|Why Did Jesus Really Come To The Earth? by AmiableOne: 10:16am On Sep 09, 2018|
By Adekanmi Jonathan
Have you ever wondered why Jesus had to come to this earth? Read on to find out!
Some think Jesus came so we can become rich. Well, that’s wrong because before Jesus came, many people have been rich. The trend continues today because even people who do not believe in Jesus are also rich!
During his earth walk, people thought Jesus was going to become a political leader and save the Jews from the Romans. Even his disciples thought along these lines. But that was not why Jesus came!
So why did he come?
The answer can be found in Matthew 1 when an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph, Mary’s husband. Let’s do a quick read of what the angel said.
Mat 1:20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.
Mat 1:21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
Mat 1:22 Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,
Mat 1:23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
The angel instructed Joseph to name the child Jesus because he will save his people from their sins.
Some think what the angel meant was that Jesus would die for the sins of people. Well, that’s not exactly correct. The word “save” confirms it. So what did the angel mean?
In essence, the angel was saying that Jesus would come and give people the ability to live above sin. He was going to give them the power to live a sinless life.
The word “save” as used by the angel connotes that sin is a master of everyone that descended from Adam. And that’s true! Everybody born into this world is an automatic slave to sin.
Even David was not free from this because he acknowledged this problem in his prayer to God.
Psa 51:5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.
He affirms that everyone who is conceived and born received the Adamic nature which is forever subject to sin. Why is that?
Rom 6:16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
By this principle, whoever we willingly obey is our master. So, when Adam willingly followed the suggestion of Satan in the garden, he yielded his control and independence to Satan.
Adam reproduced in that state of submission to sin and the devil, which is why all humans born are subject to sin.
No one teaches a little child to lie or steal. He/she just naturally expresses his submission (slavery) to sin. This was why Cain could kill his brother, Abel, even though nobody before him had died.
Who taught Cain how to kill? No one! How then did he “invent” murder? The answer is sin. Sin will always find expression and that’s what happened.
So, the angel was telling Joseph that Jesus will save people from their sins. Above paying for their sins, he will set them free to live a life where sin is no longer in control.
Today, we have people who are slaves to many things like adultery, fornication, drug abuse, stealing, lying and other works of the flesh. They want to be free but they can’t seem to stop. If you’re one of those under the hold of sin, you’re the reason why Jesus came!
A look at Jesus saving a woman from Sin
In John 8, a woman was caught in adultery and was brought to Jesus. Now, the Law of Moses, which was like a constitution for the people of Israel at that time, said such people caught in the act deserved death by stoning. (Deut. 22:21-22)
So, they brought the woman to Jesus. Rather than approve her death, Jesus saved her by divine wisdom such that everyone that was ready to stone her left her alone. Let’s read a short portion of that story.
Joh 8:10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?
Joh 8:11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
Jesus told her he won’t condemn her. Notice that Jesus didn’t deny that she did wrong; he just said he won’t condemn her. It’s like saying, “I don’t want to blame you even though you did it; instead, I want to help you.” Isn’t Jesus wonderful?
When he saved her from her accusers, he then told her to go and sin no more. He saved her from the consequence of her sin and empowered her with those words to go and sin no more. Beyond that, he would later go to Calvary and pay for her sins. How gracious!
Jesus still saves today!
Friends, no matter what sin that has caged you and it seems there is no freedom for you, I want to let you know that Jesus came to save people from their sin.
Jesus can save you from that grip of sin if you desire to be free. He won’t condemn you! He won’t blame you! Instead, he wants you to come as you are so he can help you. See what he said:
Luk 5:31 And Jesus answering said unto them, They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick.
You don’t have to wait till you’re fine to go to the doctor; your sickness qualifies you for his attention. Likewise, don’t wait till you’re good enough before you come to Jesus.
Come as you are! He wants to help you.
Will you let Jesus help you today?

If you would like to accept Jesus as your saviour, say the following prayer.
“Dear Lord God, I come unto you in the name of Jesus Christ. I believe that Jesus died and rose again. I receive the eternal life you promised into my spirit. I am saved by the finished works of Christ. I’m born again. I’m a now a child of God. Amen.”
If you just said that prayer, congratulations! Welcome to the family of God!
For prayers and counselling, I encourage you to send me a PM. God loves you dearly!

other prophets that came ahead couldn't redeem human kind..they can heal, deliver but couldn't lay down there lives to bring man back to God...That is what differentiate Jesus from them...

The entire concept is a pretty arbitrary one. Why did God have to go through the rigmarole of blood sacrifice to forgive sins?

Jesus is God himself
And God himself is Jesus
And God himself came down to earth to save man

Religious topics are too sensitive to delve into and analyze critically without ruffling feathers and offending many.
It could make or mar one so, I'm gladly passing on this like I usually do even though I might have an opinion.
Those in favour say aye, those against say nay...
The ayes have it.
Enjoy my siggy

That's great.... Jesus came to save Us from SIN... it means SIN... was a master ... that is why it was difficult for people to live without sin... because a soul will do what is the will of His master...
Since death is the reward for sin.. someone had to die for Man before Man can be freed... and it cant be a Man who was born under sin that will die for Man..its not possible.. a sinner cant take the place of a sinner...
So Jesus had to come.. a God in the image of Man..(He is the seed of God.. their was no need for the DNA of a Man to get Him in d womb of Virgin Mary..which cant be explained with biology.. His seed was spiritual nd that's Why He is the Son of God..so He was free from SIN right from the womb)
.. .. He died for Man and freed Him from SIN.. so a Man can decide to give His life to God .. and Live without sin...but the nature of Man cannot achieve this on its own... it was therefore needed for God to give the Holy Spirit to help Man live a life of Dominion..
Life is not all about eating and drinking... there is a presence that is superior to Man.. that U cannot see with Ur eyes. Feel with Ur body .. hear with Ur ears or touch with Ur hands.. the sooner U believe this... the better ..enough of religions that doesn't make reference to Ur place in the Spirit...
This is the true gospel

To come and die. I don't even get why he have to die in the first place sha.
The reason he have to die is not rational but what do I know? Let them believe whatever they deem best.

There's no historical record that a man named JESUS ever lived here on earth. This story is work of literature written by Rome to control slaves and wider population in the Roman emire by putting fear of God in citizens. Its time you all stop worshiping satan who've deceived you to call him Jesus.

According to the story Jesus came to sacrifice him self unto him self over the weekend so that mankind can have a personal relationship with him.

Stop the confusion...
Do u even know the meaning of SIN? u are making it look like an entity that no one has dominion over..
To sin is to transgress against God's law which is like committing a crime. A crime is committed when the law is transgressed. Now if a law is broken, the authority has the right to pardon or punish depending on the offence committed.
So why would God who is the author and the judge of this laws come down to pay for the sins of human that HE alone could pardon or punish?
why would HE punish Himself for what he could have decide to pardon or punish

It's unfortunate that many people believe this nonsense and they keep selling it to people in 2018.
Jesus and his stories are pure myths stolen from ancient Egypt
Horus was a God born of virgin. They replaced Horus with Jesus
Anup baptised Horus. They replaced Anup with John
If you need to learn more then research and unlearn this nonsense while relearning the truth
