it is writen:Jesus answered them, "Is it not written in your Law, 'I have said you are gods'?
Psalm 82:6 "I said, 'You are "gods"; you are all sons of the Most High.
Genesis 1:26-27 Then God said, “Let US make man in OUR image, in OUR likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He Created him; male and female He created them.

Malachi 2:10 have we not all one Father? Did not God create us?

The premise that an attribute of god is omnipresent would infer that god permeates and penatrates through and in all substance and space at the same time. Since we are made of substance, god is through us, god Is everywhere at once. Therefore, is in, a part of, and is all people, places and things. Therefore, is me, and you and all people. I AM God.

I don't believe I am "a god", but if you're referring to God in the context of that omnipotent, omnipresent beingness that drives the universe then I'd say yes I Am God, or part thereof... at least that's the belief that I'm integrating right now.
I think when we step into the full realization of that God within, we'll be living the life we came here to live, and in fact then we won't be saying I Am God but rather We Are God.

I do not have to believe that I am a God, for I know that I am of God. When God created man out of clay, he breathe the breath of life into man giving man life, in fact, giving man his life to live through him, for him. It is said that the proof in the pudding, so how much more proof, we really want to be convinced!
Now for argument sakes, would we even be here if God did not choose to share his breath of life with us. I mean he crated man’s body out of clay, and as you know, clay is clay, and man would have remained a lifeless clay body, if God did not choose to breathe his breath of life into the clay body giving man life to live, and to create like he is living and creating!
In essence, we are all God’s creation, and he lives and dwells in all of us through the breath of life that is in all living thing that is God within, and God without, therefore all things are of God, and nothing is without God, so we are all an extension of God himself created in the flesh, Christians, and Non-Christians alike, for there is only one God, Source, Consciousness, and Universe alike!

Jesus came to show us who and what we are. He came to teach us our bodies are the temple of God. We and God are one. Once we accept Jesus as our personal savior we die from the world and are reborn a new creation in Christ one in harmony with the Father. This is the beginning of the wakening up as sons and daughters of God, any son or daughter grows up to be like his or her parents so we have this God gene in our genes that says we are to eventually grow up to be Gods ourselves. There is a very interesting book called the God Code by Gregg Braden. This book actually talks of that gene like it is a real thing we have within us, it is very interesting.
Back to what I was saying, Jesus left us and we never received a step by step "How to grow up into your God ." So here we are millenniums later and we for most humanity are a far way from being anything but toddler Christians. Some are preteens some teens maybe but no adult Christians that have grown to full God realization yet.
No.We are not God but deputy of HIM on earth.Everything is also not God but a proof of God.Being a deputy to God ,HE attributed us with some qualities and capabilites of HIM up to some extent.

We have untold talents, mysteries and powers that are on loan from God. We have a clock that is ticking all the time. What we learn in that time determines what happens to your essence. We are taught the opposite. We are taught dependency, when we are truly free. Apply in your world, and you will be free to advancement.

@ Concerned Citizen: Great Answer, you have so much biblical knowledge.
I have been reading your messages on this site and I think you might be able to answer some questions that I have.
If you would be kind enough to do so, let me know by replying to this message, then I will create a question and you can find it on my user page.
I would really appreciate your help. Thanks Concerned Citizen.
It appears that the 'Edit Function' did not allow me to post my COMPLETE answer. Therefore, I have posted the continuation of my 'EDIT (PART ONE)' below. If any of the mods knows how to combine both parts, please feel free to do so. If not, please allow this answer to stand 'as is' in order to preserve the totality of my 'EDIT (PART ONE)'. Thank you.

(16) 1 Thessalonians 5:5 You are all sons of the Light and sons of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness.
Since God is Light, then all men who are ‘born of God’ are ‘sons of the Light’ and belong to God.
Since God is Day, then all men who are ‘born of God’ are ‘sons of the Day’ and belong to God.
Since the world is Darkness, then all men who are NOT ‘born of God’ are ‘sons of the Darkness’ and belong to the world.
Since the world is Night, then all men who are NOT ‘born of God’ are ‘sons of the Night’ and belong to the world.

