All the Gods – Scripture Survey

Pastor Peter used a lot of Scripture in Sunday’s sermon. They are listed below.

“Let us make humankind in our image, according to our likeness…” – Genesis 1:26

“God has taken his place in the divine council; in the midst of the gods he holds judgment…I say, ‘You are gods, children of the Most High, all of you.'” – Psalm 82:1, 6

“When the Most High apportioned the nations, when he divided humankind, he fixed the boundaries of the peoples according to the number of gods; the Lord’s own portion was his people, Jacob his allotted share.” – Deuteronomy 32:8-9

“on all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgments: I am the Lord” – Exodus 12:12

“How long will you judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked? Give justice to the weak and the orphans; maintain the right of the lowly and the destitute. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.” – Psalm 82:3-4

“For the Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who is not partial and takes no bribe, who executes justice for the orphan and the widow, and who loves the strangers, providing them food and clothing.” – Deuteronomy 10:17-18

“Jesus said, ‘The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.'” – Luke 4:18-19

“Jesus is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation; for in him all things in heaven and one earth were created, things visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or powers – all things have been created through him and for him. He himself is before all things, and in him all things hold together. He is the head of the body, the church…and through him God was pleased to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, by making peace through the cross.” – Colossians 1:17-20

“so that through the church the wisdom of God in its rich variety might now be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly places.” – Ephesians 3:10

“For our struggle is not against enemies of blood and flesh, but against rulers, against the authorities, against cosmic powers of this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” – Ephesians 6:12

“Rise up, O God, judge the earth; for all the nations belong to you!” – Psalm 82:8

“From one ancestor God made all the nations to inhabit the whole earth, and he allotted the times of their existence and the boundaries of the places where they would live, so that they would search for God and perhaps grope for him and find him – though indeed he is not far from each one of us…’for we too are his offspring.'” – Acts. 17:26-28

“because God has fixed a day on which he will have the world judged in righteousness by a man who he has appointed, and of this God has given assurance to all by raising him from the dead.” – Acts 17:31

“Go therefore and teach the nations…” – Matthew 28:19
