Omnipotent God
I believe that this explanation of the Word becoming flesh is an especially powerful and poetic way to describe Jesus.  When I hear this, I think about God's words coming into being as a person: full of perfection, grace, humility, and purpose.  This also reminds me that Jesus present at Creation and reminds me of the We discussed in Genesis.  Furthermore, I believe that God understood the difficulties that humans would have attempting to comprehend what they could not see.  In God's infinite wisdom, he sent us His character in the flesh to serve as a living example.  Remember, God spoke to the people and they still made an image; God provided a way out of Egypt, but the people still did not believe.  God understands that humans are limited in their understanding of things that are not tangible.

The interpretation of John 1:1 depends on your fundamental theology whether Jesus existed before He was born as Jesus 2000 years ago or not. If your paradigm is preexistence then you will read John 1:1 as: In the beginning was the WORD (meaning Jesus), and the WORD (meaning Jesus) was with God, and the WORD (meaning Jesus) was God. This falls in line with traditional Roman Catholic Trinitarian (mystery) teaching.

 

But that is not what the Bible says. It says: “In the beginning was the WORD.” First of all let’s define “beginning.” I believe it to mean from all eternity and throughout Old Testament time. Secondly, we need to ask: Who’s WORD was in the beginning? My answer: It was the WORD of God. So now, John 1:1 reads: “In the beginning was the WORD (of God), and the WORD (of God) was with God, and the WORD (of God) was God.”  For a better understanding we can personify John 1:1 to read: In the beginning is my word, and my word is with me, and my word is me. In other words, in the beginning was ONE God, Yahweh Elohim and (it) His WORD. It was through (it) His WORD that God created the heavens and the earth – God spoke and it was!  John 1:1 tells us who and what was in the beginning and throughout Old Testament time.

 

Now we come to John 1:2 which says: “He was in the beginning with God.” Notice the change from “it” – the WORD, to “He” – Jesus, after the WORD became FLESH in John 1:14, telling us what was then, in New Testament time.

 

Gen.1:1 says exactly the same as John 1:1 that in the beginning was ONE God - God Almighty. This ONE God then decided to raise up for Himself a family, and so He chose the slave nation Israel and entered into a marriage covenant with Israel at Mt Sinai. In the “fullness of time” God chose the Jewess Mary, representing all of Israel – His wife, as the (surrogate) Mother of their only (so) begotten and firstborn Son, whom they named Jesus.

 

God is not Trinitarian, not Twinitarian and not Unitarian. God is monotheistic from beginning to end. There was but ONE God Being from the beginning and throughout Old Testament time, and there is but ONE God Family throughout New Testament time and into the Kingdome age.

If Jesus does not offer His life for the wages of our sins, is there any chance that GOd allowing us to go to heaven if we follow his will, by following what is written by some of the prophets?

In-order to convince the Earthly people
This serve to testify to the living beings that God won't only appear by dark clouds or big voice signs. But He sent His sons who flesh like any other human being in order to save the world. If you read in Ezekiel 36-16,37-4, we understand how the word of God connected with Ezekiel. The word of God "cuts all the way through, to where soul and spirit meet, to where joints and marrow come together" Hebrew 4: 12. God made it purposely that the word of God to become flesh so that we may believe.

The Word Became Flesh

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God.
All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. And the Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. The same came as a witness, that he might testify about the light, that all might believe through him. He was not the light, but was sent that he might testify about the light. That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him.
He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him.
But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. The Word became flesh, and lived among us. We saw His glory, such glory as of the one and only Son of the Father, full of grace and truth. John bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, “This was He of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me is preferred before me, for He was before me.’”
And of His fullness we all received grace upon grace. For the law was given through Moses. Grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. No one has seen God at any time. The one and only Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him.