Do the following statements sound familiar??
Unfortunately, these are the types of statements which can also come out of the mouths of people who know ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about Jesus Christ or the Bible. Just because a person confidently utters such proclamations does NOT guarantee that their personal beliefs regarding the Bible are doctrinally correct. Firstly, the Bible must be allowed to DEFINE its own terms. Secondly, the Biblical terms in question must then be evaluated in their specific CONTEXTS. Failure to conform to both these logical rules for proper Bible interpretation will always result in GROSS DOCTRINAL ERROR.
In this case, the QUESTION is the following:
‘Do you think that you are a god?’
In this case, the PROOF TEXTS used in the ludicrous attempt to validate the claim that the Bible teaches that all men are ‘Divine’ or possess ‘Divine-essence’ are the following:
‘Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?’ [John 10:34]
‘I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.’ [Psalm 82:6]
This question is a great example of how a LACK OF BIBLICAL KNOWLEDGE will always lead to INCORRECT BIBLE INTERPRETATION. From these two Biblical verses, the lost and blind world would actually believe that the Bible teaches that all men are ‘Divine’ or possess ‘Divine-essence’. For some inexplicable reason, the lost and blind world proudly and fearlessly ASSUMES that, in the Scriptures, the term ‘god’ is the SAME as the term ‘God’. The following analysis will clearly demonstrate how this ignorant ASSUMPTION leads to spiritual INSANITY!
[A] In the Scriptures, what is the difference between the terms ‘god’ and ‘God’??
Any 4-year old child (who has never been dropped on his head and has at least one functioning eyeball) can plainly see that these two terms are written DIFFERENTLY!
OPEN YOUR EYES! These two terms are NOT the same!
In the Scriptures, the term ‘God’ is the NAME of THE Absolute Distinct Creator of all visible and invisible things. [As seen in Genesis 1:1]
In the Scriptures, the term ‘god’ is used to define THREE different groups depending on the CONTEXT:
(1) Israel’s judges and magistrates are called ‘gods’.
(2) The sons of God of the Heavenly Host are called ‘gods’.
(3) All the FALSE male and female deities of the PAGAN nations are called ‘gods’.
In the Scriptures, the term ‘god’ NEVER means ‘God’!
In the Scriptures, the term ‘god’ NEVER refers to anything that is ‘Divine’ or possesses ‘Divine-essence’!
The Scriptures do NOT teach the error of PANTHEISM which is featured in Hinduism, certain schools of Buddhism, and the fairy tale dogmas of the New Age Thought Movement.
In order to satisfy their all-consuming desire to be ‘God’, the deluded followers of Eastern religions, philosophies, and mythologies, and the deceived disciples of the New Age Thought Movement will commit the same FATAL ERROR when reading the Scriptures: They ignorantly ASSUME that the term ‘god’ is the SAME as the term ‘God’. This ignorant ASSUMPTION will lead to spiritual SUICIDE!
[B] What is the CONTEXT of [John 10:34]??
‘Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him. Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me? The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God. Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods? If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken; Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?’ [John 10:31-36]
During the course of this specific conversation, Jesus Christ reminds the Jews that God called them ‘gods’ unto whom ‘the word of God came’. Do YOU know unto whom ‘the word of God came’?? The word of God came unto ISRAEL in the form of the Law under Moses [Romans 3:1,2; 9:1-5]. To assist with the governing of the nation, Moses then selected God-fearing and able men to judge the people at all seasons by the Law of God. The Law stated that the judges were to be respected by the people of Israel. With the Law in their possession, the judges of Israel were able to judge all things from God’s Words. Thus, the judges of Israel were in a position of AUTHORITY within the nation and were called ‘gods’. [As seen in Exodus 18:13-26; 22:28]
Now, Jesus Christ would eventually walk the earth as a Jew in Israel. Jesus Christ was the ‘Word of God’ made Flesh. Jesus Christ referred to Himself as ‘the Son of God’ making Himself EQUAL to God. Thus, Jesus Christ claimed to possess absolute AUTHORITY. For this reason, the Jews called Jesus Christ a ‘blasphemer’ and wanted to stone Him. This specific conversation between Jesus Christ and those Jews who wanted to stone Him was over the question of absolute AUTHORITY.
In the CONTEXT of this specific conversation, Jesus Christ’s response to those Jews who wanted to stone Him may be paraphrased as follows:
“Hey, you Jews who want to stone Me! Since the word of God came unto YOU in the Old Testament and YOUR judges (ie. ‘gods’) had the AUTHORITY to judge all things by the Law of GOD, why do YOU now say that I’m blaspheming regarding the claim of my absolute AUTHORITY seeing that I’m really the Son of God??”
