"gods ", "children of God ", these are angels, more likely evil, fallen angels, manifested as "gods " in idolatry.


Finn Oniciuc's comment on 2014-11-14 13:21:28:

It means that we are all creators made in the likeness of God. So when we believe with all our intention, we manifest into our physical reality, that which we believe to be already part of our present reality .


Nancy P.'s comment on 2014-06-21 06:04:51:

This changes everything! Praise be to God!


James M R's comment on 2014-04-12 12:10:21:

I agree with Kuriakose 's comment that it is meant literally as a FUTURE reality. It is stated very clearly by Jesus himself, it 's clearly not meant to be just about judges or magistrates. It means potentially anyone in the world who truly loves God by receiving his word.

John 17 23 I in you in me my spirit the almighty God spirit are one with me... The Almighty even breathed the breath of life in me the Almighty God very being inside of me how could I not be a god

Ehigamen Kingsley's comment on 2013-12-09 11:48:59:

we don't become that son of God or be that god if we don't believe and accept jesus christ. john 1:12.........and. we will die like mere man if we do not don't know this psalm 82:6.


Praise Smart's comment on 2013-11-26 10:23:27:

this means,we are complet in God,Has He His so iam here on this earth to bring sons to made perfect in God ye.glory be to God


Kuriakose's comment on 2013-11-11 21:52:48:

The great truth that every man should understand. We are all children of God. Jesus said "Be perfect as my father is perfect". Every human being has the potential of attaining perfection and at the stage of full emancipation to become sons of God as Jesus was. We are all potential Christs . The notion that Jesus is the ONLY son of God should be understood as a statement that implies that no one other than Jesus has qualified by his actions and deeds to be qualified as SON of God. That doesn't mean that there can be no other son of God in future. God and Jesus want everyone of us to qualify . the famous prayer of Jesus " let them be one with us as you and I are one" only means that. Had the Christian leaders taught this way there would not have been so much opposition to Christianity from others like Mahatma Gandi who said "If Jesus could be son of God we all could be too" This is nothing different from the teaching of Jesus

As He so, are we I love that He made us a little lower than him, I speak life to every situation...


Joshua Derstine's comment on 2013-10-01 22:17:45:

Others beside jehovah are here callex gods. Therefore that the word was called "god" or "a god" in john 1:1 is no evidence that the word was of the same essence or part of a trinity. Many are refered to as gods or even mighty god, but there is only one almighty god jehovah.


AB Mongo's comment on 2013-10-01 17:49:09:

we are not less than who He is in His image, but slightly different in His nature (for His Omnipresence, Omniscience, and Omnipotence etc. Col.2:9


Helen Olaye's comment on 2013-09-20 05:42:23:

God has made all his children god over every situation. No situation should over take us.


Michael Ugochukwu Mbuko's comment on 2013-09-10 05:09:38:

This is is who we are in Christ. Praise the lord


Rich's comment on 2013-07-06 10:43:12:

Psalm 82, one might consider, has God say "Ye are gods" that is as in an understanding of Exodus 7:1. And that is: "7 And the Lord said unto Moses, See, I have made thee a god to Pharaoh: and Aaron thy brother shall be thy prophet."

This understanding is part of the burning bush anointing where Moses and Aaron learn for example, Exodus 4:15-16:

"15 And thou shalt speak unto him, and put words in his mouth: and I will be with thy mouth, and with his mouth, and will teach you what ye shall do.

16 And he shall be thy spokesman unto the people: and he shall be, even he shall be to thee instead of a mouth, and thou shalt be to him instead of God."


Niyi Amuda's comment on 2012-12-15 18:39:43:

...Ye are gods. Psalms 82:6 means a lot to me. Wow! How amazing to realize that I'm not an ordinary human being but God. Parents begat their offspring to look like them. A monkey begets its kind. A goat same. God begets god. He that is from the Spirit is spirit. In other words, when we got born again, we’re literally like God. If we realize this truth, the devil will see you and flee. As He is, so are we in this world (1 John 4:17). We are His children, that's why, "ye are gods. Hallelujah!
