Read these five verses and see how many things were made and came into existence through the power, the creativity, and the absolute abilities of God the I AM
 
John 1:3
    3All things were made and came into existence through Him; and without Him was not even one thing made that has come into being.
 
1 Corinthians 8:6
    6Yet for us there is [only] one God, the Father, Who is the Source of all things and for Whom we [have life], and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through and by Whom are all things and through and by Whom we [ourselves exist].
 
Revelation 4:11
    11Worthy are You, our Lord and God, to receive the glory and the honor and dominion, for You created all things; by Your will they were [brought into being] and were created.
 
Colossians 1:16-17
    16For it was in Him that all things were created, in heaven and on earth, things seen and things unseen, whether thrones, dominions, rulers, or authorities; all things were created and exist through Him [by His service, intervention] and in and for Him.
    17And He Himself existed before all things, and in Him all things consist (are held together).
 
Romans 11:36
    36For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. [For all things originate with Him and come from Him; all things live through Him, and all things center in and tend to consummate and to end in Him.] To Him be glory forever! Amen (so be it).
 

All things. Spend 30 seconds [or even longer] trying to make a list in your mind of “all things.” Now, compare them.
 
What better proof is there of God’s creativity? Even though there really is no need to think further, you will enjoy reading the verses here. Since the Book of Job has so many continuous examples of "all things," we’ll start with this book.
 
Would you like a challenge? After reading the passages from Job here, answer this question: What animal is referenced in the words “his sneezings flash forth light”?

 
Job 5:8-27
    8As for me, I would seek God and inquire of and require Him, and to God would I commit my cause--
    9Who does great things and unsearchable, marvelous things without number,
    10Who gives rain upon the earth and sends waters upon the fields,
    11So that He sets on high those who are lowly, and those who mourn He lifts to safety.
    12He frustrates the devices of the crafty, so that their hands cannot perform their enterprise or anything of [lasting] worth.
    13He catches the [so-called] wise in their own trickiness, and the counsel of the schemers is brought to a quick end.
    14In the daytime they meet in darkness, and at noon they grope as in the night.
    15But [God] saves [the fatherless] from the sword of their mouth, and the needy from the hand of the mighty.
    16So the poor have hope, and iniquity shuts her mouth.
    17Happy and fortunate is the man whom God reproves; so do not despise or reject the correction of the Almighty [subjecting you to trial and suffering].
    18For He wounds [to cleanse] (or prune, see John 15:2), but He binds up; He smites, but His hands heal.
    19He will rescue you in six troubles; in seven nothing that is evil [for you] will touch you.
    20In famine He will redeem you from death, and in war from the power of the sword.
    21You shall be hidden from the scourge of the tongue, neither shall you be afraid of destruction when it comes.
    22At destruction and famine you shall laugh, neither shall you be afraid of the living creatures of the earth.
    23For you shall be in league with the stones of the field, and the beasts of the field shall be at peace with you.
    24And you shall know that your tent shall be in peace, and you shall visit your fold and your dwelling and miss nothing [from them].
    25You shall know also that your children shall be many, and your offspring as the grass of the earth.
    26You shall come to your grave in ripe old age, and as a shock of grain goes up [to the threshing floor] in its season.
    27This is what we have searched out; it is true. Hear and heed it and know for yourself [for your good].
 
Job 8:21
    21He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with joyful shouting.
 
Job 9:5-10
    5[God] Who removes the mountains, and they know it not when He overturns them in His anger;
    6Who shakes the earth out of its place, and the pillars of it tremble;
    7Who commands the sun, and it rises not; Who seals up the stars [from view];
    8Who alone stretches out the heavens and treads upon the waves and high places of the sea;
    9Who made [the constellations] the Bear, Orion, and the [loose cluster] Pleiades, and the [vast starry] spaces of the south;
    10Who does great things past finding out, yes, marvelous things without number.
 
Job 12:10
    10In His hand is the life of every living thing and the breath of all mankind.
 
Job 12:13
    13But [only] with [God] are [perfect] wisdom and might; He [alone] has [true] counsel and understanding.
 
Job 17:9
    9Yet shall the righteous (those upright and in right standing with God) hold to their ways, and he who has clean hands [who refrains from iniquity] shall grow stronger and stronger.
 
