The pre-eminence of JESUS, the CHRIST, the ‘ruler’ over GOD’s creation (Revelation 3:14).
John 1:-3 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.
Hebrews 1:1-3…¶ In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe. The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word.
1 Corinthians 8:6… yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live.
1 John 5:1-12…And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
1 John 2:23 No-one who denies the Son has the Father; whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also.
1 John 2:22-23…Who is the liar? It is the man who denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a man is the antichrist—he denies the Father and the Son. No-one who denies the Son has the Father; whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also.
There are many other scriptures that I could post. These pretty much sum up the facts, though. GOD, the Father, has put all things under CHRIST for now. So much so, that you can’t circumvent CHRIST if you have any plans of getting to the FATHER. HE is the ‘gate’, the ‘door’, the ‘way’ to the FATHER. GOD said so. JESUS was the perfect manifestation of the FATHER. If you reject HIM, how aren’t you rejecting the FATHER?
