Was Jesus Christ God’s only begotten Son
long before His incarnation on earth?
Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? who hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? what is his name, and what is his son’s name, if thou canst tell?
He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.
The Eternal Father, the unchangeable one, gave his only begotten Son, tore from his bosom Him who was made in the express image of his person, and sent him down to earth to reveal how greatly he loved mankind.
The main purpose of this website is to substantiate the fact of Christ’s pre-incarnate Sonship by openly presenting available inspired testimonies from Holy Scripture, the writings of Mrs. Ellen G. White [1827-1915], and other important sources. Satan and all his fallen angels hate this truth regarding the true Sonship of Christ and they have warred against it since their rebellion in heaven against the authority of God’s beloved only begotten Son. Be sure to watch the video “Warfare Over The Matter” by Michael McCaffery to learn more.
The answer to this question is vitally important. The answer to this question is a resounding, YES!
The war in heaven, between Christ and the unfallen angels AND Lucifer and the fallen angels, began over the issue of the divine Sonship of Christ in the heavenly courts, before the creation of our world. Lucifer, a covering Cherubim, wanted Christ’s authority and position in heaven, next to God the Father, but he could not obtain it because he was a created being, not a divine Being, not a divine Son. Christ was God’s divine Son, the only begotten of God, the firstborn of heaven, the One by whom God created all things, the One who alone could enter into all the counsels and purposes of God. Lucifer and the rebellious angels have sought to obscure the fact that Christ was the only begotten Son of God in heaven, long before His incarnation on earth. God is the Father of Christ and Christ is the Son of God. This has been the true position of Christ ‘from the beginning’ in the hierarchy of heaven. God’s Son was made (begotten, born, brought forth; not created) in the express image of His Father’s person, from ancient times, from the beginning. He was begotten or made from a part of God Himself, from God’s own eternal divine substance. Yes, this truth contradicts the trinity doctrine, a 3-in-1 Being, which is widely popular in apostate Christianity. The fact is that the trinity doctrine is nowhere found in Scripture and was never taught by our Lord Jesus Christ. (For more information please be sure to visit: trinitydoctrine.org)
ATTENTION!! Please take some time out of your busy schedule and listen carefully to these three similar, yet different in the details, inspired accounts of how and why the fall of Lucifer happened in heaven, long before the creation of our tiny world. The great controversy, the war in heaven, actually began over Lucifer’s jealousy of the exalted position of God’s only begotten Son—the only being in all the universe who could enter into all the counsels and purposes of Jehovah God, the Great Father of all, the Source of all being. Notice carefully that Christ was the Son of God, His only begotten Son, from ancient times, from the beginning, from all eternity.
The Fall of Satan
The Fall of Lucifer
Why was Sin Permitted?
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?
And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.
She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.
A complete offering has been made; for “God so loved the world, that he gave his only-begotten Son,”—not a son by creation, as were the angels, nor a son by adoption, as is the forgiven sinner, but a Son begotten in the express image of the Father’s person, and in all the brightness of his majesty and glory, one equal with God in authority, dignity, and divine perfection. In him dwelt all the fullness of the Godhead bodily.
God is the Father of Christ; and Christ is the Son of God. To Christ has been given an exalted position. He has been made equal with the Father. All the councils of God are opened unto His Son.
Christ is called the Word. He is the first-begotten of the Father. By Him God has spoken unto us in these last days.
Angels [fallen angels: Lucifer and those angels who rebelled with him] were expelled from heaven because they would not work in harmony with God. They fell from their high estate because they wanted to be exalted. They had come to exalt themselves, and they forgot that their beauty of person and of character came from the Lord Jesus. This fact the angels would obscure, that Christ was the only begotten Son of God, and they came to consider that they were not to consult Christ. One angel [Lucifer] began the controversy and carried it on until there was rebellion in the heavenly courts among the angels. They were lifted up because of their beauty.
Speaking of the exalted position of Christ, the apostle continues: “Being made so much better than the angels, as He hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they. For unto which of the angels said He at any time, Thou art My Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to Him a Father, and He shall be to Me a Son? And again, when He bringeth the first begotten into the world, He saith, And let all the angels of God worship Him.” [Hebrews 1:4-6]
O, do you not know, cannot you understand this? The only begotten Son of God recognized the nobility of humanity by taking humanity upon Himself, and dying in behalf of humanity, testifying throughout all ages that “God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” [John 3:16]
The First Begotten of God was the only One who could liberate those who by Adam’s sin had been brought in subjection to Satan.
Our great Exemplar was exalted to be equal with God. He was high commander in heaven. All the holy angels delighted to bow before Him. “And again, when He bringeth in the First-begotten into the world, He saith, And let all the angels of God worship Him.” Jesus took upon Himself our nature, laid aside His glory, majesty, and riches to perform his mission, to save that which was lost.
In order that man might be placed on vantage ground with God, Christ, the only begotten Son of God, made in His express image, came to this world and in the likeness of humanity lived a perfect life.
