Is his almighty power. This is essential to his nature as an infinite, independent, and perfect being. The power of God is divided into absolute, and ordinate or actual. Absolute, is that whereby God is able to do that which he will not do, but is possible to be done. Ordinate is that whereby he doeth that which he hath decreed to do. The power of God may be more especially seen, 1. In creation, Rom. 1:20. Genesis 1.—2. In the preservation of his creatures, Heb. 1:3. Col. 1:16,17. Job 26.—3. In the redemption of men by Christ, Luke 1:35, 37. Eph. 1:19.—4. In the conversion of sinners, Psal. 110:3. 2 Cor. 4:7. Rom. 1:16.—5. In the continuation and success of the Gospel in the world, Matt. 13:31, 32.—6. In the final perseverance of the saints, 1 Pet. 1:5.—7. In the resurrection of the dead, 1 Cor. 15.—8. In making the righteous happy for ever, and punishing the wicked, Phil. 3:21. Matt. 25:34, &c.
