Some facts about God...5/9/16

* God is Good, Just, Righteous and bound by His being-ness to be this way:

If this were to change, the entire universe would collapse, conceptually and physically. It is held together and functions orderly, based on this constant. He has no beginning and no end. God is that constant. He is the glue, if He were to become wishy washy it would all fall apart. He is unfailing, incapable or error.

Psalm 90:2
2 Before the mountains were born
Or You gave birth to the earth and the world,
Even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God.
Psalm 116:5 Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful.
James 1:17)  Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
*He is perfect and pure. Omniscient and all knowing:

God originally created a perfect, happy, and sinless environment. With the intention of having everything exactly as we complain and wish it were now. It is not that way, NOT because of anything that He did and not because of anything that He didn't do.
God gifted us with Free will (if it were not this way, God could and would be held accountable as being a maniacal monster) Giving us FREE will, allows for CAUSATION to occur. Not that it has to or should have BUT it DID occur. He is Gentle, Kind and Loving. He is a gentleman and never forces us to love Him, to trust Him or to believe in Him.

Psalm 18: 30As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him.
Isaiah 46:9
I am God, and there is none like me,
declaring the end from the beginning
and from ancient times things not yet done.
Matthew 10:30
But even the hairs of your head are all numbered.
There is a time for everything, Everything in this world is appointed a season.

Everything Has Its Time

3 To everything there is a season,
A time for every purpose under heaven:
A time to be born,
    And a time to die;
A time to plant,
    And a time to pluck what is planted;
A time to kill,
    And a time to heal;
A time to break down,
    And a time to build up;
A time to weep,
    And a time to laugh;
A time to mourn,
    And a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones,
    And a time to gather stones;
A time to embrace,
    And a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to gain,
    And a time to lose;
A time to keep,
    And a time to throw away;
A time to tear,
    And a time to sew;
A time to keep silence,
    And a time to speak;
A time to love,
    And a time to hate;
A time of war,
    And a time of peace.

God sends the rain and sun on the Just and the unjust alike. He doesn't interfere with the innocent injustice anymore than the wretched, to gain or acquire advancement. A certain amount of impartiality is necessary for the FREE will system of life to function. Although God can and is moved to righteous anger at times. He sends warnings and has at times over the millennium had to administer punishments in a broad sense (seldom directed at individuality). He is also moved to mercy and miracle when the situation allows for it and has conceded and turned wrath away for the sake of individuals.

Matthew 5:45(KJV)45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

 Jonah 3  When God saw what they did, how they turned from their evil way, God relented of the disaster that he had said he would do to them, and he did not do it” (v. 10).
Miracles are the domain of Gods authority and power, mostly performed by Him but any and all are issued and granted by Him through us, when He allows for it: (John 5:19)

The very moment of conception is knowledge that only God has awareness of. It is by His hand that this miracle takes place.
God is author and deliverer of our souls: 
Knowing the beginning from the end, when all things come into existence and whence all things cease.

Job 14:5

Since his days are determined,
The number of his months is with You;
You have appointed his limits, so that he cannot pass.
God is all sustaining:

Every aspect of this world, our lives, the elements, the laws of nature and every form therein that supports our existence was induced by Him and is ordered and supported by Him, in continuation of His promise and perfection.

Psalm 135:6-7 
Whatever the LORD pleases, He does, In heaven and in earth, in the seas and in all deeps. He causes the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth; Who makes lightnings for the rain, Who brings forth the wind from His treasuries.
Psalm 145:16-17
You open Your hand And satisfy the desire of every living thing. The LORD is righteous in all His ways And kind in all His deeds.
Matthew 10:29-30
"Are not two sparrows sold for a cent? And yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. "But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
Colossians 1:17He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.

God Loves us desperately, wholly and completely:

God suffers our pain even when He has to allow it. The very same way, a parent suffers for their children. Regardless of whether the pain was self induced, situationally induced or sinfully induced. 

