John 1:1-2
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. NKJV

Mathew begins the story of God made flesh with His long earthly genealogy. Mark simply calls Jesus, the Son of God and his gospel account as ‘the beginning of good news proclaimed by the prophets of old’. Dr Luke starts his report with the immediate family matters of Jesus and then proceeds through an unfolding of those matters fulfilled before him, the reading of which is like a full prescription from the pharmacy, all ingredients present; all tested and correct, with dosage information attached. Ah but dear John, he, like a fearless and muscular world class cliff diver, brashly discards his crisp and cotton towel at the top of the rocks of eternity, and from those ageless mountains quickly edges himself toward the edge of time, takes one short look and one then big breath and plunges himself down the vortex of infinity making an ismel knife slice on the surface of the waiting waters of the temporal start point of all things material. “In the beginning…”

Before the sharp feet piercing edges of eternity, and before that plunging head first leap, John names the object of his loving discourse: it is, ‘The Word.’ Here then is the chief title of the Son of God; ‘The Word.’ Here is the utterance of the unseen God, the echo that encompasses the immeasurable distances of cold, black, empty space; the inviting whisper at the cold mornings of all our Adulums; the mirror of the Almighty; the mysterious effulgent and blood pumping heart of God the Father made manifest before the makings of His creation; ‘The Word’; The Logos; He who was before the beginning, and was with God as the preeminent presence for the coming creation. ‘The Word’ was ‘with’ God before the creation, ‘from’ God, even ‘in direct and close relation to’ God, indeed, The Word was God.

The doctrine of the Trinity is the centre of the revelation of God. Christianity is Trinitarian and without this doctrine, without the revelation of God the three in one, that great trumpet sound of the meta-narrative of man’s fall and his subsequent redemption through the shed blood of the Son of God, turns into, quite simply, the quiet flatulence of a small child’s little red balloon unexpectedly deflating at the end of the Christmas party; where the jelly was watery; where the ice cream was runny; and Santa’s beard had a cockroach in it whilst his breath smelled of days old booze. If Jesus is not God, nothing of Christianity is right. This is the Word who by the breath of His mouth breathed stars into outer space.(Psalm 33:6) This is the Word who by the breath of His mouth breathed healing into inner space. (Psalm 107:20) This is the Word who signed His name on the patent sheets of a billion different suns. (Psalm 119:89) This is the Word whose voice commands and controls the mighty millennial storms of the weather systems on our red giant neighbor, and then reaches out and touches our wet pink little noses with the delicate cold tenderness of silently falling snow flake. (Psalm 147:15-18). Jesus is not merely the medium of the expression of the Most High, HE IS THE MOST HIGH. “The Word………. was God”. 

Christian; The Trinity is a truth made known in the 66 Books of the Holy Bible and this truth of Jesus being very God has been viciously attacked for two thousand years. This truth shall be attacked again and vehemently so. Never the less, Jesus is God. Bow down and worship Him.

Listen:- And Thomas answered and said to Him, "My Lord and my God!" Jesus said to him, "Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed." And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book; but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name. John 20:28-31 NKJV

Pray: -  Behold the stiller of all storms, the calmer of all seas. The Conqueror of the raging hosts from whom the darkness flees. Captain, Master, Word of God, light of our blood washed ways, with great delight we’ll sing Your praise, through heaven’s endless days. Amen and ame
