This bar-code number lets you verify that you're getting exactly the right version or edition of a book Format: Paperback. In the face of God’s self-revelation in nature, we have no excuse before Him.

Even if no one has ever taught us, or if we have never read the Bible, indeed even if we are illiterate, we can still know God for he is revealed in nature, if we have eyes to see. What is more, we are warned not to suppress this knowledge. The "Divinity" of the Revised Version is preferable, since here the apostle is speaking, not of the incommunicable essence of God, as in Colossiansbut of his nature as distinguished from our mortal humanity.

The works of God show that he can originate life; man can only propagate it. Natural revelation is the revelation of God in nature. Rom. says, "For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse." Nature can tell us certain things about God.

It seems God is anxious to share with us the story of how man and creation are marred by sin.) Friends, nature should convince us of a power above ourselves. The primary lesson of the book of nature is to convince us that God exists.

God's second book, the Bible, then puts the picture of God into focus. NEXT WEEK: BUT DID IT REALLY HAPPEN. Impact of God’s Revelation (Ps. ): The psalm has taken us from a general revelation of God in nature to a very personal and specific revelation of God in the torah.

Listening to both of them, says the psalmist, should lead us, first, to recognize our need of forgiveness (verse 12). Confronted by God’s majesty and love, humans. The Bible testifies that "nature" or "creation" gives clear testimony to God's existence.

Everyone, everywhere, has this testimony. Natural revelation is more than sufficient to make humanity responsible and to show them they are "without excuse." Consequently humans should attempt to find out who this Creator is and what He requires of them.

The beginning of the book of Romans explains natural revelation and its implications: “The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them.

The Revelation 6 Plague Revelation is a difficult book to understand and interpret. I offer that caveat as I give my explanation, which assumes that the apocalypse is a future event and the numbers are literal. transcendent God revealed in both Scripture and nature.

The book of Revelation itself declares that it is prophecy: “Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of the prophecy ” (Revelation ). Four additional times in the last chapter of the book the message is declared to be prophetic (Revelation10, 18, 19).

Natural revelation is limited in its scope, but that does not mean it fails to achieve its purposes. God reveals Himself in nature so that no one will be able to plead ignorance of His existence on the last day.

His message gets through, and we can appeal to creation as proof of His existence when we are talking with unbelievers. : True Nature of God (): Andrew Wommack: Books His profound revelation of the Word of God is taught with clarity and simplicity, emphasizing God's unconditional love and the balance between grace and s: Early theologians believed the Book of Nature was a source of God's revelation to mankind: when read alongside sacred scripture, the "book" of nature and the study of God's creations would lead to a knowledge of God himself.

Special revelation, on the other hand, is specific in its content and omnipotent in its effect. Through this revelation, God communicates the mysteries of the faith and personal knowledge of Christ to his people.

Scripture is the written form of special revelation, providing God’s people with an enduring witness to the work of God in Christ. “Two Books of Revelation: Scripture and Nature” This topic hits at probably one of the more difficult and perhaps controversial issues in the Science/Faith debate – at least for Christians.

Orthodox Christianity has always acknowledged the ability of Nature itself to ‘speak’ or ‘reveal’ certain aspects of the nature of God. The central thesis of this book, if I have understood it correctly, is that a Christian understanding of the revelation of God should be presented in terms of the biblical notion of the knowledge of God, and therefore in turn in terms of the gospel, which is the means by which that knowledge of God comes about/5(4).
