Homoousios and the Nature of Angels

Homoousios, in Christianity, is a key term of the Christological doctrine formulated in the first ecumenical council, at Nicaea in 325, to affirm that God and the Son and God and the Father are of the same substance.

Leap of Faith: Daily Lessons About Jesus Christ

Chapter: Angels and Peoples in Harmony (Pages 95-98)

 

When we begin to consider the love that the Bible discusses, I believe that it is mature to say that the love that is shared among believers and God’s people is gay (gaiety) and happy love. This love is a sincere devotion to God and serving others. This love is what God intended for us to embrace when He created the world, beginning with Adam and Eve.

Genesis 2:18 (nasb)

 “The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him.” First Corinthians 11:8-9 says, “For man does not originate from woman, but woman from man; for indeed man was not created for the woman’s sake, but woman for the man’s sake.”

What does it mean to be in harmony? Being in harmony is sharing time and effort in order that we all grow together as one unified body of Christ. In order for unification we ought to seek out individuals who hold no judgment and strive to embrace and live out the loving image of man that God created in the beginning.

When we consider how man was created we ought to know that man was made in God’s image. Who is God?

“Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love. By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him.”

 

John 1:7-9 (nasb)

He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the beloved. In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace, which He lavished upon us. In all wisdom and insight.

Ephesians 1:5-8 (nasb)

“That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him.”

Ephesians 1:17 (nasb)

This knowledge is that we are all part of an extended family of God. God’s family is one of beauty and grace. Much of what I see today is that God’s beauty has been attacked by evil in attempt to destroy God’s creation. The graceful, beautiful, peaceful, kind, gentle, humble, and loving acts are not as apparent in the world today as they ought to be. Society has been transformed into a vicious world of humans devouring one another and living beastly lives. This is unacceptable to God. God demands that we discover what it means to live in the fullness of God.

“The new wine mourns, the vine decays, all the merry- hearted sigh. The gaiety of tambourines ceases, the noise of revelers stops, the gaiety of the harp ceases. They do not drink wine with song; Strong drink is bitter to those who drink it… There is an outcry in the streets concerning the wine; All joy turns to gloom. The gaiety of the earth is banished.”

Isaiah 24:7-8,11 (nasb) (emphasis added)

 

The angels are the example, as they are perfect in God’s eyes. Many angels do not have families, and we are to be mindful of this reality. Angels exist in the human world in order to protect God’s people. Angels are gentle, peaceful, and graceful beings that have strength that goes beyond human understanding. Angels also have insight that goes beyond all human understanding. Angels use their creative minds, blessed by God, to add to God’s creation. Angels are guides to the human race and in many cases have dedicated their entire existence to serving God. This is why we are not to judge others, for how does one know when he or she might be ministering to an angel?

God sees all things and knows all hearts. What does the Bible say?

Matthew 7:1-2 (nasb)

“Do not judge lest you be judged. For in the way you judge; and by your standard of measure, it will be measured to you.”

When we consider preaching, we ought to know that ministers of God are to maintain the fruits of the spirit. There is a way to communicate a message with authority that does not demand yelling or harsh words.The Sword of the Spirit is all that we need in order to speak with authority. We are not to rely on antagonizing or vicious words in order to get a message across. We are to maintain self-control at all times. As examples of God’s design we are to seek out to establish the loving character of God’s children.

When we consider the creative side of God, we should know that He is an artist and musician. God intends for us to learn the beautiful things in life in order to establish His kingdom. His kingdom is to be one in which the human race lives as a gay and happy society.

Let it be clear that we are to abide by every word in the Bible to the fullest extent. We are to follow God’s law and adhere to His commandments. God commands us to live in harmony as a society that embraces differences in order to allow each and every person to know that they have a place in God’s family.

 

The simple reason that people give up is due to feeling as though they have no one to look to and no place to go. In order for us to fulfill God’s will, we are to seek out those individuals and teach them how to live according to God’s Word. Teach them that the qualities that they have make up the beauty of the world. Without gay and happy people in the world, it would be destroyed by vicious and malicious individuals who seek out to live as beasts as opposed to children of God.

Galatians 3:26 (nasb)

 “For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.”

Know that being clothed in Christ is being covered with the love of God, which is gay and happy love.

Let us not destroy the love of God. Let us blanket one another as brothers and sisters, as one family, and help each other to become mature adults in God’s kingdom.

Mature adults know the love of God and the law of God.

Key Notes:

We must remember that the Bible teaches that God sends many angels in order that they may solely dedicate their lives to serving God. This goes for ministers, priests, and disciples of Christ.

The truth is that as a country we are not to persecute people for any reason, but to only defend the Truth of the Word of God, and the believers. The Bible and history clearly teach that many people spend their entire lives dedicated to serving God.

There are many individuals who live their entire lives without ever getting married. God has chosen these people to be servants, and we are not to judge. The fact is that being alone is okay. Woman was made for man; it is the decision and choice of each person as to whether they get married. Some people never get married, and that is okay. Do not judge. You never know when you are dealing with angels on missions.

Man and woman were made to be together. Families were meant to be special. We all have a choice. Do not be led into the traps of society. Do not destroy God’s image of man or woman. Just listen to what He says, and you will not be led astray.

God opens doors at the appointed time. The time is right when we discover what we want out of a marriage or a relationship. We must first allow God to teach us, and by seeking out the divine nature of our “True Self,” amazing things begin to unfold.

Remember, during the life of Jesus He dedicated His entire life to serving God. Do not judge.

Remember the Trinity; we are one in union with our heavenly Father through His Holy Spirit. (Homoousios)

Galatians 3:28 says, “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”
