Who is GOD?

 

The Bible reveals GOD as the only Infinite and Eternal Being, having no beginning and no ending.  He is Creator and Sustainer of all things.  He is the Supreme Personal Intelligence, and Righteous Ruler of His universe.  He is life, and therefore, the only source of life.  Read  John 5:26.

Man is natural and cannot know GOD by wisdom.  “Can you discover the depths of GOD?”  Read Job 11:7 .  GOD is a person and can be known only by revelation.  In the Old Testament He revealed Himself to and through His prophets.  In the New Testament He reveals Himself through His Son Jesus Christ.  Read Heb 1:1-3.

The Existence of GOD          Read Heb 11:5-6

The Personality of GOD          Read 1 Thess 1:9

The Nature of GOD          Read 1 John 4:8

The Grace of GOD          Read Eph 2:8

The Trinity of GOD          Read Matt 3:16-17

 

A Portrait of GOD:  God is

Blessed & Only Sovereign                                   Control & power are God’s alone

King of kings                                                      No king has more power or authority

Lord of lords                         God possesses absolute superiority over all powers, both human and divine  

Immortal                               God alone has inherent immortality; ours comes from Him

Unapproachable light                                          God’s glory is blinding

Unseen (invisible)                  God is so Holy that no one can see him and live

Worthy of Honor                    God is to be honored for who He is and what He has done

Eternal domination (power)    God’s power continues from eternity to eternity; it has no end
