We have to be very careful of people who either twist scriptures or don’t understand them. There are many people today who claim that WE ARE ALL gods because they misrepresent or misunderstand Psalm 82:6…

I said, “You are gods,[b]

And all of you are children of the Most High.

The word ‘gods’ here comes from the Hebrew name for God… Elohim, which is a plural noun. It is the word that implies God is one God with three authorities as indicated in Genesis 1:26a

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

But, it also denotes when God delegates authority to humans, such as judges and leaders. He demands righteousness and justice from those whom have been granted authority. He demands that they don’t show partiality, and defends those who are powerless.

It speaks of delegated authority and not deity. Yes we belong to God, but we are not gods

Don’t let anyone deceive you with clever words or cherry picking scripture. Every scripture must be harmonized with the entire word of God.

Yes, we are made in God’s image. Yes, we are sons and daughters of God when we accept Yeshua, Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior…

But NO, we are not GODS. There is only one true and living God. The Lord God of Israel from everlasting to everlasting.

Psalm 82(NKJV)

 

82 God stands in the congregation of the mighty;
He judges among the gods.[a]
How long will you judge unjustly,
And show partiality to the wicked? Selah
Defend the poor and fatherless;
Do justice to the afflicted and needy.
Deliver the poor and needy;
Free them from the hand of the wicked.

They do not know, nor do they understand;
They walk about in darkness;
All the foundations of the earth are unstable.

I said, “You are gods,[b]
And all of you are children of the Most High.
But you shall die like men,
And fall like one of the princes.”

Arise, O God, judge the earth;
For You shall inherit all nations.

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.
