De Moor IV:10: Arguments for the Existence of God: Scripture

γ. Finally, the Third Class of Testimonies for the Existence of God is sought from Sacred Scripture, in which God has most clearly revealed Himself to the conviction of all. There the voice of God, testifying concerning Himself, and calling all to reverent attention, is heard, Isaiah 1:2; 45:5-7; Jeremiah 31:35: and what words God speaks there concerning Himself and His Existence, He confirms, through repeated Apparitions, which are related in the same place: through the most sublime Mysteries, exceeding the capacity of human nature, which He reveals in the same word, so that concerning the argument of Scripture one might say, Σοφίαν δὲ λαλοῦμεν, etc., σοφίαν Θεοῦ ἐν μυστηρίῳ, etc., howbeit we speak wisdom, etc., the wisdom of God in a mystery, etc., 1 Corinthians 2:6, 7: also through multiple Predictions of contingent future events, which are found in Sacred Scripture, not only related, but also proven by the event, often after the passing of many centuries; and by which the Existence of an omniscient and omnipotent God is most clearly argued, who already from the beginning declares the end:[1] by Miracles yet innumerable, by which God confirmed His Word, and all which openly demonstrate divine power.[2]

[1] Isaiah 46:10.


[2] See Mark 16:10; Acts 14:3; Hebrews 2:4.
