Introduction

Who is God? What is He like?

God is the self-existent One, having no need of being created, since He has existed forever and is the cause of all things, including the dimension of time, to which He is not subject. Likewise, God is not subject to the physical creation, but is spiritual in nature, residing in the spiritual dimensions of heaven.

God’s power over the physical creation is absolute, such that He can manipulate matter, energy, space, and time at will. For this reason, God is said to be all powerful, able to accomplish any possible task He wills to do.

Along with being all powerful, God is also all knowing—having knowledge of all things that are possible to be known, including the entire history of the universe, past, present, and future. Because God is all powerful (omnipotent) and all knowing (omniscient), He is also able to be present at all places at all times (omnipresent).


Is there a God? If so, what is he like? Does he care about us?

The answers which we give to these questions will determine our philosophy of life. No man can pass over them as if they were of no importance. There Is A God

The grace of God is the most beautiful and powerful thing we will ever encounter, but it is also the most difficult concept for us to wrap our minds around. Grace pushes back against our understanding of what is fair and what people deserve. But the message of grace is one that the entire world needs to hear. The Amazing Grace Of God

We know that there is a God because we can see evidence of his existence everywhere about us in nature. But had God not chosen to reveal himself to man, there would be no way of determining what he is like. The Bible, however, portrays the characteristics of the supreme being and in this study, we shall study several. The Great I Am

While God as known to the patriarchs as ‘God Almighty’ and to the Jews as ‘Yahweh’, we know him primarily as ‘Our Father.’

Of course, he is still as much ‘God Almighty’ and ‘Yahweh’ as he ever was, but the expression ‘Father’ tells us that he is a moral God. God Our Father

To most Christians, asking if God has a physical body seems like a really strange question. However there are those in the religious arena who sincerely believe that God has indeed got a physical body. They get this idea from several passages within the Scriptures that appear to teach that God has a body. Does God Have A Physical Body?

Justice may be either remunerative or punitive. In the first case God rewards our obedience.

In the second case he inflicts punishment for our sin and disobedience. But regardless of the nature of his dealings with us, what he does is always right. The Justice of God

Now here’s a subject that a lot of preachers stay clear of and a lot of Christians don’t want to even think about. But whatever our views are concerning the subject, we can’t escape the fact that it’s mentioned throughout the Bible.

It all has to do with evil and sin and God’s reaction towards it. The Wrath Of God

If you look up the word ‘jealous’ in a concordance you will also come across the word ‘jealousy’, and you will be led to that striking verse which states, ‘Yahweh, whose name is Jealousy, is a jealous God’. Exodus 34:14. The problem arises because these two words today don’t mean what they meant in Old Testament times; and sustain a meaning which is different, even, from 16ll, when the Authorized Version was produced. A Jealous God

The destruction of the Canaanites, in the time of Joshua and the entrance into the Promised Land, and the slaughter of the Amalekites in the days of King Saul, are two events with which many Christians feel uncomfortable, to put it mildly! And the question arises, how do we reconcile them with what we, as Christians, know about the God? How do we reconcile the view of God, which appears to be projected by such events, with the claim that God is a ‘loving God’? Did God Deal With The Canaanites And The Amalekites Too Harshly?

Did you ever wonder whether God has a purpose in dealing with man?

Reason tells us that He does, although reason itself does not reveal what this purpose is. We know that there is order in the natural world. This is seen in the perfect balance that exists in nature, in the exact movement of the celestial bodies, and in the marvellous reproductive systems in the plant and animal kingdoms. The Eternal Purpose Of God

Nelson’s Illustrated Bible Dictionary describes God’s sovereignty as a ‘theological term, which refers to the unlimited power of God, who has sovereign control over the affairs of nature and history’. The Sovereignty Of God

 

Some people believe that the salvation of the Gentiles was only made possible by the Jewish rejection of the Christ. In other words, they imply that, if the Jews had recognised and received Jesus as their Messiah, there might have been no salvation for the Gentiles. Was Saving The Gentiles An Afterthought By God!

DAILY BIBLE VERSE

"We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all."

Isaiah 53:6
