YOU ARE GODS

Any spirit which tells you that somebody will bolt from the blues and crash-land on the ground like an eaglet is not of God but demonic. Why the Jews crucified Our Lord Jesus Christ was that He being man claimed He was the Son of God. And they killed Him because they had not the Spirit of God in them. Up till today, the Jews still assert that God has no child. This assertion implies that there is no God, for if God has no child, who is your father? All such disputes and confusions which trouble the world stem from the flesh.

There are some people here whose study of the evolutionary process of man makes them believe that there is no God and that life started from the sea bed creatures, to reptiles, to the present Homo sapiens. Go to the universities; listen to scientists and many others, you will realise that no one believes in God. That is why you behave unseemingly. It is written in your law that you are gods, the children of the Most High God but you shall die like men. If you are a god, then dying like men will not stop you from being a god. If you are a Son of God and die, this does not obviate the fact that you are a child of God. If you are a god and you get sick, it does not mean that you are no longer a god. Because you are sick, if you are a god and are disgraced or are hungry, or in lack, it does not mean that those things would not have come to you were you not to be a god. Have you not seen what happens in the world with God Almighty?

In the beginning God said, let us make man in our own image, after our likeness. What is the meaning of making man in our own image? This means that man should look like God. When you argue that God is not man, what then is God? Is He a tree? Were God not man, how would He have made man in this form which according to Him is His own image? Now you argue that man is not God. If man is not God, what is man? What is God? Is He not man? God put everything under man’s care that he should superintend over fishes, animals, birds and every other thing. He also ordered man to name all creatures. Now, the flesh has deceived you into believing that man is not God. If man is not God, what is man? Let us assume that man is not God, but the Son of God. But you argue that man is not a child of God. What then is man, when you say that man is neither God nor a Son of God, but believing in Our Lord Jesus Christ what was He?

The birth of Our Lord Jesus Christ was to confound all wisdom. Mary was conceived for nine months, after which Jesus was delivered and people from east and west paid obeisance to Him. Argue that such birth did not take place. If you will argue that Our Lord Jesus Christ is the Child of God, whose child are you? This issue leads to yet another. Mary gave birth to Jesus the Christ as her first child, He was a Son of God, and she also gave birth to others, the sons of men. We have our support from the Bible that those who are born of the flesh are carnal and those born of the spirit are spiritual. Our Lord Jesus Christ was born of the spirit and others were carnal. Can you not realise that man is of two categories? Amongst us, there are the sons of God and the sons of men. Now that you argue that God has just a son, does it mean that He ended His action by begetting only Our Lord Jesus Christ?

Has God not begotten any other person despite the teeming population of the inhabitants of the world? Can you say that Our Lord Jesus Christ was the first and last child of God? Secondly, do you believe that since after the ascension of Our Lord Jesus Christ, He is still in the atmosphere? Did you not read that after three days He resurrected and showed Himself to the people? And when the disciples were terrified He told them: “Behold my hands and my feet, that it is myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.” While they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, He said unto them, have ye here any meat, and they gave Him a piece of boiled fish, and of honey comb. And He took it and did eat before them.
