But the tricky questions comes to the mind of those who have little knowledge in the Bible, asking theirself, is Noah a Christian? Is Job a Christians? Are the prophets before the time of our Lord Jesus came are Christians? Because we are using their words and quotes, as a Christian quotes.
Let us first analyze what Christianity means and when did Christians started.
What is Christianity According to Man's Wisdom?It is a monotheistic and Abrahamic religion based on the life and teachings of Jesus as presented in canonical gospels and other New Testament writings. It also considers the Hebrew Bible,
which is known as the Old Testament, to be canonical. Adherents of the Christian
faith are known as Christians.
If we will just only based Christianity according to knowledge of man, we would think that Christianity was started only when our Lord Jesus preached the Gospel back in the time of Augustus Ceasar.
In The Bible - When Did Christianity Started?Christianity started before the earth and heaven was made.
What? Are you kidding? How come an un-existing creature exist even it was not created?
Simply because Christianity was made by Christ and Christ was not a creature, but instead, Christ is a co-creator of God. Like what the Bible said,
"And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth."God did not said, "I will make man"? but instead God said, "Let US make man" telling His co-creator to create a man like them, emphasizing the word "OUR likeness and OUR image" .
How come that the co-creator of God is our Lord Jesuscrist?
Because the Spirit is there even before the flesh was birth and it was written at the book of 1 Peter,
"Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow."The Bible verse above prove the Spirit of Christ was already teaching the prophets about Christ sufferings and glories that will happen.
(1 Peter 1:11)
Another verses that will testify the existence of Christ is when the Jews asked Jesus about Abraham, saying,
"Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham? Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am. "
There are plenty of Bible verses that testify the existence of Christ before being in flesh and one example this are written on the book of Proverbs,
"I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was. When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water. Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth:
While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world. When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth: When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep:
When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth:
Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him; Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons of men."
Christianity exist even before the earth was created and those who guided by the Spirit of Christ, those are the Christians who existed before our Lord Jesus came to flesh.
Thanks for reading "Is There Any Other Christians Before Jesus?" and may the Spirit of Christ guided you from all the things you do and whatever you say in accordance of Christ's will.
