This is a Bible study on Facts about GOD. Click here for a printable Bible Study Guide.
Special Note: There is not enough room in the whole world to write down the Glory of God, the Majesty of God, the Wonder of God, or the Grace of God. No book or website in this world could contain all the fullness of God. God is greater than anything we can imagine. Our meager attempt with this website is to share and give people a glimpse of God's Glory, endless love and compassion which God has reveled of Himself through His word.
The dictionary defines God as the supreme or ultimate reality and the being perfect in power, wisdom, and goodness who is worshipped as creator and ruler of the universe.
The word of God states that God is love and God is the Creator of all things.
God is Eternal. God existed before anything and will remain forever.
In the beginning God was and before the beginning of anything God was. There has never been a time without God.
God is infinite, everlasting, without beginning and without end. God is the only immortal.
God is love. Out of God's timeless and limitless love, God created the universe and created man and woman. God created us to give us all things. It is up to us to accept His free gifts.
God does not force Himself on any person. Each person has a choice to accept the knowledge of God. Every human being has a choice to know God.
God gives every human being a measure of faith which enables us to believe in Him. We are all made capable to have faith in God, no exceptions, but it is ultimately our choice to do so, or not.
God desires us to be where He created us to be, which is with Him for all eternity. By accepting the salvation of God, eternal life, His free gift to all humankind, we become the children of God by His grace through faith in Him, and are permitted to spend eternity with God.
We all have an eternity after we die. Each person has the choice between two eternities, either with God and without God.
Those who choose NOT to believe in God, will spend their eternity without God.
Those who choose to believe in God, will spend their eternity with God.
We all are given the same choice, to have faith in God. Unbelief separates anyone from God for all eternity.
God is the Creator of all things. Nothing that was made was made without God, for God created everything.
We are NOT the creator of our own life. Mankind did not create mankind. God creates all life, when He breathes life into us. Man has never and will never create life. A woman does not create life, she is a host of life, which God created. Without God there is no life. God breathes life into every living creature. Without the breath of God there is no life.
God is the Creator of our lives. We are nothing without God. We do not own our own lives, God does, we own nothing. We only deceive ourselves if we think that we are something.
God is the meaning of our life. Without God there is no meaning to life. We need God in our life to live.
God is enough. God is more than enough. God is sufficient, and our sufficiency is God.
We are all born searching for God. God knows us each individually before we are even born. God is waiting patiently on us to seek Him, to answer His call to us to come to Him. God calls every person to Him, but He does not force us to come to Him, we much choose to come to Him.
God promised from the beginning, if we seek Him that we will find Him. God is always with us, all we need to do is receive the knowledge of Him and accept Him into our life.
God is Omnipotent
God is omnipotent, all powerful, having supreme and limitless authority over all things.
No one can do what God can do
God is Over All
God reigns over all His creation. God is ruler over all. God owns all things, everything that we know about, all we can see and all we cannot see belongs to God alone.
Only the one true living God is the Most High over all the earth.
God is truth
God cannot lie
Eternal life was promised before the world began. From the creation of the first man, first human being, it has been God's will for man to have eternal life and be with Him, God in His Kingdom, the Kingdom of Heaven.
The first estate of man was eternal life. Man was created to possess eternal life.
Man gave up his inheritance to everlasting life, when he purposefully sinned against God. Man choose to listen to the lies of the devil, by believing in the devil, man fell into unbelief in God, man believed the devil over God, sinned against God.
Separation from God is unbelief in God. Unless we have faith in God, we will not see God in our eternity. Unbelief in God separates anyone from God for eternity.
It is not God's will that any of His creation, any person, perish and die in sin.
God of truth and without sin
God is the Rock, the word of God is perfect, God is a God of truth without iniquity, without sin, God is just and right.
God is the great I AM. God is the I AM of all creation. The Lord God is the I AM.
I AM THAT I AM
I am the Almighty God
I am the LORD
I am GOD
I am HE
The scriptures tell us that there is ONLY ONE GOD.
ONE GOD means that there is ONE God; and this means there is ONE GOD, NOT two Gods, NOT three Gods, there is ONE ALMIGHTY GOD, who is the ONE Creator of ALL THINGS.
There has always been only ONE GOD. There has always only existed ONE GOD. There will only be ONE GOD for eternity.
The LORD GOD is one God, before Him there was no other God formed, and there is no other God after Him. There has been one God in eternity forever.
The Lord our God is ONE Lord
Jesus Christ is LORD and the only begotten Son of our Father God and they are one God.
These three: Father God and the Word Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost are one God.
No other three are called one, only these three are called ONE.
We are to be baptized in the name of one God: the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost.
How can three be one? Some people like to argue that three cannot be one, so how can three be one God, simply because these three are God.
