Getting To Know God
His Name Is...
The Everlasting God - The Word Of God - The Greatness Of God - The Immutable God
But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden [wisdom] which God ordained before the ages for our glory, which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
1 Corinthians 2:7-8
God’s greatness is so incomprehensive that He can’t even be known to us unless He makes special efforts to make Himself known! The Apostle Paul wrote that the wisdom of God used to be “hidden.” It was the revelation of God’s glory through Jesus, especially by His crucifixion and resurrection that made the revelation of God freely accessible. Without Jesus as God in flesh, the eternally awesome God would remain a mystery. The mystery of God’s greatness is revealed through the work He did as Jesus. God changed forms to reveal Himself to us as Jesus without changing or compromising His eternally glorious essence, even in His death!
