He Made the Worlds

“…His Son…through whom also He made the worlds” (Hebrews 1:2).

A popular, yet egregious, blasphemy of Jesus is that He is a created being, not deity. In some instances, this false belief has arisen from an incorrect understanding of the phrase “firstborn over all creation” in Colossians 1:15. In other instances, it has come about through the influence of the false belief that the human body is inherently evil. (The apostle John forcefully addresses this in First John: Anyone who denies the deity, humanity, and/or Messiahship of Jesus is antichrist—see 1 John 2:22-23, 4:2-3, 5:6-10).

One proof of Jesus’ deity is His pre-incarnate activity. He was a Person of the “Us” when humanity was created by God (Genesis 1:26-27). He was “the Word” in the beginning (John 1:2) when God created the heavens and the earth (Genesis 1:1). He was with God; He was God (John 1:1), and “all things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made” (John 1:3).

Because God so loved the world (John 3:16), the Word became flesh and dwelt among us (John 1:14) that He might—as the Lamb of God (John 1:29)—redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people (Titus 2:14). He who made all creation makes all new creations in Him (2 Corinthians 5:17).

This is the audacious love and grace of God which is the essential lifeblood of Christianity.
