Human Destiny!

Have you given much thought to Human Destiny? Have you thought about your OWN destiny?

Human Destiny might be quite hard for you to believe, however, you don't have to take my word for it. Just study the subject for yourself and you will see what incredible destiny mankind has available. This is something that very few people in the world know or believe, yet it is absolutely true.

Traditional religion has always taught that God is trying to save people's souls so they can go to heaven. If you ask others what exactly this really means for us as individuals, you rarely receive a satisfactory answer. This is because most people don't know what it really means let alone have they really proven it is actually what happens. It is religious "tradition" passed down from generation to generation.

What does the Bible really say about mankind's destiny? The plain facts tell us that God is doing nothing short of building a family of like beings that will exist on the same plane of existence as God Himself. In other words, God is reproducing His nature and eternal existence through us. Sound incredible? It IS incredible. Let's take a look at the flow of this incredible revelation and allow Christ Himself to tell us this truth. Once you have reviewed the following scriptures, you will plainly see the truth.

    Genesis 1:26-27 "Then God said, Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth. 27 So God created man in His [own] image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them." (NKJV throughout)

God plainly states here that they, the Father and Someone Else, (a href="trinity.html">NOT the "Trinity") created mankind in THEIR image and likeness.

    Genesis 5:1-2 "This is the book of the genealogy of Adam. In the day that God created man, He made him in the likeness of God. 2 He created them male and female, and blessed them and called them Mankind in the day they were created."

    Numbers 12:8 "I speak with him face to face, Even plainly, and not in dark sayings; And he sees the form of the LORD."

    FORM= 08544 t@muwnah {tem-oo-naw'} used as likeness 5 times, similitude 4 times, image 1 time:

    1) form, image, likeness, representation, semblance.

God claims to have an actual form and shape. This can be verified in the following incomplete list of scriptures:

    Back parts: Exodus 33:23.
    Eyes: Amos 9:8.
    Ears: Isaiah 5:9, 59:1, James 5:4.
    Nose: Job 4:9, Isaiah 65:5.
    Mouth: Isaiah 1:20, Micah 4:4, Matthew 4:4, Job 40:9.
    Voice: Exodus 19:19.
    Face: Genesis 19:13, 1 Samuel 26:20.
    Arms and hands: Job 40:9, Psalms 44:3, 77:15, 89:10+21, 136:12, Jeremiah 21:5.
    Finger: Exodus 8:19, 31:18, Deut. 9:10, Luke 11:20.
    Feet: Nahum 1:3, Zechariah 14:4, Revelation 1:15-16.
    Inward parts: Isaiah 16:11.

Seems like a lot of wasted words to describe God if God doesn't really have any of the features mentioned, doesn't it? Why would God describe Himself in man's image if He did not have any of these features?

    Matthew 18:10 "Take heed that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that in heaven their angels always see the face of My Father who is in heaven."

    John 5:37 "And the Father Himself, who sent Me, has testified of Me. You have neither heard His voice at any time, nor seen His form."

Christ here indicates that God has a voice and shape. We also understand that Christ is the son of God, and was raised a spirit being and given the same position and glory He previously had with the Father before he came to this earth:

    John 17:5 "And now, O Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was." (See John 1:1-14)

    1 Corinthians 15:45 "And so it is written, The first man Adam became a living being. The last Adam (Christ) [became] a life-giving spirit."

Jesus Christ was resurrected as a "life-giving" spirit being. He actually returned to the same glorified state as before his incarnation. Christ IS God;

    Hebrews 1:8 But to the Son [He (the Father) says:] Your (Christ's) throne, O God, (Christ) [is] forever and ever; A scepter of righteousness [is] the scepter of Your Kingdom."

He is on the God plane of existence. That is what makes His life so valuable as payment for mankind's sins. The whole Christian world understand this and believes this.

    Romans 8:29 "For whom He foreknew, He also predestined [to be] conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren."

What does Christ look like?

    Rev 1:14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; :16 and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.

Here is our first taste of exactly where we are headed. We are being conformed to the IMAGE of CHRIST, that Christ may be the FIRSTborn of MANY others LIKE HIM.

1 John 3:2 "Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is."

2 Peter 1:4 "By which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you MAY BE ( yet future) partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption [that is] in the world through lust."

Philippians 3:21 "Who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His GLORIOUS body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself."

Hebrews 2:10 "For it was fitting for Him, (Christ) for whom [are] all things and by whom [are] all things, in bringing many sons to GLORY, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings."

Dan 12:3 And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.

Matt 13:43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

The same kind of spirit Christ IS, is the same kind of spirit WE will become at the resurrection. Since it is accepted that Christ is GOD, on the God plane, then what other conclusion can you draw from these plain scriptures? On top of this, add the following:

Revelation 3:9 "Indeed I will make [those] of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are (spiritual) Jews (Christians) and are not, but lie -- indeed I will make them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you."

How is it that God Himself tells us that there will be physical people on this earth, during the Millennium, that will actually WORSHIP before the feet of the resurrected saints? Since God alone is worthy of worship, what can this possibly be saying? As resurrected beings (changed from a physical state to a spiritual state of existence), and being fashioned by the hand of God Himself into the very image of Christ, His SON, then WE obviously become literal SONS and DAUGHTERS of the living God, existing on the same plane as a part of the God "family."

Sound like blasphemy? Sound impossible? WHY? Because you have always been told something else. Have you actually studied to PROVE those things which you have been told are true? Satan doesn't want you to comprehend this truth because He can't stand the idea of OUR being more powerful and glorified than he could ever become. He will do anything to prevent mankind from learning this truth, even promoting a False Religious System that keeps people ignorant of the truth.

John 20:17 "Jesus said to her, Do not cling to Me, for I have not yet ascended to My Father; but go to My brethren and say to them, I am ascending to MY Father and YOUR Father, and [to] MY God and YOUR God." You can see that Christ plainly tells us that God is our Father and God as He is Christ's Father and God. There are many other scriptures that build on this truth which you will have to examine for yourself. The fact is, the human destiny is far beyond anything science fiction or new age belief could dream up!
