In Jesus own words we learn how He was sent to glorify God in the earth and was with God before the world was ever created (John 17:1-5), These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was. (John 13:3),(Psalm 90:1,2).
Jesus may not be physically in the earth but is here through the holy spirit He promised to send when He was crucified and returned to His Father.When Peter delivered his sermon unto the people their heart was moved and asked what they should do,and his reply was they needed to repent and be baptized in the name of Jesus then the gift of the holy spirit would be given!Acts 2:37-39). 37 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.
He is the alpha and omega,the beginning and the end!He is infinite in knowledge and the number of His years cannot be figured out (Job 36:26).Jesus was God in the flesh and has said He and His Father are one),(Revelation 22:12-16), 12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. (John 10:30).
