Another thought

After the post I wrote the other day and our ladies Bible study today I got to thinking more about why it is so hard for us simple mortals to grasp some of the attributes of God. And I think it is partly because the highest level of God is not intellectual at all. We try our hardest to make Him like us when He is trying His hardest to make us more like Him. We try to intellectualize Him by our understanding, which is totally wrong. Its wrong because God is not intellectual, but spiritual, God is totally spiritual. But we are also spiritual beings because we are made in the image of God and because of  what Jesus did for us on the cross, so if God is spirit then only the spirit of man can know Him. So man is also spiritual, why is this so?? 2 Corinthians says "Anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person" you see our position has changed from bondage to heir. We have the Holy Spirit, we can understand the greatness of God if we plug into His word and strive to know Him in a personal way. Trust in what the word says that we have Kingdom living here and now but we also will have a greater Kingdom living in Heaven. That is what has been called a " near far prophecy" The Kingdom is, but not yet.

Isn't this a cool picture? Its called the," Eye of God"
