Introduction

He is a very balanced God.

Proverbs 16:11: “A just weight and balance are the LORD’S: all the weights of the bag are his work.”

A false balance is an abomination to the Lord.

Proverbs 11:1: “A false balance is abomination to the LORD: but a just weight is his delight.”

God’s ways are perfect.

2 Samuel 22:31: “As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him.”

He is perfect in His work.

Deuteronomy 32:4: “He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.”

God the Father is perfect. God is not god if He is not 100% perfect.

Matthew 5:48:Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.”

 

God’s Attributes

Part 1: The Communicable Attributes of God (Attributes That Man Can Grasp)

Hatred of God

  • God hates people as well.

    Malachi 1:3: “And I hated Esau, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness.”

  • God hates all workers of iniquities.

    Psalm 11:5: “The LORD trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth.”

  • God hated his own people.

         Psalm 78:59: “When God heard this, he was wroth, and greatly abhorred Israel:”

  • Notice: For God so loveD the world …

    John 3:16:For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

    The only time that God loved every single lost sinner is at Calvary. The reason why God loves saved sinners is that they looked at Him at Calvary and asked the Lord Jesus Christ to save them.

Love of God

  • The saved can understand God’s love more than unbelievers.

    1 John 3:1: “Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.”

  • Even though men didn’t love God, he still loved them.

    1 John 4:8-10:He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.”

  • God loves man as much as He loves His only begotten Son.

    John 17:26:And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.”

  • True love is loving someone who doesn’t love you.

    Matthew 5:46:For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?”

  • God’s love is everlasting if one is His child. Nothing can separate them from the love of God.

    Romans 8:38-39:For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

God’s Judgment

  • His Judgment is perfect.

    Deuteronomy 32:4: “He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.”

    Genesis 18:25: “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?”

  • There is no other God besides Him.

    Isaiah 45:21: “Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the LORD? and there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me.”

  • His justice is 100% clean and perfect.

    Psalm 19:9: “The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.”

  • God will judge men fairly.

    Revelation 20:12:And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.”

  • God doesn’t like judgmental hypocrites.

    Romans 2:1: “Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things.”

  • God is perfect and just. If there is eternal life in heaven, there will be eternal damnation in hell.

    Matthew 25:46:And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.”

Mercy of God

  • His mercy endureth forever.

    1 Chronicles 16:34: “O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever.”
    1 Chronicles 16:41: “And with them Heman and Jeduthun, and the rest that were chosen, who were expressed by name, to give thanks to the LORD, because his mercy endureth for ever;”

    Ezra 3:11: “And they sang together by course in praising and giving thanks unto the LORD; because he is good, for his mercy endureth for ever toward Israel. And all the people shouted with a great shout, when they praised the LORD, because the foundation of the house of the LORD was laid.”
    Jeremiah 33:11: “The voice of joy, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the voice of them that shall say, Praise the LORD of hosts: for the LORD is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: and of them that shall bring the sacrifice of praise into the house of the LORD. For I will cause to return the captivity of the land, as at the first, saith the LORD.”

  • God will show mercy even to the worst sinner.

    Luke 18:13-14:And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner. I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.”

  • God delights in mercy rather than justice.

    Micah 7:18: “Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy.”

Holiness of God

  • God is holy.

    Habakkuk 1:13: “Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity: wherefore lookest thou upon them that deal treacherously, and holdest thy tongue when the wicked devoureth the man that is more righteous than he?”

There is no one as holy as God.

1 Samuel 2:2: “There is none holy as the LORD: for there is none beside thee: neither is there any rock like our God.”

Isaiah 6:3: “And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.”

Exodus 15:11: “Who is like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods? who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?”

 

The Longsuffering of God

  • God is longsuffering.

    Numbers 14:17-18:And now, I beseech thee, let the power of my Lord be great, according as thou hast spoken, saying, The LORD is longsuffering, and of great mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression, and by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation.”

