What Jesus Christ taught regarding the cosmos

That the Almighty Lord God the Son, being the Logos (Word) who is God, taught through the Bible, viz. the Written Word of God, the following verities regarding the world (cosmos):

1. The world consists of the entire original heavens, earth and all things in them which the Almighty Lord God the Son, Christ Jesus, Himself has created-founded-made-formed-ordered (Col.1:16-17; Jn.1:3,10; Heb.1:8-12; Gen.1:31,27; 2:1-24; Neh.9:5-30; Isa.42:5; 44:24; 45:12; 48:12-13) by His creative command-word-calling-order-giving-hand (Rom.4:17; Heb.11:3; Gen.1:3; Ps.148:1-6; Heb.1:10-12; Col.1:16; Acts 17:25; etc…);

The Word of God definitely revealed that the ACTUAL CREATOR-FOUNDER-MAKER-ORDERER of the entire original creation or world (cosmos) is a SINGLE PERSON who is NONE OTHER THAN the Almighty Lord God the Son, Christ Jesus Himself; for although God the Father is a CO-PURPOSER (Eph.3:11), of the Eternal Purpose, with God the Son (Jn.5:19) and God the Holy Spirit (Eph.4:3-4), and, although God the Holy Spirit is the one who hovered over (Gen.1:2) and confirmed (Ps.104:30; Gen.2:7; Job 33:4) the creative acts/works of God the Son, yet it is Christ Jesus Himself, the Almighty Lord God the Son who singularly performed the acts/works of creating-founding-making-forming-ordering all things or all of creation (Heb.1:8-12; Col.1:16-17; Jn.1:1-3,10; Gen.1:31,27; 2:7-22; Ps.148:1-6; Isa.40:25-26,12-13; 41:4; 42:5; 44:6-8,23-25; 45:12; 46:4; 48:12-13; Zech.12:1); thus although the English word God in all of Genesis chapter 1 is the translation of the Hebrew term ELOHIM which term is not only plural in form but it also denotes plurality yet the right translation of the opening clause of Genesis 1:1 from Hebrew into English is this: “In the beginning God He created the heavens and the earth”; no wonder Genesis 1:31 says, “And God saw everything which He has made and it was very good”; that is why all of those who are teaching and/or asserting that “God the Father Almighty is the creator of the heavens and the earth” or that the three Persons of the TRINITY are CO-CREATORS of the world are not only contradicting the Word of God (Heb.1:8-12; Col.1:16-17; Acts 17:25-28) but they are also lying about and blaspheming against the Lord Jesus Christ who is the Singular Personal Creator and Maker of all things (Jn.1:1,3,10; Rev.1:8; Rom.4:17; Ps.148:1-6; Isa.40:25-28; 41:4; 42:5; 45:12; 48:12-13; Heb.1:8-12; Col.1:16-17); the contention that it is God the Father who created-founded-made the world but He did it only through or by means of God the Son is contradicted by the Father’s own declaration, in Hebrews 1:8-12, that the Son is the Lord who, in the “beginning”, has laid the foundation of the earth and the heavens are the works of His hand”; since Jesus ALWAYS DO what is pleasing to the Father (Jn.8:29) and since the creation of the world must be pleasing to the Father, therefore, it must be Jesus who has created the world; it is unBiblical and wrong to think or say or believe (Ps.19:14; Matt.12:30-37) or claim or assume that in the entire work of creation God the Son is just an agent and/or an instrument and/or a means and/or a tool but God the Father Himself is the Principal and/or Doer of the entire work not only because without the LOGOS who is God and the Only Begotten Son, viz. Christ Jesus (Jn.1:1,14,18), was NOT anything made that was made (Jn.1:3) and without Jesus Christ God has no power (“dunamis” = ability) neither wisdom at all, (for a being without power and wisdom cannot be God at all [I Cor.1:24; Rev.5:11-12; Ps.115:1-8; 135:1-21]) but also because, according to the Word of God, the only Person claiming to be and/or identified as the creator and/or founder and/or maker of all things or the whole world ([Isa.40:28; 43:15; Rom.1:25; I Pet.4:19; Gen.1:27; 5:2; 6:5-8; Deut.4:32-40; Ps.148:1-6; Isa.40:26; 41:20; 42:5; 43:1,7; 45:8,12,18; 48:7; 54:16; Mal.2:10]; [Ps.102:25-27; Isa.48:12-13; Zech.12:1; Matt.13:35; 25:34; Heb.1:8-10; 4:3]; [Ps.95:1-6; Prov.14:31; 17:5; 22:2; Isa.17:7; 45:9-12; 51:13; 54:1-8]) and of the new heavens and the new earth (Rev.21:1-7) is a SINGULAR PERSON who, vis a vis the world, has PERSONALLY DIRECTLY and HISTORICALLY revealed, identified and claimed Himself that He is also the ALPHA-FIRST-BEGINNING, the WAY-TRUTH-LIFE, the SAVIOR-REDEEMER-ROCK, the SHEPHERD-KING-HOLY ONE, the LORD of lords, the LORD OF HOSTS, the OMEGA-END-LAST who can be, and has been and will be, seen, heard and experienced by His truly consistent adherents or opponents so that this Biblical CREATOR-FOUNDER-MAKER of all things is NONE OTHER THAN Christ (MESSIAH) Jesus (YAHWEH SHUA), the Almighty (Rev.1:8) Lord (Matt.22:41-45; Rev.17:14; Ps.110:1-6; 140:6-7; 135:1-21; 136:1-26; 130:1-8; Jn.12:37-41; Isa.6:1-5) God the Son (Heb.1:8; Isa.9:6; I Jn.5:20) Himself and NOT God the Father (whom no creature has seen nor can see [Jn.1:18; 5:37; 6:46; I Tim.6:16]) NEITHER God the Holy Spirit (who manifests Himself only in symbolic and semeiotic or “sign-making” forms [Matt.3:11,16; Jn.3:6-7; Acts 2:1-4; Gen.1:2; I Cor. chpt.12]);

