John 10:34 (KJV) Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods? Jesus was quoting: Psalms 82:6 (KJV) I have said, Ye [are] gods; and all of you [are] children of the most High. I've heard many a discussion about this and 99.999999% are eager to point out that we are NOT gods in direct violation of the word of God - yet I agree. There are many meanings of the word Elohim but in the Greek it says "gods" - theos. So, what is the Holy Spirit trying to say in this? Let's start at the beginning.... way back. Genesis 2:7 (KJV) And the LORD God formed man [of] the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. We are a body, a soul, and a spirit, 1 Thess 5:23, just like God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Genesis 1:27 (KJV) So God created man in his [own] image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. This verse is key to understanding about what the Holy Spirit is saying in that we are gods. Man was given a great gift when made in the image of God. That gift is the ability to create life. A life with a spirit. A child. Every human has a part of God in them, His Spirit, His life. That gift was given to man and every time a child is conceived a little part of God is placed in that body. This is why God loves us all and why abortion and hell are so bad. While the aborted child will return to God Who sent it, when one goes to hell, God will never deal with that part of Him ever again. Well that's it. I heard that the other day - sadly I don't remember from where - but thought it was very important to share.
