  • Colossians 1:16 says “For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth.”

    The entire universe and every molecule, atom and electron were created by Jesus Christ. Everything we cannot see with our physical senses is called the invisible realm and has been created by God.

    Jesus Christ is lord of the universe and his authority is above all negative cosmic powers including the powers of darkness. By his power the whole universe and every created thing is held together. Jesus is the ultimate source.
