Hebrews 10:7 
[7] Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God.

Psalm 40:7
[7] Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me,

God is outside of time. What sets Him apart is that He declares the end from the beginning. There were hundreds of prophecies written about Jesus before He was ever born, and He fulfilled them all.

John 1:1 & 14 …. Jesus is the manifested Word of God.

Isaiah 46:9-10
[9] Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, [10] Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure

Genesis 3:1-15,21
[1] Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? [2] And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: [3] But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. [4] And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: [5] For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. [6] And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. [7] And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons. [8] And they heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God amongst the trees of the garden. [9] And the Lord God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou? [10] And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself. [11] And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat? [12] And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat. [13] And the Lord God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat. [14] And the Lord God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: [15] And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. [21] Unto Adam also and to his wife did the Lord God make coats of skins, and clothed them.

The ultimate fear that rests at the bottom of all fears is the idea that you cannot count on the Word of God. The enemy will use trials to get you to doubt. But God is trustworthy. His Word is true, and you can always count on it.

Romans 2:14-15
For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves: Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;)

Isaiah 41:4
[4] Who hath wrought and done it , calling the generations from the beginning? I the Lord , the first, and with the last; I am he. (Genesis 5:1)

 

Psalm 8:4
What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?

God’s love is what motivated Him to send His Son.

1 Corinthians 15:21-22
[21] For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. [22] For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

Romans 5:14
Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam’s transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.

Sin and the affect of sin caused shame and separated from God.

Genesis 5:1…States the generations of Adam. God used the lineage of Adam to declare the end from the beginning.

Name               Means
Adam                man
Seth                 appointed
Enos                mortal
Cainan            sorrow
Mahalaleel    the blessed God
Jared               shall come down
Enoch             teaching
Methuselah  His death shall bring
Lamech          the despairing
Noah               comfort and rest

When you put the name meanings together, they form this sentence:
“Man was appointed mortal sorrow, but the blessed God shall come down teaching: His death shall bring the despairing comfort and rest.” 

God declares the end from the beginning. Its what gives His word integrity.

John 17:3
Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.

From the very beginning God had a plan to save man.

How you view the world is going to be based on how you view the Word of God.
