WHAT DOES JOHN 1:1-3 TRULY MEAN?

SPELLING EDITED


WHAT DOES JOHN 1:1-3 TRULY MEAN?


What did the Apostle John INTEND his words to mean when John said in John 1:1, the word was WITH God?

I want you to notice that John used the Greek word “PROS” that is TRANSLATED as “WITH” God in the King James Version as well as in many other translations of the Bible. But the word “WITH” is NOT the ONLY meaning of the Greek word “PROS”. In other words, there are TWO and only two ways to interpret the true meaning of the Greek word “logos” that is translated as “Word” in the King James Version of the Bible and all other modern translations. 


INTERPRETATION #1.


The Word either means a SEPARATE divine person was WITH God at his side in eternity past. And then the Word himself created everything that exists.


INTERPRETATION #2.


Or the word means the SPOKEN word that came forth out from the mouth of God as God’s word of PROPHECY which came to pass just as God SAID it would.


We will cover the TRUE meaning of this Greek word “PROS” in a moment that is translated as the English word “WITH” in most translations. But first I what you to do a word search on the English word “WITH” in the gospel of John so that we can better see John’s INTENDED meaning of the Greek word “PROS”. Use the word search feature that gives you the Strong’s numbers alongside the English words. The Strong’s number for the Greek word “PROS” is 4314.

Scroll down through every single verse of Scripture in entire gospel of John having the English word “WITH in those verses. Look specifically for Strong’s number 4314. In the gospel of John, you will ONLY find the Greek word “PROS that is TRANSLATED as “WITH” in John 1:1,2. Now, I want you to follow all the way through this entire study in God’s word the color-coded highlighting. 

The color orange will always refer to Almighty God Yahweh, the FATHER.

The color green will refer to either a separate divine person being WITH the CREATOR or the creator being ALONE when he created all things because that is the question we must answer to truly understand the TRUE meaning of John 1:1-3.

The color yellow is just for EMPHASIS.

And the color light blue will always refer to the WORD as hidden PROPHECY in the Old Testament which was and is still being FULFILLED.

And the reason that I am highlighting fulfilled prophecy is so that we can see IF the Word in John 1:1 is a SEPARATE divine person named the Word who was WITH God at his side in eternity past and the Word is the CREATOR? Or IF the word should have never been capitalized because the word is the SPOKEN word of PROPHECY that was WITHIN God. And then Almighty God Yahweh SPOKE hs word OUT FROM his own MOUTH to create ALL that he has SPOKEN. With that being said, lets us now read John 1:1,2, the ONLY two verses in the entire Gospel of John where the Greek word “PROS” is TRANSLATED as “WITH”.


John 1:1,2.


“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was WITH (PROS) God, and the Word was God. 

2.  The same was in the beginning WITH (PROS) God.” 


Please notice that I did NOT yet highlight the second word God is verse 1 because that is what we are trying to search out directly from the Holy Bible to see IF the second word God was INTENDED to be referring to the one true and only Almighty God and another separated divine person of God was WITH God? Or IF the second word for God was INTENDED to be referring to a PROPHECY of the spoke word BECOMING a God in the future.

Now, you can continue to believe whatever you desire to believe but I have chosen to believe only what God has shown to me directly from his word of truth, the Holy Bible. And if you TRULY want to know the INTENDED meaning of the words of the Apostle John then you will read this entire study all the way to the end no matter how much what I have come to believe may offend your religious spirit. For you see, it is only a person with a HAUGHTY heart who answers a matter BEFORE he or she hears the WHOLE matter.


Proverbs 18:12,13.


“Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, and before honor is humility

13.  He that answers a matter BEFORE he HEARS it, it is folly and SHAME unto him.”


So then, to me, the INTENDED meaning of the Apostle John using the Greek word “PROS” in the gospel of John was NOT that the word was WITH God. As in, the word was a separate person named the Word who was alongside of God was NOT the INTENDED meaning of the Apostle John’s words. For you see, whenever the Apostle John INTENDED to mean that another person was WITH someone else, then he used the following four Greek words. John used the Greek word “PARA”, the Greek word “AUTOS”, the Greek word META, and the Greek word “SUNERCHOMAI or SYNERCHOMAI” when referring to a person being with another person in the same place.

