A 'man' ~ is the Spirit of God ~ "the Father" ~ embodied! That is what a 'man' is, whether we be male or female. Every child that has ever been born on Planet Earth ~ has been God ~ the Father in the infant stage of development! And should we function AS the Father ~ we take upon ourselves the likeness of the Father. It is this likeness that is the Christ! This was why Jesus asked His disciples ~ 'whom do men say that I the son of man am'? Peter said 'thou art the Christ ~ the son of the living God'. Peter thought Jesus was referring to Himself, and Jesus thought Peter understood the question. But Peter failed to realize that Jesus was referring to every human being on Earth ~ male or female! Peter had no idea that 'man' and God were One! Each one of us is an embodiment of the 'Spirit of God' ~ the Father! There is ONLY the Father ~ He is the "I" within every one! No matter who you are looking at ~ you are actually looking at the Father ~ the Son of God! Every 'man' on Earth ~ whether we be male or female ~ is the 'Son of God' (the Father) embodied! (In the likeness of God ~ created He 'man' ~ male and female created He them) And through procreation ~ they bring forth children AFTER their kind! Children of God and children of 'men' ~ are One and the same! Creating the organisms known as 'man' ~ was Gods way of creating God's IN PERPETUITY! But only when we realize that God ~ (the Father) ~ is the "I" within us, ~ can we function As Gods (as sons and daughters of God ~ (as Christ's!) Then ~ through faith in this truth ~ we too can function AS the Father ~ (as the Christ) ~ as did He who was known as 'Jesus'! Our faith will no longer lie in HIM 'hearing' and 'answering' our prayers ~ it will now lie in our faith in 'being' the Father individualized! Then ~ through faith in 'being' God individualized ~ we can do as Job said (Job22-28) ~ 'thou shalt decree a thing and it shall be established unto you'! No longer will we simply pray 'to' God ~ we will then begin to function AS God!
