Chapter One – Jesus is the Creator


At the beginning of his gospel, the apostle John tells us that:

All things were made by him (Jesus); and without him was not anything made that was made.  Jn. 1:3.

Paul tells us the same thing:

For 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.   Col. 1:16.

And again Paul wrote:

For of Him, and through Him, and to Him, are all things: to whom be glory or ever. Amen.  Rom. 11:36.

For some Christians this comes as a surprise – that Jesus is the Creator. They say,What about the Father, I thought the Father, was the Creator?”  Scripture clearly shows that Jesus is the Creator, but it does not follow that Jesus acted exclusively – the Father, was not excluded from the act of creation. Paul reveals the Father’s role:

 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ.  Eph. 3:9.

So, we see the Father created, but he did it through Jesus. Once again, we see the same thing taught in Hebrews:

 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, 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.  Heb. 1:1, 2.

Paul says here that the Father created the worlds “by whom” (meaning the Son, Jesus). There is a tantalizing piece of information in this verse – notice that the word ‘world’ is actually ‘worlds’ – plural not the singular. It would appear that we are being informed, that Jesus not only created this world but other worlds – that we are not alone in this great universe.

From these verses it is possible to ascertain that both the Father and the Son were involved in the creation – the creation of the world was a joint project, even the Holy Spirit was involved. The creation story in Genesis tells us:

And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.  Gen. 1:2.


And we also have this verse from Genesis:

Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.  Gen. 1:26.

We are not given the specific dynamics between the members of the Godhead, when they created the world. But one thing is clear, Jesus did the actual creation. Jesus clearly claimed to be the source and beginning of the creation:

 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty… the beginning [source, origin] of the creation of God. Rev. 1:8, 3:14.

Jesus is the origin, and author of creation. Jesus took the initiative; Jesus began the work of creation. Perhaps we could understand it this way; imagine the board of a corporation, and they plan a project together, then one member of the board is tasked with the actual implementation of the project. With the Bible verses that we have, we can conclude that Jesus was given the responsibility for the creation of the world.


Jesus the Creator and Jesus the Saviour

Jesus is our Saviour, and once we also recognise him as our Creator, we ought to be able to see an obvious connection, between his role as Creator and his role as our Saviour.

Do not the parents take responsibility for what their children do? If a child causes damage to a third party, who pays? Answer: the parents, who created the child do! In the same way Jesus is paying the price, to restore what he created. When Jesus created the earth and everything in it, he surveyed his finished work and pronounced it “very good” (Gen. 1:31). However, something went wrong and the earth and all its contents, is no longer ‘very good.’ The plan of salvation is all about restoring all that was lost when sin entered into the world. The plan of Salvation is all about Jesus bringing the state of the world back into the state of ‘very good.’ The plan of salvation is all about the Creator taking responsibility for his own creation and rescuing and restoring that which was lost.

In addition, recognising that Jesus is the Creator provides a humbling experience for those whom Jesus seeks to save. Understanding that the Creator was willing to become a part of his own creation – understanding that the Creator will always be a part of his own creation, is the greatest evidence of his love for that which he created. Only he that created, can redeem that which he created.


Acknowledging Jesus as Creator destroys idolatry and false religion

A second important reason, for recognising Jesus as the Creator, is because if it was acknowledged that Jesus is the Creator, then it would naturally follow that the whole world would be Christian.  And if this most important truth was known it would naturally follow that there could be no place for false religion.  How so?  You may ask. Answer: if Jesus created everything, then everything else that claims for itself the attributes of divinity, such as omnipotence, or omnipresence, then these claims must be false. And this is indeed the very argument that the Bible makes:

For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the LORD made the heavens.  Ps. 96:5.

 For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD and there is none else.  Isa. 40:19.

In other words, the Lord is saying, if there were other gods I would know, because I made everything and I did not make any gods – “there is none else I am the only God”. And therefore, if there are other ‘so-called gods’ then mankind must have created these gods themselves. And mankind making their own gods is exactly what the only one and true God accuses mankind of:

 The workman melteth a graven image, and the goldsmith spreadeth it over with gold, and casteth silver chains. He that is so impoverished that he hath no oblation chooseth a tree that will not rot; he seeketh unto him a cunning workman to prepare a graven image, that shall not be moved. Isa. 40:20.


The Lord’s response to such nonsense is to question mankind’s sanity:

 Have ye not known? Have ye not heard? Hath it not been told you from the beginning? Have ye not understood from the foundations of the earth? Isa. 40:21.


