Is God body, soul, and spirit?

 

God has a body, soul and spirit. The Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost are one, referred to as the Godhead. (KJV-1John 5:7, For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one). The Godhead is also referred to as the Holy Trinity. The Holy Trinity is a Christian doctrine that defines the Godhead as one God composed of  three deities. The definition of the word trinity means a group of  three closely related. Although the phrase “Holy Trinity” is not mentioned in the Bible, it is an accurate description of the Godhead. See illustration:

Godhead 12

God made man in His own image and likeness. (KJV-Genesis 1:26, And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness…).  God made man with a body, soul and spirit. (KJV-1Thessalonians 5:23, And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and [I pray God] your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ).

The Godhead has a body. The Son is the physical body in the Godhead. (KJV-Colossians 2:8-9, Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. 9- For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily). The word Godhead is translated from a Greek word which means God or supreme deity. The word bodily in this scripture is translated from a Greek word which means a physical body. The Son of God is the physical presence of God. The Son of God appeared in the Old Testament in His immortal body on several occasions. He had appeared and ate food with Abraham. (KJV-Genesis 18:1-2, And the LORD appeared unto him in the plains of Mamre: and he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day 2- And he lift up his eyes and looked, and, lo, three men stood by him: and when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself toward the ground) and (Genesis 18:7-8, And Abraham ran unto the herd, and fetcht a calf tender and good, and gave it unto a young man; and he hasted to dress it. 8- And he took butter, and milk, and the calf which he had dressed, and set it before them; and he stood by them under the tree, and they did eat). In the New Testament, the Son of God had manifested in a flesh and blood mortal body, by way of the virgin birth, and shed His blood and died on the cross for the sins of the world. After Calvary, the Son of God changed back into His flesh and bone immortal body when He rose from the dead. (KJV-Luke 24:39, Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have) and (KJV-Romans 6:9, Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him). The Son of God referred to His body as the temple of the Godhead. (KJV-John 2:19-21, Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. 20- Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days? 21- But he spake of the temple of his body) Man’s body is also referred to as a temple. (KJV-1Corinthians 6:19, What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own). The Apostle John referred to the Son of God as the temple of the Godhead. (KJV-Revelation 21:22, And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it). The Father dwells in the Son the same way our soul and spirit dwell in us. (KJV-John 14:10, Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works). The Holy Ghost dwells in the Son. (KJV-Luke 3:22, And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased).

The Godhead has a soul, and God the Father is the soul in the Godhead. (KJV-John 4:23-24, But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. 24- God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth). The word spirit in this scripture is translated from a Greek word which also means a soul. God the Father is the soul in the Godhead. (KJV-Leviticus 26:11-12, And I will set my tabernacle among you: and my soul shall not abhor you. 12- And I will walk among you, and will be your God, and ye shall be my people). The Godhead's soul  is well pleased with the Son. (KJV-Matthew 12:18, Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my spirit upon him, and he shall shew judgment to the Gentiles). In the following scripture it says the Father is well pleased with the Son. (KJV-2Peter 1:17, For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased).  

The Godhead has a spirit. The Holy Ghost is the spirit in the Godhead. (KJV-Acts 5:32, And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him). The Holy Ghost is called the Spirit of the Father. (KJV-Matthew 10:20, For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you). The Holy Ghost is also called the Spirit of Christ. (KJV-Philippians 1:19, For I know that this shall turn to my salvation through your prayer, and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ).
