(companion subject – 'Jesus – About Him')

Christ was all the intentions (the words, the decisions).of God made manifest (John 1:14; Hebrews 1:2,3; 1John 1:1,2; John 1:1-3; Ephesians 3:9; Revelation 4:11) to be known by us (John 20:31), which included abolishing death.(2Timothy 1:10), taking away the inequities of life that have made life so hard for so many and, being filled with His fulness.

Jesus describes why He came to Earth:.Luke 4:18-21 "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord. And he closed the book and he gave it again to the minister and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.".And Acts 3:26.

Christ came to straighten out the heart, by revealing many heretofore unknown spiritual maxims, enabling us to be healed; to free us from all that binds, and to fill us with encouragement:.Hebrews 10:20-24 "By a new and living way, which he has consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; And having an high priest over the house of God; Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering, for he is faithful that promised. And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works."

He has unlimited power to do what God wants Him to do for us:.John 3:34; Colossians 1:19; Matthew 28:18. And this unlimited power is available us to the extent our attitudes are filled with the love necessary to enable it to be safely used.

Luke 15:7,32 "I say unto you, that likewise joy is in heaven over one sinner that repents.(decides to change), more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance...I came not to call the righteous.(those who have their own form of righteousness), but sinners to repentance."

Christ came in the flesh and form of a man (Luke 1:35) to be King (John 18:37), our savior (Luke 2:11; John 4:42; 2Timothy 1:9; Romans 14:9; Hebrews 5:9), to save us so that we could have eternal life.

A sinful person could not die for sin. Only a perfect man could be a sacrifice for sin:.Hebrews 10:12; Ephesians 2:4; John 3:16.

He is our brother, as well as the one who came to.save the world, the.saviour of all mankind (1Timothy 4:10), not the one to scare and to condemn people to hell. From the God Family, Christ, came to earth in the physical form of Jesus.

He came to make possible a relationship with the Father, for those He (Jesus before His physical human form) created.(2Corinthians 5:18), so we could bepart of the God Family:.Matthew 11:27 "All things are delivered unto me of my Father and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him."

We are now in peace with the Father, sin no longer a factor:.John 1:17; Acts 10:36; Romans 5:21; 1Corinthians 1:4; Colossians 2:6.7; Ephesians 1:5.

-Christ came for the suffering of death and to taste death for every man:.Hebrews 2:9. He willingly offered up Himself. Effectively He was saying by His actions: 'Father, I will go down and die for them, so that nothing can ever again come between them and you'; to enable the unity comprising the Father, Christ and spiritual minded persons of love:.2Corinthians 5:21. He came and died so you also could have a relationship with the Father...

The Son of the Father, the One who became the Christ, and long before (who knows when?) He became physical flesh in the form of Jesus, it was decided that He would take upon Him all faults, all errors, all.inconsistencies, all sins in the universe; Jesus having died, not only for sin in one's life, not only for sin in all peoples lives, but for very sin itself; it's gone forever now as far as the Father is concerned, as far as the Father now looks at mankind, as far as the Father now looks upon you, me and everyone else who ever lived and died on Earth.

Christ now appears before the Father for us:.Hebrews 9:24. He exchanged all that is bad or could become bad in you, for all that has always been right with Him. In God's eyes we're now ok.

Christ's sacrifice (Ephesians 5:2; Hebrews 7:27; 9:26; 10:2).purged.sins once for all:.Hebrews 1:3, so that we can now be at one with the Father and Him. As a result, Christ is able to subdue all things to Himself:.Philippians 3:21; Romans 9:19.

He opened the way for us to enjoy this relationship with the Father (Romans 5:10) and is the assurance of the New Testament:.Hebrews 7:22; 8:6; 9:11; 12:24.

He died on our behalf.(and that, willingly), not instead of us, as we could never have, by our death, atoned for sin by any kind of a perfectly righteous life apart from His sacrifice (Isaiah 64:6) at all:.Romans 5:11-"And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.".(the word 'atonement' here means 'reconciliation' and means 'to exchange'; that is, His life for our death.{death here being permanent separation from God}, so we can now live unto God:.Galatians 2:19,20; Philippians 1:21; 2Timothy 2:11; Hebrews 12:9; 1John 4:9; Romans 14:8)

Christ came so that we could be made the sons of God:.Galatians 4:4-7.

Christ brought us into His realm of His righteousness by redeeming (means to buy back) us from all iniquity (Titus 2:14, and ref #1 on 'redeemed') even though we still may have many faults (1John 1:8; 1John 2:1), but not to Him or the Father anymore are they regarded.

Christ's sacrifice was just that great! Some call it the great exchange.

By His sacrifice He exchanged the sins of all mankind for all time for the gift of righteousness to those who believe.

He came here to die so that we could have the gift of righteousness enabling us to be in the Father's love forever, with all that means! That is what Jesus did! That is how much the Father loves you, and all of us!.1Peter 2:24 "Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness; by whose stripes you were healed."

He did this by fulfilling (original is 'completing'; note it was previously incomplete without His righteousness:.1Corinthians 13:10; Deuteronomy 5:29).the law:.Matthew 5:17.

He rose again and sits beside the Father and is most concerned with us right now:.2Corinthians 5:15; 1Thessalonians 4:14. He came to die and open the way for us (John 10:17,18) to have a relationship with the Father, making us dead to sin.

-Christ came to reconcile the world, not accounting sins people may still have in their lives (2Corinthians 5:19:."To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation") and being made sin for us (2Corinthians 5:21) so that we could now have a relationship with the Father.....continue?
