Today, the preexistence of Jesus Christ within the Godhead, and his work as the Creator and Maker of mankind are in view.  When referring to the living Word and Holy Spirit, it is correct to say, they are one GOD, not gods.  While within the exalted fullness and summation of all divine spirit containing character, consciousness, duration, imperative, nature, presence, purpose, utterance, and will, Jesus had person and “place” as living Word.  The Word—also called the Son of GOD—prepared the form that allows mankind to serve as an host to divine life essence (i.e., breath, spirit) introduced to a material form and resulting in a living soul.  The participation in Creation by Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, and GOD the Father came before the beginning of life within man and woman as well as before many other important features of heaven and earth.  Adam and Eve came from Creation by GOD, and all mankind that have come from the first pair as their offspring have done so by reproduction and sexual joining.  Jesus Christ did not come by reproduction and sexual joining.  As the Son of Man, Jesus was born after being “conceived” through operations of the Holy Spirit within a virgin, who had been specially prepared and consecrated for that divine purpose.  When Christ completed mortality upon the cross, was buried, resurrected and returned to heaven, he continued use of the image and similitude of man, however, divine aspects of his earlier form and process have been fully restored and resumed.  Included are duties as chief architect of the New Jerusalem, High Priest, Judge, King, and Lord of the Sabbath.  One of the many fighters at “Yahoo!

Who came first, Jesus Christ or Adam and Eve?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?  This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.  For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost:  and these three are one.  (1st John 5:  5-7, King James Version,  KJV)

“Anonymous”, for mature Christian believers, a divine “person” who existed within the fullness of divinity that we call “The Godhead” has been the Creator and Maker of the heaven and earth as spheres of life, and the origin for all created beings and living creatures.  The name usually given to distinguish and set apart this Deity from the other living aspects that display holiness, eternal purpose, and sovereign power is “the Word.”  Spoken of using the concepts of order described by family relationships, the Word appears as the Son of GOD, where GOD, who is entirely spirit in character, nature, and substance, is Father.  While spirit in form, the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are inseparable, existing as a single living entity.  This is depicted in the way the “fingers” and the “hand” are the same, yet, are totally different and must work together as one unit.  Because the Son must appear as divinity using the form and processes of mankind (e.g., birth, aging, death, obedience, mortality, sanctification, worship), many reserve the name “Jesus Christ” for the Son as he appeared upon the earth in the flesh as the child of a virgin mother, and thereby an offspring and output of Adam and Eve.  Consider how some of this is stated using language from the Bible:

(1.)  John 1:  1-5, King James Version (KJV):  1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  2 The same was in the beginning with God.  3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.  4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.  5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

(2.)  Colossians 1:  12-19, KJV:  12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:  13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:  14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:  15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:  16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers:  all things were created by him, and for him:  17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.  18 And he is the head of the body, the church:  who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.  19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;

(3.)  Galatians 4:  3-7, KJV:  3 Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world:  4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,  5 To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.  6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.  7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.

(4.)  Acts 17:  29, KJV:  29 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device.

There is far more to be said, carefully examined, and spiritually understood.  (For example, (5.)  Romans 1:  18-22, KJV:  18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;  19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.  20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:  21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.  22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