Faith in God is believing that God is all who He says that He is.
Faith in God is not believing just some of what He says, NO, faith in God is believing ALL who He says that He is.
God says that the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost are one, so they are. We are not to dispute the word of God.
Faith in God is believing that He is God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost.
Only through saving faith can anyone believe in God. The sinful veil of darkness must be lifted from your eyes to see God. Through faith in God we can know that He is all that He says He is, without faith in God you remain blind to the truth.
Without faith in God, without believing that God is who He is, you will not see God.
Only through faith in God, faith in Jesus Christ as God the Son, can the veil of darkness be removed, and you can turn from darkness to light, from unknowing to knowing, from death to life everlasting.
God is ONE
So if I believe there is only one God I am saved? No, the scriptures say that the devil believes there is one God. Believing in one God does not grant salvation.
So why does God refer to Himself as "us"?
If God is one God why does He refer to Himself as "us", because there are three in Heaven and these three are one God.
God tells us that there are three that bear record in heaven: The Father, the Word; and the Holy Ghost - and these three are one.
The Father, the Word and the Holy Ghost are one
The word of God tells us that God the Father, the Word Christ Jesus and the Holy Ghost, that these three are ONE.
ONE what? Who is the Father, but God, these three are one God.
God the Father can be nothing other than God.
The Word, which is Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God. The Son of God came forth from God. God can only beget God, the Son of God, Jesus Christ is God, God the Son.
The Holy Ghost is from God, and nothing but God can come forth from God, only God can come forth from God, the Holy Ghost is God.
God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost are ONE GOD.
How can this be? No one can be three entities in one? But that thinking is man thinking and wrong. God can do anything.
Please note: Only these three are one. The word of God did NOT say every time that three things are grouped together that they are one, God said that THESE THREE are ONE. Not other groupings of three people are one.
God the Father and the Son of God CANNOT be separated. They are ONE.
Jesus said "I AND my Father are ONE." God the Father can only be God. The Son of God is God - they are ONE.
God never said that 'man and God are one', or that God and me are one. We are to be holy as God, we are to follow His Son, we are to live righteous lives as God, but we are never one God, and we are never gods.
A lot of new religions today like to claim that God is a man, or that man is God, these are all false teachings, because God said that He is NOT a man.
False religions and the lost like to bring God down to their level and make Him just like them or any other sinful man.
God is NOT a man
So many false religions today say man is God, and God is man, this scripture corrects that statement and clearly states God is not a man.
What man would even suggest that they are God? That's blasphemy!
What does scripture tell us?
Who said they are God? Satan said he was God and God cast satan out from heaven to be separated for eternity from God.
God cannot sin. God is NOT human. God is Spirit. God is the Creator. God is Eternal. God is Holy. God is above ALL things.
God is the beginning and the end, Alpha and Omega, the first and last. God existed before ALL things. God was before anything before. God is the first of ALL things.
Anyone who says God is man, does not know God, and does not know His word.
Man is NOT God. God is NOT man and man is NOT God.
When we are saved, we become the children of God, but we are never God.
There is only one God. There has always been one God and there will always be only one true God.
All throughout the word of God, the saved, the believers of Christ Jesus, are called the children of God, each believer of God is a child of God.
I will always be a child of God. After 10,000 years in Heaven, I will still be a child of God.
God's position has never and will never change, HE will always be God, the only one true living God Almighty. Nothing will ever change that.
No man or woman can ever become God.
Believers are NOT 'a god' and we are NOT 'little gods'. It is blasphemous to say you are God, or a god, because there is only One Lord God. To say there is more than one God is calling God a liar.
Many people say that since we are OF God, then we are some sort of God, maybe a "little god". This is NOT biblical and this is NOT true. Only God is God. Human beings cannot and never will be God, or any form of gods.
Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God. Jesus was not created by God. God manifest Himself in the flesh is Jesus. Jesus was begotten of God, Jesus came forth from God to live as a man on this earth. Jesus has always existed. Jesus has always been with God. Jesus has always been God, and will be God for eternity.
Many people cannot comprehend the fact that God can do anything that He wants to do, or be anyone or anything that He wants to be. The Godhead, the fullness of God is Jesus Christ, and has always been this way.
Many people cannot believe that God is in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost. God has always existed this way.
God is the Creator of all things. God created all things that we know about. Why can't people believe God is who He says He is? Why don't all people have faith in God? God says that the lost people are blind to the truth. God says that we must believe in Him as God the Father and believe in Him as God the Son and believe in Him as God the Holy Ghost, or we cannot be OF God.
We as human beings are not begotten of God, we were created by God.
All humankind was created by God.
We are OF God through adoption by His Son, Jesus Christ.
