Where is it Written that Mankind Thinks as Almighty G-d?

in response to reader comment: All of it was already written before Moses went up the mountain

By your opening title line, the written record is what mankind must rely upon for verification of such things to a humanity that will argue against the truth for the lack of it being in the natural/mortal human heart. In acknowledging that Almighty G-d did indeed create the universe that we see, there was a brief moment (from an eternal perspective) when man did have an unspoiled relationship with the Creator and the knowledge implanted at that time allowed uninterrupted communion, inspiration and joy.

What has been written says that was lost the moment man disobeyed the commandment that was the basis of the perfect relationship, and sin entered and purged the spiritual bond once held by the first man, essentially making him dead to the things of Almighty G-d. There was no more inspiration from within, no more talking without some form of mediation to re-establish a dialogue with the Creator, and the need eventually to have a hardcopy of the instruction manual once the parole record became too long for a normal person's memory. All of it points to Jesus Christ as becoming that Mediator, from before the cross, to eternity as He is acknowledged as LORD.

If the premise of inspiration without a confirmation of the written record were true, there would be a contravening aspect to that, that every man woman and child were completely obedient to Almighty G-d and that our thoughts would be in complete conformance to His. By HIS WORD, both of these ideas are to be discounted. First, because the Adversary sees to it that no man, woman or child has that perfect relationship, having deposed mankind from the original position of sinlessness, and, second, where would any human except Jesus Christ have the temerity to say that they think as G-d thinks and has the power that G-d has. It is plainly seen that humanity definitely has a sin issue, and the WRITTEN WORD provides the remedy for that, to believe in Jesus Christ as LORD, to love as He loves, and to be obedient to His inspired WORD as He has commanded.

It is a age old fallacy that the Holy Bible is deficient in its purpose to inform, infuse and inspire faith to those who hold to the Truth spoken of by Jesus Christ. If a person has accepted Jesus Christ as LORD, the Holy Spirit does provide the inspiration necessary to re-establish the relationship that Almighty G-d desires to have with every man, woman and child, and yet so few find the truth enough to seek Him out.

Only in faith are the eyes truly opened, and the guessing and confusion that plagues mankind is replaced with an ever increasing knowledge of what Almighty G-d has for each of us, just as He has had written from the very beginning though His grace, mercy and love. It is so written, because, by His inspiration, He has said so.
