These names and titles and activities and metaphors reveal his character and outreach towards needy humans. Many tables and Scripture references are included.
The Old Testament reality of God’s glory is carried forward into the New Testament. God communicates this attribute with us, in manifesting his presence, even visibly sometimes.
God’s attribute of beauty flows out of his goodness, glory and light, and shines on all of his creation and his highest creation—us.
It is closely related to glory. He is great, splendid, triumphant, dignified, and awesome.
We now begin the “Summary” attributes (perfection, blessedness, beauty, majesty, and glory), which means they complement and summarize and are comprehensive of the previous ones. They are capstones, so to speak.
This attribute means God knows himself in all his absolute perfections and takes calm delight in who he is. He exists and lives in totally and absolutely perfect blessedness.
No one tells him what to do or bosses him around or forces his hand. He is large and in charge. His will shall prevail in the end. How does human free will interact with this?
If your child were under attack, what would you do? That (imperfect) surge of protection that you feel comes close to the biblical definition of (perfect) jealousy in God. It’s about his protection over you.
It is an unpleasant topic until we understand it. Then it makes sense. God wrath is judicial. Think of an old English judge who wears a white wig.
This is one of God’s moral attributes or perfections, and it is communicable to us because we are made in the image of God and because he graces us with the capacity to do them, though imperfectly. We’re humans, after all.
