"God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?" (Numb. 23.19).
"And also the Strength of Israel will not lie nor repent: for he is not a man, that he should repent" (1 Sam. 15.29).
God is not a man but He can come in the likeness of flesh in Jesus, 2nd Person of the Trinity, or in other instances such as the three angels as men before Abraham - the Trinity of God.
While the Father remained in heaven, the 2nd Person entered His creation. But with Abraham, the Father, Son and Spirit came in human likeness.
God is complex in His unity. He has diversity in His unity. Whereas other claims have a god without this complexity and diversity. Still others make their god among many gods, so they have diversity but no unity, nor complexity in the unity of one God alone from everlasting.
A complex God always trumps a simple god or a god who has human form, that is, made in man's image such as the god of mormonism.