In other words, there is a lack of knowledge about these things. This reminds us of the prophet Hosea lamenting the same condition in his time – a lack of knowledge about God (see Hos. 4:6). And nothing has changed. We too, in this generation, suffer from a lack of knowledge about God and all things Biblical.  On this point of knowledge about Himself, the Creator continues through Isaiah:

 To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? Saith the Holy One. Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things? That bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth… Hast thou not known? Hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary?  There is no searching of his understanding.  Isa. 40:25-28.


The Lord is saying here in these verses, that creation has his fingerprints all over it. Creation comes with an inbuilt signature, a divine code if you will. In fact, the Bible tells us that this inbuilt signature is so obvious that we are without excuse for not seeing and understanding it:

 For, ever since the creation of the world His invisible nature and attributes, that is, His eternal power and divinity, have been intelligible and clearly discernible in and through the things that have been made (his handiworks). So (men) are without excuse [altogether without any defence or justification].  Rom. 1:20. Amplified Bible.


Therefore, anything that poses another theory for our origins is foolishness:

 Because that, when they knew not God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise they became fools.  Rom. 1:21, 22.


Such foolishness has consequences, and psychiatrists have a name for it, they call it cognitive dissonance, which is a fancy term for refusing to believe the obvious.

 And changed the glory of God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four-footed beasts, and creeping things.  Rom. 1:23.

One of the prominent principles that operates in God’s universe is that we reap what we sow (see Gal.6:7), and this is what happens next, in the downward spiral from refusing to acknowledge Jesus as the Creator, cognitive dissonance has consequences:

 Wherefore, God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves. Rom. 1:24.


Giving these words their due weight – we can recognise what is being said here – God eventually gives up on those who refuse to acknowledge him as their Creator. And when God gives up on such, they lose their moral compass, and that is because they feel no restraint. If there is no Creator there is no one to be accountable too, so everything becomes relative and the fundamental principle of relative philosophy is, ‘if it feels good do it.’  And we are still not finished with the consequences:

 Who changed the truth of God into a lie and worshipped the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. Rom. 1:25.

So, now that we no longer acknowledge the Creation of God everything about God becomes a lie. Collectively, we, mankind, are living in a cognitive dissonance wasteland. A wilderness where reality becomes the lie and the lie becomes the truth. Of course, the collective cognitive dissonance voice will howl with fury over such a statement, but we only have to look at the theory of evolution, to know that collective cognitive dissonance is an unfortunate fact, and we will look at the theory of evolution in a moment. But first there is an additional reason  why it is important to believe that Jesus is the Creator.


Jesus the Sustainer


Jesus not only created the world and the reality that we live in, he sustains it as well:

And he is before all things, and in him all things consist.  Col. 1:17.

Jesus did not just create, set things in motion and then leave us to it. No, he is actively engaged in an ongoing maintenance programme. Jesus is the reason that the sun rises in the east every morning, and that it sets in the west in the evening, and that the whole universe does not fly to pieces:

 and upholding all things by the word of his power… Heb. 1:3.

Jesus ‘upholds’ all things, the word ‘uphold’ is in the continuous present tense, which means that this is something that Jesus does on a continual daily basis. He is actively and intimately engaged with what he created. Perhaps these words that Jesus spoke have a greater import than previously thought – “Without me you can do nothing” (Jn. 15:5). Just how intimate and personal is Jesus with us in this sustaining role?

 In him we live, and move and have our being.  Acts 17:28.

Without Jesus we would simply die – cease to exist. This is why the Bible constantly speaks of him as being the source of life:

 In him was life; and that life was the light of men.  Jn. 1:4.


Science confirms the Bible

Our lives, our very existence, are totally dependent on Jesus – but wait, stop, some will be thinking already: “has not science refuted creation, isn’t creation just a myth?” Well, if we think that, maybe we should pay attention to some of the latest memos coming out of science. In this modern age of knowledge, scientists are looking into their microscopes and they are seeing the most intricate and exquisite design at the micro level. At the same time other scientists are looking through their telescopes at the macro level and they are seeing the same wonders – exquisite details – at extraordinary distances. At the present time science is focused on a mysterious problem, they don’t know what sustains or upholds the universe. And because they don’t understand it, they call it ‘dark’ – ‘dark matter’ and ‘dark energy’ – Here are two comments from two different scientists:

 The universe is made up of dark matter and dark energy, and we don’t know what either of them is.  Saul Permutter, American astrophysicist.

