The Christmas Prologue 3: No beginning and no end.
John 1:2 “He was with God in the beginning.”
Jesus was there before it all began. He has no beginning. He is outside of time.
Before all time there was the WORD. He is pre-existent before anything was existent.
He enters the beginning. Because of this He will be there at the end.
When the end ends, He will still be there. He has no end.
He has seen it all. He has seen all that you hold dear.
We cannot contain Him to a time and a nation; to a scene; to a manger. We cannot hold onto Him. He is beyond our grasp. We cannot understand all there is to know about Him. He is beyond our capability to think.
Jesus did not begin 2,000 years ago in a manger, no crying he makes. He is before anything ever happened.
Now take your life, your short life, the years have gone by already so very quick and yet you have many unanswered questions, you have faced big dilemmas.
There have been no accidents in your life, neither your birth nor your death when it happens, nor anything in between. He knows the beginning and the end for each one of us and everything in between.
We can invite Jesus into our existence. But there is a greater invitation than that. An invitation for us to live our lives in His pre-existence.
You might not know why some things have happened or why they haven’t. But He knows.
God has and will always know what, why, when, where, how things are going in your life.
We need to trust in His pre-existence. Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever.
You may have many questions about your future. What does it hold? Will I cope?
Being outside of time He is already in your tomorrow, He is there waiting for you and He is here now with you.
This is enormous comfort. You will never be alone.
You will never have to wait for Him to catch you up. He is not following you.
Wherever you are, He is.
