The Logos is the Word of God, and is the first manifestation of God from eternity. The Logos created the world, appeared to Adam as the "voice of the LORD God", to Moses as the burning bush, to John the Baptist as a dove descending on Jesus, and to Paul as a great shining light. As the Word of God, the Logos is the Bible - both the promises, and the manifestations.

The Logos is the Father of the Son of God, and the Spirit of Christ Jesus. Jesus came from God, and went back to God (<KJVBible>John 13:3</KJVBible>). The meaning of this is revealed in the book of Acts, when the Pillar of Fire (the same Logos that met Moses) said to Paul: "I am Jesus whom thou persecutest" (<KJVBible>Acts 9:3-6</KJVBible>). Jesus had come from God (the Logos), and descended into Adam's race to become the Son of God and Son of Man. After his resurrection, Jesus returned to Heaven, to the glory that he had with the Father before the world was. Jesus, the Word made flesh, once again became the Word made Spirit, the Logos.

The Word once again was made flesh on the day of Pentecost when the Holy Spirit descended, and tongues of fire appeared over 120 disciples waiting for the promise of the Father.

Commentary by William Branham

The Logos and creation

He was God, the Logos, the Word that went out of God. When, He begin to brood upon the earth, and brought forth marine life. When the Spirit of God, the Logos, the Word, which God said, "Let there be," and there went the Logos, which is the Word. And the Word begin to... 'cause all this was in the Logos; the whole Word of God, the whole Bible, for every age. And as the Logos begin to breathe upon the earth, there come marine life; and building up, the bird life, on up to animal life. And finally there come something in the representation, or looked like the thing that was brewing it, brooding over it, God, a man in the very image of God.

The Logos and Redemption

That man fell, like the seed has to fall. And then God begin to brood over that, after the fall. He brought up a--a Enoch, He brought up a Elijah, He brought up a Moses, He brought up prophet after prophet, trying to restore that image again. And, finally, upon the earth came the genuine image of God Himself again, which was God, the Logos made flesh and dwelt among us.
Now that same Logos has a part, He has got a Bride, and the same Logos, this Word that cannot be tampered with, is brooding over the churches today, trying to bring back the Word to Its full manifestation. Which, the--the prophets was carriers to that Seed, and the church denominations has been carriers to the Seed now. Now notice, quickly, but like the shuck hugs, holds in the Seed now, then it leaves her.
Jesus was God. He was. His Father was the great Logos Itself.

The Logos and the Pillar of Fire

And Moses was leading the children of Israel, just as God would tell them where to go, led by a Pillar of Fire, and a supernatural Being that was leading the way. And Moses was getting his information through the--the Logos, of course, that went out of God, that Pillar of Fire; which was the Angel of the Covenant, which was Christ, the Anointed One. And he was getting his message through There, and giving it to the children of Israel, on the road to a promised land.

And, now, that was the Pillar of Fire that led the children of Israel, was the Lord Jesus Christ in Spirit form, (do you believe that?) the Logos that went out of God. [Congregation said, "Amen."--Ed.] And then when He was on earth, He said, "I come from God, and I go to God." We all know that.

Now, after His death, burial, and ascension, and the coming of the Holy Ghost, Paul on his road down--which was Saul--to Damascus, he was struck down by a Pillar of Fire, the Logos. And that Jew would've never called that Pillar of Fire, "Lord," unless he knew It was the same Logos that his people followed through the wilderness. See? Now, that was not the Son of man; that was the Logos.

The Logos in the Church

Now, on the day of Pentecost It come down, that Pillar of Fire, and broke apart like that, and tongues of fire set upon each of them, not their tongues, but tongues of fire set upon each of them, a elected, selected group, identified by this Pillar of Fire, showing that God had separated Himself into man. Do you get it? God, the Logos, separating Himself into men; God, not in one person, He's in His Church universal.
