The flesh of man
1 Corinthians 15:39 -
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
One of the greatest manifestations of God's greatness is to watch a birth. It is beautiful when one studies how from a cell a being is born. We see man is so different from one another yet all are born in the same way from a single cell. One should study the stages of a child in the womb of its mother, it is just awesome. When my wife was conceived with my daughter I had registered on an internet site named http://www.baby.com, the site would regularly update on every stage of the child in the womb, I just loved it.
It is amazing how accurate God is that every process is perfect and results just excellent. But we see sometimes in odd cases we have deformed children or children with 2 heads or abnormal body growth. Is it that God also does make mistakes? Also how do children inherit sicknesses or skills from parents?
To understand this we need to understand today's message. If we really understand and master today's message we can overcome all sickness, health problems, and have life like which man did not experience since thousand s of years.
It is from just a since human cell that the different organs and parts of the human body is formed. It is amazing to know that we do not need the human egg, for every cell in our body knows every information needed to grow into a full human being.
Yes, from the cell of or hair to our blood cell, to cells in our saliva has all the information required to form our whole body. Even though all this information is in every cell yet they take their own roles and form the various parts of the body when a child grows from a single cell.
The details of every part of a human body, its functioning, design, relations with other parts all is in our DNA. Not only man but all living beings have a DNA and it is due to the DNA one is different from another.
Man did not come from monkey or ape for the DNA does not mutilate or majorly change permanently. Since thousands of years there is no great permanent change in human or any other creation. Mix breeds are formed when 2 DNA are fused to form another DNA, but there is a limitation of mix breeding for DNA with high differences cannot fuse, thus for man to evolve from apes would require apes to have relation with another animal by which the fusion of both their DNAs would cause the DNA of man. Science shows such DNA mutilations has never happened and is not possible in a natural environment and continue naturally.
DNA of all living beings when seen from a bird's eye view is just simply instructions having sentences, chapters and books. The books are call chromosomes. Each animal or being has varying number of chromosomes and it is this design that differentiates each from another.
Having more or less chromosomes does not make a being superior or inferior but having the exact chromosomes. A donkey has 62 chromosomes and a lion has 38 chromosomes so we see it has nothing to do with the numbers, what matters is the design. Man has 22pairs of chromosomes and 2 sex chromosomes.
The Lord taught me how human DNA is a copy of the Bible in man. A Bible is a collection of books and also has chapters and verses like our DNA. There were many questions on the Bible like the number of books and the relationships of books between each other and all these questions the Lord answered me by explaining this with our DNA.
Word of God shows us God, therefore the image of God is in His Word and when God created man the image of His Word was in man in perfection. Sin caused the corruption of this perfect Instruction from God and therefore sickness started to come into man. Adam was called reddish for he was full of life but after he sinned, this sin started manifesting physically in his grandson and he was called Enoch which means pale or mortal. It was then man started realizing he needed God and started worshiping Him.
We humans are different from other beings in whole of creation only because we have God's image in us. Even though it has got corrupted, the love and mercy of God has made way for us to get back this image by the understanding of His Word and its application into our lives. It is from the spirit that things manifest into the flesh so when we speak the Word with its full understanding and authority we heal the flesh and thus see miracles happen in man. The Hebrew word used for flesh means message and when God's message is in us life is in us. Thus we see Jesus kept emphasizing on us eating (consuming and making a part of us) His flesh (message) to have life in us.
Let us realize we humans are different and how we are made in God. Let us bring to fullness this image of God in us by getting the Truth in us and thus free ourselves from the curse of sin and death. Jesus was without blemish for the Word was perfect in Him and therefore God did not allow even His flesh to see corruption when He died. In the end when we get the full understanding of the Word in its perfection, it is written corrupt man would put on and inherit incorruption.
So let us know the importance of believing in Jesus Christ, studying and applying the Word of God in our lives and becoming a Holy flesh.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord, all things are created by your Word, but the perfection of your Word was only in man whom You loved the most. When sin came man saw corruption when sin came into man like what happened when some of the angels revolted against the Light and the Body of the Son lost His glory. Lord, You made man so that the Light will shine in man and when He becomes part of your Body the glory of the Son will be restored. Open the minds of your people so that the Word gets rooted in them and they be healed in the flesh...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

1 Corinthians 15:35-43
35 But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come?
36 Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die:
37 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 grain:
38 But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body.
39 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.
40 There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another.
41 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.
42 So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:
43 It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:
11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
25 For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved:
26 Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope:
27 Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.
35 Wherefore he saith also in another psalm, Thou shalt not suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.
36 For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell on sleep, and was laid unto his fathers, and saw corruption:
37 But he, whom God raised again, saw no corruption.
38 Be it known unto you therefore, men and brethren, that through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins:
39a And by him all that believe are justified from all things,
1 Corinthians 15:50-58
50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
|The Word of God was given free to us, therefore we should also share it freely with others.