Job 22:12-13
    12Is not God in the height of heaven? And behold the height of the stars, how high they are!
    13Therefore you say, How and what does God know [about me]? Can He judge through the thick darkness?
 
Job 22:21-30
    21Acquaint now yourself with Him [agree with God and show yourself to be conformed to His will] and be at peace; by that [you shall prosper and great] good shall come to you.
    22Receive, I pray you, the law and instruction from His mouth and lay up His words in your heart.
    23If you return to the Almighty [and submit and humble yourself before Him], you will be built up; if you put away unrighteousness far from your tents,
    24If you lay gold in the dust, and the gold of Ophir among the stones of the brook [considering them of little worth],
    25And make the Almighty your gold and [the Lord] your precious silver treasure,
    26Then you will have delight in the Almighty, and you will lift up your face to God.
    27You will make your prayer to Him, and He will hear you, and you will pay your vows.
    28You shall also decide and decree a thing, and it shall be established for you; and the light [of God's favor] shall shine upon your ways.
    29When they make [you] low, you will say, [There is] a lifting up; and the humble person He lifts up and saves.
    30He will even deliver the one [for whom you intercede] who is not innocent; yes, he will be delivered through the cleanness of your hands.
 
Job 23:14
    14For He performs [that which He has] planned for me, and of many such matters He is mindful.
 
Job 26:7
    7He it is Who spreads out the northern skies over emptiness and hangs the earth upon or over nothing.
 
Job 26:8-14
    8He holds the waters bound in His clouds [which otherwise would spill on earth allat once], and the cloud is not [broken apart] under them.
    9He covers the face of His throne and spreads over it His cloud.
    10He has placed an enclosing limit [the horizon] upon the waters at the boundary between light and darkness.
    11The pillars of the heavens tremble and are astonished at His rebuke.
    12He stills or stirs up the sea by His power, and by His understanding He smites [destroys] proud Rahab [Arrogance].
    13By His breath the heavens are [cleared]; His hand pierced the [swiftly] fleeing serpent.
    14Yet these are but [a small part of His doings] the outskirts of His ways or the mere fringes of His force, the faintest whisper of His voice! Who dares contemplate or who can understand the thunders of His full, magnificent power?
 
Job 27:16-17
    16Though he [the wicked man] heaps up silver like dust and piles up clothing like clay,
    17He [the wicked] may prepare it, but the just will wear it, and the innocent will divide the silver.
 
Job 28:23-28
    23God understands the way [to Wisdom] and He knows the place of it [Wisdom is with God alone].
    24For He looks to the ends of the earth and sees everything under the heavens.
    25When He gave to the wind weight or pressure and allotted the waters by measure,
    26When He made a decree for the rain and a way for the lightning of the thunder,
    27Then He saw [Wisdom] and declared it; He established it, yes, and searched it out [for His own use, and He alone possesses it].
    28But to man He said, Behold, the reverential and worshipful fear of the Lord--that is Wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.
 
Job 33:26
    26He prays to God, and He is favorable to him, so that he sees His face with joy; for [God] restores to him his righteousness (his uprightness and right standing with God--with its joys).
 
Job 34:21
    21For [God's] eyes are upon the ways of a man, and He sees all his steps.
 
Job 34:28
    28So that they caused the cry of the poor to come to Him, and He heard the cry of the afflicted.
 
Job 36:5-7
    5Behold! God is mighty, and yet despises no one nor regards anything as trivial; He is mighty in power of understanding and heart.
    6He does not prolong the life of the wicked, but gives the needy and afflicted their right.
    7He withdraws not His eyes from the righteous (the upright in right standing with God); but He sets them forever with kings upon the throne, and they are exalted.
 
Job 36:11
    11If they obey and serve Him, they shall spend their days in prosperity and their years in pleasantness and joy.
 
Job 36:15
    15He delivers the afflicted in their affliction and opens their ears [to His voice] in adversity.
 
