Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

November 22 - Evening

"The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, 
shed on the cross.

- Colossians 1:15-20

All Things For Him, Through Him and Reconciled By Him


Jesus Christ is the one who made “peace through his blood, shed on the cross” (Col. 1:20). Jesus Christ is described in the most incredible language and richest expression in Colossians 1:15-20. Paul communicates the cosmic glory and the eternal existence of Christ as the one who is the creator of “all things.” Christ is also the one who holds the visible and invisible worlds together to guarantee that they continue in a state of cosmos (Gr. kosmos, “a harmonious arrangement, order, government”) and do not unravel into chaos (Gr. khaos, “emptiness, vast void, formlessness”).

Jesus is the “image (eikon) of the invisible God,” which means he is both God’s image as in a mirror and a perfect manifestation of God’s character in our natural world.

Jesus is the “firstborn (prototokos) over all creation,” which means he is was eternally existing before anything was created and, because of that, he has supremacy in rank and in glory over all creation.

In Colossians 1:16 Paul says that Jesus created “all things,” which is from a Greek phrase, ta panta, that captures the universal proportions of both the physical and spiritual creation.  “All things” where created:

  1. “in him” - “all things” where created in his sphere of operation and power and control
  2.  “through him” - Jesus was the agent who was the source, who did the work and who brought “all things” into existence
  3. “for him” - all things where designed and continue to exist with a plan and a purpose that can only be found in Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ is the eternal being who is the source of the spiritual and physical realities over which he currently rules in order to maintain order so that everything continues in harmonious order to find its fulfillment in Christ’s eternal plan. This eternal Son of God was the one who, instead of sending an angel, a magic incantation, a religious ritual, or fires of judgment, would:

“reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.” – Colossians 1:20


  Christian Quote from Church History
"Not to care about truth is not to care about God. To love God passionately is to love truth passionately. Being
God-centered in life means being truth-driven in ministry. What is not true is not of God. What is false is anti-God. Indifference to the truth is indifference to the mind of God. Pretense is rebellion against reality and what makes reality is God.
Our concern with truth is simply an echo of our
concern with God."
-John Piper
Something to Ponder??

In the last 1,900 years writing styles and cultures have changed between the time the last book of the Bible was written (Revelation) and now.

But, understand that writing styles and cultures also changed in the 1,500 years between the time Moses edited the ancient documents from the days of Noah (Gen 6), Abraham (2000 BC) and Joseph (1700 BC) into the book of Genesis in 1400 BC and the last book written by John around 96 AD.

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information



Sbennumi (Gr) - Quench (Eng) - sbennumi is Greek word that means "to extinguish by drowning with water, as opposed to smothering." It is used in:
Mark 9:48 where the fires of hell are not quenched.
Ephesians 6:16 where the shield of faith is able to quench the fiery darts.
1 Thessalonians 5:19 where believers are told not to quench the Holy Spirit in their life.

  Sargon II, the king of Assyria from 722-705, finished the destruction of northern Israel and deported the ten tribes.
(2 Kings 17:24) In his annals as king, Sargon claims to have laid siege to Samaria, Israel and captured it at the beginning of his reign in Dec/Jan in 722/721. Isaiah mentions Sargon in Isaiah 20:1. A brick found in the
ancient Assyrian city of Khorsabad is inscribed with cuneiform text and refers to King Sargon II. (details Here and see line 7 Here. Details of the brick are Here and a photo of the brick is Here)
Confession to Action   Facts and Information

Do I understand that universal reality and scriptural truth are expressions of Jesus Christ,
who is the source of all truth and reality!
I will live my life in the wisdom of truth and reality seeking to find my purpose
and fulfillment in Jesus Christ.

  "There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan that can succeed against the Lord."
