Experiencing Christ

Man Having a Spirit to Contain God

Gen. 1:26 And God said, let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness… 2:7 Jehovah God formed man with the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became living soul. (9)And out of the ground Jehovah God caused to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food, as well as the tree of life in the middle of the garden…
1Th 5:23  Now, may the God of peace and harmony set you apart, making you completely holy. And may your entire being—spirit, soul, and body—be kept completely flawless in the appearing of our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One. 

Genesis chapters one and two show us that when God created man, He made two preparations concerning man. The first preparation was that He created man in His image and according to His likeness. As man was created according to God, he resembles God in many aspects. The various aspects of man’s expression such as his pleasure, anger, sorrow, joy, preference, choice, etc.–whether it be his emotion, will, or disposition–express God to a certain degree and are miniatures of all that is in God.

Another preparation was that God created for man a spirit in the depths of his being. Of the countless varieties of living things in the universe, only man has a spirit. The angels are Spirits, but that is a different matter. In the whole creation there is one kind of created being that is not spirit yet has a spirit, and that is man. Why did God create a spirit for man in the depths of his being? We all know it was because God wants man to receive Him, Who is Spirit. In the same way He created a stomach for man because He wants man to take in food. Consider this: suppose God did not create a stomach for man, how could we take in food? Because we have a stomach, we can receive food into us, enjoy it, digest it, and assimilate it into our being, making it our constituent. In the same manner, since we have a spirit within us, we can receive God into us and assimilate Him, making Him our very constituent.

In the first two chapters of Genesis, when God created man to be His vessel, He made these two steps of preparation: one step was to create man to be like Him, and the other was to put a spirit within man that man might receive Him. After He had made these two preparations He placed Himself before man in the form of the tree of life in order that man might receive Him and obtain Him as life. Brothers and sisters, it is in man’s spirit that the contact between God and man is made. Once there is such a contact between God and man, God enters into man to be his content, and man becomes God’s vessel to express Him outwardly. Thus God’s eternal intention is fulfilled in man.

Thought of the Day:

God made two preparations concerning man. He created man in His image and according to His likeness. and he created for man a spirit in the depths of his being. Why did God create a spirit for man in the depths of his being? because God wants man to receive Him. He placed Himself before man in the form of the tree of life in order that man might receive Him and obtain Him as life

Prayer Confession:

I bless you Lord that i have a Spirit in me to Contact you always, to receive you every moment as my life and life supply, i unceasingly exercise my spirit in prayer and reading your word to experience you always.
