These illustrations are to help you grasp the magnitude of intelligence and power that is conveyed or expressed in the statement made to Moses when he asked,
 
"Who shall I say sent me? 
 
Elohim answered,
 
"I Will Be What I Will To Be."
 
This phrase was wrongly or untimely translated "I Am That I Am" and placed into the text. But this now is a correct understanding, because what is being read records the first time that Yahweh has chosen to reveal His Awesome power and His presence to a man, just one man at this particular time in human history. The first seven (7) versus of Chapter 4 of Exodus validate what I am saying. Then the 10 Plagues are an expansion or enlargement on this revelation of "I will be what I will to be" to the fullest extent for all the people of Israel and Pharaoh and his people to see and experience; thus Yahweh-Elohim tells Moses . . .

By the pattern: [showing how each state reflects a part of the 3 fold Tabernacle Pattern]

YAHWEH or Pure Spirit [Attributes/Eternal Immaculate Substance] = MHP/Most Holy Place

Yahweh-Elohim or The Only Begotten Son [the Image/Word] = HP/Holy Place

Yahshua or Holy Spirit operating as/in different formations invisible and visible in the Universe or Creation = CRA/Court Round About

Yahweh is Pure Spirit, and in this state He is incomprehensible and inscrutable, and He is the eternal substance, limits and bounds of everything.  Here Yahweh in His Pure Spirit state is symbolized as a cloud.  Yahweh in not a cloud!  He merely chose a cloud to to symbolize Himself because a cloud has no particular or descriptive shape or form.  We have drawn this cloud in this manner to show you that everything [including the concept of a Yahweh] in the universe abides within the Pure spirit state of Yahweh.

"Without controversy great is the mystery of Holiness:
Elohim was manifest in the flesh,
justified in the Spirit,
seen of angels,
preached unto the Gentiles,
believed on in the world,
received up into glory."

1 Timothy 3.16
 

Comment:  There is no 3 persons to the so-called Godhead, because that is Yahweh or pure spirit substance in a defined shape and form.  And than He was manifested in a physical body as
the Messiah, and that is just one pure spirit manifesting in two different forms or manifestations (one is a spiritual form and the other is a physical form). That was and is just one Eternal Spirit Substance revealing himself as the Father, Yahweh who is spirit, NOT "A" Spirit. And the image that Yahweh formed for Himself to manifest in He called Elohim [a title]. Remember the "burning bush" episode?  This name (Title) was made known by Yahweh Himself when He first introduced Himself to the man Moses at the burning bush on the backside of Mount Sinai.
 
Yahweh was manifesting to Moses in a vision, a bush in a consuming fire but was not being  burned (like the three Hebrew children in the fiery furnace in Babylon). It was there that YHWH called Himself Elohim. Elohim is a super-incorporeal shape and form that was begotten by Yahweh, and that form is the WORD that appeared to the patriarchs and prophets in visions and revelations. And Elohim is the spirit embodiment that the apostle John speaks of in this writings, and at that time the apostle John knew Elohim by the name Yahshua.

Yahweh is pure spirit, therefore no man has ever seen the Father, He is the substance called
Eternity. And in this description substance is the attributal make-up or nature of Yahweh that has no possibility of further comprehension with the exception of the of primary attributes (elements of the substance) which are revealed in the structure, appointments and function of the Tabernacle Pattern. But the attributes of YHWH are innumerable, and in the bible they are referred to as spirits, hosts, armies, angels or collectively "ministering spirits." Elohim is the image that embodies the nature of Yahweh [attributes] in an organized way that it is possible to know and understand, and that is what may be known of Yahweh.
 
As an analogy it would be reasonable to say that all things, no matter what it or they may be, they all abide within what appears to be the vacant atmosphere of our universe.  By "vacant atmosphere" I am implying the space and that vacuum like portion of existence.  I have expressed it this way because there is no such possibility as being outside of pure spirit because all of what exists is within pure spirit. Pure spirit as an Eternal Environment is also the source and substance, the limits and bounds, and ruler of all that exists--there is nothing else.
 
