A. The LORD's Patience

"The Lord is long-suffering and slow to anger, and abundant in mercy and loving-kindness, forgiving iniquity and transgression;"

The LORD's Patience is described as:

1. The LORD is long-suffering

2. The LORD is slow to anger

3. The LORD is abundant in mercy and loving-kindness

4. The LORD is forgiving iniquity and transgression

Explanation:

1. The LORD is long-suffering

Long-suffering (w/ or w/o hyphen) means Bearing injuries or provocation for a long time; patient; not easily provoked. Long endurance; patience of offense. (defined by Webster's dictionary)

Romans 2:4 (Amplified Bible)

Or are you [so blind as to] trifle with and presume upon and despise and underestimate the wealth of His kindness and forbearance and long-suffering patience? Are you unmindful or actually ignorant [of the fact] that God’s kindness is intended to lead you to repent (to change your mind and inner man to accept God’s will)?

2. The LORD is slow to anger

Slow to anger, great mercy or "chesed" in Hebrew meaning: kindness, piety, mercy, merciful.

Psalms 145:8 (Amplified Bible)

The Lord is gracious and full of compassion, slow to anger and abounding in mercy and loving-kindness.

3. The LORD is abundant in mercy and loving-kindness

Loving-kindness means Tender regard; mercy; favor. (defined by Webster's dictionary)

Titus 3:4 (Amplified Bible)

But when the goodness and loving-kindness of God our Savior to man [as man] appeared,

2 Corinthians 12:9 (Amplified Bible)

But He said to me, My grace (My favor and loving-kindness and mercy) is enough for you [sufficient against any danger and enables you to bear the trouble manfully]; for My strength and power are made perfect (fulfilled and completed) and show themselves most effective in [your] weakness. Therefore, I will all the more gladly glory in my weaknesses and infirmities, that the strength and power of Christ (the Messiah) may rest (yes, may pitch a tent over and dwell) upon me!

We can't understand GOD but the LORD JESUS CHRIST more than helped us (infinitely) understand GOD and being full of loving-kindness, we can always trace it back to the LORD JESUS CHRIST. If we try to understand GOD, our finite mind will explode understanding the Infinite One, however, the LORD JESUS CHRIST laid it down for us to understand GOD in His Great Mercies and Loving-Kindness.
