    Bible is available for us to BELIEVE and not to FIGURE OUT. That is why God says lean not with your own understanding for my Words shall never pass away. Jesus himself is the word of God. John 1:1 In the Beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God. We need to meditate God's words with the help of the HOLY SPIRIT.The light of our body is our EYES use them in God's way Amn

    What a lot of people don't know is Jesus is the one that said let us make man in our image because God don't talk nothing was made without Jesus because Jesus talks God is the power it took both God and Jesus to make man. When we die we will be equal to the angels, while on earth Jesus was equal to God when he died you can almost see how powerful he is again. The spirit has been forever and ever and will remain forever Amen. Jesus is the King for ever more.
