The Five W’s of God
The who, what, when, where, and why of God and His plan for creation
 

Chapter 2

God

    This is where it all literally begins, with God. Everything that is, came after God already was; and there was nothing before Him. We read in Jeremiah 10:12, "He hath made the earth by His power, He hath established the world by His wisdom, and hath stretched out the heavens by His discretion." We also know, "No man hath seen God at any time." This statement is made in I John 4:12; and though no human has seen God, many have been in His presence.


      This presence is called the Shekanyah glory in Hebrew and is Strong's Concordance #7935. It means, "Yah has dwelt," or "God is there." It is a term to describe the most brilliant pure energy and light of God, which is also a symbol of His nature as we read in I John 1:5: "This then is the message which we have heard of Him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all." We see a description of this in Luke 2:9: "And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid."


         Another view of the Shekanyah glory of God is written in Ezekiel 10:4:

Then the glory of the Lord went up from the cherub, and stood over the threshold of the house; and the house was filled with the cloud, and the court was full of the brightness of the Lord's glory.


In Psalms 104:2 we see God covered in this light: "Who coverest Thyself with light as with a garment: Who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain:"


      In Ezekiel 43:2 we hear what God's voice sounds like and again see that brilliant light of God's presence: "And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east: and His voice was like a noise of many waters: and the earth shined with His glory." In I Timothy 6:15-16 we are told God will show Himself in "His times," and until then flesh can't actually see or approach Him:

  1. 15.Which in His times He shall shew, Who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords; 


16. Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; Whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to Whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.

          

        The one constant in all of these verses is that brilliant light. It's God's pure energy. Another term used quite often in the Bible for this brilliant light is consuming fire. Hebrews 12:29 reads, "For our God is a consuming fire." Again in Deuteronomy 4:24, "(For the LORD thy God is a consuming fire).
