MANIFESTATION OF GOD IN A HUMAN BEING
1Ti. 3:16 Beyond all question, the mystery of godliness is great: He appeared in a
body, was vindicated by the Spirit, was seen by angels, was preached among the
nations, was believed on in the world, was taken up in glory.
God manifested in the man Jesus Christ. How did God do this?
Jn. 6:27 Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life,
which the Son of Man will give you. On him God the Father has placed his seal of
Jn. 6:32 Jesus said to them, “I tell you the truth, it is not Moses who has given you
the bread from heaven, but it is my Father who gives you the true bread from heaven.
Jn. 6:33 For the bread of God is he who comes down from heaven and gives life to
God manifests Himself in a human being by feeding the person with bread from
heaven (the bread of God). Who did God send from heaven to the world? It is the
living bread. God gave to Jesus Christ this bread. Since the bread is alive, the bread
spoke through the mouth of Jesus Christ. The bread of God is the Spirit of God.
Jn. 2:19 Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three
Jn. 2:20 The Jews replied, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and you
are going to raise it in three days?”
Jn. 2:21 But the temple he had spoken of was his body.
Here again we see God speaking through Jesus Christ. The Spirit of God clearly
referred to the man Jesus as the temple in which He dwelt.
Mt. 27:46 About the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lama
sabachthani?” — which means, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”
While Jesus Christ hung on the cross, the Spirit of God moved away from his body,
and Jesus cried out in a loud voice. At that point, Jesus became a mere and helpless
man. He was now clearly a sin offering; he became sin, and God cannot be in the
presence of sin. This shows that the man Jesus was separate from God who was in
him. But after Jesus was glorified, God would never again be separate from Jesus
Christ. Jesus and God are one or united forever.
In the beginning
He. 2:6 But there is a place where someone has testified: “What is man that you are
mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?
He. 2:7 You made him a little [Or him for a little while] lower than the angels; you
crowned him with glory and honour.
In Heb 2:7, we see that in the beginning God made man in such a way that for a little
while he would be lower than the angels. After the little while, man would rise up to
become exactly like God Himself.
Is. 14:12 How you have fallen from heaven, O morning star, son of the dawn! You
have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations!
Is. 14:13 You said in your heart, “I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above
the stars of God; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, on the utmost heights
of the sacred mountain.
Is. 14:14 I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most
Apparently, shortly after God created man, Lucifer saw that the newly created man
had the potential to soon become greater than him. This must have aroused jealousy
in him. So, he said in his heart, “I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will
make myself like the Most High.”
Ge. 3:4 “You will not surely die,” the serpent said to the woman.
Ge. 3:5 “For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will
be like God, knowing good and evil.”
How could Lucifer raise his throne above the stars of God (mankind)? The only way
was to preventing mankind from actualizing the potential to become like God. So,
Lucifer went to work. He lied to mankind that the way to rise to the level of God was
by rebelling against God’s word. Mankind accepted the lie and lost the potential to
become like God.
Ge. 2:8 Now the LORD God had planted a garden in the east, in Eden; and there he
put the man he had formed.
Ge. 2:9 And the LORD God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground — trees
that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the
tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
God is the tree of life. The bread of God or the Holy Spirit is the fruit of the tree of life.
The way to become like God is to feed and continue to feed on the fruit of the tree of
life (the bead of God).
Ge. 3:22 And the LORD God said, “The man has now become like one of us, knowing
good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the
tree of life and eat, and live forever.”
Ge. 3:23 So the LORD God banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground
from which he had been taken.
Ge. 3:24 After he drove the man out, he placed on the east side of the Garden of
Eden cherubim and a flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way to the
tree of life.
Shortly after mankind ate the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil, God banished
man from His presence, so that it was no longer possible for mankind to eat the bread
He. 2:9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, now crowned
with glory and honour because he suffered death, so that by the grace of God he
might taste death for everyone.
Jesus Christ was also made a little lower than angels, just like Adam; in fact, he is the
new Adam. But instead of falling like the previous Adam, he rather rose up to become
exactly like God. All that Jesus Christ did to merit that was to make sure that nothing
separated him from God.
