(Gen 1:26-28)  And God [Heb: 'elohiym: gods (plural)] said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion [Heb: reign, rule] over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them [in one unit]. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth [Jer 4:23-26], and subdue it [Heb: to tread down; to conquer, subjugate: bring into bondage, bring into subjection]: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

1.      (John 4:24)  God is a Spirit [invisible, (not material)]: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

2.      (1 John 3:1-3)  Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons [Gk: children] of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.

3.      (1 John 4:8)  He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love [Gk: agape; love, i.e. affection or benevolence; (plur.) a love-feast: (feast of) charity, dear /// to love (in a social or moral sense): (be-) love (-ed)].

4.      (1 John 4:16)  And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God [Gk: to stay (in a given place, state, relation or expectancy): abides, continues, stands], and God in him.
