Created in the image of God

And God created man in His own image, in the image of Gpd He created Him; male and female He created Him. (Genesis 1:27)
The Scripture shows many male and female manifestations of God. Sometimes they describe God as father and king, sometimes as mother and queen. Those expressions must not been taken literally; it belongs to the holy poetry. From God's perspective, there is only oneness. This is the hidden message behind the story of creation.
God is not subject to any limitation of space nor time. He is at the same time beyond space and within space; beyond this world and inherent in every iota of the earth. He is eternal and not confined to limitations of time; he is beyond time and within every moment filling them with his presence. God is beyond us and yet also within us. Being beyond time, space and beings, God manifests himself to us as well from the outside and from the inside.
God’s manifestations outside of time, space, beings belong to his masculine aspect, the ability to observe events objectively from the outside. God’s manifestations within time, space, and beings are his feminine aspect: the ability to participate from the inside of events. As Creator God is not subject to the human species, he is beyond gender male and female while being in every individual. Therefore, by creating man in his image, God made him a bisexual being. He created him male and female. (Genesis 1:27).
Afterward, when he considered that this human creature could not develop harmoniously to fill the earth and subject it, the Lord God said, It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him. (Genesis 2:17)
However, the man did not find this suitable help among the animals that God formed and presented him. Therefore, the Lord God put him to sleep, and separated the male part from the female part, into two different persons, a man and a woman - Adam and Eve. Although man was originally one “male-female” being, he was not aware of the true meaning of this mysterious oneness. Once separated into two, both could choose to join together to merge into a true union and experience the ecstasy of love.
Such a figurative way to describe the spiritual life by comparing it with sexuality suggests that the history of the man is in fact an awareness of its reunification with God, and that his spiritual life finds its fulfillment only in the supreme experience of divine love.
For this cause, a man shall leave his father und mother, and shall cleave to his wife; and the two shall become one flesh. This mystery is great; but I am speaking with reference to Christ and the church. (Ephesians5:31-32).
Since God separated the man and the woman, nobody can reflect alone the image of God. Hence, this innate desire for unity that leads them to attach to one another. When sex is an expression of true love, its fulfillment connects to the ultimate realization of the endless love.
What applies to the natural union between “husband and wife” is a metaphor for the true spiritual union between Christ and the Church. This holy spiritual sexuality is the hidden message behind the story of creation. It suggests life as a gradual process culminating in eternal love.
In the world to come, there will not be any more marriages since, without the body, we will be like angels,
Ministering spirits, sent out to render service for the sake of those who will inherit salvation. (e.g. Luke 20:34-35; Hebrews 1:14)
While waiting for the future world where love reigns endlessly, men and women have a mission to live by choosing to love others as they love God and realize that they are united with others and “one” with God. Experiencing this is the real, one and only, true divine love.
The Lord has made every thing for his own purpose, even the wicked for the day of evil. (Proverbs 16:4)
However, not to be mistaken about the role that plays the wicked in this world, the Psalmist specifies,
Loving-kindness will be built up forever; in the heavens Thou wilt establish Thy faithfulness. (Psalm 89:3).
By allowing the Holy Spirit to write God's Word in our heart and pour his love in it, we will discover that God's laws are really that grace our soul was waiting for in its weakness and needs.
The Spirit helps our weakness... and intercedes for us with groaning to deep for words. (Romans 8:26).
Amazing life energy fills then our being. And soon we will accomplish the will of God on earth as it is done in heaven, naturally with eagerness and joy.
God communicates to us from the outside, by his word, what we “can do”, but what we are “going to do” depends only on our own internal choice. When we choose “to do what we have to” we unite what is “divine in us” with the “divine beyond us”; that union manifests itself as light in this world.
God is “one”, but people knew nothing about it because this truth, which exceeds human understanding, is hidden between the lines of the story of creation. Revealed partly with the coming of Christ, it will be entirely only on the day of redemption.
In that day the Lord will be the only 'one’ and his name the only ‘one’. (Zechariah 14:9).
For God, everything is “unicity” and the creation is nothing else than an expression of his love. Despite the illusion of our separateness from God, we are in reality within God's “unicity” and permeated by it.
When Jesus recommended his disciples to his Father, he specified,
And the glory which Thou hast given me I have given to them; that they may be one, just as we are one; I in them, and thou in me, that they may be perfected in unity, that the world may know that thou didst send me, and dist love them, even as thou dist love me. (John 17:22-23).
