16 For [hoti] by [en] him [autos] were [ktizo] all things [pas] created [ktizo], that are in [en] heaven [ouranos], and [kai] that are in [epi] earth [ge], visible [horatos] and [kai] invisible [aoratos], whether [eite] they be thrones [thronos], or [eite] dominions [kuriotes], or [eite] principalities [arche], or [eite] powers [exousia]: all things [pas] were
created [ktizo] by [dia] him [autos], and [kai] for [eis] him [autos]: KJV-Interlinear
16 For by Him all things were
created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether
thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities all things have been created by Him and for Him. NASB
Him, is a reference to the Son, Jesus Christ.By Him, Christ, all things were created.All things that are in heaven and in the
Created uses the word kitzo, which is a reference to the proprietary ownership,
by the manufacturer, of the original.God the Father authored the plan, and Jesus
Christ brought it all into existence.
Jesus Christ, took the
detailed plans of the Father, and fabricated everything that exists, into
existence, in perfect accordance with the original divine plan.
The earth and the
heavens are distinguished as different from each other.Christ created the universe and everything in
it, and He also created the earth and everything in it, too.
Also, Christ created the
angels, who were created prior to the creation of the universe, which we have
And likewise, just as
the universe surrounds the earth, so also Heaven surrounds the universe.This you recall from our study in Job.The universe is as a vault, around which God
may walk its entire circumference while in heaven.The phrase is symbolic indicating that any
point in the universe is easily available and accessible by God.
As we view this
universe, we can only see a small portion into the distant stars.There is much that we can see, but far more
that we cannot see.Likewise, in our
current world, there is much that we can see, but far more that we cannot
see.And even though the huge advances
in science and technology have revealed the tremendous complexities of our
world, there is still far more that we have yet to discover, and probably never
will discover it all.
The cycles of the
universe (repeated creation and destruction) are a myth.The natural tendencies of the universe are a
myth.The ideas of natural evolution are
Jesus Christ created
all that is, and He created it from a single proprietary prototype, if you
will.The angels, the universe, the
plants and animals, even humanity were all created from one initial creation
moment, within their respect timeframes in history.
He created the angels
first, the universe second, and these were created with perfection. The angels
rebelled, and the universe and the earth were brought into a destructive
condition.The earth became null and
void.It was not created in a destroyed
state.Satan was the one who caused all
of this destruction.
Then the earth was
restored in those six days as spelled out in Genesis.Humanity was the next creation, and here we
The next major creation
after Adam and Eve was the creation of reborn man, due to faith in Christ and
the salvation due to that faith. We as believers became a regenerated and new spiritual
species, which we have also already studied.
Christ not only created
the physical things that exist, but also the non-physical things.Things such as the principles of
establishment, authorities, social norms and standards, powers, due process,
and so forth.
There is nothing in
existence that Christ did not create in its original and perfect state.
Now Satan and man have
taken nearly everything that God has created, and have twisted it into bizarre
ideas, but that is merely a function of man applying flawed thinking to the
world around him, and abusing and distorting everything, for mans own selfish
purposes, that God has provided.
However, Christ created
everything for one purpose, and that was for Himself, for eternal happiness,
for the fulfillment of the perfect plan which God designed originally in
eternity past, and ultimately for the glorification of God Himself.
Gods original intent was to have a universe filled with
life, with whom He could share a phenomenal eternity.
Man and angel ruined
that whole concept.However, God also
designed the recovery from man and angels ruinous ways, and that is where His
phenomenal brilliance enters the picture.
No matter what man and
angel try in their attempt to destroy everything, for all their efforts only
end up in destruction, God can take all of the bad, and make it all come out
good for those who have and will believe in Him.
Look around you.There is every type of stress factor that you
can imagine in life.And yet, when it is
all said and done, God can take your life, advance you to spiritual maturity,
and advance you even further in a life for eternity, beyond anything that you
can imagine.And there isn t anything
that this world can do to prevent it, so long as you want it for yourself.
Now is the time to post a prayer.
End Of Lesson
Study to show thyself approved (mature) unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing (studying/discerning), the Word of truth.
