pictures of God

Wisdom and Understanding say

” For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead…”

Romans 1:20

Literally, everything God creates testifies of His power and glory. Those things God did not make, the corruption we experience on a daily basis, speak of Lucifer’s rebellion and sin. Therefore, either you are seeing a picture of God or you are seeing a picture of the Devil.

Random chance is an illusion

Many want us to believe we are products of random chance. They say we are an “accident” of nature with no special meaning or destiny. Evolutionists loudly proclaim the “fact” that their ancestors are ape-like creatures. However, the truth is that we are proof of intelligent design, created by an all knowing, all powerful God whose very nature is love. Compared to the theory of evolution, I’ll take special creation every time.

Pictures of God

When we conform to God’s will, we become pictures of God. When we love, create a family, or say a kind word to another human being, we “manifest” God in what we do. In short, we become pictures of God for all the world to see.

Once we understand that YHWH speaks to us this way, then a world of seeming chaos comes into focus. Acts of charity, kindness, and heroism are all pictures of God, while acts of brutality, selfishness, and cowardice are all pictures of Satan.

God is good and so our His pictures

As we look at the things in life that are just, pure and lovely, we see God. Therefore, if we want to know God better, we can learn a lot from what He does through us. The family, for instance, is the fundamental component of most peoples lives and as such, it is one of the major pictures of God.

In our families, we have three main parts. The man, who is the head of the family, the woman, who is the mother of the family, and children. As the fundamental building block of the human race, God is showing us something very near and dear to His heart through this picture.

Revealing the family of God

God has been revealing to me more and more about His own family. My Father does this by giving me examples of this through my family. I have come to understand, through revelation, that God’s family consists of Himself, Seraphim, and His children. God is our Father, Seraphim are, as it were, our mothers, and we, who are made into the image and likeness of YHWH, are His children.

There is only one God and there are no gods beside Him. Therefore Seraphim are created beings just like God created Eve out of Adam’s rib. The children of God, or those that He creates through our unions, are not small gods either. This is where most false religions get off course, for they usually believe that we are divine, but only God is divine. We are not.

The image and likeness of YHWH

However, when God fills us and we allow Him to manifest through us, we become the image and likeness of YHWH. This is what Jesus was to those who met him, God manifest in the flesh. Jesus is the express image of the unseen creator and the ultimate expression of God through a human being. Literally, when you looked in Christ’s eyes you saw God looking back. That is why never a man spake as he did. This is also why when Jesus said, “Lazarus come forth!’ he did.

Seraphim are, however, co-creators with God, not by virtue of their own power or might, but because they are counselors of the Most High. Our Lord consults with them and they work with Him on all His major creations.

The spirit of wisdom, understanding and knowledge

When God wanted to fashion the Tabernacle in the wilderness, He lent three of His Seraphs to assist those tasked with that great work.

“See, I have called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah: And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship,”

Exodus 31:2,3

Again, God lent Solomon the spirit of wisdom and understanding saying,

And God said unto him, Because thou hast asked this thing, and hast not asked for thyself long life; neither hast asked riches for thyself, nor hast asked the life of thine enemies; but hast asked for thyself understanding to discern judgment; Behold, I have done according to thy words: lo, I have given thee a wise and an understanding heart; so that there was none like thee before thee, neither after thee shall any arise like unto thee.”

1 Kings 3:11,12

And,

“And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding exceeding much, and largeness of heart, even as the sand that is on the sea shore.”

1 Kings 4:24

Seraphs are God’s counselors

The reason that Solomon was so wise is that the Seraphs of Wisdom and Understanding, two of the seven eyes of the Lamb of God spoken of in the Book of Revelation, rested upon him. The “us” that worked with God to lay the foundations of this cosmos gave Solomon abilities far beyond what normal men possess.

Thus, almost everything about Solomon conformed to pictures of God. When the Queen of Sheba came to see Solomon’s court she exclaimed,

“Howbeit I believed not the words, until I came, and mine eyes had seen it: and, behold, thehalf was not told me: thy wisdom and prosperity exceedeth the fame which I heard.”

1 Kings 10:7

Wisdom and Understanding show us pictures of God

In conclusion, no man can come to the Father except through Jesus Christ. We can know nothing of God except it be given to us through His Holy Spirit. Natural minded people cannot see God because God is supernatural and must be known through our spirits. The pictures of God that I see are given to me, not by some special ability I possess, but through His grace because I believe.

Finally, man shall not live by bread alone, but by everything that proceeds out of the mouth of God. The pictures of God that we see all around us, speak of our amazing Father who is the eternal Godhead, surround by His Seraphim who never cease to cry ‘Holy, Holy, Holy’ day and night. We have entered the time of the revelation of God’s family and that is why we understanding who Seraphs are. Moreover, only seraphs can see other seraphs and we know them because we are like them. Amen.

Wisdom and Understanding used to dwell with God in the sides of the north, on the mount of the congregation, on the other side of a lake just like this.
