He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him.
1 Corinthians 8:6
yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live.
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.
but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe.
