Jesus Christ: The Revelation of God’s Power and Glory

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth (Gen 1:1). God said: “Let there be light and there was light” (Gen 1:2). Also in the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God (John 1:1). All things was made through Jesus. Nothing that came into existence without it being created by Jesus (John 1:3). Thus God created through Jesus. He demonstrated the same power of creation when He was on earth. Paul write in Col. 1:6 that literary everything visible and invisible, powers and authorities, spirit and angels was created by Jesus. Not a single molecule came into existence without being created by Jesus. Paul also wrote that Jesus is the image, direct presentation of God to such an extend that He is equal to God and in no sense less than God (Col 1:15).

How did Jesus demonstrate this creation power while He was on earth?

We saw that God created by speaking: “Let there be light” and it was so in an instant. Let us look what Jesus did when He was on earth.

When healing a leaper Jesus said: “Be clean”, and immediately his leprosy was healed (Matt 8:3). During a storm on the sea with His disciples He said: “Peace, be still”, and immediately there was a great calm. His disciples marveled because even the wind and seas obey Him (Mark 4:39-4). When healing Lazarus who was dead for four days and his body already started to decay and smelled He said: “Lazarus come out”, and immediately the dead man was restored to full health and the flesh of his body created anew.

Jesus demonstrated by His earthly ministry that He was the one who created heaven and earth. He could speak things into existence in the same manner as He created everything in the beginning. Nothing came into existence without God spoken it into existence. The mode of creation was also demonstrated by Jesus. In every case where Jesus did a miracle, he spoke things into existence and immediately it happened. Jesus demonstrated that God has power to created something from nothing in moments.

When Jesus is revealed to a person through the Word, he will understand Jesus this manner. The creation power of Jesus will be evident to Him. There are many people who doubt that God created in 6 literal days. They believe God used evolutionary processes over thousand or billions of years to created the heavens and earth. This is not what Jesus came to demonstrated when He was on earth, seeing that it is He who created everything. Jesus even taught His disciples how His return will be. It would be in the same manner. It will happen in an instant and the current heaven and earth will be destroyed and a new heaven and earth will be created in front of our eyes.

The question is, if you know Jesus, why can you not see His power and glory? That He did create and that He demonstrated His power to created. That He demonstrated how things will happen in the future in the same power.
