That Christ pre-existed before his birth as God is made plain in the Holy Scriptures. The gospel according to St. John has shed light surrounding the mystery of His pre-existence. John began his gospel massage with the introduction of Christ’s pre-existence to the lost world standing in need of a great Saviour and eternal life, and said:
“In the beginning was the word and word was with God and the word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him; and without him was not anything made that was made”Jn – 1:1-3.
Here, we are being informed that Christ was in the eternal world with God the Father in the beginning. Furthermore, we are told that Christ was God’s Agent of creation. This means that the Lord Jesus was there at the time of creation as a Co-Creator with God the Father. The detailed information we have received from the Holy Spirit indicates that Christ was not only instrumental in the creation of this world, but also in the creation of the whole universe.
I quote:“For through him were all things created, that are in heaven, that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or Dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created through Him, and for Him” – col. 1:16.
The Christology on His pre-existence shows that He was God before His birth., Hence His ability to co-operate with God the Father in bringing into existence out of emptiness the good things we now see and feel. The Deity of Christ is, therefore, a fact without dispute.
Of His mission on earth, the anointed Apostle Paul testifies:
“And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness; God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory” -1 Timo. 3:16.
That Christ pre-existed in eternity is reported in many passages of the Scriptures. One of these remarkable statements as regards His Deity was made by St. Paul to indicate that our Lord Jesus came into this world as God incarnate to dwell and die in our place on the cross. This great mystery of Christ’s Divinity is unfolded to all salvation-seekers with a view to make known to them His actual identity. The knowledge of Christ’s is essential, because it’s the spring-board of faith in His salvation work on earth. Any salvation-seeker that lacks this all-important knowledge of Christ’s divinity is short of the saving truth. Under this condition, the fellow may regard Him as an ordinary human being, also standing in need of salvation.
Anyone that regards our dear Lord as an ordinary human being has erred concerning the gospel truth. This mistaken belief has led to the destruction of masses. But, the issue about Christ’s Divinity, to St. Paul, who was once a persecutor, is without controversy. The fact is that Christ is the son of God, and is therefore God without doubt. As God, He was made manifest in the human flesh with the supreme power of the Almighty.
Beloved, the Good News of the hour is that God the Father has offered to this suffering world community an unspeakable Gift in the person of our Lord Jesus Christ, who is able to put on miraculous performances of deliverance with efficiency! Through the gospel according to St. John, the credentials of the God-given Savior have been presented to all the world, by the way of divine introduction. God has recommended Him to all perishing nations that His only begotten Son is the only personality, capable of saving them from sufferings and the bandage of death, because His son was with Him as His Co-Creator – Jn. 1: 1-3.
Beloved, the Co-Creator of the universe has now come to us to save us from darkness to light. The unique status of Christ as revealed to us at this time of the gospel is the unshakable foundation of the Christian faith. All salvation-seekers should know that the salvation work is in hands of the Creator Himself: “He spoke, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast” Ps. 33:9
In the last day, the Creator-Saviour, with His omnipotent power, shall arise to effect deliverance world-wide on the part of those who may have responded to the heavenly call to repentance and faith in His name. He shall arise to abolish death to bring immortality to light. That day, great events without precedent in the history of mankind shall happen in the lives of the saints, that the old order might give way to the new. The sudden change in the last day is a sure word of prophecy! Good days are coming! Therefore, beloved ones please make it a point to prepare yourselves according to the Scriptures for the good days ahead!
Truly, good days are ahead of us. It’s being announced that in the next new world “affliction shall not rise up the second time” – Nah. 1:9.
Dearly beloved, repent ye and believe the gospel. The time is at hand.
To attain to the stage of perfection, please study and obey the Holy Scriptures. For all the scripture is given by the inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine reproof, correction, and for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly famished in all good works – 2 Timo. 3: 16-17.
The grace of God has appeared to us in the person of Christ Jesus to make all repentant sinners perfect. He is the Alpha and Omega, the fist and the last, who pre-existed in eternity as God, and came to us by birth as human being. Those of us who wish to enjoy peace and everlasting life, I do recommend to them our Lord and savior Jesus Christ, the Co-Ruler of the universe, now manipulating the controls of the whole universe, at this time when He is seated on the right hand of Power – Heb 1:3. Christ is the Righthand-man of God, the Father. Do you believe in Him? Beloved, beware of the end-time blasphemers who have appeared to turn the clock of progress backwards, and therefore blaspheme that Christ is no God.
Let’s pray: Our Father God, please offer Thy dear children Thy grace to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, that all of us shall come to the knowledge of Thy only begotten Son. I ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
