All things were created through Him and for Him
Colossians 1:16 -
For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.
Life and how it started, has always intrigued man. Man always wanted to know his origin as to how he has been created or form even though he believed in a creator or not. One of the most interesting things I enjoy about Bible study is studying God's creation through the Bible. It is so awesome that I get totally lost and am truly humbled in awe of Who God is. People normally think science goes against the Bible but when we get into the root of science and the pure understanding of the Bible (void of the corruption that the false Church induced which is yet believe as part of the Bible), we find that science proves the Bible and Bible give a better understanding of science.
One preacher very beautifully said there are 3 things of which our knowledge needs to be right. If any one of them we get wrong automatically it affects the other 2 and the knowledge of them too gets corrupted. These 3 things are God, man and the universe. If we understand God rightly we will understand man and the universe. If we understand man rightly we will understand God and the universe. If we understand the universe rightly we will understand God and man. Similarly if we have the wrong understanding of anyone of them then automatically we start to have the wrong understanding of the other 2.
I am so grateful to God for finding it worthy to teach me many of these things and giving me the ability to understand things which I would not have done so in my wildest dream or even imagined them.
One of the best things that the Lord opened my mind to was to image study, to understand the design or image in which God has created the various things in nature and understanding their purpose, not only the things of this world but even many things of the Heavens. For the things of the Heavens are spirit beings and can be understood by man only by their designs.
According to science, in this world all things that are visible are not even 30 to 40percent of the things existing (some claim it as just 4percent). The things that are invisible are referred to by science as 'dark matter'.
When we understand the Bible and the Kingdom of God (creation), through it we understand this natural life and come to realize how temporary this natural world is. We also realize the purpose of man, as putting gold through fire so as to have only the pure gold for the making of the Glorious Temple, the Glorious Temple being no monument but the Lord - God the Son Himself.
Life takes a total new meaning when we see life through God the Son. God being spirit we cannot see or understand well, but Jesus the humbled human form of Him we can and it is only through Jesus we come to know Him and be part of Him. So life is only and only through Jesus Christ.
God the Son existed since beginning as part of the Father, yet it was later that the Father revealed Him as an individual and gave Him an identity of His own. God the Father desires His Son be glorified and we too being part of Him also be glorified in Him.
So this natural life is nothing but a process of purification. The less of this natural word is in us the more of us will be in the real spirit world - His Kingdom. We were created through Him and are created for Him.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord, we are humbled when we come to know the Truth. When we know You and your Kingdom then this world and the things of the world looks of no value. This creation is just a process of purification of eliminating the darkness with light for You are Light and only when we become light like You can we be part of You. You came as Jesus to show is the Light and only by your Spirit we too can have this Light in us and thus be a part of You. Lord, work in us and purify us, take the worldly things out of us and let us have more and more of your Kingdom in us...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.
