Why Christ Died?
God forgave in the Old Testament because forgiveness is a characteristic of love and God is love. So … why did Christ die?
2 Chronicles 7:14 if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
Christ died to remove the need for forgiveness.
In the sanctified human vessel of Jesus, God entered human flesh to reconcile His creation back to Himself. For there to be reconciliation, unrighteousness had to be destroyed because God is holy. By infusing His powerful spirit of truth and love into this earth through Christ; in time that spirit would destroy the lies, the sin, thus death WITHIN mankind leaving righteousness to reign. 2 Corinthians 5:19
By becoming one of us, God entered the pit, darkness, sin, death, this flesh world and He infused His spirit of light here, as a root, to be resurrected in us in the end days. Romans 5:10 Isaiah 53:2 This resurrection of His Spirit IN mankind would bring in His eternal reign of righteousness by transforming mankind’s souls. As long as any reign is external people will stray, the reign has to be on the inside, this is what God did through Christ. Jesus Christ physically resurrecting 2000 years ago was a testimony of His powerful resurrection to occur in mankind when His spirit resurrects many in the end days. John 6:40, Romans 5:12-21, 2 Peter 1:19
As Christ spirit grows in us; we become holy creations living righteously. Romans 5:17 Thus righteousness begins to be established in the earth.
This union of our spirit and Christ’s spirit is the marriage of us and Christ. The consummation of the marriage occurs as Christ enters our spirit and places His seed of light is us that grows in us into eternal creations. Proverbs 4:18 As with a human marriage, which is consummated by the joining of the male and female, so we are married to Christ when His Spirit infuses ours and a new spirit is born in us. This is in part why we receive a new name, because we have a new spirit. Matthew 16:17-18, Revelation 2:17 When He starts bringing us to life by infusing our spirit with His, then we have eternal life for the corrupted spirit in us drys up as His spirit of righteousness grows within us. His spirit destroys all sin, takes over, and governs our souls for eternity. Thus, we are one with Him for eternity. John 17:3, 17, 21-22
The Holy Spirit has been here since the physical resurrection of Christ Jesus to prepare us to be unified to Christ’s Spirit. This is why He is our teacher to teach us all things. 1 John 2:27 Christ is at the door. Rev 3:20 Those who answer the knocking and embrace Christ’s spirit are those who sought God in truth and spirit, were taught by the Holy Spirit, and went through the death of their corrupted spirit so they could receive a new spirit. Matthew 22:14, Revelation 12:11 They have a true fear of God and follow Him alone, versus, following the commandments of mankind/religion. Proverbs 19:23, Isaiah 29:13 By the Holy Spirit, they’ve been prepared with the spirit of wisdom to be joined with Christ’s spirit. John 6:45 Their growth begins the establishment of Christ’s kingdom on earth; a kingdom that comes from within out. Matthew 13:31, 1 Corinthians 15:22-24 They are the peacemakers, as Christ’s spirit joined to theirs makes peace in them and around them. Matthew 5:9
Because Christ is coming within us; He is coming as a thief to many. Revelation 3:3, 16:15 But to the elect, first fruits, He isn’t a thief for they are experiencing this union within them that is changing everything. 1 Thess 5:4 They are increasing in righteousness, love, honor, kindness, thus peace and rest in these days of mounting tribulation for others. 2 Thess 1:7-8, Proverbs 15:24 But as the elect continue to grow, the spirit of Christ in the earth will be undeniable. In the coming days, it will be made known who is filled with Christ and who isn’t as His spirit will show itself mighty in the souls joining to Him. 1 Corinthians 4:5,Matthew 7:22, Matthew 25:32-33
Christ died and resurrected to bring a fallen mankind back to God because of His love for us. To understand the purpose of His life is to understand the mystery of the gospel of eternal life. Romans 16:25 This is why if you are looking on the outside for Christ’s return at this time, you are looking in the wrong place.
