Scripture declares we are made in the image of God. So we can see his nature when we look at how we are created.

A man or woman has many sides, and you see those sides revealed depending on your relationship with that person. As your relationship changes or grows, you begin to see understand and know that person better.

Deut. 6:4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:

Rev. 1:8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

Is. 44:6 Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.

Our nature revealed in our relationships:

Everyone has both a mother and a father, you may have sisters and/or brothers, you may either be an , employee, or homemaker. You probably also have friends, extended family, and other relationships. 

A family has relationships that are not duplicated in casual friendships. The relationship between husband and wife is unique, and no other relationship equals that type of commitment. You don’t have the same relationship with your wife that you have with your coworkers or your neighbours. You first date a member of the opposite sex, then you become engaged, finally, you make a life long commitment to marriage. 

God’s nature revealed

God created the earth, so he has a father relationship with all mankind. He robed Himself in flesh and came to the earth as our saviour or lover. When we accept his love, he enters into a covenant relationship with us and His Spirit enters into us as an earnest of our future marriage when he carries us into heaven.We see all the sides of God as we draw nearer to Him for salvation. He reveals more of Himself to us a sour relationship grows. He did not come to earth to reveal Himself as a committee of persons, each having
separate, individual roles and responsibilities, but as one Spirit, drawing men into a closer relationship with the one true God, revealed in Jesus Christ.

God As Man:

Jesus, the Son, was “the great God” come as a man. He did not reveal a tri-personal, shared Godhead, or multiplicity of persons. In fact, He never used the concept of multiple persons. As a perfect man, Jesus was the visible, exact expression of God’s person – the supreme reaffirmation of the oneness of God.

Mark 12:29 And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:

Heb. 1:3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;

Isaiah 9:6 Calls Jesus “…The mighty God” and “The everlasting Father…”. Some want to describe Him as a separate person, different from the father or the Holy Spirit. John 4:24 declares “…God is a Spirit…”, so there is only one spirit of God described in scripture. God is never described as three persons.
