Job 25: The Maker Of Mystic Mountain
"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"
We live in a Christian universe. God sent the LORD God (Who was and is Jesus Christ - see Genesis 1: In The Beginning Was The Word and The Kingdom Of The LORD God) to do the work of Creation. The universe was created for a Christian purpose, "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."
"1:12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: 1:13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: 1:14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: 1:15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
The LORD God is also known as the Word of God because He was sent by God to speak the Word of God i.e. "14:10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works." (John 14:10 KJV). That is why "All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made" and "The Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father."
"1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God. 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
When His work of Creation was done, the LORD God created His seventh-day Christian Sabbath (see Why Observe The True Sabbath?).
"2:1 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
Job friends (see A Friend In Deed) were righteous men who understood the reality of the Creator. Their only failure was a short-sightedness of when the Creator of Life will put away the author of evil (see The Light Of Darkness).
"25:1 Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said,
Fact Finder: What is the purpose of the Church of God? What does "church" actually mean? When will the Church of God become the Kingdom of God?
