Psalm 19:7 “The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul. The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy making wise the simple.”
Perfect words written by an imperfect man. A man who became King and messed up big time.
The lineage of David would bring about the Messiah, “The Lamb of God.” His coming was prophesied more than once in the Old Testament.
The birth of Jesus came along at a specific time and place as God ordained. How he came up with the schedule is anyone’s guess.
However with it came the writing of the New Testament.
The event marked history bringing with it correction of the Old Testament laws. God ushered in through Jesus the only way evil could be defeated.
For many doubters understanding God came down from Heaven and became a man through a virgin birth is ludicrous. But the blood had to be “holy and pure” and that could only come from God himself.
1 Corinthians 2:8 speaks of how the “rulers of this age” didn’t understood the wisdom of God. If they had they would never have crucified him. In a word God “duped” the enemy.
Many today believe everyone is under God’s wrath or judgment. If that were true Jesus would be dying over and over for our sins even for those who have accepted him.
Romans 8:7 “The sinful mind is hostile to God. It does not submit to God’s law nor can it do so.”
Those who reject God also reject his laws which is where his wrath and judgment appear.
Romans 8:1 “Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.”
History completely changed when Christ was born. 33 years later his death and resurrection became the focal point of our existence.
The depth of what Christ did for us is unseen by many which is tragic. Not only did he save us from “hell” he gave us himself.
What does it mean “he gave us himself?”
