You are making your own rabbit hole by reading things into the question I asked that had nothing to do with the image of man.Nah, I'm not going down that rabbit hole. Either you believe the image of man originated from God's Own Image, or you don't, and that is why the angels that appeared on earth also have the image of men.
In order to believe what you say, that in order for angels (and even Christ before His 1st coming) to appear with the image of man on earth, they had to put on a flesh human body, the burden of proof for that idea lay upon you.
2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by His Son, Whom He hath appointed heir of all things, by Whom also He made the worlds;
3 Who being the brightness of His glory, and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;
These below Scriptures are about the appearance of The Father and Son in the Heavenly, not on earth. Since they are shown with the image of 'man', that proves what I've been saying, that the image of man originated from God's Own Image Likeness in the Heavenly, and thus did not originate with flesh.
26 And above the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone: and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man above upon it.
I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, Whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of His head like the pure wool: His throne was like the fiery flame, and His wheels as burning fire.
13 I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought Him near before Him.
Here is my original question in post # 148 : Where does it say in scripture that God created angels in His likeness as all I read there in Genesis 1:26-27 is that man was created in His image, after our likeness.
Please quit reading into things that are not written in what one post.
