“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.”
Man is a living Soul formed in the image and likeness of God. Through man’s senses he receives knowledge / understanding of his surroundings. This information is then process into words which defines his existence. Man, the living soul accepts these words. Words are a part of God’s character. “In the beginning was the Word and the same was in the beginning with God.” “God is a Spirit .” Man, the living soul receives a spirit / words. MAN IS NOT A SPIRIT; “For a spirit had not flesh and bones.” *Even our Lord Jesus Christ was “GIVEN the Spirit without measure.”
“Ye are Gods.” indicates our potential and Our Father God intentions for us; if we so desire though. “I put before you Life ( Jesus Christ ) and death, HOPING you choose Life.” “That which is born of flesh is flesh.” “That which is born of Spirit is Spirit.” To be “born again” is to accept Jesus Christ and that in turn you’ll be accepting Our Father God which is SPIRIT; making you one with God.
“Ye are Gods” in the flesh GIVEN the Spirit. Your acceptance of the Holy Spirit determines whether you are a God or just mere men living in inequity refusing to accept our Father God’s purpose for you; Gods / Goddesses; sons and daughters of the most high.
Man is not born a spirit, but can become a Spirit; by sharing his identity, for him and the Father become one through Christ, and so is the Father (God is a Spirit ), so is the man. “I in you and you in me.” I quote “you in me” says God. “That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.” In Him, in His name, but until man accepts: MAN IS A LIVING SOUL!
