A Biography Of Jesus Christ: The LORD God Of Creation

"And now, O Father, glorify Thou Me with Thine own Self with the glory which I had with Thee before the world was"

As we will cover in this 12 part series, A Biography Of Jesus Christ, Jesus of Nazareth was and is the Son of God and a son of man (the Hebrew word, pronounced aw-dawn, from which the name "Adam" originated, actually means man as a species, male and female i.e. "1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them" Genesis 1:27 KJV; see also Adam and Adamah).

As such, Jesus Christ is unique in that He is the only one Who has existed at the levels of God and of man (see also Who Sits At The Right Hand Of God?).

Heaven

On the night before He was Crucified (see How Did The Messiah Observe His Last Passover? and The Day That The Messiah Was Crucified), the Messiah prayed to the Father (see also How To Pray: 12 Biblical Principles Of Personal Prayer). It's a lengthy, detailed prayer (John 17:1-26) that begins with a statement of His identity and His eternal past: "And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was."

"17:1 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said,

Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: 17:2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.

17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. 17:4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.

17:5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was." (John 17:1-5 KJV)

The Messiah is also the Word of God - the means by which He accomplished what He stated in the verses quoted above ("that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent"), but also by which He did the actual "Let there be light" work of Creation that the Father sent Him to do: "All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made." That includes His true seventh-day Sabbath (see Why Observe The True Sabbath?).

"1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God. 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made ... 1:14 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 1:1-3,14 KJV)

"2:1 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. 2:2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. 2:3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made." (Genesis 2:1-3 KJV)

Jesus Christ, before He was born as a man ("the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father") was the LORD God of all recorded history. He was the LORD God of the Exodus - and of the Ten Commandments.

"10:1 Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; 10:2 And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; 10:3 And did all eat the same spiritual meat; 10:4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.

10:5 But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness. 10:6 Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted. 10:7 Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play. 10:8 Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand.

10:9 Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents.

10:10 Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.

10:11 Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.

10:12 Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall." (1 Corinthians 10:1-12 KJV)
