For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
I know that you've probably not thought about it this way, but the spirit that lives inside you, and brings life and animation to you is your SPIRIT. THAT is the real you. THAT is who Jesus Christ gave birth to - in the misty eon's past. He gave birth to us and thereby became our Father. Jesus is the Father of your Spirit - the real you!
Don't think that by your body, having been grown from a seed and an egg, that that constitutes God as your Father. Your body is the result of God The Designer - even THE Master Designer - for it is this body which is His crowning achievement, His Masterpiece. The Model T never made Henry Ford a father - it was his creation, not his offspring. Remember the Biblical principal; "Like Begets Like"?
Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit.
It took the birthing of SPIRITS to constitute God a Father, since "GOD IS SPIRIT" (John 4:24) begetting His own kind necessitated Him birthing SPIRITS!!
Consequently, we are the direct offspring of The God of The Universe. So guess what that makes us? Now can you see why Jesus would call us gods? He knew that the internal substance of man is very special, even partaking of His own being - like begot like.
Even though this is an angle never before presented - that I know of - it does not conflict with a single verse of scripture (that I am aware of). A different angle from what we've been taught. Now if this is the correct understanding, then think how cleverly the devil has thown us off the track with the currently popular understanding that Jesus is our brother, or merely another man. It veils the correct relationship that each of us naturally have with Jesus Christ - the Father of our Spirits.
How Long Has Your Spirit Been Around?
I have news for you about the AGE of the spirit that lives inside you. Isaiah 9 above pretty well settles WHO 'gave birth', or 'begot' our individual spirits - who our Father in heaven is.
Be sure of this; Your spirit did not first come into being during the Johnny Carson Show one night. It has been around awhile, awaiting this "placement" by the one who knows best WHEN & WHERE each person will receive the most instruction in the required lessons of life - towards the maturing of that son or daughter. The Father of that spirit, of course, knows best!
In other words, current American christian teaching centers on the idea that each spirit is "fresh from the hand of God". Unfortunately, that teaching is incorrect... (but what did you expect, that the enemy would allow a fundamental truth to make it through the "dark ages" without being tweaked, twisted and perverted into the sissified "gospel" as it has been filtered to us by Lucifer...???)
No indeed, there are many scriptures indicating that you have really been around awhile, and that God is the Father of your SPIRIT (not to be confused with your SOUL.)
This is the word of the LORD concerning Israel. The LORD, who stretches out the heavens, who lays the foundation of the earth, and who forms the spirit of man within him...
"May the LORD, the God of the spirits of all mankind, appoint a man over this community. Numbers 27:16
You deserted the Rock, who fathered you; you forgot the God who gave you birth.
Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them for it. How much more should we submit to the Father of our spirits and live!
Listen to me, you who pursue righteousness and who seek the LORD: Look to the rock from which you were cut and to the quarry from which you were hewn
"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations."
This should be Christian Fundamentals 101. This is the most basic of truths - yet where is it taught in our Christian lands? No, our teachers prefer to keep the 'mysteries of God' ever before us and refuse to teach the basics truths of the spirit world.
"You are Israel's (America's) teacher, "said Jesus, "and do you not understand these things?
I have spoken to you of earthly things and you do not believe; how then will you believe if I speak of heavenly things?
Has Your Spirit Been Around A Long Time,
Or Is Each Baby "Fresh From The Hand of God"?
As he went along, he saw a man blind from birth.
His disciples asked him, "Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?
"Neither this man nor his parents sinned," said Jesus, "but this happened so that the work of God might be
displayed in his life.
Do you see how CIVILIZED Jesus was in answering a question that by today's standards would have qualified you for the cult farm...
"Rabbi, who sinned, THIS MAN or his parents, that he was BORN blind?"
If you were to ask this question, it infers a PRE-EXISTENCE of the spirit of THIS MAN!!! Otherwise how could HE sin previous to his birth? According to today's perverted teachings, Jesus would have blasted him with "what kind of a stupid question is that?" type of an answer. To me, this is the most hilarious chapter in the Bible. I love to read how the teachers BADGERED and BELITTLED and generally acted like little spoiled kids!! Surely little has changed in these two thousand years - same basic story, just change the names and fill in the blanks...
You see, we assume that we call God our father because He CREATED Adam, then Eve. The artisan who creates a masterpiece would never be considered the FATHER of that work of art! So what makes you think that creating His masterpiece - the human body - constitutes His FATHERHOOD? No, FATHERHOOD requires one to BEGET after ones' own kind.
Remember ***** LIKE BEGETS LIKE ****** is one of the most basic, foundational, square-one, truths in the bible:
God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed
in it according to their kinds.
And then there is the totally obvious and clearly spelled out;
But I tell you, Elijah has come, and they have done to him everything they wished, just as it is written about him."
* * * * *
And if you are willing to accept it, he is Elijah, who was to come.
The disciples asked him, "Why then do the teachers of the law say that Elijah must come first?"
Jesus replied, "To be sure, Elijah comes and will restore all things.
But I tell you, Elijah has already come, and they did not recognize him, but have done to him everything
they wished. In the same way the Son of Man is going to suffer at their hands."
Then the disciples understood that he was talking to them about John the Baptist.

Not my words - all HIS!!!
