In the beginning…

"In the beginning..."
(John 1:1)

"In the beginning..."
(Genesis 1:1)

One written by Moses
A man mightily used by God

The other...
By a man who was a Disciple
The Disciple whom Jesus loved

"Now there was leaning on 
Jesus’ bosom one of His disciples, 
whom Jesus loved."
(John 13:23)

"Then Peter, turning around, 
saw the disciple whom Jesus loved"
(John 21:20)

The man who wrote this...
Was THAT man...
JOHN

In Genesis 1:1 it continues
"In the beginning God..."

Whereas in John 1:1 it is
"In the beginning was the Word..."

And when we read on in John
"And the Word became flesh 
and dwelt among us, 
and we beheld His glory, 
the glory as of the only begotten 
of the Father, 
full of grace and truth."
(John 1:14)

In the beginning
The very beginning
Of creation...
God existed
And the Word existed

And they were ONE and the SAME

My point is that
It  ALL started 
In the BEGINNING

And WE were NOT in the beginning
But ONLY God was...
ONLY the Word was...
ONLY Jesus was...

Since Jesus = the Word = God

So we need to "wise up"
To the FACT
That Salvation has EVERYTHING
To do with God

It has almost NOTHING 
To do with us

(I say "almost" since we 
Need to RESPOND)

And indeed EVERYONE
Does RESPOND

Some positively
By accepting the Love
That God has for us...

The rest negatively
By rejecting the Love
That God has for them...

And in so doing...
They reject God Himself
And do NOT receive Salvation

Nor do they gain
From the benefits of Salvation...
One benefit being
Life with God forever in heaven
When they DIE...
