260. Who is Jesus? He is the Creator! (First in a Series of 4 on Jesus).

In this series of You Tube audio (not video) tapes on the Person of Jesus, I hope to look at the significance of Jesus in today’s world. There are many folk throughout the world who believe that He is the only hope for this world. I agree with them. St Paul put it in summary form as he expressed these truths about Jesus in just one verse, “For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.” Rom 11:36.

Part 1 will be on Jesus The Creator. If He is indeed the Creator of all things then He cannot be ignored. These are some of the Bible passages that speak of Jesus as the Creator of the universe.

John 1:1-3, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. Joh 1:3 All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.” 
Joh 1:10 “He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him. Joh 1:11 He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him.”
Joh 1:14 “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.”
John 8:58 Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I am.”

Colossians 1:15-17 “He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16 For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities–all things were created through him and for him. 17 And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.” (Creator and Sustainer.)

Hebrews 1:1-3, “Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, 2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. 3 He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power.” (Creator and Sustainer.)

(For those wanting to have an outline I used for the talks,  you can read it on this link.      No.161. The Person of Jesus. )

Part 2 will be on Jesus The Saviour. If Jesus came from heaven to die on the cross for sinners then there are some obligations that follow for all of us.

Part 3 will be on Jesus The Lord. If He is Lord of the universe and Lord of the church then it is a serious question to ask of ourselves, “To what extent have I made Him Lord of every aspect of my life?”

Part 4 will be on Jesus The Judge. Jesus is inescapable for all of us for we must all appear before Him at the judgment seat at the end of time. (He is coming, “Ready or Not!”) How can we be prepared?
