SONS OF GOD II

 

In my previous post SONS OF GOD I, we focused on Angels as sons of God. Angels are considered sons in the sense that they owe their existence to God, have a personal and special relationship with God, and definitely possess some key characteristics of God.

A son refers to the identity of a male offspring due to his personal and special relationship with his parent. In this post, we shall be looking at Adam as a son of God.

“The son of Methuselah, the son of Enoch, the son of Jared, the son of Mahalaleel, the son of Cainan, the son of Enos, the son of Seth, the son of Adam, the son of God”.

Luke 3:37-38

ADAM THE SON OF GOD

Adam was the son of God due to his personal and special relationship with God. When God expressed His intention to create man, He was very expressive in the kind of personality He was going to bring out, definitely, it wasn’t going to be as an angel.

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 overall the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

 

Genesis 1:26-27

This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him; male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.

Genesis 5:1-2

So God purposed to create a human being just like Himself. The word human, ‘hu’-‘man’ according to Dr Myles Munroe of blessed memories, is a hybrid word (two words joined together). Humus: earth, clay or sand and Man: spirit. Adam was a HUMUS-MAN, a spirit dwelling in a physical body, heaven in earth vessel.

Adam looked like God, it was God’s idea, he was the son of God with an earthly body to carry out his Papa’s mission on the earth. Children have always been the extensions of their parents; agents of extensions into the future. In other words, parents continue to live on through their children even after their departure from this life. Wherever your child goes, he represents you fully. Adam was an extension of God upon the earth.

‘God was duplicated in man, leaving the man with all divine attributes that would make him operate like the true son of his father. If sons of men are men, then it follows that sons of God are gods. Like, will always beget like’.
David O. Oyedepo, Releasing The Supernatural.

Just like mothers bring forth their children into this world, God also brought forth Adam into existence. When he walked through the Garden of Eden, he wasn’t taking those steps as one of the creatures of God, he was evidently the son of God. He carried the authority and power of his father to execute his daddy’s will on earth.

Adam had no iota of doubt whatsoever about his belongingness to Papa God. He carried the DNA of God in him, the all things are possible genes were are work in him. He had no fears, no inferiority, no lack, no limits.

GOD’S MANY CHILDREN

When God brought forth his first son, Adam, He was also equally able to have brought forth every other human being, there’s no impossibility with Him, but He didn’t do that. He had intended for his first born Adam to bring forth the rest of his children and that was part of why He introduced Eve, his wife.

MUTANT CHILDREN

Adam had in him the very genes of God and would transfer this same gene over to the children of God he was to bring forth. Unfortunately, this did not happen. Before he brought forth his first child, he had changed into a mutant.

A mutant is that which becomes different from others of the same kind because of a change in its genetic structure. God’s DNA in Adam became corrupt. There was a dramatic alteration in the structure of the genes of Adam. Don’t forget that Adam was a spirit living in the physical body. There was no great change in his physical structure. Any deficiency that was recorded in his physical structure later was as a result of a defect in his spirit.

ADAM’S CHILDREN

And Adam lived a hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, after his image; and called his name Seth.
Genesis 5:3

Though Adam was made in the image and likeness of God, he lost that, acquired a new one before he started bringing forth children. These children possessed the newly acquired image and likeness which their father acquired from Satan.

And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. Genesis 6:5-6

As a result, the children Adam brought forth were spiritually dead children of the devil.

Nevertheless, death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come. For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.
Romans 5:14, 17

This is the condition of all human beings: spiritual death. Would you want to be spiritually aligned to God to become his child?

Please pray this prayer out now:

‘Lord Jesus, I come to you today. I am a sinner, I cannot help myself. Forgive me of my sins. Cleanse me with your precious blood. Deliver me from sin and Satan, to serve the living God. Today, Lord Jesus, I accept you as my Lord and my Saviour. Thank you for saving me! Now I know, I am born again!’

 If you have prayed this prayer in faith, you are born again, saved, a child of God.

John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he the power to become the sons of God, even to them, that believe on his name

1John 3:1 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. As simple as it may seem to you, you are saved or born again by this prayer of faith. You have been restored to sonship. Get a bible if you don’t have one yet and start reading it for yourself. May the Holy Spirit also be your guide.

SONS OF GOD I



For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.

Romans 8:19

There are sons of God in hiding or hibernation in this world.

Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.

1John 3:1

The fact that we have the privilege to be referred to as sons of God is an explicit expression of the Father's love for us. But we can only best appreciate this conferment of the name sons of God when we come to really understand who a son of God is and what it actually means to become a son of God.

Then King Nebuchadnezzar, full of fear and wonder, got up quickly, and said to his wise men, Did we not put three men in cords into the fire? and they made answer and said to the king, True, O King. He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.

Daniel 3:24-25

King Nebuchadnezzar had some form of revelation about the son of God in the fire.

From scriptures, four personalities are referred to as the son or sons of God: Angels, Adam, Jesus Christ, and Believers. In this blog series, I shall be taking you through each of these persons and my real intention is to show you who you really are in the sight of God.

A son refers to the identity of a male offspring due to his personal and special relationship with his parent.

SONS OF GOD I: ANGELS



Angels are spirit beings and yet very real. Spirits are as real and tangible as any physical thing if not more real.

Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them.

Job 1:6

Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them to present himself before the LORD.

Job 2:1

When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?

Job 38:7

Sons of God gathered and Satan also was there. He also showed up in his capacity as a son of God. If Satan is an angel, a fallen one at that, and a son of God, then angels are sons of God in their own right. Angels are considered sons in the sense that they owe their existence to God, have a personal and special relationship with God, and definitely possess some key characteristics of God.

Then King Nebuchadnezzar, full of fear and wonder, got up quickly, and said to his wise men, Did we not put three men in cords into the fire? and they made answer and said to the king, True, O King. He answered and said, Lo, I see four men lose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God. Nebuchadnezzar spake and said, Blessed, be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, who hath sent his angel, and delivered the servants that trusted in him, and have changed the king's word, and have yielded their bodies, that they might not serve nor worship any god, except their own God.

King Nebuchadnezzar saw the son of God in the fire with the three Hebrew boys he had thrown into the fiery fire. In his continual expression of admiration towards the God of heaven, he makes plain that the son of God he referred to was an angel of God.

THEY ARE SPIRIT BEINGS

And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.

Hebrews 1:7

Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire:

Psalms 104:4

And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.

2Kings 2:11

And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.

2Kings 6:17

THEY EXCEL IN STRENGTH

Bless the LORD, ye his angels that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.

Psalms 103:20

THEY LISTEN AND ACT ON THE VOICE OF THE WORD

Bless the LORD, ye his angels that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.

Psalms 103:20

THEY ARE MINISTERS

Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to do service for the sake of them that shall inherit salvation?

Hebrews 1:14

Angels as sons of God do the pleasure of God all through their existence. As heirs of salvation, angels have the task of ministering for us. For angels to minister for you from today, you ought to possess salvation by giving your life to Jesus Christ.

Please pray this prayer out now:

‘Lord Jesus, I come to you today. I am a sinner, I cannot help myself. Forgive me of my sins. Cleanse me with your precious blood. Deliver me from sin and Satan, to serve the living God. Today, Lord Jesus, I accept you as my Lord and my Saviour. Thank you for saving me! Now I know, I am born again!’

 If you have prayed this prayer in faith, you are born again, saved, a child of God.

John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he the power to become the sons of God, even to them, that believe on his name

1John 3:1 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. As simple as it may seem to you, you are saved or born again by this prayer of faith. You have been restored to sonship. Get a bible if you don’t have one yet and start reading it for yourself.

OVERCOMING THE FIRST OBSTACLE: INERTIA

 


Why have we not applied most of the laws we were taught in physics (science) class meaningfully to our day to day lives? Could it be partly because most of the people who discovered these laws were themselves deep in academic and scientific worlds and therefore we respectfully quietly leave these laws in their science and engineering fields? But I don’t think these laws: gravity, flotation, incident and reflected rays and others are not more scientific than they are natural basic laws for humans.

Newton’s 1st law of motion: "A body remains in a state of rest or constant motion unless acted upon by an external force".

This law can perfectly apply to an author or any other field of endeavour. An author will continue to stare at his empty bookshelf until he decides that he’s had enough emptiness and then takes an action that breaks this state of inactiveness. The writer who wrote and published one book in ten years will have two books in twenty years and if he manages to remain alive doing the same thing, in the same way, will have his third book in thirty years unless he decides to do something different about his situation. 


I published and launched my first book in 2009. Some external forces acted upon me (complacency, disappointment at the sales rate, ignorance, the thought of total failure and other related factors) and placed me into peaceful rest, never to resurrect my writing career again. 

In 2019, I listened to Dr Myles Munroe on How to write your book and publish it. That started a new fire about writing in me. In 2020, I stumbled on Joanna Penn, then Tom Corson-Knowles and several others. These two persons were like the two great wings of an eagle that carried me out of my death bed (writing inactiveness). Once again I was acted upon by these external forces to break that state of author inactivity. 

In June 2020 I started a title, by November 2020, I had successfully self-published my book BEWARE OF FOOLS (Escaping the Web of Wrong Association) on Amazon in Kindle and print book formats. You may check out more about this book on this link: https://amzn.to/35SxUQD I concurrently did the same with my first book, SEASONAL DYNAMICS https://amzn.to/38WLUKV. A body indeed remains in a state of rest or constant motion unless acted upon by an external force indeed.

You might still be dreaming of writing your first book, actually writing at a very slow pace or might currently be headed for a certain direction now. For you to experience any kind of change at any of these stages as an author, you must be acted upon by an external force. This external force could come in the form of motivation by simply looking at the several books J. F. Penn or Tom Corson-Knowles have on display on their website. 


Motivation could also come to you through reading books that speak to authors, listening to podcasts on author careers, taking a course in authoring and several others. Knowledge: updated how-to-do information will also do you much good as an author. If you can write one complete book, then you can as well write 2, and 4, and then 8, 16, and even 20. You will keep writing until you are acted upon by an external force (self-doubt, fear of sudden success or a feeling of complacency).

I trust you will be encouraged by this post: OVERCOMING INERTIA to arise and do what you ought to do to become relevant in this life. Contact me and let me know what you are able to do after reading my post. Feel free to leave a comment below in the comment box.
