BIBLE STUDY Part One

TO BEGIN GET OUT YOUR BIBLE AND READ John 1:1-2
Who the God/Man is!
We have been taught about the spiritual Trinity – God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, but what we have NOT been taught is that God the Son has TWO ETERNAL natures – one as God the Son and the other as the Son of Man – Jesus Christ! There are numerous appearances of the Son of Man {called Christophanies} in the Old Testament. There is even Scripture sharing about the Lamb who was slain for the sin of the angels at the foundation of the world but no one shares about this:
Daniel 3:23-25 And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, fell down bound into the burning fiery furnace. 24 Then Nebuchadnezzar the king [saw and] was astounded, and he jumped up and said to his counselors, Did we not cast three men bound into the midst of the fire? They answered, True, O king. 25 He answered, Behold, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they are not hurt! And the form of the fourth is like a son of the gods! [Phil 2:5-8.] AMP
Revelation 13:8 All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. NKJV
We MUST remember that Christ is unchanging.
Study the following different translations of John 1:1-2 to see Who is the Eternal Word i.e. Jesus Christ. The New King James version starts John 1:1-2 with a title for Jesus: John 1:1-2 The Eternal Word (Gen 1:1-2:3) {Who is the Word – John 1:14 below?} 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning {in the era BEFORE time} with God. NKJV John 1:14 And the Word (Christ) became flesh {to me a better translation would be Christ “was born as”} (human, incarnate) and tabernacled (fixed His tent of flesh, lived awhile) among us; and we [actually] saw His glory (His honor, His majesty), such glory as an only begotten son receives from his father, full of grace (favor, loving-kindness) and truth. [Isa 40:5.] {I believe Christ appeared in human form numerous times in the Old Testament which are known as Christophanies.} AMP
The AMP translation even helps John 1:1-2 to have more clarity: John 1:1-2 IN THE beginning [{in the era} before all time] was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God {the Father and God the Holy Spirit}, and the Word was God {the Son/Son of Man} Himself. [Isa 9:6.] 2 He {God the Son/Son of Man} was present originally with God {the Father and God the Holy Spirit making up the Trinity. Please note the presence of Jesus Christ/ Son of Man with God the Son and the Trinity in the beginning era/before all time.}. AMP
1 John 1:1-4 [WE ARE writing] about the Word of Life {see John 1:4} [in] Him Who existed from {before} the beginning {Genesis 1:1}, Whom we have heard, Whom we have seen with our [own] eyes, Whom we have gazed upon [for ourselves] and have touched with our [own] hands. 2 And the Life [an aspect of His being] was revealed (made manifest, demonstrated), and we saw [as eyewitnesses] and are testifying to and declare to you the Life {John 14:6}, the eternal Life [in Him] Who already existed with the Father {and the Holy Spirit} and Who [actually] was made visible (was revealed) to us [His followers]. 3 What we have seen and [ourselves] heard, we are also telling you, so that you too may realize and enjoy fellowship as partners and partakers with us. And [this] fellowship that we have [which is a distinguishing mark of Christians] is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ (the Messiah). 4 And we are now writing these things to you so that our joy [in seeing you included] may be full [and your joy may be complete]. AMP
This helps us to better understand the eternality of Christ: Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ (the Messiah) is [always] the sameyesterdaytoday, [yes] and forever (to the ages). AMP To me, this makes Genesis 1:27 easier to understand as we have God the Son/the Son of Man creating man in His {own spiritual} image AND {own physical} likeness. Think about this! This is where created man obtains his TWO natures of being spiritual AND physical: Genesis 1:27 So God {the Son} created man in His own image, in the {spiritual} image and {physical} likeness of God {the Son} He {spiritually and physically} created him; male and female He created them. [Col 3:9, 10; James 3:8, 9.] AMP
