Theimage of the invisible God
Godis not a man
but he can reveal himself in and through a man or whatever form. 1 Tim. 3  And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, John. 14  Yeshua saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father? Col.1....his dear Son:,  In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:  Who is the image of the invisible God,
thefirstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:  And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. . And he is the head of the body, the church - set-apart ones. Heb.1  Who (The Word - Messiah) being the brightness of His (The Father) glory, and the express image of his (The Father) person,
andupholding 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;
Talmud- Mas. Baba Metzia 86b:
saysthe Holy One showed up in a form Abraham could see.
And the Lord appeared unto him in the plains of Mamre: and he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day. 30
Whatis meant by ‘in the heat of the day’? — R. Hama son of R. Hanina said: It was the third day from Abraham's circumcision, 31
andthe Holy One, blessed be He, came to enquire after Abraham's health; [moreover,] he drew the sun out of its sheath, 32
sothat the righteous man [sc. Abraham] should not be troubled with wayfarers. He sent Eliezer out [to seek travellers], but he found none. Said he, ‘I do not believe thee’. (Hence they say there — sc. in Palestine — slaves are not to be believed.) So he himself went out, and saw the Holy One, blessed be He, standing at the door; thus it is written, Pass not away, I pray thee, from thy servant. 33
Buton seeing him (the Holy One) tying and untying [the bandages of his circumcision], He said, ‘It is not well that I stand here’; hence it is written, And he lifted up his eyes and looked, and lo, three men stood by him, and when he saw them, he ran to meet them: 34
atfirst they came and stood over him, but when they saw him in pain, they said, ‘It is not seemly to stand here.’35
Who were the three men? — (they are not) Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael. Michael came to bring the tidings to Sarah [of Isaac's birth]; Raphael, to heal Abraham;36
and Gabriel, to overturn Sodom. 37
Butis it not written, And there came the two angels to Sodom at even?38
—Michael accompanied him to rescue Lot. [The Writ] supports this too, for it is written, And he overthrew those cities,39 not, and they overthrew: this proves it.
Why is it written in the case of Abraham, [And they said,] So do, as thou hast said;40
Thethree men above are not Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael.
Let's read the verses in Gen. 18
Gen. 18 - The Lord - from singular to plural forms
 And the LORD appeared unto him in the plains of Mamre: and he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day;
 Now Abraham and Sarah were old and well stricken in age; and it ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women.
 Then Sarah denied, saying, I laughed not; for she was afraid. And he said, Nay; but thou didst laugh.
 And the LORD said, Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do;
 And the LORD said, If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes.
