On the Nature of God

What in nature was created which tells us of Gods
Divine nature? Back in the very beginning of the Bible the
question is answered. In the book of Genesis, in chapter 1
and verse 26, we are told, "Then God said, 'Let us make man
in our own image, according to our likeness…'." We are the
part of creation, which is like God. What is our nature as
created by God? In the book of Genesis, chapter 2, verse 7
we are further told, "The LORD God formed man of the
dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the
breath of life, and man became a living soul." This nature of
design is echoed in many other places, for example in 1
Thessalonians chapter 5, verse 23 we find, "sanctify you
entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved
complete…" God made a body out of the matter of the earth
or the elements of the physical 4 dimensions of time and
space, placed into it a spirit (the Hebrew word breath is the
word for spirit) and man became a living soul. Not has a
soul, but is a living soul.
What is the meaning of these words in modern
language? Spirit is nature or personality. Soul is mind. We
created in modern years a device in our image, not likeness
yet. It is the computer. The hardware is body, made of the
elements of the earth. In this hardware we place software,
information called operating system and programs. The
execution of this code in the hardware makes our computer
seem alive; that is to say it does things. That is its soul, so to
speak.
God is triune just like us. He is a Father, a Son and a
Holy Spirit. The son is the flesh or the body of physical
matter, which walked among us. This body contained God's
nature, i.e. Holy Spirit. And as a result of this interaction a
door is open to the Being we pray to, the Father, the mind or
thinking of God.
