The Irresistible Kingdom – Seek First The Kingdom

By Pastor Juliana T Akinbami

1. And Man Became A living being. 

When God created Adam, it was a shadow of what was in heaven – God breathed into Adam he became a living soul made with God’s imagery and abilities
God is in heaven, and He created man in His image and likeness to be here on earth
He is Spirit, and we are Spirit – a corresponding reality between heaven and earth.

Genesis 2:7 – He creates Adams body – formed Adam and breathed into him so he became a living being.

For the image and likeness of God to function on the earth a physical body had to be made.

When God created Adam, it was a shadow of what was in heaven – God breathed into Adam he became a living soul in the image of God and with God’s abilities.
So, whatever Adam called an animal, that was it’s name.

Genesis 2: 19 ]Adam to see what he would call them. And whatever Adam called each living creature, that was its name. He became like God on the earth

Psalm 82:I said, “You are gods,
And all of you are children of the Most High.

This is the reality of this being called me and you.
YOU BECAME A LIVING BEING. God gave you breath.
You are not ordinary – you are created out of a spiritual substance that is God. You are supernatural. This is our reality.
We are made in the image of God therefore we must treat our bodies with the same level of respect as we would God.

God planned your existence. It does not matter how you came to this earth you are not illegitimate. If you are here God planned your life and you are special

Psalm 139: 13 For You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.
15 My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.
And in Your book they all were written,
The days fashioned for me,
When as yet there were none of them

Take some time to bless God for creating you.
Declare, “God planned for me to be here”.
There are angels assigned to ensure that you fulfill your life purpose – thank God for these angels that God told to watch over you wow. Psalm 91:10-12.
Thank God for His thinking process when He created you and your family. He thought of every detail- the look, the organs, the hair, the colour of skin every minute detail He thought it through. Thank God for this wonderful being.
After He was done with a great sense of pride, God looked at you and said very Good Genesis 1:31.
You, my friend, are fearfully and wonderfully made by God. Express your gratitude to God for creating you like Him.
You are special because you are like him.
But there is more, dear friend – God is pleased to share His life with you. It is called Zoe. God wants you and I to be partakers of His divine nature. He wants us to live as Himself on the earth.
Thank God, who loves you so much and has poured Himself into you.
Give thanks to God, who considered your future before you were formed.
He saw the end and was and is filled with so much love for you. He said to you, “You have a wonderful future with a prosperous, happy ending” Psalm 37:37.

I don’t know what you are facing today, but I want you to know that it is nothing compared to the God in you.
Let Him know that you trust Him.
Thank God because you were worth creating to Him. God wants you to know that you have so much worth and value before Him. That was why He sent Jesus to die on the cross and reconcile you back to Him.
Say to yourself, “I am worth it” I am worth the love of God. He loves me.
He made me in His image. I am worthy
It’s not about what I can do – I am worthy
Yes, I have flaws, and yes, I have made mistakes, but I am enough, nothing more, nothing less
God loves me in this state of being me.
I will become the fullness of who I am, which is God in me. Amen.

Jesus loves me

You know what? I cannot continue. The power and presence of God is heavy. I will continue next week. Enjoy His presence.

Just know that this is who God created, the original man. But the fall disrupted that. However, Christ has come so that in union with Him, we can once again manifest as God on the earth.
Ah, we continue next week. It is a journey.
