FOUNDATIONAL SCRIPTURES FOR PROVES GOD
(posted: September 2012)
* All scripture references are from the New King James Version (NKJV) of the Bible, unless otherwise noted.
If the principles presented on Proves God are true, then why are they true? These scriptures and those to follow in the next article may shed light on the matter.
1 Since times are not hidden from the Almighty, why do those who know Him see not His days?
[This verse more than any other led to the discovery of the patterns.]
1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 2 For by it the elders obtained a good testimony.
Hebrews 11:1, 2
[The substance and evidence of faith provide a platform for testimony.]
3 By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.
[The major proof text of Proves God. God’s word provides the structure upon which the worlds are built. As the carpenter frames the house, so God’s word frames the world.]
4 For every house is built by someone, but He who built all things is God.
[God is the chief architect and builder of all things.]
14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
[God’s Word became physical reality. To this day and beyond, God’s word still becomes physical reality.]
12 For the word of God is living and powerful and sharper than a two-edged sword ... .
[Unlike any other book on earth, the Bible is a living and powerful creative force. It is the language of the universe, the operating system for the world (Psalm 19).]
