In recent messages, we’ve been noticing passages that directly and clearly say Jesus is God (Deity). Another way to prove the same thing is to notice passages teaching that Jesus was the Creator (along with God the Father). Read the following three verses along that line:
· Colossians 1:16 … his dear Son: … For by him were all things created, … all things were created by him, and for him
· Hebrews 1:2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds (see also verse 10)
· John 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made. (see also verse 10)
And this fact would explain why the pronouns for God in Genesis 1:26 are plural (“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness …”), meaning in the beginning of time God the Father created the worlds through his Son Jesus Christ; they did it together.
Conclusion: Jesus is Deity, as only Deity could create the universe.
