I Said You Are Gods

Description

Many will readily accept the truth of Scripture that we are Sons of God. They are all right, comfortable and can identify with that. Yet, it is another matter to accept that here and the passage in Psalms, state clearly that men are gods.

The Jews replied, ‘We are not going to stone You for a good act, but for blasphemy, because You, a mere Man, make Yourself [out to be] God.’ Jesus answered, ‘Is it not written in your Law, I said, You are gods? [Ps 82:6] So men are called gods [by the Law], men to whom God's message came--and the Scripture cannot be set aside or cancelled or broken or annulled—'”

(John 10: 33-35, AMP)

 

Here, we see the Pharisees accuse Jesus of blasphemy for declaring he made himself out to be God. Jesus recalled the words in Psalms and replied, “Is it not written in your Law, I said, You are gods?” I’ve talked with many Christians who struggle to believe this profound truth. Many will readily accept the truth of Scripture that we are Sons of God. They are all right, comfortable and can identify with that. Yet, it is another matter to accept that here and the passage in Psalms, state clearly that men are gods. 

In Genesis, we read that God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness…” God went on to bless us and said, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” David writes in Psalms, “What is man that You take thought of him, And the son of man that You care for him? Yet You have made him a little lower than God, And You crown him with glory and majesty! You make him to rule over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet.”

Child of God, I encourage you to stand on the truth of God’s Word. Believe and receive your true identity; first, as Sons of God, and secondly, as gods made in His image and likeness with His power and authority to rule the earth. Decide today to become the man God intended you to be. Be like Him and be godly!


Father, thank you for the truth and power of your Word. I believe and receive your living Word that defines who I am. Holy Spirit, help me live according to God’s Word, that I may 7fulfill His perfect will for my life by living in faith. Through the blood of Jesus and in the name of Jesus I pray, amen.
