Why Did God Say “Let Us”?

Here is an inquiry from a sibling in Christ.

Gen 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our picture, after our similarity: and let them have domain over the fish of the ocean, and over the fowl of the air, and over the steers, and over all the earth, and over each crawling thing that creepeth upon the earth.

For what reason did God talk in the plural when He made man?

That is a sign, that each unrepented delinquent will die in the judgment, that the noble will be saved by the leniency of God. He offered one more hint at the consuming hedge. What was it when He gotten His runaway prophet? “I have heard the calls of My kin, and I’ve recollected My pledge”? He offered another hint there, that He was a pledge keeping God, that He remembered all that He said, each guarantee that He made. He offered a hint at the consuming bramble, “And I’ve come down Father George Rutler to convey them.” Watch God in His methods of work. At the point when He made the sky and earth, He assembled the Angels, and He said, “Let us.” Every spot in the Scripture where He did anything generally, “Not Me, but rather My Father.” But when it go to the arrangement of recovery, He came alone; no one was with Him. He was the one in particular that could come. An Angel couldn’t do it. Another man called His child, couldn’t do it. One called something different, a sacred virgin, or a blessed mother, or- – or some holy person, couldn’t do it. God needed to come. From the message a Super Sign.

He was addressing holy messengers since he wanted their investment in his work. Above all else notice that after God says, “let us” first and afterward the sacred text says in refrain 27, “So God made man in his own picture, in the picture of God made he him; male and female made he them.”

See that Moses utilized the SINGULAR individual pronouns “HIS own picture” “picture of God made HE him, male and female made HE them.”

So the plural pronoun by definition implies he was addressing somebody who WAS NOT HIMSELF, ie not God. God is ONE individual as proven in large numbers of sacred texts that utilization particular individual pronouns. In this refrain it obviously shows that he was addressing somebody OTHER than himself.

An extraordinary illustration of this is in Isaiah 6.

At that point flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his grasp, which he had taken with the utensils from off the special stepped area: And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath contacted thy lips; and thine injustice is removed, and thy sin cleansed. Likewise I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom will I send, and who will go for us? At that point said I, Here am I; send me.
