LibraryThat the Self-Existent Being must be All-Powerful.
The self-existent being, the supreme cause of all things, must of necessity have infinite power.--This proposition is evident, and undeniable. For since nothing (as has been already proved,) can possibly be self-existent, besides himself; and consequently all things in the universe were made by him, and are entirely dependent upon him; and all the powers of all things are derived from him, and must therefore be perfectly subject and subordinate to him; it is manifest that nothing can make any difficulty …
Samuel Clarke—A Discourse Concerning the Being and Attributes of God
Use to be Made of the Doctrine of Providence.
"Seek First the Kingdom of God," &C.
The Host of Heaven and of Earth.
For thick clouds swirl about him, and he cannot see us. He is way up there, walking on the vault of heaven.'
Dark clouds surround him. Righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.
The LORD spread a cloud above them as a covering and gave them a great fire to light the darkness.
