At this point my head was getting more and more dizzy…I kept shaking my head and thought I was going to be mad-for real.
How could it be that the Word was God and was still God? So where did God come from?? Did he just appear from space? If you actually deeply think about…think right now..HOW you exist, the fact that YOU exist…it’s mind boggling… That’s why I prefer to stick to this first chapter of John 1. Let’s carry on…
John 1:4-9: 4In him(the WORD) was life; and the life was the light of men.5the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
6There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.7The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.8He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.9That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.”
You remember how people thought that John the baptist was the Messiah? well…he wasn’t. He was the one to prepare the way for the TRUE LIGTHT of men. He would baptize with FIRE(The Holy Spirit) unlike John who baptized with water only.
This is where it gets even more interesting!
10He was in the world(who?-the LIGHT-THE WORD), and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. The reason for this was due to the broken relationship between God and man.
11He came unto his own(Jews), and his own received him not.
12But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name. Legebayee! Did you see that? As many as received (or will receive) this LIGHT this WORD to them will He give the power to become the SONS OF GOD! Wuu! Let me not divert from the topic but…I bet you are already sizzling like I am!
13Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
14And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten(born) of the Father,) full of grace and truth. Ush! Now this was the very direction of my teaching today. This WORD which is/was THE LIGHT which was there during creation….became flesh! If I were you I would start pacing the room right now!
This WORD which was the CREATOR which was WITH GOD which WAS God BECAME FLESH! How? by being born through a woman(Mary) Look at the verse 13 what it says. anyone who is born of the will of flesh(sex) is flesh right? that’s how human beings come to be! but now this is different… The WORD became flesh yes(wore the body) but now this WORD wasn’t born via the will of flesh(sex) but of GOD!
This WORD/JESUS/GOD was born of the SPIRIT! since the birth was due to the power of the Holy Spirit coming over Mary. Ush! Meaning this was NO ORDINARY man! kayaa! This man had Divinity IN HIM! God dwelt in Him! and now this very DIVINITY dwells in each BORN AGAIN Christian! Ush!( Again….let me not divert…that’s a teaching for another day)
I hope now…that after the head spinning questions you had at the beginning..that now..now you understand how the world was made..that you have understood that Jesus is God, and No, God has NO WIFE His son was born via the power of His Holy Spirit…u-la-la isn’t the Word sweet?
