SEEN GOD...?


So this break (thanks to sallah), we had a sleep-over at a friend’s house (mega-fun). At some point we decided to see another movie (we had seen some before). After deliberating with a lot of noise, we finally settled on IMMORTAL – one bloody (literally) movie.

Unconsciously one of us observed aloud, “why is this Zeus so young?” Some went ‘yea…. That’s true’, others concentrating didn’t comment. And that was it... (this zeus was young with six pack)

Days later on my way to work, it came back to me (as usual), “who said Zeus had to be old, long white bearded, holding a staff, with his eyes flashing lightening… lol. The movies I think.
So also, God is not old, long white bearded, holding a staff, with His eyes flashing lightening, wearing a long white robe and smoke puffing out His nose… you know generally having the stern look. That is the movies ‘again’ helping your imagination. Nowhere is God described as a romance novels describe the hero or heroine.

So what does He look like....

Genesis 1:26-27
King James Version (KJV)
26 And God said, Let us make man in OUR image, after OUR likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27 So God created man in his OWN image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

It hit me, If I'm made in His image and after His likeness then...

His face is me
His face is you
His face is your husband
His face is your wife
His face is your child (ren)
His face is your boss
Yes His face is even that person you despise so much
His face is your friend, brother and sister (s)
His face is seven billion people now on earth
His face is every man, woman, boy and girl, past, present and future
His face is all the innumerable company of angles
His face is creation

Clear your head of that image you have of Him, yep you know the One and let Him show you what He truly looks like.
YOU, ME, CREATION
AND MORE

His description is in our spirits not our minds.
God is good... that is Who He is.... I love Him

31st Chain
1 John 4:8

Ps: After writing this post, I thought some more. God does not ACT like you or me, far from it. He acts like Him. Get in His word and you'll know just how He behaves. Don't judge or box him based on the way your neighbor behaves, unconsciously alot of us do that.