The creation-foundation-making of all things or of the world (cosmos) was through Christ (MESSIAH) Jesus (YAHWEH SHUA), the Almighty Lord God the Son, not because He was functioning as a TOOL (like an architect’s plan and/or an engineer’s material for building a house) neither was He functioning as an attorney-in-fact (acting for and in behalf of His Principal) nor was He functioning as an AGENT-REPRESENTATIVE of God the Father because the creation-foundation-making of all things/the world THROUGH God the Son just like His OTHER OVER ALL MEDIATORIAL FUNCTIONS, e.g. Savior-Redeemer of the world or the incarnation or the Eternal High Priesthood etc…, are His exclusive VOLUNTARILY ASSUMED FUNCTIONS which He has taken upon Himself and was agreed upon by the TRINITY in the ALL FOR JESUS ETERNAL COVENANT of God the Father and of God the Son and of God the Holy Spirit; the entire combined figures of a TOOL or an INSTRUMENT and an ATTORNEY-IN-FACT and an AGENT-REPRESENTATIVE does not exhaust the INDISPENSABLE VOLUNTARY BUT NOT TRANSFERABLE ABSOLUTELY UNIQUE OVER ALL AND ETERNAL INTERVENING-CHANNELING-MEDIATORIAL FUNCTIONS and the INFINITELY PERFECT VOLUNTARY SONSHIP POSITION as well as the ETERNALLY COVENANTED DISTINCT, EXCLUSIVE and NOT INTERCHANGEABLE ONCE AND FOR ALL ACCOMPLISHMENT AND/OR WORKS AND/OR DOINGS of the ALMIGHTY LORD GOD THE SON;

