So much talk about the universe today…
Many new age and self help gurus think the universe is god: “the universe will give you this”, “the universe will send you that”, “be grateful and the universe will respond”. All vain efforts to avoid the ONE person they’ll have to face one day.
Truth is: the universe was created … and guess by who?
By Jesus—He created all things under the Father’s authority—the entire universe came into being through the Father’s plan, Jesus’ words, and the Spirit’s release of power.
Whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom He made the worlds… Heb. 1:2 (NKJ)
This truth (Jesus the creator of worlds) answered the early church heresy that taught that Jesus was appointed heir, but was not divine. The common Greek word for “the physical world” is kosmos, but the word used here is ionus, which means “the ages.”
Jesus created the physical and spiritual worlds and, the time frames in which God’s storyline and eternal purposes unfold through the ages.
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. Col. 1:16 (NKJ) He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth—in Him. Eph. 1:10 (NKJ)
Jesus created the visible (natural, material world) and the invisible (supernatural, spiritual world). What a majestic and supreme architect He is!
Of course, there are people that don't believe in anything... are you one of them?
Do you really believe you came from monkeys? And that "all of you" and "all that surrounds you" is a lucky coincidence?