Here are ALL the verses in the gospel of John that have the English word “WITH” in them where the word “with” means in the presence and company with another person. And, as you will notice, not one single time does John use the Greek word “PROS” when he INTENDS to mean that a person was WITH another person.

John 1:39 they abode WITH (Para) him

John 3:2 except God be WITH (Meta) him

John 3:22 he tarried WITH (Meta) them

John 3:26 he that was WITH (Meta) you

John 4:27 he talked WITH (Meta) the woman

John 4:40 he would tarry WITH (Para) them

John 6:3 he sat WITH (Meta) his disciples

John 6:22 Jesus went not WITH his disciples (Suneiserchomai Strong’s number 4897 means to accompany with)

John 6:66 many of his disciples went back and walked no more WITH (Meta) him

John 7:33 yet a little while I am WITH (Meta) you

John 8:29 he that sent me is WITH (Meta) me

John 9:37 he that talks WITH (Meta) you

John 9:40 the Pharisees which were WITH (Meta) him

John 11:16 let us go that we may die WITH (Meta) him

John 11:41 The Jews then which were WITH (Meta) her

John 11:43 the Jews also weeping which came WITH (Sunerchomai 4905)

John 11:54 Jesus continued WITH (Meta) his disciples

John 12:2 Lazarus was one of them that sat at the table WITH (Sunanakeimai 4573) him

John 12:8 the poor you always have WITH (Meta) you

John 12:17 the people that were WITH (Meta) him

John 13:18 he that eats bread WITH (Meta) me

John 13:33 yet a little while and I am WITH (Meta) you

John 14:9 Have I been so long WITH (Meta) you

John 14:16 he shall give you another Comforter that he may abide WITH (Meta) you

John 14:17 he dwells WITH (Para) you

John 14:23 and make our abode WITH (Para) him

John 14:25 These things have I spoken unto you being yet PRESENT WITH (Para) you

John 15:27 you have been WITH (Meta) me from the beginning

John 16:4. I was WITH (Meta) you

John 16:32 I am not ALONE because the Father is WITH (Meta) me

John 17:5. I had WITH (Para) you

John 17:12. I was WITH (Meta) them

John 18:1 he went WITH (Sun) his disciples

John 18:2 Jesus often resorted (Or met) there WITH (Meta) his disciples

John 18:18 Judas also which betrayed him stood WITH (Meta) him

John 18:26 Did I not see you in the garden WITH (Meta) him

John  19:18 Where they crucified him and two others WITH (Meta) him

John 19:33 and of the other which were crucified WITH (Meta) him

John 20:24 But Thomas. One of the twelve, called Didymus, was not WITH (Meta) them

John 20:26 and Thomas WITH (Meta) them

John 21:3 we also go WITH (Sun) you


So then, to me, John never INTEND his words in John 1:1,2 to mean that the word is another separate person who was with God at his side in eternity past.

The TRUE INTENDED meaning of the Greek word “PROS” by the Apostle Paul in John 1:1,2 is that the word was TOWARD God. As in, the word was WITHIN God having a DIRECTION or GOAL that the spoken word would BECOME. And that direction or goal was that his human Son, Jesus, would become HIGHLY EXALTED to BECOME the God of the whole earth to rule and reign FOR Yahweh, the Father for 1000 years. 

To say this another way, the SPOKEN word that came forth out from the mouth of God as God’s word of prophecy came to pass just as God said it would. God SPOKE the END from the BEGINNING. In “A” beginning was the word, and the words was WITHIN the God, and the word, as in the spoken word of God as God’s word of prophecy was “A” God. And every Christians agrees that Jesus is God and that he will rule and reign for 1000 years in the world to come on his Father’s throne.

 So all I am asking my fellow dear brothers and sisters in our Lord Jesus Christ is to CONSIDER the POSSIBILITY that INTERPRETATION #2 is just as possible as interpretation #1. All I am asking you to do is to take a CLOSER look at ALL the verses of prophecy and ask yourself WHO spoke all those words of prophecy in the Old Testament? Did Almighty God the Father speak forth those words of prophecy out from his mouth? Or did a separate dive person named the Word speak those words of prophecy out of his mouth? WHO did the SPEAKING of the “LOGOS”?

