SEEKER - "What is God like?"

JESUS - "God is Spirit. And those who worship Him must do so in spirit & truth."

THE SPIRIT OF GOD

Let's admit:

GOD IS OVER OUR HEADS!

1.) Self-existent (Exod. 13-14) "I Am That I Am"
2.) Eternal (Psalm 90:2)
3.) Self-sufficient (Psalm 50: 10-12)
4.) Limitless, Infinite (Jeremiah 23:24, Psalm 139: 7-12)
5.) Omnipotent (Rev 19:6)
(Over nature - Gen 1:4,7,10) (Over man - Dan 4:30-32) (Over angels - Psalm 103:20)
(Over satan - Job 1:10,12, 2:6) (Over death - Heb 2:14-15)
6.) Incomprehensible (Job 11: 7-9)
(No measurable reference - Rom 11:33) (beyond accusation - Deut 32:4)
(Revealed through Christ - John 1:18, 3: 12-13)
7.) Omniscient (Proverbs 15:3)
(Overview - Heb 4:13, Psalm 104:24) (Specifics - Matt 10:30, Psalm 147:4)
8.) Sovereign (Psalm 135:6, Isaiah 46: 9-11) and yet still . . .
9.) Honorable (Rev 3:20, Psalm 32:9, Psalm 18: 25-26)
and so He deals with us one by one . . .
