Greetings to God the Father, Son and Spirit, the blessed, wonderful angels (hi angels) and to all the saints in Christ. We are sons of God by inheritance and by creation. God is our originator. He is the Father of spirits, both angelic and human (Heb 12: 9). Moses described Him as the “God of the spirits of all flesh” (Num 16:22).

We were really created as spirit beings, but God decided to put our spirits into bodies of clay. The first example of this is in the creation of man when God FIRST (thanks Minister Winston) conceptualized us in His mind (Gen 1: 26) then placed in the body the spirit made in His image and likeness into a body. David agrees that God conceptualized us even before we were formed (Ps 139:16). This is an inditement against the abortionists and explains why satan had to take the fear of God out of the American society, then deceive the people into foolish issues about when is a fertilization a human being. Satan is the spirit of the destroyer and its intent is to make a wilderness of anything God creates (Isa 14:17). We hate you, satan. The blood of the innocent are on many hands! How many spirits has the enemy aborted before they fulfilled their purpose of being antiterrorit agents and replinishers in the earth? How many deliverers have been killed?

God is a spiritual being, but He Himself takes on a bodily form, just as He did when He appeared to Abraham in the plains of Mamre, but that is another issue. Job explains the concept of “spirit” in body in Job 10: 11 and 12 when he said:

 “thou hast clothed me with skin and flesh, and hast fenced me with bones and sinews, thou hast granted me life and favour, and thy visitation hath preserved my spirit”.

  • In other words, the body is the clothing for the spirit
  • It can decay and perish just like clothing.
  • The spirit is bounded by the flesh.

Heb 12: 9 and Num 16:22 teach us that we were in God and He breathed us out, just as He did to Adam. Adam was just a “lumpen”, lump of clay, until He received the breath of God. Job further confirms in Job 33: 4 that “the Spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life”. God is both our designer and lifegiver. Too deep for me. I just have to praise Him! Halelujah!

David too in Psalm 139: 16 said that God has a book in heaven in which our members (business) is written. I know this to be true because I know about the book of my life that is written from the foundations of the earth that we know. I saw the book of my life in a vision and wish I could see all of the contents. When God needs to remember the contents, the angels bring forth the respecitve book of your life and show the events on a big screen. That is why people’s lives flash before them when they are in danger of death.

God foreknows everything “before the foundation of the earth”. That is why the scriptures teach us that we were already in His mind as in Eph 1: 5 which says that:

 “…He hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love”.

We were already in Him and His design was that we should live holy and blameless in His presence and love Him, even as Adam did before the fall.

The following scriptures about the foundation of the world reveal:

  • that God has foreknowledge about us and the events of the world
  • that God is eternal (has no beginning and end)
  • is the Creator and that the earth has a foundation just like a building does (where is it?).
  • They also reveal that there are secrets and counsels of God that are yet to be revealed

These scriptures say:

“His foundation is in the holy mountains” (Psa 87:1)

 “Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth” (Ps 105:25)

 “Mine hand also hath laid the foundation of the earth” (Isa 48:13)

“that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world (Mat 13:35);

 “that the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation” (Luk 11:50);

“Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world” (Jhn 17:24);

 “For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself” (Hbr 9:26);

“Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you (1Pe 1:20)”;

“and all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world”;

“the beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world” (Rev 17:8).

These scriptures show that the events in the world today were manifested before its foundation. How does all this relate to us being sons of God? Well, He has a plan for us, breathed the plan into us, has the blueprint of our individual lives and lays claim to us.

Jeremiah attests to this in chap 1: 5 when God told him that:

“before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations“.

David also knew about this secret (Ps 139: 13-16). Verse 13 says that David was protected in the womb. Why do you think Hannah was so crazy to have a son? Why did she then hand the child over to the priest lock, stock and barrel by the time he was weaned? She asked for a child then gave him right back to the Lord because she knew that Samuel’s destiny was in God, knowing and having a friendship with Him. Vengeance was truely hers. Her adversary Penaniah had sons, allright, but we never heard of them breathing out the purpose for which they had been created. Hannah had received personal revelation about Samuel and was cooperating with God and His purposes.

Blessings and more to come another day!
