God Spoke The World Into Existence
Text: John 1
The song is sung in Chinese with subtitles in English.
By sound, that is through Words, the universe has come into existence.
So in the beginning was the The Creator’s Voice. What is He like?
In LOVE, He has created man in His image. So we know we are like Him, a person, a life.
Alas, man has fallen into darkness and become lost sheep.
So HE came into the world in Person to visit, provide the light and redeem His people.
He has the Words of eternal life，the first Word and the last Word.
He is Father, Son and Spirit, all in One, a mystery beyond the understanding of men.
About 4,500 years ago, when the Chinese invented their writings, they formed the word “COME” by drawing a cross with 2 small men by the side and a big man in the centre.
2,000 years ago, this was exactly the picture of Jesus being crucified at the Cross with two thieves one on each side. And HE is asking man to COME to Him to receive life and to have it more abundantly.
Why the Cross?
Jesus must be lifted up from the earth so that all men could be drawn to Him.
God created the heavens and the earth in six days.
So after six hours on the Cross, Jesus said “It is finished!”