All Christians agree that all things are created BY Almighty God. And all Christians agree that God SPEAKS forth the things that he desires to create or to bring forth into existence. So now the question becomes, “WHO SPOKE the END from the beginning?”


Genesis 1:3. 

 

And God SAID, Let there be light: and there was light.”


Now read Hebrews 11:3.  


“Through faith, we understand that the worlds were framed by the word OF God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.”


Psa 148:5.  


“Let them praise the NAME OF the LORD (Or let them praise the name of Yahweh): for HE commanded, and they were created.” 


Psalm 33:6.  


BY the word OF the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them BY the BREATH OF HIS MOUTH.” 



Isaiah 46:9,10.


“Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; (Meaning the BEFORE God created anything there was nothing else that existed) I am God, and there is none like me, (Meaning that there is no other CREATOR) 

10.  Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:”


Isaiah 55:11.  


So shall MY word be that goes forth out of MY mouth: IT shall not return unto me void, but IT shall accomplish that which I please, and IT shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent IT.


Isaiah 40:28.  


Have you not known? Have you not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, (YAHWEH) the CREATOR of the ends of the earth, faints not, neither is weary? There is no searching of his understanding.”


Isaiah 42:5.  


“Thus says God the LORD, (YAHWEH) HE that CREATED the heavens, and stretched them out; HE that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; HE that gives breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein:”



2 Kings 19:15.  


“And Hezekiah prayed before the LORD, and said, O LORD God of Israel, which dwells between the cherubims, YOU are the God, even you ALONE, of all the kingdoms of the earth; you have made heaven and earth.”


Nehemiah 9:6.  


You, even you, are LORD ALONE; you have made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth, and all things that are therein, the seas, and all that is therein, and you preserve them all; and the host of heaven worships you.”


Psalm 115:15.  


“You are blessed of the LORD which made heaven and earth.”


Psalm 121:2.  


“My help comes from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.


Psalm 124:8.  


Our help is in the NAME OF the LORD, who made heaven and earth.”


Psalm 134:3.  


The LORD that made heaven and earth bless you out of Zion”

.

Psalm 146:6.  


Happy is he that has the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God: 

6. Which made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that therein is: which keeps truth for ever:”


Isaiah 37:16.  


O LORD of hosts, God of Israel, that dwell between the cherubims, you are the God, even you ALONE, of all the kingdoms of the earth: YOU have made heaven and earth.”


Isaiah 44:24.


Thus says the LORD, your redeemer, and he that formed you from the womb, I am the LORD that makes all things; that stretches forth the heavens ALONE; that spreads abroad the earth BY MYSELF;”


Please read Isaiah 45:8 where Yahweh PROPHESIED. 


“Drop down, you heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down RIGHTEOUSNESS: (Now COMPARE this with Isaiah 55:7-11 where the SPOKEN word out form God’s MOUTH will come down from heaven LIKE RAIN that waters the earth) let the earth open, and let them bring forth SALVATION, and let RIGHTEOUSNESS spring up together; I the LORD have created it.


Speaking of Yahweh ALONE and by himself creating RIGHTEOUSNESS and his SALVATION by SPEAKING it into existence upon the earth.


Isaiah 45:12. 


I have made the earth, and (I, Yahweh) created man upon it: I, even MY hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded.”


Isaiah 45:18.  


For thus says the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; HE has established it, HE created it not in vain, HE formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else.”



Please read Mark 13:19, Matthew 19:4, and Mark 10:6 where Jesus HIMSELF says that God is the CREATOR of all creation.


Mark 13:19.  


For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be.”


Matthew 19:4.  


“And he (Jesus, the SON OF God) answered and said unto them, Have you not read, that HE which made them at the beginning made them male and female,”


Mark 10:6.  


But from the beginning of the creation, God made them male and female.”



Please read Acts 4:23-30 where the disciples of Jesus are praying TO Almighty God the Father.


