15 The Son is the image of the invisible God,
Please think about what that means and explain it to me please? When I think about it, I'm getting that the Jesus in the flesh is the image of
something invisible. Something invisible can't look like something in the flesh. And, if it did look like Jesus in the flesh, why does a god need a
If that line means the invisible spirit of Jesus is the image of god, then how can his spirit be separate from god if he IS god?
Take a look in the mirror. Imagine doing so. You see you. You are aware that the image is not you, yet you know you are the one casting the image
from the other side. Keep in mind that you are a child of God when you read this verse.
10 “See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven.
Here is where you need to think and conceptualize. You know that the image is not you when you are able to see both sides of the reflection, right?
God can see you and Himself as well in His mirror. You can only see you. God says you are the image. In other words, that angel mentioned above is
you before the Father. The image of you here is not you at all. It's an image.
Christ was the first image rendered into the world. Christ said, "I and the Father are one." God says He is the Alpha and Omega, beginning and end.
God says he is One. The Father is Adam and the NT says Jesus is the last ADAM. After the last Adam, we see 7 billion souls raised to life.
I believe everything that is in accordance with the Law and that is written in the Prophets, 15 and I have the same hope in God as these men
themselves have, that there will be a resurrection of both the righteous and the wicked. 16 So I strive always to keep my conscience clear before God
You need to THINK. If Jesus is the image of all of us here and he created us from this image, what does it mean that all of us return as one body on
earth? Christ has risen. We are the image and it is all here at one time. Why? The Day of the Lord. Christ is the image of the first born Son.
The image and all its parts are here in one place.
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.
Go back to what I stated about you only being able to see one side of this image from here.
11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind
me. 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
13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
Finally, read this last verse and tell me what you now see:
27 So God created mankind in his own image,
in the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them.
Careful. Don't make the mistake of saying you are God. You are multiplicity from unity. Christ has entered the Temple and it has taken 2000 years
to get here.
28 so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who
are waiting for him.
Those who are waiting on the image to fully arrive are the same ones who will return to unity. The darkness will be separated from the image.
22 Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb 2 down the middle of
the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the
leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. 3 No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and
his servants will serve him. 4 They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. 5 There will be no more night. They will not need the
light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. And they will reign for ever and ever.
