The God of the Bible—of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob—Who took on His own Image, a human in the flesh, as Jesus of Nazareth—this God is unique among all other gods. He is nothing like them.
Most mythologies depict gods who can be appeased through politics and trickery. They can be offended or angered when their scandals are exposed. These mythologies describe demigods, not anything like what the Bible refers to as “God”. Unlike Allah, Adonai—the Lord God, the God of the Bible—does not need to fight to destroy all of His enemies immediately. This is because God is above them all.
By being above every enemy, the need to hate and spit and fret and rage against every enemy in every corner of the universe and beyond simply does not exist. God’s existence goes beyond thought, light, and time. Whatever is true of quantum theory, God’s existence goes beyond metaphysical boundaries that even quantum mechanics cannot cross.
He created the very fabric of the fabric of the fabric of the idea of the fabric of both the physical universe and the time continuum. He is the Most High, there is none beside Him. No one can harm or overthrow Him. He cannot be fooled, caught, or ensnared. He is the origin, the single point to which all questions of origin lead back to.
This gives us confidence—that the Uncreaed God Most High loves us and knows everything about us, even the number of hairs on our heads. Our strengths, our weaknesses, our faults, our lessons to learn—He saw it all before we were born. We can’t impress Him with our achievement nor shock Him with our failure.
When Israel’s kings were evil, Isaiah saw God high and lifted up on His Throne. The God who summons the morning sun, who tells the breeze where to wait, and keeps the light of the moon in His pocket until the time of its fullness—that God is on your side, already fighting whatever battle you woke to this morning when the sun answered His wake up call. Lean on Him and lend a little stability to the people around you.
