The ERA BEFORE TIME – Profane Mystery Worldview Revealed

Contents

INTRODUCTION

As I was editing this study, the Holy Spirit helped me to realize how this study “dovetailed” with my previous paper “A Study on the MYSTERY of the ETERNAL Jesus Christ as God/Man Resolved!” When you have time, PLEASE read this study. It will help you to have a more complete knowledge of Jesus Christ as God/Man.  Click on this link for this study: www.pastorharrysimons.com/manjesus

We must know and understand as much about Jesus Christ as we possibly can, but it can get complicated! We are even going to have to look into “King Melchizedek” to get a clearer understanding about ETERNITY. Click on this link for another’s thoughts about Melchizedek and ETERNITY so you will know more this:

I believe I must make known everything that I know and understand about God the Father and Jesus His Son to anyone who is interested. Why is this so important to me? As I study the Scriptures, it helps me to LOVE God more by knowing Him better. Let’s study Jesus’ Own Testimony:

Hosea 4:6 My {God’s} people are destroyed for lack of knowledge {about Me}; because you [the priestly nation {New Testiment Church people}] have rejected knowledge {about God}, I will also reject you that you shall be no priest to Me; seeing you have forgotten the law of your God, I will also forget your children. AMP

John 8:23-24 He {Jesus} said to them {the gathered Jews/people}, You are from below; I am from above {I share God’s Throne with My Father in His ETERNAL Kingdom in the Third Heaven}. You are of this world (of this earthly order); I am not of this world. 24 That is why I told you that you will die in (under the curse of) your sins; for if you do not believe that I am He [Whom I claim to be — if you do not adhere to, trust in, and rely on Me], you will die in your sins. AMP

Let’s examine Jesus’s Testimony before I move on – In verse 23, He tells us where He lives and Who He lives with. In verse 24, He tells us the consequences for NOT having as complete a faith in Him as we should have “you will die in (under the curse of) your sins; for if you do not believe that I am He [Whom I claim to be — if you do not adhere to, trust in, and rely on Me], you will die in your sins.” I must insert some Scriptures to give us a perspective as to the period of time – ETERNITY through the end age – this entails.

The first one is from Hebrews 13:8 where it simply states “that Jesus Christ (the Messiah) is [always] the same, yesterday, today, [yes] and forever (to the ages).” AMP I believe that when Jesus was here on earth some 2,000 years ago, that whatever He was in Being as God/Man is what He has always been, and He will always be because He is ETERNAL and unchanging!

Malachi 3:6 For I am the Lord, I do not change; that is why you, O sons of Jacob, are not consumed. AMP

There is a Scripture that hardly anyone uses where Jesus “a mere man claims to be God,” AND He does NOT deny the Jews accusation against Him because He is Truth!

John 10:33 The Jews replied, We are not going to stone You for a good act, but for blasphemy, because You, a mere Man, make Yourself [out to be] God. AMP

John 14:6 Jesus said to him, I am the Way and the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father except by (through) Me. AMP

Moving on. I am still very interested in the ETERNAL ERA before creation and time began, and I continue to gather as much information and knowledge about God and His Kingdom. and its location and attributes during this ERA as I can. Does the Bible contain information about this ERA? What about ETERNITY?, where is it located?, how large an area is ETERNITY?, what does “Melchizedek” have to do with ETERNITY?, Who is God?, where does God live?,  how long has He lived there?, how many Persons are in the Godhead?, is God’s Throne in heaven?, which heaven?, how large is the area for God’s Throne?, what are some of the amenities found in God’s Kingdom?, what form does Jesus have when He descends to earth and ascends back to heaven {known as His appearing in Christophanies}? What are some testimonies from Jesus?

Revelation 1:2 {It is I, John} Who has testified to and vouched for all that he saw [in his visions], the word of God {Who is Jesus} and the testimony of Jesus Christ. AMP?

A question for you before I start this study – “Can YOU share your testimony about Jesus with others?” “Why are so many of us so reluctant to know as much about our Lord God – Jesus Christ as we can so we can FULLY worship and serve Him in Spirit and Truth?”

John 4:24 {The Godhead including} God {The Son of Man} is a Spirit (a spiritual Being) and those who worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth (reality). AMP

 

PART 1 – How Does the Bible Explain ETERNITY?

