Letter 6: What is God like?

“He is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see, to whom be honour and everlasting power. Amen” (1 Timothy 6:16).


“Holy, holy, holy, [is the] Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!” (Revelation 4:8).


About what God expects from us:


“What does the Lord your God require of you, but to fear the Lord your God, to walk in all His ways and to love Him, to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, and to keep the commandments of the Lord and His statutes which I command you today for your good” (Deuteronomy 10:12-13).


About God’s view of mankind:


“They have turned their back to Me, and not their face. But in the time of their trouble they will say, ‘Arise and save us’” (Jeremiah 2:27).


About God’s efforts to draw us to Himself:


“Oh, that you had heeded My commandments! Then your peace would have been like a river, and your righteousness like the waves of the sea” (Isaiah 48:18).


“I will not cause My anger to fall on you, for I am merciful,’ says the Lord; ‘I will not remain angry forever. Only acknowledge your iniquity, that you have transgressed against the Lord your God, . . . and you have not obeyed My voice,’ says the Lord” (Jeremiah 3:12 – 13).
