In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not… And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. – John 1 KJV.
In the transitive property of equality which is typically taught at the 6th grade level and higher we learn, if a=b and b=c, then a=c. Let’s take this simplicity and now apply it to John Chapter 1.
As most of us are aware of this verse, “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” It states who the Messiah is, here in Isaiah chapter 9. Let’s go even further. As most of us are also aware of this in Isaiah 7:14, “Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.” Let’s now look at what the word Immanuel means in the original Hebrew language from the KJV Bible and the Strong’s Concordance.
Here again we see that Immanuel literally translates to, “with us is the Almighty God.” But that’s not all, today we are slashing prices, all that we have we are giving away! The Door is open, come in and freely receive. All that is offered here is a gift… The name Jesus which means Jehoshua in the original Hebrew, literally translates to the Self-Existent Eternal Jehovah that saves.
Yet, despite the overwhelming evidence, simplicity, and absolute perfection, many still refuse to believe one of the very first principals of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Messiah was the Lord God made flesh. “The WORD was made flesh and dwelt among us.” In John 8:12 it says, “Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” How are we to have the light of life in us? By filling ourselves with the Word of God. “It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.” – John 6:63. By reading a verse here, or a verse there, we are never able to obtain the fulness of the Good News. By taking one verse by itself without comparison and without reading and understanding the context, we will never know the Truth which sets us free. Life comes by every Word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. – Matthew 4:4. May The Everlasting Father, the Mighty God, the Prince of Peace, shine upon you and within you.