  • God delights in overlooking one’s sins.
    Longsuffering: putting off with, tolerating with, being patient with
    No matter how many times, He isn’t the type to hold onto anger. He delights in giving His mercy.

    Micah 7:18: “Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy.”
    2 Peter 3:9: “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.”

God’s Wrath

  • God is a consuming fire and a jealous God.

    Deuteronomy 4:24: “For the LORD thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God.”

  • His wrath is like metaphorical fire.

    Psalm 89:46: “How long, LORD? wilt thou hide thyself for ever? shall thy wrath burn like fire?”
    Ezekiel 38:19: “For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel;”

  • Wrath can be literal hellfire as well.

    Revelation 14:10: “The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:”

  • Wrath of God = Hell

    John 3:36: “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.”

  • One can be angry but not sin. The right kind of anger is being angry at sin.

    Ephesians 4:26: “Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:”
    Matthew 5:22:But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.”

  • God’s compassion appeases His wrath.

    Psalm 78:38: “But he, being full of compassion, forgave their iniquity, and destroyed them not: yea, many a time turned he his anger away, and did not stir up all his wrath.”
    Micah 7:19: “He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.”

  • The key to His compassion is the blood of Jesus Christ.

    Hebrews 9:22: “And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.”
    Isaiah 53:5: “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”

    Ephesians 2:13: “But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.”

  • If Jesus can have compassion for others, why can’t you?

    Matthew 18:25-33:But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to be made. The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all. Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt. But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellowservants, which owed him an hundred pence: and he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, Pay me that thou owest. And his fellowservant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all. And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt. So when his fellowservants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and told unto their lord all that was done. Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because thou desiredst me: Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee?”

Jealousy of God

  •  God is jealous.

Nahum 1:2: “God is jealous, and the LORD revengeth; the LORD revengeth, and is furious; the LORD will take vengeance on his adversaries, and he reserveth wrath for his enemies.”

  • Another name of God is ‘Jealous’.

    Exodus 34:14: “For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God:”

  • Right kind of jealousy: godly jealousy

    2 Corinthians 11:2: “For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.”

Faithfulness of God

  • God’s faithfulness is so long in time and distance.

    Deuteronomy 7:9: “Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations;”
    Psalm 36:5: “Thy mercy, O LORD, is in the heavens; and thy faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds.”

  • When men were saved, they were given the faithful promises of God.

    1 Corinthians 1:9: “God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.”

  • God’s faithfulness is also called ‘exceeding and precious promises’.

    2 Peter 1:4: “Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.”

  • God will never give one a burden that they cannot bear.

    1 Corinthians 10:13: “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.”

  • If one confesses their sins to God, He is faithful to forgive their sins and to cleanse them from all unrighteousness.

    1 John 1:7-9:But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

    Revelation 21:1-5: “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.”

Righteousness of God

  • God is righteous.

    Psalm 116:5: “Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful.”

  • God is so righteous that men cannot stand in front of Him.

    Ezra 9:15: “O LORD God of Israel, thou art righteous: for we remain yet escaped, as it is this day: behold, we are before thee in our trespasses: for we cannot stand before thee because of this.”

  • Mankind thinks that their righteousness is much better than God’s.

    Romans 10:3-4: “For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.”

  • Man’s righteousness is like a filthy rag compared to God’s righteousness.

    Isaiah 64:6: “But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.”

  • God is righteous in what He does even when things are bad.

    Jeremiah 12:1: “Righteous art thou, O LORD, when I plead with thee: yet let me talk with thee of thy judgments: Wherefore doth the way of the wicked prosper? wherefore are all they happy that deal very treacherously?”
    Psalm 145:17: “The LORD is righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his works.”

Uprighteousness of God

Uprighteous means that God is fair and righteous.

Psalm 25:8: “Good and upright is the LORD: therefore will he teach sinners in the way.”

Psalm 119:137: “TZADDI. Righteous art thou, O LORD, and upright are thy judgments.”

