God is Reproducing Himself
What is the purpose of human life? Just as animals reproduce after their animal kind, so also humans reproduce AFTER THE GOD KIND. God is reproducing Himself through humans. As Genesis 1:26 says, "Let us make man in our IMAGE, after our LIKENESS". As King David sang, "I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy LIKENESS" (Ps. 17:15). As Job said, "All the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my CHANGE come" (Job 14:14). As John said, "now are we the SONS OF GOD, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be, but we know that, when he shall appear (Second Coming), we shall be LIKE HIM; for we shall see him as he is" (1 John 3:2). We must grow "till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a PERFECT MAN " (Eph. 4:11-13). Then "Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he CANNOT SIN, because he is born of God" (I John 3:9). "Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of INCORRUPTIBLE, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever" (1 Pet. 1:23). "That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is SPIRIT. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit" (John 3:3-8). He is INVISIBLE. "And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also GLORIFIED together" (Rom. 8:17) in the future at "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. There is a natural body, and there is a SPIRITUAL body" (1 Cor. 15:42-44).
Our Lord says humans will worship before our feet (Rev. 3:9). Therefore, He must be referring to when Christians are changed into immortal SONS OF GOD "in the twinkling of an eye" (1 Cor. 15:52). There is a spirit in man (Job 32:8) that is not in animal brains. This human spirit separates us from mere animal instinct (1 Cor. 2:11). In the same way, no man can understand spiritual knowledge except by the Holy Spirit (1 Cor. 2:11). "The Spirit (of God) itself joins with our (human) spirit, in testifying that we are the CHILDREN OF GOD: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God" (Rom. 8:16-17; NEB & KJV). "But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also QUICKEN (make immortal) your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you" (Rom. 8:11). We have been adopted into God's FAMILY (Rom. 8:15). Our Father has a very large FAMILY on earth (Eph. 3:14-15). But they are not born as spirit beings yet. At the present time, only two beings exist as God. They are God the Father (Gen. 14:19; Isa. 66:1; John 5:19) and the One who became Jesus Christ, our Creator (John 1:3,10; Eph. 3:9; 1 Cor. 10:4; Heb. 1:2). They are equals (John 5:18,26; Phil. 2:6). But since we are joint heirs with Christ, we will be glorified together with Him (Rom. 8:17). Whatever glory God the Father gave Christ, Christ will eventually give to us (John 17:11, 22). That includes the position of being Creator. We may generate eternal life ourselves (John 7:38; 4:14; 3:16; 6:47; etc.). God will "plant the heavens" (Isa. 51:16). "In thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand are there are pleasures for evermore" (Ps. 16:11).