The Bible shares with us from Ecclesiastes 3:1 that, “God has set eternity in their {men’s} hearts.” This means that all of us because we are created in the image of God have an intuitive awareness that one’s human life does not stop at one’s physical death. The Bible contains the most compelling and authoritative words ever said about life beyond the grave.

John 3:16 For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost

{FOREVER separated from God in Hell}) but have eternal (everlasting {resurrected} life {with God in His ETERNAL Kingdom in the third heaven}. AMP

Before I go any farther, I must include the highly discussed character of “Melchizedek.” He was known as “resembling the Son of God.” Jesus was after the order of Melchizedek. Meaning without beginning. Not just Eternal with reference to future. But Eternal in the past as well. Thus His human nature is Eternal to the future. For more information my webmaster Stewart Waterhouse furnished a link –

https://www3.nd.edu/~jneyrey1/days.html#:~:text=The%20author%20of%20Heb%207,identification%20of%20his%20clan%20or

I pray this helps you to get a better understanding of ETERNITY.

Hebrews 7:3 {“Melchizedek” was} Without [record of] father or mother or ancestral line, neither with beginning of days nor ending of life, but, resembling the Son of God {Jesus Christ}, he continues to be a priest without interruption and without successor {All are characteristics of God!}. AMP

Continuing on, there is one truth that I believe and know about ETERNITY – it has NO START OR BEGINNING in time, nor having an END to anyone’s personal existence! Upon our death, we will live somewhere – either WITH God in His ETERNAL Kingdom in the Third Heaven or in Hell separated from God for all of ETERNITY! I believe the Third Heaven is located beyond our Second Heaven {called the Celestial Heaven} and is so immense in area that it is beyond anything that we can envision or even imagine. It is the ETERNAL abode of the Godhead! It is supposedly best described in the Book of Enoch which is NOT in our Bible. But the Bible does share with us that God inhabits ETERNITY, and believe me, it is NOT a shabby place!

Isaiah 57:15 For thus says the high and lofty One {God} — He Who inhabits eternity, Whose name is Holy: I dwell in the high and holy place {in My Kingdom in the Third Heaven}, but {I also dwell} within him {or her My redeemed Children on earth} who is of a thoroughly penitent and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble and to revive the heart of the thoroughly penitent [bruised with sorrow for sin] {the true Christian believer}.  [Matt 5:3.] AMP

 

PART 2 – Scriptures That Reveal the ERA BEFORE Creation and Time.

There are Scriptures that help to reveal this ERA BEFORE creation and time, and what God the Father was doing during this ERA. We know that He was writing in His Book of Life with His plans for ALL humans who are naturally conceived throughout world history during this ERA. We also know that as the architect for all of creation, this ERA was when He made His plans for it, and He gave Jesus His authority, heirship, and ownership over it.

Matthew 28:18-20 Jesus approached and, breaking the silence, said to them, All authority (all power of rule) in heaven and on earth has been given to Me {by My Father}. 19 {Jesus passing some of this authority on to us} Go then and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 Teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you, and behold, I am with you all the days (perpetually, uniformly, and on every occasion), to the [very] close and consummation of the age. Amen (so let it be). AMP

Hebrews 1:2a [But] in the last of these days He has spoken to us in [person of a] Son, Whom He appointed Heir and lawful Owner of all things, AMP

I believe we MUST start our search in this ERA to know the Godhead as best we can. It seems to me that Jesus Christ has always been “SHORT CHANGED” i.e. He is NOT given enough recognition for Him as being ETERNALLY God/Man with ALL of His ministries! Are there any prophecies that state that Jesus was from ETERNITY?

