On the Nature of God

The Bible tells that Jesus was God. In John, chapter
1, verses 1-10 we are told, "… the word was God. … All
things came into being by Him, and apart from Him nothing
came into being … He came to bear witness of the light …
He was in the world, and the world was made through Him,
and the world did not know Him." That is to say, through
the physical body of God (the son, the Angel of the LORD,
Yahweh, the I AM, the Almighty, …) created the "big bang"
by speaking the words of the mind of God (Father) using the
power or nature of God (the Holy Spirit). We also in John
8:56-58 read "Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day …
Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I AM."
The name I AM is the name God told Moses from the
burning bush; it is the name Yahweh, the God of the Old
Testament.
In the book of Ephesians, in chapter 4, verse 4 we are
told God have only one body and one spirit. In verse 6 it is
added there is only one God and Father. God is just a single
being with three component parts, just as we have. However
in Revelation 5:6 we read of the seven spirits of God. In the
book of Zechariah it is the seven eyes of God, the symbol of
eye as the spirit is repeated in the book of Ezekiel. In the
book of Isaiah chapter 11, in verse 2 we are told what these
spirits or eyes of God are, 1) spirit of the LORD, 2) spirit of
wisdom, spirit of understanding, spirit of counsel, spirit of
strength, spirit of knowledge, and spirit of the fear of the
Lord. These are seven facets of the Holy Spirit. But the
important part is that scripture likens them to eyes of God. It
is the Holy Spirit that sees and knows all. It is the spirit of
knowledge, spirit of understanding.
However in the book of Matthew 6:6-9 and Luke
11:2 we are told to address prayer to the Father, not the Holy
