WHAT DOES COLOSSIANS 1:15-17 TRULY MEAN?


SPELLING EDITED


WHAT DOES COLOSSIANS 1:15-17 TRULY MEAN?


Does Colossians 1:15-17 teach us that Jesus created everything that exists? Does Colossians 1:15 teach us that Jesus was the firstborn of every creature in eternity past? 


Colossians 1:15.


“Who is the image of the invisible God, the FIRSTBORN of EVERY creature:


Now, all Christians certainly know that some Christians INTERPRET Colossians 1:15 to mean that Jesus pre-existed in eternity past but they do not all agree as to HOW Jesus pre-existed in eternity past.

In other words, some Christians interpret Colossians 1:15 to mean that God the Son pre-existed in eternity past WITHOUT having a beginning. And their line of reason is that if Jesus did NOT pre-exist in eternity past AS God the Son then how did Jesus create everything that exists? But to me, those Christians overlook or simply ignore the word “BORN” in the word “FIRSTBORN” which means that Jesus had a BEGINNING.

And that is why other Christians interpret Colossians 1:15 to mean that the SON OF God was BEGOTTEN by God in eternity past to be the FIRSTBORN of EVERY creature. For you see, they know and understand that the words “BORN” and “BEGOTTEN” on a certain DAY demand that the one begotten on a certain day means that was the DAY that person came into existence as the ETERNAL Son of God. You do not literally exist BEFORE you were BORN INTO existence. And the Scriptures CLEARLY teach us that Jesus was BEGOTTEN by Almighty God the Father. But then these Christians who understand the true meaning of the word begotten incorrectly INTERPRET verses 16 and 17 as Jesus being the CREATOR of everything that exists. But to me, those Christians overlook or ignore that only God can create. So they say that the Son OF God has always been God the Son in eternity past. And their line of reasoning is that if the Son OF God is NOT God the Son in eternity past then how could a mere CREATURE have created everything that exists. They fail to see that the CONTEXT is speaking about AFTER the cross when te HUMAN Jesus became the firstborn from the DEAD to become the BEGINNING of god's NEW creation, the firstborn among many BRETHREN.

In other words, BOTH of these groups of Christians are INTERPRETING Colossians 1:15 BY their own personal INTERPRETATION of Colossians 1:16,17. Let us go ahead and read Colossians 1:15-17 and then I will explain the TRUE meaning of all three of these verses in the LIGHT of the WHOLE word of Almighty God.


Colossians 1:15-17.


“Who is the image of the invisible God, the FIRSTBORN of EVERY creature

16.  For BY him were ALL THINGS CREATED, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: ALL THINGS were created BY him, and FOR him

17.  And he is BEFORE ALL THINGS, and BY him ALL THINGS CONSIST.”


Now, when these three verses are read out of their context and without comparing Scripture with Scripture to allow Scripture to interpret itself, then it certainly appears as if the IMAGE of God, the FIRSTBORN of EVERY creature, is the creator of all things.

But does it sound logical for you that a CREATURE that is born of the invisible God so that he can be seen is the CREATOR of everything that exists?

Does it sound logical to you that if the IMAGE of God is BEFORE ALL things would mean that the one BORN of God is BEFORE God? I mean, verse 17 does state as a fact that he is BEFORE ALL things and BY HIM ALL things CONSIST. So if you are consistent in interpreting the Scriptures then that that would mean that Jesus is BEFORE the Father who the Son was begotten from. And that is impossible. Therefore, these statements of fact must mean something other than what they SEEM to be saying when your mind has been taught by the church denomination that you attend as to what these verses mean to them.

Please understand that I am being a little sarcastic for a REASON and no offense is intended. My point is that ALL verses of Scripture must AGREE with each other. And that means that we simply cannot ignore other verses of Scripture. And that means that whatever INTERPRETATION we conclude that Colossians 1:15-17 means, that that INTERPRETATION must AGREE with every verse in the Bible or that INTERPRETATION is NOT the CORRECT interpretation. 

