Further Beyond Words

To fathom the invisible is quite an extravagant attempt.

Perhaps the source descriptions can grant an insight into the invisible.

Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”

So God created mankind in His own image, in the image of God He created them; male and female He created them.

- Genesis 1: 26-27

[ “God created mankind in His own image” ]

The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in Him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through Him and for Him.

- Colossians 1: 15-16

[ “Son is the image of the invisible God” ]

Above the vault over their heads was what looked like a throne of lapis lazuli, and high above on the throne was a figure like that of a man. I saw that from what appeared to be His waist up He looked like glowing metal, as if full of fire, and that from there down He looked like fire; and brilliant light surrounded Him. Like the appearance of a rainbow in the clouds on a rainy day, so was the radiance around Him.

This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. When I saw it, I fell facedown, and I heard the voice of one speaking.

- Ezekiel 1: 26-28

[ “this was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord” ]

In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Yeshua:

Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to His own advantage; rather, He made Himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.

- Philippians 2: 5-7

[ “He made Himself... in human likeness” ]
