PART 5: WHAT IS GOD LIKE?

06-December-2018 by Timothy Wanjohi

‘…for God is love’ – 1 John 4:8.


 

If I were able to know that God exists, and to know that He can be known, and to know what His nature is as one spirit, who is personal and triune, it would be of no benefit to me if I did not know of His benign character. There is such a triune love that the Father so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son (John 3:16). The Son loved me and gave Himself for me (Galatians 2:20). Consequently, the Holy Ghost exhorts me by His love (Romans 15:30). Man can only relate with God, by knowing His attributes. They are what He is like.

PART 4: WHO IS GOD?

'...we ought not to think that God is like unto gold, or silver, or stone...' - Acts 17:29.


 

God created man to glorify Him. Man glorifies God primarily by worshipping Him. Man cannot worship anything he does not know. The knowledge and the worship of God are synonymous with each other. God cannot be worshipped apart from His true self. Everything else is an idol. Referring to anything false as God, is taking His name in vain. It is God's nature that reveals who He is. There is only one Entity who fits this description. He, is God. 'I am the LORD, and there is no other...' (Isaiah 45:5).

PART 3: WHAT IS GOD?

WSC Q 4. “What is God? God is a Spirit, infinite, eternal and unchangeable in His being, wisdom, power, holiness, justice, goodness and truth.”


 

If God exists and He can be known as we have seen in (Parts 1 and 2), then what is God? What can be known of what He is can only be what He has revealed in His Word. Knowing what God is can only be from a deliberate revelation from Him. We can experience Him before we ever know much or anything from the Word, but we can never know what He is, because feelings can never suffice to explain Him. From the Scriptures however, we are able to learn that what God is, is His nature and His attributesRead More

PART 2: CAN GOD BE KNOWN?

‘That I may know Him…’ – Philippians 3:10.


 

No Christian should ever teach a message that he does not know for himself, to be of firsthand experience. I testify to you, my friends, that I know God. He has revealed Himself to me, and talked to me, numerous times, through the Holy Spirit. I have felt His presence. I have heard His convicting voice. I have known His warnings and encouragement. He has guided me and still does. He has told me many things, personal and otherwise. And I am telling you from experience. I lie to you not, God is my witness: I know God. That is the only reason I can write this post.

PART 1: DOES GOD EXIST?

‘For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and God-head…’ – Romans 1:20.


 

One definition of a fact by Webster is, a piece of information presented as having objective reality. Facts I have found, inferred or stated, are accepted in the world with ease, until Christianity states them. For example, no one seems to doubt gravity as a fact of the law of nature, because everyone believes in a fall. Those who do not believe in it, can try stepping out of an airplane mid-flight.


In fact, some accepted norms are far from factual, but they are nonetheless received very well by many as facts. Consi . . .
