We can see the plural form of God in the Bible, where He refers to Himself as "us."

Gen 1:26 God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness..."

Let's see this reference book.
The enigmatic "we" of Genesis
(Myteries of the Bible, Reader's Digest Association Inc., p.21)

THE CLIMAX of Genesis 1 and the heart of its mystery comes in the description of the creation of adam, the Hebrew term meaning "human being" or "humanity." God had said, "Let there be light." But now, God does not say, "Let there be man." Instead he says, "Let us make man (adam) in our image, after our likeness" (Gen 1:26)... This passage has long been a puzzle for interpreters of the Bible.

If God the Creator is God the Father alone, He should have said,
"Let me make man in my image, in my likeness."
But God said,"Let us..."
This proves that there is not only God the Father.
Why did God refer to Himself as "us"?
When we see in Gen 1:27, it says,
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them."
This means that God exists as the male image and as the female image.
That's why God said, "Let us make man."
Therefore, according to the teachings of the Bible, we must believe in not only God the Father but also God the Mother.

    God called Himself in plural words. how can we deny the words that God said directly ? God is not only one, but two, we can understand it from the fact that there are two types of people exist on earth. It is because humans like males and females were created in the image of God. Specifically the male were created in the image image of God the Father and female were created in the female image of God the Mother.. Just as we call the male image of God "God the Father", so we should call the female image of God " God the Mother !

    People have prejudice that there is only God the Father. However, if there is Father, there should be Mother, isn't there? Actually, the Bible testifies about the existence of God the Mother or Heavenly Mother from Genesis the Revolution. We have both God the Father and God the Mother. For this reason, God said "Let us make man in our image in our likeness" when creating man. If there is only God the Father, it should be "Let me make man in my image in my likeness." God the Mother is the last secret we should realize in this age. The World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG) members believe in both God the Father and God the Mother based on the Bible (Revelation 22:17.)

    Why did God refer himself as Us?
    It is because God Elohim means there are God the Father and God the Mother.
    God the Father and God the Mother created male and female according to God's images.

    Amen, God expressed himself as Elohim God in Bible. Many theological scholars and teachers have had question why God call himself as Elohim meaning Gods. But the answer is in Bible.
    Through the process to creating man and woman, God created them as like the image of him, and man and woman were created. It means God has two images - man's image and woman's image.
    So, the answer is as God the Father who has the images of man exist, as God the Mother who has the image of woman also exist from the Genesis.

    God, who was presented as "we," said to each other like this.
    "Let's make a man in our own shape. Let's make a man and a woman in our own image."
    So there are two kinds of people. It is not three or one.
