The Person of God Series
God's Amazing Attributes: Self-Existent, Immutable, Infinite, Omniscient, Omnipresent, Omnipotent, Holy, Just, Good, Gracious, Faithful, Loving
Did God have a beginning? Why does the self-existence of God matter to us today? Join Jen and I as we explore these questions and discover in Scripture that God was not created; He has no beginning and no end. Instead, He Himself is the Creator of all. God exists from all eternity and to all eternity.
The doctrine of immutability simply means that God is unchangeable. It has been said that the only thing consistent in this life is change. With change everywhere around us, we need something that doesn’t move – doesn’t change – something or Someone on whom we can depend. And that someone is God.
In this episode we examine the fact that God is infinite. Everything in life is measurable. We can measure weight, time, temperature, length. But God cannot be measured. His understanding has no number. If something is beyond measure, it is necessarily infinite. Listen as Jen and I discuss God's infinite and boundless character and how that makes a difference in our lives today.
In our fourth episode looking at the doctrine of the Person of God, we are looking at God’s omniscience. We will be covering the three O’s over the next few weeks: omniscience, omnipotence, and omnipresence; also know as the Three All’s: all-knowing, all-powerful, and all present. God possesses all three of these attributes. The omniscience of God means that He is all knowing. What is our proper response to God’s omniscience?
We are continuing our study of the doctrine of the Person of God. Can God do anything? The word omnipotent means all-powerful. What exactly do we mean when we say that God is “all-powerful”? Does this actually mean that God can do anything and everything?
Loneliness has become a real issue for many during this time of pandemic. Feeling disconnected from people leads to loneliness. And you don’t have to be alone to be lonely. When we think back to Creation, one of the earliest problems that God saw was when He said, “It is not good for man to be alone.” In this episode we discuss the doctrine of God's omnipresence. Is God there when we need Him? Is He there even when we don’t need Him? Is He in Heaven or is He on earth? Or both? Can we truly turn to Him at any time and know He’s there?
