Over in Genesis 1 and 2 we get the introduction of who we are to be. And then in James 1 we get more insight on who we are, really, oh yea! Put the two together and you have an insight on truth that will blow your mind! -- for real!!
Let's look into the mirror - Genesis 1:speaks about IN THE BEGINNING. . . as in the creative beginning. The description of the creation of the heavens and the earth, the trees and seas, the creatures and human beings -- impact our souls with the creative power of revelation words, revelation wisdom = truth. While God is simple, He/She/Son are awesome!
In verse 26 of Genesis chapter 1, we are presented with God speaking to the 'us' of who God is (Father, Spirit/Mother, Son) and describing who humankind really is. Let's read: "Then God said, "Let US make man in OUR image, according to OUR likeness. . ." let's stop here and look closely at this. There wasn't a crowd of people, nope; there was only God the creator, the Holy Spirit/Mother, and the Living Word/Son. These are the 'US' being referred to. Next.
Our Image -- what image is this? Well in John 4:24 it states "God is Spirit..." So, could we say that the original first human - Adam was created in the 'US' spirit image? I know, a bit much, but take a deep breath and stay focused on the mirror. In verse 27 of Genesis 1, we find more clarity on the creation of humankind: "So God created (hu)man in His/Her/Word's own image" - step 1 and continuing "...in the image of God He/She/Son, He created him/hu-man" -- this is stated twice, humm, do you think there is a point here?
Well continuing on in this verse we find "male and female He/God created them. In the creative moment, God determined humankind to be in His image (as God is Spirit source - so are we), male and female -- uh, excuse me does that mean God is male, female -- Well yes, but not as we limitedly understand male and female to be --- BUT as GOD knows male and female to be. Ok, meditate on this and we will continue . . .
Are you ready? For the next step, the next view. If so, let's go.
Genesis 1:26 "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."
The outline of how human beings were to be created and for what is laid out in this verse: human beings were created INITIALLY, IN THE BEGINNING,
First: In God's Image;
Second: According to God's (Our) likeness; and
Third: To have Dominion over (yes, this is part of our creation - of who we are).
Then this plan is put into action by God with very specific detail in verse 27 of Genesis 1:
"So God created man in His own image: in the image of God He created him: male and female He created them."
Think of wrapping clay around and around to form a shape - We are given the format here:
First: In His own image
Second: In the image of God He created him
Third: Male and Female He created them
This is creation time folks, so don't just read words and 'think' you know. To 'know' the truth is like breathing air -- you don't breathe air you don't live. With truth if you don't breath spirit, you don't know cause you ain't got it yet.
What I am saying here is there is profound, important truth for you to receive in these two verses -- I am talking about DEEP, D E E P, d e e p, truth folks. So don't rush, and don't 'think' --- Seek God with all your heart and don't lean to your own understanding.
Maybe you need to take a nap or simply go do something physical to keep your mind occupied, while the Spirit works in you the truth you need -- go Mommie!
