From the beginning From the beginning John 1:1-4 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.
John 1:5-9 The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. There came a man sent from God, whose name was John. He came as a witness, to testify about the Light, so that all might believe through him. He was not the Light, but he came to testify about the Light. There was the true Light which, coming into the world, enlightens every man.
John 1:10-14 He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. He came to His own, and those who were His own did not receive Him. But 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 were 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, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.
John 1:15-17 John testified about Him and cried out, saying, "This was He of whom I said, `He who comes after me has a higher rank than I, for He existed before me.'" For of His fullness we have all received, and grace upon grace. For the Law was given through Moses; grace and truth were realized through Jesus Christ.
The Word The Word The Life The Life The light The light
Genesis 2:7 Then the LORD God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being. The very breath of God is that which gives life is that which gives life
John 4:41 Many more believed because of His word; John 5:38 "You do not have His word abiding in you, for you do not believe Him whom He sent. John 8:55 and you have not come to know Him, but I know Him; and if I say that I do not know Him, I will be a liar like you, but I do know Him and keep His word. Rom 9:28 FOR THE LORD WILL EXECUTE HIS WORD ON THE EARTH, THOROUGHLY AND QUICKLY." Heb 1:3 And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power. The Word of God Rev 19:13 He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.
Ps 33:6 By the word of the LORD the heavens were made, And by the breath of His mouth all their host. Ps 103:20 Bless the LORD, you His angels, Mighty in strength, who perform His word, Obeying the voice of His word! Ps 107:19-20 Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble; He saved them out of their distresses. He sent His word and healed them, And delivered them from their destructions. Deut 30:14 "But the word is very near you, in your mouth and in your heart, that you may observe it. Rom 10:8 But what does it say? "THE WORD IS NEAR YOU, IN YOUR MOUTH AND IN YOUR HEART“ that is, the word of faith which we are preaching, Rom 10:17 So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.
John 14:6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me. Word & Life together in Jesus
The other life essential LIGHT Matt 4:16 "THE PEOPLE WHO WERE SITTING IN DARKNESS SAW A GREAT LIGHT, AND THOSE WHO WERE SITTING IN THE LAND AND SHADOW OF DEATH, UPON THEM A LIGHT DAWNED.“ John 1:4 In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. John 1:9 There was the true Light which, coming into the world, enlightens every man. John 8:12 Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, "I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life." John 9:5 "While I am in the world, I am the Light of the world." Eph 5:8 for you were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light
The gift He freely gives to us…… His presence always with us. Word – powerful and directing Life – breathed intimately, unfailing Light – leads us from darkness All these are eternal WHAT A GIFT!
Matt 1:23 "BEHOLD, THE VIRGIN SHALL BE WITH CHILD AND SHALL BEAR A SON, AND THEY SHALL CALL HIS NAME IMMANUEL," which translated means, "GOD WITH US." "GOD WITH US."
