The Word became Flesh and made His dwelling among us


Everyone believes something about God even that there isn’t a God. Of the three major religions, all have a holy book that is supposed to reveal what God wants us to know about Himself, ourselves and life and life thereafter. As a believer in Jehovah, I believe what He conveys about Himself through His Word. While I readily admit that I cannot present the truth of the trinity in a manner in which many may believe, I believe in one God expressed in three persons, God, The Father, God, The Son, and God, The Holy Spirit. I also believe in Galatians 3:11 which says “…the righteous will live by faith.”

In terms of my faith about Jesus, I simply believe Jesus is God. This has been the focal point of the past few posts that look into John 1. The Apostle John, who walked with Jesus, heard what Jesus told him and witnessed what Jesus did, tells us that Jesus is God.  You have to choose for yourself, but know this is what God says “We accept human testimony, but God’s testimony is greater because it is the testimony of God, which he has given about his Son. 10 Whoever believes in the Son of God accepts this testimony. Whoever does not believe God has made him out to be a liar, because they have not believed the testimony God has given about his Son. 11 And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.” 1 John 5:9-11

That being said, here is some testimony about The Word became Flesh and made His dwelling among us.

John 1:14
14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

(link for verses below)

Galatians 4:4
But when the set time had fully come,(A) God sent his Son,(B) born of a woman,(C) born under the law,(D)

Philippians 2:7
rather, he made himself nothing(A) by taking the very nature of a servant,(B) being made in human likeness.(C)

Philippians 2:8
And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself
by becoming obedient to death(A)— even death on a cross!(B)

1 Timothy 3:16
16 Beyond all question, the mystery(A) from which true godliness(B) springs is great:
He appeared in the flesh,(C)
was vindicated by the Spirit,
was seen by angels,
was preached among the nations,(D)
was believed on in the world,
was taken up in glory.(E)

Hebrews 2:14
14 Since the children have flesh and blood,(A) he too shared in their humanity(B) so that by his death he might break the power(C) of him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil(D)

1 John 1:1-2
1 That which was from the beginning,(A) which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes,(B) which we have looked at and our hands have touched(C)—this we proclaim concerning the Word of life. The life appeared;(A) we have seen it and testify to it,(B) and we proclaim to you the eternal life,(C) which was with the Father and has appeared to us.

1 John 4:2
This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh(A) is from God,(B)

The ball is in your court as to whether you will believe the testimony God has provided about Jesus. I will conclude with Acts 10:43 which says, “All the prophets testify about him that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name.” The Word became Flesh and made His dwelling among us to offer us the forgiveness of our sins that we would be able to have fellowship with God relating to Him as He originally purposed.
