Words of Truth from the Proverbs
There are those who declare that the Old Testament doesn’t have references to Jesus as the Son of God. Yet, the references are throughout the OT from Genesis through the Prophets, as well as the Psalms and Proverbs.
As a matter of fact, Proverbs 30 verse 4 declares:
4 Who has ascended into heaven, or descended? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has bound the waters in a garment? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His name, and what is His Son’s name, If you know?
Not only is there the reference to both ascending and descending, but also the very clear reference as to His Son: What is His name, and what is His Son’s name?
No human could meet all the requirements of these questions. The writer speaks of someone greater than Man. So, who does he speak about? What is His name?
Well, I’m here to tell you His name is the Great “I Am”, Jehovah or YHWH; and His Son’s name is Jesus of Nazareth, the Promised One, the Messiah of Israel.
The writer of Proverbs understood that the One who holds the wind in His fists and bounds the waters like a garment is the One True God and He has a Son… Jesus is His name.
It is through Jesus that the earth was formed. The Apostle Paul clarifies it for us in the book of Colossians 1:15-17. I speaking about Jesus Christ, Paul declares:
15 He (Jesus) is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For by Him (Jesus) all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. 17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.
If you are searching for the answer as to who is the creator of all that we see and know, you don’t need to look any further than Jesus, the Son of God, the Almighty, the Prince of Peace. He is the One who descended from Heaven and took the form of humanity upon Himself. He is the One who bore our sins on the cross, was crucified, died and buried, but on the third day rose again, then He ascended back into heaven where He stands at the Throne of God the Father continually making intersession for us.
