The Salvation That Comes Through Jesus Christ

Right from Genesis chapter three after Adam and Eve fell in the garden; man lost the authority and dominion given to him by God. Satan became the god of this world from then on. The situation was so pathetic because it appears as if the plan of God for mankind has been foiled. Right from Genesis chapter three verse five God promised a savior in the form of 'the seed' of the woman. It appears as if that word of prophecy will not come to pass because for several years after that there was nobody that appears on earth that was able to take up that title of 'the seed of the woman' that will defeat the devil and take back the dominion that he stole from Adam. Everybody became a sinner right from the time they were conceived in the womb because they were conceived in the likeness of Adam who sinned. This Adamic nature had already condemned everyone as sinners. Rom 3:23. For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. The person that must come to save the world must be born in a different way not in the order of Adam. Looking at the birth of Jesus we would see that it was not in the order of man, the genes and chromosomes of man was not in Him, so He did not carry the sinful and condemned Adamic nature which all of us are carrying. Hence it was only Jesus Christ that qualifies for that all important position. Matt 1: 21. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins. And also the meaning of the name Jesus is Savior. Did Jesus live up to that? The answer is yes because the account of His life in the bible shows that €He went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed because God was with Him.' Act 10:38. How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and how he went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with him. John3:16 says For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. This tells us that there is no other person approved by God to save man but Jesus Christ. Act 4:12 also says that €Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.€ Salvation is a spiritual thing which no human words can completely explain, it is better experienced, that is why it is difficult to explain to people some times, except by the help of the Holy Spirit. When you get the salvation that comes from Jesus Christ you will be in tune with your maker because that old Adamic nature will be removed and you will now begin to enjoy a new life in Christ through the help of the Holy Spirit. Get daily bible verses for your spiritual growth, for man does not live by bread alone.
