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.
"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.
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)
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.
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)
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)
Fact Finder: What did the Word of God, the LORD God, do on each of the first seven days of His Creation?
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).
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.
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.

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.
1942: An explosion in a coal mine killed 1,549 in Manchuria.

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.
1964: Tanganyika and Zanzibar merged to form Tanzania.
1971: 15 inches of rain fell in 24 hours in the Bahia district of Brazil.

A fire caused by an explosion in one of the plant's 4 reactors released a cloud of radioactivity that was blown over Europe by shifting winds. 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.
1989: The deadliest tornado on record struck Bangladesh. Over 1,300 people were killed, over 12,000 were injured and 80,000 were left homeless.
