“So, after making many attempts” to attack, discourage and frighten St. Antony of the Desert, “they [the demons] gnashed their teeth at him… And the Lord in this also forgot not Antony’s wrestling, but came to his defense. For looking up, Antony saw as it were the roof opening and a beam of light coming down to him. And the demons suddenly disappeared, and the soreness of his body ceased at once, and the building was again sound.” (St. Antony of the Desert, p. 14.)
St. Athanasius, 4th century: “First of all believe that God is one, who created all things and fitted them together, and made all things to be out of that which is not” (On the Incarnation, 3, 1).