Acts 4:23-30. 


 “And being let go, they went to their own company and reported all that the chief priests and elders had said unto them. 

24.  And when they heard that, they lifted up their voice to God with one accord, and said, Lord, YOU are God, which hast made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that in them is

25.  WHO by the mouth of thy servant David have said, (Or YOU the CREATOR have PROPHECIED the end from the beginning through your prophets SAYING) Why did the heathen rage, and the people imagine vain things? 

26.  The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord, and against HIS Christ

27.  For OF a truth against YOUR (Strong’s number 4675) holy child Jesus, whom YOU have anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together, 

28.  For to do whatsoever thy hand and your counsel determined before to be done. 

29.  And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto your servants, that with all boldness they may speak YOUR word, 

30.  By stretching forth YOUR hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the NAME of YOUR (Strong’s number 4675) holy child Jesus.”


I placed the Strong’s number after the word your and before the words holy child in verses 27 and 30 to show that the preposition OF does NOT have to be placed before the word your in verse 30. It was added by the translators. Lets us read verse 30 WITHOUT the preposition “OF”. The highlighted preposition OF in verse 27 shows that there is a specific Greek word that is used for the proposition of. My point right now is for you to see that SOME of the prophecies in the Old Testament that have the name of the LORD with all caps are hidden prophecies of the NAME being the yet FUTURE Son of God. Please read the study WHAT DOES TAKING THE LORD'S NAME IN VAIN TRULY MEAN? But for now, I want you to read Acts 4:30 WITHOUT the preposition OF in that verse. Instead, I will place a comma to show that the hidden prophecy of the name of the LORD became God's holy human child Jesus.


The way that I believe Acts 4:30 should read.


“By stretching forth YOUR hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the NAME, YOUR holy child Jesus.”


Can you not see that the NAME of Yahweh IS Jesus who was PROPHESIED to be MADE God’s CHRIST who would PROSPER to accomplish the WILL of Yahweh. And as his REWARD his God and Father would HIGHLY EXALT his to MAKE him LORD of the SABBATH just as Almighty God the CREATOR PROPHESIED declaring the end from the beginning?

Let us read a few more verse which clearly teaches us that Almighty God Yahweh the Father is the CREATOR and then we will take a CLOSE look at John 1:3 to learn its TRUE SOUND Biblical meaning.


Acts 14:15.  


“And saying, Sirs, why do you these things? (They were calling them gods) We also are men of like passions with you, and preach unto you that you should turn from these vanities unto the living God, which made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all things that are therein:”


Remember that Jesus is the SON OF the LIVING God.


Acts 7:24.  


God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that HE is Lord of heaven AND earth, dwells not in temples made with hands;”


All of these Scriptures, both in the Old Testament and in the New Testament, clearly teach us that the ONE creator in ONE person, ALONE and BY HIMSELF, created the universe and all the living creatures that live in the universe. Even Jesus himself said the God made man and women in the beginning.


Well, some Christians may say, well what about the verses that say that Jesus is the creator?


My answer to this question in that there are TWO creations spoken of in the Bible. There was the original creation of the universe, the heavens and the earth and all the host in them that was created by Yahweh ALONE and by himself in eternity past as we just read in the Scriptures above. 

And then there is God’s new creation created IN Jesus Christ and FOR Jesus Christ, BECAUSE OF Jesus Christ and WITHOUT HIM not even ONE new creature of righteousness was CREATED IN Jesus Christ which has COME TO be CREATED IN Jesus Christ BY Almighty God himself.


Please read John 1:1-5,14 from a LITERAL translation.


“In beginning was the SAYING and the SAYING was TOWARD THE God and God was the SAYING.