Micah 5:2 But you, Bethlehem Ephratah, you are little to be among the clans of Judah; [yet] out of you shall One {Jesus} come forth for Me {God the Father} Who is to be Ruler in Israel, Whose goings forth have been from of old, from ancient days ({from} eternity).  [Gen 49:10; Matt 2:5-12; John 7:42.] AMP

PLEASE know and remember that God the Father appointed Him Heir and lawful Owner over all things, gave Him His authority over everything and also by and through Whom He created the worlds, granted Him to be Savior for ALL the world’s peoples in history, and appointed Him as Judge over ALL the peoples of the world. God the Father planned ALL of creation, but He did NOT actually bring these things forth – creation, salvation, and judgement Himself. Jesus did/is doing them ALL “TODAY”!!! Let’s start with His role as being ETERNALLY God/Man:

John 1:1-3 IN THE beginning [{a designated period during the ERA} before all time] was the Word (Christ) [#3], and the Word was with God {the Father [#1], God the Son [#2], and God the eternal Holy Spirit [#4] – Hebrews 9:14}, and the Word {Jesus Christ} was God {the Son of Man #3} Himself.  [Isa 9:6.] 2 He {God the Son of Man} was present originally with God {the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit. How many Persons do you count? I count four!} 3 All things were made and came into existence through Him; and without Him was not even one thing made that has come into being. AMP

Isaiah 9:6 For to us a Child {Jesus} is born, to us a Son {Jesus} is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder, and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father [of Eternity], Prince of Peace.  [Isa 25:1; 40:9-11; Matt 28:18; Luke 2:11.] AMP

I pray and hope that you more clearly know Jesus as God which the John text clearly shows. I believe the 1 John text clearly reveals Him as God the Son of Man:

Matthew 12:8 For the Son of Man is Lord {the Greek word for Lord can also be translated “God”} [even] of the Sabbath. AMP The ETERNAL Word of Life in 1 John 1:3 is the SAME ETERNAL Word as in John 1:1 Who was/is God. In 1 John the Word of Life is designated as existing from the beginning – in the ERA BEFORE all time began, and Jesus is credited as being ETERNALLY Life/Man.

1 John 1:1-3 [WE {Jesus ’Disciples} ARE writing] about the Word of Life [in] Him {the Man Jesus Christ}  Who existed in the SAME beginning {as John 1:1 which is a designated period during the ERA BEFORE time}, Whom we have heard, Whom we have seen with our [own] eyes, Whom we have gazed upon [for ourselves] and have touched with our [own] hands. 2 And the Life [an aspect of His being] was revealed (made manifest, demonstrated), and we saw [as eyewitnesses] and are testifying to and declare to you the Life, the eternal Life [in Him] {Jesus as Man cannot give ETERNAL Life without being ETERNAL Himself.} Who already existed with the Father and Who [actually] was made visible (was revealed) to us [His followers]. 3 What we have seen and [ourselves] heard, we are also telling you, so that you too may realize and enjoy fellowship as partners and partakers with us. And [this] fellowship that we have [which is a distinguishing mark of Christians] is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ (the Messiah).  AMP

 

PART 3 – Scriptures That Indicate What God the Father As the Architect/Designer of the Universe Was Doing During this ERA.

God the Father in this ERA BEFORE creation began {Scientists believe that creation started some 13+ billion years ago so it was BEFORE then that God.} was planning and writing the contents for His creation in His Book of Life. This is mindboggling to me that God can implement His plans after so much time:

Psalms 139:16 {King David speaking to God the Father} Your eyes saw my unformed substance {literal image}, and in Your book {of life} all the days [of my life] were written before ever they took shape, when as yet there was none of them. AMP

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome {death in your cessation of physical life}. AMP

There is also a New Testament text that shares the SAME thought about this ERA BEFOE creation and time, but I believe it deals with the future “Born Again” Saints whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life from the foundation of the world:

Ephesians 1:3-4 May blessing (praise, laudation, and eulogy) be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah) Who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing (given by the Holy Spirit) in the heavenly realm! 4 Even as [in His love] He chose us [actually picked us {redeemed Saints} out for Himself as His own] in Christ before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy (consecrated and set apart for Him) and blameless in His sight, even above reproach, before Him in love. AMP

Revelation 21:27 But nothing that defiles or profanes or is unwashed shall ever enter it {city of New Jerusalem}, nor anyone who commits abominations (unclean, detestable, morally repugnant things) or practices falsehood, but only those whose names are recorded in the Lamb’s Book of Life. AMP

 

PART 4 – God the Father’s Relationship to His Son God the Son of Man Jesus Christ:

The Bible does share some insights as to the relationship of the Father to His only Son during this ERA:

Psalms 2:7-8, 12 I will declare the decree of the Lord {God the Father}: He said to Me {Jesus}, You are My Son; this day [I declare] I have begotten You
{Jesus was NOT originally biologically reproduced, but God the Father blessed Him with His heirship and ownership. Hebrews 1:2} [Heb 1:5; 3:5,6; 2 Peter 1:17,18.] 8 Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations as Your inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth as Your possession.

