In Genesis God created everything according to their kind or to their image. God created all life, animals, birds, fishes etc to its kind. (Gen 1:21 to 25)
God duplicates everything in Heaven here on earth. What is created on earth is an image replication of what is in Heaven.
Then finally God said: “Let us make mankind in our image.” (Gen. 1:26)
In the new Testament there is quite a few references to this. 1 John 3:2 stated that we are the children of God.
In Psalm 82 the children of God is called “gods”
Think about it!! When we are reborn we are the image of God.
Enjoy your day.
