The Uncreated One – A.W. Tozer

THE UNCREATED ONE

Psalm 104:24 (NKJV)
O LORD, how manifold are Your works! In wisdom You have made them all.
The earth is full of Your possessions—

You may find this hard to believe, but God is just as far above an archangel as he is above a caterpillar. You know what a caterpillar is—it’s a little worm the size of your finger, with a fur coat. And of course, it’s not a very high-class thing. It’s never been out in society. It doesn’t amount to much—it’s just a worm. And you have to watch it very carefully to know whether it’s traveling west or east, because it looks the same all the way around. That’s a caterpillar.

An archangel, on the other hand, is that holy creature that we see beside the sea of God, in the presence of God’s throne. That mighty creature is a little higher than the angels, just as man was made for a time a little lower. That being can look upon the face of God with unveiled countenance. This is the archangel. It never was in sin, and no one knows how vast it might be. And yet God is just as far above that archangel as He is above the caterpillar.

Why? Because both the archangel and the caterpillar are creatures. And God is the uncreated One who had no beginning, the self-existent One who was never created, but who was simply God, who made all things.
