The Person of Jesus -3

Where did Jesus come from?
I am aware this question has generated more questions than answers in the hearts of men. The problem with a lot of folks is that they lack the commitment to finding out the truth about what they really believe. The bible to a lot of people is a story book and nothing more. The bible is much more than a story book. It's an inspired documentation of spiritual realities by men of faith. Its the written revelation of the personality of  God. It's important you understand this because what I am about to share is more than a story, it's the truth. Jesus said, "And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free" (John 8:32  KJV). It's time to know the truth about where Jesus came from.

According to John 20:30-31, Apostle John shows us Jesus did many other signs in the presence of his disciples that were not documented in his gospel but then he said, "But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God; and that believing ye might have life through his name". If it's true that Jesus is the Son of God, then, it must mean God is his father. Is it possible for a Spiritual God to have a physical child? Emphatically yes! Remember he is God. 

"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. In him was life; and the life was the light of men". In verse 14 of the same chapter, John shows us where Jesus came from when he said "and the Word became flesh and dwelt among us (we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the father,) full of grace and truth". 

I need not say much, the scripture above is clear and straight forward. God is the same as his Words. God's Word reveals who He is. It's impossible to know God without knowing his Word. To know the Word of God is to know God. This truth makes the Word as spiritual as God is.  One time in the book of the beginnings (Genesis), the bible says, "And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the Garden in the cool of the day" (Genesis 3:8). This verse did not say the voice of God was flying or moving but walking. It must mean that the Word is a person. Adam and Eve heard the Voice (the Word) of God walking in the garden. They didn't see the Voice of God but they heard his steps in the garden walking. This is remarkable. I will stop here but watch out for part 4.


  1. Thank God for sending us Jesus. Until He came, man was irredeemable but He changed all of that when He came.

    Jesus is the son of God & He is alive forevermore! Don't know what my life would have been without Him, I'm so grateful that He came.
