Jarrod, what generation occurred at creation?
The Word was spoken. That is the means by which the creation occurred. Observe:And God said, "Let there be..."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 any thing made that was made.
Before this world was created, or as far as any creation took place, God dwelled in eternity~Jesus Christ in his DIVINE nature was I AM THAT I AM....PERIOD!~Exodus 3:14 he was BEFORE all creation!
I think I agree, but "Jesus in His DIVINE nature" is a confusing phrase. Jesus is the Word-made-flesh. Prior to the incarnation, I would name Him as "the Word" rather than "Jesus" (His "new name" which is given later).
You seem to have equated "being spoken" as His origin. This logic is wrong, and not intended on my part. The Word exists from eternity-past. Being spoken is NOT His beginning, though it IS
Jarrod, you are confused and confusing others in the process.
I am not
confused. Not even a little. I know - exactly
- what I believe in this regard.
Confusing others? Probably. But then, they are already confused, and they probably need to get more confused before they can get less confused.