A father, who is not a medical doctor but whose eldest son is a medical doctor, wanted a seriously wounded orphaned child to be treated-cured and made well; so he called on his son-doctor to make this patient well; the son-doctor was more than willing to fulfill his father’s wish because he wanted to adopt the wounded child into his own family; consequently the son-doctor treated the patient-child until the latter’s wound is completely healed. Now who treated the patient-child? Is it the son-doctor or his father? Of course, it is the son-doctor who treated the seriously wounded orphaned child, and, the son-doctor did it not because he is a TOOL or an INSTRUMENT, ATTORNEY-IN-FACT and AGENT of his father or just because his father called on him to do it; but the son-doctor did it simply because he agreed with his father that he, viz. the son-doctor, voluntarily and in line not only with his relative position as a son and exclusive function as a doctor but also with his own intention to adopt the wounded child into membership in his family; it is not only untrue to say that the father of the son-doctor is the one who treated the wounded child but such misidentification of person and/or misattribution of function is grossly unjust to the person, function and intention of the son-doctor who is the actual doctor-adoptor of the wounded orphaned child; the foregoing parenthetical story depicts the falsehoods and injustice being perpetuated by those who attribute to God the Father or to God the Holy Spirit the covenanted or agreed upon but exclusive and eternal and/or once and for all and/or dispensational voluntary functions of God the Son; to attribute anyone or more of the functional accomplishments/works/doings of Christ Jesus, the Almighty Lord God the Son to any other is not only a distortion of so many passages of the Bible but it is also a perpetration-propagation-promotion of falsehood and the commitment to injustice; for instance, since the FIRST-LAST-CREATOR-MAKER of all the createdkinds as revealed in Heb.1:8-12; Col.1:16-17; Jn.1:1-3,10; Gen.1:1,27,31; 2:1-24; I Cor.1:24; Isa.40:1-28; 41:4; 42:5; 43:1-25; 44:1-8,23-24; 45:11-12,21-25; 46:4,9-10; 48:12-17; Neh.9:5-30; Zech.4:6; 7:12; Deut.32:3-18; Psalms 144 to 148; Ps.62:1-12; Rev.1:8; 22:12-13; Titus 2:13-14 is also the ROCK-KING-JUDGE-REDEEMER-SAVIOR (Deut.32:3-4,15,18; Ps.62:1-2,5-6 [I Cor.10:1-4]; Ps.145:1-2; Isa.6:1-5,8-10 [Jn.12:35-41]; Jn.5:22; Js.4:12; Titus 2:13-14; Jn.4:42; 3:16-17; I Jn.4:14) of all creation, therefore, the FUNCTIONARY-DOER-ACCOMPLISHER of all this is Christ (MESSIAH) Jesus (YAHWEH SHUA), the Almighty Lord God the Son Himself and not God the Father neither God the Holy Spirit; to attribute the aforementioned functions-doings-accomplishments to anyone other than the Lord God the Son, Christ Jesus Himself, is to advocate falsehood, injustice, confusion and disorder/chaos;

