Many theologians and church leaders say that God is a spirit
and thus does not have a body and does not really have gender. That he is only
being “anthropomorphic” in representing himself as a male person, to us mortals.
This would amount to God,
"misrepresenting himself." This doctine is horribly wrong.
THIS IS FALSE. God is
completely ABLE to be BOTH a spirit and a male person. It is NOT
true, as these theologians are effectively saying, that God is speaking falsely and misrepresenting himself throughout the
entire Bible. And further, that the Bible is obviously, massively, wrong.
God is completely truthful.
Exodus 31:18 And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an
end of communing with him upon Mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the FINGER of God.
Obviously, God has a FINGER.
Exodus 33: 21-23 And the LORD said (to Moses), Behold,
there is a place by me, and thou shalt stand upon a rock: And it shall come
to pass, while my glory passeth by, that I will put thee in a clift
of the rock, and will cover thee with my HAND while I pass by: And I will take away mine HAND, and thou shalt
see my BACK PARTS: but my FACE shall not be seen.
Obviously God has a face, a hand, and back parts, and, of
course, a finger.
Bible is correct, the religious “experts” are dead wrong.
This is the same situation when Jesus walked this earth, he and the Scribes and Pharisees
were constantly at odds! The situation has NOT changed!
Revelation 4:2 -- And
immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one SAT on the throne.
5:1 And I saw in the RIGHT HAND of him that SAT
on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals. Plainly
God is seated on his thrown and has a book in his right hand. Yes, God does have a body!
Some will introduce a “red herring”
in that there are several Bible verses where God speaks metaphorically as though he has wings.
Such as, Exodus 19:4: Ye have seen what I did
unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto myself.
And Ruth 2:12: The LORD recompense thy work, and
a full reward be given thee of the LORD God of Israel, under whose wings thou art come to trust.
know he is speaking non-literally from Jesus’ plain words in John 14:8-9:
Philip saith unto him, Lord, show us the Father,
and it sufficeth us.
Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time
with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip?
he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest
thou then, Show us the Father?
Plainly Jesus did not have wings, so neither does the heavenly Father.
It is clear that Jesus’ body accurately represents the Father’s body, and we believers will one day see the Father.
Thus, God is a straight male.
See Rev 22:4 also.
Hebrews 1:3, tells us
Jesus Christ is the express image of his (God’s) person. In slang, he’s
a “dead ringer” to God.
The Greek word underlying "image" is "charakter." This is the ONLY
place in the Bible it is used.
and exact copy, in this context.
God MUST BE a male person!
If we consider 1 Corinthians 15:35-50 we see that in the resurrection we will be spirits,
with spirit bodies, AND be in God’s image:
God DOES have a body!
But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and
with what body do they come?
fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die:
And that which thou sowest,
thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other
But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body.
All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind
of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds.
There are also celestial bodies, and bodies
terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another.
There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the
moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory.
So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in
corruption; it is raised in incorruption:
It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness;
it is raised in power: It is sown a natural body; it is
raised a spiritual body.
is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.
And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam
was made a quickening spirit.
that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.
The first man is of the earth, earthy; the second man is
the Lord from heaven.
is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.
And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall
also bear the image of the heavenly.
this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
Plainly, being a spirit does NOT prevent God from having
is a terrible heresy, sin, and outrageous insult to God, for theologians to hold this view -- that God has
Some hundred plus years of
Darwinian evolution have fooled many people into thinking the Bible is wrong in many places.
But now we have the stunning, side by side, comparison
of our own painstakingly made high tech world, AND God’s painstakingly made molecular, biological, high tech world.
Realize that atoms are atoms.
The oxygen, hydrogen, carbon, etc., atoms, in living things are exactly the same
as those atoms in non-living things.
obey the laws of physics, the same way.
God specially created this universe, including us. This is obvious!
Continuing investigation of nature with better and better, high tech tools, always show nature to
be much much, much more intricate and wonderful than we ever imagined.
The Bible is exactly right about special creation, after all, and we can
place the utmost confidence in the plain teaching of Scripture that God is indeed a straight male person.
God is HE,
Israel is SHE.
Christ, God’s Son, and God in his own right, is HE.
His Bride, known as the Church, is SHE.
God is a straight male, and is the very definition of manhood.
Womanhood is that personage,
which is THE compliment to God's masculine being, and to real men, too. These, both, together,
are critical in showing that God is a straight male.
Together, a married man and woman are the complete image of God.
