11. God is faithful

 

What God promised has been fulfilled, it is being fulfilled before our eyes, and it will be fulfilled in the future as well.

 

,, 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?”

                                                                                                      Numbers. 23:19

  "And so know that the Lord God is your God, a faithful God, who keeps his covenant and his mercy to a thousand generations to those who love him and keep his commandments."                                                                                                     

 

,, And hath raised up an horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David; As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been since the world began: That we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us; To perform the mercy [promised] to our fathers, and to remember his holy covenant; The oath which he sware to our father Abraham,”

                                                                                                     Luke 1: 69-73

 

 ,, God [is] faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.”

                                                                                                    1 Cor. 1: 9

,, There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God [is] faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear [it].”

                                                                                                   1 Cor. 10:13

                              ,, Faithful [is] he that calleth you, who also will do [it].”

                                                                                                   1 Sol. 5:24

 

12. God is supreme or supreme

God is omniscient, does what is best and can never err because He is the Most High or the Most High

 

,, And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the Lord before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy.”

                                                                                                 Exodus 33:19

 ,, But our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased.”

                                                                                                 Ps. 115: 3

 

 Whatsoever the Lord pleased, that did he in heaven, and in earth, in the seas, and all deep places.”

                                                                                                 Ps. 135: 6

 

,, In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight.”

                                                                                                Lk. 10:21

,, Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; [even] in him: In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:”

,, For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of [his] good pleasure.”

                                                                                                Phil. 2:13

 

 

13. God is zealous - a jealous God

 

,, Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness [of any thing] that [is] in heaven above, or that [is] in the earth beneath, or that [is] in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God [am] a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth [generation] of them that hate me;”

                                                                                               Exodus 20: 3-5

 ,, For thou shalt worship no other god: for the Lord, whose name [is] Jealous, [is] a jealous God:”

Thou shalt not make thee [any] graven image, [or] any likeness [of any thing] that [is] in heaven above, or that [is] in the earth beneath, or that [is] in the waters beneath the earth:Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God [am] a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth [generation] of them that hate me,”

 

                                                                                             Deut. 5: 7-9

,, (For the Lord thy God [is] a jealous God among you) lest the anger of the Lord thy God be kindled against thee, and destroy thee from off the face of the earth.”

                                                                                               Deut. 6:15

 

,, And Joshua said unto the people, Ye cannot serve the Lord: for he [is] an holy God; he [is] a jealous God; he will not forgive your transgressions nor your sins.”

                                                                                             Joshua 24:19

14. God is full of majesty

 

 

"Israel! No ,, [There is] none like unto the God of Jeshurun, [who] rideth upon the heaven in thy help, and in his excellency on the sky.”

                                                                                           Deut 33:26

And I saw as the colour of amber, as the appearance of fire round about within it, from the appearance of his loins even upward, and from the appearance of his loins even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and it had brightness round about. As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so [was] the appearance of the brightness round about. This [was] the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. And when I saw [it], I fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spake.“

                                                                                          John 1: 5

,, Bless the Lord, O my soul. O Lord my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty. Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain:”

                                                                                          Ps.104: 1-2

18. God is immortal

                                                                                         Ps.102: 26-27

                                                                                        Exodus 3: 2

                                                                                        Ezekiel 1:27

 

20. God is a just judge

 

We have mentioned many attributes of God, but the completeness of everything is when we mention that in addition to everything, God is also a righteous judge. from a trait that many ignore thinking that God is only love or mercy but in the Bible we find very serious warnings that tell us that God is a righteous judge and will judge every sin that is not covered by the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ and that is acknowledged and forgiven. that is why God gives us so much grace, giving us a little more time to be educated and turn to the right path, and that is the Lord Jesus Christ.

,, Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. "

                                                                                      John 14: 6

And because we have a way, God gives us a little more time to repent because he does not like death and does not want anyone to die, and he warns us:

 

,, The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”

                                                                                      2 Pet.3: 9

 

And if someone persistently refuses mercy and grace, then God will be his just judge

 

,, That be far from thee to do after this manner, to slay the righteous with the wicked: and that the righteous should be as the wicked, that be far from thee: Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?”

                                                                                      Gen. 18:25

,, If one man sin against another, the judge shall judge him: but if a man sin against the Lord, who shall intreat for him? Notwithstanding they hearkened not unto the voice of their father, because the Lord would slay them.”

                                                                                      1 Sam.2: 25

,, God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day.“

                                                                                       Ps.7: 11

,, So that a man shall say, Verily there is a reward for the righteous: verily he is a God that judgeth in the earth.”

                                                                                       Ps.58: 11

,, For the Lord [is] our judge, the Lord [is] our lawgiver, the Lord [is] our king; he will save us.”

                                                                                       Isa.33: 22

,, Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.”

                                                                                      2 Tim.4: 8

,, There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?”

                                                                                      James 4:12

21. God is perfect

Based on all the characteristics of God studied so far, we can only conclude that God is absolutely perfect, and this is confirmed by the verses from the Gospel. Also, everyone should strive for the goal that the perfect God recommended to us.

,, Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.”

 

                                                                                       Matthew 5:48