Job 36:23-33
   23Who has appointed God His way? Or who can say, You have done unrighteousness?
    24Remember that [by submission] you magnify God's work, of which men have sung.
    25All men have looked upon God's work; man may behold it afar off.
    26Behold, God is great, and we know Him not! The number of His years is unsearchable.
    27For He draws up the drops of water, which distil as rain from His vapor,
    28Which the skies pour down and drop abundantly upon [the multitudes of ] mankind.
    29Not only that, but can anyone understand the spreadings of the clouds or the thunderings of His pavilion?
    30Behold, He spreads His lightning against the dark clouds and covers the roots of the sea.
    31For by [His clouds] God executes judgment upon the peoples; He gives food in abundance.
    32He covers His hands with the lightning and commands it to strike the mark.
    33His thunderings speak [awesomely] concerning Him; the cattle are told of His coming storm.
 
Job 37:All
    1Indeed, [at His thunderings] my heart also trembles and leaps out of its place.
    2Hear, oh, hear the roar of His voice and the sound of rumbling that goes out of His mouth!
    3Under the whole heaven He lets it loose, and His lightning to the ends of the earth.
    4After it His voice roars; He thunders with the voice of His majesty, and He restrains not [His lightnings against His adversaries] when His voice is heard.
    5God thunders marvelously with His voice; He does great things which we cannot comprehend.
    6For He says to the snow, Fall on the earth; likewise He speaks to the showers and to the downpour of His mighty rains.
    7God seals up (stops, brings to a standstill by severe weather) the hand of every man [and now under His seal their hands are forced to inactivity], that all men whom He has made may know His doings (His sovereign power and their subjection to it).
    8Then the beasts go into dens and remain in their lairs.
    9Out of its chamber comes the whirlwind, and cold from the scattering winds.
    10By the breath of God ice is given, and the breadth of the waters is frozen over.
    11He loads the thick cloud with moisture; He scatters the cloud of His lightning.
    12And it is turned round about by His guidance, that they may do whatever He commands them upon the face of the habitable earth.
    13Whether it be for correction or for His earth [generally] or for His mercy and loving-kindness, He causes it to come.
    14Hear this, O Job; stand still and consider the wondrous works of God.
    15Do you know how God lays His command upon them and causes the lightning of His [storm] cloud to shine?
    16Do you know how the clouds are balanced [and poised in the heavens], the wonderful works of Him Who is perfect in knowledge?
    17[Or] why your garments are hot when He quiets the earth [in sultry summer] with the [oppressive] south wind?
    18Can you along with Him spread out the sky, [which is] strong as a molten mirror?
    19Tell us [Job] with what words of man we may address such a Being; we cannot state our case because we are in the dark [in the presence of the unsearchable God].
    20So shall it be told Him that I wish to speak? If a man speaks, shall he be swallowed up?
    21And now men cannot look upon the light when it is bright in the skies, when the wind has passed and cleared them.
    22Golden brightness and splendor come out of the north; [if men can scarcely look upon it, how much less upon the] terrible splendor and majesty God has upon Himself!
    23Touching the Almighty, we cannot find Him out; He is excellent in power; and to justice and plenteous righteousness He does no violence [He will disregard no right].
    24Men therefore [reverently] fear Him; He regards and respects not any who are wise in heart [in their own understanding and conceit].
 
