This is a series on the attributes of God.


Selected Scriptures

Purpose: In this session we shall look at what the Old Testament has to say about the omnipotence of God so that we would draw implications for our lives.

(Note: I will post the New Testament outline sometime this week, further editing is required)

Definitions of the omnipotence of God:

  1. Looking at the root of the word omnipotence: “The word omnipotence is derived from two Latin words, omni, “all,” and potens, “powerful,” and means “all-powerful.”[1]
  2. Wayne Grudem: “God’s omnipotence means that God is able to do all his holy will.”[2]
  3. John Frame: “The term omnipotence is not in Scripture, but the term is appropriate to refer to two biblical ideas, closely related to one another: God can do anything He pleases…Nothing is too hard for God.”[3]
  4. John Feinberg: “God is able to do everything Scripture shows him doing.”[4]
