I hope by now you no longer regard me a stranger and by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ I pray that we all should be on the same page, and what we see is what God reveals to us. Some situations requires God himself to properly assess and make a decision for either to get his hands dirty or to send the word but this one required him.
Genesis 1:26 (KJV) And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
Let us firstly define these following words to get proper clarity on things and I used Oxford dictionary.
1. Image is defined as the appearance of something as seen in a mirror or through lense.
2. Likeness is defined as be like another person or thing.
3. Dominate is defined as control by being stronger or more powerful.
Now we have properly defined those three items which should be taken into account in the process of creating us human beings, so let us see how God satisfied the requirements; see 1 John 5: 7
1 John 5:7 (KJV) For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
This is my interpretation and God was saying since they were three in one they should create a man in the same format of three beings working together in harmony as one. Jesus Christ does look exactly like his father and also the father does look exactly like Jesus Christ, so image and likeness is covered on John 10: 30 I and my father are one, and also John 12: 45 and he that see me see him that sent me; and Holy Spirit covers the last part because he is omnipresent and lives inside everyone John 14: 16-17. God rules the heaven, the earth and everything that lives in them.
Do we meet the requirement of three in one through the image, in the likeness and lastly do we possess dominance? Let us read 1 John 5:8
1 John 5:8 (KJV) And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.
Man is the combination of three living beings just like God the father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost; so start speaking properly you are three in one; the Spirit, the Water and the blood and all three agree in one. We are the living gods on earth and we rule the earth, and everything that lives in it, and that was the clear command from Genesis 1: 26 do not be mistaken.
I need to show you that the angels were not part of this discussion like we were taught, read Genesis 19: 1-11 here two angels looked exactly like man and Lot requested them to stay for the night, and the people of the place because they could not discern they wanted to sexually abuse the two men. Looking at this verse it's true the angels do possess the image and the likeness of the Son of God, but they are not allowed to exercise dominance, read Revelation 22: 9; here John went down on his knees to worship the angel but the angel refused him because him also is a servant, fellow brother and a subject to God. Now it is clear that angels are not permitted to exercise dominance at all so when God said, let us make man he surely was not speaking to angels, but three were talking to one another.
