Isaiah 28:16; (NIV)
16 So this is what the Sovereign Lord says:
“See, I lay a stone in Zion (Meaning “in the essence of things.”), a tested stone,
a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation;
the one who relies on it
will never be stricken with panic.
Romans 1:20; (NIV)
20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
Humans can make things; we can intervene in nature by imitating things in nature and experimenting with things in nature; liken unto a child in a nursery playing with building blocks. The above scriptures are the profound, fundamental messages on which science and technology operate and develop. The stone that God laid in the essence of things is God’s perfect righteousness giving perfect order to all things. Scientist seeks God’s perfect ordering, and humans in general seek God’s perfect righteousness.
All that exist has been created by God, and made possible by the human design to endeavor to put things together that had not been made yet such as a television which is a collection of God’s principles arranged together to make it functional. The television’s functionality was created by God during the creation of the earth 4 billion years prior.
Ecclesiastes 3:15; (NIV)
15 Whatever is has already been,
and what will be has been before;
and God will call the past to account.
Everything that humans observe is an illustration of a higher truth. When we are wise we apply knowledge in a manner that reveal a higher truth. Knowledge comes from those things functioning. When humans arranges numerous things that functions in many different ways we get a more better view of their collective functionality which is less than all of the functions. Of course, this is the physical realms. The spiritual realms are usually represented by “liken unto’s” in the physical realms as shown in the scriptures above in order for humans to understand. The most profound scripture that relates the physical realm to the spiritual realm is the scripture above, Romans 1:20.
