What was the activity of the Preincarnate Christ? That is what we will be studying in this post. We know that the Preincarnate Christ is eternal; so it is safe to say that we will be able to see from scripture His work before His incarnation.
When you study the work of the Preincarnate Christ you have to talk about two main points and those are His work as Creator and His work as Angel of the Lord. That is exactly what we set out to do today. By the end of this post you will have a vivid understanding of these two important ministries of our Lord!
Here we go!
The Preincarnate Christ as Creator
Historically the doctrine of creation ex nihilo, or out of nothing, has been the generally accepted doctrine of the Christian Church. It states that God created the universe and all that it contains out of nothing. God the father and the Holy Spirit are both attributed to creation and as we will see Christ the Son is also.

Kings Dream is a lifestyle brand founded by Positive Hip-Hop artist, Ruslan. The brand was inspired by John 10:10, “…I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” Kings Dream is part music label, but SO much more than that.
In Col. 2:9 it Paul says that in Christ the fullness of Deity dwells. An attribute of God is that He is Eternal. It is not only necessary to see the pre-existence of Christ but also His eternality when claiming His deity. That is precisely what we will be looking at today in the Preincarnate Christ.
We will get into the meaning of His eteranlity, the importance and the evidence that is proved in scripture.
The Person of Jesus Christ is crucial to the Christian faith. If Jesus was not who He claimed to be then His atonement was insufficient and our faith is in vain. So we are going to take a look at the Preexistence of Christ to get a better understanding of just who He is.
John F. Walvoord in Jesus Christ Our Lordstates: ” Evidences which support the concept of the preexistence of Christ are so many that it is impossible to deny them without denying the accuracy of both the Old and New Testament.”
What we have set out to do is take a look at the meaning of preexistence, its importance and the evidence that the Bible sets forth for us.
Anyone who reads the Bible is an interpreter of the Bible. It is important for you to find out what the original author was saying if you are going to interpret it correctly. Once you have found out what he was saying it will be easier for you to apply it to your own situation.
