68:18 When you ascended to the heights, you led a crowd of captives. You
received gifts from the people, even from those who rebelled against you.
Now the LORD God will live among us here. 19 Praise the Lord; praise God
our savior! For each day he carries us in his arms. 20 Our God is a God who
saves! The Sovereign LORD rescues us from death.
CharacteristicsGen 8:20 Then Noah built an altar to the LORD and, taking
some of all the clean animals and clean birds, he sacrificed burnt offerings
on it. 21 The LORD smelled the pleasing aroma and said in his heart:
"Never again will I curse the ground because of man, even though every
inclination of his heart is evil from childhood. And never again will I destroy
all living creatures, as I have done.

4:39 This is your wonderful thought for the day: Jehovah is God both in heaven
and down here upon the earth; and there is no God other than him!
Col 1:15 He is the image of the invisible
God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For by him all things were created:
things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or
powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him.
17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18 And he
is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn
from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. 19
For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, 20 and through
him to reconcile to himself all things, whether
things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed
on the cross. NIV
Dan 7:13 "In my vision at night I looked, and there
before me was one like a son of man, coming with the clouds of heaven.
He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into his presence. 14 He was
given authority, glory and sovereign power; all peoples, nations and men
of every language worshiped him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion
that will not pass away, and his kingdom is one that will never be destroyed.
John 5:25 I tell you the truth, a time is coming and
has now come when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and those
who hear will live. 26 For as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted
the Son to have life in himself. 27 And he has given him authority to judge
because he is the Son of Man.
God/manGen 1:26 Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in
our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of
the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures

image of God he created him; male and female he created them.

5:21 For just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, even
so the Son gives life to whom he is pleased to give it. 22 Moreover,
the Father judges no one, but has entrusted all judgment to the Son, 23 that
all may honor the Son just as they honor the Father. He who does not honor
the Son does not honor the Father, who sent him. 24 "I tell you the truth,
whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will
not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life. John 5:25 I tell
you the truth, a time is coming and has now come when the dead will hear
the voice of the Son of God and those who hear will live. 26 For as the Father
has life in himself, so he has granted the Son to have life in himself. 27
And he has given him authority to judge because he is the Son of Man.
