In Genesis 1:27, God created man in His own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. In Genesis 2:7, the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. Many times we quote these two scriptures over and over, but how many really understand the significance of the two? When God created man (meaning of no a gender), it was in the mind of God (the Spirit of God). He was thinking about a new innovation, a new creation, someone He could create in the nature and essence of Himself. In other words, He wanted to plant himself all over the world until everywhere we go people would see Him and not us. He wanted us to represent Him. So when God thought it was good to make man in His image, He began to shape man into a spirit living being to dominate in the earth. Man is a spirit, he has a soul, and he lives in a physical body. (1 Thess. 23)
Because of the fallen nature of man, Adam and Eve committed high treason against God; since then, every person born into the world was born into sin. Nothing we did of our own, but the attributes and the things we do that goes against the Word of God brings about the sin nature; we’re thinking and doing things in a sinful way knowingly and unknowingly.
Jesus paid an awesome price when He went to the cross to die for all humanity; therefore, you don’t have to remain in a sin nature if you receive Him as your Lord and Personal Savior. Jesus didn’t die for a certain group of people or different religions, Jesus died for the World (John 3:16) that all might be saved. Salvation is deliverance from everything that goes against God’s word, and there is no true deliverance without Salvation. Jesus is the Savior of the world. He is the Corner Stone the builders rejected. He’s the one holding every part of this world together. He said if my people will humble themselves and pray; then He will heal the land. Pray for what? Pray that all men will come into repentance and into the knowledge and saving grace of Jesus Christ. Jesus is the alpha and the omega, He’s the beginning and the end, and deliverance is in Him, not in the human knowledge of this world or mankind.
There’s no deliverance without Salvation. Romans 10: 9-10 says, “If thou would confess with thou mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in thine heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, thou shalt be “Saved”. For with the Heart man believes unto righteousness and with the mouth, confession is made unto Salvation.” This is a twofold requirement. You have to believe it in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, and you have to open your mouth and confess it. Believing and confessing take place by faith. When you believe and confess, immediately an inward (spirit man) changes into the image of God’s Spirit. There’s nothing missing and nothing broken when you have Him: no sickness, no disease, no lack, and etc., but you must get in Him by giving Jesus your life today and allowing Him to transform your thinking with the Word of God.
