God is Omnipotent
Updated: Feb 9
Notes compiled by Marty Zide and Steve McAtee
Omnipotence simply stated means that God is all-powerful. God is all-powerful and able to do whatever He wills. His will is limited by His nature, God can do everything that is in harmony with His perfections. There are certain things that God cannot do because it would be a violation of His very being. God cannot do things that are not in harmony with His nature. He cannot lie, or go back on His promises He has made in his Word or sin. To do so would be a violation of His own standards. For example, see Matt. 19:26 Titus 1:2, Heb. 6:18, 2 Timothy 2:13, and James 1:13.
