INTRODUCTION – Let’s Learn A Little Bit About God. Who Does Scripture Claim God To Be?

Jeremiah 10:10 But the Lord is the true God and the God of truth (the God Who is Truth). He is the living God and the everlasting King. At His wrath the earth quakes, and the nations are not able to bear His indignation. AMP

Just Who is God? This introductory verse shares with us that God is the “living God,” “the true God,” “the God of truth,” and “the everlasting King.” In short, there is no other God like Him!
Isaiah 45:18 For thus says the Lord — Who created the heavens, God Himself, Who formed the earth and made it, Who established it and did not create it to be a worthless waste; He formed it to be inhabited — I am the Lord, and there is no one else. AMP
Isaiah 45:21 Declare and bring forward your strong arguments [for praying to gods that cannot save]; yes, take counsel together. Who announced this [the rise of Cyrus and his conquests] beforehand (long ago)? [What god] declared it of old? Was it not I, the Lord? And there is no other God besides Me, a rigidly and uncompromisingly just and righteous God and Savior; there is none besides Me. AMP

[Matt 9:4; John 2:24,25.] 3 You sift and search out my path and my lying down, and You are acquainted with all my ways. 4 For there is not a word in my tongue [still unuttered], but, behold, O Lord, You know it altogether. [Heb 4:13.] AMP
Revelation 21:3 Then I heard a mighty voice from the throne and I perceived its distinct words, saying, See! The abode of God is with men, and He will live (encamp, tent) among them; and they shall be His people, and God shall personally be with them and be their God. [Ezek 37:27.] AMP

God is omnipresent – As Spirit, He is able to be everywhere at once!

Psalms 139:7-12 Where could I go from Your Spirit? Or where could I flee from Your presence? 8 If I ascend up into heaven, You are there; if I make my bed in Sheol (the place of the dead), behold, You are there. [Rom 11:33.] 9 If I take the wings of the morning or dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, 10 Even there shall Your hand lead me, and Your right hand shall hold me. 11 If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me and the night shall be [the only] light about me, 12 Even the darkness hides nothing from You, but the night shines as the day; the darkness and the light are both alike to You. [Dan 2:22.] AMP
Jeremiah 23:23-24 Am I a God at hand, says the Lord, and not a God afar off? 24 Can anyone hide himself in secret places so that I cannot see him? says the Lord. Do not I fill heaven and earth? says the Lord. AMP

God is also eternal meaning He has no beginning nor end. He is NOT created meaning somehow He has always been/existed!
Psalms 90:2 Before the mountains were brought forth or ever You had formed and given birth to the earth and the world {creation}, even from everlasting to everlasting You are God. AMP

God is Triune i.e. He is represented as three Persons but as ONE God. Jesus Christ is unique as He is represented as TWO Persons – God the Son and the Son of Man. Each Person of the Trinity is Eternal! Carefully study the following scriptures and translations to understand what God’s Word can say.

Daniel 7:9 I kept looking until thrones were placed [for the assessors with the Judge], and the Ancient of Days [God, the eternal Father] took His seat, Whose garment was white as snow and the hair of His head like pure wool.

This [{Son of} Man] is the true God and Life eternal. AMP
