I was having one of those days where someone asks me to explain the Holy Trinity. I have heard so many things about one God that is three divine beings. And then there was the question of who was more powerful. And the question of which part of the Godhead is in charge. There were so many questions and so many different answers. So I asked God to explain to me about Him and how Jesus and the Holy Spirit fit in to the Godhead.
This was the answer that I got from God:

If you have before you one large cotton ball consider this… The Godhead, Trinity, Three in One etc is one entity. Man was made in God’s likeness. Therefore each person either man or woman is put together in three parts, spirit, flesh and mind. The mind controls the body’s movements and our spirit directs us into the paths we should go and utilizes wisdom to help us on the way.
God created the world and man. He walked with man in the garden. God is able to manifest himself any way he wishes… He makes a hand appear on a wall, a donkey speaks out; a bush burns brightly but is not consumed, a cloud and or a pillar of fire. God led his people by his spirit.
Take a piece of the cotton ball and place it on the left. Now it is still the same cotton ball. But that piece was made to be the Spirit and appeared on earth before Jesus came. God felt a need to put into place a way to redeem his people and bring them to him. Jesus was brought into the picture.
Take another piece of the main cotton ball and place it on the right of the first one. We now have three distinct pieces of cotton ball that are from the same piece. God manifested his divine being into three parts. Once Jesus came and returned to the Father the Holy Spirit returned to us and will be with us until Jesus’ return.

We have three beings that make us up. We may not be able to separate them as God does but we are able to use each one individually. When our spirit, body or mind has input into our being it affects every part of us. Thus we are one being Think about it!
So the best way that I can explain the Holy Trinity and/or the Godhead is that God is like one large cotton ball and can take any part of himself at anytime and move it into place as He sees fit and can put it back into Himself as He desires. \
I hope that this way of understanding may have been some help to you. I am not one to argue about semantics and or doctrine and I always ask God to help me understand things in a way that will make it real to me…
We are made in Gods image three parts ,But Only one being ,in part can be doing three different things! our three parts are imperfect . till salvation!
then our inward man [spirit with its mind ] are perfected . meaning without Sin! We still dwell a short time in imperfect bodies with its imperfect flesh mind!
The Only difference between the Saved and Unsaved is our spirit man!
2Co 4:16 For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.

Rom 7:22 For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:

Inward man
new man
new creature
inner man
hidden man
new spirit
are All our spirit man , after Salvation!
1Co 14:32 And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets.

Meaning ? Our spirit man is subject at least to some degree to our flesh minds thinking! That is why it so important to read the Bible and accept it as TRUTH!
How much we walk and live though our Spirit ? Is how we much we will reveal the mind of Jesus Christ!

1Co 2:16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.
Gal 4:19 My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you,

Eph 4:13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:

1Jn 4:17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.

Jesus is the example and pattern for each of Gods Holy Children.Our New spirit man !
Its like an egg...three parts that make up a whole...you can't have an egg without all three parts...whites, shell and yolk without all three parts you don't have a whole egg. Likewise with Father, Son, and Holy Spirit you can't have one without another all three parts make up the whole...you have God, then Jesus that part of God that came to earth in the flesh and then you have the Holy Spirit that which was given to us as a converter, teacher and helper. Together all three of these things make up a whole. As the song says " God in three persons blessed trinity" ...can't have God without all three to create the whole that He is.
