Birds of a feather.
Prologue to John’s gospel

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. This one was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through him, and apart from him not one thing came into being that has come into being.

Note 3 – John 1:3 Or “came into being. What …,” beginning a new sentence connected with the following verse. A major punctuation problem is involved, since the earliest manuscripts have no punctuation, but some important later ones place the punctuation before this phrase, effectively connecting it to v.

Lexham English Bible (LEB) John 1:1-3

Yes, God has a voice with which he spoke and the words he spoke were honey and light and the radiance of his glory sprang forth from his mouth and Matter was born. Yes, we matter, he numbered every blade of grass, hair of head, scale of fish,every living day of every living thing. Before the beginning of the Creation.

God is eternal and his Voice always with him, though neither had a beginning since God is eternal, and really there is no such thing as eternity either, since eternity is a measurement of time and when God fingered his spirit everywhere there was nowhere which wasn’t God no room for anything else at all.

Forever the Voice has resounded through the halls of nothingness until preternatural light dawned in a magnificent burst of energy and the Voice chattered away, praised everything that mattered, no matter how small. A beautiful blue planet was crafted and when Voice began moulding this because it was shapeless, Voice whistled while he worked. The crafted thing was covered with water, deep, and voice breathed upon it and Ruach Elohim hovered there, whispering silent directions beneath beating wings.

Voice and the heavenlies gathered together and God said Let us make humankind in our image, I thought this little rock up just for them, Beings in our Image, our likeness. They matter, they will love as I first loved them. They will be wilful, and warmongers,peaceable and pleased, obedient and disobedient. Goodness and sanctity will ooze out of many a one, Voice knows who and when, where and for how long because I loved them into being, they are mine and I will go among them. My Voice shall become one of them, shall live as a human and the fulness of my being will be very pleased to dwell within this Man.

For this One is the light of life who will walk upon the earth, teach of the things of Heaven and earth until just as ever the kingdom will be among my children as I am all that was, and is and will be.

They won’t abide him,yet Voice is precognition Personified and will guide them to the Tree of Life and Death from where a silent sigh will finish the creation, it is finished now let the whole world dance! Voice has surveyed the animate and inanimate of the earth, has given himself up to death that this beautiful blue ovoid will become wise enough to gather salvation in, to love each and everyone and thing until its journeying days are done.

For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only son so that whoever believes in him shall not be lost forever but shall have eternal life. That time thing again.

When mystery become mundane, ordinary, earthbound it is sometimes impossible to associate the one with the other because they are one and the same, one voice in the heavenlies and the Voice incarnate speaking through his life and drawing all towards him. God is just so much everywhere that he is nowhere to be seen.

ANd this is our Faith that we believe in the One who loved us first, even when there is no physical sign of the One.

God is Light and in him is no darkness at all, his Voice whispers in the quiet of the wind, roars in the volcanoes , rattling and whooshing above the caldera. Washing up as a wave upon the sea and the world champion surfer riding upon the whispering Breath. He is the sun shine, the warm and friendly rain, nowhere is God not everywhere is God as though there were nought else but God.

And that will be so when that great day is upon us and we return to the innocence of the children we shall become when we embrace his Voice and walk in his ways.
