Genesis 1:26

26 Then God said, "Let us make mankind in our image, to be like us. Let them be masters over the fish in the ocean, the birds that fly, the livestock, everything that crawls on the earth, and over the earth itself!"

Psalms 139:13-14

13 It was you who formed my internal organs, fashioning me within my mother's womb. 14 I praise you, because you are fearful and wondrous! Your work is wonderful, and I am fully aware of it.

Proverbs 21:30

30 No wisdom, insight, or counsel can prevail against the LORD.

John 1:1-51

1 In the beginning, the Word existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He existed in the beginning with God. 3 Through him all things were made, and apart from him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life brought light to humanity. 5 And the light shines on in the darkness, and the darkness has never put it out. 6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 He came as a witness to testify about the light, so that all might believe because of him. 8 John was not the light, but he came to testify about the light. 9 This was the true light that enlightens every person by his coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made through him. Yet the world did not recognize him. 11 He came to his own creation, yet his own people did not receive him. 12 However, to all who received him, those believing in his name, he gave authority to become God's children, 13 who were born, not merely in a genetic sense, nor from lust, nor from man's desire, but from the will of God. 14 The Word became flesh and lived among us. We gazed on his glory, the kind of glory that belongs to the Father's unique Son, who is full of grace and truth. 15 John told the truth about him when he cried out, "This is the person about whom I said, 'The one who comes after me ranks higher than me, because he existed before me.'" 16 We have all received one gracious gift after another from his abundance, 17 because while the Law was given through Moses, grace and truth came through Jesus the Messiah. 18 No one has ever seen God. The unique God, who is close to the Father's side, has revealed him. 19 This was John's testimony when the Jews sent priests and Levites to him from Jerusalem to ask him, "Who are you?" 20 He spoke openly and, remaining true to himself, admitted, "I am not the Messiah." 21 So they asked him, "Well then, are you Elijah?" John said, "I am not." "Are you the Prophet?" He answered, "No." 22 Then they said to him, "Who are you? We must give an answer to those who sent us. What do you say about yourself?" 23 He replied, "I am '…a voice crying out in the wilderness, "Prepare the Lord's highway,"' as the prophet Isaiah said." 24 Now those men had been sent from the Pharisees. 25 They asked him, "Why, then, are you baptizing if you are not the Messiah, or Elijah, or the Prophet?" 26 John answered them, "I am baptizing with water, but among you stands a man whom you do not know, 27 the one who is coming after me, whose sandal straps I am not worthy to untie." 28 This happened in Bethany on the other side of the Jordan, where John was baptizing. 29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, "Look, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! 30 This is the one about whom I said, 'After me comes a man who ranks above me, because he existed before me.' 31 I didn't recognize him, but I came baptizing with water so that he might be revealed to Israel." 32 John also testified, "I saw the Spirit coming down from heaven like a dove, and it remained on him. 33 I didn't recognize him, but the one who sent me to baptize with water told me, 'The person on whom you see the Spirit descending and remaining is the one who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.' 34 I have seen this and have testified that this is the Son of God." 35 The next day John was standing there again with two of his disciples. 36 As he watched Jesus walk by, he said, "Look, the Lamb of God!" 37 When the two disciples heard him say this, they followed Jesus. 38 But when Jesus turned around and saw them following, he asked them, "What are you looking for?" They asked him, "Rabbi," (which is translated "Teacher"), "where are you staying?" 39 He told them, "Come and see!" So they went and saw where he was staying, and they remained with him that day. It was about four o'clock in the afternoon. 40 Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, was one of the two who heard John and followed Jesus. 41 The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon and say to him, "We have found the Messiah!" (which is translated "Christ"). 42 He led Simon to Jesus. Jesus looked at him intently and said, "You are Simon, John's son. You will be called Cephas!" (which is translated "Peter"). 43 The next day Jesus decided to go away to Galilee, where he found Philip and said to him, "Follow me." 44 Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the hometown of Andrew and Peter. 45 Philip found Nathaniel and told him, "We have found the man about whom Moses in the Law and the Prophets wrote {— } Jesus, the son of Joseph, from Nazareth." 46 Nathaniel asked him, "Out of Nazareth? Can anything good come from there?" Philip told him, "Come and see!" 47 Jesus saw Nathaniel coming toward him and said about him, "Look, a genuine Israelite, in whom there is no deceit!" 48 Nathaniel asked him, "How do you know me?" Jesus answered him, "Before Philip called you, while you were under the fig tree, I saw you." 49 Nathaniel replied to him, "Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!" 50 Jesus said to him, "Do you believe because I told you that I saw you under the fig tree? You will see greater things than that." 51 Then he said to him, "Truly, I tell all of you with certainty, you will see heaven standing open and the angels of God going up and coming down to the Son of Man."

2 Peter 3:3-6

3 First of all you must understand this: In the last days mockers will come and, following their own desires, will ridicule us 4 by saying, "What happened to the Messiah's promise to return? Ever since our ancestors died, everything continues as it did from the beginning of creation." 5 But they deliberately ignore the fact that long ago the heavens existed and the earth was formed by God's word out of water and with water, 6 by which the world at that time was deluged with water and destroyed.

2 Peter 3:8

8 Don't forget this fact, dear friends: With the Lord a single day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a single day.

Romans 1:20-27

20 For since the creation of the world God's invisible attributes {— } his eternal power and divine nature {— } have been understood and observed by what he made, so that people are without excuse. 21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him. Instead, their thoughts turned to worthless things, and their senseless hearts were darkened. 22 Though claiming to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images that looked like mortal human beings, birds, four-footed animals, and reptiles. 24 For this reason, God delivered them to sexual impurity as they followed the lusts of their hearts and dishonored their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged God's truth for a lie and worshipped and served the creation rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. 26 For this reason, God delivered them to degrading passions as their females exchanged their natural sexual function for one that is unnatural. 27 In the same way, their males also abandoned their natural sexual function toward females and burned with lust toward one another. Males committed indecent acts with males, and received within themselves the appropriate penalty for their perversion.

Genesis 1:21

21 So God created every kind of magnificent sea creature, every kind of living sea crawler with which the waters swarmed, and every kind of flying bird. And God saw how good it was.

Isaiah 44:24-25

Colossians 2:8

8 See to it that no one enslaves you through philosophy and empty deceit according to human tradition, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to the Messiah,

Hebrews 11:1-3

1 Now faith is the assurance that what we hope for will come about and the certainty that what we cannot see exists. 2 By faith our ancestors won approval. 3 By faith we understand that time was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was made from things that are invisible.

Colossians 1:16-17

16 For by him all things in heaven and on earth were created, things visible and invisible, whether they are kings, lords, rulers, or powers. All things have been created through him and for him. 17 He himself existed before anything else did, and he holds all things together.
