All things continue to exist through the word or power speech of the Word

God spoke all things in to being as we read in Genesis chapter 1:

The Beginning

(John 1:1-5)

1In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

The First Day: Light

3And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. 4And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. 5And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

Just as God “spoke”, and continues to “speak” all things in to being the Word preserves the existence of  that same being by the speech of his power:

Hebrews 1 v 3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; 4 Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.

The writer of the Hebrews states that this power is an attribute of the Son himself. The text does not say that this power to sustain the existence of all things belongs to God but expressly states that it is the possession of the Son himself, “his power”.

This shows that those religions, like Unitarianism and Islam, that try to rob the Son of his power and deny it to him, are false religions and should be avoided like the plague.

    Jesus vs. the Word:
    Jn 14:24
    And the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.
    Jn 14:10
    The words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.

    Jn 7:16
    Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.

    Jesus is called tabernacle (Eskenusen) in John 1:14, just like the Ark of Covenant wherein Jehovah indwells. The Ark acts the vessel that speaks on behalf of Jehovah’s name, answers and decides the religious edicts. But nobody ever makes a deification of the Ark.

    During the time of the Judges, the High Priests used to consult the Ark by throwing the lot, and its decision is the valid religious verdict

    Prior to the act of creating:
    i) God was remaining silent or inaudible.
    ii) Nature’s ability to speak during the time of silence is not synonymous to the Word.
    Silence is not a speech. Silence is not the audible Word. Ability to speak during the time of silence is synonymous to the abstract mind.
    iii) The Word had not yet been.
    iv) The Light had not yet been.

    The Book of Genesis is very Unitarian because it proves that besides the Word is produced, the Light also is produced.

    If Jesus is the Word, it means he was made on the 1st Day breaking out the silence of Jehovah. Hence, Jesus the Word must be creation.
    If Jesus is the Light, it means he was made on the 1st Day coming out the will and mouth of Jehovah, and the Light became visible, limited, containable, temporal and relative . Hence, Jesus the Light must be creation.
    Jn 1:9
    That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
    Jn 12:46
    I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.
    vs.
    Gen 1
    3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. 4 And God saw the light.
