Jesus Christ was in Existence before His Manger Birth
(Passage: John 1)
Jesus Christ the Son of God has been in existence before Mary physically gave birth to him at the manger. He was in existence before the creation of the earth. In fact, Christ witnessed inception of the earth, and he also played a part in its creation.
The scripture attested,
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and nothing was made without him. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it” (John 1:1-5).
Lesson on the Birth of Jesus Christ and Earth Creation
The life of Jesus Christ did not begin at the manger when Mary gave birth to him. He was the breath of God that made earth creation happened.
It is virtually impossible to separate Jesus Christ from God. He is the breath of God – the voice of God. Jesus was God’s utterance used for the creation of the earth – the Word of God.
Earthly people may consider Jesus Christ as the Son of God, but he is indeed God in human flesh. It is impossible to separate him from God.
Jesus Christ cannot be separated from God, just as a person’s voice cannot be separated from him. In short, Jesus is God! All things were made through him, and nothing else was made without him! Hence, humanity is to declare the Lordship of Jesus Christ and accept him as their Savior.
The condition of receiving the salvation of Jesus Christ is to confess him as the Son of God (God in human flesh). The Bible declares,
“If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved” Romans 10:9-10.
Pray to Accept the Lordship of Jesus Christ
Dear Jesus Christ, I understand that you have been in existence before the creation of the earth. You are Christ the Son of God! You are God in human flesh! I declare you as my personal Lord and Savior. I yield my complete life to you, and I will faithfully serve you throughout the days of my life. Please write my name in the book of life, and keep me heavenly worthy. For in the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.
