The Word
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God
John 1:1-2 (ESV)

Does this confuse anyone? Itís alright if it does it has me confused a little too but letís take it word by word and see if we cannot make it clear. As we look at this passage of scripture we need to understand that; in the beginning, means to be the first, power, principality or rule it applies to time place or rank of something. When we see it in this context it has to do with the ever present existence of God. God was first when we look at creation and the narrative we find in Genesis; God spoke everything into creation. That is the Word, in Greek it is the word logos it is used in the context of preaching or sharing the word of instruction. So if in the beginning the first power and rule gave instruction that all things be created we now have the beginning of understanding. Now the key word in this passage is not what you might think it is. The word; was, is actually the word with the most power it denotes an agreement it is an imperfect verb that in its placement in the passage denotes similarity between one thing and another it ties the two things the Word and God together. The Word being instruction and God being the supreme Divinity have always been and will always be together in one purpose and desire. We see in verse 2 the pronoun He that was a direct reference to Jesus who we are told was with God and the Word from the very beginning of time.

Now that I have confused you more let me share what my heart tells me. This is actually a quick explanation of the Trinity of God. In these 24 words John explains the trinity of God for us. We see God the Father who is eternal and has no beginning or end, we see the Holy Spirit that is the empowerment of Godís instruction in our lives and on creation and then we see Jesus who was with them in all things providing for us a bridge for you and me from God to us. It really is that simple. I pray you have a blessed and prosperous day as you walk in the light of His Word.