Job 38:All
    1Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind and said,
    2Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge?
    3Gird up now your loins like a man, and I will demand of you, and you declare to Me.
    4Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Declare to Me, if you have and know understanding.
    5Who determined the measures of the earth, if you know? Or who stretched the measuring line upon it?
    6Upon what were the foundations of it fastened, or who laid its cornerstone,
    7When the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
    8Or who shut up the sea with doors when it broke forth and issued out of the womb?--
    9When I made the clouds the garment of it, and thick darkness a swaddling band for it,
    10And marked for it My appointed boundary and set bars and doors,
    11And said, Thus far shall you come and no farther; and here shall your proud waves be stayed?
    12Have you commanded the morning since your days began and caused the dawn to know its place,
    13So that [light] may get hold of the corners of the earth and shake the wickedness [of night] out of it?
    14It is changed like clay into which a seal is pressed; and things stand out like a many-colored garment.
    15From the wicked their light is withheld, and their uplifted arm is broken.
    16Have you explored the springs of the sea? Or have you walked in the recesses of the deep?
    17Have the gates of death been revealed to you? Or have you seen the doors of deep darkness?
    18Have you comprehended the breadth of the earth? Tell Me, if you know it all.
    19Where is the way where light dwells? And as for darkness, where is its abode,
    20That you may conduct it to its home, and may know the paths to its house?
    21You must know, since you were born then! Or because you are so extremely old!
    22Have you entered the treasuries of the snow, or have you seen the treasuries of the hail,
    23Which I have reserved for the time of trouble, for the day of battle and war?
    24By what way is the light distributed, or the east wind spread over the earth?
    25Who has prepared a channel for the torrents of rain, or a path for the thunderbolt,
    26To cause it to rain on the uninhabited land [and] on the desert where no man lives,
    27To satisfy the waste and desolate ground and to cause the tender grass to spring forth?
    28Has the rain a father? Or who has begotten the drops of dew?
    29Out of whose womb came the ice? And the hoary frost of heaven, who has given it birth?
    30The waters are congealed like stone, and the face of the deep is frozen.
    31Can you bind the chains of [the cluster of stars called] Pleiades, or loose the cords of [the constellation] Orion?
    32Can you lead forth the signs of the zodiac in their season? Or can you guide [the stars of] the Bear with her young?
    33Do you know the ordinances of the heavens? Can you establish their rule upon the earth?
    34Can you lift up your voice to the clouds, so that an abundance of waters may cover you?
    35Can you send lightnings, that they may go and say to you, Here we are?
    36Who has put wisdom in the inward parts [or in the dark clouds]? Or who has given understanding to the mind [or to the meteor]?
    37Who can number the clouds by wisdom? Or who can pour out the [water] bottles of the heavens
    38When [heat has caused] the dust to run into a mass and the clods to cleave fast together?
    39Can you [Job] hunt the prey for the lion? Or satisfy the appetite of the young lions
    40When they couch in their dens or lie in wait in their hiding place?
    41Who provides for the raven its prey when its young ones cry to God and wander about for lack of food?
 
Job 39:All
    1Do you know the time when the wild goats of the rock bring forth [their young]? [Or] do you observe when the hinds are giving birth? [Do you attend to all this, Job?]
    2Can you number the months that they carry their offspring? Or do you know the time when they are delivered,
    3When they bow themselves, bring forth their young ones, [and] cast out their pains?
    4Their young ones become strong, they grow up in the open field; they go forth and return not to them.
    5Who has sent out the wild donkey, giving him his freedom? Or who has loosed the bands of the swift donkey [by which his tame brother is bound--he, the shy, the swift-footed, and the untamable],
    6Whose home I have made the wilderness, and the salt land his dwelling place?
    7He scorns the tumult of the city and hears not the shoutings of the taskmaster.
    8The range of the mountains is his pasture, and he searches after every green thing.
    9Will the wild ox be willing to serve you, or remain beside your manger?
    10Can you bind the wild ox with a harness to the plow in the furrow? Or will he harrow the furrows for you?
    11Will you trust him because his strength is great, or to him will you leave your labor?
    12Will you depend upon him to bring home your seed and gather the grain of your threshing floor? [Who, Job, was the author of this strange variance in the disposition of animals so alike in appearance? Was it you?]
    13The wings of the ostrich wave proudly, [but] are they the pinions and plumage of love?
    14The ostrich leaves her eggs on the ground and warms them in the dust,
    15Forgetting that a foot may crush them or that the wild beast may trample them.
    16She is hardened against her young ones, as though they were not hers; her labor is in vain because she has no sense of danger [for her unborn brood],
    17For God has deprived her of wisdom, neither has He imparted to her understanding.
    18Yet when she lifts herself up in flight, [so swift is she that] she can laugh to scorn the horse and his rider.
    19Have you given the horse his might? Have you clothed his neck with quivering and a shaking mane?
    20Was it you [Job] who made him to leap like a locust? The majesty of his [snorting] nostrils is terrible.
    21He paws in the valley and exults in his strength; he goes out to meet the weapons [of armed men].
    22He mocks at fear and is not dismayed or terrified; neither does he turn back [in battle] from the sword.
    23The quiver rattles upon him, as do the glittering spear and the lance [of his rider].
    24[He seems in running to] devour the ground with fierceness and rage; neither can he stand still at the sound of the [war] trumpet.
    25As often as the trumpet sounds he says, Ha, ha! And he smells the battle from afar, the thunder of the captains, and the shouting of the war cry.
    26Is it by your wisdom [Job] that the hawk soars and stretches her wings toward the south [as winter approaches]?
    27Does the eagle mount up at your command and make his nest on [a] high [inaccessible place]?
    28On the cliff he dwells and remains securely, upon the point of the rock and the stronghold.
    29From there he spies out the prey; and his eyes see it afar off.
    30His young ones suck up blood, and where the slain are, there is he.
 
