PURPOSE of JESUS the Work of God
. . . "This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent" (John 6:29b).
Christ's purpose for coming to earth was to destroy the works of the devil (I John 3:8). Biblical history gives us the background of Satan arriving upon the earth before Adam (Luke 10:18, Genesis 1:2). Therefore the redemption of man was a by-product of Christ coming to earth to destroy Satan, who was given the power of death (Hebrews 2:4) over mankind by Adam. God decided to come to earth Himself to destroy the enemy, so in preparation He chose Israel as the people to make a cultural setting that He may enter.
The Work of God
The biggest lie every believed is that Satan or hell is not real. Yes, it is true the devil is real. Initially, an archangel called Lucifer the Bible reveals that Lucifer lost his position and was cast down to earth becoming Satan. The Bible also contains information about the planet's title deed beings transferred to Satan from Adam through disobedience. This power remained in the clutched hands of Satan until Christ came remained obedient unto death and fulfilled the prophecy of bruising the head of a serpent.
Satan asked Jesus to worship him in exchange for glory, honor, riches and fame (which Satan could offer because he gained such control from Adam). Jesus victoriously warded off Satan with the Word of God and completed his assignment becoming the greatest figure in history; shifting time, redeeming man, recapturing the title deed that Adam relinquished and most importantly completing His assignment which was to destroy the work of Satan
It's Time Saints!
Now, Satan tries to deceive man after losing to Christ. A saddening fact is that the Church endowed with all power seemingly allows Satan’s follies to persist. If you are a Blood washed Christian indeed you are accountable today like no other time in your life. It’s time for these antics to cease. God’s elect are heavily targeted and left seemingly without allies or friends when Satan’s PR game is running on full blast. Leaders today need our help. If you cannot, follow lead. It’s always time fear God!
Don’t be deceived Satan is not the owner of the planet. His followers have wealth, but it’s allusive. News flash! Satan lost, and his power base built upon deceit and fear. He is only worthy to be ignored. The fallen angel still wants to rule over death by deceiving the living during their lifetime. Misery … Satan wishes greetings as we welcome one another, but even the liar knows he is lying; but, what hope is there for one who has no hope. Satan has no hope of redemption. Neither do the angels that knew the truth and glided in proximity to the Holy God but decided to follow Lucifer. Not the case with humanity, we have a hope of redemption as long as we breathe unless we foolishly call the Holy Spirit a liar. This folly is the pinnacle of deception called perdition.
Study to show yourself approved a workman by your Creator.
Map during the life of Abraham
The Get up and Move Faith
If there were people that had preeminence to God it would have been Israel, Gods firstborn (Ex 4:22). Nevertheless, God is not a respecter of person; yet, He is Faithful to His Word and His covenants. Jesus is born among Judean brethren to a Levite maid (Mary) born in Joseph’s family who was of Judean descent. God made a provision for man through a man named Abram. Later his offspring would become the household that God would use to enter humanity and bless all. Abram embraced a novel concept of accepting one God (monotheism) which was a revolutionary idea in his home of Ur, a bustling metropolis in ancient Mesopotamia. God asked Abram without provocation to get up and move. He adhered and received a pledge through him “all the families of the earth be blessed” (Genesis 12:3). This back-drop of the rebirth needed for sinful man. Abram became Abraham and his great-grandson, Judah received an exact promise that would yield Christ from His lineage (Is. 6:14) the One who would be able to save man from sin and restore humanity to God. The family of God’s first born rejected God’s only begotten son and continue to look for a Messiah to this day. Even though many Jews have reconciled with Christianity as their reality those that still reject Christ grieves, the heart of God, who remains faithful to the promises made to Abraham.
He was God all the Time
Mary the chosen maiden from the daughters of Levi was impregnated by the Holy Spirit and conceived God’s only begotten Son, a sinless soul. Medical science proves that the blood of a pregnant woman may differ from the blood of a fetus and that genetic makeup of the unborn is determined upon conception. In the placenta the unborn is nourished by a pregnant woman after conception. Furthermore, a fetus has a fully formed heart and blood vessels after 16 weeks. Infants develop a distinct circulatory system with a distinct blood type. The blood type of Jesus whom was conceived of the Holy Ghost (Matthew 1:20) was not from Adam’s genetic code but directly pure from God. While the fetus was forming in Mary’s placenta, His blood did not intermingle with the blood of Mary. Jesus was of a Melchizedekian breed that is to say, a man without beginning or end and those like Melchizedek held the office of Prophet, Priest and King at once. Also like Melchizedek, Christ was without a discoverable origin, for He was there in the beginning (John 1:1) and observed the fall of Lucifer from Heaven. He later became the central focus of the work of God and now sits upon a throne that would never cease (Gen. 49:10) “The work of God is to believe on Him on whom he sent” (John 6:27). In Solomon’s day this was a mystery but now believing on Jesus is the work of God and by faith simultaneously believers become instruments for destroying the works of Satan
King Solomon of Israel also of Judean descent lived approximately 1000 years before the birth of God’s only begotten Son, proclaimed that the works of God were unknown but clued to thus by saying what could have been one of the most complex enigmas of his day “As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all” (Ecc. 11:5). The works of God unknown at Solomon’s time became manifest in the birth of Jesus “And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger (Luke 2:12).
Lucifer in the Hebrew tongue is pronounced haw-lal. Its English homonyms are halo or hello. Satan remembering his glory days wants people in mass to sing Hello in instead of praising God saying, Hallelujah! Some songs that have Hello in their title sung by millions upon the earth produced by top artists in the last fifty years. The Beatles, Lionel Richie and The Doors, and more recent artists have Mega Hits entitled "Hello" like Eminem, Beyonce, and Adele. Maybe when picking up the phone, we should say Hallelujah or Glory to God instead of Hello.
