Could you please explain the image of the invisible nature?

Now in relation to God it says that Jesus is the image of the invisible God.

How can you say that, Jesus is the visible image of the invisible 'God'?

    You are referring to Colossians 1 http://niv.scripturetext.com/colossians/1.htm

    15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. 19 For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.

    John 1:18 No one has ever seen God but the only God who is at the Father's side He has made Him known.

    I am not sure exactly how to respond to your question. I see a statement like that and I am glad to learn that it is true. You see the same statement and wonder how it can possibly be true. Maybe someone else who has more understanding will be able to answer your question. As for me I ask how do you explain God? How do you explain the unexplainable? God said of Himself. YHVH (I am who I am). Who is God? The answer "He IS."

    "Visible" is a very limited scope. "Invisible" is simply unseen. That which is unseen but exists can be detected indirectly. In this case, through a visible shadow cast onto a background.

    Or like with an electron microscope, which makes the invisible nature visible.

    Problem with the Jesus and God thing, that doesn't happen.

    God is spirit. Invisible.

    Jesus being God humbled Himself and took on a human body (phil 2)

    So we can see Jesus we can see God

    They share the same Spirit

    this is not talking about the flesh.....the body is consequential only in that it allows the Spirit to manifest in this world...the Natural World

    John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God

    John 1:14 and the Word became flesh and dwelt among us

    The church I attend is noted as, Christian church. Christian= Christ like. We obey each factor you made yet there are some which you mis-quoted: 6-Paid ministry: a million corth 9: yet we did no longer use this top. on the choice, we positioned up with something particularly than forestall the gospel of Christ. 13Don't you recognize that people who artwork in the temple get their food from the temple, and people who serve on the altar share in what's presented on the altar? 14In an identical way, the Lord has commanded that people who pontificate the gospel might desire to acquire their living from the gospel." SO minister might desire to be paid 9-The bible says the presents shall give up in corith whilst that (an merchandise in the Greek) shall come to pass=bible. we mandatory the presents in the early church yet we don't choose them now. no one is raised from the ineffective or the blind see. 10- "the father and that i are one" "in the previous Abraham grew to become into i'm" "And the be conscious grew to become into God and the be conscious grew to become flesh" those all instruct the oneness of God and Jesus. 11- John 4:24, "Jesus mentioned to her, "have faith me, female, the hour is coming once you will worship the father neither in this mountain nor in Jerusalem. 22 You human beings worship what you do no longer comprehend; we worship what we understand, because of the fact salvation is from the Jews. 23 however the hour is coming, and is now right here, whilst real worshipers will worship the father in Spirit and actuality; 9 and certainly the father seeks such human beings to worship him. 24 God is Spirit, and people who worship him might desire to worship in Spirit and actuality."...God is spirit. sixteen-6For if the ineffective are no longer raised, then Christ has no longer been raised the two. 17And if Christ has no longer been raised, your faith is futile; you're nonetheless on your sins. 18Then those additionally who've fallen asleep in Christ are lost. 19If in simple terms for this life we've desire in Christ, we are to be pitied greater desirable than all adult men." this passage says no longer something of baptism of the ineffective. all of us know what might desire to be achieved in the previous baptism from Acts 2:38, "Repent truthfully everyone of you and be baptized for the remission of your sins" So one might desire to have faith, repent and then baptism is needed. you're following the cult of Mormonism. that's chief is Joseph Smith and not Jesus Christ. learn the fact my brother. †
