In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.(Genesis 1:1-2) ESV
We can take what we deduced about Alpha and Omega to find first cause. This is the reason why the universe exists. It’s also the origin of the deep, a body of water which predates creation.

- IF Alpha, male, God the father
- AND Omega, female, God the Holy Spirit
- THEN Alpha and Omega, neuter, the only begotten, God the Son, Jesus Christ
always learning and never able to arrive at a knowledge of the truth.(2 Timothy 3:7) ESV
Gravity decreases with altitude as one rises above the Earth’s surface because of a greater distance from the Earth’s center. – Wikipedia
A lot of what we know about gravity was unknown to Sir Isaac Newton, like the seemingly simple and innocuous fact above. If, according to Newton’s premise, gravity is a property of matter, why would the effect of it be concentrated at the center of a body?

Therefore thus says the Lord of hosts concerning the prophets:(Jeremiah 23:15) ESV
“Behold, I will feed them with bitter food
and give them poisoned water to drink,
for from the prophets of Jerusalem
ungodliness has gone out into all the land.”
Reaping what we sow as bitter consequences for bad decisions is caused by misrepresenting God and leading people astray with false teachings. Jeremiah made this charge against false prophets in his time.

Who is the man so wise that he can understand this? To whom has the mouth of the Lord spoken, that he may declare it? Why is the land ruined and laid waste like a wilderness, so that no one passes through? And the Lord says: “Because they have forsaken my law that I set before them, and have not obeyed my voice or walked in accord with it, but have stubbornly followed their own hearts and have gone after the Baals, as their fathers taught them. Therefore thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: Behold, I will feed this people with bitter food, and give them poisonous water to drink. I will scatter them among the nations whom neither they nor their fathers have known, and I will send the sword after them, until I have consumed them.”(Jeremiah 9:12-16) ESV
Gall as an effect is bitter consequences that we have to endure. The cause may take the form of immorality, idolatry or any other sin. The consequences are widespread and affect whole communities.

Beware lest there be among you a man or woman or clan or tribe whose heart is turning away today from the Lord our God to go and serve the gods of those nations. Beware lest there be among you a root bearing poisonous and bitter fruit, one who, when he hears the words of this sworn covenant, blesses himself in his heart, saying, ‘I shall be safe, though I walk in the stubbornness of my heart.’ This will lead to the sweeping away of moist and dry alike. The Lord will not be willing to forgive him, but rather the anger of the Lord and his jealousy will smoke against that man, and the curses written in this book will settle upon him, and the Lord will blot out his name from under heaven.(Deuteronomy 29:18-20) ESV
Gall can be brazen boldness coupled with impudent assurance and insolence. Someone heard the Bible being preached but decided that they’re immune. Their attitude was that it’s irrelevant and doesn’t refer to them.

See to it that no one makes a prey of you by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the universe, and not according to Christ. (Colossians 2:8) RSV
First cause isn’t the same as the Big Bang. The Big Bang, or more accurately we should say nucleosynthesis, is an effect, not a cause. Popular Science (SciPop) promotes speculation about a possible first cause.

Now in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went to them, walking on the sea. And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, “It is a ghost!” And they cried out for fear.(Matthew 14:25-26) NKJV
Pastors and preachers talk about how Peter started walking on water but when he took his eyes off Jesus he began to sink. We (that’s me and the Holy spirit) want to make this passage about Jesus, not Peter.

For the king had merchant ships at sea with the fleet of Hiram. Once every three years the merchant ships came bringing gold, silver, ivory, apes, and monkeys.(1 Kings 10:22) KJV
“Wooly mammoth and giant bisons”. Mammoth and other creatures were preserved in ice which formed when the waters of Noah’s flood evaporated. Evaporation causes cooling.

And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.(Matthew 7:25) KJV
Descriptions of geological periods usually start with a statement on climate. It’s a subtle way to pay homage to the fact that a vast amount of water moved a vast amount of sediment.

Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.(Genesis 3:16) KJV
If we understand cause and effect, then the effect is God placing the woman under the authority of the man, therefore the cause was her having formerly had authority over him. That’s logic. Adam chose to submit to his wife when she handed him the forbidden fruit. Whether it was intended or not, at that time she was obviously the leader.
