being that can commune with God all because God is a spirit.
I want you as a reader to have this behind your mind that it is not always that when we say God we are referring to the Almighty God. This is because the Lord Jesus Christ made mention of Satan as the Prince of this world. So when you say God, it is either you are referring to Jesus Christ or Lucifer (Satan). From today, know the God you serve.
Thanks a lot for reading this piece and don't forget to follow and also share. Bless you.
