Christ: Eternal Self-Existent Divine Saviour

John 1:1 "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men."

"In Christ is life, original, unborrowed, underived. ... The divinity of Christ is the believer's assurance of eternal life." {DA 530.3}

"He was equal with God, infinite and omnipotent. He was above all finite requirements. ... Of the highest angels it could not be said that they had never borne a yoke. The angels all bear the yoke of dependence, the yoke of obedience. They are the appointed messengers of Him who is Commander of all heaven. {Ms 101, 1897, par. 27} No one of the angels could become a substitute and surety for the human race, for their life is God’s; they could not surrender it. On Christ alone the human family depended for their existence. He is the eternal, self-existent Son, on whom no yoke had come. When God asked, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Christ alone of the angelic host could reply, “Here am I; send Me.” [Isaiah 6:8.] He alone had covenanted before the foundation of the world to become a surety for man. He could say that which not the highest angel could say—“I have power over my own life. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again.” [John 10:18.] {Ms 101, 1897, par. 28}



I have been abundantly blessed in seeking to understand the Godhead for myself. I have been especially blessed in studying about Christ. I think you will be too. The resources only reflect a tiny portion of what I have found.—Dan

Christ Humbled Himself

(Bible Verses and Quotations)

To save mankind, Christ, the Eternal Word and Son of God, humbled Himself, clothing His divinity with humanity, taking upon Himself the frailties and vicissitudes of life, so that we might be saved. Find Bible verses and quotations on His humbling on this page.


Worship Christ

The following quote speaks to Christ's right to our worship: "We do not half acknowledge His right to our homage and obedience and to our increasing faith in Him." {Lt318-1907} There are many more verses and quotes that speak of worshipping Christ as God—the Bible speaks of Christ as God and there are numerous examples of Christ allowing individuals to worship Him which would have been blasphemy had it not been true! You will find some of those verses and quotes on this page! As a result there is no reason to even slightly question worshipping Christ as God! (Read more verses and quotes on this important topic on this page.)

How Is Christ The Son Of God?

Find helpful information on how Christ is the Son of God on this page!

"Christ is declared in the Scriptures to be the Son of God. From all eternity He has sustained this relation to Jehovah. Before the foundations of the world were laid, He, the only begotten Son of God, pledged Himself to become the Redeemer of the human race should men sin. Adam fell, and He, who was partaker of the Father’s glory before the world was, laid aside His royal robe and kingly crown and stepped down from His high authority to become a babe in Bethlehem, that He might redeem fallen human beings by passing over the ground where Adam stumbled and fell."Ellen White, Manuscript 22, 1905.4


Scriptures and Quotes On Christ's Eternal Existence 

Here you will find many Scriptures and quotations that clearly show that Christ has existed from all eternity! The evidence is overwhelming. If he has existed from all eternity, it is obvious that He could not have been "begotten" or "birthed" in the far distant past. Here is one of the quotes listed:

"The Lord has ever existed in perfection from all eternity. He has been ever what He now is, “I am that I am;” “The high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity.” [Exodus 3:14; Isaiah 57:15.] This is His title. “Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.” Psalm 90:2. “I am the Lord, I change not.” Malachi 3:6. With Him is no variableness or shadow of turning." Ellen White, Manuscript 180, 1897.2
