Just Ask Jesus: John 1:1 Journal Challenge Day 2
The Lord prompted me to select 10 verses and issue a journaling challenge to ask Jesus to answer questions about these common verses. I will share only a small segment of what people sent me as a result of this challenge. Please feel free to ask Jesus these same questions and reply to this post with what Jesus said to you too! Jesus’ comments will be in italics, as usual.
Jesus, how was the Word in the beginning, and with God and God all at the same time?
What Jesus said to me, Patty-
To understand the Name “Word” you must go back to Genesis 1:1 to also understand another one of my Names. I AM Elohim. “In the beginning Elohim created the heavens and the earth. Elohim is the plural name of the singular God. The Trinity.. we are ONE.
The “beginning” in these two verses does not mean the beginning of US, rather the beginning of the created world. Notice that when (We) Elohim spoke, things came into being. The Name “Word” means My/Our power of speaking to create. In the beginning was the Word because every utterance created, or causes something to happen.
The Word was with God. When Jesus became flesh and was born as a man, he was 100% man and 100% God. Jesus is God, just as I the Father AM God and the Holy Spirit is God. WE are ONE. But, when Jesus was on earth as a man, He did nothing on His own initiative, but only what He saw Me (the Father) doing and by the power of the Holy Spirit (John 5:19) See how the Word was with God?
Only the perfection that exists in Him as God could have allowed Him to handle the full measure of anointing that it took to live the perfect life. Jesus was the spotless lamb necessary to bring forth the plan of salvation so that people could come near a holy and righteous God. And we so desperately wanted that relationship.
When Jesus spoke, even nature obeyed Him. And the Word was God.
Thank you Lord. That is much clearer to me now!
What Jesus said to Evelyn-
Dear Yeshua, how was the Word in the beginning, and with God and God all at the same time?
My child I created the world by My breathe of words, the words was from Me and the words represent Me. Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of My mouth. My spirit will be in tune with your spirit when you obey my words and seek me.
Amazing Lord, your words are so powerful. You are Almighty Lord! You are the same, yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
Indeed my child, I am the same all the time and have not changed. However, people have hardened their hearts and fulfill their deceitful heart and desires instead of worshipping Me, they have idolatry and distorted all my words and instructions.
Oh Yeshua, please guide me to see the truth of your words and let not the eyes of my heart be deceived by men. Give me the revelation and wisdom to discern the truth.
Seek me always; I will fill you with the truth.
Thank you Lord, for being my wonderful counselor and Lord. I look forward to serving you in a greater depth.
If you would like to be able to Ask Jesus questions like we do in many of our blogs and have Him answer back to you personally, we can show you how. Please see our foundational teaching on 4 Keys to Hearing God's Voice. If you already know how to have these conversations, join the discussion and share what Jesus is saying to you!
