Hebrews 7:9 ^^^ Christ ^^^ Colossians 1:15-17
Go to Hebrews: Look at this verse: "And as I may so say, Levi also, who receiveth tithes, payed tithes in Abraham. For he was yet in the loins of his father, when Melchisedec met him" (Heb. 7:9).
The order is Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and then Levi... yet Levi is considered to be the one who pays tithes to Melchisedec... yet before he is born, he is existing. And therefore you can understand that the Son (Christ) is the Creator (creating), before He is born of woman.
That is why we read in Colossians: "Who is the image of the invisible God, the Firstborn of every creature: For by Him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible.... all things were created by Him and for Him: And he is before all thins, and by Him all things consist" (Col. 1:15-17).
In the Heavenly working: Christ comes forth from the bosom of the Father (John 1:18), Who is the LORD God of the OT. Christ is called "Lord of the sabbath day." (Matt. 12:8)... because on the 7th day of creation is the 1st day Christ begins His work. The first 6 days we see the working of God (Elohim).... on the 7th day God (Elohim rests). On the day God (Elohim) rests, we see the Lord God (Christ) form man from the dust and make woman from the rib of man (Gen. 2:7; 2:22). I see the races of man-kind created on the 6th day, 6 being the number of man, created by God, THEN on the 7th day Christ forms man, a new race, the Adamic race, Gen. 2 begins with greater detail of this race. Then later in Gen. 6, we see the angels (sons of God) with the daughters of men coming forth with a new "giant" race, which was destroyed in the flood during Noah's time. Then we also have a generation of Vipers during Christ's ministry whose father is Satan... which comes from the eating of the tree of Good and Evil back in Genesis.... here are your two groups of man within the Adamic race... coming forth first from Eve as Cain and Abel.
Also notice in Genesis: "And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life...." (Gen. 2:7) And what does Christ do with the twelve? He breathed on them (John 20:22). Here we see the Lord God OT and the Lord God NT, Who? Christ.
Now also you can have a better understanding that Christ is indeed God and what it means that "the Father and I are One"... etc etc. Now you may ask: how is it the Father and the Son are One and the Father can speak from the heavens and say "this is my beloved Son"... Answer: the same way I can say Christ is in me... and Christ is in you... and Christ sitteth at the right hand of the Father... and is God. :-}
Something to ponder,
