Incomparable God of gods – Part 3

Humans exist in one place and time. No matter how fast we move, once stopped, we remain fixed in that specific location. But not so with God. His powerfully intelligent presence simultaneously exists everywhere within and outside of time. John 4:24 tells us, God is spirit, therefore He does not suffer the limiting spatial restraints like us. Understanding this enabled David to say; where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from your presence? 8 If I ascend to heaven, you are there! If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there! 9 If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, 10 even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me (Psalm 139:7-10). There is no escaping the presence and attention of Almighty God.

God is present in life, in death, in time, in history, in eternity, and in every place in every sphere, Yahweh is the guardian of forever. He is equally and fully present in the constant NOW of His perpetual existence (Jn 5:26). Therefore, at the completion of creation, God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good (Genesis 1:31). Being both omnipresent and omniscient, God saw every facet of all created things simultaneously, and was able to make the assessment, it is all very good. 

God, through His Son Jesus Christ, says I am the Alpha and the Omega, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty (Revelation 1:8). God governs all history simultaneously, looking at and reaching into time at any point as if it were the present, by our way of thinking. Solomon exclaimed, the highest heaven cannot contain you (1 Kings 8:27), to which Isaiah 66:1 adds, thus says the LORD: Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool.

With no hiding place, it is impossible to escape God. There is no place of absolute silence where He does not hear your words or perceive your thoughts. David acknowledged that even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me (Psalm 23:4). No circumstances exist where He is not present and fully aware of you. There is no time when God is not actively engaged with His children. Our inability to perceive His presence does not change the fact of Him being present. Acknowledging God’s presence gives assurance and comfort. He is our hope, He is our help, and He is our certainty.

Yahweh is all present, all seeing, all hearing, all knowing, all powerful, and intimately aware of you and me. Yet His best is that He is HOLY, He is LOVING, and He is a SAVIOUR by natural. Within His dominant authority, He is patient toward you (and I), not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance (2 Peter 3:9). God’s determined love sent His Son Jesus to be our substitute on the cross of Calvary. Taking our death penalty so that all who receive him, who believe in his name, he gives the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God (John 1:12-13).

Jesus calls us to belief in Him, to repentance of our sin, to submission under His Lordship, and to a life of sanctification. This is the God of the Bible, the INCOMPARABLE God of gods!
