Who Then Is Like Me?

Before me no god was formed, nor will there be one after me. I, even I, am the LORD, and apart from me there is no savior. I have revealed and saved and proclaimed— I, and not some foreign god among you. You are my witnesses,” declares the LORD, “that I am God. Yes, and from ancient days I am he. No one can deliver out of my hand. When I act, who can reverse it?”   (Isaiah 43:10–13, NIV 1984).

I am the first and I am the last; apart from me there is no God. Who then is like me? Let him proclaim it. Let him declare and lay out before me what has happened since I established my ancient people, and what is yet to come— yes, let him foretell what will come. Do not tremble, do not be afraid. Did I not proclaim this and foretell it long ago? You are my witnesses. Is there any God besides me? No, there is no other Rock; I know not one.”  (Isaiah 44:6–8, NIV 1984).

My Musings – Eternal.  First and last, Alpha and Omega.  No god before or after.  Ancient of days, with no beginning or end.  God is from eternity past and future.  Who was (always), is (IAM) and evermore shall be.

Omnipotent.  No one can either stop or reverse His actions.  No can is greater or could be greater.

Immutable.  He does not change, nor could He.  Solid as a rock.  But like no rock we could possibly conceive of.

Pre-eminent. Surpassing all others. None beside Him, no not one.  No one before, after (eternal), more powerful or ever could be (omnipotent).  This will never change (immutable).

My Advice – Worship Him, for “these are but the outer fringe of his works; how faint the whisper we hear of him!”  (Job 26:14, NIV 1984).  Yes, all of the above are merely faint whispers of how great thou art!

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.
