Cause and Effect

For as the churning of milk produces butter, And wringing the nose produces blood, So the forcing of wrath produces strife.

(Proverbs 30:33) NKJV

Understanding cause and effect, logic and reason, is critical in successfully deducing how the Bible can account for all of the physical evidence and empirical observations of the universe.

The Milk of the Word

Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings, As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.

(1 Peter 2:1-3) KJV

If a baby needs milk to survive before it can tolerate solid food, has this been patterned after the processes which took place on the first and second days of the creation of the universe?

A Copy and a Shadow

Every high priest is appointed to present offerings and animal sacrifices to God, and so our High Priest must also have something to offer. If he were on earth, he would not be a priest at all, since there are priests who offer the gifts required by the Jewish Law.

(Hebrews 9:23) Good News Translation

Pattern and process repeat themselves in creation. We’re told that things on Earth are copied from things in the heavens. Can we use this truth to understand how Jesus turned water into wine?

Truth is Light, Darkness is Evil

And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

(Genesis 1:2) ESV

Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour.

(Matthew 27:45) ESV

We make a connection between the darkness in Genesis 1:2 and the darkness that fell upon the world while Jesus hung on the cross. This is the sacrifice which had to be made to pay the price of our redemption, the propitiation.
