Today, Incarnation and Jesus dying upon the cross are in view as necessary aspects of full divine revelation.  In addition to sacred knowledge that equips the living to apprehend the mystery of GOD, revelation declares eternal purpose, exposes the hidden adversaries to divine will, and provides sacred law with frameworks for discernment of corruption, defilement, iniquity, and sin.  The living must receive fresh endowments of spirit substance that join the created to the Creator, and that operate in recognizing and responding to spirit matter outside oneself within events, objects, other persons, and ongoing life process.  Readers are encouraged to reflect upon how this is stated using the following Scriptures, and the presentation below:

John 10:  9-11, King James Version (KJV):  9 I am the door:  by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.  10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy:  I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.  11 I am the good shepherd:  the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.

John 10:  15-18, KJV:  15 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father:  and I lay down my life for the sheep.  16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold:  them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.  17 Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.  18 No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.

Hebrews 1:  1-3, KJV:  1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,  2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;  3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high:

Colossians 1:  18-20, KJV:  18 And he is the head of the body, the church:  who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.  19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;  20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.

Why did a god had to have his one & only son tortured & killed to save mankind?

I do apologize if my opinion is offensive, but why have him killed, what ever happened to animal sacrifice or just save mankind without going through all that trouble

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.  Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:  According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:  Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,  To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.  In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;  Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence;  Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:  That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:  In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:  (Ephesians 1:  2-11, KJV)

“Elle Jay”, in the same way putting forth the original Creation combined multiple contributions and operations carried out by the fullness of divinity (we say, the Godhead), for Deity to discover, come to know, to be knowable to, and become known by created beings and living creatures various sacred processes have been called into being that together we call “revelation”.  Included are atonement, covenant, divine law, forgiveness, Incarnation, longsuffering, promise, prophecy, rebirth, resurrection, and sanctification.  Trust that, despite time and space, through operations of the Holy Spirit, blood and truth from the cross are flowing to here and now.  To realize and “see” the active presence of spirit, the living must possess sacred knowledge and deposits of spirit content from the makeup of GOD.  The eternal and exalted character, nature, sovereignty and substance of divinity does not become understood to finite beings having their own measure of awareness and self-will by their usual use of finite tools and frameworks for intellect (e.g., appetite, logic, philosophy, science, sensation, space, technology, time).  Permanently separating the original Creation from sin also requires various divine operations that pertain to cleansing, correction, and duration.  Included are confession, death, judgment, redemption, sacrifice, and the second death.  By appearing upon the earth using the form of a man, GOD has further demonstrated and called forth from his Creation the correct relationship for acknowledgment, exchange and interaction with divinity.   Included have been authority, compassion, empathy, gratitude, humility, power, praise, prayer, and wisdom that otherwise would have remained invisible and unseen.  Consider how this is stated using language from the Bible:

(1.)  John 1:  17-18, King James Version (KJV):  17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.  18 No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.

(2.)  John 5:  20-22, KJV:  20 For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth:  and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.  21 For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.  22 For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:

(3.)  2nd Corinthians 6:  14-18, KJV:  14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers:  for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?  15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?  16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.  17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.  18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

There is far more to be said, understood, and spiritually apprehended.  (For example, (4.)  Galatians 4:  4-6, KJV:  4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,  5 To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.  6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
