Colossians 1:15-20

Christ Is Supreme

15 Christ is the visible image of the invisible God.
He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation,[e]
16 for through him God created everything
in the heavenly realms and on earth.
He made the things we can see
and the things we can’t see—
such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world.
Everything was created through him and for him.
17 He existed before anything else,
and he holds all creation together.
18 Christ is also the head of the church,
which is his body.
He is the beginning,
supreme over all who rise from the dead.[f]
So he is first in everything.
19 For God in all his fullness
was pleased to live in Christ,
20 and through him God reconciled
everything to himself.
He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth
by means of Christ’s blood on the cross.

Prophecy Countdown to CHRISTmas

Prophecy #10: Messiah's own people would reject Him.
"I have become a stranger to my brothers,
    an alien to my mother's sons."
~Psalm 69:8

"He was despised and rejected by men;
    a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief;
and as one from whom men hide their faces
    he was despised, and we esteemed him not."
 ~Isaiah 53:3 
Fulfilled: John 1:11 and John 7:5 Jesus Christ is the PROMISED MESSIAH!

[Regarding John 7:5, I am pleased to remind you that, after seeing all that was fulfilled in Jesus' life, at least His brother James did believe and become a follower of Christ. God allowed James to be the divinely-inspired writer for the New Testament book of James.]
