Dazzling Breath of Existence

CROSS ON WATER

What existed before time?

Before life?
Before dirt?
Before chocolate?
Before light and dark?

 

IS THERE such a thing as pre-existence? If yes, then what existed?

4 simple letters:

W O R D

 

DIVINELY EXPRESSED, by John, disciple of Jesus: “In the beginning was the Word.” (John 1) John’s time spent with the Messiah transformed his spiritual understanding of the facts in the Old Testament he had already memorized :

“In the beginning, God created…” Genesis 1  

 

SUBTLE MAGNIFICENCE. Ponder how each verse of creation matter-of-factly begins with, “God said…”

  • God said, “Let there be light, v.3
  • God said, “Let there be a space between the waters… v.6
  • God said, “Let the waters beneath the sky flow together… so dry ground may appear v.9
  • God said, “Let lights appear in the sky… v.14
  • God said, “Let the waters swarm with fish and other life… v.20
  • God said, “Let the earth produce every sort of animal… v.24
  • God said, “Let us make human beings in our image… v.26

 

Every word spoken in the above proclamations required BREATH.

 

If something BREATHS, that Something is LIVING

 

Jesus WAS the Word. Still IS the word. Always WILL BE the Word. The Living Word from the beginning will also have the final word in the end (Matt 5:18).

 

 Add to that Word, LIGHT 

In Him was Life, and the Life was the Light of men. John 1:4

 

Awesome!

neon words

 

TO MAKE IT TANGIBLE, PICTURE: living neon words not created by human hands. No batteries necessary. Not run on electricity. No human hands can control a light that shines eternally and with inherent life:

  • inextinguishable
  • unfading
  • undying
  • undefeatable
  • imperceptible to darkness
  • and darkness is unreceptive to it

 

THE BREATHING Word acts as a Light (Psalm 119):

  • a luminous understanding
  • wisdom
  • orderly
  • divinely logical and rational
  • Word & Light are living and eternal

 

Take that living Light away

Take that living Word away

…and you experience death

The Deep Thoughts of the Embattled Spirit

 

 

IN THE BEGINNING THE WORD ALREADY EXISTED.
The Word (Jesus) was with God,
and the Word (Jesus) was God.
He (Jesus) existed in the beginning with God.
God created everything through him (Jesus),
and nothing was created except through him (Jesus).
The Word (Jesus) gave life to everything that was created,
and his (Jesus) life brought light to everyone.
The light shines in the darkness,
and the darkness can never extinguish it (Jesus, Light & Word).

(John 1 nlt)
