Questions about Preexistence

This is a non-WLC article. When using resources from outside authors, we only publish the content that is 100% in harmony with the Bible and WLC current biblical beliefs. So such articles can be treated as if coming directly from WLC. We have been greatly blessed by the ministry of many servants of Yahuwah. But we do not advise our members to explore other works by these authors. Such works, we have excluded from publications because they contain errors. Sadly, we have yet to find a ministry that is error-free. If you are shocked by some non-WLC published content [articles/episodes], keep in mind Proverbs 4:18. Our understanding of His truth is evolving, as more light is shed on our pathway. We cherish truth more than life, and seek it wherever it may be found.

questions about preexistence

As well as contradicting the Bible, preexistence simply defies logic. Consider these questions:

1) At what point in Yahushua’ earthly ministry was he aware of his preexistence?

2) How could Yahushua fully comprehend his preexistence consisting of the same attributes as the Father, which were only on loan to him on a limited basis?

3) At what point did Yahushua know the decision he was wrestling with to go to the cross was one he had already previously made in his former state?

4) What meaningful fellowship could the Father possibly have had with his preexistent Son who shared the exact same attributes as the Father prior to creation?

5) Was the “decision” of the preexistent Son to “empty himself” of his deity really a decision at all considering he already shared the Father’s omniscience?

6) How is it possible for the preexistent Son to empty himself of everything that makes up his entire existence (substance and essence). What would remain?

7) Since Yahushua is in his final resurrected body state, where did his preexistent substance and essence go? Back to the Father?

8) At the exact second prior to the Father conceiving Yahushua in the womb of Mary by the power of the Holy Spirit, what was the preexistent substance and essence doing? Why was it even necessary?

9) Does the resurrected Yahushua long and lament for the days when he existed as the preexistent Son? Does he have any lasting memories of those days? How could he?

We have taken out from the original article all pagan names and titles of the Father and Son, and have replaced them with the original given names. Furthermore, we have restored in the Scriptures quoted the names of the Father and Son, as they were originally written by the inspired authors of the Bible. -WLC Team
