    So does God look like humans or not?

    OK, God is spirit, but don't spirits have a form, a specific appearance of their own? Yes spirits can take any form they like, but again don't they have an image, a form of their own? Spirits are a fluid thing? Clouds or something like that? I don't really think so.

    My belief is that He does look like people, or better we were made to look like Him. God gave something of His own when He created Adam, something that is a part of His Spirit, when He breathed into Adam's nostrils. So man was created in His image. Spiritually yes, but not physically? Of course physically as well. Why not? Why only spiritually but not physicaly? There isn't any reason for not making us similar to Him. To be honest I can not imagine something without a form, like a "mountain" or a "cloud" sitting on a throne. A cloud surrounded by other clouds, the angels. Something that looks like those weird looks of aliens in science fiction movies. I want to believe that in Heaven we will look at His beautiful eyes, His beautiful face(the most beautiful face in the universe), hearing His beautiful voice, feeling the touch of His beautiful hands, walking side by side with Him. God honored us by making us in his image, both in the outside and the inside. This is how I believe it is.

    Hello Giannis,

    I can understand where you are coming from in your view of God's form and I can not say that this is not so or He may take a form to sit on His throne and may look like us in this form. But this form may not be what He is like in His essential nature.

    Thank you for you input. I may be wrong, but to me it seems that having a body like ours would put limits on God, and I think that He is not bound by any limits as part of His filling all.

    Brother Giannis:

    May I add a little bit of my understanding to your understanding, which are parallel to each other.

    We are taught by God, the Spirit of truth and life that gives us existence.

    God is Spirit, invisible, yet he wants to be known and seen, so he created a BODY, and he called that MAN Christ (Adam) the beginning of creation.

    Through that MAN, Christ. he does ALL THE WORKS of the Almighty God, so truth and life CAN BE SEEN.

    Christ can appear in a body of flesh, or he can be the SPIRIT of prophecy, he is omnipresent as is his Father.

    We cannot exist without the SPIRIT of God, through Christ, giving us LIFE, just as Christ, a BODY, cannot exist without the Spirit of his Father giving him LIFE.

    Christ commended HIS Spirit, the Spirit of HIS Father back to God who gave him LIFE, thus his body DIED on the cross, for the SALVATION of God's creation.

    When God put his Spirit back into Christ he RESURRECTED all creation ANEW, the IMAGE of GOD, the body of Christ.

    When we are MATURE in the TRUTH and LIFE of God, Christ will sent his angels to harvest us, in the twinkling of an eye we will PUT ON CHRIST, the express IMAGE and GLORY of GOD.

    Christ told his disciples I go to prepare a place for you, that where I am, there will you be also.

    At present Christ is indwelling creation revealing the KINGDOM of God to creation.

    Isaiah 63:9 ...and the ANGEL of HIS presence SAVED them ....

    Colossians 1:27 ... thist mystery .... CHRIST IN YOU ......

    That where I am ye may be also.

    Revelation 10:11 ... Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.

    Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore, and TEACH ALL NATION, BAPTIZING in the NAME .....

    His disciples never understood till pentecost that they would not be able to TEACH ALL NATION, until they had been harvested and become the express IMAGE and Glory of God, all by the WORKS of Christ RESURRECTION.

    God Bless YOU!
