A-Z Attributes of God
Functional Outline
Attributes & Verses

Alpha - Beginning
Revelation 22:13 - "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last."



Bountiful
Psalm 50:10 - For every beast of the forest is Mine, And the cattle on a thousand hills.
He seeks to bless His people. Ask, Seek, Knock!

Haggai 2:8 - 'The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine,' says the LORD of hosts.
In Acts 3 - Peter and John: "Silver and Gold have I none…" - whether we see Gold and Silver here or not, we'll see something even more beautiful in the life to come -- both New Jerusalem as well as our Savior, Yeshua/Jesus!



Creator - Speaking everything into existence -- "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth" (Genesis 1:1). We also see from John 1 that Jesus was present and active at Creation.



Deliverer
He rescues and saves us
Jethro, Moses' father-in-law:
Exodus 18:10 - And Jethro said, "Blessed be the LORD, who has delivered you out of the hand of the Egyptians and out of the hand of Pharaoh, and who has delivered the people from under the hand of the Egyptians.



Everlasting
"From everlasting to everlasting, you are God"
Psalm 90:2 - "Before the mountains were brought forth, Or ever You had formed the earth and the world, Even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God."



Father
Personal, relational, caring, involved
He gives the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him.
Luke 11:13 - "If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!"



Gracious
He grants us blessings that we don’t deserve
Psalm 145:8 - "The LORD is gracious and full of compassion, Slow to anger and great in mercy."

Ephesians 2:8-9
8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,
9 not of works, lest anyone should boast.



Healer
When the LORD made the bitter water (at Marah) sweet:
Exodus 15:26 - "If you diligently heed the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the LORD who heals you."



Infinite
Psalm 147:5 - Great is our Lord, and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite.
He is not limited by time and space -- seek Him! In all things, He is able to help.



Just
Isaiah 45:21 - Tell and bring forth your case; Yes, let them take counsel together. Who has declared this from ancient time? Who has told it from that time? Have not I, the LORD? And there is no other God besides Me, A just God and a Savior; There is none besides Me.

Thankfully, God is also Merciful. Our sins will be dealt with justly -- will you have to pay and experience God's wrath, or will you receive the gift of forgiveness through Jesus Christ and experience His mercy?



King
Revelation 17:14 - "These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful."

Revelation 19:16 - And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.



Lion & Lamb
Revelation 5:5 - But one of the elders said to me, "Do not weep.
