Focus: Colossians 1:17-18 - KJV
17. And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. 18. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.
The truth of the word of God shows us that the Lord Jesus Christ is not different from the father who created all things. People’s biases make them to query this assertion and dub it an abomination claiming that Jesus, like many others was merely a prophet and therefore a servant of God. This lie of the devil makes faith in Christ and the salvation He has wroth difficult for some to believe and therefore, they continue to live in bondage despite the freedom available unto them. The biggest lie that has been couched, of course by the devil is that Jesus never died but ascended to heaven and would return someday to die as man. What a fallacy. The devil put this forward to deceive many and rob them of heaven. For if it is claimed that He did not die, then there is no substitutional death for the sin of man. That is the whole idea.
Nonetheless, there is no basis for a controversy. It is irrebuttable that Christ was born as Son of Man and died without sin. But then, the one that died is the one who in the beginning formed all things, and since He would not sit by and watch the destroyer destroy His creatures, He volunteered to rescue them by that which He did on earth. Those who know that He is Lord understand that nothing was made outside of Him and there is nothing that is, that is not inside of Him, whether it be heights or lows, principalities or powers or man himself. The implication of that is that everything is possible in Him, by Him or through Him.
Whatever it is that is responsible for your predicament, if any, is found in Him because nothing exists without Him. Since that is true, we need not be bothered by the afflicter as we can approach the one that gave him being. If only we will submit all our troubles unto Christ who is the Preeminent Lord, then are we able to live above all powers in Christ. For instance, the thing holding the man at the beautiful gate gave way when it heard the name of the Preeminent Lord. If anyone disputes His preeminence, let the same call the name of his own lord whilst we call the name of Jesus, in a contest like it happened on Camel and let us prove who the Preeminent Lord is. There is no controversy: Jesus Christ is Lord.
SOLUTION: Let us not join the doubters that are drawn away by the deception of the devil who seeks to steal their joy. Instead, let us hold on to the truth in the word of the Most-High who gave Him a name above every other name. Believe it and live by it that Jesus Christ has all things in Him.
Pray in this manner, please: Father, I know that you are one God manifesting as Trinity; I hallow your name. Be forever glorified in Jesus’ name. Even now, Papa, so that the world may know that you are the living God, arise in my situation even as I call your name today to the hearing of men in Jesus’ name. By that which you will do for me, let the Lord recognize you as the Preeminent Lord in the name of Jesus.
