What Is God?

WHAT IS GOD?

What is God? (With respect)
On purpose I have not asked “who is God?” Because God is manifest in all things, without exception! All things in all the universes that exist and not only the one’s we know of. God therefore is manifest in all things physical (things that we can touch, see, smell or even imagine) God is manifest also in the spiritual (all the things that cannot easily be identified like physical things) such as creation, ideas and thoughts! God in his creation created only one law it is law of nature and is not optional, every thing that exists conforms to Gods law! Everything that has existed, everything that exists and everything that will ever exist is subject to Gods Law (the law of nature) God made no mistakes and has no exceptions! God has no wants! Since god is everything he requires no thing. God created everything, everything that exists so there is no such thing as good or bad, those are applied by man according to our Judgment! God therefore is all things! God isThe beginning and the end of everything.

I recently read another explanation of God that seems true to me and may be better than my explanation of God!

“God is pure energy!” We are pure energy:
If you look through a microscope into your skin, you will see cells, within the cells you see molecules, within the molecules you see the atoms, within the atoms you see the protons and neutrons and within the deepest levels of it all you see energy. Within the deepest levels of everything...you see energy. Everything is made up of the same thing.....everything is the same thing....expressed differently through different variants. (We are created in the image and likeness of God)

So to apply a human quality to God is absurd! God does not choose, want, know or love! He is all things there is nothing to want, he is all knowledge that ever was and he is all love that will ever exist! Gods love will therefore be equal for a sinner or a priest! God has no preferences! God does not need our love, but we need his! (Similar for all human traits.)

