Colossians 1 verse 18

18 He is the head of the body, the church, as well as the beginning, the firstborn from among the dead, so that he himself may become first in all things.

Key words and phrases:

Head – the top, the authority, the king

Church- the universal church of all believers

The beginning – He began all things, He is the Alpha,  He had no beginning of days, He is from everlasting

Firstborn – first in rank and order

From the dead – His resurrection

First in all things – first in all things 


Listening prayer method. 

Is Christ first in the Church?

Bob, I am the Head of the church. Be careful of any church who places any man or woman to be more important than Me. Beware of any religion that does not exhalt Me as Head. Beware of churches that set policy in contradiction to My revealed will. 

Your hope is in Me and my resurrection. Your sins were overcome, and some day I will rise all believer’s up again to an eternal inheritance. 

Is Christ first in Your Life?

Bob, am I first in your life?  Do you put Me first in your decisions and actions? Are there sins in your life where you are ignoring My instructions?  Fight against those sins and forsake them. Be ye holy for I am holy. I have grace to forgive. I paid for your sins. 

Why do you worry?  Why are you discontent?  Am I not reigning in your heart?  Why do you think you need anyone or anything else for your happiness?  I arose that I may become first in all things to you and to the church.