The Biblical teaching that in all the works of the TRIUNE LORD GOD the Three (3) Members-Persons are Co-Purposers of the Eternal Purpose (Eph.3:11; Jn.5:19; 3:34; Gen.1:26) and God the Holy Spirit is the witness-confirmer-unifier-bond (Gen.1:2; Ps.104:30; Eph.4:3) but NO ONE EXCEPT GOD THE SON, Christ Jesus, is THE SINGULAR, DIRECT AND ACTUAL PERSONAL DOER-PERFORMER-ENACTOR-FULFILLER emphasizes and compliments the Biblical Teaching that each Member-Person of the TRINITY is eternally distinct, individually unique and dispositionally distinquishable from but never ever interchangeable with any one of the other two remaining Members-Persons of the TRINITY; however, this Biblical teaching does not divide the three Members-Persons of the TRINITY against each other; instead it safeguards, compliments and renders justice to not only (i) the veracity and necessity of the absolute non-interchangeability of the Person, Relative Position-Designations and Functions of each Member-Person with that of any one or more of the other two remaining Members-Persons but also to (ii) the veracity of the absolute complimentarity, unity or union and harmony of their respectively distinct, unique and not interchangeable Persons, Relative Positions-Designations, Functions and Relations to each other and to the world for they have so voluntarily bonded themselves together in their Eternal Covenant; many of the most important aspects of the foregoing truth are evident in the following story about a family which we are going to call the Complimento Family wherein the father, F. Complimento, a very wealthy businessman, his eldest son, E. Complimento, a very intelligent scientist-architect-engineer, and F. Complimento’s youngest son, Y. Complimento, a brilliant journalist and an advertising magnate, have all wanted and agreed that E. Complimento should conceptualize-invent-construct a very efficient, commercially profitable but environmentally friendly Hydrogen-Powered Engine (or H-PE); after very many years of painstaking research, backbreaking hardwork and life-consuming sacrifice E. Complimento finally made the H-PE which he and F. Complimento and Y. Complimento have wanted and agreed upon for him, viz. E. Complimento, to make; now that H-PE is already a finished product it will never be right neither true nor just for anyone to think-believe and/or to say and/or to claim and/or to assume that since F. Complimento and Y. Complimento are co-purposers and in agreement with E. Complimento for the latter to make H-PE then the said F. Complimento and Y. Complimento are already co-makers of H-PE with E. Complimento; on the same principle, even if God the Father and God the Holy Spirit are CO-PURPOSERS and IN AGREEMENT with God the Son for God the Son to be the Creator-Maker-Mediator-Orderer-Provisioner-Preserver-Judge-Redeemer-Savior-Consumator of the world and since God the Son has already Singularly, Personally and Historically assumed, taken, worked on, accomplished and/or brought about those functions-works-doings, therefore, it is erroneously concluded-believed-contended that God the Father and God the Holy Spirit are also Creators-Makers-Mediators-Orderers-Provisioners-Preservers-Judges-Redeemers-Saviors-Consumators of the world; those who insist that all of the three (3) Members-Persons of the Trinity are the Creators-Makers-Mediators-Orderers-Provisioners-Preservers-Judges-Redeemers-Saviors-Consumators of the world are not only ignorant and liars but they are also against Gen.1:27,31; 2:1-22; Job chpts.38,39,40,41; Ex.20:1-6; Ps.135 to Ps.148; Isa. chpt.40 to 48; Jn.1:1-3,10; Heb.1:8-12; Neh.9:5-31; Col.1:16-17; Eph.1:3-23; Jn.5:22; 3:35; 1:29; 3:16-18; Titus 2:13-14; Acts 4:12; Col.1:15-21; I Thess.5:9; II Tim.2:10-22; Rev.1:8; 21:1-8; 22:12-13; Heb.1:8-12; and so many other passages in the Old Testament and the New Testament revealing-asserting-teaching-claiming the SINGULAR, PERSONAL, ETERNAL and/or HISTORICAL and/or ONCE AND FOR ALL absolutely unique individual functions of Christ Jesus, the Almighty Lord God the Son and the JUSTLY ALL-APPROPRIATING ALL IN ALL even in His incarnation and Perfect Manhood;

For the Word of God definitely reveals-asserts-teaches-claims that it is not only the cosmic function of creation but all of the six other unique cosmic functions of ordering, provisioning, preservation, judgment, redemption-salvation and consumation are among the exclusive and unique doings/functions/works of God the Son, Christ Jesus; however, God the Son’s accomplishments/performances/fulfilments of each and all of these seven unique cosmic functions do not disunite the TRINITY but instead they have therein perfectly complimented each other; for God the Father and God the Holy Spirit have voluntarily purposed, agreed-granted and proclaimed that there is one Lord Jesus Christ from (Rev.1:8,17,18; 22:12-13), on (Jn.3:35; Col.1:17), in (Col.1:16-17; Acts 17:28), through (Rom.11:36; Jn.1:3,10), with (Matt.12:30; Rom.8:32), to (Col.1:16; Rom.11:36) and for (Jn.3:35; Heb.1:2-3; Mk.10:27-30; Col.3:23-25) whom are all things (I Cor.8:6); for it pleased God the Father that ALL THE FULNESS should dwell in God the Son, Christ Jesus (Col.1:19); and, even God the Holy Spirit was given measurelessly/boundlessly/infinitely by God the Father to God the Son (Jn.3:31-34);

