John 1:1, is probably one of the most debated, and misunderstood Scripture in the whole Bible.
And because the truth of John 1:1 is so misunderstood, this misunderstanding has become a leading deception, deceiving most of Christianity into believing in a false Triune God, and a false pre-existing Jesus, who is not the true Christ, or the real Messiah and Son of Man, or the Only Begotten Son of The One True Yahweh Father and creator GOD.
This is a false Gospel saying GOD gave His own life on the cross, and denying GOD the Father as GOD alone, while denying the Father and the Christ as written in 1 John 2:22.
Let's have a look at John 1:1, with an open mind and heart, while praying for the truth, in hope to discover the truth.
In The Greek translation of John 1:1, we read:
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Firstly, the first obvious problem in the translation above, is how the translators have added in a capital "W" which deceives people into believing the word of GOD here is a second person.
Notice below how the same Greek word for (Logos Λόγος word), in countless verses like John 17:17 is never in CAPITALS, except in John 1:1, therefore deceiving people into believing the false CAPITAL translation of (Word) is a second person.
And the Jehovah Witnesses have their own translation saying:
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was (a) God.
And according to most of Christianity, including the Jehovah Witnesses, they believe, say and teach John 1:1 is about Jesus, as the Word, who is GOD, or a GOD.
But here are some interesting facts that prove Jesus is not in John 1:1.
Notice what John 1:1 does NOT say:
In the beginning was the SON, and the SON was with God, and the SON was God.
We also do NOT read: In the beginning was Jesus, and Jesus was with God, and Jesus was God.
We also do NOT read: In the beginning was Christ, and Christ was with God, and Christ was God.
In fact, Christ never means: I am GOD.
Christ never means: I am Yahweh.
Christ simply means: Anointed One; the Messiah, the Christ.
Christos: the Anointed One, Messiah, Christ
Original Word: Χριστός, οῦ, ὁPart of Speech: Noun, MasculineTransliteration: Christos Phonetic Spelling: (khris-tos') Definition: the Anointed One, Messiah, ChristUsage: Anointed One; the Messiah, the Christ.
Notice if Christ were GOD, then as Jesus Christ is the Anointed One (OF GOD), and as most believe Jesus is GOD, that would simply mean GOD Anointed HIMSELF, and GAVE HIMSELF!
And that all contradicts what we read and are told in John 3:16, which says GOD GAVE His Begotten Son, and NOT HIMSELF.
And that's what makes a false Gospel saying what most of Christianity believe in, that GOD GAVE Himself which is absolutely nonsense, and therefore denies what the Father and the SON truly did for the world, because GOD so love the world, that He truly did give His only Begotten Son not to condemn us but to save us John 3:16.
But wait, there is more!
In the old Testament, the word of GOD is always Yahweh GOD alone.
GOD's (word), is His statement, speech, divine utterance, plan, power, authority of GOD expressing Yahweh’s thoughts, action, message, purpose and will, spoken by the breath of Yahweh’s mouth, which is why John tells us: and the word was with God, and the word was God, as we are told in Psalm 33:6:
By Yahweh’s (word,) the heavens were made; all their army by the breath of his mouth. World English Bible.
And the word of GOD in the old Testament is never a second person, until Jesus is Begotten and born in John 1:14.
And notice what we read here in John 1:14:
Berean Literal Bible
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us. And we beheld His glory, a glory as of an only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.
Did you see that: And the 👉Word👈 became flesh.
So the Word of GOD tells us how, GOD's 👉Word👈became flesh.
Notice what we do NOT read: And 👉GOD👈became flesh!
If Jesus were GOD, we would simply read And 👉GOD became flesh!👈
Also notice how we do NOT read what the Jehovah Witnesses say, believe and teach that their own translation says Jesus is (a) God: who was Michael the Archangel.
But instead we read how: the Word OF GOD became flesh, and NOT GOD Himself becoming flesh, or that Michael the Archangel became flesh.
