God is the only Omnipotent Spirit, who has three Souls within. The Persons in God are "the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost." In the Old Testament, they were "the Most High, the Word, and the Spirit of God." Also, the Bible refers; "the Holy Spirit", "the Holy Ghost", and "the Omnipotent Spirit"; all these three, as "the Spirit of God," since they all are of God.
Nobody can see God and live. God existed even before the eternal beginning, and he will exist beyond eternal future. God has his Word from eternal beginning. The only way to know about God, is to refer his Word. His Word is the Scriptures that God has inspired for our information. God has given it to us in the form of the Bible.
The Bible describes God as three persons knitted in one Spirit as one God. These God persons have different names, although they are jointly and individually called God. In the Old Testament, the three persons were known as Most High God, the Word and Spirit of God. In the New Testament, they are called God the Father, God the Son or Lord Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost. They are knitted as one in one Spirit. That is, three Souls are in one Spirit with all power, as One God. Every Christian has an idea that God is 'three but one'. But we do not know the specifics. Let me try to give an example to explain the phenomenon. There are three important systems joined together in our body as one. 1. Brain and Nerves. Brain gives commands, through nerves, to tell muscles what to do. In the same way, God the Father tells God the Son what to do. 2. Heart and Blood. Heart pumps to supply the required blood to do the work. In the same way, God the Holy Ghost gives necessary power, as God the Son does the work. 3. Muscles and Bones (Body). Body does every work. In the same way, the Son, Jesus Christ does the work by the instruction of the Father and by the power supply of the Holy Ghost. As our brain, heart, and muscles are united as one body, the three souls, or persons, are united in One Omnipotent Spirit, which is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent, and he is God. One thing you could have noticed is that God the Father is the head or the brain of the other two. "1 Corinthians 11:3 says the head of Christ is God." But we see that Jesus Christ is doing all things, including the creation and salvation of his people. "Ephesians 3:9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: Matthew 1:21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins." Yet, all are by God. God is Three in One.
Three Spirits are referred as "the Spirit of God" in the Bible. They are, (1) The only one Spirit, who is God and who has Omni-Powers (omnipotence, omnipresence, and omniscience). (2) The Holy Ghost, who is one of the three Persons (Soul) of God. And (3) The Holy Spirit, which God gave men as a gift, which is also called as the spirit of man. Even bible scholars say that the Holy Ghost is the holy spirit, out of their ignorance in the Bible. The Bible refers to the holy spirit as a gift given to men by God, and so the holy spirit cannot be God.
