For some it is hard to trust anything or anyone, but there is one who we can put our full trust and faith in THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. How can we not put our confidence in our Saviour who has always been, even before the earth was created! Although Jesus was born in the earth He was with God the Father in heaven before creation (John 17:1-5) These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.
Jesus was God in the flesh and walked among men, and said He and His Father are one, and if you have seen Him then you have seen the Father (John 10:30). Therefore all things were created by Him and for Him. Everything exists because of Him, who is the image of God (Colossians 1:14-20) In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.
In the first chapter of John we see John the baptist who was the forerunner of Jesus bearing witness that Jesus is the light of the world, and was with God in the beginning! (John 1:1-13) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
4 thoughts on “Jesus our Saviour who was before the earth was created”
John 17:1-5 does not say that Jesus already existed. Before the earth was created he was there. Also he was not born in the earth, but got only born on the earth coming out of the womb of Miriam (Mary/Maria) (some 2 millennia ago) The text from John refers to Jesus, like you and all others being written in the Book of life, and further more Jesus spoken off in the Garden of Eden as the promised one of God.