And if we turn the page to Luke 1:35, we see how the word of GOD was spoken through: the angel answering, said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore also the Holy One being born will be called the Son of God.
Notice how we read Jesus is 👉(The SON of GOD),👈 and NOT GOD the SON!
So, we learn here, The word OF GOD was GOD's (word), statement, speech, divine utterance, plan, power Luke 1:35, authority of GOD expressing Yahweh’s thoughts, action, message, purpose and will, spoken through the Angel.
John 1:1 is simply telling us: In the beginning was the word: meaning GOD's (word), statement, speech, divine utterance, plan, power, authority of GOD expressing Yahweh’s thoughts, action, message, purpose and will, spoken by the breath of Yahweh’s mouth.
And John must have be referring to Genesis 1 saying: 3 And God 👉said,👈 “Let there be light,” and there was light. 4 And God saw that the light was good, and He separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light “day,” and the darkness He called “night.”
So, I hope now you agree how we have discovered how John 1:1 is NOT about Jesus, until we get to John 1:14, where Jesus is Begotten and Born, as the visible, and physical Word OF GOD.
Note again, how Jesus is NOT called ''GOD the Word'', but The Word OF GOD, Revelation 19:13.
Jesus is The Word OF GOD, simply because Jesus speaks GOD's words, proving how Jesus is NOT GOD Himself.
But please wait, as I have saved the best until last.
As we know, most of Christianity say, believe and teach Jesus is GOD, who WAS BESIDE his (Father GOD), BEFORE Jesus was Begotten.
And they are not understanding if Jesus is GOD who is WITH His GOD, then thats TWO GODS side by side.
And the Jehovah witnesses say, believe and teach Jesus is (a) GOD, who WAS BESIDE his (Father GOD), BEFORE Jesus was Begotten.
But notice how Jesus being BESIDE GOD, BEFORE Jesus was Begotten, CONTRADICTS what GOD tells us throughout the Old Testament like we read in many verses like Deuteronomy 32:39
World English Bible
“See now that I myself am he. There is 👉 (no god) 👈 with me. I kill and I make alive. I wound and I heal. There is no one who can deliver out of my hand.
Did you see that?
There is (no god) with me.
For who is God, 👉except Yahweh? 👈Who is a rock, besides our God,
We clearly and plainly read and see how the word of GOD tells us how there was NO ONE TRUE GOD, or a little God, who was BESIDE Yahweh GOD, or WITH GOD, before Jesus was Begotten.
And yet most of Christianity CONTRADICT the word of GOD by saying John 1:1 is about Jesus who was WITH and BESIDE GOD, before Jesus was BORN as flesh.
And there is more!
When we understand the simple truth, we understand WHY GOD tells us countless times how He ALONE created the genesis creation (BY HIMSELF)!
Isaiah 44:24 World English Bible
Yahweh, your Redeemer, and he who formed you from the womb says: “I am Yahweh, who makes all things; 👉who alone 👈stretches out the heavens; who spreads out the earth 👉by myself;👈
The SHOCKING truth is:
The simple Biblical facts reveal the simple truth, of how John 1:1 is referring to Yahweh in Genesis 1, who is the ONE TRUE GOD and Father of creation alone by Himself, which is why John tells us: In the beginning (Genesis Creation) was the Word, (The word of GOD), Genesis 1:3, And 👉 God said.👈 👉and the word was with God, and the word was God, John 1:1.
As we sadly see how most of Christianity have been deceived with a false PRE-EXISTING Christ, as written in Revelation 12:9.
And the great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.
Let us humble ourselves, and come to the side of truth by believing in the truth of GOD's, (WORD), and not mans teachings, except the One True MAN and Christ Jesus, who was Begotten as the WORD OF GOD, John 1:14, Revelation 19:13.
And answering He (Jesus) said, "Have you not read that the One (The One TRUE Father and GOD alone) 👉having created from the beginning 👈 Genesis 1: 'made them male and female,' Matthew 19:4.
