The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him. He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him. But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God. John1:9-13
Too many think that Jesus came into existence when He was born in the manger. The problem with this view is that if you believe Jesus is God then you face a dilemma. God is eternal with no beginning or end. If Jesus had a beginning in a stable in Bethlehem then He cannot be God. John gets us out of this dilemma. He tells us that Jesus was there at the beginning of the world and in fact He made the world.
The Son was with the Father from the beginning. The Triune God was not something invented by a bunch of Jews and Greeks in the first century but had been alluded to in the Old Testament. In fact we see the plural nature of God in the first book of the Bible when God says ““Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.” And yes, the plural was in the Hebrew. So the idea of the plural nature of God is as old as the Bible. God the Father, Jesus the Son and the Holy Spirit have existed since before time and space began, co-eternal, one God with three distinct personalities. We see this from Genesis to Revelations.
Jesus was not created through some physical union of God with Mary but entered into our physical realm, became flesh, through the miraculous incarnation when the Holy Spirit caused Mary, a virgin, to conceive and give birth to Jesus. Jesus fully man and totally and completely God.
God the Son came down to earth and took on flesh in order to save all who believed in Him, bringing us back into God’s family. Because of the incarnation we are able to be reconciled to God and become Hid children.
Have a blessed day,
