This post sheds clarity on how God and Jesus are one and the same not “two”. I explained it the best I could in words. I will follow-up with a video to expound later.
When God said, “Let there be light,” in Genesis, He spoke the Word. Remember, Jesus is the Word and everything was made through Him and by Him (Colossians 1, see below) So God created the World through Jesus, the Word. When God spoke, “Let there be light,” He spoke Jesus.
Someone told me recently, “God did not create the World.” They said, Jesus did, and gave the analogy of me giving my son the ingredients to make a cake. Here is the error in that analogy. When you read John 1:1-3 (reference below) you see that God and Jesus are the same not two as me an my son are two. The correct analogy, should not have made me and my son two separate entities. Jesus and God are one, therefore you can’t exclude God from creation. The book of Genesis does not exclude God from creation, when its says in verse 1, “n the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”
Here is the correct analogy, to explain how Jesus and God are One.
When I (Kris) speak, my Words, come from me. They are an Extension of me and they get across my message to whom ever I send them to. My words are mine- my thoughts, my make up, my DNA, my voice print, they are ‘me’. That’s the same with Jesus. God created the World through Jesus. Jesus is Gods Words, “Let there be light.” He is God and God is Him.
In Colossians 1 (see below) it reads that Jesus is the image of the invisible God. John 1:1-3 (see below) states ‘the Word was God.’ John 1:14 also says that Jesus is the Word made flesh, again Jesus and God are one and the same, not two.
You cannot exclude God from the creation, all things were made through Jesus, He is God’s Words an identical extension of God. The Bible tells us on separate occasions how God sent His Word (Jesus) for healing, casting out demons, and salvation. Jesus also says if you accept me you accept the Father (John 13:20 see below). Why? Because He is God.❤️
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.” John 1:1-3
“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 before 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. For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.”
Very truly I tell you, whoever accepts anyone I send accepts me; and whoever accepts me accepts the one who sent me.”
