Colossians 2:2-3 (NIV) My purpose is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
Lord Jesus Christ is God. Like a drop of the ocean…The drop contains all the qualities of the ocean, even though it is a drop.
This “drop” in the infinite ocean of eternity is who Lord Jesus was before he “pitched his tent among us.” (Jn. 1:14-Greek Text)
Lord Jesus told us all along, “I Am the Light of the World.” (Jn. 8:12)
John 1:10- “He was in the world and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him.”
Before His incarnation, Lord Jesus was “from days of eternity.” (Micah 5:2d)
The LOGOS of God (John 1:1) is the expressed manifestation of the Holy and Infinite One, in whom the whole universe is contained and sustained by the cosmic power of His word. (Heb. 1:1-3)
The LOGOS of God is like a drop from The Infinite “in whom we live, and move and have our being.” (Acts 17:28)
The LOGOS is the expressed reflection of God in whom He sees Himself in space and time. But because this expansion comes from the inner feelings and thoughts of God as if begotten, this “Image of the Invisible God” (Col. 1:16) has an eternal relationship with His own source, The Father.
John 5:19-20 (NKJV)- Then Jesus answered and said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner. For the Father loves the Son, and shows Him all things that He Himself does; and He will show Him greater works than these, that you may marvel.
Everything God is in the infinite eternal… the LOGOS is for the universe.
Christ Jesus is The Son of God in the sense of being God’s representative and equal upon whom it has been given the express authority to judge the world as The King of Kings and Lord of Lords. (Acts 17:31; Rev. 19:16).
Lord Jesus will return to earth as the King of the Planet, in representation of God, in order to bring all things under His planetary rule for the purpose of returning all things to the Father. (1 Cor. 15:22-28; Zech. 14:9)
When Christ resurrected, not only was He “glorified” with a spiritual body, the new beginning of the universe was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit.
All those who are illumined by the Word of God and receive the Good News are guaranteed a place in this New Creation, now. 2 Corinthians 5:17 says:
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
While God the Father (The Infinite Source) dwells above the heavens (Ps. 113:4; 97:9; 148:13; Is. 40:22; et. al.), Lord Jesus is the eternal “other” in whom all things, whether visible or invisible, were created and sustained in the heavens and the earth. (Col. 1:15-17)
Christ is God because He confirmed it in His Resurrection on the third day. Death could not defeat the Source of Life. Death expended its purpose on the Cross and was destroyed. In Him the creation was re-created once again… but this time incorruptible.
Revelation 21:1-8 says
Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”
And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”
And he said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give from the spring of the water of life without payment. The one who conquers will have this heritage, and I will be his God and he will be my son. But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”
I invite you to search out the Absolute Truth. You can absolutely experience the New Creation NOW. Just Call out to Christ with your whole heart. If you seek Him you will find Him, when you seek Him with all your heart.
When you do, Lord Jesus will reveal Himself to you as He did with me.
