Daily Bible Nugget #355, Jeremiah 23:24

The Nugget:

Jeremiah 23:24 Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD.

My Comment

The eighth of more than 40 attributes of God on my list is the attribute of immensity. Now this is not a word likely to be found in your Bible, but it is described at Jeremiah 23:24.

God more than fills heaven and earth. By virtue of His immensity, God is omnipresent. I wish I could tell you more about this attribute, but that is all I know, and all I have been able to find out using what resources I have in my own personal library.

The cross references given for this verse below may be of some help in exploring what the Bible has to say about all this.

Clearly, there is nowhere anyone can go to hide or escape from God. He knows all that goes on in every part of the universe in detail all at the same time. It is good to know he cares about each of us individually and specifically (Psalm 40:17).

For those who desire to DIG DEEPER into this subject:

(1) Consult the cross references given in Nelson’s Cross Reference Guide to the Bible on page 821 for Jeremiah 23:24.

(2) Consult the cross references given in The New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge on page 846 or in Logos 5 or 6 Bible software for Jeremiah 23:24.

(3) Consult the cross references given in the original Treasury of Scripture Knowledge on page 481 of the OT or on line at www.blueletterbible.org for Jeremiah 23:24.

(3) Most people today do not have access to those three print resources, so I have posted cross references for this passage as I have developed them even more completely for your study as given below:

Jeremiah 23:24. Can. FS85C, +Ge 18:14. hide. Je 49:10. *Ge 3:8. *Ge 16:13. Dt 27:15. 1 S 28:8. 1 K 22:30. *2 K 6:12. 19:27. 2 Ch 18:29. *Jb 22:13, 14. *Jb 24:13-16. 33:27. *Jb 34:22. *Ps 10:11. +Ps 11:4. *Ps 90:8. +*Ps 119:168. 139:3, 7, 11-16. *Pr 15:3. *Is 29:15. *Ezk 8:8, 12. 9:9. Da 2:22. 10:7. Am 9:2, 3. Ac 5:3. Ep 5:12. 1 J 3:20n. not see him. Je 7:11. 16:17. 29:23. 32:19. Ge 13:13. 39:11. Ps 10:14. 33:13. 44:21. 53:2. 94:9. Pr 5:21. Is 37:28. 47:10. Mt 6:4. Do not I fill. FS85B, +Ge 13:9. For the omnipresence of God the Father, see +Pr 15:3 (T#220). God the Father possesses the incommunicable divine attribute of immensity (+*Mt 28:19n). Shedd categorizes this attribute as one of the immanent or intransitive attributes “which do not go forth and operate outside of the Divine essence, but remain internal. Such are immensity, eternity, simplicity, self-existence, etc.” (Dogmatic Theology, Vol. 1, p. 337). “The Immensity of God is his essence as related to space. The Divine essence is not measurable, because not included in the limits of space. God’s immensity is spiritual, having no extension of substance. By virtue of God’s immensity, he is Omnipresent” (Shedd, Dogmatic Theology, vol. 1, pp. 339, 340). 1 K 8:27. 2 Ch 2:6. 6:18. Ps 104:1. 148:13. +Pr 15:3. **Is 57:15. 66:1. Da 4:35. +*Mt 28:19n. *Ep 1:22, 23. heaven. +Dt 10:14. Ac 7:49. 17:24, 27.
