A Higher Calling
♦ 1Corinthians 6:3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?
More in store for mankind:
♦ Hebrews 2:5 For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak. 6 But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man that thou visitest him? 7 Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands: 8 Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him.
The actual physical form mankind is destined to take is vague, but evidence exists that if we do look like the Christ as is clearly stated in 2 Corinthians 3:17 above, we will probably have red skin, white hair, glowing eyes, and a very loud voice as can be found in these verses:
♦ Revelation 1:12 And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; 13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. 14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; 15 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.
And then there is this:
♦ “The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.”
♦ “Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward, and the spirit of the beast that goeth downward to the earth?” (Ecclesiastes 3:21)
It is this truth, which the church hides from mankind using it to keep the congregations under the iron-fisted rule of the pulpit, while crying that they are lacking faith. If mankind knew of and believed in its true destiny, even in human form, the power would be endless.

The Wonder of Humanity
Throughout history, the world has witnessed a side of man that shows he is not just higher than the animals, but higher than what his known physical and mental restrictions should allow. Is mankind endowed with special powers as a race, or are just a chosen few blessed? Do these incredible powers come from an outside source or do they lay dormant within?
Science tells us man is a physical being, but a higher animal than the creatures he supposedly evolved from, just a couple of rungs up some imaginary ladder. The church tells us man is just fire-fodder, with the opportunity to escape that fate if he conforms to a set of standards dictated by that particular church. Education is stuck somewhere in between, teaching what comes out of the debate between the church and science.
History shows us that mankind seems to be something completely removed from the orthodox view. The Bible describes mankind as having a place in the scheme of things mostly ignored by the world’s mainstream, but recognized by the facts. Consider the ramifications of these biblical edicts:
Man is a Mirror Image of the Gods
Why is man so different from the other life forms on the planet? Why is he so far up that imaginary ladder? And, how can certain people exhibit such extraordinary powers that are never seen in other animals?
♦ Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
Man looks like and acts like the Elohiym or, at least, that’s how it started.
Man Can Become Immortal
Is this brief life span of just a few decades the whole of each person’s life? Is there a real proverbial fountain of youth?
♦ Genesis 3:22 And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:
Man is so much like the Elohiym that if allowed to partake of a particular substance, he would indeed become eternal.
♦ Genesis 3:24 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.
The Elohiym had to physically prevent mankind from becoming eternal.
How Close to the Gods?
Are humans just lucky, evolutionary mutants or, worse yet, hapless animals being used as pawns in some higher spiritual game, destined to fry in some eternal oven after the game is over? Or, is the true nature of man higher than his own imagination takes him? Is mankind’s real power and destiny suppressed by every form of conditioning society can employ to bury it?
♦ John 10:34 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?
As the human Jesus says, in the past he has told men that they are gods.
♦ Psalms 82:6 I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High. 7 But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.
As the God of Moses and as the Christ, Yhovah makes clear the true nature of mankind.
Humans are gods!
