Who are the the he's, him's and other personal pronouns referring to in Colossians 1:15-22?

These verses in Colossians 1:15-22 use the personal pronouns he, him, himself, etc. in these passages, and it is confusing for me to follow the personages. I believe most 'he's and 'him's' refer to Jesus, but would it be possible for someone to substitute 'Jesus' or 'God', instead of the personal pronouns so it is easier to understand. Thank you!

Colossians 1:15 - 22

ESV - 15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16 For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities - all things were created through him and for him.
