God in Himself

Can someone clearly define “knowing God as He is in Himself”? I would postulate that you cannot know God as He is in Himself in the sense that we do not have the ability to comprehend God’s thoughts about Himself (perfect and exhaustive knowledge). But for all intents and purposes, we can know God as He is in Himself in the sense that the Spirit relates to us the “Deep Things of God” in revealing Christ in His Glory, which allows us to know the Father because, if we have seen Him, then we have seen the Father. That sort of Trinitarian Knowledge I am fine with. But the Enlightenment style of objective knowledge of God as He is in Himself is absurd and prideful if you ask me…
