Life is a Portrait

The Creation of Man’s Portrait

The portraits of the creation man begin in the Order and Presence of God. Man’s portrait of his new life began with his creation; the temptation of the fallen Lucifer possessing the body of the serpent and his version of God’s Word about the command of God forbidden them to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil; Adam’s fall changed all creation; Adam driven from the Order and Presence of God; Adam’s independence from God; and from this state on Man’s wickedness became great in the earth and every thought of his heart would be evil continually.

Genesis 5:1-2

1 This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made He him;

2 Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.

  • A portrait in the natural painting, drawing, photograph, or engraving of a person, especially one depicting only the face or head and shoulders.
  • The birth day of every human being, born in the flesh enters into an aging process according to time in them and begins to reflect their life portrait.
  • Adam male and female changed the whole creation by rejecting and rebelling against the command of God to be like God but was created in the image of God.
  • Adam male and female became unfit for paradise, the Garden of Eden which is the Order and Presence of God.
  • The spirit of sin and rebellion continued to follow Adam male and female because it was now in his heart.
  • The spirit of independence now rested upon Adam male and female.
  • The spirit of sin and rebellion brought in the spirit of death upon all mankind.
  • The spirit of sin and rebellion changed the image of God that man was created in to the image of evil, the devil.
  • Since you’ve been born again, what does your spiritual portrait look like?
  • If you have not been born again or in a backslidden state, are you still celebrating each year in wickedness and rebellion against God’s Word? What does your portrait look like?
  • Each year of celebrating life on the earth your spiritual portrait should be the reflection of God through Christ as a new creature in Christ.
  • Life experienced and lived goes farther than a moment of carnal celebration and hoopla!
  • When the Lord sent Jesus to redeem mankind was it to redeem your soul or to please your flesh and good?
  • Is your current state more important than your spiritual state?
  • Is Salvation designed to make the real authentic you come alive in Christ, which is your soul?
  • Or is your understanding of Salvation to make you comfortable in your current state of sin and transgression?
  • Why does mankind take God’s plan to try and make it comfortable to their present in the Knowledge of good and evil from standards of their past?
  • The Word of God is the portrait of life portrayed in the present and not the past.

The Portrait of Jesus

  • Born of a virgin woman that was found with child conceived of the Holy Ghost.
  • Jesus came as the last Adam as a quickening spirit; the first man Adam was of the earth, earthy; the second man is the Lord from Heaven. 1 Corinthians 15:45, 47
  • The soul of Jesus experienced death and went to Hell, 1 Peter 3:18-19
  • The spirit of Jesus was received by God the Father.
  • Jesus Christ came to fulfill the Old Testament shadows, St Matthew 5:17-20
  • Jesus Christ resurrected from the dead and conquered death,  St Matthew 28:6
  • The Gospels of St Matthew, St Mark, St Luke, and St John paint a portrait of our Model and Example Jesus the Christ.
  • The Gospel of Matthew presents undeniable evidence that Jesus Christ is the promised Messiah, the Kingly Messiah. This book forms the joining link between Old and New Testament, focusing on the fulfillment of prophecy.
  • Through a dramatic and action-packed sequence of events, the Gospel of Mark shows Jesus Christ as the suffering servant, the wonder worker, tireless servant of God and Man, and Son of God.
  • Luke’s Gospel was written to give a reliable and precise record of Jesus Christ’s life, revealing not only his humanity but his perfection as a human. Luke portrays Jesus as Savior of all people, sinners, and outcasts.
  • The Gospel of John gives us an up-close and personal look at Christ’s identity as the Son of God, disclosing Jesus’ divine nature, and His oneness with His Father.
  • Even Isaiah’s portrayal of Christ through prophecies looked down through the centuries and saw the coming Messiah. He gave us the most perfect picture of the history, mission, titles, and characteristics of Christ.
  • Is your life getting harder to enjoy from what you are portraying?
  • Is it costing you more, in terms of life, health, and strength for you to find pleasures or get pleasure from what your life is drawing/painting?
  • These times are called perilous times and they are times that try the soul of all mankind.
  • Has your independence from God become too costly to survive without Him?
  • This is your life! If you measure your life today up against the Will and Way of the Word of God in accomplishments, what would be the success of it today?  What would it portray?
  • Not your past, its accomplishments, not yesterday’s success and failures, but today.
  • If today was your day of judgment by the Lord what would His response be to you for your portrait of life in Him today?
  • Our beginning must be the same as Adam’s was in his beginning returning back to the Order and Presence of God.

1 Corinthians 15:49 And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.

  • Getting back the image of God after their likeness – being Christ like.

Amen
