If Jesus did not come nothing would have happened.
Jesus is the Logos. Everything was created with His coming in mind. It was the “prime thought” of God- a revelation of Himself to a creation He would bring into fellowship with Himself.
The creation was without form and void until the voice spoke, “Let there be light”. Jesus is the light of the world, the light that lights evryone who comes into the world.
“For He was foreknown before the foundation of the world, but has appeared in these last times for the sake of you” 1 Pet:20
Everything that is was done for our sakes, and we were created in Christ Jesus for the sake of the whole creation(Rom 8).
15He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him. 17He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. 18He is also head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that He Himself will come to have first place in everything. 19For it was the Father’s good pleasure for all the fullness to dwell in Him, 20and through Him to reconcile all things to Himself, having made peace through the blood of His cross; through Him, I say, whether things on earth or things in heaven. Col 1
The Father’s good pleasure was not conceived after the creation. It was conceived before anything else of any kind happened.
God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, 2 in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world. 3 And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power. Heb 1
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. John 1
All things came into being through Him. All things are by Him and for Him. He is the Logos, the reason, the prime thought of God. Evry thing that is depends on His coming, and the reason for His coming, to bring the creation into full fellowship with the Creator.
I personally believe Christ crucified is the reason for everything, so if He doesnt come, everything- backwards and forwards, ceases to exist.
"By faith we understand that the universe was formed by God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible. " He 11:3
What we see began somewhere we cannot see, in Him, In Jesus- all things began and subsist- all all for the purpose of His sacrifice- which delivers the divine nature into us as a “new creation” and makes us friends of God, and is the reason for everything- the Lamb slain form the foundation of the world, redeeming the whole creation until God is “all in all”.
In all wisdom and insight 9 He made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His kind intention which He purposed in Him 10 with a view to an administration suitable to the fullness of the times, that is, the summing up of all things in Christ, things in the heavens and things on the earth.Eph 1
God’s kind intention was purposed in Christ before the creation, with a view to summing up all things in Him through the administration of time. SInce all things were created through Him with this in view, if He were not to come- and since all we see is created with material that is unseen, which is the word of God, which is the reason of God and the “prime thought” of God. Nothing would exist.
Thank God Jesus did come, and all creation will receive reconciliation through the blood of His cross, and restoration by “the power with which He is able to subject all things to Himself”. Phil 3
I know I over worked that a bit but I dont have time to edit it.