Throughout the Bible the seven cosmic functions of creation-making-founding, ordering, provisioning, preserving, judging, redeeming-ransoming-saving-sanctifying and consumating-completing-finalizing all things are all entirely, completely, exclusively, consistently definitely and directly predicated, and revealed-asserted-taught as the functions-doings, of just a SINGLE PERSON, and, that SINGLE PERSON is NONE OTHER THAN Christ (MESSIAH) Jesus (YAHWEH SHUA), the Almighty Lord God the Son and the justly All-appropriating ALL in all even in His incarnation and Perfect Manhood; all of those who assumed and/or believed and/or presumed and/or contended/advocated otherwise are either ignorant of the Bible or disregarding/distorting/misinterpreting the Biblical grammatical and/or literary forms, principles and meanings or simply attempting to suppress ALL THE TRUTH of the Lord Jesus Christ in their injustice/unrighteousness; however, all of those who are capitalizing on ignorance and/or prejudice and/or falsehood and/or pride and/or blind passion to further/advance/promote whatever cause/goal/objective/purpose that is NOT ALL FOR JESUS are, in so doing, children of the devil (Jn.8:44) who will die in their sins (Jn.8:24) and will ultimately be cast into the lake of fire (Rev.21:8);

2. The world is finite because it has an absolute-ultimate beginning (Gen.1:1) and an absolute-ultimate ending (Matt.24:35; II Pet.3:8-13; Rev.21:1); but the existence, continuity, change, destruction and extinction of the world are contingent for it is not absolutely necessary for them to happen at all yet they may only happen because of the GRACE, TRUTH and RIGHTEOUSNESS of Christ Jesus, the Almighty Lord God the Son (Heb.1:8-12; Jn.1:1-14; Acts 17:25-28; Ecc.3:1-11; Rom.11:36; Col.1:15-21; Matt.24:35; Heb.3:1-6; Rev.1:8; 21:1-8; etc…); thus all of everyone and all of all, in all of creation or the world, i.e. all of Biblical cosmonomy, are subject to the justly All-appropriating rule of Christ (MESSIAH) Jesus (YAHWEH SHUA) Himself, the Almighty Lord God the Son;

3. The world is continously changing (Heb.1:10-12); the reality of cosmic change goes on with or without the humankind being aware of it; however, a human commitment of any kind in any degree/amount/quantity and/or to any extent and with whatever qualification or disqualification will definitely, significantly and irreversibly influence, affect and qualify the direction, process, dimension-scope and consequences of change in and of the world; so human commitment is very vital, significant and definitive in and of the ongoing changing-transformation of the world;

4. The absolutely right order of the continous change of the world is, and must or should ever be, that all things are just from, on, in, through, with, to and for the Lord Jesus Christ Himself;

5. Whatever change the world may take or undergo or pursue but not from Jesus neither on Jesus nor in Jesus nor through Jesus nor with Jesus nor to Jesus nor for Jesus is absolutely wrong and not of God;

6. Every human person must cooperate in changing the world in accordance with the absolutely right order that all things are, and must ever be, Biblically just from, on, in, through, with, to and for the Lord Jesus Christ Himself;

7. Since from, in and through the First Man/Adam the world has proceeded from being very good (Gen.1:31) into universal death incurred by humankind’s commitment to the absolutely wrong course, viz. sin or unfaithfulness or disobedience or rebellion against the Lord God the Son, which wrong course or proceeding means taking-travelling-following THE CROOKED PATH (Rom.5:12), and, since the only way out of sin and the absolutely wrong course of the world is no one but Christ Jesus Himself, the Almighty Lord God the Son who is infinitely but conditionally and justly functioning as the APPROPRIATOR of all of in everyone and of all of all, in all of reality, and, since each and every createdkind individual has its/his/her own self-determination or capability to choose/commit one’s self, which means that he/she has FREE WILL, therefore, the only absolutely right order for each and every createdkind individual is to be, to have and to do all Biblically just from, on, in, through, with, to and for the Lord (ADON/DESPOTEN) Jesus (YAHWEH SHUA) Christ (MESSIAH); otherwise, the createdkind is subject to the law of sin and death (Rom.8:1-3) so that the world is and snared by evil (I Jn.5:19) and thus the sin-defiled elements of the universe will eventually be burnt out (II Pet.3:8-13) and all of the NOT ALL FOR JESUS angels and human beings will be cast into hell and the lake of fire to be tormented there forever (Rev.21:8; Matt.25:41,46); but a new world will be made, by Jesus, for THE TRINITARIAN ALL FOR JESUS EKKLESIA OF THE LORD GOD where they can be with Him forever and ever;
