I hurried into the local 210-060 Dumps department store to grab1 some last minute Exampdfview Exampdfview Chirsmas gifts. I 300-101 Dumps looked at all the people 210-060 Dumps and grumbled2 Cisco 300-070 dumps to myself. I would be Examdumpsview in here forever and I Cisco 300-070 dumps just had so much to do. Chirsmas was beginning to become such Cisco 300-070 dumps a drag. I kinda wished that 300-101 Dumps I could just sleep 300-101 Dumps through Chirsmas. But 300-070 exam questions 300-070 exam questions I hurried the best I 300-070 pdf could 300-070 exam questions through all the Examdumpsview people to the toy 210-060 Dumps department. Once again Cisco 300-070 dumps Exampdfview I kind of mumbled3 to myself at the prices of all these toys, and wondered if the grandkids would even play whit4 them. I found myself in the doll aisle5. Out of the corner of my eye Exampdfview I saw a little boy about 300-070 exam dumps 5 300-070 exam questions holding 300-070 exam dumps a lovely doll.He 300-070 exam dumps kept touching6 her hair and Exampdfview he held her 300-070 pdf so 300-070 exam dumps gently. I could not seem to help myself. I just kept loking over at the little boy and wondered 210-060 Dumps who the 210-060 Dumps doll was for. I watched him turn to a woman and he called his Examdumpsview aunt by name and said, Examdumpsview “Are you sure I don’t have enough money?” She Cisco 300-070 dumps replied a bit 300-070 exam dumps impatiently, “You know that you 300-070 exam dumps don’t have enough money for it.” The aunt told the little 300-070 pdf boy not 300-070 exam questions to go anywhere that she had to go and get some other things and Exampdfview would Examdumpsview be back in a few minutes. And then she left the aisle. The boy continued to hold the doll. After a bit I asked the boy who the doll Exampdfview was 300-070 exam dumps Exampdfview 210-060 Dumps for. He said, “It is 300-070 exam questions the doll my sister wanted so badly for Chirsmas. 300-070 exam questions She just knew that Santa would bring it. “I told him 300-070 exam questions that maybe Santa 300-070 exam dumps was going to bring it . He said, Cisco 300-070 dumps “No, Santa can’t go where my sister is…. I have to give 300-070 exam dumps the Exampdfview doll to my 210-060 Dumps Mama to take to her. “I asked him where his siter was. He looked at me with Examdumpsview the saddest eyes and said, “She was gone to be with Jesus.

My Daddy says Exampdfview Exampdfview that Mamma is going to 300-101 Dumps have to go be Cisco 300-070 dumps with 210-060 Dumps her.” My heart nearly stopped beating. Then the boy looked at 210-060 Dumps me again and said, “I told 300-070 pdf my Daddy to tell my Mama not to go yet. I told him to 300-101 Dumps tell her to wait till Exampdfview I got back from 300-070 exam dumps 300-070 exam questions the store.” Then he asked me if i Cisco 300-070 dumps wanted to see his picture. I told him I’d love to. He pulled out some picture he’d had taken at the 210-060 Dumps front of the store. He said, “I 300-101 Dumps want my Mama to 300-070 exam dumps take this Examdumpsview 300-070 exam dumps with her so the dosen’t ever forget me. 300-070 exam questions I 210-060 Dumps love 300-070 exam questions my Mama so very much and I wish she dind not 300-070 pdf have to leave me.But Daddy says she will need 300-101 Dumps to be with my sister.” 300-070 pdf I saw that 300-101 Dumps the little boy had lowered his head and had grown so qiuet. Examdumpsview 300-070 exam questions While he was not looking I Examdumpsview reached into my purse and pilled out a handful of bills. I asked 300-070 pdf the little boy, 210-060 Dumps “Shall we count that miney one more time?” He grew excited and said, “Yes,I just know it 300-070 pdf has to be enough.” So I slipped my money 300-070 exam dumps in with his and we began to count it . Of course Examdumpsview it was plenty for the doll. He softly said, “Thank you Jesus for giving me enough money.” Then the boy said, “I 210-060 Dumps just Examdumpsview asked Jesus to give me enough Exampdfview money to buy this doll so Mama can take it with her to give my sister. And he heard my prayer. I wanted 300-070 exam questions to ask Cisco 300-070 dumps him give for enough to buy my Mama a 300-070 pdf white rose, but I didn’t ask him, but he gave me Examdumpsview enough to buy the doll and a 300-101 Dumps rose for my Mama. She loves white 300-101 Dumps rose so Cisco 300-070 dumps Exampdfview much. “In a few minutes the aunt Examdumpsview came back and I wheeled my cart away. I could not keep from thinking about the little boy as Cisco 300-070 dumps I finished my shoppong in a ttally different spirit 300-101 Dumps than when I had started. And I kept remembering a story I 300-070 exam questions 300-070 exam questions had seen in 300-070 pdf the newspaper several days earlier about a drunk driver Exampdfview 300-101 Dumps hitting a car and killing7 a Examdumpsview little girl and the Mother was in serious condition. The family was deciding 210-060 Dumps 300-101 Dumps on whether to remove the life support. Now surely this little 300-070 pdf boy did Exampdfview not belong with Cisco 300-070 dumps that story.Two 300-101 Dumps days later I read in the 210-060 Dumps paper where the family had disconnected the life Cisco 300-070 dumps Cisco 300-070 dumps support and 300-070 exam dumps the young 210-060 Dumps woman had died. I could not forget the little boy and just kept wondering Cisco 300-070 dumps Examdumpsview if the two were somehow connected. 300-101 Dumps Later that day, I could 300-070 exam dumps not 300-070 pdf help myself and I went out and bought aome white roses and 300-101 Dumps took them to the funeral 300-070 pdf home where the yough woman was .And Examdumpsview 300-070 exam questions there she Cisco 300-070 dumps was holding a lovely white 300-070 pdf rose, the beautiful doll, and 300-070 exam dumps the picture of the little boy in the store. I left 300-070 pdf there in tears, thier life changed forever. The love 300-070 pdf that little boy had for his little sisiter and his mother was overwhel. And in a split8 second a drunk driver had ripped9 the life of that little boy to pieces.

