    Verse 15 is the first prophecy recorded in the Bible.
  • Michael C.
    Verse 15 This is the "Word which was from the beginning with God;...and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." This is the Word which allowed man to still live the rest of his time in the flesh; albeit under humiliation, toil and sorrow: in faith of the glad tidings of the Saviour to come. It was against this Word that Cain killed his brother, as so do the ungodly persecute the righteous.

    Did God know beforehand? He knows all things, and is still good and faithful to all; leaving all without excuse. The plan of God concerning man, He will certainly bring to its perfect end. Has not the potter power over the clay, to make one vessel unto honor, and the other unto dishonor? He now tries us with His melting and proving of every man's soul; of what kind each of us shall prove to be.
