Key Scriptures

Genesis 1:26

Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”

Psalm 105:17–19

He sent a man before them— Joseph—who was sold as a slave. They hurt his feet with fetters, He was laid in irons.

Until the time that his word came to pass, The word of the Lord tested him.

1 Thessalonians 5:19–21

Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophecies. Test all things; hold fast what is good.