12 Kiss the Son {Jesus Christ} [pay homage to Him in purity], lest He be angry and you perish in the way, for soon {during the end of the age} shall His wrath be kindled. O blessed (happy, fortunate, and to be envied) are all those who seek refuge and put their trust in Him! AMP

Daniel 7:13-14 I saw in the night visions, and behold, on the clouds of the heavens came One like a Son of man {Jesus}, and He came to the Ancient of Days {God the Father} and was presented before Him. 14 And there was given Him [the Messiah] dominion {total control over all parts of creation} and glory and kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion which shall not pass away, and His kingdom is one which shall not be destroyed.  [Rev 5:1-10.] AMP

Some Scriptures of Jesus’ own Testimony to His ETERNAL history:

John 8:23-24 He {Jesus} said to them, You are from below; I am from above {I live in My Father’s ETERNAL Kingdom in the Third Heaven. You are of this world (of this earthly order); I am not of this world. 24 That is why I told you that you will die in (under the curse of) your sins; for if you do not believe that I am He [Whom I claim to be — if you do not adhere to, trust in, and rely on Me], you will die in your sins. AMP

Revelation 1:17-18 When I {John}saw Him {Jesus}, I fell at His feet as if dead. But He laid His right hand on me and said, Do not be afraid! I am the First and the Last, [Isa 44:6.] 18 And {Jesus as God the Son of Man calls Himself} the Ever-living One [I am living in the eternity of the eternities] {is His claim as ETERNALLY being God/Man}]. I died, but see, I am alive forevermore; and I possess keys of death and Hades (the realm of the dead) {as Man}. AMP

Revelation 1:8 I am {Jesus’ referring to Himself as Deity AND Man} the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, says the Lord God {Jesus Christ}, He Who is and Who was and Who is to come, the Almighty (the Ruler of all).  [Isa 9:6.] AMP

Hebrews 1:2 [But] in the last of these days He {God the Father} has spoken to us in [the person of a] Son {Jesus Christ}, Whom He appointed Heir and lawful Owner of all things, also by and through Whom He created the worlds and the reaches of space and the ages of time [He made, produced, built, operated, and arranged them in order]. AMP

 

PART 5 – God’s Kingdom Located in ETERNITY in the Third Heaven:

I believe the ETERNAL Kingdom of God is located in the Third Heaven in ETERNITY. I believe the Third Heaven is a real and literal place, and it is where the Godhead resides with ALL of His and its amenities. As I have stated before, I firmly believe the Third Heaven to have sustenance {Eden the Garden of God for food which also}, produces oxygen, a lushness, a fragrance, tremendous peace, and beauty way beyond our wildest expectations and biggest dreams:

2 Corinthians 12:2 {Paul speaking} I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago — whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, God knows — was caught up to the third heaven. AMP

I believe that Eden the Garden of God is in the Third Heaven and the Garden of Eden was/is located on earth. They are NOT equal nor the SAME! God the Son of Man planted the Garden of Eden, placed Adam in the Garden, and He also walked there.

Genesis 2:8 And the Lord God {Jesus} planted a garden toward the east, in Eden [delight]; and there He put the man whom He had formed (framed, constituted). AMP

Genesis 3:8 And they heard the sound of the Lord God {Jesus} walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden. AMP

God’s ETERNAL Throne which seats Him and Jesus is also located in the Third Heaven and has water flowing out of it to water Eden the Garden of God.

Revelation 22:1 THEN HE {the angel} showed me the river whose waters give life, sparkling like crystal, flowing out from the throne of God and of the Lamb. AMP

 

PART 6 – Some of The ETERNAL Human Characteristics of Jesus Christ As “I AM’” That Are Part of His Own Testimony:

Before I go any further, I must elaborate on Jesus’ Title of being ETERNALLY “I AM” in PART 6 and PART 7, and I pray this makes Him more knowledgeable to you! In PART 6, Jesus claims to be “I AM” as Deity and yet He gives us certain attributes as Man. Such as – I AM the door, the living water, the bread of life, etc.

