Hello brother , may God bless you. May the spirit of God translate HIS word to you clearly in Jesus name, Amen!
This scriptures is very very clear, sound and straight, I don't know why you people are twisting it and wanted  to turn your own brain to another thing. Anyway All is Well

John 1

1 In the beginning was the Word (Jesus) , and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He (Jesus) was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him(Jesus)  all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light(Jesus)  shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

Here let us understand that , Jesus was with God before anything on earth were created, and the word(Jesus) was God Himself, truly all things were made through word except human,(which means , all things were made trough Jesus the word).  Jesus was with God before the creation of anything on earth.

 6 There was a man sent from God whose name was John. 7 He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all might believe. 8 He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light.
9 The true light that gives light to everyone (I.e Jesus)was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. 11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. 12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— 13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God...

God sent fort John to testify concerning Jesus Christ

v14 The Word (Jesus)  became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
 
If He didn't became like us to dwell with us like flesh, how can we belief in Him? Imagine He was a spirit, people will even be afraid of Him.
Just because He wanted to save the world ,He came down in Form of man, yet people like you didn't believe in Him. Yoruba adage says" who so ever want to catch monkey will act like a monkey" which means if Jesus want to show us the way to heaven he must be like us as man.

v15 John testified concerning him. He cried out, saying, "This is the one I spoke about when I said, 'He who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.'"
John let us know that He(Jesus) was before him, does that mean Jesus has come to earth. And went back before? NO! He simply means , before he was created, Jesus was in Heaven already.

v18 No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.
 Who so ever reading the bible and does not have the Holy Spirit can never understand it. But brother I will like you to ask for the  Holy spirit to translate the word of God to you in the right way, flesh cannot understand it because, this word is spirit and life. # shalom
