Soul Food: Implication that the Son of God is Eternal

KCK-StainedGlass-BlogArtThe Word of God constantly and consistently implies the preexistence and eternity of the Lord Jesus Christ. Among the obvious proofs of this fact several may be noted:

  • The works of creation are ascribed to Christ (John 1:3; Col. 1:16; Heb. 1:10)
  • The Angel of Jehovah whose appearance is often recorded in the Old Testament is none other than the lord Jesus Christ. Though He appears at times as an angel or even a man, He bears the unmistakable marks of deity. He appeared to Hagar (Gen. 16:7), to Abraham (Gen. 31:11-13; 32:24-32), to Moses ( Exod. 3:2,14), to Joshua ( Josh. 5:13-14), and to Manoah ( Judges 13:19-22). He it is who fights for, and defends, His own ( 2 Kings 19:35; 1 Chron. 21:15-16; Ps. 34:7; Zech. 14:1-4).
  • The titles of the Lord Jesus Christ indicate His eternal being. He is precisely what His names imply. He is “The Son of God,” “The Only Begotten Son,” “The First and the Last,” “The Alpha and Omega,” “The Lord,” “Lord of All,” “Lord of Glory,” “The Christ,” “Wonderful Counselor,” “The Mighty God,” “The Father of Eternity,” “God,” “God With Us,” “Our Great God,” and “God Blessed Forever.” These titles relate Him to the Old Testament revelation of Jehovah-God (compare Matt. 1:23 with Isa. 7:14; Matt. 4:7 with Deut. 6:16; Mark 5:19 with Ps. 66:16 and Matt. 22:42-45 with Ps. 110:1). The New Testament names for the Son of God are associated with titles of the Father and the Spirit as being equal with them ( Matt. 28:19; John 14:1; 17:3; Acts 2:38; 1 Cor. 1:3; 2 Cor. 13:14; Eph. 6:23; Rev. 20:6; 22:3), and He is explicitly called God ( John 1:1; Rom. 9:5; Titus 2:13; Heb. 1:8).