Job 40:All
    1Moreover, the Lord said to Job,
    2Shall he who would find fault with the Almighty contend with Him? He who disputes with God, let him answer it.
    3Then Job replied to the Lord:
    4Behold, I am of small account and vile! What shall I answer You? I lay my hand upon my mouth.
    5I have spoken once, but I will not reply again--indeed, twice [have I answered], but I will proceed no further.
    6Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind, saying,
    7Gird up your loins now like a man; I will demand of you, and you answer Me.
    8Will you also annul (set aside and render void) My judgment? Will you condemn Me [your God], that you may [appear] righteous and justified?
    9Have you an arm like God? Or can you thunder with a voice like His?
    10[Since you question the manner of the Almighty's rule] deck yourself now with the excellency and dignity [of the Supreme Ruler, and yourself undertake the government of the world if you are so wise], and array yourself with honor and majesty.
    11Pour forth the overflowings of your anger, and look on everyone who is proud and abase him;
    12Look on everyone who is proud and bring him low, and tread down the wicked where they stand [if you are so able, Job].
    13[Bury and] hide them all in the dust together; [and] shut them up [in the prison house of death].
    14[If you can do all this, Job, proving yourself of divine might] then will I [God] praise you also [and acknowledge that] your own right hand can save you.
    15Behold now the behemoth (the hippopotamus), which I created as I did you; he eats grass like an ox.
    16See now, his strength is in his loins, and his power is in the sinews of his belly.
    17He moves his tail like a cedar tree; the tendons of his thighs are twisted together [like a rope].
    18His bones are like tubes of bronze; his limbs [or ribs] are like bars of iron.
    19[The hippopotamus] is the first [in magnitude and power] of the works of God [in animal life]; [only] He Who made him provides him with his [swordlike tusks, or only God Who made him can bring near His sword to master him].
    20Surely the mountains bring him food, where all the wild animals play.
    21He lies under the lotus trees, in the covert of the reeds in the marsh.
    23Behold, if a river is violent and overflows, he does not tremble; he is confident, though the Jordan [River] swells and rushes against his mouth.
    24Can any take him when he is on the watch, or pierce through his nose with a snare?
 
