It is so wonderful for us to know that the God, whom we adore, is the creator of the universe. He has always existed.
Some time far back in the eternal history of the universe, Israel`s God bore Jesus. God says to him:
«You are my Son; this day I have born you.» (Psalms 2: 7.)
And when God created the earth and the life on it, Jesus – called the Wisdom, was there with his Father. Jesus says:
«Before the mountains were settled in their place … I WAS BORN … Then I was at his side each day, his darling and delight, playing in his presence continually, playing on the earth, when HE had finished it, while my delight was in mankind.» (Prov.8: 25.30-31.)
God, the Father is the Creator. The Norwegian translation says that Jesus – when his Father created the earth – the Son was with him as his ARTIST, (verse 30.)
This wonderful story, describes to us the great difference between the Father and the Son. The Father is the Creator, the Son is his Artist. Jesus says about himself and his Father:
«The Son can do nothing by himself; he does only what he sees the Father doing.» (John 5: 19.)
But how can Paul then say about Jesus:
«In him everything in heaven and on earth was created, not only things visible but also the invisible orders of thrones, sovereignties, authorities, and powers : the whole universe has been created through him and for him. And he exists before everything, and all things are held together in him.» (Coloss.1: 15-17.)
According to what Jesus himself is saying in John 5: 19 – this is a terrible lie.
«The Son can do nothing by himself; he does only what he sees the Father doing.»
The Father has always lived and always created – also before He bore Jesus. This is an evidence of Paul being a false teacher.
