Omni= "all", science= "knowledge". God is all knowing, God knows all things! In Job 37:16, He is one Who is perfect in knowledge.

We can even speculate about the future and even make some pretty accurate guesses but none of us knows exactly what will happen tomorrow.

God is not and therefore -- His knowledge is superimposed over time.

We continue to learn as long as we live on this earth. God has never had to learn a thing!

Every thought, every motive, every event, and every action of every person who would ever live, God knew billions and billions of years before those thoughts ever existed.

Assured is the Hebrew verb ashash which means to show yourselves men of God, women of virtue, it means to have assurance and confidence.

To the believer who understands omniscience it is a very comforting attribute to understand.

Omniscience means that there is nothing in your life that could ever happen that God didn't know about billions and billions of years ago, you can afford to be at rest.

Knowing about it, and being perfect, He provided a perfect provision and perfect solution for every problem we would ever face.

Mat 10:29-30, “Are not two sparrows sold for a cent? And, yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your father’s knowledge knowing all about it,” verse 30 "but the very hairs of your head are numbered."

We may not understand the adversities and the sufferings which come into our lives, yet in the end we will discover that God knew all along exactly what we needed and what was best for us.

Joh 13:7, "What I'm doing you do not realize now, but you shall understand later on."

Rom 11:33, ”Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable are His ways?”

eu 29:29  “The secret things belong to the Lord our God but the things revealed Dbelong to us and our children forever.”

Every book in the Bible was written by a human author who understood what he was recording.

The Father is said to be omniscient and perfect in knowledge, JOB 37:16, Mat 6:8; Mat 10:29-30, Act 1:24.

JOB 37:16  "Do you know about the layers of the thick clouds, The wonders of one perfect in knowledge,

The Son knows all things Joh 18:4, Mat 9:44, Joh 2:25.

MAT 9:4   And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, "Why are you thinking evil in your hearts?

The Holy Spirit is even called the Spirit of wisdom and understanding with counsel and knowledge Isa 11:2.

The Spirit searches all the deep things of God in 1Co 2:10.

1Co 2:11 =  you will notice that God the Holy Spirit knows the thoughts of God the Father or the deep things of God.

Knowing these Divine attributes increases your personal love for God.

Jer 23:24, “Can a man hide himself in hiding places, so I do not see him? Declares the Lord. Do I not fill the heavens and the earth? Declares the Lord.”

God is everywhere present throughout the universe,  He is immanent and transcendent. Transcendent simply means that He exists apart from the universe.

This explains such phrases like 1Ki 8:27,” The heavens cannot contain Thee.”
Isa 66:1, "Heaven is My throne and the earth is My footstool."

 

God is both in the heavens and the earth simultaneously.
Deity cannot reduce itself to one place, therefore our Lord had to become true humanity.

 

When TLJC went to the cross, He did not bear our sins in His Divine essence but as 1Pe 2:24 says,” In His own body.”

 

It should be a sobering thought for the unbeliever to realize that he cannot escape the presence of God.

 

Pro 15:3  "The eyes of the Lord are in every place, watching the evil and the good.”

 

Omnipresence should be a sobering serious issue to the unbeliever, but for the believer it is very comforting to know, realize, and believe that God is always on your side; Rom 8:31-32.

Heb 13:5   For He Himself has said,  "I will never desert you nor will I ever forsake you."

 

The Father in 2Ch 2:6,” For the heaven and the highest heavens cannot contain Him.”

 

In Jer 23:23-24 the Father fills heaven and earth. The Son said in Mat 28:20 "I am with you always even to the end of the age.”

 

JER 23:23   "Am I a God who is near," declares the Lord, "And not a God far off?

 

JER 23:24 "Can a man hide himself in hiding places, So I do not see  him? declares the Lord. "Do I not fill the heavens and the earth?" declares the Lord.

TLJC said I will be in you and in My Father at the same time.

 

The Holy Spirit is ever present in Psa 139:7.

 

Omnipotence means all powerful and limitless in ability. He is called God Almighty as in Gen 17:1.

 

Nothing is too difficult for Him says Gen 18:14.

 

In Psa 24:8   He is the King of Glory, the Lord is strong and mighty, the Lord is mighty in battle.

 

Isa 40:26, Jer 27:4b-5, by His power or omnipotence He rules and upholds all things.

 

In 1Ch 29:11  both riches and honor come from Him and He does rule over all and in His hand is power and might, and it lies in His hand to make great, and to strengthen everyone.

 

Psa 66:7  says that He rules by His power or omnipotence forever.

 

As Heb 1:3 says He upholds all things by the Word of His power.

This power is used by God to keep the believer safe for Him forever in 1Pe 1:5.

 

God’s power is not limited at all; however, you must understand that all that happens is not from the power of God.

 

God has allowed both angels and mankind to possess volition, and both angels and mankind have used their volition in a negative way.

 

Mat 19:26, "With God all things are possible."

 

Job said after he went through more suffering than anyone alive "I know that you can do all things" in Job 42:1.

 

All three members of the Trinity possess omnipotence, God the Father in MAR 14:36, 1Pe 1:5.

 

Jesus Christ is said to control history and uphold all things by the Word of His power in Heb 1:3.

 

TLJC is the One Who uses His omnipotence to raise us from the dead in Phi 3:21.

 

By the use of His power, TLJC healed the sick and forgave their sin in Luk 5:24.

 

He raised the dead in Luk 7:22.

 

He imparts eternal life to those who believe in Joh 10:28.

 

God the H.S. is said to have all power and omnipotence in Rom  15:19.

 

The Holy Spirit is the One Who brings His power on the believer in the Church-age in Act 1:8.

 

Zec 4:6  “It’s  not by might not by power but by My Spirit says the Lord.”

 

Greater is He (God the Holy Spirit) Who is in you than he (Satan) who is in the world.

 

We can even speculate about the future and even make some pretty accurate guesses but none of us knows exactly what will happen tomorrow.

Deu 29:29  “The secret things belong to the Lord our God but the things revealed belong to us and our children forever.”

 

Remember every book in the Bible was written by a human author who understood what he was recording.

 

The Father is said to be omniscient and perfect in knowledge, JOB 37:16, Mat 6:8; Mat 10:29-30, Act 1:24.

 

JOB 37:16  "Do you know about the layers of the thick clouds, The wonders of one perfect in knowledge,

 

The Son knows all things Joh 18:4, Mat 9:44, Joh 2:25.

 

MAT 9:4   And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, "Why are you thinking evil in your hearts?

 

The Holy Spirit is even called the Spirit of wisdom and understanding with counsel and knowledge Isa 11:2.

 

Knowing these Divine attributes increases your personal love for God.

 

God is also omnipresence.

Jer 23:24, “Can a man hide himself in hiding places, so I do not see him? Declares the Lord. Do I not fill the heavens and the earth? Declares the Lord.”

 

God is everywhere present throughout the universe,  He is immanent and transcendent. Transcendent simply means that He exists apart from the universe.

 

1Ki 8:27,” The heavens cannot contain Thee.”
Isa 66:1, "Heaven is My throne and the earth is My footstool."
