• Since, as created human beings, we are limited to thinking in the dimensions of time, space, and quantity, it is difficult for us to grasp the idea of something that has no beginning, no end, and an unlimited capacity. But we must realize that God would not be God if His Eternal Existence and Infinite Power could be fitted into man’s finite understanding.

    All we can really know is that when we have probed, as far as our minds will reach back into Eternity, the bright rays of God’s Light and Glory still stream out to us from areas beyond the reach of our minds. In other words, somewhere beyond the con- fines of our human thoughts, there exists an infinite ocean of God’s Eternal Being. Within the Godhead is the Christ, the Eternal, Divine Word, Who had no beginning, and Who has no end. There is also the Divine Lord of Glory Who has always existed and Who will always be. The third Person in the Godhead is the Divine Spirit of God, the Holy Ghost.

    The concepts in this book explain, as clearly as possible, the Truth of the beginning Existence of Jesus, God’s Only Begotten Son, and continues with His Life on earth up to Jesus’ eternal join- ing to the Christ and to the Lord of Glory, after His Crucifixion and Resurrection.

    For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. (Luke 2:11)

    Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ. (Acts 2:36)

    Jesus, Who lived on this Earth as the Son of Man, was both human and Divine. Jesus was His human Name; Lord and Christ were His Divine Names. After His crucifixion, the Son was exalted by God the Father into an eternal Union with both the Lord and Christ. As the Lord Jesus Christ, He now sits at the Right Hand of the Father in Heaven.

    The same Bible that teaches the existence of a God, known as Father, Word (Christ), and Holy Ghost, without a beginning or an end, also teaches us about the beginning of God’s Only Begotten Son, Whose Name is Jesus. The Bible is our sole source for the Truth because, within its pages, is hidden ALL Truth. Whereas the Christ had no beginning, the Scriptures plainly declare the Son’s beginning in Eternity-Past. Also, history clearly affirms the terrestrial beginning of the Son’s Humanity. The Book of Psalms confirms the fact that the Son’s beginning took place in the past ages of Eternity. This Truth is reiterated in the Book of Acts.

    I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee. (Psalm 2:7)

    God hath fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that he hath raised up Jesus again; as it is also written in the second psalm, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee. (Acts 13:33)

    The word begotten means to procreate (properly, by the father, but, by extension, of the mother); to regenerate, to bear, to beget, to be born, to bring forth, to conceive, to be delivered of, gender, make spring. We become acquainted with many facts about God by studying His Names. For instance, we learn from the Hebrew Name for God, Elohim, that God exists in a plural form. Elohim is a uniplural noun that establishes that within God’s Being there exists a plurality. Genesis, chapter one, verse one, reveals God’s plural Form of being both Male and Female; it says that “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” God (the Father-Mother) brought forth all Creation, which consisted of male and female, and, finally, He created man (male and female) in His own Image (Male and Female).

    Thus, one of our first concepts of God is that, very basically, the Wheel of His Being has two sides: a Male side and a Female side. The Two Sides of the Wheel of God’s Being two sides of the Wheel of God’s Being.

    Since man was created in God’s Image and Likeness, this simple drawing helps us to understand why God created mankind in a male and a female form; both forms were needed to portray God’s complete Image. Abram was the first person to receive an open revelation of God’s two sides.

    And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect. (Genesis 17:1)
