he is the Creator: For by him were all things created, which are in heaven and earth, visible and invisible. He made all things out of nothing, the highest angel in heaven, as well as men upon earth.
He made the world with all the inhabitants. All things were made by him, and without him was not any thing made which was made, John 1:3.
Christ is the eternal wisdom of the Father, and the world was made in wisdom. He is the eternal Word, and the world was made by the word of God. He is the arm of the Lord, and the world was made by that arm. All things are created by him and for him. Being created by him, they were created for him; being made by his power, they were made according to his pleasure and for his praise.
He is the end, as well as the cause of all things.