The most profound mystery in all of science. Michael S. Turner, cosmologist, University of Chicago.

To be precise, scientists believe that the universe is made up of 68% dark energy, 27% dark matter and 5% normal matter.  This means that they believe only 5% of the total matter in the universe is visible – 95% is invisible, unknown and not measurable. If scientists would only accept the facts and not be blinded by collective cognitive dissonance they would come to the same conclusions as Albert Einstein who courageously said: “The more I study science the more I believe in God.”

Other scientists are finally catching up to Einstein, Robert Jastrow was an imminent scientist who worked for NASA. Robert Jastrow called himself an agnostic. But he was an honest agnostic – towards the end of all his scientific research he wrote:

 Now we see how the astronomical evidence supports the biblical view of the origin of the world. The details differ, but the essential elements in the astronomical and biblical accounts of Genesis are the same: the chain of events leading to man commenced suddenly and sharply at a definite moment in time, in a flash of light and energy.  Robert Jastrow, ‘God and the Astronomers’ (W. W. Norton & Company, New York,  (1978), p. 14.


Robert Jastrow also wrote:

 For the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream. He has scaled the mountain of ignorance; he is about to conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries.  Ibid. p. 116.


Jastrow, also recognises the cognitive dissonance problem pervading modern science:

 If he (the scientist), really examined the implications (the evidence for creation), he would be traumatized. As usual when faced with trauma, the mind reacts by ignoring the implications.  Ibid. chapter 6.


The scientific evidence, for Jastrow, points to a supernatural creation:

 That there are what I or anyone would call supernatural forces at work is now, I think a scientifically proven fact.  Robert Jastrow, Christianity Today, August 6, 1982.


Think about that for a moment, the supernatural creation of Christ is now a proven scientific fact, according to this former NASA scientist. Remember what Einstein said: “The more I study science the more I believe in God,” and that is exactly what the Bible told us in Romans, the scientific evidence for creation is self-evident. Jastrow made one more important point in his Christianity Today interview:

 Astronomers now find they have painted themselves into a corner because they have proven, by their own methods, that the world began abruptly in an act of creation to which you can trace the seeds of every star, every planet, every living thing in this cosmos and on the earth. And they have found that all this happened as a product of forces they cannot hope to discover. Ibid.


In other words, science can actually prove a creation, but it can never discover how it happened.  Another scientist, Dr. Hugh Ross, agrees that science confirms the Bible and the creation and he also states that science repudiates all other explanations for our existence:

 Recent scientific discoveries authenticate the Bible, but that they also discredit all the other major religious/theological systems. For example, reincarnation is scientifically impossible. Dr. Hugh Ross, video interview, ‘Science and Biblical Faith are Allies not Enemies’


We can confidently believe in the Biblical account of creation and still be scientific, because science itself has proven that the universe came into existence supernaturally in a moment of time.

However, if there are prominent scientists questioning the so-called scientific consensus on our origins, then a question about their colleagues naturally arises.  And the question is this: if prominent scientists are quitting the anti-creation camp why are the majority of their colleagues still actively promoting evolution and denigrating creation? The answer to that question is because the theory of evolution is not about science at all it’s about politics and it always has been about politics and ideology. Evolution is all about promoting a philosophy and an agenda that is anti-scientific (even though it claims to be scientific) and anti-Christian.  And we do not have to dig very deep to prove this, we only need to look at the book that is considered to be the beginning of the theory, by Charles Darwin. Let’s begin with a revealing quotation from an author who has studied ‘Origin of the Species:’

 Now, it is easy to show that Darwinism, one of the pillars of modern biology, is nothing but a kind of cult, a cult religion. I am not exaggerating. It has no scientific validity whatsoever. Darwin’s so-called theory of evolution is based on absurdly irrational propositions, which did not come from scientific observations, but were artificially introduced from the outside, for political-ideological reasons.  Jonathan Tennenbaum, Summer Academy of the Schiller Institute, Germany, Aug. 18, 2001.


Jonathan Tennenbaum goes on to prove that there is a political/ideological agenda behind the publication of this book, simply by looking at the subtitle of Darwin’s book:

 If you find this hard to believe, just have a close look at Charles Darwin’s classic work, first published in 1859, usually known as Origin of the Species. Actually, the full title is more ominous: Origin of the Species by Means of Natural Selection or the Preservation of the Favoured Races. Ibid.

