Romans 1 Genesis
For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are
clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead;
so that they are without excuse:
Romans Chapter 1 (vs. 20)
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
Bible Book 1 (Genesis 1:1)
Romans opens with the great declaration of the simple truth that everyone everywhere knows - or knew
before their minds were darkened by sin - that God
Almighty is Creator of all. Here is the full text where the Lord condemns all unbelief (Romans 1.16f):
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation
to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written,
The just shall live by faith.
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness
of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it
For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by
the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but
became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and
to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts,
to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the
Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
The phrase translated as "The Creator" is the accusative form of Ho Ktisas, which integrates with
Revelation 1 and the revelation of the Alpha and Omega:
= 801 (Alpha Omega)
This is one of the most significant alphanumeric identies to be found in the intrinsic alphanumeric structure
of the Greek language. It coheres perfectly with the explicit declaration of the Creator Himself, as it is
written in Revelation 1 (vs. 8):
I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is
to come, the Almighty.
This coheres with the great Spoke 1 theme of Creation, both
as a theme of Romans (Book 45 on Spoke 1) and as a theme of Romans 1 correpsonding to Genesis.
