If I refer to you as god is in acknowledgment of the GOD in you. The scriptures say in Psalm 82:6 “Ye are gods for you are children of the Most High God” and Jesus said: John 10:33-36 New International Version (NIV)
33 “We are not stoning you for any good work,” they replied, “but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God.”
34 Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your Law, ‘I have said you are “gods”’[a]? 35 If he called them ‘gods,’ to whom the word of God came—and Scripture cannot be set aside— 36 what about the one whom the Father set apart as his very own and sent into the world? Why then do you accuse me of blasphemy because I said, ‘I am God’s Son’?The condition is in Romans 10:9-10 New International Version (NIV)
9 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. The power and authority we can exhibit for transformation can hindge on these bible truths and they are metaphysical in nature. Real spiritual work, we don’t have to be the same anymore we have been given tools for change but it is work. James 2:17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. So march on gods and put in that work. For some it might be immediate change but for some rebels like me it will take a lot of questioning and research but it works if you work it. Each person’s journey is different, religion will point the way but the spiritual work will lead you to the destination always with the Most High in sight..
I know many will find this hard to swallow but if you look back through time to the different religions or belief system’s their goal is to help you reach your maximum potential. To assist the practitioner through prayer, meditation and fasting the ability to tap into the unlimited universe inside of us all.
