THIS ONE THING IS TRUE OF GOD



If anything is true about God; it is an attribute or whatever God has in any way revealed as being true of Himself. And whatever is true about God is a likely answer to the interrogative questions about God; what is God like?, what Kind of God is He?, what is His nature? Etc.

Interestingly, Paul the Apostle testifies about God saying; “God dwells in Unapproachable light”1 Timothy 6:16. If God dwells in unapproachable light how then can we know the things that are true about Him?, How then do we get to know the answers to our various questions?.         

To run into error (conceiving God in human term) would it be on our part, if we, with a cautious reasoning and theological or dogmatic intelligence try to look beyond the “cloud of unknowing” so as to provide answers to our questions about God. The cloud of unknowing; the realm beyond which human intelligence cannot ascend.

Ascending the cloud of unknowing, even though in part shall we see, I would suggest;
Ø Through the eyes of faith, Hebrew 11:3 “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.”
Ø Utmost dependence on the Word of  Truth: Numbers 24:16 The utterance of him who hears the words of God, And has the knowledge of the Most High, Who sees the vision of the Almighty, Who falls down, with eyes wide open:
Ø And through the revealing power of the Holy Spirit can the hidden things about God be revealed. 1 Corinthians 2:11“…even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.”  

But one thing is ascending by grace; another thing is describing the untold. For even the language of men and that of the angels would at a point cease in describing the God behind the unapproachable light. For this I see no reason why human will never conclude that God is unapproachable, indescribable, incomprehensible, and other various mysterious words like self-existing, self-revealing, self-causing, self-sufficient, immutable, eternal God etc. saying otherwise by reasons of intelligence will bring God to the level of man. God forbid.

The experience of Moses on the mountain of Sinai, is a vivid imagery of the foregoing thought; for when Moses ascend beyond the cloud, he saw nothing but the glory of God shining brightly, an unapproachable light that no man may see and live. “For no man can see God and live”. But God allowing Moses the privilege, revealed nothing else to him but His glory. The latter part of the story was that Moses himself was filled with the brightly shining light of Gods glory that even the children of Israel cannot behold the face of Moses without a veil.

THE JOY OF POSSESSING NOTHING 

For the most of the mysterious words above, like incomprehensible, Uncontainable, limitless, infinite, indescribable, and a host of others, we may have no words to explain (not that we could even try at all) than to bow down our heads in deep reference and say O Lord, Thou Knowest”, for they belongs to the deep and mysterious profound of God’s Omniscience.

O LORD, of what importance is the human race, that you should notice them? Of what importance is mankind, that you should be concerned about them? Psalm 144:3

Even now, have we seen a part that embodies so many a quality that words cannot express, though in part still have we come to see and know, for the perfection is coming says the Holy Scripture 1Corinthians 13:9-10.

The blessed news is that, God, understanding the inadequate ability of man to comprehend the nature and sovereignty of Him, has in a sovereign condescension set Himself to work by and in and through His Obedient Children. An enablement that comes from the death of His first begotten son on the cross of Calvary.

If God Could do that:
Then, without doubt, the very attribute that is true of God and that has come to the mind and understanding of man is the ETERNAL LOVE OF GOD.

“For God so love the world that He gave us His only Begotten son…”

Recognizing and embracing the love of God requires; hearing the Word, Believing (By Faith) and by the revelation of the Holy Spirit. For no man can come to the knowledge of God except through the revelation of the Holy Spirit.

Having the knowledge of this eternal truth, Apostle John cannot but testify saying God is Love” 1John 4:8.

The love of God was manifested to us and we did see it in differs ways;
He gave up His son for our redemption and Salvation
He blessed us with many Spiritual Gifts
He decided never to condemn and judge us
In Him we found unlimited Grace that is greater than our sins. 
He made us partakers of divine nature. 
He called us His children and heir to the throne of Grace. Etc. 


The eternal love of God is the root of many qualities like Kindness, goodness, patience, protection, guidance, the happiness, joy faithfulness of God etc. that we see on daily basis. Even yet this qualities cannot be measured, nor their depth fathom; for to measure them and fathom them simply is to deny the Immutability, limitlessness, and the infiniteness etc. of God.

Conclusively, one of such attribute that true and has come to the knowledge of man that can easily tell us about the Nature, kind, person of God is love. This is therefore a call to believers to love just as God has loved us, for by loving we can extend the knowledge of God unto others.

1 John 4:21  And the commandment we have from him is this: that the one who loves God should love his fellow Christian too.

O God, Thee we Bless, for even now we can say we know you (in part though, yet satisfying), for thy love unconditional that though has revealed, towering upon us every day. To thee alone belong all the Glory. Help us to love as you have loved, help O Lord, we to love as you have commanded, for in Christ Mighty name we pray. Amen

See this:
Becoming a child of God is quite easy, that if you believe in your heart the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead you will be saved. He knocks at the door or your heart, confess Him today, tomorrow might be too late.
