ST PAUL WROTE A LETTER TO THE
Christ Jesus is the image of the invisible God, the
firstborn of all creation.
For in him were created all things in heaven and on
earth, the visible and the invisible, whether
thrones or dominions or principalities or powers;
all things were created through him and for him.
He is before all things, and in him all things hold
He is the head of the body, the church.
He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead,
that in all things he himself might be preeminent.
For in him all the fullness was pleased to dwell, and
through him to reconcile all things for him,
making peace by the blood of his cross
through him, whether those on earth or those in
heaven (Corinthians 1:15-20)

and Eve had lost through sin,
And he fulfill the Plan that the Father had have in the
beginning for us—To share in His divine life.
THE STORY IS NOT OVER, YET!
