[M] Creation

Truth from the beginning...


26 Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth." 
27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 
28Then God blessed them, and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth." (Genesis 1:26-28 NKJV)

Created for God's image

Who man was created to be.

Adam & Eve - made in God's image - wants us to see that clearly - Dan Mohler video clip (1:06) 
Adam & Eve - made for God's image - the whole plan of God - (:38)
Adam & Eve - made for God's image - dominion - (:55)
"Likeness" in the OT - in the likeness of God he made them - Gen. 5:1
"Image" in the NT - predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son - Rom. 8:29
"Image" in the NT - transformed into the same image from glory to glory - 2 Cor. 3:18
"Image" in the NT - renewed in knowledge after the image of him who created him - Col. 3:10
"Image" in the NT - put on the new man, created after the likeness of God - Eph. 4:24
BECAUSE Jesus is the image of the Father...
     - Heb. 1:3 - the radiance of His glory - exact representation of His nature 
     - Col. 1:15 - the image of the invisible God
     - 2 Cor. 4:4 - Christ - the image of God
     - John 14:7+ - seen me - seen the Father
     - John 17:6,7 - I have manifested your name
ANYTIME that the Bible speaks of: (Is an indirect reference to the image or likeness of God)
     - Being "in Christ" - if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation - 2 Cor. 5:17 etc.
     - Being "clothed in Christ" - clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ - Rom 13:14 etc.
     - "New creation" - see 2 Cor 5:17 above - what counts is a new creation - Gal. 6:15 etc.
     - Being "baptized into Christ Jesus" - raised to newness of life - Rom. 6:4 etc.
We shall be like him - 1 John 3:2 
The list could go on and on...
