Psalms 110:1 (KJV) Essential for Satisfaction

Psalms 110:1 (KJV)
A Psalm of David. The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.
Jesus made it clear that, though the word “Lord” is used twice in this verse, the intent of this passage is that God is speaking to God. God the Father spoke to God the Son giving Him both a place and a promise. The passage is also clear that this conversation took place prior to the incarnation of Christ (even prior the days of David). The multi-personal nature of the Godhead is an essential quality of God and not merely a manifest appearance strictly for the benefit of mankind.
So many aspects of God could be seen as merely anthropomorphic expressions meant not to actually describe God but to describe something about Him in a manner that a finite being is able to understand. None of us believe that God has wings, but the Bible speaks of Him hiding us under the shadow of His wings.[1] This is not so of the Father, Son and the Holy Ghost. Our One True God has eternally and essentially existed as three Persons before time and the foundations of the World. God spoke to Himself as He spoke the world into existence.
God’s fellowship with man is therefore not essential to His satisfaction, but to ours. God created man specifically to fellowship with Him not because He needed it but so we can enjoy it. God, who is perfect to the extent that He is perfectly fulfilled in Himself, graciously created man to partake in that fulfillment.
[1] Matthew 23:37 (KJV)
O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!