I was recently involved in a back and forth discussion of whether or not Christ existed before His birth? This is from people whom I consider part of the body of Christ and yet they have somehow taken a vastly different viewpoint from what I learned from the scriptures.

So I just wanted to answer the question from my own understanding of the word God on this subject.

I thought you might find it interesting as well.

Here are the scriptures and my thoughts on their, to me, plain meaning.

(Gen 1:26 KJV)  And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

The word “God” is translated from the Hebrew word “Elohiym” which is the plural form of Eloaah which refers to God or diety.

So who is included in the “us and our” reference? Those two words are not present in the Hebrew but are implied by the plural nature of the word Elohiym.

So who else was with God here?

(Joh 1:1 KJV)  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

The “Word” here is translated from the Greek word “Logos” which in this usage should be thought of as speaker or spokesman of God. Later in this chapter, we see that this “Word or Logos” was made flesh and dwelt among us;

(Joh 1:14 KJV)  And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

What do the scriptures say about Jesus?

(Mat 1:23 KJV)  Behold, a virgin shall be with child and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

(Isa 7:14 ESV)  Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

The Hebrew Immanuel means simply God with us.

But what other instances are there indicating Christ’s pre-existence with God the Father?

(Col 1:16 KJV)  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: (speaking of Jesus Christ)

Notice the use of by and for Him. Put together like this shows that He actually was the creator and that all these things were made by and for Him under the direction of the Sovereign God(God the Father).

That would make the pre-existing Christ the Creator God of the Old Testament. Which would then make the following scripture clearer;

(Joh 5:37 KJV)  And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.

But we know that the Creator God was seen and heard in the Old Testament.

What does Christ say of Himself?

(Joh 8:58 KJV)  Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.

Eph 3:9  And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: 

So when we see a passage like below:

(Deu 4:35 KJV)  Unto thee it was shewed, that thou mightest know that the LORD he is God; there is none else beside him.

We can understand it more clearly by simply looking at the underlying Hebrew words for LORD and God.

The LORD is translated from the word “yehovah” the eternal or the Jewish national name for God. This is the God they knew, the creator God who made Himself available to them. They knew the God being who later became Christ but they did not interact with the God being who became God the Father at the birth of Christ.

While the word God comes from the word Elohiym the plural word used for God. Perhaps the best way to explain it is the God family. The word Elohiym can be used in that way a singular group with many members at this time only two. The Sovereign God and at that time His Spokesman, the Logos.

Looking at these scriptures as they stand it is a simple matter to understand the truth of what is being said.

That being said in today’s environment people are twisting these plain simple scriptural statements and making them say something entirely different. I am very saddened by what I see. This is the simplicity which is Christ Jesus.

2Co_1:12  For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward.

Understanding the word of God should be a simple thing if we have God’s Holy Spirit residing in us. It should not require the fleshly wisdom of the world to understand.

2Co_11:3  But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.

Brethren our minds can be corrupted from the simplicity of Christ is we allow it to happen.

Pray always for Clarity brethren.
