"Let us make man in our image, after our likeness..."
This verse has been used by trinity believers for many years, but the original hebrew understanding and the definition of Elohim will make this
perfectly clear and NOT explained by the trinity, nor aliens, nor multiple gods.
Elohim = the name of the God family in time.
Like a family name here in physical mankind aka the "Smith's". Smith is a name which all the members of the Smith family bare. It identifies them as
one united family, and sheds light on who they were and what they did (blacksmiths) at the time they were named.
Currently there are only 2 members of Elohim; Yahweh Elohim (God Almighty, the creator of all things, eternally existing) and Jesus Christ Elohim (His
son, the high priest and king of kings, born of Mary, not eternally existed).
God's plan in time is to create billions of members of Elohim through the creation of physical mankind. Our ultimate purpose in life as a whole is to
become Elohim. God created a plan to accomplish that end in perfection over time. God's annual holy days, commanded to be kept forever and
throughout your generations, teach physical mankind about the plan for the salvation of all and enterance into Elohim. The weekly sabbath is the
broadest overview of that plan. 6 days you can go about your business but the 7th day is set aside for holy use and purpose.
"a day is as a a thousand years..."
6 days = 6000 years (ending on Pentecost 2013) for mankind to govern themselves apart from God, create their own cultures, governments, religions,
laws etc.; by giving mankind this freedom, God is actually teaching mankind that all ways of life apart from His lead to suffering, pain and
ultimatelty death; the world you see around you is the proof of this claim.
7th day = next 1000 years (millenial reign of the Kingdom of God i.e. ELOHIM over the physical earth) After Pentecost of 2013 physical mankind that
still remains on earth (after the death of billions soon to occur) will be ruled over by God's family (Elohim) which will then be made up of 144,000
new members (those redeemed in the last 6000 years as a result of growing in unity and oneness with the mind/spirit of God Almighty) this group
includes the prophets worked with externally in the OT by God directly, as well as those in God's true church during the last 2000 years that were
blessed to have God's holy spirit dwell in their minds to be worked with internally because the Pasover sacrifice of Jesus Christ has made the Holy
Spirit accessable to mankind (as pictured in the Holy Day of Atonement). They include Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, Aaron, David, Solomon, Mary,
Joseph, the Apostles and other varias members of the Body of Chirst/Church of God throughout time.
In the 6000 years of the age of mankinds self rule only 144,000 individuals were worked with for the purpose of qualifying to become members of Elohim
at the sounding of the 7th trumpet begining on the day of Pentecost 2013. Currently every single one of them are dead laying in the ground according
to God's will (except a very few still alive today), on that day, they will be resurrected to immortal spirit life as members of the family of God
(Elohim), now brothers and sisters with Christ for eternity.
It is the Elohim of God that rules the age to come with 144,001 members (Jesus Christ the king of kings) they are the Temple of God with all its
members living stones fit perfectly together with Jesus Christ as the chief corner stone.
So to review the verse in Genesis:
"Let us to make man in our image, in our likeness"
a better English translation is thus:
"Allow Elohim (the God Family) to transform over time mankind into the image (character; since God is spiritual and not physical, this image is
spiritual/mind/thinking/character) of Elohim (the God family, now and into the future) in Elohim's (the God Family) way of thinking."
When this was uttered there was only one in Elohim (Yahweh Elohim), God used the present progessive form of Elohim because His plan includes billions
of members being added to His family when all is finished. It means that throughout the next 7000+ years of the physical existance of mankind, let
all members of Elohim share in the work of transforming mankind into the same manner of thinking as Elohim, so that all can become spiritual children
of God the Father forever at one with the way of thinking that leads to peace, happines and prosperity for all life in existance.
We were created to become members of Elohim over time according to God perfect plan of salvation, the trinity tricks mankind into thinking that the
God family is a closed door of 3 beings, this is a deception influenced by a jealous being (Satan) who knows that angels were NOT created to become
Elohim, and therefore he has tried to convince mankind that they cannot become what Christ became.
