Man Will Become Like God

The Genesis Chronicle

Colossians  1:16  For by Him were all things created
Colossians 1:16 For by Him were all things created
 Isaiah 14:14........I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
Isaiah 14:14........I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

The Genesis Chronicle Supports The Doctrine That Man will Become Like God.

As hard as this might sound to many this earth existed long before the Genesis story, most people believe that this earth only started from Genesis 1 vs. 1.

Genesis 1:1 in the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

Our God is a great and perfect being; Have you ever asked yourself if you were God how would you have created the earth in the first place.Perfectly I assume. But vs. 2 says

Genesis 1:2. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

היהThe orginal word rendered here for the word was comes from the Hebrew

hâyâh

haw-yaw'

A primitive root (compare H1933); to exist, that is, be or become, come to pass

According to the original Greek and Hebrew the earth became waste. So we know that between Genesis 1 vs. 1 and Genesis 1 vs. 2, something terrible happen, something went wrong do you know what the bible have to say about it.

Revelation 12:7-9 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,

… And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.

…. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.


Jeremiah 4:23-26 I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens, and they had no light.

…… I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly.

…... I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled.

……. I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the LORD, and by his fierce anger.

What had caused such fierce anger by the Lord?

Isaiah 14:12-14 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!

……. For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:

…… I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

So here we see the destruction of the earth where angels first inhabit the earth left their first estate

Jude 1:6 and the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.

So God reconstruct the earth for mankind temporary existents. So what he does was to put in place everything that man need for his survival.

Psalm 104:30 Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created: and thou renewest the face of the earth.

God wants to reproduce himself in us or through us so he creates this temporary dwelling where he can tabernacle with us in the spirit to teach us how to become like him.

So the Bible is God’s way of teaching mankind to be who we ought to be and to show us who God wants us to be and how to get there.

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Colossians 1:16 For by Him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

But why? To right the wrong Satan did. Satan’s passion of crime in wanting to become like the most high, in the way it was done was wrong and his motivation was evil.

Ezekiel 28:14-17 Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.

Ezekiel 28:15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.

Ezekiel 28:17 Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.

The devil corrupted his own heart, leading to faulty reasoning.

God wants us mankind to be like him and that is why he recreated this vast earth.

The book of Genesis holds all the details of a perfect father bringing to life children and teaching them the way to life, the way to him.

There were also in the creation story many other living things that were created to assist man in his development on this spiritual journey. In the physical word we see these other living things as troubles and crosses in our way but in really they were made to assist us in our developing stages to become like the most high God.

Genesis 1: 21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

Colossians 1:16 For by Him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

So everything God created he did it for us and everything is subject to us when he created us he gave us dominion over all the earth.

He also say unto us be

Genesis 1:28 Be fruitful, and multiply,

This is saying to us we too will have children and it is required of us to become parents ourselves, right from the Start.

God wants us to focus on been good parents as He, our heavenly father as shown us.

Galatians 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

….. Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

Matthew 4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

God look down from heaven upon the face of the earth and saw His people gone astray.

Deuteronomy 7:6 For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.

Ezekiel 34:6 My sheep wandered through all the mountains, and upon every high hill: yea, my flock was scattered upon all the face of the earth, and none did search or seek after them.

Isaiah 1:2-4 Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth: for the LORD hath spoken, I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me.

…… The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master's crib: but Israel doth not know, my people doth not consider.

…… Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the LORD, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward.

Numbers 12:3 (Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth.)

But what does all of this have to do with the Genesis Chronicle?

God created a garden. He place Adam in the garden, Adam at one point in His Life was very meek. When it was said of Moses That he was very meek, Moses was a full grown man, well over eighty years of age trusted with power and authority, by his hands God hand done much wonders and signs and Moses remain meek, so meek that the bible said he was the meekest above all the men on the face of the earth.

As for the Genesis Chronicle, it teaches that very principle.

The principle of meekness through obedience was found in,

Genesis 2:15 And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.

Genesis 2:16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:

Genesis 2:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

Genesis 2:19 And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.

Genesis 2:20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.

There is no recorded evidence that Adam rebelled again God’s authority over his life, Adam was now a grown man, old enough to get married, to work and was equipped for responsibility.

The task to named all cattle, fowl and every beast must have been hard, yet Adam never say master I am tired, you created them why must I name them.

Adam been a man past on his teachings to his dear wife whom later was deceived by the Devil.

The fall of Adam teaches us the vital lesson of the genesis journal. But as it was in the beginning so shall it be in the end.

Adam once was perfect in all his ways, but because he ate from his wife, he failed the test. Now I must say to husbands, if you want not to fail don’t eat from your wife, simple.

Just kidding, that’s not the correct interpretation. The correct interpretation is that you must not run the risk of putting not even your very own before God, or even to trust your own heart or eyes above God’s commandments.


Numbers 15:39 And it shall be unto you for a fringe, that ye may look upon it, and remember all the commandments of the LORD, and do them; and that ye seek not after your heart and your own eyes, after which ye use to go a whoring:

Romans 12:16 Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits. (Pride, self-importance, vanity, arrogance, self-satisfaction).

