“Our inordinate fear of man is a tacit forgetfulness of God. When we disquiet ourselves with the fear of man, we forget that there is a God above him, and that the greatest of men have no power but what is given them from above…” – Matthew Henry

“God, the Creator and Redeemer, presides over all. He is unchanged. He ever lives; and though the universe should pass away, it will be only at His bidding, and under His direction.” – Barnes’

Notes

“There is no higher proof of omnipotence than the work of creation; and hence, God often appeals to that work to prove that he is the true God, in opposition to idols.” – Barnes’

Notes

Hebrews 1:10-12 says of the Lord Jesus – “And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of Thine hands: They shall perish, but Thou remainest: and they all shall wax old as doth a garment; And as a vesture shalt Thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but Thou art the same, and Thy years shall not fail.”

Here we see the superior excellence of the Lord Jesus elaborated on. This passage of Scriptures depicts His eternity… omnipotence… dignity and excellency…and right to govern the world.

The present form, frame, or fashion of the world will pass away and be destroyed. Heaven and earth will wear out. All created things will grow old. Yet Jesus will remain – without any change or alteration whatsoever. Unlike creation, He will continue forever the same.

It is so important that we as Christians get a glimpse of Jesus as the Great Creator & Eternal God. When arguing that He is indeed God, the writer of Hebrews did not fail to mention the fact that he is the Creator of the universe.

Genesis 1:1 starts it off for us – “In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth.” This is Elohim – signifying the Strong and the Mighty One. What did He do? He “created” – made something new… gave being to something new…made something out of nothing.

John 1:1-3 says – “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made.” Here we are introduced to the Logos – the manifestation or expression of God called the “Word.” He was “with God” – meaning that He is distinct yet closely connected in intimate and close union with God for He “was God” in essence and substance. He is the eternal deity from whence the universe derived its being. “Without Him was not anything made that was made.”

Revelation 3:14 refers to Him as “the beginning of the creation of God.” He is the head and governor of all creatures…the King of creation…and the efficient cause of every creature.

It is He Who “laid the foundations of the earth” (Job 38:4).

Isaiah 48:13 says of Him – “Mine hand also hath laid the foundation of the earth, and My right hand hath spanned the heavens…”

Isaiah 51:13 adds – “…that hath stretched forth the heavens, and laid the foundations of the earth…”

Isaiah 51:16 once again confirms that He is the One Who “plants the heavens; and lays the foundations of the earth…”

In Jeremiah 32:17, the Prophet broke out into praise of Him with these words – “Ah Lord GOD! behold, Thou hast made the heaven and the earth by Thy great power and stretched out arm…”

The Prophet in Zechariah 12:1 identified Him as such – “…saith the LORD, Which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth…”

In Psalm 8, David added this in His praise of Him – “When I consider Thy heavens, the work of Thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which Thou hast ordained.”

What these Scriptures all confirm is the fact that Jesus Christ is the One and only true God and indeed the God of power and might. Resultantly, we can trust in Him at all times.

He is the Creator Who has all power and is abundantly able to deliver. Because His hand “laid the foundations of the earth” and “stretched out the heavens”, He is said to have a far reach. The “heavens” are “the work of His fingers.” He is the Being of all power, life, motion, and perfection.

Why is it so important that we as the Church emphasize these Scriptures or attributes of the Lord Jesus?

Because it proves that He is well able to defend His people and deliver them from their foes.

In Isaiah 51:11-12, we find this word from the LORD – “I, even I, am He that comforteth you: who art thou, that thou shouldest be afraid of a man that shall die, and of the son of man which shall be made as grass; and forgettest the LORD thy maker, That hath stretched forth the heavens, and laid the foundations of the earth; and hast feared continually every day because of the fury of the oppressor, as if he were ready to destroy? And where is the fury of the oppressor?”

Every day…hour…and moment the people of God were fearing and trembling before their oppressors. They found themselves always in a panic. Their focus was on the fact that there was an oppressor – Babylon – and that it was furious and had specific designs against them. They actually trembled before an image in their minds of an enemy who they felt was ready to crush them in the dust or cut their throat. Their problem was that they were focusing on the wrong thing. They totally forgot the Lord God Who was on their side – the God Who was the Creator of heaven and earth and had all power at His disposal.

Today is no different. We, too, have to face the “fury of the oppressor” every day…hour…and moment. He also presents himself as “ready to destroy” and, unfortunately, many of God’s people are buying into his lies.

However, God has a question for His church today – In the light of the Lord Jesus Christ – the One Who “stretched forth the heavens, and laid the foundations of the earth.” That question is – “Where is the fury of the oppressor?” (Isaiah 51:13) What is there to dread when you have the Creator of the universe on your side?

Romans 8:31 says – “What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?”

Psalm 118:6 says – “The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?”

Why are you fearing every day…hour…and moment because of some “oppressor” who is harassing you?

“Remember now thy Creator…” (Ecclesiastes 12:1).

Read again the opening quotes –

“Our inordinate fear of man is a tacit forgetfulness of God. When we disquiet ourselves with the fear of man, we forget that there is a God above him, and that the greatest of men have no power but what is given them from above…”

“God, the Creator and Redeemer, presides over all. He is unchanged. He ever lives; and though the universe should pass away, it will be only at His bidding, and under His direction.”

“There is no higher proof of omnipotence than the work of creation; and hence, God often appeals to that work to prove that he is the true God, in opposition to idols.”

Your God is the true and living God. He has all power. He is eternal, and He will never change.

“And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of Thine hands: They shall perish, but Thou remainest: and they all shall wax old as doth a garment; And as a vesture shalt Thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but Thou art the same, and Thy years shall not fail” (Hebrews 1:10-12).
