The Word Was God

Written by Reverend Haskel Swain, March 8, 1998

    In the beginning was the WORD, God's WORD (which was God), and the WORD was with God (the WORD was in God and the WORD came out of God's mouth. Therefore, that which came out of God's mouth was His WORD, voice). That which was heard was the voice or WORD of God. The WORD (or voice) was God's statement. God had a voice or WORD from the beginning. All things were made by Him (God, Jehovah) and nothing was made without Him, St. John 1:3. God is as good as His word. God spoke and said let there be light and there was light. As God speaks, His WORD creates.
    God's name is Jehovah. In Him was LIFE, meaning in Him was a seed (life), as of a seed in a man who fathers a child; and because of the seed, Jesus became the light of man. It was this seed that brought light to the world. God's WORD went forth to all nations by His prophets. His (God's) WORD, which was spoken through the Prophets, became flesh and dwelt among us, St. John 1:14. The seed of God, which was alive in His loins, was brought to Mary by the Holy Ghost, placed in her womb, and she gave birth to a son of which she was the mother and Jehovah was the father, Galatians 3:16. This was a product of Heaven and earth: Jesus, of Mary, and Christ, of God. This is why He was called Jesus the Christ Child, Galatians 3:19-20.

    Angels in the hand of a mediator ordained this conception. There must be two before there can be a mediator. The Holy Ghost was a mediator between God and Mary, Galatians 3:16-20.
    In the beginning, the WORD, concerning Jesus, was spoken through the Prophets. Jesus, a fulfillment of the WORD, was the light of the world, a savior of man. He was the only begotten Son of God. God has billions of created and adopted sons, but only one begotten son, which is Jesus Christ. Since Christ was in His Father's loins from the beginning, all things which God Jehovah made, Jesus Christ can say He (Jesus) made. Hebrews 7:9-10 says that Levi is to receive tithes of his brethren because he (Levi) paid tithe to Melchisedec hundreds of years before he (Levi) was born while he was in Abraham's loins. This is why Christ spoke out of Jesus and said, "Before Abraham was, I am." Also, He (Christ) spoke out of the mouth of Mary's son, a Hebrew man, and said: "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up." This is Christ talking through Jesus. The people thought it was Joseph's son, Jesus, talking. They were looking at the carnal and not the spiritual. Jesus said, I stand at the door and knock. If any man will open the door, I will come in.  This was Christ again using the mouth of Jesus. Jesus, Mary's son, is in heaven at the right hand of God.

    The Bible states: "Christ within the hope of glory".  Jesus was in the tomb three days and nights, but Christ went and ministered to those who had been told before hand of his life on earth and to many souls that were in prison.  At the same time, Jesus was still in the tomb. Christ spoke through Jesus and said to the man on the cross, "This day you will be with me in Paradise."  It looked as if Jesus made that statement, but instead it was Christ.  While Jesus was in the tomb, Christ was having a Camp meeting in paradise.  After three days and nights, Christ remembers: "I spoke through the mouth of my body (Jesus) and said Destroy this temple (the flesh body) and I will raise it up in three days."

    Christ came to the tomb where Jesus was laid and entered back into the body and Jesus became alive and rose from the dead.  The scripture states: "If Christ be in you, the same spirit that raised Jesus from the dead will also quicken your mortal body."

    St. John 3:16 states that God did begat a son; one and only one.  Any Bible that has the word (begotten) removed from St. John 3:16 and other verses, is not a Bible that anyone should read.  God and Mary made a baby; God was the father and Mary was the mother.  Galatians 4:4 states that God sent forth His son (made) of a woman. Jehovah did not come to earth as a baby, but the results of His spoken WORD, Jesus Christ, carried out the Father's will.  There are two (2) wills: the will of the Father and the will of the Son.  Jesus came not to do His will but the will of the Father whom He honors more than Himself.

    God wanted a son; He spoke His WORD through His Prophets and it came to pass.  A Son was born.  Now, God's blessing and power have been placed in the hands of His only begotten son, Jesus Christ.  In the beginning, it was God Jehovah, the Creator, and His WORD, His voice.
