Gen. 1:1, “In the beginning GOD created heaven and earth”

John 1:1-2, “In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God; he was in the beginning with God.”

Heb. 1:1, “Long ago, at many times and in many ways, GOD spoke to our fathers by the prophets…”

Psalm 19:1, “the heavens declare the glory of God and the firmament shows His handiwork.”

Psalm 14:1, “The fool says in His heart, ‘there is no God.’”

Romans 1:19-20, “For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For His invisible attributes, namely, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So, they are without excuse.”