2. THIS was in beginning TOWARD THE God.

3. ALL through SAME BECAME and apart from SAME became NOT YET ONE which HAS BECOME (Now to ME, I am seeing that this verse is speaking of THE ALL of every NEW CREATURE who has become created IN Jesus Christ as the fulfilling of the GOAL that was PROPHESIED to BECOME by Yahweh the Father. I personally do NOT see this verse speaking of the creation of the entire universe in eternity past. The beginning in John 1:1 in the RECREATING of the earth that became void and without form by the WAR between Lucifer and Almighty God. Please read the studies “THE WAR IN HEAVEN-REVELATION 12!”, “UNDERSTANDING WHY?”, and “WHO IS LUCIFER-IS LUCIFER SATAN?” For you see, once you understand that Satan and the fallen angels are on TRIAL and the saints who overcome are the JURY then you will understand WHY God created mankind in the first place)

4. In SAME life was and the life was the LIGHT of the humans. (The spoken and the written word of God is the LIGHT or the understanding of eternal life)

5. And the LIGHT in the darkness is appearing and the darkness it not down got (Or the darkness did not understand the gospel of Jesus Christ)...

...14. And the SAYING flesh became as booths (Or tabernacles or dwells in us or among us) and we gaze the esteem (Or the glory of him) esteem (Or the glory of him) as of only GENERATED beside Father full of grace and truth.”


And that was the GOAL in John 1:1 to GENERATE himself a SON to sit on his throne beside him.that was TOWARD the God when God RESTORED the earth. The reason that God restored the earth that became void is so that he could create man a little LOWER or INFERIOR to the angels only to EXALT those who OVERCOME Satan to be made God’s RIGHTEOUS NEW CREATION to rule and reign WITH his ONLY GENERATED Son who is beside the Father right NOW. In other words, Jesus is the only begotten ETERNAL Son of God right at this moment in time. But SOON God will GENERATE us who overcome through the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony shall ALSO become the ETERNAL sons and daughters of Almighty God to rule and reign WITH Jesus fro 1000 years in the world to come.

Again, my point is that the LITERAL translation and all the earlier translations do NOT capitalize the word “word” as “Word”. And they ALSO do NOT use the pronoun “he” to SWAY the reader to wrongly believe that the “LOGOS” is God the Son, the second person of a Godhead Trinity God who always existed without beginning in eternity past. 

So to me, I see that the earlier English translations and some LITERAL translation were trying to be HONEST in their translations to let us know that the SPOKEN “LOGOS” or the SPOKEN word or the SPOKEN SAYING of God became flesh. And that is was NOT God the Son, the second person of a Godhead Trinity God that became flesh.

The English word “THINGS” in John1:3 is NOT in the original Greek text. So then, to me, John 1:3 should read as follows.

The ALL through SAME BECAME. And apart from SAME became NOT YET ONE which HAS BECOME


And this is speaking of God’s NEW CREATION of new CREATURES who are created and who are yet still BEING CREATED IN Jesus Christ, the word of PROPHECY that Yahweh ALONE and BY HIMSELF made to become FLESH. And WITHOUT the ANOINTED Son of MAN Jesus becoming OBEDIENT to his God and Father there would be NO new creation created and BEING CREATED IN Jesus Christ.


Please read the study “GOD’S NEW CREATION CREATED IN JESUS CHRIST!”

But, for now, I want you to read some earlier translation that came BEFORE the King James translation so that you can see for yourself that earlier Christians before the King James translation understood that the word on John 1:1 was an IT. They understood that the “LOGOS” of God was his SPOKEN word that came forth OUT FROM God’s MOUTH as God’s word of PROPHECY.


Tyndale Bible 1535. From an online translation.


John 1:1-5,14.


In the beginnynge was the worde and the worde was with God: and the worde was God.  (Notice that the old English word “worde” or “word” is NOT capitalized as it is in the modern translations as “Word” from the time of King James Version to the newest translation of today.)

2. The SAME was in the beginnynge with God. (Speaking of the logos or the word was in the beginning with God not as a separate person of a Godhead Trinity. But rather IT was God’s THOUGHTS in the form of his word in his mind which God spoke forth out from his mouth)

3. All thinges were made by IT and with out IT was made nothinge that was made.

4. In IT was lyfe and the lyfe was ye lyght of men

5. and the lyght shyneth in the darcknes but the darcknes comprehended it not. ...

...14. And the worde was made flesshe and dwelt amonge vs and we sawe the glory of IT as the glory of the only begotten sonne of ye father which worde was full of grace and verite.



