"Mysteries of The Bible"

In Genesis 1:26
Then God said, "Let Us make man in our image, according to Our likeness, let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creams on earth.

Then in Genesis 1:27
So God created man in His own image; image of God.

In Genesis 3:22
Then the Lord said, "Behold, the man has become like one of Us, to know good and evil. And now, lest he put his hand and take also of the tree of life and eat, and live forever.

*How & Why did versus 1:26 - 1:27 all of a sudden change from "Us & Our" to "His"?
*Who is "Us & Our"? Is he referring to Angels and Demons?

Genesis 2:24
Man shal leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife and they shall become one flesh.
(Note that this is before where Adam and Eve ate the "Forbidden Fruit" in 3:6 - 3:7

*We know father mentioned here is "God" thy father. But who is his mother?

Also another issue is some Christian people say that Adam and Eve weren't blind at first but in Genesis 3:4 The Serpent said to the woman, "You will not sureley die. 3:5 For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.
3:6 So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave it to her husband with her, and he ate.
3:7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they

The "us and our" referred to is all God. A singular God with three separable parts. That is God The Father, Son and Holy Spirit. In human terms, that would be soul, body and spirit. That is the image and likeness that man was created in.

While this was written before Adam and Eve ate the fruit of the tree of knowledge, it was referring to future generations, to be applied to all men following Adam. It could not have referred to Adam, since Adam had no mother.

No Adam and Eve weren't blind. You could think of them as children. Have you ever watched young children playing? Nudity means nothing to them. It isn't until later that their eyes are "opened", and they see nudity as something shameful, something to be hidden. That is what happened to Adam and Eve, when they ate of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, they lost their innocence. Their eyes were "opened" to what they were ignorant of before.