 How great is the love the Father has lavished on us that we should be called children of God!” ~1 John 3:1

(Isaiah 63:9 NLT) God hurts when we hurt. Remember Jesus weeping when He saw Lazarus’ family grieving? (John 11:35) The Bible clearly states that the Lord sympathizes with our weaknesses. (Hebrews 4:15) But He doesn’t stop there. As Isaiah says, He personally rescues us, lifts us up, and even carries us in times of hardship and pain.
(excerpt from: 
There is a difference between interfering and intervening:

God can not break His own laws, therefore it can be 100% trusted that if a way is possible, He will intervene when He can, but the purpose and the reason must not interfere with the overall plan. (((breaking the rules to accommodate personal desire will never occur))) God maintains this integrity and it's that same authority by which Miracles can and do occur. They are mercies, gifts of His omniscience BUT are not entitlements. Sometimes we find out why certain things had to happen the way they do and sometimes we won't find out until the final curtain call. Rest assured though, there is a reason and purpose far superior than any segregated personal experience or limited viewpoint we might hold.
we know in part” (1 Cor. 13:12)
Gal. 3:24, "Therefore the Law has become our tutor to lead us to Christ, that we may be justified by faith." 

God supplies all things sufficient for our survival, welfare and salvation:

 TRULY the first injustice was done to Him & by the world's standards of accountability, all of mankind stands guilty. Instead of seeking justice and vengeance on His creation, He took Mercy and devised a way where that price, that justice could be rectified, compensated, satiated and satisfied. Again, not only was this Love and Mercy on His part but He did so, by turning His wrath on Himself.  Essentially, He found a way where WE could be cleansed, restored and returned to Him, without stain of sin. He did for us what any parent would do.  Ask any loving parent, they would gladly, willingly, take the suffering or consequence to spare their child. That's what God did for us! He suffered the pain, the only way He could, by becoming a human man and sacrificing Himself (in a fleshly way) to repay the sin debt for the whole entire world. Whats more, He freely, willingly did so for even the ones (in advance) that He already knew would reject Him. Their rejection of Him does not invalidate His sacrifice nor does it render ineffective, the salvation gained for the many. Those that will not choose Him are then guilty of the original sin(s) as well as having snubbed salvation and eternal life with Christ. This is one of Gods greatest wounds, no one could ever imagine the pain that this inflicts upon God.  No one will ever be sent away from God for eternity by accident, it will only be by choice, their choice. This is the only way a just, fair and omniscient God can conduct that whole encounter. He gives multiple chances, opportunities for repentance and salvation but He will not force, nor can anyone in that state of evil reprobate sin ever co-habitate with a sinless Triune and just God. 

 “God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).
Have you ever gotten mad at Mom and Dad for saying no or for enforcing a rule? Many have uttered the words "I hate you" to that parent. The truth is, God knows that He is our only real and true friend, our only advocate. He created us, loves us and wants ONLY everything that is best for us. He tolerates his creation acting out, just as a parent might feel when their very own child attempts to incite them, with bitter comments or actions. A parents job is to do what is right, not what is popular. God truly doesn't always get the respect that He deserves but that doesn't change His deservedness.
In summation:
“God is love” (I Jn 4:16).  “God is spirit…” (Jn. 4:24). “The Lord our God is holy” (Ps. 99:9).
“The Lord is one” (Deut. 6:4). “God … knows everything” (1 Jn. 3:20). “God is just” (2 Thess. 1:6).   “God is not unjust” (Heb. 6:10).
In God’s nature “there is no change or shadow of alteration” (James 1:17). “God is not a God of disorder but of peace” (1 Cor. 14:33).
“It is impossible for God to lie” (Heb. 6:18).  See also Titus 1:2.
“God cannot be tempted by evil” (Js. 1:12).
“If we are faithless, [God] remains faithful — for he cannot deny himself” (2 Tim. 2:13).
When we don't understand something, its easy to get the wrong ideas. Inaccurate assumptions only serve division, anger, ignorance. To truly know God, we find peace, security and love, sufficient enough to help us through any of life's turmoils. God is a safe harbor, we need only draw close to Him!