Many who believe in God think of him as a force, not as a person. In certain cultures, for example, gods have been identified with the forces of nature. Some who have examined evidence gathered through scientific research into the structure of the universe and the nature of life on earth have concluded that there has to be a First Cause. Nevertheless, they hesitate to attach a personality to this Cause.<br />
<br />
Yet, does not the complexity of creation indicate that the First Cause must have had great intelligence? Intelligence requires a mind. The great mind responsible for all creation belongs to the person of God. Yes, God has a body, not a physical one like ours, but a spiritual body. "If there is a physical body," says the Bible, "there is also a spiritual one." (1 Corinthians 15:44) Explaining the nature of God, the Bible clearly states: "God is a Spirit." (John 4:24) A spirit has a form of life that differs greatly from ours, and it is invisible to human eyes. (John 1:18) There are invisible spirit creatures as well. They are angels —"the sons of the true God." —Job 1:6; 2:1.<br />
<br />
Since God is an uncreated person with a spiritual body, he logically has a place of residence. Referring to the spirit realm, the Bible tells us that the heavens are God's "established place of dwelling." (1 Kings 8:43) Also, the Bible writer Paul states: 'Christ entered into heaven itself to appear before the person of God for us.' —Hebrews 9:24.<br />
<br />
The word "spirit" is also used in the Bible in another sense. Addressing God in prayer, the psalmist said: "If you send forth your spirit, they are created." (Psalm 104:30) This spirit is not God himself but a force that God sends forth, or uses, to accomplish whatever he wishes. By means of it, God created the physical heavens, the earth, and all living things. (Genesis 1:2; Psalm 33:6) His spirit is called holy spirit. God used his holy spirit to inspire the men who wrote the Bible. (2 Peter 1:20, 21) Hence, the holy spirit is the invisible active force that God uses to fulfill his purposes.<br />
<br />
The Bible writer Agur asked: "Who has gathered the wind in the hollow of both hands? Who has wrapped up the waters in a mantle? Who has made all the ends of the earth to rise? What is his name and what the name of his son?" (Proverbs 30:4) In effect, Agur was asking, 'Do you know the name or family line of any man who has done these things?' Only God has the power to control natural forces. While the creation provides powerful proof that God exists, it is silent about the name of God. In fact, we could never know God's name unless God himself revealed it to us. And he has. "I am Jehovah," says the Creator, "that is my name." —Isaiah 42:8.<br />
<br />
God's unique name, Jehovah, occurs nearly 7,000 times in the Hebrew sc<x>riptures alone. Jesus Christ made that name known to others and praised it before them. (John 17:6, 26) That name is found in the last book of the Bible as a part of the ex<x>pression "Hallelujah," meaning "praise Jah." And "Jah" is the shortened form of "Jehovah." (Revelation 19:1-6, footnote) Yet, many modern Bibles seldom use that name. They often use the word "LORD" or "GOD," written in all capital letters to set it apart from the common titles "Lord" and "God." Some scholars suggest that the divine name may have been pronounced Yahweh.<br />
<br />
Why such differing views about the name of the greatest Personage in the universe? The problem began centuries ago when the Jews superstitiously ceased to pronounce the divine name and started to substitute the Hebrew word for "Sovereign Lord" whenever they came to the divine name as they read the sc<x>riptures. Since Biblical Hebrew was written without vowels, there is no way to know precisely how Moses, David, and others of ancient times pronounced the letters that make up the divine name. However, the English pronunciation, Jehovah, has been in use for centuries, and its equivalent in many languages is widely accepted today. —Exodus 6:3; Isaiah 26:4, King James Version.<br />
<br />
Though there is uncertainty about how God's name was pronounced in ancient Hebrew, its meaning is not a complete mystery. His name means "He Causes to Become." Jehovah God thereby identifies himself as the Great Purposer. He always causes his purposes and promises to become reality. Only the true God, who has the power to do this, can rightfully bear that name. —Isaiah 55:11.<br />
<br />
Unquestionably, the name Jehovah serves to distinguish Almighty God from all other gods. That is why that name appears so often in the Bible. While many translations fail to use the divine name, Psalm 83:18 clearly states: "You, whose name is Jehovah, you alone are the Most High over all the earth." During his ministry, Jesus Christ taught his followers: "You must pray, then, this way: 'Our Father in the heavens, let your name be sanctified.'" (Matthew 6:9) We should, then, use God's name when we pray, speak of him, and praise him before others.<br />
<br />
In order to love God and give him the exclusive devotion that he deserves, we need to know him as he truly is. How can we get to know God better? "His invisible qualities are clearly seen from the world's creation onward," says the Bible, "because they are perceived by the things made, even his eternal power and Godship." (Romans 1:20) One way to get to know God better is by observing and reflecting appreciatively on what he has created.<br />
<br />
The creation, however, does not tell us all we need to know about God. For instance, to understand that he is a real spirit Person with a unique name, we need to look into the Bible. Studying the Bible is, in fact, the best way to come to know God better. In the sc<x>riptures, Jehovah tells us much more about the kind of God he is. He also reveals his purposes to us and educates us in his ways. (Amos 3:7; 2 Timothy 3:16, 17) How glad we can be that God wants us to "come to an accurate knowledge of truth" so that we can benefit from his loving provisions! (1 Timothy 2:4) Let us, then, make every effort to learn all we can about Jehovah.<br />

Love your post. Would change only one thing. You said that God (All-That-Is) does not need our love, but we need his. I would say that we need OURS. When we love the self, we love All-That-Is because we see that we are ONE WITH All-That-Is.<br />
<br />
Science is finally proving the "one-with" element true. Quantum physics began delving into research of what is now being called the Unified Field (of consciousness) and it further pushed into the study of consciousness itself. It is quite amazing what the human mind is capable of doing. We are POWERFUL beings in our own right (individually as well as when joined together in purpose). To be understood, I sometimes say that I am the god of my reality and you are the god of yours and we are the god of ours, but more and more I find the word god (whether capitalized or not) distasteful and misleading.<br />
<br />
I certainly do not need god's love. I am god's love. This means that I only need to remember that to tap into my power.

I have so much to learn! thank you for reading and commenting!

I am continuing sharing my experience with all the world! there is no thing wrong in the universe except the way you think of it!

please keep contact i still have a lot to learn, I am A student, not a teacher! I learn from life everyday! my truth is my experience!

i don't easily trust religion or so called experts They speak with forked tongues!

I test everything to law of nature! Walk on water! never !
virgin birth, archaic teenage excuse; or something; but don't tell me it's an article of faith!
with love!

Totally agree with your views and observations
