“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth”. (Genesis 1:1)
God is the beginning of all things. There was nothing created that was not created by God. He existed in Himself and created all things in the heavens and on the earth for Himself.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. (John 1:1-3)
- The Word is God Himself
- All things came into existence through Him
- And without Him was not even one thing made that has come into being.
And just before you wonder about human inventions. Please note that every human inventions came into existence out of that which was already existing.
“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. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the pre-eminence.” (Colossians 1:16-18)
- The things that are now visible for us to see came out of the invisible realm – the realm of God –
- All things came through God
- All things are created for God
- All things consists in God
- God is the head of all things – the beginning and the end of everything.
Therefore, HE has final say, He has the ultimate authority and pre-eminence over all things.
The simple submission here today is that, only the manufacturer has the right to describe its products and its use. God made the heavens and the earth and all that is therein, therefore, only He has the right to define and describe the essence of everything He created including the man and the woman. Any human definition that is embraced regarding any of God’s creations will only damage and destroy.
And God in His final statement on His creation declared that all that He made is VERY GOOD!
“And God saw everything that He had made, and behold, it was very good (suitable, pleasant) and He approved it completely….” (Genesis 1:31) AMPC
In order for any human not to malfunction, it is imperative that he or she consults the CREATOR’S MANUAL to discover the purpose, the principles and the ethics of his/her existence. Maximum functionality is only possible when we follow the manufacturer’s manual.
“Know (perceive, recognize, and understand with approval) that the Lord is God! It is He Who has made us, not we ourselves [and we are His]! We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.” (Psalm 100:3) AMPC
We are His!
