The Lord Jesus Made Everything…
The Amplified Bible puts it, “All things were made and came into existence through Him; without Him was not even one thing made that has come into being,” John 1:3.
I am not really that much into poetry, but the other night a man gave me a poem I enjoyed> It made me think of Romans 11:33, “O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgements, and His ways past finding out!”
The maker of the universe
As Man, for man was made a curse.
The claims of law which He had made,
Unto the uttermost He paid.
His holy fingers made the bow
Which grew the thorns that crowned His brow.
The nails that pierced His hands were mixed
In secret places He designed.
He made the forest whence there sprung
The tree on which His body hung,
He died upon the cross of wood,
Yet made the hill on which it stood.
The sky that darkened o’er His head
By Him above the earth was spread.
The sun that hid from Him its face
By His decree was poised in space.
The spear which spilled His precious blood
Was tempered in the fires of God.
The grave in which His form was laid,
Was hewn in rocks His hands had made.
The throne on which He now appears
Was His from everlasting years.
But a new glory crowns His brow,
And every knee to Him shall bow
