The Lord Jesus lived before He was born. The Lord Jesus is God. He lived before His birth here on earth around 6 or 4 BCE.
John the Baptist around 26 AD spoke about the pre-existence of the Lord Jesus long before His very birth from Blessed Mary, a woman who but was ready to always do the will of God.
She gave birth to the pre-existing Lord Jesus whom prophets already spoke about.
John the Baptist cried out, saying, something like this: “This is the one, the Lord, the Saviour the Messiah, I was talking about.”
This is a serious revelation. John knew who the Lord Jesus is and that he confirms later the pre-existence of the Lord Jesus.
There was a six-month difference in birth between the Lord Jesus and John.
John was born first then followed the Lord Jesus six months later.
But hear what again John says: “The Lord Jesus is greater than I am, because the Lord Jesus existed before I was born.”
Long before John ever lived, the Lord Jesus was.
John spoke about him.
He cried out: “This is the one I was talking about when I said, He comes after me, but he is greater than I am, because he existed before I was born.”
The letter to the Hebrews confirms this by saying: “… Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” Hebrews 13:8 (New King James Version)
The Lord Jesus is the same Lord and God the Son in season and out of season.
Before the beginning, He was after the beginning, He is and at the end of all things He will be the same.
Only God can outlive time, history and pre-exist anything.
Remember that God created all things through Jesus and without Him, God created nothing.
So the Lord Jesus is above history.
Many people fall into the trap of blasphemy because they disrespect God by undermining the lordship of Jesus Christ by taking Him to be a mere human being or like any other man of God or prophet.
This is sad.
Do you know that the Lord Jesus is feared by the Satanic world?
At His holy name, every demonic spirit and Satan confesses the lordship of Jesus and bow in reverence before Him.
Recall, 2,000 demons did worship the Lord Jesus here within the demoniac.
See how reverential they were. Demons know about the Lord Jesus better than many human beings.
They even revealed the deity of the Lord Jesus.
Demons were good angels before; they knew who the Lord Jesus was that time.
They just confessed out aloud who He was. Demons then respected Him; worshipped Him before in the man.
Look at what demons are saying: “When he saw Jesus from afar, he ran and worshiped Him. And he cried out with a loud voice and said, what have I to do with you, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I implore you by God that you do not torment me.” Mark 5:6-7 (New King James Version)
It is very embarrassing to note that demons and Satan know the Lord Jesus better than ordinary humans.
If demons know the Lord Jesus better than human beings, it means that human beings who do not know Jesus are worse off than demons.
That is why ignoring the Lord Jesus is eternal death and hell fire bound.
Jesus came to seek and save human beings but they have denied Him.
Oh Lord God, help me now to obey and know the Lord Jesus better than all demons, to preach Him to the world. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
God bless your day as you seek and save the lost and as you pray for the revelation of Jesus as Christ in you.
