How Great is Our God! 8. Is Anything Too Hard for God?

The Doctrine of God's Omnipotence Jeremiah 32: 17 - 22 This is the 3rd message on the “omni” attributes of God. These attributes are difficult to grasp because they describe truths about God that have no comparison in human experience. We are limited as to place, power and personal knowledge. God is not. We say that God is omniscient (all-knowing), omnipresent (present everywhere), and omnipotent (all-powerful). We may share in some way aspects of God’s character such as mercy, grace, anger, justice, and holiness. Others are unique to God - the “omni” attributes fall into this category. 1. The Definition Omnipotence means “all-powerful” and refers to the fact that God’s power is infinite

How Great is Our God! 7. Here, There and Everywhere

The Doctrine of God's Omnipresence Psalm 139: 7 - 12 A young boy and his mother - serious discussion over lunch. “Where is God?” he asks. “He’s in heaven,” mother replies. “Does He live there?” “Yes.” “Where’s Jesus?” “He’s in your heart.” “But I thought Jesus and God were the same Person.” “They are.” “How can he be in heaven and in my heart at the same time?” “It’s hard to explain.” Short pause. “Where does the Holy Spirit live?” Another pause. “I think it’s time to go and lie down.” So we are introduced to one of the more difficult doctrines of the Bible—the doctrine of God’s omnipresence. “Where is God?” This is a very important question. The seeker wants to know … and so does the sce

His eye is upon us, His arm over us, His ear open to our prayer—His grace sufficient, His promise unchangeable.” John Newton. No doctrine arouses quite as much passion as the doctrine of predestination and its relationship to human free will. If God knows all things, and he “ordains whatever comes to pass,” then are we not reduced to the level of robots? How can we have free will if God has already decided everything in advance? On the other hand, if we truly have free will, how can it be said that God ordains all things? These are questions that have troubled thoughtful Christia

How Great is Our God! 5. The Invisible Hand

Coming to Grips With God’s Providence Psalm 115, Genesis 50:20 Do all things really work together for good? A man and a woman meet at Bible College, fall in love and get married. Called to the mission field, they serve the Lord in a remote stretch of the Amazon River in northeastern Peru. While on a routine flight back to their houseboat, the Peruvian Air Force mistakes them for drug smugglers and shoots their plane out of the sky. One bullet rips through the mother and into the head of their baby daughter who was sitting in her lap. Both are killed instantly. Why? Why? Why do these things happen? Why do they happen to good people, decent people, Christian people? 1. Providence Defined
