God, Creator and Father

The Bible portrays God as the Creator of the heavens and the earth. He is "the King eternal, incorruptible, invisible.....to whom be honour and power everlasting" (1 Timothy 1:17). Yet by His Holy Spirit, the expression of His power, He controls the affairs of the world according to His ultimate purpose with mankind. Holiness and truth are His attributes; there can be no deceit or falsehood with Him, nor can He regard with indifference persistent human rebellion. Yet He describes Himself as a God "full of compassion and gracious, slow to anger and plenteous in mercy....forgiving iniquity, transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty" (Exodus 34:6,7, R.V.). This is the portrait of an Eternal Creator, a supremely moral Being, who is also the Father of those who seek Him according to His Word. And it is only in this Word - in the Bible - that man can learn of Him.
