Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Colossians 1:14

1:14 In whom we have redemption - This is treated of from the middle of #Col 1:18|. The voluntary passion of our Lord appeased the Father's wrath, obtained pardon and acceptance for us, and, consequently, dissolved the dominion and power which Satan had over us through our sins. So that forgiveness is the beginning of redemption, as the resurrection is the completion of it.

People's Bible Notes for Colossians 1:14

Col 1:14 In whom we have redemption through his blood. We are redeemed from sin. We were in bondage, but have been purchased. Satan holds us under bondage until our sins are blotted out. The price paid is his blood. Compare Eph 1:7.

    To answer you Jo's,Please read Isaiah 55:8,9 and Romans 11:33,34. You cannot fanthom the nature and work of God.And God didnt put man on earth with Satan.Satan was overthrown from heaven due to his pride onto the earth.Read Isaiah 14:12-14,Ezekial 28:15-17,Rev.12:7-9.On earth he deceived Adam and Eve and sin originated which result in death and which means the separation between God and Man.In creation,God spoke and His Word brought those spoken things into existence.So everything,seen and unseen things were brought into existence by the Word of God.This word is Jesus Christ whom Paul said everything was created by Him and for Him.Hence we humans,been His inheritance,He became one of us to redeem us from sin and bring immortality to light.He accomplisd this upon his death and resurection when he defeated Satan who had the power over death-Heb.2:14-15,Rev.1:18.Now upon His return,he will punish Satan and those who refuse to obey him by sending them to eternal destruection.He will however glorify His Saint and we will assume His nature and be like him.He wl take us to heaven and there we will be with him forever.2Th1:8,9,1Jn.3:2,3,1Th.4:16-19,1Cor.15:51-54.Pls read all versus.

    Verse 16,17.In the begining God created everything by His Word.He Spoke and the Spoken Word brought seen things from unseen things.So all things came from God but His Word brought them into existence. This Word is Jesus the Son of God.This is why the gospel according to John recorded that "All things were made by Him and without Him was anything made that was made".So the Word brought everything into existence.This shows His superiority over creation.That why Paul said "He is the firstborn of creation,by Him all things were created".Our Lord Jesus Christ is our Life because He gave life to all things that came from the Father.Let us obey His commands so as to have eternal salvation for our souls.
  • If God is a Spirit, why did He create things physical? If then God created all things for him, why did He put man on this earth with satan. Again a sprit with physical.
