Friends, today we want to think about our Blessed Lord, the creation, His manifestation, and His reception in this world.
In John chapter 1 we read of Christ in His creation, the prehistorical Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ. There we have Jesus as Creator, His prehistorical Deity as He created the world. Sometimes we do not realize this, that the Son of God Whom we worship is far more than man! He is GOD.
