Ye Are Gods

“I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.” That’s Psalm 82:6. Know what to do with this one? Neither did the Jews! Jesus pulls this one out and death threats ensued.

Let’s examine this though, maybe come to an understanding better than the Jews of Jesus’ day. Psalm 82 is about the “congregation of the mighty,” God’s people. He tells them to do justly and to take care of the poor, this shows you are one of God’s kids–ye are gods because you have God, hear God and act like God.

Matthew 10 says that if you receive one of Jesus’ guys you receive God. Matthew 10 ends with giving a drink to one of these little ones, looking out for the despised, similar to Psalm 82.

No doubt, whatever I say from this point forward will be misinterpreted and viewed as heretical. I feel somewhat heretical saying it, in fact!

Our identification of God is so complete that we become Him, ye are gods. If we are received; God is received. The Jews didn’t like that either. When Jesus explained this one “they sought again to take him: but he escaped out of their hand.”

There is a union with Christ in faith that is more vital then we ever hear about. Do we dare believe it and act on it?

One thought on “Ye Are Gods”

  1. We shall string you up you heretic!
    But really I believe this is exactly what Gal. 2:20 is saying
    “I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
    Our motivation for serving should be for God’s glory, living by faith is for God’s glory, all that Jesus did was for His Father’s glory.
    “We all beheld His glory, full of grace and truth.” If Christ is truly living through us, we should reflect His grace and truth, for His glory.
