In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. (Gen 1:1)
In the biblical account of creation we read that it was God who created the world we live in. The beauty of nature, the awesome expanse of the heavens above, birds and animals, all were created by God.
And God said, let us make man in our image, after our likeness. (Gen 1:26a)
In verse 2 we see reference to the Spirit of God, and we can see in verse 26 another subtle reference to the trinity. What did God mean by using the plural us, and our? We read of the role of Christ in creation in Paul’s epistle to the Colossian believers,
Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 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: and he is before all things, and by him all things consist. (Col 1:15-17 KJV)
Here we see the divinity of Christ in plain language. He is the image of the invisible God. We read in Genesis 1:1 that God created the heavens and the earth. We have just seen here that all things were created by Christ, and for Christ. The term firstborn does not mean that Jesus Christ was Himself created, but that He holds the preeminence and ultimate authority over His creation. These passages of scripture give ample proof of the deity of Christ.
God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in times past unto the fathers by the prophets, hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom he also made the worlds; who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high. (Hebrews 1:1-3 KJV)
Again we read that God made the world by Christ, who is the express image of his person. If we want to see God, if we want to know Him, we will see Him, and come to know Him, in the revelation of Jesus Christ. It is through Jesus Christ, as revealed in scripture, that we come to discover and truly know God in these last days.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehendeth it not. (John 1:1-5 KJV)
Finally, we again find that the Word, or Jesus, was present from the very beginning, at creation. This passage is in agreement with the previous passages concerning the role of Jesus Christ in creation, thus proving by the mouth of two or three witnesses, the truth of Christ’s deity.
