All interpretations are my own in both my Posts and Pages.
I have just completed my Page on Man’s Creation, and decided that due to the new approach that I interpret from the Bible, it should prove to be interesting and have much food for thought.
I have, therefore, decided to place this Page as my Post of today.
We, as humans have been created in Jehovah God’s image, and that could sound quite confusing to many persons, taking into consideration all the different interpretations that exist about Jehovah God and even Satan the Devil. Millions of people believe that Satan the Devil does not really exist as a person, but it is just our bad inclinations that are portrayed by his existence.
So I am now placing my Page as today’s Post:
|It is quite evident that we , the human race, were created in Jehovah God’s image, and that we are not in spirit form, and that we are of flesh and blood.|
|So there must be some meaning to the Scriptures in the Bible that compare us to Jehovah God’s image.|
|As is recorded in the Bible, we and all the other creatures, are physically basically the same. We breathe, we eat, we sleep, we get tired, and basically everything else. Even our dying is exactly the same, not the method, but the death itself. This statement will be difficult for most to accept, but the Bible says so:|
|Ecclesiastes 3:19-22 19. For there is an eventuality as respects the sons of mankind and an eventuality as respects the beast, and they have the same eventuality. As the one dies, so the other dies; and they all have but one spirit, so that there is no superiority of the man over the beast, for everything is vanity. 20. All are going to one place. They have all come to be from the dust, and they are all returning to the dust. 21. Who is there knowing the spirit of the sons of mankind, whether it is ascending upward; and the spirit of the beast, whether it is descending downward to the earth? 22. And I have seen that there is nothing better than that the man should rejoice in his works, for that is his portion; because who will bring him in to look on what is going to be after him?|
|The above Scriptures are not twisted, nor changed, nor are they one of “God’s mysterious reasoning’s or ways, or whatever”. They are based on fact. There is plenty of other Scriptures that support these Scriptures. Let us see what Genesis 9:4 reads: “Only flesh with its soul—its blood—YOU must not eat.” But humans do not eat humans, so we must conclude that animals are also souls. Seems like quite a rude awakening for billions that were misled, if, and when, they hear these facts!|
|We still have not solved the comparison of the image that man shares with Jehovah God.|
|Firstly, we have the power of reasoning, and then all the other qualities that Jehovah God has instilled in us. We have emotions – love, hate, aspirations, sadness, joy, happiness, etc.|
|The power of reasoning allows us to evaluate what we hear, read and observe and then to equate it with other translations or interpretations. Then we also have the ability to weigh it up against truth, practicability, logic and continuity. For instance, Jehovah God has a plan, Jehovah God is Almighty, so it is logical and practicable that He will not allow a minor creation of His, Satan the Devil, to cause Him to have to change His original plan. From this then, we can use our powers of perception, reasoning, etc. logically and with practicability.|
|Our Father in Heaven is a Family Person. His whole Person revolves around the concept of the Perfect Family. Satan is so aware of this powerful tool of Jehovah God that he has virtually destroyed the family as an entity on earth. This has caused such a floundering amongst the humans on earth. Since Satan was cast out of Heaven in 1914 he has had ample time to destroy everything our Heavenly Father stands for. Family life has deteriorated since approximately the year 1950AD into a degenerated condition. Do the youth of today know there used to be three meals at the table every day. Do they know that grace is supposed to be a short thanksgiving said before or after every meal. They have most probably seen this funny ritual on the television and thought it was a local ritual of those folk. There are many more examples. Too many to mention. For instance, when a child arrived from a day at school, Mom was at home waiting for him or her. Most children do not even have proper homes, if any homes at all, so millions of children do not , or have not, experienced this institution of Jehovah God, that was destroyed by Satan the Devil mainly by means of the desires of materialism.How many of the millions that have been affected by dismissal or retrenchment during this economic recession have died due to starvation? I do not think one has. Difficulty and self-imposed suffering, yes. Actually plenty thereof. So the statement that both the mother and the father have to earn an income to be able to survive does not seem to have any real substance. Actually, in my opinion, the fact that both were earning an income has been the sole cause of single parents being so numerous, and children really lost as far as Family life is concerned. Even where both parents are still together, the concept of Family life in its entire reason for existing has lost most of its God-instilled value.|
|Also, how many people literally share the same mothers, or the same fathers, while not being related to the other spouse. It would seem logical that because Jehovah God planned for the family units on earth, that He could have a similar arrangement in Heaven. Only a few beings might desire to float through life without a soul-mate, but Jehovah God found it good to join two persons together, so that they were considered to be one. Let us glance at Ephesians 3: 14 and 15 as it makes for interesting reading and comprehension:|
|Ephesians 3:14 & 15: 14. On account of this I bend my knees to the Father, 15 to whom every family in heaven and on earth owes its name, These two Scriptures spell out clearly that Jehovah God did not consider it really good for the angels to float around, each without a soul-mate. It is totally logical for the angelic families to exist.|
|It is most important to remember that Jehovah God created families, and no where in His original intention was there mention of single persons living alone into eternity.|
|Let us have a look at a few Scriptures from the Bible about Man’s Creation:|
|And God went on to say: “Let us make man in our image, according to our likeness, and let them have in subjection the fish of the sea and the flying creatures of the heavens and the domestic animals and all the earth and every moving animal that is moving upon the earth.”|
|And God proceeded to create the man in his image, in God’s image he created him; male and female he created them.|
