Jesus has always lived

Many people have heard that Jesus is the Son of God and was born of the virgin Mary. But how many stop and realize that He was with the Father before He took on the form of human flesh?Many references in the old testament speak of the coming Messiah. I’d like to show a couple that prove He was with the Father from The days of eternity. In the Old Testament (or the first covenant) in the book of Micah chapter 5 it reads; “But I asked for you Bethlehem Ephrathah, too little to be among the clans of Judah, from you One will go forth from Me to be the ruler in Israel. His goings forth are from long ago, from the days of eternity.” Therefore He will give them up until the time when she who is in labor has born a child. Here we see that Messiah Jesus Christ came from the days of eternity and was with the father all the time. When the prophesied time came, God the father put Him in the belly of Mary as human flesh and He gave up his dwelling place in heaven with the father to become a man and become our propitiation (our sacrifice ) the one who takes our place to save us from our sins. Jesus obeyed the father and did this willingly out of pure agape love, love that man cannot comprehend or understand until he is born again. 
 “For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us, and the government will rest upon His shoulders and His name will be called wonderful Counselor, mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of peace; there will be no end to the increase of his government or of peace, On the throne of David and over His kingdom to establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness from then on and forever more.” Here we see in the statement He is Eternal Father, Prince of peace. Jesus is eternal and one with the Father, has always been and always will be. The kingdom in this passage refers to the kingdom of God that Jesus set up when He came and lived among us died and was resurrected. The kingdom of God is forever and ever and ever.
 In Exodus 3:2 Messiah Jesus is called the angel of the Lord and it is He who appeared in a blazing fire from the midst of a bush that Moses saw, the bush that did not burn up or was consumed. He is the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end. 
Turning to the new testament or new covenant in John chapter 8 verse 57,58 Jesus speaking to the Jews said “your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day and he saw it and was glad.” So the Jews said to him you are not yet 50 years old and you have you seen Abraham?” Jesus said to them “truly truly I say to you before Abraham was born I am.” So here Jesus himself says that he was around way before Abraham was even born in the heavens with the father and the angels. Notice he said before Abraham was Born “I Am.” The very same phrase that Moses heard from the burning bush when he asked God who shall I say that sent me and God says I am that I am, tell them I am sent you. 
Looking further in John chapter 1 we read “In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God He was in the beginning with God, all things came into being through Him and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life and the life was the light of men. Here we see the messiah Jesus Christ is the living word of God and that every thing that has ever been created or come into existence was created through him. Messiah Jesus Christ the Only begotten Son of the living God is the voice of the Father. It goes on to say that He is the light of the world and as many as received Him to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name who are born not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man but of God. “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us. They saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. For the law was given through Moses grace and truth we realized through Jesus Christ. Now if Jesus is the only begotten Son of God then there can be no other, no other God at all, no other name under heaven in which we must be saved! No one has seen God at any time the only begotten God who is in the bosom of the Father He has explained Him. God is spirit, no man has ever seen God in his existence, his spirit being. Yet He assumed visible form which men saw in Old Testament times and in Jesus, man could see God. Christ gives life He gives grace and truth. John the Baptist stated “behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world” and in him messiah Jesus Christ we live and move and have our being (exist)for we are his offspring (children), born again by the Spirit of God.
This my friends is why Jesus says I am the way the truth and the life and no man can come to the father except by me. This my friends is also why Christianity is the right way because only Christianity has the Son of God Jesus Christ as the cornerstone for salvation. Without him Jesus you cannot know the Father, you cannot come to the Father, you cannot be saved and born of the spirit and you’ll be lost. If you put your trust in other gods like Allah or Buddha or Hinduism or any other false god, you cannot be born again and go to heaven and know the only true God, the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob. Jesus said you must be born again. For the wind blows and you hear the sound of it but do not know where it comes from or where it is going, so is everyone born of the Spirit of God. This my friends is why there so much hatred against Christians and Christianity and in the name of Jesus and the cross; because it is the only way to heaven period. The demons of hell blind those souls so they won’t be saved. But to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ you shall be saved and the scales will fall off of your eyes. That’s God’s promise. Allah doesn’t love you, Buddha doesn’t love you nor any other false gods of hundreds of other religions. Those religions want domination by rules and works, but Jesus really does love you. God the Father really does love you. The One true God doesn’t want sacrifice of yourself or your life. He says don’t you know “I require mercy and not sacrifice?” Jesus said the Father and I are One and if you have seen me, you have seen the Father. Jesus is the perfect representation of the father. You must be born again to see the kingdom of heaven. Are you born again? You have the witness within yourself. If your not then repent of your sins, believe that Jesus is Gods Son and died in your place, give your life to Him and get baptized as He commanded. He will not leave you as orphans but will come to you when you call upon his name. Do it today do it now, come into His kingdom and we’ll meet in heaven…..