Imagine if someone was to publish or present a theory today, about preserving the favoured races, we would never hear the end of it.  Such a person would be hounded out of the hallowed halls of academia. It would simply not be permitted, to talk about favoured races, let alone publish books about it. We have forgotten what the original intention with evolution was.  Let’s go one step further back, Darwin himself freely admitted that the inspiration for his theory came from someone else; Jonathan Tennenbaum reveals the source of Darwin’s theory:

 As Darwin himself states very clearly, the essential idea for this theory came from Thomas Malthus. Ibid.

So, who was Thomas Malthus?  Thomas Malthus is famous for just one thing, his essay entitled, ‘An Essay on the Principle of Population’, published in 1798.  Malthus was the first to sound the alarm about the supposed dangers of over population. For example, from his essay we get this quotation:

 The power of population is indefinitely greater than the power in the earth to produce subsistence for man. Thomas Malthus, An Essay on the Principle of Population, p. 13.

This is where the original idea that the world was soon going to be over-populated came from. Darwin’s theory added enough pseudo-science to the theory of over-population to justify the practice of what came to be known as eugenics. And what you may ask is eugenics?  It is a philosophy made popular by Francis Galton, a cousin of Charles Darwin. The reason why we don’t know much about Eugenics, is because it is the scandal of the 20th century which no one wants to acknowledge or talk about. However, in the later part of the 19th century and the early 20th century eugenics was all the rage. At that time eugenics occupied the same place in the scientific community (and the world at large) that global warming or climate change does today. Eugenics was all about applying science to race purity. It was about scientific management of the population of the world. It was about limiting or eliminating unwanted racial features in humanity, and promoting ‘desirable’ racial features.

One does not have to think, hard and long, about how people could come to believe and promote such things. It is simply applied logic. If evolution is true – if progress is made by a process of natural selection – then why not give the process a helping hand – we can be the managers and designers of our own destiny.  If natural selection is true, we can do the selecting, we can create a super race of men. This madness was most prominent in Britain, the United States and Germany. And of course, it was this pseudo-science that led to the horrors of Nazi Germany. And this is why nobody talks about eugenics anymore. So, let’s try to illustrate with an equation. Malthus proposed that the world was in danger of overpopulation and it needed to be controlled.  Darwin, provided a theory as to how environmental factors resulted in human development. Galton put the two of them together to justify artificially altering the environmental factors to determine a desired outcome. The Nazis simply took the whole process to its logical conclusion. This means our equation looks like this:


Evolution + Eugenics = Nazi Atrocities

However, even though eugenics has been discredited, it has not disappeared – it is simply lying dormant in the shadows. Just as Nazism has not disappeared, the philosophy that inspired Nazism has not disappeared. Scientific endeavours based on evolution theory, are just as prevalent today, and even more so than the past. For example, modern scientific pursuits in the areas of cloning, genetically modified food, artificial intelligence and trans humanism are all dependent on the theory of evolution being true, to justify the ‘scientific’ rational for the study and implementation of these digressions into the abyss.  Therefore, today, we not only have political and ideological reasons for the promotion of evolution we now have powerful commercial interests heavily invested in the continuation of the myth of evolution. Thus, the whole world is caught up in a massive case of cognitive dissonance. This state of deception was prophesied a long time ago:

 …and they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.  2 Tim. 4:4.

The evolution/eugenic matrix, is a perfect example of cognitive dissonance at work and it is applicable to the situation we have in the world at large, today. In the history of mankind, we have never had so much education, and yet we have never been more foolish. Modern education has actively and purposely denied the creation of Christ and even punishes those who dare to challenge its propaganda which the Bible calls false science, Paul wrote to his understudy Timothy:

 O Timothy keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane vain babblings and oppositions of science falsely so called.  1 Tim. 6:20.

The theory of evolution, is held out to all and sundry, as this monolithic unassailable scientific certainty, when in actual fact it is a house of cards, and the house is beginning to tumble down. And it is tumbling down from within. And it is tumbling down from within, because the scientists themselves, in the face of mounting evidence, cannot maintain the charade any longer. If we choose to follow the collective cognitive dissonance of society in general, we are in effect the authors of our own destruction. We are like an electrical appliance that reaches over and pulls the plug out of its socket, thus cutting off the source of its power and life. This is why the Bible says:

The fool says in his heart there is no God.  Ps. 14:1.

If we manage to escape the grip of collective cognitive dissonance, we will acknowledge that true science reveals a creation and a Creator, and a Sustainer of that creation, and that is who Jesus is.
