The Lord Jesus Christ is God He spoke in symbolic language many times while He was on the earth. The Holy Spirit who is God and moved men to write holy scripture also used symbolic language. But...unto us the creatures He has commanded Make no silmitude of any figure, the likeness of male or female, The likeness of any beast that is on the earth..etc. Please read Deuteronomy 4:14-19. My convictions on the matter...I respect your right to yours. All of Gods best to you.