So then, do you just believe your own personal INTERPRETATION of these three verses alone as your foundation to INTERPRET all the other verses in the Bible? What if you find that your interpretation CONTRADICTS other verses of Scripture? Are you OPEN to adjust your interpretation of Colossians 1:15-17 if I can show you directly from the Scriptures that Almighty God Yahweh the Father is the creator of everything that exists INCLUDING the Son of MAN, Jesus?  

As you read the following verses, please follow the highlighted words in orange that refer to Almighty God Yahweh the Father and the highlighted words yellow that refer to Yahweh’s Son, Jesus. And other highlighted words in blue and green are for emphasis.


Do you believe Ephesians 2:8-10?


“For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God

9.  Not of works, lest any man should boast. 

10.  For we are His workmanship, created IN (G1722) Christ Jesus unto good works, which God has before ordained that we should walk in them.” 


So then, from these three verses of Scripture, we can clearly see that ALL who BELIEVE IN Jesus Christ receive the GIFT of salvation from God who CREATED us who believe IN Jesus Christ to become God’s NEW creation of NEW CREATURES to do good works. Do you agree with this interpretation of Ephesians 2:8-10? (Also, please notice the Strong’s number (G1722) after the word “IN” that is in the phrase “created IN Christ Jesus” This is the same Greek word used in Colossians 1:16 that is translated as the preposition “BY” (G1722)  in the phrase “For BY him were all things created”. Also, BOTH of the English words “things” in Colossians 1:16 and 17 are NOT in the original Greek text. The word “things was ADDED by the translators in BOTH verses 16 and 17. The LITERAL translation of Colossians 1:16 reads That IN him IS created THE ALL…” We will come back to this in-depth word study to actually look up the meanings of these words from a concordance after we compare Scripture with Scripture that uses the SAME Greek word “en G1722” that is translated as the preposition BY him in Colossians 1:16.

Do you believe that if it was not for Jesus suffering and dying on the cross then there would be NO NEW creatures created IN Jesus Christ by God?


Do you believe 2 Corinthians 5:17-21. 


“Therefore if any man is IN (“en” G1722) Christ, he is a NEW CREATURE: old things are passed away; behold, ALL things have become new. (Again, in the LITERAL translation the English word “things is NOT found in the original Greek text. The literal translation reads “behold THE ALL has become new”. In other words, THE ALL of whosoever BELIEVE IN Jesus are become NEW CREATURES who are being created IN Jesus Christ BY Almighty God Yahweh the Father and NOT that everything in the entire universe was created BY God the Son, Jesus, in eternity past)

18.  And all things are OF God, who has RECONCILED us to Himself BY (“dia” G1223) Jesus Christ, and has given to us the ministry of reconciliation; (Again, in the LITERAL translation the English word “things” is NOT found in the original Greek text. The literal translation reads “Yet THE ALL out of THE God THE one reconciling us…”)

19.  To wit, that God was IN ( “en” G1722) Christ, reconciling the world unto Himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and has committed unto us the word of reconciliation. 

20.  Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be you reconciled to God(And not be you reconciled to Jesus)

21.  For He has made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God IN him.”


Here we can clearly see that it is Almighty God Yahweh the Father who is still yet RECONCILING the ALL who believe IN Jesus Christ as the Messiah, the atonement for their sins. Do you believe this interpretation of 2 Corinthians 5:17-21? Do you believe that God created you to be a NEW CREATURE IN Jesus Christ?


Do you believe Colossians 1:21-23 which is the very CONTEXT of Colossians 1:15-17?


Colossians 1:21-23.