Geneva Bible 1560. From an online translation.


“In the beginning was that Word, and that Word was with God, and that Word was God. (This is actually the 1599 translation. The 1560 Geneva Bible translation does NOT capitalize the word “word” as being “Word” until the 1599 edition)

2. This SAME was in the beginning with God.

3. All things (Keep in mind that the English word “things” is NOT in the original text) were made by IT, and without IT was made nothing that was made.

4. In IT was life, and that life was the light of men. (Notice that all the pronouns referring back to the Greek word “logos” are the pronoun IT instead of the pronoun “he” in the King James Version and the modern translations.)

5. And that light shineth in the darkenesse, and the darkenesse comprehended IT not….

... 14. And that Word was made flesh, and dwelt among vs, (and we sawe the glorie THEREOF, as the glorie of the onely begotten Sonne of the Father) full of grace and trueth.”


Matthew Bible 1535. From an online translation.


John 1:1-5.14.


“In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God. (Again, please notice that these earlier translations BEFORE the King James translation did NOT capitalized the Greek word “logos” that is translated as the English word “word”)

2. The SAME was in the beginning with God.

3. All things were made by IT (Speaking of the “logos” the spoken word or saying of God. Keep in mind that the English word “things” is NOT in the original text), and without it was made nothing that was made.

4. In IT (Speaking of the “logos” the spoken word or saying of God) was life, and the life was the light of men.

5. And the light shines in the darkness, but the darkness comprehended IT (Speaking of the “logos” the spoken word or saying of God which God prophesied out from his mouth that was made flesh) not….

...14. And the word was made flesh and dwelt among us. And we saw the glory of IT,(Speaking of the “logos” the spoken word or saying of God that was made flesh and then HIGHLY EXALTED to become the eternal Son of God) as the glory of the only begotten (The GOAL that was TOWARD the God when God restored the earth and created the human race INFERIOR to the angles for a specific reason. So right not the highly exalted Son of MAN os the ONLY generated) Son of the Father, which word was full of grace and truth. “


I could not find all eight translations online to copy and paste but they all use the pronoun IT instead of the pronoun “he”. And they do NOT capitalize the word “word”. Not all Christians are aware that the “LOGOS” is an IT and not a HE. Even the King James Version uses the pronoun IT for the word of God in Isaiah 55:11.


“So shall MY word be that goes forth OUT OF MY MOUTH: IT shall not return unto me void, but IT (Speaking of the FULFILLMENT of the prophecy made flesh to become the Son of MAN anointed by God at age 29) shall accomplish that which I please, and IT (Speaking of the FULFILLMENT of the prophecy made flesh to become the Son of MAN anointed by God at age 29) shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent IT.”


Again, speaking of the FULFILLMENT of the prophecy made flesh to become the Son of MAN anointed by God at age 29 who became obedient to do all his God and Father’s WILL even to die on the cross for the GOAL that was TOWARD God is the beginning right before God RESTORED the earth to create man his HIS image.

Now let us read Isaiah 55:11 from the LITERAL translation and you will see that the  IT, the spoken word that CAME FORTH OUT FROM the MOUTH OF God, became a HIM in the first GENERATION or generating power of God to become the HUMAN Son of God FIRST.


Isaiah 55:11.


“So he (Or more precisely IT) is becoming word OF me (Speaking of the  >>Aleph Tav אֶ ת )which he (Or more precisely IT) is going forth  from MOUTH of ME not he (Or more precisely NOT IT) is returning to me empty but rather he (Or more precisely IT speaking of the FULFILLED word of PROPHECY) does >>Aleph Tav אֶ ת which I desire and he (Or more precisely IT speaking of the FULFILLED word of PROPHECY)  prospers which I sent him.”


Or more precisely Almighty God sent IT. The IT that became flesh. The IT speaking of the prophesied word that FIRST became a CHILD that was given the name Jesus. The FULFILLED IT being born of a VIRGIN who grew up to become the Son of MAN. The IT that became Son of MAN who was prophesied to be God’s ANOINTED with POWER to accomplish his God and Father’s will. The same Son of MAN whom God HIGHLY EXALTED to FULFILL the IT speaking of that which was PROPHESIED in God’s word spoken by the prophets that are written down for us to read in the Old Testament of the Holy Bible. 

