“Like – Us”

one of us

Genesis 3:22 Then the Lord God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of Us

Once Adam and Eve ate from the tree of the knowledge of Good and Evil, they had become aware of many things which they had not been aware of until that moment; things that obviously this Entity of the Godhead already was aware of.  We are aware from scripture that God is a Spirit and obviously He can manifest in the natural or physical world in other forms such as fire as in the Moses and the burning bush episode.

What has been bothering me is the wording in Genesis one and three of God being “US”. And as I read this passage this morning, it just jumped out at me again, “like one of Us”. I fully understand the concept of myself being like God with a body, a soul and a spirit that we, us, are made up of these different parts but when I have a child, I am not going to say, look, he is like one of me, I am going to say, look what we have begotten because it is the result of myself and my wife that have begotten the child and he is like one of “us”. “We” are two separate personalities with one mind that have joined ourselves together to conceive a child. I suppose at that point, we become one as the word says but “we” are still two entities. Thus I am still looking at the Godhead as several beings with one common mindset to create and watch over us. Am I making any sense or am I off my rocker so to speak? If anyone has any thoughts or care to give me any feedback, please feel free, I am open to listening.
