“Behold, the Lord GOD will come with strong hand, and his arm shall rule for him: behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.” (Isaiah 40 :10)kjv
Our lord is a mighty god, and he expects us, his children, to be equally mighty if we are to spend all of eternity with him.
When the god created man, he was powerful and full of strength. He was given dominion.
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. (Genesis 1 : 26-28)kjv
But when man fell and committed sin. He drifted away from god and was cursed. That curse caused man to be weak in life.
However, god’s eternal purpose for man has never changed. He made sure that we when man fell over the centuries through leaders, prophets, and judges to bring man to a perfect place, but yet man followed his heart and drifter far from god.
To free man from the shackles of sin, God had to descend to Earth and took the form of a man.
We were full of sin, but God provided a way out for us through Jesus Christ. It has long been prophesied that a savior will emerge to deliver mankind from sin.
Jesus Christ came searching for us, he led the way, he died on the cross, he was wounded for our transgressions and he was whipped for our sickness. He endured great suffering in order to perfect mankind and prepare man for eternal life with God.
“Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.” (Isaiah 53 4-5) kjv
The divine plan for mankind has not changed, and God’s word is infallible.
