Answers for Skeptics: Who Created Heaven and Earth?

The Bible makes it clear that God is the creator of the heaven and the earth in Genesis 1:1 and Isaiah 44:24. But the skeptics do speak well when they argue that the Bible also gives credit to Jesus; for He is (indeed) the Creator. The Bible contains mysteries and riddles whose answers will be revealed to those who truly seek them. The following passages will reveal our Creator to be none other than Jesus:

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light (*Jesus*), that all men through him (*Jesus*) might believe. He (*John*) was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light (*Jesus*). That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. He (*Jesus*) was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. John 1:6-10

By him (*Jesus*) were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him. Colossians 1:16

Jesus indeed made the Heavens and the earth because…(wait for it)…He is God! John Chapter 1 verses 1-3 and verse 14 all do a great job of revealing our Creator. They reads as follows:

1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2The same was in the beginning with God.
3All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

14And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

The Bible also says that this very same “Word” that became Jesus would be called “Wonderful, Councellor, the Mighty God, Everlasting Father” (in Isaiah 9:6)…because He is God! The name Jesus translates to “God saves”. He was also given the name Immanuel meaning “God with us”. Additionally, the Bible refers to Him as the image of the invisible God in Colossians 1:15. So yes. Jesus made the world before He entered the fleshly body and became known by that name. But while Jesus is God, He is also the mediator who reconciled humanity to Himself.
