The Plan of Salvation: Why God became a man

The name Jesus means “Jehovah Salvation”. (Fausset’s Bible Encyclopaedia, Page 359) God’s own law demanded justice for sin and the penalty was death. Because all men were shaped in iniquity and conceived in sin (Psalms 51:5), no man was found worthy (Revelation 5:4). To pay the price God became a man, born in the humility of a stable as a sacrificial lamb.

You may ask yourself, “What relationship will Messiah be to God?” He was God. The Pharisee’s in Jesus day understood this when they accused Jesus of making Himself God.

A key is given to us when Jesus said to be baptised in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost (Matthew 28:19). We see these are clearly not names but titles. The explanation is in Act 2:38 when Peter, the man with the keys to the kingdom (because he understood who Jesus was. Matthew 16:16) said to be baptised in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Search the history and you will find that institution of the trinity doctrine was the result of political intervention by Constantine at the council of Nicaea in AD325. The trinity is not even in the Bible. His motivation was to bring unity in his kingdom by creating common ground between the pagans who worshiped multiple god’s and Christians who worshiped One. This was just the beginning of the introduction of pagan religion into Christianity by organised religion which has substituted idolatry for the Word of God.

And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory. (1 Timothy 3:16)

Colossians 1:
14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or
powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
17 And he is before all things, and by him, all things consist.
18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.
19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fullness dwell;
20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth or things in heaven.
21 And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled
22 In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:
