    Love this he did create the heaven and earth

    John in the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the WORD was God and think about it the Word is the LIGHT! And the Word created all things. And the Word said let us make man in OUR image and He didn't leave Himself out because He said when you have seen Me you've seen the Father. Father wouldn't ask us to do something He wouldn't do but He loved us with all His heart paid a price.
