In the English language, we can use the word “simple” in various ways... The idea of God’s SIMPLICITY, on the other hand, has to do with His divine essence. It describes God as a simple being — Someone who is way beyond composition. He is not made up of parts or of a variety of substances. He is but one essence.
For others, to say that someone is spiritual is to suggest that he or she has a generic interest in religious or supernatural matters. However, to speak of SPIRITUALITY as an Attribute of God is to identify Him as a spirit — an immaterial, invisible, and infinite being that is fundamentally distinct from every material, visible, and finite creatures.
One of The Attributes of God that describes His being is INVISIBILITY. Being immaterial, He doesn’t have a physical form. He is not composed of any kind of material or substance perceivable by the bodily senses. God is invisible. His total essence, all of His being, will never be visible to us.
God’s immateriality, often stirs debate especially when influenced by facts and knowledge about science and philosophy. “If God is immaterial, what is He made of?” Well, to begin with, God is self-existent; therefore He was not made, He was not created. The divine essence is entirely spirit; and a spirit cannot be flesh, bone and blood.
Like a rock which remains sturdy and immovable despite the fluctuating state of the ocean that surrounds it, is our God who is IMMUTABLE while all creations are subject to change. God is perpetually the same. He cannot change in His nature and being, character and attributes, purpose and promises.
Immanence describes a God who is always at hand — actively and personally working through even the littlest details of the lives of His creations. Though transcendent in His being, He doesn’t just sit back on His throne in heaven and watch the universe that He has set in motion.
God is entirely unknowable in His transcendence but He has made it possible for us to know Him by the revelations He’s made about Himself. It is Him who puts in it our hearts to desire to seek Him; and He is pleased with even our tiniest efforts to make Him known.
To know that God is omnipresent is one thing; to feel His presence at all times is another. To say “Thank You, Lord!” during happy and ‘okay’ days is just right; to ask Him “Where were You?” during difficult times is not.
If the accuracy of the definition of ‘infinity’ is to be considered, it must be inarguable that there is actually nothing and no one in the universe that is infinite — nothing and no one except God.
Eternity is an attribute of God that refers to His timeless nature — having no beginning and no end; no past and no future. Unlike finite created beings such as us, He doesn’t experience succession of moments and events we call time.
Many still wonder, “Why would a self-sufficient God need to create mankind and the universe?” We may not know the real reason why but at least we can know that He didn’t need to.
