Who we are…

For by Him ALL things were created, in Heaven and on Earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—ALL things were Created through Him and for The God head – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

The seen was Created and God Saw it was good. So, God Created Mankind in His Own Image, in The Image of God He Created them (Genesis 1:27); male and female.

“Let Us (The 3-Head) make huMan beings in Our Image, to be like Us. They will reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the livestock, all the wild animals on the Earth, and the small animals that scurry along the ground.”

So God Created huMan beings in His Own Image. In The Image of God He Created them; Male and Female He Created them.

Has any huMan seen God?

The Bible tells us that no one has ever seen God (John 1:18) except The Lord Jesus Christ. In Exodus 33:20, God declares, “You cannot see my face, for no one may see me and live.” These Scriptures seem to contradict other Scriptures which describe various people “seeing” God. For example, Exodus 33:11 describes Moses speaking to God “face to face.” How could Moses speak with God “face to face” if no one can see God’s face and live? In this instance, the phrase “face to face” is a figure of speech indicating they were in very close communion. God and Moses were speaking to each other as if they were two human beings having a close conversation.

In Genesis 32:30, Jacob saw God appearing as a man; he did not truly see God. Samson’s parents were terrified when they realized they had seen God (Judges 13:22), but they had only seen Him appearing as an angel. Jesus was God in the flesh (John 1:114) so when people saw Him, they were seeing God. So, yes, God can be “seen” and many people have “seen” God. At the same time, no one has ever seen God revealed in all His glory. In our fallen human condition, if God were to fully reveal Himself to us, we would be consumed and destroyed. Therefore, God veils Himself and appears in forms in which we can “see” Him. However, this is different than seeing God with all His glory and holiness displayed. People have seen visions of God, images of God, and appearances of God, but no one has ever seen God in all His fullness (Exodus 33:20).

If Moses met face to face with God, why, later, was he not allowed to see God’s face?

Why was God so evident in the Bible, and seems so hidden today?

How should a Christian respond to people who claim, “I saw Jesus”?

What is a theophany? What is a Christophany?

Did Moses see God?

Do, I appear as another? No.

David talks about the unique role that God plays in bringing us into existence in Psalm 139:13-15.

For You Created my inmost being;
You knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderfilled, I know that full well.

when I was made in the secret place.
When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, Your Eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me were written in Your Book before one of them came to be.

David has become a voice for each of us, expressing gratitude to God for His creative involvement in making us. God was intentionally involved in making us who we are, both inwardly (“inmost being”) and outwardly (“my frame”). The inner man has to do with our personalities, our mind, will, and emotions, our likes and dislikes, our strengths and weaknesses. The outer man is our physical bodies, our appearance, physical strength, natural coordination, etc.

To show God’s personal involvement in making us, the Bible uses words and phrases that capture the notion of nurture and creativity: “knit together,” “fearfully and wonderfully made,” and “woven together.” The psalmist also indicates that God created us with a purpose and destiny in mind, even determining the number of days we would live. Though this passage doesn’t tell us exactly what that purpose is, elsewhere the Bible makes it clear that we exist to bring glory to God (Ephesians 1:11-12), and to live in a personal and eternal relationship with Him (John 3:16). https://www.disciplebuilding.org/2017/11/15/uniqueness-person/

If you think about it we are all different. God created us all with unique features, personalities, and traits. Give thanks to God because He created you to do great things.

1. Romans 12:6-8 In His grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well. So if God has given you the ability to prophesy, speak out with as much faith as God has given you. If your gift is serving others, serve them well. If you are a teacher, teach well. If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly.

2. 1 Peter 4:10-11 God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another. Do you have the gift of speaking? Then speak as though God himself were speaking through you. Do you have the gift of helping others? Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies. Then everything you do will bring glory to God through Jesus Christ. All glory and power to him forever and ever! Amen.

You were Created to do great things.

3. Romans 8:28 And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.  For God knew his people in advance, and he chose them to become like his Son, so that his Son would be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.

4. Ephesians 2:10 For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.

5. Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you—this is the Lord’s declaration—plans for your welfare, not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
