    افتراضي God's plan for salvation

    God’s plan (John 1: 2)
    Jesus is the foundation on which God created the Heavens and earth (John 1: 3). There is only one God who is our Father (Matthew 23: 9), and to whom we should listen (Deuteronomy 6: 4-8). What turned things upside down is the most evil, dark Angel Satan (Romans 6: 15) who gained a success to rule over man and his world since Adam and Eve’s great fall in the Paradise of Eden.
    Man was rejected for his sins, sent away, and was under the wrath of God (Romans 3: 23). God’s anger represented by the way the Law of Moses was treating the Israeli people. The law was judging everyone according to the type of the sin, it is to be or not to be guilty, and the suspension made on how great the sin is. A sinner could pay his life for a type of sin, or get a chance to correct himself for another type of sin, if the law says he must die, he looses his eternity too. People, who were not baptized on the name of Jesus, do not have the chance in the after-life to escape the wrath of God, as they are not within God’s plan.
    God new all that would take place within his creation, what the future of man would be, a future full of terrible sins and violence that threatens man’s life and cause his destruction, so before creating man God planned his salvation.
    Man could live a short or long life (Matthew 16: 26) but he may loose his soul if not searching to win it. (Matthew 16: 26) As a good Creator, God knew that with His plan (Part of His deep love for man) man (as a living soul) can appears in his own world with the ability to live for ever secured with a better future.


    (A) Jesus- the promised Messiah. (Genesis 26: 2- 4, 22: 18)
    We owe Jesus our life (Galatians 3: 13) after he paid His own life a price for our sin. His death made it possible for us to receive everlasting life. (Colossians 1: 16, 17) Jesus is who gave us the opportunity to enjoy this life under the salvation plan of God (Isaiah 43: 11).
    Jesus was known as the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began. (Ephesians 3: 5, Romans 16: 25, Colossians 1: 26, 27) This mystery was kept in God’s plan until the last days when God spoke to us by his son (Hebrews 1; 2). God gave his clear promise to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (Genesis 12: 1-3, 17: 7) saying; “I will bless you.” Through God’s blessing, Israel has had a great name by becoming God’s chosen people (Deuteronomy 7: 6). God gave his promise to make Israel one fold (Deuteronomy 7: 6-8, 14: 2, 26: 18, 19) and from Israel the promised Messiah would be the shepherd who would bless everyone else on earth. (John 10: 16). The Israeli fathers having obtained a good report through faith, but they did not receive the promise yet. (Hebrew 11: 39, Act 13: 32). To Abraham and his seed were the promise made, he saith not, and to seeds, as of many, but as of one, and to thy seed, which is Christ. (Galatians 3: 16, Genesis 17: 19, 20, Romans 11: 1-4, 9: 6-8)

    (B) Jesus the Son of God (John 9: 35- 37, Psalm 2: 7)
    “He that believeth on the son hath everlasting life, and he that believeth not the son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abideth on him” (John 3: 36)

    Jesus is the beloved son, the only begotten son of God (Matthew 3: 17, Psalms 110: 1), who is with God from of old, from everlasting (Micah 5: 2).
    It is essential in the Christian faith to accept and believe in Jesus as Son of God, kind of trusting God (John 9: 35) as facts about God and Jesus should be accepted in faith. (Matthew 16: 16, Psalms 2: 7).
    Ignoring the fact that Jesus is the son of God, is a type of denying God himself, and accusing God of lying. (1 John 5: 10)
    Jesus did not come to change the Law of Moses which was given by God (Matthew 5: 17), he came to fulfil it, and like every Israelite Jesus was under the Law of Moses and remained faithful to it. The Christian faith is not a religion replacing Judaism (Matthew 5: 17), it is a new style for living the spirit of the Law as Jesus say; “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” (John 10: 10) Jesus himself defended the Law said while preaching that even one title from the law cannot fail to be. (Luke16:17)
    Jesus is a man from God; his unique birth, being born of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary, as well as his teaching and the unbelievable miracles he made reveals him a divine. (John 5: 36, Isaiah 29: 18, 35: 5, 6) He started his mission preaching, “The Gospel of the kingdom.” (Matthew 4: 23) and was given “All power in heaven and earth” (Matthew 28: 18) to speak on behalf of God.
    Jesus gave enough information about himself, besides he told his disciples why he came and the aim of his mission, talking about his suffering and death that would happen for the salvation of Israel. Moving between the Israeli towns and villages Jesus preached the Gospel, helped and healed all who were sick through the power of his miracles. (Isaiah 61: 1)
    Jesus came to preach the good news, and as a good shepherd he wished to bring Israel (the lost sheep) back as one flock, so he can look after their daily living and eternity, (John 17: 6- 12) but many people found it difficult to understand who Jesus was or accept the fact that He is the Son of God then they left him.

