26. Only God is the Holy, Holy, Holy One Whose glory fills the whole earth:

Isaiah 6:1-3: In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and the train of His robe filled the temple. Above Him stood the seraphim. Each had six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. And one called to another and said: “Holy, Holy, Holy is the LORD of hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory!”

John 12:37-41: Though He [Jesus] had done so many signs before them, they still did not believe in Him, so that the word spoken by the prophet Isaiah might be fulfilled: “Lord, who has believed what he heard from us, and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?” Therefore they could not believe. For again Isaiah said, “He has blinded their eyes and hardened their heart, lest they see with their eyes, and understand with their heart, and turn, and I would heal them.” Isaiah said these things because he saw His [Jesus'] glory and spoke of Him [Jesus].

27. Only God possesses everlasting dominion:

Daniel 7:13-14: I saw in the night visions, and behold, with the clouds of heaven there came one like a son of man, and He came to the Ancient of Days and was presented before Him. And to Him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him; His dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and His kingdom one that shall not be destroyed.

Mark 14:61-64: But He remained silent and made no answer. Again the high priest asked Him, “Are you the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?” And Jesus said, “I am, and you will see the Son of Man seated at the right hand of Power, and coming with the clouds of heaven.” And the high priest tore his garments and said, “What further witnesses do we need?

Romans 14:10: For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God

2 Corinthians 5:10: For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ

29. Only God will judge everyone:

To Him be honor and eternal dominion. Amen.
