Colossians 1:16 ( J. B. Phillips translation ) Now Christ is the visible expression of the invisible God. He existed before creation began, for it was through him that everything was made, whether spiritual or material, seen or unseen. Through him, and for him, also, were created power and dominion, ownership and authority. In fact, every single thing was created through, and for him. He is both the first principle and the upholding principle of the whole scheme of creation. And now he is the head of the body which is composed of all Christian people. Life from nothing began through him, and life from the dead began through him, and he is, therefore, justly called the Lord of all. It was in him that the full nature of God chose to live, and through him God planned to reconcile in his own person, as it were, everything on earth and everything in Heaven by virtue of the sacrifice of the cross.
This first statement here really hit me; Yeshua is the visible expression of the invisible God and Creator. As I stated last month, last year, there are invisible beings all around us that we cannot see unless the Lord of Creation allows us or opens our eyes to see. I do believe that we live in a world that is far, far more than what we see with our eyes. Elijah prayed that the Lord would open the eyes of his servant to see the angelic armies that surrounded them. There are 280 references to angels in the New King James Version of the bible. Psalm 8:5 For You have made him a little lower than the angels, and You have crowned him with glory and honor. Now, I have to ask, just what will the Lord have to say and show to us in this coming season of 2016. Personally, I am walking in expectation of revelations.