Words, their elements (symbols and sounds) and dialog structures (their arrangements) are
also creatures, and as such they by themselves are not able to adequately embody or convey the full measure of what might be known of Yahweh.  Therefore Yahweh-Elohim had to provided this universe physically (we are physical beings) as the most adequate visual reflection or image [type and shadow expressions] to help us learn, know and understand what may be known of Yahweh/Pure Spirit through the form Elohim. But it is Elohim manifesting as Yahshua that is the door and he provides the key. This is a very great esoteric mystery and it can only be entered into by the way Yahweh has provided for those who will acknowledge Elohim, by the name Yahshua in its physical manifestation and be obedient to his instruction and guidance. 
 
Remember as the apostle Saul said, this is a very great mystery. It is Yahweh Who ordained
the name "Yahshua" to His only begotten son, Elohim.


Romans 1:18-21 (AKJV)
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and
unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; because that which may
be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible
things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the
things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without
excuse: because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were
thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

1 Timothy 3:16 (AKJV)
And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the
flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in
the world, received up into glory.

 Revelation 3:14Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen,
the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God. . . The Lord possessed
me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old. (Proverbs 8:22)--A Mystery.


[for a comparison reading] The "Godhead"
Source:  http://www.bibletruths.net/great%20truths/gt01.htm


     The word "Godhead" occurs three times in the scriptures (Acts 17: 29, Rom. 1: 20,

Col. 2: 9, KJV). There are two different Greek words translated Godhead in these

occurrences, theiotes and theotes. Thayer says Godhead (theiotes) means, "divinity,

divine nature" (Thayer's Greek-English Lexicon, pg. 285). Vine distinguishes between

these two words:
 
"Theiotes, the attributes of God, His Divine nature and properties;

theotes indicates the Divine essence of Godhood, the personality of God"
 
(W. E. Vine, Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words).
 
 
The Godhead, then, is divinity, divine nature, and the essence of God, simply stated. It is
 
essential that we also understand the term inspired writers used to designate the Creator -
 
"God." "God" is from the Greek theios which means "divine, deity" (Thayer, pg. 285).

     The Godhead consists of three entities. The term God (divine) is applied to the Father

(Rom. 1: 7), the Son (Heb. 1: 8), and the Holy Spirit (Acts 5: 3, 4). While three entities

comprise the Godhead (state of being God), they are one in nature, purpose, and

thinking (cf. Jn. 14: 8-11). The scriptures never refer to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

(Godhead) as gods. When "gods" is used, it refers to idols or pagan pantheons (Ex. 12:

12). Moreover, it is significant that the Hebrew adjective of singularity (one) is used with

the plural noun God (Elohim). "Hear, O Israel: the Lord our God is one Lord" (Deut. 6:

4). Notwithstanding, the scriptures clearly present three separate and distinct entities or

personalities: 2 Cor. 13: 14, Eph. 4: 4-6, Matt. 3: 13-17.

     The scriptures reveal no degrees of deity. Hence, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are

co-existent, co-eternal, and co-equal. A careful study of the nature of the Father, Son,

and Holy Spirit reveals a nature, properties, and characteristics which can only be found

concerning God (theios). While there are circumstantial variations (i.e. the incarnation),

such a study reveals no variations in the essential nature of the Father, Son, and the

Holy Spirit. If there had been any varying degrees and gradations of deity (such is really

impossible, God is either God or not God, Isa. 46: 5-10), the incarnation would have

been the opportunity. However, Jesus, in the flesh, remained God, modernism and some

of my brethren to the contrary notwithstanding. Jesus did not "leave his essential nature

in heaven (deity, dm) when he came to earth" (2 Cor. 8: 9). He simply disrobed himself

of all the grandeur of deity which he enjoyed in heaven (Phili. 2: 6-10).

