At the beginning of this message this morning I want to tell you a little bit about the nature of God. I want to give you some things about God that make Him God.

First of all the Bible teaches us that God is a spirit.

John 4:24

God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

Secondly God is eternal, immortal and everlasting.

1 Timothy 1:17

Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.

God is eternal. He is the first and the last. He has no beginning and he has no ending. You and I will live forever somewhere for eternity but God is the only one that also has no beginning. He is eternal in the past as well as the future. Before the very first stroke of time ever happened God already was.

Thirdly, God is immutable. That means he never changes. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. In this world that everything is changing all the time God remains the same.

Malachi 3:6

For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

In this old world where everything changes from day to day God isn’t changing.

∑ Morals are changing – we just don’t have anymore

∑ The lines of conduct and behavior are being erased

∑ Boundaries that once kept us on the right pathway are being pushed back further and further and finally are being taken down altogether.

∑ What was wrong yesterday is right today. What was right yesterday is wrong today.

Fourthly, God is Omniscient. That means he is all knowing. He is the only wise God. He knows the number of hairs on my head. He knows what you have need of today. He knows what your feeling right now. He knows what tomorrow holds for you. There is no thought that is withheld for Him.

Psalm 139:1-6

1 O LORD, thou hast searched me, and known me.

2 Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off.

3 Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways.

4 For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O LORD, thou knowest it altogether.

5 Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.

God is omnipresent. That means he is everywhere present at the same time.

He is in:

∑ Waterbury right now

∑ Danbury

∑ Middletown

∑ Hartford

All at the same time.

He is in:

∑ USA right now

∑ Germany

∑ Guatemala

∑ Japan

All at the same time.

Psalm 139:7-13

7 Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?

8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.

9 If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;

10 Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.

11 If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me.

12 Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.
