I think we, limited creatures, can not comprehend or determinate with limited words the whole nature of God, we know a basic idea of how is He, One Act, Three Persons but One God. However, His whole nature is a mystery to us. In Heaven, we'll understand Him better.

The Nature of God is a mystery, beyond complete human comprehension. God is unlimited perfection: endless perfect love, unlimited power and knowledge, perfect in all that He is and does. But no one can fully describe God because He is greater than the human mind and greater than human language.
