Today, reply is on the divine plan and eternal purpose in the appearance of Jesus Christ on the earth. Jesus was sent to continue and complete a revelation of divinity to mankind that was begun in the Creation of Adam through sacred law, rather than to complete a plan to recover mankind from the consequences of sin by the death of Jesus on the cross. Multiple divine operations beyond redemption and salvation have been carried out through the Incarnation, death, and resurrection of Jesus that have established immortal, incorruptible, unseen divinity as a continuing and active presence in the earth. It is written: 2nd Peter 1: 2-11, King James Version (KJV): 2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, 3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: 4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. 5 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; 6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; 7 And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. 8 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins. 10 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall: 11 For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

In theory Jesus was sent on a mission to die to cleanse humanity of original sin. So why do some extremists blame Jews for killing him?

He was intended by divine plan to die, right?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified. (Romans 8: 28-30, KJV)

joko”, forgiveness establishes possibilities for covenant relationship with GOD, yet, does not answer all the demands of final judgment and the sanctions recorded within the divine law. Thus, many Christians trust that Christ did not come to atone for the sins of mankind so much as he came to reveal the character and nature of immortal, invisible, divinity. The appearance of GOD on the earth using human flesh and life process as Jesus Christ (we say, the Incarnation) has included multiple finite and eternal operations that express divine prerogative, eternal purpose, and the sovereign will of divine fullness (i.e., Deity; the Godhead; the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit). So to speak, in the same way death (sleep) was used to accomplish the creation of a female (Eve) from the rib of a living male (Adam) without also destroying all things for a “do-over”, or calling forth existence and life ex nihilo (from nothing), mankind as a companion to divinity is being restored through divine operations upon the Word and upon the endowment of life essence (breath; spirit; utterance; word) that was imparted to mankind at Creation from the makeup of GOD. Included are the use of birth, growth, inheritance, priestly service, death, and resurrection. Adam “fell” through betrayal, deceit, negligence and opposition to the continued existence of sacred law. Where sinners undergo the death and burial of their inborn spirit, operations that are spirit in process and substance establish their existence through sacred rebirth. Inseparable aspects of divinity are provided that include balance, commitment, faith, holiness, longsuffering, lovingkindness, oneness without sameness, personhood, wisdom, and wrath against sin. Developing believers are to become mature/ripe while on the earth through such features as discovery, gradual growth, sacred practice (e.g., praise, prayer, worship), the fulfillment of prophecy and divine promise, unselfish service, the study of the holy writings, and suffering. All who belong to Christ are to be harvested from the earth by the Lord at his Advent (his appearing; the Rapture; the Second Coming). Members of the spiritual body established by Jesus (the church) exist now as the new creation, and later are to become immortal as the offspring and vessels of GOD. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible, and a selection from the music ministry of Steve Amerson:

(1.) Exodus 34: 4-8, King James Version (KJV): 4 And he hewed two tables of stone like unto the first; and Moses rose up early in the morning, and went up unto mount Sinai, as the LORD had commanded him, and took in his hand the two tables of stone. 5 And the LORD descended in the cloud, and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the LORD. 6 And the LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth, 7 Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and to the fourth generation. 8 And Moses made haste, and bowed his head toward the earth, and worshipped.

(2.) 2nd Corinthians 5: 17-21, KJV: 17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; 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. 20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God. 21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

(3.) Romans 8: 14-17, KJV: 14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. 15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. 16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: 17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, (4.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FKGl_6-DaVo.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.