    Jesus has had to pay his life a price for the sin of man, (John 10: 18), laying down his life to bring man back to the way of perfection (John 17: 6) and back to God our father as sons and daughters. (2 Corinthians 6: 18) “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus, unto good works which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” (Ephesians 2: 10)
    We are still waiting for our Lord to return, when Jesus might stops this system as death still in power, then Jesus will judge the living and dead. We live in an (in between time) when the Gospel must be proclaimed to all nations. (Mark 13: 10). This is the extent of his great love and mercy, which he had for all of us his children. Now is the time of his mercy, and he calls on all followers of Christ proclaim the good news to all who will listen. Salvation is not coming in power yet because God is giving one more chance for everyone to accept Jesus and be saved before it is too late. Those who refuse will remain in their sin. (2 Peter 3: 9)
    The law and the sacrifice system were given to Moses in order to guide the people of Israel as redemption over different sins and a way to the forgiveness of sins. It was given for a period, starting from the time the law took place until Jesus appeared as a man, while the end of Jewish sacrifice ended in the shadow of Christ on the cross. His sacrifice was the one perfect sacrifice made for all time, the sacrifice of the Lamb of God to end sacrifice of the Animals.

    (C) Jesus God blessed
    (Of whom are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh, Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever amen) (Romans 9: 5).
    When Philip asked Him to show the Father, Jesus explained that nothing is different between Him and the Father. Answering Philip Jesus said; “Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me?”(John 14: 9) “I and my father are one.”(John 10: 30) “Believe that the father is in me, and I in him.” (John 10: 38)
    Jesus was given all the power to represents God (Matthew 28:18), and as a humble man, Jesus in his mission continued to be faithful to the will of God, to the extent that every word and thought was that of the Father, He suppressed his own wishes to do God’s (Mark 14: 36), considering the father greater than him, (John 14: 28, John 10: 29) even with the fact of Jesus being in the “form of God,” Jesus did not count equality with God. (Philippians 2: 6) To show he was of God, he also freely submitted to the work, which was within God’s plan (John 5: 17), Jesus repeated those words unto his disciples and to the Hebrew saying; “The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the father do” (John 5: 19). According to the Bible, Jesus is the Son of God, the heir and the only Mediator between God and man (Matthew 21: 38).
    The Son took flesh and physically died on the Cross and as it is written in the Bible God raised Jesus from the dead. (Psalm 16: 10, Acts 2: 24, 32) to be the first fruits of his new creation (1 Corinthian 15: 23).
    Before his ascending, Jesus appeared to the disciples and to many others, and promised that after he ascended into heaven, (John 14: 16) he will ask of the Father to send the Advocate, the Holy spirit, which would empower and guide the Church (Acts 1: 16), enable it to preach the Gospel and spread the faith, and on explaining the benefit that the Holy Spirit can offer, One of the Holy Spirit’s benefits is to show things to come (Mark 13: 10).
    After the Holy Spirit was received, the church began to grow and new thoughts were growing to fulfil the Prophesy about Jesus by Isaiah said; “And the government shall be upon his shoulder and his name shall be called wonderful counsellor the Mighty God the everlasting father, the prince of peace.” (Isaiah 9: 6)
    Jesus fulfilled the divine plan by being (Luke 22: 42) “obedient unto the death of the cross” (Philippians 2: 8). As He paid his life to buy Man a new life, “God has highly exalted Jesus, giving him a name, which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth, Jesus is Lord to the glory of God the father.” (Philippians 2: 9- 11) “Jesus is above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in the world, but also in which is to come. God also hath put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be the head over that all things to the Church. (Ephesians 1: 21, 22) he is God’s heir “A partner sharing the creation with God the father” (Matthew 21: 38, Luke 20: 13, 14, Psalm 2: 8) God made Jesus Lord and Christ (Acts 2: 36) and has committed all judgement unto him. (John 5: 22)
    Should this new system will continue until the last hour (Matthew 24: 36, Mark 13: 32) “Then cometh the end.” (1 Corinthians 15: 24- 28) “When he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father when he shall put down all rule and all authority and power…..then shall the Son also Himself be subject unto Him (God) that God may be all in all” to fulfil the prophesy by Isaiah said:
    “I even I am the Lord, and besides me there is no saviour” (Isaiah 43: 11).

    By the direction of the Holy Spirit, the disciples wrote their life with Jesus for the use and teaching of the faithful (James 3: 1, 2), this work became known by the name Gospels and Letters of the New Testament.
