Even amid the post-bombing destruction of Occupied Japan in 1947, photographer, Nicholas Orzio was able to reveal the soul of a people and the hope of a nation. This ability to evoke emotion as well as capture the inner beauty of God's creations in his photographs has continued for seven decades, and has given him world-wide recognition. Through his belief that God has endowed each of us with some of his own attributes, Orzio's photographs of ordinary individuals become extraordinary as they collectively reflect His image.

'...The insightfulness and vision that Nicholas used in capturing the compelling images in this collection speaks volumes of his ability to not only see what most people never see, but to capture that vision in an image and preserve it forever! Following this work [Beginnings: Images of Occupied Japan]...he allowed his vision to explore and capture the beauty of God's creations. Hopefully this publication will begin to direct the recognition Nicholas deserves for his contribution to the art and science of photography.' —Michael R Scalf Sr, Executive Director, International Photography Hall of Fame
In man's quest to seek fulfillment, he acquires many "things" and a host of "stuff". Society has taught him that "things" define who and what he is. The more things he comes to have, the more important he feels. But after acquiring all of his things, he finds himself still unfulfilled.Dr. Simmons asserts in IN HIS IMAGE that man's longing is a desire to re-establish a relationship with his creator. He proves, through scripture, that man was created to be just as his creator. IN HIS IMAGE shows us how to walk like God, talk like God, EXPECT like God because we are, in fact, God's spirit encapsulled in flesh.Dr. Simmons does a fine job in, IN HIS IMAGE, showing us how to recapture our God self.
“A Disciple…will be like his teacher.” (Luke 6:40) What does it mean to be a follower of Jesus? The ultimate goal of discipleship is to be like the Teacher—to be like Jesus Himself. Every Christian wants to understand what that means. But even if we understand it, is it possible? Michael Wilkins asserts that it’s not only possible, it’s a life that all Christians are called to—not just a select few. So why do we so seldom experience it? As Wilkins points out, even the first followers of Jesus had a hard time grasping what it meant to be His disciples. Like them, our difficulty often lies in not clearly understanding who Jesus is, not recognizing the resources available to us as God’s children, or not believing who we are to be as Christ’s followers. But like the early disciples, our lives can radically change. If we want to follow Jesus, we can become like Him. “Jesus takes us exactly as He finds us,” writes Wilkins, “and transforms us into His likeness.” So come, learn what it means to walk with Jesus and reflect His image to the real world.
God Created Man in His Image and Likeness by Oried E. Graves Pdf
Everyone who reads the Bible must admit that it tells us to do things that we never have done and cannot do in our fleshly bodies. One reason is that God our Creator is telling us what He wants us to be and do as created in His image and likeness. Our purpose is in our image and likeness of God our Creator, not like the dust of the ground or the flesh of our parents. Most children dont know that they are created in the image and likeness of God, and their parents have not asked God for His spirit for their children so they can be taught this vital truth. The reason parents dont ask God for His spirit for their children is because they dont recognize the need for Him. There are several things mankind cannot do in the flesh, and they must recognize their origin in the image and likeness of God. Mankind must recognize being in the image and likeness of God to, first, love God with all their being and love his neighbors as himself; second, to obey God and his parents as required in Gods word; third, to trust God with all his heart; fourth, to worship God in spirit and in truth; and fifth, to glorify God in his body and spirit, which are God. The devil does not want mankind to know that he is created in the image and likeness of God because man will always defeat Satan and fulfill God's will.
Why do we have children? The answer(s) may seem obvious, but have we ever really sat down and thought about the reasons we have children? Our answers reveal that we don’t generally see how important or valuable children are to us as individuals and families or, more importantly, to God who creates every child for a purpose. Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations. (Jeremiah 1: 5) For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully [and] wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And [that] my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, [And] skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When [as yet there were] none of them. (Psalm 139: 13–16). Our perception of children determines how we treat our children. World wide, stories abound of child trafficking, child abuse in various forms, children in areas of armed conflict, child labour, and so on, but what about children closer to home—our own children, our nieces and nephews, children of our friends and neighbours? Where ever or whoever we are, we interact with children so whilst this book is primarily for parents, it is for every adult who comes in to contact with children whether at home, work, school, or place of worship. As a mother, I see parenting or looking after children as an honour and privilege and, whilst not easy, being a parent is one of the greatest blessings God has given us. If we look at parenthood through God’s eyes, we will see that we have the greatest opportunity to serve Him and establish His will and purposes on this earth. The lives of our children are more precious in God’s sight than we can ever imagine. Throughout this book, I want to challenge us all to re-examine our views, attitudes and behaviour towards our children. We may give ourselves a pass mark but does what we see today in the lives of our children reflect God’s heart or are we ourselves truly happy with what we see in the lives of our children?
