Theology 101 With Isaiah #5 of 6
A GOD IN A CLASS ALL TO HIMSELF
Ken Trivette
Isaiah 40:18,25

1. I once came across a description of God entitled, "God
is Like:"
. God is like Coke: He's the real thing.
. God is like Pan Am: He makes the going great.
. God is like General Electric: He lights your path.
. God is like Bayer Aspirin: He works wonders.
. God is like Hallmark Cards: He cares enough to send

. God is like Scotch Tape: You can't see Him, but you
know He's there.

6. The word "compare" is an interesting word. It literally
