Is God 'Mercy, Pity, Peace and Love' as Blake wrote? Or do you have perhaps a different conception of God – do you picture a person you love or have loved and lost, or is your God even a violent God, or flawed in other ways?
All-inclusive. Everything that I could ever need and more.
He is the "I AM"
which I take to mean He is everything that I require.
He is - absolutely. He is everything we need.
in an absolute sense means He IS and we are not.
Only He is and is everything for us.
Everything positive He is the reality of.
Whatever I lack, in Christ, He IS.
The typology in the Old Testament has as its largest symbol of Jesus Christ "the Good Land" - it is the Promise Land.
The all-inclusive land with everything God's people could possibly need is Christ.