Ephesians 5:22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. (Present, put forward, offer, tender, propose, surrender)

1Corinthians 6:19 What? Know you not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are your own?

Now I must say, that I truly believe that God wants to take us back to Eden before the fall of man, But God wants us to understand why Adam fell so we don’t’ make the same mistake twice; also God wants mankind to understand why He had to eliminate the devil and all evil influences.

This time God will be ensuring that the tree of the knowledge of good and evil is removed from His Garden. When Satan sinned, He had nothing but the earth which was without form and void and darkness was upon the face of the earth. God renews the earth and build Himself a kingdom called the Garden of Eden; Satan cannot accuse God of any form of injustice. God never interrupted Satan’s time of rule over the earth; He only made himself new beings in His own likeness and image. He began to walk and talk with man and build a relationship with His creation. Satan learnt of God’s plan because god revealed it to him. Satan interfered in God’s business again. Remember God wants us to be like Him, and the only way to develop God’s character is to practice obedience to God in all circumstance. Let me explain; to give up this way of life, Satan’s nature, Satan’s consciousness of self. Satan revealed to Eve, this consciousness of self, you can be your own person and have your own freedom to think and to make choices of your own. Look says Satan, you are gods just like your father, and he shouldn’t be telling you not to listen wisdom and get knowledge; No, that’s not right.

Now back to the bible.

The word fruit in the Hebrew mean.

min minnîy minnêy

min, min-nee', min-nay'

For H4482; properly a part of; hence (prepositionally), from or out of in many senses: - above, after, among, at, because of, by (reason of), from (among), in, X neither, X nor, (out) of, over, since, X then, through, X whether, with.

This word is simply saying what comes out of,


This is the product of the tree, what the tree produces; this tree produces the knowledge of good and evil. The original Hebrew word suggest, all the produce of the thing no matter how where it comes from or out, whether: above, after, among, at, because of, by (reason of), from (among). The warning is; do not eat from this particular Tree.

Genesis 3:3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

H5401נש

רוּח

rûach

roo'-akh

(Literally) to smell or (by implication perceive (figuratively to anticipate, enjoy): - accept, make of quick understanding.

G680

ἅπτομαι

haptomai

hap'-tom-ahee

Reflexive of G681; properly to attach oneself to, that is, to touch (in many implied relations): - touch.

G2345

θιγγάνω

thigganō

thing-gan'-o (to finger); to manipulate, that is, have to do with; by implication to injure: - handle, touch.


Adam was still learning from God, he knew only what God taught him. The consciousness of what was right or wrong was not in the mind of Adam. He was like a child. Adam in God’s judgment never reaches maturity to deal with everything so today the process continues in our life.

Genesis 3:3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

Now look at this tree,

tâvek midst

taw'-vek

From an unused root meaning to sever; a bisection, that is, (by implication) the centre: - among (-st), X between, half, X (there-, where-) in (-to), middle, mid [-night], midst (among), X out (of), X through, X with (-in).

Genesis 3:4 And the serpent said unto the woman, ye shall not surely die:

The devil is saying the same thing too, to you and I. You may not want to admit it, but there are things and events in your life that you make choices about and the devil whispers in your heart, you shall not surely fail. Some words the devil might also say is; You shall not surely lose out; No one will know; this is the best and right way or he might even say you will win. But please do remember the devil is a deceiver.

You are only a winner if God’s truth is lived out in your life, that is to say only is the spirit of truth dwells within you.

Genesis 3:5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

The devil is actually saying that your desires and needs are above God’s laws. The Bible reveals here to us the areas that Satan will tempt us, they are,

Genesis 3:6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food,

First, ( survival).

and that it was pleasant to the eyes,

Second; (our emotions)

and a tree to be desired to make one wise,

Third; Physiological

she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat,

what she did here is to take in what the devil said and digest it, that is to say she believed it.

and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

Genesis 3:7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

One of the greatest lessons that are illustrated here is that Adam surrendered to his wife causing them both to be cast out of the Garden of Eden. Ad Adam stud up and held on to God’s laws and ways he could have saved His wife. Jesus is and will always be the head of the church He have saved his church. You can be a part of that specific Church of God, that’s the privilege he have given to you and I.

The Genesis story is what the entire bible is based on. The Bible is teaching us that the way of the devil does lead to death, pain, slavery, corruption, injustice, and every evil.

The Genesis story is simply saying that mankind should and always trust in God’s way, and is way and will only. In so doing there is an eternal reward, and that reward is that mankind will become what the devil wanted to be, just like God. God wants for us to be like Him so he created us in His image, and likeness. (Genesis 1: 26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:) our life here on earth is to finish that process by developing God’s Holy Character which can only be develop by complete obedience through love and faith.

If we are successful in overcoming through spiritual growth then at the resurrection we will have this new body as Jesus Christ had after he was resurrected.

John 20:17 Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.

John 20:19 Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.

Genesis 3:22 And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever:

Genesis 3:23 Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.

Genesis 3:24 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.

Within the 3rd chapter of Genesis we see that God had to shut the door until we have learnt our lesson and choose the perfect way of life, increase and overcome and yes, prove ourselves worthy of that glorious gift of everlasting life.
