master of life in earth, sky and sea

…and the adventure begins, the most exciting and fulfilling journey imaginable

Like God

We are the created and God is the Creator.

I think we can understand that the likeness of God does reflect His authority and mastery over life in earth, skies and seas.

But the significance of God deciding to make us in His image is still greater than authority or mastery.  Flesh and spirit, heaven and earth must be put together, allied to both worlds.

God desired to express Himself when we were created and we were to be dedicated and devoted to Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

We were made in God’s image, and after His likeness; three parts – body, soul and mind – representative of the Trinity – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  The soul is a spirit, an intelligent, immortal spirit, an active spirit. The mind consists of authority and dominion, the government of the inferior creatures, as it were, God’s representative on earth. It also represented the freedom of our will which has in it more of God’s image than our government of life here on earth. Lastly, our body, planned in the beginning of time for the arrival of God as a baby.  Walking upright to correlate to the authority given to us on earth.
