God is not dependent upon anything
else in order to exist. He intrinsically
possesses the power of being. He is eternal and doesn't need a cause. God
is not dependent upon anything or anyone else in
order to create existence. God has incredible power and ability.-2Samuel
7:22 "Wherefore thou art great, O LORD God; for there is none like
thee, neither is there any God beside thee, according to all that we have
heard with our ears." Psalms
86:8-10 "Among the gods there is none like unto thee, O Lord. Neither
are there any works like unto thy works. All nations whom thou hast made
shall come and worship before thee, O Lord and shall glorify thy name.
For thou art great and doest wondrous things. Thou art God alone." Psalms
89:6-9 "For who in the heaven can be compared unto the LORD? Who among
the sons of the mighty can be likened unto the LORD? God is greatly to
be feared in the assembly of the saints, and to be had in reverence of
all them that are about him. O LORD God of hosts, who is a strong LORD
like unto thee? Or to thy faithfulness round about thee? Thou rulest the
raging of the sea. When the waves thereof arise, thou stillest them." Isaiah
40:13-18 Who hath directed the Spirit of the LORD, or being his counselor
hath taught him? With whom took he counsel, and who instructed him, and
taught him in the path of judgment, and taught him knowledge, and showed
to him the way of understanding?-(none;
cause of all we have and see)-Behold,
the nations are as a drop of a bucket and are counted as the small dust
of the balance. Behold, he taketh up the isles as a very little thing.
And Lebanon is not sufficient to burn, nor the beasts thereof sufficient
for a burnt offering. All nations before him are as nothing and they are
counted to him less than nothing and vanity. To whom then will ye liken
God? Or what likeness will ye compare unto him?
44:24 "Thus saith the Lord,
thy redeemer and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the Lord that
maketh all things, that stretcheth forth the heavens alone, that spreadeth
abroad the earth by myself." Isaiah
46:5,9,10 "To whom will ye liken me and make me equal and compare me,
that we may be like? Remember the former things of old. For I am God and
there is none else. I am God and there is none like me. Declaring the end
from the beginning and from ancient times the things that are not yet done,
saying, My counsel shall stand and I will do all my pleasure." Jeremiah
10:6 "Forasmuch as there is none like unto thee, O LORD. Thou art great,
and thy name is great in might." Jeremiah
32:17,27 "Ah Lord GOD! behold, thou hast made
the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm,
and there is nothing too hard for thee?...Behold, I am the LORD, the God
of all flesh. Is there any thing too hard for me?"
Moses had the
same question about who God was. God answered him telling him that He (God)
was as is defined by His attributes: Self Existent and the Cause of all
good (including evil,
which also has an ultimate good purpose) -Exodus
original word for 'God' in the Old
Testament is 'elohim', a plural word and means a family, a
group of strong ones, divine ones.
this together with
we see that God
is one family-(Mark
1Peter 2:10; 2Corinthians
Hebrews 12:22), the Father
being the 'head', as to which the original word for God in the
Testament refers. God is love -1John
God is spirit
and the Father of spirits -Hebrews 12:9;
5:5; Numbers 16:22; 27:16.
He isn't the father of the
things of the flesh-(mentally
speaking) -Ecclesiastes 7:29.
once having accepted what God has for us in Christ, are in the spirit realm
and now serve in the spirit;
that is, our priorities involve motivations and expressions of the spiritual
things such as love, forgiveness, kindness, etc.
in the flesh, being subject to fleshly lusts (desires) as we all are, yet
came to understand, as we should too, that the lasting and permanently
beneficial things are the spiritual -1Peter
are things to do with expressing love.
a Father, God talks to us -2Corinthians
12:8,9. The more one becomes aware of the presence of God in him, the
more he can differentiate between his own thoughts and those from God.
That's why study and prayer (talking to God) time
alone with God is important.
is Spirit -John
4:24 "God is Spirit and they that worship
Him must worship Him in spirit-(inside

17:17 ".....Thy word is truth."