He. 10:5 Therefore, when Christ came into the world, he said: “Sacrifice and offering
you did not desire, but a body you prepared for me;
In order for mankind to eat the bread of God, God had to create a new man (Adam)
for that purpose. The new man is Jesus Christ. How did God prepare Jesus to receive
the Holy Spirit? Being a new creation (an Adam), Jesus Christ had not eaten the fruit
of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (sin). So, he had the potential to
become like God; He could eat the bread of God.
Ge. 2:7 The LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into
his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.
After God created Adam, He breathed into Adam His Holy Spirit, but not the fullness of
the Spirit. The fullness of the Spirit is the bread of God. In order for a human being to
receive the fullness of the Spirit, s/he has to pass a qualifying examination. God does
not just promote a human being above the angels without justification. Before ever
any human being could be allowed to eat the fruit of the tree of life, s/he must be
tested to determine faith in God. Adam and Eve failed the test.
Nu. 13:1 The LORD said to Moses,
Nu. 13:2 “Send some men to explore the land of Canaan, which I am giving to the
Nu. 13:3 So at the LORD’s command Moses sent them out from the Desert of Paran.
All of them were leaders of the Israelites.
Nu. 13:25 At the end of forty days they returned from exploring the land.
Nu. 13:27 They gave Moses this account: “We went into the land to which you sent
us, and it does flow with milk and honey! Here is its fruit.
Nu. 13:30 Then Caleb silenced the people before Moses and said, “We should go up
and take possession of the land, for we can certainly do it.”
Nu. 13:31 But the men who had gone up with him said, “We can’t attack those
people; they are stronger than we are.”
The Israelites got close to entering the Promised Land. But, first of all, God had to test
their faith, to see if they were qualified to enter the land. They failed woefully. (See
Mt. 3:16 As soon as Jesus was baptised, he went up out of the water. At that moment
heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and lighting
Mt. 3:17 And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love;with him I am
Mt. 4:1 Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert to be tempted by the devil.
2Co. 1:21 Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed
2Co. 1:22 set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit,
guaranteeing what is to come.
As soon as Jesus Christ was baptized in water, God anointed him, set His seal of
ownership on him, and put the Holy Spirit in his heart as a deposit, guaranteeing what
is to come. At this point, Jesus Christ was now in the same spiritual state in which
Adam and Eve were before they were tested. In Gen 2:7, the breath of life that God
breathed into Adam was the same Holy Spirit that Jesus received immediately after
baptism in water. Jesus was then tested by Satan, just as Adam and Eve were tested,
to see if he would qualify to receive "what is to come". "What is to come" is the fruit
of the tree of life, the bread of God.
Lk. 4:13 When the devil had finished all this tempting, he left him until an opportune
Lk. 4:14 Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit, and news about him
spread through the whole countryside.
Having passed the test, Jesus Christ returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit.
Great news about him suddenly spread through the whole countryside. Obviously,
Jesus Christ received the bread of life after he passed the test.
Manifestation of God in a Christian
Ep. 2:13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near
through the blood of Christ.
Ro. 5:10 For if, when we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the
death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through
2Co. 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the
new has come!
2Co. 5:18 All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave
us the ministry of reconciliation:
2Co. 5:19 that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men’s
sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation.
2Co. 5:20 We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his
appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.
Sin made human beings to become enemies of God, because sin is manifestation of
the spirit of Satan. But God reconciled mankind to Himself through the blood that
Jesus Christ shed on the cross. A lot of people ask, “Why didn’t God just forgive
mankind? Why must Jesus die in order for us to be forgiven?” The answer has to do
with angels. God must justify whatever He does with man. He is the righteous judge
of the universe.
Even though God has reconciled mankind to Himself on a general basis, each
individual still has to accept or reject the reconciliation.
Mt. 4:17 From that time on Jesus began to preach, “Repent, for the
kingdom of heaven is near.”
Reconciliation to God begins with repentance. Repentance means to reject sin. Sin is
what alienated us from the tree of life. Now Jesus Christ has brought the tree of life
near to us and only sin can prevent us from eating the fruit of the tree of life. So, we
need to reject sin in its entirety.
