OUR LORD BY WHOM ALL THINGS CONSIST
The apostle Paul in Colossians 1 verse 16 - 18, lays out the credentials and ascriptions merited by the Lord Jesus Christ.
For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
And he is before all things, and by 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 might have the preeminence.
This revealing passage centers on the line, "And He is before all things and by Him all things consist"
The Lord Jesus is being shown as occupying the pinnacle or apex position in all creation and further to that, all creation is held together by Him.
The incredible power of the Lord our God is demonstrated in His singular ability to acrete all forces of the Spiritual realm and all forces of nature into a single system over which He has absolute authority and upholds by His might.
Let us honour and revere the great God of heaven and earth.