Let me ask you another question. Are there any prophecies that state that Jesus as Man was from ETERNITY?

Micah 5:2 But you, Bethlehem Ephratah, you are little to be among the clans of Judah; [yet] out of you shall One {Jesus Christ} come forth for Me {God the Father} Who is to be {a human} Ruler in Israel, Whose goings forth have been from of old, from ancient days (eternity).  [Gen 49:10; Matt 2:5-12; John 7:42.] AMP

I do not think it can get much clearer than that! We must understand that whenever Jesus claimed attributes of deity, He was stating that He was “I AM whatever,” but He could also be identifying Himself as God the Son of Man. He applied these attributes to Himself some 2,000 years ago, and because He is the SAME yesterday, today, and forever {Hebrews 13:8} means to me that He will always be these things back into ETERNITY and forward in ETERNITY i.e. God/ Man is in ETERNITY FOREVER whichever direction you want to go!!!

God the Father identifies His Name past, present, and future as “I AM:”

Exodus 3:13-14 And Moses said to God {the Father}, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I AM WHO I AM and WHAT I AM, and I WILL BE WHAT I WILL BE; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I AM has sent me to you! AMP

Jesus Christ ALSO identifies Himself as “I AM” equating Himself as Deity.

Philippians 2:6-7 Who {Jesus}, although being essentially one with God and in the form of God [possessing the fullness of the attributes which make God God], did not think this equality with God{head} was a thing to be eagerly grasped or retained, 7 But stripped Himself {EMPTIED Himself, made Himself nothing – other translations} [of all privileges and rightful dignity], so as to assume the guise of a servant (slave), in that He became like men and was born a human being. AMP

I ask you to look at verse 7 – “emptied Himself, made Himself nothing” which are phrases from other translations for “stripped Himself.” I believe “emptied Himself” to clearly show that He EMPTIED Himself 100% of being God to become 100% Man 2,000 years ago. The only thing I can see that He as Man “had in common” with His Deity was God the Holy Spirit Who enabled Him to be 100% ETERNALLY God/Man.

Hebrews 2:14 Since, therefore, [these His] children share in flesh and blood [in the physical nature of human beings], He [Himself] in a similar manner partook of the same [nature], that by [going through] death He might bring to nought and make of no effect him who had the power of death — that is, the devil — AMP

Hebrews 2:17 So it is evident that it was essential that He be made like His brethren in every respect, in order that He might become a merciful (sympathetic) and faithful High Priest in the things related to God, to make atonement and propitiation for the people’s sins. AMP

My question to you – “Can you see four Persons in the Godhead rather than three Persons in the Trinity?”

Jesus can use the Name “I AM” because in the Book of Genesis God refers to Himself as “us” – Genesis 1:26, 3:22, 11:7. I have listed some of His “I AM’s” as found in the New Testiment. Jesus uses the Name for Deity as “I AM” in His own Testimony. Do you realize the following text is Jesus’ Testimony?

John 8:23-24 He said to them, You are from below; I am from above {I live in My Father’s ETERNAL Kingdom in the Third Heaven}. You are of this world (of this earthly order); I am not of this world. 24 That is why I told you that you will die in (under the curse of) your sins; for if you do not believe that I am He [Whom I claim to be — if you do not adhere to, trust in, and rely on Me], you will die in your sins. AMP

John 6:35 Jesus replied, I am the Bread of Life. He who comes to Me will never be hungry, and he who believes in and cleaves to and trusts in and relies on Me will never thirst anymore (at any time) {for I am also the Living Water – John 4:13-14}. AMP

John 8:12 Once more Jesus addressed the crowd. He said, I am the Light of the world. He who follows Me will not be walking in the dark, but will have the Light which is {ETERNAL} Life {1 John 1:2}. AMP

John 10:7 So Jesus said again, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, that I Myself am the Door for the sheep. AMP

John 10:11 I am the Good Shepherd. AMP

John 11:25 Jesus said to her, I am [Myself] the Resurrection and the Life. Whoever believes in (adheres to, trusts in, and relies on) Me, although he may die, yet he shall live; AMP

John 14:6 Jesus said to him, I am the Way and {I AM} the Truth and {I AM} the Life; no one comes to the Father except by (through) Me. AMP