We are the children of God by adoption, we are adopted into the family of God.
We are the children of God through adoption, we are saved by the grace of God through faith, belief in His only begotten Son, faith in Jesus Christ, faith in God.
We as adopted children of God, we inherit the Kingdom of God only through our kinship with Christ Jesus. Through our relationship with Jesus Christ we belong to God the Father. We become members of the household of God through our relationship with God the Son.
As children of God, adopted through Jesus into the family of God, we are co-heirs to the kingdom of God, joint-heirs with Christ.
Being adopted into the family of God does NOT make believers into Christ, or into God or into gods or into any form of gods.
Being saved does NOT make any man a god.
You may say, but what about the scripture that says 'Ye are gods'. This scripture, like many scriptures, has been taken out of context by many false teaches and false religions.
These scriptures refer to the people at that time that were using their authority as gods. If you read the entire chapter you see that these people who abused their authority were condemned.
Anyone, any human being, man or woman, that says that they are god or gods, or any form of gods will also be condemned by the one true living God.
Anyone saying they are God or a god, or little gods, receives the wrath of God. DO NOT BE DECEIVED.
To say you are as god or god, puts you into the position of God, equal to God, equal as Creator, there is only one Creator, the one true living God.
Only God is the Creator of all things. Without repentance, no one can say that they are God without damnation.
Some people pull certain scriptures out of the bible to condone and validate their false teachings or their living a certain sinful lifestyle.
Take for example the scripture John 1:20 which says, "And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ."
Why would Jesus deny he is the Christ? (Well, He didn't.) If we read the verse before that one, John 1:19, we can see that it was not Jesus stating "I am not the Christ", but it was John.
You can pull out any number of scriptures out from the word of God and twist them to say something they do not mean, practically anything you want. People twist the word of God every day to have it meet their perverted false teachings.
People can manipulate the scriptures to support any number of perverse ideas and theories. Cults do this all the time, to convert followers into their false religions.
Cults cannot tell their potential members that they serve satan, because most people would not join. But if they pervert the word of God, twist scripture to support their false teachings, they can trick many people into believing and following their ungodly ways.
God knows this today, as He did back in biblical times, and in His Word we find many scriptures that tell us about such people, who twist His words for their own profit and who change His scriptures to promote their false doctrine.
Avoid those who cause divisions with false doctrines.
Do NOT be deceived, people with false doctrines serve only the devil.
A little of false teaching is still false teaching and partial truth is still a lie.
Any teaching contrary to the word of God is from the devil by people who serve satan. God says that we are to avoid such people.
We are living in the end times.
These are the last years of the world as we know it, the Lord God is coming soon for His followers, His people.
The scriptures say in the latter times some people will depart from the faith and depart from the sound doctrine of Christ, being seduced by the devil into false doctrines.
False doctrines are everywhere today. Every town in America contains cults and false doctrines being preached. All around the world there are people worshipping the devil, engaged in witchcraft and other false doctrines. These lost souls would rather hear a lie than the truth of God, the word of God reads that they turn away their ears from the truth and turn to fables and lies.
More than any other time, it is extremely important that we as believer stay in, abide in the doctrine of Christ, remain separated unto the gospel of God.
By abiding in the doctrine of Christ, remaining separated unto the gospel of God, we hold fast the profession of our faith, hold onto our salvation.
We transgress - sin - when we do NOT abide in the doctrine of Christ.
The word of God reads those who do NOT abide in the doctrine of Christ, that they do NOT have the Father and the Son, they hath NOT God.
Those of us who abide in the doctrine of Christ have both the Father and the Son.
The scriptures go on further to say that we should NOT bring any false doctrines into our homes and those that listen and watch these false doctrines are guilty of their evil deeds.
Most of what is on television is NOT the doctrine of Christ.
Most of what is on television is false doctrine.
The scriptures tell us, that if we listen to false doctrine, doctrine that does NOT support Christ, listen to those people that do NOT believe in Jesus, we are as guilty as they are of their sin.
What is false doctrine on television? What is evil? What is unholy?
False doctrine is more that just preachers who promote themselves and their own doctrine instead of the word of God.
False doctrine is anything contrary to the Gospel of Christ, the Doctrine of God, the Doctrine of Christ, which is the word of God.
Most television programs promote false doctrines that are contrary to the word of God. Many television programs today promote lying, cheating, coveting, greed, idolatry, nakedness, swearing, murder, adultery, sin, blasphemy, wickedness, hatred, witchcraft, demonic worship, lustful, worldly sin.
We know through God's scriptures what is evil and unholy, what is unrighteousness, that we should not take part in by watching. God says that if we view sin, watch sin that this is taking part in that sin, doing the same sin.
Yes, God says that watching sin is committing the sin you are watching.
