2 Corinthians 1:20 For all of God’s promises have been fulfilled in Christ with a resounding “Yes!” And through Christ, our “Amen” (which means “Yes”) ascends to God for his glory.
For Christ is the exact living image [the essential manifestation] of the unseen God [the visible representation of the invisible], the firstborn [the preeminent one, the sovereign, and the originator] of all creation (Col 1:15). In this capacity therefore, his position as presented by Paul is validated.
Therefore, He puts his integrity on the line, and vouches for those promises –
Christ takes His place as the ‘face of God’s promises’. He has become the leading model and poster-boy, the go to figure whenever the promises of God are highlighted.
This is so that with a firm gaze on Him, we will align with Him in agreement with an ‘Amen’, our very own Yes.
