GOD SOMETIMES DESCRIBED HIMSELF ANTHROPOMORPHICALLY TO HELP US RELATE TO HIM…

God is a Spirit…

John 4:24 (NKJV)

24 God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”

 God is invisible…

1 John 4:12 (NKJV)

12 No one has seen God at any time.

God is not male or female…

Numbers 23:19 (NKJV)

19 “God is not a man, that He should lie,
Nor a son of man, that He should repent.

God does not have a face, hands, feet, arms, legs, a mouth, a heart or a brain…

God doesn’t breath…

He is a Spirit.

He’s 100% God.

The earth and universe cannot contain Him.

1 Kings 8:27 (NKJV)

27 “But will God indeed dwell on the earth? Behold, heaven and the heaven of heavens cannot contain You. How much less this temple which I have built!

He does not need time…He is outside of time…He is eternal.

Jesus is THE image of and represents the invisible God bodily.

Colossians 1:15 (NKJV)

15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.

Colossians 2:9 (NKJV)

For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily;

He was there in the beginning. Elohim is a plural noun.

Genesis 1:26 (NKJV)

26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness;

He appeared several times before He took the form of the Son of God…Mary’s son.

Daniel 3:25 (NKJV)

25 “Look!” he answered, “I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire; and they are not hurt, and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.”

He took on the form of sinful flesh, using a body as a male.

Romans 8:3 (NKJV)

For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh,

 He is 100% God and was 100% man.

Philippians 2:6 (NKJV)

who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God,

He and Yahweh (God) are ONE (Elohim).

Angels are Spiritual beings that minister to God and to saints.

Hebrews 1:14 (NKJV)

14 Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation?

They occupy different celestial bodies, but can take human form.

Isaiah 6:2 (NKJV)

Above it stood seraphim; each one had six wings: with two he covered his face, with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew.

 They are neither male nor female…just like God.

When they take human form, they HAVE to use a male or female body.

Hebrews 13:2 (NKJV)

Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels

Your spirit/soul/essence/consciousness, or however you want to say it, is invisible.

You can’t see it.

He places it in a male or female body.

Genesis 5:2 (NKJV)

He created them male and female, and blessed them and called them Mankind in the day they were created.

 We are placed within time, for now.

You are 100% spirit and 100% human, for now.

You can be a father or mother, son or daughter, brother or sister, manager or subordinate…all at the same time, yet be one person.

You as a father won’t relate to others in the same authority as you do as a brother, or a boss, or a coach, or a preacher. Each ‘person’ within you has a different authority, but you’re still one person.

Because we are 100% spirit and 100% human…

Aren’t we mind, body and spirit?

Because we have several authorities, or ‘persons’ within us, yet remain one person…

THEN…

It shouldn’t be so hard to understand that the authorities in ONE God can be ONE.

‘Trinity’ is just a word used to describe the essence of God.

He is not three God’s; He is one, just as we are person…

That’s what it means when He made us in His image. Not that we physically look like Him, but that we can have His essence. That we can communicate with Him. That we can feel as He feels, and LOVE as He loves.

God sometimes describes Himself to us anthropomorphically (ascribing human characteristics) for our benefit, to help us relate to Him…to help us understand Him.

The more we understand God, the easier it is for us love Him and help explain Him to others.

If this blesses you, please share it with someone else whom you feel it will bless.

BE BLESSTIFIED!

God bless you! I'm a husband, father and ordained Minister since 1996. I serve as an Associate Minister at Oak Spring Church Arlington TN, a suburb of Memphis. I'm a professional Copywriter for a Fortune 500 company, published Gospel songwriter and owner of an independent label, Al-Go-Rhythm Music. My main spiritual gift is Exhortation...I'm a natural encourager. I love the word of God and sharing it from a "Wow, I never thought of it like that before" perspective. There's so much fresh revelation in God's word that is just as relevant today as it was as it unfolded. I hope my daily devotionals enhance your walk with God, taking you beyond BLESSED to BLESSTIFIED.
