    Jennifer, you are correct. Also this scripture is saying that Jesus Christ is and was truly God in the human body. John 1:1 In the beginning was the word and the word was with God and the word was God. The Son part of the holy Trinity. Jesus accepted worship from men on earth. Phil. 2:6 Being found in the form of man he thought it not robbery to be equal with God. Glory be to God in the highest.

    Abel, Jesus said, ".... write: These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God: ......." Rev.3:14. Jesus is the the beginning of God's creation. Which creation does he refer to? It is the new creation, of which Jesus is the firstborn from among the dead. Jesus is the head of the body of Christ, the new creation, made up of all his brethren.

Life itself here on earth is temporary so use your God given life wise time is leaving the hour glass. 1 Corinthians 15:50-58 there is hope for them that seek him diligent.
