“At the beginning God expressed himself. That personal expression, that word, was with God, and was God, and he existed with God from the beginning. All creation took place through him, and none took place without him.” (John 1: 1-3, JB Phillips New Testament)
God’s word, the very Truth of being, is the one creative Principle of all that exists. God spoke: He announced His purpose, He expressed Himself eloquently and perfectly at the beginning, as the Originator, and He said all that ever was said or needed to be said.
The fullness of His Word, His Truth of His own Father-Motherhood, is the first and final reality of things. His awareness of His own thoughts and His love for His offspring, His own perfect creation is the forever fact of Life–our Life. And this Truth and its expression remains in its original form: God and man at one, every idea He conceived being sustained by His constant attention, protection, and affection.
Nothing was formed but what God formed. Nothing unlike infinite, pure goodness, has a beginning nor was it expressed, made manifest. The Word remains with God and that Word is everlasting Life–God’s immortal children dwelling as the constant, immediate, and eternal expression of His boundless, flawless Love.
