In the Beginning by Fenny West

In the Beginning

 

In the beginning He was.

Before the Beginning He was

At the end He will be

And after the end

He will continue to be

Because He has no Beginning

And has no end.

 

 

He initiated all things

Brought all things into being.

All things depend on Him

But He depends on nothing

Nothing was without Him

Nothing will be without Him

 

All things answer to Him

Because He is the King of Kings

All Lords are subject to Him

Because He is the Lord of Lords

Principalities and powers are subject to Him

Because He is the head of all principalities and powers

All peoples are subject to Him

Because He created all- great and small.

Every knee shall bow to Him

And every tongue shall confess Him

As Lord to the glory of the Father.

 

, 5   And now, O Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was.

 24  “Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am, that they may behold My glory which You have given Me; for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.

 

John17:5,24,

2     in hope of eternal life which God, who cannot lie, promised before time began,

Tit1:2,

9     who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began,

2 Tim.1:9

1  In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Gen.1:1

3          who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,

Heb1:3

15   He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.

16   For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.

17   And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.

Col1:15-17

1     In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

2     He was in the beginning with God.

3     All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.

4     In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.

John1:1-4

Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.John8:58

8     “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End,” says the Lord, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”Rev1:8

The created world is but a small parenthesis in eternity

Sir Thomas Browne
