Absolutely: And the Word Was God

via TJC


This and next week TJC is addressing core items we consider “absolutes”; those items often discussed and addressed in cultural dialogs, where we align with God’s word.  We all know people whose life experience and decisions are different and we know God loves us all the same, however His Word is not up for debate as a Kingdom Man/Family.

If you do not agree please respond in our comment section as we would love to have a “curious conversation” and listen to you.


In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning.” ~John 1:1-2 


We Believe in one God, three parts Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

 

These two verses hold significant importance within Christian theology. They serve as a foundational introduction to the Gospel of John, and provide insight into the divine nature of Jesus Christ. In just two succinct sentences, John encapsulates the essence of Jesus as the eternal Word and establishes His preexistence.

 

Perhaps many of us think of Jesus as an offspring of God, maybe even a “second in command,” but the Trinity didn’t begin when God “created” Jesus; it has been true from the beginning. As Kingdom men, our own confidence in the Gospel is an important part of disciple-making. While we may not be able to explain everything in the Bible, we can find great peace and clear evidence of the truth in these two verses

 

John 1:1 begins with the declaration, "1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God " Here, the term "Word" refers to Jesus Christ, who existed before time and creation. This verse underscores the unique relationship between Jesus and God, as the Word was both with God and is divine. This statement confirms Jesus' divine nature, and His equality with God.

 

John 1:2 states, "He was with God in the beginning." This verse reaffirms Jesus' eternal existence alongside God. It solidifies the notion of the Trinity, comprising of God the Father, God the Son (Jesus), and God the Holy Spirit.

 

These opening verses of John's Gospel establish a fundamental framework for our understanding of Jesus Christ. They establish His eternal existence, His divine status, and His intimate relationship with God. 

 

Daily Battle Order: 

Speak with your family about the origins of the Holy Trinity. Discuss with those around you to better understand how Jesus was not simply created in Mary’s womb, but has always been, though He was incarnated in the womb to take Human form. The Trinity of God is indeed and has always been.
