THE ATTRIBUTES OF GOD

PREFACE


"Acquaint now thyself with Him, and be at peace: thereby good shall come unto thee" (Job 22:21). "Thus saith the Lord, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty glory in his might, let not the rich glory in his riches: But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth, and knoweth Me, that I am the Lord" (Jer 9:23,24). A spiritual and saving knowledge of God is the greatest need of every human creature.

The foundation of all true knowledge of God must be a clear mental apprehension of His perfections as revealed in Holy Scripture. An unknown God can neither be trusted, served, nor worshipped. In this booklet an effort has been made to set forth some of the principal perfections of the Divine character. If the reader is to truly profit from his perusal of the pages that follow, he needs to definitely and earnestly beseech God to bless them to him, to apply His Truth to the conscience and heart, so that his life will be transformed thereby.

Something more than a theoretical knowledge of God is needed by us. God is only truly known in the soul as we yield ourselves to Him, submit to His authority, and regulate all the details of our lives by His holy precepts and commandments. "Then shall we know, if we follow on (in the path of obedience) to know the Lord" (Hosea 6:3). "If any man will do His will, he shall know" (John 7:17). "The people that do know their God shall be strong" (Dan 11:32).


In 1889, three years before his death, and in the midst of the 'Down-grade controversy', C. H. Spurgeon warned that 'debasing doctrine now, will affect children yet unborn, generation after generation...For my part, I am quite willing to be eaten by dogs for the next fifty years; but the more distant future shall vindicate me'. A. W. Pink, then a child of three, was one of the few who was to remain a burning witness to historic Christianity in the wilderness years which followed.
He was virtually unknown in the Christian world at the time of his death in 1952. Since then the new era which Spurgeon anticipated has dawned and Pink's writings have been powerfully used of God.

FOREWORD

The papers which follow appeared first in the authorís monthly magazine "Studies in the Scriptures," which is devoted entirely to the expounding of Godís Word and a seeking to provide spiritual food for hungry souls. Free sample copy gladly sent on application. (Not today). These articles have been reissued in their present form through the generosity of a Christian friend who has defrayed the entire cost of their publication. Proceeds from the sale of this booklet will be used, D. V., to issue others of a similar nature. May the blessing of God rest upon it. - ARTHUR W. PINK.