“And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now has He RECONCILED 

22.  IN (“en” G1722) the BODY OF of his FLESH through DEATH, (NOT God's own flesh, but rather in the body of flesh of His HUMAN Son, Jesus) to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight: 

23.  If you continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which you have heard, and which was preached to EVERY CREATURE  which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister;”


The words “EVERY CREATURE” that is used in verse 23 that are referring to HUMAN PEOPLE are the SAME Greek words used in verse 15 when speaking of Jesus as the FIRSTBORN of EVERY CREATURE. And if you do your own word search on the word “creature” in the KJV you will find that 11 of the 13 times that the word “creature” is found in the New Testament it refers to HUMAN PEOPLE. And we know that Jesus called himself the Son of MAN nearly twice as many times as the phrase “the Son of God” is found in the Bible. And for sure, Jesus was not an animal creature. So that only leaves two possible choices. Either Jesus was a divine eternal creature or Jesus was made in our likeness to be a HUMAN CREATURE. Let us read the CONTEXT of Colossians 1:15 which includes Colossians 1:21-23 again to see if the SAME Greek words speaking of us as HUMAN creatures are also referring to the FIRSTBORN of EVERY CREATURE is also referring to Jesus as a HUMAN CREATURE.


Colossians 1:21-23.


“And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now has He RECONCILED 

22.  IN (“en” G1722) the BODY OF of his FLESH through DEATH, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight: (In other words, Almighty God Yahweh the Father RECONCILED the ALL of whosoever BELIEVES IN (“en” G1722) the BODY OF of his FLESH through DEATH, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight. This is speaking of the Son od MAN, the human Son of God. It is NOT saying that whosoever believes in the divine immortal body of God the Son that died on the cross. The Scripture states as a FACT with no interpretation needed that it was the BODY of his FLESH that died for the sins of the whole world so the WHOSOEVER believes the TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ will be RECONCILED to God IF we endure unto the END to be saved. And we know from the Scriptures that it was the Son of MAN who was lifted up on the cross, according to John 3:14, John 8:28, and John 12:34. Jesus was MADE Lord and god AFTER the cross by his God and Father HIGHLY EXALTING His human Son, Jesus)

23.  If you CONTINUE in the faith grounded and settled and be NOT moved AWAY from the hope of the GOSPEL, which you have heard, and which was preached to EVERY CREATURE  which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister;”


Can you not see that it is Almighty God Yahweh the Father who is the one that does the CREATING of His NEW CREATION of PEOPLE IN, THROUGH, BY, BECAUSE OF and FOR the SAKE OF His SON Jesus Christ the FIRSTBORN of EVERY CREATURE as the BEGINNING of the CREATION of God?, as in God's NEW creation of righteous humans who will never rebel against Him like Lucifer and the fallen angels did. Again, Jesus is the FIRST faithful WITNESS and all the faithful saints will join Jesus as faithful witnesses against Satan and the fallen angels to JUDGE the fallen angel along with Jesus. The Greek word translated as the great cloud of WITNESS in Hebrew 12: 1 is the same Greek word translated as Jesus being the true and faithful WITNESS in Revelation 3:14. And this Greek word means a witness in the JUDICIAL sense. God will judge the world BY the MAN Jesus, according to Acts 17:31. Have you ever wondered WHY we will JUDGE the angels?

So HOW did Jesus become the IMAGE OF the invisible God to be the FIRSTBORN of EVERY CREATURE? The answer is in the CONTEXT of Colossians 1:15-17 in verses 21-23 which we just read. It was the Son of MAN, Jesus, who laid down his own life to die on the cross FOR us that made it possible for Almighty God Yahweh the Father to RECONCILE the ALL of whosoever BELIEVES IN Jesus as their Lord and Savior to be RECONCILED to God to become God’s NEW creation of PEOPLE, as in a NEW PEOPLE, a peculiar generation. It was NOT Almighty God HIMSELF who died on the cross. It was NOT God the Son who died on the cross. In fact, it was NOT the SON OF God who died on the cross.