Did God know about television when He wrote these scriptures? Yes, He sure did, God knows everything. God knows everything that happened in the past, God knows everything that happens today in the present, and God knows everything that will happen in the future. That's omnipotent, unlimited, and that's who God is, our God is omnipotent.
The word of God reads that all sin, any sin is unrighteousness. A little sin is still sin, sin is sin.
So how can we live righteously? It is simple, abide in Christ, focus on God. God says that if we submit ourselves to HIM, resist the devil that the devil will depart from us. All we need to do is resist the devil and God will do the rest. Being tempted is not the sin, yielding to the temptation is sin. God promises that if we submit ourselves to God and resist the devil, God promises that the devil will flee from us.
God is greater than the devil. The devil didn't cast God out of Heaven, no, God cast the devil and his followers out of Heaven.
We know for a fact that God is greater than the devil, and as believer we are of God, if we abide in God, God promises to abide in us, and greater is God in us than he that is in the world.
Because of Christ Jesus, we are able to overcome sin and death. By the grace of God through faith in God, we are saved from sin and death.
As the children of the Most High God we are to live sinless, we are to live righteously like our Father, like our Lord Jesus Christ.
You may say, 'that's impossible, no one can live without sin', but that's NOT what God says.
As believers of Christ Jesus, we are kept by God away from sin. When we live in obedience toward God, the devil can't touch us!
God is able to keep His own from sin.
God of Truth and without sin
Truth is very rare and hard to find in the world today.
Everyone doesn't lie. Who lies? The devil and the devil's children. People who do NOT follow the will of God.
The children of God are to be separate from the world, we are not to follow the ways of the world, we are to follow the ways of Christ.
One way to follow Christ is to obey God's commandments, one of which is NOT TO LIE.
When we do NOT live in truth, do not abide in truth, we separate ourselves from God. God will never leave us, but we can leave God. God will never desert us or abandon us, but we can abandon God. God will not force us to love Him. God will not force us to obey Him.
Because God is truth, every lie that we tell separates us from God.
Telling a lie is obeying the devil, NOT God. Lying is a choice.
When we choose to lie, instead of telling the truth, we decide NOT to obey God, and we decide to obey the devil.
When we choose to lie, instead of telling the truth, we choose to serve the devil, instead of serving God.
When we choose to lie, instead of telling the truth, we are willfully committing sin against God.
When we choose to lie, we know we are breaking one of God's commandments, but we choose to lie anyway, in spite of what God commands.
When we choose to lie, instead of telling the truth, we choose to stand with satan, instead of standing with Christ Jesus.
Abiding in truth is standing with Christ.
There is no such thing as a 'little lie' with God. God sees all lies the same, all lies are sin. A 'little sin' is still sin in the eyes of God.
You may say, "but I tell the truth most of the time, so it is okay". That's NOT what God says in His word.
Truth is of utmost importance to God, and it should be most important to us also. Truth is never casual with God. Truth and telling the truth is an extremely serious matter with God.
God sacrificed His only begotten Son, so the world could have the truth given to them. This was the ultimate sacrifice given by God for us.
We should never forget the price that was paid so that we could have the truth.
When we are tempted to lie, we should remember the sacrifice Jesus made for us on the cross, the humiliation, the pain, the sorrow, the blood that He shed for us, so that we could have the truth.
Jesus is the truth. As a child of God, as a follower of Christ, we should continually abide in the truth all the days of our lives. We should have nothing to do with lies, because Jesus, the truth, lives and dwells within us.
There is no excuse, no reason that can validate any lie, but there is a extremely good reason why we should tell the truth, and that reason is Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour, our God.
As the children of God we should always live in truth, because Jesus is the truth.
When we fell the urge to lie about something, we must remember we are the temple of God, Christ dwells in us, and He is the truth.
I cannot follow Christ, walk with Jesus, live with God, if my life is full of lies. I must follow truth, walk in truth, and live in truth.
No lie is worth the price that my Lord and Saviour paid for the truth.
So why do we lie? Since the beginning of time, in the Garden of Eden, satan has deceived people to believe a lie, tell a lie, and live a lie, to leave the truth, and to leave God.
We lie because we are influenced by satan.
The children of God should only be influenced by Jesus.
By deceiving us to tell a lie, satan separates us from God. The devil hates all humankind and his goal is to separate us from God and destroy all who love the only true God.
With a loving God, a tender merciful caring Lord and Saviour that we have, how can we not tell the truth in everything we do and say.
It is better, if we cannot say the truth, to say nothing at all.
We must pray and ask God to lead us in truth.
We must choose to walk in the truth, we must choose the way of truth.
Are the words of God written on your heart? Has the Spirit of God written on the fleshly tables of your heart?
