Attributes of God

Attributes of God

Here are but a few of the many characteristics of God:

  1. God is eternal.  He has no beginning.  He has end.  He was, is, and will ever be. (Exodus 3:14, Psalms 90:2, Isaiah 40:28)
  2. God is transcendent.  He exists outside of time and space.  He is matchless, peerless, unrivaled, unparalleled, unequaled.  Who has ever given Him counsel?   On whom does He rely?  (Isaiah 55:8-9, Jeremiah 23:23-24)
  3. God is sovereign.  He is supremely powerful over all that was, is, and will ever be. No one can stay His hand.  No one can thwart His purpose.  (Isaiah 40:22-23, II Chronicles 20:6)
  4. God is holy.  He is pure, sinless, without blemish, perfect in every way.  (Isaiah 6:3, II Corinthians 5:21)
  5. God is omniscient.  There is nothing hidden from Him.  There is nothing He doesn’t know.  He cannot be taught.  He is the source of all knowledge.  (Psalms 139:1-6, Hebrews 4:13)
  6. God is omnipotent.  He is the source of all strength.  He defeats, and has defeated, all of His enemies.  (Numbers 319, Psalms 115:3)
  7. God is good.  He is good all the time.  Everything He does is beneficial and advantageous, desirable and pleasing.  (Psalms 119:68 and 34:8)
  8. God is gracious.  He bestows His unmerited favor on His creation.  (Titus 2:11, Ephesians 2:8)
  9. God is merciful.  He is generous beyond measure, magnanimous.  He is compassionate beyond understanding, benevolent.  He will forgive.  (Joel 2:12-14, Psalms 86:5)
  10. God is wrathful.  He will judge the earth and condemn those who have rebelled against Him to eternal damnation, eternal punishment.  He will avenge His holy name.  (Nahum 1:2, Romans 12:19)
