Part 1

the true God

revealed in His Word of the Bible

The name of God is in Hebrew

(From right to left, JHWH is read, the Hebrew language is a consonant language in which the vowels were spoken.Since the real pronunciation was lost, centuries ago it was helped by the insertion of the vowels of the Hebrew word for “Lord” and from this Jehovah came into being. “Yahweh” is used in the Jerusalem Bible, but scholars cannot prove that this was the correct pronunciation. Since the term “Jehova” has been in use for centuries, JZ have retained this version.

The People, the the Names wears. Jehovah is the Creator of all things, the great first cause; thus he is uncreated, without beginning (Rev 4:11).”His years are unexplored in number” (Hi 36:26). It is impossible to attribute an age to him, because there is no time from which to measure. Although timeless, he is rightly called “the old man on days”, since his existence goes back endlessly to the past (Da 7:9, 13). In the future, too, it is without end (Rev 10:6); he is imperishable, immortal. Therefore he is called the “King of Eternity” (1 Ti 1:17), for whom a thousand years are only like a night watch of a few hours (Ps 90:2, 4; Jer 10:10; Hab 1:12; Rev 15:3).

Despite his agelines, Jehovah is an excellent god of history, and he can be associated with very specific times, places, persons, and events.When he was with men, he acted according to a well-defined schedule (Gen 15:13, 16; 17:21; 2Gen 12:6-12; Gal 4:4). Because his eternal existence is undeniable and the most fundamental fact in the universe, he swore at his existence by saying, “As true as I live,” he has guaranteed the absolute reliability of his promises and prophecies (Jer 22:24; Ze 2:9; 4Mon 14:21, 28; Isa 49:18). People also swore at the fact that Jehovah exists (Ri8:19; Ru 3:13). Only the incomprehensible say, “There is no Jehovah” (Ps 14:1; 10:4).

Descriptions of its Present. Since he is a spirit whom man cannot see (Jn 4:24), any description of his appearance in the language of men can only approximate his incomparable glory (Isa 40:25: 26).Certain servants of God received inspired visions of His heavenly courts, but they did not really see their Creator (Jn 1:18). Their description of his presence gives you not only the impression of sublime dignity and awe-inspiring majesty, but also of balance, order, beauty and grace (Gen 24:9-11; Isa 6:1; Ethe 1:26-28; Since 7:9; Rev 4:1-3; see also Ps 96:4-6).

As you can see, these descriptions contain metaphors (figurative expressions) and comparisons, comparing the appearance of Jehovah with things known to people: with gemstones, the fire, a rainbow.It is even described as having certain human characteristics. Some scholars make a lot of fuss about expressions in the Bible that they call anthropomorphisms 鈥攅.g. God’s “eyes,” “ears” and “face” (1Pe 3:12), “arm” (Etime 20:33) and his “rights” (Gen 15:6) 鈥?but it is obvious that such expressions are so that people can understand the description. If Jehovah had let God record for us a description of himself in the language of the spiritual realm, it would be the same as presuming algebraic equations for the advanced to someone who only masters the basic arithmetic. to explain colors to a blind-born person (Hi 37:23, 24).

The so-called anthropomorphisms are therefore never to be taken literally, nor are other metaphorical terms referring to God, such as “sun”, “shield” or “FELS” (Ps 84:11; 5Gen 32:4, 31).Jehovah’s vision (Gen 16:13) is not dependent on rays of light, unlike that of men, and he can see even acts committed in total darkness (Ps 139:1, 7-12; Heb 4:13). He has the whole earth in his field of vision (Spr 15:3), and he does not need any special devices to see the embryo growing in the womb (Ps 139:15, 16). Nor is his hearing dependent on sound waves in an atmosphere, for he can even “hear” utterances that are produced without a voice in the human heart (Ps 19:14). Man has not even been able to measure the vast material universe, but the material heaven does not grasp or contain the dwelling place of God, how much less a house or a temple on the earth (1K枚 8:27; Ps 148:13). Through Moses, Jehovah explicitly warned the nation of Israel not to make an image of him, God, in the form of a man or any other creature (Gen 4:15-18). Thus, when Jesus spoke, according to Luke’s account, that he was cast out demons “by the finger of God,” he referred鈥?as The account of Matthew shows鈥?to “God’s Spirit” or effective power (Luke 11:20; Mat 12:28; See. 5 and 1Gen 1:2).

Personal Features in of the Creation visible. Certain facets of the personality of Jehovah were already visible through his works of creation before he created man (Rom 1:20).It is precisely the act of creation that reveals his love. Jehovah is not dependent on anyone, and he lacks nothing. Although he created hundreds of millions of spiritual sons, not e i n e r of them could contribute anything to his knowledge or supplement his personality with some desirable quality that he would not have possessed to a greater extent (Da 7:9, 10; Heb 12:22; Isa 40:13, 14; R枚 11:33, 34).

This does not mean, of course, that Jehovah has no joy in his creatures.Since man was created “in the image of God” (Gen 1:27), the joy that a human father has in his child鈥攅specially when he loves him and acts with wisdom鈥攔eflects the joy That Jehovah feels about his intelligent creatures who love him, serve him. and act wisely (Spr 27:11; Mat 3:17; 12:18). This joy does not arise from any material or external gain, but stems from the fact that he sees his creatures willingly abide by his just norms and standards, and express selflessness and generosity (1Ch 29:14-17; Ps 50:7-15; 147:10, 11; Heb 13:16). On the other hand, whoever takes a wrong course and despises Jehovah’s love, who shames God’s name and brings terrible suffering upon others, causes Jehovah to ‘hurt in his heart’ (Gen 6:5-8; Ps 78:36-41; Heb 10:38).

