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.
I like your analogy there, however I may have mis-interpreted what you are typing, for what I understand to be my belief, is that 'god' is the only
thing that exists, and will ever exist...period. Nothing outside of it, but can only be 'within' itself. Your 'God Created us INSIDE His image and
also we are His image' reference to me backs up my pre-conceived notion that what I belief is accurate. However I disagree with the 'you cannot see
him' aspect, because I belief I can, simply by knowing all about me - i know that part of it. Perhaps not in totality, that perhaps requires a
'christ consciousness' (perhaps what Jesus acquired), but that doesn't mean no one else can or cannot achieve this. I AM part of the greater part
of what is to be called 'god', a facet of a diamond - but so are you.
Oh, does that mean i'm talking to myself, err... you.. me.. yikes what a brain fart
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
Wow, I think I just wrote that above yeah? To me that statement says GOD saying that I am a part of it, but through the illusion of time, i've not
achieved the 'end path' through 'marty' yet to the know thyself fully as the ultimate creator... cool, something to look forward to.
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. [snip]
Yes. I see myself. God does know me, not because he's external, but because I am his INTERNAL. I do not know him fully - as I am only a part of him.
I am fully known, because he's already lived my life, I suppose this is how he knows everything. I am a small part of his greater consciousness,
focusing on 'marty' right now. You are GOD focusing on 'you' right now. Would love to know all of you - oh wait.....
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.
Possibly, but in 'martys' belief system, infinite GOD requires Infinite 'finite' things so that 'everything' (and that does mean everything) can
be known and experienced. Time is not the same, time is only relevant to this point in existence, the past was a part of time that had previously been
experienced and the future is time that has not occured yet, and time may only be part of this physical reality, perhaps there's a reality where time
doesn't exist. That does denote 'everything' right?
[snip] How did he do it? He used WORD. Word is information.
Sorta lost me there..... WORD???
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.
Yes, I however don't think it refers to jesus though - or it could, i don't know as Marty - I perhaps know as Jesus though.. (Get your head around
that one hehe)
I think this reference to creation of everything 'within' itself, nothing more - no externalisation of 'jesus' or anything ...
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.
just had a new idea as I was writing this thread, that the accumulated knowledge of 'humanity' as human beings on earth is 'christ consciousness'
incarnated as 'jesus' 2000 years ago... Not denying it, but still need more meditating on that. Perhaps its all translation of the bible or OTHER
sources that may be causing the problem.
I think the problem may be that people think that 'jesus' was an external person that needs to be accepted, but I have a greater belief that Jesus
may be a level of re-incarnation I've not reached yet in the illusion of time
