God was talking to God, so if God did not talk to him self and reason to himself me and you, would never experience the existence
MockingBird's comment on 2015-09-05 12:11:40:
I believe God is talking about He and Jesus : I am made after the image of God : I am not really smart enough to figure that out , So I will take God's word at face value : So therefore God has given to me to have dominion : Authority over all that He created : It does not have authority over me : For example : I go fishing and I command those fish to come to me . As also over all alse : I still have a way to go to be able to get this established in my heart !!!! I have dominion over all : God did not say over man : God doesn't have authority over man : He gave me the ability to make decisions : I choose to make those decisions with Holy Spirit help : That way , I know I made the right choice : I have God's word to be able to discern between that which is Good and evil !!!

Jesus says to John, do not worship me: worship God. revelations 22:8-16. He states he is a fellowservant and a Brethren to prophets. Jesus clearly says he is not God, mark 16:19 he sits on the right hand of God. Jesus is the son of God, and says I am the root and offspring of David and the bright and morning star. Authorized King James Bible 1611 Rev 22:16 also in Authorized Wycliffe bible1382
Adedayo Mercy's comment on 2015-07-03 08:38:42:
Reading John 1:1-5, we will find out that The Word was with God in the beginning. Verse 1 says 'lInux the beginning was the Word, the Word was with God and God was the word ' '. So if you agree with the Bible, you will know that The word became flesh Jesus . And the Same John 1 says that by the Word was everything made and without Him there was nothing made that was made. That means God was using the Word Jesus to create everything and that means the consent of the Word Jesus , which is also God according to John 1:1 was needed in the creation process. If so, who was God now speaking to that ' 'Let us make man in our own image and likeness? ' ' If not Jesus. Now that said, if you believe in the Word in John 4:24 ' 'God is a spirit: and they that worship Him must Worship Him in truth and in Spirit ' ', then there is no reason for you now not to know that God is Jesus and God is the Spirit. The reason why He is called the HolySpirit is because there can be evil spirit but His own Spirit is Holy. I pray that God explains it to you Himself the Same way He did to me so that no indoctrination will be a veil on your face. Amen!!!

MICHELLE YOU ASKED A QUESTION WHO IS US AND WHO IS OUR IN GENESIS 1:26 GOD WAS TALKING TO GOD THE SON AND GOD THE HOLY GHOST AND GOD HIMSELF IS GOD THE FATHER AND THEY ARE 3 PERSONS IN ONE GOD

Rev 10:7's comment on 2015-02-22 23:31:11:
John 1:1-2 "in the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God " This word "Logos " that was with God at the beginning was the Theophany before manifested in a Physical body. So God is talking to his Theophany. For example: there 's a body that 's waiting for us as soon as we leave this one, so in there we enter into that body and that 's the kind of body that God was when He said "Let us make man in our own image and in our likeness ". Lastly: According to John 1:1-2,,,that Theophany came down and was made flesh and dwelt among us, to redeem the man.He 's not talking to the Angels nor Trinity, He 's talking to his Theophany.

The Word Heavenly Father 's Son is the One to create the man in an image of God according to his likeness.... READ on Hebrews ' verses of Chapter First from 8th to 10th.... REMMY: Father gave everything to his Son and no one have taken anything not one out of a hand....Matthew 11:27

I have read and I understood it..God after he created us Human according to his image,acts,mind..he created us on his image for us not to suffer,not to be troubled..he is a living God
Kimberley Carter's comment on 2015-01-17 10:55:29:
"us " and "our " is GOD speaking in the royal plural just as the Queen of England does today when she says something like "we are not amused ". She is speaking as a ruler she is not more than one person, but using a figure of speech to emphasize that she represents the whole of her country. Also GOD is spirit neither male nor female so "man " in GOD 's image - this is man 's spiritual creation and the second chapter focuses on the body soul part of man being formed, made, and created.
Juphil's comment on 2015-01-12 11:29:14:
read the following verse 27- God created them n0t They created them for God is One. When we read Luke 1:19, means He is talking to the angelic hosts,
Portia's comment on 2014-09-29 05:28:30:
He created us in His image..not meaning that we should have similar faces,but he created us with character as His own thus in His likeness.
Shay's comment on 2014-08-13 12:45:16:
Jehovah God created man in His image, according to his likeness. God thus endowed humans with qualities that mirror his own.
Tony's comment on 2014-07-23 05:59:38:
I have read all the comments and didn 't find much to agree with. In my opinion if anyone believe in whatever they believe in that 's is rights he owns that rights. Some people while expressing their own rights are doing so as if to say the way they see it is the right way and no other way. Now my common sense leads me to believe that since GOD created man and woman in their own image, then we have a Heavenly Father and a Heavenly Mother whom I believe is the us who was mentioned. The bible didn 't clearly state that GOD was distinctly three people in or as one, that is clearly an opinion of someone who believed so. Also from my understanding there are many changes in the Bible of today to back up what they are teaching us. Interestingly from reading the 1st commandment I see Jesus as a image or idol, now I close by saying people of the true and living GOD remember to worship GOD in spirit and in truth.
Christopher Johnson's comment on 2014-06-28 10:43:01:
Want to know a secret??? We are "all " created in the image of GOD, The Image of God is actually "everything " Every Thing in the universe is "Us "... "Our " life on Earth is actually "Our " mid life. We Spirit and Soul came into bodies Flesh, and Blood comprised of space dust. Temporal Particle compilations ordained by GOD. Now see that we existed in the heavens before we arrived here, yet we don 't totally remember "Our " previous life, because It "was, is, and will be that which is outside of "time " eternally. Here on Earth we experience the "trap " of time, and therfore are limited in "Our " Infinate minds. as we perish, we are bought back to "our " eternal subjection wether it be heaven or hell, time is no longer binding you...Now with that being said, when we obtain the gift of eternal life, we then embark on "Our " quest into the previously unknown universe before "Us ". There for millions, or billions of years into our eternal life we may "Become " Anything out of everything...Maybe a Comet, a planet, a Building, our favorite "alien ", a robot, even a slice of cheese. Just Kidding, "Us ", and "Our " refers to the trinity, the angels, and all the Host of Heaven... ENJOY!

Toni's comment on 2014-06-08 06:42:02:
God made man to be in the image of the Father, the Word and the Holy Ghost. He made man to be spiritual like Him. God said let us meaning there was more than one person that was with Him. John testified that Jesus was the Word and that all things were made by Him, and without Him, was not anything made that was made. John 1 3. Jesus is the Word of God. He is not God. The words that came from God 's mouth was Jesus. Without Jesus, nothing could have been created. God 's design was that man be created in a fleshly body, but have His spiritual nature that He could dwell with daily. God said let us make man in our image, after our likeness. It says in the word, we are to be like Christ. Before sin entered the world, we were like Christ in His spiritual form. God reveals His Word to them who seek the truth. Man 's wisdom is foolishness to God. It 's carnal and sheer vanity. In fact, God takes foolish things to confound the wise. 1 Corinthians 1 27. Let the word of God not be a stumblingblock. God has a Son and His name is Jesus. He was in the beginning with God and will judge the whole world according to righteousness.
JOE's comment on 2014-06-06 03:22:45:
the phrase "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness " may be referring to the beings who came from somewhere in the universe and gave birth to mankind on earth. is it really that hard to believe? intelligent life outside our universe? the universe is billions of years old. I can 't possibly imagine we are the only intelligent life. if so, what a waste of space. I do not know of anywhere in the bible that says we are alone in the universe.
PETER's comment on 2014-05-07 09:44:48:
does that mean there are 3 Gods, 'if let us ' here is reffering to the trinity
