Set your heart for the “Deeper Life. Dr. Joseph R. Chambers.“He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16 For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities-- all things have been created through Him and for Him.17He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together,”.(Col. 1:16).Visible Discovery of the Invisible GodAs we enter the end of this age, the spirit world is becoming more visible, clear and active. We believe that the Sovereign God Jehovah is the world creator and ruler. His angelic armies are by far powerful to all the armies of the world together and the fallen angels that followed Satan’s mutiny against God.“How you have fallen from heaven, O morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations! You said in your heart, I will ascend to heaven- I will raise my throne above the stars of God- I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, on the utmost heights of the sacred mountain. I will ascend above the tops of the clouds- I will make myself like the Most High. But you are brought down to the grave, to the depths of the pit. Those who see you stare at you, they ponder your fate: Is this the man who shook the earth and made kingdoms tremble, the man who made the world a desert, who overthrew its cities and would not let his captives go home? Satan said “I will” and was thrown down to the earth and he will ultimately be thrown into hell,” (Isa: 14:12-17).Jude reminds us that even the angels, the chosen servants of God, can be judged for unbelief. Sodom and Gomorrah gave themselves over to sexual sin and were judged. If there had been ten righteous men in those cities God would have spared them. I wonder how many righteous men are standing for God today? I’m afraid there are very few left. God has left us His warnings in history to remind us that if we do not repent and believe we will be judged.Christ in his human nature is the visible discovery of the invisible God, and he that hath seen Him hath seen the Father. Let us adore these mysteries in humble faith, and behold the glory of the Lord in Christ Jesus. He was born or begotten before all the creation, before any creature was made- which is the Scripture way of representing eternity, and by which the eternity of God is represented to us. All things being created by Him were created for him- being made by his power, they were made according to his pleasure, and for his praise and glory. He not only created them all at first, but it is by the word of his power that they are upheld.Christ as Mediator is the Head of the body, the church- all grace and strength are from him- and the church is his body. All fullness dwells in him- a fullness of merit and righteousness, of strength and grace for us. God showed his justice in requiring full satisfaction. This mode of redeeming mankind by the death of Christ was most suitable.
