Creation and Created

He was foreknown before the foundation of the world but was made manifest in the last times for the sake of you
who through him are believers in God, who raised him from the dead and gave him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.

1 Peter 1:20-21

…whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

Rev 13:8

who saved us and called us to a holy calling, not because of our works but because of his own purpose and grace, which he gave us in Christ Jesus before the ages began

2 Tim 1:9

Creation and Created

A poem

As we uttered our first words of life into the empty cosmos,
as we spoke the universe into existence:
stars and planets, moons and stars;
as we created the firmament and the planet Earth,
and as we set it all into motion…..
we knew what our creation would mean
for us.

Speaking life into the lifeless,
populating the empty void,
and establishing order and beauty:
we knew what lay ahead.

With great precision,
surpassing all that preceded,
we formed the first of many in our own image.

With delight, we viewed our finished work,
knowing our labour was just beginning.

Already,
perfection was becoming flawed,
as darkness crept into the light:
poised….. waiting…..
with immense fury and hatred…..
ready to pounce and destroy.

We already knew of this.

With total realisation of
the separation and suffering that would follow,
with deep awareness of
the torment and pain that lay ahead,
and with joyous anticipation of
our ultimate victory,
we continued…..
setting into course our ultimate plan…..

At the pre-appointed time Father and Son separated:
I relinquished my glory.
I became united with my creation.
I became one of my created beings.

Our intentions would be revealed,
and our purpose fulfilled.

I lived in the darkness
as the light of the world.
I lived amongst sinners
and bore every sin.

I lived with the poor and had nothing for myself.
I lived in the distress and anguish of a fallen world,
and was pierced and crushed.
I lived amongst the decay and ruin of diseased mankind,
easing the pain of the suffering
and taking it upon myself.

I carried all your filth and shame
in agony, on the cross.

I revealed my love for you!

You who live in self satisfaction and pride…..
you who live in carelessness and sloth…..
you who live in riches and greed…..
I know you!
I love you!
I came for you!

You who live in loneliness and fear……
you who live in distress…..
you who are searching and lost…..
I know you!
I love you!
I came for you!

You who long for life…..
you who long for love…..
you who long for truth…..
I know you!
I love you!
I came for you!

You who are filled with pride,
I humbled myself for you.

You who seek for deity within…..
you need to seek for Me.

You who think you are a god!
The one true God became a man
and gave His life for you!

Your creator died in your place
to give you life!

Your creator gave himself
for his creation.
Your creator put himself into the hands
of his creation.
Your creator allowed himself to be put to death
by his creation.
Your creator overcame death,
and lives today!

I did it all for you!
