Who were with God when He created Adam and Eve?


Regarding the creation of Man, Genesis 1:26 says, "And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and overall the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth."

We can notice that the text uses the pronouns "us" and "our". These pronouns are telling us that more than one person is involved in creation. There is no question that the "Almighty God", also known as the Father, is involved. The question is who was with Him?

Some people propose that God was talking with the angels. But this cannot be! Nowhere in the Bible is an angel described as capable of creating.

A careful study of the Bible reveals two other persons who are capable of creating. One is The Holy Spirit. Job 33:4 says, "The Spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life." Another is Jesus Christ. Referring to Jesus Colossians 1:16 says, "For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him."

Apparently, the three persons of the Godhead were involved in the creation, The Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit. Thus, the pronouns "us" and "our" were used.