In His Image and Likeness by Kristin Eldyss Sorensen Zapalac Pdf
In this ground-breaking book, Zapalac brings together the methods of social, intellectual, and art history in showing how the Protestant Reformation altered the terms of political discourse in a German free imperial city. In Zapalac's view, visual and verbal images, many of them having their origins in conceptions of the sacred, were more central to sixteenth-century political thought within the city walls than was the rationalized language of law. Drawing on a wealth of sources, she traces the impact of religious change on the languages of judgment and authority used in the city of Regensburg, and thereby sheds light on the nature of political thought in early modern Germany.
Not in His Image (15th Anniversary Edition) by John Lamb Lash Pdf
“Lash is capable of explaining the mind-bending concepts of Gnosticism and pagan mystery cults with bracing clarity and startling insight. . . . [His] arguments are often lively and entertaining.”—Los Angeles Times Fully revised and with a new preface by the author, this timely update is perfect for readers of The Immortality Key. Since its initial release to wide acclaim in 2006, Not in His Image has transformed the lives of readers around the world by presenting the living presence of the Wisdom Goddess as never before revealed, illustrating that the truth of an impactful Gnostic message cannot be hidden or destroyed. With clarity, author John Lamb Lash explains how a little-known messianic sect propelled itself into a dominant world power, systematically wiping out the great Gnostic spiritual teachers, the Druid priests, and the shamanistic healers of Europe and North Africa. Early Christians burned libraries and destroyed temples in an attempt to silence the ancient truth-tellers and keep their own secrets. Not in His Image delves deeply into ancient Gnostic writings to reconstruct the story early Christians tried to scrub from the pages of history, exploring the richness of the ancient European Pagan spirituality—the Pagan Mysteries, the Great Goddess, Gnosis, the myths of Sophia and Gaia. In the 15th Anniversary Edition, Lash doubles down on his original argument against redemptive ideology and authoritarian deceit. He shows how the Gnostics clearly foresaw the current program of salvation by syringe, and places the Sophianic vision of life centrally in the battle to expose and oppose the evil agenda of transhumanism, making this well-timed update more relevant than ever. “Sometimes a book changes the world. Not in His Image is such a book. It is clear, stimulating, well-researched, and sure to outrage the experts. . . . Get it. Improve not just your own life, but civilization’s chances for survival.”—Roger Payne, author of Among Whales

Born in His Image, Birthed in His Likeness by Donald R. Downing Pdf
The church today is in the midst of an identity crisis. Many members of the body of Christ do not yet know who they really are. Heirs of God and joint-heirs with Christ, they nevertheless live defeated lives as spiritual paupers, unaware of their legacy: to be born in His image and birthed in His likeness. God's desire is to mold each of His children into masterpieces of His grace, to transform them into the likeness of His Son. A new heart is the key to this transformation. Our hearts must be pure and perfect if we hope to see God, and we receive a new heart only by putting on Christ and allowing Him to transform us into new creatures in His likeness. Our destiny as believers is to be like Him, but we must be totally committed to Him in our heart. Do you want to fulfill your destiny? This book will show you how to leave the mundane behind and ascend to the higher levels of godliness into the very infinite image of Christ to become God's masterpiece! Dr. Donald R. Downing is the apostle for the "gospel of the heart" message to the nations. As God's "heart specialist," he believes that inner heart transformation through faith in Christ is the key to salvation and to fulfilling our destiny as bearers of the image and likeness of Christ. A native of Oklahoma, he now lives in Maryland, where he oversees the Coalition of Hearts Churches internationally.
