In the Beginning

It was through the words of Solomon that the Word of Wisdom revealed to us the truth that He was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or for our frame of reference, before the earth was. When there were no depths He revealed that He was brought forth. When there were no fountains abounding with water, before the mountains were settled, before the hills was He brought forth.

He revealed through the words of Solomon that before the Father made the earth, or the fields, or before HE yet create through Him the highest part of dust in the world, He was brought forth from God to be HIS Son. The Word of Wisdom revealed, that when the Father prepared the heavens, He was there. When HE set a compass upon the face of the depth, when HE established the clouds above, when He sterngthened the fountains of the deep, when He gave to the sea HIS law, that the waters should not pass HIS commandment, when HE appointed the foundations of the earth, then He, Son of God, the Word of Wisdom was by HIM as One brought up with HIM. The Word of Wisdom testified also that He was daily the Father's delight, rejoicing always before HIM and rejoicing in the habitable part of HIS earth.

Through His testimony, the Word of Wisdom revealed that He was the Father's delight and that His delight were with the sons of men. For this reason He says to man, "...Hearken unto me" "For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the LORD."

The Word testified through His servant how the Father did all these thing through Him. But now the Father testified through HIS Word by His servant Paul, and said, "God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by [his] Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; Who being the brightness of [his] glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;

"Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they. For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son? And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.

"And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire. But unto the Son [he saith], Thy throne, O God, [is] for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness [is] the sceptre of thy kingdom. Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, [even] thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands:

"They shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment; And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail. But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool? Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?" (Hebrews 1:1-14)

Notice that it was God the Father, WHO revealed to the church that it was HIS will that all the angels of God were to worship HIS Son as God. We now know today that not all the angels of God obeyed HIM in following HIS will. In fact many in the world are rejecting to follow the will of God. But to those who follow the will of God, Jesus, the Son of God said, "I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father" (John 16:28). He also said, "...I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and [to] my God, and your God" (John 20:17).

With these words of record in the Scripture, it should be clear that Jesus came from His throne at His Father side to come and save man, yet, many ignore the Word of Truth to believe the words of men. If Jesus and the Father were the same person, why would He say He came forth from the Father to return to the Father? Why would He have to return to the Father, if He is already the Father?
