In family worship, we have reading from the book of Ezekiel. There are a lot of deep and awesome truths found in that book, some of which unlock other controversies that we have yet to understand.
Throughout the coming weeks, I will write about the book of Ezekiel based on various points my family members bring out each night. I pray that you will blessed.
After writing last night's post ("The Word of God"), I realized that the Bible teaches that the Son of God was the active agent in Creation. In other words, God the Father planned it, and God the Son executed it.
How do we come to that conclusion? Well we learned that Jesus is the Word - that He has always been the Word, even before His incarnation. We also learned that the Son of God does in fact take commands from the Father; that is their order of things.
With those lessons in mind, consider this text: "By the word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of His mouth" (Psalm 33:6). The surface meaning is that God spoke and things happened. This is proven by Christ's ability to command the winds and sea to obey Him.
But it can also have deeper meaning. "By the Son of God were the heavens made..." In other words, Jesus, being the Word of God, formed the heavens (and the earth) Himself. This, too, is confirmed by Scripture in Colossians 1:16. It would neat to know that Psalms was a second witness to Colossians!