Thus, any HONEST observer can clearly see that quoting [John 10:34] as a PROOF TEXT in order to ‘prove’ the mystical fairy tale that all men are ‘God’ or possess ‘God-essence’ is complete and utter NONSENSE! The CONTEXT of [John 10:34] is a conversation between Jesus Christ and the Jews regarding the absolute AUTHORITY which Jesus Christ was claiming for Himself.
Also, any HONEST observer will notice with great ease that Jesus Christ NEVER told those Jews to ‘tap’ away their stress. Jesus Christ NEVER told those Jews that they were the ‘creators’ of their ‘Now’ moment through the ‘vibrational energies of their thoughts and feelings’. Jesus Christ NEVER told those Jews to write their ‘desires’ on a scrap of paper, put it in a box, and then forget about it so that ‘the Universe’ can eventually ‘mirror’ the ‘manifestation of their desire’ in their ‘Now’ moment. Jesus Christ NEVER told those Jews that they could change their ‘genetic make-up’ by using the ‘power of their minds’. In contrast, Jesus Christ was telling those Jews that ONLY HE WAS GOD! During the course of His ministry, Jesus Christ NEVER once told the Jews that they were ‘God’ or that they had ‘God-essence’.
Anybody who believes that the Scriptures teach the deluded dogmas of the New Age Thought Movement OR the pagan beliefs of the Eastern religions, philosophies, and mythologies has been completely BRAIN-WASHED!
[C] What is the CONTEXT of [Psalm 82:6]??
‘God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the gods. How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah. Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy. Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked. They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course. I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High. But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes. Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations.’ [Psalm 82]
In relation to [Psalm 82], I now ask YOU:
If a person CANNOT answer any of these questions, then that person should NOT be quoting [Psalm 82:6] in a feeble attempt to validate their fairy tale belief that all men are ‘God’ or possess ‘God-essence’. Any HONEST person would immediately swallow their PRIDE, learn how to KEEP QUIET, and start STUDYING the Bible. Precious personal OPINIONS, blind philosophical GUESSWORK, and vain MYSTICAL experiences are completely USELESS!
Thus, any HONEST observer can clearly see that quoting [Psalm 82:6] as a PROOF TEXT in order to ‘prove’ the mystical fairy tale that all men are ‘God’ or possess ‘God-essence’ is complete and utter NONSENSE! This Psalm has absolutely NOTHING to do with mankind. The CONTEXT of [Psalm 82:6] is a conversation between God and the sons of God of the Heavenly Host which prophetically warns those disobedient ‘gods’ within the ranks of a future judgment because of their rebellion against God and their affiliation with Satan.
Once again, anybody who believes that the Scriptures teach the deluded dogmas of the New Age Thought Movement OR the pagan beliefs of the Eastern religions, philosophies, and mythologies has been completely BRAIN-WASHED!
Beware of ANYBODY who professes to know the ‘real message’ of the Scriptures and then proceeds to conveniently INVENT new definitions for Biblical terminology based on their RIDICULOUS PERSONAL OPINIONS.
This type of childish NONSENSE is the standard operating procedure of all DISOBEDIENT UNBELIEVERS who continuously choose to contend with God’s Words because they believe that they are smarter than God. Unfortunately, Inward Quest is splattered with this type of DISHONEST conduct.
Therefore, let this particular question (‘Do you think that you are a god?’) stand as a terrifying lesson for ANYBODY who chooses to corrupt and pervert God’s Words. The Bible will NEVER allow ANYBODY to usurp its absolute AUTHORITY over the DEFINITIONS of its terminology.
In other words: THE BIBLE WILL ALWAYS DEFINE ITS OWN TERMS!
WARNING: [Romans 1:28][II Thessalonians 2:11,12]
No man will ever make a LIAR out of God.
If YOU choose to corrupt and pervert God’s Words, God will corrupt and pervert YOUR MIND.
Thanks for reading.
EDIT (PART ONE)
Let it be known that this particular question originally consisted of  misinterpreted Biblical verses. After an orgasmic ‘Copy & Paste’ frenzy, another  Biblical verses have been added. In order to preserve the integrity of my original answer, I have once again addressed each new Biblical verse and clearly demonstrated that the Bible does NOT teach that ALL MEN are ‘God’ or possess ‘God-essence’.
For the readers who are not familiar with the history of MANUSCRIPT EVIDENCE, let it be known that God’s Words are found in THE AUTHORIZED KING JAMES 1611 BIBLE. However, for the sake of continuity, I have kept the so-called ‘Bible’ quotations from the corrupt, perverted, modern-day ‘Bible’ version used in this question as the main headings in my analysis below.
Let the BIBLICAL dismantling and destruction of FALSE CLAIMS begin:
