The Universe is a Metaphor for Jesus: The Foundational Premise of this Blog

I need to apologize.

No, not THAT kind of apologize.

The meaning of the word "apology" used to be a defense of some assertion of truth.

This blog asserts the following the truth: Jesus Christ, a member of the Triune God, the Son of God, i.e. Jesus is God Himself, created the heavens and the earth. The universe is a metaphor for Jesus. Everything, from the way wood grains were created in a tree to the way the constellations are arranged -- and yes, even the way sound waves in music behave -- point back to Him. They point out some facet, no matter how small, of Jesus Christ and His eternal, divine nature. Colossians 1:15-17 says it this way (NIV):

The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.

Romans 1:20 says it this way:

For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

Paul said it again in Ephesians 3:8-9 (NKJV):

To me, who am less than the least of all the saints, this grace was given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, and to make all see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the ages has been hidden in God who created all things through Jesus Christ.

This assertion, that the universe is a metaphor for Jesus, takes the premise of intelligent design a step further and says, "Not only do we see evidence of an intelligent personality within the designs of Creation, we see evidence that this intelligent personality is Jesus Himself -- and the Father and the Holy Spirit, since they all partake in the glory together.

It is from this broad foundation, this presupposition of the Father's grand plan for Creation, that I focus in on one specific corner of creation -- the laws of sound and music theory -- to search for Jesus.

Join me in that search!
