The Father being the image of the all one God can not be explained any better than as it was described in the book of John: John 1-2, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2) The same was in the beginning with God.” The Word and God was together all one in the beginning as there could not have been a beginning if there was no Word sent forth to begin it. Now God was there before the world was along with the Word, as they awaited the time to come to begin the world. Jesus sounded just like a little child in the candy store as he reminisced about that once glorious time from his past life before being made flesh: John 17:5, “And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.” I can imagine the little baby Word, just laying there all one with he PA PA, as he awaited his time to come forth to the world. And once Jesus, the head of the Church, had finished his work on earth in bodily form; he happily said with urgency, as stated in the above scripture “and now, O Father,” return me to my position in the all one God with the glory I had with thee before the world was.
John 1:18, “No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.” You know we can now kind of get a better understanding of where, and why the all one God made his plans on how to make man: Genesis 1:26, “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: ok, that’s all of the verse that is needed to be read. God had to realize how much of a great job the one from us God had done in the beginning as the Word coming forth from his bosom to get the beginning of the world started and finished. Now after the great debut by the Word at the beginning of the world, this premise made it clear that when the time comes centuries later, that the Word should be the one from us God made flesh to dwell amongst man to behold the glory of the only begotten of the Father. I can imagine us God realizing to himself, this is our image, after our likeness, “let us now mass produce man after this, and let man also walk in the fullness of the God head as do us God.
Ok, now back to the evening and the morning of the sixth day: Genesis 2:1, Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. Yeah, with the great success of the first six days of creation, and with the premise made about the future Church based on these results, us God seemed to have a great plan. It would give God a time with man in the image and likeness of the all one God, just as promising as the beginning creation of heaven and earth had been, and as the finish to come centuries later had now been surmised to be; and all three of them would be powered in the image and likeness of the all one God. So how many of you can imagine going to the store to purchase bookends to contain your very special edition of books in which you hold near and dear? Suppose the store just had a single bookend of the ones you really wanted, but they could place an order to get the other matching one for you. You would not have to surmise, or guess what your order would be like because you have the exact image and likeness in your hand. And since you have the books already to place between them, you pretty much know what the image and likeness of the middle is going to look like.
Well, God wanted to know what the middle with man would look like now since the Word used to make the bookends go so well, would be the same Word used to make the time with man in the middle to go so well. We can see God start the production to make man all one in the same image of the all one God: Genesis 1:27, “ So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” Here we can see the all one man in the image of the all one God: just as God had the “Word” all one with him in his bosom, the male man had the female man all one with him in his body. As the scripture above points out, the male and female man was made in the image of God with the likeness of God being something that they would become as the relationship with God grew. And when Jesus did come into the world, he already had a step up in the image and likeness of God because he was the Word made flesh, and the Word was God. And plus, Jesus only did what his Father told him to do anyway: a spitting image of his Father! So we now have man, male and female, with both being made in the image of God as all one man. Now up to this point of their all one man creation, so far so good.
Then something happened: Genesis 2:16-18, “And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: 17) But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die. 18) And the Lord God said, it is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.” Now what made God go and say that it was not good for man to be alone in verse 18, or in other words, to be all one now? God can begin to see that his set up with the “Word” being all one with him, vs the male man set up with the female being all one with him, may not flow together in the same way as he once thought it would. And then I can see in the above verses in Genesis 2:16 & 17, where God commanded the man Adam, of what to eat, and of what not to eat again it appears. The thing that gets my attention here is how God commanded Adam in the past tense of the verb, which goes to tell me that God had either told him about this once before, or was saying it again as a repeated statement just to be sure that Adam was clear. Plus if the male man and the female man could not be obedient as one, it would be impossible for the all one man to be in the image of the all one God: the Word and God as all one are always on the same page, and the Word will only bring forth and do what God has said to bring forth and do.
We know at this point that God had already made the man Adam, and we know from scripture that when God made the man Adam, that he made the man Adam, male and female in the all one man: Genesis 1:27, “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” The question that comes to my mind at this stage is that if God had already created the male and the female of this alone, all one man, why would he need to create a help meet for Adam? I’m thinking why not just separate the two, and let them keep each other company, but what man as my self knows the mind of God, right? Now I do believe that God really wanted to keep the man in his image as all one, but he had to make sure that Adam would be obedient like a all one member would need to be. And keep in mind that we see in the scriptures in the previous paragraph that God commanded the man in the past tense not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of Good and evil. We should also note that it was after this command that God concluded that it was not Good for the man to be alone, or all one.
So I ask God how did he make sure that Adam the all one man, had or had not eaten of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil at this point while he was still all one? And we all know what happens with Eve once we get over in Genesis chapter three after the all one man, male and female, was a creation no more. Then I read two scriptures in which I had read many many times over in my life, but this was the first time that the Father had given me the insight to know the answer of how he proved for sure whether or not the all one man had eaten from the tree: Genesis 2:19-20, “And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof. 20) And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.” Let me answer this in reverse: first, God didn’t really have to form every beast of the field, or every fowl of the air to find the man a help meet at the very moment in which he was determining what to do with the man unless it was part of the determination. Plus God had already prepared for this moment, the man’s help meet, much earlier by already having created the male man and the female man in the all one man Adam. The reason that God did go ahead and form every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air at this moment was to help determine if whether or not Adam, the all one man, had actually eaten of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil while alone or as all one. The way that this would determine if whether or not the all one man Adam did eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil is this: when God brought every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air unto Adam to see what he would name them all, and really to see if he could name them all; the only way that Adam would have the knowledge to name every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air would only be possible if he had indeed eaten from the knowledge of the tree of good and evil. And at least now we also know better as to why Adam just stood by, and watched Eve eat the apple from the tree after God created the female man to be in her own body, and no longer in the image of the original all one man: God had commanded Adam earlier in the past tense not to eat of the tree because Adam had already eaten from the tree before when he was the all one man. So Yes Indeed, It Was Not Good For The Man To Be Alone, or as ALL ONE (Al-One).
The Father Still Does Love To Do The Body Good.
