I am just curious, with all the threads out here on CD and here in the Christianity section, about how many different variations of God we actually have.

So, I am asking you to define God in the most basic of definitions. You can use the Bible to help, or to base an already preconceived notion.

I will start.

God IS! By saying God IS, I mean everything and everyone is included in the essence of God. From the flower, to the gnat. From the outter most star, to the core of the earth. God IS, ever present, and always here.

Whether we acknowledge it or not, doesn't matter. God does not change. Ever.

So, what then. How far does one have to search out, to be known by God? Well, since He knew us before we were conceived, that also is irrelevant.

To find the answers that drive us, we must first know God. To know God, is to see the beauty in who our Creator is. To say a thank you, for our gift of being created, and to say we are sorry, for falling short of His Glory. His Word guides and maps out our steps, but we must do the walking.

God will soon be pouring out His Spirit, and the next question is for myself at least is: Am i ready to receive it? Have I cleaned out my closets, and have I prepared my lamp to be filled? I pray that this is so.

God IS!

Thoughts?

God is love. He is the Supreme invisible being that created all things. He is Sovereign, has all power, knows all things, sees beginning to end, upholds, sustains all things, is just, merciful, compassionate, long suffering, full of truth, grace, is light, our Father, Healer, Counselor, our all in all. From Him, through Him, and to Him are all things. (Romans 11:36) God bless.

"God is only one."—Galatians 3:20

JESUS called God "the only true God." ---(John 17:3)

"For us there is one God, the Father, from whom are all things . . . and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things." —1 Corinthians 8:6

At John 20:17 Jesus said to Mary Magdalene: "I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God."

God told Moses, "I am that I am", He is all I will ever need, He still is the Great I Am.

God is beyond definition. I know God as Love. God is all knowing, all powerful, a present help in trouble.

God is: Merciful, faithful, true, our shelter, a strong tower, creator of heaven and earth, my provider, my healer, my banner, my peace my everthing.
