1. INTRODUCTION I’ve been struggling to write this post because there is really no way to describe God, even though He is revealed in the Word. Today’s post is a follow-up to “what is the image and likeness of God?”   https://pppministries.wordpress.com/2009/12/25/what-is-the-im…ikeness-of-god/.  Here we learnt that God created Adam and Eve with an external form of flesh and blood and an internal spirit like His.  However, God’s form is not flesh and blood. Jesus told the disciples that a spirit or spiritual being does not have flesh and blood (Luke 24: 39). God revealed Himself throughout scriptures as a Spiritual Being and I was astounded that the secrets were threaded throughout Genesis to Revelation. What does Jesus mean when he told us in John 4: 24 that “God is Spirit?” or “God is a spiritual being?” He meant that: a. God has a spiritual body (and not flesh and blood) b. God has real, spiritual characteristics called His Spirit. His Spirit epitomizes all that He is. 2. GOD HAS A SPIRITUAL BODY I was instructed to write today’s post using Philippians 2: 6-8 as a springboard:

Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

The truths are presented here . through contrast: a. Jesus God was in the form of God while in heaven b. On earth he took on the form of a servant, likeness of men and  fashion of a man. Psst: I  had written previously  that  God is a spiritual being: https://pppministries.wordpress.com/2008/11/11/god-is-a-spiritual-being/ More in the upcoming posts!!!