Ac. 2:38 Peter replied, “Repent and be baptised, every one of you, in the name of
Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy
Following repentance, the person that wants to eat the fruit of the tree of life must be
baptized into Jesus Christ, just like Jesus was baptized in the river Jordan. If any form
of baptism was administered to you before your decision to repent, you need to be
properly baptized in water (Acts 19:1-5).
Ro. 6:3 Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptised into Christ Jesus were
baptised into his death?
2Co. 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the
new has come!
Through the baptism, you declare your old self crucified with Jesus Christ. As you rise
up from the water of baptism, you reckon yourself to be a new creation. The old you
that followed the sinful way of the old Adam is dead and buried in the baptismal
water; a new you has emerged to follow the righteousness of Jesus Christ. You are
Mt. 6:31 So do not worry, saying, `What shall we eat?’ or `What shall we drink?’ or
`What shall we wear?’
Mt. 6:32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows
that you need them.
Mt. 6:33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be
given to you as well.
Col. 3:1 Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things
above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.
Col. 3:2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.
Now that you are born again, focus all your attention on getting the kingdom of God;
to get the kingdom of God is to eat the fruit of the tree of life, the bread of God. Do
not let things of this world bother you, because when you eat the bread of God, the
things of this world will be yours as well. To eat the bread of God means to become
just like Jesus Christ was during his earthly ministry. Is it possible, you ask? That was
the same dilemma the Israelites faced when they realized that they must conquer the
Anaks in order to occupy the Promised Land.
Mt. 19:26 Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God
all things are possible.”
2Ti. 2:20 In a large house there are articles not only of gold and silver, but also of
wood and clay; some are for noble purposes and some for ignoble.
2Ti. 2:21 If a man cleanses himself from the latter, he will be an instrument for noble
purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.
If we can completely rid our lives of sin, we can receive the fruit of the tree of life just
by asking God for it.
Mt. 4:10 Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: `Worship the Lord
your God, and serve him only.’“
Mt. 4:11 Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him.
The manner in which Jesus conquered Satan’s temptation shows us how to cleanse
our hearts from sin. Command the spirit of sin to go away from you; then confess
God's word that counteracts that sin. For example:
You spirit of sexual immorality, I overcome you by the blood of Jesus Christ
that cleanses me from all unrighteousness. You evil spirit of sexual immorality,
the Holy Spirit of the Most High drive you away from my life in the name of
Jesus Christ. In the mighty name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I offer my body as a
living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God (Rom 12:1 ).
Mt. 4:2 After fasting for forty days and forty nights, he was hungry.
Mt. 4:3 The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these
stones to become bread.”
The Israelites that explored the Promised Land were tested for forty days, after which
they gave the result of the test with their own mouths. Jesus was in the wilderness for
40 days, after which his heart condition was displayed by Satan tempting him. It
seems like 40 days is the period of testing, during which a person must consistently
display faith in God, in order for God to fulfill His promise. I think that if a completely
rids her/his heart of sin and remains pure for forty days, and in that period continues
to ask God to give her/him the bread of life, God will give.
He. 10:19 Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place
by the blood of Jesus.
God is the tree of life and the Holy Spirit is the fruit of the tree of life. Just as the
Israelites ate manna every day, as they moved from Egypt to the Promised Land, a
person that is transforming into the image of God needs to receive the Holy Spirit
from God every day. In order to spiritually enter into the presence of God, we need to
plead the blood of Jesus Christ.
Holy Father God Almighty, I plead the blood of Jesus Christ as I come into your
presence in the name of Jesus Christ.
When you spend time with God, the most important thing that you will ask for is the
gift of the Holy Spirit (Lk 11:13). Also ask God to strengthen you with power in your
inner being through the Holy Spirit (Eph 3:17). You need to be anointed with the Holy
Spirit and with power every morning, so that you could go about doing good (Act
Ro. 2:7 To those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honour and
immortality, he will give eternal life.
Persist in being with God every day and in receiving His Holy Spirit and in keeping sin
away from your life and in growing in righteousness through the Holy Spirit. You will
surely obtain the bread of God.
