In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
“Let them become.” And so they came into being. The Word of Command lived alongside the Rarest and Best, for the Word too was God Himself.
It is not possible for a powerful command to come without some great person giving it. Messengers and ambassadors, party secretaries and generals travel swiftly with the decrees of the Chairman or President. The letter, the email, the voice of authority is the very voice of the person who first spoke it. It is as though they are the same.
Not only does the Word live in God’s presence; but, because He came down, there was a beginning.
All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.
No gravity except by Him; no gelogical eras, no sequence of winter and summer, no soil formed from the rocks and by weather, no plant that grows from the seed, no birth of animate being, no consequence of sin; nothing whatever can either be or happen except by the ‘seed-cause’ of the Word.
In him was life, and the life was the life of men,
As the pure light of the rising sun chases away the dark shadows from the hills, turns the fields green and makes the waters sparkle, so Yeshu Mashiga ignites a light that never dies.
His light is the dawn of a new kind of day, the start of a new abundant life for mankind.
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
What an excellent sun! This sun does not set, but shines on and on. There is no evening darkness creeping back slowly from dark corners to take its brightness prisoner, but the world stays lit up in a flood of glorious light.
What of darkness meanwhile? It can only make hide-aways in black robbers’ dens as it were, and finds no way to steal forth and overpower the good and true light.