You see, Jesus BECAME the BEGINNING of God’s creation to become the first human being to ever be born-again from the DEAD to be GIVEN the divine nature of immortality to never die again BY FIRST being a TRUE and FAITHFUL witness unto God.


Please read Revelation 3:14.


“And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things says the Amen, the FAITHFUL and TRUE WITNESS, the BEGINNING OF the CREATION OF God;” 


Now, no matter how you INTERPRET Revelation 3:14, it is Almighty God Yahweh the Father who IS the CREATOR. For you see, IF the word “creation” is interpreted as the original creation in eternity past, Almighty God Yahweh the Father is the creator, as in the OWNER OF the creation that his Son will INHERIT. And IF the word “creation” TRULY means God’s NEW CREATION of PEOPLE who are CREATED IN Jesus Christ because he was FAITHFUL to OBEY all the WILL of his God and Father Yahweh to die on the cross for the sins of the whole world, then God promised to give PEOPLE to his Messiah for his life he offered on the cross.


Please read Isaiah 43:3-5. 


“For I am the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior: (Or I, Almighty God Yahweh am YOUR God, and YOU, the Holy One of Israel are my Salvation) I gave Egypt for YOUR ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for YOU. (Or I, Yahweh your God gave the world to you because of your redemption price, Ethiopia and Sheba for you)

4.  Since YOU were precious in my sight, (And since) YOU have been honorable, and I have loved YOU: THEREFORE, (Or for this very reason that you, my Holy One of Israel, my salvation, because you have pleased me) I will give MEN for YOU, and PEOPLE for (Or because you gave) YOUR life

5.  Fear not: for I am with YOU: I will bring YOUR seed from the east, and gather YOURS from the west;” 


So then, the SON OF God will not only INHERIT the world to come but Jesus will ALSO be given PEOPLE to rejoice with who got the VICTORY over Satan through faith in him and in God’s promise in the Scriptures. By now, you should be seeing that the ALL THINGS in Colossians 1:15-17 are referring to God’s NEW CREATION of NEW CREATURES who are being created IN Jesus Christ. And you should be seeing that the Son of MAN, Jesus is the FIRSTBORN of EVERY NEW CREATURE to become the BEGINNING of God’s NEW CREATION. In other words, by now, you should be seeing that Colossians 1:15-17 has NOTHING whatsoever to do with Jesus being the creator in eternity past who created everything that exists in the entire universe. If not, then please keep reading. 

You may have noticed the highlighted words in blue type in the Scriptures that we just read. If you read right over them the first time, I implore you to not ignore them this time. For you see, the KJV, as well as all other translations of the Bible, are TRANSLATIONS. In other words, the original Greek words have OTHER meanings and it is the translators that chose one of the meanings of the Greek words that THEY felt, and perhaps even sincerely believed, were the best meanings in each verse of Scripture. 

But SOMETIMES the translators have a little bias while translating Greek to the English language. Please understand that I am not saying that their bias was INTENTIONAL. But rather, being bias is due to what we have been TAUGHT to believe. And what we have been taught to believe is someone's INTERPRETATION of the Scriptures. And for that reason, I have found it best to allow Scripture to interpret Scripture so that ALL of the Scriptures AGREE with each other. We should never force our own personal interpretation that we have come to believe in the Scriptures. 

And if we are honest with ourselves and with God we all know that NO Christian became a Christian WITHOUT HEARING HOW to become a Christian. In other words, EVERY Christian was TAUGHT what they believe. Now, many Christians may have read and studied the Bible for themselves after they became Christians and THEN found out that what they were taught by their church denominations CONTRADICT what the Holy Spirit is teaching them directly from the word of God, the Holy Bible. 

Let us now go back and read the WHOLE CONTEXT of Colossians 1:15-17 by reading Colossians 1:2-4,12-23. The only reason that I am not quoting the whole chapter is to try to make this study not as long as my precious study on Colossians 1:15-17 called “COLOSSIANS 1:15-17 WHO CREATED ALL THINGS?” But I want to include verses 2-4 because it is very easy to see that the “ALL THINGS” in verse 16 is speaking of the SAINTS in verse 2 who are the BRETHREN of Jesus. 


