Becoming a god Like Jesus

Life of Heber C. Kimball, pg 513; “A man may become a God as Jesus Christ did. For this he must prepare himself while in the flesh, that he may be enthroned as a judge is enthroned. I have a desire that my children be crowned, and if I be enthroned I want to have the privilege of wafting myself by the power of God, to visit my children. Everything we see here is typical of what will be hereafter.”

 

 

Exodus 20:4-5; “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: 5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me.”

Psalm 135:4; “For the LORD hath chosen Jacob unto himself, and Israel for his peculiar treasure.”

Isaiah 42:8; “I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.”

If God wouldn’t give up His glory to any other god why would it be okay to become a god and have your spirit children give you glory and honor?

God loves us and is jealous over us. It’s not the type of jealousy you and I know here on earth. God’s jealousy isn’t because of envy, but because of His zealous love for us.  The word jealous in the Hebrew means just that – zealous. God can’t sin and jealousy for God isn’t the sinful jealousy we feel as men.

God wants our undivided love and devotion to Him because He has chosen us.

We’re not going to be gods and we’re not going to have polygamous forever families in heaven.
