Jesus is the “Voice of God”

Psalm 29:4 says “The voice of the LORD is powerful; the voice of the LORD is full of majesty.”.  In the Hebrew language, the concept “full of majesty” implies grand, sublime, overpowering, overwhelming.  By his voice, God created the entire universe.  Let no one deceive you.  God spoke and what did NOT exist came into existence.  There was no big bang .. only the voice of God. There was absolutely nothing and God’s voice created everything in the universe  .. with only one exception .. God created you and me lovingly with his own hands. (Gen 2:4) He formed us from the dust of the ground in his own image and breathed into us his own spirit.  WOW, how fantastic .. how special does that make us !!

John 1:1 says “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God.…”.  So Jesus himself is called the “Word”.  When someone speaks, it’s the “Word” that is spoken so it could be said that Jesus being the “Word” and being God was himself full of majesty.  There is not any doubt about it.  Jesus himself IS the voice of the Lord that is full of majesty and that he created the universe and all that we know in the physical world.  Consider these verses .. “Through him [Jesus] all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.” (John 1:3) .. “For by him [Jesus] all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him.” (Colossians 1:16)

I am so grateful that we can worship Jesus as God and am even more grateful that he created you and me in his image.  One more thing .. did you now that this belief regarding Jesus is unique to the Christian faith ?  No other religion on earth holds this truth to be absolute.  It’s what makes us Christians.
