The Lord our God is one eternal being.
Deuteronomy 6:4 “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one!
The One true God is one eternal Being who created everything in the Genesis creation, by His Spirit.
Job 33:4 The Spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life.
Job 26:13 By His Spirit He adorned the heavens; His hand pierced the fleeing serpent.
Psalm 104:30 You send forth Your Spirit, they are created; and You renew the face of the earth.
The fact that He says He created everything ALL BY HIMSELF and ALL ALONE tells us that the Spirit of God is not a person.
Isaiah 44:24 I am the Lord, who makes all things, Who stretches out the heavens all alone, Who spreads abroad the earth by Myself.
Isaiah 45:18 For the Lord is God, and he created the heavens and earth and put everything in place. He made the world to be lived in, not to be a place of empty chaos. “I am the Lord,” he says, “and there is no other.
Job 9:7-8 If he commands it, the sun won’t rise and the stars don’t shine. He alone has spread out the heavens and marches on the waves of the sea.
Nehemiah 9:6 You alone are the Lord. You made the heavens, the heaven of heavens with all their angels. You have made the earth and all that is on it, and the seas and all that is in them. You give life to all of them, and the angels of heaven bow down to You.
People have told you that it was Jesus who created Adam and Eve, but that’s not what Messiah tells us.
Matthew 19:4 Jesus answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female.
Mark 10:6 Jesus answered them, "But from the beginning of the creation, God ‘made them male and female".
Any manifestation of God, in the Old Testament, is the Spirit of God manifesting God’s presence in time and space, without God Himself leaving eternity.
Jeremiah 23:24 No one can hide so that I can’t see him,” declares the Lord. “I fill heaven and earth!” declares the Lord.
Psalm 139:7-8 How can I get away from your Spirit? Where can I go to escape from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there. If I lie down in the deepest parts of the earth, you are also there.
When you read the word (Us), in Genesis, it’s God including the heavenly host, not a second eternal person of some strange being.
Job 38:4-7 “Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding. Who determined its measurements? Surely you know! Or who stretched the line upon it? To what were its foundations fastened? Or who laid its cornerstone, when the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
We know He was talking to His heavenly host because when God actually did the work of creating Adam and Eve, He did it by Himself and all alone.
Genesis 1:27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
Genesis 5:2 He created them male and female, and blessed them and called them Mankind in the day they were created.
God created Adam and Eve in His image just like He created the Angels in His image. Angels were created in God’s image as Sons of God. They were created holy and righteous beings, just like Adam and Eve were created holy and righteous, until sin came in.God is one eternal Being, who alone created all things in Genesis and has begun, recreating all things IN heaven and ON earth through His only begotten Son. Notice very carefully the words IN and ON. He is not saying He created the Genesis creation through Messiah, which is referring to the creation of THE heaven and THE earth. The recreation of things IN heaven and ON earth is referring to the Kingdom of God.
Notice and pay very close attention to the Kingdom language being used in Colossians. Kingdom language has to do with principalities, thrones, powers, rulers and authorities, which deal with things IN heaven and ON earth. It has to do with the resurrection and the church. This is not Genesis language having to do with birds, trees, oceans and the like. This is Kingdom language referring to the age to come.
Colossians 1:15-18 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is above all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy.
The age to come i.e. the Kingdom of God, is the great hope we have in Christ. It’s spoke all over the Bible.
Matthew 12:32 Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come.
Mark 10:30 who shall not receive a hundredfold now in this time—houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions—and in the age to come, eternal life.
Many people who have been taught that God created the Genesis creation through Jesus will read into verses things that are not there, while not even seeing the things that are there. Let me give you an example.
Hebrews 1:1-2 In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the world.
People read the above verse and say, “SEE! God created the world through Jesus.” But this is not what he is saying. First of all, notice how he says, God did not speak through a Son in times past, He spoke many different ways and through prophets but not through a Son. It’s wasn’t until these last days that He is Speaking through as Son, in whom He gave the Spirit without limit so that He could speak through a Son.
Some people will say, “But it says God created the world through Jesus” and when they say that, they are referring to the Genesis creation, because that’s what they’ve been told to see. The world that God created through His Son is the age to come, Kingdom of God, not the Genesis creation.
How do we know he is referring to the world to come and not the Genesis creation? Because he tells us which world he’s been talking about. It’s the world to come.
Hebrews 2:5 God did not make angels to be the rulers of the world to come which is what we have been talking about.
The world to come is the great hope that we have in Messiah. Don't let Satan steal the hope we have in Messiah by changing God's plan.