Jehovah also likes to use his power, whether in creation or elsewhere; always his works serve a specific purpose and spring from a good motive (Ps 135:3-6; Isa 46:10, 11; 55:10, 11).As a generous giver to ‘every good gift and perfect gift’, he is greatly pleased to reward his faithful sons and daughters with blessings (Jn 1:5, 17; Ps 35:27; 84:11, 12; 149:4). Although he is a god of cordiality and compassion, his happiness is certainly not dependent on his creatures, nor does he sacrifice just principles of sentimentality.

Jehovah also expressed love by granting his first-made Spirit Son the privilege of participating with him in all other works of creation, both spiritually and materially, and then generously ensuring that this became known, which was honor edify for his son (1Gen 1:26; Kol 1:15-17).So he did not fear a possible competition, for example because of a weakness, but rather showed complete confidence in the legitimacy of his own sovereignty (Gen 15:11) and in the loyalty and devotion of his son. He allows his sons of spirit relative freedom to perform their duties, and even occasionally allows them to express their views on how they would perform specific tasks (1K枚 22:19-22).

As the Apostle Paul emphasized, Jehovah’s invisible qualities also come to light in his material creation (Rom 1:19, 20).Its enormous power exceeds the power of the concept; Giant galaxies with billions of stars are only ‘the work of his fingers’ (Ps 8:1, 3, 4; 19:1), and the richness of the wisdom he has developed is so great that man’s knowledge of physical creation, even after millennia of busy research, is merely like a ” Whispers” are in comparison to the mighty Thunder (Hi 26:14; Ps 92:5; Pr 3:11). Jehovah’s creative activity with regard to planet Earth was characterized by expedient order, which followed a well-defined program (Gen 1:2-31), so that the Earth became what astronauts called in our 20th century a “jewel in space”. Was.

Dem People in Eden revealed. As a kind of person, did Jehovah reveal himself to his first children of men?The perfect Adam could certainly have agreed with the words that the Psalmist later said: “I will praise you because I am wonderfully made in a frightening way. Your works are marvellous, as my soul knows very well” (Ps 139:14). From the appearance of his own body 鈥攚hich, compared to that of other earthly creatures, was extraordinarily versatile鈥?to the things that surrounded him, man had every reason to pay reverence and respect to his Creator. Every bird, every mammal, every fish, every flower, every tree, every field, every forest, every hill, every valley, every river, and every river that man saw, imprinted on him the depth and extent of his Father’s wisdom, as well as the versatility of the personality of Jehovah, as they were in the great diversity of his creations (Gen 2:7-9; cf. Ps 104:8-24). All the senses of man 鈥?seeing, hearing, tasting, smelling and keys 鈥?made clear to his receptive sense what generous and caring Creator he had.

Adam’s intellectual needs, his need for exchange of ideas and communion, were not ignored either, for his father gave him a rational female counterpart (Gen 2:18-23).The couple of men could have sing like the Psalmist in the glory of Jehovah: “Joys to saturation are with your face; there is loveliness on your right” (Ps 16:8, 11). Since Adam and Eve had been shown so much love, they should surely have known that ‘God is love’, the source and the most exquisite example of love (1Jo 4:16, 19).

Most importantly, Jehovah God satisfied the spiritual needs of man.Adam’s father revealed himself to his human son, exchanged ideas with him, and gave him divine assignments of service, the obedient fulfillment of which constituted much of his worship (Gen 1:27-30; 2:15-17; cf. On 4:13).

A God with moral Standards and standards. Man soon became acquaint to Jehovah not only as a wise and free-giving Father, but also as a God with moral principles who adheres to established norms that determine which course of action is right and which is wrong.If, as indicated, Adam knew the account of creation, he also knew that Jehovah has divine standards, for the account of his works of creation states that Jehovah saw that ‘it was very good’ and thus corresponded to his perfect norm (Gen 1:3, 4, 12, 25, 31; cf. 5M 32:3, 4).

Without standards, there would be no way to decide or judge what is good and what is bad, or to determine and to see how accurate and excellent something is.In this respect, the following statements are revealing in the Encyclopedia Britannica (1959, Vol. 21, p. 306, 307):

“What man has achieved in this regard [in setting standards . . . is vanishingly little compared to standardization in nature.The position of the stars to each other, the planetary orbits, the immutable properties of conductivity, elongation, elasticity, hardness, permeability, refractive capacity, strength and viscosity of substances in nature . . . and the structure of the cells are just a few examples of the astonishing standardization in nature.”

In the same work, the importance of this standardization in material creation is shown when it is said: “Only with the help of standardization in nature is it possible . . . to identify and classify the many species of plants, fish, birds and mammals.Within these species, individuals are similar down to the smallest detail in terms of structure, function and habits that are their own. [Cf. Gen 1:11, 12, 21, 24, 25. If this standardization did not exist in the human body, doctors would not know whether a person has certain organs or where they are . . . In fact, without the norms in nature, there would be no organized society, no education and no doctors; each relies on fundamental, comparable similarities.”

Adam noted in the creations of Jehovah a great permanence: He observed the steady daily and night cycle, the water of the stream in Eden, which as a result of gravity is always flowing downwards, and countless other things that proved that the Creator of the earth has no God. of confusion, but a God of order (1 Gen 1:16-18; 2:10; Pr 1:5-7; 35, 36; 1Ko 14:33).Surely man saw it as a help to carry out the work entrusted to him (Gen 1:28; 2:15), for he could plan and work confidently, without tormenting uncertainty.
