The universe is expanding presently from its original birth at the big bang. It eventually will stop expanding and then slowly reverse and begin to collapse into itself. It will reach a point again where the total mass of the universe will be concentrated in a very small object of tremendous mass. This object will eventually explode again in another big bang repeating the whole process of creation again. The time period for this cycle is so large that it is incomprehensible for beings such as ourselves only used to short time frames as reference. Now imagine each of the above cycles and ponder how many would fit into eternity? The answer of-course is an infinite amount. Now imagine God as the creator of the entire material realm within this eternity. We have a difficult time imagining why such a powerful being would be interested in us and we will not know exactly why until we are in that eternal realm. Upon that transition we will become completely aware of the whys and hows to many, if not all, of our questions which are now limited by our finite comprehension.

My suggestion is to ask all these questions to God in prayer genuinely and seek his answer. Keep praying till you get your answer. He had promised in the Bible that those who seek shall find. I can tell you what I think but I am not sure if it would convince you. Except I will say that if you want to know what God is like look at Jesus. He is the exact image of God and he is God.

*Elohim about you like he said in John 3:16 โ€œFor Elohim so loved the world that He gave His only brought-forth Son, so that everyone who believes in Him should not perish but possess everlasting life". That is alot to give for you.
*Yeshua Jesus told the Samaritan woman, โ€œEloh is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truthโ€ (John 4:24). โ€œSpiritโ€ means incorporeal being
*Elohim was clear about His name: Isa 42:8 โ€œI am ื™ื”ื•ื” (YHWH-Yahveh), that is My Name, and My esteem I do not give to another, nor My praise to idols".
*If you get close to Yeshua, the Messiah of Israel, you will know the Creator and if love Elohim you will comply with all his commandments as it says in : 1Jn 5:2-3 "By this we know that we love the children of Elohim, when we love Elohim and guard His commands. For this is the love for Elohim, that we guard His commands, and His commands are not heavy" See also Mathew 7:17-22. Blessings

Hello friend, you are asking age-old questions which have all been answered. It is written, "Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends." You ask if God really cares about you. It is written, "but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us." That is the greatest expression of love ever known. To love is to care.

What is God like and does He have a name? God is infinite spirit and it is impossible to truly comprehend the fullness of His Majesty. But Jesus came into the world that we might know God. He said to Phillip, "Whoever has seen me has seen the Father." So, by looking over Jesus' life while here on Earth, we can get a handle on what God is like because Jesus is God. He is loving, forgiving, perfect, full of Grace, wise, omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent, creative, and list goes on and on but never forget He is Holy, Holy, Holy.

None can come to God on their own merits for they are as filthy ragsThankfully, it is Jesus that we go through. His works which are perfect and not our own. We are perfected through Him and we have peace with God. It is written, "Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus." Now we can approach His thrown boldly. We can be in His Holy presence for we have been made righteous through Him. So, yes, we can get close to God.

Does God have a name? Takes me back to Theology 101. Wow! Does He! He has many names which testify to His character as to who He is. The very first name given to God found in the very first verse of Genesis. This name shows that God is the majestic ruler over all. Elohim is actually a plural word and itโ€™s use as the first name of God and sets him high above all other gods. It also foreshadows the later revelation of the triune Godhead โ€“ Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Yahweh is the promised proper name of God. It means Lord and Master. El is likely related to the word Elohim and is used in conjunction with other descriptive words to specifically reference a particular characteristic of God. Elyon means highest or most high. Used together El Elyon means The Most High God. It refers to the characteristic of God that is above everyone and everything. This name describes his position as sovereign majestic preeminent God.

Adonai means Lord, Master, or Owner. This name emphasizes that God is in charge of his creation and his people, Lord of lords. El Shaddai is usually translated Lord God Almighty. God is our all-powerful and all-sufficient sustainer. El Olam means The Everlasting God. He exists beyond time and space. We can take comfort in the fact that God always was, and always will be God. Nothing we can ever face will change that because God is unchangeable.

Jehovah Jireh, meaning The Lord Will Provide. God is quietly arranging things behind the scenes so that they will be in just the right place exactly when we need them. Jehovah Rapha means The Lord Who Heals You. God is the Great Physician who heals his people. This truth in Godโ€™s name applies equally to emotional, psychological, and physical healing as well as to nations and individuals alike.

Jehovah Nissi means The Lord Is My Banner. God himself is our banner and victory. He gives us hope and a focus, and is the one who wins our battles. El Qanna means Jealous God. Godโ€™s jealousy is a holy, loving jealousy without any of the insecure manipulation or control that comes packaged with worldly jealousy. It draws from the marriage relationship with a picture of a husband jealous for his wife.

God longs for each of us to put him first in our lives in priority and importance, not out out of ego, but because he knows that is truly what is best for us. Jehovah Mโ€™Kaddesh) means The Lord Who Sanctifies You. God sets us apart as his children when we become believers. He sanctifies us and makes us holy because we are incapable of it on our own.

Jehovah Shalom means The Lord Is Peace. When it seems like the whole world is against you or that you you are completely unable to deal with whatever problem is in front of you, turn to the God of peace to find comfort and strength. Jehovah Sabaoth means The Lord of Armies or The Lord of Hosts. The Lord reigns over a vast well ordered host in the heavenlies. God is always there to defend us, fight our battles, and win our wars. There is no enemy he cannot defeat.

Jehovah Raah means The Lord Is My Shepherd. God is a friend who provides extravagant nourishment, protection, as well as rest for our weary bodies and souls. Jehovah Tsidkenu means The Lord Who Is Our Righteousness. God himself stands for us and provides us with His righteousness and justice when we donโ€™t have any in ourselves. He is the one who provides victory and our prosperity.

Jehovah Shammah means The Lord is There. God revealed this name at a time when Israel was in rebellion and in captivity. God was letting the Jews know that he had not forsaken them and that he was still there, both in their present as well as in their future. Regardless of what you are going through, or what you are heading into, you can take comfort knowing that God is already there.

Most importantly, remember that Jesus is returning to set up His earthly kingdom & the requirement to be in His kingdom is perfection. But, all of sinned and have fallen short of His Glory. There are none who are righteous - Not a one. That is why Jesus came. He lived the life we were meant to live and lived it absolutely perfectly. He gave up His life that we might have life through Him because He became sin without ever being a sinner so that penalty of sin (death) could be given in our place.

So, going back to your first question regarding God caring for us. He made it clear in the creation & clearer still by the cross & resurrection. Yes He cares beyond anything we can truly appreciate. No where else in all the world do you have a god seeking out man for a relationship. In all of those others it is a matter of what we can do. But in God's economy, it is about what He has already done.
