Potential to be Gods

The existence of many religions is confirmation of humanity’s lack of knowledge and a direct rejection of the one true God. Mankind has replaced God to their liking; this arises to confusion if not totally abandoning the faith. The aspiration to reproduce God in our image comes from the fallen nature of humankind, and eventually lead to destruction.

Not all religions lead us to the one true God and we should know that! There is no biblical passage to support it at all. Any affiliation to these religions will not determine our eternal destiny, only faith in Jesus Christ will leads us to God’s forgiveness and eternal life. “Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life” (1 John 5:12). No one comes to the Father except through the Son (John 14:6).

Jesus shocked his audience when he proclaimed his divinity and further quoting a verse about human potential of being gods. Many passages support that God is a family. For claiming to be the Son of God, the Jews accused Him of blasphemy.

Jesus responded to the accusers, English Standard Version I said, “You are gods, sons of the Most High, all of you (Psalms 82:6); If God called them gods, The authority of the Scripture is final; it cannot be set aside. The meaning is; “If, therefore, the Scripture uses the word “god” אלהים ̀elohiym as applied to magistrates, it settles the question that it is right to apply the term to those in office and authority (Matthew 5:19).

Jesus whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, “blaspheming,” because He claimed He is the Son of God. Jesus Said “If Scripture outright called human beings gods, why are you upset when I merely state that I am God’s Son?” (John 10:34-36).

Human has a potential of actually being gods! Back in the creation days God created us in His image. Jesus Christ mean; That the ultimate potential destiny of all mankind is to join the family of God. It is the magnificent and inspiring purpose for which we were created. As Jesus quoted, foreseeing our destiny reached, “I said, ‘You are gods.’” Let us all, then, be ever thankful. For it cannot get any higher than that. I claimed that we are the sons of God in the highest and nothing else.
