THE MULTIPLE PERSONS OF THE GOD OF ISRAEL

I've been meditating about the PERSON of God who is presently here with us - compared with the god of Islam who says he doesn't have a son. In other words, he also doesn't have a body to take up on earth. He is just a demon floating around out there, with a rock in Mecca to serve as his body.

I arrived at this line of thinking from my view of the Trinity of God:
God(s) (Elohim) said, "let us create man in our image". We (man) are body, soul and spirit, consequently, that's also what God is constituted of: Body (Yeshua), Soul (Father) and Spirit - the One who is here with us now.
I'm sure God appeared as Yeshua to, for instance Abraham - check what is said about the three men who visited him: he eventually called the One LORD = God.
Interesting to me is that our soul needs input from our spirit to be creative and to control our emotions, and I think it's the same with God the Father. We need to operate in the Spirit to give him input of our feelings, worship, needs, aspirations, etc. A good example of this is the way Moses acted via his anointing with the Spirit to change God's mind, e.g. not to destroy his people.
From there, I arrived at studying the awesome power and scope of the Spirit Yeshua has enabled us to have with us, in us. It's sevenfold, but I can only find 6 of them, perhaps it works the way I set out in the table below.
Point is, our persons need to be in balance. Carnal man is all body, he hardly knows he has a spirit; some people are just thought machines or emotions and their bodies don't mean anything to them. The soul types are just involved with their own thoughts and things they dream up, even diseases they think they have, etc.
Others are spiritually controlled, but by the wrong spirits, consequently they are demon possessed.
No, we need to be all spirit, but from the Spirit of God, to make us normal balanced people, conscious of our bodies and what they need or don't need - like inhaled smoke; with joy in the Lord and creative minds and controlled emotions. Above all, anointing with talent and ability to do what we need to do - like the craftsmen who built the Tabernacle and the Temple.
Isaiah 11: 1 A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a Branch will bear fruit. 2 The Spirit of the LORD will rest on him-- the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of power, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD--
