Yes, exactly, the Word existed from the beginning with God. The Word created, and yes this is before the Word took on the flesh of Jesus. Jesus was not a messenger, that's a Muslim thing. There were no messengers, they were prophets, speaking for God, not repeating or reciting.Jesus "was" (is?) the Logos, the Word of God, which was before Jesus was born, and the Word is the Good Message to us, and divine. Jesus is the Messenger, and as he is not just speaking but "living" this Message, he incorporates the Message. John says, "the Word became flesh"
But we are some animals living on a planet in a world with an unknown huge number of other planets. God is the Creator, and omnipresent. You see the disproportion?
Keep it all in context.
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 He was in the beginning with God.
3 All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being.
4 In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men.
5 The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

Just because you can not wrap your head around this, doesn't make it not true. Like I said, you Muslims have a very small god, much like a human.
