BECAUSE HE IS GOD
By: Akash Sant Singh

Because HE is holy, His anger burns against sin.
Because HE is righteous, His judgments fall on those who rebel against Him.
Because HE is faithful, the solemn threatenings of His Word are being fulfilled.
Because HE is omnipotent, no problem can master Him, no enemy can defeat Him, and no purpose of His can be withstood.
Because HE is who He is and what He is that we now behold what we do - the gathering clouds of the storm of Divine wrath, which will shortly, burst upon the earth.
Because HE is almighty He is one who speaks and it is done, who commands and it stands fast. He is the One with whom "all things are possible" and "who works all things after the counsel of His own will."
Such is the God of the Bible, the God who throws out the challenge:
"To whom then will ye liken God, or what likeness will ye compare unto Him?" (Isaiah 40:18).
And as though that were not enough, in the same chapter He asks again:
"To whom then will ye liken Me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One. Lift up your eyes on high and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: He calleth them all by names by the greatness of His might, for that He is strong in power, not one faileth...Hast thou not known? Has thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary?" (Isaiah 40:25,26,28).
