God is infinite – He is self-existent without origin – attributes series

Today begins a  series of Bible studies on the attributes of God. The plan is to do one attribute every few days. Today we look at the fact that God is infinite. He is self-existent without origin. 

Col. 1:17 says “And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.” and Psalms 147:5 says of God “Great is our Lord, and abundant in power; his understanding is beyond measure” – Psalm 147:5

I will close my portion of this with a quote from the article being used for this series. (The link is at the end.)

In his article on Christianity.com, Dr. Adrian Rogers writes about the self-existence of God: “The name Jehovah is used some 6,800 times in the Bible. It is the personal covenant name of Israel’s God. In the King James Version of the Bible, it’s translated Lord God. Not only does it speak of God’s strength, but also it speaks of the sovereignty of God and the goodness of God. The root of this name means “self-existing,” one who never came into being, and one who always will be. When Moses asked God, “Who shall I tell Pharaoh has sent me?” God said, “I AM THAT I AM.” Jehovah or Yahweh is the most intensely sacred name to Jewish scribes and many will not even pronounce the name. When possible, they use another name.”

  1. Yes! Too big and splendid for our Human understanding to classify. When we encounter something, we tend to try to understand it by classifying it, putting it into a category with like things so we can compare, contrast, qualify and quantify.
    We cannot do that with God. We can worship Him with in awe and wonder, but we cannot fully grasp His glory. Psalm 113:5: ” Who is like the Lord our God, the One who sits enthroned on high”