Colossians 1:2-4,12-23.


To the SAINTS and faithful brethren IN (“en” G1722) Christ which are at Colosse: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. (In this verse, I believe that Paul intends his words to mean the SAINTS in heaven who died being faithful to the true gospel of Jesus Christ. And the faithful brethren are referring to the live saints IN Jesus Christ still on the earth)

3.  We give thanks TO God and the Father OF our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you, 

4.  Since we heard of your faith IN (“en” G1722) Christ Jesus, (To become NEW CREATURES created by God IN Jesus Christ) and of the love which you have to ALL the saints, (The Greek word translated as “ALL” speaking of ALL the SAINTS is “pas” Strong’s number G3956 which is the SAME Greek word “pas” translated in the KJV in verses 16 and 17 as the phrase “ALL THINGS”. So to me, in the LIGHT of the WHOLE word of Almighty God it is blatantly clear that the ALL things in verse 16,17 is speaking of THE ALL of whosoever BELIEVES IN Jesus are created by God IN Jesus Christ who BECAME the FIRSTFRUITS unto God)...

...12.  Giving thanks unto the Father, which has made us meet to be partakers of the INHERITANCE of the saints IN (“en” G1722) light: (Keep in mind that THE ALL of whosoever believes IN Jesus, the LIGHT of the world, will be JOINT-HEIRS WITH our Lord and Savior, Jesus, the Christ. See Romans 8:17)

13.  Who has delivered us from the power of darkness, and has translated us into the kingdom of His dear Son: (God did NOT translate all THINGS into the kingdom of His dear Son, but rather, God trnalsted ALL who BELIEVE in Jesus as the Lord and Svior into the kingdom of His dear Son)

14.  IN (“en” G1722) whom we have REDEMPTION through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: (In other words, THE ALL of whosoever BELIEVES IN Jesus as the atonement for their sins become NEW CREATURES by receiving God’s gift of REDEMPTION to be FORGIVEN of all our past sins to be RECONCILED to God THROUGH the shed BLOOD of the BODY of FLESH of the Son of MAN, Jesus. So the CONTEXT all the way through is speaking of the ALL who BELIEVE and NOT all THINGS. Again, the word THINGS is NOT in the original Greek text. It was ADDED by the translators. Also, there is no such phrase in the entire Bible saying “God the Son died on the cross for our sins. In fact, there is NO phrase “God the Son” found anywhere in the Bible. But rather, Jesus HIMSELF said that the Son of MAN will be lifted up. And when the Jews see the Son of MAN coming in clouds of glory at the second coming of Jesus, then they will know that Jesus is the CHRIST, the Son OF the living God)

15.  Who is the IMAGE OF the invisible God, the FIRSTBORN of EVERY CREATURE: (1 Corinthians 15:20-28 teaches us of THREE and ONLY THREE HARVESTS of HUMANS that will be GIVEN the DIVINE NATURE of IMMORTALITY. So let us read those verses to learn WHO those THREE HARVESTS of humans are, according to the Scriptures. Here is 1 Corinthians 15:20-28. But NOW is Christ risen from the dead, and BECOME the FIRSTFRUITS of them that slept

1Co 15:21  For since by MAN came death, by MAN came also the resurrection of the dead

1Co 15:22  For as in Adam all die, even so IN (“en” G1722) Christ shall all be made alive. 