(1) Genesis 1:26-27 Then God said, “Let US make man in OUR image, in OUR likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He Created him; male and female He created them.
Since the ‘image of God’ is in THREE parts (The Father, The Word, and The Holy Ghost), Adam was also created in THREE parts (soul, body, and spirit). When Adam was first created, he was created in a state of INNOCENCE untouched by SIN and DEATH. In this original state of INNOCENCE, Adam had the ‘image of God’ and was called a ‘son of God’. Adam was NEVER called the ‘Son of God’ or ‘God’. [Genesis 1:26,27][Genesis 2:7][Luke 3:38][I John 5:7][I Thessalonians 5:23]
Since Eve was directly created from Adam, Eve was also in a state of INNOCENCE and had the ‘image of God’. [Genesis 2:21-25]
Adam was clearly forewarned of the consequences, but he freely chose to disobey God’s Commandment. When Adam acquired the Knowledge of GOOD and EVIL, Adam and Eve LOST their INNOCENCE and LOST the ‘image of God’. Adam’s disobedience was SIN. Because of the SIN of Adam, DEATH entered into the world. Thus, because Adam and Eve were touched by SIN and DEATH, they no longer possessed the ‘image of God’. [Genesis 2:16,17] [Genesis 3:6,7][Romans 5:12,14]
Since the Fall of Adam, ALL men and women are born with the ‘image of Adam’. They are NOT born with the ‘image of God’. The ‘image of God’ is a GLORIFIED IMAGE which is NOT touched by SIN and DEATH. In contrast, the ‘image of Adam’ is a CORRUPT IMAGE which is touched by SIN and DEATH. [Genesis 5:3][Romans 5:12-21][Romans 3:9,10,23][I Corinthians 15:53]
Today, in order to re-acquire the LOST ‘image of God’ and become a ‘son of God’, a man or woman must personally accept the BLOOD-ATONEMENT of Jesus Christ (God in the Flesh) for the forgiveness of SINS in order to become BORN-AGAIN through the Spirit of God. Thus, only BORN-AGAIN BELIEVERS in the Body of Christ have the ‘image of God’ because they are ‘born of God’ and have the victory over SIN and DEATH. All the people in the world who are NOT BORN-AGAIN have the ‘image of Adam’ because they are NOT ‘born of God’ and do NOT have the victory over SIN and DEATH. [John 1:12,13; 3:3, 5-7][Colossians 2:9-15][I Peter 1:18-23][I Corinthians 15:55-57]
(2) Jeremiah 1:5 “Before I formed you in the Womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart. I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.
(3) Psalm 139:13 for you created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother's womb.
(4) Isaiah 49:5 and now the LORD says – He who formed me in the womb to be His servant to bring Jacob back to Him and gather Israel to Himself, for I am honored in the eyes of the LORD and my God has been my strength.
(5) Hosea 1:10 They will be called 'sons of the living God'.
‘Yet the number of the CHILDREN OF ISRAEL shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto THEM, Ye are not my people, there it shall be said unto THEM, Ye are the sons of the living God.’ [Hosea 1:10]
(6) Romans 9:26 They will be called 'sons of the living God'.
(7) Romans 8:19 the creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed.
(8) Psalm 82:6 I said, 'you are gods; you are all sons of the Most High.
(9) 1 John 5:19 We know that we are children of God.
(10) Galatians 4:6 Because you are sons, God sent the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba Father.”
‘Even so WE (the Jews & Gentiles), when WE (the Jews & Gentiles) were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world: But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, To redeem THEM (the Jews) that were under the law, that WE (the Jews & Gentiles) might receive the adoption of sons. And because YE (the Gentiles) are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into YOUR (the Gentiles’) hearts, crying, Abba, Father. Wherefore THOU (a Gentile) art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ. Howbeit then, when YE (the Gentiles) knew not God, YE (the Gentiles) did service unto them which by nature are no gods. But now, after that YE (the Gentiles) have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn YE (the Gentiles) again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto YE (the Gentiles) desire again to be in bondage?’ [Galatians 4:3-9]
These words of the Apostle Paul to the Gentiles in Galatia may be paraphrased as follows:
‘Hey, all you Gentiles in Galatia! You used to be in bondage to the things of the world. Now, Jesus Christ has shown up and allows you (who were strangers to God) to be known of God, separated from the world, and adopted into God’s family through the Spirit of Christ. Thus, if you now say that you are a son and an heir of God through Christ, then why do you AGAIN choose to be in bondage to the things of the world??’
(11) Romans 8:16 The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God's children.
(12) Romans 8:14 Those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.
(13) John 1:12-13 Yet to all who received, to those who believed in His name, He gave them the right to become children of God – children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God. (For God was their Father)
