What is God?

“God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth.” John 4:24

“Can you fathom the mysteries of God?
Can you probe the limits of the Almighty?
They are higher than the heavens — what can you do?
They are deeper than the depths of the grave — what can you know?
Their measure is longer than the earth
and wider than the sea.” Job 11:7-9

“Before the mountains were born
or you brought forth the earth and the world,
from everlasting to everlasting you are God.” Psalm 90:2

his understanding has no limit.” Psalm 147:5

“Each of the four living creatures had six wings and was covered with eyes all around, even under his wings. Day and night they never stop singing:
‘Holy, holy, holy
is the Lord God Almighty,
who was, and is, and is to come.” Revelation 4:8

“Who will not fear you, O Lord,
and bring glory to your name?
For you alone are holy.
All nations will come
and worship before you,
for your righteous acts have been revealed.” Revelation 15:4
