John 8:57,58 "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 ,I WAS."
Proverbs 8:22-31 From of old I was poured forth, at the first, before the earth. When there were no depths I was brought forth, when there were no fountains or springs of water; Before the mountains were settled into place, before the hills, I was brought forth;While as yet the earth and the fields were not made, nor the first clods of the world."When he established the heavens I was there, when he marked out the vault over the face of the deep;
When he made firm the skies above, when he fixed fast the foundations of the earth:When he set for the sea its limit, so that the waters should not transgress his command; Then was I beside him as his craftsman, and I was his delight day by day, Playing before him all the while,playing on the surface of his earth; and I found delight in the sons of men."
Philippians 2:8,9: "And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name"
So; Before coming to earth, Jesus was a spirit in heaven living with his father. That is why Jesus is reffered to as "the one who was sent"......because he was sent from heaven to earth to act as God's word or messenger.