Psalm 92:15: “To shew that the LORD is upright: he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.”

Proverbs 15:8: “The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD: but the prayer of the upright is his delight.”

 

Grace of God

  • The Lord is gracious.

    Exodus 34:6: “And the LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth,”

  • King David knew God was gracious.

    2 Samuel 12:21-22: “Then said his servants unto him, What thing is this that thou hast done? thou didst fast and weep for the child, while it was alive; but when the child was dead, thou didst rise and eat bread. And he said, While the child was yet alive, I fasted and wept: for I said, Who can tell whether God will be gracious to me, that the child may live?”

  • The children of Israel sinned over and over again against God. He had to put up with that and punish them all the time. Even though He had to go through the cycle so many times, He is still gracious.

    2 Kings 13:23: “And the LORD was gracious unto them, and had compassion on them, and had respect unto them, because of his covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and would not destroy them, neither cast he them from his presence as yet.”

    2 Chronicles 30:9: “For if ye turn again unto the LORD, your brethren and your children shall find compassion before them that lead them captive, so that they shall come again into this land: for the LORD your God is gracious and merciful, and will not turn away his face from you, if ye return unto him.”

    Nehemiah 9:17: “And refused to obey, neither were mindful of thy wonders that thou didst among them; but hardened their necks, and in their rebellion appointed a captain to return to their bondage: but thou art a God ready to pardon, gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and forsookest them not.”

  • No matter how many times men sin, His grace is greater.

    Romans 5:20: “Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:”

  • Once man tastes God’s grace, they will know the beauty of God’s graciousness.

    1 Peter 2:3: “If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.”

Goodness of God

  • To know what is good or bad in this world that sets no boundaries for sin, men have God as the explanation.

    Psalm 25:8: “Good and upright is the LORD: therefore will he teach sinners in the way.”
    Psalm 119:68: “Thou art good, and doest good; teach me thy statutes.”

  • God is so good that it can last for generations, and that verse says that ‘O if only you can understand by tasting His goodness’.

    Psalm 100:5: “For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.”
    Psalm 34:8: “O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.”

Our God is True

  • This shows that God is the only true God.

    John 17:3: “And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.”

  • No matter who they are or how right they sound, God is the only truth.

    Romans 3:4: “God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.”

  • God’s name is True.

    Revelation 19:11: “And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.”

  • God’s words are true.

    2 Samuel 7:28: “And now, O Lord GOD, thou art that God, and thy words be true, and thou hast promised this goodness unto thy servant:”

  • God’s words are true from the beginning.

    Psalm 119:160: “Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.”

Greatness of God

  • No God is greater than God.

    2 Samuel 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.”

  • His creations and thoughts are so great.

    Psalm 86:10: “For thou art great, and doest wondrous things: thou art God alone.”
    Psalm 139:17: “How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!”

  • God is so great, He deserves to be greatly praised.

    Psalm 48:1: “(A Song and Psalm for the sons of Korah.) Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of his holiness.”
    Psalm 96:4: “For the LORD is great, and greatly to be praised: he is to be feared above all gods.”
    Psalm 145:3: “Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.”

Terrible
Meaning: great awe or fear

  • This shows the terrible nature of God.

    Psalm 47:2: “For the LORD most high is terrible; he is a great King over all the earth.”

  • Examples of how terrible God is:

    Joel 2:11: “And the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?”
    Psalm 106:22: “Wondrous works in the land of Ham, and terrible things by the Red sea.”
    Psalm 66:3: “Say unto God, How terrible art thou in thy works! through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies submit themselves unto thee.”
    Nehemiah 1:5: “And said, I beseech thee, O LORD God of heaven, the great and terrible God, that keepeth covenant and mercy for them that love him and observe his commandments:”
    Nehemiah 9:32: “Now therefore, our God, the great, the mighty, and the terrible God, who keepest covenant and mercy, let not all the trouble seem little before thee, that hath come upon us, on our kings, on our princes, and on our priests, and on our prophets, and on our fathers, and on all thy people, since the time of the kings of Assyria unto this day.”

