How does the Bible describe God?

Share |

The Bible tells us that God is an infinite and unchangeable spirit, who does not have a body such as we have.

Joh. 4:24: God is a Spirit.

Ps.145:3: His greatness is unsearchable.

Mal. 3:6: I am the Lord, I change not.

God is:
  1. Eternal

    Ps. 90:2: Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.

  2. Omnipresent

    Acts 17:27: (God is) not far from everyone of us.

  3. Omnicient and all-wise

    1 Joh. 3:20: God knoweth all things.

    Job 12:13: With him (God) is wisdom and strength, he hath counsel and understanding.

  4. Omnipotent

    Luke 1:37: With God nothing shall be impossible.

  5. Holy

    Is. 6:3: Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts.

  6. Truthful

    Num. 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?

  7. Righteous

    Deut. 32:4: A God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.

  8. Benevolent, a lover of mankind, gracious, long-suffering.

    Tit. 3:4-5: After that the kindness and love of God our Savior toward man appeared... He saved us.

    Ps. 145:8: The Lord is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy.
