The Beginning of Jesus

By   •   September 28   •   Topics:

Earth illuminated

Jesus did not begin in Bethlehem. The Bible says, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” Jesus said that He existed before the foundation of the world. He was there when the moon and stars were flung out into space from the Father’s flaming fingertips. He was there when God created this planet. He has always existed. He is “from everlasting to everlasting.”

Prayer for the day

You, Lord Jesus, who have always existed, came down from heaven in love and saved me from the depths of my sin. In humble adoration I praise You, my Savior and Lord.

    Scripture says Jesus was the first of all Creation, does this not leave a thought that there may have been a time before Creation when Jesus did not exsist. And at some point in time, that technically does not exsist Jesus was Created before all Creation. And that Creation was Created by him and through him. Read Isiah ch: 11, Proverbs ch; 8, to begain with.

  2. Wendy Davis says:

    I have asked God to come into my heart and begged him to make him #1 and change my heart. I have no feelings that I am saved. I want peace and I am terrified of the end times because I want to make sure before I die, that he loves me. I just don’t understand how people can have such close relationships with him and I can’t. please help

    Thank you for these daily verses and bring Jesus Christ back into my life. I have strayed from the church and it feels so blessed to be saved and walk with God again.

    Could I please receive your daily devotional??? I would so appreciate it. I have no money so I am sorry I cannot give at this time. I sang in your first revival meeting in Mpls. in the choir. Also went forward in that meeting and accepted Christ as my Savior. Thank you so much.

    It seems to me that there absolutely has to be a Trinity, otherwise when my beloved Jesus died on the tree he had made in the beginning God and the Holy Spirit would have perished with him and Satan would have won.

    1. Danna Charles says:

      Amen! Wow I never think of it that way. That’s a great point. God is a mysterious God.