John 15:1 I AM the True Vine, and My Father is the Vinedresser. AMP

John 8:58-59 Jesus replied, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, before Abraham was born, I AM.  [Ex 3:14.] 59 So they took up stones to throw at Him, but Jesus, by mixing with the crowd, concealed Himself and went out of the temple [enclosure]. AMP

John 18:4-5 Then Jesus, knowing all that was about to befall Him, went out to them and said, Whom are you seeking? [Whom do you want?] 5 They answered Him, Jesus the Nazarene. Jesus said to them, I am He. Judas, who was betraying Him, was also standing with them. AMP

There are more Old Testament and New Testament references for Jesus being Devine AND human. Research them! DO NOT SHORTCHANGE HIM!!!

In the Book of Revelation Jesus continues to make His deity part of His Testimony:

Revelation 1:2 {John} Who has testified to and vouched for all that he saw [in his visions], the word of God {Jesus} and the testimony of Jesus Christ. AMP

 

PART 7 – Some of The ETERNAL Titles of Jesus Christ As Deity “I AM” That Are Part of His Own Testimony:

In PART 7, Jesus claims to be “I AM” using certain Titles as ETERNALLY being God. These attributes are as applicable “TODAY” as they have been for ALL ETERNITY! Jesus gives His Testimony as “I am” for BOTH Deity and Man as being the “Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last” in BOTH the New Testament and the Old Testament:

Revelation 1:8 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, says the Lord God {Jesus Christ}, He Who is and Who was and Who is to come, the Almighty (the {human} Ruler of all). AMP

Isaiah 9:6 For to us a Child {Jesus} is born, to us a Son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder, and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father [of Eternity], Prince of Peace.  [Isa 25:1; 40:9-11; Matt 28:18; Luke 2:11.] AMP

Revelation 1:11 {Jesus speaking} Saying, I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last. Write promptly what you see (your vision) in a book and send it to the seven churches which are in Asia — to Ephesus and to Smyrna and to Pergamum and to Thyatira and to Sardis and to Philadelphia and to Laodicea. AMP

Revelation 1:17-18 When I {John}saw Him {Jesus}, I fell at His feet as if dead. But He laid His right hand on me and said, Do not be afraid! I am the First and the Last, [Isa 44:6.] 18 And {Jesus as God the Son of Man calls Himself} the Ever-living One [I am living in the eternity of the eternities {as is His claim as ETERNALLY being God/Man}]. I died, but see, I am alive forevermore; and I possess keys of death and Hades (the realm of the dead) {as Man}. AMP

Revelation 22:13 {Jesus said} I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last (the Before all and the End of all).  [Isa 44:6; 48:12.] AMP

Isaiah 41:4 {Jesus speaking} Who has prepared and done this, calling forth and guiding the destinies of the generations [of the nations] from the beginning? I, the Lord — the first [existing {in the ERA} before history began] and with the last [an ever-present, unchanging God] — I am He. AMP

Isaiah 43:10 You are My witnesses, says the Lord, and My servant whom I have chosen, that you may know Me, believe Me and remain steadfast to Me, and understand that I am He. Before Me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after Me. AMP

Isaiah 44:6 Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts: I am the First and I am the Last; besides Me there is no God.  [Rev 1:17; 2:8; 22:13.] AMP

Isaiah 48:12 {Jesus as God the Son of Man speaking} Listen to Me, O Jacob, and Israel, My called [ones]: I am He; I am the First, I also am the Last.  [Isa 41:4.] AMP

Can YOU better understand and know Jesus Christ as being ETERNALLY God/Man?

 

CONCLUSION:

In the ERA some 13+ billion years before creation and time began, I discuss ETERNITY and the four Persons of the Godhead Who lives there. I again shared the Scriptures that declare Jesus as FULLY and ETERNALLY being God/Man.

I shared the Scriptures that take us back to this ERA, and we have a glimpse of the relationship of the Father and the Son. Jesus gives us His Testimony as Deity by using the SAME Name as His Father – I AM. I close His Testimonies with Him using “I AM” as the “Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and thee End, the First and the Last.” This is the BEST knowledge of God that I have at the present! IF you know some additional information about this ERA, please let me know!

AMEN & AMEN!
