Sermon – “Is Jesus God?” – Garner Ted Armstrong Sermon, March 2, 2002

Who is Jesus Christ? Who was He before His human birth?

The world’s churches and churchmen don’t know. They ignore John 1. They ignore the Apostle Paul who wrote;

Colossians 1:15-18
15Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 16For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. 18And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

Read John 1 and Colossians 1 very carefully. According to those scriptures (and others) Jesus Christ is the One who did the creating. “All things were created by Him”. The implications are massive, Most have supposed that a mean old Father God did the creating and that Jesus Christ came to do away with His Father’s mean old laws. Not so. The member of the God family who created all things was the one who dealt with Abraham, all the patriarchs, with Moses and all the prophets. It was He who wrote the ten commandments with His own finger into the stone tablets. And as Jesus Christ Himself said “17Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.” Matt. 5:17
