The Purpose of Christmas
The Purpose of Christmas
Redemption, Remission, Repurposing, Reconciliation, and Restoration are words which can be used for God’s purpose to send Jesus to earth for HIS ultimate New Construction, New Creation Plan and Destiny for mankind.
This is the Christmas plan.
Mankind lost God’s original Plan A through the fall with Adam and Eve. This brought eternal death, sickness and disease. This brought the Satanic rule and reign as the Prince of this world. Man is operating on Plan B which is not God’s purpose for man.
God sent HIS son to restore, redeem, re-purpose and reconcile ALL mankind, for those who receive HIM as their Lord, back to the original Plan A. The original plan is life abundantly, in forever fellowship, in right relationship with God.
God’s New Creation Plan is to restore and redeem that which was lost through the High Treason of Adam at the fall. God made us the Righteousness of God in Christ Jesus so that we can enter into HIS PRESENCE. We have restoration, reconciliation and redemption to Plan A, the New Creation, based upon what Jesus Christ did, not anything we have done.
7 In Him we have redemption (deliverance and salvation) through His blood, the remission (forgiveness) of our offenses (shortcomings and trespasses), in accordance with the riches and the generosity of His gracious favor,
(This is now-redemption is NOW!)
8 Which He lavished upon us in every kind of wisdom and understanding (practical insight and prudence),
(Wisdom is in the Spirit, not reason and intellectual knowledge – this is why many don’t understand and receive God’s love at CHRISTmas)
9 Making known to us the mystery (secret) of His will (of His plan, of His purpose). [And it is this:] In accordance with His good pleasure (His merciful intention) which He had previously purposed and set forth in Him,
10 [He planned] for the maturity of the times and the climax of the ages to unify all things and head them up and consummate them in Christ, [both] things in heaven and things on the earth. Ephesians 17-10 AMP
Because of the High Treason of Adam, Man operates through reason and intellectual understanding. Man misses the mysteries of God which is Spirit. The fallen, un-redeemed man operates on the five senses which cannot see, feel, taste, hear and smell the Spirit of God’s redeeming love for ALL mankind.
Life begins with CHRISTmas. Life is in CHRISTmas. God’s redemption plan is in CHRISTmas.