Part 2: The Incommunicable Attributes of God (Attributes That Man Cannot Grasp)

Infinity

  • God had always existed.

    Genesis 1:1: “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”

  • God is eternal.

    Deuteronomy 33:27: “The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out the enemy from before thee; and shall say, Destroy them.”

  • Eternal God can give eternal life.

    John 10:28:And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.”

  • God is literally the beginning and the end, the alpha and the omega.

    Revelation 22:13:I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.”

Immortality of God

Meaning: living forever

  • God is immortal, and He never dies.

    1 Timothy 1:17: “Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.”
    1 Timothy 6:15-16: “Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords; Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.”

    Revelation 10:6: “And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:”

  • The word of God liveth and abideth forever.

    1 Peter 1:23: “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.”

  • If God cannot die, then He cannot be the god of the dead. He is God of the living. He became both God of the living and the dead when He died and rose with eternal life.

    Romans 14:9: “For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living.”

Immutability (unchanging) of God

  • God does not change.

    Malachi 3:6: “For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.”

  • God never contradicts Himself.

    James 1:17: “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.”

  • God doesn’t repent (meaning: change of mind) when He commits to oath or writing.

    1 Samuel 15:29: “And also the Strength of Israel will not lie nor repent: for he is not a man, that he should repent.”
    Numbers 23:19: “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?”

    Romans 11:29: “For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.”

    The context here is not committed to oath or writing:

    Genesis 6:6: “And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.”
    1 Samuel 15:10-11: “Then came the word of the LORD unto Samuel, saying, It repenteth me that I have set up Saul to be king: for he is turned back from following me, and hath not performed my commandments. And it grieved Samuel; and he cried unto the LORD all night.”

Invisibility of God

  • Examples of God’s invisibility:
    God exists, but Job cannot see Him.

Job 23:8-9: “Behold, I go forward, but he is not there; and backward, but I cannot perceive him: On the left hand, where he doth work, but I cannot behold him: he hideth himself on the right hand, that I cannot see him:”

1 Timothy 1:17: “Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.”

Romans 1:20: “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:”

Colossians 1:13-15: “Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:”

Omnipotence (all-powerful) of God

  • God created something out of nothing.

    Genesis 1:1: “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”

  • When God commands, it will be created.

    Genesis 1:3: “And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.”

  • His creation is perfect.

    Genesis 1:4: “And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.”

  • God can do anything.

    Job 42:2: “I know that thou canst do every thing, and that no thought can be withholden from thee.”

  • Is there anything impossible for God?

    Jeremiah 32:27: “Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?”
    Matthew 19:26: “But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.”

  • Men can do all things through Christ.

    Philippians 4:13: “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”

  • It is impossible for God to lie.

    Hebrews 6:18: “That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us:”

  • Without faith, it is impossible to please God.

    Hebrews 11:6: “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”

Omnipresence (everywhere) of God

God is present anywhere in creation.

  • God is everywhere. Men cannot run away from Him. He is always there with them.

    Psalm 139:7: “Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?”
    Jeremiah 23:23: “Am I a God at hand, saith the LORD, and not a God afar off?”

    Ephesians 1:23: “Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.”

  • God foreknows.

    Acts 2:23: “Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain:”

    Matthew 10:30:But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.”

  • God knows what a man thinks.

    1 Chronicles 28:9: “And thou, Solomon my son, know thou the God of thy father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind: for the LORD searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts: if thou seek him, he will be found of thee; but if thou forsake him, he will cast thee off for ever.”
    Psalm 94:11: “The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.”

    Job 42:2: “I know that thou canst do every thing, and that no thought can be withholden from thee.”
    Ecclesiastes 12:14: “For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.”

  • No one can search for God’s understanding.

    Isaiah 40:28: “Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.”
