Do We Reverence Christ The Creator?
Bob, listen to Me. I am the Christ. Learn of me because I am the image of the invisible God. When you learn of Me, then you will learn more about God. I am supreme, and I have rank over creation because I was before all things. I have existed from everlasting. I created all things in heaven and earth. All human and heavenly authorities were made by Me. I made them all for my purposes. I am sustaining all things. Everything in the universe is being held together by Me. I AM.
I love you. I died for your sins. I rose again. I gave you faith to believe in Me. Therefore, be humble, be thankful, glorify Me with your life, and trust Me! Everything is for a reason. Everything is for a purpose. Everything is for Me.
