THE LORD JESUS CAME AS LIGHT, TO MAKE US SEE.
“Once more Jesus addressed the crowd. He said, I am the Light of the world. He who follows Me will not be walking in the dark, but will have the Light which is Life.” (John.8:12; Amplified Bible)
He Came To Make Us See God’s Purpose For Creating Us.
As important as Man’s forgiveness and redemption is to God, for which sake, God forgave and redeemed mankind through the sacrifice of Himself, as a Lamb- Offering before the foundation of the world, more important to Him, is his purpose for man’s forgiveness and redemption.
Accepting forgiveness and redemption, through faith in the great sacrifice of the Lord Jesus, without a sincere desire from within, to understand and accomplish God’s purpose for our forgiveness and redemption, is unwittingly making our forgiveness and redemption null and void, even after doing wonderful works in His Name. (Matthew.7:21-23-27; 1Corinthians.13:1-3-8, 9-13)
Not many Ministers and believers in the Lord Jesus, understand that the pre- eminence and immutability of God’s purpose to fill creation with his fullness through man, is the reason for man’s forgiveness and redemption, through the great sacrifice of the Lord Jesus. The aforesaid is why much emphasis has been made about the sacrifice of the Lord Jesus, without a corresponding emphasis, of the true purpose of the sacrifice; men therefore gladly accept the offering of the Lord Jesus for their forgiveness and redemption, and care less about understanding and accomplishing the great purpose of their forgiveness and redemption. It is like accepting a job offer and the salary that goes with it, without a desire to understand and do the job. We know the consequence.
The pre-eminent purpose of the Father for man to function on earth, as Sons, Temples and Bodies, for the tangible expression of the fullness of God’s glorious presence, as the Father did through the Lord Jesus, and even more, is what the Lord Jesus came as Light, into our world of darkness, to make us see.
