Let’s take a better look at what John the Apostle was saying by looking elsewhere in the Bible.
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
Since God the Father was the only Being existent alone for eternity, and Jesus is called the Word of God (see Rev 19:13) “And he (Jesus) was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called “The Word of God.”. Then “In the beginning” is referring to the beginning of the creation of god the Father (since God was alone).
Since John the Apostle told us, Jesus was with God in the beginning of the creation, then God the Father chose to create Jesus as the first spirit of light. Now notice that God the Father is called “the Father of lights” in James 1:17. Now add Luke’s comment in chapter 16, verse 8 about us being “the children of light”, and you can begin to see why the New Testament tells us that God created all things by Jesus (see 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, John’s comments in John 1:1-5 are simply saying, In the beginning of God the Father’s creation, God created Jesus (the light), and Jesus was with God the Father, and Jesus was God (the Son), and not God the Father, because Jesus did not create Himself, but did create all of us, which is what is told us in Ephesians 3:9 that God the Father created all things by having Jesus create all things after He was created. This is exactly how the account of the creation describes it.
First Jesus is created as the light, then Jesus takes over and creates everything else using the poser God the Father gave Jesus the Son of God, who is the first born of many spirits of light — known as the children of light. This is why the Bible seems to be telling us that God the Father created us, and then Jesus created us. This is why our Christian Forefathers made the error of believing that Jesus and God the Father were the same being, which is not true. It is an error making these two beings, God the Father and Jesus, the same person.
There is so much evidence in the Bible contrary to this idea. By making Jesus the same person as His creator, Rome has achieved making the entire world commit a sin that has been separating us from God for the past thousand years. Thus, disengaging the human race from using the power of God. Look at John 1:29
“Behold the Lamb of God, which takes away the sin of the world.”
Now add 1 John 5:16 to your understanding:
“If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it.”
If Jesus died for all our sins, then how come the Apostle John is telling us not to pray for forgiveness when a person commits the sin Jesus did not die for? The idea that there is an unforgivable sin that can be committed is conveyed by other scriptures:
“Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit shall not be forgiven unto men. …whosoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come..” Matthew 12:31-32
“If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it.” 1 John 5:16
In conclusion: God the Father created Jesus as the light of this world prior to the earth being created, which was created as a prison to hold Lucifer and his fallen angels after they fought against Michael and his angels(see Rev 12:7-9). Simple logic shows us that Lucifer (satan) contended with Michael the Archangel, and not with God the Father. This proves that the light God the Father created on the first day of creation was named Michael and curiously enough, the name Michael is a Hebrew sentence with meaning.
Michael means the One who is exactly like God the Father. Thus proving that Michael is the light, the spirit whom is later born into the body of a male human being named Jesus.
The most important thing to remember is the position of the quantity we call Time varies from past eternity (prior to the creation of earth) to present eternity, which includes all the time the earth supports life, to future eternity that will only occur after all life is gone from the earth and prior to life being re-established back on earth at the resurrection to life.
These variations of Time give us the conditions of isolating and naming God’s only begotten Son. What all this means is, Jesus’ name prior to the earth being created was Michael, His name before His birth was “Melchizedek” and the “God of Israel”.
Michael’s name when He was born was Jesus and His names after His death on the cross are the ‘Comforter’, ‘Holy Spirit’, and the ‘Word of God’, “your Conscience”, the “Spirit of truth”, the “Spirit of Prophecy”, and the “Angel (Spirit) of God”, and the angel in the book of Revelation talking throughout the book with John the Apostle”.