And THEN, after the cross and the resurrection, Yahweh the Father gave the now glorified Son of MAN a NEW NAME that is higher than any other name. And I believe that the NEW NAME of Jesus is Yahweh. I believe that Yahweh gave his FIRST begotten eternal Son his very own name to rule and reign for a 1000 years in the NAME OF Yahweh. And that is why I myself believe that John 1:1 should be read and understood as a PROPHECY where the PROPHECY at the beginning of the RESTORATION of the earth was for there to become another God to REPLACE Lucifer as the God of the whole earth.

John 1:14 should be understood as the SAYING became FLESH. Jesus said that he came FORTH OUT FROM God in John 16:27,28. Please read the study “JOHN 16:28 JESUS CAME FORTH FROM GOD!”


But, for now, please read John 16:27,28.


“For the Father himself loves you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I CAME OUT FROM God.

28. I CAME FORTH FROM the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father.”


I myself believe that Jesus knew that the PROPHECIES of the Scriptures spoke of him COMING INTO EXISTENCE in the womb of his mother by the SPOKEN word of His God and Father to be BORN of the Virgin Mary.

Jesus understood that the word he spoke or taught was Almighty God’s word that came down from heaven as the BREAD of LIFE. That is why Jesus called himself the bread of life that came down from heaven. The word bread in the Bibles symbolizes TEACHING. It was the TEACHING of the word of eternal life that came down from heaven which God spoke to the ear of Jesus morning by morning as he was growing up.

I do NOT believe that the word of Yahweh was a separate divine Spirit being called God the Son, the second person of a Godhead Trinity. For you see, Yahweh PROPHESIED in his word saying,


I WILL BE a Father to him and he SHALL BE a Son to me


Jesus was GENERATED or BEGOTTEN by God in the womb of the Virgin Mary FIRST to become God’s human Son. For you see, the spoke word of PROPHECY was FIRST generated or MANIFESTED by the Holy Spirit to become the HUMAN Son of MAN that was conceived in the womb of the Virgin Mary by the POWER of God.

Then after the ANOINTED Son of MAN accomplished all the WILL of his God and Father, Almighty God THEN GENERATED, BEGOTTEN or MANIFESTED his human Son from the dead and highly exalted the resurrected Son of MAN to become God’s ETERNAL Son, the FIRSTBORN among MANY brethren.


Please read Hebrews 1:5.


“For unto which of the angels said he at any time, You are my Son, THIS DAY have I BEGOTTEN you? And again, I WILL BE to him a Father, and he SHALL BE to me a Son?”


Please read the study “WHEN DID JESUS BECOME GOD'S ETERNAL SON?” 

And for all the other verses that SEEM to be saying that Jesus is the creator please read the following studies. For you see, it is the incorrect INTERPRETATION of those verses that cause them to seem like Jesus is the creator. But when you understand that the English word “THINGS” is NOT in the original text in any of those verses then you can clearly see that the creation that is spoken of in those verses is God’s NEW CREATION or NEW CREATURES that are BEING CREATED IN Jesus Christ.

Here are the links to those studies that SEEM to be saying that Jesus is the creator. “EPHESIANS 3:9-11 DID JESUS CREATE ALL THINGS?”, “WHAT DOES COLOSSIANS 2:1,17 TRULY MEAN?”,   “WHO CREATED ALL THINGS the Father or the Son?”, “REVELATION 3:14 IS JESUS THE CREATOR?, “WHAT DOES FIRSTBORN OF EVERY CREATURE MEAN?” and “IS JESUS THE CREATOR OF A CREATION?”.

And for further study on the subject of the doctrine of the Trinity to decide for yourself whether or not it is sound Biblical teaching please read all the studies under the heading >>>A LIST OF STUDIES ON THE TRINITY!<<<


Thanks for reading and may God bless you richly as you continue to seek the TRUTH of the WHOLE word of Almighty God.


Your brother in our Lord Jesus Christ,

Brother Mark.
