God Is

God is.  “Some say the greatest question in life is: Does God exist? I say the greatest question is: Do I know the God who does exist? Do I know about Him, and do I know Him personally?” Wrote Dr. David Jeremiah on Fox News Saturday 21, 2018.

What Does the Bible Say
God Is?

The Bible says that fools say that there is no God. (Psalm 14:1; 53:1) and Romans 1:18-32 says that ignoring that obvious truth leads to total corruption, and further, Romans 2 says, leads to judgement.

It is interesting to note, as Dr. Jeremiah points out, that the Bible does not begin God’s message by trying to prove that He exists, but rather that starting from a dark watery blob, God created all that is and made a beautiful home for man; after He made it all and as a special creation,  He made man and then woman.

There is no room for the notion that He used an intermediate ape-form to make man. He made a highly intelligent man who was able to name every beast of the field. Then God gifted man with a beautiful woman to help him. Again, woman was made on the spot as stated in His narrative. In fact, so beautiful, Adam was moved to claim her as his own special companion.

The Revelation of Who God Is

The Bible is the Revelation of God. All of it – every word of it. We cannot choose to believe what seems reasonable to us and not the rest. Who are we to presume such. The mind of God is infinity. He says He made man as a special creation. We can accept this or reject it. By then, why not reject everything else. Including, of course, that He sent His Son to redeem us from our sin.

Let’s consider miracles. Jesus made Good wine (aged wine), in a split second – from plain water. He raised the dead stinking body of Lazarus by a verbal command. That was immediate healing of rotten flesh.

Thinking about the greatness of God, His mind, His ways, Paul exclaims: (Romans 11:33-36 -ESV)
33  Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!

34  “For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been his counselor?”

35  “Or who has given a gift to him that he might be repaid?”

36  For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.
