Colossians 1:15-17 15 He is the image of the invisible God, the Firstborn of all creation. 16 For by [or in] Him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through Him and for Him. 17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.
Since Jesus was created before the creation and worked on the creation with His Father, He has preeminence over how the Law then and God’s desire today are to be followed. An example of this is found in Mark 2:23-28, where He declared Himself Lord of the Sabbath. This means we cannot rely solely on the Bible, but the Spirit of Christ to know what He wants each member of His Body to do or understand. Remember, the majority of believers back then could not read; they had no choice but to trust the Spirit’s guidance. Do we think ourselves better than they because we have a book we can take up at any time? Given the fact that all Biblical translations are very faulty, we must avoid making that soulish mistake.
Yah said He rested on the seventh day, but what kind of rest was it? According to Colossians 1:17, He holds everything together, so if He did a complete rest, the creation would fall apart. No, His rest was from creating because His will, His desire, NEVER RESTS. This is what Jesus meant when He said in John 5:17, “My Father is working until now, and I am working.” The Lord of the Sabbath had to rest permanently from His own works and do His Father’s will. If we are being refined into His image, should we not do the same? Shouldn’t we ask Him what we are supposed to be doing?
