Creation is All about God
For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen.
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them . . . .
It is a sign between Me and the children of Israel forever; for in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed.
You alone are the LORD; You have made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth and everything on it, the seas and all that is in them, and You preserve them all. The host of heaven worships You.
When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained.
By the word of the LORD the heavens were made, and all the host of them by the breath of His mouth. (7) He gathers the waters of the sea together as a heap; He lays up the deep in storehouses. (8) Let all the earth fear the LORD; let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him. (9) For He spoke, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast.
Psalms 89:11, 12a
The heavens are Yours, the earth also is Yours; the world and all its fullness, You have founded them. (12) The north and the south, You have created them . . . .
Of old You laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of Your hands.
Psalms 136:5a, 6a, 7a, 8a, 9a
To Him who by wisdom made the heavens . . . (6) To Him who laid out the earth above the waters . . . (7) To Him who made great lights . . . (8) The sun to rule by day . . . (9) The moon and stars to rule by nigh . . . .
Who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them . . . .
Thus says God the LORD, who created the heavens and stretched them out, who spread forth the earth and that which comes from it, who gives breath to the people on it, and spirit to those who walk on it.
Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, and He who formed you from the womb: “I am the LORD, who makes all things, who stretches out the heavens all alone, who spreads abroad the earth by Myself.”
Jeremiah 10:12, 13
He has made the earth by His power, He has established the world by His wisdom, and has stretched out the heavens at His discretion. (13) When He utters His voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens: and He causes the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth. He makes lightning for the rain, He brings the wind out of His treasuries.
Jeremiah 51:15, 16
He has made the earth by His power; He has established the world by His wisdom, and stretched out the heaven by His understanding. (16) When He utters His voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens; He causes the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth; He makes lightnings for the rain; He brings the wind out of His treasuries.
The burden of the Word of the LORD against Israel. Thus says the LORD, who stretches out the heavens, lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him.
All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.
. . . We also are men with the same nature as you, and preach to you that you should turn from these useless things to the living God, who made the heaven, the earth, the sea, and all things that are in them.
God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands.
Colossians 1:16, 17
For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. (17) And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.
Hebrews 1:2, 3, 10
[God] has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds; (3) who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the Word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high. (10) And: “You, LORD, in the beginning laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of Your hands.”
For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, and by Your will they exist and were created.
and swore by Him who lives forever and ever, who created heaven and the things that are in it, the earth and the things that are in it, and the sea and the things that are in it, that there should be delay no longer.
saying with a loud voice, “Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.”
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, (19) because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. (20) For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, (21) because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. (22) Professing to be wise, they became fools, (23) and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man — and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.
