Who/what is God?

God is not dependent upon anything else in order to exist. He intrinsically possesses the power of being. He is eternal and doesn't need a cause. God is not dependent upon anything or anyone else in order to create existence. God has incredible  power and ability.-2Samuel 7:22 "Wherefore thou art great, O LORD God; for there is none like thee, neither is there any God beside thee, according to all that we have heard with our ears." Psalms 86:8-10 "Among the gods there is none like unto thee, O Lord. Neither are there any works like unto thy works. All nations whom thou hast made shall come and worship before thee, O Lord and shall glorify thy name. For thou art great and doest wondrous things. Thou art God alone." Psalms 89:6-9 "For who in the heaven can be compared unto the LORD? Who among the sons of the mighty can be likened unto the LORD? God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints, and to be had in reverence of all them that are about him. O LORD God of hosts, who is a strong LORD like unto thee? Or to thy faithfulness round about thee? Thou rulest the raging of the sea. When the waves thereof arise, thou stillest them." Isaiah 40:13-18 Who hath directed the Spirit of the LORD, or being his counselor hath taught him? With whom took he counsel, and who instructed him, and taught him in the path of judgment, and taught him knowledge, and showed to him the way of understanding?-(none; God- IS-the first cause of all we have and see)-Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket and are counted as the small dust of the balance. Behold, he taketh up the isles as a very little thing. And Lebanon is not sufficient to burn, nor the beasts thereof sufficient for a burnt offering. All nations before him are as nothing and they are counted to him less than nothing and vanity. To whom then will ye liken God? Or what likeness will ye compare unto him? Isaiah 44:24 "Thus saith the Lord, thy redeemer and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the Lord that maketh all things, that stretcheth forth the heavens alone, that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself." Isaiah 46:5,9,10 "To whom will ye liken me and make me equal and compare me, that we may be like? Remember the former things of old. For I am God and there is none else. I am God and there is none like me. Declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand and I will do all my pleasure." Jeremiah 10:6 "Forasmuch as there is none like unto thee, O LORD. Thou art great, and thy name is great in might." Jeremiah 32:17,27 "Ah Lord GOD! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee?...Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh. Is there any thing too hard for me?"
    Moses had the same question about who God was. God answered him telling him that He (God) was as is defined by His attributes: Self Existent and the Cause of all good (including evil, which also has an ultimate good purpose) -Exodus 3:13,14
    The original word for 'God' in the Old Testament is 'elohim', a plural word and means a family, a group of strong ones, divine ones
    Putting this together with John 17:21-23, we see that God is one family-(Mark 12:29; 1Peter 2:10; 2Corinthians 5:19; Hebrews 12:22), the Father being the 'head', as to which the original word for God in the New Testament refers. God is love -1John 4:7,8,16
    God is spirit (John 4:24) and the Father of spirits -Hebrews 12:9; Galatians 5:5; Numbers 16:22; 27:16. He isn't the father of the things of the flesh-(mentally speaking) -Ecclesiastes 7:29.
    We, once having accepted what God has for us in Christ, are in the spirit realm and now serve in the spirit; that is, our priorities involve motivations and expressions of the spiritual things such as love, forgiveness, kindness, etc.
    Jesus suffered in the flesh, being subject to fleshly lusts (desires) as we all are, yet came to understand, as we should too, that the lasting and permanently beneficial things are the spiritual -1Peter 4:1-4
    Spiritual things are things to do with expressing love
    As a Father, God talks to us -2Corinthians 12:8,9. The more one becomes aware of the presence of God in him, the more he can differentiate between his own thoughts and those from God. That's why study and prayer (talking to God) time alone with God is important. 
    God is Spirit -John 4:24 "God is Spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit-(inside you – spend time alone with God)-and in truth." John 17:17 ".....Thy word is truth."
    What about God's home?
