How do we know Jesus and Jehovah God arent the same being?

Colossians 1:15,16, Let's us know He(Jesus) Is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. Jesus helped in the creation of all other things. So if Jesus is the firstborn of all creation, directly created by God meaning, God was already here, then Jesus came, so they cannot be the same being.

We don't. The New Testament makes three foundational claims about Jesus Christ:
1. He is Jehovah incarnate, but not the God he worships and prays to.
2. He is the creation of God.
3. He is the begotten son of God.

“16 “For God loved the world so much that he gave his only-begotten Son, so that everyone exercising faith in him might not be destroyed but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)
“18 May people know that you, whose name is Jehovah, You alone are the Most High over all the earth.” (Psalm 83:18)
“. . .you are to name him Jesus. 32 This one will be great and will be called Son of the Most High, and Jehovah God will give him the throne of David his father, 33 and he will rule as King over the house of Jacob forever, and there will be no end to his Kingdom.”” (Luke 1:31-33)

At Jesus’ baptism a voice from heaven proclaims: “This is my Son, the beloved, whom I have approved.” Matthew 3:17
Whose voice is that? It cannot be Jesus’ own voice; he is right there with John.
That voice is God’s. Clearly, Jesus is God’s Son. He is not God himself.

At John 17:3, Jesus says the only God is his Father.
He always attributed his Father as the one that his followers should worship as our God.
He never called himself God. He never said anything about three divine persons making up one God. He said his God, Jehovah, is it.

There are the same being of course. There is only one God.

Jesus uses the term ego eimi to refer to himself a lot. This is a Septuagint (Greek Old Testament) term used for YHWH (Jehovah) . Jesus also accepts worship (something never done by any angel nor messenger).
Even the beginning of John 1 states that the Word was with God and God was the Word. It continues to say that the Word became Flesh. All this is telling that Jesus (The Word) is both With God and Is God.

God created Jesus, a man, a prophet.. nowhere in the bible does Jesus pray to himself or ask others to pray to him.. He prayes for Gods help in the Garden of Gethsemane. not to help himself. if he is God, why does he need help.. . see...

There is only one Being of God.
This one Being of God is complex, not simple, so that God subsists in the three uncreated, co-equal 'persons' of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. But one Being. This is the God that Christians adore. This is the God Jesus came to Earth as a human for - to show us the way back to God. This Jesus is the exact representation of God, in the flesh. We learn about God through putting all our faith in Him, the uncreated Son. The uncreated Holy Spirit enables us to understand such things, as Jesus promised He would (after Jesus returned to the Godhead in Heaven).
If the Son was a different Being to the Father and the Holy Spirit, then you would have polytheism. Three gods. The Bible utterly condemns polytheism, stating clearly that we worship the one Being of God alone. This is the most complex theological matter we can think about because the Almighty is complex, not simple. If we could describe the Almighty and completely understand who He is, then He would no longer be the true God - he would be a figment of our own thinking.
As there is only one Almighty God, the easiest way to break down the idea is to go to the scriptures where it states that the Father is a Mighty One (Isa. 10:21), the Son is a Mighty One (Isa 9:6) and the Holy Spirit Paraclete is a Mighty One (Jn 3:5-11 with Acts 5:4). Three 'Mightys' make one ALmighty!
