The 7000 years that God has given man in time started with Adam in his creation as the first living soul in the Image and likeness of God with being the first species with freewill. Humanity is nearing the 6,000 year mark down that time line and we are now into the Jesus prophesy of Matt.24, Mark 13 and Luke 21…. Be teaching about this prophesy on Tues. evening 5/25 (shared pot-blessing meal at 5:30, Study about 6.) The 7, 000 year time line is all a matter of prophesy in which the 6,000 year have been very accurate. So, personally I expect the last 1000 years to be right on as well. 2 Pet.3:8.
So we are living in a temporary time dimension of one week of our 1,000 yr. days. We are here to learn how to use our free will for righteousness and how to walk by faith as so does our Creator.
In Gen.1:26 the statement is made “Let us (God is a trinity) make man in our image and likeness.” Of course we run off with thinking that was an immediate action and not seeing the process that would need to happen to accomplish that vision. It took 4,000 years for God to bring to pass the 1st to accomplish that vision in Christ Jesus as a human being born of the blood of Abraham and David, fulfilling that vision exactly in the Old Testament. And in the New Testament, 2 Peter 3
So lets spend just a little time getting to know who we are and what we are in this process of perfection. 1 John 3-9:3 For the [true] love of God is this: that we do His commands [keep His ordinances and are mindful of His precepts and teaching]. And these orders of His are not irksome (burdensome, oppressive, or grievous). 4 For whatever is born of God is victorious over the world; and this is the victory that conquers the world, even our faith. 5 Who is it that is victorious over [that conquers] the world but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God [who adheres to, trusts in, and relies on that fact]? 6 This is He Who came by (with) water and blood [[a]His baptism and His death], Jesus Christ (the Messiah)—not by (in) the water only, but by (in) the water and the blood. And it is the [Holy] Spirit Who bears witness, because the [Holy] Spirit is the Truth. 7 So there are three witnesses [b]in heaven: the Father, the Word and the Holy Spirit, and these three are One; 8 many coincides]. and there are three witnesses on the earth: the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and these three agree [are in unison; their test9 If we accept [as we do] the testimony of men [if we are willing to take human authority], the testimony of God is greater (of stronger authority), for this is the testimony of God, even the witness which He has borne regarding His Son. 1 John 5:5-9 “For the life (the animal soul) is in the blood, and I have given it for you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that makes atonement, by reason of the life [which it represents].” Lev. 17:11. 5 Jesus answered, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, unless a man is born of water and [[a]even] the Spirit, he cannot [ever] enter the kingdom of God. 6 What is born of [from] the flesh is flesh [of the physical is physical]; and what is born of the Spirit is spirit. John 3:5-6.
Jesus teaches that humanity is born spiritually dead and needs to not only have a physical (water) birth as human but also must have a (spiritual) birth for the soul to have eternal access to the Kingdom of God. The is found not in good works but by having a spiritual birth and relationship in Christ Jesus as LORD and to keep HIS commandments.
Isa. 28:9-20 is also a good read on the subject along with John 3.
Body = water = Word of God
Soul = blood = Holy Spirit
Spirit = spirit = Heavenly Father
Gen.1:26, God began the process of making man in HIS Image & Likeness. as per the star of David used in the flag of Israel…. Jesus is the first to fulfill that vision. In HIM we have the same potential, if we are up for it?

So how you doing in training your soul to love God and to seek for HIS Righteousness? If we don’t learn humility (To have ears) and obedience. Do you really expect God to replace your temporary body with another eternal body in which to make his universe like the planet earth?
