Go look in a mirror. What do you see? You see your image. Is it you? No, it's a representation of you. You are not the image. Imagine that you
can now put your consciousness in the reflection and then look at yourself from either side at the same time. Who are you now? You are you and you
are you in the image. What keeps you from being on the side of the image now?
27 So God created mankind in his own image,
in the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them.
Do you recognize yourself yet?
The image is where you are. God created us INSIDE His image and also we are His image. He is the one in the mirror looking from both sides. You are
the image only looking from within the mirror. You cannot see Him, yet he can see Himself and you as well.
1 Corinthians 13
12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully
13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
Do you see yourself yet? God knows you, but you do not know him. You are fully known, yet he is partially know, as in a dimly lit mirror. The
reason you and I cannot fathom something from nothing is because God is Eternal. Eternal means at rest and everything that can be. Eternal denotes
not changing or moving states. We, on the other hand, can only conceive and conceptualize moving things that are finite.
God is infinite, so there can not be a finite number of infinite things. Just as God is infinite, we are finite, therefore, we will end. There
cannot be an infinite amount of finite things. Time is the same. So is our reality. We are multiplicity out of unity. God is unity that gives us
multiplicity of Himself in an image.
We are the Image of God and we are in an Image. This means that you will wake one day on the other side where you actually are. Again, are you the
image or are you the real you when looking in a mirror? God created you as artificial. How did he do it? He used WORD. Word is information.
An acorn has a 75 foot oak tree enfolded into it. Is the acorn the oak tree or is the oak tree the acorn? Neither. Those are the images of the
archetype. What is our archetype?
1 Colossians 1:
15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on
earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He is
before all things, and in him all things hold together.
Jesus is the Son of God, the Living Word. God expressed Himself into the image as one of us to save us from the image. We must be Holy to return.
The only way to do this is to be returned to the Word and brought back to the Eternal where we began. The experience here is to refine us behind the
image so that when we enter the kingdom of God, we are like Christ. To be Christ-like, we fulfill the law or we allow Christ to be our sacrifice.
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were
made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the
darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
DNA is Word in an image. So are my words here. So are you in the image. Who knows what we are outside the image. We need to love God to find out.
How can I demonstrate this? Go to the link in my signature and I have articles expressing my view of God and why I believe in detail. It's like a
book and reflects my journey to seek God by knocking on the door of the image. Remember. You knocked and God answered.
