First Born: 5.5″ Square

May 20, 2010

“He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation;

because by means of him all other things were created in the heavens and upon the earth.”

Colossians 1:15,16

Jesus lived in heaven before he came to earth. Many times, he himself referred to this pre-human existence. (John 3:13; John 17:4,5. For more examples, see HERE)

Is he equal to God, as some believe? Well, the scripture in Colossians says that he was created, so he had a beginning. Jehovah has no beginning. The Bible clearly  teaches that the Father is greater than the Son. Jesus himself said “The Father is greater than I am.” (John 14:28) What could be plainer than that?

Jesus is God’s “only-begotten Son.” (John 3:16) This makes Jesus unique, he is the only one directly created by God Almighty. All other things were created through him.

This wonderful position and the close, loving relationship Jesus had with Jehovah for billions of years makes his willingness to be born as a human all the more outstanding.
