Do believers really understand WHAT Jesus is? He WAS the Word of God before He became flesh. He was the WORDS Father Yah spoke to form creation. Jesus came to be when Yah SPOKE, therefore, giving Jesus authority over creation before His blood was shed. Before the written word. That’s why Scripture says He was the firstborn of creation. His preeminence comes from being God’s Voice.
There is an awesomeness of that knowledge most refuse to comprehend or take to heart.