1Co 15:23  But every MAN in his own order: [Order #1. The FIRST HARVEST of the FIRSTFRUITS unto God, the Son of MAN, Jesus the] Christ the FIRSTFRUITS; afterward  [Order #2. The SECOND HARVEST of the FIRSTFRUITS unto God] they that are Christ's at his coming. [Then comes the FINAL harvest of humans in Order #3. The THIRD HARVEST and final harvest of the FIRSTFRUITS unto God that will be gathered at the END of the Millennial reign of the NOW glorified Jesus, who right now in this present world the ONLY begotten Son, the firstborn of MANY BRETHREN]

1Co 15:24  Then comes the END, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; WHEN He shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. 

1Co 15:25  For he must reign, till He hath put all enemies under his feet. 

1Co 15:26  The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death

1Co 15:27  For He hath put all things under his feet. But when He says all things are put under him, it is manifest that He is EXCEPTED, which did put all things under him

1Co 15:28  And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto Him that put all things under him, that God [EVEN the FATHER, according to verse 24] may be all in all.” In other words, when the 1000 years has ended then Jesus will step down from ruling FOR Yahweh and commit the ruling of God’s kingdom back into the hands of God so that Almighty God Yahweh, EVEN the FATHER, will once again be the complete ruler over all of His creation, including his NOW eternal Son, Jesus)

16.  For (Or BECAUSE) BY ( Or more precisely, according to the ENTIRE CONTEXT this verse should read “en” G1722 IN) him were ALL (“PAS” G1232) things created, that are in heaven, (Speaking of the SAINTS in heaven who have died IN Jesus Christ) AND (The LIVING SAINTS IN him) that are in the earth, visible and invisible, (Still speaking of ALL the SAINTS IN Jesus, as in the visible living saints on the earth and the invisible souls of the saints in heaven) whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: (If it was not for the Son of MAN laying down his life on the cross then there would be NO JOINT-HEIRS with Jesus to rule and reign with him in the world yet to come. In other words, there are SAINTS and thrones, and dominions, and principalities, and powers that the saints will INHERIT with Jesus but not UNTIL his second coming) all things were created BY (“DIA” G1232) him, and FOR (“EIS” G1519) him: (Or more precisely, according to the ENTIRE CONTEXT, this verse should read “THE ALL BECAUSE OF him are created and INTO him.” The Greek word “eis” also means “TILL” him or UNTIL Jesus returns which is WHEN we will receive our new glorified immortal bodies like Jesus received after God raised him from the dead and highly exalted him to become the Lord of the Sabbath rest of Yahweh while Jesus rules FOR his God and Father for 1000 years. So another translation that agrees with the whole word of God could be “all things were created BECAUSE OF him, yea yet UNTIL him”)

17.  And he is before all things, and by him, all things consist. (In other words, the Son of MAN, Jesus received eternal life before the ALL of whosoever believes IN him. And the now gloried Son of Man, Jesus, is ABOVE the ALL of whosoever believes IN him. This is NOT to say that Jesus is not above everyone and everything EXCEPT for his God and Father. But rather, the CONTEXT in the very next verse is speaking of his church, the SAINTS, the ALL of whosoever believes IN Jesus. And IN him the all of whosoever believes STAND TOGETHER WITH Jesus. To say this another way, the very next verse INTERPRETS verse 17 FOR us)

18.  And he is the head of the body, the church:(Speaking of the ALL of whosoever that believe and will endure unto the END to receive their reward of ETERNAL LIFE in the SECOND HARVEST. So then he, the Son of MAN, Jesus is the HEAD of the church) who is the beginning, (Speaking of the Son of MAN, Jesus, BECOMING the FIRSTFRUITS of God to be the BEGINNING of God’s NEW CREATION of RIGHTEOUS PEOPLE)  the FIRSTBORN (Of EVERY CREATURE) from the dead; THAT (Or SO THAT) in all things he might have the PREEMINENCE. (Now, if so be, that Jesus pre-existed as God the Son in eternity past as Trinitarian Christians CLAIM then why did the Son of MAN, Jesus, need to die on the cross, be resurrected, be highly exalted, and be GIVEN eternal life IN ORDER THAT he could have PREEMINENCE over all things? Would not a so-called God the Son from all eternity past have ALREADY had PREEMINENCE over all things?)