     The Father/Son relationship. The Father/Son presentation of God particularly and

peculiarly pertains to the incarnation (becoming flesh) of the Logos (Word, Jesus, Jn. 1:

1-11). When the Word became flesh, he "assumed" the posture of Son (Jn. 3: 16, he was

conceived of the Holy Spirit and Mary, Matt. 1: 20). In this role, he was acquiescent to

the Father (cf. 14: 28). Jesus (the Word) existed at the beginning and did the actual

creating of all things which are created (Col. 1: 16). Jesus said, "…Before Abraham was, I

am" (Jn. 8: 58). The verb tense of "I am" indicates His deity or eternality. Since Jesus

and the Father necessarily shared divine commonalties, he could say "…he that hath seen

me hath seen the Father" (Jn. 14: 9).

     The Holy Spirit was also present and active at the time of creation (Gen. 1: 2). The

role of the Spirit at different times seems to have been that of creating order and system

(Gen. 1: 1, 2, Jn. 14-16). It is tragic that so many attribute chaos to the Holy Spirit in

their religious teachings and practices (cp. I Cor. 14: 33-40). The Spirit also shares the

common and essential nature and traits of deity. The Spirit is presented as on the same

level of Jesus ("another," allos, "another of the same sort," Jn. 14: 16).

     The nature of God (Godhead). God is all knowing (Acts 2: 23), self-existent (Jn. 5:

26), immutable (Jas. 1: 17), and all-powerful (Matt. 19: 26). God possesses absolute

holiness (I Pet. 1: 15), creative power (Rom. 11: 36), and eternality (Rom. 1: 20). Not

only does God love, but the essential nature of God is love (I Jn. 4: 8).

     The nature of God is seen in the "God is…" expressions found in the scriptures. God is

love (I Jn. 4: 8), God is faithful (I Cor. 10: 13), God is holy (Ps. 99:9), God is light (I Jn.

1: 5), God is merciful (2 Chroni. 30: 9), and God is jealous (Deut. 6: 15).

     God is also revealed in his names. He is Jehovah-nissi ("Jehovah is my banner," Ex.

17: 15, suggestive of triumph), Jehovah-shalom ("the Lord is peace," Judges 6: 24),

Jehovah-shamah ("Jehovah is present," Ezek. 48: 35), Jehovah-tisidkenu ("Jehovah is

righteous," Jere. 23: 6), and Jehovah-Jireh ("Jehovah will provide," Gen. 22: 14).

     The scriptures collectively present God as strict and firm (Rom. 11: 22), as good

(Ibid.), and perfect (Matt. 5: 48). God hates sin, ignorance, and confusion (Isa. 59: 1, 2,

Acts 17: 30, 31, I Cor. 14: 33, 40). God is above man (Isa. 55: 8, 9). There is none like

God: "Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else, I am

God, and there is none like me" (Isa. 46: 9, see vss. 5-10).

     The Holy Spirit used prepositions in an apparent attempt to reveal God to man. In

providence God is around his people (Ps. 125: 1, 2), in persecution he is for the saved

(Rom. 8: 31), in preservation God is beneath his people (Deut. 33: 26, 27), and in

united efforts to serve him, he is among those so united (Matt. 18: 20).

     God is a jealous God. As noted under the nature of God, God is jealous. In other

words. God does not compete or take second place to any - He demands singularity and

priority (see Deut. 6: 14, 15). Jesus said, "…Ye cannot serve God and mammon" (Matt. 6:

24). Jesus also taught, "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all

thy soul, and with all thy mind" (Matt. 22: 37).

     In view of the exalted magnificence of the God of heaven, it is a great privilege to

learn of him (Bible) and serve Him. Paul preached the following of God in his famous

sermon in Athens, Greece: "…and set the bounds of their habitation; that they should

seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from

every one of us" (Acts 17: 26, 27).
