From where do you get the idea that the logos equals Yahshua the Messiah? The plan of Yahweh is the concept of all eternity; do you really think you can understand Yahweh’s logos?
The first chapter of John clearly identifies Yahshua the Messiah as the Word or logos of Yahweh: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with Elohim, and the Word was Elohim. The same was in the beginning with Elohim. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.”
“Word” in this passage comes the Greek logos. Strong’s defines logos as, “…something said (including the thought); by implication a topic (subject of discourse), also reasoning (the mental faculty) or motive; by extension, a computation; specifically (with the article in John) the Divine Expression (i.e. Christ).”
The vast majority of lexicons provide similar definitions. We also find a connection to the Word or logos in John 1:14. It states there that the Word became flesh: “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” This verse undoubtedly connects the Word with Yahshua the Messiah.
Some who reject the Messiah’s preexistence will state that the “Word” in the first verse is referring to the “plan” of Yahweh, while verse 14 refers to the actuality of that plan through the person of Yahshua. The problem is, John does not make this distinction. The context confirms no difference between the Word in verse 1 and the Word in verse 14. Therefore, they must both refer to Yahshua.
Furthermore, the Bible verifies elsewhere that through Yahshua all creation came into existence. Paul in Colossians 1:15-17 states: “Who is the image of the invisible El, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him. And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.”
There are several important truths we learn from this passage. One, Yahshua was the first of Yahweh’s creation. Two, He is the invisible image or resemblance of His Father. And three, He created all things, both visible and invisible. He was responsible from the smallest atom to the vast stars in the grand universe.
We find similar evidence from the Old Testament for Yahshua’s role in creation. Proverbs 30:4 states, “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?” This passage references creation and specifically mentions the Father and Son. If the Son did not exist in the Old Testament or had no part in creation, why does it refer here to the son?
Based on this and many other indications in the Old and New testaments, there is no denying that Yahshua is the Word or logos that brought creation into existence through the direction of His Father and the power of the Holy Spirit.
