1 In the beginning Elohim created heaven and earth.
2 The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep water.
The Ruach Elohim was hovering over the water.
26 Then Elohim said, “Let us make humans in our image, in our likeness. NOG
26 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness," NIV
The word Humans and Mankind is Adam.
15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him.
19 Then they asked him, “Where is your father?”
“You do not know me or my Father,” Jesus replied. “If you knew me, you would know my Father also.” 20 He spoke these words while teaching in the temple courts near the place where the offerings were put. Yet no one seized him, because his hour had not yet come.
42 Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I have come here from God. I have not come on my own; God sent me. 43 Why is my language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say. 44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. 45 Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe me!
Keep it firmly in mind: we are the Lord as children of Adam. Israel is Yahweh's first Son. How can I confirm this from scripture? Remember here, Adam is the firstborn over all creation. If you wish to argue that Adam was not born, but formed, then move on to Cain / Abel. Israel is still later as a Son for Yahweh (his own firstborn).
22 Then tell Pharaoh, ‘This is what Yahweh says: Israel is my firstborn son. 23 I told you to let my son go so that he may worship me. But you refused to let him go. So now I’m going to kill your firstborn son.’”
24 Along the way they stopped for the night. Yahweh met Moses and tried to kill him.
Genesis 9 then clears it all up with the command of Elohim (Father) to Yahweh.
6 Whoever sheds human blood, by humans his blood will be shed,
because in his image, Elohim made humans.
Note from the Book, Thus Saith the Flame to the Spark
Is Jesus the Father? He is one with the Father, as we all are.
Is the Son of God the one true God? Who are you before creation? Were YOU in the Son and in Glory with the Father before creation? Who are you as the first face of creation?
Who was the scapegoat? The Lord's old nature (Yahweh). This is the untold story, which is the burden and job we each share to overcome our own old nature to judge others. Just as Yahweh judged and shed blood, Jesus walked away from the temptation for this kingdom on Earth. In place of the Kingdom of David, he rules Himself as the example of unity and equality.
Don't judge me for informing you. Love the Lord. YOU are the one you Love in others. If you get this Unity and Love, then the Identity of the Son of God is not far from your mind. Look in the mirror and remember who you were before creation engaged. We are all the Lord as images of the Father.
Bhakti and Sattva
Define who you/we are from the Words. Ask the question once again:
Is Jesus God the Father, or the Son of God?
The answer is yes. The Absolute contains the whole. We are all this.
