In The Beginning. . .

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1:1

The beginning of everything is outlined in Genesis. From the creation of the heavens and the earth to man’s beginning. How the animals and the plants and trees came into existence. God spoke, and it happened.

And in comparison, in John 1:1, John starts his account of Jesus at the beginning. Back to where it all began.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  

Jesus was there in the beginning with God because He is God. This is the mystery of the trinity. There is One God, who is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

In the New Testament, God’s great mysteries are revealed: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. John 1-4.

God’s mysteries that were concealed for thousands of years were spoken clearly in John. God created the universe through and for Jesus. Everything in the Old Testament points to Jesus, the one who would come and who would save the fallen world from their sins. All things were to be fulfilled through Him. Jesus was in the beginning. He will be there in the end. And He has made a way for us to be with Him in heaven one day.

John 14:1-3

Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

What an amazing promise. What an amazing God.  

All the best…
