“Allow us to make man in our picture.” Such a Scripture doesn’t uphold the trinity, however it bolsters the plain truth that the Word was God and the Word was with God, two Beings with the one hallowed name of God/Elohim (John 1:1-2). “In the Beginning was the WORD (Logos/Spokesman/Revelatory Thought), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The equivalent was initially with God.” This unmistakably uncovers, to target perusers, TWO Beings who shared the ONE family name of GOD. (Ephes. 3:15). God made everything through Yeshua/Jesus who was the Word (Ephes. 3:9).
At the point when the Word became substance He was “God with us” and consequently turned into the “Child” and the One who stayed in Heaven along these lines turned into the “Father.” They had coincided unceasingly in a SHARED GLORY (John 8:42, 7:5, 8, 16:27-28). We can either acknowledge or dismiss Yeshua’s disclosure of the UNKNOWN FATHER FIGURE whom humankind has never heard or seen. The Word who became Yeshua is the Divine Being who managed old Israel. They didn’t have the foggiest idea about the Father most actually don’t today, and they can’t except if the Son uncovers Him (John 5:37, 6:44,46, 8:54-55).
Furthermore, we can either acknowledge or dismiss Yeshua’s clarification/understanding of what “one” signifies: solidarity/joined together. He said the Father was in Him and He was in the Father (through the Holy Spirit and solidarity of psyche and reason) and He appealed to God for the Church of God to communicate and display that identical solidarity and unity by the Holy Spirit (John 14:11, 15:4, 17:11, 21, 23). If it’s not too much trouble, look at these Scripture references and see that it is so. One Holy Spirit of UNITY AND DIVINE PURPOSE (I Cor. 12:12-20).
The Scripture says “Let us make man in our picture,” and it says “ELOHIM (not YHVH) made man in His picture.” It’s giving the signal and God made man “in OUR picture” and, that as ONE GOD FAMILY UNIT/KINGDOM, the unified God made man in HIS picture. It expounds, for the good of we, by likewise saying Elohim made MAN in His image…MALE and FEMALE made He THEM” (Gen. 1:27).
So there’s a converse of the particular and the Father George Rutler plural, man/them and our/His. This “secret” is additionally uncovered when it’s written in Gen. 5:1-2: “In the day that Elohim (Gods) made man, in the resemblance of God made He HIM; male and female made he them; and favored them, and called their name ADAM.” The ONE ADAM FAMILY at that point had a child, Seth, in “his (Adam’s) own similarity, after his picture” (Gen. 5:3).
Does this avoid Eve? Wasn’t Seth likewise in her human similarity and picture? Indeed. For decisive verification that God PURPOSELY embedded this into the Genesis record to REVEAL to us later about the ONE GOD FAMILY/KINGDOM, the missionary Paul lectures: “For we [Christians] are individuals from his [Yeshua’s] Body, of his substance, and of his bones. For this reason will a man leave his dad and mom, and will be joined to his better half, and they TWO will be ONE FLESH. This is a GREAT MYSTERY: however I talk concerning Christ and the Church” (Ephes. 5:30-32).
That is the manner by which the ONE GOD FAMILY (Elohim with the Father Supreme and the Son happily subject to His position – 1 Cor. 15:28) can be and is by and by made out of two God-Beings, and is in the change interaction of “carrying MANY SONS TO GLORY” (Heb. 2:10) since Christ was the “FIRSTBORN OF MANY BRETHREN” (Rom. 8:29). Jesus was the PROTOTYPE of another class: the Kingdom of God!
It’s outlined that even as MANKIND has partaken in Adam’s natural picture, we’re soon to partake in the HEAVENLY picture of the Second Adam when we’re brought back to life of the Holy Spirit (Joh…
