To begin with, God said, “Let us make man in our image (Genesis 1:27, 9:6).
Then Adam was made in God’s image, and a son of Adam, Seth, was the image of Adam. And so our forms are all similar.
In the Garden of Eden, God walked and talked with Adam and Eve,
and they hid from Him after sinning. He killed an animal to clothe them with the skin…the
first sacrifice. He has memory, the five senses, can feel anger and sorrow. God in human form is “theophanous”
(a visible manifestation of a diety). He changes His mind and has other human qualities.
He talked with Adam and Moses…spoke as Jesus was baptized (Matt 3:17)
saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” He said essentially the same wording in other Gospels.
He spoke at the Transfiguration (Matt 17:5), and as Jesus prayed before the Crucifixion (John 12:28. Also in 2 Peter 1:17,
again saying essentially the same words.
33:20 says “Thou canst not see my face; for there shall no man see me, and live.” And Exodus 33:23 says “”thou
shalt see my back parts, but my face shall not be seen.” (KJV). Yet in Exodus 33:11 and Deuteronomy 34:10, it says
Moses saw him “face to face.“ We wonder about God’s meanings here.
God is a spirit (John 4:24), but can also take bodily form, as Jesus did when He
appeared in the locked room where the Apostles were probably hiding from authorities and wondering what would happen to them
I find 15 statements in the Bible
that God sits on a throne with Christ sitting at His right hand. A clear indication that He can have bodily form.
(The words “sitting at His right
hand” are found in Matthew 26:64, Mark 14:62, 16:19, Luke 20:42,
Acts 2:33, 34, 7:55, 56, Romans 8:34, Colossians 3:1, Hebrews 1:3, 1:13, 8:1, 10:12, and 12:2).
