Today, some points are shared on divinity, the “makeup” of GOD, revelation, and the GODhead.  Also, there is more on covenant relationship with GOD.  A “Yahoo! Answers” writer using ID “Yetis Enjoy Christi” (Level 3 with 1,300 points, a member since November 29, 2011) posted the following:

 

Who was god talking to in gen 1 26? 

26 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals,[a] and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”

 

THE BATTLE AXE:  Three Covenants? (09/09/2014)—(5.)  Along with the social and spiritual contracts through Abraham, Moses and Jesus Christ, Creation, mankind, and the earth have been served by important covenants through Noah, Phinehas, Nehemiah and David.  These served as additions and improvements to initial understandings, and served to amplify and enrich the human experience through assurance, expectation, and personal vision.  These later covenants abolished annihilation by flooding the earth as a tool to eliminate sin; addressed the need of all flesh (mankind and other living creatures) for divine protection and support as the living ark and vessel of divinity and sacred law; established peace and eternal priesthood; instituted dynasty, perpetual reign, and succession in place of popular election of rulers.  While the covenant of circumcision did involve blood, collective action, commitment, relinquishing value (we say, sacrifice), and submission to GOD, circumcision did not establish necessary atonement, repentance, or resistance to sin.  See again Genesis 9:  8-17, Genesis 17:  1-14, Numbers 25:  1-18, Acts 3:  22-26 and Hebrews 8:  1-13, KJV.

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost:  and these three are one.  (1st John 5:  7-9, KJV)

 

THE DOUBLE DAGGER:  Personality (04/27/2014); Anointed (04/28/2014); A Personal Relationship? (04/03/2014); GOD Everywhere? (04/04/2014); Jesus in GODhead (04/01/2014); The Fullness of GODhead? (01/09/2014); Utterance is Spirit (09/08/2013); A Start for the Idea of GOD? (09/09/2013)

 

“Yetis Enjoy Christi”, here are a few points that have been valuable among Christian believers who accept an adult duty to spread the Gospel, and a place as priests and kings through Jesus Christ:

(1.)  Because GOD is a spirit, divinity can not be known or understood using only the tools immediately available to finite created beings and living creatures such as appetite, intellect, logic, mathematics, reason, sensation, and science.  Multiple ongoing operations of GOD are now in place that permit awareness of the active presence of GOD, and that establishes discernment (ability to use ones own spirit content to correctly recognize and respond to spirit content within events, messages, objects, and other persons).

(2.)  The “makeup” of GOD may be understood as various spirit substances that have independent existence, yet are inseparable (where you find one, you find all), and interact continuously.  Included are such aspects of divinity as faith, holiness, joy, longsuffering, love, truth, wisdom, and wrath against sin.  Faith is made up only of faith; holiness contains only holiness; joy consists only of joy; and all continue as pure and uncontaminated.

(3.)  GOD has “appeared” within the consciousness of created beings and living creatures using familiar ideas such as distinction by ones deeds or work (we say, division of labor), carnal form (we say, flesh, incarnation), function, person, and role.  The active presence of GOD does not depend upon the existence, consciousness or presence of any finite and temporary creature.

There is far more to be said, correctly understood, and spiritually apprehended.  (For example, (4.)  The language we have from GOD for speaking of divinity includes the term “Godhead” wherein GOD presents using multiple person, yet, is one.  While pure spirit is without measurable dimension (we say, form, shape), GOD may use multiple material forms to accomplish divine purpose, and to express eternal duration.).  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.

Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,  Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.  And this will we do, if God permit.  (Hebrews 6:  1-3, KJV)