19.  For it pleased the Father that IN him (The FIRSTBORN of every creature from the DEAD) SHOULD all fulness dwell; (In other words, if so be that God the Son pre-existed in eternity past then the fullness of DEITY did NOT DWELL IN him in eternity past. And why is that? Read the next verse)

20.  And, having made peace through the BLOOD of his cross, by (Or THROUGH the ACT) him (Speaking of the Son of MAN, Jesus, shedding his blood on Yahweh the Father's cross for the atonement of sin. For you see, it was Yahweh's plan of salvation to use the cross or the crucifixion of a righteous MAN made a little LOWER or inferior to the angels) to RECONCILE all things (Again, the word things is NOT in the original Greek text, So to me, it should read to reconcile the ALL, speaking of the ALL of whosoever believes IN Jesus) unto himself; by him, (Or BECAUSE OF him, the human Son of MAN Jesus) I say, whether they be things in earth or things in heaven. (This last phrase LITERALLY reads “...whether THE [in the PLURAL] in the earth, or whether THE [in the plural] in the heaven.” )

21. And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now has He RECONCILED 

22.  IN (“en” G1722) the BODY OF of his FLESH through DEATH, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight: (In other words, Almighty God Yahweh the Father RECONCILED the ALL of whosoever BELIEVES IN (“en” G1722) the BODY OF of his FLESH through DEATH, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight. This is speaking of the Son od MAN, the human Son of God. It is NOT saying that whosoever believes in the divine immortal body of God the Son that died on the cross. The Scripture states as a FACT with no interpretation needed that it was the BODY of his FLESH that died for the sins of the whole world so the WHOSOEVER believes the TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ will be RECONCILED to God IF we endure unto the END to be saved. And we know from the Scriptures that it was the Son of MAN who was lifted up on the cross, according to John 3:14, John 8:28, and John 12:34. Jesus was MADE Lord and god AFTER the cross by his God and Father HIGHLY EXALTING His human Son, Jesus)

23.  If you CONTINUE in the faith grounded and settled and be NOT moved AWAY from the hope of the GOSPEL, which you have heard, and which was preached to EVERY CREATURE  which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister;”


Again, can you not see that it is Almighty God Yahweh the Father who is the one that does the CREATING of His NEW CREATION of PEOPLE IN, THROUGH, BY, BECAUSE OF and FOR the SAKE OF His SON Jesus Christ the FIRSTBORN of EVERY CREATURE as the BEGINNING of the CREATION of God?


Please read Psalm 102:18.


“This shall be written for the generation to come: and the PEOPLE which SHALL BE CREATED shall praise the LORD.” 


This verse is NOT talking about God creating in the future MORE humans beings. But rather, this is a prophecy of the New Covenant that was established in the shed blood of Jesus to FINISH the creation of the human race by RECONCILING the fallen human race back to himself through the ACT of the ONE MAN, Jesus, the Christ. 

And WITHOUT the ANOINTED Son of MAN co-operating WITH Almighty God Yahweh the Father to work together with God by becoming obedient to do all the will of his God and Father then NONE of FALLEN mankind could be created in the IMAGE of God. That is why God PROPHESIED in Genesis 2:16 to his yet future Messiah saying, “Let US make man in OUR image and after OUR likeness.” But then in the very next verse in Genesis 1:27, we only see ONE CREATOR. For you see all the pronouns in verse 27 are SINGULAR. For more IN-DEPTH teaching on Genesis 1:26 please read the study “GENESIS 1:26 LET US MAKE MAN IN OUR IMAGE!”

And for a more IN-DEPTH study on Colossians 1:15-17 please read ALL the studies under the two headings >>>IS JESUS THE CREATOR?<<< and >>>WAS JESUS CREATED?<<<
