How do you imagine God , what is he?
Someone had the idea of God of paintings depicting such a good old man on a cloud . And someone synonymous with God , which he saw on the icon in the temple. But what God really ? Of course , the most accurate description would be that God , as He is revealed to us in His Word – the Bible.
First, the Bible says that God is Spirit .
The Bible describes the story of a woman who once asked Jesus about where to worship God :
” Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, but you say that the place where we must worship is in Jerusalem. Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me , the hour cometh , when neither in this mountain , nor in Jerusalem , worship the Father . The time will come , and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the kind of worshipers the Father seeks . God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and truth. ” (Bible, Ioan.4 :20-21 ,23-24)
“The Lord is the Spirit ; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty . ” (Bible, 2Cor.3 : 17)
God is immaterial , it has no any physical body. God is Spirit . It can not therefore be represented in some external form. And he does not expect any external human worship. For Him our internal matters , our heart, our spiritual nature .
“God made the world and everything in it, he, being Lord of heaven and earth , not in temples made with hands lives and not served by human hands , as though He needed anything, since He Himself gives to all life and breath and everything” . (Bible, Acts.17 : 24.25 )
