In the beginning was the one who is called the Word. The Word was with God and was truly God. From the very beginning the Word was with God. And with this Word, God created all things. Nothing was made without the word. Everything that was created received its life from him, and his life gave light to everyone. He came into His own world but His own Nation did not welcome Him. Yet some people accepted Him and put their faith in Him. ( Only the ones that put there faith in Him can have a new beginning, a fresh start, have our past failure, past hurst, past guilt erase)
Because some put there faith in Him, so He gave them the right to be the children of God. They were not God`s children by nature or ant human desires. God himself was the one who made them his children.The Word became a human being and lived here with us. This Historical event means that not only is my sins forgiviven, but i have the power to be an overcomer, I am more than a conqueror, I am the head and not the tail, I am somebody in Christ. The text tells us that there was nothing before God created it. No stars, no moon, no water, no earth.
It is the same way in our life today, we all have a BC life( before Christ) the life that was up and down, happy one day, sad the next day, love one day , hated the next day. But now we are in our AC life( after Christ) children of the most high God, I can have joy all the time because my joy is in the Lord, so now when bad things happen I can stand on the promises of God. God children shall live my faith. Psalm 34:19 ‘ Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivereth him out of the all. Whatever the child of God is going through, He will bring us out, you are His child. There are times when nothing significant happens because of past events.Then there are times when events may occur that impel the current of history forward. And whenever such an event has occurred, everything thereafter is different, it is then impossible to ignore the events or to turn back the clock as if this had not happened. Because God in the life of Christ intervened mightily in history, the old world order is shaken in its foundations, God`s new age has dawned, God has taken the initiative. The early Christian concentrated proclamation was: The Eternal God whom no man seen or can see, who lives in a light that no man can approach. But thank God for Jesus, the inaudible has become audible, the invisible has become visible, the intangible has become tangible, the irreproachable has become accessible. In Colossians 1:15, Christ is called the image of the invisible God. In John 14:9, Jesus tells us ‘ he that hath seen me hath seen the Father. Jesus was the revelation of God and this revelation was illumination- ‘ for God was in Christ. This revelation was the opportunity for renewal, I can be born again, I can have new blood, the same DNA of Christ. When the light comes on, when i get this revelation i can never be the same, I can not be defeated, i have the victory. In Jesus Christ, ‘ I AM of the old Testament becomes the ‘ Thou Art’ of the New Testament. When the proper time had fully come- God sent forth his Son born of a woman-born subiject to the Law-that we might be adopted and have sonship conferred upon us- be recognized as God`s sons. He came to ‘seek and save the lost. His coming was an invasion of history from beyond history in order to redeem history. Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me. I once was lost but now am found,was blind, but now I see. I was nothing before Christ came into my life, I was 30 years old with a family and the so called dream, but i was nothing, money without Christ means you have nothing, a pretty wife or handsome husband without Christ means you have nothing, but if I have the revelation of who Jesus is and what He did on Calvary I have it all and I am somebody.
Before Christ( BC) I was nothing. After Christ( AC) I am all that. Whoever is not conscious of the presence of Christ in daily living is living in ( BC) and before God there was nothing. Jesus Christ, the risen, reigning Savior, stands at the midpoint of history as the end of one world and the beginning of a new history. Because of the resurrection of Christ a new power has been let loose in the world. This power has changed lives. This power has transformed more barren deserts into flower gardens, more gloom into glory, more fear into faith, more dark nights of despair into days bright hope, more weakness into strength, more burdens into blessings, more deadness into life, more sadness into gladness, more tragedies into triumphs, more mourns into joys. The blood never loses its power.