Job 41:All
    1Can you draw out the leviathan (the crocodile) with a fishhook? Or press down his tongue with a cord?
    2Can you put a rope into his nose? Or pierce his jaw through with a hook or a spike?
    3Will he make many supplications to you [begging to be spared]? Will he speak soft words to you [to coax you to treat him kindly]?
    4Will he make a covenant with you to take him for your servant forever?
    5Will you play with [the crocodile] as with a bird? Or will you put him on a leash for your maidens?
    6Will traders bargain over him? Will they divide him up among the merchants?
    7Can you fill his skin with harpoons? Or his head with fishing spears?
    8Lay your hand upon him! Remember your battle with him; you will not do [such an ill-advised thing] again!
    9Behold, the hope of [his assailant] is disappointed; one is cast down even at the sight of him!
    10No one is so fierce [and foolhardy] that he dares to stir up [the crocodile]; who then is he who can stand before Me [the beast's Creator, or dares to contend with Me]?
    11Who has first given to Me, that I should repay him? Whatever is under the whole heavens is Mine. [Therefore, who can have a claim against God, God Who made the unmastered crocodile?]
    12I will not keep silence concerning his limbs, nor his mighty strength, nor his goodly frame.
    13Who can strip off [the crocodile's] outer garment? [Who can penetrate his double coat of mail?] Who shall come within his jaws?
    14Who can open the doors of his [lipless] mouth? His [extended jaws and bare] teeth are terrible round about.
    15His scales are [the crocodile's] pride, [for his back is made of rows of shields] shut up together [as with] a tight seal;
    16One is so near to another that no air can come between them.
    17They are joined one to another; they stick together so that they cannot be separated.
    18His sneezings flash forth light, and his eyes are like the [reddish] eyelids of the dawn.
    19Out of his mouth go burning torches, [and] sparks of fire leap out.
    20Out of his nostrils goes forth smoke, as out of a seething pot over a fire of rushes.
    21His breath kindles coals, and a flame goes forth from his mouth.
    22In [the crocodile's] neck abides strength, and terror dances before him.
    23The folds of his flesh cleave together; they are firm upon him, and they cannot shake [when he moves].
    24His heart is as firm as a stone, indeed, as solid as a nether millstone.
    25When [the crocodile] raises himself up, the mighty are afraid; because of terror and the crashing they are beside themselves.
    26Even if one strikes at him with the sword, it cannot get any hold, nor does the spear, the dart, or the javelin.
    27He counts iron as straw and bronze as rotten wood.
    28The arrow cannot make [the crocodile] flee; slingstones are treated by him as stubble.
    29Clubs [also] are counted as stubble; he laughs at the rushing and the rattling of the javelin.
    30His underparts are like sharp pieces of broken pottery; he spreads [grooves like] a threshing sledge upon the mire.
    31He makes the deep boil like a pot; he makes the sea like a [foaming] pot of ointment.
    32[His swift darting] makes a shining track behind him; one would think the deep to be hoary [with foam].
    33Upon earth there is not [the crocodile's] equal, a creature made without fear and he behaves fearlessly.
    34He looks all mighty [beasts of prey] in the face [without terror]; he is monarch over all the sons of pride. [And now, Job, [a]who are you who dares not arouse the unmastered crocodile, yet who dares resist Me, the beast's Creator, to My face? Everything under the heavens is Mine; therefore, who can have a claim against God?]
 
Job 42:All
    1Then Job said to the Lord,
    2I know that You can do all things, and that no thought or purpose of Yours can be restrained or thwarted.
    3[You said to me] Who is this that darkens and obscures counsel [by words] without knowledge? Therefore [I now see] I have [rashly] uttered what I did not understand, things too wonderful for me, which I did not know.
    4[I had virtually said to You what You have said to me:] Hear, I beseech You, and I will speak; I will demand of You, and You declare to me.
    5I had heard of You [only] by the hearing of the ear, but now my [spiritual] eye sees You.
    6Therefore I loathe [my words] and abhor myself and repent in dust and ashes.
    7After the Lord had spoken the previous words to Job, the Lord said to Eliphaz the Temanite, My wrath is kindled against you and against your two friends, for you have not spoken of Me the thing that is right, as My servant Job has.
    8Now therefore take seven bullocks and seven rams and go to My servant Job and offer up for yourselves a burnt offering; and My servant Job shall pray for you, for I will accept [his prayer] that I deal not with you after your folly, in that you have not spoken of Me the thing that is right, as My servant Job has.
    9So Eliphaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite went and did as the Lord commanded them; and the Lord accepted [Job's prayer].
    10And the Lord turned the captivity of Job and restored his fortunes, when he prayed for his friends; also the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before.
    11Then there came to him all his brothers and sisters and all who had known him before, and they ate bread with him in his house; and they sympathized with him and comforted him over all the [distressing] calamities that the Lord had brought upon him. Every man also gave him a piece of money, and every man an earring of gold.
    12And the Lord blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning; for he had 14,000 sheep, 6,000 camels, 1,000 yoke of oxen, and 1,000 female donkeys.
    13He had also seven sons and three daughters.
    14And he called the name of the first Jemimah, and the name of the second Keziah, and the name of the third Keren-happuch.
    15And in all the land there were no women so fair as the daughters of Job, and their father gave them inheritance among their brothers.
    16After this, Job lived 140 years, and saw his sons and his sons' sons, even to four generations.
    17So Job died, an old man and full of days.
