Time only has meaning to finite existences, with God there is no time, his relationship with us, it is in the context of time, he does have all the emotions towards man, as if he was limited by time in some repect, however, God has no beginning, finite beings have, therefore, time is only assigned or ascribed to finite existences. With the finite we understand time and succession, however with the "Infinite" one period of duration, he is "Eternal" we have no understanding of the "Eternal" or "Infinite", so God relates to us in a manner so we can understand him, or his words and thoughts and ways are meaningless.

God is "All-Knowing"---By God's "Omniscience" the foreseen repentance, faith, and sanctification, and perseverance, are known, this is what I meant by: " his election is predicated on his "Fore-Knowledge" of obedience and moral-behavior"---" Also you have a moral-certainty that is conditional, it is contingent on moral-choice, and moral-action. All moral-action, past, present and future, is an object, of God's Fore-Knowledge, he is omniscience, His election is contingent on faithfulness, that is an object of fore-knowledge"--- "God knows with absolute moral-certainty, who would or wouldn't voluntary be saved, by his own omniscience.

Most of the answers posted here (Eternal, Infinite , Almighty, etc.) while true, seem to be the answer to "What" God is rather than "Who" God is.

The name that the God of the bible gave himself (and that is recorded some 6800 times in the original Hebrew) is YHWH. It is commonly translated (into English) as Jehovah. Some prefer, Yehowah or Yaweh. That is "Who" he is.

God is Eternal, Infinite , Almighty, Just, Immutable, Wise, Perfect, and Infinitly Moral, He never grows older, His Love is Perfect. He is a cause of everthing to exist, without a cause, nothing caused God to be, He is Eternal.

(Deu 4:24) (Heb 12:29)
God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God.
(Deu 4:31) God is a merciful God
(Deu 6:15 God is a jealous God among you.
(Psa 62:8) God is a refuge for us. Selah.
(Psa 84:11) God is a sun and shield
(Dan 2:47) God is a God of gods, and a Lord of kings, and a revealer of secrets
(Joh 4:24) God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
Above all God is your Father.
Know he love you more then you love yourself.
Know he will defend you always.
Know he will not let you die without him!

And then the time comes call him!
Sooner or later you will!

Whatever you need him to be. He can be your mother, father, sister, brother, friend. he is there in the midnight hour, when he pour out our tears. he surely is an awesome God.
---Rebecca_D on 11/16/08

God is Abba Father, Mighty Counsellor, God is Spirit. God is Love. God is our Father. God is our Redeemer. God is the supreme being that has always existed who is worthy to be worshipped because He is perfect in all Hiw ways and He is our loving Father, our best friend, our strength, our Joy, our Peace, "For He Himself is our Peace." He is everything we need Him to be and then some.

1/GOD is HE and SHE, and certainly NOT he only or she only. GOD is IT (he and she). GOD is the SOURCE OF ALL SOURCES: the ESSENCE of all things seen and unseen. GOD is the circle, having neither beginning nor end! God manifests in TRIUNE (3s), except the Christian trinity confused the trinity symbolism of old. In mathematically term, GOD = 0 (zero). Zero (0) is the SOURCE or ESSENCE. Zero is THE ONE number that cannot be divided any further! It is the alpha and omega, like the circle.

2/People have given this ESSENCE or SOURCE many names throughout history and have fought WARS over their particular name, e.g., Osiris, Ptah, Amoun/Amen, Ra, AMEN-RA (the word Christians use at the end of prayers, Amen, is derived from this God), Aten (connected to Moses), Elohim/Yahweh/Jahovah, Buddha, Krishna/CHRISHNA (notice the closeness with the word Christ), Brahman, Brahma (with Vishnu & Shiva = trinity), Mithra, Romes SUN GODS, GOD (Father, Son and the Holy Ghost), Allah, Jah (Rastafarians), etc.
---I_AM_I on 10/23/06

3/GOD is Spirit. John 4:24. God is UNCONDITIONAL LOVE: Mark 12:29-31, LOVE God with your heart, soul, mind, and strength, and LOVE your neighbor as yourself. See also 1 Cor. 13. Who does not love herself or himself? Who does not want to be treated with respect and dignity? Who wants to be discriminated against based on sex, race, ethnicity, religion, language, etc. If you are a sexist, do you LOVE your neighbor? If you are a racist, do you LOVE your neighbor? LOVE = universal language of all Gods people!

4/ We cannot separate God from the terrible things that we do. We cannot separate God from the terrible things that we THINK!!!!! We cannot do terrible things to each other and then blame a so-called devil, Satan, Lucifer, or whatever name you concoct to pass the responsibility of your action s or THOUGHTS onto. Yes, we are held accountable for our THOUGHTS! Sometimes the thoughts are even worse than the action(s). Jesus loved everyone, especially the poor and downtrodden!
---I_AM_I on 10/23/06

5/ cont. Didnt Jesus say the LEAST you do to one of his brethrens, you do onto him. Where is the brotherly and sisterly love? Jesus was the embodiment (manifestation) of LOVE when he walked this earth. Can you be a Christian if you do not have love in your heart?
