JESUS’ S EXISTENCE BEFORE HE CAME TO EARTH
Jesus did exist before He was born as Mary’s child. Jesus existed along with the Father and the Holy Spirit as a separate and distinct God before anything was brought into existence.
In the book of Revelations Jesus said, “I am the alpha and the omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end”.
This passage provides three titles that belong to Jesus. The phrases “the first and last,” “the alpha and the omega,” and “the beginning and the end” all describe Jesus. He existed in the beginnig before there was anything.
In Revelation we learn that Jesus, “the alpha and the omega” and “the beginning and the end” himself to be God.
In Isaiah it says, “. . . . Ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God besides me? Yea, there is no God; I know not any”.
Most of the passages in the Old Testament referring to God (about 95% of the time) pertain to Jesus! In other words titles such as Jehovah, The Almighty, Lord God Almighty, etc., usually refer to the God we call Jesus.
Jesus told Isaiah that there is no other Rock (or God) besides Himself. Of course, Jesus was not talking about the Father or the Holy Spirit (who are separate and distinct Gods all in one. When Jesus said there is no other God, He affirmed there was no other God overseeing Israel.
The Bible teaches that Jesus is called God, the Lord Almighty, Israel’s King and Redeemer, The Rock, The First and Last, The Alpha and The Omega, The Beginning and The End. These passages should remove any doubt that Jesus existed long before He was born of Mary.
In John Jesus says, “Most truly I say to you, before Abraham came into existence, I have been”.
The “our” in Genesis 1:26 refers to the Trinity; God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
Jesus is The Word of God which became flesh in the fullness of time.
John “In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him; and without Him was not anything made. That was made.”
This tells us, “And the word was made flesh, and dwelt among us… .”
This is Jesus. Jesus is God incarnate.
Maybe this will help with some references that show Jesus existed before His earthly birth to Mary.
