    R4Love; The Bible says that there are three Divine Persons in heaven; the Father the Word and the Holy Spirit. Jesus said many times that He and the Father are one and that He is "I AM" and that He does everything He sees the Father do; even raising the dead. When God said, "Let us make man in our image," I AM was pronouncing our very coming into being; and so we were made entirely by God's Words.

    I have a question. I just started reading and in Gen. 1:26, it states "...Let us make man in our image, after our likeness". Who was He talking to?

    Verse 1: This verse shows that originally the earth was full of people who spoke only one language.
  • A disciple
    Mr. Smith; Consider what the LORD said, with the view that they had raised up a city and a tower of rebellion against the heavens. Read Psalm 2 (for example), and think of that unrestrained "imagination" as that they thought to cast God out from the world and all influence upon the hearts and minds of men; like they do still to this day. The evil seed planted in men's souls, is coming to the full.
