The Real Jesus: The Word Of The LORD God

"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 ... He was in the world, and the world was made by Him ... And the light shineth in darkness ... I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour ... And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us"

To many, the "Word of God" is regarded simply as the writings of the Holy Scriptures. But "Word of God" means much more. The Holy Scriptures are not only a documentation of the Word of God - they are a revelation that the "Word of God," Who became the "the LORD God" of Creation, was born as the Messiah, Jesus of Nazareth.

Let There Be Light

"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. 1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 1:5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

1:6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 1:7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. 1:8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. 1:9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

1:10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 1:11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 1:13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

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.

1:15 John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me. 1:16 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace. 1:17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. 1:18 No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him." (John 1:1-18 KJV)

The Messiah had memories of Who He was - and Who He would be restored to:

"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 17:5 KJV)

"8:58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am." (John 8:58 KJV)

"10:18 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven." (Luke 10:18 KJV)

Throughout history, the people of the LORD knew Who the LORD was, is, and always will be: "that Rock was Christ."

"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." (1 Corinthians 10:1-9 KJV)

The Holy Scriptures, "Old" Testament and New Testament, are filled with the same statements that the LORD God was born as the Saviour Jesus Christ. Some dismiss the "that Rock was Christ" statements of 1 Corinthians quoted above as "New Testament interpretation," but the very same was stated much earlier, in the Hebrew Scriptures. Exactly the same throughout all time.

"106:21 They forgat God their saviour, which had done great things in Egypt" (Psalm 106:21 KJV)

"43:3 For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee" (Isaiah 43:3 KJV)

Many other Scriptures, recorded throughout the Holy Bible, consistently proclaim the same truth about "that Rock was Christ" - the LORD God Who was sent by God to do the Work of Creation.

"22:3 The God of my rock; in him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour; thou savest me from violence." (2 Samuel 22:3 KJV) "13:4 Yet I am the LORD thy God from the land of Egypt, and thou shalt know no god but me: for there is no saviour beside me." (Hosea 13:4 KJV)

"1:47 And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour." (Luke 1:47 KJV)

"1:1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of God our Saviour, and Lord Jesus Christ, which is our hope;" (1 Timothy 1:1 KJV)

"1:3 But hath in due times manifested his word through preaching, which is committed unto me according to the commandment of God our Saviour;" ((Titus 1:3 KJV)

"1:25 To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen." (Jude 1:25 KJV)

This Day In History, April 26

1514: Renaissance astronomer and mathematician Nicolaus Copernicus (in his native Polish, Mikolaj Kopernik) made his first observations of "Saturn" (a pagan name that scientists gave to the planet; see also Rescuing Charles Darwin From The Atheists and What Did Jesus Tell John About Creation?; also Einstein's Holy Spirit Formula).

Copernicus

1607: English pioneers of the London Company established a colony at what is today Cape Henry, Virginia. "Virginia" was named after Queen Elizabeth I, "the Virgin queen," who reigned from 1558 to 1603. Queen Elizabeth I was the daughter of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn.

Queen Elizabeth I

1654: Jews (see also Jews - Three Tribes and Three Meanings) were expelled from Brazil.

1721: A massive earthquake destroyed Tabriz, Persia (Persia became known as Iran in the 20th century).

1802: Napoleon Bonaparte signed a general amnesty to allow most of the members of the French Revolution to return to France.

1803: Thousands of meteor fragments fell over France. The event advanced the study of meteors in European science.

1807: Russia and Prussia signed the Convention at Bartenstein, forming an alliance to force France out of the German states.

1828: Russia declared war on Turkey (listen to our Sermon The Ottoman Empire) to support Greece's battle for independence.

1865: John Wilkes Booth, 27, the accused assassin of Abraham Lincoln, died in a shootout with Federal authorities 11 days after Lincoln died.

Lincoln Assassination

1933: The Gestapo (a German abbreviation of "The State Police" - ge-sta-po), the official secret police force of Nazi Germany, was established (see also The Terrorist Attack That Enabled Hitler To Become A Dictator and Is Iniquity Liberal Or Conservative?).

1937: German fighters sent by Adolf Hitler (see Presidential Quotes On War, Terrorism, Religion) to help fascist General Francisco Franco overthrow the communist Popular Front destroyed the undefended Basque town of Guernica, killing 1,000 and injuring 900.

1954: At the end of the Korean War, the Geneva Conference, an effort to restore peace in "French Indochina" (Vietnam) and Korea, began. The people of Vietnam and Korea were nevertheless each divided into North and South (see Why Was Korea Divided Into North And South?) by meddling foreigners who sought to "lead" other people in their own countries - while knowing or caring nothing about those people, their history, their culture, or their freedom to live their lives without being ruled by aggressive hypocrites.

Geneva Conference

Vietnam

Within 2 weeks, winds in the upper atmosphere had carried dust from the explosion completely around the world. At least 31 people died as a direct result of the accident.
