In the beginning....

.John 1 v 1-5:
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

2 The same was in the beginning with God.

3 All things were made through him; and without him was not anything made that has been made.

4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

5 And the light shines in the darkness; and the darkness apprehended it not.

Genesis 1: In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.

John 1 v 1:
In the beginning!!!! was the “word”=Jesus. and the Word was with God...and the WORD WAS GOD!

So, from the above verses in John chapter 1, the WORD was with GOD and the WORD was God...

Genesis 1: GOD created the heavens and the earth.....

John 1 verse 3: All things were made through Him....Jesus/God, and without Him was not anything made, that has been made, in other words, Unless Jesus/God made it, nothing was made!

HE created everything.....

You....Me.....the world as we know it......yet......

( How would you like it, if you had made...created something,......and after a while, this creation you made...wanted nothing to do with you? Maybe your children????......)

John verse 4: In him was life......he gave us all life!

John 1 v 5: And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness apprehended it not.....

Apprehended=catch on; =understood;

The darkness did not understand it.....did not “catch on” that Jesus was/is the light, and the darkness did “not get it”

So, who...what is meant by darkness? Barnes' note on the verse tells me...( “Darkness, in the Bible, commonly denotes ignorance, guilt, or misery.)

See Mathew 4 v 16 quoted from Isaiah 9 v 2: “The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light:

they that dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined”. (With the arrival of Jesus)

So from that, we can understand that the people in those days lived much as todays people live.....

Doing their own thing...

not wanting to know or hear about the “word”

Ignorant of the Bible...........

misery in their lives because of this ignorance..........

sickness, misery....till.....they see...find out...who....what the ‘LIGHT’ is...

So, now we celebrate Christmas......God/Jesus the creator of the world everything....

John 1 v 3: without Him was not anything made......yet......He loves His creation so much, and He can see how much they need help,

(in which they are helplessly useless in) to help themselves,

that He comes as a helpless baby himself, to do what he can, to restore this creation back to himself.

The only way he “can” do it, is by becoming one of this creation, and mingle with it.......

to later offer Himself up as a sacrifice, which is the only way possible.

It has to be someone totally sinless and perfect, to be able to reinstate the bond between the creator and his creation.

Jesus came.......... HE IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON!

Bless you all
