Divine Attributes

The Freedom of God

God is free, therefore, He possesses universal authority. He doesn’t have to request permission from anyone.

The Spirituality of God

For others, to say that someone is spiritual is to suggest that he or she has a generic interest in religious or supernatural matters. However, to speak of SPIRITUALITY as an Attribute of God is to identify Him as a spirit — an immaterial, invisible, and infinite being that is fundamentally distinct from every material, visible, and finite creatures.

The Invisibility of God

One of the attributes of God that describes His being is invisibility. Being immaterial, He doesn’t have a physical form. He is not composed of any kind of material or substance perceivable by the bodily senses. God is invisible. His total essence, all of His being, will never be visible to us.

The Immateriality of God

God is self-existent; therefore, He was not made. He was not created. The divine essence is entirely a spirit, and a spirit cannot be flesh, bone, and blood.

The Immutability of God

There was never a time when He was not, and there will never come a time when He will cease to be. All that He is now is all that He’s ever been.

The Immanence of God

Immanence describes a God who is always at hand—actively and personally working through even the littlest details of the lives of His creations.

The Transcendence of God

The phrase “far above” doesn’t refer to physical distance. God is non-physical, He is omnipresent, He is with us all the time. Therefore, He can never be really far from us.

The Omnipresence of God

Right at this very moment, God is with me; He is close to you; He is next to everyone and everything else in the entire universe.

The Infinitude of God

If the accuracy of the definition of ‘infinity’ is to be considered, it must be inarguable that there is actually nothing and no one in the universe that is infinite — nothing and no one except God.

The Eternity of God

God is able to see the future, not because He can foresee it but because He has already lived in it—just as He is living in the present, just as He has lived in the past.

The Self-Sufficiency of God

In His self-sufficiency, we can find rest in Him and be assured that His blessings and provisions will never run out.

The Self-Existence of God

The intelligent boasts that there’s nothing they do not know or that there is nothing they cannot learn, but the humble admit that there’re some things they can never know.

The Attributes of God

An attribute of God is whatever God has in any way revealed as being true about Himself. He does not possess them as qualities; they are how God is.
