John’s Historicistic Epistles

     Christ the Lord was, is, and always shall be also "the Word of Life."5501   He was "with God" — the living God — from all eternity.5602   Consequently, the Lord or Word Himself was; is; and ever shall be — even very God of very God.   For "the Word was God."5503    

     He Who always was "with the Father"5504 — namely He Who was and is and always shall be the Father's co-eternal "Son"5505 — was and is and always shall be able to bring 'human everlasting life' down to Earth and give it to His image man.   He is able to do so, precisely because He Himself had always been The Life — from all eternity5506 — and always shall be.
