John 1: 1-3
John 3:13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but He that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.
Jesus has been living in eternity in heaven, the headquarters of creation, even before the existence of this earth. There is a clear difference between Adam (and the seeds after him) who are from beneath and created in this world and Jesus Christ, who was from above and created them.
They are of this world while Jesus is not of this world (…I am not of this world). Jesus is superior to any man you can ever imagine or think of. He is not a man in the ordinary sense of it but became one as a “Son” to offer Himself as a sacrificial Lamb to take away the sin of the world.
Jesus is God Himself who lived in heaven from eternity. His title “Son” is a redemptive title. The Father sent the Son for the purpose of human redemption, yet this title is not an everlasting one as if it has always been there for eternity.
“The Word” which is also called “the Son” is our Lord Jesus Christ and the Father is called God, the Father.
The fact that the Father is called God does not mean the Son is not God or that the Holy Spirit is not God.
God is one. Jesus Christ the Son and God the Father are one just as The Holy Spirit and Jesus Christ are one with the Father.
The three Persons are one God of creation.
God does not have to meet with a woman to give birth to Himself. Jesus, the Son of God is God Himself and the three Persons of the Godhead are one all through eternity.
Jesus was involved in creation together with the Father and the Holy Spirit. He was involved in the creation of man and woman. He was involved in the creation of all things in this universe. He was involved in the creation together with the Father.
Colossians 1:16 For by Him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him, and for Him.
Thought for the day:
The Son of God is God Himself.
Song for the day:
Thank You Jesus, You are the Owner of my soul
Bible reading for the day:
1 Chronicles 3-5; John 8:1-20
